Michigan 7th grader has offer from Harbaugh, father says

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The father of a seventh grader in Michigan said Wednesday his son has a scholarship offer from Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.

Brian Williams said Harbaugh made the offer after watching film of his son Isaiah, who plays quarterback. He said he tries to keep his son grounded, and believes the offer will motivate Isaiah even more.

Offers like this are nonbinding, so it’s hard to tell how seriously they should be taken.

In 2010, the father of 13-year-old quarterback David Sills said his son received an offer from coach Lane Kiffin to play at Southern California. USC fired Kiffin in 2013. Sills ended up at West Virginia, where he was a third-team All-American this past season as a wide receiver.

Atletico eliminated by Girona in Copa del Rey quarterfinals

MADRID (AP) — Atletico Madrid has been eliminated by Girona in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey after being held to a 3-3 draw at home on Wednesday.

Antoine Griezmann came off the bench to score an 84th-minute goal that looked enough to send Atletico to the quarterfinals, but substitute Seydou Doumbia netted in the 88th and Girona advanced on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate score. The teams drew 1-1 in the first leg last week.

It is the first time since 2012 — the year coach Diego Simeone arrived — that Atletico has failed to reach the Copa quarterfinals.

Girona is in the last eight for the first time.

UK’s May wins vote to keep job, Brexit chaos

LONDON (AP) – British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government has survived a no-confidence vote called after May’s Brexit deal was overwhelmingly rejected by lawmakers.

The House of Commons expressed confidence in the government by 325 votes to 306, meaning May can remain in office.

Had the government lost, Britain would have faced an election within weeks while preparing to leave the European Union on March 29.

Despite the reprieve, May faces a monumental struggle to find a way out of her country’s Brexit impasse. She has until Monday to come up with a new blueprint for Britain’s EU exit after the deal she reached with the EU went down to a crushing defeat in Parliament on Tuesday.

Prosecutors: Woman collected federal benefits for fake son

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a military widow has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for falsely claiming to have a son so she could collect more than $100,000 in veterans and Social Security benefits.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports a federal indictment accused 61-year-old Elizabeth Hayes Cox of stealing more than $68,000 in Social Security money and another $44,000 from the Department of Veterans Affairs between 2000 and 2017 on behalf of a fictitious son.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that Cox had married a disabled veteran while he was in prison and presented a fraudulent birth certificate to receive payments for their made-up dependent child named Oliver.

U.S. District Court Judge Terrence Boyle ordered Cox to report to federal prison by the end of February and pay $113,000 restitution.

Democrats call for GOP lawmakers to resign over sexual abuse allegations

Rep. Jeff Hoover

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Kentucky Democratic Party is calling for two state representatives to resign.

It comes after a report by the Kentucky Center for Investigate Reporting, detailing allegations of sexual harassment against former House Speaker Jeff Hoover and Representative Michael Meredith.

The Kentucky Center for Investigative Journalism says it has a transcript of a deposition given by a woman, referred to as “Jane Doe,” who started working for the Kentucky House Republican caucus in 2015 when she was 21.

According to the report, Jane Doe testified under oath Hoover sexually assaulted her more than 50 times, including groping her in a hallway and elevator and touching her between her legs.

She also says Representative Meredith made vulgar remarks to her.

Following the release of the report, the Kentucky Democratic Party sent out the following statement:

“State Representatives Hoover and Meredith must resign immediately. Screaming at female staffers in public, demanding sexual favors, and harassing women repeatedly cannot be tolerated. The behavior described by the woman they targeted and other witnesses is horrifying. Republican Leadership has ignored this for far too long, it is time for them to take action.”

The Republican Party of Kentucky also released a statement:

“Sexual harassment has existed in Frankfort for decades; far pre-dating today’s Republican Leadership. Sadly, it is only now being addressed in a real and meaningful way. The problem is not partisan, it is cultural and since becoming Acting-Speaker and now Speaker of the House, David Osborne and his team have been working hard to resolve the issue by changing procedures to help report and prevent future problems. We applaud Speaker Osborne, the bi-partisan leadership team of the LRC and Governor Bevin and his Personnel team in the Executive Branch for their continued efforts to make Frankfort and State Government as a whole a better, safer place for its employees.”

Gase hires Gregg Williams as Jets’ defensive coordinator

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Gregg Williams has been hired as the New York Jets’ defensive coordinator, the first major staff addition by Adam Gase since he became coach.

The 60-year-old Williams went 5-3 as Cleveland’s interim coach this season after Hue Jackson was fired. At his introductory news conference Monday, the offensive-minded Gase said he was looking for a “head coach of the defense” while he focuses heavily on the other side of the ball.

Williams is a controversial figure as he was suspended by the NFL for the entire 2012 season for his role in the “Bountygate” scandal in New Orleans. Saints defensive players were paid bonuses for injuring opposing team players.

Williams has since worked with Tennessee, the Rams and Browns — the past two as defensive coordinator. He previously was the head coach of Buffalo for three seasons, and has also served as the defensive coordinator for the Titans, Washington and Jacksonville.

Train stuck on tracks disrupts service to Atlanta airport

ATLANTA (AP) — A commuter train stuck on the tracks has disrupted service to and from Atlanta’s airport, the world’s busiest.

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority tweeted around 9 p.m. Tuesday that the situation left regular trains unable to reach the station at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Rail Operations Chief Dave Springstead says normal service to the airport may not resume until Thursday because officials need to bring in a crane to lift the train.

MARTA spokeswoman Stephany Fisher tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the crane isn’t scheduled to arrive until Thursday morning.

Shuttle buses were being used to take passengers from a nearby station to the airport.

The disruption comes less than three weeks before Atlanta hosts the 2019 Super Bowl.
