Jaime Martinez closed out his high school career Saturday with one of his best personal performances in the 3,200 meters at the State track and field championships. Although his time of 9 minutes 6.94 seconds was impressive for the Orange senior, it earned him only a fifth-place finish. "It was tough. I had a couple of fast laps," Martinez said, "but that is all I had for today." Martinez began the race with the pack, but broke into the lead at the end of the second lap.

Some people work all of their life to gain success. For others, the fruits of their labor come much more quickly. Orange High senior Jaime Martinez definitely falls into the latter category. In February of his sophomore year, Martinez asked head track and field Coach Lanny Carter if he could come out for the Panthers' track team as a distance runner. Less than three months later, Martinez was a double winner at the Century League finals, taking honors in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races.

Leftist rebels abducted seven Colombian journalists Friday and demanded that the reporters' employers publish a guerrilla text, officials said. The kidnapping occurred just three days after a different rebel group seized a photographer from Reuters news agency elsewhere in the South American country. Journalists traditionally have been respected by Colombia's belligerents as neutral observers, but with this week's rash of abductions, many feared that status was in jeopardy.
