MARSH MUSINGS

Times are tough and exuberant in the marsh these days. For the fish and crustaceans that require water-- it is a critical time and many will perish. There is essentially no water in 85-90% of the Cheyenne Bottoms. Huge numbers of birds have moved on north-- either due to their migration instincts, or by the necessity to find food. For the shore birds, gulls, herons, Ibis, avocets and black-necked stilts and some of the ducks-- it is a feast of gigantic proportions.

Celtics trail Heat 2-0 as series shifts to Boston

MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat know what's coming from the Boston Celtics. "Their all," Dwyane Wade said.
