WASHINGTON (AP) — Nationals manager Davey Johnson got what he wanted, a second consecutive rainout to give his battered team an extra day to heal.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Retired quarterback Brett Favre is taking some of the blame for his ugly departure from the Green Bay Packers. Favre told WGR 550-AM in Buffalo on Thursday that he was “at fault” in the breakup, though he says he feels like “both sides had a part in it.” Favre also says he has patched up things with Aaron Rodgers. After Rodgers arrived at Green Bay, Favre flirted every offseason with retirement but always came back.

A man was arrested in northern Wisconsin's Oneida County last week after using a snowmobile to flee law enforcement officers. Of course, being late May, there was no snow in sight. “I actually asked them to repeat the information” when dispatchers relayed the call, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Pat Novesky said in a DNR news release. He initially thought the report of a high-speed chase involving a snowmobile was a joke when he received it at 6:40 a.m. on May 31. But it was a real case.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — With every phone call they make and every Web excursion they take, people are leaving a digital trail of revealing data that can be tracked by profit-seeking companies and terrorist-hunting government officials.
For nearly a year after her divorce, a former Eveleth woman opened up to a man she dated online, sharing intimate details of her personal life and struggles with her ex-husband. Then, prosecutors say, she got a surprise. Her ex-husband was the man on the other end of the computer. Brian Matthew Cornelius, a 36-year-old Sturgeon Lake man, created an elaborate online persona under an assumed name and with borrowed photographs to strike up a digital relationship with his former wife who now lives in West St.
A Minnetonka, Minn., couple's north woods canoe trip ended tragically when their boat capsized and the man was lost in the rapids of a river along the Canadian border.
