Portsmouth officials say a water search is underway for a boy who went missing while swimming with family members.
Authorities say the boy disappeared shortly after 5:30 p.m. Friday. They say he's about 12 to 13 years old.
A rescue dive team was in the water looking for the boy, and a Coast Guard helicopter was searching from the air.
Officials with the state Department of Environmental Management say the boy was swimming near Old Orchard Cove in an area known more for fishing than swimming.
Even before coach Pete Carroll's dynasty had died, Southern California began a yearly cycle of sky-high preseason hopes and comparatively disappointing results.
After Carroll left and the Trojans became hamstrung by NCAA sanctions for the past half-decade, their modest winter successes never matched their enormous summer expectations.
Those hopes are high again, now that USC is free of scholarship sanctions and bolstered by its first full recruiting class in four years.
Coach Steve Sarkisian believes the Trojans can only break the cycle through hard work, and he can't wait to get to it next week.
"It's somewhat of a beauty contest right now," the second-year coach said Friday at the Pac-12 media days.
Fifteen years after Nevadans voted to legalize it, medical marijuana was sold legally in the state for the first time Friday at a dispensary in a strip mall about 5 miles east of downtown Reno.
Dressed in polo shirts, tie-dyes and button-downs, about 75 people with medical marijuana cards lined up outside Silver State Relief, between a sub shop and pizza place in Sparks, to be among the first to buy as much as a half-ounce of pot for $195.
"It smells good in there," said Dana Metz, 64, a retired General Motors worker who said he suffers from back pain, insomnia and anxiety.
The Houston Texans know they'll have a solid defense led by J. J. Watt.
As they reported for camp Friday there were far more questions about the offense.
Second-year coach Bill O'Brien will use camp to decide whether Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett will start at quarterback.
Houston also must decide who will start with DeAndre Hopkins at receiver after franchise receiving leader Andre Johnson was released and signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
They also have changes one their offensive line after releasing veteran Chris Myers, who had started the last 112 games at center.
Two police officers who shot and injured a man in downtown Denver have been cleared of wrongdoing.
District Attorney Mitch Morrissey said Friday the officers were justified when they shot 28-year-old Chisom Nwandilibe in May. Investigators say Nwandilibe had been pointing a semi-automatic pistol at random people on the street and opened fire on one of the officers.
The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/S661cb ) the officers fired back, hitting the man in the lower right arm.
Morrissey praised the officers' response, saying "we are grateful neither officer was injured or killed and that Nwandilibe was not more seriously injured."
