Leroy, ranked No. 2 in the world, handled light winds and dodged heavy boat traffic to defeat Genny Tulloch of San Francisco, who also was runnerup last year. Fort Lauderdale's Anna Tunnicliffe, Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year, finished third. Three-time Santa Maria winner and 2008 Olympian Sally Barkow finished fourth.

With a marathon racing session coming to a close Friday in the Santa Maria Cup, Suzy Leech, the bowman in Betsy Alison's crew, had to opt out of the day's eighth and final flight of match races. It wasn't injury or fatigue that forced Leech onto the shore early and race volunteer Jennifer Tyson into Alison's crew to fill the open slot. It was a fundraising commitment. That sort of departure was a first for this popular Annapolis women's match race, but it was just one of many signs that the winds on the Severn River were carrying an Olympic buzz.

SANTA MARIA, Calif. - Prosecutors handling the child molestation charges against Michael Jackson will finally reveal the details of their case before a jury today, culminating investigations into the pop singer that began more than a decade ago. With the selection of jurors and alternates completed surprisingly quickly, opening statements will begin today in Santa Maria, 170 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. The trial is expected to last for months and to detail Jackson's sex life and his interaction with at least one of the children he has entertained during sleep- overs at Neverland Ranch, his compound in Santa Barbara County.

In 1931, when the Knights of Columbus erected its Santa Maria Council headquarters in Canton, it was such a big deal that the mayor laid the cornerstone and the Catholic archbishop dedicated the edifice after a big parade. And why not? In those days, Santa Maria, at Highland Avenue and Fleet Street in Canton, was the fraternal order's biggest council in Maryland. Seven decades later, Santa Maria has shrunk from 1,400 members to perhaps 50 who are active, according to Darryl Jurkiewicz, a past grand knight.

SANTA MARIA, Calif. - First came the cuff-linked hand waving out the tinted window. Then the umbrella. Then Michael Jackson himself, elegantly attired for an ignoble occasion: his arraignment yesterday on felony child molestation charges, to which he pleaded not guilty. And, soon, there was a scolding - by the judge, who admonished Jackson for being 21 minutes late for his first court appearance. "Mr. Jackson, you have started out on the wrong foot here," said Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville.

Sweden's Marie Bjorling, the top-ranked women's sailor in the world, handily won the Boat US Santa Maria Cup yesterday after sailing a near-perfect regatta in the waters off Annapolis last week. Bjorling won all but two of her 18 races in the round-robin tournament that started Wednesday, then she and her crew swept the semifinals and finals on a day when racing almost didn't start because of a lack of wind. "We made some mistakes the first day, then we didn't make them anymore," Bjorling said at dockside after yesterday's racing.
