The New York Mets are in sole possession of first place in the National League East for the first time this late in a season since Sept. 19, 2008.  The Mets are one game ahead of Washington after newcomer Yoenis Cespedes, rookie Michael Conforto and 42-year-old Bartolo Colon led them to a 12-1 rout of the Marlins in Miami.  Cespedes was 3-5 with a pair of two-run doubles after Conforto drilled his first major league homer, a three-run blast in the second inning. 

Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle for the third time in his career, doing it by the fifth inning of the Texas Rangers' 12-9 win over Houston.  Beltre collected a two-run triple in the first inning, a double in the second and a single in the third before going deep against the American League West leaders.  The Elias Sports Bureau says Beltre is the fourth player in major league history with three cycles, and the first since Babe Herman notched his third in 1933. 

The fiancée of imprisoned ex-New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has petitioned a Rhode Island court to add the surname Hernandez to her name, matching their daughter's name.  The Providence Journal says Shayanna Jenkins appeared Monday in North Providence Probate Court seeking to change her surname to Jenkins-Hernandez.  A judge says the daughter's name is Avielle Jenkins-Hernandez.  The judge says she needs more information before granting Jenkins' request.  He's serving a life sentence in Massachusetts for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins' sister.  A prisons spokesman tells The Associated Press there's no record Hernandez has gotten married or requested to get married.

News Briefs:

The financial situation of a Norfolk city councilman was discussed at a special sub-committee meeting following Monday night’s regular council meeting. City Administrator Shane Weidner says 2nd Ward Councilman Dave Fauss requested the meeting to discuss the $218,000 in liens filed against him by the Internal Revenue Service for unpaid taxes, fines and interest. The meeting was not open to the public. About an hour before the meeting, Mayor Sue Fuchtman issued a written statement to clarify any involvement of herself or other council members in Fauss’s business. Fuchtman says she has never been a stockholder in Barnstormers, nor has any other current council member except for Fauss. Some past members of the Council are stockholders in the business, as are four members of the elected Airport Authority board. Barnstormers is located in the former airport terminal building and is considered a tenant of the Airport Authority. In recent months, a dispute has arisen concerning the restaurant’s past due electric bill. Fauss is making monthly payments on the past due amount, as well as paying current charges on time.  

The Norfolk City Council accepted a draft document Monday night that takes a step toward closing Nebraska Ave. on the south side of Johnson Park. On a 7-1 vote, the Council adopted a National Environmental Policy Act Categorical Exclusion for the North Fork Riverfront Trail project. The document, which must be reviewed by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Federal Highway Commission, calls for closing of Nebraska Avenue between 1st and Oak streets for the trail project. 

The superintendent of the Battle Creek Public Schools is the new Board of Control chairman for the Nebraska School Activities Association. Jay Bellar has been a member of the board for nine years, and became chairman Saturday. Among the tasks Bellar will oversee in his year as chairman is the search for a new executive director of the NSAA. Rhonda Blanford-Green resigned in June. 

President Barack Obama's effort to cut greenhouse gases from U.S. power plants is drawing praise from a leading Nebraska environmental group, but an Omaha-based think tank is urging state officials to fight the plan. The group Bold Nebraska on Monday hailed the federal Clean Power Plan as a "flexible, common-sense rule" that will reduce carbon pollution. The Platte Institute for Economic Research argued that the plan would hurt the state economy without having much direct impact on global climate emissions. 

Norfolk has some beautifully landscaped yards and the Norfolk Tree Advisory Board is looking to honor two of those yards later on this year with the Green Leaf Awards. You can nominate yards for either the residential or corporate Green Leaf awards, by emailing a picture and notes about the nominee to CityOfNorfolk@Gmail.com

The seventh annual celebration of National Night Out is planned tonight from 6 to 8 in Norfolk’s Central Park.  Police Captain Don Miller says about 40 businesses and organizations will provide information, games and prizes for children and families. Law enforcement and first responders will demonstrate their skills and equipment. All activities are free.
