Turn the team around
Monday's firing of Reds general manager Jim Bowden, manager Bob Boone and two coaches was more than a baseball move to shake up a team that has plunged into awfulness after a decent first half of the season.

Survivor secret
Cocky Texan Lance Armstrong, 31, felt "humbled" this year by his victorious, problem-plagued showing in the 2,129-mile Tour de France. He is now one of only five riders in the 100-year history of the race to win it five times and one of only two men to win five straight. He already vowed to try for a sixth.

Life-saving alternative
Thousands of Americans whose lives could easily be saved die each year of heart failure because of slow emergency response. That's the conclusion of a USA Today study, titled "6 Minutes to Live or Die," published Monday and today in the Enquirer.
