WASHINGTON (AP) — It was a play added to the Washington Wizards’ offense a day earlier, and it was drawn up for a guy, Paul Pierce, who’s been doing this sort of thing for the better part of two decades. With three defenders near him, Pierce made a fallaway, 21-foot jumper that went in off the backboard at the buzzer to lift the Wizards over the Atlanta Hawks 103-101 on Saturday night, despite playing without John Wall and after letting a 21-point... As he left the court after giving the Wizards a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series, Pierce was asked on TV whether he called “Bank. “Usually,” Pierce said, “I like to save those type of shots for later rounds. Told that Dennis Schroder, one of the Hawks who tried in vain to disrupt the game-winner, called it “a lucky shot,” Pierce chuckled. Then, referring to his lengthy career, Pierce retorted: “Well, I guess Schroder is going to say that, because he’s a little young. Pierce is 37, and he has a nerve in his back that acts up from time to time, including in the first half Saturday. “I’m still soaking it up,” Pierce said, “because I don’t have too many more of these left. It was the second straight day a bank shot at the buzzer won an NBA playoff game. On Saturday, Washington was missing Wall, its All-Star point guard, for a second consecutive game because of a broken left hand, but it was the Hawks who seemed out of sorts most of the evening.
to impose sanctions,' state Supreme Court says Washington's governor and top lawmakers are scrambling after the state Supreme Court unanimously ordered Aug. 13 that state government pay a $100,000-per-day fine, effective immediately, for failing to deliver a plan on how the state will meet its constitutional duty to fully fund education by 2018.

At the Northwest Maritime Center, 30 to 40 people meet each month to sing songs that “echoed across this waterfront like cell phone conversations do today,” said Mike James, one of the acknowledged leaders of Port Townsend’s Sing Shanties group.
WASHINGTON — The House approved a sweeping $1. 1 trillion spending bill Thursday night, with less than three hours before a midnight deadline to fund the government, after a day of arm-twisting, uncertainty, and unlikely alliances. The struggle to approve the measure lingered through the day, with a scheduled vote on the measure delayed for seven hours, because of an unlikely battle that pitted the White House and Republicans against Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts... Fifty-seven Democrats supported the measure, while 67 Republicans opposed it. Eight of the nine members of the Massachusetts delegation voted no, the exception being Representative Michael Capuano of Somerville, who did not vote. “With a bipartisan vote, the House has passed a responsible bill to keep the government running and address the American people’s priorities,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement released after the vote. Warren and other liberal Democrats opposed the budget deal — which was negotiated by a group of House Republicans and Senate Democrats — chiefly because it included a provision that.
