A New York sculptor at mid-career, Robert Murray is a former protege of David Smith and Barnett Newman, and he cut his artist's teeth wrestling with the problems posed by Cubism. In 1974 Murray witnessed a train wreck and became intrigued with the idea of curved and folded metal, an idea he translates into sophisticated reductivist sculpture with the cool austerity of art common to the lobbies of corporate headquarters.

For much of the latter years of his life, Robert Murray lived out of the back of his Ford station wagon. And when the former Los Angeles County firefighter died recently, there were no loved ones at his side or to claim his body. He was about to become a statistic, and end up at the cemetery in Boyle Heights where the cremated remains of thousands of unclaimed bodies are buried each year, when fate intervened.

Lamond Murray is so unassuming on the basketball court that if you didn't see him talk to a teammate, you might think he wasn't even breathing. Murray does his talking with his jump shot, which ranks among the smoothest in the NBA. Starting his fifth season, Murray has emerged as the go-to guy in the Clippers' new offense under Coach Chris Ford. In two exhibition games against the Lakers last weekend, Murray led all scorers with 37 points.

Treating skinned knees and stomachaches is part of the drill at any school nurse's office or school-based health center. But healthcare providers at these sites do much more than treat everyday aches and pains: They give checkups and vaccinations, make sure kids take their insulin shots and antidepressants on time, and teach them how to manage chronic conditions such as asthma. School-based health centers go beyond the services of a school nurse. They are clinics that provide primary care to students, and often mental health and dental care as well.
