For nine years, Claudine Walton has treasured the fading newspaper photograph, a memento of happier times. In the picture, her son Darrell Allums is wearing his UCLA basketball uniform, sitting on the bench next to coach Larry Brown. The scene is from Allums' final college game, the 1980 NCAA championship between UCLA and the University of Louisville. Her son played just four minutes that night at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis in a game that UCLA lost by 5 points.

A federal appeals court Wednesday upheld the death sentence for a former Domino's pizza employee who was convicted of killing three co-workers nearly 20 years ago. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Mitchell Sims' contentions that his attorney had failed to present evidence of possible post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from childhood abuse or possible brain damage. The panel also refused to overturn the sentence based on statements made by the prosecutor.

The concept of time saved--perhaps one of the most precious commodities of American culture today--has become a marketing ploy used by everyone from airlines to pizza makers. Now it has come back to haunt one of the companies most closely linked with it. Domino's Pizza, the nation's No. 1 pizza delivery chain--which built its reputation on a 30-minute guarantee--scrapped its quick-delivery promise Tuesday. The move was prompted by a jury award last week of nearly $79 million to a St.

Two hundred fifty workers began laying the foundation this month for a new Roman Catholic cathedral here. The start of construction of the mammoth structure has unleashed a storm of controversy about its design and political implications. A wide range of Nicaraguans, including several prominent supporters of conservative Cardinal Miguel Obando y Bravo, have criticized the new cathedral--paid for by a U.S. pizza magnate--as an example of cultural imperialism.

In the life of nearly every American boy, there comes a hot summer night when he dreams big. Sitting, perhaps, on a dark front porch with his closest friends, he says aloud what he would do if he had all the money in the world. A billion-zillion dollars at the very least. Buy some really incredible cars and impress everybody. Build a huge skyscraper--the biggest one around--that can be seen for miles.

* Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Domino's Pizza Inc. said it will take a slice out of its work force and eliminate about 100 U.S. jobs as it invests in new stores and technology to sell pizza via the Internet. The No. 2 U.S. pizza seller said the job cuts, mostly administrative positions from more than 3,000 salaried U.S. jobs, were part of a strategy to streamline operations while expanding sales.

Hoping to forget the unpleasantries of 1992 and get a fresh start in the new year, some companies are shopping for new public images by reintroducing themselves to American consumers. Troubled computer maker International Business Machines and Domino's Pizza Inc., for example, unveiled new advertisements last week designed to show that they're keeping up with the times. Procter & Gamble's Max Factor line is planning a new assortment of items intended to recapture business lost to competitors.

A Domino's Pizza delivery driver was held up at gunpoint in the 900 block of Gill Avenue. The 21-year-old man had just gotten out of his car about 7 p.m. Thursday to deliver a pizza when he was approached by two men, said Sgt. Ken Dobbe of the Port Hueneme Police Department. One of the men pointed a shotgun and the other took an unknown amount of money from the driver's pockets. The man holding the shotgun was wearing a black hat, black T-shirt and blue pants.

Domino's Pizza announced this week it has dropped its long-standing ban on bearded employees and settled a 12-year-old lawsuit that accused the company of discriminating against a Sikh, whose religion forbids shaving. Changing American fashions, not conscience, prompted the nation's No. 2 pizza chain to drop its no-beard policy effective Monday, said Tim McIntyre, vice president for corporate relations.

For five months, David Papa's boss at a Domino's Pizza made comments about his body, touched him and told him she loved him. Six days after he told her to stop, she fired him. Now, a federal judge has ordered the pizza chain to pay Papa $237,000 in damages in the first case the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ever took to trial involving a man harassed by a woman. "When it first happened, people didn't want to hear it.

I agree completely with all points specified and stated by Joseph Papp in his July 2 Counterpunch article ("NEA: Once More Unto the Breach"). Again we are faced with a "long, hot summer" politically speaking and our lawmakers don't know what to do with themselves. Instead of seeking effective legislation (their appointed task!), they are expending vast amounts of energy on such media-hot issues as abortion, flag-burning and, of course, censorship.

The Domino's Pizza man in Willowbrook has been told to forget about quick delivery of one order. It's the $7 million that a jury ordered an insurance company to pay pizzeria owner Dennis Stephan. It could be two years before the cash arrives--if it ever does. A jury awarded the judgment six months ago after Stephan sued the Insurance Co. of North America and one of its agents for allegedly failing to reimburse him when his Domino's outlet was burned down in the 1992 riots.

Dennis Stephan may soon be rolling in dough. And we're not talking about the pasty base to that Pepperoni and Sausage Deluxe that he was happily flipping in the air Tuesday. The 33-year-old Willowbrook pizza maker was wearing an ear-to-ear grin because of a $7-million verdict he has won against an insurance company that failed to honor its policy after his Domino's Pizza outlet was destroyed in the 1992 riots.
