WHEN a mystical slave named Nat Turner was formally hanged by the deputy sheriff of Southampton County, Va., on Nov. 11, 1831, after leading a short-lived but bloody insurrection, he could never have imagined the use to which his death would be put 163 years later.For Turner, whose inquisitive mind taught him to read and immersed him deeply in the Bible, saw himself, by virtually all accounts, as an Old Testament prophet called by God to lead his people. Like the vast majority of 19th century American blacks, whose spirituals repeatedly call forth the image of the Children of Israel in bondage in Egypt, he identified with the Jewish people.

PATSY AND PEEREditor: I would like to thank you for the excellent account of Patsy Cline written by Douglas Gomery and Bob Allen ["Patsy's People," Dec. 12]. It was the first article on this wonderful singer I can recall that ever mentioned her first mentor, Bill Peer.In 1953, I was a senior at Martinsburg (W. Va.) High School and worked weekends for radio station WEPM. Bill Peer and his Melody Boys and Patsy Cline sang on the station with some regularity. After they had been teamed for awhile, it was easy to know when they were at the station.

It got so bad that Lt. Leander "Bunny" Nevin, a 37-year `D veteran of the Baltimore force, felt compelled to say something at his next shift change.

"There was laughter, of course, but the lieutenant wasn't finished: "I'm serious, you should fill these out," he told them.

Everything about the Canadian Football League presented a positive opportunity for Bernie Faloney, who quarterbacked the University of Maryland to its only national title and then went on to fulfill a bountiful 13-year playing experience, including the most valuable player award, four winning performances in seven Grey Cup games and, after all that, ultimately an outstanding career in business.Faloney is considered the "John Unitas" of Canada and, with a touch of irony, they unknowingly faced each other in a Pittsburgh-area high school rivalry, Faloney and St. Luke's vs. Unitas and St. Justin's.

The Village of Cross Keys is a small version of Columbia. A very small version.In many ways, Cross Keys served as a model for the Rouse Co. in the development of Columbia several years later. The concept for both is simple: homes, offices and retail space set in an attractive landscaped setting adjacent to major roads and public transportation.The innovative community -- featuring 700 homes, an inn, bank and 24 stores and offices that are set around a commercial village center -- is bounded on the north by Northern Parkway and the south by the playing fields and buildings of the Polytechnic Institute and Western High School.

COACH OF THE YEARMike Mohler, Seton Keough -- Before the season began, first-year coach Mike Mohler asked Seton Keough athletic director Mary Burns where she thought the Gators would finish in the Catholic League. Burns told him that fifth place was realistic, third place optimistic.Mohler, the eternal optimist, led the team to a 10-4 league record, good enough for third place behind third-ranked St. Frances and fourth-ranked St. Mary's. Although five of its top six players were underclassmen, Seton Keough finished the season with an 18-8 overall record and a No. 14 ranking, the team's best showing since winning its third consecutive Catholic League championship in 1991.
