"Is it true he started his search for justice here in this very supermarket?"We were waiting patiently in line at Giant behind a woman who took the concept of coupons to a frightening level of importance."That's what I had heard," I said cautiously. One evening last week, a customer misinterpreted the meaning of the "15 items or less" sign over the express lane. Her efforts to disguise a week's worth of groceries by dividing them into sub-sets of 15 were quickly discovered by the patrons waiting in line behind her. The man directly behind her in line was more than peeved.

Patrick Kiley's job is teaching English at South River High School, but his passion is running. He is also the school's cross-country coach. Kiley is like many cross-country and track coaches who love the sport. He is a member of the Annapolis Striders running club, and he helps set up and oversee races for high school runners in the area and will do almost anything to help runners - especially on his team - improve. His love of the sport could explain why he spends time making sure that the cross-country trails at the Edgewater school are lined, cleared and ready for use. Coaches in this sport often go beyond the call of duty.

Progressing from a swift walk to an enthusiastic jog, 6-year-old Isabelle led more than 70 beginning runners on their first two laps around the Bates Middle School track Sunday morning. But then she promptly retired to the bleachers. "I got a lot of cramps," she said. The rest of the runners had no trouble completing their first workout as part of the Annapolis Striders Beginning Running Program, a low-impact, six-week course that its directors hope will inspire people to find running partners and add jogging to their fitness regimen.
