He had nothing to apologize for -- not one thing, not after the best day and night of his life -- but sorrys have been such a part of Jeret "Speedy" Peterson's life that old habits are hard to break. "These are tears of joy," Peterson said. "I haven't cried those in 15 years." Peterson had been funny, insightful and brutally honest after going for, and landing, his signature trick, the electrifying Hurricane, in winning the silver medal Thursday night in the men's aerials at Cypress Mountain.

How about letting freestyler Dylan Ferguson craft and create his boundary-pushing aerial tricks and let others be responsible for naming them? His ideas form in the air and land on the snow. In what little spare time he had, he once worked on creating clothing with a handy sewing machine. But in his world, it's all about the trick, and in this case the trick is almost always an homage to the late Jeret "Speedy" Peterson, who electrified the sport when he landed the "Hurricane" four years ago at the Vancouver Olympics, winning a silver medal.

Life philosophy and Jeret "Speedy" Peterson finally merged, rather than collided, and produced a memorable result at the Olympics. All or nothing. Sitting in fifth place after one jump made his decision incredibly simple in the final of the men's aerials. The American didn't come all the way to Vancouver after living through what he called "enough turmoil and drama for three lifetimes" to leave the Hurricane on the shelf. And so, at 6:48 on Thursday night, he went down the ramp with speed, and almost everyone in the viewing area at Cypress Mountain knew what would happen.

Life is all about the Hurricane for Jeret "Speedy" Peterson. Doing one. And living in one. First, there is his highly acclaimed signature Hurricane, an aerial trick featuring three flips and five twists. The men's aerials qualifications will be Monday night at Cypress Mountain. "I plan on doing the Hurricane," he said at the pre-Olympics news conference here. "I want to be able to do that trick. I want to be prepared to throw it. . . . We won't know until game day." Peterson will be joined in qualifying by American teammates Ryan St. Onge, Matt DePeters and Scott Bahrke.

It wasn't so much that about 85 high school kids were in a synagogue for a Passover Seder; it was that there was hardly a Jew in sight. But that was the idea for this gathering, to teach Catholic high school students about the holiday that commemorates Moses' leading the Jews out of Egypt and slavery. "Your faith wouldn't have existed if we weren't rescued from Egypt," Rabbi Isaac Jeret told the students who gathered at Congregation Ner Tamid in Rancho Palos Verdes last week.

Olivia Porter shouted in excitement Thursday as she watched her miniature hot-air balloon float upward. "Go! Go! Go!" the 10-year-old yelled. Olivia and 89 of her classmates in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades at King Elementary made 14 colorful, three-foot balloons as part of a monthlong science lesson on the forces of flight. The students participated in a number of experiments during their science classes that led to the final one, which was witnessed by the entire school.

Steve Fried, crew chief for rookie Robby McGehee, was hospitalized Sunday in critical condition with head and chest injuries after being hit by another car in the pits during the Indianapolis 500. Eliseo Salazar's spin brought out a yellow caution flag on the ninth lap and when Jimmy Kite and Jeret Schroeder collided in the pits, Kite's car hit Fried. "His vital signs are stable, and he can follow commands," said Dr.

Orangewood Academy Coach Eric Thorson had only one reaction after his team held on and posted a 73-72 upset of second-seeded Los Angeles Pilgrim Thursday. "Wow, we need to work on our free throws," Thorson said after watching his team miss seven of 10 foul shots in the second half. "But we're just happy to represent the county in the Final Four." The Final Four?

Funny how it works at the Olympics. Snow was being imported to the weather-challenged Cypress Mountain just a few days ago, the lingering reminder of an often problematic venue. Then came Tuesday. It started snowing during the women's ski cross event and started coming down harder and harder throughout the day and night. Perfect for a Currier & Ives holiday print. Not quite so ideal for the aerial freestylers. The women's final was held Wednesday night and the men are scheduled to take center stage Thursday.

A gamblin' man in a gambler's sport, Jeret Peterson could hardly contain his gold-medal smile after flying down the mountain. Never mind that he finished seventh. To him, that wasn't what Thursday night's Olympic aerials competition was all about. "I came here to do the Hurricane," he said, "and I did the Hurricane." Problem was, he blew it.
