Both were place in the Pike County Jail and held on $75,000 bonds. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Published 3:00 am Saturday, September 3, 2016 Jeremy Jermol Elijah Rumph, 24, of Brundidge posted bail on Thursday and Vanquavious Ventrell Flournoy, 21, also of Brundidge posted bail on Friday.  Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport said a third suspect, Brian Williams of Jacksonville, Fla., is expected to turn himself in to the Brundidge Police Department in the next couple of days.“We’re giving him time to turn himself in but, if he doesn’t come in a day or two, we’ll notify the U.S. Marshals and they’ll go get him,” Davenport said on Friday. Davenport said the charges of attempted murder stem from the intent of the crime. “We know there were three shooters and somebody got killed and two others were shot. What we don’t know are the intentions of the shooters,” Davenport said. “And, there could be other shooters. It was rumored that there were more than three shooters. The crime is still under investigation. We are not through with this investigation.” Davenport said three weapons were recovered at the scene that lead to the arrests. The Brundidge police chief said the arrests will bring some measurer of closure to Ransom’s family and that is satisfying.  “But make this clear,” Davenport said. “Our main goal is to enforce the law. We want to make sure justice is done. We want to know who killed this young man, and why it was done.” Book Nook to reopen “And, there are some that know both sides,” he said. “The City of Brundidge, the state and Crime Stoppers offered a reward of $12,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction but no one came forward. But we have two men charged in the case and the third should be charged soon. We are continuing the investigation. We want to make sure that nobody involved gets away.” Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Skip You Might Like Volunteerism pays big at PCES Walmart DC managers visited Pike County Elementary School in Brundidge Friday to present a check to Tracy Arnold, principal, from… read more Latest Stories Brundidge suspect given chance to surrenderlast_img read more

What’s next as MLB implements schedule for 2020 season after MLBPA vote

first_imgHow will the schedule look? The most expected scenario is a schedule heavy on division games and interleague matchups against corresponding divisions (i.e., East vs. East). That will help to ease team travel, which is a safety consideration, and make division races fairer.How much money will the players make? They’ll be paid their 2020 salaries on a pro rata basis, which for a 60-game schedule would mean about 37 percent of their full salaries. MLB owners balked at prorated pay for a longer season, citing the prospect of no paying spectators this season.Can the players still file a grievance against the owners? Yes. The union had to weigh giving up that leverage. Owners remain upset that the MLBPA came to them with a counteroffer after Manfred made it appear as if he and MLBPA executive director Tony Clark had hashed out the “framework” of a deal last week. Expect both sides to claim bad faith if the players go through with a grievance. DeCOURCY: Those closest to MLB continue to misunderstand fans’ relationship to gameThe union needs to tell MLB by close of business Tuesday whether players a.) Can report for training camps by July 1 and b.) Will agree to the lengthy health and safety protocols that were proposed during negotiations. The MLBPA, in its announcement, said it anticipated finalizing protocols “in the coming days.” If they’re installed, they’ll be severely tested; more than three dozen MLB players and staffers reportedly have tested positive for the coronavirus in recent weeks.More hardball is to be played with the collective bargaining agreement set to expire after the 2021 season.MLB return-to-play highlightsA quick look at some of the effects of the union’s vote and MLB’s announcement.A two-month season. Commissioner Rob Manfred reportedly will set the schedule at 60 games, a figure observers believe was about what MLB wanted all along. The season reportedly will begin in late July and end on the regularly scheduled Sept. 27. That will prevent disruption of the playoff schedule and not endanger any payments from broadcast partners Fox and Turner.No expanded playoffs. The postseason field will remain at 10 rather than the proposed 16. A 10-team field will ensure a late-October finish to the World Series and ease concerns over baseball being played during a possible fall breakout of the virus.The DH in both leagues for 2020, at least. That change is baked into the safety protocols. MLB offered not to implement a universal DH in 2021 if there is no 2020 season, an attempt to sweeten the offer the players rejected Monday.MLB return-to-play questionsA quick look at key questions after the union’s vote and MLB’s announcement. MLB moved closer to a 2020 season with Monday’s machinations by the MLB Players Association and the commissioner’s office. After the union’s executive board voted 33-5 not to accept the owners’ latest offer, MLB announced that it would exercise the power it was granted in March to unilaterally set a schedule.In a sign of the enmity between the sides, baseball’s announcement took a swipe at the players. It listed the “significant benefits” the union turned down, such as $25 million in postseason cash and players being allowed to keep about 20 percent of the $170 million salary advance baseball gave them after spring training was suspended in March because of the COVID-19 outbreak.last_img read more
