When life gives you snow ...

By ANDREW DeMILLO The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas now has the nation’s most restrictive abortion law — a near-ban on the procedure from the 12th week of pregnancy — unless a lawsuit or court action intervenes before it takes effect this summer. Lawmakers in the R e p u b l i c a n - d o m i n a t e d Legislature defied Gov. Mike Beebe, overriding the Democrat’s veto. The House voted 56-33 on Wednesday to override Beebe’s veto, a day after the Senate voted to do the same. The votes come less than a week after the Legislature overrode a veto of a separate bill banning most abortions starting in the 20th week of pregnancy. That bill took effect immediately after the final override vote, whereas the 12-week ban won’t take effect until this summer. Abortion rights proponents have said they’ll sue to block the 12-week ban from taking effect. Beebe warned lawmakers that both measures would end up wasting taxpayers’ money with the state defending them in court, where, he said, they are likely to fail. The measures’ supporters, See ARKANSAS, page 2

Pizza robber pleads guilty, sent to prison
BY ED GEBERT DHI CORRESPONDENT VAN WERT — The Van Wert man charged with holding up Klosterman’s Pizza in Van Wert on Oct. 24 pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of robbery, a felony of the third degree, Wednesday morning. Kyle Caldwell admitted to the crime and was immediately sentenced to the maximum 36 months in prison followed by 663 days of post-release control by Van Wert County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles D. Steele. The postrelease control time was still in effect after his last prison sentence. Caldwell had been accused of walking into Klosterman’s with a handgun while covering the lower part of his face with a bandana. He reportedly pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register before reaching into the drawer himself and taking it before running out. No one was hurt in the robbery. Caldwell had originally been charged with aggravated robbery — a charge which could have put him in prison for ten years. Also in court Wednesday, Sam Geckle, 44, Convoy pleaded guilty to fourth-degree felony attempted having weapons under disability, a reduced charge. Geckle faces up to 18 months in prison at his April 17 sentencing hearing. Nicholas Devecchio, 27, Van Wert, entered a guilty plea to a pair of fifth-degree felony heroin trafficking charges. The charges were reduced from fourth-degree felony counts. At that point Devecchio requested and was granted treatment in lieu of conviction. The charges could be dismissed after Devecchio completes a treat(Continued from page 1)

College won’t block female genital photos


Dogs unearth human remains in northeast Ohio

CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati says it won’t interfere with an outdoor display of female genitalia photos on campus. The college’s LGBTQ Alliance and UC Feminists say the 12 photos of vaginas are meant to cause discussion aimed at discrimination and exploitation of women’s bodies. The project called Re-envisioning the Female Body also wants to counter an anti-abortion demonstration on campus last year. Critics of the temporary display planned Thursday and Friday have complained it is pandering obscenity and could be viewed by young children. University President Santa Ono says in a statement that UC is an academic community where ideas and images are analyzed and debated, however controversial and complex they might be. He also says the school is a public institution obligated to protect the First Amendment.

Ohio seeks guidance on storage caverns
By LISA CORNWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Ohio is seeking federal guidance on regulating underground caverns storing liquid propane and other liquid hydrocarbons after propane vapors were detected near a storage facility in southwest Ohio, saying if the response is inadequate, the state will seek authority to regulate them itself. State and local officials say no problems have developed from vapors detected last year in a monitoring well at an industrial landfill near the storage terminal in Monroe in Butler County, but the director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources says such caverns need to be regulated to ensure public safety. ODNR Director James Zehringer sent a letter last week to the U.S. Department of Transportation asking whether federal regulatory authority over hazardous liquids pipelines extends to liquid propane stored in underground caverns. Ohio has five facilities with non-natural gas storage caverns around the state that appear to be unregulated, according to Zehringer. “This apparent lack of authority to regulate these storage caverns is a concern for us, given our mission to protect the people of Ohio,” he wrote. Zehringer said such caverns should be regulated on some level, but Ohio needs clarification from the Transportation Department before developing any state regulations. He also wants to know whether federal officials are opposed to states developing their own authority to regulate the caverns and whether other states do that. ODNR spokeswoman Bethany McCorkle told The Associated Press that the state agency will “aggressively” pursue legislation to provide Ohio with the regulatory authority, if the federal government doesn’t regulate the caverns. The Transportation Department’s Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration did not immediately return calls for comment. The vapors in Butler County were detected near the storage terminal of Enterprise Products Partners, a Houston-based energy company that delivers products including propane used

ing, and other factors. An even larger issue is the water needed to grow the feed that livestock eat. Researchers for the 2006 FAO report “Livestock’s Long Shadow” report that 2,400 liters of water go into the production of one hamburger, while only 25 liters are needed to produce a potato. Likewise, a cheese pizza requires 1,200 liters of water—given the grass-fed beef. According to Postel, it takes some 5,300 liters of fresh water for every dollar’s worth of grain fed to a typical beef cow, while the water required to feed grassfed cattle falls on the pasture from the sky, meaning it is free and does not deplete groundwater reserves at all. “Not all burgers are created equal,” she says. Postel adds that another

“This apparent lack of authority to regulate these storage caverns is a concern for us, given our mission to protect the people of Ohio.”
ODNR Director James Zehringer wrote in a letter to the US. DOT for fuel for home heating and industrial purposes. Enterprise spokesman Rick Rainey says propane is the primary product in the caverns mined out of shale. It is withdrawn or injected, according to customers’ needs, and can be delivered through a pipeline or loaded onto trucks from the caverns. While no definitive link has been found between the vapors and Enterprise’s facility, Enterprise and state and local officials have taken precautions to protect area residents from any possible problems. Rainey said the company first learned that vapors had been detected at another company’s industrial landfill in November. Enterprise drilled test wells on its property and a few detected vapors were removed. Officials from the state fire marshal’s office and the Butler County Emergency Management Agency joined company officials in December to inform the public about precautions including distribution of propane detectors to nearby homes and a school. The county EMA’s operations manager, Matt Haverkos, said homeowners living within a mile of the storage facility were contacted and propane detectors provided by Enterprise were installed in buildings with basements with help from local fire departments. Since propane is heavier than air, homes most susceptible to a possible gas leak would be those with basements or active or capped water wells inside them. About 75 of the devices, which are similar to smoke detectors, were installed, and residents were told to evacuate and call 911 if they went off. “We’ve had no reports of any problems,” Haverkos said.

YOUNGSTOWN (AP) — Police say dogs have unearthed a human skull and jawbone in a northeast Ohio neighborhood, and the search is on for other human remains. Youngstown police Lt. Douglas Bobovnyik said investigators believe the jawbone and skull found last month are part of the same skeleton, but they have not been able to confirm it. The (Youngstown) Vindicator reports that since the initial discoveries were made by neighborhood dogs, investigators are considering attaching GPS devices and using the dogs to locate other remains. Police cadaver dogs trained in searching for decomposing human flesh have been brought in, but had no success. Investigators are waiting on the coroner’s office to try to make an identification based on the skull.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: I heard that my food choices can affect the use and therefore availability of fresh water around the world. How so? — Denise Beck, Washington, DC Our food choices and the availability of fresh water are inextricably linked. The crux of the problem is that human population numbers keep growing—we recently topped seven billion people worldwide—yet the amount of fresh water available remains finite. And growing food and raising livestock to feed increasing numbers of humans takes a great deal of water. Worldwide, some 70 percent of fresh water is used for agriculture. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that, by 2050, two-thirds of the people on the planet will lack clean water to meet even basic needs. According to the Vegetarian Resource Group, the livestock industry is the largest user of fresh water in the U.S. and in many other countries. The billions of livestock animals raised for food around the world each year consume substantial amounts of water directly. The industry also negatively impacts the replenishment of fresh water through the compaction of soil, the degradation of banks along watercourses, the clearing of forests to expand graz-

Eliminating meat consumption would be a surefire way to save vast amounts of fresh water, and switching to a vegetarian or vegan diet is one way an individual can make a big impact on water consumption. “On average, a vegan, a person who eats no meat or dairy, indirectly consumes nearly 600 gallons of water per day less than a person who eats the average American diet,” reports Sandra Postel, director of the Global Water Policy Project and the lead water expert on the National Geographic Society’s Freshwater Initiative. But those loathe to giving up meat entirely should consider switching to only way to cut down on one’s water footprint would be to give up or cut back on coffee: One cup takes some 55 gallons of water to make, with most of used to grow the coffee beans. Choosing organic food can also help keep an individual’s indirect water consumption in check. Organic farming techniques conserve water both by using less, increasing the waterholding capacity of soils and reducing erosion as well as by not polluting nearby water bodies with run-off from synthetic chemical inputs.

TOLEDO (AP) — Put the quarters away. People parking at downtown Toledo meters can now pay by making a phone call or scanning a code with their smartphones. The 955 downtown parking meters in the city will now display a sticker with a phone number and a code to connect with a contractor handling pay-by-phone transactions. Users will also be able to scan a QR code on the meters that will open to a website to take credit-card payments. The Blade newspaper reports that city officials expect it will benefit people whose downtown business or errands last longer than their parking time and want to avoid $10 parking tickets. There is a 35-cent fee for the phone transactions, on top of the parking charges.

Outdoors Inside
By DALE SUNDERLIN The Associated Press

Critters, critters everywhere!
More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released this spring at 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds. The first release was last Friday at Adams Lake in Adams County, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Rainbow trout releases will take place through May 3, and the stocking of these public lakes and ponds are excellent opportunities for families to fish together. Fishing for catchable-sized trout is a great way to introduce young people to the outdoors. Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and are 10-13 inches before they are released by the ODNR Division of Wildlife. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout. Some locations will feature special angler events, including youth-only fishing, on the day of the scheduled trout release. Contact the nearest wildlife district office for specific information. Additional information about trout releases is available at or by calling 800-WILDLIFE. Anglers age 16 and older must have an Ohio fishing license to fish state public waters. The 2013-14 fishing license is available now and is valid through Feb. 28, 2014. An annual resident fishing license costs $19. A one-day fishing license costs $11 for residents and non-residents. The oneday license may also be redeemed for credit toward the purchase of an annual fishing license. Ohio residents born on or before Dec. 31, 1937, may obtain a free fishing license where licenses are sold. Persons age 66 and older who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1938, and have resided in Ohio for the past six months are eligible to purchase the reduced-cost resident senior license for $10. Sales of fishing licenses along with the Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) program continue to fund the operation of the ODNR Division of Wildlife’s fish hatcheries. No state tax dollars are used for this activity. This is a user-pay, user-benefit program. The SFR is a partnership between federal and state government, industry and anglers/boaters. When anglers purchase rods, reels, fishing tackle, fish finders and motorboat fuel, they pay an excise tax. The federal government collects these taxes, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers and disburses these funds to state fish and wildlife agencies. These funds are used to acquire habitat, produce and stock fish, conduct research and surveys, provide aquatic education to youth and acquire and develop boat accesses. Coyote. What to do? This is the breeding season for coyotes so your chance of seeing one now are probably greater than any time during the year. So what should you do? In my opinion go get a gun and shoot the suckers. To me the only good yote is a dead yote. But in the interest of safety here are tips from the Ohio division of Wildlife. Ohio wildlife biologists are frequently contacted by concerned residents who spot coyotes. Yes, frequent-

ly, but this is not cause for alarm. Coyotes are highly adaptable animals that are regularly viewed by humans throughout the state. Here are a few steps to keep in mind when you encounter a coyote in the Buckeye State: 1. Understand that coyotes are common throughout Ohio’s 88 counties and are even regularly seen within city limits. Read more about coyotes at www.wildohio. com . 2. There are no wolves living in the wild in Ohio. 3. If you spot a coyote on your property, make sure to remove all “attractants” to deter the coyote from returning. This includes removing garbage and pet food before nightfall and cleaning up around the grill. 4. Coyotes prey primarily on small mammals such as rabbits and mice. However, interactions with domestic pets do occur sometimes. Keep small dogs and cats inside or leash them when outside. 5. Occasionally, an inquisitive coyote will stay put and watch you curiously. Clap your hands and shout; the coyote will likely move on at this point. 6. If the coyote visiting your yard does not respond to harassment techniques such as loud noises or is presenting a conflict even after removing attractants from your yard, contact a nuisance trapper. You can locate a trapper on our website at For a fee, these nuisance trappers use highly regulated techniques to reduce urban wildlife conflicts. Coyote populations in rural areas can be managed through legal hunting and trapping methods. Consult the yearly “Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations” digest for more information.

Nutrient management is a critical topic for anyone involved in agriculture. A concern is the wise use of nutrients to maintain agricultural production levels while protecting water quality. Paulding County OSU Extension and the Paulding County Farm Bureau will sponsor a Nutrient Management Seminar program for anyone who buys, sells or manages manure or uses fertilizer on March 18 on the county fairgrounds. Registration and a light dinner will be available beginning at 6 p.m. with introductions at 6:30 p.m. Speakers for the Paulding County Nutrient Management Seminar include Senior Director of Policy Development and Environmental Policy with the Ohio Farm Bureau Larry Antosch and owner and consultant with Nester Ag Joe Nester. This seminar will focus on managing nutrients that are being applied to the ground and setting up a basic nutrient management plan. Antosch will cover the high phosphorous level that has caused the harmful algae bloom in Grand Lake Saint Marys and is also an issue on Lake Erie. He will look at the importance of the 4Rs, Impact of Nutrients on Water Quality, The Benefits of Using Manure as a Nutrient and its Role in Water Quality, Voluntary Action versus Regulatory Action and Developing Trust with the Public Regarding this Issue. Nester will promote the Use of Best Management Practices (BMPs), Availability of Cost Share Programs to Address this Specific Issue and How to set up a Basic Nutrient Management Plan for Your Farming Operation. The cost of the program is free to Ohio Farm Bureau members and $5 for non-members. RSVP by calling 419-523-5874 or by email at by March 13. Continuing Education Units for Certified Crop Advisors are being applied for.

(Ed Lentz, Hancock County Extension Educator provided the following article on marketing and crop inputs.) Farmers in our area have been fortunate that they beat the odds in getting a decent crop even after the wet spring of 2011 and the drought of 2012. Long range weather predictions for 2013 have been all over the board depending on what climatologist is speaking that day. Besides the uncertainty of the weather this year, farmers are also aware of the initial crop forecast by the USDA, which predicts at this time a record corn and soybean crop for 2013 and an average at best wheat crop. The record corn and soybean outlook is based on the assumption that the weather will be good for crops in 2013. Farmers have been getting respectable grain prices since 2007, which may have peaked in 2012. The drought, low inventories, and strong grain demand provided record prices in 2012. However, if the USDA outlook is correct, farmers can expect a two to three dollar reduction in grain prices per bushel this fall for corn and soybeans, which may be the beginning of a steady drop in grain prices. In other words the boom may be over. With the drop in grain prices, the USDA projects farm income will drop one third in areas that grow corn, soybean, and wheat. Most of the counties in our area are usually in the top ten counties for corn, soybean, and wheat production in Ohio. Reduction in income will most likely be seen in the purchase of equipment and expansion of operations, such as trucks, tractors and combines, structures such as grain bins, or crop land. Land rental rates may have to be adjusted as a result. If true, land sale prices and farm land rental rates may have reached there peak at this time. For now though, inputs costs for farmers have not dropped. Production costs have risen over 12 percent for the past two years. OSU Extension Budgets show projected variable (cash) costs for corn, soybean, and wheat production to be 4 percent, 6 percent and 2.5 percent higher, respectively in 2013 versus 2012. These same budgets show that higher prices and higher costs point to another risky production year as the cash investment in an acre of corn will top $400 (exclud-

ing land, machinery and labor costs) and in some production scenarios, it will be closer to $450 per acre. The cash investment in an acre of soybeans or wheat will be in the $200 - $260 range. Major items in annual input costs include seed, fertilizer and fuel. It is predicted that seed corn prices this year will rise 5 - 7 percent and a greater percentage increase in soybean seed. Crop protection chemical prices will see similar increases except glyphosate (Roundup), which has seen a 50% increase in price for many of the different glyphosate products. Small increases are expected in nitrogen fertilizer prices, but prices are down for phosphorus and potash. However, many factors may affect fertilizer prices this year including the speed that new facilities begin production, natural gas prices, navigability of the Mississippi River, and the world economy in general. Diesel prices are projected to be less than 2012 but propane (used for drying grain) will be higher than 2012. However, fuel prices are difficult to estimate. The federal government policy is still up in the air. The most recent Farm Bill expired in 2012 but parts were extended through this year’s growing season with the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. In general, the Farm Bill establishes many of the financial risk boundaries for farmers in crop subsidies, crop insurance, and market development. In the past, many farmers would have been forced out of business from the type of drought that was experienced in 2012. However, government policy allowed them to survive the natural disaster by supported crop insurance and financial safety nets. Thus, government policy in the Farm Bill often affects whether farmers are able to stay in business after tough years. It does not appear that the new US Congress will have a new Farm Bill in the near future – causing uncertainty in future markets and farm programs. Farmers may be asked to sign up for programs under the extension without knowing the details in a more long term Farm Bill. Farmers should watch the changing drought and moisture conditions in the Midwest. If moisture conditions improve, grain yields are expected to increase and grain prices expected to decline. If the drought lingers in the Midwest, grain prices may stay high. Farmers should be closely monitor this situation and plan to market crops accordingly.

Biosecurity at the farm level is a management tool to help prevent the movement of disease-causing agents onto and off of farm operation. Biosecurity therefore involves many aspects of farm management, such as disease control and prevention, nutrient management and visitor control. Although controlling and limiting the movement of livestock is recognized as the most important biosecurity measure for most diseases, many important hazards can be carried on contaminated clothing, footwear, equipment and vehicles. All visitors need to understand the possible risk they present when entering a farm, what a farmer expects from them, and what precautions need to be taken between farms that are visited. This applies to anyone entering or leaving the premises who may be visiting other livestock operations, and not just those of the same species or commodity type. Visitors can unknowingly bring harmful agents onto a farm via contaminated clothing, footwear, equipment and vehicles. Equipment used to repair buildings and machinery, to treat or handle animals, and to carry out testing or procedures are all potential sources of contamination. The risk is increased with visitors who regularly go from farm to farm as part of their employment or routine. Such individuals, businesses and organizations are encouraged to develop and follow a biosecurity plan. All visitors, farm owners, and their employees have a shared responsibility in biosecurity. Visitors need to be aware of that farm’s level of biosecurity and follow their recommendations. Visitors must be prepared to accept all reasonable directives from the farmer when visiting his or her operation. In many swine operations, for example, showering in and out of facilities is a requirement. Farmers and their employees also have a responsibility to prevent hazards from leaving the premises. Wear clean clothing and footwear when leaving the farm, particularly if visiting other farms, feed supply agencies, veterinary facilities or auction markets. All visitors to a livestock facility should make an appointment so that all parties are aware of the biosecurity protocol and any special measures that must be taken. As the primary producers of food, farmers and all involved in agriculture are expected to do their part, using new knowledge and technology to continuously improve food supply safety and maintain and improve animal health. Biosecurity can play a key role for the entire food production chain.

The 2012-13 JIM METCALFE OHSAA Wrestling State Tournament is come and gone. Every year, it amazes me at how quickly and smoothly it seems to run and how much more competitive it seems to get year after year. I know, the usual suspects: Lakewood St. Edward’s in Division I and St. Paris Graham — with the Jordan legacy in full force — in Division II; always seem to do pretty well. But it seems as if more and more schools are sending athletes down to participate, especially in the smaller schools. Just to even get there is an incredible achievement. Let’s fact it; with the way these bodies get contorted — I am surprised more shoulders, elbows and other parts of the human body that weren’t made to go THAT way don’t get ripped out of their sockets — wrestling is not for the faint of heart and it takes a lot of guts to even be out there. Kudos to Jefferson’s trio of seniors that got there: Colin McConnahea, who finished seventh, Geoff Ketcham and Quinten Wessell; and St. John’s senior Will Buettner. They were all disappointed they couldn’t do better and finish higher — unless you win, I’d imagine EVERY wrestler is somewhat disappointed — but you have to be at your ultimate best mentally AND physically; if you are even slightly off, those guys down there will make you pay. Now that Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco signed the NFL’s richest contract, he will really feel the pressure. After all, he will be paid more than the acknowledged top quarterbacks of this time: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, etc. Hey, Brady even took an extension less than the “market” in order to allow the Patriots to keep his personal “security blanket” in Wes Welker and make sure he has enough weapons to vie for Super Bowls until he’s 40. There’s the rub: public perception is what this is all about: Brady will still get his moolah at some point. The same thing with Flacco: he is an elite quarterback but he isn’t perceived that way. He has had his moments where he would be fantastic and then have games where you scratch your head and wonder what was going through his thick head. However, those are fewer and farther between. This contract will mean that they can’t happen at all. If they don’t keep some of the other key parts of that offense, like Anquan Boldin, that may not be as easy as he thinks. Fans aren’t going to cut him any slack: the potential argument that he doesn’t have the weapons around him won’t cut it because part of the reason is his big, fat contract. “He should have done a “Tom Brady” and sacrificed his wallet for the team,” fans will utter in disgust. There’s perception again. Or imagine if he gets hurt —- Ouch! The you-knowwhat will really hit the fan! For your own sake, Joe, don’t get hurt! Or at least don’t tell anyone about it, even if you have to tape it up and go back in there! Say it ain’t so, Joe(y). Reds first baseman Joey Votto decided to play for Team Canada at the World Baseball Classic. The traitor! I hope the Reds trade him for a 12-pack of beer, the bum! Just kidding. He played for them in 2009. How many other majorleaguers are playing for other countries, proving once again that baseball is a global sport? Hey, International Olympic Committee —- hint, hint, wink, nod —— It belongs in the Olympics!! The only thing that you do NOT want to see — especially as a Reds’ fan — is for him to get hurt. Remember, he is coming off an injury and surgery to his left knee. Go USA!!

The Associated Press CHICAGO — Daniel Carcillo scored the tiebreaking goal with 49.3 seconds left and the Chicago Blackhawks won their 11th consecutive game, beating the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Wednesday night to extend the best start in NHL history. Jonathan Toews and Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago (21-0-3), which reached the halfway point of a lockout-shortened season without losing in regulation. The remarkable Blackhawks have earned at least one point in their first 24 games, an NHL record. Dating back to last year’s regular season, the streak is 30 games. The Blackhawks broke the previous team record for consecutive wins with their 10th in a row Tuesday night, 5-3 over Minnesota. Chicago’s overall points streak is the second-longest during one season in NHL history. The 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers set the league record at 35 games with a 25-0-10 run. John Mitchell and Matt Duchene scored for Colorado, which has lost six of seven. The Blackhawks improve to 10-0.
DUCKS 2, COYOTES 0 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jonas Hiller faced only 18 shots in his first shutout of the season, Corey Perry scored in the first period and Anaheim beat Phoenix for its ninth consecutive victory at home. The teams met for the third straight time in a five-day span, following a pair of 5-4 shootout victories by the Coyotes in Phoenix on Saturday and Monday. The Ducks have the second-best record in the NHL at 16-3-3 and still trail the astounding Chicago Blackhawks by 10 points. Anaheim’s start is tied for the best in franchise history after 22 games. The team began its 2006-07 Stanley Cup championship season 15-2-5. Jason LaBarbera made 22 saves for Phoenix, one of them on a penalty shot by Andrew Cogliano. Ryan Getzlaf scored into an empty net with 21 seconds to play. MAPLE LEAFS 5, SENATORS 4 TORONTO — Phil Kessel had a goal and two assists to help Toronto hold off Ottawa in a game highlighted by a knockout punch from Frazer McLaren. Only 26 seconds into the latest installment of the Battle of Ontario, the Toronto tough guy decked Dave Dziurzynski when he caught the Ottawa forward flush with a right to the chin, sending him face down to the ice. A woozy Dziurzynski was slow getting up and eventually needed help from two teammates to skate off. Dziurzynski did not return, and the Senators said he had a concussion. He logged a total of 3 seconds in his 10th NHL game. Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk each had a goal and an assist for the Maple Leafs, who won their third straight. They built leads of 3-0 and 5-2 before Ottawa scored twice in the final 8 minutes. Jay McClement and Nazem Kadri also scored for the Maple Leafs. James Reimer made 39 saves in his sixth consecutive victory. Mika Zibanejad, Zack Smith, Daniel Alfredsson and Colin Greening had the goals for Ottawa, which lost its fourth in a row and dropped to 3-7-2 on road. The Senators are 9-1-2 at home. FLAMES 4, SHARKS 1 CALGARY, Alberta — Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves in his return from a knee injury to lead Calgary over San Jose. Blake Comeau scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period. Jarome Iginla, Roman Cervenka and Curtis Glencross (into an empty net) also scored for the Flames, who improved to 4-1-1 in their last six games. Joe Thornton had the only goal for the Sharks, who are 2-6-1 in their last nine. Kiprusoff, who began his NHL career with the Sharks 12 years ago, returned to the lineup after missing 13 games with a sprained knee. Calgary went 6-5-2 during his absence. Comeau’s first goal this year was just his second in the last 41 games, dating to last season.

James hits winner, Heat top Magic for 16th in row
By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press MIAMI — After a 16th straight win was safely in the books for the Miami Heat, Shane Battier pulled on a pair of jeans, chatted for a few minutes and walked into the night. Forgive him for not being impressed. Battier was part of a team that won 32 straight in his college days at Duke and he appeared in each of the 22 consecutive wins that the Houston Rockets posted in 2008. And while those were magical rides, neither team finished those seasons with a title. “We have bigger goals … something greater than this,” Battier said. That’s why there wasn’t much of a locker-room celebration for the Heat on Wednesday night, not even after LeBron James drove the lane for a layup with 3.2 seconds left to help Miami pull off a late scramble and beat the Orlando Magic 97-96, extending their franchise-record winning streak. Miami led by 20 points early in the third quarter, then blew all of that lead and more, having to rally from a five-point hole in the final minutes. “This is tough,” Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said after his team fell to 0-2 against Miami this season — the two losses by a total of three points. “You’ve got guys who battled, who really wanted to win this game and deserved to win this game.” Ultimately, Orlando was doomed by two plays — James getting the last basket and Battier taking another away from the Magic. James missed a pair of 3-pointers about 90 seconds earlier, so he went for the 3-footer instead. From the right wing, James drove diagonally through the lane then used his left hand — after all, he is left-handed — for the basket that won it for Miami. It was the first time he came up with what became a winning basket in the final 5 seconds of a game since a 3-pointer beat the Magic in the 2009 playoffs, according to STATS LLC. Dwyane Wade scored 24 points on 10-for-16 shooting — he’s shooting 62 percent in his last seven games — and Chris Bosh added 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who blew a 20-point, second-half lead and then rallied from a 5-point deficit in the final minutes. Nik Vucevic had 25 points and 21 rebounds for the Magic, who got 16 points apiece from Jameer Nelson and Tobias Harris, 13 from Arron Afflalo and 12 from Maurice Harkless. “They’re one of the best teams in the NBA, if not the best and we gave it our all,” Harris said. “They knew that. It’s just a matter of a couple of seconds that could have changed the game. It’s a tough loss for us but it’s the right step in the right direction.” Vucevic now has two games of 20 rebounds or more in his career — both this season, and both against Miami. He had a 20-point, 29-rebound effort in a loss to the Heat on Dec. 31. But he was one of three Magic players to foul out in the final minutes as Orlando let a golden chance go awry. Nelson hit a jumper with 1:36 left, giving the Magic a 96-93 lead. James missed two 3-pointers on the next Miami possession and on the ensuing Orlando trip, Harris drove from the left baseline but his basket was waved off, with Battier beating him to the spot and drawing an offensive foul, Harris’ sixth of the night. “Shane is defined by winning plays,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He just continues to make them.” Miami tried for the tie twice on the next trip but Wade and Ray Allen missed 3-pointers. Bosh was fouled on a rebound — the sixth on Vucevic, making him the third Orlando player to reach the limit in the final minutes. Bosh made both free throws to get the Heat within one with 38 seconds remaining. Al Harrington missed a wild 3-pointer and James got the rebound to seal the stop Miami desperately needed. So with 12.6 seconds left, the Heat got the ball and a chance to win. Spoelstra had told referees that if Miami got a stop, the Heat did not want a timeout. One was whistled anyway and Spoelstra said that referees apologized for the miscommunication afterward. No matter — the play got set up, the ball went to James and he delivered in the clutch. Orlando had no timeouts and only managed a 3-point try by Afflalo from near midcourt as time expired. The foul discrepancy in the game — 30 for the Magic, 17 by Miami — was a hot topic in the Orlando locker room afterward. The Magic went 10-for-12 from the foul line, Miami 27-of-31. Even with all that, James needed to deliver.
NOTES: James was in double figures for his 200th straight regularseason game with the Heat, extending his franchise record. … Vaughn played against Miami 30 times in his career, his teams going 15-15. … The Heat have honored a military member who has returned home from a tour of duty in Iraq or Afghanistan before games in Miami for the past several seasons. Their honoree on Wednesday: Army 1st Sgt. Darrell Williams, who returned just two weeks ago from serving a tour in Afghanistan — and is the first cousin of Bosh’s wife, Adrienne Bosh. LAKERS 108, HORNETS 102 NEW ORLEANS — Kobe Bryant scored 13 of his 42 points during a 20-0 run in the last 6:22 of the fourth quarter, helping Los Angeles overcome a 25-point deficit to fend off New Orleans.

it 93-72,and even after the Lakers had whittled their deficit to 12, the Hornets were up 102-88 after Robin Lopez’s dunk with 6:47 to go. But the Hornets would not score again and Bryant began to take over with a big assist from Jodie Meeks, who hit two of his five 3-pointers during the final surge to finish with 19 points. Dwight Howard had 20 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks for Los Angeles. Bryant also had 12 assists. Eric Gordon had 18 points, Vasquez added 15 points and Al-Farouq Aminu grabbed 16 rebounds for New Orleans. CELTICS 83, PACERS 81 INDIANAPOLIS — Kevin Garnett found Jeff Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, giving Boston the victory over Indiana. Garnett led the Celtics with 18 points and 10 rebounds and dragged Boston back after it trailed most of the final three quarters. Green had 11 points off the bench. Paul George scored 16 points for the Pacers, who had all five starters in double figures. David West added 11 points and 16 rebounds and George Hill finished with 14 points. SPURS 101, BULLS 83 SAN ANTONIO — Tim Duncan had 18 points and 10 rebounds and San Antonio beat Chicago in a matchup of teams missing their starting All-Star point guards. Manu Ginobili added 18 points and nine assists, Tiago Splitter had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard scored 14 points for San Antonio, which was playing its second game without Tony Parker. Patty Mills provided a needed punch off the Spurs’ bench, scoring 10 of his 13 points in the second half. Parker is expected to miss about four weeks with an ankle sprain and Derrick Rose has yet to play for Chicago this season after undergoing major knee surgery. Marco Belinelli had 21 points, Luol Deng added 19, Marquis Teague had 11 and Carlos Boozer 10 for the Bulls. CAVALIERS 104, JAZZ 101 CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving scored 20 points and made all the big plays down the stretch, rallying Cleveland to the victory over Utah.

Villanova tops No. 5 Georgetown 67-57
By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Jay Wright couldn’t escape the buzz at his radio show of a potential NCAA tournament bid for Villanova. No, not from anxious Wildcats’ fans and callers. From the TV stuck on a sports channel in the middle of his broadcast. “It came up on the screen that we were the last four in,” said Wright, Villanova’s coach. “I was like, ‘We’re in?’ You see it all the time.” Wright could see it for real when the bracket is announced next week. Going 3-for-3 at the Wells Fargo Center against top-5 teams sure has bolstered the Wildcats’ credentials. JayVaughn Pinkston scored 20 points to help Villanova beat a top-5 team for the third time this season, 67-57 over No. 5 Georgetown on Wednesday night. The Wildcats (19-12, 10-8 Big East) also beat then-No. 5 Louisville and then-No. 3 Syracuse and have put themselves in solid shape for at least an NCAA tournament at-large bid. All three wins over top-5 teams came at the Wells Fargo Center, the site of tournament games the first weekend. The Wildcats may not play in March at their off-campus home but they expect to be chasing the championship somewhere. “I would think given where everything is right now, we would be,” Wright said. “We also know we’re close enough that things could happen, too.” Villanova students stormed the court after the first two wins and security lined the baseline again Wednesday. With students on break, only a few fans made the dash. That gave the Wildcats the chance to head behind the basket and salute the ones who stuck around. The Wildcats beat thenNo. 17 Marquette to improve to 4-2 against Top 25 teams. That’s put the Wildcats in the thick of tourney talk. Otto Porter Jr. scored 17 points as the Hoyas (23-5, 13-4) had an 11-game winning streak snapped. The Big East leaders lost for the first time since Jan. 19, against South Florida. The Hoyas would have been guaranteed at least a share of the regularseason title with a win. “We needed this game, also,” coach Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. “We’re playing for a championship. That’s something just as important. We were also desperate coming into this game.” Darrun Hilliard scored 14 points, Ryan Arcidiacono had 11 and Mouphtaou Yarou grabbed 12 rebounds for the Wildcats, who finished 30-of42 from the free-throw line. Georgetown went 4-of-8 from the stripe. The Wildcats still have the Big East tournament ahead. But they have won enough big games to start thinking about the NCAA tournament. It’s a swift turnaround after the Wildcats finished 13-19 last season and missed the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004. The 19 losses were a season-worst for a program that started playing in 1920. The Hoyas were playing for a No. 1 seed in the both the Big East and NCAA tournaments. But they committed a whopping 23 turnovers and never made the big shots down the stretch. Pinkston’s 3-pointer midway through the second half pushed the lead to eight and the Wildcats held off a brief Hoyas’ run with seven straight points from the line. Hilliard shook off early foul trouble to bury a 3-pointer and make it 54-48. Arcidiacono followed with two free throws and the crowd of 13,685 went wild sensing another upset. The Wildcats were one of the rare teams this season to crack Georgetown’s defense, one of the stingiest in the nation. The Hoyas held teams to 38 percent shooting and only Pittsburgh cracked 50 percent in a game this season. Led by Pinkston inside and James Bell outside, the Wildcats hovered around the 50 percent mark to torment the Hoyas. Plus 13 steals with 3:40 left in the game sure didn’t hurt the Wildcats. Villanova’s defense tightened up and forced Georgetown into rushing shots with ticks still left on the shot clock. Pinkston missed two free throws and the late meltdown so similar to ones in losses last week at Seton Hall and Pittsburgh appeared under way. Pinkston steadied himself from the line the next time down and hit two for a 6-point lead. Hilliard forced a steal at midcourt, then drew Moses Ayegba’s fifth foul. He made 1-of-2from the line and Villanova kept a comfortable lead the rest of the way.
GEORGIA TECH 71, No. 6 MIAMI Georgia Tech (16-13, 6-11) beat a Top 25 team for the first time since March 2010. Georges-Hunt drove into the lane and threw up a one-hander over Kenny Kadji that bounced off the rim. Georges-Hunt and Robert Carter Jr. both appeared to get a hand on the rebound and the tip-in was credited to Georges-Hunt for only his second basket of the game. Chris Bolden scored 21 points for Tech and went 4 for 8 from 3-point range. Daniel Miller added 17 points and five rebounds. Kadji had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Hurricanes while Scott had 17 points. No. 7 MICHIGAN 80, PURDUE 75 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Trey Burke had 26 points and five rebounds to lead Michigan to the come-frombehind win. Terone Johnson scored a careerhigh 35 points and Rapheal Davis added 15 for Purdue (14-16 7-10 Big Ten). Nik Stauskas had 17 points and Tim Hardaway, Jr. had 16 points and five rebounds for the Wolverines (255, 12-5), who have won four of their last five and remain in the race for a share of the Big Ten title. Hardaway’s 3-pointer with 3:46 left gave Michigan a 66-64 lead. Stauskas made free throws and a 3-pointer to extend the lead and Burke added two free throws with 20 seconds left to make it 77-73. No. 11 FLORIDA 66, VANDERBILT 40 GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Kenny Boynton scored 15 points and Pat Young added 14 as Florida clinched the Southeastern Conference regular season championship. Florida won its fourth outright league title and third under long-time coach Billy Donovan. The Gators (245, 14-3 SEC) were alone atop the standings in 1988-89, 2006-07 and 2010-11. Like the others, this one earned the Gators the No. 1 seed heading into next week’s SEC tournament. It also capped a perfect season (15-0) at home and sent seniors Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario out with a victory on “Senior Night.” Kendren Johnson had 15 points for the Commodores (13-16, 7-10), including 13 straight at one point. No. 12 NEW MEXICO 75, NEVADA 62 RENO, Nev. — Tony Snell scored 25 points and Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk added double-doubles to lead New Mexico to its sixth straight victory. Bairstow had 15 points and 10 rebounds and Kirk had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Lobos (26-4, 13-2 Mountain West), who trailed 55-53 but ran off 17 straight points late in the second half to improve to 8-3 on the road. Kendall Williams added 10 points and five assists for New Mexico, which had already clinched their fourth regular season title in five years. Malik Story scored 25 points for the Wolf Pack (12-17, 3-12). Snell, who was 8 of 11 from the field, scored New Mexico’s last 10 points of the first half and had eight during the Lobos’ late run. IOWA STATE 87, No. 13 OKLAHOMA STATE 76 AMES, Iowa — Senior Will Clyburn scored 20 points and Iowa State bolstered its NCAA tournament hopes. Georges Niang added 18 points for the Cyclones (20-10, 10-7 Big 12), who notched just their second victory over a ranked opponent this season. Oklahoma State trailed by as many as 15 points but Marcus Smart’s reverse dunk made it 70-68 with 4:28 left. Clyburn answered with a 3 and Tyrus McGee’s 3 a minute later put the Cyclones ahead 78-68. Smart was brilliant for Oklahoma State (22-7, 12-5), scoring 24 points with eight rebounds and five steals. But it wasn’t enough as the Cowboys lost for just the second time in 12 games. XAVIER 77, No. 16 SAINT LOUIS 66, OT CINCINNATI — Travis Taylor had 19 points and a career-high 19 rebounds and Xavier never trailed in the overtime while ending the Billikens’ 11-game winning streak and leaving the Atlantic 10 title up for grabs. Xavier (17-12, 9-6 A-10) ended a long winning streak for the second time in eight days. The Musketeers snapped Memphis’ 18-game streak at the Cintas Center last week. The Billikens (23-6, 12-3) wasted a chance to win a share of a conference title for the first time since 1970-71 in the Missouri Valley. Their last outright title came in 1956-57. They could have clinched the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament with a win on Wednesday. Instead, they fell into a first-place tie with No. 21 VCU, which beat Richmond on Wednesday. Kwamain Mitchell led Saint Louis with 17 points. Cody Ellis, the Billikens’ top 3-point shooter, missed all of his 15 shots — 11 behind the arc — and finished with four free throws. No. 17 SYRACUSE 78, DePAUL 57 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Brandon Triche and James Southerland combined for 37 points in the final home game of their careers and Syracuse snapped a 3-game losing streak. Syracuse (23-7, 11-6 Big East) broke a rare 2-game losing streak in the Carrier Dome. No. 5 Georgetown started it 11 days ago with a 57-46 win that stopped the Orange’s 38-game winning streak, the longest in the nation at the time. Cleveland Melvin had 15 points and eight rebounds for DePaul (11-19, 2-15), which lost its fifth straight and moved into a tie for last in the conference with South Florida. Southerland struggled, going 5-of-19 from the field and 1-of-10 on 3-pointers. But he made all 11 of his free throws for 22 points in his first start of the season and just the third of his career. Triche finished with 15 points and five rebounds. No. 21 VCU 93, RICHMOND 82 RICHMOND, Va. — Treveon Graham scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half, including the go-ahead basket with 2:58 to play, for VCU. Juvonte Reddic added 16 points for the Rams (24-6, 12-3 Atlantic 10), who remained in control of at least the second seed in the conference tournament later this month. Cedric Lindsay led the Spiders (17-13, 7-8) with 22 points, but failed on several consecutive possessions late in the game as the Rams pulled away from a 79-all tie with 3:13 remaining. Graham’s driving basket broke the tie and after a turnover by Lindsay in the lane, Reddic dunked for the Rams, bringing the sellout crowd in the Siegel Center to their feet. WASHINGTON STATE 73, No. 23 UCLA 61 PULLMAN, Wash. — Brock Motum had 20 points and 11 rebounds as last-place Washington State upset UCLA, breaking a 19-game home losing streak to the Bruins that extended to 1993. Royce Woolridge added 19 points for Washington State (12-18, 3-14 Pac12), which also broke a 9-game losing streak that had put coach Ken Bone on the hot seat. Jordan Adams scored 18 points for UCLA (22-8, 12-5), which had won four straight games and came into Wednesday tied with Oregon for first place in the Pac-12. Washington State played without Mike Ladd (knee injury) and DaVonte Lacy (knee injury), their second- and third-leading scorers. WOMEN NEWARK, Del. — Elena Delle Donne scored 24 points, Danielle Parker reached 1,000 career rebounds and No. 16 Delaware scored the first 16 points to defeat Georgia State 86-58 on Wednesday. Parker, playing in her school-record 138th game, had 12 rebounds, and Lauren Carra scored 15 points for the Blue Hens (26-3, 17-0 Colonial Athletic Association), who set a school record with their 22nd consecutive victory, surpassing a mark set last season. The Blue Hens’ last loss was 69-53 to Maryland on Dec. 20. Kendra Long scored 14 points and Cody Paulk had 12 for the Panthers (13-16, 5-13). It was Georgia State’s final home game this season and their last in the CAA. The Blue Hens led 16-0 only 5:21 in. Delaware made 32 field goals to Georgia State’s 24 and shot 12-of-22 shooting 3-pointers to the Panthers’ 2 of 16. No. 25 TOLEDO 63, BALL STATE 39 TOLEDO — Naama Shafir and Yolanda Richardson scored 14 points apiece to push Toledo past Ball State in its first game as a ranked team since 2001. Yolanda Richardson made 7-of-9 from the field and grabbed a gamehigh 16 rebounds to help Toledo (27-2, 15-1), the MAC regular-season champions, win its 15th straight game. The Rockets hadn’t been ranked since Nov. 19, 2001. After Toledo went ahead 10-0, Brandy Woody’s jumper capped a 10-0 run for Ball State to tie it with 12:03 left in the half. The Rockets closed out the half on 26-4 run to take a 36-14 lead into halftime. Shafir, a MAC Player of Year candidate, sparked the run with a 3-pointer. Toledo led by as many as 31 points in the second half.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Marcus Georges-Hunt followed his own miss for the winning tip-in at the buzzer and Georgia Tech kept Miami from clinching the outright Atlantic Coast Conference title. The Hurricanes (23-6, 14-3 ACC), who squandered a 13-point lead in the second half, lost for the third time in four games and fell to 13-1 at home. They were already assured of a share of the title and can still clinch the championship outright by winning their regular-season finale at home against Clemson on Saturday.

(Continued from Page 6) Williams had 20 points and eight assists, Joe Johnson added 22 points and Brooklyn got a needed win after losing two straight and four of its last five. The Nets trailed by 10 at the half but opened the third quarter with a 21-6 run led by Williams and Johnson and never looked back. The Bobcats managed just nine points in the third quarter on 3-of-19 shooting and were outscored 56-25 in the second half to lose their eighth straight game. Reggie Evans grabbed 16 rebounds and Brook Lopez had 16 points and five rebounds for the Nets. Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 17 points and Ben Gordon added 16 for the Bobcats. HAWKS 107, 76ERS 96 ATLANTA — Jeff Teague scored 27 points, Anthony Tolliver added a season-high 21 and Atlanta bounced back from a sluggish start to snap a 3-game losing streak. Tolliver, averaging just 3.4 points a game, had already surpassed his previous best of 13 points by halftime. The Sixers kept leaving him open beyond the arc and he kept knocking down 3-pointers, finishing 5-for-7 from long range. The Hawks missed their first eight shots but quickly pulled themselves together against weary Philadelphia, which was playing its eighth game in 12 days. Atlanta led by 19 before settling for a 59-47 lead at halftime. Damien Wilkins led the Sixers with 21 points and Dorell Wright had 20. KNICKS 87, PISTONS 77 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Raymond Felton scored 26 points, and New York pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Detroit despite Carmelo Anthony’s absence.

on a 16-0 run in the fourth to put away the game. The Pistons were without big man Greg Monroe, who has a sore left ankle, and Detroit coach Lawrence Frank missed the game because of a personal matter. The Knicks turned the ball over 11 times in the first quarter but they still led 44-38 at the half. Brandon Knight scored 17 points for the Pistons and led a third-quarter rally but Detroit managed only 12 points in the fourth. TIMBERWOLVES 87, WIZARDS 82 MINNEAPOLIS — Ricky Rubio had 15 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds and six steals to lead Minnesota to a victory over Washington that snapped a 6-game losing streak. Derrick Williams added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Timberwolves,and J.J. Barea scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter. John Wall had 19 points and seven assists and Trevor Ariza added 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Wizards, who were missing leading scorer Bradley Beal because of a sprained left ankle. Washington turned the ball over 24 times, leading to 30 points by Minnesota. Washington led by eight early in the fourth but Rubio’s defense keyed a 21-9 surge by the Timberwolves over the final 9:30. GRIZZLIES 91, TRAIL BLAZERS 85 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Marc Gasol had 23 points and 12 rebounds and Jerryd Bayless scored all 13 of his points in the final 13 minutes to lead Memphis to its second straight win and 10th victory in the last 11 games.

Tony Allen scored 10 points, including two free throws with 4.8 seconds left

The Associated Press DORAL, Fla. — Rory McIlroy offered another apology, a straightforward explanation and a pledge Wednesday that he will never again quit in middle of a round. McIlroy faced the media for the first time since he abruptly walked off the golf course in the second round of the Honda Classic, telling reporters that his head was not in the right place and then issuing a statement that his sore wisdom tooth made it difficult to concentrate. Turns out the wisdom tooth wasn’t the whole truth and the world’s No. 1 player said, “It will never happen again.” DORAL, Fla — Tim Clark stated his case against the proposed ban on anchored strokes, saying he was frustrated by the lack of evidence from golf’s governing bodies that

using a long putter provides an advantage. Clark has used a long putter he anchors to his chest since he was in college.

PRO FOOTBALL CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league will continue to do “everything we can” to make football safer. Goodell has talked a lot recently about player safety and he discussed it again during a lecture and question-and-answer session at the department of exercise and sport


that provided the final margin. Damian Lillard scored 20 points on 7-for-11 shooting to lead Portland and J.J. Hickson had 12 points and 13 rebounds. Memphis was without leading rebounder Zach Randolph (left ankle sprain) and reserve forward Darrell Arthur (sore neck and back). MAVERICKS 112, ROCKETS 108 DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points, O.J. Mayo had two big fourth-quarter baskets and a careerhigh 12 assists and Dallas bounced back from a blowout loss in Houston. Mayo scored five straight points to put Dallas ahead 107-104 and the Mavericks won despite 28 points from James Harden, who scored the last seven for the Rockets. Harden missed a 3-pointer and a layup with the Rockets trying to tie in the final seconds, three days after their 33-point win in Houston. Chandler Parsons had 23 points for Houston, while Jeremy Lin scored 12 but sat the entire fourth quarter in favor of backup Patrick Beverley. RAPTORS 98, SUNS 71 PHOENIX — DeMar DeRozan scored 15 points and Amir Johnson added 14 to lead Toronto to a victory over Phoenix that snapped a 5-game skid. Seldom-used Sebastian Telfair scored 13 points for the Raptors in his return to Phoenix. Marcus Morris scored 12 points and was the only player in double figures for the Suns, who committed a season-high 29 turnovers and lost a 3-game winning streak. The Raptors led 25-22 late in the first quarter when Suns center Marcin Gortat came down with a rebound and had his left foot stepped on by Johnson. Gortat did not return and Phoenix, already without backup Jermaine O’Neal, was left with Hamed Haddadi

as the only true center available. CLIPPERS 117, BUCKS 101 LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for his third career triple-double and the Clippers won for the 10th time in 13 games. Jamal Crawford had 25 points and Matt Barnes added 20, while Chris Paul had 14 points and nine assists to help the Pacific Division leaders improve to 24-7 at home. Monta Ellis scored 18 of his 22 points in the first half and Ersan Ilyasova added 20 points for the Bucks, whose 4-game winning streak ended as they fell to 1-12 in Los Angeles against the Clippers since the 2000-01 season. Brandon Jennings hit five 3-pointers for 18 points and 12 assists. The Clippers opened the fourth quarter with a 7-point lead and quickly extended it to 108-91. Griffin capped the spurt with a thunderous dunk off Crawford’s alley-oop pass. WARRIORS 87, KINGS 83 OAKLAND, Calif. — Klay Thompson made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds remaining and finished with 20 points to lead Golden State. Thompson then forced Tyreke Evans into an errant layup on the final possession to seal a sloppy win for the Warriors over the Western Conference’s worst team. After dropping the first two in Sacramento this season, Golden State overcame 18 turnovers and 36 percent shooting against its Northern California rival. David Lee had 17 points and 10 rebounds and rookie Harrison Barnes added 14 points for the Warriors, who are 2-0 since a 4-game losing streak. They held the Kings to 40 percent shooting and forced 15 turnovers. Jason Thompson had 17 points and eight rebounds and Patrick Patterson added 15 points for Sacramento.

SAN FRANCISCO — Six-time Pro Bowl kicker David Akers was released by the San Francisco 49ers after two seasons filled with record-breaking highs and incredible lows. Akers appeared in all 32 regular-season games and five playoff contests the past two seasons. He connected on 73-of-94 field goal attempts and all 78 extra points. In 2011, Akers set NFL records with 44 field goals made and 52 attempted, but Akers made just 29 of 44 attempts last season, his lowest percentage since 1999.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs made another move in their roster overhaul under new leadership, releasing right tackle Eric Winston after only one season. WASHINGTON — The case against the Washington Redskins nickname begins again today. The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board will hear a petition brought by a group of Native Americans who say the Redskins should lose their federal trademark protection. They cite a law that prohibits registered names that are disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable. The board stripped the Redskins of the trademark in 1999 but the ruling was overturned in large part on a technicality. The same technicality doesn’t apply to the new group of

squeezes limes: Squeeze citrus: To squeeze key limes, I use a garlic press. Cut the limes crosswise, then pinch them a little so that the lime halves fit into the press. This method yields much more juice than juicing by hand. -- Karen B., email Stain removal: This is in reference to M.K from Canada, whose husband’s shirt had a large, indelible-ink stain that wasn’t responding to the usual removal methods. I had that exact situation, and the fact that my shirt had been washed prior to discovering the stain increased the ink’s resistance to treatment (most labels state this). After exhausting all the usual remedies, what worked for me was Carbona Stain Devils No. 3. It took a couple of days to soak out, but there was no trace of ink, not even in the seams or topstitching. There was no faded or “worked on” area either.

Frugal Living
Carbona is a German line of about a dozen stain-specific solutions in small, yellow, wedge-shaped bottles, each costing around $4. If the shirt is worth it, check your local grocery and hardware stores for Carbona. I recommended Carbona to a friend who needed to remove a red lipstick stain from her white suit and the dove-gray seat of her new car. She went through several bottles, but that was a small price to pay to restore the upholstered seat. The suit was easy by comparison; the bright red-pigmented grease completely disappeared. -- Meg, email Note from Sara: Carbona can be purchased online at carbona. com.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 2013 It looks like you will be taking on many additional responsibilities and duties in coming months. However, this isn’t likely to disturb you, because your focus will be on the rewards you’ll get for doing so. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Associates will be more inclined to accept your political or philosophical concepts if you don’t present them in a heavy-handed manner. Keep things light and cheerful. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Difficult developments aren’t likely to intimidate you, and you’ll have no trouble handling them competently. Yet, surprisingly, you could get upset over something that should be fun. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Although your mate’s point of view may be on the somber side, you’ll see only the positive aspect of things. Try to help brighten his or her perspective as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Even if you feel you deserve far better, try to be grateful for what you get. Do your best to keep your expectations within reasonable bounds. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Guard against inclinations to speculate in unfamiliar areas. It’s never a good day to gamble on things about which you know little or nothing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although you’ll have a great deal of compassion for others, you aren’t likely to know how to express it. At least you’ll know why your behavior is eliciting a negative response. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Do not expect to get more labor out of coworkers than you’re prepared to give yourself. If you want them to work hard, you’ll need to do the same. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be generous with those who need it, but be careful not to be manipulated by someone who’s asking for something that he or she doesn’t deserve. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Putting forth maximum effort is admirable, but don’t be so determined to achieve your objective that you end up doing everything the hard way. That would only slow you down. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Usually, you’re fairly optimistic about most everything in life, but you could step out of character and be a defeatist. Don’t start playing this unproductive role. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Problems of all sorts, even social ones, cannot be resolved if you deny their existence. Instead of burying them, put them under the sunshine where you can clearly deal with them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Anybody who cannot help you attain your objective should not be involved in your endeavor. All their contributions and input might do is stymie your efforts even further.

UN approves new sanctions against North Korea
BY EDITH M. LEDERER and HYUNG-JIN KIM The Associated Press UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously today for tough new sanctions to punish North Korea for its latest nuclear test, a move that sparked a furious Pyongyang to threaten a nuclear strike against the United States. The vote by the U.N.’s most powerful body on a resolution drafted by North Korea’s closest ally, China, and the United States sends a powerful message that the international community condemns the ballistic missile and nuclear tests — and repeated violation of Security Council resolutions. Immediately before the vote, an unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because The Associated Press Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North. It appeared to be the most specific open threat of a nuclear strike by any country against another. Although North Korea boasts of nuclear bombs and pre-emptive strikes, it is not thought to have mastered the ability to produce a warhead small enough to put on a missile capable of reaching the U.S. It is believed to have enough nuclear fuel, however, for several crude nuclear devices. The new sanctions are aimed at reining in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs by making it more difficult for Pyongyang to finance and obtain material for these programs, tracking illegal diplomatic activity and intensifying inspections of cargo to and from the country. In a measure targeted at the reclusive nation’s ruling elite, the resolution bans all nations from exporting expensive jewelry, yachts, luxury automobiles and racing cars to the North. After the 15-0 vote, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice told reporters that “taken together, these sanctions will bite and bite hard.” Responding to Pyongyang’s nuclear strike threat, she said, “North Korea will achieve nothing by continued threats and provocation.” She urged North Korea’s leaders to heed President Barack Obama’s call to follow the path of peace. If it doesn’t, she said, the Security Council is committed in the resolution to take further measures. China’s U.N. Ambassador Li Bao Dong said the top priority now is to “bring down the heat” and focus on diplomacy and restarting the six-party talks aimed at denuclearizing the Korean peninsula. In North Korea, Army Gen. Kang Pyo Yong told a crowd of tens of thousands that North Korea is ready to fire longrange nuclear-armed missiles at Washington. “Intercontinental ballistic missiles and various other missiles, which have already set their BY COLLEEN LONG The Associated Press

Syrian troops fight rebels in restive south
BEIRUT — Clashes between Syrian troops and rebel fighters flared today near an area where armed fighters linked to the opposition abducted 21 U.N. peacekeepers a day earlier. The peacekeepers are part of a force that monitors a ceasefire between Israeli and Syrian troops in the Golan Heights. Israel captured part of the territory in the 1967 Mideast war, and while the area has been peaceful for decades, Israeli officials have grown increasingly jittery as the Syrian civil war moves closer to its borders. Today, the Syrian army battled opposition fighters near the Golan Heights in the southern province of Daraa, said Rami Abdul-Rahman, the director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. He said the fighting was concentrated on the outskirts of the Syrian village of Jamlah, where gunmen on Wednesday detained 21 U.N. peacekeepers from the Philippines. In an online video, a man

identified as a spokesman for the Martyrs of Yarmouk Brigades said his group will hold the peacekeepers until Assad’s forces withdraw from Jamlah. The Yarmouk Brigades said in a statement on its Facebook page today that Assad’s troops are pounding the Jamlah, and warned that the army will be responsible if the peacekeepers in rebel custody are harmed. In the Philippines, the government said today that talks were under way for the release of the peacekeepers.

Man held without bail in couple’s deadly crash
NEW YORK — A man suspected of fleeing the scene of a grisly New York crash that killed a pregnant woman and her husband was arrested at a Pennsylvania convenience store on Wednesday after a friend arranged his surrender, and he was ordered held without bail. Julio Acevedo walked to officers waiting in cars in the parking lot in Bethlehem, Pa., and was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of an accident, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. Acevedo said nothing to officers who took him into custody, Browne said. Acevedo is accused of speeding down a Brooklyn street at 60 mph early Sunday and crashing into a car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber. The Glaubers, both 21 years old, died Sunday, and their premature son, delivered by cesarean section, died Monday. The surrender of Acevedo on Wednesday evening was brokered by a friend who had been in touch with police earlier in the day. The friend met officers at New York’s Grand Central Terminal and then led them to Acevedo in Bethlehem, about 80 miles away, police said. Acevedo, 44, was ordered held without bail late Wednesday during a video hearing. A judge said Acevedo would be held overnight in Lehigh County Prison while awaiting an extradition hearing today to address his return to New York, said The ExpressTimes newspaper, of Easton, Pa. Acevedo said he understood. It was unclear if Acevedo had an attorney. The friend had told police that Acevedo would surrender after consulting an attorney, but none was with him when he turned himself in, Browne said. Acevedo told the Daily News that he was fleeing a gunman who was trying to shoot at him when his borrowed BMW slammed into a hired car carrying the couple. He told the newspaper he fled because he was worried he’d be killed. But police said there were no reports of shots fired in the area at the time of the wreck. The tragedy unfolded shortly after midnight Saturday, when Raizy Glauber, who was seven months pregnant, decided to go to the hospital because she wasn’t feeling well, her family said. The Glaubers called a livery cab, a hired car that

striking targets, are now armed with lighter, smaller and diversified nuclear warheads and are placed on a standby status,” Kang said. “When we shell (the missiles), Washington, which is the stronghold of evils, …. will be engulfed in a sea of fire.” The statement by the North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman was carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency. It accused the U.S. of leading efforts to slap sanctions on North Korea. The statement said the new sanctions would only advance the timing for North Korea to fulfill previous vows to take “powerful second and third countermeasures” against its enemies. It hasn’t elaborated on those measures. The statement said North Korea “strongly warns the U.N. Security Council not to make another big blunder like the one in the past when it earned the inveterate grudge of the Korean nation by acting as a war servant for the U.S. in 1950.” is arranged via telephone, not hailed off the street like a yellow cab. The crash with the BMW reduced the livery cab to a crumpled heap, and Raizy Glauber was thrown from it. The cab’s engine ended up in the back seat. The driver of the cab was knocked unconscious. The couple belonged to a close-knit ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, which is home to the largest community of ultra-Orthodox Jews outside Israel, more than 250,000. They were members of the Satmar Hasidic sect. Raizy Glauber grew up in a prominent rabbinical family. Her husband was studying at a rabbinical college; his family founded a line of clothing for Orthodox Jews. The couple’s son weighed only about 4 pounds when he was delivered, neighbors and friends said. He died of extreme prematurity, the city medical examiner’s office said. He was buried Monday near his parents’ graves, according to a spokesman for the Hasidic Jewish community. About a thousand community members turned out for the young couple’s funeral a day earlier. Word of Acevedo’s arrest was met with bittersweet satisfaction in the Glaubers’ community.

Hanson of Brier, Wash. He said he drove his daughter from her home on New Year’s Day, arriving at Cat Haven Jan. 2. “She was very excited,” Hanson told The Associated Press late Wednesday. “It was just a dream job for her.” Hanson said she had been fascinated by big cats from an earlier age. “She was absolutely fearless,” he said. Cat Haven founder and executive director Dale Anderson was crying as he read a one-sentence statement about the fatal

mauling at the private zoo he has operated since 1993. Investigators were trying to determine why the intern was inside the enclosure and what might have provoked the attack, sheriff’s Sgt. Greg Collins said. The facility is normally closed on Wednesdays, and only one other worker was there when the mauling happened, he said. California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Janice Mackey said she was unaware if any state regulations would prohibit an employee from entering an exotic animal’s enclosure. The lion, a 4-year-old male named Cous Cous, had been raised at Cat Haven since it was a cub, said Tanya Osegueda, a spokeswoman for Project Survival, the nonprofit that operates the animal park. Since the 100-acre facility just west of Kings Canyon National Park opened two decades ago, it has housed numerous big cats, including tigers, leopards and other exotic species. It is permitted to house exotic animals by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and is regulated as a zoo by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Results of the last 13 USDA inspections show no violations dating back to March 2010. The most recent inspection was Feb. 4. Despite state regulations requiring annual inspections, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife most recently inspected the facility in January 2011, when the inspector found it in “good condition” after checking animal health and features such as enclosures.
