And in 2013, biologists found five striped knifejaws alive in a water-filled bait box on a 20-foot-long Japanese boat washed up in southwest Washington.<p> http://www.thedove.us/news/2015/04/17/tsunami-debris-boat-found-passengers#comments News 2011 Japanese Tsunami Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:45:37 +0000 Jim McCoy 10918 at http://www.thedove.us Prized Prospect To Debut For Cubs http://www.thedove.us/sports/2015/04/17/prized-prospect-debut-cubs <p>Prized prospect Kris Bryant is in the majors.<p> <p>The Cubs added Bryant to the roster for Friday's game against San Diego. Bryant is batting cleanup and playing third base against James Shields and the Padres.<p> <p>Bryant and agent Scott Boras made it clear they were not happy that he opened the season in the minors. He had a dominant spring training, but by waiting to call him up, Chicago gained an extra year of control before he can hit free agency.<p> <p>Friday is Day 13 of the season, which means Bryant could at most accumulate 171 days of major league service. Because 172 days counts as a year, keeping him in the minor leagues through Thursday ensured he would not be eligible for free agency until after the 2021 season.<p> http://www.thedove.us/sports/2015/04/17/prized-prospect-debut-cubs#comments Sports Chicago Cubs Kris Bryant Major League Baseball Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:42:14 +0000 Jim McCoy 10917 at http://www.thedove.us RBC Heritage Day Two: Spieth Rallies http://www.thedove.us/sports/2015/04/17/rbc-heritage-day-two-spieth-rallies <p>Jordan Spieth fixed his game in a hurry. He shot a 9-under 62 Friday to get back in contention at the RBC Heritage.<p> <p>He had opened with a 3-over 74 in the first round but recovered with the second-lowest round ever at Harbour Town Golf Links. He was one shy of the record 61 by David Frost in 1994.<p> <p>Spieth's nine-birdie, no-bogey performance moved him from tied for 93rd and outside the cut line this morning to tied for fifth and two shots behind leader Matt Kuchar. More than half the field was still on the course.<p> <p>Spieth said he retooled his game at practice Friday. He came to Sea Pines Resort after his extraordinary week at Augusta National and a two-day celebratory tour in New York.<p> http://www.thedove.us/sports/2015/04/17/rbc-heritage-day-two-spieth-rallies#comments Sports Golf Jordan Spieth RBC Heritage Fri, 17 Apr 2015 19:37:21 +0000 Jim McCoy 10916 at http://www.thedove.us Medford City Council Drops Beehive Ban http://www.thedove.us/news/2015/04/17/medford-city-council-drops-beehive-ban <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-story"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="filefield-file"><img class="filefield-icon field-icon-image-jpeg" alt="image/jpeg icon" src="http://www.thedove.us/sites/all/modules/filefield/icons/image-x-generic.png" /><a href="http://www.thedove.us/sites/default/files/images/20120327-Honey Bee Support-GFX copy_3.jpg" type="image/jpeg; length=14782">20120327-Honey Bee Support-GFX copy.jpg</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Medford City Council has voted to drop a ban on beehives.<p> <p>The Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/aOEcPN ) the council voted 4-3 to allow up to three beehives in a residential yard.
