Former Gilman first baseman Ryan Ripken will transfer from South Carolina to Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Fla., his father Cal Ripken Jr. confirmed Thursday. “The last thing you want to do is make a big deal about it, but he decided not to go back to South Carolina,” Ripken said Thursday morning before the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation board's annual luncheon. “He's going to get some playing time in. … It's a baseball decision more than anything else.” Ryan Ripken, a 6-foot-6 left-handed first baseman, did not make South Carolina's 35-man roster this spring and redshirted to save a year of eligibility.

GULFPORT, Miss. -- There's gold along the storm-wracked Gulf Coast, where jobs are plentiful, pay is good and billions of dollars of reconstruction aid are available. At least that's what some labor contractors are telling migrant and foreign workers who are trickling into devastated fields and construction sites from as far away as Florida and Mexico. But like the fabled streets paved with gold of immigration lore, the promising job market along the Gulf Coast can be illusory. Although opportunities abound, many workers are finding a harsh and inhospitable environment, according to their advocates from Florida.

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - In the desolate expanse of Palm Beach County's evacuated areas, a few stubborn homeowners are refusing to leave, insisting that they would rather brave the potentially wrath of Hurricane Frances in their plywood-covered houses. "My wife and I will get into the bathtub if it's bad enough," said George Piper, a boat builder who was still boarding up his windows last night at dusk. "I'm probably the only person out here still cutting plywood," Piper said, looking around his deserted neighborhood.
