Tessla, the 2-year-old filly champion of England in 1988, will make her U.S. debut Saturday at Del Mar in the $75,000-added Osunitas Handicap for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles on the turf. "She was trained in England by Henry Cecil and was one of the favorites for the Oaks there," trainer Eddie Gregson said. "I got her last winter at Santa Anita but she got a minor shin injury." The Kentucky-bred daughter of Glint of Gold has won three of nine starts and earned $177,422.

So as the sun declines below Detroit (the lake a cool assurance of alternatives to hard dark high-rise miscellaneous) the colors of the end of light relax along the horizontal edge of this blue place with burnt sienna rose and oranges that soften into regular domestic tragedies of night without a lover's willing face to stop the desperation of the chase for daytime stars that glint and blur and mix and lift like mica sprinkling on a concrete hierogylph of altered space where by himself a young

THE day before the deer season opener earlier this month, Arl Farris is scaling a 45-degree slope heading up a 6,250-foot high ridge in the San Gabriel Mountains.

I was beginning to think we'd never get around to making the CD that Nathaniel Anthony Ayers has been talking about for years. Last summer, on a trip to San Francisco, where Mr. Ayers was honored for his spirit by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, we came up with the perfect name for it: "Putting on Ayers."

Now, today, watching How tirelessly V upon V arrows the season's logic, Do I know my own story? At least, they know When the hour comes for the great wind-beat.
