All eyes on Fernando Alonso; Monday's Indianapolis 500 field is wide open
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - One of IndyCar's all-time greats will lead the field to green at the Indianapolis 500.

All eyes, though, will be one row behind Scott Dixon as Fernando Alonso makes his debut in "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Alonso has never raced on an oval before, never raced an Indy car and hasn't done a rolling start in 20 years - and that was in a go-kart.

Hisey gets 31 years; 9 years suspended in scrapyard theft case
Penny K. Hisey, who was found guilty of swindling more than $800,000 from Rochester Iron and Metal over a three-year period, was led out of Fulton Superior Court in handcuffs Wednesday.

Fulton Superior Judge Wayne Steele handed Hisey a sentence of 31 years, with nine suspended, and five years probation. Hisey was also ordered to pay $949,413.85 in restitution to the local scrapyard, from which she was fired in early 2015 after company officials discovered she was stealing cash and producing fraudulent payout tickets to cover her tracks.
