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.

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.

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.

"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.

When Zachary Berge was diagnosed with autism shortly after his second birthday, he couldn't speak a word. He often threw tantrums because he couldn't express himself. His parents turned to "applied behavioral analysis," widely known as ABA therapy and recognized by the medical community as one of the most effective autism treatments for children. But ABA therapy doesn't come cheap, and it has cost the Berge family of Crestview, Fla., nearly $56,000 — a hefty bill they've had to pay out of pocket because the treatment isn't covered by the family's health plan, a program for active and retired military families known as Tricare.
