I went to my files and pulled out my copy of the 1937 Third Annual Compton Invitational Track and Field Meet and there it was, just as I remembered. . . . Pole Vault Assistant--Pete Rozelle. When a vaulter knocked the bar off, Rozelle put it back up. VINCE REEL Claremont As a former sportswriter with the Seattle Times, I am familiar with the selective memory difficulty that plagues the profession. I refer to your writers who have canonized Pete Rozelle as the patron saint of the NFL. Is this the same Pete Rozelle who did everything in his power to deny recognition to that "other" league, the AFL?

ARLINGTON, Wash. - The Stillaguamish River and the Hazel Slide have been rivals for decades. The river eats away at the clay and sand hillside to the north of the snaking river. Weakened by the erosion, the hill's foot lacks the strength to fight the pull of gravity. Rain and logging add to the river's offense. In this deep-seated recess, landslides are inevitable. They send sediment surging into the river, deforming it for years until the cycle repeats. DOCUMENTS: Warnings about landslides in Snohomish County This ongoing battle exploded Saturday in a catastrophic geological event as a wall of mud, trees and rocks slammed into the river below, blocking the flow.

Horns honked, windows got cranked down in irritation. Eventually, people started yelling at the small, scared figure up on the railing. "Jump, bitch, jump!" someone shouted. "Get it over with!" yelled another. A few people down below tried to figure out how they could make a quick banner that would say, "JUMP."
