When she heard that Teresa Rose Greaves' remains had been recovered from a makeshift grave on a Utah hillside, Debbie Veevers cried for a classmate she remembered but barely knew. "I just felt so much compassion for this poor soul who had no one," says Veevers, an Oaklyn resident who graduated from Collingswood High School with Greaves in 1977 - and has raised $1,400 at Gofundme.com to have her brought back for interment in South Jersey. Greaves went missing in Utah in 1983; the Davis County Sheriff's Office is now investigating her death as a homicide.

USUALLY WHEN I ASK for ice with my cocktail, it isn't delivered to my right knee. But that was exactly what happened when I ordered a Corpse Reviver No. 2 at The Farm, an innovative restaurant at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah. Lily, our auburn-tressed server, spied my propped-up gam and nodded her head knowingly. In a flash, I had a cold pack on my knee, part of the RICE response to a fall - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Sigh. It had been going so well . . . After a three-year absence from the slopes, I vowed to ski it or lose it this year.

SALT LAKE CITY - What changed? What happened? At the start of the season, 76ers coach Brett Brown spoke of looking forward to Joel Embiid's traveling with the team, being in the team meetings and video sessions. Brown wanted his rehabilitating rookie center to always interact with his teammates and coaches. It's an approach the Sixers benefited from last season with Nerlens Noel. They were determined to do the same with Embiid, who had a foot injury. However, Brown announced before Saturday night's game against the Utah Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena that Embiid and shooting guard Hollis Thompson had been sent home.

Colored corn starch? Obstacles? Foam? Mud pits? Zombies? Events with these elements aren't races, but nontraditional running events, and they're exploding in popularity with mixed results. While they get people off the couch who may have been too intimidated to try a traditional road race, quick expansion has lead to growing pains. Such events are now banned from parks owned by the City of Philadelphia. "They became more trouble then they were worth," said Barry Bessler, chief of staff of the city's Parks and Recreation Department.

MONTREAL - Just as the sun crackled over the Mount Royal summit yesterday, throngs of people made their usual weekend pilgrimage downtown. The route and ritual was familiar, if not the time of day. Fans clad in red and white streamed past Bell Centre, hockey's current cathedral, and packed bars - before liquor was even allowed to be served - to share in the camaraderie of this country's golden hockey generation. When the final horn sounded in Sochi and all of Canada erupted, the bright lights were once again shining on former Flyers forward Simon Gagne.

SALT LAKE CITY - The All-Star break couldn't have come at a better time for the 76ers. Check that, the All-Star break couldn't have come at a better time for any team in the league more than the Sixers. Maybe it couldn't have come at a better time for any team in the history of the game. Legs are dragging. Bodies are sore. Heads are hanging. And that's normal for a team struggling going into the break. But going into last night's game at Utah against the Jazz, the Sixers had lost their previous two games by a combined 88 points.

DON'T MESS with Larry Krystkowiak. Last month, the former NBA forward who's now the men's basketball coach at the University of Utah, chased down a bike thief on the school's Salt Lake City campus. More recently, he helped capture a guy who tried to steal more than dozen laptops from the athletic department. Of the two, the bike story is the best. Krystkowiak, in his third-year with the Utes, was walking to practice when he saw something suspicious: a guy riding a bike, while wheeling another bike.

SALT LAKE CITY - Belize's head coach said a man who allegedly offered three of his players large sums of money to fix a Gold Cup match against the United States is already known to international soccer officials. The Belize players rejected the offer to "sell the game" and immediately told coach Ian Mork what had happened. Mork said Thursday he called a representative of CONCACAF, the federation of North and Central America and the Caribbean nations and organizer of the Gold Cup. The official showed the players a photo of a man already being monitored for trying to fix matches in other countries, and Mork said they confirmed it was the same man who had offered them money.
