PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — John Rocker, the former Atlanta, Cleveland and Texas relief pitGher, hopes his new contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays will lead to his return to Major League Baseball. "I'm not really here to focus on the past. I really want to move forward," said Rocker, who played for the Atlanta Braves when he made insensitive remarks about minorities, gays and others in a 1999 Sports Illustrated article. "I'm definitely a much different, much better person now than I used to be," he said. Rocker signed with the Devil Rays on April 10 and was assigned to Triple-A Durham. He said he hopes to be pitching in the majors in a month. Devil Rays General Manager Chuck LaMar, who was in the Braves' front office when Rocker signed with Atlanta, said the team "is not condoning any bad actions, whether it be John Rocker or anybody else. It is the past." In the Sports Illustrated article, Rocker said Relief pitcher John Rocker's trou he didn't want to ride the New York subway and have to bled career may be on the rebound, sit "next to some queer with AIDS."

(Photo by AP) III. judge denies trans man custody of child CHICAGO (AP) — A judge ruled April 8 a transgender man can't have custody of a 10-year-old because the man was born a woman and has no standing to seek custody of the boy. Cook County Circuit Judge Gerald Bender granted the mother sole custody of the boy. The couple, unidentified for the child's protection, married in 1985 without disclosing that the groom was born a woman and underwent hormone therapy but still had female genitals. The mother became pregnant through artificial insemination. In his 13-page opinion, Bender said he could not violate state law, which does not recognize same-sex marriages. But because the boy has established a bond with his father, the judge ordered continued visitation for the child. County Public Guardian Patrick Murphy, representing the child, contended that gender and marriage are irrelevant to a boy who accepts and loves his father. "Of course we will appeal it," Murphy said. Planned AIDS memorial in LA. sparks controversy •LOS ANGELES — A planned AIDS memorial in northeast Los Angeles sparked protests that some say are based in homophobia, the Los Angeles Times reported. The City Council is scheduled to consider this week a proposal by The Wall/Las Memorias that has won approval from the Recreation & Parks Commission. It would create a 9,000 square foot memorial with eight panels, including six with art and two with names of people who have died of AIDS. The mostly publicly funded memorial would also feature benches, a rose garden and a path. While environmentalists have opposed the plan because it would be created from existing parkland, new fliers signed by the Coalition to Save Lincoln Park claim that an organization of "Latino gay men has been covertly trying to make a monument to themselves" and the memorial could cause children to visit the group's Web site, where they "will not only read about the gay lifestyle but will also see invitations to participate in gay pool parties." Key West to display mile-long, three-ton rainbow flag KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — The artist who created the rainbow flag is sewing a 11/4- mile long, 16-foot-wide version of the internationally recognized gay pride symbol to be unfurled in Key West on June 15, the final day of the city's upcoming PrideFest festival. Gilbert Baker's mammoth creation is to be displayed along the entire length of Duval Street, the island's main thoroughfare. Baker created the original rainbow flag in San Francisco 25 years ago. "Some of my friends call me the Betsy Ross of the gay community," Baker said. The Key West flag commemorates the 25th anniversary of the original rainbow flag's creation. Its debut will also kick off rainbow flag anniversary events around America. Sections of the banner are to travel to 100 cities. Baker, a San Francisco resident, estimates the full flag will weigh more than three tons. Calif, lesbian couple sues over country club rules SAN DIEGO — Despite registering as domestic partners in San Diego and California, B. Koebke and Kendall French, lesbian partners for 10 years, are not treated as spouses at the pricey Bernardo Heights Country Club. The couple has sued the golf club, arguing Koebke's $700-per-month membership should entitle her partner to receive the full playing privileges awarded to spouses, according to the Los Angeles Times. The club said its bylaws restrict the memberships to "the member's legal spouse." A lower court dismissed the lawsuit in June, but the couple has appealed, charging the club has violated a California law barring discrimination in public businesses. "Basically, they don't want gays," Koebke said. From staff and wire reports I
