Furtado doing well in Clinton
Micah Furtado, a 1999 graduate of Kapa‘a High School and the 2003 20th round draft pick of the Texas Rangers led the Clinton (Iowa) Lumber Kings to split a four-game series with South Bend over the weekend.
Furtado was recently acknowledged for leading the Arizona Instructional League in on-base percentage (.446), finished third in walks, and fourth in stolen bases and runs scored.
His effort paid off with an advancement to the Rangers’ Class “A” Midwest League affiliate where he is currently the starting secondbaseman for the Lumber Kings.
Furtado, who stands 5’7,” recently recovered from a rotator cuff injury and leads the Kings with a .329 batting average in 23 games.
With the split, Furtado will be heading to Lansing, Michigan.

Taser used to subdue Jaguar Chris Naeole
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Police used a Taser to subdue Jacksonville Jaguars guard Chris Naeole before arresting him on a charge of disorderly conduct.
Naeole, 29, got into a shoving match with employees of the Ritz Bar in Jacksonville Beach as the bar was closing early Sunday, according to a police report. Despite a police officer’s order to stop, Naeole lunged again at an employee, and the officer used the Taser, the report said.
Naeole, who is 6-foot-3 and about 320 pounds, was taken to the Duval County jail, and later released, a jail official said.
Naeole was a first-round draft choice in 1997.
