WVU overcame a six-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation and held off Vil- lanova in overtime, 75-70, in a quarterfinal round WNIT home game, on Sunday afternoon. The victory elevates the Moun- taineers (22-14) into the round of four, where they will host Temple, at 7 p.m., on Wednesday. “Needless to say, it was a great team effort,” said WVU coach Mike Carey, whose team record- ed its school-record 18th home win of the season. “Needless to say, the seniors we re n’t ready to go home. The effort by the seniors down the stretch was really, really good.” Senior forward Averee Fields led the way with 22 points and 12 rebounds. Junior guard Bria Holmes scored 17 points, while senior point guard Linda Step- ney finished with 11. Senior forward Crystal Leary contributed eight points and 11 boards off the bench. The Mountaineers overcame a remarkable performance by Vil- lanova center Emily Leer, who poured in a game-high 29 points and went 6-for-10 from the 3-point arc.

The Dominion Post Volunteers from the Bruce- ton-Sugar Valley United Methodist Church gathered Sunday to perform a living Last Super pre- s e n t at i o n . The pro- gram featured both music and drama portraying the Bibli- cal event. The show was held at the Bruceton School Gymnasium. The program is in its 12th year, and there were about 35 people involved in the presentation. There is still another chance to see the re-enactment. The Bruceton School Gymnasium will once again host the pre- sentation this week — M a u n dy Thursday. The time of the show is to be announced. Cookie monster: Thief takes cash at Girl Scout sale Associated Press ROCHESTER, N.H. — A thief in New Hampshire ap- parently had a craving for cash, not cookies. Rochester police said they are looking for a man who stole a cash box from Girl Scouts selling cookies outside a local drugstore. Police said the theft oc- curred Saturday evening during a cookie sales event outside Walgreen’s. WMUR-TV reported that a man wearing a black win- ter hat and New England Patriots jacket swiped the cash box and dashed into a car with New Jersey li- cense plates and two other people inside. Police said it’s unclear how much money was stolen. Some at NSA wanted phone program to end Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Nation- al Security Agency (NSA) con- sidered abandoning its secret pro- gram to collect and store Amer- ican calling records in the months before leaker Edward Snowden revealed the practice, current and former intelligence officials said, because some officials believed the costs outweighed the meager counterterrorism benefits. After the leak and the col- lective surprise around the world, NSA leaders strongly de- fended the phone records pro- gram to Congress and the pub- lic, but without disclosing the internal debate. The proposal to kill the pro- gram was circulating among top managers but had not yet reached the desk of Gen. Keith Alexander, then the NSA direc- tor, according to current and former intelligence officials who would not be quoted be- cause the details are sensitive. Two former senior NSA offi- cials said they doubt Alexander would have approved it. Still, the behind-the-scenes NSA concerns, which have not been reported previously, could be rel- evant as Congress decides whether to renew or modify the phone records collection when the law authorizing it expires in June. The internal critics pointed out that the already high costs of vacuuming up and storing the “to and from” infor mation from nearly every domestic landline call were rising, the system was not capturing most cellphone calls, and the pro- gram was not central to un- raveling terrorist plots, the of- ficials said. They worried about public outrage if the program ever was revealed. After the program was dis- closed, civil liberties advocates attacked it, saying the records could give a secret intelligence agency a road map to Americans’ private activities. NSA officials presented a forceful rebuttal that helped shaped public opinion. Responding to widespread criticism, President Barack Oba- ma in January 2014 proposed that the NSA stop collecting the records, but instead request them when needed in terrorism investigations from telephone companies, which tend to keep them for 18 months. Yet the president has insisted that legislation is required to adopt his proposal, and Congress has not acted. So the NSA con- tinues to collect and store records of private U.S. phone calls for use in terrorism investigations un- der Section 215 of the Patriot Act. Schools save at least $350K with alliance BY CONOR GRIFFITH The Dominion Post A partnership between Monongalia County Schools and an energy services company has produced more savings than ini- tially expected. Assistant superintendent Don- na Talerico said the school dis- trict has been working with In- diana-based Energy Savings Group (ESG), an energy services provider, for the past five years to find ways to save the district mon- ey on energy costs by switching to more efficient equipment. Talerico said the main focus so far has been upgrading the light- ing in school buildings. “We all know lighting systems have changed and new technology al- lows us to save money and improve conditions for learning, which is what we’re all about.” Audra Blackwell, business de- velopment manager for ESG, de- livered a savings report to the Mon County Schools Board of Ed- ucation at its Tuesday meeting. She explained that ESG works as a facilitator between hired con- tractors and the school board, man- aging energy audits, engineering designs and projects. Although it may hire outside construction crews, ESG bares responsibility for each of its projects. “We worked with the board since 2010, but we didn’t really Total nearly double what Energy Savings promised SEE ENERGY, 2- A WVU WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Tyson Murray/The Dominion Post Jesus, played by Brian Smith, speaks to the crowd that gathered at Bruceton Elementary School to watch The Living Last Supper on Sunday night.
