On its Web site, the WTA Tour is inviting those who tap into it to identify what they regard as Kim Clijsters' ranking accomplishment. The choices: - 2005 U.S. Open. - World No. 1. - WTA Tour championships. - 2005 comeback. Give me "None of the above." My "X" would go into a box for "Greatest person." Clijsters had a quality that Louie Kelcher had when he was playing for the Chargers. She was lovable. ... [full story]

MALIBU, Calif. - There were few fireworks on the opening day of the arbitration hearing to determine whether cyclist Floyd Landis used illicit amounts of testosterone in winning last summer's Tour de France. Just a lot of enzymes, acetates, delta units, isotope ratios, metabolites, upstream precursors, chromatography peaks and linearity checks. Landis' long-awaited hearing began Monday morning at Pepperdine University's law school, with a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean from a patio on one ... [full story]

Spring has finally sprung and it’s time to trade in the skis and snowshoes for the ‘ole hiking boots. Even though the Cascades still lay under a thick, white blanket of snow, the high desert offers plenty of hiking opportunities. One of my favorite destinations to the east for a spring outing is the Painted Hills, one of the three units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The year’s first wildflowers are just ...

A brilliant flash, a subtle hum and a sweeping zinger mean it's hummingbird breeding time.The broad-billed hummingbird, with its hovering wings, metallic green feathers and red-orange bill, probes the nectar-filled recesses of a thistle flower. Detecting the vital juices, the hummer's long, grooved tongue with a split and frayed tip darts to the dainty reservoir and laps up the sweet succulent like a fine brush. The tiny flier also has a taste for pollen ... [full story]

Ranchers, Conservationists Say Legislation Based on “Hysteria” SALEM, Ore. – A coalition of ranchers, farmers, conservationists, and animal welfare advocates sharply criticized the Oregon House for passing legislation this week that would overturn Measure 18, the 1994 voter-approved ban on the use of hounds for hunting cougars. If signed into law, the House proposal (HB 2971) would permit the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) to deputize trophy hunters as government agents and allow the ... [full story]

He has won more than $1.3 million in tournament play. CNS Photo. A: The easiest way is probably white-collar crime.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Carl Nafzger and Larry Jones, trainers of 1-2 Kentucky Derby finishers Street Sense and Home Spun, respectively, crossed paths Sunday morning on the Churchill Downs backstretch.

SAN DIEGO - Before she'd ever seen the Torrey Pines golf courses, Mimi Griffin, the woman who has staged the U.S. Open's biggest parties since 1995, knew well of Southern California's reputation as a quirky, laid-back, spoiled and sometimes indifferent sports market. So when Griffin came to San Diego in May 2005 to begin sort of a corporate hospitality pep rally for the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, she didn't know what to expect. ... [full story]

CHICAGO - Obviously, all Jason Marquis needed was an out-of-whack contract that would put crazy pressure on him, the uniform number of a disgraced ex-icon and a spot in a rotation overseen by one of Chicago's most-criticized coaches. "Cubs Stud Jason Marquis" ... yep, all of us should have seen that coming. Just because he was arguably the National League's worst starter in 2006 and just because his career had been mediocrity personified (even though ... [full story]

SAN DIEGO - Each year before the start of the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pa., the massive hill that overlooks historic Lamade Stadium is green and lush. Then fans begin sliding down on cardboard boxes, leaving the hill brown and barren by the end of the two-week event. In 2001, members of the Oceanside (Calif.) American Little League team wanted so badly to join in the tradition and slide down that hill. ... [full story]
