NEW YORK -- The Herbalife saga is getting more bizarre. Activist investor Bill Ackman is pointing to a top Herbalife distributor's suicide as an omen for the Los Angeles company's fortunes. The nutritional products maker, however, said Ackman is merely trying to exploit a family tragedy out of desperation.  In a letter to his investors Tuesday, the New York hedge fund manager noted that a Colorado distributor took his own life recently. The letter also cited other departures of distributors from the nutritional products company amid rule changes for how they operate.

At the age of 7, Brendan Doran told his parents he was going to be in the Olympic Games one day. At 11, he presented them with an ultimatum--leave home in California for the ski slopes of Colorado or he'd find some other parents. At 18, Doran, with his parents watching, is fulfilling his own prophecy as a member of the U.S. ski jumping team at Nagano. To support their son, Peter and Cindy Doran hold down six jobs between them at home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

San Diego State signed basketball players Chris Fox and Jim Baskin to national letters of intent Wednesday. Fox, a point guard, scored 48 points in his first two games last season for Kapaun-Mount Carmel High School in Wichita, Kan., before being suspended for the year because a booster paid for his tuition at the private Catholic school. As a junior, the 6-foot 2-inch Fox averaged 17.9 points and 5.8 assists and was named to the all-Wichita second-team. Baskin, a 6-8 forward, averaged 28.

The skier who collapsed in a tangled heap at the feet of the great Billy Kidd had not, to that point, so much as wobbled on his skis all day. Someone pushed me. Honest. "I only have one rule," Kidd reminded a group of skiers Monday on an unnerving stretch of terrain known as Heavenly Daze. "I don't want you to run into anybody . . . especially me." Welcome to ski school. For 20 years now, snow or shine, at 1 p.m.

Canadian Myriam Bedard made history Friday in the women's 15-kilometer biathlon, becoming the first Olympic champion from North America. Biathlon combines cross-country skiing and target shooting. Bedard, who finished third in the 1992 Olympics, missed only two targets on the shooting range and skied the tough course in 52 minutes 6.6 seconds. Anne Briand of France was second. She skied 46.7 seconds slower than Bedard and had three misses.

When I was a teenager, I cut out a magazine photo showing a cowgirl riding a horse through thigh-high snow. The image was so exotic and romantic that I pasted it to my mirror as a reminder of what I wanted from life. So when I had the chance to take Indigo, my horse-mad 12-year-old daughter, to join friends at Vista Verde Ranch outside Steamboat Springs in midwinter, I had an ulterior motive: I was going to fulfill my cowgirl fantasy. The plan was to spend four nights at Vista Verde, a summer-winter guest ranch, and three at Steamboat Springs ski resort.

A diversified Japanese recreational firm is bidding on the Steamboat Springs ski area, and resort officials appear to be nearing a sale of the 26-year-old facility, the Rocky Mountain News reported today. Steamboat Ski Co., owned by a group of eight that includes Denver industrialist Charles Gates, confirmed its talks with Kamori Kanko, a diversified recreational firm headquartered in Sapporo City, Japan. Owners of the popular resort 150 miles northwest of Denver stopped short of confirming a deal, but it was the first time they have verified the name of a suitor, the newspaper said.
