C. Milton Wright sophomore Molly Stryker was a member of last season's Class 4A state championship team and is the starting sweeper for the Mustangs, who are 7-2-1. Stryker is 5 feet 9, and coach Paul Austin said, "You can't miss her in the back. She shows very good judgment. She knows when to attack the ball and when she has to slide. For a sophomore, she has very good maturity." How did you develop a knack for knowing when to slide and when to attack on defense? I've been playing soccer all my life.

Irked at being led around the barn on a harness by his owner, Stryker tried to pull away. He stomped his feet in the dirt and lowered his head as if preparing to charge. Yet there was no real cause for alarm - Stryker is a docile animal with no hooves, claws or upper teeth. At worst, the 6-month-old alpaca could be guilty of possessing an occasional mischievous attitude. "Most alpacas aren't like this," said Renee Petersam as Stryker continued the game of tug-of-war. "Stryker is an exception.

"For a scent of the dog they gave me its grooming brush.

WASHINGTON -- In the latest sign of stress from growing violence in Iraq, the Pentagon said yesterday that it has extended the combat tour of 4,000 Army soldiers, the second time in as many months that an Army brigade has seen its year-long deployment lengthened. The 1st Brigade of the 1st Armored Division, which is assigned to Ramadi, the capital of volatile Anbar province, will remain in Iraq an additional 46 days, defense officials said. Originally scheduled to leave Iraq in January, the brigade will now return to its home base in Germany in late February.

FORT LEWIS, Wash. -- Iraqis called them "ghost riders." The Army's new Stryker brigades earned the nickname in Iraq this year because of their speed, unusual quietness in arrival and ability to survive insurgent attacks. Unlike Humvee drivers who often plow through bomb-infested convoy routes without stopping, soldiers driving eight-wheel armored combat vehicles known as Strykers boast that they engage their enemies when the enemies appear. But the lunchtime bombing Tuesday at a military mess tent in Mosul that killed 22, including brigade members, came as a stark reminder of how mortal the "ghost riders" always were.

WASHINGTON - Sometime next year, the Army is expected to begin bringing home the 1st Armored Division, a 20,000-soldier unit based in Germany that is laden with Abrams tanks, armored vehicles and self-propelled 155 mm howitzers - all designed to repel a Soviet threat that no longer exists. In its place, the Army will probably position troops in smaller bases, perhaps in Eastern European countries, with highly mobile Stryker light-armored vehicles. The plan is part of a broad troop shift that reflects a rethinking of military strategy.

The hill in the center of Aberdeen Proving Ground's Munson Test Area offers a bird's-eye view of an army in transformation: In the distance, an older M1 tank shares the test track with a new Stryker trackless armored vehicle, rattling over washboard-rough stretches and maneuvering through 9 miles of twisting roads. Since the Army announced its plan about three years ago to become lighter, faster and more lethal, APG's scientists, engineers and mathematicians, along with mechanics, technicians and other workers, have been working on designs to revamp the way the military fights and wins wars.
