(AP) — Authorities say a pastor associated with several churches that met at a Colorado Springs hotel has been arrested on charges of child sexual assault.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Department said Thursday that 22-year-old Romello Leach faces felony charges of sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse.

Leach was being held without bail and online jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney who could speak on his behalf. No phone listing could found for him.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby described Leach as a licensed minister. She didn't identify the churches he led.

Kirby says deputies began investigating Leach in May.

The runs were called off Thursday because of rain and temperatures above freezing. Training was canceled Wednesday after warm temperatures after a heavy snowfall made the course too soft to test.

The men are scheduled to race a downhill Saturday followed by a super-G on Sunday at the resort west of Calgary.

Another training run is scheduled for Friday.

Last year's men's World Cup in Lake Louise was canceled because it wasn't cold enough to make snow in the days before the races.

Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal swept the downhill and super-G in 2015.

Court records say 34-year-old Darrel Wait, of Thornton, Colorado, is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled drug and with other crimes. Wait's attorney didn't immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.

Authorities say a Woodbury County sheriff's deputy made a traffic stop on Wait's vehicle Sunday. A police drug dog taken to the scene alerted officers to the likelihood that drugs were in the vehicle. Police say a subsequent search uncovered the pot.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Fur trappers are asking a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit from wildlife advocates who want to block the export of bobcat pelts from the United States.

Attorneys for trapping organizations said in recent court filings that the lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service infringes on the authority of state and tribal governments to manage their wildlife.

The plaintiffs in the case allege the government's export program doesn't protect against the accidental trapping of imperiled species such as Canada lynx.

More than 30,000 bobcat pelts were exported in 2015, the most recent year for which data was available.

(AP) — Business groups, federal lawmakers and public officials' associations have signed on to support South Dakota's legal bid to collect sales taxes from out-of-state internet retailers.

South Dakota is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review whether retailers can be required to collect sales taxes in states where they lack a physical presence. The case could have national implications for e-commerce.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley's office said this week that organizations ranging from the National Governors Association to the National Retail Federation have filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting South Dakota's petition to the high court.

DENVER (AP) — Whether passing or shooting, Nathan MacKinnon's stick work has been at the center of Colorado's offensive surge.

MacKinnon had three assists, including one off a faceoff with a second remaining in the second period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 3-0 on Wednesday night to remain nearly unbeatable at home.

Erik Johnson, Nail Yakupov and Gabriel Landeskog all scored off feeds from MacKinnon. Jonathan Bernier, starting in place of an ailing Semyon Varlamov, made 28 saves for his 15th career shutout and second against the Stars.

"I feel like as a line and as individuals we've all earned it," said MacKinnon, who has 20 points in his last 10 games on six goals and 14 assists. "Lately we're ju

HOUSTON (AP) — With Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson out, Trevor Ariza decided it was his turn to let it fly from 3-point range.

Ariza scored a season-high 25 points, making 7 of 10 from beyond the arc, in the Houston Rockets' 125-95 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.

"Tonight was my night," Ariza said with a grin. "If those guys are out, call on me. I get it, rightfully."

Anderson (illness) and Gordon (right calf tightness) average 17.8 3-point attempts per game, but Ariza was more than happy to pick up the slack.

Chris Paul made 4 of 7 from 3 and had 23 points and 12 assists, while James Harden added 21 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.
