Dozens Surrender Guns At New Orleans Gun Buy-Back Event In Algiers

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) — In hopes of curbing the city’s endemic gun violence, New Orleans Councilman Freddie King III and others hosted a gun buy-back event in the whole city on Saturday, August 13 at St. Stephen’s Baptist Church in Algiers.

Residents lined up to trade dozens of handguns and rifles in an effort to get guns off the streets and reduce crime. Those who returned a weapon received preloaded cash gift cards that can be used anywhere credit and debit cards are accepted.

King said the goal was to help reduce violent crime by buying back guns from residents without trial or question. King said he knows New Orleans residents have had enough of the violence and the problem extends far beyond his district, stretching from Algiers to the French Quarter and Marigny.

“It’s not just Algiers. It’s not just District C. It’s not just the West Bank,” King said. “It’s the whole city. And we’re just trying to do our little bit to get guns off the streets.

Like so many others, King said he too has been directly affected by the city’s violent crime.

“Sadly, last week I was at this same church for a funeral service for a man who was like a brother to me, who was killed due to gun violence,” King said.

Redemption event partners included Mayor LaToya Cantrell, Congressman Troy Carter, New Orleans Police Department, Metropolitan Crime Commission, Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, InspireNOLA Charter Schools and the Charter of Algiers. King said he plans to hold more gun buy-back events in the future.

Brother of ex-NFL star Aqib Talib named suspect in fatal shooting near Dallas, police say

Brother Of Ex-Nfl Star Aqib Talib Named Suspect In Fatal Shooting Near Dallas, Police Say

The brother of former NFL star Aqib Talib was named the suspect in a fatal shooting at a Dallas-area community park, police said Sunday.

A murder warrant for Yaqub Talib was active Sunday afternoon following an altercation a day earlier at the Lancaster Community Park that left an unidentified adult male dead, the Lancaster Police Department said.

Police described the park as having multiple football fields for youth leagues, and said officers were told of a dispute between a coaching staff and an officiating crew once they responded to the scene Saturday.

“During the disagreement the opposing coaching staff were involved in a physical altercation and one of the individuals involved in the altercation discharged a firearm striking one adult male,” police said.

“The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment where he was later pronounced dead.”

Aqib Talib, who played 12 seasons in the NFL, wasn’t named in the police announcement, but his attorney told TMZ that the retired cornerback was at the park.

“Aqib was present when this unfortunate incident occurred and is very distraught and devastated over this terrible loss of life,” the attorney said. “He would like to convey his condolences to the family of the victim and to everyone who witnessed this unfortunate tragedy.”

Lancaster is part of Dallas County, located about 16 miles south of the city’s downtown area.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, and urged anyone with information about Yaqub Talib’s whereabouts to come forward to authorities.

The Talib brothers spent part of their childhoods in Dallas.

Aqib Talib, 36, won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos in 2015, and also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams during a career that took place from 2008 to 2019.

He was a five-time Pro Bowl selection who recorded 35 career interceptions, including 10 that he returned for a touchdown.

Aqib Talib became an NFL analyst for Fox after retiring as a player, and recently joined Amazon Prime Video for its “Thursday Night Football” broadcasts.

The CDC is FINALLY (sort of) catching up with reality

The Cdc Is Finally (Sort Of) Catching Up With Reality

After years of absurd COVID theater, the Centers for Disease Control has finally relaxed its guidelines on quarantine, social distancing and testing.

Alleluia! But it’s not enough.

Good to finally give up the fake the idea that standing six feet away from someone while sharing their airspace will keep you from catching COVID. (We now know it’s good airflow.) But it took bureaucrats more than a year to catch up with the science, even as the directive did unending social damage.

As for the insane demand that vaxxed people just exposed to the virus has to self-isolate for more than a week: this has done nothing for the overall results of COVID in the United States. But he did crippling businesses and disrupting schooling amid already massive learning losses due to lockdowns.

But a lot of damage has already been done (and probably irreversible for children).

The CDC has also changed its tone on large-scale testing of asymptomatics. Logic: current science has shown that tests are worse than useless as blunt instruments.

But the agency won’t let go of its commitment to masks, still recommending them indoors in areas with high COVID “community levels.” – although mask mandates have had zero noticeable effect on the pandemic.

Notably, the CDC change comes at an opportune time for Democrats, who need big wins before November.

Then again, most Americans ignored earlier CDC guidance for months, treating the virus as the low-level risk it poses to nearly everyone.

COVID “is here to stay,” said a CDC epidemiologist. Good for the agency to partly catch up with reality — while showing once again that our public health “experts” are anything but.

Yankees bullpen righting itself after recent struggles

Yankees Bullpen Righting Itself After Recent Struggles

BOSTON — With Scott Effross getting the save Saturday night, the Yankees have had 10 players record a save this season. That is the most by any team in the majors and after Clay Holmes recent struggles, it leaves the Bombers looking for guys to close out games now.

“I mean, it’s going to evolve. We’ll see,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said before Sunday night’s series finale against the Red Sox at Fenway Park. “I do feel like we have a handful of guys that are capable of doing it. It probably would be great to get to a point where we just say, alright, Clay, you’re back in there, whatever.

“But also I feel like they’re all capable of getting back-end outs,” Boone added. “We  want to put them in the best kind of positions to be as successful as they can be.”

Effross was effective in the Yankees 3-2 win Saturday night. Lou Trivino has closing experience and Boone said that Wandy Peralta would be an option.

Aroldis Chapman has made nine straight scoreless appearances after a season and a half of struggles. The 34-year old has been used very carefully since his return from the injured list, where he spent six weeks with an Achilles issue and working on getting his delivery ironed out.

“He could be,” Boone said of Chapman.

Jonathan Loaisiga, who had five saves last season when Chapman struggled, has been inconsistent this season. Their most reliable relievers aren’t here right now. Michael King is out for the season after fracturing his elbow and Ron Marinaccio, who had earned Boone’s trust for high-leverage innings, is in Triple-A because of a roster numbers crunch.

“They can all be. They’re all in play. They’re all in play, just depending where we are on a given night, their availability and where we are in the lineup,” Boone said. “We’ll just kind of figure it out.”

Since the All-Star break the Yankees have blown a lead seven times, second only to the Rockies in the majors. Before the All-Star break the Bombers were tied with the Braves for the fewest (11) in the big leagues.


After going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Saturday night, Aaron Hicks was not in the lineup Sunday night. The switch-hitting center fielder has struggled to get any power this season and his last month has been particularly difficult. Over the last 28 days, Hicks is hitting .184/.296/.184 with a .480 OPS. His last extra-base hit was July 9 at Fenway when he homered for just the sixth time this season.

“I know he did some things yesterday in his pregame work to try and make some adjustments and find some things hands and rhythm wise. Yeah that’s just been something that’s been kind of a struggle all year for us is that extra base hit,” Boone said. “He drives the ball so well. He is still working his way on base, which is good. So we got to continue to work to try and unlock a little bit more.”

Hicks, who is in the fourth year of a seven-year deal worth $70 million, hit 27 home runs in 2018. He’s struggled to regain that form. He has also been hit hard by injuries, requiring Tommy John surgery in 2019 and then wrist surgery that cost him most of the 2021 season.


Giancarlo Stanton is scheduled to do the entire pregame workout with the team Monday before they play the Rays, that includes shagging balls in the outfield and taking live batting practice, Boone said.

Stanton could be playing in minor league rehab games sometime this week, Boone added.

The slugger has been on the injured list since July 24 with tendinitis in his left Achilles.

The Yankees could use his bat. Stanton has 24 homers and 61 RBI, but was on a four-game 0-for-10 with seven strikeouts slump before going on the IL.

After brief Twins call-up, Saints’ Aaron Sanchez is ready for next opportunity

After Brief Twins Call-Up, Saints’ Aaron Sanchez Is Ready For Next Opportunity

There was an interesting pitching matchup at CHS Field on Sunday afternoon: Columbus started Cody Morris, who is on major league rehab, and the Saints started Aaron Sanchez, who is in major league purgatory.

Both looked ready to get back to where they are confident they belong.

Morris, who held the Saints hitless through 3 1/3 innings, left the game after giving up a solo home run to Mark Contreras in the fourth. Sanchez pitched five shutout innings, allowing just three hits, but the Saints fell to the Clippers 5-3 in 10 innings.

The Twins recalled the 30-year-old Sanchez two weeks ago, and he made a solid start against the Detroit Tigers, allowing two runs on two hits and striking out eight over five innings. The next day he was designated for assignment, which exposed him to being picked up on waivers by another team.

When no team claimed him, Sanchez accepted a return to the Saints. He faced the same situation at the end of May as a member of the Washington Nationals organization. He elected to become a free agent rather than return to Triple-A.

Going the free-agent route didn’t have the same appeal this time.

“I feel like there’s opportunity (with the Twins),” Sanchez said. “I feel I opened up eyes. They’ve got a dude who’s got experience who has played in (big) moments.”

While he obviously hoped he would stick with the Twins, Sanchez said he was not devastated about being designated for assignment.

“Maybe you go through the claiming process and you end up getting claimed,” he said. “Now you (go) to the big leagues and you’re somewhere else. It didn’t happen, but bad timing, I think. Teams already had their team set; the trade deadline came and went.”

Sanchez said being back on a major league mound didn’t produce any particular emotions. He simply wanted to show all of baseball that his injury woes are behind him.

“I was back in my comfort zone,” he said. “It was like, ‘Open up some eyes. You were down here doing what you had to do to get back here. Now go out there and compete and have some fun.’

“I have a lot of game left in me. That start just proved to me that I did. I knew I was hitting my stride. It’s August and I got 21 swings and misses. I know my stuff can play there. It’s just about staying locked in until I get that next opportunity.”

The question now is whether it will come this season. Major league rosters expand from 26 to 28 players on Sept. 1. Only one of the additions can be a pitcher. Current Saints Ronny Henriquez, Jharel Cotton, Jovani Moran, Devin Smeltzer, Brad Peacock and Sanchez (and perhaps others as needs arise) all have shown enough to warrant consideration.

Being able to control only what he can control, Sanchez looks ahead only as far as his next start.

“I’m down here to finish strong for me, to finish strong for what I set out to do this year,” he said. “If my name gets called I’ll be ready.”


Recent call-up Chris Williams picked a good time for his first hit with the Saints. His solo homer tied the game at 3-3 in the eighth inning.
