Pushing toward his fifth trip to the Winter Olympics, Bode Miller faces some tough obstacles, and it's not surprising that age ranks at the top of the list. “I'm healthy enough that I'm skiing as hard as I can," Miller, speaking from Germany, said on the "Today" show Thursday. "But I'm definitely feeling my age ... I'm trying to catch up to the young kids right now.” The 36-year-old Miller, who made his Olympic debut in 1998 and has won five medals since, would be one of the oldest American athletes at the 2014 Sochi Games in February.

The California Assembly decided today that race horses should just say neigh to drugs. The lower house approved a bill that would prohibit giving most drugs or medications to horses for 48 hours before race time. The bill, AB216 by Assemblyman Dick Floyd (D-Carson), was sent to the Senate by a 67-3 vote. Floyd said a test by an independent laboratory of 1,024 urine samples taken from horses racing at California tracks showed 109 positive for 21 different illegal substances.

Joe Torre can read the standings just like everybody else. And just like everybody else, he sees his Dodgers slowly sagging closer to last place than first place in the National League West. That's not the kind of momentum a manager wants to see with six weeks left in the season. "We can't talk about moving up in the standings until we can put a streak together," he said after the Dodgers' 5-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, the team's eighth setback in 12 games. "We're put ourselves in that position.

Emergency teams stepped up a desperate rescue effort Wednesday despite fading hopes of finding any survivors two days after a devastating explosion killed at least 25 coal miners in the Upper Big Branch mine. Drilling crews dug three bore holes deep into the rocky mountainside, and planned two others, to vent the deadly buildup of highly combustible methane gas, carbon monoxide and coal dust that forced rescue crews to retreat early Tuesday. Carbon monoxide pouring out of the first 1,100-foot-deep bore hole was so toxic -- nearly 300 times the concentration considered safe -- that the drilling crew was nearly overcome, officials said.
