Jamian Barbour may sound jaded, but he insists he is not. Just determined. "I've got some bitter feelings," Barbour said. "But all in all, I'm not a bitter guy. The bottom line is, I'm on a mission. I'm going to let my playing do my talking for me and everyone is going to see." Perhaps Barbour, who rushed for 2,196 yards and 20 touchdowns in two seasons as a tailback at Crespi High, can afford a bit of boasting. Anything to help boost his confidence.

On a spring evening in this Mississippi town, Jim Walker dug into a plate of roast beef, macaroni and cheese, and green beans at the Palmer Home for Children and tried to swallow his frustration. The orphanage was hosting an awards dinner for 65 of its charges — some in high chairs, others in high school. The kids, who wore Easter dresses and secondhand ties, accepted prizes for spiritual growth and certificates for artistic excellence. A 22-year-old who arrived at Palmer Home at 8 months old and graduated from the University of Mississippi received a top honor.

The millionaire founder of the "Girls Gone Wild" video empire was charged Thursday with bribing a jail guard for a bottle of water and having prescription sleeping pills in his cell, authorities said. When he learned of the new charges, Joe Francis waived his right to a bond hearing for the contempt-of-court charge that had led to his being jailed. Francis cried as his mother blew him a kiss while he was led from a federal courtroom back to his cell.

It has been called Super Bowl week's most exclusive party, one where an invitation--next to a ticket to the game itself--is considered one of the grandest gestures a company can make to a valued customer and the ultimate perk to a productive employee.

Scott Barbour, president of independent home video supplier Real Entertainment, is pretty smug these days. While the big movie studios are trying to figure out why consumers aren't renting or buying as many feature films on video as they used to, Barbour has retailers salivating over his next release, a series of outtakes from television's "Jerry Springer" talk show that has already sold hundreds of thousands of copies through direct response since its early October debut.

The folks who are planning to turn Brown Field next May into "Air/Space America 88," San Diego's answer to the Paris Air Show, are now taking reservations to fly people halfway to Hawaii and back. The trip to nowhere will cost $985 per person, but it has certain perks: French champagne, caviar, smoked salmon, pastries and Mach 2 at 60,000 feet with a view of the curvature of the Earth. You'll be flying aboard the British-French supersonic Concorde, the world's fastest commercial airliner.

The new video, "Cops Too Hot for TV," makes "NYPD Blue" look like "Romper Room." Taking a page from motion pictures that sport previously unreleased footage when they hit the home video market, the 45-minute tape features R-rated material cut from the popular, long-running Fox cinema verite TV series, "Cops."

Brian Henninger withstood two early bogeys Monday and overtook Chris DiMarco to win the rain-delayed Southern Farm Bureau Classic at Madison, Miss. Henninger began the day tied with DiMarco for the lead and won by three strokes. He closed with a three-under-par 69 for a total of 14-under 202. He dropped two shots in the first four holes. But he didn't have another bogey after that and took the lead for good with birdies at Nos. 13 and 14. DiMarco shot a 72 for a 205 total.

They're cute and cuddly at a time when the top women in youth pop are going for trashy and trampy. They make bubbly music at a time when even most teen-targeted records favor an urban edge. They're English at a time when English acts are a rarity on the U.S. charts. The female trio Atomic Kitten has dominated the U.K. pop world this year. Its remake of the Bangles' "Eternal Flame" was the No.

For this special Presidents Day feature, The Times asked readers, "Have you ever shaken Bill Clinton's hand? Played golf with Gerald Ford? Traded quips with Harry Truman?" One hundred ninety-one people responded to say that they had--and much more. Writers described close encounters with 14 chief executives--one with Taft and every president from Coolidge to Clinton--in settings as varied as the Oval Office, the campaign trail, a hospital delivery room and a high school reunion.
