Enrollments in the nation's healthcare program have nearly concluded, but for states whose insurance exchanges have been crippled by technical problems, a difficult phase is just beginning: potential legal battles and a race to overhaul their systems before federal grant money dries up. Officials in Oregon, Massachusetts and Maryland are exploring legal options as they sever contracts with those who created their sites. All three states are considering a move to the federal exchange, which had its own grievous start-up problems but is now largely stable, or licensing the technology of a more successful state such as Connecticut.

This is a great example of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Oregon in an outstanding vintage. The grapes come from the famous Shea Vineyard in Yamhill County. The result is a Pinot with lovely dark-toned fruit, a pretty nose of rose petals and cherries, and a smooth, silky texture. And you don't need to know a thing about wine or Pinot Noir to appreciate its beauty. It's great with sautéed calf's liver, fried quail, a roast chicken or a pot pie.

University of Oregon junior Alex Rovello drowned Saturday after failing to surface following a 60-foot dive into Tamolitch Falls in Willamette National Forest in western Oregon. Friends and bystanders tried to rescue the tennis player when he failed to surface after diving from a cliff into the Blue Pool at the base of the falls, but they were hampered by the deep, 37-degree water, the Linn County Sherriff's Department said. "The Oregon tennis family is devastated by the loss of Alex," Oregon men's tennis Coach Nils Schyllander said . "He was an amazing person and teammate and his spirit will live on forever with all of us who were fortunate enough to have known him. " The popular swimming hole, located about two miles north of a campground, is so remote that one witness needed to run two miles before getting cell service to call 911, reported . Rovello's body was recovered by dive teams and deputies more than 30 feet from the water's surface.

The NCAA's ongoing investigation into the Oregon football program appears to be crawling toward conclusion. It may still be months before a final verdict is rendered, but documents released Monday reveal the NCAA and the school concluded “major” violations were committed. The parties do not agree on the severity of the violations, which will necessitate Oregon appearing before the Committee on Infractions sometime this spring or summer. Oregon has proposed two years probation with a reduction of one scholarship each of the next three seasons.

LAS VEGAS -- There's been a certain strain on the young faces of recent UCLA basketball teams during this time of year, a visible look of weariness and distraction, the open scars of a long season under a heavy hand. Call it Ben Howland's Sighs of March. All of which made it so startling to see the Bruins storming through Las Vegas early Thursday night hitting every 16, letting everything ride, going all in on every hand with swaggers and smiles. Welcome to Steve Alford's Wilds of March?

LAS VEGAS -- The good UCLA basketball team showed up Thursday night. There were smiles. There were dunks. There was even Kyle Anderson hugging Travis Wear after a fastbreak layup. This was the Bruins' rolling thunder review. The 82-63 victory over Oregon in the MGM Grand Garden Arena left Coach Steve Alford with a lucky 7-0 record for Las Vegas postseason games - six with New Mexico in the Mountain West tournament. Yet, the Bruins have stood on this precipice before this season.

When Jackie Yerby and a small band of devout Catholics go to the cathedral for Mass this Ash Wednesday, they will be sending an unmistakable message. Pinned to their lapels will be big white buttons that proclaim, "Catholic Oregonians for Marriage Equality. " The newly formed group wants to show that "just because we're Catholic doesn't mean we don't support same-sex marriage," said Yerby, who served on the board of Catholic Charities of Portland for six years. "We support same-sex marriage because we are Catholic.

Arizona clinched the conference regular-season title while the Bruins were sorting out issues in the locker room. Some things were unsettling by halftime. BOX SCORE: UCLA 74, Oregon State 69 Steve Alford, UCLA's always dapper-looking coach, ditched his jacket. That he didn't consider replacing it with a straitjacket was to his credit. In the first half the Bruins showed why they've lagged so far behind Arizona in the standings.
