A doctor who performs abortions was charged Thursday with violating Kansas law on late-term procedures, a surprise move from a Democratic attorney general who recently unseated a prominent antiabortion Republican. Atty. Gen. Paul Morrison filed 19 misdemeanor counts alleging that Dr. George Tiller, one of the few U.S. physicians performing late-term abortions, got second opinions from a doctor who was not financially and legally independent from him.

Everybody's gotta have a team. Life's just not as fun without one. What better way to prove you have a pulse than to experience amped-up levels of frustration, surprise, anger and happiness. If you've got a team you really care about, it'll deliver all those feelings to you at one time or another. You tell yourself not to care, but you can't help it. You care, baby, you care. At midlife, I figured my days of adding new sports loyalties had ended.

An offensive outburst Thursday night between Tustin and Anaheim Western highs turned into a defensive standoff in the second half. Tustin proved to be slightly better in both, outscoring the host Pioneers in the first half and ending the game with a goal-line stand that preserved its 28-21 victory. The victory prevented the Tillers from starting 0-4 for the first time since 1994, when they finished 1-9.

Golden West League principals met Tuesday morning and voted 4-1 to uphold their original decision to not send Tustin High to the Southern Section Division VI football playoffs after the Tillers forfeited three league victories. Tustin, 7-3 on the field but 4-6 with the forfeits--and 0-4 in league--would have finished second in the league. League President George Green, principal at league-champion Westminster, could not be reached Tuesday afternoon.

A good little man can beat a good big man. That was the case Friday at Irvine, where an overflow crowd of 4,500 showed up to watch the host Vaqueros get in the chest of that physical brute, Tustin, and deliver a haymaker. It yielded a stunning 23-6 victory for second-seeded Irvine, not so much because Irvine won and advanced to the Southern Section Division VI championship game next week, but because of the score. Tustin. . . . six points?

7:30 TONIGHT IRVINE HIGH Irvine, seeded second, is trying to reach the Division VI final for the second consecutive year, while third-seeded Tustin is trying to get back to a championship game for the first time since 1997. Each team has the same type of attacking defense, but contrasting styles: Irvine's strength comes from its quickness, Tustin's from its physical play.

Frostee Rucker remembers Coach Myron Miller calling Tustin High football players on the carpet after the Tillers lost to Servite, 14-6, in the third week of the season. "Coach got on us pretty bad," Rucker recalled. "He told us we had Division I players and we had to make big plays, that nobody should beat us because of our defense and that our defense should step up." Nobody has beaten Tustin since.

Tustin didn't do anything tricky in beating Loara, 54-22, Friday in a Southern Section Division VI second-round playoff game. The Tillers (11-1) simply were bigger, stronger and faster than the Saxons, who tried a series of trick plays in an attempt to level the lopsided playing field. Loara was without leading rusher Billy Chavez, who suffered a broken collarbone in the Saxons' first-round victory over Cerritos.
