AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. - The Atlantic Coast Conference has reached a critical moment in its 50-year history and now has a big decision to make. Do the nine members want to cling to one of the richest traditions in college athletics or embark on a bold - but perhaps risky - future? That decision - to expand or not to expand - certainly will be a major topic of discussion when the ACC begins its annual spring meetings today in Amelia Island. The ACC has held discussions with the University of Miami, a member of the Big East Conference, about becoming the league's 10th member.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Ted Watts, the disgraced British umpire who committed the egregious scoring error in the Venus Williams-Karolina Sprem match Thursday, won't work another match during Wimbledon. "I have now discussed the incident with the chair umpire concerned," said tournament referee Alan Mills yesterday, "and we have agreed it will be in the best interests of both parties if he takes no further part in the event." The umpires' office declined to comment. Watts, who has left a trail of controversy from Amelia Island, Fla., to Wimbledon, mistakenly gave Sprem a point she didn't earn in the final tiebreaker of Thursday's 7-6 (5)

Q: We take a trip around Florida every year, usually late in the fall. I'd like to include some of the state parks this year. Any ideas?A: Florida's 113 state parks offer good beaches, walking trails, historic and archaeological sites, springs, wild animal habitats, and venues for swimming, diving and boating. About half have campgrounds and eight have rental cabins.Fort Clinch State Park on Amelia Island is as far north as you can get in Florida, a place where visitors can look across Cumberland Sound and see Georgia.

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. -- Tatiana Golovin beat Nadia Petrova, 6-2, 6-1, yesterday for her first WTA Tour singles title at the Bausch & Lomb Championships at the Amelia Island Plantation. Golovin was appearing in her fourth championship match but had been runner-up in each of the three previous finals. This time, there was no denying the French teenager. Golovin answered nearly all of top-seeded Petrova's booming but erratic serves and most of her blistering ground strokes. But her best tactic was to wait until the defending champion made one of her 27 unforced errors.
