Jennifer Martinez fully expected to spend her college softball career battling for NCAA titles. But when the year at Arizona, Division I softball's latest dynasty, didn't turn out the way she planned, she adjusted her goals. Grade-point average replaced batting average as the statistic she most valued. Softball became something she played for fun. But a funny thing happened on Martinez's way to a degree: she wound up right back in the NCAA playoffs.

The butterflies in Jennifer Martinez's stomach had stopped their rioting and the South Pasadena High School senior was a portrait of composure and grace. And relief, big time. "Now there's nothing to worry about," Jennifer said after she was named Monday as one of seven members of the Royal Court for the 108th Rose Parade. She clutched her bouquet of roses and breathed in the scene of jubilant parents and friends outside the Tournament of Roses headquarters in Pasadena.

The Obama administration unveiled a government-wide strategy Tuesday to crack down on piracy and counterfeit goods, adding more than 50 FBI agents this year to tackle intellectual property abuses. With the ubiquity of the Internet, online piracy and the sale of counterfeit goods on the Web are growing rapidly across a range of industries, including entertainment, software and pharmaceutical markets. Vice President Joe Biden, who announced the new program, said that the problem costs Americans jobs and that counterfeit goods threaten lives.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that cities and states must abide by the 2nd Amendment, strengthening the rights of gun owners and opening courthouse doors nationwide for gun rights advocates to argue that restrictions on firearms are unconstitutional. In a 5-4 decision, the justices said the right to have a handgun for self-defense is "fundamental from an American perspective [and] applies equally to the federal government and the states." The high court overturned 19th century rulings that said the 2nd Amendment restricted only federal gun laws, not local or state measures.

Jennifer Martinez glared at the catcher's mitt, went into her windmill delivery and . . . pop! An instant later, ball struck mitt perfectly. Remember that word, for this was only warm-ups. A little over an hour and eight innings later, Martinez and Chula Vista High were 1-0 winners over Mt. Carmel in the quarterfinal round of the San Diego Section 3-A softball playoffs. Through the first 23 batters (7 2/3 innings), Martinez was indeed perfect.

After weeks of public protest over its financial support of an organization that backed a GOP gubernatorial candidate opposed to gay rights, Target Corp. now faces a new form of pressure: demands from institutional shareholders that it revamp its donation process to avoid the chance of additional backfires. The shareholder action follows the disclosure last month that Target had sent corporate funds to an organization backing the Minnesota gubernatorial candidate. Such donations are allowed under a recent Supreme Court decision that lets companies and unions contribute directly to independent election campaigns.

"Think fast." In the time it takes to say it, a good softball pitcher--man or woman--can make the best hitters alive look silly. Some top female professionals have proved it during barnstorming tours in the past 30 years: --Kathy Arendsen struck out Reggie Jackson. --Rosie Black struck out Willie Mays. --Joan Joyce struck out Ted Williams. The ball might be the size of a grapefruit, but can be as hard to hit as a pea.
