Writer Stephanie Diaz was stripped of her Eclipse Award for magazine writing about horse racing Tuesday after an arbitrator found apparent plagiarism in her entry. Arbitrator Frank McCulloch, while unable to determine whether Diaz or an editor was responsible, ruled that "passages, phrases and concepts" in two of the entries appeared to have been taken from other sources. Diaz won the magazine award for several articles published in The Backstretch, a Louisville-based magazine.

Bill Plaschke, Times sports columnist, was named winner Tuesday of the national Associated Press Sports Editors contest for column writing. Plaschke, who has been at The Times since 1987 and started writing a column in 1996, won in a category long dominated by Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press. Plaschke's first place for 1999, and a first place by Gary Shelton of the St. Petersburg Times in 1995, marked the only times since 1985 that Albom had not finished first.

June 12, 1992 | JAY HOVDEY, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Her Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, won't be forgetting the 1992 English Derby for quite a while. Not since those Americans hit the scene. A die-hard horse racing fan, the Queen rarely misses a "Darby" at historic Newmarket. But this one became something special when Dr Devious, owned by Sid and Jenny Craig of Del Mar, came galloping home in front in the 1 1/2-mile classic last week. Later, in her private box, the Queen was promised two free breeding privileges to Dr Devious.

Maybe it was the one-two punch of Vice President Dick Cheney and First Lady Laura Bush, extolling the virtues of the man who wants to be president -- again. Maybe it was the lack of punching back by Sen. John F. Kerry, the target of increasing attacks at the Republican National Convention and in a barrage of broadcast ads. Maybe it was the confluence of factors -- a good nominating convention for President Bush in New York and a bad month for his Democratic rival.
