NEW YORK (AP) -- Philip Hayes was 67 and had been retired from the Fire Department more than 20 years on the morning when he rushed to the burning World Trade Center. His family says he rescued children from a day care and then headed to the south tower, where he died. His son, Philip Hayes Jr., was among the mourners who read aloud the names of the lost Friday on the eighth anniversary of 9/11 -- a day when the nation, in rituals of grief and simple acts of volunteerism, rekindled the spirit of service embodied by his father.

"I am wondering what the person who said illegals have a right to be here when an illegal driving with no license or insurance becomes involved in an accident with him or her and (the) illegal is at fault ? or the Demos say they need us (to) open our hearts even more on tax increase to help the illegals have more food, medical care, housing, education for the illegals. To hear Pelosi, this is what is going to happen. This country is bending and bowing to everyone, anyone coming here, illegal or legal.

With every victory and every defeat in sports, or for that matter in anything else, there is a way to go about accepting the results. In celebrating victory, you can be gracious, cordial and empathetic to the loser or, as is the case quite often, the individual or team realizing success has a way of simply flexing its achievement. In suffering defeat, you can learn from accepting what you have been dealt. You accept it, learn from it, move on and try to become better from it. Friday's Maryland playoff game between Boonsboro and Beall at Frostburg State University was a classic example of what goes on in competition these days.
