50 daily www.delphosherald.com BY LESLIE NOIA DHI Correspondent LIMA Healthcare has become an important issue in our state due to recent changes that have taken place, especially with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The League of Women Voters of the Lima Area (LWV) does their best to provide information and educate the public about important issues. On Thursday, LWV held a forum to discuss the important topic of healthcare and how it is affecting our communities. Healthcare is one of those things that we have heard a lot about from the political side but not really from anyone else, said Mary Wilkin, LWV board member. Wilkin said that holding the forum on healthcare allows professionals in the Lima area to share their perspective on the recent changes. A panel that consisted of two Lima physicians and two insurance agents were available for questions and to share their views on the current

League of Women Voters holds healthcare forum

Healthcare is one of those things that we have heard a lot about from the political side but not really from anyone else.
Mary Wilkin, LWV board membe healthcare plans. The panel has varied views of the U.S. healthcare system and how consumers can best navigate their way through the changing system. Lima physicians Dr. Susan Hubbell, a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation and a member of the Lima/Allen County Academy of Medicine, and Dr. Wilfred Ellis, infectious disease specialist and chair of the Rhodes State College Board of Trustees, attended to share their knowledge and add to the discussion at the forum. Both of the physicians have different views on the healthcare system. One is more conservative than the other, said Wilkin. She felt it was important to have the two different perspectives on the panel so people have a chance to see different sides. Wilkin also spoke about the importance of knowing insurance coverages and how it has changed. It depends on each individual, my employer for example has increased the wellness points I need to have in order to receive a discount on my premium, she said. The healthcare field has seen many changes, not only in regulations but technology too. We have been seeing a lot of changes in healthcare. For instance, medical records are now computerized, which is great because if you are in an accident and transferred to a hospital, they are able to get your records quickly. However, it can leave some people worried about who has access to their records, said Wilkins. Randee Henson, agent with Stolly Insurance of Lima, and Deborah Steele, statewide advocacy coordinator for the

Delphos, Ohio Universal Health Care Action Network of Ohio (UHCAN Ohio), also sat on the panel at the forum to share important information about the current plans. One insurance agent comes from a place where they see people on a regular basis, and the other deals with insurance on a national standpoint, said Wilkin. LWV holds many events throughout the year such as this one. They are part of a national, non-partisan organization founded in 1920 that encourages citizens to take an active and informed role in government. The LWV is a grassroots organization where its members are the decision-makers. It is considered political because Leagues take action on a wide variety of governmental issues on a national, state and local level. However, it is considered non-partisan because the organization does not support candidates or parties. The LWV only supports issues after a thorough study which concludes in an analysis of the results.

Relay meetings set Tuesday

Relay teams will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Delphos Eagles Lodge. The Committee meeting will follow at 7:30 p.m. The theme for the 2013 Relay has been set: Game On! Playing for a Cure. Each team will select a board game they want to use as their inspiration for decorating their site at Relay. Games will be selected at this meeting. Candyland has already been taken so teams should come prepared with a first- and second-choice game.


Old Paulding County Jail saved from demolition

BY ED GEBERT DHI Correspondent ate prisoners in the county from its opening in 1876 until 2007. Since that time, the building was used for storage. Finally it was agreed to sell the building if a legitimate bidder could be found, so when bids were opened in February there was hope in the air for preservationists. However of the four bid envelopes turned in at that time, none were deemed acceptable. It turned out that one envelope contained nothing but a blank sheet of paper. Next, the Paulding County Commissioners began the process of bidding once again, this time stipulating a March 20 opening date. According to an article from Melinda Krick on the Paulding Progress website, four bids were received with each listing a bid amount and the intended use of the property. The bid

PAULDING The 137-year-old former Paulding County Jail has been saved from the wrecking ball. On Wednesday, the Paulding County Commissioners accepted a bid for the sale of the historic building from All Trades Historical Restoration for $11,770. The life of the old jail building seemed to be up back in December when the commissioners announced that they were giving up on the structure, saying it was too expensive to maintain and could be a liability for the county. Plans were made to demolish the building in January. However, almost immediately, members of the community rallied to try to find a way to save the jail which was in use to incarcer-

from All Trades Historical Restoration, which was accepted on Wednesday, is to clean and repair the exterior and restore the building to its original appearance as best as possible, make the building the companys office headquarters, remodel cell area into apartments for new tenants along with housing their employees, and rent office space. In the event the bidder awarded does not close within 30 days, the building will be awarded to the second highest bidder, Rick Fortman of Defiance, for $7,777. Fortman wishes to use the jail for antiques and art, storing his personal collection as well as converting the jail into consignment booths for dealers of art and antiques. He would also restore the (TB File Photo) sheriffs residence.

WASHINGTON Democrats controlling the Senate appear on track to pass their first budget in four years, promising a second, almost $1 trillion round of tax increases on top of more than $600 billion in higher taxes on the wealthy enacted in January. The nonbinding but politically symbolic measure would protect safety-net programs for the poor and popular domestic priorities like education, health research and federal law enforcement agencies from cuts sought by House Republicans, who adopted a far more austere plan on Thursday morning. The Democratic plan caters to party stalwarts on the liberal edge of the spectrum just as the House GOP measure was crafted to appeal to more recent tea party arrivals. The $1 trillion in new revenue would accrue over the coming decade and would be coupled with a net $875 billion in spending cuts, generated by modest cuts to federal health care programs, domestic agencies and the Pentagon and reduced government borrowing costs. The GOP budget proposal, similar to previous plans offered by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., demonstrates that its possible, at least mathematically, to balance the budget within a decade without raising taxes. But to do so Ryan, his partys vice presidential nominee last year, assumes deep cuts that would force millions from programs for the poor like food stamps and Medicaid and cut almost 20 percent from domestic agency budget levels assumed less than two years ago. Ryans plan passed the House on a mostly party-line, 221207 vote, with 10 Republicans joining Democrats against it. Senators braced for dozens of votes during a marathon session expected today, with pessimists in the Capitol predicting a final vote on the Democratic plan in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday. That tall stack of votes follows up a quintet of politically freighted Senate tallies Thursday night, including a move by Democrats to force a vote on the controversial Ryan budget, which was rejected by a 59-40 vote, with five Republicans joining every Democrat in opposition. Republicans countered with a move by Jeff Session, R-Ala., putting Democrats on record in opposition to balancing the budget by the end of the decade. It failed on a near party-line vote. Indeed, Thursdays votes demonstrated the raw politics driving the budget debate, which is more a display of party positions and priorities than an attempt to move the combatants closer together.

Ohio unemployment rate remains at 7 percent

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS The Associated Press COLUMBUS While Ohios labor force is not growing at the preferred rate for an economic recovery, the number of unemployed people in the state is significantly lower than a year ago, the state said today as it announced monthly unemployment rates. Ohios seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February was 7 percent, unchanged from January, and well below the national rate of 7.7 percent.

COLUMBUS (AP) A bill setting in motion Gov. John Kasichs plan for a $1.5 billion Ohio Turnpike bond sale and increasing Ohios speed limit to 70 mph on rural interstate highways has cleared the state Legislature. The Ohio House passed the two-year transportation budget 63-28 on Thursday. Kasich is expected to sign it. The measure allots more than $2.5 billion for each of the two years, plus money from the bond sale. It guarantees 90 percent of Turnpike bond proceeds will go to northern Ohio projects. Toll rates would be capped on car trips by E-ZPass users of 30 miles or less for 10 years. It sets the maximum speed limit for interstate freeway outerbelts in urban areas at 65 mph and on freeways in congested areas at 55 mph. Kasich stated, Passage of our Jobs and Transportation Plan marks a great day for all Ohioans and the job creators who depend on our highway system to ship goods throughout our state. This Turnpike plan is big change for our state, and I applaud the General Assembly for being open to and ulti-

mately passing an innovative plan that will allow us to complete infrastructure projects faster, create 65,000 new construction jobs and help attract new job creators to Ohio. The transportation budget received support from both sides of the political aisle. Democrat Rep. Bill Patmon commented, I am proud to have been a joint sponsor for this very important piece of legislation. This legislation gives Ohio a unique opportunity to keep promises made by past administrations to improve roads, bridges, and highways. In other words, this gives Ohio a chance to let Ohio roads fix Ohio roads. As I said the day the Governor decided to go in the direction of bonding the Ohio Turnpike, it doesnt just make sense, it makes perfect sense. Republican Rep. Ross McGregor added, I am very pleased and fully supportive of the outcome of the State Transportation Budget. Great compromise went into this entire budget process, and as a result we have a strong piece of legislation that provides funds for our states critical infrastructure needs, increases economic development and creates thousands of jobs for Ohioans.

The states nonagricultural jobs increased 16,100 over the month, from a revised figure of 5.181 million in January to 5.197 million in February, according to the latest business establishment survey conducted by the See JOBS, page 3

The Celina Police Department and the Shelby County Ohio Sheriffs Office assisted with these apprehensions. CLEVELAND (AP) An Ohio man charged in the investigation into dozens of bomb threats made to courthouses and other public buildings in five states late last year waived a bond hearing Thursday and was ordered locked up. The FBI arrested 39-yearold Lonny Bristow of Mansfield on Wednesday in the Mansfield area. He had an initial court appearance Thursday in U.S. District Court in Cleveland and waived a bond hearing. Bristow agreed to be held without bond while his case is pending, his public defender, Carolyn Kucharski, said in an email. Bristow was initially charged with a single count of making a bomb threat by phone. The FBI said Bristow was arrested in the investigation of bomb threats made in November and December to courthouses and public buildings in Nebraska, Washington, Oregon, Tennessee and Mississippi. There was no immediate indication of a possible motive. An FBI agents affidavit filed with the court said investigators traced numerous bomb threats to prepaid phone cards

For The Record

Reid: Background checks will be in Senate gun bill

WASHINGTON (AP) Democrats who vowed a crackdown on guns after the horrific Newtown, Conn., school shooting are touting prospects for Senate passage of expanded federal background checks, even as they acknowledge there isnt enough support to restore a ban on assault-style weapons. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a measure likely to be debated in his chamber next month will include tougher laws and stiffer sentences for gun trafficking and increased school safety grants. Closing background check loopholes will be the core of the legislation, just as it was the cornerstone of President Barack Obamas proposals for stemming gun violence following the December slayings of 20 first-graders and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Including expanded checks in the gun legislation signals that Democrats feel they can win bipartisan support for the measure or are happy to dare Republicans to reject the entire gun-control package and face political consequences in next years elections.

Ohio boy charged with bringing knives to school

BARBERTON (AP) Authorities in northeast Ohio say there was no imminent threat when a boy brought two knives to school in a backpack. Police say the 15-yearold told officers and school administrators he planned to take over and do harm at the school at some point in the future. He has been charged with bringing a weapon onto school property, inciting vio-

purchased at a Wal-Mart in Upper Sandusky, located about 40 miles west of Mansfield. Agents searched Bristows residence and seized computers, bank cards, weapons and ammunition, the FBI said. The Mansfield News Journal reported that in 1997 Bristow was labeled a vexatious litigator. Since 1993, Bristow filed at least 137 lawsuits, targeting law enforcement personnel, judges, media outlets and others. Although the lawsuits were usually tossed out of court, they added up to thousands of dollars in attorney fees, the newspaper reported. The paper also reported that Bristow also was the first inmate in Ohio to have his mail privileges revoked. He received a 13-year prison sentence for theft, retaliation, aiding an escape, harassment by an inmate and telephone harassment. Stephen Anthony, head of the FBI in northern Ohio, said the bomb threats had induced panic for hundreds of people. He called the threats reckless and malicious. Kucharski limited her comments to detailing the initial court proceeding and wouldnt comment further.

would craft a bipartisan background check compromise. If not, he said, senators would consider a stricter version that allows fewer exemptions approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on a party-line vote. This moves the ball forward on gun safety in the Senate, said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., one of the senators hunting a background check deal. Schumer said he hoped an accord could be ready when the Senate returns from its upcoming two-week spring break. Moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who has an A-rating from the National Rifle Association, and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., are also involved. The background check system is aimed at preventing criminals and others from acquiring firearms. It currently applies only to sales by federally licensed gun dealers, not private transactions at gun shows or online. The fate of the overall legislation remains uncertain, with Democrats all but sure to need Republican support for it to survive. Action would then shift to the GOP-run House, where leaders have shown no taste for expanding background checks for private purchases. Earlier, Reid decided to exclude a proposed assault

weapons ban from the bill, fearing it would sink the legislation, but will allow a vote on the plan as an amendment. The bans sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., seems sure to lose due to opposition from Republicans and moderate Democrats. An Associated Press-GfK poll showed more than 8 in 10 people support broadening the background check requirement to gun shows. Other surveys show similar overwhelming support. Critics appeared unbowed. The NRA and others say criminals ignore background checks in getting guns illegally, and warn the expansion would lead to a federal registry of gun owners. We remain as committed as we have been to opposing gun bans, said Andrew Arulanandam, an NRA spokesman. He declined to comment on a potential compromise but said if the Senate considers Schumers version of background checks, we will do whatever we can to defeat it. The NRA wants Congress to fund more armed guards at schools, step up prosecutions of people who file false gun applications and increase the background check systems access to state records of people with mental and other problems.

They are charged with failure to report a crime, complicity to incite violence and aggravated riot.

Unemployment rate remains at 7 percent

COLUMBUS (AP) The latest monthly jobs data shows Ohios unemployment rate continuing to stay below the national figure. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services said today the states seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February was 7 percent, unchanged from January. January and February rates have marked the first time Ohios monthly unemployment rate failed to decline or at least remain steady since July 2011. The states leaders have said Ohios economy and its job market are getting stronger, though the process is slow. Ohios unemployment rate has remained about a percentage point below the U.S. rate, which was 7.7 percent in February.


Brown pushes to speed up bus safety changes

BY JOHN SEEWER The Associated Press TOLEDO A former Marine who admitted setting fire to an Ohio mosque because he wanted revenge for the killings of American troops overseas wont be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea, a judge ruled Thursday. Randy Linn had asked to take back his admission to hate crime charges in January, a month after he explained in detail how he drove from his Indiana home to the suburban Toledo mosque and burned a prayer rug, causing extensive damage in the building. Linn, 52, said he was in an emotional and depressed state when he pleaded guilty. His attorney asked the judge to throw out the plea so Linn could undergo a competency exam. U.S. District Judge Jack Zouhary rejected the request, saying there was nothing indicating Linn was a candidate for an insanity plea and that he clearly was competent when he pleaded guilty in December. Linn said at the time he decided to start the fire after seeing images of wounded soldiers in the news. Prosecutors maintained that Linn did not act on impulse and pointed out that he told his son two weeks before the fire that he wanted to burn down the mosque. In opposing the withdrawal, prosecutors noted that Linn drove two hours from his home in St. Joe, Ind., to the mosque and that he stopped on the way to fill three gas cans to start the

fire. Assistant U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan said Linn was asked at least four times before entering his guilty plea if he understood what he was doing. Hes just having second thoughts, she told the judge. A deal between prosecutors and Linn calls for him to receive a 20-year sentence. Hes scheduled to be sentenced next month. Prosecutors said Linn had several firearms in his car and carried a gun into The Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, which was empty at the time, before he started the fire on Sept. 30. Linn estimated at his plea hearing that he had drunk 45 beers over several hours before he decided to drive to Ohio. Maybe that helped explain his conduct, the judge said Thursday. Linns new attorney, John Thebes, did not attempt during the hearing to deny that Linn was responsible for the fire. Instead, he told the judge that a competency exam would allow him to determine whether an insanity plea was warranted. A sprinkler system extinguished the blaze, leaving smoke and water damage in much of the facility, whose golden dome is a landmark along Interstate 75 just south of Toledo. No one was hurt. Members of the Islamic center have been unable to use the building since the fire and hope that repairs will be finished sometime next month.


STRONGSVILLE (AP) A three-week strike by teachers in suburban Cleveland shows no sign that a settlement may be close. Strongsville Mayor Tom Perciak asked both sides to meet Friday but the school board rejected the overture from city hall. The school board tells The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer its waiting for a federal mediator to summon both sides to talk. In another sign of the divide between the two sides, the teacher union has sued to see school records on the hiring of substitute teachers and security guards during the strike. The strike over salary and working conditions involves close to 400 teachers and about 6,300 students.

Brown sent a letter this week to the head of the U.S. Department of Transportation asking to move more quickly on implementing driver training and operator enforcement. His push comes after last weekends bus crash involving a Pennsylvania colleges lacrosse team that killed two and injured 23. The Lima News reports that Brown said in the letter that tour bus safety standards are long overdue. Brown has been pushing for the bus safety law since 2007 when a charter bus carrying Bluffton Universitys baseball team flipped off a Georgia overpass, killing five players along with the driver and his wife.

Ohio marks 1913 flood Dems fail in attempt to centennial, warns of dangers get JobsOhio testimony
BY KANTELE FRANKO COLUMBUS (AP) State officials are using the 100th anniversary of a devastating and deadly flood to encourage Ohioans to prepare for potential high water emergencies by reviewing their response plans and insurance coverage. On the heels of the state and national Flood Safety Awareness Week, Saturday marks the centennial of the 1913 storms that rolled through the Midwest and hung over the Ohio Valley for several days, creating the states worst weather disaster. Several days of rain flooded all of Ohios rivers and streams and more than 35,000 homes and left at least 400 people dead in the state, or perhaps 600 by some estimates. It washed away or damaged docks, bridges, railroads and trains, wreaking havoc from Cincinnati to Portsmouth to Cleveland and hindering efforts to get aid to damaged areas. Levees broke, drenching various cities and leaving parts of Dayton and Columbus with 10 feet of water or more. The system, which led to significant flooding in more than a dozen states, from Illinois through Connecticut, stands out not just because of how much rain fell but also because it encompassed such a large geographic area, said Jamison, who studied the flood and found many Ohioans know little about it. Its really fascinating to think, How did the collective mindset really not remember this event? Its an answer I dont have, said Jamison, part of the Ohio (Continued from page 1) Department of Labor in cooperation with Job and Family Services. Ohios labor force is barely growing in contrast to what economists hope to see during a recovery, Job and Family Services spokesman Ben Johnson said today. Economists expect the labor force to shrink during a recession as people become frustrated and stop looking for work or decide to go back to school or take early retirement or do something that takes them out of the labor force temporarily, Johnson said. As the economy recovers, you expect those people to leave school, maybe to look for work again, different than whatever theyve been doing previously, and you expect the labor force to begin to grow again, Johnson said. That hasnt really happened. The good news is that the number of unemployed Ohio workers in January 401,000, though slightly up from January has decreased by 30,000 during the past 12 months, Johnson said. A spokesman for Gov.

COLUMBUS (AP) An Ohio health insurance company dropped its lawsuit Thursday against state and federal officials over confusion in rules for a program for patients with preexisting medical conditions. At issue is a high-risk insurance pool created by President Barack Obamas health care law targeting patients turned away by insurance companies because of such conditions as cancer or heart disease. The pool is meant to act as a temporary patch until 2014, when the federal law will require insurers to accept all applicants, regardless of medical history. Medical Mutual of Ohio sued last year in federal court to force clarification over who has the final say in eligibility for enrollment in the program state or federal officials. The company said it was getting conflicting opinions from government agencies that regulate it and needed the court to settle the issue. An attorney at Medical Mutual said the lawsuit was dropped after the company reached an agreement Wednesday with state and federal officials for handling eligibility and appeal decisions. David Fogarty, who also is the director of regulatory relations at Medical Mutual, said the parties have agreed that the Ohio Department of Insurance will have the final say in appeals regarding eligibility determinations, after the insurer has followed U.S. Department of Health and Human Services criteria. We were just looking for clear rules to follow and now we have them, Fogarty said in an interview Thursday. Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who is the states insurance director, said in a statement, I am pleased that the agreement we have reached protects Ohio consumers while upholding the Departments ability to make determinations on these issues without federal interference. Messages seeking comment also were left with the Health and Human Services Department.

Department of Commerce. Their request was rejected Thursday by the committees Republican chairman, who said Driehaus motion to subpoena JobsOhio was out of order. Democrats on the budget-writing panel objected to the chairmans ruling, resulting in a party-line vote to deny the motion. JobsOhio complied Tuesday with a state auditors order to turn over its private financial records, and then it returned $1 million in taxpayer start-up money.

CINCINNATI (AP) A lawyer representing motorists ticketed for speeding as a result of a villages traffic cameras wants the southwest Ohio village found in contempt for allegedly continuing to issue the tickets after a judge said to stop. Attorney Mike Allen filed the motion against the village of Elmwood Place on Wednesday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. Allen also asked for class action status for the original complaint by motorists trying to get their money back from tickets they have already paid. The judge ruled this month that the village must stop using the cameras he called a scam. The cameras have generated more than $1 million for the village, which is appealing the judges ruling. Village officials did not immediately return a call Thursday seeking comment on the latest filings.

Heres a tough question for American pastors: If local school officials voted to limit the freedom of Muslim students to publicly practice their faith, would you urge your flock to protest? Those who believe in religious liberty must answer yes, according to the Rev. Rick Warren, leader of the 20,000-member Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif. If a school district tells me that a Muslim girl cant wear a headscarf to school, Im going to oppose that rule, he said, during a recent forum held by the Religious Freedom Project of the Berkley Center For Religion, Peace and World Affairs at Georgetown University. If they say she cant wear a headscarf to school, he said, then tomorrow theyre going to say that I cant wear a cross and carry a Bible. This raises another question: If the leader of one of Americas most prominent megachurches headed to the barricades to defend the rights of Muslims, would the press coverage say that he is taking a liberal or a conservative stand? Then, would Warren receive the same label if he protested in support of a local Christian colleges rejection of the Health and Human Services mandate requiring most religious institutions to offer healthinsurance plans that cover all FDA-ap-

proved forms of contraception, sterilizations and morning-after pills? Both protests would be in support of freedom of religion. The worst thing that could happen in public discourse today, Warren said, would be for the term religious liberty to become a code word for one side or the other, for liberals or conservatives, or Republicans or Democrats. ... That would be a fatal mistake for the party that didnt support the first freedom of this country. Recent American debates about religious liberty have centered on whether the White House or any other branch of the government can decree that freedom of worship is more worthy of protection than the free exercise of religious freedom, a much broader constitutional concept. While the HHS disputes will almost certainly reach the U.S. Supreme Court, the organizers of the Georgetown forum

dedicated just as much attention to limitations on religious freedom worldwide, a trend being documented in annual reports by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. The most recent survey noted: Because some of the most restrictive countries are very populous, three-quarters of the worlds approximately 7 billion people live in countries with high government restrictions on religion or high social hostilities involving religion, up from 70 percent a year earlier. ... The rising tide of restrictions ... is attributable to a variety of factors, including increases in crimes, malicious acts and violence motivated by religious hatred or bias, as well as increased government interference with worship or other religious practices. The bottom line is that religious liberty is important for believers and unbelievers alike, and is linked to the success of any state or government, said Thomas Farr, director of the Berkley Center. Studies indicate that religious liberty promotes economic development, womens rights, political stability and improved care of the poor and the vulnerable. But severe restrictions on religious freedom, especially for religious minorities, are increasing and not just in the developing world, he said.

Christians are the most likely victims and Muslims come in a close second. While most of the persecution takes place outside the West, neither Europeans nor Americans can afford to be complacent, said Farr. Social hostility toward religion is rising faster in Europe than any other region of the world. And here in America, where religious liberty has long been considered the first freedom of our constitution and our history, both social hostility and government restrictions on religion are on the rise. For Warren, the key is for Americans to be willing to stand up for the rights of others, even those whose religious beliefs they believe are eternally in error. Many American Christians need to repent because they have failed to display that kind of true tolerance, he said. God gave us the freedom to chose. ... We make moral choices, he noted. God gives me the freedom to choose what I believe. God doesnt even force me to love him -- he gives me the choice to love him or reject him. He gives me the choice to obey him or to disobey him. If God gives me that choice, then I owe you that choice and you owe me that choice.

Nuggets beat 76ers 101-100 for 14th straight win

By ARNIE STAPLETON The Associated Press DENVER Down five points with less than 10 seconds left, Corey Brewer figured this was the end of the Denver Nuggets longest streak since joining the NBA in 1976. To be honest, I didnt think we had any chance of winning, Brewer said after lifting Denver to a 101100 win its 14th straight overall over the stunned Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night. Brewer sank a 3-pointer with 9.2 seconds left, quickly fouled Evan Turner a 75-percent free-throw shooter who missed both of his foul shots with 7.1 seconds remaining and then sank three free throws with 2.1 seconds left after drawing the whistle on Damien Wilkins. Fellow reserve Anthony Randolph, playing because Wilson Chandler was out with a dislocated left shoulder, blocked Wilkins desperation jumper at the buzzer to secure Denvers 14th straight win overall and 16th straight at the Pepsi Center. Its not quite the 24-game run the Miami Heat are on but its still plenty impressive. With Ty Lawson also out, Andre Miller took over at the point and got winded pretty quickly. The Nuggets, overlooked in the great surge by the Heat, played their ugliest game

By LYNN DeBRUIN The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY Some people may have heard of the school thats suddenly generating a bit of March Madness buzz. Harvard. Yep, Harvard the school known for producing U.S. presidents, Supreme Court justices and Nobel Prize winners earned its first NCAA tournament victory Thursday night with a 68-62 upset of No. 3 seed New Mexico. Wesley Saunders scored 18 points and Laurent Rivard made five 3-pointers to give 14thseeded Harvard (20-9) its first tournament victory in only three measly trips. Its unbelievable, guard Christian Webster said. Were still in disbelief. This is as good as it gets for us right now. He had no doubt the scene at Harvard Square was as crazy as the one inside the Crimson locker room, where noise from Harvards postgame celebration carried down through the concourse. The Crimson put the clamps on New Mexicos Tony Snell, holding him to nine points on 4-of-12 shooting after he dominated in the Mountain West Conference tournament. They banged inside with Lobos big men Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk, whose 22 points provided New Mexicos only consistent offense. Mostly, they showed none of the jitters that marked their trip to the tournament last year, a 79-70 loss to Vanderbilt in the Crimsons first NCAA appearance since 1946. Rivard went 6-of-7 from 3-point range in that one played on New Mexicos home court in The Pit and was clearly pumped for an encore against the Lobos themselves. He was 5-of-9 this time, with three coming in the first half, while Harvard was holding a small lead and, more importantly, answering every surge the Lobos (29-6) could muster. Rivard finished with 17 points. Next up for Harvard: a meeting with sixth-seeded Arizona. In the other part of the West Region bracket, top-seeded Gonzaga got a scare from Southern before pulling out a 64-58 victory. The Zags will play No. 9 Wichita State, 73-55 winners over Pitt. Gonzaga barely escaped to keep No. 1 seeds undefeated against No. 16s since the NCAA tournament field expanded to 64 teams in 1985. That doesnt mean it was easy for the Zags, who ran into a No. 16 seed that wasnt playing like one. Kelly Olynyk scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half to help the Zags (32-2) advance. Gonzaga iced the game with a pair of 3-pointers one by Gary Bell Jr., the next by Kevin Pangos that gave the Bulldogs their small cushion after Southern tied things at 56 with 3:45 left. Gonzaga coach Mark Few was almost ready to jump on the Southern bandwagon. Everyone was so moved by their effort, their resilience, their confidence, Few said. If I wasnt coaching on the other sideline, theyd be a tough team not to root for. Derick Beltran made life particularly difficult on the West Coast Conference champions. He scored 21 points and blocked eight shots, while Southern made 10 3-pointers on the night. Gonzagas next opponent slowly pulled away from Pitt, ending the Panthers season at 24-9. Wichita States Tekele Cotton did such a good job shutting down Pitts leading scorer, Tray Woodall, that Woodall was in tears after the game. He managed only two points while the Shockers guard came up with five steals and a key 3-point basket.

Tourney upset of the day: Harvard ousts New Mexico

Its unbelievable. Were still in disbelief. This is as good as it gets for us right now.
- Harvard guard Christian Webster
At the news conference after the game, Woodall broke down and had to be comforted by teammate Dante Taylor, who wrapped an arm around his teammates shoulder. Its a bitter taste in my mouth to end my career with one of the worst games Ive ever played, said Woodall, who came into the game averaging 11.8 points. Im sorry. I let my team down. Cotton, a 6-2 sophomore, hit his 3-pointer to start as 12-4 run and added a fast-break dunk to put the Shockers ahead 45-35 with 10:31 remaining. Woodall finished just 1-of-12 from the field, 0-of-5 from 3-point range. The game was a physical one, with players receiving an occasional elbow in the mouth or to the head. M a l c o l m Armstead led Wichita State (278) with 22 points. Cleanthony Early added 21 and Carl Hall had 11. Freshman Steven Adams led Pitt with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Harvards next opponent, Arizona, beat 11th-seeded Belmont 81-64. Arizona (26-7) had been knocked out of the Pac-12 Conference tournament by one Bruins team UCLA and these Bruins, from Nashville, Tenn., were a trendy pick to upset Sean Millers sixth-seeded Wildcats in the NCAAs. Instead, the Wildcats made a believer out of Belmont coach Rick Byrd. Mark Lyons scored 23 points and Arizona used its size to dominate from start to finish. I was more impressed with the team I saw tonight than I was scouting them, Byrd acknowledged afterward. I thought they were more engaged and focused and I think if they play that way, they can beat a lot of people. The thought was almost enough to wipe the smile from Crimson coach Tommy Amaker after Harvards big win. Off the top of my head, I cant imagine any team being more talented than they are, Amaker said of Arizona. Im not sure they have any weaknesses based on size, the bodies they can play up front, the guards and their quickness, making plays off the dribble. The Wildcats held a 44-18 edge on the boards, outscored Belmont 36-18 in the paint, blocked five shots and outshot the Bruins from 3-point range. Arizona made 9-of-17 3-pointers and shot 57 percent overall. Solomon Hill ended up making as many 3s as Ian Clark, who entered the game shooting better than 46 percent for Belmont but was 3-of-8 from beyond the arc.
pass at midcourt to set off a celebration among players and Golden Eagles fans at Rupp Arena. Blue scored seven of Marquettes final 11 points to finish with 16. Wilson added 14 points as the Golden Eagles (24-8) won for the fifth time in six games and advanced to face Butler in Saturdays third round. Jake Cohens 20 points led Davidson (26-8), which had a 49-40 advantage with 6 1/2 minutes left. BUTLER 68, BUCKNELL 56 LEXINGTON, Ky. Andrew Smith had 14 points and a career-high 16 rebounds, Roosevelt Jones also scored 14 and sixth-seeded Butler made its free throws down the stretch to hold off Bucknell. After trailing for most of the game, 11th-seeded Bucknell got back into it with a 19-2 second-half run. But after Joe Willmans jumper cut Butlers lead to 43-42 with 6:56 left, the Bison (28-6) went almost five minutes without scoring. Butler went 18-of-20 at the line in the last 4:43. Willman scored a career-high 20 points for Bucknell but the Bison couldnt overcome an off day by 2-time Patriot League Player of the Year Mike Muscala. Bucknells career scoring leader had nine points, only the second time this season he failed to reach double figures. CALIFORNIA 64, UNLV 61 SAN JOSE, Calif. Allen Crabbe had 19 points and nine rebounds, reserve Robert Thurman scored all 12 of his points on dunks and 12th-seeded California held off UNLV. Buoyed by the crowd support of a strong contingent so close to Berkeley, the Golden Bears (21-11) held the Runnin Rebels (25-10) without a basket for more than 11 minutes in the second half. Cal turned a tie game into a 9-point lead during that stretch and withstood a late UNLV push for its first tournament win since 2010. The fifth-seeded Rebels rallied to within a point in the final seconds before missed free throws and a costly inbounds pass sealed the loss. Bryce Dejean-Jones scored 15 points and Anthony Bennett shook off a poor start to finish with 15 points and 11 rebounds for UNLV, which beat Cal 76-75 in Berkeley on Dec. 9. Cal will face Syracuse in the third round. SYRACUSE 81, MONTANA 34 SAN JOSE, Calif. Brandon Triche scored 20 points, C.J. Fair added 13 and the fourth-seeded Orange shut down No. 13 seed Montana with their zone defense in the biggest NCAA tournament blowout by a team seeded third or lower. Michael Carter-Williams chipped in four points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Orange (27-9) raced out to an early lead that grew as big as 50 points and coasted past the Grizzlies (25-7) to their most lopsided tournament win since beating Brown 101-52 in the first round in 1986. MIDWEST REGIONAL LOUISVILLE 79, NORTH CAROLINA A&T 48 LEXINGTON, Ky. Russ Smith scored 23 points and had eight of Louisvilles NCAA tournamentrecord 20 steals in an easy win over North Carolina A&T. Peyton Siva added eight assists and four steals for top-seeded Louisville, which limited the 16thseeded Aggies (20-17) to 42 percent shooting and harassed them into 27 turnovers. It was the 11th straight victory for the Cardinals (30-5), who will play Colorado State on Saturday. Rick Pitino and the Big East champions quickly ended a postseason run for the Aggies, who finally earned their first NCAA tournament win on Tuesday. Bruce Beckford led North Carolina A&T with 12 points. COLORADO STATE 84, MISSOURI 72 LEXINGTON, Ky. Dorian Green scored 17 of his 26 points in the first half and eighth-seeded Colorado State ran away from Missouri. Green, who went scoreless with five turnovers in last years secondround loss to Murray State, did much better this time as the Rams shot nearly 58 percent in the first half. Minnesota transfer and Rams big man Colton Iverson outrebounded Missouri by himself through 27 minutes and finished with 13 boards. First-year Rams coach Larry Eustachy earned the victory with his fourth tournament team but the road gets tougher as they advance to face top-seeded Louisville in Saturdays third-round Midwest Regional game at Rupp Arena. Phil Presseys 20 points led the Tigers (23-11). MICHIGAN STATE 65, VALPARAISO 54 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Derrick Nix had 23 points and a career-high 15 rebounds to help power third-seeded Michigan State past the 14th-seeded Crusaders in the Midwest Regional.



EAST REGIONAL MARQUETTE 59, DAVIDSON 58 LEXINGTON, Ky. Vander Blues layup with a second left capped Marquettes late rally against 14th-seeded Davidson. Blue and Jamil Wilson made consecutive 3-pointers to bring Marquette to 58-57 with 11 seconds left. The third-seeded Golden Eagles then caught a huge break when DeMon Brooks long inbounds pass went out of bounds at midcourt with 5.5 seconds left, providing another opportunity. Blue took full advantage after taking Wilsons inbounds pass, driving left and finding room for the winning basket. He then sealed Marquettes improbable win by stealing Davidsons last-ditch inbounds

The Spartans went on a 26-5 run in the first half to take control and cruised to an easy victory. Michigan State (26-8) will play Memphis on Saturday when coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans will be shooting for a spot in the round of 16 for the fifth time in six years. The Crusaders (26-8) were no match for Michigan State in their first NCAA tourney in nine years. Erik Buggs scored 14 and Matt Kenney had 10 points for the Crusaders. MEMPHIS 54, SAINT MARYS 52 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Matthew Dellavedovas 3-pointer from the right wing missed everything as time expired, allowing sixthseeded Memphis to hold on for a win over 11th-seeded Saint Marys. The Tigers (31-4) led by 15 in the first half but nearly gave the game away in the final seconds. With Memphis ahead 54-49, Eividas Petrulis banked in a 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds to play. The Tigers then lost the ball when the Gaels Jordan Giusti deflected the inbounds pass off Joe Jackson of Memphis and out of bounds. Saint Marys (28-7) was out of timeouts but had a chance to regroup while officials reviewed the previous sequence. It didnt matter. Dellavedova, the career leader in scoring for Saint Marys, was able to get a shot off but it didnt come close to going in. It was the first win in the NCAA tournament for Memphis since 2009, when John Calipari was still coach. D.J. Stephens had nine points and eight blocks for Memphis, and Jackson had 14 points and seven assists. Brad Waldow scored 17 points to lead Saint Marys. Dellavedova had 10 points, seven assists and six turnovers in 40 minutes. SAINT LOUIS 64, NEW MEXICO STATE 44 SAN JOSE, Calif. Dwayne Evans scored 24 points, Cody Ellis added 12 and fourth-seeded Saint Louis overwhelmed New Mexico State in the Midwest Regional. Playing through Rick Majerus death in December, Saint Louis reached another mark for its late coach. The Billikens (28-6) eclipsed the 1988-89 teams school record of 27 victories. Evans shot 11-of-16 and finished a point shy of his career best to propel Saint Louis past 7-5 New Mexico State freshman Sim Bhullar. The Billikens held Bhullar to four points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. Saint Louis plays Oregon on Saturday. Bandja Sy had 17 points and nine rebounds for the 13th-seeded Aggies (24-11), who shot 28 percent. OREGON 68, OKLAHOMA STATE 55 SAN JOSE, Calif. Damyean Dotson scored 17 points and Arsalan Kazemi added 11 points and 17 rebounds to help 12th-seeded Oregon beat fifth-seeded Oklahoma, extending a run that began in the Pac-12 tournament. Dominic Artis scored 13 points and helped frustrate Oklahoma State star freshman Marcus Smart on the defensive end to give the Ducks (278) their first tournament win in six years. Smart came into the game with the hype of a top NBA prospect but was held to 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting for the Cowboys (24-9). SOUTH REGIONAL MICHIGAN 71, SOUTH DAKOTA STATE 56 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Glenn Robinson III scored 21 points and Mitch McGary added 13 points and nine rebounds, helping fourthseeded Michigan overcome a rough night for star Trey Burke. Burke made only two field goals and left the game briefly in the second half after a hard fall under the basket. The star point guard came back after that but finished with only six points. Michigan (27-7) advanced anyway behind Robinson, McGary and Tim Hardaway Jr., who scored 21 points. South Dakota State (25-10), the 13th seed, trailed by only four at halftime but couldnt keep up. Highscoring guard Nate Wolters was held to 10 points. Burke was limited to single digits for the first time all season. Michigan plays VCU on Saturday. VCU 88, AKRON 42 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Troy Daniels had 23 points, Juvonte Reddic scored 21 and VCU routed Akron in the most lopsided victory by a fifth-seeded team over a No. 12 in NCAA tournament history. The Rams (27-8) forced 22 turnovers. Akron (26-7) was seriously short-handed and it showed. In addition to playing without suspended point guard Alex Abreu, the Zips had other problems as well. Starting guard Brian Walsh and reserve center Pat Forsythe were limited by the flu and reserve guard Deji Ibitayo wasnt even in uniform because of back spasms.

of their streak, which started back on Feb. 23. They turned the ball over an uncharacteristic 20 times and didnt find a rhythm until the very end as they narrowly avoided their first home loss since falling to Washington on Jan. 14. It wasnt fun, Nuggets coach George Karl said, but it ended up being fun. At 31-3, the Nuggets surpassed Miami (30-3) for the best home record in the NBA and this one was easily the most satisfying of them all. After drawing the foul with 2.1 seconds left, Brewer took a deep breath and sank the first shot. I was just trying to be calm. I knew I needed to make two out of three and once I made the first one, a little pressures off, said Brewer, who finished with a career-best 29 points. He hit his second, then took a step back while JaVale McGee returned to the game. Once McGee was in place for a possible rebound, Brewer swished his third free throw. After a timeout, Randolph blocked Wilkins, who finished with 24 points, and win No. 14 was theirs. Theres no one to point the finger at, Turner said. We played hard the whole game; whatever could go wrong did go

By CHARLIE WARNIMONT DHI Correspondent sports@putnamsentinel.com COLUMBUS Ottawa-Glandorf didnt have their best day at the freethrow line Thursday morning during their Division III state semifinal with Ironton. However, a free throw by TJ Metzger with 1.1 seconds left in overtime was the deciding margin as O-G slipped by Ironton 61-60 in the first of two Division III state semis at the Value City Arena. O-G (25-3) advances to the Division III state title game Saturday morning against Versailles. The championship game tips off at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. After the Tigers (23-3) Zac Carter tied the game with 35.5 seconds left with two free throws, O-G worked the clock looking to take the final shot in a tied game. With the clock running down, Metzger drove the lane and put up a shot as he was fouled. After an Ironton timeout, Metzger went to the line and sank the second of his two free throws for a one point lead. I made my last two free throws and I went there with some confidence, Metzger said. I was trying to use my legs to get the ball up but I dont think I have legs right now. I just tried to concentrate and make that second one. Metzger played all 36 minutes of the game, as did Kaufman, for the second straight game. After the free throw, Ironton threw a desperation pass down court that deflected off two or three players before going out of bounds with just a tick of the clock showing. O-G was given possession of the ball and ran a play to run out the clock. Metzger led the Titans with 25 points as he buried four 4-pointers and seven free throws. Matt Kaufman finished with 11 points, including the two points that tied the game at the end of regulation. Kaufman also dished out six

assists. Michael Rosebrock had eight points and nine rebounds for O-G. Trey Fletcher led the Tigers with a game-high 27 points and 13 rebounds. Trevor White added 14 points and Carter finished with 12. Ottawa-Glandorf had to mount two rallies during the game to keep their season alive. Early in the second quarter, the Titans trailed 23-12 after a 10-0 Ironton run that closed out the first quarter and started the second as Fletcher had a pair of baskets to start the second quarter. After a quick timeout, O-G went on a 15-2 run as they took their first lead of the game at 27-25 on a Metzger 3-pointer. That was the second of two 3s by Metzger in the run that also included a 3-point play by Kaufman and a tip-in by Kaufman off an O-G miss. The two teams went into the locker room tied 28-28. As the third quarter got underway, the Titans grabbed a 33-28 edge and finished the quarter with a 41-38 lead. Ironton fought back in the final quarter as they went on a 6-0 late in the final stanza to take a 54-48 lead with 56 seconds. But in matter of eight seconds, the Titans had the deficit down to one point as Caleb Siefker canned three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point shot. O-Gs defense came up big on the inbounds play as the Titans forced a turnover and Kaufman flipped the ball over to Siefker who laid in a basket. After a Fletcher free throw with 28.4 seconds left gave Ironton a 55-53 lead, O-G played for the final shot and got a surprisingly easy basket from Kaufman as he drove the lane and laid in the tying basket with a second left. We talk to our guys all the time, that we may not be the best basketball players on the court, but you cannot question these guys heart and cannot

CAPSULES Versailles 64, Leavittsburg LaBrae 52 Kyle Ahrens and Damien Richard each had 21 points and Versailles pulled away in the fourth quarter to defeat Leavittsburg LaBrae 64-52 in the second Division III semifinal at the boys state tournament at Ohio States Value City Arena on Thursday. Versailles (23-5) goes for its first state title Saturday at 10:30 a.m. against Ottawa-Glandorf, who seeks a third. Versailles was runner-up in 2004 in its other state appearance. LaBrae (24-4) led 37-33 at the half and trailed only 49-47 early in the final period. But the team went more than six minutes without a point. Versailles went on a 13-0 run that wasnt stopped until Peyton Aldridge made a basket with 26 seconds left for the last of his game-high 23 points for the Vikings. DIVISION II Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary 70, Vincent Warren 51 Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary beat Vincent Warren by almost 20 points in the opening Division II semifinal at the boys state tournament at Ohio States Value City Arena on Thursday. Nick Wells scored 16 of his 18 points in the first three quarters for the Irish, who won 70-51. The Irish (20-9) play Columbus Watterson at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and will get a chance for a seventh title to tie Middletown for the all-time Ohio lead. The Irishs last championship was in 2011. Warren (26-2) trailed 19-17 before being outscored 20-10 in the second quarter and never threatened after that. Reece Patton had 21 points and Michael Hall 15 for Warren. VJ King amassed 14 points and Jalen Hudson had 12 points for St. Vincent-St. Mary. Watterson 53, Kettering Alter 42 Matt Hughes had 21 points as Columbus Bishop Watterson defeated Kettering Archbishop Alter 53-42 in a Division II semifinal at the boys state tournament at Ohio States Value City Arena on Thursday. The Eagles (27-1) have won 22 games straight. Theyll take on Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Watterson took the lead just past the 5-minute mark of the second period but didnt have more than a 2-possession advantage until four minutes left in the game. Matt Lehmann added 14 points for Watterson in the schools state tournament debut. Jaaron Simmons had 17 points for Alter (21-6) in the final game for coach Joe Petrocelli. He announced his retirement last month after a 49-year career, which included 831 wins, second-most in Ohio history.

question their toughness, McGlaughlin said. These guys are all athletes. They all play other sports as 13 of the 14 guys were involved in football or soccer, teams that went to the regional finals last fall. They are used to winning. They expect to win and they dont care how it gets done. Tonight just proves that they play hard. They played hard for 36 minutes and made plays when they had to. I was very, very proud of the effort, McGlaughlin added.

National Hockey League Capsules

The Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. Martin Brodeur scored his third career goal and made 17 saves in his first game in a month, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. Brodeur had been out since Feb. 21 with a pinched nerve in his upper back and neck. Peter Harrold, Adam Henrique and Andrei Loktionov also scored to help the Devils snap a 3-game losing streak. Jeff Skinner had the Hurricanes lone goal while Dan Ellis made 19 saves in Carolinas fifth consecutive loss. Brodeur got credit for the games first goal when Carolinas Jordan Staal passed the puck back to the point from behind the net after a delayed penalty call against New Jerseys Marek Zidlicky. The pass missed intended target Tim Gleason and bounced off the boards near center ice. Ellis had already skated toward the bench because of the delayed penalty and couldnt get back in time to prevent the puck from sliding into the net. Because he was the last Devils player to touch the puck, Brodeur got credit for the score. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Brodeur is the first goalie to score a power-play goal since Evgeni Nabokov for San Jose in 2002.
STARS 2, KINGS 0 LOS ANGELES Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney scored 4:22 apart in the third period, lifting Dallas to its fourth straight win at Staples Center. The 41-year-old Jagr and 40-year-old Whitney scored in the same game for the second time this season. On Jan. 19 against Phoenix, they became the fourth pair of teammates age 40 or older to score in the same game since 1942-43. Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves to earn his first shutout of the season. Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots for the Kings. PANTHERS 3, RANGERS 1 NEW YORK Jacob Markstrom made 44 saves and just missed his first NHL shutout, helping the cellar-dwelling Panthers get the win against the playoff-hopeful Rangers. The Rangers had gotten back into eighth place in the Eastern Conference with wins on consecutive nights this week after a 3-game skid. But Markstrom was sharp and shut down offensively-challenged New York. Markstrom, who has played in only nine games since being recalled from the minors in February, earned his third NHL win of the season. Markstrom lost his shutout bid when Marian Gaborik cut the Rangers deficit to 2-1 with 3:48 left but the 23-yearold goalie settled for wins in back-to-back games. Brian Campbell scored in the first period and Scottie Upshall made it 2-0 in the second against Henrik Lundqvist, who faced 23 shots. BRUINS 2, SENATORS 1 OTTAWA Dennis Seidenberg scored with 1:04 left to lead the Bruins to the victory. Patrice Bergeron won a faceoff in the offensive zone back to Zdeno Chara and the Boston captain fed Seidenberg. He shot it past goalie Robin Lehner through a maze of players. Daniel Paille also scored for the Bruins (20-6-3) and Anton Khudobin made 27 saves. The Bruins pulled within three points of Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh. Kaspars Daugavins scored for Ottawa and Lehner also stopped 27 shots. CANUCKS 2, COYOTES 1 GLENDALE, Ariz. Jordan Schroeder scored midway through the third period, Cory Schneider stopped 33 shots and the Canucks grinded out a road win. Schneider allowed a tying goal to Antoine Vermette in the third period but Schroeder put the Canucks back up by punching in a rebound after a redirect by Jannik Hansen trickled past Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera. Christopher Tanev also scored and Schneider made some big saves down the stretch, including a semi-breakaway by Martin Hanzal, to secure Vancouvers fourth win in six games. LaBarbera stopped 14 shots in the third period after replacing injured starter Mike Smith for the Coyotes. CAPITALS 4, JETS 0 WINNIPEG, Manitoba Braden Holtby made 20 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and Alexander Ovechkin had a goal and two assists for the Capitals. Nicklas Backstrom added a goal and an assist for Washington, while Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson also scored. Holtby also blanked Winnipeg 3-0 on March 2, giving him the only shutouts against the Jets this season. Ondrej Pavelec faced 25 shots for the Jets. The Jets and Washington play again tonight in Winnipeg. CANADIENS 5, ISLANDERS 2 UNIONDALE, N.Y. Brian Gionta scored the go-ahead goal 48 seconds into the third period, P.K. Subban added two more and the Canadiens beat the Islanders for the first time in three tries this season. Giontas 10th goal of the season came after center David Desharnais caught a wobbling puck by the blue line off a clearing attempt, set it down and passed it to Gionta in front. Subban tied it at 2 with his eighth goal 10:53 into the second period and added an insurance goal midway through the third. Michael Ryder and Brendan Gallagher also scored for Montreal, which is 14-1-4 since losing to Toronto 6-0 on Feb. 9. Carey Price made 25 saves. John Tavares and Lubomir Visnovsky scored for the Islanders. SABRES 5, MAPLE LEAFS 4, SO BUFFALO, N.Y. Steve Ott scored the decisive goal in the sixth round of the shootout, helping Buffalo rally for the win. Ryan Miller secured the victory by getting his left pad out to stop former Sabres forward Clarke MacArthurs shootout attempt. Miller stopped 32 shots through overtime and allowed only Tyler Bozak to score in the tie-breaker. Ott set up his successful shootout goal by driving in full speed on James Reimer. Without stopping, Ott slipped the puck inside the right post before the goalie had a chance to get his pad out. Christian Ehrhoff had a goal and two assists for Buffalo. Tyler Ennis had a goal and an assist; Marcus Foligno and Jason Pominville also scored. Nazem Kadri had two goals and an assist for Toronto. PREDATORS 5, FLAMES 3 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Mike Fisher scored two goals and Nashville snapped a 4-game losing streak. Martin Erat, Nick Spaling, and Brandon Yip had the other goals for the Predators; Pekka Rinne made 19 saves. Mark Giordano, Blake Comeau and Jarome Iginla scored for the Flames. The Predators grabbed control with four consecutive goals beginning late in the first period and carrying over to the third. Fisher converted a nice feed from Erat to tie it at 2 in the first, then put Nashville in front at 13:24 of the middle period.

(Continued from page 6) wrong. Even though Miller scored a season-high 21 points, the Nuggets sorely missed Lawson (right heel) and Chandler, both of whom were hurt in Denvers signature win at Oklahoma City Tuesday night. Danilo Gallinaris seventh turnover led to Wilkins jumper that made it 98-90 with two minutes remaining and the crowd was standing in disbelief that this streak was really going to come to an end against the leagues lowest-scoring team, one which had won just six times on the road, tied for the fewest in the NBA. Randolphs slam dunk with made it 98-95 but Jrue Holiday, who had 15 assists to go with his 18 points, sank two free throws with 14 seconds remaining to give Philadelphia a seemingly safe 5-point cushion. Before the game, it was noted that Karls team has been flying under the radar because of the Heats streak that included a comeback Wednesday night from a 27-point deficit in Cleveland. Thats fine, Karl added. Thats fine with me. I just dont want to get down 27 tonight. I dont think we can shoot the 3 as well as Miami does and make the comeback. Turns out, the Nuggets needed a big comeback of their own. It might have been the most satisfying of their 14 straight wins, too. It was a crazy win, Gallinari said. We didnt play our best basketball. We know it. Everybody knows it. And to win in this way, even when you dont play your best basketball is a very good sign. The Sixers wanted to hold their heads high but they couldnt quit shaking them in disbelief. Philadelphia coach Doug Collins was agitated at his teams failure to close out a winnable game. We had a 7-point lead and the ball, Collins lamented. I can sit here and do my best TNT (sugar-coating) and the end result is we didnt get it done.

NOTES: Chandler said his shoulder felt better Thursday but added that he plans to sit out Denvers next two games and hopes to return March 27 against San Antonio.

The Associated Press COLLEGE PARK, Md. Maryland used a small lineup to mount a big comeback in a 62-52 victory over Denver on Thursday night in the second round of the NIT. Dez Wells scored 19 points for the Terrapins, who closed with a 23-4 run after trailing 48-39 with 9:15 left. Wells fueled the surge with nine points. It was the sixth game in 12 days for the Terrapins (24-12), who wont play again until next week against either Alabama or Stanford. Chris Udofia scored 24 for the Pioneers (22-10), including 19 during a first half that featured three ties and 12 lead changes. But he got his third foul with 17:55 left and fourth with 8:37 to go. Seeking its 12th win in 13 games, Denver appeared poised for an upset as the second half wore on. It was 33-all before Marcus Byrd drilled a 3-pointer to spark a 15-6 spree that included a 3-point play and a 3-pointer by Brett Olsen. And then Maryland began its comeback with 7-1 Alex Len and 6-8 James Padgett on the bench. Maryland used five straight free throws to launch the decisive run. A runner by Seth Allen put the Terrapins up 51-50 with 4:09 remaining, the first time they led after halftime. Turgeon was pressed to remember the last time he used a lineup of five guards for that long. PRO BASKETBALL DEERFIELD, Ill. Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose still isnt sure when hell come back from his knee injury. The former MVP point guard sounded like a player who just might miss the entire season, though he said he hasnt experienced any setbacks in his recovery. He added Thursday that hes still experiencing some soreness in his surgicallyrepaired left knee and hasnt set a target date for his return. Rose hasnt played since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last years playoff opener against Philadelphia, an injury that sent the top-seeded Bulls toward a first-round exit. He had surgery in May and his status has been a running soap opera surrounding this team. PRO FOOTBALL FLORENCE, Ala. Harlon Hill, the former star receiver for the Chicago Bears whose name adorns the NCAA Division II player of the year trophy, has died. He was 80. Jeff Hodges, chairman of the National Harlon Hill Award Committee, announced Hill died at Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital in Florence after a lengthy illness. Hill, who attended North Alabama, was the NFL rookie of the year in 1954 after being drafted in the 15th round by the Bears and became the first winner of the Jim Thorpe Trophy as the NFLs most valuable player in 1955. In nine seasons with the Bears, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions, he had 233 receptions for 4,717 yards and 40 touchdowns. NEW ORLEANS A partial power outage during this years Super Bowl occurred because a relay device with a design defect malfunctioned, an outside expert confirmed. Entergy, which supplies electricity to the Superdome, and the stadiums management company hired forensic engineer John Palmer to perform an independent analysis of the Feb. 3 outage. Palmer is president of Palmer Engineering & Forensics in Kaysville, Utah. Entergy has said it believed the outage was caused by an electrical relay device that it installed specifically to prevent a power failure at the dome. Palmers report says the primary cause of the disruption was a malfunction or misoperation of the relay. The partial blackout delayed the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers for 34 minutes. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mark Duper

Todays Sports in Brief

was released from jail, charged after police say he beat his 17-year-old son during a series of fights at their Jacksonville home. Duper, who starred for the Dolphins from 1982-92, spent a night in jail after his arrest Wednesday on one count of felony child abuse. He was released Thursday afternoon after posting a $5,000 bail, police in Jacksonville said. Authorities say Duper attacked his son, Marcus, three times and knocked him out twice. DALLAS A federal grand jury in Dallas re-indicted former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd, who already is accused of trying to establish a drugdistribution network. The new indictment charges Hurd with conspiracy to possess 5 kilograms or more of cocaine with intent to distribute. Hurd was first arrested in December 2011 outside a Chicago-area steakhouse after agents alleged that he accepted cocaine. He was re-arrested last year after authorities said he tried to buy more drugs and failed two drug tests. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to life in prison. BASEBALL TUCSON, Ariz. Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez was scheduled to undergo surgery today on his right thumb and is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks, leaving Los Angeles to look for alternatives at shortstop until hes ready to play. An MRI indicated that Ramirez has a torn ligament in his thumb, the team announced. Dr. Steve Shin, a sports-medicine hand specialist, is scheduled to perform the surgery in Los Angeles. Ramirez was injured Tuesday night while playing for the Dominican Republic in its victory over Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic championship game in San Francisco. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti added Ramirez could start rehab in about three weeks. Dee Gordon and Luis Cruz appear to be the leading candidates to be the opening day shortstop. SOCCER ATHENS, Greece The chairman of the Greek soccer club AEK Athens chairman was arrested, with his team accused of not paying $219.5 million in taxes. Andreas Dimitrelos was in police custody and was to testify before a magistrate today. It was the latest high-profile arrest over taxes in a country reeling from economic problems. The club reported the alleged offenses came before Dimitrelos became chairman last year and added the matter was being settled in a restructuring procedure initiated by AEK under the countrys bankruptcy code. Also this week, midfielder Giorgos Katidis was suspended from AEK after celebrating a goal with a Nazi-style salute. He also received a lifetime ban from the national team. CHICAGO The U.S. will play its fourth straight home World Cup qualifier against Mexico at Columbus and will host Germany in an exhibition game at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the sites of remaining home qualifiers, saying it will host Panama at Seattle on June 11; Honduras at Sandy, Utah, on June 18; Mexico at Columbus on Sept. 10; and Jamaica at Kansas City, Kan., on Oct. 11. COLLEGE SPORTS TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Two of the nations top sprinters were suspended by Florida State officials hours after the athletes were arrested following an early morning poolside shooting incident. A police report stated that Ronell J. Mance, who won a silver medal in the 2012 Olympic Games in the 4x400 relay, and Stephen Newbold, the MVP at the recent Atlantic Coast Conference indoor track and field championships, were arrested moments after Tallahassee police were alerted that the shots were being fired at an off-campus student apartment complex at about 3:30 a.m. There were no injuries reported.

Arthroscopy has made knee surgery quicker and easier

DEAR DOCTOR K: Im a lifelong runner with severe knee pain. Can you tell me about knee arthroscopy? How do I know if Im a good candidate for it? DEAR READER: Arthroscopy is a technique used to diagnose problems in the knees and other joints. If a problem requiring surgery is identified, arthroscopic surgery can be performed. To appreciate how valuable arthroscopic surgery is, you have to understand what things were like back in the old days -- as when I was in medical school. If you had bad knee pain, the doctor might have been able to diagnose the problem by physical examination. If not, X-rays were not much help: They could spot bone problems, but most knee problems involve the soft tissues -- tendons, ligaments, meniscuses. So the doctor might have needed to perform surgery to open up the knee joint, look around and surgically repair the problem. It took quite a while to recover from that surgery. Arthroscopy has made much knee surgery easier -- for the doctor and the patient. The arthroscope is a flexible tube with a light at its tip and a camera that flashes images on a video monitor. The doctor needs to make only a small hole to insert the arthroscope and get a good view of the inside of the knee. If surgical repair is necessary, the doctor can perform the surgery by placing tiny surgical instruments inside the knee and watching the images on the video monitor. He or she can locate and remove torn cartilage, debris and loose material from the joint. The knee does not need to be opened up. If you do have the surgery, you probably wont have to stay in the hospital overnight. The type of anesthesia used varies; it can be general (you go to sleep), regional (the leg is numbed) or local (just the knee area is numbed).

Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D.

Ask Doctor K
Recovery from arthroscopic surgery is relatively quick. You should be back to normal, day-to-day living during the first week. By the second week, you can return to work if your job is not physically taxing. By the third week, you can begin light exercise. Physical therapy is not usually needed. Depending on the condition of your joint, you can expect mild to moderate improvement. The results may last several months or perhaps a few years. However, if you have severe osteoarthritis, arthroscopy is unlikely to help much. Most arthroscopies are performed on patients between 20 and 60 years of age. Good candidates are active people in their 30s and 40s who are starting to have knee pain resulting from decades of running, skiing, basketball or other sports. Most people who undergo arthroscopy -- and who are most likely to benefit from it -- include patients with knee pain caused by torn cartilage or ligaments, and those with mechanical knee problems such as locking, catching or giving out. We have more information on treatments for knee pain in our Special Health Report, Knees and Hips. (Learn more about this report at AskDoctorK.com, or call 877649-9457 toll-free to order it.)

Teen hit it big with Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

in Woodhaven, N.Y. -H.R., Stroudsburg, Pa. A: Teen idol Brian Hyland was born in November 1943 in the Woodhaven neighborhood of Queens, N.Y. He was only 16 in 1960 when he scored his first and only No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit, Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. Two years later he had success with Sealed With a Kiss, which reached No. 3 on the charts. The popularity of a teen idol is usually very short-lived, as it was for Hyland. In 1977, he moved to New Orleans, where he continues to make music, record songs and tour, often with his son, Bodi. He did not record Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor? Lonnie Donegan released that song in 1959. Some super trivia: Brian Hyland is a cousin by marriage to the late Louis Feinberg, better known as Larry Fine of the Three Stooges. Q: I saw a made-forTV movie, The Magic of Ordinary Days. Skeet Ulrich played the role of the farmer. What do you know about

Keep in mind the advantages of serving in the rear ranks. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It could pay to take a spontaneous break, especially if there is nothing to prevent you from doing so. Chances are, youve already done more than your share at work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -This could be a perfect day to work on all those projects that need some finishing touches. You could be unusually good at closing deals. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your imaginative and creative instincts are likely to be more pronounced than ever. Take advantage of this and finish all the projects youve left dangling. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There are times when it may be necessary for you to be frugal and there are times when its OK to splurge. You should be able to combine the two extremes without abusing either. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It might be wise to step in and take control of a matter that, in your opinion, hasnt been handled too wisely. Others will most likely thank you for the intrusion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -It wont take some kind of obvious action to make your presence felt. Function from behind the scenes, where youre capable of being an effective force. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Social involvements wont be a frivolous waste of your time. On the contrary, you might be able to do yourself the most good at a friendly gathering rather than a business meeting. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Good tactics and great style could be more significant than usual. The nature of your accomplishment will not be as meaningful as how you go about it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Much can be accomplished, provided you honestly believe in the positive ideas that you espouse. If you dont, others will easily perceive your doubts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should be able to derive some material benefits from other than your usual sources. It behooves you to begin looking for opportunities in fresh fields. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- To advance a personal ambition, it might be necessary for you to make some compromises when dealing with others. Be pliable for best results. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Youre likely to have a slight edge in any competitive situations, mostly because youll be far more imaginative than your adversaries.

3 dead, including suspect, in Marine base shooting

BY MATTHEW BARAKAT The Associated Press QUANTICO, Va. A Marine killed a male and female colleague in a shooting at a base in northern Virginia before killing himself, officials said early today. Authorities were called to the scene at Marine Corps Base Quantico around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, where they found one Marine dead at a barracks, base commander Col. David W. Maxwell told reporters. Authorities later found a second victim dead, along with the body of the suspected gunman, who died of self-inflicted gunshot wound. A base spokesman initially described the situation as a standoff. Maxwell said later in the morning that there was no standoff. Base spokesman Lt. Agustin Solivan later clarified that after the first shooting, police had the shooter isolated in a barracks dorm room at the bases Officer Candidates School. No names were immediately released but officials said all three were staff members at the school. Solivan said the shooting was isolated to the school and authorities were confident there were no other casualties. The base was put on lockdown after the shooting but the lockdown was lifted early today. During the lockdown, residents were warned over a loudspeaker to stay inside. The shooting is the second tragedy the Marine Corps has faced this week. Seven members of the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force were killed Monday when a mortar shell exploded in its firing tube during an exercise at Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada. Eight others were injured. The Quantico base, which is about 37 miles south of Washington, is also home to the FBIs training academy. Its Officer Candidates School is the equivalent of basic training for Marines interested in becoming officers. According to a Marine Corps website,

Texas shootout may tie Obama ending Israel visit with symbolic stops Obama had been scheduled to take acknowledged that the rationale for BY MATTHEW LEE to Colo. prison chief death Israels existence rests with its historical a helicopter to Bethlehem but had to The Associated Press
BY ANGELA K. BROWN and P. SOLOMON BANDA The Associated Press DECATUR, Texas Investigators from three Colorado police agencies rushed to Texas to determine if a man identified as a parolee, who was critically wounded by Texas police after a harrowing 100-mph car chase, is linked to the slaying of Colorados state prisons chief. The black Cadillac the suspect drove, with Colorado license plates, matched the description of a car spotted outside Tom Clements home in Monument, Colo., just before he was fatally shot while answering his front door Tuesday evening. Evan Spencer Ebel, 28, was gravely wounded in the clash with police Thursday. Authorities said he was not expected to survive and was hooked up to equipment for organ harvesting. Colorado investigators immediately headed to Texas to determine whether Ebel was linked to Clements slaying and the killing Sunday of Nathan Leon, a Denver pizza delivery man. Police in Colorado would only say the connection to the Leon case is strong but would not elaborate or say if they believe Ebel killed Clements and Leon. The Denver Post first reported Ebels name, and that he was in a white supremacist prison gang called the 211s. A federal law enforcement official confirmed his identity and gang affiliation to The Associated Press. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity. The killing of Clements, 58, shocked his quiet neighborhood in Monument, a town of rolling hills north of Colorado Springs, for its brutality: He answered the door of his home Tuesday evening and was gunned down. Authorities wouldnt say if they thought the attack was related to his job, and all Clements recent public activities and cases were scrutinized. The Texas car chase started when a sheriffs deputy in Montague County, James Boyd, tried to pull over the Cadillac around 11 a.m. Thursday, authorities there said. They wouldnt say exactly why he was stopped, but called it routine. The driver opened fire on Boyd, wounding him, Wise County Sheriff David Walker said at an afternoon news conference in Decatur. He then fled south before crashing into a semi as he tried to elude his pursuers. After the crash, he got out of the vehicle, shooting at deputies and troopers who had joined the chase. He shot at Decatur Police Chief Rex Hoskins four times as the chief tried to set up a roadblock. The car is so far the main link authorities have given between the Colorado case and the Texas shootout. El Paso County sheriffs investigators have been looking for a dark, late-model car, possibly a Lincoln or a Cadillac, that a neighbor spotted near Clements home around the time of the shooting. Other links between Ebel and the Colorado killings arent clear. Legal records show he was convicted of several crimes in Colorado dating back to 2003, including assaulting a prison guard in 2008. He apparently was paroled, but Colorado Department of Corrections spokeswoman Alison Morgan said she could not release information on prisoners because of the ongoing investigation into Clements death. JERUSALEM Wrapping up a three day visit to Israel, President Barack Obama paid respects to its heroes and to victims of the Holocaust, solemnly reaffirming the Jewish states right to exist. Accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres, Obama laid wreaths at the graves of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism who died in 1904 before realizing his dream of a Jewish homeland, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995. He also toured the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, declaring after that the memorial illustrates the depravity to which man can sink but also serves as a reminder of the righteous among the nations who refused to be bystanders. Fridays stop at Herzls grave, together with Thursdays visit to see the Dead Sea Scrolls, the ancient Hebrew texts, were symbolic stops for Obama that ties to the region and with a vision that predated the Holocaust. Obama was criticized in Israel for his 2009 Cairo speech in which he gave only the example of the Holocaust as reason for justifying Israels existence. Here on your ancient land, let it be said for all the world to hear, Obama said at Yad Vashem today, in a clear response to that criticism. The state of Israel does not exist because of the Holocaust, but with the survival of a strong Jewish state of Israel, such a holocaust will never happen again. Later in the day, Obama was traveling to Jordan where he planned to meet with King Abdullah II. Among the topics is Jordans struggle with the influx of a half-million refugees from the Syrian civil war. Abdullah has voiced fears that extremists and terrorists could create a regional base in Jordan. Before leaving for Jordan, Obama had lunch with Netanyahu and then took his motorcade to Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity.

the mission of Officer Candidates School is to train, screen and evaluate candidates. The training includes both academics and physical training such as endurance hikes and obstacles courses. Marines become second lieutenants on graduation from the 10-week program. In 2010, the Quantico base was one of several targets of an ex-Marine reservist who, during five nighttime shootings, fired on military targets including the Pentagon. Yonathan Melaku, on two separate occasions, fired at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico. No one was injured and Melaku was ultimately sentenced to 25 years in prison.

But about 50 Palestinian demonstrators gathered on the main road with signs saying Free Palestine. Obama and his Israeli hosts arrived at the somber Herzl grave site under cloudless skies. Obama approached Herzls resting place alone and bowed his head in silence. He turned briefly to ask Netanyahu where to place a small stone in the Jewish custom, then laid the stone atop the grave. At Rabins grave a short walk away, Obama was greeted by members of Rabins family. He initially placed a stone on Rabins wifes side of the grave, then returned to place one atop Rabins side. In a gesture linking the U.S. and Israel, the stone placed on Rabins grave was from the grounds of the Martin Luther King memorial in Washington, the White House said.
