The Nevada State Athletic Commission fined and suspended boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on Thursday over a failed drug test last year before a Mexican Independence Day fight in Las Vegas. The popular 27-year-old fighter, who's the son of a famous boxer by the same name, tested positive for marijuana in September after his first professional loss. Chavez (46-1-1) was suspended for nine months from the date of the fight and fined $900,000, which amounts to 30% of his $3-million purse for the bout against Sergio Martinez . Chavez, who spoke by phone from Mexico, said through an interpreter that he was sorry for his actions and had taken the drug to curb his stress eight or nine days before the much-anticipated fight.

Some residents estimated up to 500 people were missing in the scores of buried shacks. At least seven of the children killed were attending first Holy Communion parties when buried under the landslide Sunday in Villa Tina, an impoverished area of the industrial city of Medellin.

No, No, No, No, No! This "new" graphics thing you're trying to do in the sports section is not working. Please go back to the old format. It was so much better. The "Day In Sports" is much more difficult to read. I miss the pictures of the journalists as well as the sports teams' icons on Page 2. This style has got to go. The whole look looks outdated . . . from the '50s or something. What happened to the big bold descriptions (i.e "Avalanche vs. Kings")? It looks so blah now. Please fix this travesty.
