The Cave Fire started on Nov. 25, and the cause remains under investigation. Strong winds fueled the flames that quickly spread and raced down the south side of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and even jumped Highway 154 in several spots causing the closure of the highway for more than a week. Caltrans officials said that the guardrails needed to be replaced, and the hillsides needed to be assessed before they could allow the public to drive the pass.

Notable: The last team to pick No. 1 overall in consecutive seasons was Cleveland, which picked an edge rusher (Myles Garrett) in 2017 and a quarterback (Baker Mayfield) in 2018). The Jags went QB (Trevor Lawrence) and then pass rusher in Walker.
Breakdown: Relentless and efficient pass rusher with a good combination of technique and an assortment of moves. Overall athleticism is a notch below some elite pass rushers who have gone in the top five in recent years like the Bosa brothers.
Breakdown: Massive anchor in the middle of a defense, but with uncommon athleticism and speed (4.78 in the 40 at the combine). Questions about whether he can be the type of pass rusher that makes him a high-snap-count interior lineman.
Until recently, black teens had substantially higher rates of sexual activity than whites. Now, the differences between older teens of both races have narrowed. But once more, these aggregate figures obscure underlying age differentials. For males and females, the gap narrowed between the 15-year-old and 18-year-old groups. Finding birth control Many people believe that there would be less teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases if contraceptives were simply more available to teen-agers, hence the call for sex education at younger ages, condoms in the schools, and expanded family planning programs in general.

Some school districts in Central Florida have passed resolutions against the idea.)
Moviegoers passed on the chance to see JohnTravolta as an evil dreadlocked alien as the A-list star's new film BattlefieldEarth opened in second place with a disappointing $11.5M, or$750,000 less than originally estimated. Warner Bros. saturated the marketplaceby releasing the science fiction tale in a massive 3,307 theaters but managedto average a not-so-menacing $3,492. Crucified by critics, BattlefieldEarth takes place in the year 3000 and finds Travolta as a leaderof an alien race that has taken over the planet and has enslaved humans.The story was based on a novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. 59ce067264
