Saric criticizes World Cup 
qualifying system as Croatia out
NEW YORK - Dario Saric says basketball's World Cup qualifying system "doesn't make any sense" to him after Croatia was eliminated from contention Friday. The Croatians had a strong run in the 2016 Olympics, winning their group and reaching the quarterfinals. But they will be sitting home this summer after a 77-69 loss to Poland on Friday. With many games during FIBA's new qualification system taking place during the professional basketball season, top players from the NBA and EuroLeague were largely unavailable.

Knapp Elementary aims to launch walking school bus program Veterans and their families share stories for video project
MILWAUKEE - On an unseasonably warm February morning, 11 children - some quiet and sleepy-eyed, some chipper and chatty - followed Regina Stieber along Milwaukee sidewalks wet with melting snow. Two days per week, Lincoln Avenue Elementary School's "walking bus" picks up students on a set route and makes sure they get to school safely. Stieber, Lincoln's community school coordinator, along with special education teacher Sue Sauerberg and her 18-year-son, make the mile walk each Monday while two other Lincoln teachers lead the "bus."  JANESVILLE - They were sitting ducks.
Two young men crawling across a minefield - one with a missing foot, the other a medic with six weeks of first-aid training and a bag of crude battlefield medicine. Exposed and moving across a field of schu-mines, the medic helped the wounded man crawl back to safety. That was Germany, 1945. The story of those two young men has now been recorded 74 years after that incident as part of a Janesville Leadership Academy project, "Through the Eyes of Rock County Veterans."
Wisconsin man pleads not guilty 
in case of abused teen girl
Cyclorama to be unveiled again 
amid diverging views of past

Authorities have said Rogers met the Tennessee teenager in the online game Roblox in December, and she told him she was being raped by her adoptive father. ATLANTA - At a time when counties, cities and states across the South are removing or covering up Confederate monuments, one of the world's largest paintings of the American Civil War will reopen to the public Friday. But the artwork was never intended to celebrate the Confederacy, historians say. Atlanta's Cyclorama depicts charging horses, wounded soldiers, cannon blasts and smoke on a Civil War battlefield in Atlanta.
