And the 75-seat stadium in which he started the program has been renovated.But now, it seems that Nelson is creating history every year as the Nazareth Golden Flyers start their run for a third straight Division III national title.Nazareth first broke onto the national scene in Nelson's third year, when the Golden Flyers upset Salisbury State.

NAZARETH, Israel -- Pope John Paul II enveloped Jesus' boyhood hometown in a festive embrace yesterday, seeming to override months of Christian-Muslim hostility and a huge show of force by police. In a display of religious coexistence that could have gone dangerously awry, Pope John Paul led a Mass honoring the Virgin Mary inside a basilica steps from midday prayers by hundreds of Muslim men at an open-air mosque that has been the source of a bitter local dispute. Fears of possible violence prompted Israeli authorities to seal off streets from traffic and flood them with police and border guards three hours before the pope arrived, giving downtown Nazareth the early-morning feel of an armed camp.

The C.F. Martin & Co. factory is off the beaten path. It's in an out-of-the-way town in Pennsylvania named Nazareth, and it's not even on the main street. The products coming out of that factory, however, have taken center stage all over the world. Martin is one of the world's top makers of acoustic guitars, and no doubt you've seen some of the company's models in the hands of a famous person. Willie Nelson has a Martin. So do Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Vince Gill. The factory is open to the public for free tours, and it's such an interesting spot that Paul Simon, Stephen Stills and Leon Redbone have come to see where their instruments were made.

Defending the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse title proved a tad easier for Salisbury University than winning it last year. After blowing a six-goal halftime lead and finally prevailing on an overtime goal in the 2003 final against Middlebury, the Sea Gulls came out ablaze yesterday, never trailed Nazareth and scored a 13-9 victory at M&T Bank Stadium to capture the school's fifth national championship. By concluding the season with a 20-0 mark, Salisbury broke the school record for wins and produced its third undefeated national championship team.
