The proposal would save the U. S. Forest Service time and money, said Julie Molzahn, recreation officer with the Lake View Terrace-based Tujunga Ranger District.

Brian Stulberg first realized something was haywire when he tried to carry his mother's groceries last June and the plastic bags kept slipping out of his hands. The wiry 27-year-old chalked it up to stress and exhaustion from working long hours teaching novices to shoot at a Van Nuys firing range. Business at The Target Range had ballooned in the wake of last spring's riots, and Stulberg's workdays sometimes stretched from 7:30 a.m. to 11:45 p.m., six days a week.

If you have any lingering doubts about your status as a centered, harmonious, serene person of calm temperament and placid, contemplative mind, there's no better way to confirm it than to spend an hour or so blazing away with a shotgun. I'm not talking about pulling a Dirty Harry and cleaning out some vermin-infested saloon. No. That's strictly for slope-browed, mouth-breathing malcontents with no imagination, no coordination, no eye.

Yeo Kab Soon, an 18-year-old South Korean, won the first gold medal of the Games, and Yugoslavia's Aranka Binder won the bronze at the air rifle competition in Mollet Del Valles. Yeo, who took up Olympic-style shooting three years ago, said she hoped simply for a top-eight finish to reach the final. "I thought I'd need more international experience to get so far," she said. "I had no feeling of anything when I won. I was so overcome with joy."

Bosnian sharpshooter Mirjana Horvat could have won her country's first medal, but just taking part was enough. After four months of civil war, air raids and hunger, just being in the Olympics seemed like a miracle. Horvat, a Sarajevo student, found herself on the Olympic air rifle shooting range, competing in Barcelona's opening medal event Sunday. During the final round, she fired next to Yugoslav shooter Aranka Binder, who won the bronze medal.
