LOMPOC - The shark that attacked a surfer at Surf Beach was a great white, estimated at 15 to 16 feet in length, according to the Santa Barbara County sheriff. Ralph S. Collier, a shark expert from the Shark Research Committee of Chatsworth, made the determination Wednesday after examining the body of Francisco Javier Solorio Jr. and the board he was using when the shark attacked, according to a statement from the sheriff's office. Collier said he estimated the size of the shark based on the distance between teeth marks on the board.

The year-old bog fire is out. A year after a 10,000-acre wildfire raged in the hills north of Lompoc and ignited the 83 acres of subterranean peat, a stubborn, smoky blaze that defied firefighting efforts for months has ceased. On Wednesday's one-year anniversary of the blaze, it was finally out--they think. "Even now, although we say it's out, the problem is, until this thing either doesn't surface or resurfaces for sure, nobody knows," said Darryl D.

For the second time in four games, Bob Dunivant, the Burroughs High football coach, has been accused of running up the score. And for the second straight time, Dunivant has given a simple reply--tough. After Friday night's 36-7 win over Lompoc in the Northwestern Conference quarterfinals, Dunivant dismissed charges by a Lompoc assistant coach that he showed no mercy, saying, in effect, that football is not a game for squeamish types.
