Ted Lingelbach in Parkville watches this page for summer temperatures in Alaska. He detects an unusually cool summer there. "Can you provide any figures?" he asks. Sure. Fairbanks sizzled on the Fourth of July (85 degrees, same as Baltimore). But it's been downhill since. Anchorage averaged almost 3 degrees below normal for June and July. Fairbanks is down 7 degrees for August. Gary Hufford, regional weather service scientist, blames a new cold cycle in the North Pacific. "We're begging for anything over 60 degrees," he said.

It was one of the most memorable recruiting trips Dick Davey has experienced at Santa Clara. In March 2001, he already had a letter of intent from Kyle Bailey but went on the road to get a firsthand update on the progress of the guard prospect. "I was in a restaurant, having breakfast the morning of his game," Davey said. "I look outside and see a moose. That was an interesting experience." The dean of West Coast Conference coaches, Davey is in his 13th season as head coach and 28th overall at Santa Clara, an hour south of San Francisco.

Compel borrowers to buy a second hazard insurance policy at inflated premium costs when they know those borrowers have valid insurance coverage on their houses.
