FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Alarmed at the seemingly high rate of brain cancer among children in St. Lucie County, Fla., a group of mothers who courted controversy with their calls for a major health study are starting to feel vindicated.Last summer, the mother of a child who died organized other families, raised concerns about the local water and soil and generally set the population on "pins and needles," in the words of the Port St. Lucie mayor.At first, the mothers' effort seemed to stall as community leaders tried to stave off panic over a highly questionable public health threat.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Fernando Tatis' ascent to stardom began on April 23, 1999, with two powerful swings in less than an hour's span. A promising third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals, Tatis hit two grand slams off Los Angeles pitcher Chan Ho Park in the third inning at Dodger Stadium, a feat no other major league player has ever accomplished. Tatis hit .298 with 34 home runs, 107 RBIs and 21 steals that season, earning himself a four-year, $15 million contract. But about 16 months after his crowning accomplishment in the big leagues, he was traded to the Montreal Expos, the first in a series of events that has gotten him to this point.
