WEATHER FORECAST

Today: Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 60s.
Basking out in the sun on Parrish beach can be wonderful…

Tonight: Clear. Lows in the 40s.
But, like most things in life, it can have unpleasant
consequences.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. High near 70.
So, for all you pale-skinned folks out there, from someone who (before April)
has already been there: WEAR SUNSCREEN. Your nose, shoulders, arms, neck, back and legs
will thank you.

DOING WELL…

UCONN UPSETS DUKE FOR FIRST NATIONAL TITLE

Two days ago, Duke was sitting on top of the world, with both its men’s and women’s
basketball teams playing for the national title, a sweep likely.  Well, the final piece
of the Blue Devil collapse came Monday night, as UConn scored a stunning 77-74 upset to
win their first national title.  Richard Hamilton led the Huskies with 27 points and
Khalid El-Amin came up big in the end.  Duke was led by Trajan Langdon’s 25 points, but
the senior helped UConn’s cause by travelling with seconds remaining to ensure the win
for the Huskies.

AND THE REST…

The Florida Panthers will be without star Pavel Bure, out for six months following knee
surgery. …The Atlanta Hawks continued their dominance over the Indiana Pacers Monday,
coming back for an 83-82 win. …In a New York showdown, Wayne Gretzky came up with the
game winner to give the Rangers a 3-1 win over the Islanders. …Kansas assistant Mike

Braves pitcher Kerry Lightenberg will have season-ending surgery on his right elbow,
