For moderate social drinkers, hopping on the wagon for a month shouldn't have been that daunting of a task. Not just any moderate social drinkers, but a handful of men and women who are exceptionally fit, as in training-for-a-marathon fit.

In 1961, Debra Reels-Mothershed entered kindergarten at Johnson Elementary School in Southeast San Diego. In 1988, she is still going to school there, only now she is the head of the class. "I am now teaching the kids of some of the people I went to school with, in the same classroom," she said.

Down . . . set . . . uncut!
