CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) The girlfriend of one of two men who didn't return on time from a sailing trip says she's heard from them and that they're safe. Tara Bajkowski tells KHOU-TV that Patrick Holden called her around 4 a.m. to say that they were returning to the Port Aransas marina, where they left Saturday night for what was to be a two-day trip. The Coast Guard was conducting a search yesterday and early today for the 27-year-old Holden and 26-year-old Joe Squibb, who had gone sailing on a 25-foot sailboat.

WACO, Texas (AP) While the Fiesta Bowl promises an $18 million payout to the two teams playing tomorrow, Baylor officials say they hope to merely break even. That's because the payout goes to the Big 12 conference, not Baylor. Baylor will get about $2 million from the conference to pay for hotels and travel for about 600 people from the university. Baylor sold 11,000 of its 17,500-ticket allotment, which could further reduce its payout share.
