The Denver Broncos have signed free agent punter Marquette King to a three-year contract, the team announced on Thursday.
AFC West rival Oakland released King on March 30, parting ways with the popular and productive punter, whose social media presence was just as large as his punts were booming. While the Raiders did not offer a reason for cutting King, there were whispers that new head coach Jon Gruden’s old-school ways might not have jibed with King’s larger-than-life personality, especially for a punter.
King, 29, originally signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and the team signed him to a five-year, $16.5 million contract extension in 2016.
Last season, Pro Football Focus ranked him third among all punters, and he finished third in the NFL in net punting average at 42.7 yards.
Since 2013, when he took over for Shane Lechler in Oakland, King is second in the league in that time frame in total punts (426), eighth in gross average (46.8 yards), eighth in net average (40.8), third in punts inside the 20-yard line (168) and first in punts inside the 10-yard line (65).

The father-daughter dental team of Kaban Dental Group is serving up smiles and laughs at their family-owned business in San Juan Capistrano.
Lawrence Kaban, who jokingly calls his family’s practice a “necessary evil,” has been practicing out of the San Juan Capistrano office since 2004. Lawrence took over the Kaban office in 2004 from his also-dentist brother, Gerald, who decided to go back into the Air Force after opening the office on Paseo Adelanto in 1989.
The duo, father Lawrence Kaban, 69, and daughter Kelly Kaban, 30, have been working together since 2017 since Kelly finished dental school.

“Patients really like (the duo) because we joke around a lot and my dad likes telling stories,” Kelly said. “They come for the company and catching up. We work well together, I’m coming out of school with new things I’ve learned and (my father) has all of the experience. It’s a good combination.”
The dentist family’s roots started when Gerald and Lawrence went to Loma Linda for dental schooling, years before Kelly’s graduation also from Loma Linda in 2017. Since her father was an alumnus, Lawrence was able to hand Kelly the diploma and he also facilitated her first job in dentistry.
Kelly, who studied molecular environmental biology at the University of California-Berkeley, said the switch to dentistry has been great so far because of relationships created with patients. Some patients—which include prominent San Juan Capistrano families of multiple generations—date back to when Gerald first opened Kaban Dental Group nearly 30 years ago.
“We spend a lot of time with our patients,” Lawrence said. “They become family friends.”
In addition to creating a positive, good-humored environment—which Lawrence and Kelly agree can reduce anxiety of their patients, especially those who are fearful of dentistry work—every couple of months, the father-daughter team does free clinic dentistry work in Santa Ana for low-income patients.

INDYPULSEParents who kiss children on lips before baby teeth develop may spread harmful bacteria, dentist argues
A dentist has advised that parents should refrain from kissing their children on the lips, particularly before their baby teeth have developed, as they could spread harmful bacteria to their young ones.
The debate over whether it’s appropriate for parents to kiss their children on the lips is a constant source of conversation.
While many argue that there’s nothing wrong with parents showing their affection in this manner, there are supposedly certain health risks that parents need to become more aware of.

Baby teeth are particularly susceptible to infection, as they don’t have the strength to withstand the damaging effect of bacteria.
“Baby teeth have a different type of enamel and dentine to adult teeth,” Dr Richard Marques, celebrity dentist at Wimpole Street Dental in London, explained to The Independent.
“The enamel is much thinner on baby teeth. It is not as strong as adult enamel so is more likely to decay.”
The transfer of saliva between individuals can always increase the likelihood of spreading illness.
However, parents need to be especially wary with their young children.
“Saliva transfer from parent to child is a risk as this can spread bacteria (such as streptococcus mutans) from adult to child,” said Dr Marques.
“This bacteria can cause decay of baby teeth.
“It can even affect the soft tissues and gums before the baby teeth have developed!”
There are a variety of afflictions that can be spread from mouth-mouth contact, including the cold or flu and viruses such as cold sores, which are caused by the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1).
Dr Marques suggests that parents refrain from sharing cutlery with their children, blowing on their food or kissing them on the lips.
There are a number of things parents can do to ensure the optimal dental health of their children.
These include not keeping all of your toothbrushes in one container, making sure your child doesn’t swallow the toothpaste, reducing their sugar intake and taking them for regular dentists checks.
“Take your child to the dentist regularly (they can go to the dentist as early as six months when the first tooth comes through),” Dr Marques advised.
“By age two to three they should be attending the dentist every six months to check for cavities (and check how well their teeth are developing!).
“Prevention is the key. We would rather help children to not get cavities in the first place!"
Feb. 19 (UPI) — A man attempting to pet a moose on a Colorado road ended up getting only a scare when the large animal charged at him.
Amanda Danielson recorded video Thursday on a street in Frisco when a man claimed he pets moose all the time and attempted to demonstrate with a nearby animal.
The video shows the man creeping closer to the moose until the animal turns its attention toward him.
The moose charges at the man, but turns away before making contact. The moose’s reaction appears to be enough to convince the man to abandon his plans.
Patrick Casey enjoys walking his dog Arya enjoy walking in the freshly falling snow along Canyon Blvd on Jan. 21, 2018 in Boulder.
Saturday is expected to be a cold day as snow falls on and off in the metro Denver area, potentially dropping up to 2 to 3 inches throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service.
The day’s high is only expected to reach the low 20s, cooling down to around 10 degrees at night, NWS meteorologist Natalie Sullivan said. Some freezing drizzle has been reported.
The snow is expected to pass through the metro Denver area and into southcentral Colorado through the afternoon, moving out at night, she said.
The Denver International Airport, which started seeing trace amounts of snow at midnight, said significant flight impacts aren’t expected but warned passengers to check their flight status as low visibility or shifting winds could cause delays.
Snow teams are ready for expected light snowfall during the morning and afternoon. Check your flight status as the weather moves in. While significant flight impacts aren’t expected, delays due to low visibility or shifting winds are always possible.
The mountains are expecting 3 to 5 inches of snow, although some parts could get up to 8 inches, Sullivan said.
Heavy traffic has been delaying travel times from Denver to the Eisenhower tunnel, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Traction law is in place on eastbound I-70 between Vail and Copper Mountain.
So far, the metro area has seen 6.4 inches of snow this season, slightly below the 7 inches that normally drop by now, Sullivan said. Despite a burst of January snow, the South Platte River basin is still 93 percent of normal snowpack after a dry end to 2017.
The video gives a behind-the-scenes look into the daily rhythms of Dr. Simmons’ life in Southeast Texas
CARROLLTON, Texas, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — This week, MB2 Dental Solutions released the newest addition to the "We Are Dentistry" video series featuring Dr. Matthew Simmons, owner of El Campo Dentistry in Southeast Texas.

"Dr. Simmons is a proficient and caring provider to his patients and their families. He and his wife bring a genuine and joyful energy everywhere they go."
In the video, Dr. Simmons confides that he used to be very shy growing up, so as a dentist he relates to and empathizes with his patients who may feel the initial discomfort of walking into a new environment. He enjoys getting to know his patients and setting them at ease by providing quality care.
"What I love about dentistry, and I’ll be honest, is what it provides my life to be. It’s provided me an avenue to owning my own house, provided me the sense of being proud of myself and it allows me to meet a plethora of different people."

The faith-based nonprofit is planning to host a grand opening with guided tours of recent changes at the continuing care retirement community in Upper Allen Township. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Messiah Lifeways started the expansion, known as Project Envision, at Messiah Village in the fall of 2015 to better meet the "changing needs of future generations and their families." It’s the first phase of a 20-year campus expansion and improvement effort at Messiah Village.
The largest component of the project is Village Square, a sprawling building with 84 apartments, wellness and enrichment centers, a campus day spa, welcome center and two new dining options for residents. The new restaurants are called Kathryn’s on the Square and Cafe 100.
To make way for Village Square, 16 old cottages were demolished.
A personal care apartment building called Hopewell, also part of the recent expansion, adds 26 additional apartments to the campus. That project also includes outdoor spaces and a dining room, plus easy access to Village Square via a connecting bridge.
Last summer, Messiah Lifeways opened two new skilled nursing buildings, Greenwood and Engle, that each house 16 residents. The two buildings feature private suites, a growing trend among long-term care facilities.
Messiah Lifeways served nearly 3,000 people last year through its wellness and enrichment services. About 750 people live at Messiah Village.
