Photo portrait of Stan Musial in the 1960s.

9:59 PM EST         Saturday January 19, 2013

Baseball Hall of Famer and St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial has died, his family and former team confirmed Saturday.

Musial was 92.

“We have lost the most beloved member of the Cardinals family,” said William DeWitt Jr., the club’s chairman. “Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball.”

Musial died Saturday evening at his Ladue, Missouri, home surrounded by family, the Cardinals said in a statement. According to a post on his Twitter page, which is maintained by his grandson Brian Musial Schwarze, Musial died at 5:45 p.m. (6:45 p.m. ET) of natural causes.

The Pennsylvania-born Musial transitioned from a lackluster pitcher to a stellar slugging outfielder, according to his biography on the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s website.

The left-hander hit above .300 17 times during his 22-year career — all with St. Louis — and earned three National League Most Valuable Player awards, as well as three World Series titles. The only blip came in 1945, in the thick of World War II, when he left baseball to join the U.S. Navy.

After the 1963 season, Musial retired with a .331 career batting average and as the National League’s career leader in RBI, games played, runs scored, hits and doubles. He still ranks fourth in baseball history in total hits, behind only Pete Rose, Ty Cobb and Hank Aaron.

He also stood out for his grace and sportsmanship — having never been ejected once by an umpire. In his retirement ceremony, then Major League Commissioner Ford Frick referred to Musial as “baseball’s perfect warrior, baseball’s perfect knight.”

In 1969, Musial was elected on his first try into the Hall of Fame, calling it “the greatest honor of the many that have been bestowed upon me.”

During and after his playing carer, Musial developed a special relationship with the St. Louis fan base, who knew him simply as “Stan the Man.”

A bronze statue of him stands outside Busch Stadium, which is located in Musial Plaza along Stan Musial Drive.

He continued with the organization for more than 25 years after his playing days ended, serving as vice president and general manager.

And Musial was active in the community, contributing to causes such as the USO, the Senior Olympics, the Boy Scouts and Covenant House.

“I have no hesitation to say that St. Louis is a great place in which to live and work,” he said in his Hall of Fame induction speech. “We love St. Louis.”

His fans returned the favor, revering him for his play as well as his character and commitment to the area.

“Cardinal Nation will never be the same. Rest in peace Stan ‘The Man’ Musial, the best Cardinal there ever was,” wrote one woman, by the name of Elise, on Twitter.

Musial also stood tall outside eastern Missouri. He served between 1964 and 1967 as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

In 2011, President Barack Obama bestowed upon him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

“Stan matched his hustle with humility,” Obama said then. “Stan remains, to this day, an icon, untarnished; a beloved pillar of the community; a gentleman you’d want your kids to emulate.”

Lillian, Musial’s wife of 71 years, died last May — a longlasting marriage that some people, online, called as admirable as anything that happened on the diamond.

Stan Musial’s passing spurred an outpouring of condolences and praise. Commissioner Bud Selig described him as “a Hall of Famer in every sense” and “a true gentleman;” former pitcher Curt Schilling called his life “a clinic in respect, integrity and honor;” and current Cardinal Matt Holliday said it was “an honor to the same uniform.”

The messages from fans were no less heartfelt.

Wrote Jason Lukehart, on Twitter: “In a week that’s shown the dangers deifying athletes, Stan Musial’s death reminds me that once in a great while, there’s a man worthy of it.”

Victim: Police say Teresa Mastracola, 44, committed suicide inhaling helium after they found her body in a Pennsylvania state park

18:19 EST            10 December 2012

A 44-year-old woman, whose body was found in a heavily wooded area in a Pennsylvania state park, was ruled to have committed suicide by inhaling helium gas, police said.

Teresa Mastracola from Millbourne, Pennsylvania was found deep in Ridley Creek State Park, after she went missing a little less than a week ago. Her body was found on Saturday.

Police do not suspect that foul play was involved in her death, but it is still unclear how exactly she committed suicide.

Police were initially reluctant to rule Mastracola’s disappearance as suspicious since the woman, a master sergeant in the Pennsylvania National Guard, was an avid hiker who often spent days out at a time.

She also frequently visited the park. Police have yet to find her car.

Mastracola’s former boyfriend and current roommate first notified authorities on December 2 after he returned home and didn’t find her there.

She was last seen exited her house that morning wearing scrubs. She worked as an imaging Equipment Specialist at Delaware County Memorial Hospital.

He co-workers had also started to worry about her when she did not show up for work.

Scene: Mastracola's body was found in a heavily wooded area of Ridley Creek State ParkScene: Mastracola’s body was found in a heavily wooded area of Ridley Creek State Park

Evidence: Authorities say they do not believe that foul play was involved at that Mastracola was an avid hiker who often visited the parkEvidence: Authorities say they do not believe that foul play was involved at that Mastracola was an avid hiker who often visited the park

Though authorities have yet to provide full details surrounding Mastracola’s death, they are confident that they are dealing with a suicide and officially ruled her death the result of helium inhalation and chemical asphyxia.

Helium inhalation has become an increasingly popular method of suicide in recent years. According to a recent study, reported helium-related deaths spiked from two in 2010 to 42 in 2011.

Between 1993 and 2007 only 18 people were recorded as having died from the gas.

Helium is often used to eliminate the pain and panic that comes with asphyxiation.

Noticing this trend, anti-suicide groups have approached manufacturers of canisters used to administer helium to tell them they were being used in suicides.

VIDEO: Lottery officials identify Matthew Good as the second winner of the $587.5 million jackpot.

December 10, 2012

The second winner of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot was identified Monday as Matthew Good, a married man who moved to an affluent Phoenix suburb last year from Pennsylvania.

Good, 37, had decided to remain anonymous, but lottery winners in Arizona are a matter of public record. The Associated Press filed a public records request to learn his name.

Good took the one-time payout of $192 million from the Nov. 28 drawing, telling lottery officials the looming fiscal cliff was the reason he claimed the winnings now and not in the next calendar year. He had 180 days to claim his share of the jackpot.

Lottery officials wouldn’t say what Good does for a living but described him as a professional who has no immediate plans to quit his job.

A search of property records showed that Good paid $289,900 for his 2,500-square-foot Fountain Hills home in September 2011. The real estate listing describes the house as having gorgeous mountain views, vaulted ceilings, a backyard with an outdoor kitchen and a three-car garage.

Good previously issued a statement that said: “It is difficult to express just how thankful we are for this wonderful gift. We are extremely grateful and feel fortunate to now have an increased ability to support our charities and causes. Obviously, this has been incredibly overwhelming and we have always cherished our privacy.”

No one answered the door Monday at Good’s home, which has a tile roof and desert landscaping, and sits next to a wash.

Neighbors said they were slightly acquainted with Good and described him as a generous, amiable person who keeps up his property.

Randy Tanner, who lives next door, said Good has a warm relationship with his daughter, who is about 5. Good recently helped Tanner carry a table to a friend’s house in the neighborhood.

Retired police officer Jerry Meltzer, who lives across the street, said he didn’t know Good well, but the two had once worked on Meltzer’s car.

“You can’t beat them for neighbors,” Meltzer said.

Good bought $10 worth of tickets and kept the winner in the visor of his car overnight before realizing he was an instant millionaire.

He gave $20 to the cashier of a Fountain Hills convenience store, and the clerk nudged him to spend the entire amount on tickets. He declined the offer.

After Good and his wife learned of their good fortune, he pulled together a team of financial advisers and decided to take his share this month to avoid potentially higher taxes in 2013.

Lottery officials said Good’s wife owns half the prize because Arizona is a community property state.

A mechanic and his wife, Mark and Cindy Hill, of Dearborn, Mo., already have claimed their half of the multistate Powerball prize.

The jackpot was the second-largest in U.S. history and set off a nationwide buying frenzy. At one point, tickets were selling at nearly 130,000 a minute.

Before the drawing, the jackpot had rolled over 16 consecutive times without any winners. In a Mega Millions drawing in March, three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, the largest lottery payout of all time.

Authorities say a 7-year-old boy was shot to death when a gun accidentally went off as his father was getting into his truck outside a western Pennsylvania gun store.

The boy was shot Saturday morning at Twigs Reloading Den in East Lackawannock Township, 60 miles north of Pittsburgh. Store owner Leonard Mohney says it happened in the parking lot.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the boy was shot when his father’s handgun went off as the man got into the truck while holding the gun.

Police say 44-year-old Joseph V. Loughrey told them he had emptied the magazine but didn’t realize a bullet was still in the chamber. Seven-year-old Craig Allen Loughrey was shot in the chest and died at the scene.

State police are investigating the shooting as an accident.

Whenever Ben Roethlisberger is healthy enough to return, he won’t have to worry about missing a game because of Baby Ben.

Roethlisberger and his wife Ashley announced the birth of their son, Benjamin Jr., on his Facebook page:

We would like to let everyone know that last night at 10:06 PM Ashley and I welcomed a healthy, beautiful baby boy into this world.

Roethlisberger caused a stir earlier this season when he said he would not play if his son was born on a game day. But that is no longer an issue anymore. Roethlisberger, who is expected to miss his second game with rib and shoulder injuries, said pictures will be posted this weekend.

This is the second son born to an AFC North quarterback this year. Joe Flacco‘s son, Stephen Vincent, was born five months ago.

In the tale of the “baby” tape, Benjamin Roethlisberger Jr. weighs 7 pounds,1 ounce. Stephen Flacco was eight pounds when he was born.

This photo provided by the Pennsylvania State Police shows Kevin Cleeves.

 

July 28, 2012

A man in south-central Pennsylvania confronting his wife about custody arrangements for their daughter shot to death three people, then fled with the 4-year-old girl before the two were found about 250 miles away in Ohio, authorities said Saturday.

Kevin Matthew Cleeves was trying to contact his wife Friday to make arrangements to pick up his daughter Leia, but she didn’t answer the phone, so he went to a home in Quincy Township, the (Waynesboro) Record-Herald (http://bit.ly/O5EeFX) reported, citing court records.

Police said Cleeves, 35, found a woman and man sitting in a car and began arguing with them, then was ordered to leave. He then shot to death both of them and another woman and took the girl, authorities alleged.

An Amber Alert was issued Friday night but was canceled hours later after the pair were found in Austintown in northeastern Ohio, outside Youngstown.

Cleeves was arrested in the three deaths Friday night in Quincy Township, Pennsylvania state police Trooper Adam Reed. Police had said earlier that Cleeves should be considered “armed and dangerous as well as suicidal.” Cleeves was charged with three counts of criminal homicide Saturday, according to court records.

Reed would not give other information about the deaths, including the names of the victims and their relationship to Cleeves, but said more details would be released later Saturday. Court records did not list an attorney for Cleeves.

A medical technician who was charged last week with causing a hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire was fired from a hospital in Arizona in April 2010, an official at the hospital said. The technician, David Kwiatkowski, was fired after being found unresponsive in a men’s locker room with syringes and needles; tests found cocaine and marijuana in his system, said the official, Monica Bowman, chief executive of Arizona Heart Hospital. Mr. Kwiatkowski, 33, is accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire and contaminating syringes. His strain of hepatitis C has been diagnosed in 30 patients, and testing has been recommended for about 4,700 people in New Hampshire alone. Officials are still determining who should be tested elsewhere. They have confirmed that Mr. Kwiatkowski also worked in Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania before being hired in New Hampshire.
