Lakota Man Signs Rights to Buy Wounded Knee Land
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By Ernestine Chasing Hawk The historic site of Wounded Knee is cold and quiet on this day that marks the 125th Anniversary of the massacre that happened on December 29, 1890. Fresh fallen snow covers the grounds of the burial site and the cold cement of the floor that once was home to the Wounded Knee Trading Post. A lone stone chimney is all that remains of the store that was once busy with Lakota customers shopping, selling goods and laughing at the jokes told in the Lakota language by one of the store clerks, Tim Giago Sr. As a child Tim Jr. rode on the back of Joan Gildersleeve's tricycle on the sidewalks that ran down the street in front of the Trading Post. His father worked as a butcher and sales clerk in the store then owned by Clive and Agnes Gildersleeve. Joan was their only child. Agnes was an Ojibwe lady from Minnesota who married Clive and moved to Wounded Knee in the late 1920s and helped to build the Trading Post. The Wounded Knee Trading Post housed a United ...

Knicks' Next Order Of Business: Trading Carmelo Anthony
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The New York Knicks are not headed anywhere good -- the sooner the organization comes to terms with that reality, the better. The question then becomes, what to do with Carmelo Anthony, the 29-year-old scoring dynamo who is set to become a free agent this summer? Since his arrival at Madison Square Garden three years ago, Anthony has dazzled Knicks fans with memorable performances, most notably his Garden-record 62 points in January. But with the good has also come the bad: porous defense, errant shot selection and little postseason success. The Knicks are now a wretched 20-31 in the top-heavy Eastern Conference. They are averaging 92.6 possessions per 48 minutes, second fewest in the league. They allow opponents to shoot 46 percent from the floor, which slots them 19th in the league. And head coach Mike Woodson is known as a defensive guru! The time to trade 'Melo is now. The deadline is Feb. 20, so the Knicks have precisely nine days to find a suitor. If owner James Dolan an ...

Michigan Upsets Michigan State 80-75: No. 21 Wolverines Stay Undefeated In Big Ten (VIDEO)
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Nik Stauskas made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3:12 left and finished with 19 points and freshman Derrick Walton Jr. scored a season-high 19, lifting No. 21 Michigan to an 80-75 win over No. 3 Michigan State on Saturday night to remain the only Big Ten team without a conference loss. The Wolverines (15-4, 7-0 Big Ten) went on a 10-0 run late in the game to take control and held on to win for just the second time in 15 games at the Breslin Center. Michigan is the first team since at least the 1996-97 season to win three straight games against top-10 teams in the regular season, according to STATS. It was coming off a win against No. 10 Iowa at home after beating then-No. 3 Wisconsin on the road. The Spartans (18-2, 7-1) had won 11 straight since losing to North Carolina at home. Michigan State's Gary Harris scored a career-high 27 points and didn't get much help offensively from his team that was without two of its best players. Freshman Alvin Ellis score ...

Bulls Looking At Options
Huffington Post - over 3 years
CHICAGO (AP) — It's been five years since the Chicago Bulls hit the jackpot in the lottery and used the golden ticket to grab Derrick Rose with the No. 1 pick. Odds are they won't land a franchise cornerstone this time. A key contributor could be in reach, though. The Bulls hold the 20th pick in the draft on Thursday, and with their superstar poised to return next season, there are several ways they could go as they try to re-establish themselves as a contender in the Eastern Conference after a 45-win season. Another big man would help. So would a shooter. A trade is a possibility, too, with the Bulls also holding the 49th overall pick, but gaging which way the Bulls are leaning is not easy. For the second straight year, they closed all draft workouts to the media and general manager Gar Forman did not make himself available to reporters. He declined comment for this article. This much is certain, ...
