The Biden White House is betting the U.S. economy is strong enough to withstand the threats to growth posed by inflation and the war in Ukraine. But there are growing fears of a coming economic slump among voters and some Wall Street analysts. White House officials say the next few months will test whether President Joe Biden built a durable recovery full of jobs with last year’s $1.9 trillion relief package. But economists such as Larry Summers and Joe LaVorgna warn that the policies needed to reduce inflation could risk a recession.
Ukrainian leaders are predicting more gruesome discoveries in the days ahead after retreating Russian forces left behind crushed buildings, streets strewn with destroyed cars and mounting civilian casualties that drew condemnation from across the globe. The Kremlin forces devastated the northern city of Chernihiv as part of their attempt to sweep south toward the capital before retreating. In the aftermath, dozens of people lined up to receive bread, diapers and medicine from vans parked outside a shattered school now serving as an aid-distribution point. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba warned Thursday that despite a recent Russian pullback, the country remains vulnerable. He pleaded for weapons to help face down an expected offensive in the east.
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will join a Supreme Court that is both more diverse than ever and more conservative than it’s been since the 1930s. She’s likely to be on the losing end of a bunch of important cases, including examinations of the role of race in college admissions and voting rights. The high court, with its 6-3 conservative majority, will take up those cases next term. Jackson, the first Black woman confirmed to the Supreme Court, won’t join the court for several months, until the court wraps up its work for the summer — including its verdict on whether to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling on abortion rights. 
Jackson confirmed as first Black female high court justice
Tyler Mahle allowed only an unearned run in five innings to outpitch Max Fried, Brandon Drury hit a three-run homer and the Cincinnati Reds beat Atlanta 6-3 to spoil the Braves’ World Series celebration. The Braves unveiled their World Series pennant in right field in a pregame ceremony after two parachutists landed in the outfield carrying championship banners. Fried allowed five runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He left the game with two runners on base before Drury’s homer off Collin McHugh. Austin Riley hit a two-run homer for Atlanta off right-hander Dauri Moreta in the eighth.
A rural Alaska man who threatened to assassinate both of Alaska’s U.S. senators in a series of profane messages left at their congressional offices is scheduled to be sentenced Friday. Jay Allen Johnson says he’s too old and ill to carry out his threats. He partially blamed his behavior on the mixture of pain medications and alcohol and the isolation during the pandemic prevalent during the five-month span of 2021 when he left the threatening voicemails.  Johnson of Delta Junction earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of threatening to kill a U.S. official. The government is seeking a sentence of 37 months in prison. Johnson is seeking a 30-month term or supervised release.

Officials say a suspect arrested in connection with Sunday’s mass shooting near the California state Capitol would likely still be in prison were it not for corrections officials’ use of sentencing credits authorized by voters in 2016. Smiley Allen Martin was released in February after serving less than half his 10-year sentence. He was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun. The California District Attorneys Association’s executive officer says Martin typically would not have been freed until at least May were it not for earlier release credits. 
The fight for Spirit Airlines is heating up again. Spirit said late Thursday that it will talk to JetBlue about JetBlue’s $3.6 billion bid to buy Spirit and combine the two airlines. JetBlue is trying to torpedo an earlier bid for Spirit by Frontier Airlines. Spirit says that after talking to financial and legal advisers, its directors believe the JetBlue offer of $3.3 billion could turn out to be better than the Frontier bid, but it hasn’t decided yet. Spirit says for now it’s still bound by terms of the $2.9 billion deal that Spirit and Frontier announced in February.

A man who started a 2020 wildfire that killed 12 endangered California condors and seriously injured a firefighter has been convicted of arson. Ivan Gomez was convicted Thursday in Monterey County of 16 felony counts, including arson and animal cruelty. He could face up to 24 years in prison. Prosecutors say Gomez told them he set the August 2020 Big Sur Dolan fire while illegally growing marijuana in the Los Padres National Forest. The blaze northwest of Los Angeles injured several firefighters, one seriously, destroyed 10 homes and burned down a condor sanctuary.
Reggie Lutz scored to break a second-period tie and Minnesota State scored three times in the third in the Frozen Four semifinal on Thursday night to beat big-city rival Minnesota 5-1 and advance to the national championship game.

Philipp Grubauer made 29 saves for Seattle’s second shutout, and the expansion Kraken blanked the sliding Chicago Blackhawks 2-0. Alex Wennberg scored his 10th goal in the second period and Jordan Eberle added his 18th late in the third to seal it. Grubauer was only lightly tested by the Blackhawks, who dropped their sixth straight game and occasionally were booed by their home crowd. Grubauer, who recorded his 20th career shutout, also was in net for the Kraken’s first shutout on Feb. 2 against the Islanders in New York. Chicago goalie Kevin Lankinen stopped 29 shots.

The top U.N. envoy in Mali is demanding that the country’s military leaders allow U.N. peacekeepers to visit a town where Human Rights Watch says the Malian army and foreign soldiers suspected to be Russian recently killed an estimated 300 men, one of several alleged rights abuses denounced by the U.S., Britain and France. According to Human Rights Watch, the killings in Moura were the worst single atrocity reported in Mali’s 10-year armed conflict against Islamic extremists.  Britain and France alleged at a U.N. Security Council meeting Thursday that Russian mercenaries from the Kremlin-linked Wagner Group were involved. 
LOS ANGELES — Firefighters rescued 11 people from a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood after a power outage left them stranded Thursday afternoon.
Alabama lawmakers have approved legislation to restrict the use of good behavior incentives to shorten prison sentences. The bill was put forward in reaction to the slaying of a north Alabama police officer. State senators voted 28-0 on Thursday for the bill, which seeks to prohibit anyone convicted of manslaughter from qualifying for “good time” incentives. It now goes to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey for her consideration. The bill is called the Sergeant Nick Risner Act. It is named after the 40-year-old Sheffield police officer who was killed while pursuing a suspect last year. Risner’s family watched from the Senate gallery as lawmakers voted on the bill.
