Vanstory said board members should not represent one of the special interest groups because it created a conflict of interest. “Whether you are in the majority or minority, if it’s a conflict of interest then you should not have a voice,” he said. “It’s hard to remain impartial.” Vanstory also said he wanted to reduce the number of board members but hadn’t worked out all the details. “I think nine are too many,” he said.

(AP) — Brandi Chastain ripped off her jersey and sank to her knees in glee. Her exhausted teammates erupted in joy. - In    the stands at the More on the Rose Bowl, thou-big victory sands of young girls — Page 11A squealed in delight. Women’s soccer got the World Cup ending it always wanted Saturday, a dramatic victory by the United States over China on penalty kicks after 120 minutes of scoreless play, in a setting unlike anything seen before in womens sports in this country. The biggest crowd ever to see a women’s game in any sport — 90,185 — cheered their heroes on through 90 minutes of regulation play and two 15-minute overtimes before Chastain’s leftfooted kick found the right side of the net to give the United States a 5-4 victory for the championship. When it was over, glittering confetti shot out over the Field and America had a glittering set of new heroes. Young girls stood cheering them on, the paint on their red, white and blue faces running in the 90-degree heat. Fathers hugged daughters and mothers cried as the scene of jubilation unfolded on the field below. A soccer fantasy that didn’t seem possible three short weeks ago came to a frenzied crescendo that might have been much the way the team s youthful followers imagined as they played fantasy games in suburban parks and in their bedrooms. Girls screamed as the U.S. team arrived on a bus for the game and cned out the name of their favorites. It was quite a ride, for the group of ffesh-faced, talented and down-to-earth women carried the hopes of the United States and, quite possibly, the future of women’s sports into overtime after a scoreless game. Yes, the U.S. team was favored to be here, but few could have imagined the team would be greeted with such a frenzy. TIK? response has been quite a contrast to the U.S. victory in the very first women’s World Cup in China in 1991. At an earlier game, a quarterfinal between Norway and Sweden, Jamie Loney and Laura Adams grinned, sweating behind flags painted on their faces. “Girls rule! Boys drool! Soccer’s cool!” the 11-year-olds from Pleasanton, Calif., chanted. For at least one magical summer, indeed that’s true. They did it!
