Tony Taylor's lovingly sculpted essay on Voyager's odyssey to Neptune and beyond was, by itself, worth the price of admission to the Aug. 6 Times. Scientists might take note; information poetically expressed--even technical information--is a potent, effective force. TROY J. HOLTER Helena, Mont.

A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of killing his 19-year-old live-in girlfriend, who was shot and fell from a window in their Altadena home, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said Sunday. Tony Taylor was being held on $50,000 bail, according to the sheriff's inmate database. Sheriff's officials went to the 2400 block of Lincoln Avenue about 5:30 p.m. Saturday and took the woman to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Denise Fuchs.

Thank you, Tony Taylor, for your piece on the remarkable journey of Voyager (Op-Ed Page, Aug. 6). As I read the Opinion Section, this was the only item that made me proud to be a member of the human race and a participant or supporter of human activities. All else in the entire section described or was based on hate and discontent, malfeasance and corruption, dishonesty and dishonor, war and unrest, terror and reprisal, the list goes on and on, a paean to man's venality. Meanwhile, 12 years on its way and at the threshold of the limits of our solar system, Voyager continues to perform and to prepare to continue its tremendous journey.

Philadelphia's leading rusher, Correll Buckhalter, and teammates Terrence Carroll and Darrel Crutchfield were suspended for today's game at Dallas after Carroll was arrested on marijuana charges Friday night, a source familiar with the players told the Associated Press on Saturday. Carroll faces drug charges after marijuana was discovered in a car in which he, Buckhalter and Crutchfield were riding, said a source with the Philadelphia Police Department.

Winning and losing are part of baseball. Losing 23 in a row is part of a legacy. In the summer of 1961, the Philadelphia Phillies lost 23 consecutive games to establish a modern record. It's something the participants don't like to be remembered for. But it's there, like a rut in the outfield or a pebble in the infield. Only a few teams in the history of professional baseball know the despair of going weeks without a victory or a handshake.

Alex Fernandez won't be with the Florida Marlins tonight. But he made his presence felt Monday night. Fernandez, who will be absent from Pro Player Stadium and instead taking part in a protest by Cuban-Americans over the Elian Gonzalez situation, pitched into the eighth inning in leading the Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies at Miami. "I didn't have great stuff, not overpowering, but I'll take this stuff every time," he said.

The Rev. Robert A. (Tony) Taylor, a Baptist minister known for his work with troubled youth in Oxnard, has died of cancer. He was 40. Taylor was the pastor of Pacificside Community Church in Oxnard and a longtime member of St. Paul's Baptist Church, where he had organized counseling, music and sports programs for teen-agers. "He felt that most minorities, in particular, had no male adult supervision," said his brother-in-law, Gary Windom.

Vanderbilt celebrated wildly, cheered on by sprinkling of gold-and-black-clad fans amid the sea of red. Georgia and its 92,000 backers trudged out of Sanford Stadium in stunned silence. The scoreboard went blank as soon as it was over, a feeble attempt to erase what everyone had just seen. A stunner between the hedges. Bryant Hahnfeldt kicked a 33-yard field goal with two seconds left Saturday to give Vanderbilt a 24-22 upset of No.

Dear Readers, This month we kick off Men's Health Month with Usha Lee McFarling's story on how to drag your man--whether he's your husband, father, brother, whatever--to the doctor. Not to talk about my father's people, but sometimes they can be so difficult when it comes to medical treatment. Their "that-lump-is-bound-to-disappear-on-its-own" approach is fine when it comes to cake batter, but not when it comes to health.

Galaxy midfielder Michael Stephens and defender Jorge Villafana of Chivas USA both made the final cut for the U-23 U.S. soccer squad Tuesday, two days before the team opens play in the CONCACAF Olympic Trials in Nashville. The U.S. is grouped in a four-team pool with Cuba, Canada and El Salvador. It must finish in the top two in group play to advance to next week's semifinals, where a berth in this summer's London Games will be at stake. Competition in the other four-team pool will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, beginning Friday.
