THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- SUNDAY, MAY 9, 1993—11 Lewis wins unanimous decision over Tucker to hold on to his crown LAS VEGAS (AP) — Lennox Lewis, recognized by some as the first British heavyweight champion of this century, got his first championship victory in his first defense Saturday night. Lewis, who was awarded the title by the World Boxing Council after Riddick Bowe failed to fight him, scored a unanimous 12-round decision over the 33-year-old Tony Tucker. Although the victory pleased the British fans among the 15,000 in the Thomas and Mack Center, it probably didn't convince many that Lewis is a true champion. He knocked down Tucker in the third and ninth rounds, but except for that and a burst of activity in the eighth round, the fight was marred by long periods of inaction that had many in the crowd booing. Judge Jerry Roth of Las Vegas scored it 117-111 for Lewis, Mickey Vann of Britain scored it 118-111, and Harry Gibbs of Britain had it 116-112. The AP favored Lewis 117-110. Tucker, a former IBF champion whose only previous loss was to Mike Tyson, went down 2:18 into the third round from a hard right hand, and Lewis stung Tucker with the right again at the bell. But then the action slowed until the eighth, when Tucker landed a short right to the head of the 27-year-old Lewis, then got off a four- or five-punch flurry that backed the champion up. Lewis fought back with five or six head shots that sent Tucker reeling across the ring to a neutral corner, and at the bell Lewis landed a hard right and Tucker wobbled to his corner. Lewis, sensing victory, roared out at the opening of the ninth and put Tucker down with a right just 12 seconds into the round. Tucker got right up and Lewis attacked for another 40 seconds. But in the final two minutes Tucker had Lewis in trouble, first with a series of punches to the head and a right to the body, then with a right hand to the head, and, with 15 seconds, left a hook and a right to the head. That, howver, was Tucker's last hurrah. Action slowed perceptively in the last three rounds but Lewis kept the edge. "I lost to a good fighter," said Tucker. "He was the better man tonight. I will be back." Lewis, who weighed 235 pounds, boosted his record to 23-0, but had to settle for his fourth win by decision. Tucker, 235, of Cleveland, now is 48-2. Viking Roundup Bearcats- Continued from Page 10 two-lap 800 meters, pace and tactic-wise, Olea placed third and medaled in a fast field in a personal record of 2:01.45. The anticipated renewal of the girls' 8-pound shotput rivalry between Ukiah's Coreen De Los Santos and Santa Rosa's Karin McCall failed to materialize, it being Prom Night for McCall. De Los Santos won at 42-2. better than her 41-6 Wednesday in Ukiah, but short of her recent UHS and Redwood Empire all-time best of 43- VA . Ukiah also gained third and another medal on the 34-714 toss from Chris De Los Santos. But Chris ran into trouble in the discus, damaging a discus and going unplaced. Jennifer Andress also was unplaced on the day. Ukiah's Sean Ussery was fourth in the varsity boys' 12-pound shot at 42-4, while Travis Wright was second at 43 feet in the junior varsity 10-pound event. No Ukiah boys placed in the discus. Charlotte Scott ran a non- medaling season's personal best of 1:03.5 in the 400M, then set a personal record in the 300-IH in 52.5. Scott also had the grit to run the 3200M in 14:10. Robert Rozelski set a PR by 17 seconds in a 10:35 two-mile. Mike Long set a PR of 4:41.8 in the mile. Both got sixth places. Miles Salinas had a personal record of 4:53 in the mile.

If he's old enough to crawl, it may be difficult to keep him in camera range. You may have to "immobilize" him in a high chair, playpen or bathtub. Or, get some shots of him asleep in bed....they could be really great. For different and cute facial expressions, put a drop of lemon juice or a pinch of sugar on his tongue. All kids love both of these tastes and will show it by making wonderful faces. Babies also enjoy playing ready when he pops out, giggling, from behind his blanket of from other covering. Be sure you're ready with plenty of our "factory-fresh" film. If you've been thinking about a new and better camera, we've got one that will exactly meet your needs. Let us show you.

Ukiah's biggest innings were a five-run third and seven runs in both the fifth and seventh innings. Willits 5 Upper Lake 3 The Willits Wolverines remained only one game back in the loss column for the North Central League after a 5-3 victory over the Upper Lake Cougars Friday in Lakeport. Willits is now 6-3 in the NCL I, just behind Cloverdalc and Kelseyville, each with only two losses. The Wolverines take on Cloverdale next Friday in Cloverdale in a game that will most likely determine the league champion. Willits pitchers Brian Murphy and Andy Sawyers combined to limit Upper Lake (8-9) to only five hits. Willits had a 4-0 lead and led 5-1 going into the bottom of the sixth when the Cougars made it interesting. A run in the sixth cut the deficit to 5-2, and Upper Lake scored once more in the seventh and had runners at first and third with only one out. But Sawyers beared down, got one hitter to fly out to center ;md struck out the final batter to pick up the save. Continued from Page 10 victory. The Bearcats were led by catcher Erin Giese, who went 3-for-3 with a nin scored and an RBI. Second baseman Richelle Lawson also hit well, going 1 -for-2 with a walk and two RBIs. In the nightcap, the Bearcats again started the scoring with three runs in the bottom of the second inning. Once again the Cards rallied, picking up one in the third and two in the fourth to tie the score at 3-3. The Bearcats were able to rally back in the bottom of the fourth and scored two more, closing out the scoring at 5-3. The Todd sisters led the Bearcats at the plate in the nightcap. Stacy went 2-for-2 with a run scored and Rachel went 1-for-2 with a run and two RBIs. "Our defense played extremely well and we were able to get hits when we needed them," Moore said. The Bearcats have a tough road ahead this week, with a Monday game at Upper Lake, a Tuesday game at Willits and a Friday league doubleheader at Point Arena. Bench depth is something the 'Cats never had, and with center- fielder Jessica Buickerood out with the mumps and measles, Moore said this week will be particularly tough. UKIAH FORD UNCOLN-MUCUOT MOTOR MEMOS by Bob Krause DON'T DESTROY THE CONVERTER Essentially there are three things that can destroy the catalytic converter. First and foremost in past years was the use of leaded gas. The lead clogs the inside, making it ineffective. The second catalyst killer is engine trouble, usually malfunctions due to improper maintenance Incomplete burning of fuel, often a result of spark plug or impoper carburetion problems will cause the converter to heat up to a point where the inside can actually melt. The third reason for replacing a converter is normal "wear- and-tear," including rust or damage to the unit itself. Sometimes a converter will become damaged because of broken brackets supporting the exhaust system. Preventative vehicle care pays off! If you read our column, we appreciate your comments!
