John Scherer (Glenelg and Michigan) got ninth in the TAC cross country title run in New York; his time of 31:02 was 40 seconds behind winner Bob Kempainen's 30:22. The latter's effort ended a long streak of victories by Pat Porter and automatically qualifies him for the U.S. World Championship squad.On the women's side, Lynn Jennings, the defending world champ, assured herself a return to the big meet in March in Antwerp, Belgium, by running 19:07 -- 26 seconds better than anyone else. A couple of area runners, Gina Procaccio and Cassie O'Neill, finished fourth and seventh, respectively, in the 8-K.* That was an OK start the North Central Marathon, conducted by the Baltimore Road Runners, got on its maiden voyage the other day. A hundred runners showing up to hack out a marathon at about the time most are easing off for a couple of months is a tribute to their resolve.

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. -- Faulty software and a balky computer on a simulator in New Mexico delayed the launch of two satellites from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore yesterday. Officials weren't sure when they would know enough about the problems to reschedule. "At the very best, we would launch Thursday morning. But that's optimistic," said Col. Samuel McCraw, mission director for the U.S. Air Force's Space and Missile Systems Center. "There's a lot of analysis that's going on."

Give me a laundry list," Gioachino Rossini supposedly said, "and I will set it to music." You can be sure he would have a lot of fun with such an assignment. After all, a composer who could get amazing musical and comical mileage out of such words as "cra cra" and "tac tac" would hardly be fazed by "easy on the starch" or "extra bleach." Rossini fans never tire of hearing the clever way he used "cra cra" and "tac tac" - or, for that matter, "ding ding" and "boom boom" - in the Act 1 finale of his first full-scale comic masterpiece, L'italiana in Algeri.
