          The Missouri Heat in Sharp Objects Isn't the Only Thing Making Us Sweat - Meet Detective Willis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

HBO's latest new series, Sharp Objects, is the closest onscreen adaptation to an image I've had in my head while reading a book maybe ever. That includes its selection of absolute hunk Chris Messina to play Richard Willis, a Kansas City detective sent to investigate a potential serial murder case in Wind Gap, MO. When the show's main character, journalist Camille Preaker (Amy Adams), first runs into Detective Willis in the novel, I immediately felt that he'd be effortlessly handsome - despite being kind of an assh*le at first - which is exactly the kind of role Messina thrives in, let's be real.

If you, too, felt like your lust for Detective Willis came on stronger than a Missouri heatwave, it may be because you've crushed on Messina before. The 43-year-old has been acting for quite some time (like most actors, you may have seen him in an episode or three of Law and Order), starring most notably in The Mindy Project as Mindy's love interest, Danny Castellano, for multiple seasons. He's also had staring and supporting roles in movies such as Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Julie & Julia (which also featured Amy Adams), and Argo.

Messina's part in Sharp Objects, however, may be the big role that could make him much more of a household name. Check out some of the roles Messina has played ahead, and then catch him investigating murders as Detective Willis on HBO on Sunday nights.

Vice President Mike Pence is on his way to Kansas City, Missouri. The anti-LGBTQ conservative will be helping out with a fundraiser for Republican Kevin Yoder who is seeking re-election during November’s midterm elections. But Pence will certainly be welcomed in a unique way in Kansas City—and it’s all thanks to a local radio station.

Alternative radio station 96.5 The Buzz tweeted out that they’ll be welcoming Pence with his very own ‘sausage fest’. That’s right! Tons of wieners in honor of Pence.

The radio station declares that it is a demonstration on Pence’s anti-LGBTQ positions. They will hand out a free hot dog to anyone who arrives—while supplies last. They’ll even be giving out vegan sausages for you less carnivorous types.

Earlier this year, London prepared itself for the arrival of Donald Trump by holding a large drag protest in his honor.

If you’re in Kansas City, head over to Pence’s sausage fest and be sure to wear as much rainbow apparel as possible. He’ll thank you for it!

          Nicas en MLB - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cuando la presente campaña de Grandes Ligas se puso en marcha había mucha expectación porque se vislumbraba como la temporada en la que Juan Carlos Ramírez se establecería como abridor de los Angelinos, en la que Erasmo Ramírez se graduaría como protagonista en la rotación de los Marineros y en la que Cheslor Cuthbert podría alcanzar un peldaño más con los Reales. Sin embargo, en el transcurso de los primeros meses de juego aparecieron las lesiones y de uno en uno los nicas fueron pasando a la lista de lesionados. 

Más tarde apareció Jonathan Loáisiga con los Yanquis, reavivando el entusiasmo entre la afición nacional, pero recientemente también fue enviado a la lista de inhabilitados. De tal forma que las lesiones han impedido la posibilidad de ver en acción al mismo tiempo a cinco jugadores de origen nicaragüense, el único que permanece activo es Alex Blandino.  Aquí un repaso por lo que ha sido la temporada de Juan Carlos, Erasmo, Cheslor, Jonathan y Blandino. 

J.C. y la Tommy John

Tras registrar dos derrotas en dos aperturas en la primera semana de abril y de retirarse del montículo sintiendo rigidez en el antebrazo derecho en su última salida el 7 de abril ante los Atléticos de Oakland, los Angelinos decidieron enviar a Juan Carlos a la lista de lesionados por diez días y luego los médicos del equipo resolvieron recomendarle que se sometiera a la cirugía Tommy John.

Ramírez aceptó y pocos días después fue operado. Actualmente se encuentra recuperándose de la operación y con la mirada puesta en la campaña del 2019, cuando se dé su regreso. El capitalino terminó temprano la temporada y dejó números que evidenciaban el mal estado de su brazo. Balance de 0-2 y efectividad de 9.45 producto de haber permitido siete carreras limpias en 6.2 innings lanzados.

Erasmo, fuera desde abril

Lo de Erasmo Ramírez no pintó para bien desde el principio. El derecho de Rivas se perdió gran parte del Spring Training y las primeras semanas de la temporada regular. Luego apareció y solo pudo realizar dos aperturas, mismas que perdió recibiendo sendas palizas ante los Vigilantes de Texas y los Indios de Cleveland. Tras verlo deslucir permitiendo 11 carreras limpias en 9.2 episodios y determinar una tensión en el músculo redondo mayor de su brazo de lanzar, los Marineros decidieron ponerlo en la lista de lesionados el primero de mayo, desde entonces no ha vuelto al mejor beisbol del mundo.

Recientemente el nica ha realizado sesiones de bullpen y aunque no hay fecha específica de su regreso, se espera que pronto vuelva, pues ha manifestado sentirse bien después de cada sesión. Erasmo tiene récord de 0-2 y efectividad de 10.24. En dos salidas permitió siete cuadrangulares. 

Cheslor, entre dudas

Cheslor Cuthbert no juega con los Reales de Kansas City desde el 14 de mayo, cuando se fue de 3-0 con dos ponches ante el picheo de los Rays de Tampa Bay. Días después de esta presentación su equipo lo puso en la lista de lesionados como consecuencia de dolencias en la espalda.

Tras un tiempo considerable de recuperación, Ned Yost, el mánager de los Royals anunció el costeño realizaría 20 partidos de rehabilitación en Triple A, sin embargo, al día siguiente el equipo anunció que Cheslor sufrió una recaída de sus molestias en la espalda y esto le impediría seguir jugando en Ligas Menores, donde completó solo seis encuentros. De cuándo será su regreso al equipo grande no hay certeza. El nica presenta un promedio ofensivo de .194 como resultado de 20 imparables en 103 turnos al bate. Entre sus incogibles aparecen dos dobles y tres cuadrangulares.  

Loáisiga, dos semanas fuera

Ante la salida de Juan Carlos, Erasmo y Cheslor, con Alex Blandino tratando de sacarle el máximo provecho a su debut con los Rojos de Cincinnati, llegó la noticia de Jonathan Loáisiga y su ascenso a los Yanquis de Nueva York.

El novel lanzador impresionó y en cuatro aperturas forjó un récord de 2-0 y una efectividad de 3.00, con el agregado de haber dejado claro su potencial. No obstante, su equipo decidió enviarlo a Triple A para que realizara ciertos ajustes que le permitieran mejorar como lanzador.

El lunes pasado Jonathan pudo volver al equipo grande y abrir ante los Orioles de Baltimore, pero una inflamación en el hombro de su brazo derecho se lo impidió. De acuerdo con el último diagnóstico, el nica no presenta ningún daño estructural y por lo tanto solo necesita reposo para recuperarse, es por esto que no tendrá acción durante las dos próximas semanas. 

Blandino en pie de guerra

Alex Blandino debutó el 10 de abril con los Rojos y no tardó en mostrar sus recursos como artillero. Lo hizo bien siendo titular y no desentonó cuando empezó a funcionar como bateador emergente, sin embargo, la falta de actividad no le ha caído bien y apareciendo desde la banca su rendimiento ha bajado.

El único pelotero de origen nica activo en la MLB presenta un promedio ofensivo de 221 como resultado de 27 hits en 122 turnos, suma entre sus cañonazos cuatro dobles y un jonrón y agrega a su accionar ofensivo  ocho carreras impulsadas y 13 anotadas. Eso sí, se poncha 40 veces, más de las que conecta de imparable.

          COMING SOON!!! THE KANSAS CITY SAUSAGE FEST FOR VP PENCE: TASTELESS PROTEST OR SMART PROMO?!?!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Vice Prez Mike Pence is visiting Kansas City tomorrow to promote Prez Trump's tax plan and help 3rd District Rep. Yoder raise funds for the upcoming midterm election.

By far, the following event notice is the most important and probably the most clever local "counter-protest" we've seen which was celebrated today among the more "progressive" denizens of the local Internets who probably didn't realize that it's mostly just marketing for a struggling radio station . . .

(Some members of) The LGBTQ community in Kansas City and radio station 96.5 The Buzz are throwing a picnic of sorts for Vice President Mike Pence when he visits Kansas City to fundraise for Kansas Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder.

The station is calling it a "Mike Pence Sausage Fest."

Announced on Twitter, the station’s invitation to the event included a picture of Pence, with a sausage on a fork and a multi-colored flag behind him, representing the gay community.

The station tweeted, “Pence is not fan of the LGBTQ community and we’re no fan of his.”

The group argues the vice president encourages discrimination against their community and issues like spending government money on programs for conversion therapy, something Pence has denied, calling it "Fake News."

The event is scheduled to begin at about 11 a.m. and is being held at Barney Allis Plaza, with the promise of free hot dogs, while supplies last.

And so we ask . . .

IS THE BUZZ PLAYING KANSAS CITY PROGRESSIVES WITH A CHEAP MARKETING GIMMICK?!?

So far, there's really not much of a push for advocacy, voting or even attendees information on the issues at hand. Look at the event notice closely and it's mostly brand ID for the station and their corporate music playlist.

Whilst vulgarity has the respect of the TKC blog community . . . Mockery without some kind of point is essentially limp.

TIF for Tat: Political Contributions and Development Subsidies

"Working with data from the Missouri Ethics Commission and the Missouri Department of Labor, Show-Me Institute researchers set out to see if there was any correlation between tax-increment financing (TIF) awards and local political contributions. Using data from 2002 through 2017, we found a positive correlation between campaign giving and anticipated TIF plan values. Furthermore, we found that campaign donations often fell off in the time immediately after a TIF was granted. These findings are worrisome and suggest that access to at least one economic development program may be associated with a willingness to pay-to-play."

Congressman Cleaver Expresses Concern Over President’s Choice for SCOTUS Nominee

June 10, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II released the following statement on the selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the nominee for the next Supreme Court Justice.

"Granted by the authority given to him under the constitution, President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. While it is the President’s duty to nominate a justice, the Senate is given the responsibility of vetting and either confirming or denying the President’s selection.

After studying various decisions written by Judge Kavanaugh on some of the prominent issues of our time, I would be very concerned about the future of the highest court in the land, should he be confirmed.

Whoever becomes our next Supreme Court justice, he/she will have the ability to cast the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, to strike down pre-existing condition protections in the ACA, to roll back LGBTQ rights, to weaken American workers’ right to unionize, to eliminate affirmative action, and to strip away so many other rights that Americans currently appreciate. With this much at stake, it is essential that the Senate take a long look at past decisions and vet this nominee with the utmost scrutiny.

Below are only a few of the troubling decisions written by Judge Kavanaugh:

- Judge Kavanaugh has taken numerous positions that question his ability to be an independent check on the President, stating that investigations of presidents should be deferred while in office and a president needn’t obey it when he “deems the law unconstitutional.”

- Judge Kavanaugh argued that the D.C. Circuit should consider a claim that the ACA was unconstitutional. [CITE]

- Judge Kavanaugh argued that the Trump administration could keep a young girl in federal custody to prevent her obtaining constitutionally-protected health care. [CITE]

I have little doubt that Judge Kavanaugh is a good man and a legal expert, but his history on critical issues has been less than satisfactory and certainly not enough to warrant a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Confirmation of the next Supreme Court justice will shape the court for decades to come. It is not a decision to be taken lightly, especially when the very fundamental rights that many of us rely upon are at risk.”

The Royals scored more than five runs for the first time since June 4 and improved to 26-65 overall, percentage points ahead of Baltimore to avoid owning baseball's worst record.

          Harvest Moving Fast in Western Kansas      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

According to the July 9, 2018 USDA/NASS Kansas Crop Progress and Condition Report, winter wheat harvested was 92 percent, near 90 last year, and ahead of 85 for the five-year average. Winter wheat condition rated 16 percent very poor, 30 poor, 37 fair, 15 good and 2 excellent.

Eric Sperber, manager of Cornerstone Ag LLC in Colby, reported the harvest to be one of the fastest harvests for the area, which is currently about 80 to 90 percent complete. They took in their first load on June 27.

Because of the hail storms in the area, yields varied from field to field.

“We received a lot of hail in the area, losing anywhere from 750,000 to one million bushels of wheat this harvest,” Sperber said. “There were some fields that were zeroed out and some that were in the mid-70s, but the average was about 30 to 40 bushels per acre.”

He also said test weights were excellent, averaging around 61 pounds per bushel, and proteins were mostly 12.5 percent and higher.

Sperber said they got yet another hail storm on Saturday, July 7. “We have had five hail events since June 19, and fields that were missed from the previous storms got hit this time. Overall, the crop has good quality; unfortunately we lost fields due to the hail storms.”

Compared to other years, Sperber said this was an above average year, in terms of quality.

Lane Patmon, manager of Frontier Ag Inc in Seguin in Sheridan County, reported their first load was taken in on June 28, and they are 95 percent complete with harvest. He also said yields were anywhere from 10 to 60 bushels per acre, test weights ranged from 56.5 to 63 pounds per bushel, and proteins averaged around 13.4 percent.

Patmon said this is the first year they have tested for proteins.

“I noticed for this year our test weights are high, along with our proteins,” Patmon said. “Most years our tests weights are lighter and our proteins are higher. This year they both are higher together.”

Bill Spiegel, a farmer from Randall in Jewell County, finished with his harvest two weeks ago on June 24. Spiegel said wheat in his area normally ranges from 65 to 70 bushels per acre, but he reported that this year was about 10 bushels per acre less. The yield losses were due to dryness, as they didn't receive any rain from October until April.

He also said test weights were surprisingly good, until the area was hit with some rain showers.

“In one rain storm we got three inches of rain and by the time they got back into the field they lost about one to three pounds of test weight. It was one of those harvests where we are glad to have it done,” Spiegel said. “The crop didn't look good from the beginning. It turned out better than expected, but our expectations were really low to begin with.”

“Every year is different and with each year we go out with the best situation planned,” Spiegel said. “The rain produced weeds in the fields as well, but we got it all done, and we are ready to start planning for 2019 wheat harvest.”

Editor's Note: Each year the Kansas City Board of Trade (now part of the CME Group), the Kansas Grain & Feed Association, the Kansas Wheat Commission and Kansas Association of Wheat Growers provide updates of the Kansas wheat harvest. Today's update is the 16th report of the 2018 harvest.

Adalberto Mondesi hit a three-run homer and logged an RBI single for a career-high four RBIs as the Royals evened the series against the Twins at one game apiece. Ian Kennedy, who came off the DL earlier on Tuesday, left his start early due to left-side tightness and Brian Flynn went four strong innings to get the win for Kansas City, which scored more than five runs for the first time in 31 games.

 SUMMARY

A YA novel from USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen.

Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost.

Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.

There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.

Accidentals excerpt 1000 words

After the last course—chocolate mousse—the three of us go tripping back across the cold lawn in the dark, Aurora in the lead. I’m the tiniest bit tipsy and wearing heels. So naturally I stumble on a frozen clod of snow and nearly fall. But Jake catches my hand to steady me. “Thanks,” I breathe.
Curiously, his warm fingers remain curled around mine until we reached the door of Habernacker.
I try not to feel ridiculously excited about it.
He lets go when we all reach the third floor. When Aurora opens the door, he follows us inside until we all collapse on the S.L.O., with me in the center.
“Oh! I forgot to steal my plate,” I realize.
“Me too.” Aurora sighs.
Jake reaches into his jacket and pulls out a plate.
“Well done, Mr. Jake!” Aurora laughs. “The party in the annex starts in fifteen minutes.” She heaves herself off the squishy couch. “I have time to redo my makeup.”
I watch her walk over to the stereo, where my phone is already ensconced, and turn on our Christmas playlist. Then she grabs her makeup bag off her desk and leaves the room.
When the door clicks shut, neither Jake nor I speak for a moment. The low chords of a Straight No Chaser song play through our little speakers.
Suddenly, it’s awkward. We’ve been circling each other for a while now—since the night he was trying to be nice and I wrecked it.
“You’re probably sick of a cappella by now,” I say, just to find something to talk about.
But Jake turns slowly toward me and says something unexpected. “Rachel, I need to ask you a question.”
My stomach does a little flip flop, and I turn to face those blue eyes I love so much. “What?” I whisper.
“Well…” He clears his throat. There is a very long pause, during which I hold my breath. “Will you come skiing some time?”
I exhale. “I guess so?” Another beat of silence passes. “That was your big question?” I ask, feeling like I’ve missed something.
His color deepens. “Well, no. I just…” His brow furrows, as if he’s trying to explain some point of astronomy. I love his look of concentration. I’ve missed it.
Jake’s blue eyes lock on mine, and I see how our own orbits might finally collide. This time, I will not send the moment winging back into space. Instead, I lean an almost imperceptible degree in his direction.
And that’s all it takes.
Reaching up, Jake cups his hand to the side of my face. I’m still processing the sweet touch of his fingers when he leans in farther, his lips brushing the sensitive corner of my mouth. His eyes are tentative, seeking permission. My heart thuds with expectation.
And then—finally—Jake kisses me for real. We come together the way a well-timed drummer kicks into the chorus of a song—swiftly, and without hesitation.
We broke apart a moment later, eyeing each other while I try not to smile. “Can I do that again?” he asks, his voice rough. “That was my real question.”
“Well, since you asked so nicely…”
Jake makes a low noise of approval, then draws me closer. I reach up for the back of his neck, my fingers grazing that golden patch of skin I’ve always wanted to touch. He kisses me again, his arm finding the velvet waist of my dress and encircling me.
My heart flutters, but not from fear. Warm lips tease mine gently apart. And when his tongue tangles with mine, I lose myself.
He tastes like champagne. Everything is wild and sweet, until the moment Aurora’s voice rings out. “Ay, caramba!”
I feel an unwelcome rush of cool air between us as Jake retreats.
“I did say I was going into the bathroom, right? And not on a trip to Fiji?”
Neither of us says a word; we only look sheepishly at Aurora.
“Just to be clear, now I’m ducking into the bedroom for my coat, which only takes a second.” She steps into the bedroom, and I hear the rustling of fabric. Then she peers dramatically around the door frame. “Good listening! Now I’m going to the party. Will I see you both there? Don’t answer that. We’ll speak later.”
Jake laughs. “Sorry, Aurora.”
“I’ve seen worse.” She departs, the door closing behind her.
And now I’m self-conscious. Rising, I decide to fiddle with the music playlist. “Do you want to go to the party?”
“I’ll go. But I’m not great at parties. It’s all shouting over the music, drinking warm beer out of a plastic cup.”
“Then let’s not.” My fingers shake as I adjust the volume. I go back over to the sofa and sit down.
“So.” He clears his throat. “Where are you going for break?” As he asks, he takes one of my hands in his, massaging my palm with his thumb.
His light touch is so distracting that I almost forget to answer. “Kansas City,” I manage. “To meet my grandfather for the very first time.”
“Um, what?” He squeezes my hand.
So I tell Jake the embarrassing highlights of my weird story—that I hadn’t met Frederick until this past summer.
“Wow. I’m sorry,” he says.
“Don’t be.”
“I guess I’m not that offended now that you wouldn’t introduce me. If the normal waiting period is seventeen years.”
My laugh begins with an unladylike snort. Ah, well. “With me it’s just all soap opera, all the time. Believe it or not, a year ago I was really a boring person.”
“I don’t see how.” He regards me with darting eyes. “You look beautiful tonight.”
“It’s Aurora’s dress,” I whisper.
But Jake doesn’t seem to care. He slips his arms around my waist. Scooting closer, he slides his lips from my forehead, down my nose and onto my mouth. And we begin again.





I have to say I don’t read many YA books but Sarina Bowen is one of my favourite authors so I jumped at the chance to read The Accidentals and after reading this book I really don’t know why I have overlooked YA, this story drew me in and really left its handprint on my heart. 
Rachel a young girl who finds herself at 17 years old facing her biological father for the first time, he is a famous rock star and she needs him to take her in and rescue her from the system after losing the only parent she has ever known her mother..........
This book is very different to any other story I have read by this author but it was still as amazing as every other book I have read of hers, it’s a sweet beautifully written emotional story about a man and his daughter getting to know each other. I loved every character in this book and I loved the plot looking forward to reading more YA from the very talented Sarina Bowen. 





This was an enjoyable easy to read story that really touched my heart.
Spending time in a group home since her mother passed away Rachel is waiting for her 18th birthday till she can leave! When the social worker for the home asks her to come in as her “father” wants to see her, needless to say things get rather interesting after that meet!

I admired Rachel and what she has been through must have been difficult but to come out with a father and the way they are together is rather endearing to see!
I really liked the way the story unfolded and how things became for Rachel! I fell in love with the characters, their story and how it develops especially when Frederik is a big deal in the music world! I really loved his mum and dad, such real folks, spoke their mind!
I loved hearing how the past shaped the way things are today and I wondered how everything would go with Rachel. Will she love having her Dad around?
A truly great feel good story! Makes you cherish how your own life is!

          Fowler Leads Cardinals to 14-2 Rout of White Sox      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Dexter Fowler broke out of his funk in grand style.

The slumping outfielder hit his fourth career grand slam, All-Star Miles Mikolas tossed six innings of three-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Chicago White Sox 14-2 on Tuesday night.

Kolten Wong had four hits, including a two-run homer and a double, as every St. Louis starter except catcher Yadier Molina got at least one hit. Jose Martinez had three hits and two RBIs.

"(Fowler) has been working to get that feel, so that's something to build on," manager Mike Matheny said. "Just some big days all around. A big day for Kolten, getting four hits and the ball jumping for him, too."

Fowler lofted his sixth homer this season, but first since May 6, to cap the Cardinals' seven-run sixth. He finished with two hits and played right field in only his second start since June 27.

Fowler entered batting just .167 — and .111 in his previous 20 games.

"It's awesome, especially when you've been scuffling at the plate trying to get timing and stuff," he said. "You get a pitch and you barrel it up, it feels good."

Wong is batting only .221 this season, but has 10 hits in his last 18 at-bats. He said the surge is a result of working on swing mechanics with hitting coach John Mabry.

"I'm not really worried about my swing," Wong said. "I'm just really focused on seeing the ball, hitting the ball right now."

Mikolas (10-3), selected to his first All-Star team Sunday, faced only three hitters in five of his six innings. The right-hander allowed two runs and struck out six.

Charlie Tilson drove in two runs for the White Sox in the third, one of only two innings in which Chicago had baserunners against Mikolas.

White Sox starter Dylan Covey (3-5) lasted five innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on nine hits and two walks. The right-hander lost his fourth straight decision and has an 11.70 ERA in his last five starts.

Mikolas came out dealing, fanning five of the first six White Sox hitters. Covey started strong, too, retiring eight of the first nine Cardinals batters and striking out four.

Then with two outs in the third, four consecutive line-drive singles gave St. Louis a 2-0 lead.

"I felt good early on," Covey said. "I think the ball started creeping up in the zone as I went. Groundballs turn into base hits. (St. Louis) strung a few together. (I) struggled to get it back down."

The White Sox tied it 2-all in the bottom half. Tilson's single, the third straight hit off Mikolas to start the inning, drove in both runs.

The Cardinals moved back ahead 3-2 in the fourth when Jedd Gyorko scored from third on a forceout. St. Louis made it 4-2 in the fifth on Molina's sacrifice fly.

Then the Cardinals broke it open in the sixth with seven runs on three hits and four walks.

Omar Narvaez's passed ball and a wild pitch by reliever Bruce Rondon allowed two runs to score. Rondon issued three straight walks to force in another run before Fowler went deep to left-center off Hector Santiago.

Wong's two-run shot off Santiago in the eighth made it 13-2. Martinez doubled home a run in the ninth.

GRAND HISTORY

Fowler's slam was his first since last August versus Kansas City. It also was the switch-hitter's first from the right side. Fowler connected for his first grand slam with Colorado in September 2012 off Mikolas, who then pitched for San Diego.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Cardinals: CF Tommy Pham (bruised left ankle) was scratched from the lineup and replaced by Yairo Munoz. Pham fouled a ball off his foot on Sunday in San Francisco. ... Molina returned after sitting out two games with a sore shoulder. He also was added to the NL All-Star roster as a replacement for Giants catcher Buster Posey, who will miss the game because of a nagging hip injury that requires an injection. ... RHP Luke Gregerson (right shoulder impingement) rejoined the team from a rehab stint at Triple-A Memphis, but had not yet been activated from the disabled list.

White Sox: OF Avisail Garcia was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain. Garcia, an All-Star in 2017, missed two months earlier this season with a more serious strain to the same muscle, but in a different location. GM Rick Hahn hopes Garcia will return after the All-Star break. The White Sox added outfielder Ryan LaMarre to take Garcia's place.

UP NEXT

Cardinals RHP Luke Weaver (5-7, 4.92 ERA) faces LHP Carlos Rodon (1-3, 4.29) on Wednesday in the finale of the two-game set. Weaver pitched two-hit ball over a career-high eight innings last Thursday in San Francisco and carried a perfect game into the sixth.

          Japanese Teen Pitcher Signs Minor League Contract With The Kansas City Royals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kaito Yuki signs with the Royals.

Kaito Yuki is making big moves in his baseball career, and he’s only 16 years old. Yuki currently lives in Japan and will be moving to the U.S. after signing a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals, according to Yahoo News. Yuki otherwise would have started high school, but it appears like he’s ready to grab hold of a good opportunity when he sees one.

“My goal is to do well in the majors. Not everybody is given that chance, so I want to do my best.”

Yuki also said that “I wanted to play in the United States as soon as possible, rather than playing high school ball at Koshien Stadium (in Japan’s iconic national championship).”

The teen was first spotted by recruiters when he was playing a youth tournament in the U.S. last year. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall, 170 pounds, and throws a right-hander’s fastball at 87 to 88 miles per hour.

          BWW TV: Inside The Public's FIRE IN DREAMLAND      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Public is currently tackling the dynamic and poignantly funny new play Fire in Dreamland. Get a look at the production below!

The complete cast of Fire in Dreamland features Kyle Beltran (Lance), Enver Gjokaj (Jaap Hooft), and Rebecca Naomi Jones (Kate).

Rinne Groff returns to The Public with Fire in Dreamland directed by Marissa Wolf, Associate Artistic Director and New Works Director at Kansas City Repertory. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, a disillusioned do-gooder named Kate, meets Jaap, a charismatic European making a film about the 1911 fire that burned Coney Island's Dreamland amusement park to ashes. Desperate for something to live for, Kate buys a ticket on the thrill ride of Jaap's passion. The only trick is to keep the roller coaster from running off the rails before it destroys them all. Breaking the boundaries of time and narrative, Fire in Dreamland is a vibrant new play that explores the astonishing things we create in the face of devastation. The work was originally commissioned by The Public Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

FIRE IN DREAMLAND features scenic and costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker, and original music and sound design by Brendan Aanes.

          Meet The NEA's 2019 Jazz Masters: Dorough, Ibrahim, Schneider And Crouch       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jazz Masters award, bestowed every year since 1982, is often characterized as the United States' highest honor reserved for jazz. This morning the NEA announced four new recipients of the prize: pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim, composer-arranger-bandleader Maria Schneider, critic and novelist Stanley Crouch, and singer-songwriter and pianist Bob Dorough.

Each award, which comes with a $25,000 prize, begins with a nomination process that's open the public, with the intention of recognizing "a broad range of men and women who have been significant to the field of jazz through vocal and instrumental performance, creative leadership, and education."

By design, it's a lifetime achievement honor for living artists — but in the case of Dorough, whose nomination was approved before his death in April, a rare posthumous distinction will be made. Dorough, who was 94 when he died, would have been the oldest Jazz Master inductee by about a decade.

Ibrahim — one of the most admired musicians ever to emerge from South Africa, originally under the name Dollar Brand — is 83. He remains active as a recording artist and touring concert attraction, typically either playing solo or with his longtime band, Ekaya. In recent years he has also revisited the music he made with The Jazz Epistles in the late 1950s, under apartheid. (NEA Jazz Masters are also required to be American citizens or permanent residents; since going into exile in the '60s, Ibrahim has lived for long stretches in the United States.)

Crouch, who is 72, has long been one of the most prominent and provocative voices in jazz criticism. A longtime friend and mentor of Wynton Marsalis, he was among the earliest consultants to Jazz at Lincoln Center. Along with acclaimed collections of essays, Crouch has published a novel (Don't the Moon Look Lonesome?) and a biography (Kansas City Lightning: The Rise and Times of Charlie Parker). He'll receive the A.B. Spellman NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship for Jazz Advocacy, named after a colleague (and occasional sparring partner).

Schneider, at 57, is by far the youngest inductee in this NEA Jazz Masters class, but she brings more than her share of credentials. Widely hailed as the preeminent large-ensemble composer of her generation, she's a perennial fixture in industry surveys like the DownBeat International Critics Poll and has won an armload of Grammy awards in both jazz and classical categories. Schneider is also no stranger to recognition from the National Endowment for the Arts, having won a grant from the organization in 1985, shortly after moving to New York.

According to custom, the new class of NEA Jazz Masters will be inducted in a tribute concert and ceremony at the Kennedy Center on Monday, April 15, 2019. The concert will be free and open to the public, and streamed online.

          Video: Hopkins' Paige Bueckers tosses alley-oop to Belibi for dunk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where there’s never a heat advisory. Let’s get to it: *Hopkins point guard Paige Bueckers was the Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year as a sophomore this past season and is one of the best players in the nation at her age. Francesca Belibi just finished her junior year in Colorado, where she’s already become famous for her in-game dunks (the first one coming when she was a sophomore). Together, they make quite a duo. And even if this was only in a casual practice setting, where Bueckers, Belibi and the rest of their Team USA squad is getting ready for the FIBA U17 World Cup later this month in Belarus, it is a sight to behold. The scene: Bueckers lobs it up; Belibi goes and gets it. A dunk happens, and their teammates go bonkers. The best part is that there’s video. Check it out: *The Twins had their five-game winning streak snapped in a 9-4 loss to the Royals, while Kansas City snapped a 10-game losing streak in the process. But Minnesota managed to remain 8.5 games behind Cleveland, on the fringes of maybe sort of trying to stay relevant in the AL Central, because the Indians lost in excruciating fashion. How’s this: After Trevor Bauer pitched eight scoreless innings and Cleveland took a 4-0 lead into the ninth inning at home against Cincinnati, the Reds rallied for SEVEN runs, all scored with two outs, in the final inning for a 7-4 win. Making matters worse for Cleveland: The pitcher who gave up the winning hit, Dan Otero, wasn’t even supposed to be in the game. Per ESPN.com: (Manager Terry) Francona said afterward there was a miscommunication. He requested “OP” — Oliver Perez — and it was understood as “OT,” Otero’s nickname, and Otero was told to warm up in the bullpen. When the pitching change was made, Francona realized something had gone wrong. “When I saw OT coming through the gate, it was not the guy I was expecting,” Francona told reporters. It was Cleveland’s fourth consecutive loss. *NBA Commissioner Adam Silver seems to have changed his tune about whether the Golden State Warriors and other “super teams” are bad for the NBA. At a news conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday in the midst of Summer League action, Silver had this to say: “I think the Warriors—within the framework of this deal—should be doing everything they can to increase their dominance. That’s what you want to see in a league. You want teams to compete in every way they can within the rules. I don’t necessarily think it’s per se bad that the Warriors are so dominant. As I’ve said before, we’re not trying to create some sort of forced parity. What we really focus on is parity of opportunity.” Here’s what he said two years ago after Kevin Durant joined the Warriors: “I don’t think it’s good for the league. … When you aggregate a group of great players, they have a better chance of winning than many other teams. … I do not think that’s ideal from a league standpoint.” Therein lies both sides of the argument, I suppose. You can’t fault Silver for evolving his line of thinking — in part, perhaps, since the NBA seems to be as popular as ever even though only a small handful of teams enter every season with a realistic chance to win a title as opposed to more parity-driven leagues like the NHL and NFL.

-- Everything would need to go right for the Green Bay Packers to have a perfect record by January of next year, but James Jones has a feeling -- unlike Vince Lombardi -- that it's attainable. The former Packers wide receiver, along with Maurice Jones-Drew, predicted the Packers' 2018 record in an NFL Total Access segment on Tuesday. Could the @packers run the table? @MJD and @89JonesNTAF predict their record  : @NFLTotalAccess pic.twitter.com/FHcrl0yytI — NFL Network (@nflnetwork) July 11, 2018 "The man is back," Jones said, citing the return of Aaron Rodgers as the primary reason behind the Packers' ascension this coming season. Jones, drafted by the Packers in the third round of the 2007 draft, played with both the likes of Brett Favre and Rodgers during an eight-year career in Green Bay. 315 of his 360 regular-season receptions with the Packers came on throws from Rodgers. There may be an obvious sense of bias behind Jones' predictions, but he does have some experience stringing together a copious amount of wins with Rodgers at the helm. "One time when I played with the Green Bay Packers with 12 under the center, we started off 14-0," Jones said. "They start off right here. Got some new little weapons over there; Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis, found out they got a running game when [Aaron] Rodgers was hurt. Still got that now." The Packers, however, started their 2011 campaign 13-0 before losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in week 15. They had pieced together 19 consecutive wins -- including playoffs -- dating back to the previous season that culminated with a Super Bowl XLV victory. Jones-Drew's spin-around with the record predictions had the Packers finishing 12-3-1 with a lone tie with the New England Patriots.  The Packers loaded up on one of their deficient positions in the draft, selecting Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander with their No. 18 overall selection and Iowa's Josh Jackson at No. 45 -- their first back-to-back pair of cornerbacks since Damarious Randall (No. 30) and Quinten Rollins (No. 62) in 2015. It was the second draft in a row, though, that the Packers landed back-to-back defensive backs to begin their draft. Last year, they selected Washington cornerback Kevin King (No. 33) and North Carolina State. safety Josh Jones (No. 61), both of which are expected to be major contributors in the secondary in 2018. They also drafted three receivers in April to help neutralize the void left behind by losing Jordy Nelson in free agency: Missouri's J'Mon Moore (No. 133), South Florida's Marquez Valdes-Scantling (No. 174) and Notre Dame's Equanimeous St. Brown (No. 207). Some aid from a potent rookie class coincided with second-year jumps from last year's class should definitely help the Packers drastically improve from their 2017 record, but a significant factor in any improvement is going to ride on Rodgers' arm and through the offense -- even with new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. The Packers will need to pull out all the stops to help fulfill Jones' prediction, but realistically, chasing such perfection should help them catch excellence.

          Off The Baggy - The Flip Side of Selling      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Right now, the Minnesota Twins own a 1.7% probability when it comes to making the postseason per Fangraphs. I recently wrote about how Minnesota can utilize their remaining schedule if and when they decide to sell off. Should the losing continue, things become very clear for this squad. What makes things interesting however, is the slate that lies ahead.

So far, the Twins have found themselves playing a significant amount of games outside of the AL Central. While divisional matchups are all bound to get in eventually, it's of note for Minnesota given the poor quality of competition. Obviously the Cleveland Indians have the same opportunity to beat bad teams, but the Twins schedule sets up favorably. In September, 17 of the 28 games come against the White Sox, Royals and Tigers. In August, the club plays more than their fair share of games against Cleveland, as well as Kansas City.

What that means for Paul Molitor's squad is somewhat of an unknown at this point. Having recently faced both the White Sox and Royals, Minnesota is enjoying a nice five game winning streak. On the year, the Twins are just 12-10 against the three "poor" teams in the division, while owning a 6-3 record against Cleveland.

Beating bad teams, or the ones that you should beat, is what good teams make a habit of. Sitting eight games below .500 at the moment, Minnesota can't say they've capitalized on opportunities thus far. What makes things somewhat interesting, is that there's plenty of opportunity ahead.

I don't know that I believe this club can turn it around. On paper coming into the year, this should've been a very good team. The pitching has been there, but seeing very little from players like Dozier, Morrison, Sano, Buxton, and Kepler has crippled the offense. Should they all turn it around, we're talking about a much different outlook down the stretch. The Indians have their warts, and a clicking Twins team is more than capable of holding serve.
Derek Falvey and Thad Levine are stuck in the position of deciding whether or not they're willing to bet on their expected producers to turn things around. They've got roughly two more weeks to evaluate the progress, and while they could end up being sellers, don't really have a big trade chip of note.

Given what we've seen thus far, it's hard to bet on a group of five or six guys all turning things around and competing at a high level. If half of those players become assets however, we could be in for a bit of interesting baseball slightly longer than anticipated. The unfortunate flip side to this however, is that the middle ground seems to be where this is all trending, and that's hardly an enviable place to be. Not bad enough to grab a top third draft pick, but not good enough to make the playoffs, the success would then need to be measured on what you learned or the evaluation that took place.

While not dead, the Twins are on life support. They have a few key contributors that could help them to pull through, and if that takes place in even the slightest fashion, the opponents that wait down the road may be of assistance as well.

          Video: Hopkins' Paige Bueckers tosses alley-oop to Belibi for dunk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where there’s never a heat advisory. Let’s get to it: *Hopkins point guard Paige Bueckers was the Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year as a sophomore this past season and is one of the best players in the nation at her age. Francesca Belibi just finished her junior year in Colorado, where she’s already become famous for her in-game dunks (the first one coming when she was a sophomore). Together, they make quite a duo. And even if this was only in a casual practice setting, where Bueckers, Belibi and the rest of their Team USA squad is getting ready for the FIBA U17 World Cup later this month in Belarus, it is a sight to behold. The scene: Bueckers lobs it up; Belibi goes and gets it. A dunk happens, and their teammates go bonkers. The best part is that there’s video. Check it out: *The Twins had their five-game winning streak snapped in a 9-4 loss to the Royals, while Kansas City snapped a 10-game losing streak in the process. But Minnesota managed to remain 8.5 games behind Cleveland, on the fringes of maybe sort of trying to stay relevant in the AL Central, because the Indians lost in excruciating fashion. How’s this: After Trevor Bauer pitched eight scoreless innings and Cleveland took a 4-0 lead into the ninth inning at home against Cincinnati, the Reds rallied for SEVEN runs, all scored with two outs, in the final inning for a 7-4 win. Making matters worse for Cleveland: The pitcher who gave up the winning hit, Dan Otero, wasn’t even supposed to be in the game. Per ESPN.com: (Manager Terry) Francona said afterward there was a miscommunication. He requested “OP” — Oliver Perez — and it was understood as “OT,” Otero’s nickname, and Otero was told to warm up in the bullpen. When the pitching change was made, Francona realized something had gone wrong. “When I saw OT coming through the gate, it was not the guy I was expecting,” Francona told reporters. It was Cleveland’s fourth consecutive loss. *NBA Commissioner Adam Silver seems to have changed his tune about whether the Golden State Warriors and other “super teams” are bad for the NBA. At a news conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday in the midst of Summer League action, Silver had this to say: “I think the Warriors—within the framework of this deal—should be doing everything they can to increase their dominance. That’s what you want to see in a league. You want teams to compete in every way they can within the rules. I don’t necessarily think it’s per se bad that the Warriors are so dominant. As I’ve said before, we’re not trying to create some sort of forced parity. What we really focus on is parity of opportunity.” Here’s what he said two years ago after Kevin Durant joined the Warriors: “I don’t think it’s good for the league. … When you aggregate a group of great players, they have a better chance of winning than many other teams. … I do not think that’s ideal from a league standpoint.” Therein lies both sides of the argument, I suppose. You can’t fault Silver for evolving his line of thinking — in part, perhaps, since the NBA seems to be as popular as ever even though only a small handful of teams enter every season with a realistic chance to win a title as opposed to more parity-driven leagues like the NHL and NFL.

          Pence's Midwestern damage control tour on Trump's trade disaster targeted at ... GOP donors      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It's a big frickin' mess but someone has to clean up Donald Trump's trade meltdown in the Midwest and Mike Pence is just the man for the job. Good luck, Mikey! He'll need it as he swings through Kansas City, Cedar Rapids, and Chicago where Politico reports he is "quietly" setting up one-on-ones with major GOP donors, many of whom aren't actually feeling the pain real farmers are. 

“The cost and impact is being felt by farmers for several weeks now. It’s real. It’s a fact. It’s happening,” said Kirk Leeds, Iowa Soybean Association CEO. [...]

Pence is expected to make his pitch from a position of strength, highlighting President Donald Trump’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh for the next Supreme Court justice and the tax cuts that have benefited top-tier brackets and large-scale employers, a Republican operative with knowledge of the meetings told POLITICO. 

Forget about the guys and gals who just lost a harvest's worth of income and may face losing their entire livelihoods. Instead, focus on the upper-crust donors who are cashing in on the stock market, the GOP tax giveaway to the mega-wealthy and are likely willing to trade the livelihoods of other Americans for the benefit of a reliably conservative Supreme Court justice. 

In the meantime, GOP Rep. Rodney Davis in IL-13 won't say whether he voted for Trump and recently admitted Trump's trade war is “devastating to our agricultural sector.”  

In Tennessee, the AP is reporting on how Trump's trade war is "changing minds" in the Senate battleground state as the GOP candidate, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, goes from full-throated support of everything Trump to calling the trade war a "grave concern."

And in South Carolina, the BMW plant that's a major driver of the regional economy said Wednesday it would build more of its SUVs overseas due to Trump's trade war.

Not all midwestern, but those are just several very recent examples of stories centering on the tariff impact. And then there's Pence, focusing on the 1 percent instead of the folks losing jobs and livelihoods—counting on the GOP war chest to fuel an ad campaign that brainwashes Republican voters into thinking everything is just peachy.

Pence isn’t super concerned about Bret Davis, the Ohio farmer and director of the American Soybean Association who observes, “Since the announcement of the tariffs: we’ve lost 20 percent of our income in soybeans, that’s nationally.”

          Kansas City Percussionist's New Musical Adventures Go Far Beyond Drum Safari      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Brandon Draper will not be getting a summer vacation this year. Draper is a percussion and music business instructor at the University of Kansas, and this month, for starters, he's touring Italy and France with KU's top jazz ensemble . When he’s not in Europe, he’s scheduled to play almost 100 dates across the United States with his wife and daughter in Drum Safari , an interactive percussion performance group for children. Draper is a protégé of the late Kansas City children's entertainer Bongo Barry (Bernstein), so he and his family bring hundreds of percussion instruments to libraries, day camps and other children's events. After a little guidance, kids get a chance to just cut loose and play. Given that schedule, it’s not surprising that Draper needs a way to relax — or that he's sharing that with audiences, too. He's just released " Meditation Music, Vol. 1 ," a yoga-class-length musical meditation. “I went into the studio and recorded 47-minutes non-stop, meditating with my

Amy Lee has confirmed that EVANESCENCE will soon begin work on the follow-up to 2011's self-titled effort. "That's the plan," she told Meltdown of Detroit, Michigan's WRIF 101.1 FM radio station. "The plan is for us to work on a new album next. We don't have a timeline going on right now — we've been focused on [the 'Synthesis'] tour and this whole crazy massive thing we've been doing. But, yeah, that's totally the plan. You will hear from us." Asked if she has been collecting ideas for new EVANESCENCE songs since the release of the band's last record, she said: "Yeah, always. I've got a nice little pile that's been building up over the years." EVANESCENCE's latest release was 2017's "Synthesis", which was a reimagining of some of the band's best-loved songs — as well as a couple of new ones. In support of "Synthesis", EVANESCENCELee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist/background vocalist Jen Majura — is currently in the midst of an extensive "Synthesis Live" tour of North America. Also on the bill is Lindsey Stirling, the violinist, dancer and viral video star who appears on the "Synthesis" track "Hi-Lo". The co-headlining trek, produced by Live Nation, kicked off July 6 in Kansas City, Missouri at the Starlight Theatre and will wrap September 8 in Ridgefield, Washington at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater.

U.K. gothic doom-death pioneers PARADISE LOST will return to North America after a six-year absence for a headlining tour in support of their latest album, "Medusa". Joining them are Iceland's premiere psychedelic post-metal export SÓLSTAFIR, as well as THE ATLAS MOTH. Commented PARADISE LOST vocalist Nick Holmes: "The last time we toured in the USA was in 2012 on the 'The Epic Kings And Idols' tour with Devin Townsend. Six years, and a couple of albums later, we are really pleased to announce that we will finally be heading back to the States for our very own coast-to-coast headline tour. It's our 30th-anniversary tour, and we will be playing a selection of our best songs from over the years. Looking forward to seeing you all there!" Tickets go on sale everywhere Friday, July 13 at 10 a.m. local time.

The artwork was created by Branca Studio and shows the infamous Gorgone Medusa from Greek mythology, carrying venomous snakes as hair and turning anyone into stone who would dare to look into her eyes. PARADISE LOST guitarist Greg Mackintosh told the Moshpit Backstage podcast that "Medusa" is "probably" the band's "heaviest album to date, partly because of the way the songs are written. Also, partly, because of the production," he said. "The production is very kind a bit of a throwback production in a way, and also very organic. It's basically the mics recording everything, no editing, no nothing. It's very much a doom metal album." He continued: "We had a very clear idea of what we're doing before we even started writing this album, which we don't normally have. Normally, we start writing and see what happens. But with this record, we had a very clear idea that we wanted to do a doom metal album. And, it just worked that way. The first song on the album is eight and a half minutes long and our label [Nuclear Blast], when we told them we wanted to put it first, they were a little apprehensive because it throws people into the deep end. It's not as immediate as maybe as some of the previous albums, but I think it's a grower. That's the whole point to me. But, yeah, it's very heavy, very doom metal. It can be quite eclectic in parts and there's a range of vocal styles and a range of different musical styles on there." Greg also commented on PARADISE LOST's stylistic changes, saying: "I think it's a natural process. If we did, not every record the same, but say we did five records in a row and they were all very similar, it would be like working on a production line for me. It would feel like, just very pedestrian. Personally, I like to be challenged, but also have something fresh. "I think the reason we're still going after all this time is when we approach a record, we approach it as if we're a brand-new band and this is our first record and we have no history and no baggage. That really affects your viewpoint then, on everything. It can really change your writing style. I think that's the key to me, just thinking, 'What am I one-hundred percent into at this moment in time? Let's just go for that.' It can change year in, year out, you don't know. The music you got into when you're fifteen, sixteen, always stays with you at some degree, always keeps coming back, but you can still diversify from that and keep it all fresh for yourself."
          Sam Beal and Adonis Alexander: 5 reasons the Browns should bid on them today      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Browns should bid on the two defensive backs in the supplemental draft today. Here are 5 reasons why.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Browns have a chance to land two good defensive backs today in the supplemental draft in Sam Beal and Adonis Alexander, and they should bid fairly high on both today beginning at 1 p.m.

It's an opportunity to land a pair of potential starting DBs at bargain prices, and add to the pile in the secondary.

In an effort to rebound from 0-16, GM John Dorsey has aggressively overhauled the roster, paying special attention to the beleaguered secondary which gave up 28 touchdown passes last year for 26th in the league.

The Browns have two extra draft picks in the 2019 draft for a total of nine, and they can afford to spend two of them on Beal, the Western Michigan cornerback, and Alexander, the Virginia Tech cornerback who might play safety in the NFL. They have an extra third-round pick from the Danny Shelton trade to New England, and an extra seventh-round pick from the Cody Kessler trade to Jacksonville, although that one can't be used in this draft because it's conditional.

But the Browns have a good chance to land both players by virtue of their draft status. Teams are divided into three categories (six wins or fewer, more than six wins but no playoffs and playoff teams). They're then placed in a lottery to determine selection order, with the worst teams having the best chance to pick high.

According to Rob Rang of NFLdraftscout.com, the Browns will pick fourth in the draft behind the Raiders, Jets and Giants. The Broncos round out the top five.

It will likely take at least one of the third-rounders to land Beal, and possibly their fourth-rounder to land Alexander, but it's worth the gamble in both cases. Here are five reasons why.

1. Sam Beal has starting potential

Beal (6-1, 196, 4.46) can develop into a solid starter in the minds of most draft experts. A two-year starter at Western Michigan, Beal has the size, speed and athletic ability to develop into a quality pro DB. Dorsey attended Beal's pro day and was very locked in.

"With Sam Beal, you're intrigued by the athleticism and the size combination,'' Rang told cleveland.com. "There's just not many corners that are a legitimate six-foot that can just change directions and accelerate as fluidly as he does.

"At the same time, he's still a little bit raw as a football player. He's not a great run enforcer and he doesn't have the like the interceptions and things of that nature that you'd love to have at that level of competition but again, but the athleticism is so appealing that I think a third-round pick is fair.''

The Browns have one definite starter in first-round pick Denzel Ward, but are still auditioning candidates for their second spot. If Beal isn't ready this year, he could work his way up to that.

Why the Browns might land Beal in the supplemental draft

2. Dorsey loves defensive backs

A former linebacker for the Packers, Dorsey understands the value of good defensive backs in today's pass-oriented game. He drafted Ward and Simeon Thomas, traded for Damarious Randall, and signed free agents T.J. Carrie, E.J. Gaines and Terrance Mitchell.

This is a chance for him to add potential starters -- probably for down the road. It's a unique opportunity to add talent, and Dorsey has already been aggressive in this area. It's just a matter of how high he's willing to go. Some team desperate for a starting corner might even bid a second-rounder for Beal, who had all 32 teams at his workout.

3. Alexander tested clean this week

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, teams were notified this week that Alexander, who was suspended two games last year for marijuana use and had a marijuana arrest in 2016, tested clean on Monday.

It's just one more reason for the Browns to toss their hat in the ring for the rangy defensive back, who will likely play safety in the NFL. Alexander, who like Beal was ruled academically ineligible for 2018, told Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports that he hasn't failed a drug test in nine months.

"I'll definitely find a veteran player that does everything right and model myself as a person after him," Alexander told Paylor. "That will be the first thing I do, along with being in the playbook. It's going to be football, football, football. I'll always be in the film room."

Dorsey has demonstrated that he believes in second chances, drafting receiver Antonio Callaway this year and Kansas City's Tyreek Hill when he was in Kansas City. He's also welcomed Josh Gordon with open arms. He's not scared off by a failed drug test or ineligibility. A former player, he understands them.

4. Their safety spot is still in flux

The Browns are still identifying their starting safeties for 2018. Randall, the former Packers corner, seems to have a lock on the free safety job, but strong safety is still up for grabs between Jabrill Peppers and Derrick Kindred.

Besides, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams loves flexibility in his defenders, requiring them to play at least two positions. Randall can obviously play safety and corner, as can Briean Boddy-Calhoun and others. Alexander would join that mix, and in sub-defenses, the five or six best DBs will be on the field.

5. The Browns have had good luck in the supplemental draft

The Browns acquired quarterback Bernie Kosar in the first round of the supplemental draft in 1985, and Josh Gordon in the second round in 2012, and both went on to make the Pro Bowl.

It's unusual to have this many draftable players in the supplemental draft. The Browns are trying to win as fast as possible, and there are at least two players in this draft who can help.

Entre los astros que iluminarán el cielo de Washington DC, el 17 de este mes, estarán siete venezolanos. Algunos llegaron por la elección popular y otro por el mérito que les dieron sus compañeros; de cualquier forma, serán parte del Juego de Estrellas de las Grandes Ligas.

Siete venezolanos estarán en el Juego de las Estrellas de la MLB

José Altuve, camarero de los Astros de Houston, vivirá su sexto clásico gracias a ser el más votado por los fanáticos. “Es divertido”, le dijo el tres veces campeón de bateo de la Liga Americana a la Associated Press. “Estás jugando, pero miras a tu alrededor porque lo estás haciendo con todos esos grandes nombres”.

En el equipo del nuevo circuito, Altuve tendrá como compañeros al receptor Wilson Ramos (quien también será titular, por haber sido escogido por la mayoría) y al novato Gleyber Torres, de los Yanquis de Nueva York, que se ganó el honor por las sugerencias de los peloteros. De acuerdo con el portal ElEmergente.com, del periodista Ignacio Serrano, será la segunda vez que un bisoño criollo estará entre estrellas; el primero fue Alex González en 1999.

El receptor Salvador Pérez, de los Reales de Kansas City, también integrará el roster de la Americana. Al igual que Altuve, vivirá su sexta edición del tradicional compromiso que parte la campaña en dos.

En la Liga Nacional el único venezolano que llegó por los votos populares, y que será parte del lineup titular, será Willson Contreras, careta de los Cachorros de Chicago. En la reserva estará el antesalista Eugenio Suárez, de los Rojos de Cincinnati, y en el bullpen el zurdo Felipe Vázquez, de los Piratas de Pittsburgh. Para el trío será la primera vez en un clásico.

Hay posibilidades de que se completen las ocho estrellas venezolanas en la bandera del Juego de Estrellas. El inicialista Jesús Aguilar, de los Cerveceros de Milwaukee, es parte del voto final que se conocerá este jueves; compite con Brandon Belt (Gigantes), Matt Carpenter (Cardenales), Max Muncy (Dodgers) y Trea Turner (Nacionales).

          Video: Hopkins' Paige Bueckers tosses alley-oop to Belibi for dunk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where there’s never a heat advisory. Let’s get to it: *Hopkins point guard Paige Bueckers was the Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year as a sophomore this past season and is one of the best players in the nation at her age. Francesca Belibi just finished her junior year in Colorado, where she’s already become famous for her in-game dunks (the first one coming when she was a sophomore). Together, they make quite a duo. And even if this was only in a casual practice setting, where Bueckers, Belibi and the rest of their Team USA squad is getting ready for the FIBA U17 World Cup later this month in Belarus, it is a sight to behold. The scene: Bueckers lobs it up; Belibi goes and gets it. A dunk happens, and their teammates go bonkers. The best part is that there’s video. Check it out: *The Twins had their five-game winning streak snapped in a 9-4 loss to the Royals, while Kansas City snapped a 10-game losing streak in the process. But Minnesota managed to remain 8.5 games behind Cleveland, on the fringes of maybe sort of trying to stay relevant in the AL Central, because the Indians lost in excruciating fashion. How’s this: After Trevor Bauer pitched eight scoreless innings and Cleveland took a 4-0 lead into the ninth inning at home against Cincinnati, the Reds rallied for SEVEN runs, all scored with two outs, in the final inning for a 7-4 win. Making matters worse for Cleveland: The pitcher who gave up the winning hit, Dan Otero, wasn’t even supposed to be in the game. Per ESPN.com: (Manager Terry) Francona said afterward there was a miscommunication. He requested “OP” — Oliver Perez — and it was understood as “OT,” Otero’s nickname, and Otero was told to warm up in the bullpen. When the pitching change was made, Francona realized something had gone wrong. “When I saw OT coming through the gate, it was not the guy I was expecting,” Francona told reporters. It was Cleveland’s fourth consecutive loss. *NBA Commissioner Adam Silver seems to have changed his tune about whether the Golden State Warriors and other “super teams” are bad for the NBA. At a news conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday in the midst of Summer League action, Silver had this to say: “I think the Warriors—within the framework of this deal—should be doing everything they can to increase their dominance. That’s what you want to see in a league. You want teams to compete in every way they can within the rules. I don’t necessarily think it’s per se bad that the Warriors are so dominant. As I’ve said before, we’re not trying to create some sort of forced parity. What we really focus on is parity of opportunity.” Here’s what he said two years ago after Kevin Durant joined the Warriors: “I don’t think it’s good for the league. … When you aggregate a group of great players, they have a better chance of winning than many other teams. … I do not think that’s ideal from a league standpoint.” Therein lies both sides of the argument, I suppose. You can’t fault Silver for evolving his line of thinking — in part, perhaps, since the NBA seems to be as popular as ever even though only a small handful of teams enter every season with a realistic chance to win a title as opposed to more parity-driven leagues like the NHL and NFL.

          Time is now for Red Sox David Price to get locked in       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

So much for that hundo I put on David Price to win the 2018 AL Cy Young award.



In fairness, he was +2500 before the season began. And considering he was lights out in the previous postseason — as a reliever, of course — combined with the possible incentive of opting out of his current deal with the Red Sox this winter, it didn’t seem like such a crazy bet.



Fast forward to mid-July, and Price is 9-6 with a 4.44 ERA in 18 starts. After a month of June in which he went 4-1 with a 2.90 ERA, Price has had two awful outings to begin the month of July. He’ll try to snap out of that funk when he makes his third start of the month on Thursday night at Fenway against the Toronto Blue Jays.



And I have a little advice for Price, for after the game, regardless of the outcome: Don’t say anything stupid.



It’s been proven that this is not an easy accomplishment for Price, who not too long ago mocked the media about possibly not being able to play against the Yankees on July 1. He played. He just sucked, allowing eight earned runs in three-and-a-third innings, which included five home runs. Ouch.



He followed that up with another stinker in Kansas City last weekend. And when you have a target on your back in this town, it makes four earned runs against the Royals feel like 14. 



Price has put that target on himself. Not just because of some bad performances on the mound as a $31 million-per-year pitcher, but also because of his shaky relationship with the media. “Shaky” might be generous. It feels like he hates the Boston media. And you don’t have to live here long to know that’s a battle the player will never win, unfortunately. 



Price will never have the last word. But he can certainly have the last laugh. That’s why he should listen to my advice.



No more FortNite jokes. No more sarcasm. No more childish rants.



Do me a favor, David. Call Bill Belichick. Ask him how you should handle your media sessions. And for the next three months, adopt The Patriot Way.



Only talk to the media after your starts. Answer every question as generic as possible. Don’t add any fuel to the fire. Because the only way you can get the last laugh is by winning a championship. And for the Red Sox to do that, they’re going to need you to be a key contributor from here on out.



I’m not telling Price to stop playing video games. I’m not even asking him to be necessarily friendly with reporters. I’m just telling him that it’s time to cut the crap. It’s time to get locked in.



Getting all pissy with the media is a bad look for anybody. It’s become an even worse look for Price. And when he does so, he puts even more pressure on himself, because the critics begin to beg for him to fail. And when he does, that target becomes even bigger.



At the end of the day, all anybody really wants out of Price is for him to dominate the way he’s being paid to dominate. Maybe he doesn’t have that type of dominant stuff anymore. Maybe he does. But my point is, there’s only one way to find out. 



That should be all we’re talking about with Price; his results. That should be all he’s thinking about. 



Price will never get the last word. But he can certainly get the last laugh. The only place he can do that, though, is on the mound.

A county IT leader may encounter any number of existential crises: Budget cuts shred the IT workforce. Wildfires literally burn half the county to the ground. A new business process dumps 80,000 new users on the system. These are the kinds of things that can break an IT shop.

The winners of the 16th Annual Digital Counties Survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government,* have tackled these and a range of other seemingly mortal threats, and come out shining. They’ve learned to cope with the unexpected and seen their thoughtful investments bear fruit in the face of unexpected challenges.

When the going gets rough, this is how IT gets going.

Nevada County, Calif., 1st Place, up to 150,000 Population Category

In Nevada County, headcount is down 26 percent from pre-recession levels, and CIO Steve Monaghan is learning to do more with less. 

That means doing the big jobs first: Cybersecurity is critical and he’s attacked that. It also means leveraging IT assets. Investments in cloud have helped him to make the most of sparse resources. Mostly, though, Monaghan’s task as an IT leader has been to impart a sense of ownership to all involved in supporting the county’s technology needs. 

“We spend a lot of time building culture around taking an entrepreneurial approach,” he said. “We’ve done workshops, we have done a whole service-management initiative aimed at defining everything we offer, every piece of equipment we manage, so that everything has an owner within IT. Everybody knows who is responsible for what, and we ask people to be entrepreneurs over their own services. We want them to run with the ball.” 

Take for instance the network analyst in charge of the VMware farm. “His documentation is immaculate. He has a very tightly run ship. We know what we have, and as a result the service level is very high. We’ve never had an outage on that virtual farm, because he has really taken it to heart that those are his,” Monaghan said. 

Same goes for the analyst overseeing the replacement of the first-generation VPN platform. “He taps into other members to support that, but ultimately he owns that. There’s a sense of ownership that drives the project forward, which in turn leads to an enhanced, more reliable product for the customer,” Monaghan said.

How can a government IT leader spark that entrepreneurial spirit? Much of it comes down to setting expectations. “In the last six months we had a Ph.D. in organizational development come in for multiple sessions to refresh our Values and Expectations document, to do a workshop geared around what it means to take ownership,” he said. “As IT leaders, we have to build these cultural processes, something bigger than any one project. That’s the secret sauce of delivering excellent IT services.”

Arlington County, Va., 1st Place, 150,000-249,999 Population Category

CIO Jack Belcher doesn’t just want to be a back-end provider. He says his department’s job is to serve the public good, a mission he pursues with uncommon vigor. 

“If you make sure the network is running, that the servers are secure — well, that’s what you are expected to do,” he said. “Taking it to the next step is what distinguishes a CIO from an IT director. That next step is all about understanding your community.” 

It isn’t easy to know what the public wants or needs, or how IT can best facilitate. To meet the challenge, Belcher has gone right to the source, organizing a series of public gatherings around the theme of “Defining Arlington’s Digital Destiny.” 

“The idea is to bring together leaders from education, from the community, from government, to think about what might be possible,” Belcher said. He’s hosted events on the future of education, the nature of work, and what it means to be an intelligent community. 

These public gatherings have directly informed the IT agenda. Take for example the recently completed deployment of a countywide fiber-optic network. “These discussions transformed our vision of what to do with that asset,” he said. 

Sure, the fiber could spur development and drive economic growth — they knew that going in. But with community input, the vision evolved. “We saw that we could provide an immense value in the form of digital equity, providing people in affordable housing with free broadband access. That helps break the bonds of poverty,” Belcher said. “It took these discussions to bring that idea to the surface and make it possible.”

Community input likewise helped spur development of a mobile project-tracker app to help keep residents informed about civic undertakings. “We want to make that data available in a form where residents can easily find out what we are doing. How are we spending our money? We want to leverage the technology to provide that level of transparency.”

When the CIO seeks citizen input, there’s risk involved. What if they ask for something extravagant? What if they put something entirely unexpected on the table? Belcher said a strong relationship with county leadership gave him the confidence to open that door. “You can’t do this unless your elected officials have the confidence that you are doing the right thing. There has to be a level of mutual trust,” he said.

Dutchess County, N.Y., 1st Place. 250,000-499,999 Population Category

It’s not just that budgets are stagnant. It’s that, in a time of stagnant budgets, everybody still wants more. Towns want upgraded websites. Cops want cutting-edge technologies. For Glenn Marchi, commissioner of the Dutchess County Office of Central and Information Services, the challenge is to deliver on all that, without breaking the bank. 

“Shared services are key to doing that,” he said. 

This year Marchi’s team worked with public safety officials to bring online emergency 911 service, computer-aided dispatch, and new records managements systems for law enforcement and corrections. The initiative saved the police $500,000 by leveraging county IT resources, including existing hardware and multi-jurisdictional software licenses. 

Marchi has taken the same approach in beefing up the websites of half a dozen towns, police departments and fire districts. His IT professionals will design a site and host it on shared infrastructure. By leveraging these resources across multiple uses, “we can design to exactly their specifications, and we can do it at a lower cost than an outside vendor,” he said.

Towns are free to use outside vendors, and Marchi says isn’t looking to compete with local private-sector IT providers. But he adds that in many cases, the county’s shared-service approach will prove the logical economic choice. 

IT leaders looking to follow this model would do well to reach out actively to civic leaders. The Dutchess County executive hosts an annual Municipal Innovation Summit to ensure mayors and town council members know what is available to them. 

“Our county executive leads that discussion, and anytime an IT solution pops up, my job is to share how that technology can enable a business solution or solve a business problem. I’m there as the CIO for the county to share how technology can be employed to achieve our specific strategic goals,” Marchi said. 

Without such gatherings, it can be hard for a shared services initiative to pick up steam. “We have had seven newly elected town supervisors and mayors in the past year. They have no idea these services are even available,” he said. “It’s our job to tell that story.”

Sonoma County, Calif., 1st Place, 500,000-999,999 Population Category

When wildfires swept through Sonoma County, Calif. in the fall of 2017, Director of Information Systems John Hartwig found the IT landscape as radically transformed as the rolling hills, now scorched and scarred.

“The wildfires put a lot of things on hold. Everybody had to step back and take a new look at the situation,” he said. Geospatial systems suddenly were front and center, along with document management capabilities. Website volume blew up exponentially.

“GIS, for example, had a huge responsibility in things like tracking the fire, tracking the road closures. All that had a spatial component to it,” he said. “The volume on the websites went up at least three times from everybody trying to seek information and find resources. With document management, suddenly everybody was processing requests that would be essential to us filing for federal aid. That means we needed a lot of forms and a lot of document-capturing tools to make sure our record keeping was clean, consistent and available for future reference.”

The key to success: an early investment in virtualization. 

“We had made an advance move early on to virtual machines, where we were able to shift resources on the fly — storage, memory and processing capacity — to the applications that were most urgent,” Hartwig said. 

The county had begun roughly three years ago to virtualize its server environment: An original inventory of more than 700 servers is now about 90 percent virtualized. That infrastructure delivered the flexibility and agility needed to spin up IT capacity and balance workloads in the face of the new, unexpected demands. 

“It put us in a very good position to add to or share resources. If we have 50 applications that are critical to the response, it’s nice to be able to slide resources over to those applications,” Hartwig said. “I don’t think we could have had all these services up and running if we were still on dedicated equipment.”

Montgomery County, Md., 1st Place, 1,000,000 or More Population Category

In Montgomery County, Md., the county runs the booze business. Last year that became IT’s problem, and it triggered a renewed focus on cybersecurity.

“The liquor system needed automated support for warehousing, distribution and point of sale. So it was decided that we would incorporate that into our relatively new Oracle ERP system,” said CIO Sonny Segal. That meant a sudden leap in the user base. “We are up to almost 100,000 external identities in addition to the 20,000 county identities.”

Segal already had a watchful eye on cyberissues, but with the massive influx of non-county users on the system, security became the focus of renewed attention. The IT team put new mechanisms in place to guard against spam and phishing attacks. They also tightened end-point management, effectively cutting enterprise vulnerabilities in half.

“We have taken a very aggressive stance on eliminating endpoint vulnerabilities through continual scanning and remediation,” Segal said. “We are not shy about taking end points offline and pursuing replacement and reimaging on a very aggressive schedule. Those things have paid off in the form of greatly reduced risk.”

Segal upped the security game by implementing tighter controls around IT devices, ensuring that all devices that touch county systems are registered for IT security oversight. He also uses dashboards and other reporting mechanisms to hold individuals and departments more publicly liable for their role in supporting the cybereffort.

“We have implemented risk-based dashboards that include the number of people who didn’t take cybertraining, the number of security instances that can be assigned to specific business units,” he said. “That all connects to our dedication to managing by measurement. Our chief administrative officer has each of the department heads accountable in public sessions for measurements in their business areas. Now security is one of those measured scorecards, and as result we have seen significant improvements in risk reduction.”

Click points on the map above to learn more about each winner. Red indicates 1st place winners, yellow indicates 2nd place winners, green indicates 3rd place winners, and blue indicates winners that placed 4th through 10th.

1st Nevada County, Calif.

One of 10 Sierra Nevada agencies that were ground zero to the state’s formative Gold Rush, Nevada County, Calif., built on IT accomplishments to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the smallest population category for the second time in three years. Guided by a supportive Board of Supervisors that has set clear technology investment policy, a strategic plan focused on service and an enterprise technology reserve fund, the county of nearly 100,000 has expanded and refreshed online and tech offerings.

County supervisors prioritized innovation in their 2018 value statements, forming an innovation team led by the chief information officer. The county also held a Citizen’s Academy to educate residents on their government. It launched a new regional law enforcement activity map last month, and has created a new public communications position aimed at identifying ways to improve information pushed out to the public through social media and the Internet. The agency is in early stages on an enterprise-level contract management system and has implemented a new in-vehicle video system that fosters collaboration between its district attorney and sheriff’s office.

Nevada County's CivicPlus-powered public website went live in August 2017 with responsive design that eliminated the need for a separate mobile site. The MyNeighborhood app on the website offers parcel, land and property data with new layers documenting marijuana ordinance and roadway information; and the county’s Open Data Portal offers residents a better way to search 18 layers of GIS data. AskNevadaCounty, another app accessible through the website, uses Accela’s customer relationship management (CRM) system to sort questions in eight categories, submit service requests and get answers from six city departments. Plus, new kiosks facilitate residents’ access to probation, sheriff’s and building departments, enabling functions including probationer self-service and building plan submission.

2nd Albemarle County, Va.

Although it slipped from first to second place this year, Albemarle County, Va., (population 108,000) continues its success in transparency and efficiency for citizens. The county uses GIS-enabled apps to let the public view open building permits and important county records like building applications and parcel activity. Residents are also encouraged to give feedback on the county budget and stay up to date with e-newsletters, email and community meetings. The county Board of Supervisors authorized the establishment of a broadband authority to meet the area's growing Internet needs, and the authority has gotten a $430,000 grant to expand broadband and improve wireless coverage for first responders in rural Albemarle.

Albemarle considers cybersecurity an important concern. The county partners with the University of Virginia and the city of Charlottesville to discuss cybersecurity issues, and meets with other universities, school districts and localities statewide to publish the Cybersecurity Partnership for Virginia Cities and Counties report (funded by the National Science Foundation).

This region shares just one emergency communications center, and this year, the county successfully rolled out two records management systems for four public safety agencies to replace incompatible legacy systems. IT teams partnered to launch New World Systems for the police department and Image Trends for fire and rescue, as well as computer-aided dispatch system updates.

3rd Allegan County, Mich.

Third place is a familiar ranking for Allegan County, Mich., which finished in the same spot for counties of up to 150,000 residents last year. Despite this success, county leadership notes, however, that within its ongoing vision it needs to be “continuing to evaluate the technology itself to find efficiencies that will ultimately help offset increasing costs.” If there’s a simpler way to sum up the heart of gov tech efforts, we haven’t heard it. It all speaks to Allegan’s practicality. This is an efficient county that is, for example, prolonging the life of its PCs and laptops by using virtual desktops, thereby still enabling quick and responsive computing. Allegan has also redirected money saved there to cybersecurity.

Meanwhile, the county continues to use analytics and look at trends to tailor its website to customer needs, also using data to build new online services and improve upon existing ones. Data is also helping the county with law enforcement and emergency services deployment, for which it is using GIS and computer-aided dispatch mapping to enhance preparedness, noting emergency management events “rely on data sharing, real-time mapping and data system integrations.” This is especially important with an aging nuclear power plant nearby. The county is also engaged in smaller improvements such as replacing its online court calendar system and deploying digital signage that displays docket information in its courthouse lobby. It’s also improving its online veteran services site and its parks reservation system. Moving forward, digital inclusion is also a priority. The past two years, the county has worked with the Connect Michigan Public Services Commission to complete a broadband assessment. That info is now being used by local city leaders to guide projects aimed at increasing broadband access within their communities.

4th Mono County, Calif.

Mono County, Calif., is home to 13,981 residents, and while it may be small in terms of its population, it has big plans for the future. Mono County, which tied for fourth place in its population category, is currently working with the California Department of Transportation to explore using the Highway 395 corridor and the fiber-optic network that runs alongside it as a testing site for smart transportation technologies. The county is envisioning using Highway 395 as a testbed for autonomous vehicles and other emerging technologies, given its two-hour proximity to Tesla’s Gigafactory in Reno, Nev.

In addition to its smart transportation aspirations, Mono County has several Web initiatives as well. The Transparent Mono County website portal is expected to roll out this month and consolidate its open and transparent applications into one location, which will also feature the capabilities to allow users to retrieve information in three clicks or fewer. The county’s website also has an area for contractors and vendors to bid on its projects using a platform where they can enter their business profile, respond to open RFPs and receive notification of new projects.

4th Montgomery County, Va.

Montgomery County, Va., population 98,509, managed to hold onto its fourth-place spot for a third year in a row, this year tying with Mono County, Calif. The county continued its focus on cybersecurity with the completion of two cybersecurity assessments, one by the Virginia National Guard’s Data Processing Unit and the other with a private entity. Recommendations from those assessments will be implemented in a three-phase cybersecurity plan, the first phase of which has already been completed. The county also this year hired a full-time network engineer/security analyst to oversee software and system patches and address vulnerability concerns.

The county has opened a couple of new buildings, including a state-of-the-art dispatching facility for the newly established New River Valley Emergency Communications Regional Authority (911 Authority). The 911 Authority centralizes dispatch functions for the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Virginia Tech Police Department, and the police departments for the towns of Blacksburg and Christiansburg. The Authority has plans to implement next-generation 911 capabilities, including text messaging, into its dispatch services in the future. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office also got 30,000 square feet of office space in a new Public Safety Building, and the Animal Care and Adoption Center opened its new facility to the public in April 2017. Animal adoptions have increased thanks to the improved environment in the new facility, as well as the implementation of a cloud-based animal care management site and a pet finder site. The county’s dedication to social media paid off last summer during a dog food supply shortage — a “code red” Facebook post saw 1,500 pounds of food donated within two days. A second "code red" for kitten food a month later reached nearly 17,000 people and was so effective that some area stores were sold out.

5th Napa County, Calif.

Napa County has been through a lot in the past six months. Its population of 142,456 went through a month-long wildfire in October, where devastation eventually spread across multiple Northern California counties. Staying in fifth place for the second year, Napa County is working toward a citizen-centric approach for IT with constituent safety at the forefront. With the wildfire came shocking realizations about weaknesses in emergency operations. The Emergency Operations Center purchased additional GIS technology to gain more knowledge on pertinent geographical data. IT is also working with Health and Human Services to create a data warehouse to connect data analytics capabilities to different programs in Napa. The existing 911 system will also eventually be replaced, extending service to American Canyon and Yountville in the process. During the fire when people weren’t being notified of what was going on, officials knew change was needed. IT is in the process of purchasing InformaCast, a notification system, to provide enhanced staff notification during emergency events. Currently in place is a NIXLE channel used to communicate emergency alerts, recovery information and act as a key source for community messaging and connectivity. NIXLE is also used to send text alerts on road closures, evacuation orders, shelter information and recovery details.

And despite the focus on getting better prepared for emergencies, traditional IT also got some upgrades. The county website was redesigned and moved to a modern content management system, creating more efficient access to GIS data. Throughout the year, IT leadership will continue beefing up security practices to better safeguard county data, regardless of its location.

5th Roanoke County, Va.

Roanoke County, Va., retained its fifth-place spot this year, continuing to build on its impressive array of open data and citizen engagement efforts with a new app that provides its 93,655 residents with information about the new federal Mountain Valley Pipeline that will run through the county. Through the Mountain Valley Pipeline Viewer application, residents can use an interactive map to view layers of information about the project, including various routes, mile-post markers, workspace areas and tax parcels.

Roanoke County gathered some of the information for the Pipeline Viewer app through the efforts of its newly formed Drone Team, which did a flyover of the project site to map the area. Created under the auspices of the county Fire and Rescue Department in order to help evaluate fire areas and find lost hikers, the Drone Team has quickly proven that it has many more potential applications than were originally envisioned for it. The county is planning on using the team to conduct inspections and create orthomosaics, 3-D meshes and more that will assist in future projects.

The security breach that affected the city of Atlanta at the beginning of 2018 was enough of a wake-up call for Roanoke County to decide that it needed to take a serious look at its own cybersecurity posture. While the county received a good score on a vulnerability assessment conducted by the Virginia National Guard, just above a four on a five-point scale, it discovered that it needed to improve its security training for employees and is already making plans to do so.

6th Franklin County, Va.

In Franklin County, Va., supporting residents and government operations has most notably centered on public safety. These efforts include ongoing improvements to the fire and rescue radio system, and a 911 dispatch fail-over plan with neighboring Patrick County. Additionally Franklin County is leveraging mapping and data to assess response times and make improvements to how public safety crews are deployed. Mapping critical infrastructure, like gas lines, has also been an ongoing effort to keep the county’s 56,000 residents and public safety teams safe during emergency situations.

When it comes to Internet connectivity, Franklin County is taking a proactive approach to broadband through public-private partnerships. The county is currently assessing where technology and service is most lacking and using that information to prompt conversations with service providers about how to fill gaps and design an inclusive coverage plan.

Cybersecurity continues to be a work in progress in the county. Awareness training and cybersecurity insurance are part of the plan, but the county’s detailed strategy continues to evolve as its needs are identified and change. Like many other counties, Franklin is not doing this work unhampered. The state continues to add requirements while funding recedes, and changes to the tax base have prompted discussions about where to go next. A rapidly aging population is compounding the issue of revenue and taxable income. In spite of these challenges, the county is looking to redevelop a business park to move the needle and create more opportunity for tax revenue to make its way into county coffers.

6th York County, Va.

For a county in the smallest population category, York County, Va., has a surprising number of leading technology efforts underway. Many endeavors underline a strategy of upgrading and streamlining systems to operate as efficiently as possible. Examples include consolidating data centers and a new financial management system. York County’s commitment to transparency is demonstrated by a public portal now in development that will offer timely financial information, including tax and real-estate data, on a public dashboard. Engagement tools in regular use include online surveys, a resident notification service, video streaming and an active Facebook presence that has increased its followers by more than 200 percent over the past year and a half. When it comes to public safety, the county sheriff’s department is using drone technology to enhance crime-fighting efforts and lobbying to allow the use of drone-captured data in judicial proceedings. High marks also go to York County for its cybersecurity practices, which it has built upon significantly in recent months. An additional layer of intrusion detection now safeguards police bodycam video on its way to the cloud, as well as the county’s open Wi-Fi network. In-depth traffic analysis helps keep tabs on user activity and ongoing awareness training is continually enhanced to meet evolving threats.

7th Skagit County, Wash.

Located north of Seattle, Skagit County, Wash., faces a host of issues despite the state’s overall healthy economy. Technology is expected to play a key role in improving the county’s public health concerns, for example, with the deployment of a software tool that will evaluate the effectiveness of county health initiatives. New mapping and analytics software will also help the county prevent drug overdoses and deaths. Skagit is mounting a major community engagement initiative that will make meetings more productive and draw in underrepresented groups, and technology will make the county’s engagement more interactive. For example, the government expects to have an online survey tool that will allow commissioners to see how well they are engaging the community, and how they can improve engagement and measure feedback around such issues as new infrastructure for ferry service. The county has also modernized service operations with the Information Technology Infrastructure Library service models, and is the first county to implement a “one-stop” property search that integrates data from separate internal systems to provide a common view of information on its public website.

8th Summit County, Utah

With a population of just under 40,000, Summit County comes in eighth place in its population category for its work in public safety and emergency preparedness, among other initiatives. In reviewing its disaster recovery plan in 2016, the county found they it did have not the computer power to set up a hot site during a disaster. The county purchased the necessary equipment and installed it in late 2017. It included three Dell R630 servers running VMware VSphere 6.5 and a Dell Compellent SC4020 Storage Array with 30 TB of usable disk space. This was a small build, but major for a smaller county and significant, as the county can now run all its applications and storage on it if the main systems were to go down. The setup is a mirror image to the current one and can be flipped and installed in a few hours.

One of Summit County Council’s top strategic goals is to improve the transportation system by reducing traffic congestion. The Bike Share mobile app was a pilot started in 2017 in the hopes of reducing traffic in the summer. It allows residents to register by website or smartphone and pay for rentals, and the “electric bike share” was a huge success. The public signs up easily via smartphone and the website provides statistics on the usage of bikes.

9th Chatham County, N.C.

Chatham County, N.C., is a newcomer to the rankings, finishing 9th  for jurisdictions in its population category. Located in the Piedmont area of the state, just west of Raleigh, Chatham County adopted a new comprehensive plan in late 2017. The county notes that “until that plan was adopted the efforts of Chatham County tech efforts have been pretty traditional.” In the months since it has been put in place, however, the tech team has been rebranded "Chatham IT" and now includes representatives from all county agencies that service other departments. This helps to align tech efforts with ongoing work to improve the overall county government while also continuing traditional IT support. Technologists in Chatham have worked hard to make themselves more visible so that their work is included in all ideas and vendor efforts.

In terms of public-facing work, the comprehensive plan has been published online in its entirety to foster transparency and accountability. While discussions have been had around providing more open data, work has not progressed past the discussion phase. The county website, however, is being reworked with a citizen-centric vision that has already led to the additions of a permitting portal and e-notices. Chatham is also working to collaborate with local municipalities to help bring broadband to unserved and underserved areas, with one specific effort taking the form of grant applications for funding. Throughout the survey, however, what is perhaps most striking about Chatham is its potential for the future. Tech and innovation work at the moment is a bit modest, but with the comprehensive plan now in place, a commitment is being made to incorporating it into more efforts moving forward.

10th Gloucester County, Va.

A sparsely populated coastal region, Gloucester County, Va., cites developing wireless broadband throughout the area as one of its top priorities, an effort that recently resulted in a new public-private agreement with Cox Communications. And in January 2018, broadband was made available for 96 residential and 20 commercial properties in the northern half of the small county, home to a total of fewer than 37,000 citizens.

County meetings are streamed live to residents via the Granicus platform, while other avenues to encourage citizen engagement include text-to-voice Readspeaker via the county website, which also makes more information around budgets and compensation available. In additional engagement efforts, Gloucester County is active on social media, communicating with constituents on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. This year the county also updated its website, streamlining services to citizens and making content ADA compliant.

Gloucester County is in the process of syncing currently siloed databases and systems, an effort that could lead to the development of dashboards, data-consolidation and error-proofing. They are also working toward implementing a central ERP system to create efficiencies across the agency. In the interest of creating strong cybersecurity with a small footprint, the county has moved several key applications to software-as-a-service and other hosted environments.

1st Arlington County, Va.

Arlington County is a first-place digital county for the third year running. Of note among an impressive array of comprehensive initiatives are the county’s engagement efforts, where they continually demonstrate a commitment to service delivery that aligns with citizen priorities. To standardize on their own proven strategies, the county has published a six-step public engagement guide outlining a process for capital projects guided by principles including inclusion and mutual respect, timely and accessible communication, transparency, and accountability. The county is also making strides on open data, with an advisory group weighing in on efforts like an inventory of countywide data, identifying data-sharing opportunities, establishing governance policies and partnering with local universities to extend analytics capabilities. New online tools include an internally developed library app that offers users geolocation, bar code scanning, notifications, meeting room booking and catalog search features.

Collaborative endeavors include serving as host to the first regional government chief information officer summit to facilitate coordination between local jurisdictions on technology and innovation-related issues. Along those same lines, the county is looking into a partnership with area public schools to share network and telephone systems to make operations more efficient. When it comes to cybersecurity, Arlington County has added many new and upgraded tools to its arsenal to guard against phishing emails, ransomware and malware, as well as other threats to the network. A “quick-step” button gives staff a simple way of passing suspicious emails along to IT staff as attachments. To fortify its disaster recovery posture, the county is transitioning from its two county-based data centers to an “active-active” data center setup off-premise in colocation facilities.

2nd Charles County, Md.

Advancing into second place since last year, Charles County has a long-running history with the Digital Counties survey — and 2018 is no different. The county’s ability to build upon its citizen-centric focus plays a large part in its success. Transparency between the locality and constituents is key — and making strides to connect broadband in rural communities is a big piece of the effort. Charles County has been working with cable TV franchises as well as private Internet service providers (ISPs) to help extend connectivity to rural areas.

Expansive online initiatives also help get citizens involved. The county website provides easily navigable resources, including a transparency page to view county budget information, audit reports, and salary data at any time and an interactive checkbook. The GetConnected program also became a mobile-friendly tool that helps connect residents and most of the county’s social media links, all on one page. Internally, the county’s Institutional Network (INet) connects over 120 anchor sites and city departments.

Strengthening cybersecurity efforts continues to be an area of focus for Charles County IT. The Cybersecurity Awareness Training program provides a curriculum for and assessment of full-time and part-time employees in best cybersecurity practices. As mentioned last year, the county chose to retain its cybersecurity insurance to guard against breaches. Taking it one step further, the county will test its own network by undergoing a Comprehensive Risk Assessment.

3rd Cabarrus County, N.C.

Though investing heavily in education and school construction, Cabarrus County, N.C., has continued to support and fund technology initiatives to automate and consolidate services, create shared services, and increase collaboration between departments and jurisdictions. The county partnered with SeamlessGov to transform the way citizens interact with the government and complete a mobile-friendly website redesign with user-optimized content. The new site offers an intuitive and consistent user experience that modernizes citizen/staff interactions. The site provides an integrated live chat feature with a chatbot that offers articles from a new help portal. And if the article doesn’t meet the citizen’s needs, they are connected to an integrated help desk contact form.

The county’s Open Data platform, using Esri ArcGIS online subscriptions, was redesigned for mobile access to provide county data; support local, regional and national collaboration; and provide self-service access to residents, businesses, municipalities, researchers and economic developers. The county also boasts new informational video vignettes to engage and inform citizens about government activities, services and events.

4th Boone County, Mo.

Boone County, Mo., home of the University of Missouri, rose from 10th place in its category in 2017 to fourth place in this year’s survey. Located in the literal heart of the state about midway between Kansas City, Mo., and St. Louis, Mo., Boone County is just a short drive north of the state’s capital. The jurisdiction’s most significant accomplishment in the past 12 months was perhaps the ongoing redesign of its website, more than half of which is now live and available to the public. Like many jurisdictions, Boone is using this redesign to make its overall Web presence more user-friendly, complete with enhanced access to services and data. To that end, the redesign is being guided by citizen-centric research, which has already led to new features such as embedded social media feeds, mobile-friendly functionality, and consolidated menus. Work on the website will continue moving forward in phases.

In terms of internal improvements, much has been done for emergency responsiveness. Last year, the city and county 911 services were consolidated, and they have now moved into a new centralized crisis management hub. Responders and adjacent personnel have also transitioned to new software and a new database that make it easier to share information and do things in the field such as record road closures with a mobile device for subsequent upload to public-facing platforms. Hiring processes have also become more efficient throughout the county, with many moving from paperwork to a digital portal. Although much of the work in Boone is practical, there is innovation underway as well. One such project includes a collaborative effort between Boone County IT, the University of Chicago and the Corporation for Supportive Housing to develop a data aggregation tool to identify citizens in need of homelessness assistance or other services.

5th Davidson County, N.C.

Davidson County, located adjacent to Winston-Salem, N.C., has been a leader in performance-based budgeting for more than 15 years. By focusing on outcomes and evaluating programs by measuring the relationship between resources and results, the county has saved over $29 million during that time period. A key driver in performance budgeting has been technology. For example, Davidson has invested in document management software for its human resources department that has eliminated inefficient paper management while freeing up valuable space once occupied by filing cabinets.

The county also attributes its open, transparent government policies and practices to the success of performance-based budgeting. Examples include live streaming of all commissioner board meetings and a public-facing budget and financial dashboard that shows citizens how and where county funds are being used. To bolster its IT security needs, the county has been carrying cyberinsurance for the past six years. This is in addition to several comprehensive cybersecurity measures taken by the county to protect its information assets.

5th Pitt County

When it comes to providing improved health care for citizens, Pitt County, N.C., which serves 175,842 residents and ranked fifth in the 150,000-249,000 population category, took on two health-care-related initiatives.

In a public-private partnership, Pitt County teamed up with Vidant Health to leverage the company’s investment in electronic health records. In 2017, the county finalized an agreement with Vidant to service resident needs by using the company's hosted electronic health record system. The county found it provided a better health outcome for residents while keeping a lid on costs. PulsePoint, which launched earlier this year, is a public-facing mobile app that lets CPR-trained residents volunteer as first responders in emergencies by connecting to Pitt County’s 911 data system. This app, along with the Vidant partnership, aids the county in its three-year Technology Strategic Plan, which aligns technology initiatives with the county’s mission and goals.

Other initiatives from Pitt County include the addition of a location-based open data platform from Esri, which features frequently-requested information in user-friendly formats. Self-service tools allow citizens to filter, sort and export many types of data, including planning and permitting, land records, education and parks and recreation. The tool is a vastly improved resource compared to the previous county data portal. In addition, a new complaint tracking tool for environmental health allows staff to better monitor conditions and predict future outbreaks.

6th Delaware County, Ohio

Delaware County has taken a number of steps to better communicate and engage with constituents. A farming community north of Columbus, Delaware County is also the fastest-growing county in the state, making improved opportunities to connect with residents all the more essential. Some of these improvements include rebranded visuals such as the county website, which was relaunched in April 2018 after a seven-month overhaul. Public meetings are live-streamed via YouTube, which allows for viewing on mobile devices. The county has also turned to Survey Monkey as well as social media platforms for feedback from residents related to county infrastructure needs.

In June 2018, the county plans to have launched its Text 911 service, which allows the public to send text messages to the Emergency Communications Dispatch Center. And in the Clerk of Court office, court documents can now be e-filed, and search capabilities are now available for attorneys and the public.

Meanwhile, the Delaware County Auditor is now using remotely sensed infrared imagery technology to detect crop types, total acreage and other information. The county is also putting drone technology to work, using UAV imaging tools to inform status updates for the public on various county projects. Other notable efforts include tangible steps toward reducing paper use, and tablet computers issued to county assessors to encourage increased productivity in the field.

7th Union County, N.C.

In Union County, N.C., technology is not about the shiniest new tools or throwing money at problems — it’s about meeting the needs of the more than 222,740 residents and county staff. With a dedicated IT team of just 14, the county has been able to meet the demands of a rapidly changing environment while investing in areas that will serve as the foundation for future innovations. One such example is efforts to implement data standards to ensure that digital records are not only secure, but accessible for future users. In a similar vein, IT staff are evaluating outdated legacy systems for retirement and pushing to digitize physical documents. County staff are also working to create an interdepartmental form and file structure for the planning, inspection, tax and registrar departments. This will improve efficiencies and simplify home purchase paperwork across the four departments.

When it comes to cybersecurity and resilience, Union County makes a valiant effort to defend its IT infrastructure — even in the face of harsh and sometimes dangerous weather. In addition to having a full-time cybersecurity professional dedicated to securing tech assets, an off-site location protects county data from the likes of hurricanes, tornadoes, severe winter weather and even earthquakes. Data is backed up nightly and checked to ensure it is intact and uncorrupted. Plans are in the works to relocate the backup center.

8th Onslow County, N.C.

Onslow County has appeared on lists of the places in the U.S. where opioid abuse is at its worst, and in response its leaders directed IT to help set up a detox center in cooperation with a group of public and private organizations. The department has helped establish the necessary IT infrastructure to run the center when it opens later this year.

The county has committed to opening its GIS data and has published some very utilitarian data sets online, such as permits, health inspections, flood ratings and video of county commission meetings. It’s on its way to a more general approach to open data beyond the geospatial offerings.

In an effort to drive innovation, the county has set up an idea incubator meant to act like an internal startup where employees can put forward creative suggestions. That atmosphere of support for thoughtfulness extends to IT’s methods for staff retention and growth; it prides itself on listening to employees’ ideas and treating mistakes as “paths to growth.” It is also working on setting up an academy where employees can hone leadership and management skills.

Going forward, performance measurement and management will be a big area of emphasis for Onslow County. It is planning to convene a committee that will work on aligning performance metrics with goals. The IT staff will support that effort by using cloud-based business intelligence software and setting up internal and external performance dashboards.

9th Paulding County, Ga.

Paulding County, Ga., which has nearly doubled in population since 2000, earned ninth place in its size category for an emphasis on connecting more than 152,000 residents to services around the clock, expanding its level of cybersecurity training to staff, and updating its existing Internet presence. Officials in the suburban county outside Atlanta already reach citizens via virtual town halls, live-streaming board meetings, and on social media, including via their Facebook site and YouTube channel. Residents can make service requests, register for programs, pay fees, and research voting, land and parcel data via the county website.

But officials are enhancing the city website to aggregate social media connections and include a blog from the chairman. The new site is expected to go live later this year. During the next 12 to 18 months, officials will also improve their expense transparency with the deployment of an Open Checkbook application; and make additional use of voice messaging apps. Also on the way in the next two years are self-service kiosks for citizens and expanded use of digital signage.

The county maintains 12 miles of fiber-optic cable underground and its fiber plant connects to a Tier 1 provider, but future plans are to use special tax monies to connect the plant to a second Tier 1 provider for redundancy. The agency backs up its data nightly, and maintains disaster recovery and continuity plans, but has hired an outside cybersecurity firm to assess staff — and has noticed improvement as a result. Additionally officials have secured their firewalls, and have conducted annual penetration testing.

10th Jackson County, Mich.

A shift in IT leadership this spring means Jackson County, Mich., is in a bit of transitional period, but it has big plans for using technology to help move the county forward. IT’s goals are aligned well with the county’s strategic plan, with particular emphasis on economic development, safe and healthy communities, and government efficiency. The agency is focused on making as many citizen services available online as possible to avoid any unnecessary trips to county offices. Going forward, plans include continuing to update online offerings, developing their GIS division, and implementing mobile apps and Google Home capabilities.

Strengthening the county’s cybersecurity posture tops the IT department’s list of priorities, and staff members are looking into cyberinsurance, as well as ransomware prevention tools, security-as-a-service and data encryption enforcement. Jackson County is also working on its disaster recovery plan, identifying what operations would be mission-critical in the event of a major outage and actively using GIS to determine points of need in its infrastructure and network. On the public safety front, the county has plans to implement next-gen 911 and video surveillance in the near future, along with some use of drones.

1st Dutchess County, N.Y.

Dutchess County, N.Y., claimed the top spot in its population category this year by putting significant emphasis on connecting with residents and finding new ways to innovate and create efficiencies countywide. The county’s Office of Central and Information Services (OCIS) lists citizen engagement as its No. 1 priority, an effort clearly evident in its robust social media presence to communicate and maintain transparency with residents. Expansion of online services, including GIS, electronic payments and more, has created $15 million in annual savings for the public. Further, OCIS is working on redesigning its online presence with a focus on mobile-first and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as industry standard best practices for county Web applications, including headlines that can be read by Amazon Echo devices. Citizen-centric plans for the next one to two years also include texting, Google Home capabilities, chatbots and more.

Shared services are key to OCIS’ work and include the appointment of a county shared services coordinator and 32 shared services available for cities. The county also offers a $1 million annual grant program to incentivize cities to use more shared services. Along these lines, one of Dutchess County’s big projects for 2018 is to upgrade its Emergency Public Safety Program, including 911 computer-aided dispatch among other public safety technologies. The county has announced an agreement to partner with the city of Poughkeepsie Police on these upgrades, which has already saved the town $500,000 before the system even goes live later this year.

To strengthen its workforce, OCIS is expanding business partnerships with area colleges to recruit diverse tech talent and foster an inclusive environment. The agency has also invested heavily in cybersecurity training for county staff, and has made investments in cyberinsurance, as well as ransomware prevention and response to bolster its security enterprisewide.

2nd Chesterfield County, Va.

Chesterfield County recently updated its open data policy and created an enterprise data governance strategy, a backdrop on which it can encourage more information sharing between departments.

The county has worked with regional partners on several projects, including a cross-jurisdictional cybersecurity partnership, creating a website to promote education and awareness about opioids in the area, participating in a health and human services-related platform to share data and help cut down on duplicate entry, and police department teamwork on mapping crime.

Chesterfield IT has invested real resources into establishing a culture of creativity and relationships, setting up the technology infrastructure to allow telecommuting, which 65 percent of its staff takes advantage of for parts of each week. The department also uses a competency tool to identify specific areas where staff could use training or career development, and then recognizes and rewards them for pursuing that new knowledge. There’s also a mentorship program that pairs up employees with leaders. Since 2013, the vacancy rate has dropped from 18 percent to 7 percent.

The teleworking option, along with the county’s heavy use of the cloud for email, file storage and other applications, is also central to its plans to keep working in case of emergency.

The county’s budget for the next fiscal year includes a $1 million increase to support innovation and enterprise initiatives. Among the work it’s taking on: Setting up a cloud-based enterprise business intelligence platform, setting up big data analytics for police and fire department sensors and identifying commonly-FOIA’d information so it can be published on the county’s open data platform.

3rd Frederick County, Md.

Frederick County, Md., which ranked third among agencies with 150,000-249,999 residents in the 2016 Digital Counties Survey, leveraged agency collaborations, citizen engagement, key new tools and population growth to earn third place this year in the 250,000-499,999 population category. Its IT organization leads an IT Technology Council to further interagency collaboration between county and municipal public safety, library and education agencies. The Livable Frederick Master Plan offers a collaboration framework for other agencies, the private sector and community groups. In the next year, county emergency management will link its computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system to adjoining counties to reduce dispatch times.

The county executive has made citizen engagement a priority; the agency surveyed residents in support of the agency’s budget and streams budget presentations and town halls, addressing comments in real time via Facebook Live. It also held an online chat with parks and recreation and reaches residents through many social media platforms. The county, which now serves more than 252,000 residents, reaches them via a responsively-designed website; online apps that use mapping to enable the reporting and tracking of road conditions and issues; and a Notify Me app that offers text or email notification on specific issues, job and bid postings and emergency alerts. The county is seeking a consultant to identify key performance indicators that could be displayed in public-facing dashboards.

The county’s IT organization is using a project portfolio management tool to prioritize and assign staff to key projects. It recently deployed a security incident event management tool using artificial intelligence and machine learning to scrutinize real-time information for potential security issues, and stood up a new Cyber Security Operations Center offering real-time assessment and analysis. Going forward, security officials plan to procure penetration testing tools and mount a phishing awareness campaign.

4th Douglas County, Colo.

After finishing first in last year’s 250,000-499,999 population category, Douglas County, Colo., has dropped to fourth in the current survey, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t progress being made there. In fact, the jurisdiction has a pretty long list of new tech and innovation projects that have gone live or into development this year, including an Ask Douglas County skill for Amazon’s Alexa, a multitude of new GIS apps for both internal and public use, an elaborate expansion of its existing open data portal, a new GeoHub with a wide breadth of layered maps, integrated Waze data to help new transportation projects, and more. As Douglas County notes, its population is tech savvy, and 90 percent of constituents have high-speed Internet connections at home, which has led to a situation where citizen demands require that the jurisdiction’s tech and innovation work keep pace. This is varied work, ranging from publication of financial data dating back five years to expanding the range and speed of Wi-Fi available at the Douglas County Fair.

Internally Douglas continues to do important work in the area of cybersecurity, faced as all jurisdictions are by an ever-evolving set of more complex threats. To this end, Douglas County is using new security technologies, extensive security awareness training for its IT staff and improved cyberincident response plans. As many jurisdictions have, the county has also moved to using DocuSign, which enables electronic signatures that lead to more efficient internal workflows, as well as new e-procurement systems. In terms of the future, innovation work continues. Douglas County is, for example, working to grow its GeoHub into its primary open data site by 2019. Drone usage also continues to expand, with new uses for that tech including for search and rescue and weed control.

5th Durham County, N.C.

Durham County, N.C. — population 312,000 — has jumped from its previous 10th place to fifth place this year in the Digital Counties Survey. The county’s strategic plan focuses on five goals: Community and Family, Health, Secure Community, Environment and Visionary Government. The Computers 4 Kids program is part of the Information Services and Technology department’s commitment to Community and Family. The program refurbishes computers and partners with local organizations to redistribute the computers to area nonprofits, Durham Public Schools and North Carolina Central University.

New apps from Durham County indicate its extensive efforts to meet citizen needs. The county Department of Social Services launched a mobile app to let citizens submit documents for Food and Nutrition Services, Medicaid, Work First (employment services) benefits or Crisis Services applications. The goal is to help people avoid multiple in-person trips to county offices.

Several of the projects and companies overseen by Alphabet Inc., the holding company Google created in 2015, have generated news of late.

On Tuesday,  RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney issued a bullish report about the future of Waymo, the self-driving car company is due to launch commercial operations in Phoenix, Ariz., before the end of the year. 

And on Wednesday, Alphabet's  research and development arm, X, announced that two projects, Loon and Wing, would become independent companies within Alphabet. 

This slight surge in news reminded us that it's been nearly three years since Google blew up its entire corporate structure to form a new parent company: Alphabet.

The shake-up was intended to help all of its businesses operate more efficiently, a move CEO Larry Page was working on for years as a secret project he called "Javelin."

This move also allowed Page to step back from day-to-day operations to "focus on the bigger picture."

Now, Alphabet is a massive corporation that encompasses everything from internet-beaming hot air balloons to self-driving cars to Google Cloud. 

This seemed like a good time to revisit how Alphabet is structured. 

Google officially became Alphabet in October, 2015, with the hope of allowing businesses units to operate independently and move faster. Google cofounder Larry Page is the CEO of the umbrella company, Alphabet.

Alphabet is divided into two main units: Google and Other Bets. Other Bets is best known for its "moonshot" R&D unit, X, but it also houses several other companies. Let's start with the smaller companies under Other Bets.

Alphabet's Access division includes Google Fiber, which launched in Kansas City in 2012 and expanded to about 9 cities. Fiber offers extremely fast high-speed internet (up to 1G) and some TV. It's billed as an alternative to traditional cable companies. It currently has about 200,000 subscribers.

          The White House Sends Its Donor-Whisperer to the Midwest      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Donald Trump kicked off a weeklong European trip on Wednesday by immediately ruffling the feathers of NATO allies over breakfast. Back home, Mike Pence is trying to smooth things over in the Midwest.

The vice president will travel this week to Kansas City, Cedar Rapids, and Chicago for a trio of fundraisers for vulnerable House Republicans: Rep. Kevin Yoder of Kansas, Rep. Rod Blum of Iowa, and Rep. Peter Roskam of Illinois. All three incumbents represent districts Hillary Clinton won two years ago and each sits high atop House Democrats’ November wish list. Blum and Roksam are considered especially vulnerable, and each is facing a Democratic challenger who has posted strong fundraising numbers to date: Abby Finkenauer in Iowa’s First District and Sean Casten in Illinois’ Sixth. (The Kansas primary isn’t until August.)

The GOP has made Pence central to its midterm campaign strategy, particularly its effort to keep control of the House in a year when two dozen or so Republican incumbents are running for reelection in districts that went for Clinton over Trump. And while Pence has not yet proved adept at pushing his preferred candidates over the finish line, few doubt his ability to appeal to the party’s donor class, a significant slice of which likes to be reassured now and again that there is at least some method to the madness in the Oval Office. Pence’s ability to do damage control will again be put to the test during his trip to the heartland.

According to Politico, in addition to the private fundraisers and a few public events with a pro-Trump group, Pence plans to meet one-on-one with “major Midwestern donors” in hopes of allaying their concerns about Trump’s escalating trade war with China.

Iowa Republicans are so worried about the long-term impact of the tariffs on their state’s soybean and pork production that they’ve gone public with those concerns, a rare break with a president who is immensely popular with the party’s base. In a joint letter to Trump late last month, Blum and the rest of the state’s predominantly Republican delegation declared that the tariffs will be “catastrophic” to the Iowa economy and urged the president to “act expeditiously to save our rural economies.”

It’s unclear exactly what Pence can say to put GOP donors in the region at ease about a trade war that has only ramped up this month, though one possibility would be to detail the administration’s so far intentionally vague promise to eventually “support producers” hurt by the tariffs. More likely, Pence will simply remind the wealthy donors of all the other things this administration has already done that they do like, including the GOP tax cuts and this week’s appointment of Brett Kavanaugh.
