Leaders of the Greek Orthodox Church have ruled out a spiritual pilgrimage by Pope John Paul II to Athens until the Roman Catholic pontiff apologizes and does penance for centuries of enmity between Orthodox and Catholics. "The pope can come to Greece as a head of state but not as a religious leader," Metropolitan Kallinikos, spokesman for the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church, said Monday after a meeting of a council of church leaders.

The Greek Orthodox Church said Friday that it will take the Socialist government to court over a law that gives its huge landholdings to farm cooperatives and puts laymen in charge of church administration. Leaders of the state church said they will not comply with the law and might seek union with the international body of Eastern Orthodoxy, which is not subject to Greek law.

Fist fights erupted Wednesday between police and supporters of the Greek Orthodox Church as bishops held a service protesting government plans that include taking over church lands. Thousands of church supporters shouting "Hands off our church!" and "Shame, shame!" chased police, who apparently tried to unplug a public address system relaying the service outside the Church of St. Panteleimon. Police said there were no injuries or arrests.

The last thing hikers on the Cathedral Rock trail expected on a waning November afternoon was to witness a wedding. But they were, in their sweaty T-shirts and muddy boots and carrying walking sticks. Between them and the towering, steeple-like red rock formations they had come to see knelt a bride and groom in striped serapes. Standing over them was a Native American shaman in flowing robes with a leopard scalp on his head.

There's no such thing any more as traditional summer vacation for many teachers. The demands of year-round schools, of learning new curricula, of becoming comfortable with new ways of teaching, all mean summer "classroom time" for thousands across California and the nation. Teachers in San Diego County this summer have worked to improve themselves in various academic subjects. Among the special institutes for them are ones in writing and in multicultural history.
