George Horton and a few Cal State Fullerton teammates did not know what awaited when they ventured from their hotel on their first night here in 1975. The Titans were in town for their first appearance in the College World Series, and the boys from Southern California hungered for whatever night life the city offered. As they huddled on the street, they asked a passerby for directions to a bus stop and the nearest entertainment.

Within the mall, however, the Von Maur department store where Robert Hawkins, 19, fired an AK-47 on Wednesday remained closed. A memorial had been assembled at its inside entrance. Wreaths sat on tripods just outside the doors. Hawkins' family released a statement through the Rev.

Joyce Stevens knows all there is to know about the origins of the crime and despair that afflict America's inner cities. Joblessness. Welfare dependency. Absent fathers. Overcrowded public housing. Latchkey kids. Racism. Peer pressure. Delinquency. Gangs. Drugs. Guns. She and her three kids have lived them all. Despite her best intentions, this 40-ish African-American woman lived for almost a decade as a welfare mother in the squalid public housing projects of South Omaha.

City Councilman Walt Calinger was picked Wednesday as Omaha's 45th mayor, succeeding Bernie Simon, who died last week of cancer. Council members selected the 48-year-old lawyer in a 4-3 vote over Council President Fred Conley, who had contended he would not be chosen because he is black. Calinger will serve the remaining 14 months of a four-year term that originally was Mike Boyle's. Simon was chosen by the council to replace Boyle in February, 1987, after Boyle was recalled from office.

When his daughter was a little more than a year old, it became apparent that she was just not gaining weight, Bradley Kass said. She had nursed until about 9 months old and had done fine. But as soon as she began eating solid foods, she ceased to thrive. Sue Goldstein of Westchester County, N.Y., the mother of three, went to give blood and was found to be severely anemic, meaning she had a very low red blood cell count. Despite treatment, she remained anemic; her body wasn't absorbing the iron.

Cancer is by nature unfair, capriciously stalking children and grandparents, corporate presidents and clerks, super athletes and shut-ins. Still, there is a sense that this most feared of afflictions is an act of fate, rather than anyone's fault. The same cannot be said, however, for the access to cancer treatment. Too often, patients are left to their own devices in the search for the best possible medical care, cancer experts and patient advocates say.
