Shayne Blakey believed he was about to die. He could feel his stomach throbbing and he could taste the blood gushing from his mouth. Blakey had seen it endless times in the movies: people shot and killed, their lives snuffed out with one senseless pull of a trigger. Except this wasn't make-believe. "I couldn't even explain the things that went through my mind," Blakey said. "I pictured my mom and my baby sister. I was really scared."

There's no telling what Cal State Northridge, or some of its new-found followers, might do next. Except, maybe, beat USC. Then lay claim to Southern California. "After we beat USC, we'll definitely own L.A., right?" said Nick Garcia, a Northridge shotputter. First things first for the Matadors, who roll into the Sports Arena tonight for a 7:30 game against USC.

In her last official appearance as Cal State Northridge's third president, Blenda J. Wilson oversaw a $361,000 lease payment Thursday from biomedical entrepreneur Alfred E. Mann at a groundbreaking ceremony for a planned $80-million on-campus biotech park. The development, expected to generate research opportunities for students and faculty and annual lease payments worth $800,000 to the university, is one of the largest private-public partnerships in the San Fernando Valley.

Big Sky. Big West. Big Deal. We don't mean that facetiously. For once, Cal State Northridge athletic officials aren't trying to jam a square peg into a round hole. Northridge's signed, sealed and delivered move from the Big Sky Conference to the Big West, starting in 2001-02, is the most sensible decision about athletics the school could have made. It could have happened four years ago, when Cal Poly San Luis Obispo joined the Big West, beating Northridge to the punch.

A university car checked out by a secretary to Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson was used in the holdup of a pharmacy during the school's winter break, Los Angeles police and campus officials said Monday. Police arrested the secretary's boyfriend, David Lawrence Burnette, shortly after a Chatsworth Sav-On drugstore was robbed early Dec. 28. During a court hearing last week, Burnette's bail was set at $130,000.

With distractions everywhere, Bob Hiegert briefly took the bait. The Cal State Northridge athletic director sat in his office late Thursday night awaiting election results on a crucial funding measure that would decide the future makeup of his program. Coaches, administrators and athletes milled nervously around his desk. It was crunch time. At 10 p.m., a caller reached Hiegert and gave him some numbingly bad news. The athletics referendum had again been shot down.

Lifting off into the Big Sky Conference is becoming a New Year's tradition for Cal State Northridge, and the Matadors are prepared to do so more resolutely than ever, beginning with the opener tonight at Northern Arizona. Their first two seasons in the nine-team conference were a mix of surprising victories against established teams and frustrating inconsistency that resulted in a seventh-place finish last season and a sixth-place finish in 1996-97.

Hildo Hernandez has been named the new director of facilities plant management at Cal State Northridge. Hernandez, formerly general manager of facilities operations for Los Angeles County, will assume his duties on the 350-acre campus Monday. CSUN officials said Hernandez's leadership in recovery efforts for the county following the Northridge earthquake will be helpful to the university in its own post-earthquake operations.
