SAN JOSE – John MacLean was officially hired by the Sharks to be an assistant coach less than three weeks ago and it was a scramble for him to get to know all of the players, particularly the young guys. “It has been a bit of a whirlwind,” MacLean said. “I got in here a week before (camp), trying to get up to speed with everything.

Trump went all-out to win farmer support; now they’re all in on Biden’s infrastructure plan

By Katie Lobosco | CNN Former President Donald Trump sent billions in federal aid in a bid to win over America’s farmers — but now they’re all for President Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, in hopes it will mean fixing roads and bridges critical to the delivery of food to the rest of the nation.

It was drafted by lawmakers from both parties and passed the Senate with 19 Republican votes in August, but its fate remains uncertain with Democrats divided over tying it to a larger $3.5 trillion spending package. “We’ll take as much money the federal government can send… Read More

Mackenzie Standifer: I Don’t Care About My Dignity, I’ve Got Ryan Edwards!

The relationship between Ryan Edwards and his wife, Mackenzie, is … Well, it sure is something else, we’ll say that. Things were weird with them since the beginning — they started dating in 2016 when she was 19 and he was 28. She’d just got divorced from her first husband, her high school boyfriend who was also the father of her first child. Not too long after they started dating, Ryan proposed, and a few months after that, they got married. But it wasn’t your average ceremony, because all throughout their very short courtship, Ryan was struggling with an addiction to heroin. So instead of having the more traditional wedding… Read More
