Bicycling along the Great Wall of China made Kevin Foster the big wheel he always wanted to be. But he soon realized an encore was necessary. Fame is fleeting and sponsors demand results. The Great Wall could be eclipsed only by great heights, Foster figured. So the pony-tailed, 34-year-old with the intrepid, child-like spirit of Forrest Gump spent the last year biking and hiking to the highest natural points of 49 states, an endeavor he calls "American Summits."

Kevin Foster overpowered the San Francisco Giants for six innings Wednesday, but one lazy fastball to Barry Bonds turned a pitching gem into a defeat. Bonds homered in the seventh inning to give the Giants a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs and Foster (2-2), who took a perfect game into the sixth and allowed only two hits in seven innings at San Francisco. Foster had arrived in San Francisco late Tuesday night after his father's funeral in Chicago.

Even though Port Hueneme's voters elected a new majority council that wants the RV park project killed, it's still with us. Why? Because Councilman Orvene Carpenter, City Manager Dick Velthoen and Redevelopment Manager Tom Figg are pulling every political and legal shenanigan to keep it alive. Meanwhile, we taxpayers just keep on paying. The only way to stop this nonsense is to have Councilman Carpenter and his city staff cronies take a tip from RVers: Hit the road.
