Mike Sorensen: Utah Jazz: At least pick didn’t get booed

first_img Related All of a sudden we have a little bit of everything going on in the world of sports …It’s probably a good thing the Jazz didn’t invite the fans for draft night at the EnergySolutions Arena like they have in the past. The reaction to the pick of Kosta Koufos would likely have been similar to the reaction at Madison Square Garden when the Knicks chose Italian Danilo Gallinari. Which was similar to the one at my house by my Jazz-fan son when the Jazz chose Koufos …There’s something about unknown big guys with funny names that makes fans wary. Sometimes they work out (Dirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobli) and sometimes they don’t (Darko Milicic, Niciloz Tskitishvili, Oleksiy Pecherov, Greg Ostertag) …The Jazz brass certainly were excited to get a player projected to be picked as high as 13 or 14 at No. 23. However, the simple fact is, Koufos fell to 23 for a reason or else a bunch of teams would have taken him. You can’t say the Jazz got a lottery player. He’s still a No. 23 pick …I’m not saying Koufos won’t be a good player. He’s been compared favorably by some to Mehmet Okur, so perhaps he can take the Turk’s place in four or five years. By then he’ll only be 23 or 24 …Good for BYU’s Trent Plaisted to get drafted after a lot of folks thought he wouldn’t. I’ll still be surprised if he sticks on Detroit’s roster, but then again I’m still surprised former BYU center Greg Kite lasted for 12 seasons in the NBA …Speaking of Kite, did you know he started 225 games during his career, including all 82 in 1990-91 with Orlando? At least Plaisted is a slightly better free-throw shooter than Kite, who shot an abysmal 48.6 percent from the foul line in his NBA career …Once again, no American male players made it to the second week of Wimbledon. This year was one of the worst ever, however, with only one American male player making it as far as the third round, the worst U.S. showing since 1926. With Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova both eliminated last week, the Williams sisters are on a collision course for the finals, unless they start playing like the American men …How about former Salt Lake pitcher Jered Weaver becoming just the fifth pitcher in Major League history to be the losing pitcher in a no-hitter pitched by his own team. Weaver pitched the first six innings of the Angels 1-0 loss to the Dodgers Friday, but his error contributed to L.A.’s only run in the fifth inning …Just when local fans were getting excited about the Blaze, they go and blow a lead and lose a playoff game at home. While it was disappointing, give Danny White and the Blaze credit for recovering from that awful 0-9 start all the way to hosting a first-round playoff game …Just when local fans are getting excited about Real Salt Lake after five straight games without a loss, the team goes and loses in the worst possible way — an own-goal in the 89th minute to one of the league’s worst teams. At least RSL still has more than three months left on its schedule, unlike the Blaze, who are done for the year …Not that an American has to win the U.S. Women’s Open, but it was too bad to see Stacy Lewis fade badly Sunday with a 78. The winner, in case you didn’t see, was 19-year-old South Korean Inbee Park, not to be confused with Angela Park, a 19-year-old Brazilian-born 19-year-old of Korean descent, who lives in California. She finished in a tie for third place with Lewis and In-Kyung Kim, not to be confused with Mi Hyun Kim, who finished in a tie for sixth, and Song-Hee Kim, who tied for 24th …Who’s the best player on the PGA Tour now that Tiger Woods is out for the season? It’s got to be 47-year-old Kenny Perry, who won for the second time this year at the Buick Open and moved into third place on the FedEx points list. Kenny Perry? Yikes … Finally, for all you diehard college football fans, the season begins exactly two months from today for BYU, Utah and Utah State (Weber State starts two days earlier), with training camps a little more than a month away.

‘Rabbit’ has hopped in valley since 1943

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possibleIn the early years he was employed for two years by Civil Service in the supply depot at the U.S. Marine Corps Base in Mojave before it was closed. Then he did a tour in the U.S. Navy from 1950 to 1953 during the Korean War. His duty stations included two years in Japan and bases in San Jose, San Francisco and Moffet Field. When he was mustered out, his gregarious nature (he really likes people) got him lots of jobs. He worked for Earle Flemming’s machinery overhaul business, then laid carpet for a while and worked at Montgomery Ward, but he really liked bartending best and he was good at it. “I tended the bar in all the old places that are long gone now. Remember the old Horn Inn, Cork Room, Club Le Basque, Alec’s? I worked all of those, both the bowling alleys and Sarge’s in Quartz Hill. I loved them all. Club Le Basque and Alec’s mostly drew the judges, attorneys, doctors and NASA crowd.” He sighed. “Those were the days when nobody locked their doors or their cars and a woman could walk down any street alone at night and not be afraid of being attacked. It’s sure not like that anymore.” Montgomery was born in Creston, Iowa, on Aug. 31, 1932, and came to Bakersfield with his family in 1942 when he was 9 years old, because his railroad boiler-maker father was transferred. After Bakersfield they moved to Mojave where, Montgomery said, he received most of his early education. He attended Antelope Valley Joint Union High School and enlisted in the Navy before graduating. “You still had to register for the draft in those days and I didn’t want to get drafted so I joined the Navy,” he said. He doesn’t tend bar anymore now but he’s not retired. For the past five years he has worked part-time at Target. Montgomery and his significant other, Peggy, have been together for 17 years and he has adopted her children: Gail Barnett and Christy Mahorter, both of Lancaster, and Lisa Fabian of Palmdale. He’s a member of VFW Post 7283, American Legion Post 311, and he and Peggy belong to the J&J Social and Travel Club. “For recreation we don’t do too much right now because Peggy has a hip and knee problem that’s pretty restrictive but we do a little traveling with the club,” he said. He said the years have brought a lot of changes to the valley, “some good and some bad, but that’s progress and we have to learn to live with it.” Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread, margarine and coffee, tea or milk, for the suggested donation of $2. Monday: Beef dip sandwich, potato salad, peas and carrots, coleslaw, peaches. Tuesday: Lasagna, stewed tomatoes, tossed salad, apple. Wednesday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, spinach, marinated salad, cake. Thursday: Turkey sub sandwich, potato salad, bean salad, tossed salad, banana. Friday: Roast pork, bread dressing, winter squash, Caesar salad, ice cream.

PALMDALE Bob “Rabbit” Montgomery has been around the Antelope Valley “since Hector was a pup” or, at least, since 1943, and he’s seen it all. He’s not only seen it all, he’s done it all. He got the nickname “Rabbit” from a Scoutmaster when he was 12 and the name stuck. “My friends have called me that for years,” he said. last_img read more
