ATLANTA – Notre Dame junior wide receiver Golden Tate has been named one of the four nominees for the AT&T All-America Player of the Week award after the fifth week of college football action, and AT&T* is relying on fans to determine who rules the gridiron.

Tate (Hendersonville, Tenn.) helped the Irish rally past Washington, 37-30, in overtime. He hauled in nine receptions for 244 yards and one touchdown. The 244 yards receiving were the most by a Notre Dame player since Jim Seymour set the school record with 276 against Purdue on Sept. 24, 1966 and second-most in school history. Tate also set the highest single-game receiving total this season in the NCAA FBS.

Toby Keith American Ride

From Friday’s Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman.


Toby Keith “American Ride” (Show Dog Nashville)

Prolific country superstar Toby Keith confidently and capably cruises through romantic ballads, funny party songs and brash social commentary on his new album “American Ride.”

The Norman resident already has topped the country charts with the buzz-generating title track, a frank and foot-stomping critique of American culture, from lawsuits and plastic surgery to terrorism and YouTube. While Joe West and Dave Pahanish penned “American Ride,” Keith wrote or co-wrote the remaining 11 tracks.

The Oklahoma native keeps the toe-tapping tempo and showcases his sharp sense of humor with “If I Had One” and “Every Dog Has Its Day.” He augments his favored steel guitars and fiddles with blues-rock flourishes on the party song “Loaded” and the motivational “If You’re Tryin’ You Ain’t.”

He pays humorous and sympathetic tribute to the troops with “Ballad to Balad,” inspired by his latest United Service Organization Tour of Iraq, and exudes affectionate desire on the good-natured two-stepper “You Can’t Read My Mind.”

Those who are willing to look beyond Keith’s bold, often controversial persona know he excels as a balladeer, and his new album rides highest in its softer moments. He convincingly tells the tale of a ne’er-do-well seeing the error of his ways in the affecting “Woke up on My Own,” then delivers unabashed romance with “Tender as I Want to Be.”

But the album’s highlight is “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song),” Keith’s moving and musically fitting tribute to his friend Wayman Tisdale, the basketball-star-turned-jazz-bassist who died in May after a long cancer battle.

OAKLAND, Calif. – Oakland will pay $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a burglary suspect who was left a paraplegic after being shot by a police officer.

The Oakland City Council approved the payment to Charles Davis Jr. during a closed session Tuesday night.

Davis was suspected of burglarizing a church in 2007 when he was shot by the Oakland officer. Though Davis was unarmed, the officer said he mistook items that Davis was carrying from the church for a gun.

Rick Simons, Davis’ attorney, says the money will be used the help the 49-year-old Davis with the “basic needs” of living as a paraplegic.

The settlement comes after the council voted on Sept. 22 to approve a $1.5 settlement payment to the family of a 20-year-old man shot and killed by an Oakland police officer in 2007.
