Democratic Rep. Harold E. Ford Jr. filed the federal paperwork Wednesday to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Majority Leader Bill Frist. The five-term congressman from Memphis is the second Democrat to enter the 2006 race. Frist has said he does not plan to seek a third term. "I'm excited," Ford said in a telephone interview from Washington. "I'm ready to go." He said his top issues would be energy reform, national security and education.

Jesse Owens, like all black athletes of his era, was born too early to cash in on the millions, even the thousands, that runners such as Carl Lewis, Edwin Moses and Michael Johnson can make today. After Owens won his four gold medals in Berlin in 1936, the best he could do when he returned home was to race for a few bucks against horses in 100-yard sprints as a sideshow at carnivals. Even that was a sham, Owens revealed later. The races were rigged.

Chantek, a giant ball of orange fur, puts a fist to his chin--sign language for orange. "Give me the cup, Chantek. Then I'll give you an orange," trainer Lyn Miles signs back, motioning to the plastic juice cup the 450-pound orangutan has nabbed from her. He repeats the sign for the orange, again without success, then turns away. "That's the 'No way, lady,' response," said Carol Flammer of Zoo Atlanta. Chantek is the latest, possibly most fascinating addition to the zoo's primate group.

After scouring the woods and swamps around Tri-State Crematory for a month, state officials now believe there are no more bodies on the 16-acre grounds and are focusing on identifying as many of the 339 corpses as possible, a Georgia Emergency Management Agency spokesman said Thursday.

The Soviet Union's most celebrated art museum in international circles is the one that houses its foreign collections. Long lines form almost daily at the entrance of the Hermitage's palatial structure in Leningrad. When the Soviets loan French Impressionist works from the Hermitage's collection--as they did last year in an exhibition that traveled to Los Angeles--the event brings front page headlines and record attendance.

As the fall term began Monday, Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson spent the morning as a finalist for the presidency of Wayne State University and something of a lame duck on her campus. By midafternoon, Wayne State's Board of Governors had chosen a New Jersey educator to head the Detroit university, and Wilson was pledging to stay put. "There's a sense of personal relief, in a way," Wilson said minutes after learning she had been passed over. "I've had . . .

This scene from the presidential campaign may look familiar: --Eight cheerleaders on the stage punctuate the candidate's applause lines with brisk shakes of their red, white and blue pompons. --Bales of hay have been strategically arranged to give the sterile civic center in a small Ohio town a down-home look for the cameras.
