oppose proposed
ballast water policy
Environmentalists tried to rally
oppositionyesterdayto aproposed
national policy for cleansing ship
ballast water to kill invasive spe-
cies, contending it is too weak and
would pre-empt stronger state
and federal rules.
The U.S. House was expected
to vote as early as today on the
measure, which comes as the
EnvironmentalProtection Agency
is preparing to release its own reg-
ulations of ship ballast - aleading
culprit in the spread of invaders
such as zebra and quagga mus-
sels in the Great Lakes and ocean
coastal waters.
Sponsored by Rep. Frank LoBi-
ondo, a New Jersey Republican,
the bill would adopt a standard
proposed by the international
Maritime Organization limit-
ing the number of live organisms
that would be permitted in bal-
last water. Vessel operators would
have to install technology to meet
the standard.
Utah man stages
deportation to
avoid jail time
A Utah man hatched a cre-
ative scheme to avoid going to
prison on a drug charge: He lied
to authorities and said he was an
illegal immigrant so he could get
deported to Mexico and evade
time behind bars.
The jig was up, however, when
27-year-old Jaime Alvarado
returned to the U.S. using his
passport and was arrested again
by Salt Lake City police.
The tactic exploited a system in
which law enforcement officials
sometimes prefer deporting ille-
gal immigrant offenders instead
of adding to an already overloaded
prison system.
At thetine of his initial arrest,
Alvarado claimed he was Saul
Quiroz and had emigrated from
Mexico illegally. He is actually an
American citizen.
CANNES, France
Obama talks with
leaders of G20
His political fortunes and his
nation's economy at risk, Presi-
dent Barack Obama on Thursday
implored European leaders to
swiftly work out a eurozone res-
cue plan, aware of the potential
fallout at home if they fail.
Obama, at the French Riviera
for a summit of the Group of 20
leading industrialized and devel-
oping economies, pledged to be a
partner in helpingthe Europeans
cope with the economic emer-
gency. But his aides insisted that
Europe's problem, brought on by

the threat of a Greek default, was
one it had to fix.
Taking his jobs-first message
abroad, Obama said the goal
was getting people back to work.
"That means," Obama said,
"we're going to have to resolve
the situation here in Europe."
Mayor of Mexican
city shot, killed
The mayor of La Piedad was
handing out campaign fliers out-
side a fast-food restaurant when a
black SUV pulled up, a hand hold-
ing a pistol appeared at its window,
and he went down with a shot.
Ricardo Guzman, 45, died late
Wednesday in an ambulance rac-
ing to the hospital, one of more
than two dozen Mexican mayors
who've been assassinated since
2006, the majority presumed vic-
tims ofdrugviolence.
But Guzman's killing raised
new questions about organized
crime's impact on Mexico's
democracy, specifically the Nov.
13 elections in the western state
of Michoacan, where Guzman had
been handing out campaign mate-
rial for gubernatorial candidate
Luisa Maria Calderon, President
Felipe Calderon's sister.

For the .Michigan program,
landing McGary is nothing short
of a coup. He's the highest-rated
recruit to commit to the Wol-
verines since LaVell Blanchard
in 1999 and could be the most
dynamic Michigan player since
Detroit native Chris Webber -
part of the famed Fab 5 - roamed
the Crisler Arena court 20 years
It's a sign, too, that concerns
about Michigan coach John
Beilein's recruiting competence
might be overblown. Some have
criticized him for an inability to
pull in star recruits in the past.
McGary adds to an already
strong 2012 class, joining AAU
teammate Glenn Robinson III
and Canadian wing Nick Staus-
kas. ESPN.com now ranks Michi-
gan fifth in its 2012 recruiting
rankings, after not being in the
top 25 before McGary commit-
ted. The Wolverines also already
have four commits for 2013.
It's also a mark of status, as elite
national recruits typically just
consider the traditional basketball
powers. Having McGary might
not help land any future recruits,
since they wouldn't likely get to
play with the post man - he's
widely considered a one-and-done
player. Still, McGary's decision
indicates that Michigan is a pro-
gram on the rise, and one that can
battle with the elites - one that
recruits would want to consider.
"Winning on the court is
what gets recruits, and if Mitch
McGary helps you get victories,
that's going to help you recruit,"
Snow said. "That's the bottom

McGary initially attended
Chesterton HighSchool, the alma
mater of current senior guard
Zack Novak. Though McGary
was a freshman at Chesterton
when Novak was a senior there,
they rarely played together -
McGary was on JV and only
occasionally played varsity.
After two solid years on varsi-
ty, McGary transferred to Brew-
ster Academy - a prep school in
Wolfeboro, NH. known for its
basketball prowess - to repeat
his junior year. McGary, who
suffers from attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder, was hav-
ing maturity and grade issues at
Chesterton. His parents thought
the discipline of Brewster would
be good for him.
"I think he just took a bit more
(time to mature),"said Chesterton
coach Tom Peller. "Sometimes
these taller kids aren't as mature,
and he just needed another year
for maturity, so I think it was a
smart move for him to go to the
"(Now) you can see he's
matured a lot, just by talking to
A lot of the credit for McGary's
commitment should go to Michi-
gan assistant coach Bacari Alex-
ander, who Snow said did a "hell
of a job" recruiting him. It also
didn't hurt that McGary's AAU
coach, Wayne Brumm, was a
big advocate for Beilein and the
Michigan program.
Still, the decision was ulti-
mately McGary's to make.
"His main factor is commit-
ting to a coach that he believes
can bring the best out of him,"
Brumm said on Monday. "Some-
body that he can trust, and (a)
program where he really gets
along with the guys, where he
sees himself going to a campus

comfortable here."'
