  • County blocks media from lawmaker meetings at US Open

    Updated: 2 hr ago

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Pierce County officials say that a presentation that lawmakers will attend in exchange for free admission to this month's U.S. Open golf championship will be closed to the media. The state's Legislative Ethics Board said earlier this year that the $110 tickets are acceptable exemptions to state rules that cap lawmaker gifts to a $50 value because county officials said that lawmakers won't be at the tournament primarily as spectators. Instead, they will learn about developments to the site of the tournament expected to draw more than 200,000 visitors. County officials have offered more than 40 lawmakers free admission to the event, but they're not yet sure how many plan to attend.

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    Fred Hoiberg’s homespun nickname, his prolific scoring at Iowa State and his excellent coaching tenure at his alma mater led most to believe he was a so-called “college” guy. Hoiberg corrected the record Tuesday after the Bulls introduced him as their coach, replacing Tom Thibodeau. “On off nights after I got my scouting work done, I’d watch NBA games, not college games,” Hoiberg said. “And I always tried to pick the brains of the best minds in the world, and I think that’s in the NBA.” Said general manager Gar Forman: “Obviously there are some differences in the rules and the X’s and O’s, but I’m a firm believer that coaching is coaching.
