    Rose's surgery set for Friday Derrick Rose will have surgery Friday to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee, and a timetable for the Chicago Bulls star's return will be determined after the operation. The 2011 NBA MVP played in only 10 games last season before having surgery for a similar injury in November 2013, cutting short his long-awaited comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. In the November 2013 surgery, Rose had the cartilage reattached. The Bulls said Thursday that team physician Dr. Brian Cole will perform a meniscectomy, which involves removing the damaged cartilage.

    Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby rightly rebuked K-State and put his league on notice that poor behavior will not be tolerated. Such sternness is necessary. It’s also counter to college hoops’ marketing endeavors to refill student sections.

  • Feds OK new rules for net neutrality

    | Updated: 44 min ago

    Calling it “a red-letter day for Internet freedom,” the Federal Communications Commission voted to impose the toughest rules yet on broadband service to prevent companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from creating paid fast lanes and slowing or blocking Web traffic. The new rules require any company providing a broadband connection to your home or phone to act in the “public interest” and refrain from using “unjust or unreasonable” business practices. President Barack Obama, who had come out in favor of net neutrality in the fall, portrayed the decision as a victory for democracy in the digital age. Read more about the vote on Page 1C.

    By the Associated Press | Updated: 1 hr ago

    WACO, Texas — Former Baylor running back Silas Nacita says he made a mistake by “disregarding guidance” from the school's compliance department and accepting benefits that led to him being removed from the team. Baylor announced Tuesday that Nacita, whose story of overcoming an unstable family situation to play major college football made him a fan favorite, was no longer part of the program. The school's announcement came not long after Nacita posted on Twitter he had been ruled ineligible. Nacita posted another statement Wednesday on his Twitter account clarifying his original post.

The 33-year-old Hamilton has a history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse, leading to suspensions that cost him more than three years while in the minors. The Angels have confirmed Hamilton's meeting with MLB, but have declined to give any more information. “I don't know any of the details, so I can't talk about that. But we miss him and we hope everything works out,” MVP outfielder Mike Trout said.

Brendan Steele pitched in from about 35 yards to save bogey on the 14th hole, a key moment in his round of 66. Former Sooner Martin Flores, Kapalua winner Patrick Reed and

  • Overweight people are not weak, sinful

    Published: Fri, Feb 27, 2015

    In “In battling obesity, policy less important than practices” (Our Views, Feb. 22), The Oklahoman wrote “to re-examine critical assumptions.” The Oklahoman should examine Hilde Bruch. She noticed New York City children were fat in 1934. She wondered why American children are bloated and blown up. She studied and wrote that obesity is a complex issue including biologic, psychologic and sociologic factors. Before Gov. Mary Fallin and the newspaper tell people to exercise and eat fruits and vegetables, both must re-examine Gustav von Bergmann and Julius Bauer’s concept of lipophilia. Overweight people are not weak and sinful.

  • Why such opposition to wind energy?

    Published: Fri, Feb 27, 2015

    It’s amazing to watch state legislators introducing bills that would eliminate tax incentives that foster growth of clean, renewable wind energy. Rep. Earl Sears, R-Bartlesville, has proposed unreasonable setbacks intended to destroy this industry — one mile from occupied structures and three miles from any town with five or more residential structures, for example. Why all this opposition to wind energy, which doesn’t contaminate water or air and has never been linked to increased earthquakes? The projected state budget shortfall has increased from $300 million to $600 million. Rather than picking on wind, now would be a good time to recall tax breaks to the oil and gas industry expected to cost $516.7 million in 2015.
