EUGENE, Ore. -- Rarely does Sanya Richards-Ross picture herself climbing atop the medal stand after winning the 400-meter gold medal at the Olympics. Instead, she visualizes the final steps she must take to get there, driven by memories of having victory slip from her grasp at Beijing in 2008 when she faded to third down the stretch while weakened by an ailment she believes was misdiagnosed. "Every time I think about going back to the Olympics, I think about finishing stronger and getting to the finish line first and that's been my motivation the past four years," she said.

LONDON -- Sanya Richards-Ross  has been driven the last four years by the memory of her fade to third place down the final stretch of the 400 meters at the Beijing Games. On Sunday she put her demons to rest by rallying in the final 100 meters to win gold, the first gold medal for the U.S. track and field team at the London Olympics. Richards-Ross passed several runners -- including Britain's Christine Ohuruogu, who had beaten her in Beijing -- to win in 49.55 seconds. Ohuruogu was second in a season-best 49.70 seconds, with DeeDee Trotter of Orlando, Fla., outleaning Amantle Montsho of Botswana for third, 49.72 seconds to 49.75.

The animals are restless in Richard Ross' "Museology" photographs. As occupants of natural history museums and taxidermy shops, the beasts are long dead, but life seems to twitch under their fur and feathers. It isn't physical life that's at issue, however, but the life of viewers' imaginations. Variously interpreted, Ross' color pictures can set off reactions ranging from indignation to glee.

Dean Florez (D-Shafter), to sponsor the bill.

The campaign consultant for City Councilman Richard Alarcon conceded Friday that he owes former Assemblyman Richard Katz an apology for drafting a campaign mailer that falsely linked Katz to intimidation of Latino voters. Also Friday, Alarcon agreed the mailer, funded by a political ally, was "wrong." But he again declined to take any responsibility for it.

Photographs can be made without good reason, without any ostensible subject and without much care or sensibility, but they can't be made without light. Light is the catalyst, the engine, the fuel of every photographic image. It can be present in artificial or natural form, but it must be present. It delivers the wake-up call to slumbering silver salts or, nowadays, to the dormant codes of digital "film."
