WAX2002082703-WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 (UPI)--The northern spotted owl, a threatened species, nests in dense, mature forests. Wildlife biologists do not yet know to what extent Oregon's Biscuit Fire has affected northern spotted owl habitat. But they expect the owls to return after the fire cools down, as this northern spotted owl did after an intense fire in Aug. 2001. jg/jf/Lee O. Cobb UPI

Howard Dicus: Some usual films were made in 1990, such as Dick Tracy, filmed in primary colors like you see in the comics, and this one Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you don't understand it, we can't explain it.

But perhaps we will take a crack at Twin Peaks, the weird TV series of 1990. There is a serial killer who appears to people in dreams and elves that are not what they seem, and an abundance of doughnuts, and oh, forget it.

We saved the northern spotted owl in 1990, by limiting logging at America's oldest forest. And Tuna companies promised to save the dolphins by switching to new nets.

These sea lions came back for a return engagement on the water front in San Francisco, and Humphrey the humpback whale ,once again had to ask for directions to get out of that harbor.

The 49ers won the Super Bowl in 1990, and the Cincinnati Reds won the World Series without the help of Pete Rose, who went to jail for tax evasion. Scandal also yanked George Steinbrenner of his own team.

Speaker: Mr. Steinbrenner will have no further involvement in the management of the New York Yankees ,or in the day-to-day operations of that club.

Howard Dicus: Steinbrenner was banished for hanging out with shady characters. We said goodbye to America's oldest Major League Ballpark in 1990. The Chicago's fans sang Na, na, hey, hey kiss her goodbye at the last Comiskey Park game. At night, police stood guard to stop vandalism by souvenir hunters, and caught a guy trying to steal a base.
