  • Fencing: Gulley wins LAFC tourney

    ck from a rough outing in the preliminary round to win the beginning fencing class tournament last week.
    Gulley topped his three teammates to win the tournament, held at the YMCA.
    The tournament began with a round of pool bouts before the fence-offs. Pool didn’t go so hot for Gulley, but he turned his fortunes around quickly.
    “After fencing poorly in the pools, Steve came back to take first on sheer grit and determination, despite being the smallest and youngest member in the class,” Los Alamos Fencing Club coach Tom Hill said. “That’s why his teammates call him ‘Mr. Scrappy.’”
    Ben Barlow was second in the beginners’ tournament, Tom Barlow finished third and Marshall Dillon was fourth.

  • Basketball: Mavs win, move to within one game of title

    DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki waited five long years for that elusive third victory over Miami, yet there was only a short celebration when it finally came.
    He briefly thrust both arms in the air, a sea of blue screaming around him, but then quickly walked off the floor.
    To Nowitzki, the real party can’t come until next week.
    “There’s really nothing to celebrate,” he said. “We’re going in there Sunday swinging, like we did today, from the jump, and hopefully steal one Sunday.”
    Nowitzki scored 29 points, driving for the go-ahead dunk with 2:45 remaining, and the Mavericks beat the Heat 112-103 on Thursday night to take a 3-2 series lead.

    Thomas Drake's plea deal pleased civil-liberties advocates but is a setback for the Obama administration's effort to crack down on leakers. The administration is pursuing charges against four other accused government leakers under the Act, regarded by critics as vague and overbroad.
