On The Sidelines

Deja vu....AP Chicago staff photographer Beth Keiser earned the nickname "Florence Nightingale" recently after performing first aid on Houston freelance photographer Steve Byer last month while covering a Cubs game. A foul ball struck Byer in the temple area while he was sitting in the first base box. According to Keiser, "All of a sudden there was a gush of blood." As she looked for something to put on it a trainer ran over and gave her a towel. She held it against his wound until the bleeding (which was quite substantial) stopped.

It took several minutes for the paramedics to get down the stairs. Byer was given cab fare to go to the hospital. When he got to the emergency room it was packed and there was no doctor on duty. He returned to Wrigley to pick up his gear. The next day he showed up at Comiskey Park for a White Sox game and said, "I felt a little dizzy when I got up this morning but my head doesn't hurt so I came out here."

Keiser herself was hit by a ball on the arm last year at Comiskey Park during pregame warmups. She had a bad bruise that lasted for at least a month. Fortunately it was gone before her wedding last September!

More than two years after Sacramento Bee photographer John Trotter was beaten and left for dead, Terauchi Kenkiuchi Golston has been convicted of the crime. Trotter was photographing children on swings on a spring day when he was beaten into unconsciousness by Golston, an alleged gang leader, and a group of teenagers. Since the attack Trotter had experienced numbness on the left side of his body and has had memory problems. He has not been able to return to work.

Baby Boom...Rod Mar of the Seattle Times is a proud papa. Evyn Camille Mar was born on Wednesday, January 13, 1999 at 2:56 a.m. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 5 oz. and was 19" tall. Cuteness can be viewed at

And finally, June 9th....Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Bert. Happy Birthday to you. Be careful in Albania and Kosovo.
