* A Northern Californian firefighter was killed and three more injured fighting
the Cedar fire in San Diego Wednesday afternoon. The 10 fires have consumed
more than 900 square miles of Southern California. The San Diego death toll
is now 20 people, and it is estimated that up to 300 homes in San Bernardino
County burned on Wednesday afternoon. More than 233,000 acres of San Diego County
have been consumed as well, needing around 3,330 firefighters day and night.
* Putnam Investments and a pair of its recently dismissed fund managers are
involved in a civil suit with federal and state securities regulators. The fund
managers, Justin M. Scott, former chief investment officer of Putnam’s International
Equities Group, and Omid Kamshad, former chief investment officer of its International
Core Equity Group, are being accused of fraud. The securities regulators are
suing the two for using “nonpublic information about their funds’ holdings
to profit personally through frequent trades,” according to the New York
Times. Putnam Investments denies the claims.
* A number of members of Colombia’s cabinet resigned due to a government defeat
in a referendum on political and economic changes. According to BBC News, the
ministers said they “wanted to give President Alvaro Uribe a free hand
by resigning.” The results of the referendum will not be announced until
later this week, but it is speculated that at least 11 of the 15 government
proposals failed to gain enough support. According to the BBC’s Hector Latorre,
President Uribe has formulated an “alternative package of measures”
in order to trim $700 million from the government’s budget.

Despite a spirited effort by the home side, Swarthmore men’s soccer fell to
Ursinus College 2-0 in a night match at Clothier Field. The field, still wet
enough to cause some unpredictable tripping, was shrouded in mist, making quite
an incredible scene as the two teams traded possessions at a relatively quick
pace for the first part of the game. Ursinus switched keepers due to injury
in the 22nd minute, and shortly after, a foul just outside the penalty box gave
Ursinus’s Chris Hood the opportunity to put a free kick past Nathan Shupe for
the first goal of the night.
The goal seemed to inspire Swarthmore, and the Garnet created a large number
of chances in the rest of the first half. Swat was unable to capitalize, and
the Bears carried the 1-0 lead into halftime. The second half saw Ursinus switch
to a very passive strategy. For the rest of the game, Swarthmore managed to
keep the ball mostly in the opponent’s zone yet failed to convert several chances,
mainly as a result of Ursinus’s defense that seemed to end chances before Swarthmore
had a decent shot to finish attacks.
Swarthmore experienced a minor scare in the 59th minute when Nick Graham ’06
went down hard just outside the Ursinus penalty box after a chance. Ursinus
immediately moved the ball back upfield, and Tom Hanlin scored on a breakaway
from an obviously distracted Swarthmore team. Graham was soon back on his feet,
but despite putting tremendous pressure on the Ursinus defense, the Garnet never
seemed to find the net. Steve St. Vincent ’07 saw some time in goal in the last
15 minutes of the game in place of Shupe, who recorded 4 saves on the day.
Overall, the Swarthmore effort seemed very inspired, yet it lacked the extra
spark that turns movement upfield into goals. One particular bright spot was
a special halftime ceremony honoring senior Brandon Moriarty’s final home game.
He was flanked by his teammates and one of Swarthmore borough’s youth teams
as he was presented with a jersey and his game warmups in a ceremony that served
as a reminder of just how personal the Division III athletics experience can
be for all involved.
The Garnet are 5-11-2 going into their last game, against Haverford on Saturday.
The Garnet rallied from two down to pull off the 3-2 victory over the Fords,
snapping a 14-match losing streak dating back to the 1995 season. The Garnet
won 27-30, 24-30, 30-20, 30-20, 15-8.
Senior Emma Benn recorded 20 kills and 20 digs in her career finale to lead
the Garnet charge. Emily Conlon ’06 matched her career-high with 50 assists
and Natalie Dunphy ’05 recorded 13 kills, three solo blocks, five assists and
four aces. The Garnet close the season at 14-18 overall and 5-5 in the Centennial.
Catherine Salussolia ’04 recorded nine saves in goal but the Garnet fell at
Haverford 1-0. The Garnet fall to 8-9 overall and 4-6 in the Centennial.
The Garnet return to action on Saturday when they host Vila Julie in the season
finale at 3:00 p.m.
The Garnet currently lead the Hood Trophy battle with Haverford 2-1 after victories
in Volleyball and Field Hockey. Three points will be up for grabs on Saturday
as men’s soccer travels to Haverford and the Cross Country teams face the Fords
at the Centennial Conference Championships in Allentown.
No Contests are scheduled.
