UPDATE: Spurs Face Game 7, Thursday

LaBron James led a title-saving charge, and now his crown will be on the line one more time in Game 7.

James powered Miami to a frantic fourth-quarter rally and overtime escape as the Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 103-100 on Tuesday night to extend the NBA Finals as far as they can go and keep Miami's repeat chances alive.

Losing his headband but keeping his cool while playing the entire second half and overtime, James finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, making the go-ahead basket with 1:43 remaining in the extra period.

Beginning Friday, June 14, 2013 between 6 p.m. and Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 3 a.m., the Republic of Texas (R.O.T.) Biker Rally will take place. Travelers should expect some delays in the downtown area.
A motorcycle procession will begin Friday, June 14, 2013 at the Travis County Exposition Center around 8 p.m. Motorcyclists will be accompanied by a police escort to control traffic and help ease temporary delays. Once the parade departs from the Expo Center, it will travel toward downtown along E. MLK Boulevard, Webberville Road, Oak Springs Road, and west on E. 11th Street. Partial road closures along this route are anticipated for the duration of the procession.
The parade will conclude along Congress Avenue, and full road closures will take place between 6 p.m. and 3 a.m. for the remainder of the R.O.T. Rally downtown.  Congress Avenue will be closed between Cesar Chavez and East 11th Street and in between Colorado and Brazos. A large number of pedestrians are expected in the East 6th Street area and a public safety closure will likely be required west of the frontage of IH-35 and Brazos.
For those traveling in the area, alternate routes are recommended including north and south along IH-35, Lamar Boulevard, and Guadalupe Street, and east and west along Cesar Chavez and 15th streets. Both directions on 11th, southbound Colorado, and northbound Brazos streets will remain open throughout the event.

Clarification on APD Hike & Bike Trail and Greenbelt 24/7 Program
The Austin Police Department Park Unit began a 24/7 Patrol Pilot Program on June 1, 2013 that will run through Monday, September 30, 2013.  This program opened the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail, the Shoal Creek Greenbelt Trail and the Johnson Creek Greenbelt Trail to 24-hour use to bicyclists only.  Any pedestrians on the trails violating curfew (between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.) will be subject to misdemeanor citation.
Officers will patrol three site locations:
  • Butler- 2101  Veterans Dr. (Mopac Blvd./Stratford north and south bank)  to  60 S. Pleasant Valley Rd (Longhorn Dam)
  • Johnson Creek-2001 Enfield to 2101 Veterans Dr.
  • Shoal Creek-1400 W.38th St. to 707 W. Cesar Chavez St
The Austin City Council has approved the public use of designated trails and the greenbelt for 24-hours a day for bicyclists. City Ordinance:http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/edims/document.cfm?id=184852
APD’s goal is to ensure public safety and to provide police visibility as members of our community utilize the trails as a safe option of transportation during lower visibility hours.
