Marion Jones signs with WNBA's Shock

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Former sprinter Marion Jones signed with the WNBA's Tulsa Shock on Wednesday, hoping to launch a new career after losing five Olympic medals for using steroids and doing jail time for lying to federal prosecutors.

Jones was a star at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney but admitted two years ago that she had taken a designer steroid known as the "clear" and was stripped of her medals, including three golds. She also spent about six months in a Texas federal prison for lying about doping and her role in a check-fraud scam.

Horton, that must be satire

I had to respond to Gary Horton's column today ("It's what you don't see that matters most," March 3), in which he says that the fact that the major news media aren't reporting any "bad news" about Obama's presidency means that we're all enjoying the "benefits" of "hope and change."

Gary Horton: If not in intent, it’s racist in deed

I think back to a personal story told to me by a friend who works in the financial industry. Intrinsic to this story is that my financier friend is black and grew up in South Los Angeles. That makes his life experience much different than the majority of the Santa Clarita Valley.
