The pope entered the hall from a side door to the plat- form about a.m. Mem- bers of the crowd, some of whom had waited nearly two hours, stood and cheered as the pope raised his hands in greeting.

Online: For The Post-Standard's full coverage of Mother Marianne Cope, see Harvard expanding female role in science By Justin Pope The Associated Press Boston Harvard President LattTcncc Summers committed his university to spending million over the next decade to improve the climate for female scientists. Summers said he would implement recommendations by two committees he appointed in February, at the height of the outcry over his remarks at an ac- ademic conference that ques- tioned female aptitude for top- level math and science. The recommendations in- clude: Better advising for stu- dents. Money for developing a more diverse faculty. insUlKllllg dcnts in the sciences on gender bias before they are given teach- ing assignments. Mentoring, child care and late-night transport. "Universities like Harvard were designed a long time ago, in many respects, by men and for Summers said Monday. "To fully succeed on is- sues we're going to have to ad- dress issues of culture." "I guess the question is, 'Is there really going to be some meat to this or is it all window- said Mary Waters, chairwoman of Harvard's socio- logy department and an outspo- ken critic of Summers.

The U.S. Supreme Court Monday struck down New York's law banning shipments directly from vineyards to out- of-state customers. Twenty-three other states with similar laws will have to change them, too, the court ruled in a 5-4 decision. The decision was universally toasted by New York's vine- yards. There are about ol them. "I came home at lunch, opened up my e-mail and read the news. I screamed so loud ray dogs ran off the said Rosemary Barletta. owner of Long Point Winery in Aurora. Cayuga County. "This is won- derful news." Here's why it's good news for smaller wineries: Unlike bigger vineyards, they don't have dis- tributors for their products. They rely on tourists and local busi- ness.

In the Cayuga County village of Moravia, just before noon on a beautiful spring day, a hundred professional bicycle racers were speeding along one end of Main 1 Street. A chicVen under way at the other end. And for about 30 chaotic minutes, a butcher-bound bull had the run of the village. Before he was brought down by a 12-gauge shotgun slug, the bull had rammed two sheriffs deputy cars and taken a half- dozen shots from a deputy's pis- tol and rifle. The bull had gotten loose about half a mile from the vil- lage as it was being unloaded from a truck by its owner, Don- ald H. Knapp, of LaFayette. and an assistant, at Owasco Meat Co. Inc., on Oak Hill Road. Knapp pursued the bull, which headed down the hill, toward Moravia's Main Street. Moravia police officers al- ready had their hands full direct- ing traffic to allow racers from the second annual Owasco Stage Race free clearance through tne village. So when the bull made an appearance in the Modem Market's parking lot, off Main street, Cayuga County sheriffs deputies were called. So were Moravia firefighters, to help clear traffic. The gray, one-ton bull ran I through yards and crossed Main Sum moments after the last pact of bicycle racers passed through, said Mike McCartan, chief race referee, who wns driv- ine behind the last racers. was at a full McCartan said Monday.
