First Word
"When we’re not around, things can really go down and that’s when we need them to step up.”
- Josh Randall, asst. principal (Click here for story)

Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 23, 1968, North Korea seized the Navy intelligence ship USS Pueblo, charging its crew with being on a spying mission. (The crew was released 11 months later).

Ten years ago: A federal judge ordered Monica Lewinsky to submit to an interview sought by House prosecutors in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial. During his visit to Mexico, Pope John Paul II urged his flock in the Americas to make the region a “continent of life.”

Watercooler Talk
DALLAS (AP) — A high school girls basketball team that beat an opponent 100-0 has a case of blowout remorse.

The winning school now says it wants to do the right thing by seeking a forfeit and apologizing for the margin of victory.

“It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened,” the head of the school said Thursday on The Covenant School’s Web site.

He added that Covenant has made “a formal request to forfeit the game recognizing that a victory without honor is a great loss.”

Covenant, a private Christian school in Dallas, defeated Dallas Academy 100-0 last week. Covenant was up 59-0 at halftime.

A parent who attended the game told The Associated Press that Covenant continued to make 3-pointers — even in the fourth quarter.
