Ann did the same for a number of male patrons of the Free Library's Rodriguez branch, including a Spanish-speaking man who wanted to woo an English-speaking woman. Ann helped him write the love letter, and the man got his first date. Alas, Ann never found out if the romance lasted. Ann was a librarian, but nothing like the librarians usually thought of as dowdy spinsters in dim rooms reeking of the dusty volumes of forgotten lore.

The girls had a plan. The guy never knew a thing about it. He talked to another girl most of the night.

"I like this tournament better than any other tournament," Wright said on more than one occasion this past week. "I just love being in New York, love being in the Garden.

Cayman Naib was described as a "thoughtful, bright, fun-loving" student at a candlelight vigil only hours after searchers found him dead, nearly completely covered in snow, in a shallow creek on a remote edge of his parents' Delaware County property. The 13-year-old eighth grader's dimpled grin and shock of dark hair had become familiar in recent days to the hundreds of searchers who braved bitter cold hoping to find him alive after he left home Wednesday night hours before the season's worst snowstorm.
