Et cetera Fisher lifts Towson past UNC Wilmington in CAAs Third baseman Zach Fisher homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs to lead fourth-seeded Towson to a 13-11 victory over top-seeded UNC Wilmington on Thursday in the CAA baseball tournament in Harrisonburg, Va. The Tigers (27-28) will face either William & Mary or James Madison in the winners' bracket at noon today, while the Seahawks (37-20) will play an elimination game at 3:30 p.m. today. Fisher hit a grand slam in the sixth that put Towson ahead to stay and then added a two-run shot in the eighth that proved to be the difference in the game.

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- At 79, Al Knorr could fill his days in the recliner with televised junk food, watching Oprah Winfrey and Judge Judy and yelling "big money, big money!" when Wheel of Fortune comes on. But twice every weekday, Knorr dons his black snowmobile mittens and insulated shirt, and heads to the busiest intersections in town, where he stands as a solitary street-corner sentry against the war in Iraq. Knorr's large cardboard "Stop the war" placard on a wooden broomstick draws honks and thumbs-up signals from some rush-hour drivers and abuse from others, such as the guy in the white pickup truck who rolled down his window and made an obscene gesture.

BLAIR, Wis. -- Even in the fringe world of alternative fuels, vegetable oil has mostly remained on the margins, the domain of a few do-it-yourselfers who have rigged their diesels to run on old fryer fat, making the rounds of local burger joints to fill their tanks. But the veggie power movement is about to stick one greasy toe into the mainstream, as a company in this western Wisconsin town prepares to open what its owners believe is the first recycling and filling station for waste vegetable oil in the Midwest, and one of just a couple in the nation.

It would be tempting to think of new Los Angeles Clippers coach Dennis Johnson as the human punch line to the joke about the guy who wanted to coach in the worst way and is getting his wish. But Johnson, who inherited the Clippers' mess this week from the fired Alvin Gentry, says things aren't as bad as people think. "Over the last two years, we've changed the thinking of the culture outside," Johnson said. "It may be going backward right now. A year ago, when you had a team such as we had with so much praise and promise, you heard that we should be going to the playoffs.

Roy Vucinich and Doug Johnson turned in two good rounds apiece at last year's State Farm Senior Classic. But it's the one bad round that has made them want to get back to Hayfields Country Club so badly. And, after becoming two of the three Greater Baltimore Classic qualifiers yesterday at Hillendale Country Club, they'll get their respective shots at the course. Doug LaCrosse of Tampa, Fla., was the third qualifier. In last year's Senior PGA Tour tournament, Vucinich shot 78 in the first round before playing the weekend at 7 under par to finish with a 1-under 215, tied for 22nd.

When Doug LaCrosse qualified for the Greater Baltimore Classic on Monday, Senior PGA and tournament officials had nothing to say about the guy. No records, no background, no nothing. He was the tour's mystery man. There's a good reason for that. The Classic is LaCrosse's first tournament as a professional. "There will be some butterflies," said LaCrosse, 50, of Tampa, Fla. Ahn's OT goal knocked Italians out of World Cup "But this is what I am here for." LaCrosse, who has played amateur tournaments sporadically throughout his life, decided a couple of years ago to try something new. "I figured, why not [go pro]
