College students have lost access to more than $6.7 billion a year in education loans after private lenders fled the market, spurring such schools as Pennsylvania State and Northeastern universities to turn to the Education Department's Direct Loan Program. Dozens of lenders, led by College Loan Corp. and CIT Group Inc., have stopped making federally guaranteed loans because the U.S. cut subsidies and investors hurt by the sub-prime-mortgage crisis shunned bonds backed by student loans.

Trabuco Hills' Matt Rechner walked in wearing shorts and a denim jacket. He sat down at the banquet table and surveyed the room from his slouch. "Are you pretty comfortable in situations like this?" Rechner was asked, a reference to the collection of football players gathered at a media luncheon kicking off championship week for the Southern Section football playoffs. "Yeah, I am," Rechner answered. "I'm a little nervous with Costa Mesa over there, though."

A storm plastered the Northeast with heavy, wet snow Monday, stranding drivers and airline passengers, knocking out power and closing schools from Pennsylvania to New Hampshire. Up to 18 inches of snow were forecast in places. "I guess Punxsutawney Phil wasn't wrong," John Sullivan said as he buttoned up his overcoat against the swirling snow in Springfield, Mass. A week earlier, the Pennsylvania groundhog saw his shadow, which legend says means six more weeks of winter.

Bob Finnigan of the Seattle Times wrote: "Deion Sanders is a two-sport marvel, drafted by the Yankees in baseball and Atlanta in the NFL, but he's also a natural no-brainer. "He came into the Yankee camp this spring and asked for uniform No. 3 (Babe Ruth's), then No. 4 (Lou Gehrig's), then No. 5 (Joe DiMaggio's). He got No. 44 (Reggie Jackson) and changed that for No. 18." Said Jackson when he got a look at Sanders with all his jewelry: "He had on his Mr. T starter set." Add Sanders: Asked whether he would rather hit a home run in baseball or return a punt for a touchdown in football, he opted for the punt return.
