Throughout its rocky 11-season history, mismanagement was often at the heart of the bj-league’s biggest problems. The league grew so fast (from six to eight to 10 to 12 to 13 to. . . eventually 24 teams this past season (two clubs also folded and another defected), and the league and teams’ office staff turnover was so high, people never really had a chance... As Basketball Navi scribe Kei Sadayama told Hoop Scoop in February 2011, “Expansion and growing the bj-league are not good moves. If the number of teams increases, unqualified players will also increase. Unfortunately, expansion never stopped. The league never had a chance to grow and mature in a common-sense manner. By the 11th season, the talent was spread too thin across too many teams with too many game officials not experienced or qualified enough to be working at the pro level. What’s more, the decrease in import players on each team (from five to four to three) created an uneven flow to many games, with the problem compounded by alternating-quarter import quota rules (which changed several times over the years) that... In May 2009, Tokyo Apache forward Dameion Baker suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in the championship game against the Ryukyu Golden Kings at Ariake Colosseum. Baker’s severe injury required surgery and physical rehabilitation. But it turned out that then-team CEO Manabu Saiki’s staff didn’t have medical insurance for Baker. And in a long, drawn-out dispute with Baker, including four face-to-face meetings with team officials, Saiki refused to pay for all of Baker’s medical bills. Baker returned to his home in North Carolina to complete physical rehab, so he could start working again in the family construction business. Baker said the Apache offered to pay for half of his rehab costs in North Carolina. His bill totaled $4,500, he told The Japan Times, and received $245 from Tokyo. If the league had a strong administration, it might have been able to force the Apache to meet its obligations. And if a players’ union had existed and addressed the issue in an aggressive manner to FIBA, basketball’s world governing body, maybe conditions could’ve improved for players who were exploited by some teams. Another shocking saga: The Osaka Evessa and league office, spearheaded by commissioner Toshimitsu Kawachi, forced iconic superstar forward Lynn Washington to retire in April 2012 after he was exonerated of drug charges — suspicion of smuggling...

Whispers in the Cedars: Port Gibson, Mississippi's Wintergreen Cemetery by William L. Sanders “The purpose of this book is not only to list those laid to rest in this beautiful, historic burial ground, but also to provide an easy and accurate way to locate specific graves, by using the maps and locations referenced within.” In this, author Sanders has admirably succeeded. Thoroughly researched, Whispers in the Cedars provides a systematic guide to this revered resting place in Port Gibson, Mississippi. Wanting “to let the stones speak” for themselves, Mr. Sanders records the information contained on each gravestone. And an extensive Index of Last Names offers ready access to the contents. “It is my sincere wish that the reader will find this book not only valuable as a genealogical reference tool, but may find it entertaining as well. I hope you enjoy it!” Again, a wish fulfilled in this book of remembrance and dedication.
