HOUSTON (AP) -- Of the five Super Bowl rings Robert Kraft has earned as owner of the New England Patriots, one of them has an unlikely owner: Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Kraft took part in a recent NFL Network series of interviews about Super Bowl rings and retold a story about his ring from 2005's Super Bowl 39. He says he was on a business trip to Russia later that year when he showed the ring to Putin. Kraft says Putin put on the ring and didn't give it back.
A Putin spokesman said in 2013 that the ring was a gift and the Russian leader would send Kraft a replacement if he wanted. The spokesman says Kraft's ring is on display at the Kremlin.

FRASER, Mich. (AP) -- Officials feel flushed with success after water conservation efforts prevented Super Bowl fans from adding to problems associated with a suburban Detroit sinkhole.
Macomb County public works chief Candice Miller warned Friday that thousands of football fans flushing toilets at halftime Sunday night could overwhelm a broken sewer line blamed for the sinkhole.
But she told radio station WWJ everything went OK on Sunday and that she believes efforts to conserve water in the affected communities "made the difference."
Crews are building a bypass to get around the broken sewer line in Fraser, but it's not ready yet. The line affects more than 300,000 people in 11 communities. The station says some people held back on flushing and some restaurants used paper plates to curb dishwashing water use.

PARIS (AP) -- French presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon can't be in two places at once.
But the 65-year-old hard-left hopeful is trying his hardest thanks to advances in technology.
As Melenchon held a rally in Lyon on Sunday, a hologram of him was projected by satellite to crowds in Paris.
Critics called it a headline-grabbing gimmick that obscures his firebrand politics.
Meanwhile, supporters of conservative candidate Francois Fillon hit the streets Sunday to try to stem damage to his campaign. They distributed tracts entitled "Stop the Manhunt."
Prosecutors are investigating the jobs that Fillon's wife and two of their five children had working as his parliamentary aides. The preliminary probe involves suspicions of embezzlement and misappropriation of public funds
He denies wrongdoing and says he is the victim of a slander campaign.

DILLSBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Police say a Pennsylvania woman tried to buy a house by forging a $1.2 million check from a credit union.
Police in Carroll Township, York County, say that happened in January.
Investigators say 49-year-old Katherine Kempson used the internet to copy a business logo from Members First Federal Credit Union to create the $1.2 million check. She's also accused of writing a bad check for $60,000 to a real estate agency as part of the bogus transaction.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Kempson. She faces a preliminary hearing March 20 on forgery and bad check charges.
Police Sgt. David Smith says the credit union's fraud department first raised red flags, prompting police to investigate.

LONDON (AP) -- Vandals have struck a banana yellow car blamed for ruining visitors' photos of a famous English village.
"Move," someone scratched into the hood of Peter Maddox's car in the Cotswolds village of Bibury as part of a January rampage that caused around 6,000 pounds ($8,000) in damages.
For the past three years, the 84-year-old widower has parked his Vauxhall Corsa outside his retirement cottage on Arlington Row in Bibury. The grey-stone 14th century homes are among the oldest inhabited dwellings in Britain and feature in the artwork of British passports.
With locals' public backing, the retired dentist says he won't have his style dictated by tourists. Told by mechanics that his car was probably an insurance write-off, Maddox says he plans to buy a replacement - in lime green.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ The voicemail box for Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch was full, so a Utah woman tried using a pizza to ask for a "no" vote on one of President Trump's Cabinet nominees.
The ham-and-pineapple pizza that Julia Silge ordered for Hatch's Salt Lake City office to convey a brief note against Education nominee Betsy DeVos didn't reach its destination, but the message did.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Hatch's office refused the delivery because it didn't order the pizza. However, Hatch's staff ultimately saw Silge's Twitter post of her online order. Her tweet was retweeted thousands of times.
Hatch's office said in a statement that it appreciated creative ways being used to reach the senator while it deals with a large volume of callers.
