Douglas P. Blankenship was one of four children born to a coal miner's family in Argo, a hill town of 175 people in the Pine Mountains of eastern Kentucky. After his graduation from Eastern Kentucky University, Blankenship left the hills for good in 1972 and moved to California. Over the years, he acquired all the trappings of the good life--a closet full of handmade silk suits, a gold-colored Rolls-Royce and a $1.5-million home overlooking the ocean in Capistrano Beach.

Mike White, the boxer who is seven feet tall and weighs 275 pounds, was fighting in the Spruce Goose dome in Long Beach last week. The great plane was only slightly more immense.

Holman wanted to hit White, to be the first to seriously mar that regal face, but it was unreachable.

Three times a month, V Mathews climbs onto an auditorium stage and tells an audience of drunk drivers about the deaths of her two teen-age sons in accidents 14 years apart. The 63-year-old woman from Milwaukie, Ore., has told her story hundreds of times in front of strangers who are present only because a judge ordered them to be there. Mathews still cries into the microphone when she describes how she held her son Roger's head while he fought for his last breaths.
