A hip replacement and two knee replacements could not slow down Gill Schmidt and Mike Aubrey.

PARIS — Food nourishes the tiny Rue du Nil from the dim light of morning — when the first deliveries start going out to Paris' most sought-after restaurants — until well after midnight, when the young chef who transformed an unchic side street into a culinary destination finally closes up.
GLENDALE – Soon after the nets were cut down about year ago and a perennial power was dismantled, Division I girls basketball coaches knew for the first time in years a state title was in the offing.
The first eight minutes looked like an intrasquad scrimmage. The next 24 minutes played out like a team which won the state championship.
TEMPE – There were whispers.
J'ontar Coleman had one message for the Desert Vista administration when he interviewed for the girls basketball coaching position:
Eating well can be hard to do — but not because of a lack of options. Farmers markets make finding fresh-picked produce (and a variety of locally made specialty foods and products, like hummus and bath soaps) convenient in and around the East Valley.
Just like every other aspect of her game, Sabrina Haines has worked on controlling the mini-outbursts directed at no one but herself.
TEMPE – This time Desert Vista kept the throttle down.

Markus Howard, Perry, Guard: He’s been the cream of this freshman crop. It’s not simply his burgeoning talent, maturity, the early makings of a goatee, or willingness to make the big plays at crunch time that vaults the freshman guard to Player of the Year candidacy. To Markus, it’s also about being part of a family in which his older brother, senior Jordan Howard, scores nearly 10 points per game fewer than last season (25.6 to 16.4) and has deferred to his younger brother while taking on a different role. It’s worked, as the Howard brothers led the Pumas to the No. 4 seed and nearly knocked off No. 1 Corona del Sol in the Super Sectional final. Markus has won multiple games this season on last-second shots, but he also defers: “He’s pushed me since I was little, and he has a 4.5 GPA so there’s even competition to get better grades,” Markus said of Jordan. “His knowledge of the game and the way he approaches the seriousness of life. He lets me know what I do right and wrong. I’m my toughest critic but he does tell me a lot, and for the most part I hear them out.” While Barcello claimed to have heard opposing fans’ “freshman” chants once this season, Markus said he wouldn’t know because he doesn’t hear background noise, except the side effect after his older brother beats him 1-on-1.Well-spoken and polished, Markus’ NBA aspirations aren’t a secret, but he knows one person never makes a team. “I’m around a good group of guys who trust me and it’s been a great opportunity for me to be in,” Markus said. “I’m just getting started.”
