Monday's intriguing people

Tad Boyle

The head coach of the University of Colorado Buffaloes basketball team is trying to comprehend why his team did not make the field of 68 in the NCAA tournament while trying to motivate his guys to begin play in the post-season National Invitation Tournament. Boyle was hosting a watch party at his house that was featured on the CBS broadcast that announced the brackets, and the nation saw stunned and disappointed faces as Colorado's players and coaches realized they would not be playing in the tournament.  "I had no words to console them," Boyle said afterward. "I thought we were in." He wasn't the only one.

Ashleigh Harvey

The 13-year-old girl from St. Albans, England, was on vacation with her family in Spain when she saw a toddler fall into the deep end of a swimming pool, according to a report in The Herts Advertiser over the weekend. She jumped in and pulled him off the bottom, thinking he was dead. He wasn't. The trustee for her youth soccer team said the heroic act was not out of character for Ashleigh, who shows up an hour early to practice to help the coaches with the younger teams. Ashleigh’s mom, Suzanne, says her daughter has been embarrassed by the attention since returning to England. “She can’t see what all the fuss is about.”

Ron Karzmar

The Seattle-based physicist and engineer is paying close attention to the news about Japan's nuclear reactors because he was one of the developers of the Fukushima plant. Karzmar told CNN affiliate KOMO-TV that he's very concerned. "I have yet to see anybody from the plant who's an engineer that can actually tell us what's happening – they can't see inside there because it's highly radioactive."

    Way to go, Ashleigh! How humble can this girl be? Her parents sure raised her right!

    I'll bet Mr. Karzmar is watching closely...he'll be blamed one way or another! Since he's one of the design engineers, why aren't they utilizing *him* for more information? He helped *design* it, after all!

    no worries.. Your women are inferior.. And no n.r.a or claims of human rights can hide the simple facts. Sarah palin or ayn rand are just shill and tokens of true womanhood. Drink up.. And make some more.
