    ENSTONE, England (AP) — The Alpine Formula One team said Thursday that Marcin Budkowski has left his role as executive director. A team statement said Laurent Rossi will take temporary charge “to allow everyone to focus on the next season’s preparation.” The 2022 season begins in Bahrain on March 20.

Alonso finished third at the Qatar GP in November with Ocon in fifth place for a strong haul of 25 points. “I truly enjoyed being part of the leadership team of Renault then Alpine F1 Team, working with such a talented and dedicated group of people,” Budkowski said. “I will be watching the team’s progress fondly in the seasons to come.” It was not immediately clear what Budkowski will do next, but...

    Ran Carthon had been preparing to be an NFL general manager decades before he even got involved with an NFL team. As a kid growing up, Carthon would talk with his NFL playing dad, Maurice, about the talent level of various players around the league, and took a big interest each year in the draft. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I’ve always just been a fan of the draft, especially when I was younger," Carthon said. "I used to record every draft and buy all the draft magazines and follow along. I didn’t realize what I was doing at the time. I was just more so trying to predict which team was going to take which player." Carthon has come a long way from those days as a precocious draftnik, having a successful college career as a running back in Florida to a brief stint in the NFL as Peyton Manning's teammate in Indianapolis to a post-playing career as a scout and personnel executive. Carthon is in his fifth season as director of player personnel with the...

    DENVER (AP) – A mining company has agreed to pay Colorado $1.6 million to resolve its liability for natural resource damage related to the 2015 Gold King Mine spill that fouled rivers in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The proposed consent decree with Sunnyside Gold Corp. follows Sunnyside settlements with New Mexico and the Navajo Nation earlier this year. (credit: CBS) Attorney General Phil Weiser’s office said Monday that a Denver federal court will decide whether to approve the decree after a 30-day public comment period. Sunnyside admits no fault in the agreement. Sunnyside’s parent, Kinross Gold Corp., didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Monday. Sunnyside operated a mine next to Gold King near Silverton that closed in 1991. A federal investigation found that bulkheads to plug that mine led to a buildup of water from Gold King containing heavy metals. A contractor for the Environmental Protection Agency inadvertently triggered the spill while attempting to mitigate the buildup. The area has since been declared a Superfund site. Weiser, Dan Gibbs, executive director of the Colorado Department of Natural...
    The executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in California is retiring at the end of the year, 12 years after he began in 2009. John Heubusch, the museum and library's executive director, was working as chief of staff to Rep. Denny Smith from 1981-88 during Reagan's time in office. When Nancy Reagan offered him the position at the library, he accepted, believing he could tell the former president's history to others, he said. Describing the Reagan library as "the right combination of education and entertainment," Heubusch said the location helps visitors learn about the former president with an experience that many of them do not expect. "No matter when you come here, you're just bowled over by the experience," Heubusch said. "It's above and beyond what people expect from a presidential library, and that's what makes it great." FOR SOME DEMOCRATS, EVEN REAGAN IS BETTER THAN BIDEN Upon entering the library, visitors are greeted by a 3D holograph of Reagan. The library also features Reagan's Air Force One, as well as...

    NFL players' union chief DeMaurice Smith wants to see more internal team emails to uncover the pervasiveness of racism around the league after Jon Gruden was caught using a racist trope to describe Smith in a 2011 email that surfaced last week. During a podcast interview with ESPN's Bomani Jones, the NFL Players Association executive director said he's interested in learning how league teams may use race or sexual identity to discriminate. 'Is there correspondence that suggests teams are making decisions about coaches based on the color of their skin?' Smith asked. 'Are they actively hostile to players that have chosen to self-identify in various ways? Are they denigrating of people based on sexual preference or religious identity?' Specifically, Smith wants to see the 650,000 emails that were included in the NFL's investigation into hostile workplace claims against the Washington Football Team. Gruden resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday after emails he sent to then-Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen between 2011 and 2018 surfaced showing him using racist, misogynistic and homophobic language to criticize...
