Wizards @Heat Tonight, 6 TV: Comcast SportsNet The first time Washington Wizards rookie Bradley Beal attempted to embarrass an opponent with a thunderous jam, he got a painful lesson on the need to think before dunking. Beal picked the wrong target when he elevated for a throw-down on Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith, one of the NBA's best leapers and shot blockers, and crashed on his backside after Smith stuffed the ball. Forced to sit out the next two games last month with a sore left back, Beal was a little more cautious about when to showcase his surprising hops.

Jenna Beal, a registered nurse, was presented with Carroll Hospital Center's July Daisy Award — an honor given to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse to recognize outstanding efforts in patient care. A nurse at the hospital since 2007, Beal was honored specifically for her care of a patient in the critical care unit and her compassion toward the patient's family members. "Jenna is an exceptional nurse who truly understands that providing exceptional patient care means not only attending to the needs of the patient but also assisting and showing compassion toward the patient's family," said Stephanie Reid, vice president of quality and chief nursing officer.

The Washington Wizards insist they aren't wedded to any prospect for the third overall pick, and they remain at the mercy of what the Charlotte Bobcats decide to do ahead of them - whether it's take Kansas junior and Washington native Thomas Robinson or trade down to let another team possibly grab Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal. But the Wizards have three players they are strongly considering: the unassuming and sharpshooting Beal; the polished perimeter scorer Harrison Barnes of North Carolina; and the defensive-minded and grittyMichael Kidd-Gilchrist of Kentucky.

Halfway through the first game of Glenelg's Class 1A state semifinal with Colonel Richardson on Monday night, the Poolesville volleyball team got up and left Ritchie Coliseum in College Park. Maybe team members thought they had seen enough. Glenelg, the No. 8 seed, was losing badly. Maybe the Falcons of Montgomery County thought they would be playing Colonel Richardson tomorrow night in the 1A state championship game. But Glenelg rallied for a strong performance, winning, 16-25, 25-15, 25-5, 25-19, to set up tomorrow's meeting with Poolesville.

Some people never find their life's calling. By the time she turned 13, Amanda Beale had three. Beale started taping radio shows on a karaoke machine at the age of 6, shooting video at 8 and recording music with her older brother's mixer a few years later. "I was never a one-job person," Beale said. Today, Beale, 27, channels her three passions into the local music scene. A consummate multitasker, she has embraced technology and become a pioneer in the local hip-hop community. Her childhood loves have blossomed into a full-time career as a recording studio owner, radio programmer and videographer.
