While her next victim patiently stands on Court 1, Jenny Gonzalez sits and chats with a reporter, not knowing that she is holding up her opponent and team competition. The first set for Gonzalez, a junior at Valencia High, ended with a familiar result: 6-0, in less than 15 minutes over a bewildered La Quinta player. In 30 sets, Gonzalez's closest brush with defeat has been 6-2. In one set last week against Magnolia's No. 1 player, Gonzalez did not drop a point.

The number of civilians killed by the Colombian armed forces has soared, activist groups allege, with many of the abuses committed by army units that had been vetted by the State Department. There were 329 so-called extrajudicial killings by the Colombian military and police last year, a coalition of Colombian rights groups asserts in a report, a 48% increase from the 223 reported in 2006. The Colombian Commission of Jurists, a Bogota-based civil society group that is responsible for verifying many of the deaths, said last week that a significant number of killings of civilians by the armed forces had been reported so far in 2008 in five Colombian states, but provided no precise numbers.

Thanks in part to dramatically improved security in recent years, Colombia has vaulted into the major leagues of global crude producers. Ironically, that same success may be driving a surge in violent crime against oil workers flooding into areas formerly considered off-limits to outsiders. About 130 companies are now looking for oil in the Colombian countryside, compared with a number that could have been counted on "the fingers of both hands" a few years ago, Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera said this month.
