Jeff Stone has been a star on the Phillies' horizon for the last two years but the team, unwilling to rush the young man into the big leagues, waited for him to rise slowly. Stone, who appeared with the Phillies briefly in September 1983 and then hit .362 with 27 stolen bases in 51 games last season, will be the team's leadoff hitter and starting left fielder this year, said new manager John Felske.

If California State Assemblyman Andres Pico had gotten his way more than a century ago, the college football team that plays its home games in downtown Los Angeles would be known as the University of Southern Colorado Trojans. It was Pico who introduced an 1859 bill to create the state of Colorado out of the counties of California south of Big Sur. He complained that Southern Californians — what few of them there were — were overtaxed and underrepresented. The state Legislature actually bade Southern California goodbye but before Congress could give final approval, a bigger secession problem cropped up — the Civil War. Pico's bill was shelved, then forgotten.

NEW YORK -- The memories are painful for Tonya Harding, and somehow liberating. They fill a new book, "The Tonya Tapes," in which she speaks frankly, if a bit confusingly, about the Tonya and Nancy scandal. She writes about being abused as a child, contemplating suicide, having a gun placed to her head and being raped. She says she paid a price for not fitting the mold of American figure skaters. The book is a compilation of interviews with author Lynda D. Prouse conducted over eight years.

Six coaches have come and five have gone at UCLA since John Wooden retired in 1975 after his 10th NCAA championship in 12 years, but the pressure remains in Westwood. Even though Jim Harrick's current Bruins are Pacific 10 champions and were the first team to qualify for the NCAA tournament, he feels he can't rest easy. "There's been 30-0 teams here, so 23-2 teams don't mean much," Harrick said of the season. Wooden had four 30-0 season.

Jeff Stone of El Toro High School likes to spend most of his practice time working on defense and ball handling. But the Chargers have his offense to thank for helping them reach the Southern Section 4-A playoffs. Stone, a 6-foot 2-inch senior guard, scored 8 of his game-high 22 points in the fourth quarter, including two free throws with 21 seconds left, to give El Toro a 63-61 victory over Irvine Saturday that sent the Chargers to the playoffs as the South Coast League's third-place team.

His hot-button issues and defiant politics have made Jeff Stone a lightning rod for controversy on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. He has railed against the scourge of methamphetamine dealers, sexual predators and jailed felons -- all popular and carefully chosen political themes during his one-year tenure as a supervisor.

A new five-member commission will help Riverside County officials choose sites for off-road-vehicle parks and advise them on the contentious issue of all-terrain vehicles, the Board of Supervisors decided unanimously Tuesday. The unpaid commissioners will serve two-year terms and meet every other month, according to the county resolution. Off-roading, which has pitted some area property owners against local riders, affects many county residents, said Supervisor Jeff Stone.
