Re "A Dometown Girl," Aug. 28: The article about Olympian Joanna Hayes showed a large picture of her father, Ted Hayes, above a much smaller picture of Joanna. The article went on to describe the impact of Joanna's accomplishments on Dome Village people. The article told how her mother was abandoned with four children and supported them as a substitute teacher. That was all you wrote about her mother; everything else was about Ted Hayes. Why would you celebrate a father and picture his pride when it was her mother that held the family together?

Stafford, 62, becomes the second candidate to vie for the post occupied by Larner, one of the targets of a failed recall campaign last year after she voted to ban AIDS care and Planned Parenthood presentations from teacher-training workshops.

A substitute teacher and youth soccer coach was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing child pornography, authorities said. Federal agents and local law enforcement officials arrested George Harcourt Bull, 58, at his Lake Forest condo about 2 p.m. after finding numerous photos of prepubescent boys on his computer, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. An Arizona father in June tipped authorities that his 13-year-old son had been exchanging sexually explicit instant messages and text messages and having Web-cam sessions with someone who used the screen name "joeycal," which was traced to Bull.
