HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Three men accused of stealing items from model homes, homes under construction and car dealerships are set to face a judge Thursday.

Watch Jon Pardi Channel Roy Rogers in New Cowboy Video

Jon Pardi’s 2014 debut album, Write You a Song, yielded four singles including the Top Ten “Up All Night.” But the traditionally leaning singer-songwriter, who’s currently in the studio working on the follow-up, held back a few songs from that project. Now, to fill the gap between LPs, Pardi has released the tunes as a digital EP, The B-Sides, 2011-2014.

The half-dozen previously unavailable tracks, all co-written and co-produced by Pardi, have become staples of the performer’s live show. One of them, “Back on the Backroads,” is now Pardi’s latest video. A summer-focused clip replete with a pickup truck, field party and an overweight shirtless dude in a cowboy hat doing some “dancing,” the video is anchored by scenes of Pardi — in black-and-white —dressed as a cinematic cowboy, riding a horse and strumming his guitar.

It’s an interesting juxtaposition, much like the song itself, which freshens up the occasionally shopworn backroads lifestyle by marrying it with honest-to-goodness country instruments. A California native, Pardi has never been one to shy away from steel guitars and twang. As such, he’s found himself aligned with some of the genre’s most “country” artists, including Alan Jackson, who enlisted him for his recent Keepin’ It Country 25th Anniversary Tour.

While that trek came to a close earlier this month at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, Pardi will stay on the road with his own tour throughout the summer, along with appearances at festivals like New York City’s FarmBorough and Delaware’s Big Barrel.

Seeking her 20th career Grand Slam title, and a third here at Roland Garros, Williams dropped her serve four times in her first ever match against Friedsam, ranked 105th.

How I Broke Out of My Social Comfort Zone by Saying Yes to Everything

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been predisposed to saying “no” to social plans. If something isn’t within my comfort zone, I tend to avoid it. But there’s a problem: when you don’t experience new things, life can get boring. Mine had recently landed somewhere between extreme doldrums and “what’s it even matter what day of the week it is?”

Jon Lester Sets MLB Record by Starting Career 0-for-58 at the Plate

The Chicago Cubs’ Jon Lester may be one of the best pitchers in baseball, but his swing could use some work.

In the second inning of Wednesday’s game against the Washington Nationals, Lester found himself entering the MLB record books for an unwanted reason. His flyout to deep center put him at 0-for-58 at the plate in 10 seasons, the most at-bats any player has ever gone without getting a hit to start a career.

Lester’s strikeout in his second at-bat of the night tied him with Joey Hamilton for the most plate appearances (66) without a hit to start a career, per Wall Street Journal Sports.

The 31-year-old has a career slash line of .000/.016/.000.

Lester, of course, spent his first nine seasons in the American League. Interleague play was the only time he ever had to bat. In his first year in the National League, he has gone 0-for-23.

It was a tough overall day for Lester. The southpaw took the loss, despite allowing just two runs (one earned) in seven innings of work.


Greece, facing euro zone exit fears, designs new two-euro coin

Greece, beset by fears its economic troubles could force it out of the 19-member euro zone, has won a competition to design the logo of a commemorative two-euro coin. The design by George Stamatopoulos, an engraver at the Greek central bank, depicts 12 people forming a human chain around the European Union flag – 12 gold stars on a blue background – marking its 30th anniversary. More than 100,000 people across the euro zone voted in the online competition, where Stamatopoulos’s design was among the five pre-selected by a jury, alongside Spain, Slovenia, Italy and Cyprus.
