ORLANDO, Fla. - Matt Every's comeback was now as complete as Adam Scott's collapse. Winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday after being down as many as nine shots to Scott during the tournament was only part of his rally. Every had been down even further than that: The PGA Tour took away his playing privileges and, effectively, his livelihood with a 2010 suspension. No wonder he at last dropped his stoic shield and choked back tears. Every lightly pounded his fist on a table at his news conference, shaking his head, finally a tour winner.

GAZIANTEP, Turkey -- Turkish fighter jets shot down a Syrian warplane Sunday in an embattled border zone, and Turkey and Syria each insisted the plane was in their airspace when it was downed. The downing was the latest border clash between onetime allies who have turned on one another because of Syria's 3-year-old civil war. Turkey has sided with the opposition in that conflict, angering the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Turkey blamed Syria for what it said was an aerial encroachment Sunday, while Syrian state television said a military official called Turkey's action “blatant aggression.” A monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said initial reports indicated the plane came down on the Syrian side of the frontier.

The Lakers aren't going anywhere this season, and Ryan Kelly might not be either. For Kelly, that would be a good thing. It would mean he's still in the NBA. A late second-round pick out of Duke in last year's draft, the 6-foot-11 power forward wasn't even assured of making the Lakers' roster. The rookie didn't have a full preseason to prove himself because he was still recovering from surgery to repair a screw that was first inserted in his right foot to stabilize a broken bone in March 2012.

All Tricia and Bill Lammers wanted was to get their son, Blaec, help to deal with his mental illness. Tricia went so far as to call police in 2012 and tell them her son had just purchased an AR-15 and another semi-automatic weapon. It was Blaec who told police that he was thinking about shooting up a movie theater showing a "Twilight" film detailing the forbidden love of a teenage girl for a vampire in a universe where werewolves also roam free. Blaec never carried out any attack, police said.

An Anaheim police K-9 handler is "devastated" as he waits to see if his German shepherd will fully recover from being shot Thursday during a chase of probation suspects on the run. Anaheim Police Lt.

Authorities have said Bruno is expected to survive, but that the 12 to 18 hours immediately after...

When the officers neared the residence, they saw the probationer with two unidentified men, who ran away.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson weren't on the grounds, and then Bubba Watson exited in mid-sneeze with allergies. Short eight Masters green jackets and losing substantial star power by the hole, the Arnold Palmer Invitational needed a break. Adam Scott provided it Thursday with a resounding round of 62 to tie a course record, although the lowest score in 30 years at Bay Hill was in jeopardy of never happening, either. In keeping with the tournament theme, a sickly Scott also considered pulling out just before the event, not that he'd miss it all that much.
