Brewers' Gamel tears ACL again, out for seasonSubmitted: 02/18/2013
Story By Associated Press

PHOENIX - Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the second time in less than a year and will miss the season.

Assistant general manager Gord Ash made the announcement Monday.

The 27-year-old was injured May 1 at San Diego when he hit a wall while chasing Nick Hundley's foul popup, cutting short his season after 21 games.

Gamel reinjured the knee during the first week of spring training and a MRI revealed the tear.

Corey Hart, who moved to first base after Gamel's injury last year, is on crutches after right knee surgery on Jan. 25 and is expected to be out three-to-four months.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said candidates to play first until Hart returns include Alex Gonzalez, Hunter Morris, Bobby Crosby, Taylor Green and Sean Halton.

PHILLIPS - If more students went to school in their home area, school districts like Phillips would be in a much better financial place. Phillips stands to forgo more than $300,000 in state aid because of open enrollment.

The formal open enrollment window closed last week. About 80 students living in the district will likely attend school somewhere else next school year. Fewer than half of that number will come to Phillips by choice.

With how state funding is calculated, Phillips will lose about $6,600 per student that leaves.

PHILLIPS - Many times, a cat or dog in the home makes domestic violence situations even more complicated. The abuser may hurt the animal, or the victim might be reluctant to get out of the home while leaving the animal behind.

TimeOut of Price County serves victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. Its workers hear story after story of innocent pets being involved in abusive situations.

"(Victims say,) 'I see this happening to my pet constantly. My abuser has a bad day or we get into an argument and they take it out on my pet. I fear for my safety, I fear for my pet's safety,'" said Becky Steinbach, a Sexual Assault Program Coordinator at TimeOut in Phillips.
