Wrestler McConnahea came a long way

By JIM METCALFE COLUMBUS Jefferson senior Colin McConnahea came a long way. From a sub-.500 freshman season for thencoach Jeff Rex in 2009-10 to a seventh-place finish beating Heaths Gunner Loughman 6-0 Saturday after besting the same senior 7-1 in the championship preliminaries Thursday at the 2012-13 OHSAA State Wrestling Championships held on the floor of Value City Arena inside the Jerome Schottenstein Center, the 76th installment of the event, McConnahea ended his high school mat career on the podium. It just wasnt quite where the 195-pounder wanted to end up. I wanted more than seventh; I felt that after I won my first match, I figured I could be in the top 3, he began. I lost to (eventual runner-up) Dalton Ishmael in the second round and he is the all-time pins leader in Ohio. I took him to the second period, so even though I dont like to lose, that one wasnt

nearly as bad. He had placed in the top five two times before. Even though I didnt end up as high as I wanted, it still is a good experience to wrestle here in this environment. The more matches I got (he went 3-2), the more it seemed like just another meet, just with more people. In the 7th/8th-place match at Ohio State University, neither wrestler scored in the first period. McConnahea, from the up position to begin the second, earned two back points for a 2-0 lead. In the third period, McConnahea gained a reversal with 35 seconds to go and finished the match with two back points. The match was interrupted several times due to blood. McConnahea capped off a 4-year varsity career with over 135 wins, fighting through a season of the dreaded skin issues and illness to cap a 48-3 season.

Bull riding a way of life for young Convoy man

BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent VAN WERT Hat Creek Arena in Van Wert brings bull riders from a variety of states surrounding Ohio and the rodeo has brought out the daredevil and adventurist in many locals as well. Last year, Crestview High School graduate and Convoy local Tyler Torrey fulfilled his long-time wish to ride a bull. Ive been interested in riding since I was old enough to know what bull riding was, said Torrey. His uncle, Denny Kreischer, is a part-owner of Hat Creek, which allowed Torrey a special opportunity to be around this sport from a young age. Spending time with his uncle allowed the young boy to fall in love with the lifestyle. Growing up watching professional bull riders such as Ty Murray and J.W. Hart and riders at Hat Creek only inspired Torrey further to do his own riding someday. Kreischer urged his nephew to go through schooling before his first ride but when Torrey was finally old enough to ride he accompanied two other riders, Blaise and Chaise May, to another rodeo arena. The two understood Torreys desire and helped him to complete his first ride in June 2012. The first time I ever got on a bull was exhilarating, remarked Torrey. I didnt feel the adrenaline rush that others speak of, maybe because Ive been around riding since I was young. I was just wanting to have a good time and see what I thought of it. It made me feel good to do something that Ive been

Baby born with HIV apparently cured

By LAURAN NEERGAARD The Associated Press WASHINGTON A baby born with the virus that causes AIDS appears to have been cured, scientists announced Sunday, describing the case of a child from Mississippi whos now 2 1/2 and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection. Theres no guarantee the child will remain healthy, although sophisticated testing uncovered just traces of the virus genetic material still lingering. If so, it would mark only the worlds second reported cure. Specialists say Sundays announcement, at a major AIDS meeting in Atlanta, offers promising clues for efforts to eliminate HIV infection in children, especially in AIDS-plagued African countries where too many babies are born with the virus. You could call this about as close to a cure, if not a cure, that weve seen, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health, who is familiar with the findings, told The Associated Press. A doctor gave this baby faster and stronger treatment than is usual, starting a threedrug infusion within 30 hours of birth. That was before tests confirmed the infant was infected and not just at risk from a mother whose HIV wasnt diagnosed until she was in labor. I just felt like this baby was at higher-than-normal risk, and deserved our best shot, Dr. Hannah Gay, a pediatric HIV specialist at the University of Mississippi, said in an interview. That fast action apparently knocked out HIV in the babys blood before it could form hideouts in the body. Those so-called reservoirs of dormant cells usually rapidly reinfect anyone who stops medication, said Dr. Deborah Persaud of Johns Hopkins Childrens Center. She led the investigation that deemed the child functionally cured, meaning in long-term remission even if all traces of the virus havent been completely eradicated. Next, Persauds team is planning a study to try to prove that, with more aggressive treatment of other high-risk babies. Maybe well be able to block this reservoir seeding, Persaud said. No one should stop antiAIDS drugs as a result of this case, Fauci cautioned. But it opens up a lot of doors to research if other children can be helped, he said. It makes perfect sense what happened. Better than treatment is to prevent babies from being born with HIV in the first place. About 300,000 children were born with HIV in 2011, mostly in poor countries where only about 60 percent

of infected pregnant women get treatment that can keep them from passing the virus to their babies. In the U.S., such births are very rare because HIV testing and treatment long have been part of prenatal care. We cant promise to cure babies who are infected. We can promise to prevent the vast majority of transmissions if the moms are tested during every pregnancy, Gay stressed. The only other person considered cured of the AIDS virus underwent a very different and risky kind of treatment a bone marrow transplant from a special donor, one of the rare people who is naturally resistant to HIV. Timothy Ray Brown of San Francisco has not needed HIV medications in the five years since that transplant. The Mississippi case shows there may be different cures for different populations of HIV-infected people, said Dr. Rowena Johnston of amFAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. That group funded Persauds team to explore possible cases of pediatric cures. It also suggests that scientists should look back at other children whove been treated since shortly after birth, including some reports of possible cures in the late 1990s that were dismissed at the time, said Dr. Steven Deeks of the University of California, San Francisco, who also has seen the findings.

Lenten lunches continue

DELPHOS The Delphos Ministerial Association is holding its Lenten Lunch Program on Thursdays through March 21 at Trinity United Methodist Church. Lent is a time for prayerful reflection as many look to the cross in order to prepare hearts for the death and resurrection of Jesus. This year, the association will follow the theme Facing the Cross. Luke 9:51 says that when Jesus days drew near for Him to leave this earth, Jesus set his face to Jerusalem to encounter the pain of the cross on his flocks behalf. Each week, the Lenten series will look at life situations everyone face. Lunch, fellowship and spiritual encouragement begin at noon at Trinity United Methodist Church. Dates remaining in the Lenten series are: Thursday The Rev Ron Lumm to speak on Facing Our Worldliness. March 14 Pastor Gary Fish to speak on Facing One Another. March 21 The Rev. Mel Verhoff to speak on Facing Suffering. Holy Week servies: March 28 Maundy Thursday Services Check with your local churches for time and place. March 29 Good Friday Trinity UMC Facing Death March 31 Easter Sunday Check with your local churches for time and place.

Torrey wanting to do ever since I was a little kid. Torrey rode as many times as possible in 2012. When his uncle found out, Torrey was finally permitted to ride at Hat Creek without schooling. Now bull riding has become a way of life for this young adult. He can be seen riding the large, bucking bulls every Saturday at Hat Creek and hopes to travel to outside competitions beginning this summer. Bull riding isnt for everybody, said Torrey. I would recommend people try it if they have a strong desire to but I would never push someone to try it. Living in the Convoy area allows Torrey to help sort bulls at the arena before the bull rides on Saturday nights. When he isnt fulfilling his passion for riding, he is busy at work at Century Trading Company. The young bull rider has also began riding horses bareback and plans to make a drop barrel to work on his riding skills. Torrey said he would like to progress in his riding and he is eager to see how far he can get in this extreme sport.

For The Record

Police serve three arrest warrants over weekend
Delphos Police served three arrest warrants this weekend. At 10:01 a.m. on Friday, police went to a residence in the 800 block of West Skinner Street in reference to an active arrest warrant for a subject in that area. Queen II U p o n officers arrival, they came into contact with Roger Queen II, 21, of Delphos, at which time officers took Queen into custody on the warrant issued out of Van Wert Municipal Court for failing to appear on a court case. Queen was transported to the Van Wert County Jail and will appear in Van Wert Municipal Court on the warrant. At 10:59 a.m. on Saturday, police went to a residence in the 200 block of Holland Ave. to serve an active arrest warrant for a subject at a residence in that area. Officers c a m e into contact with Ashley Sterling, 28, of Sterling Delphos, at which time officers took Sterling into custody on the secret indictment warrant issued out of Van Wert





(Continued from page 1) whole family on a trip to shop for groceries. The Balancing Act The couple have limited personal time spending quality time together or pursuing individual interests so, they take advantage of any free time they can get. Karl has a home gym set up in the basement, which provides him a limited amount of personal space and time for reflection a few days a week for about an hour. The space is not off limits to the kids and infrequently, one of them might come downstairs during a workout and watch television. Both Karl and Theresa would like more time for their relationship. Its rare to have time together and be alone, Theresa glanced at her husband. More time would be nice. Communication is key. For Karl and Theresa, there is little time for chit chat let alone a very important conversation demanding their undivided attention. While the family is at home which is most of the time it is impossible to have a continuous dialogue. Its tough when everybody wants something at he same time, Theresa explained. Both Karl and Theresa agreed. The majority of their conversations take place driving to and from work. Both have some flexibility with their jobs when it comes to squeezing some time into their schedules to handle family matters. Important conversations, requiring limited interruptions, are via phone during work breaks, Theresa added. Another factor to consider is the amount of time Karl and Theresa devote to caring for Shelly and Alex. At times, Karl gets a sense that Ethan and Maria may feel slighted because of Shelly and Alex living under the same roof and not getting that attention they are looking for. Whether its changing a diaper, providing medical care, or bathing in bubbles, Theresa spends three to four hours a day providing support for the little guy. Hes just like my kid, Theresa exclaimed. If he needs his nails clipped, I just take care of it. All things considered, Karl and Theresa feel that most of the dynamics are manageable, however; there are a few unresolved issues when it comes to Shellys parental role and responsibilities. She doesnt do the babys laundry but she does her own? Theresa mused. She should be the mother and take care of it.

NEW YORK (AP) A baby delivered after his parents were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident died early Monday, a community spokesman said. Isaac Abraham, who serves as a spokesman for the familys Orthodox Jewish community, said the child died around 5:30 a.m. Police were searching for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled on foot after slamming into a livery cab, killing the young pregnant woman and her husband. This guys a coward and he should pay his price, said Abraham, adding that the community wants a homicide prosecution. Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were looking forward to welcoming their first child into their tight-knit community of Orthodox Jews. The horrific crash happened in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn as the couple headed to a hospital. The engine of the livery car ended up in the backseat, where Raizy Glauber, who was seven months pregnant, was sitting before she was ejected, Abraham said. Her body landed under a parked tractor-trailer, said witnesses who raced to the scene after the crash. Nachman Glauber was pinned in the car, and emergency workers had to cut off the roof to get him out, witnesses said. The Glaubers both were pronounced dead at hospitals, and the medical examiner said they died of blunt-force trauma. Doctors had delivered the baby by cesarean section. Neighbors and friends said the boy weighed only about 4 pounds. The Glaubers livery cab driver was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and was later released. Both the driver of the BMW and a passenger fled and were being sought, police said. Meanwhile, police said the registered owner of the BMW, who was not in the car, was charged with insurance fraud. Police said Takia Walk, 29, was arrested Sunday. They did not have any details regarding the charge. On Saturday, Raizy Glauber was not feeling well, so they decided to go to the hospital, said Sara Glauber, Nachman Glaubers cousin. Abraham said the Glaubers called a car service because they didnt own a car, which is common for New Yorkers. The Glaubers were married about a year ago and had begun a life together in Williamsburg, where Raizy Glauber grew up in a prominent Orthodox Jewish rabbinical family, Sara Glauber said. Raised north of New York City in Monsey, N.Y., and part of a family that founded a line of clothing for Orthodox Jews, In 1953, the Academy Awards Nachman Glauber was studying were broadcast on TV for the at a rabbinical college nearby, said his cousin. first time.

Grunting zoo workers act as moms to gorilla

BY DAN SEWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI Some zoo workers in Cincinnati are going ape over a baby gorilla. They are wearing all-black outfits, grunting affectionately, and generally imitating mother gorillas to help the month-old baby adjust to a new home and get ready for a surrogate mother. Later, they will don hairy vests and carry baby Gladys on their backs, put on kneepads and gloves to move around like a gorilla, and they might knuckle-walk and climb a tree with baby on board. Even though some of Gladys mamas have beards and moustaches, they are trying to give her a mothers love, as much like a gorilla as they are able. They cuddle her, let her hang on them or squirm in their laps, lie down next to her and talk to her with different guttural sounds. Whatever a gorilla mom would do with her baby is what we have to do with this baby, said Ron Evans, the zoos primate team leader and BY PAULA SCHLEIS AKRON (AP) The first wedding attempt was in November. Jennifer Johnson and Jimmie Smith had planned some simple nuptials but ended up canceling because she needed a hysterectomy. The second attempt was scheduled for Feb. 25, but five days before they were to exchange their vows, a grease fire landed Johnson in the hospital with second and third degree burns on her left hand. The third time was the proverbial charm. Tired of things getting in the way, the Akron couple said I do before 40 friends and family squeezed into the chapel at Akron Childrens Hospital. Do you see how many obstacles keep getting thrown in the way? Johnson said when asked why she didnt want to wait for her discharge. Besides, weve both recently been baptized and we live together. We dont want to live in sin anymore. Hospitals have been known to host weddings before, but its a pretty rare occurrence at a childrens hospital. The Akron center is one of only two burn centers in the country that treat both adults and children.

DAYTON (AP) Walmart is rolling out solar power at a dozen Ohio stores. The giant retailer has installed solar power arrays atop the stores in a process thats been in the works during the past year. Theyll start producing power today. The Dayton Daily News reports that it will increase the state of Ohios total solar power generation by 10 percent. Walmart says the project makes it the states largest single solar power user. The solar panels sit on the rooftops of the stores and are not visible from the ground. The Walmart and Sams Clubs that installed the solar power systems are in Mason, Xenia, Greenville, Austintown, Middletown, Franklin, Youngstown, Toledo, Milford, Loveland, and two in Cincinnati. Walmart says there will be more such installations coming to Ohio.

Burn victim gets relief with Ohio hospital wedding

Spokeswoman Laurie Schueler said staff do remember a couple of instances where parents wanted to tie the knot by a sick childs bedside. But it was a first for the Rev.

Before the brief ceremony, the groom paced around the room waiting for his bride-tobe. Im as nervous as I can get, said Smith, 32. I wonder if theyre on their way? A few minutes later, two hospital staffers wheeled Johnson, 33, to the door of the chapel. She walked down the imaginary aisle, a nurse in tow pushing the IV unit attached to Johnsons leg. Guests sang do, do, da-do to the melody of Here Comes the Bride. Afterward, they cheered and rang small fingersized wedding bells and shouted, Welcome to the family.

Skeleton found in central Ohio is hospital patient

CINCINNATI (AP) Officials in Indiana and Kentucky are bracing for a loss in tax revenue after Ohios latest casino opens Monday in downtown Cincinnati. Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati is all but guaranteed to dip into Indianas casino revenues, which have been declining in the past few years. Cincinnatis casino represents money that Kentucky could be, but isnt, making. The casino will open Monday night after more than two years of construction. Its the last of four casinos in Ohio approved by voters in 2009. Casinos in Cleveland, Toledo and Columbus have all opened over the past year. They have brought in nearly $404 million combined. About $133.2 million in taxes from that revenue has gone to Ohio schools, counties and cities.

caught fire. Her first instinct was to carry the pan outside, but the draft from the door caused the fire to flare, burning her. While Smith was visiting Johnson in her hospital room, the pair were lamenting their bad luck in trying to get to the altar when a nurse mentioned the hospital had a chapel. We looked at each other and smiled, Johnson said. The bride wore a red sleeveless dress and carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations. Her hair was covered by the white veil that went with her wedding gown. They didnt attempt to put the wedding gown on, maid of honor Andrea Milhoan said, because it would have taken a long time and interfered with IV tubes and monitoring wires. But nothing interfered with the most important accessory of the day. While Johnsons left hand remains wrapped in gauze up to her elbow, her uninjured right hand now sports a sparkling diamond wedding ring.

COLUMBUS (AP) Police say a skeleton found behind a central Ohio warehouse over the weekend is that of a 64-year-old man who walked away from a hospital last spring. Police said Kenneth Whitfield was a patient at Ohio State Universitys Wexner Medical Center in Columbus when he disappeared May 18. The Pittsburgh-area resident hadnt been seen since. The Columbus Dispatch reports that a couple walking their dog just after 10 a.m. Saturday found the skeleton under a cluster of trees behind a warehouse in an industrial section of Grandview Heights. Police say they dont know yet what caused Whitfields death, but they do not suspect foul play. There was identification with the clothing, but the coroners office said it wanted to match dental records, too.

Spending cuts seem here to stay

By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press WASHINGTON The spending cuts are here to stay if you believe the public posturing Sunday. The Senates Republican leader Mitch McConnell called them modest. House Speaker John Boehner isnt sure the cuts will hurt the economy. The White Houses top economic adviser, Gene Sperling, said the pain isnt that bad right now. So after months of dire warnings, Washington didnt implode, government didnt shut down and the $85 billion budget trigger didnt spell doom. And no one has yet crafted a politically viable way to roll back those cuts. This modest reduction of 2.4 percent in spending over the next six months is a little more than the average American experienced just two months ago, when their own pay went down when the payroll tax holiday expired, McConnell said. I dont know whether its going to hurt the economy or not, Boehner said. I dont think anyone quite understands how the sequester is really going to work. And Sperling, making the rounds on the Sunday news shows, added: On Day One, it will not be as harmful as it will be over time. Both parties cast blame on the other for the automatic, across-the-board spending cuts but gave little guidance on what to expect in the comBy GARANCE BURKE and JUDY LIN The Associated Press ing weeks. Republicans and Democrats pledged to retroactively undo the cuts but signaled no hints as to how that process would start to take shape. Republicans insisted there would be no new taxes and Democrats refused to talk about any bargain without them. Thats not going to work, said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H. If were going to increase revenue again, its got to go to the debt with real entitlement reform and real tax reform when you actually lower rates. Im not going to agree to any more tax increases that are going to go to increase more government. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said any tax increases were unacceptable. Im not going to do any more small deals. Im not going to raise taxes to fix sequestration. We dont need to raise taxes to fund the government, Graham said. All of this comes ahead of a new, March 27 deadline that could spell a government shutdown and a debt-ceiling clash coming in May. Boehner said his chamber would move this week to pass a measure to keep government open through Sept. 30. McConnell said a government shutdown was unlikely to come from his side of Capitol Hill. The White House said it would dodge the shutdown and roll back the cuts, which hit domestic and defense spending in equal share. We will still be committed

Menendez was compelled to reimburse $58,000 for two flights aboard Melgens private jet that he had previously failed to report, prompting scrutiny by the Senate Ethics Committee. Menendez also acknowledged that his office had contacted U.S. health agencies in 2009 and 2012 to question their billing practices and policies amid a dispute between Melgen, an eye specialist, and federal health authorities. FBI agents in January searched Melgens offices in Florida and seized files as part of a criminal investigation. Menendez also raised concerns last year with State and Commerce Department officials about the Dominican Republics reluctance to enforce a port security contract with a company that Melgen partly owns.

Myriad languages, cultures challenge health reform

OAKLAND, Calif. Set on a gritty corner of Oaklands International Boulevard, the nonprofit Street Level Health Project offers free checkups to patients who speak a total of 22 languages, from recent Mongolian immigrants seeking a doctor to Burmese refugees in need of a basic dental exam. It also provides a window into one of the challenges for state officials who are trying to implement the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obamas sweeping health care overhaul. Understanding the law is a challenge even for governors, state lawmakers and agency officials, but delivering its message to non-English speakers who can benefit from it is shaping up as a special complication. That is especially true in states with large and diverse immigrant populations. For Zaya Jaden, a 35-yearold from Mongolia, getting free care for her sisters persistent migraine was a much higher priority than considering how the expansion of the nations social safety net through the Affordable Care By JULIE PACE The Associated Press Act might benefit her. The sisters crammed into the clinics waiting room, sandwiched between families chatting in the indigenous Guatemalan language Mam, and discussed whether enrolling in Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act would work for the familys finances. It was a good idea that Obama had, but I dont know if it will work for me, said Jaden, who gets private insurance for her family through her job as a laundress at an Oakland hotel and currently makes too much money to qualify for Medicaid. If I make less than what I make to try to qualify for the government program, how could I pay my rent? Jadens ambivalence demonstrates the cultural and language hurdles that California and several other states are facing as they build exchanges or health insurance marketplaces and try to expand coverage to ethnic and hardto-reach populations. California has the largest minority population of any state, about 22.3 million people. Thats followed by Texas with 13.7 million, New York with 8.1 million, Florida with 7.9 million and Illinois with 4.7 million. In Illinois, where nearly 1.2 million residents dont speak English well, the task of translating information about the health care overhaul into other languages has fallen to nonprofit groups and community organizations. So far its fallen to us, and we dont know what (the states) capacity will be to go beyond Spanish, said Stephanie Altman of Health and Disability Advocates. The state intends to submit an outreach plan to the federal government this spring. Illinois officials expect federal grant money eventually will be available to help reach non-English speakers, said Mike Claffey, a spokesman for Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. The U.S. Census estimates that more than 55 million people speak a language other than English at home. Nearly 63 percent of those are Spanish-speakers, with the highest concentrations in Texas, California and New Mexico. Chinese was the third most commonly spoken language, with large populations in California, New York, Hawaii and Massachusetts. Five other languages have at least 1 million speakers: Tagalog, French, Vietnamese, German and Korean.

to trying to find Republicans and Democrats that will work on a bipartisan compromise to get rid of the sequester, Sperling said. Senate Democrats and Senate Republicans last week put forward alternatives that would have avoided the cuts, but each side voted down the others proposals. The House Democrats proposed an alternative but the House Republicans did not let them vote on it. House Republicans twice passed alternatives last year. Obama has phoned lawmakers but it isnt clear to what end; the White House refused Sunday to release the names of lawmakers Obama phoned. Boehner and McConnell said they had a productive meeting with Obama on Friday, but it didnt yield a deal. Well, no one can think that thats been a success for the president, said Mitt Romney, Obamas unsuccessful rival in Novembers election. He didnt think the sequester would happen. It is happening. Obama and the Republicans have been fighting over federal spending since the opposition party regained control of the House of Representatives in the 2010 midterm elections. The budget cuts were designed in 2011 to be so ruthless that both sides would be forced to find a better deal, but they havent despite two years to find a compromise.

Obama nominates Wal-Marts Burwell as budget chief

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has tapped Wal-Marts Sylvia Mathews Burwell as his next budget chief, thrusting her into the center of Washingtons heated partisan budget battles and is filling vacancies at the Energy Department and Environmental Protection Agency, an official says. A White House official said Obama will announce Burwells nomination to lead the Office of Management and Budget during a White House ceremony today morning, a White House official said. If confirmed by the Senate, Burwell would bring more diversity to Obamas second term Cabinet following criticism that many top jobs were going to white men. Her nomination also signals that the White House is trying to get back to normal business after the president and Congress failed to avert the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts that started taking effect Friday. While the president has warned of dire consequences for the economy as a result of the cuts, the White House does not want the standoff with Congress to keep the president from focusing on other second term priorities, including filling out his Cabinet, as well as pursuing stricter gun laws and an overhaul of the nations immigration system. Obama also was set to announce his choice of MIT scientist Ernest Moniz to head the Energy Department and EPA veteran Gina McCarthy to run the EPA, said an official, who commented only on grounds anonymity in order to confirm the nominations ahead of Obamas formal announcement. The positions will require Senate confirmation. Burwell is a Washington veteran, having served as OMBs deputy director in the Clinton administration and chief of staff to former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin. She currently runs the Wal-Mart Foundation, the retail giants philanthropic wing, and previously served as president of the Gates Foundations Global Development Program. The White House official credited Burwell with being a principal architect of a series of budget plans in the 1990s that led to a budget surplus. Wal-Mart president Mike Duke called Burwell a strong leader with a clear vision for making big things happen. She understands business and the role that business, government and civil society must play to build a strong economy that provides opportunity and strengthens communities across the country, Duke said in a statement. Obama made quick work of filling key national security openings in his administration, but has been slower to fill other Cabinet-level openings, including the OMB post. Vacancies also remain at the Environmental Protection Agency, Commerce and Energy Departments, and the U.S. trade representative. Administration officials have blamed the slow pace of nominations on the arduous Senate confirmation process, which requires job candidate to submit to an intense and lengthy vetting process.

(Continued from page 1) meet and I was 100 percent this week. I was ready to go, he continued. Its bittersweet because this is the end of my high school career. I know a lot of wrestlers would have been happy to change places with me, even finishing seventh. One chapter closes for the senior but another will open in 2013-14. This is not the end of my wrestling career; I am planning on attending Mount Union and wrestling there, he added. I can focus more on that now. I know I have to get a lot stronger and more skilled to compete at college. His coach at Jefferson the last two seasons, Mike Wilson, was proud of the progress of his charge.

Burkes defensive plays help Michigan bounce back

By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich. It was exactly the type of game that John Beileins Michigan team had seemed incapable of winning. The Wolverines missed every 3-pointer they took and were stuck in a bruising struggle against a physical Michigan State team. Then, in the final minute, Trey Burke made perhaps Michigans biggest play of the season on defense. Burkes steal and dunk put the Wolverines ahead by two with 22 seconds remaining and fourth-ranked Michigan held on for a pulsating 58-57 win over No. 9 Michigan State on Sunday. Burke had 21 points and eight assists and kept the Wolverines from collapsing after they blew a 10-point lead in the final minutes. It would have been a shame to lose that one, said Beilein, Michigans coach. We havent had a lot of adversity this year and thats why its been magnified over this past month. Once ranked No. 1 in the nation, Michigan was coming off a stunning loss at Penn State on Wednesday night. The Wolverines also were trying to avenge a 75-52 defeat at Michigan State last month, when questions began in earnest about whether Michigan was tough enough for an extended postseason run. The perimeter-oriented Wolverines went 0-for-12 from 3-point range Sunday and had to pull out the victory by forcing turnovers and shutting down the Spartans for much of the second half. The Spartans (22-7, 11-5 Big Ten) had the ball with the shot clock off and the score 56-all but Burke stole it from Keith Appling near midcourt and went in alone for the games last field goal. After Michigan (24-5, 11-5) took the lead, Michigan States Derrick Nix was fouled with 8.8 seconds left but missed the first free throw. He made the second and the Spartans fouled Michigan freshman Mitch McGary, who missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Michigan State called a timeout with 4.9 seconds left but never got a shot off. Burke stole a pass by Gary Harris to end the game. The Michigan State loss clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title for Indiana. Michigan State had 19 offensive rebounds but the Spartans also turned the ball over 18 times. Michigan trailed 31-28 at halftime but the Wolverines asserted themselves quickly in the second half and led 52-42 when Burke made two free throws with 4:36 to play. The Spartans rallied, tying it at 56 when Appling made two free throws with 54.8 seconds remaining. After McGary stepped on the baseline, the Spartans had a chance to hold for the last shot but Appling lost the ball to Burke before Michigan State could even get a play going. The Spartans have lost three straight to Indiana, Ohio State and Michigan and their tough stretch isnt over. They face Wisconsin next. Adreian Payne had 17 points and Harris added 16 for the Spartans. Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas played only four minutes he didnt return after leaving with a cut over his left eye after a scramble for a rebound early in the game. Freshman Caris LeVert filled in for Stauskas and his layup in the final seconds of the first half cut the Michigan State lead to three. The Wolverines quickly pulled ahead at the start of the second, drawing three offensive fouls on the Spartans in the first 4:28.
the first half and three more keeping the Huskers at bay early in the second. Penn State (24-4, 14-2) improved to 6-1 against ranked opponents and secured its best conference record since going 15-1 in 2003-04. The Huskers (22-7, 12-4) were playing their last game at the Devaney Center, their home for 37 seasons. They move into a new downtown arena next season. Alex Bentley scored 13 points and Mia Nickson and Nikkie Greene 10 apiece for Penn State. No. 10 KENTUCKY 78, NO. 8 TENNESSEE 65 LEXINGTON, Ky. Adia Mathies scored 13 second-half points, including back-to-back 3-pointers during Kentuckys 19-6 run, to help the Wildcats pull away from Tennessee. Mathies, Kentuckys No. 2 career scorer, finished with 16 points in her home finale. Jennifer ONeill added four 3-pointers for 16 points as Kentucky (25-4, 13-3) claimed the No. 2 seed for this weeks Southeastern Conference tournament. Kentucky set the tone throughout but emerged from a 36-32 halftime lead with a big run set up by three steals and two rebounds by Samarie Walker (10 points). That put the Wildcats up 55-38 and they stayed safely ahead to make Matthew Mitchell the programs winningest coach with 139 victories. Regular-season champion Tennessee (23-6, 14-2) played without center Isabelle Harrison, who sustained a right knee injury Thursday. No. 9 MARYLAND 88, WAKE FOREST 61 COLLEGE PARK, Md. Tianna Hawkins scored 18 points, Alyssa Thomas added 16 and Maryland defeated Wake Forest to snap its first losing streak of the season. Coming off losses to Top 25 foes Duke and Florida State, the Terrapins (23-6, 14-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 38-22 at halftime and coasted to their 14th straight victory over the Demon Deacons (12-18, 5-13). Maryland will receive a firstround bye in the ACC tournament, which gets underway Thursday. The Terrapins, who won the event last year, will be seeded either second or third. Playing in her final regularseason home game, Hawkins grabbed 11 rebounds for her 13th double-double of the season and 37th of her career. The 6-3 senior forward leads the ACC in scoring and ranks second in rebounding. No. 11 GEORGIA 55, VANDERBILT 50 ATHENS, Ga. Jasmine Hassell scored 16 points and Georgia rebounded from a disappointing Southeastern Conference loss to beat Vanderbilt in each teams regularseason finale. Georgias shooters could only improve after shooting 18.2 percent in a 50-38 loss to Mississippi State on Thursday. The Bulldogs (24-5, 12-4) shot 35.8 percent (19-of-53) Sunday, though they only made 2-of-11 3-pointers. Erika Ford put Georgia up 15-13 with two free throws midway through the first half and the Bulldogs never relinquished the lead. Hassell added six rebounds and is averaging 15.4 points and 9.9 rebounds per game over her past seven. Jasmine James added 10 points and five assists for Georgia. Jasmine Lister paced Vanderbilt (19-10, 9-7) with 17 points and Tiffany Clarke added 13 points and nine rebounds. The Commodores will be the seventh seed in the SEC tournament and will play Thursday in Duluth, Ga. No. 12 DAYTON 73, SAINT JOSEPHS 66 DAYTON Andrea Hoover scored 19 points and Samantha MacKay added 18 points and seven assists as Dayton wrapped up its first Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season title by beating Saint Josephs. The Flyers (26-1, 14-0) set a record for victories since moving to Division I in the 1985-86 season. Both teams advanced

Jefferson senior Colin McConnahea controls Heaths Gunner Loughman during their 7th/8th-place 195-pound match Saturday afternoon. (Delphos Herald/June Orr) something like 6-25 but isnt satisfied with seventh Im not totally sure to 35 he doesnt take kindly to wins or so as a sophomore any loss but Im proud of and 48 or so as a junior and him, Wilson noted. this year, its a tremendous Mcconnahea grew the accomplishment. I know he list of state placers in the

14 years of the program at Jefferson to five, the first not named Miller or Swick. One characteristic of McConnahea is something Wilson likes to see out of all his wrestlers. He doesnt stay still; hes always pushing to score points. I dont have to worry about him stalling; hes aggressive and takes it right at his opponents, he added. You saw it even today: hes up four late in the third period and was still looking to pin his guy, even as some others might have been willing to coast. Thats what I want out of all my guys; keep attacking and pushing. Of course, there might be times to be more cautious, when it might be smarter to not be so aggressive, but generally, I want my guys to attack for all six minutes.

Lady Green crushes Knights in district finals

By JIM COX DHI Correspondent LIMA - After Crestview gave Ottoville all it could handle before losing 34-30 on Nov. 24, fans were expecting a barnburner of a rematch in Saturday nights Division IV district final. It was not to be. The Lady Green busted out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, winning 54-23. Top-ranked Ottoville (250) advances to the Elida regional where it will play Leipsic (17-8) in Thursday nights second game at approximately 8 p.m. The Lady Knights season ends at 22-3. Rachel Turnwald sparked that opening 14-0 run with three treys, while Ottovilles full-court pressure was wreaking havoc on the Knights ability to get the ball across mid-court. Crestviews Lindsey Motycka broke the string with a 15-foot baseliner but the Green answered with a 7-0 run to lead 21-2. Knight sharpshooter Mackenzie Riggenbach landed a triple from out front to make it 21-5 after one. The story of that quarter was nine Lady Knight turnovers and four Lady Green 3-pointers three by Turnwald and one by Nicole Vorst. There was no Ottoville let-up in the second quarter, starting with an 11-0 run, which came via an Annie Lindeman 3-pointer (the fifth and last Lady Green trey of the game), an Abby Siefker 3-point play, Siefker layup

The ball is where the action is Saturday night as four Ottoville girls Abby Siefker, Nicole Vorst, Haley Landwehr and Annie Lindeman and four from Crestview vie for possession in the Division IV Elida District finals. The Lady Green routed the young Lady Knights by 31. (Delphos Herald/Tina Eley) and another Siefker 3-point play. That made it 32-5 with 2:01 left in the half. Crestview freshman Emily Bauer stopped the run with a breakaway layup but Rachel Beining countered with a short buzzer-beating bank shot from in front. That made it 34-7 at the half. That first half could hardly have gone better for the Lady Green offense as they hit 12-of-24 field goal tries or the defense, which forced 14 Crestview turnovers and held the Knights to 3-of-13 field goal shooting. In probably five or six games this year, weve really come out hitting on all cylinders, said Ottoville coach Dave Kleman. Obviously, we didnt do that the first time we played Crestview. Our guards were role players the year before, so they had to grow into their roles as being the leaders on the team. Nicole Vorst, Rachel Turnwald and Taylor Mangas have grown into that role. Thats where weve made our improvement. They were hitting everything they were shooting, said Crestview coach Greg Rickard. We started out man. They were taking it inside, which we were afraid of. Then we went some zone and we didnt do a very good job of covering the perimeter. They hit some threes to the

36th straight CAA game. Hollie Mershon paced Drexel with 26 points but made just 11-of-30 shots. No. 19 COLORADO 66, OREGON STATE 63, OT CORVALLIS, Ore. Chucky Jeffery scored 25 points and Colorado rallied to beat Oregon State for the Buffaloes ninth win in a row. The Buffaloes (24-5, 13-5 Pac-12) trailed by 16 points in the first half and by 10 with 11:46 to play. But Jefferys 3-pointer began a 15-2 run that saw Colorado take the lead for the first time. Colorado led until Jamie Weisners 3-pointer with 9 seconds left tied it at 56. In overtime, Brittany Wilsons 3-pointer in the first minute put the Buffs ahead to stay. Arielle

Edwards ends long drought at Phoenix International

By JOHN MARSHALL The Associated Press AVONDALE, Ariz. Carl Edwards climbed from his car, stood on the door and landed a backflip near the finish line. He then hopped up on the wall in front of the grandstand, grabbed the checkered flag and waded into the crowd, trading high-fives with fans. After a miserable week at Daytona, Edwards had plenty to celebrate. That it came at Phoenix International Raceway only seemed fitting. Coming through on his promise to dominate after his Daytona disaster, Edwards pulled away on a late restart and snapped a 70-race winless streak on Sunday, the second long drought hes ended at Phoenix. This win feels as good or better as any win Ive ever had, Edwards said. Edwards had a rough 2012 season, missing the Chase for the Championship. His downward spiral continued at Daytona, where he wrecked five cars. On his way out of Florida, Edwards said he was ready to dominate and win at Phoenix. He did just that, leading the final 78 laps on the 312-lap race around PIRs odd-shaped oval in the first non-restrictor-plate race with NASCARs new Gen-6 car. Edwards got a good push from defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski on the restart with two laps left and pulled away from there, winning for the first time since Las Vegas in 2011. After parking his car at the finish line, Edwards landed his first backflip in nearly two years and celebrated with the fans just like he did at PIR after ending another 70-race winless streak in 2010. Im sure its a relief for someone like Carl, said Denny Hamlin, who finished third and had a long winless streak end at Phoenix last year. Hes now relevant to avoid, with video of the scrap-and-dash being shown all over in promos for the race and replays. Ryan Newman had the only dash this time around, running across the track and away from his car after it blew a right-front tire for the second time in 140 laps. Inside his car, Mark Martin failed in his bid to become the oldest Sprint Cup winner. The 54-year-old became the second-oldest driver to start on the pole in a Sprint Cup car, a few months short of Harry Gants mark. Martin led the first 49 laps and 26 more later on but couldnt sustain it in his bid to become the oldest Sprint Cup winner, finishing 21st. Obviously, its a disappointing result for a great effort on the weekend, Martin said. The car was pretty fast but we had multiple problems today. So did Danica Patrick, who had a rough follow-up to her breakthrough week at the Daytona 500. Patrick became the first woman to win a pole and lead green-flag laps during NASCARs season opener, sending her popularity to a new level. But she couldnt stay with the leaders at Phoenix, ending her day with one of the hardest hits of her career. It happened with about 100 laps left, when the right-front tire on Patricks No. 10 Chevrolet went down and slammed her into the wall. Patricks car careened back into David Ragan, flipping her hood over the windshield and shredding the left front fender as protective

Robersons two free throws with 6 seconds left ended the scoring. Roberson finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds eight on the offensive glass. Ali Gibson scored 15 points and Weisner had 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Beavers (1020, 4-14). Colorado is the No. 4 seed in the Pac-12 tournament next weekend. VIRGINIA 72, No. 24 FLORIDA STATE 60 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Faith Randolph scored a careerhigh 19 points and Simone Egwu had 17 points and 11 rebounds as Virginia ended a 5-game losing streak by defeating Florida State in the teams regular-season finale. The Cavaliers (16-13, 8-10 Atlantic Coast Conference)

overcame a 22-point performance by Florida States Alexa Deluzio, whose six 3-pointers tied her career high. Natasha Howards threepoint play gave the Seminoles (21-8, 11-7) their final lead, 55-53 with 5:42 left but the Cavaliers ran off the next seven points. Randolphs 3-pointer put them ahead to stay, 58-55, at the 4:14 mark and they pulled away with 10-for-10 free-throw shooting in the final 2 minutes. Ataira Franklin scored 18 points for Virginia, which will be seeded sixth and play Thursday at the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C. Leonor Rodriguez scored 14 points for fourth-seeded Florida State, which has a bye into Fridays quarterfinals. No. 25 PURDUE 76, ILLINOIS 65

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Courtney Moses scored 21 points, leading four Purdue players in double figures, and the Boilermakers defeated Illinois. Drey Mingo scored 18 and Sam Ostarello and KK Houser had 12 points apiece. Ostarello had nine rebounds while Houser contributed seven rebounds and eight assists for Purdue (218, 10-6 Big Ten). It was the regular-season finale for both teams; the Big Ten tournament begins Thursday in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The Boilermakers took control with a 13-0 run midway through the second half that gave them a 60-50 lead. Karisma Penn had 23 points and eight rebounds to lead the Illini (16-12, 9-7). Adrienne GodBold scored 18 points and Ivory Crawford scored 11.

point we had to go back man and take our chances. On defense, they have a really nice press. It was both a good press and our lack of execution. Although there was no doubt about the eventual outcome, the second half was a totally different story, Ottoville winning both the third and fourth quarters but barely: 10-8 and 10-8. Crestview actually won the second-half rebounding battle 11-7 but continued its field goal shooting struggles (5-of-17) while the Lady Green stayed hot (7-of-10). Crestview sub Terra Crowle had all eight of the Knights fourth-quarter points, including two 3-pointers. For the game as a whole, Ottoville outshot Crestview from the field by a wide margin 56 percent (19-of-34) to 27 percent (8-of-30). The Lady Green had fewer turnovers, 15-23. Rebounds were even at 18 apiece. Ottoville hit only 11-of-19 free throws (58%), while Crestview was a solid 4-of-5 (80%). Siefker, Turnwald and Beining led Ottoville scoring with 15, 15 and nine. Crowle led Crestview with 8. Although the Lady Knights appeared to be devastated afterwards, Rickard was not. We just talked in the locker room, he added. I told them You dont appreciate it now but youre gonna look back and know what a great season you had. Especially as young as we are to win 22 games, win the league undefeated, get to the district final, which is hard to do in Northwest Ohio. Its just unfortunate we had to play the number one team in the state. It was a fantastic year that we had and for the younger kids, this is a great experience for the future. It was the final game for Cresviews lone senior, Mariah Henry. With everybody else returning next season and most of them the year after that the future looks bright for the Lady Knights.

again; he really is and its a good sign for their race team for things to come. The big duel came behind Edwards. Despite struggling with his car most of the day, Hamlin made a bold move on the last lap with a pass on the apron below the dogleg. He popped up alongside Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson and the two dragraced to the finish, where Johnson edged him by a few inches. Keselowski, who was outside Johnson during Hamlins move, finished fourth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended up fifth. The last Phoenix race, in November, set up Keselowski for his first Sprint Cup title after Johnson blew a tire. It also featured quite a sideshow. A running feud between Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon boiled over late in the race, setting off a brawl in the pits and Bowyer on a WWE-style dash to Gordons hauler. The drivers tried to downplay the confrontation after arriving in the desert this week but its been hard

foam from the drivers side door flew onto the track. She came to a stop along the inside wall with a trail of debris covering about half the home straightaway behind her. She climbed from the car and was quickly cleared by the medical center. Whenever those rightfronts go, they always hit hard because you dont broadside, you hit more straight on, said Patrick, who finished 39th. It took a hard hit both sides and Im fine, so NASCAR is doing a good job at safety. But no real good warning. The car wasnt all that tight and most of the (problems) were in the rear, so there was no real vibration that told me that was going to happen. Edwards set himself up for this victory with a latenight call to new crew chief Jimmy Fennig, knocking on his door around midnight Saturday to go over some last-minute details. For race morning, Edwards went for a hike to clear his mind and focused. It paid off, ending two years of frustration and selfdoubt that grew as the streak grew.

By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press NEW YORK LeBron James stretched his arm above the rim, soaring high on a shaky knee and turning his steal into a finishing dunk as Carmelo Anthony hung his head near midcourt. The Heat took the Knicks best shot but it wasnt good enough to beat the defending champs. Nothing is right now. James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists and Miami tied a franchise record with its 14th straight victory, rallying for a 99-93 victory at New York on Sunday. We feel like this is one of our better wins of the season, even under the circumstances that we went through tonight, a little adversity being down double digits, James said. Dwyane Wade added 20 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the Heat, who had to overcome a 16-point deficit to beat the Knicks for the first time in three tries this season. Chris Bosh bounced back from a dismal first half to finish with 16 points and Shane Battier hit all four 3-point attempts to score 12. The Heat won their sixth straight on the road by controlling the final minutes against a team that had a pair of 20-point victories over them this season and looked ready to run them out of the building again. But James shook off a third-quarter leg injury and was back in top form by the finish, putting it away by coming up with a steal and throwing down a dunk with 23 seconds left. Obviously, its great to win games, period. But when youre on a win streak, youve got to find many different ways to win ballgames and weve had comebacks in the last seconds, weve had double-overtime games, but this was probably the most thrilling one, Wade said. It was the most challenging. For a team who beat us twice, they handled us twice and they were up 16 in the first half, for us to have the resilience to come back, find a way fight out this win, it was great. Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points for the Knicks, who had won three in a row. Jason Kidd emerged from a lengthy slump to finish with 14 points, eight rebounds and six assists. J.R. Smith had 13 points and 12 rebounds but shot 5-of-18 from the field. I think we are disappointed because we had an opportunity to win a ballgame here at home against the champs, Kidd said. So its something we can look at and get better at with those mistakes, especially later in the game. The Heat matched their 14 straight wins during the 2004-05 season and finally beat one of their closest pursuers in the Eastern Conference after dropping their first four against the Knicks and Indiana Pacers. James landed awkwardly when he was fouled trying to catch a lob pass in the third quarter and was trying afterward to loosen his left knee or leg. He looked fine in the closing minutes, making key plays on both ends of the floor. His motor is limitless. I dont want to take that for granted. I dont just want to assume that he can play 40-plus minutes but he had to do it on both ends, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Couldnt get him out in the fourth quarter and if I would have tried, he probably would have strangled me. He was strong and was at his strongest after 40 minutes of basketball. Bosh tied it at 87 and Wades basket with 4:29 left gave Miami the lead for good. James then blocked Tyson Chandler at the rim and hustled down the floor to put back a Miami miss, making it 91-87. The Knicks twice were within two but James scored on a drive the second time. Bosh followed with a jumper for a 97-91 advantage and after two free throws by Raymond Felton, James ended the Knicks final hopes when he stepped in front of a pass headed toward Anthony and broke in alone for the slam. Knicks beat Miami here by 20 in their season opener and won again in Miami in early December by 20, even while playing without Anthony because of a cut on his finger that required stitches. This looked headed for another blowout. Kidd missed his 14 3-point attempts in the last three games and had been in a 7-for-49 slump behind the arc since Feb. 1, finally losing his starting job before Fridays victory at Washington. But he made a 3 early in the second quarter, then hit three more in the period. The Knicks rattled off eight points in a row to make it 59-43, their only concern coming when Anthony went to the locker room before the half ended with what the team said was pain in his ribs. He was back when the second half started and added the injury didnt bother him. The Knicks two victories over the Heat came during their 18-5 start, when they seemed championship capable. But they are just 17-16 since and Miamis a far different team now than it was in December. Bosh had eight quick points in the third quarter after a 2-point, 1-of-6 first half. Miami scored the last six of the period, cutting it to 77-73 on Battiers 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds to go. Miami finally caught up at 79-all when James nailed his second straight 3-pointer, stomping his feet forcefully as he walked away following the second with 10:04 to play.

The Associated Press PRO HOCKEY DETROIT The Chicago Blackhawks cant be beat, in regulation at least, because they can roll four lines of forwards, play three pairs of defensemen and put one of their two good goaltenders in net. And, they have Patrick Kane. Kane scored with 2:02 left in the third period and had the only shootout goal, helping Chicago beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 Sunday and extend its NHLrecord, season-opening points streak to 22 games. The Blackhawks have had 12 players score game-winning goals with Marian Hossa leading the way with three of them and Kane becoming one of three players with a pair of victory-clinching scores. Chicago has earned at least a point in 28 straight games dating to a March 25, 2012, loss in regulation to Nashville to tie the second-longest streak in league history. The Blackhawks have matched Montreals multi-season points run from the 1977-78 season and trail only Philadelphias streak of 35 straight games with at least a point during the 1979-80 season. Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32 saves to help Chicago win a ninth straight game. PRO BASKETBALL WASHINGTON Ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un doesnt want war with the United States. He just wants President Barack Obama to call him. Rodman, the highest-profile American to meet Kim since Kim took power in December 2011, says Obama and Kim share a love

of basketball, so lets start there. Rodman is just back from a visit to North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and spent two days with Kim. The State Department on Friday distanced itself from Rodmans visit. PRO FOOTBALL FLORHAM PARK, N.J. Lauren Silbermans NFL tryout lasted all of two kicks, neither of which traveled 20 yards. Silberman became the first woman to compete at an NFL regional scouting combine on Sunday but left the New York Jets practice field after re-injuring her quadriceps. She tried two kickoffs, the first going 19 yards and the second about 13 yards, and then asked to see a trainer. As more than two dozen media, including E! Entertainment network, watched her every move, the 28-year-old Silberman was examined off to the side of the practice field. About 30 minutes later, while 36 other kickers continued their workouts, she called the scene surreal and thanked the NFL for this tremendous opportunity. GOLF PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Michael Thompson won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Honda Classic to earn another trip to the Masters. Thompson seized control with a 50-foot eagle putt on the third hole. He stayed in control with superb par saves early on the back nine at PGA National. He made birdie from the bunker on the last hole for a 1-under 69, giving him a 2-shot victory over Geoff Ogilvy. SINGAPORE American Stacy Lewis won the HSBC

Womens Champions on Sunday for her sixth career LPGA title, overcoming two bogeys and some shaky putting on the back nine to hold off South Koreas Na Yeon Choi.

Los Angeles Angels slugger Mike Trout figures if he keeps producing like he did during his historic rookie season, hell be in line for a handsome raise soon enough. The Angels renewed the contract of the AL Rookie of the Year for $510,000 on Saturday, just $20,000 above the major-league minimum, prompting an angry response from Trouts agent. While Craig Landis said the renewal falls well short of a fair contract, Trout took the high road before a morning workout at the Angels spring training complex on Sunday, repeatedly insisting that Im just happy to be in the lineup. DETROIT The Detroit Tigers say reliever Brayan Villarreal is not expected to leave spring training after his family escaped unharmed from a kidnapping attempt in Venezuela on Friday night. Villarreal has remained with the team. Manager Jim Leyland did not want to comment further about the matter, saying Sunday: The less said, the better. TAMPA, Fla. Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki said he had no soreness Sunday, one day after being involved in a traffic accident. Suzuki was on his way home after Saturdays spring training

THUNDER 108, CLIPPERS 104 LOS ANGELES Kevin Durant scored 35 points, Russell Westbrook had 29 points and 10 assists and Oklahoma City held off a late rally by Los Angeles in a matchup of two of the Wests best teams. Serge Ibaka added 16 points as the Thunder ended a 3-game road skid, bouncing back less than 48 hours after losing at Denver. They also completed a season sweep of Los Angeles, which is chasing Oklahoma City and NBA-best San Antonio out West. Chris Paul scored 26 points and Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford added 20 apiece for the Clippers, whose 4-game winning streak ended with their third loss to the Thunder this season. LAKERS 99, HAWKS 98 LOS ANGELES Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter and hit the go-ahead layup with 9 seconds left, leading the Lakers back to .500 for the first time in more than two months. Steve Blake stole Josh Smiths final pass in the waning seconds for the Lakers (30-30), who blew a 16-point lead in the second half before Bryant scored their last six points. After Bryant scored the Lakers final basket while driving directly at Smith, Blake swiped Smiths desperation pass from underneath Los Angeles basket. Bryant threw the ball high in the air to run out the clock on Los Angeles seventh straight home victory over the Hawks since 2006. Al Horford scored 24 points and Smith had 19 for the Hawks. PACERS 97, BULLS 92 INDIANAPOLIS David West scored 31 points and George Hill added 21, leading Indiana past Chicago in a Central Division showdown. The Pacers (38-22) have won seven of their last eight games, going 6-1 since the All-Star break, and hold a 4-game lead over second-place Chicago. The Bulls were led by Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler, who each had 20 points for a team that was missing four important players with injuries. Chicago fell behind late in the first quarter and spent most of the rest

of the game trying to play catch-up. The Bulls finally tied the score at 72 on Luol Dengs 8-footer early in the fourth and again at 80 when Butler made two free throws with 7:04 left. SPURS 114, PISTONS 75 SAN ANTONIO Manu Ginobili scored 17 points, Tim Duncan had 16 and 11 rebounds and San Antonio routed Detroit despite playing without All-Star point guard Tony Parker. Danny Green added 16 points and Kawhi Leonard had 14 for the Spurs (47-14), who rolled to their most lopsided victory of the season in their first game since Parker was injured. Greg Monroe scored 16 points and Jose Calderon 14 for Detroit. The Spurs had 35 assists on 45 field goals. Making his first start of the season, Cory Joseph had eight points, four assists and one turnover in place of Parker, who sprained his left ankle in Fridays win over Sacramento and is expected to miss about a month. ROCKETS 136, MAVERICKS 103 HOUSTON Chandler Parsons scored a career-high 32 points on 12-for-13 shooting and Houston snapped a 9-game losing streak to Dallas. Jeremy Lin and James Harden added 21 points apiece and Lin had nine assists for the Rockets. O.J. Mayo scored 18 points and Shawn Marion had 14 to lead the Mavericks, who dropped six games behind Houston for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Houston broke open a close game in the third quarter, outscoring Dallas 44-17. The Rockets hit 14-of-20 shots and converted six Mavericks turnovers into 14 points. GRIZZLIES 108, MAGIC 82 ORLANDO, Fla. Tayshaun Prince had 14 points and Marc Gasol added 12 points and 11 assists as Memphis cruised to a victory over Orlando. The Grizzlies, who have won nine of their last 10 games, led by as many as 32 points and had six players in double figures. It was their first of five straight games against teams with losing records. Memphis played without forward Zach Randolph, who rested the left ankle he sprained in Fridays loss to Miami. Arron Afflalo and ETwaun Moore each scored 12 points to lead a Magic team that has lost 17-of-19 on its home floor. Orlando is 4-31 since Dec. 20. WIZARDS 90, 76ERS 87 WASHINGTON John Wall scored the final six points of the game after teammate Bradley Beal left the court with an apparent injury, leading Washington past Philadelphia. Beal went down with a sprained ankle with 2:08 left in the fourth quarter. After being attended to by a trainer, he was carried off the court and through the tunnel by two teammates, keeping weight completely off both his legs. Wall scored the next four points to give the Wizards an 88-87 lead, blocked Evan Turners shot with 53 seconds left and added a jumper with 4.4 seconds left. Wall finished with 16 points and six assists as the Wizards snapped a 2-game skid and avoided their longest slide in the last month. Dorell Wright scored 15 points to lead the 76ers. KINGS 119, BOBCATS 83 SACRAMENTO, Calif. John Salmons scored 22 points and Jason Thompson had 18 points and 14 rebounds to lead Sacramento over slumping Charlotte. Marcus Thornton also scored 18 points for the Kings, who made 13 3-pointers in halting a stretch of seven losses in eight games. DeMarcus Cousins had 14 points, Tyreke Evans added 13 and Isaiah Thomas had 10 points and seven assists. The Kings closed the first half with nine straight points, then opened the third quarter with a 10-0 run to extend their lead to 64-40. The advantage exceeded 40 points several times in the second half and was Sacramentos most lopsided victory this season. Byron Mullens and Gerald Henderson each scored 12 points for the Bobcats. Charlotte, which has lost five straight, was outrebounded 60-31 and shot 36 percent.

Giant Slayer scares up $28M debut

By CHRISTY LEMIRE The Associated Press LOS ANGELES It wasnt exactly a mighty victory, but Jack the Giant Slayer won the weekend at the box office. The Warner Bros. 3-D action extravaganza, based on the Jack and the Beanstalk legend, made just $28 million to debut at No. 1, according to Sunday studio estimates. It had a reported budget of just under $200 million. But the studio also hit a milestone on the global front with Peter Jacksons fantasy epic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey crossing the $1 billion mark worldwide. The first of three films based on the classic J.R.R. Tolkien novel has made $301.1 domestically and $700 million internationally. Jack the Giant Slayer comes from Bryan Singer, director of The Usual Suspects and the first two X-Men movies. It stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Ian McShane and Stanley Tucci. Among other new releases, the college romp 21 & Over from Relativity Media made only $9 million this weekend to open in third place. And the horror sequel The Last Exorcism Part II from CBS Films debuted in fourth place with just over $8 million. Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. executive vice president of theatrical distribution, said Jack the Giant Slayer opened lower than the studio had hoped, but hes encouraged by its CinemaScore, which was a B-plus overall and an A among viewers under 18. One bit of good news for Jack is that it had a 56-percent uptick from Friday to Saturday, suggesting strong word-ofmouth and more family audiences for the PG-13 adventure. That tells us that the audiences that are seeing it really do like it, Goldstein said. The international opening in Asia has been very strong the 3-D component of the special effects works in a big way outside the domestic marketplace. Jack the Giant Slayer made $13.7 million in 11 international territories for a worldwide total of $41.7 million. Internationally, A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth film in the blockbuster Bruce Willis franchise, was the big winner of the weekend with $18.3 million for a global total of nearly $222 million. Domestically, this is the sixth weekend in a row that movie ticket sales are down, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood. com. He pointed out that many of the action pictures aimed at men this year including Snitch, The Last Stand, Bullet to the Head and Parker have been disappointments at the box office. Other films have done OK but we need to do better than OK to keep up with last years pace, he said. Where is the audience? I dont want to overstate this, but where are the guys? Among the few bright spots, the Jason BatemanMelissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief has become the first film to cross the $100 million mark this year. Now in its fourth week in theaters, the Universal movie has made $107.4 million. This is a tough marketplace right now. Everything is underperforming, Dergarabedian said. There hasnt been a huge breakout hit yet. For every Identity Thief there have probably been 10 other films that have underperformed. Meanwhile, winners at last weekends Academy Awards, including Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and Life of Pi, are still sticking around in the top 20 after several months in


First lady: Not surprised by reaction to Oscars

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE The Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) Michelle Obama says it was absolutely not surprising to her that her satellite appearance at the Academy Awards ceremony provoked a national conversation about whether it was appropriate, after some conservative critics accused her of selfishly crashing the event in an attempt to upstage it. She attributed the chatter to a culture shift that has spawned legions of bloggers, tweeters and others who talk about anything and everything all the time. Shoot, my bangs set off a national conversation. My shoes can set off a national conversation. Thats just sort of where we are. Weve got a lot of talking going on, the first lady said only somewhat jokingly Thursday before an appearance in Chicago, her hometown. Its like everybodys kitchen-table conversation is now accessible to everybody else so theres a national conversation about anything. In what was not the first-ever Oscar appearance by a first lady, Mrs. Obama was beamed live from the White House into Sundays ceremony in Los Angeles to unseal the envelope and announce that the nights final award, for Best Picture, would go to Argo. In 2002, Laura Bush appeared at the ceremony on videotape. Americans have long been fascinated by their first ladies, scrutinizing everything from their clothes and hair to the issues they promote and how they raise their children. Mrs. Obama acknowledged that she and President Barack Obama have added appeal, and perhaps sometimes are subject to extra scrutiny, because they are the first black family in the White House but also a young couple (she turned 49 last month; hes 51) with young

theaters, further underscoring the weakness of recent new releases. But Dergarabedian was optimistic that things will turn around with the opening next week of Disneys Oz the Great and Powerful, a muchanticipated prequel to The Wizard of Oz starring James Franco and directed by Sam Raimi. Its expected to open in the $75-100 million range. We need the cavalry to arrive and we need them soon, he said. Maybe James Franco is the cavalry. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Final domestic figures will be released today: 1. Jack the Giant Slayer, $28 million. 2. Identity Thief, $9.7 million. 3. 21 & Over, $9 million. 4. The Last Exorcism Part II, $8 million. 5. Snitch, $7.7 million. 6. Escape From Planet Earth, $6.7 million. 7. Safe Haven, $6.3 million. 8. Silver Linings Playbook, $5.9 million. 9. A Good Day to Die Hard, $4.5 million. 10. Dark Skies, $3.6 million.

children (daughters Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14). She said she doesnt give a second thought to critical comments about what she does as first lady. Her strategy, she said, is to do things that further her larger goals and Oscar night fit with her support for the arts. She recently invited the director and cast members from the Oscar-nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild to the White House to participate in a question-andanswer session with students from Washington and New Orleans who had seen the film at the executive mansion.

Keloids that are surgically removed sometimes return

Youll have the best results if you start treatment soon after the keloid appears. Available treatments include: -- Conventional surgery. Keloids return in nearly half of patients when they are removed surgically -- and these keloids may be larger than the original. Combine surgery with other treatments to reduce this possibility. -- Dressings. Moist wound coverings made of silicone gel sheets may reduce the size of keloids over time. This treatment is safe and painless. -- Corticosteroid injections. These can often reduce keloid size and irritation, but the injections are uncomfortable. -- Compression. A bandage or tape is used to apply continuous pressure 24 hours a day for six to 12 months. Compression can cause a keloid to shrink. -Cryosurgery. This freezes the keloid with liquid nitrogen, but the treatment can cause skin color to lighten. -- Radiation therapy. This is controversial because radiation increases the risk of cancer.

shoulder that makes me very self-conscious. Are there treatments other than surgery? DEAR READER: Keloids are raised overgrowths of scar tissue that usually appear at the site of a skin injury. They are harmless and do not become cancerous. But once a keloid develops, it wont go away unless it is removed or treated. Unfortunately, none of the existing treatments give completely satisfying results. Whats more, keloids that have been removed or treated often return. Keloids usually occur where trauma, surgery, blisters, vaccinations, acne or body piercing have injured the skin. Some people are prone to keloid formation and may develop them in several places. Keloids appear most commonly on the shoulders, upper back and chest. They are shiny, smooth and rounded, and may be pink, purple or brown. Keloids can be doughy or firm and rubbery to the touch. They often feel itchy, tender or uncomfortable. (Ive put a photograph of keloids

alternative to conventional surgery. But keloids are just as likely to return after laser therapy as they are after regular surgery. The two mysteries about keloids are: (1) Why do some people form keloids when their skin is cut, such as during surgery (Im one of them), whereas other people do not; and (2) what stimulates the cells at the site of injury to grow in excessive numbers? Im optimistic there will be future diagnostic tests that can predict whether a person is likely to form a keloid after surgery. Im also optimistic that we will figure out the chemical signals that encourage overgrowth of skin cells -and figure out treatments that neutralize those signals and stop keloids from forming.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013 A temptation to make some new changes in your basic lifestyle could be prevalent in the year ahead. As long as your plans arent unrealistic or impractical, all should work out quite well. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Nothing worth bragging about is likely to be accomplished if you are too wishy-washy. In fact, your inability to make up your mind could drive everyone crazy. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Dont get so carried away by how well others are doing that you forget to concentrate on furthering your own abilities. Try to focus only on your own efforts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just because a certain tactic works well for a friend doesnt necessarily mean that it will for you. Experiment to find your own game plan and then stick to it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Steer clear of any involvement in which you have no say in the decision-making. Plans made entirely by others might not be best for your interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -It wont take you long to lose points with others if you dont hold yourself accountable for your mistakes. This will be especially true if you put the blame everywhere but on yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Wasted time will become a critical factor in hampering your productivity. The chances for accomplishing your aims will be in direct proportion to the time you spend dilly-dallying. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If you and your mate are facing a difficult decision, try to work it out yourselves instead of discussing it with outsiders, especially in-laws. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In order to spare the feelings of another, you might rework the facts. Sadly, when the truth comes out, it will only anger the person whom you wanted to help. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -When it comes to people who helped you acquire something that you badly wanted, of course you should share the rewards. Just dont feel obligated to make a payoff to those who did nothing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There is a chance that one of your well-intentioned gestures might produce some unintended and unpleasant effects, causing others to have difficulty in discerning your motives. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Under most conditions you are a rather determined person. However, friends could talk you into doing things that you know you shouldnt, causing you much guilt later. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A lot of disappointment is possible if you base your expectations on unrealistic premises. Make it a point to try to see things for what they are and not as you wish them to be. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2013 This could be a very interesting year where your earnings are concerned, but dont leave anything to chance. If you put forth the effort and you handle things properly, you could end up making more money than ever. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you employ a little elbow grease, something you desperately want could come within your grasp. However, dont rely on Lady Luck to do everything for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Lucky you: You have a very dependable friend who will come to your aid when you need it the most. Your pal will help out quietly, but dont let that stop you from showing your gratitude. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your brain will be like a sponge, enabling you to absorb whatever knowledge you need. Youll use it advantageously, to boot. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- One of your best assets is your ability to fit well into others projects, making your input and presence an integral part of the whole. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Youve done your best to continuously improve your negotiating skills. This will become evident when an agreement needs hammering out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Someone you helped in the past has been eager to find a way to repay you in some manner. What he or she ends up doing will be worth more than your original act. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Something quite pleasant as well as a bit extraordinary is likely to develop through the good offices of certain contacts. What transpires will have far-reaching effects. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The life span of a rewarding endeavor can be expanded if you seize the opportunity. However, it may take a bit of cooperation from a few of your associates. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If there is something important that you want to discuss with another, the best place to do so would be in a social setting. However, try to lead up to the subject gradually. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Something that could enhance your material interests might develop. It could be quite surprising, but dont waste time being shocked -- act on it immediately. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Some good news that youve longed for might finally arrive. If this is the case, chances are itll come sometime after lunch. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Instead of trying hard to make things happen, youd be wise to let events take their natural course. Besides, youre likely to do better when youre not in the drivers seat. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Cardinals begin pre-conclave meetings amid scandal

BY NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY Cardinals from around the world gathered today inside the Vatican for their first round of meetings before the conclave to elect the next pope, amid scandals inside and out of the Vatican and the continued reverberations of Benedict XVIs decision to retire. The Vatican said 103 of the 115 electors had arrived, while the other dozen are en route. The dean of the College of Cardinals has said a date for the conclave wont be set until all cardinals have arrived. Among the first orders of business was the oath of secrecy each cardinal made, pledging to maintain rigorous secrecy with regard to all matters in any way related to the election of the Roman Pontiff. The college of cardinals also agreed to send Benedict XVI a message on behalf of the group the text was being worked on. The core agenda item is to set the date for the conclave and set in place procedures to prepare for it, including closing the Sistine Chapel to visitors and getting the Vatican hotel cleared out and de-bugged, lest anyone try to listen in on the secret conversations of the cardinals. The first day of discussion was again rocked by revelations of scandal, with Scottish Cardinal Keith OBrien admitting that he had engaged in sexual misconduct not befitting a priest, archbishop or cardinal. OBrien last week resigned as archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh and said he wouldnt participate in the conclave after four men came forward with allegations that he had acted inappropriately with them the first time a cardinal has stayed away from a conclave because of personal scandal. Separately, the Vatican is still reeling from the fallout of the scandal over leaked papal documents, and the investigation by three cardinals into who was behind it. Italian news reports have been rife with unsourced reports about the contents of the cardinals dossier. Even if the reports are false, as the Vatican maintains, the leaks themselves confirmed a fairly high level of dysfunction within the Vatican bureaucracy, with intrigues, turf battles and allegations of corruption, nepotism and cronyism at the highest levels of the church hierarchy. In one of his last audiences before resigning, Benedict met with the three cardinals who prepared the report and decided that their dossier would remain secret. But he gave them the go-ahead to answer cardinals questions about its contents. Another topic facing the cardinals is the reason theyre here in the first place: Benedicts resignation and its implications. His decision to end 600 years of tradition and retire rather than stay on the job until death has completely altered the concept of the papacy, and cardinals havent shied from weighing in about the implications for the next pope.

House, debris over Fla. sinkhole to be removed Hearing set for Las Vegas
BY TAMARA LUSH The Associated Press SEFFNER, Fla. Authorities hope to get a better look at a sinkhole that swallowed a man in his Florida home once demolition crews knock down the remaining walls of the house Monday and begin clearing away the debris. Crews on Sunday razed more than half the home, managing to salvage some keepsakes for family members who lived there. The opening of the sinkhole has been covered by the home, but once emergency officials and engineers can see inside it more clearly, they could begin planning how to deal with it. They also need to decide what will happen to the two homes on either side of the now-demolished house. Experts say the sinkhole has compromised those homes, but its unclear whether steps can be taken to save them. Jeremy Bush, 35, tried to save his brother, Jeff, when the earth opened up and swallowed him Thursday night. On Sunday morning, Bush and relatives prayed with a pastor as the home where he lived with his girlfriend, Rachel Wicker; their daughter, Hannah, 2; and others was demolished and waited for firefighters to salvage anything possible from inside. The home was owned by Leland Wicker, Rachels grandfather, since the 1970s. The operator of the heavy equipment worked gingerly, first taking off a front wall. Family belongings were scooped onto the lawn gently in hopes of salvaging parts of the familys 40-year history in the home. As of Sunday afternoon when demolition had stopped for the day and only a few walls remained a Bible, family photos, a jewelry box and a pink teddy bear for Hannah were among the items saved. Firefighters also were able to pick out the purse of one of the women in the home. Wanda Carter, the daughter of Leland Wicker, cradled the large family Bible in her arms. She said her mother and father had stored baptism certificates, cards and photos between the pages of that Bible over the years. The search for Jeff Bush, 37, was called off Saturday. He was in his bedroom Thursday night in Seffner a suburb of 8,000 people 15 miles east of downtown Tampa when the ground opened and took him and everything else in his room. Five others in the house at the time escape unharmed as the earth crumbled. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office is conducting the investigation. Detective Larry McKinnon said the sheriffs office and the county medical examiner cannot declare Bush dead if his body is still missing. Under Florida law, Bushs family must petition a court to declare him deceased. The area around Seffner is known for sinkholes due to the geography of the terrain, but they are rarely deadly. No one from longtime public safety officials to geologists could remember an incident where a person was sucked into the earth without warning.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Its 1 a.m. and the sprawling airport in this desert city is bustling. Enough languages fill the air to make a United Nations translators head spin. Thousands of fliers arrive every hour from China, Australia, India and nearly everywhere else on the planet. Few venture outside the terminal, which spans the length of 24 football fields. They come instead to catch connecting flights to somewhere else. If it werent for three ambitious and rapidly expanding government-owned airlines Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways they might have never come to the Middle East.

Ammar Harris, 26, a self-described pimp, was arrested Thursday in Los Angeles, ending a weeklong manhunt that began after the Feb. 21 shooting and crash that killed three people and injured five others. Authorities allege Harris was driving his black Range Rover SUV when he fired at least five shots into a Maserati sports car, killing Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr., a rapper who called himself Kenny Clutch. The two men had argued minutes earlier in a casino valet area, police said. After Cherry was struck, the Maserati careened into a taxi that exploded in a spectacular fireball at Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, one of the most famous neon-lit crossroads in Las Vegas. The cab driver and his passenger were killed. A passenger in the Maserati was shot in the arm, and four people in four other vehicles were hurt, none seriously, in the chain-reaction crashes. Three women were in the SUV with Harris. The crash closed the Strip for about 15 hours while police investigated. Two days later, police located the SUV parked at an apartment complex near the crash scene, triggering the multi-state search for Harris. Authorities obtained a warrant for his arrest on murder, attempted murder and shooting charges. Armed with an arrest warrant for three murder counts, law officers arrested Harris at an apartment in Los Angeles Studio City area, hours after police found the last of the women who were with him in the SUV. Harris is a convicted felon in South Carolina who shows fists full of money on Internet posts and boasts of a highrolling lifestyle with prostitutes in Miami and Las Vegas.

making this region the new crossroads of global travel. The switch is driven by both the airports and airlines, all backed by governments that see aviation as the way to make their countries bigger players in the global economy. Passengers are won over by their fancy new planes and top-notch service. But the real key to the airlines incredible growth is geography. Their hubs in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are an eighthour flight away from twothirds of the worlds population, including a growing middle class in India, China and Southeast Asia that is eager to travel. In the past five years, the annual number of passengers traveling through Dubai International Airport home to Emirates has jumped from 28.8 million to 51 million, a 77 percent increase. The airport now sees more passengers than New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport.
