The new clinic is in a scrubby forest 15 miles southeast of town. It has no advertising budget to speak of. And its only marketing plan, a $600,000 effort, is gathering dust on a shelf. The plan wasn't needed. For in spite of its location, and a chilly reception from local doctors, patients are flocking to the clinic. Some are pressuring their physicians for referrals. Many others are coming on their own. Virtually all are lured by the mystique of the name: Mayo. That's right, Mayo.

When President Clinton on Wednesday singled out the Mayo Clinic as a model of a health organization holding down costs, he was unwittingly praising one of America's largest and wealthiest medical networks. But its very size and wealth raise some of the issues Clinton is purporting to address. In fiscal 1991, Mayo Foundation, the nonprofit parent for the famous clinic, posted a surplus of nearly $102 million on revenue of $801 million, a 13 percent operating margin, a copy of its public tax return shows.

The Detroit Pistons finished the season under a shower of silver-and-black confetti. Detroit fell a victory short of celebrating back-to-back titles, losing by 81-74 on Thursday night to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. "We just have to remember this feeling," Chauncey Billups said in a somber locker room. "Remember how it feels to lose, with somebody celebrating in front of us. We'll be back here again. " With their top six players under contract, the Pistons will have a shot at contending for a championship in 2006 and perhaps beyond, since each of those players will be 31 or younger when next season starts.

You're 22, a rising NASCAR star, a Daytona 500 winner, recently married . . . the last news you expect to receive is that you have multiple sclerosis. Trevor Bayne revealed yesterday he has been diagnosed with MS, which attacks the central nervous system. Bayne said he has no symptoms now and is not taking medication.

The Feb. 18, 2010, raid on the West Philadelphia clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, recalled FBI agent Jason Huff, was planned so agents would not encounter patients. It was 8:30 p.m., and agents watching Gosnell confirmed that he had been working all day at a Delaware abortion clinic. When Gosnell arrived at 3801 Lancaster Ave., Huff said, agents showed him a search warrant and went inside. "We were quite surprised when we walked in and saw what we saw," Huff told a Philadelphia jury Monday.

FAT CHANCE Don't count on a stomach-stapling operation to solve your obesity problem. The most common type of the operation does not work well, according to the Mayo Clinic, which has dropped the procedure. Doctors found that three years after undergoing a vertical banded gastroplasty, only 38 percent of Mayo Clinic patients had maintained a weight loss of at least half their excess body weight. The clinic now has switched to an operation for obese patients that has the food bypass the stomach entirely.

Fed up after being swept by the lowly Marlins for a second straight weekend, the 23-35 New York Mets demoted first baseman Ike Davis and two other players to triple-A Las Vegas after Sunday's defeat. Before Davis, who had been making $3.125 million and was a staple at first base for the Mets since April 2010, was sent down, manager Terry Collins pinch-hit for him against the Marlins. But you can't fault Collins: Davis was hitting .161 with 66 strikeouts this season. Also bounced were outfielder Mike Baxter and reliever Robert Carson.

KERMIT GOSNELL, the former West Philly abortion doctor charged with eight counts of murder, was portrayed by his defense attorney Monday as the victim of a "prosecutorial lynching" by an "elitist, racist prosecution. " The attorney, Jack McMahon, told the jury in his opening statement that the prosecution would call expert witnesses who would unfairly apply Mayo Clinic standards to a clinic for poor women in a "nitty-gritty" neighborhood. "They don't run an urban clinic; a low-cost, urban, poverty-stricken clinic," McMahon said of the experts.

The e-mail that Nancy Gleason received last September was lengthy: a last-ditch plea from a distant relative, writing to ask if she knew anyone who might be willing to donate a kidney to a stranger. Gleason clicked the "forward" button and typed in her husband's e-mail address. Her e-mail was just one line long: "We're both O-positive. I'm in if you are. " Eight months later, Chief Joe Gleason of the West Goshen Police Department was heading into surgery at the Mayo Clinic, about to give a major organ to a woman he had met two days before.

CHICAGO - U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who has given no hint of when he'll return to work four months after taking medical leave, will head back to the Mayo Clinic for a checkup "soon," his father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said Sunday. The Democratic congressman from Illinois was released from the Rochester, Minn., clinic in September after seeking treatment for bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal issues. He has been with his family in Washington since, but has not appeared in public, campaigned beyond a recent robocall or said when he'll return to Capitol Hill.

THE ONLY thing worse than having a career-threatening injury is having a career-threatening injury and not knowing what it is or how to fix it. That was the scary situation Eagles punter Mat McBriar found himself in last October. Through the first six games of the 2011 season, McBriar, a two-time Pro Bowler who was in his eighth year with the Cowboys, was one of the league's leading punters, averaging 49.8 yards per attempt. Then, as he prepared for a Week 8 game against the Eagles, he began experiencing intense pain in his left, non-kicking, leg. He punted three times in the first half against the Eagles, and each time he planted his left foot for the kick, he felt a shooting pain.
