HERSHEY PA 10/11/02 -- The possible sale of the Hershey Company
is not the only bittersweet controversy in this company town this
year. Hershey High School senior Angie Saterstad, who spent her
summer winning the USATF Junior Olympics 3000 meters in Omaha (above)
and vacationing in Ocean City with her parents, is being barred
from the school's cross country team because she missed a few pre-season
practices in August. Story

race. After winning in convincing fashion at last week's Shore Coaches
meet, Lindsay experienced upper leg pains during her warmdown and,
when they persisted, went in for a medical checkup. A preliminary
diagnosis of a stress fracture in her femur was made, but she will
be examined again this week. (from Ed Grant and Paul Schwartz)
