Sources: Bears to release kicker Cody Parkey

The Chicago Bears are releasing kicker Cody Parkey, league sources confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

Parkey missed eight field goals — including a 43-yard kick that would have beaten the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the playoffs — in his first season with the Bears.

The Bears signed Parkey to a four-year deal that included $9 million in guaranteed money last March.

Bears coach Matt Nagy expressed disapproval with Parkey’s decision to appear as a guest on "The Today Show" five days after missing his final attempt against Philadelphia.

The NFL Network was first to report Parkey’s release.

Forgotten New Mexico development is a haven for dumping

RIO RANCHO, N.M. — It was supposed to be a planned development aimed at giving residents a taste of the desert of the American West, in all its peace and natural beauty.

Instead, an isolated, unincorporated area northwest of Albuquerque has become a harbor for illegal shooting ranges and the disposal of stolen cars, old appliances and even bodies.

The land known as Rio Rancho Estates, once envisioned as place for upscale homes, is a popular spot for illegal dumping, the Albuquerque Journal reports . That’s because of easy access provided by about 660 miles (1,060 kilometers) of well-maintained dirt roads, Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Keith Elder said.

He says almost 40 percent of all stolen cars that were recovered throughout the county last year were found within 21 square miles (...

The Minnesota Wild will have to push through the playoffs without their top defenseman, as the team officially announced Monday night that Ryan Suter requires surgery on his fractured right ankle and will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

In 77 games this season, Suter averaged a team-high 26:47 time-on-ice per game and tallied six goals and 45 assists...

County drops plans for women’s recovery home

The Bernalillo County Commission recently voted to sell the house at 305 Lagunitas Lane SW that was at the heart of a dispute between neighborhood groups and planners of a facility for homeless women. (Greg Sorber/Albuquerque Journal)

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — After getting pushback from future neighbors, Bernalillo County last month officially abandoned plans to run a recovery home for homeless women.

The county had been granted a facility on Lagunitas SW in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico. The plan was to use it to provide a recovery home for homeless women.

But there was so much opposition from neighborhood groups that the building sat vacant for years, said Larry Gallegos, a spokesman for the county.
