  • Armstrong faces more doping charges

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lance Armstrong is facing more doping allegations just a few months after he thought he had finally put them to rest.

    Although federal investigators in February closed a two-year investigation without bringing criminal charges, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has filed new doping charges that could strip the seven-time Tour de France winner of his victories in cycling's premier race.

    Armstrong insists he is innocent.

  • Cain throws first perfect game for Giants

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Matt Cain and his wife, Chelsea, returned to the field an hour and a half later for a few more perfect memories. They snapped photos on the mound, posing with the workers who tore it down so the dirt could be sent to the Hall of Fame.

    Then they walked away hand in hand, stopping in left field for an embrace and long kiss.

    The Giants franchise waited a long time for a perfect game, and Cain became the one to finally do it. Not Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson or Juan Marichal or Gaylord Perry before him.

    Fittingly, Cain is the longest-tenured Giant these days.

  • Walton to speak about UFO experience

    On Nov. 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed an unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, left the safety of the work truck to take a closer look. As he walked toward the light of the strange, luminous object, he was blasted back violently by a bolt of powerful energy.
    Fearing Walton was dead, the remaining crew members fled in the truck. When they returned later to check on him, he was nowhere to be found. The crewmen then reported the UFO encounter and Walton’s disappearance to local authorities, only to be suspected of murder.
