Katie Beer lapsed deep into thought. The question: What had fundamentally changed in the year since the shootings at her school, Columbine? "I used to think I had my 'kid protective bubble' around me," said the cheerleader and member of the National Honor Society. "Now, I feel like that bubble's gone." As if, in addition to 13 murders, the crime at Columbine also encompassed the theft of youth itself.

As a parent and former high school teacher, Sara Beeby knew sending a sympathy card to Columbine High School in the aftermath of the recent bloodshed wasn't enough. "I knew immediate and long-term counseling would probably be required and someone would ultimately have to pay for it," Beeby said. She talked to people who wanted to help but didn't know where to go or what to do.

The knx1070.com Web site, which displays unusual personalized license plates, acquired an international flavor this week when the radio station received an e-mail from Inowroclaw, Poland. The sender, Jacek Czarnecki, dispatched a list of Polish vanity plates with such translations as NAKED, LOVER and VODKA. The one that caught my eye was P1 SKACZ, which, he said, roughly means HEY YOU! JUMP! Sounds like pedestrians have to be on their toes in Poland, too.

Changes all around. That should be the unofficial slogan of the Vigilantes, who begin their second season of minor league baseball in Mission Viejo on Saturday night at Saddleback College against the Chico Heat, the defending Western Baseball League champion. The Vigilantes, who won Western League titles in 1995 and '96 while in Long Beach, finished 39-51 last season. So Manager Buck Rodgers, who became a minority owner in the off-season, and the front office, got busy.

Question: Littleton Coin Co. is offering a first-year, all-mint set of Susan B. Anthony dollars (three coins) for $5. I was thinking of purchasing a few sets as keepsake gifts for my children (and possible appreciation over the years). Does this sound like a good plan, or could you suggest something else to serve this purpose (in a similar price range)?--S.J. Answer: You can hardly go wrong spending $5 for coins that have a face value of $3.
