On a team of World Cup superstars--Romario, Hristo Stoitchkov, Gheorghe Hagi and Ronald Koeman--the most talked-about player this season for Spanish League power FC Barcelona has been a thin, 20-year-old midfielder with one of international soccer's most famous names. In the tradition of Brazilian and many Spanish players, he prefers to be called by only his first name: Jordi.

During the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, Ota Pavel's father and his two brothers were sent to concentration camps. Pavel helped support his family by working in a coal mine and illegally catching fish. After the war, he became a sportswriter, best known for "Dukla Among the Skyscrapers," a novel about a Czech soccer team's visit to America. Later, Pavel wrote two collections of short stories based on his father's life and his own.

For all the madness and hype of modern-day Super Bowls, it's interesting to note how the NFL came to have its first championship game, 66 years ago today. In the 1932 season, the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans ended the regular season with 6-1 records, and the league quickly put together a title game--indoors--at Chicago Stadium. Chicago won, 9-0, and claimed the title, although the result was listed as a regular-season game.

Orange County wasn't born yesterday. But most of its high-rise hotels were born after 1974--the year that California adopted an ordinance mandating automatic sprinkler systems in new buildings taller than 75 feet. Therefore, the vast majority of high-rise hotels in the county are protected by sprinklers in every room.

October 18, 2002 | Joan Anderson Growe, Joan Anderson Growe was Minnesota secretary of state from 1975 to 1999.
MINNEAPOLIS -- In 1974, the year I was elected Minnesota's secretary of state, my state was the first in the nation to implement election-day registration. Over 24 years in office, I supervised a registration process that consistently gave our state the highest voter turnout rate in the nation, with no increase in election fraud. On Nov. 5, voters in California will decide on election-day voter registration.

When I first met Marcel Montecino he was playing the piano at a place on Sunset Boulevard called the Cafe Brasserie. He was a quiet, moody kind of guy and his music reflected the slow and bluesy attitude one associates with lazy summer nights in a city of dreams. You get lost in music like that, remembering places you've never been and seeing faces you've never seen, like misty segments of a romantic fantasy.
