Today:  Rain and sleet tapering to flurries.  High around 40.

2) World news roundup


It dropped nearly two feet of snow on parts of Missouri and Oklahoma, and now the
dreaded late-winter storm is moving east.  Icy roads have already led to countless
accidents, coupled with injuries that have left police and fire rescue on full
alert. …Negotiators will take another stab at ending the year-long civil strife
that has plagued Kosovo when peace talks resume Monday. …Istanbul was the victim
of a bomb that killed one and injured five, a day after a firebomb attack killed 13.
Kurds deny any involvement. …Against a chorus of criticism from Republicans in
Congress, Clinton administration officials defended their investigation into alleged
Chinese spying at U.S. nuclear weapons labs.

Kentucky stands alone as the only member of last year’s Final Four still remaining

go on to the regionals to face Miami of Ohio, who knocked off No. 2 Utah 66-58.
Other key matchups include No. 1 Duke vs. Southwest Missouri State, who took care
of No. 4 Tennessee over the weekend, and Florida vs. Gonzaga, coming off their
upset win over No. 2 Stanford. …After a brief hiatus, controversy has returned to
the sport of boxing with the official announcement that Evander Holyfield and Lennox
Lewis have been ordered to fight a rematch of Saturday’s failed attempt to unify the
heaviweight titles within the next six months. …Citing personal reasons that have
yet to be disclosed, Dennis Rodman has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the
