Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the biggest names in NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing), has surprised the racing world by announcing he will retire at the end of the 2017 season. The decision was announced by Hendrick Motorsports, Earnhardt’s team, on Tuesday morning. Earnhardt, a two-time Daytona 500 winner and the son of seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Sr., has consistently been one of NASCAR’s best-loved drivers, but has suffered multiple concussions over the past few years, and missed the final 18 races of last season after crashes in Michigan and Kentucky. He returned to racing this year with no lingering effects from the concussions, but admitted there were times during his rehabilitation when he wondered if he would race again.

He also checked another French-language newspaper of the time, La Patrie, for additional evidence of the Toronto-Wanderers start time — and, within minutes, found a virtually identical game-day advertisement confirming the 8:15 p.m. faceoff. "There are situations when information is hard to find, and then there are situations where the difficulty is in knowing what to look for," he said, noting that the discovery of the Montreal start time "belongs to the second category".

Picton - Quinte News: Leak from barge leads to water emergency in Prince Edward County

A partially submerged barge in Picton Bay, one of the finest natural harbours on the Great Lakes, had local residents worried about environmental impact after it started sinking Friday. Tuesday, the county declared a water emergency after a substance that leaked from the barge came too close to a water intake pipe. Bottom photo shows the same barge last week as it was being hauled aggressively through heavy ice on the Bay of Quinte's Adolphus Reach about 6 miles east of Picton on its way to where it sank in the town's harbour. It appears the unusually heavy late-season ice damaged the hull and led to the sinking. The tug-pulled barges have been struggling to make their way through the hull-ripping ice for more than 10 days as they deliver gravel from Picton to Amherst Island for the erection of Algonquin Power's troubled wind turbine cluster there. Amherst Island is about 15 miles east of Picton and is situated between the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario. Local sources say there was no submitted Maritime Safety Plan for the project even though one was promised, and the barge route from Picton travels through one of Ontario's top recreational fishing areas just weeks before the opening of the fishing season which draws tens of thousands of anglers to the region. The sound of the barges crunching through the heavy ice, lined with gravel-filled dump trucks, has concerned local residents. No ice breaker has been involved and there is no information on how much fuel is onboard each dump truck. The empty trucks can be seen on a second barge in the bottom photo. The spill is also upstream from water intakes for Town of Greater Napanee and city of Kingston. ~ top photo Dave Tugwood Save Picton Bay/Facebook, bottom photo

Randy Bachman remembers Chuck Berry, whose every record was a guitar lesson

Jon Pareles - NY Times: Chuck Berry, legendary musician and
songwriter who helped define Rock ’n’ Roll, dead at 90

While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they did themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment. His guitar lines wired the lean twang of country and the bite of the blues into phrases with both a streamlined trajectory and a long memory. And tucked into the lighthearted, telegraphic narratives that he sang with such clear enunciation was a sly defiance, upending convention to claim the pleasures of the moment. In “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Can’t Catch Me” and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In “Promised Land,” “Too Much Monkey Business” and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons.
