University Baptist Church has voted to leave the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship because that body opposes hiring of non-celibate gays and lesbians and funding of pro-gay causes. This is not the first time the Austin church has left a larger Baptist group. It was previously ousted by Southern Baptist city and state organizations after installing a gay deacon, but retains affiliation with the American Baptist Churches.

Green Bay receiver Robert Ferguson, who continues his recuperation from a clothesline hit Dec. 19 that temporarily paralyzed his legs and earned Jacksonville's Donovin Darius a $75,000 fine, is hopeful of returning for the playoffs. He said Thursday he was still suffering headaches and lingering weakness on one side of his body after the hit by Darius. But there's a chance the fourth-year veteran could be back on the practice field as early as next week and possibly play in Green Bay's first-round game Jan. 8 or 9. "I think it's a realistic goal right now," Ferguson said.

Marine Cpl. Tahan K. Jones' problems with the military began Oct. 26, when he dropped an application for conscientious objector status on his commanding officer's desk. Jones' application, which was filed on moral and ethical grounds three years after he signed up for a six-year stint in the Marine Corps Reserves and two months after Iraq invaded Kuwait, was preliminarily declared "insincere" by an investigating officer.
