CINCINNATI - A shadow of a different kind is hanging over Punxsutawney Phil. Authorities in still-frigid Ohio have issued an "indictment" against the famed groundhog, who predicted an early spring when he didn't see his shadow after emerging from his lair in Western Pennsylvania on Feb. 2. Spring arrived Wednesday, and temperatures are still hovering in the 30s in the Buckeye state and much of the Northeast. While it's not the coldest spring on record, it's a good 5 degrees below normal, said Don Hughes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio.

MANSFIELD, Ohio - It's all about Ohio - again. The economy has improved here, and so has President Obama's standing, putting pressure on Republican Mitt Romney in a state critical to his presidential hopes. No Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio, and Romney hopes to catch Obama here by slashing at his jobs record in working-class regions. "America doesn't have to have the long face it has had under this president," the Republican shouted Monday to a cheering audience in hardscrabble Mansfield, just weeks after Obama visited.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Walter Offutt and Ohio are moving on in the NCAA Tournament. Step aside, VCU. Enjoy your memories, Butler. The Bobcats are well on their way to becoming the mid-major darlings of this March Madness. Offutt scored 21 points, D.J. Cooper had 19 and No. 13 seed Ohio beat South Florida last night, 62-56, to advance to the Midwest Regional Round of 16. The Bobcats (29-7), who opened the tournament with an upset against fourth-seeded Michigan, will play No. 1 seed North Carolina in St. Louis on Friday in their first trip to the Round of 16 since they lost to the Wolverines in the regional finals in 1964.

WARREN, OHIO - Investigators on Monday tried to piece together what eight teenagers crammed into a stolen SUV were up to before the vehicle flipped over into a pond, killing six of them. Authorities gave few details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday, speeding down a two-lane road. On Monday, the SUV's owner met with police and filed a stolen-car report. Although the father of one of the dead said the teenagers were coming home from a sleepover, the mother of another boy killed said that her son and his best friend had lied about staying over at each other's homes.

ST. LOUIS - Awful all night, Harrison Barnes came through when North Carolina needed him most. Barnes scored five of his 12 points in overtime as the top-seeded Tar Heels escaped a huge upset with a 73-65 victory over 13th-seeded Ohio on Friday night in their Midwest Regional semifinal. Ohio, trying to become the first team seeded 13th or worse to make the regional finals since the tournament expanded in 1985, had a chance to convert a three-point play that would have given the Bobcats the lead with 25 seconds left in regulation.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - As a young state senator 30 years ago, Paul Pfeifer helped write Ohio's death-penalty law. Today, as the senior member of the state Supreme Court, he's trying to eliminate it. It's not uncommon for sitting judges to change their minds about the death penalty - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun famously said in 1994 he would no longer "tinker with the machinery of death" - but Pfeifer may be the only one to argue so ardently against...

IT'S THIS BASIC: If Temple (5-3, 3-2) wins its final three MAC games it will win the league's East title for the first time. If the Owls don't, well, who knows? But at the very least they'd need help, maybe a lot. They've been here before. In 2009 they took a nine-game winning streak into the regular-season finale at Ohio. Playing without running back Bernard Pierce and his injured shoulder they lost, 35-17, even though fellow-freshman Matt Brown rushed for 172 yards.

It's no secret that Punxsutawney Phil is a shadowy underworld figure. And yet it now looks like the dirty rat-cousin could burrow his way out of a possible death sentence in Ohio. A supposed higher-up in the Gobbler's Knob mob has stepped forward to be the fall (or winter and still-not-spring) guy. Police in Maryland, however, have yet to withdraw their "Suspect Wanted for Fraud" proclamation. Being a famous groundhog in Pennsylvania isn't such a warm and fuzzy deal anymore.

Ken Mauk turned the 46th Annual Big 33 game, between former Ohio and Pennsylvania high school standouts, into his own personal PlayStation. Ohio's 6-foot-2, 205-pound quarterback threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in leading Ohio to a 38-7 thumping of Pennsylvania last night in front of 16,489 fans at HersheyPark Stadium. Ohio's victory ended a three-game losing streak. The 31-point difference was the largest margin of victory in the series. Pennsylvania's Adam Bednarik prevented the shutout when he scored on a 17-yard run with 4 minutes, 48 seconds left to play in the game.
