A resident of a battered women's shelter fatally shot a woman and wounded two other people Wednesday, then barricaded herself in a basement room before giving up, police said. Juanita Whitaker, 40, who apparently was despondent over an alleged sexual assault, opened fire at the Brandon Center with a .38-caliber pistol, police said. A woman identified as Jeannie Archuleta, 24, of Denver, an employee at the shelter, died of a gunshot wound at a hospital, police spokeswoman Anne Montoya said.

Former boxing champion Mike Tyson, who served three years in prison on a rape conviction, says he empathizes with basketball star Kobe Bryant and the sexual assault charges faced by the Los Angeles Laker guard. "I've been in an ordeal like him, and I know how easy it is for a young man to be a big shot, a big star in America's eyes and then get in another arena and he's nobody. That means the judicial arena," Tyson, 37, said in an interview airing Monday on "Access Hollywood."

The judge in the Kobe Bryant sexual assault case asked the prosecution and defense Tuesday to work together to produce an edited version of disputed transcripts that can be released to the public. The order came one day after Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer requested that trial Judge Terry Ruckriegle release redacted transcripts from a closed-door hearing on the alleged victim's sexual conduct that were accidentally e-mailed to seven news organizations.

SEATTLE -- An Arctic drilling rig beached for several days on a remote, rocky shore in southern Alaska was refloated early Monday and towed toward safe harbor in a sheltered bay on Kodiak Island. The Kulluk, which ran aground New Year's Eve after it broke free of its tow lines during severe weather, was hooked up to new lines and hoisted off the rocks toward safety during a high tide. Officials with the U.S. Coast Guard and Shell Alaska, which operated the rig during offshore oil operations this summer, were taking the vessel to a location in Kiliuda Bay, where it could be carefully inspected for damage.

Now that it's all over, we learned that sometimes the games really do match the hype, that everyone here can pause long enough to acknowledge the good times gone by, and what would be the perfect gift for Shaquille O'Neal, the man we thought had everything. "I don't have a hatchet," O'Neal said. In other words, he won't be burying one with Kobe Bryant any time soon.

Unbuckling the mailbag: Question: Who are you to decide whether or not Penn State should be allowed to play in the postseason? Report the news and keep your opinions to yourself. Boyd R. Zumwalt III Answer: It is not my decision to decide on Penn State's bowl fate.

And what about potential opposition from corporate sponsors?
