One by one, the sacred cows hit the ground, adroitly tipped over by the best-selling author Steve Berry in his 13th historical novel, "The Lincoln Myth. " Berry, 59, is a Florida-based former attorney and county commissioner turned author whose previous 12 books have sold more than 17 million copies in 51 countries.

ONE HUNDRED FIFTY years ago this summer, Brigham Young and 147 of his Mormon followers reached the Valley of the Great Salt Lake, the "New Zion" of what was to become the most successful of religions that originated in this country.It had been a long, arduous journey by foot and ox-drawn wagon, one that tested the faith and endurance of those fleeing the wrath and intolerance of mobs that had harassed Mormons from New York to Ohio to Missouri, finally martyring the founding prophet, Joseph Smith, at a jail in Carthage, Ill.Several hundred Mormons and Western frontier buffs are now in the process of retracing the trail blazed by the Mormon pioneers -- trudging and rumbling 1,297 miles across Iowa and Nebraska and Wyoming until they come, on July 24, to that western vista in Utah's Wasatch Range where Brigham Young proclaimed, "This is the place."

What went right In the fourth quarter all parts of Navy's team came together to make the plays that made the difference in the final score.

What went wrong While the offense rumbled to 25 first-half points, the defense struggled to stop Lewis from making the big passing play.

PROVO, Utah -- The invitation extended to Vice President Dick Cheney to be the commencement speaker at Brigham Young University has set off a rare, continuing protest at the Mormon university, one of the nation's most conservative. Some of the faculty and the 28,000 undergraduate and graduate students, who are overwhelmingly Republican, have expressed concern about the Bush administration's support for the war in Iraq and other policies, but most of the current protest has focused on Cheney's integrity, character and behavior.

The Rev. Jerry Falwell doesn't body surf anymore. In years past, Liberty University's famed founder and chancellor, a self-described "sports nut," occasionally allowed himself to be passed hand by hand up seating sections by delighted students during football and basketball games at the Lynchburg, Va., school. But with age creeping up on him, the 72-year-old has mellowed a bit. "I bruise easily and heal slowly, so I haven't done that recently," he said by phone last week. But Falwell still loves to win, which makes the events of this fall that much more painful.

Although it's not official yet, Maryland's football team appears to be on the verge of landing a talented sophomore transfer from the University of Notre Dame. According to sources within the Terps' program, Isaiah Gardner - a defensive back and kick returner for the Fighting Irish - was in College Park yesterday and exploring the possibility of enrolling at Maryland. The South Bend Tribune reported last week that Gardner, who is originally from Virginia Beach, Va., was absent from practice for two straight days, and that speculation was he had asked Notre Dame coach Tyrone Willingham to release him from his scholarship.

I WOULD LIKE to start off today's column by thanking all the intrepid men and women involved in the production and delivery of today's newspaper. If you can read this -- and I don't mean online through Sunspot.net -- hug your carrier. I would further like to thank the three guys who stopped in the middle of my street yesterday at noon to give my snow-stuck motor vehicle a push into a position out of the way of traffic and the city snowplow that will -- in my dreams -- make it down my street some day this month.

MOAB, Utah -- Edward Abbey's pickup truck runs as good as it looks, which is to say not good at all. And the mostly blue rig isn't much for comfort, either, unless you delight in finding the gummy, silvery residue from old duct tape stuck to your backside and hands and feeling the occasional poke from a wayward spring looking for an escape route. Still, the truck rumbles to life most days (except when it doesn't care to), providing a welcome reminder of its one-time owner, the prickly iconoclast of red rock country who died 13 years ago this week.

SALT LAKE CITY - It was Mark Twain who said of the empire that the Mormons built at the base of the Wasatch Mountains: "This was fairy-land to us, to all intents and purposes - a land of enchantment, and goblins, and awful mystery." Less than a week before the start of the Winter Olympics, as Utah opens its doors to the world, Twain's head-scratching over the cryptic nature of the Beehive State still holds. As he said, no outsider can truly comprehend Utah, a state whose history and modern life are cluttered with contradiction.
