When flamboyant evangelist Tony Alamo goes to court next month in Newhall on charges that he ordered followers to discipline a young boy by striking him 140 times with a board, he will be represented by an attorney who may be walking familiar ground.

SOCHI, Russia - Improvements were made to the much-maligned halfpipe at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park but not enough to satisfy the leading Olympic snowboarders. The high-profile extreme sports stars had extreme reactions after a practice session scheduled for earlier in the day was moved to Monday night with the hope that conditions would improve. Sloppy snow and edgy riders were not an ideal combination. The men's event starts Tuesday and the women's on Wednesday. FRAMEWORK: Best images from the Sochi Olympics Two-time gold-medal winner Shaun White said that he had a "frustrating" practice.
