Here's a sister writing news:

http://www.celeb101.com/movies/tombraider2.html

Vicki is trying to break into writing, which she is just doing on the side for now. She also wrote the book "The ABC's of College Life." The book is very funny, by the way...it very much reflects Lafayette, where we went to school (she graduated a couple of years before I got there, though).

Hey Katie! When I clicked on your first link, there was a popup ad for something...couldn't tell you what it was for but it had a red rose! Too bad there wasn't a buff one!

Congrats to Corey Bitzer
She is featured in the Chicago Tribune!

Beyond the varsity drag
Barry Temkin

April 16, 2004
Corey Bitzer competes like Michael Jordan and spends up to 20 hours a week pursuing her love for sports.

Yet most people wouldn't consider her a real college athlete.
A real college athlete, after all, plays for a real college team against other real college teams in front of thousands of real college fans. Bitzer, an Indiana University senior, competes in obscurity on intramural teams.

That relative anonymity ended when Sports Illustrated on Campus featured her in its April 8 edition with a cover story extolling her as "The Greatest Living (Intramural) Athlete."

The story is a funny and flattering look at the hectic life of the 22-year-old former Naperville Central basketball and softball star, who has been named Indiana's female IM athlete of the year as a junior and senior. It's also a subtle reminder that there's life after high school sports, even for kids who were good enough to have played on "real" college teams but decided not to.

Bitzer was that good. She started at point guard for Central's pre-Candace Parker basketball team and was, basketball and softball coach Andy Nussbaum says, the best defensive shortstop he has had.

The 5-foot-4-inch Bitzer could have played intercollegiate basketball, probably at the Division II or III level, but she wanted to get the best education she could while sampling the activities a large university offers.

"I wasn't sure if I would try to play basketball somewhere or just go to a big school and not even try to walk on, just be a student," she says. "So I wanted a place that offered a variety of other things too."

Bitzer did try out for the women's basketball team as a freshman. She made the squad but began to realize participating in a Division I sport would devour her free time and offer little playing time in return. She left the team that October.

"It would have been basketball, homework, bed," she says. "My parents said college is the best years of your life, and I didn't feel I'd enjoy them as much.

"I just wanted to do other things."

She didn't, however, leave basketball with a smile.

"I was crying," she says. "Basketball had been my life to that point. It was a really tough decision."

Bitzer's first foray into the intramural world was in coed basketball. Her team, the Diaper Dandies, won the league title.

That spring she joined the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, and her intramural career really took off as she signed up for one AGD team after another.

Her pursuits have included bowling, cycling, flag football, floor hockey, running, soccer, softball, Ultimate Frisbee, volleyball and Wiffle ball. She has competed in at least 40 IM events, winning 13 titles in seven sports.

Bitzer is so competitive she had a contest with a college friend to see who could grow the best avocado, so it's no surprise she participates in coed IM sports when she can because guys present more of a challenge.

She usually doesn't train for her sports. The exception is Indiana's famed Little 500 bicycle race, for which she lifts weights and rides during a good portion of the school year.

She had not biked competitively before college but won the women's individual time trial last spring and hopes to lead AGD to the women's team title April 23.

"It's pretty clear she has taken advantage of what a Big Ten university can offer," Nussbaum says. "She actually has gone out and done what she said she would do, and then some."

The result has been a calendar that runs out of space, like when Bitzer hurries from a women's softball game to a coed contest in the same night.

"If I have a rare day off, I'm bored out of my mind," she says.

She certainly deserves the recognition the SI on Campus article has brought her. The reaction, Bitzer says, has ranged from hearing from people she hadn't talked to since high school to signing copies of the magazine for a Sports Illustrated collector.

She realizes she probably isn't the No. 1 IM athlete in the country but is proud to be singled out for her achievements.

"It's cool that people are recognizing the things I do and the sports I play and how much effort I do put into the things I do," she says.

Bitzer will graduate next month with a degree in sports marketing and management. She wants athletics to be a permanent part of her life as both a vocation and avocation.

"I don't want to sit behind a desk all day," she says. "I like to be out and be active."

She will leave Indiana with no regrets about the intercollegiate athletic road not taken.

"At first I was unsure if I had made the right decision," Bitzer says, "but since my sophomore year I haven't looked back. I've met so many cool people and am having a great time.

"I think it's hard to beat my life now. I wouldn't want to live it any other way."

JUDY BAAR TOPINKA, state treasurer and Republican Party chief, took time out of her "headache zone" of trying to make a decision on a worthy GOP challenger to go up against Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama, spoke before her Alpha Gamma Delta sisters at their 100th anniversary and annual convention at the Marriott Sunday. Judy, Judy, Judy, you deserve a spa break!

WEDNESDAY PEACH BUZZ
'Big Adventure' for pantyhose exec

By RICHARD ELDREDGE

Atlanta entrepreneur Sara Blakely flew to England on Tuesday afternoon to meet one of her business role models, Virgin founder Richard Branson. Blakely, who has made her name in the business world by creating Spanx footless control-top pantyhose, will spend the next nine weeks with Branson and company as a contestant for the businessman's upcoming Fox reality series, "Branson's Big Adventure."

"After today, we'll have no further contact with Sara until she comes back to Atlanta in October," Spanx representative Sharena Summerall told Buzz on Tuesday. Blakely got through several rounds of interviews prior before being selected for the series. The contestants will face "physical and business-related challenges." All Blakely was told before departing was to expect something "beyond her wildest dreams."

Summerall said friends had initially coaxed Blakely to participate in Donald Trump's NBC reality series, "The Apprentice." While Blakely didn't gravitate toward the wispy-haired comb-over king, she vowed that if Branson ever did a show, "I'll pack my bags."

While Blakely jets around the globe with Fox cameras, Spanx CEO Laurie Ann Goldman will be handling the business end of things in Atlanta.

Said Summerall of Blakely's bag-packing technique: "She did a lot of shopping at REI [Recreational Equipment Inc.], and I know she packed plenty of Spanx.

((Sharena is from Gamma Tau!!!))

I got a free subscription to STUFF magazine and our lovely Amber graces the cover again.

I know some sisters didn't really agree with her first photo spread, but I thought both were very tasteful and she looks even more gorgeous in this one than she did the first time.

Heck, I'm just jealous that a) I don't have a body like that, b) she has an extra million, and c) she has a fiance in hot Boston Rob.

G-d bless you, Amber for choosing STUFF and not Playboy!

Welll..not exactly the news, lol.

I was just watching the 5:00 p.m. news on WSB TV Atlanta when they had an ad for some charity walk. The 1st walkers were AGDs!!!

I was so stunned I didn't look to see if I recognized anyone. I'll have to keep an eye out next time!

Interesting Article on 104 yr. old Alpha Gam

19th century meets 21st century

104-year-old pays hospital call on 2-day-old, tells of childhood in Barberton, staying active

excerpt from article
She completed her education at the University of Akron, or ``the U,'' as she calls it, where she joined the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. She still recalls she was pledge No. 22.

Hickox also studied education over three summers at Harvard.

What a pistol! I love hearing about the "not-so-famous" people of the world and their stories about their life journey. My great grandmother is still alive (but not in the same shape as Ms. Hickoc). But think about all the "new" things that they had lived through and all the "sad" things they have lived through.

This is not a happy news article. Holly Schwind, a former President of our Zeta Sigma Chapter at Northwood University was murdered by her ex-boyfriend last week.

May our thoughts and prayers be with her family.
