It is a bucolic little town, nestled amid the foothills of eastern Alabama. There is one traffic light, one drugstore and one high school, which Tuesday sat empty, testament to the silent power of forces that roil beneath Wedowee's placid surface. "Parents are jumpy. The kids are jumpy," said Dale McKay, the superintendent. He ordered the school closed after the school board, in a raucous, jam-packed meeting, suspended the principal Monday night. "We have to look out for the safety of the kids."

Dozens of black students boycotted classes Monday to protest the reinstatement of a white principal who threatened to cancel the high school prom if blacks and whites dated each other. Joining the boycott was student ReVonda Bowen, who filed a civil rights lawsuit against Hulond Humphries for allegedly telling her she was "a mistake" because her father is white and her mother is black.

A high school principal who briefly chose to cancel his school's prom rather than allow interracial dating was removed from his post Monday, two days after the school was destroyed in a fire authorities suspect may have been deliberately set.

There isn't much about the 2000-01 season the UCLA Bruins want to remember. Who wouldn't welcome amnesia after winning only six of 29 games, going 0-15 in road and neutral-court games and watching foes rack up double-digit victories 20 times? But there was a lesson taught last season that senior center Malika Leatham doesn't want the Bruins to forget. "Because we lost so much last year, we don't want to lose this year," Leatham said. How competitive the Bruins can be remains to be seen.
