Recognition for a life's work can be like a flash flood, never given a second thought until it cascades in torrents and catches one unaware. Jerry White, 58, never anticipated accolades at black-tie dinners simply for being a successful baseball coach, and he certainly never sought gratitude for being a Division I basketball official. Yet in the past year this nearly lifelong resident of Oxnard and Camarillo has been inducted into no less than three halls of fame.

The President has made human rights a major topic during the summit talks. It is amazing to me he would condemn the Russians, when this country supports with billions of dollars a year, Israel, a country that is killing and imprisoning the Arabs. These Arabs are not the terrorists who have been produced by injustice. These are the men, women and children who were living in that land when the Jews took it. They have no voice in the government. They have no human rights. How many have they killed with America's blessings?
