A8: WEDNESDAY. MAY 2, 2001 THE SAUNA JOURNAL • SPACE SHUTTLE Weather forces a California landing By The Associated Press EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — Shooed from rainy Florida, space shuttle Endeavour and its seven- man crew landed in California on Tuesday after installing a billion-dollar robot arm for the international space station. Endeavour touched down at 9:10 a.m. "Welcome back after a tremendously successful mission taking the arm to space," Mission Control said as soon as the shuttle rolled to a stop. . "It's great to be back," commander Kent Rominger replied. Mission Control waved En­ deavour off two chances to return to Cape Canaveral, Fla., because of rain, wind and clouds, and decided to take advantage of clear skies and light wind at the backup landing strip at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California. The weather in Florida was not expected to improve throughout the week. It was a disappointment for Rominger and his crew; their families were waiting for them at Cape Canaveral. This was the second time in three months that a space shuttle was diverted to Edwards because of bad weather in Florida. Atlantis ended up there in February, also following a space station construction mission. TNIKI TAYLOR Supermodel critical after car wreck Taylor suffers possible severe liver damage after car hits pole By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Supermodel Niki Taylor, whose lithe good looks have landed her on countless magazine covers since she was a teen-ager, was in critical condition with internal injuries Tuesday after an auto accident. The 26-year-old Taylor was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed into a utDity pole early Sunday, said publicist Lou Taylor, who is not related to the model. Taylor, who was wearing a seat belt, was not thrown from the car and initially appeared to be unhurt, her publicist said. TAYLOR "Everyone felt she was OK, and then she had severe stomach pains," Lou Taylor said. At a news conference, Lou Taylor said Niki Taylor suffered severe liver • damage. "That seems to be the primary worry," she said. She said the model was awake but was heavily sedated and that no surgery was planned. Driver James Renegar, 27, told police he looked down to answer his cell phone and lost control of the 1993 Nissan Maxima. Police said they did' not suspect drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident. Renegar and passenger John Lack, 30, were treated at a hospital and released. Lou Taylor de­ scribed them as old friends of the model. Niki Taylor was in Atlanta to visit friends for the weekend and planned to return home to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Monday to begin acting lessons, her publicist said. The model's parents, Barbara and Ken Taylor, and an older sister were with her at Grady Memorial Hospital. Taylor is the mother of twin 6- year-old boys, Jake and Hunter. She landed on the cover of Seventeen magazine wheri she was barely 14. iRemember Mother with Flowers!
