Alaskans pull into town on bike trip to Vermont
Mark and Jeanne Larsen biked through New Braunfels Thursday, en route to a bicycle tour of the United States and eventually Europe.
The couple were married last October. Mark, 26, said, “It’s sort of our honeymoon trip.”
The trip began in Cedar Qty, Utah and thus far has stretched through Arizona, New Mexico, and now Texas.
After a ride down River Road and a night of camping, the pair will head near Houston to visit the National Forest Center. Then, on to New Orleans and before trekking along the Eastern coast. The final U S destination is Vermont. From there, they will fly to
Europe and bike through the continent.
The Larsen’s are from Anchorage, Alaska where they are salmon fishermen. They also worked in the oil fields there, which is how they were able to save money for the trip.
“If you don’t have any house payments or car payments, it is very do-able,” said Jeannie, 26, of the trip.
Of Texas Jeanne said, “I knew it was big, but I didn’t realize it was so diverse.”
They hope to be back in Alaska by the summer of 1988, which is the start of the salmon fishing season.
Conner takes possession
PERTH, Australia (AP) - Under bright skies and in the stiff breeze that Dennis Conner likes, the America’s Cup officially returned to U.S. possession today in a ceremony at its home since 1983 Behind the Royal Perth Yacht Club and in front of the Swan River, at least 5,000 people watched as the gleaming silver trophy was presented to Commodore Fred Frye of the San Diego Yacht Club.
Stars & Stripes, the club’s boat, climaxed a four-race sweep of Kookaburra III, the Australian defender, on Wednesday, and Conner
climaxed his three-year mission to regain the cup he lost in 1983 — the first U.S. skipper to do so in the event’s 132 years.
“This is a dream come true,” the 44-year-old Conner said toward the end of the 55-minute ceremony. “It’s a super day.”
The band played “Stars & Stripes Forever” as the strong breeze, the kind in which Stars & Stripes was fastest, blew. Moored just behind the award platform was Kookaburra III, Conner’s victim. The city skyline shone underneath the bright afternoon sun in the background
SA topples Sonics for No. 7
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN ANTONIO - For the first time since 1981, the San Antonio Spurs have won seven in a row, putting them one game shy of a club record.
The Spurs defeated the Seattle Supersonics, 117-111, Thursday night.
That put the team close to record eight-game streaks set in 1970 and again in the 1978-79 season. They play the Rockets Feb. IO at Houston after the All-Star break.
"We made a few mistakes in the fourth and they pushed us a little out of our game,” Spurs Coach Bob Weiss said.
“We had some turnovers and missed shots (the team hit just 21 percent of its tries in the fourth), but then we steadied and held on.”
The Spurs held a 70-51 halftime lead.
San Antonio led by as many as 24 points in the third quarter when the Sonics stormed back to within two points, 111-109, with 2:25 left in the game.
Forward Mike Mitchell grabbed an Alvin Robertson shot blocked by Alton Lister and fired it back in from seven feet to put the Spurs back up by four and the Sonics never got closer
Mitchell, rumored to be on the trading block, had not seen action in the last five games
Spurs guard Jon Sundvold scored a career-high 25 points, including two long sailing three-pointers. He fueled the Spurs engine with IO assists, in
