LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T ommy Chong finally has a successful solo career, years after he split with his old partner Cheech Marin. Now he's working the comedy-club circuit, doing what he loves: smoking dope, playing music, and making people laugh.

The fashion program at the University of Texas debuted in 1985 and consists of three areas of study: design, retail merchandising, and textile conservation. Today, it produces well over 200 majors, with a dozen or so graduating seniors specifically in design.

Every week, about 700 girls get expert instruction in softball at Club K, a 20,000-square-foot training facility in Hermitage, Tenn. The girls range from local training league players to top-flight high-school seniors looking for college scholarships.

Plus, Tucson's best softball coach, another Land of Oz musical, and more.
