______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Catherine Handlin, 24, Walnut Creek, California Walnut Creek High school coach had sex with students, exchanged lewd images A former girls basketball coach has been arrested and charged with two felonies after a police investigation determined she had two sexual encounters with a minor, authorities said. Catherine Handlin, 24, was a junior varsity girls basketball coach at Berean Christian High School -- a private school in Walnut Creek -- until these allegations surfaced. She faces charges of oral copulation with a minor -- which would require Handlin to register as a sex offender if she's convicted -- and sex with a minor, according to the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office. She is also accused of exchanging sexual texts with students. The investigation started Jan. 8, after the school received an anonymous tip that Handlin had been engaging in inappropriate conduct with a student, and immediately called police. Detectives located two male students -- an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old -- who admitted to receiving nude pictures from Handlin, police said. Handlin never coached either of the students, according to authorities. Principal Nelson Noriega said he alerted parents at the beginning of the investigation and recently sent out a second mass email explaining to families what had happened. Authorities conducted interviews and determined that Handlin had engaged in two sexual encounters with the 17-year-old, and she was arrested on Jan. 10. She has been released after posting $70,000 bail but was fired from her coaching job the same day the allegations surfaced, police said. According to authorities, the sexual encounters happened Dec. 31 and Jan. 7 in cars parked in Clayton and Walnut Creek. Handlin's attorney, Dan O'Malley, called the incident "an unfortunate mistake in judgment." "She's taking responsibility for it," he said. Handlin's father, Mike, echoed that sentiment. "Catherine made a mistake," he told ABC7 News. "She's taking responsibility. She's a young adult. There's no reason to drag her over the coals for the rest of her life for this." The two charges are known to authorities as "wobblers" because they can be prosecuted as misdemeanors or felonies. After reviewing all the facts, authorities decided to prosecute the case as felonies, even though Handlin's alleged crimes weren't as egregious as many sex crimes that get prosecuted, such as child molestation or rape, Flynn said. "It's a position of trust issue, with a student and teacher or coach," he said. "That's the thing that's troubling about it." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Vera P Re: USB sockets Dear Webby Why do they put the USB ports at the most awkward spots at the BACK of a computer? I curse those morons every time I have to crawl under my desk with a flashlight to plug something in. Could I drill a hole in the front and glue that silly plug in there? Vera P Dear Vera There is a much better solution. Get yourself a 4 or 6 port USB hub and a 10 foot high speed USB cable, and a little strip of double-sided tape. Plug the cable into one of the hard to get at USB ports at the back of the computer and snake it up to the monitor. With 10 feet of cable you should be able to route it in a way so that it doesn't look too messy or get in the way. Then plug the USB hub into it and glue the hub to the side of the monitor in a way so that the OUT ports of the hub are facing towards you. Now you can plug and unplug things without bashing your head against the underside of your desk. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Here is somethnig you can tell everybody in the elevator today: "Most people are really scared of werewolves but I bet if you saw one crying because the other wolves had made fun of him, you would probably feel sorry for him and try to pet him.

I have found a simple way to successfully clean this. All you need is soap, water, and a battery powered toothbrush. Wet the toothbrush bristles, turn the brush on, and push the bristles against a wet bar of soap. Scrub along the nooks and crannies of the leather carefully, rinsing the brush and scrubbing once more. Then wipe clean. Very easy and cheap! Amazing difference! ______________________________________________________

Good To Be Alive
____________________________________________________ My sister was bemoaning the fact that she had procrastinated cleaning and organizing her house for a long time. Since she was planning to entertain, she felt a lot of pressure to get moving. That afternoon she phoned, sounding glum. "I went to the bookstore," she explained, "and I bought a book on how to get organized. I was all fired up, and decided to clean out all the shelves in the living room. While I was working, I found the same darn book. I had bought it a couple of years ago." ____________________________________________________ They were having their first fight, and finally he said, "When we got married, you promised to love, honor and obey." She said, "I just didn't want to embarrass you in front of all those people anf have them think you got stuck with an argumentative nag." ____________________________________________________
