Margaret Groos, a former University of Virginia All-American who all but gave up competitive running a couple years ago because of medical problems, sprinted to victory Sunday in the U.S. Women's Olympic Marathon Trial in the best time run by an American woman in 2 1/2 years. With five miles left in the Pittsburgh Marathon, Groos, from Nashville, pulled away from Nancy Ditz to win in 2:29:50. Ditz, of Woodside, Calif., came along 24 seconds later.

The recent opening of writer-director Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" is a high point in a low age. Already slobbered over at Cannes and genuflected before by the New York press, it is, perhaps more than anything else, a continuation of Tarantino themes thus far missed and another startling aesthetic victory for a small, undeclared American film movement.

Who would take a road trip when gasoline is hovering near $4 a gallon? Well, you might, especially if you're taking the family. Sometimes it's cheaper to drive. "Driving makes sense if you have three people traveling, heavy baggage or fragile sporting equipment," said George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.com , an airfare deals blog. Baggage fees, which put almost $3.4 billion into airlines' coffers last year, can cost as much as $35 a bag (Allegiant, paid at the airport)

At the corner of Loma Avenue and 4th Street, the Dark Knight keeps watch over the sleeping town below. Perched atop the firehouse, the Batman figurine - his gaze steady, his pose vigilant - looms as a symbol of the busy nights in the Belmont Heights neighborhood on Long Beach's east side that Fire Station 4 serves. The Belmont Heights station is one of several in Long Beach that have adopted icons that reflect the area they serve, following a New York City tradition that dates to the time of horse-drawn fire wagons.

Isiah's Knicks are a little too ready to rumble So much for the good old days when the biggest problem was the basketball. Saturday night's brawl in Madison Square Garden was too reminiscent of the 2004 Auburn Hills riot for comfort. This involved only Knicks and Nuggets players, but Commissioner David Stern may hit the $10-million mark in fines and suspensions anyway. If it takes two to rumble, it's not surprising one was the Knicks.

Moose Stubing, Angel third base coach, is as big as his name implies. At 6-feet 3-inches and 250 pounds, Stubing doesn't so much flash signs as he does billboards. Sunday, in the first inning of the Angels' game against the Oakland A's in Anaheim Stadium, Stubing held up his arms and screamed with enough power to stop a truck. Brian Downing was barreling toward Stubing after a one-out double by Reggie Jackson.

In 10-gallon hats, chamois chaps, snakeskin boots and belt buckles the size of T-bone steaks, they rolled in like tumbleweeds for the grub and the show at Wild Bill's Wild West Dinner Extravaganza in Buena Park. The Saturday night hoedown drew more than 600 duded-out guests at $50 per, raising an estimated $20,000 for the local chapter of the March of Dimes.

In Lancaster, where the average temperature in July is a scorching 98 degrees, desert wildlife must adapt to the environment. Survival for many means lying low during the hot daytime hours under a bush, in a nest or burrow that will provide adequate protection. Since water is scarce, animals obtain moisture from the plants or animals they eat. Here's a look at some of the animals in and around the Antelope Valley that make their home in the western Mojave Desert.
