When the timekeeper said "Go!" Mark Weider grabbed a basketball and let it fly. In the gym at Bel Air Middle School, the eighth-grader fired five shots from beyond the three-point line before moving on to the next spot and shooting five more. He had one minute to shoot from five locations. In all the commotion, he wasn't sure how he had fared. "I don't know how many baskets I made," he said after finishing the first of two rounds last week. "I was shooting too fast to count." The 13-year-old is not the only one trying to fill up the hoop at a local school.

For Anne Efron, this Valentine's Day is about more than boxes of chocolate and long-stemmed roses. This year, the holiday is truly a celebration of the heart. The one that's beating in her chest. In late January of last year, Efron, a project administrator with the Center for AIDS Research at the Johns Hopkins University, was at home in Ruxton, planning dinner with her husband, David, the chief surgeon with Hopkins Hospital's division of acute care surgery. They planned to grill but discovered they were out of propane, so David went to the store, leaving home for about 15 minutes.

BECAUSE HER father died of a heart attack at age 37, Claudette Ellis made it a point to adopt a healthful lifestyle. The Wilde Lake resident walked every morning, practiced yoga and was on a healthful diet. But that wasn't enough to prevent Ellis from having a heart attack in December 1998. "For about three weeks, I noticed that as soon as I started my walk, I was having pain in my jaw and in my chest," said Ellis, 49. "I would stop, wait a few seconds and finish my workout." Ellis made an appointment with her doctor, who scheduled a stress test and an echocardiogram.

The Progressives won on Tuesday. I don't mean the people who voted Democrat who call themselves "progressive. " Though they won, too. I mean the Progressives who've been waging a century-long effort to transform our American-style government into a European-style state. The words "government" and "state" are often used interchangeably, but they are really different things. According to the Founders' vision, the people are sovereign and the government belongs to us. Under the European notion of the state, the people are creatures of the state, significant only as parts of the whole.

Once among the thousands of dogs roaming Baghdad, a city that considers strays a menace, Sara eluded traps set by police and survived a car accident - albeit with a broken leg. Lately, Sara has been spending her time in the company of a family in Bel Air, a dramatic change in fortunes brought about by a U.S. military contractor with a soft spot for neglected animals. Andrew Leeson, a U.S. Navy veteran working as a private security contractor in Iraq, found Sara and named her. He fed her, hid her from the police, paid for surgery to right her front paw and made it his mission to find her a home in the U.S. He connected with SPCA International and helped arrange Sara's flight from Baghdad to the U.S. When the pup landed at Washington Dulles International Airport, he knew he had finally rescued Sara.

You might call this a requiem for reverence. It seems that one Jeffrey Darnell Paul, a graphic artist from Miami Beach, had been tasked with creating a poster for a strip club's so-called "I Have a Dream Bash" last week in apparent "honor" of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. So this genius concocts an image of the nation's greatest human rights leader holding up a fan of $100 dollar bills like some low-rent "playa" while a scantily clad woman looks on. Mr. Paul, let the record show as African-Americans duck their heads in mortification, is black.

It was 1985, and Gordon Tomaselli had graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of California at San Francisco. He was at a Boston hospital, interviewing for a possible fellowship, when he got the phone call: His mother had gone into cardiac arrest. Within three weeks, Patricia Tomaselli would have a new heart, and her son would have a new career path. Before that moment, Tomaselli said, he had not been entirely set on a career as a cardiologist.
