Florida Panthers hire Boughner as new coach

2017-06-12

(The Sports Xchange) – The Florida Panthers named Bob Boughner as their head coach on Monday. The former NHL defenseman becomes the 15th coach in the franchise’s 24-year history, and its fifth since 2011. “After an exhaustive search, we are pleased to welcome Bob as the new head coach of the Panthers,” general manager Dale Tallon said of the 46-year-old Boughner. “He sees the game in a modern way and is eager to work with our young players. “During the interview process, Bob blew us away with his preparation, his passion, knowledge and dedication to the game. We believe that he is the right leader to get our team back to competing toward our goal of winning the Stanley Cup.” Boughner spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach with the San Jose Sharks. The Panthers have been without a coach since April 10, following the firing of interim coach Tom Rowe after a season in which the team posted a 35-36-11 mark to finish 14 points...

Seattle to become latest U.S. city to tax sugary drinks

2017-06-06

Seattle’s City Council voted on Monday to levy a special tax on sodas and other sugary beverages sold to consumers, becoming the latest of several local government bodies across the country to take such action for the sake of public health. The measure, to be signed by Mayor Ed Murray on Tuesday, was approved on a 7-1 vote despite staunch opposition from the American Beverage Administration, which said the tax would hit poor and working-class families and small businesses hardest. Enactment will add Washington state’s largest city to a growing national movement seeking to curb consumption of soft drinks and other high-caloric beverages that medical experts say are largely to blame for an epidemic of childhood obesity. Other localities that have adopted similar measures during the past few years include Philadelphia, San Francisco, its Bay-area neighbors of Berkeley, Oakland and Albany, California, Boulder, Colorado, and Cook County, Illinois, which includes...
