  • <b><i>Triple-take...<br></b></i>
Two sets of triplets ran in this year’s Canyonlands Half Marathon and Five Mile Run on Saturday.

Each of the Axen triplets lives in a different state — Rhode Island, Colorado and Utah — and they met in Moab to spend time together and have fun at a race, they said Saturday. The entire Ames family from Idaho participated in the half-marathon, including triplets (above right photo) Trevor, Conner and Mckinley Ames. Trevor Ames finished the race in 1:59:15, Connor crossed the finish line in 2:15:19, and Mckinley at 3:08:27, according to official race results.

    Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez looks back at the gallery during his murder trial at the Bristol County Superior Court in Fall RiverBy Daniel Lovering FALL RIVER, Mass. (Reuters) - Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez's fiancee said on Friday that he told her he did not murder the man he is charged with fatally shooting at an industrial park near their Massachusetts home in June 2013. Shayanna Jenkins, 25, who was granted immunity after charges she initially lied to a grand jury investigating the case, told the judge and lawyers during a session without the jury present that she had spoken with Hernandez after she found out about the murder of semiprofessional football player Odin Lloyd. "He said 'no.'" Hernandez, a former New England Patriots tight end, is on trial for fatally shooting Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins' sister, Shaneah. Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty, faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted.

    (Reuters) - Labor leaders said on Thursday they had reached an agreement with developers of a proposed Los Angeles-area stadium project, which is backed by the billionaire owner of the St. Louis Rams, that could become home for an NFL team. The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor said in a statement it was excited about the 80,000-seat stadium project proposed for suburban Inglewood, now that its member unions have reached the jobs agreement. "The promise of good jobs - both for the project's construction and for ongoing operations - is now a guarantee," LA County Federation of Labor Executive Secretary Rusty Hicks said in a statement. The Inglewood City Council has unanimously approved the stadium, which includes Rams owner Stan Kroenke as a developer.

    Lee Mi-Rim of South Korea, seen in action during a golf tournament in Incheon, on October 17, 2014South Korea's Lee Mi-Rim had seven birdies without a bogey in a seven-under par 65 to take a one-shot lead in the LPGA Kia Classic. Lee, who missed the course record at Aviara Golf Club by one stroke, on Thursday birdied all four of the par-five holes, taking the lead with an eight-foot birdie putt at her 14th hole of the day -- the par-five fifth and adding one more birdie at the eighth. "My long game didn't feel good, my swing didn't feel good, but I made a lot of putts," said Lee, winner of two LPGA titles last year who had a one-stroke lead over former world number one Tseng Ya-ni of Taiwan. Tseng, chasing her first LPGA victory since a 2012 win in nearby La Costa, capped her 66 with a four-foot birdie at 18.
