Bills knock out Tua, roll past Dolphins yet again to win 35-0

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. —

Another Buffalo-Miami game, another lopsided Bills victory. And this one might wind up hurting the Dolphins more than most of the others.

Josh Allen threw two touchdown passes, Zach Moss ran for two scores and the Bills knocked out Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa early with a rib injury on the way to a 35-0 win on Sunday.

 

Devin Singletary rushed for 82 yards and another touchdown for the Bills (1-1). Buffalo has won six consecutive games in the series, doing so by an average of 20 points. This marks only the second time the Bills have won six in a row against the Dolphins (1-1).

“I saw a hunger in our football team this week,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “We’ve got plenty to work on, though, and that’s what we have to get back to. Try to improve every week, that’s the goal.”

Captured on video: Florida paddleboarder fends off attacking alligator with oar

SILVER SPRINGS, Fla. —

A Florida woman who was floating on a paddleboard in the Silver River used her paddle to push away a large alligator that swam directly toward her in a frightful, up-close encounter captured in startling videos and photographs.

The alligator came within inches of Vicki Baker, 60, of Ocala, on Sept. 8. She estimated the reptile to be nearly as long as her 10-foot paddleboard. It hissed loudly at her. She said at one point it opened its mouth, revealing large teeth and its powerful jaw as it floated on the surface.

Family to auction off classic car collection

What took decades to collect, refurbish and restore should be gone in one afternoon.

The Hemken Classic Car collection will be auctioned off Saturday at the Hemken Farm in Williams, Iowa.

 

All the cars belong to Daryl Hemken.

"He started collecting in 1960," said Steve Hemken, Daryl's son.

Steve Hemken says his father's first purchase was a 1914 Model T.

From there, his father's passion for the classics hit cruise control.

"Throughout the '60s and '70s he brought home a lot of cars," Steve Hemken said.

On Saturday, 65 to 70 of his father's classic cars will be auctioned off.

The majority of the money raised will go to McPherson College in Kansas.

The money will endow a scholarship in the names of his parents Daryl and Ann Hemken.

Daryl passed away in 2005, Ann passed last year.

"McPherson is the only college in the country with a 4-year degree program in car restoration," Steve Hemken said.

Jeff Bridges says he was 'close to the pearly gates' while battling COVID-19 during cancer treatment

Jeff Bridges says his cancer is in remission, and he's making progress in his fight against the long-term effects of COVID-19 after a tough battle.

In a new post to his website, the actor says his cancerous mass is now the "size of a marble" and his COVID-19 "in the rear view mirror" after a struggle that began earlier this year.

 

Bridges believes he caught the virus after being exposed at the facility where he was receiving chemotherapy treatment.

He spent five weeks in the hospital, he said, because "my immune system is shot from the chemo."

 

"My dance with COVID makes my cancer look like a piece of cake," he wrote.

He said he's still working on completely foregoing oxygen assistance but no longer needs it to walk around.

Judge cancels Rod Stewart's trial, sets plea deal hearing

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida judge has canceled the trial for rock icon Rod Stewart and his adult son and scheduled a hearing next month to discuss a plea deal to resolve misdemeanor charges.

 

The singer of 70s hits such as “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” and “Maggie May” and his son are accused of pushing and shoving a security guard at an upscale hotel because he wouldn’t let them into a New Year’s Eve party nearly two years ago.

Court records show the hearing is set for Oct. 22 to go over a plea agreement without the Stewarts needing to appear in court.

Phil Collins suffering from health problems, can 'barely hold' drum sticks

Phil Collins says he is no longer able to play the drums due to health issues.

The musician, who is 70, appeared on BBC Breakfast with his Genesis band members to promote the group's reunion tour, and Collins said his son, Nic Collins, will be drumming with the band going forward.

 

As for not drumming, Collins said, "I'd love to but you know, I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand. So there are certain physical things that get in the way."

He admitted that he'd love to be up there playing with his son, saying, "I'm kind of physically challenged a bit which is very frustrating because I'd love to be playing up there with my son." Instead, he will sing with the band.

When this upcoming tour, delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, ends, Collins isn't sure if he'll be touring any longer.

Yankees star Derek Jeter inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame

By JOHN KEKIS, Associated Press

 

Derek Jeter was simply Derek Jeter on his special day — smooth as silk.

 

On a Wednesday afternoon that turned cloudy with the temperature in the 70s and a few sprinkles in the air and adoring fans chanting his name, the former New York Yankees star shortstop and captain was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame after a long wait necessitated by the pandemic.

Greeted by raucous cheers in a crowd estimated at 20,000 that included NBA luminaries Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing, several of his former teammates, and Hall of Fame Yankees manager Joe Torre on the stage behind him, Jeter took his turn after fellow inductees from the class of 2020 Ted Simmons, Larry Walker and the late Marvin Miller were honored. Jeter was touched by the moment and acknowledged how different the ceremony seemed in the wake of the recent deaths of 10 Hall of Famers.

Remembering September 11, 2001

Twenty years ago, a stunned nation watched in horror as the bright skies of a September day shattered right in front of us.

New York's World Trade Center — along with its iconic Twin Towers — crumbled after two hijacked planes crashed into them, killing thousands of people as it fell to the ground below. In Arlington, Virginia, the heart of America's military — the Pentagon — came under the same attack as a jet slammed into the western side of the building. And in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, brave passengers fought to stop their hijacked plane from suffering a similar fate forcing the attackers to crash into a field.

What is a COVID-19 vaccine passport?

By MATT O'BRIEN, AP Technology Writer

 

What is a COVID-19 vaccine passport, and do you need one?

"Vaccine passports" are digital or paper documents that show you were vaccinated against COVID-19 and could help you get into a growing number of places.

 

What they look like and why you might want one depend on where you live, but more private venues, workplaces and governments are requiring proof of vaccination in public settings.

Numerous states including Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming have banned vaccine passports, according to U.S. News & World Report. Utah has a partial ban on vaccine passports.
