News Around The World
Bush a sporting president
WASHINGTON — Hail to the sports fan-in-chief.
The number of boxers, baseball players, NBA hoopsters and the like who have visited the White House since President Bush took office in January is already into the hundreds. And that’s not counting the T-ball set playing Sunday on the South Lawn.
On one day alone, Bush had 47 sports legends in the house — baseball Hall of Famers whom he’d invited to lunch.
The numbers went up even higher Friday, when Bush honored the New York Yankees in the Rose Garden for their 2000 World Series victory.
Colleges offer more than degree
SWARTHMORE, Pa. (AP) — Graduate from college these days and chances are you’ll get more than a diploma.
Hundreds of schools now offer lifetime e-mail addresses for alums.
Get an “alum.swarthmore.edu”
address if you’ve graduated from Swarthmore College. The University of Pennsylvania offers “alumni.upenn.edu,” while California’s Harvey Mudd College gives out “alum-ni.hmc.edu” addresses to graduates.
Schools will be stuffing campus mailboxes in the coming weeks informing graduating seniors of this increasingly popular perk.
Florida OKs j election changes
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)
— Six months after Florida plunged the presidential race into chaos, lawmakers approved a sweeping election overhaul Friday that will banish the hanging chads and butterfly ballots that made the state a laughingstock.
The $32 million measure now goes to Gov. Jeb Bush, who is expected to sign it as early as next week.
“We took advantage of the scrutiny the state got and rather than trying to relive the past, we’ve been focusing on making sure 2002 looks a lot different,” Bush said.
The Mid-Texas Symphony will perform music from “West Side Story,” “Porgy and Bess,” “My Fair Lady,” “Fancy Free,” and “Phantom of the Opera” at 4 p.m. Sunday at the New Braunfels Civic Center. There also will be a wine tasting beginning at 3 p.m. and during intermission with Dry Comal Creek Winery and Texas Hills Vineyard. General admission tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and college students and $5 for kindergarten through high school. For information, call 629-0336.
