Nationally renowned shooting instructor Jay Wolf talks to a group of attendees at the Star Shooter basketball clinic held Monday, July 21 at Grand County Middle School. A total of 43 local kids attended the clinic, according to Connie Wilson, who coordinated the effort to bring the Wisconsin-based Wolf to town. Two sessions were held, each 3.5 hours in length, with a morning session for students in grades five through seven and an afternoon session for eighth-graders and older. “It’s all about consistency,” Wolf told the participants. “Your shot should be the same every time.” Wilson said the event was part of the ongoing efforts by Grand’s middle school basketball coach Conrad Yanito and his staff to keep young players focused on the sport and its fundamentals, even in the off-season. As part of that effort another event — a three-on-three basketball tournament — was held at GCMS on June 21, and attracted some 60 youth players. Photo by Jeff Richards

    Los Angeles Department of Water and Power "Y" shaped juncture where a water rupture occurred, involving two main trunk lines is seen on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles Thursday, July 31, 2014. Work crews have stopped the last of the water gushing from a 30-inch pipe some 30 hours after it burst. Damage costs have yet to be pegged from the rupture of the pipeline that spewed more than 20 million gallons of water in the midst of California's worst drought in decades. The break in the 93-year-old pipe left a swath of the UCLA campus including its basketball arena swamped with water. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)LOS ANGELES (AP) — The famed hardwood court at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion will be replaced because of damage caused when 20 million gallons of water cascaded onto campus from a broken water main, the school announced Friday.

    FILE - In this Thursday, May 15, 2014 file photo, Shakhtar's Donetsk supporters wave Ukrainian flags as they react during the final soccer match of Ukraine's Cup between Donetsk's Shakhtar and Dynamo Kiev at Vorskla Stadium in Poltava, Ukraine. Five months after the annexation of Crimea, Russia and Ukraine are now squabbling over soccer clubs in the region. Defying authorities in Ukraine, Russia is incorporating three Crimean teams into its own leagues _ a move that could strain relations between the host country of the 2018 World Cup and the sport’s world governing body. Champion Shakhtar Donetsk has been left humbled by the conflict, forced to play its home games in exile in Lviv near the Polish border, a Ukrainian-speaking city that is the cultural opposite of mostly Russian-speaking and industrial Donetsk. (AP Photo/Andrey Lukatsky, File)MOSCOW (AP) — Five months after the annexation of Crimea, Russia and Ukraine are now squabbling over soccer clubs in the region.
