A windy storm spread snow and ice across the northern Rockies today, glazing highways and felling power lines, while snow and high wind around the Great Lakes created near-blizzard conditions in Michigan and closed many of that state's schools. Elsewhere, residents of Maine shoveled away the weekend's accumulation of heavy snow, with drifts up to five feet high.

Michigan has a No. 1 ranking in more than football. It also has the nation's top-ranked merchandising operation. Wolverine backers buy more sweat shirts, caps and souvenirs than fans from any other school, according to the Atlanta-based Collegiate Licensing Co. The company handles licensing contracts for 160 schools, including Michigan. Florida is second, followed by Penn State. And Nebraska, which is No. 2 in the football poll, falls to No. 8 on the fan shopping list.

UCLA and Michigan will be on a scavenger hunt today to locate a shred of dignity, a measure of pride and an ounce of their former splendor. The Bruins (2-4) are playing for the third time on national television. The first two ended in one-sided losses to Duke and Kansas. Worse were games mercifully shown only on regional cable, upsets at the hands of San Diego and Northern Arizona.

"We got great news as far as the injury," Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr said during a conference call. "He'll miss this week, but we're very excited about the news we've received."

When passing a controversial resolution to help black schoolchildren learn standard English through Ebonics, the speech patterns many use at home, the Oakland School District reminded the nation of what language means to us. It is our very beginning. Once we as toddlers are given the gift of the communicating self, we can forever discover, learn and expand in a world of common symbols.

Rumors about violence after the deadly shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, coupled with doomsday predictions associated with the Mayan calendar, have led officials to close more than 30 schools in Michigan two days early for the holidays. In a posting on the Lapeer school district website, Supt. Matt Wandrie said the false rumors of possible violence, coupled with the end-of-time furor surrounding the completion of the current Mayan calendar cycle, led the district to cancel Thursday and Friday's classes, along with sports events and other extracurricular activities.

Expanding the scope of the nation's civil rights laws, the Supreme Court ruled Monday that Jews, Arabs and others who suffer discrimination based on their "ancestry" are protected under statutes barring racial discrimination. In two unanimous decisions, the justices concluded that Congress in the original 1866 Civil Rights Act intended not only to protect blacks but also immigrants and others who suffer because of their nationality or appearance.
