"I've always been a little bit taller than all the guys around here," said 18-year-old Canonchet Neves, his palms resting comfortably on the ceiling of the Elbert Country Store on this late August day. The 6-9 Neves, the only American Indian signed to play major college basketball this year, towers in the snack-food aisle. Surrounded by Zingers, Ho-Hos and Ding-Dongs, he settles instead for an orange juice from the cooler.

Robert Kearns, the inventor of intermittent windshield wipers, who won multimillion-dollar judgments against Ford and Chrysler for using his idea, has died. He was 77. Kearns died of cancer Feb. 9 at his home in suburban Baltimore, his family said. In 1967, Kearns received several patents for his design for wipers that paused between swipes, making them useful in light rain or mist. The invention allows the driver to set the interval at which the wiper sweeps the window.
