For Becky Perlow, the next destination looms 19,341 feet above sea level. The goal? Reaching the top of Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro, located 3 degrees south of the equator and deemed by many the highest free-standing and "walkable" mountain in the world. That's easier said than done, but Perlow's father, Howard, said he thinks his daughter will make it. "When she sets a goal, she usually finds a way to complete that goal," he said. Since 1991, Kilimanjaro-goers have been legally required to climb with a guide, so Perlow, 26, is hitting the hillside with the travel organization Adventures Within Reach and three other climbers, excluding the guides.

It rained the day Becky Rhoads married Scott Blevins. She had planned her wedding down to the last pink and blue detail, but the weather was one thing she just couldn't control. It rained so much that day she had to cry. "Even though it was raining, honey, you and Scott were the handsomest couple," her mother insists with a worried look. Becky's face, swollen from morphine, relaxes on the pillow of her bed at the nursing home. "We were handsome," she agrees. And it was the happiest day of her life.

It is not surprising setting came naturally to River Hill's Becky Paynter, considering her mother was a setter during her college days at William and Mary. In her second year on varsity, the junior has registered 355 assists (8.9 per game) and leads the Hawks in serving percentage (.970) and aces (59). Paynter started playing volleyball when she was 12 and also plays for the Maryland Juniors Volleyball Club. Over the summer, she spent two weeks in China with her club team and said the experience and training she received have been invaluable in making her a better player.

Becky and Lizzie Nimmich hadn't always been close. But in the fall of 1998, when Lizzie started as a freshman at her big sister's high school, they became best friends during a cherished daily ritual. They'd drive home together, laughing and eating junk food, with Becky, 17, at the wheel. On a gray afternoon in October, Becky wheeled out of the parking lot of Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Wheaton. Lizzie reclined her seat and closed her eyes as they slipped past the fields and fences on their way home to Ellicott City.

Becky may sound like Tom Sawyer's girlfriend, but the Becky we're talking about here is the Perennial Plant of the Year for 2003. Leucanthemum 'Becky' is a single, white daisy with sturdy stems that do not require staking. Suitable for borders, containers or naturalized areas, 'Becky' grows to 3 feet in height, and begins flowering in late June. If deadheaded, the flowers will keep coming into September. The flower took top honors as this year's perennial because experts judged it not only attractive but easy to grow and adaptable to many different parts of the country.

While most lacrosse players can only stew and grumble about calls made by referees, Liberty's Becky Trumbo can go to a higher authority: her mom. Fran Trumbo, Becky's mother, is an international lacrosse referee, one of 13 Americans qualified to officiate lacrosse games in the United States and abroad. But if Becky, a talented 16-year-old sophomore who plays attack for the Lions, expects to get any sympathy from her own flesh and blood, she has learned that she is preaching to the wrong choir.

Back in January 1996, Becky Dowling, then a sophomore, was performing like an All-League forward for the Navy women's basketball team, averaging 18.1 points and 9.1 rebounds.Playing against archrival Army, she soared for a rebound, collided with a rival and fell awkwardly to the floor, twisting her left knee.It would be diagnosed as a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament, an injury that would sideline Dowling for the rest of the season, probably costing the Midshipmen a run at the Patriot League title.

Bay Theatre is serving up laughs along with life lessons this holiday season in its offering of the East Coast premiere of Steven Dietz's "Becky's New Car," a play that first appeared in October 2008 after Dietz was commissioned by a Seattle businessman to create a play as a birthday present for his wife. Now this contemporary escapist fare becomes Bay's holiday gift for us to share as we enter Becky's humdrum life, soon to hum with excitement. Having written over 30 original plays, Dietz is now the most-produced playwright in America and has never had a play on Broadway.

Becky Groves Century When the junior varsity coach at Century quit just before the 2008 season, athletic director Randy Pentz knew just where to find a worthy replacement. That choice eventually led to the school's first state title in volleyball. After just a year on the JV level, Groves was promoted to the varsity job, where she has compiled a 47-6 record in three years for the No. 3 Knights (18-1). The team improved each year under her leadership and almost had an undefeated season this year before dropping the final regular-season match to Williamsport.

If you needed intrigue to spice up a match, you would have found it at Liberty High in Eldersburg on Tuesday night. Just ask the Trumbos. Becky Trumbo was seventh-ranked Century's coach, while younger brother Bryan manned the bench for No. 13 Liberty. In the end though, the older sister's Knights won, 25-23, 24-26, 25-19, 25-17, in a match that had more twists and turns than a Stephen King novel. The match was played before a large crowd from both schools, which are less than 10 miles apart.

Century volleyball coach Becky Trumbo wonders whether she'll get a hug from her kid brother, Bryan, tonight. It happened the last time their teams played. Becky, 26, was coaching her first season at Century last year, and Bryan, 23, was doing the same at Liberty as their teams were set to play each other. As the coaches and captains met with officials, Becky extended her hand for a routine handshake. Instead, Bryan reeled her in for a big brotherly hug. Gamesmanship?

The senior ended a fine career by capturing the Class 3A state championship Nov. 14 at Hereford High, finishing with a time of 20 minutes, 25 seconds to win by 15 seconds over Clarksburg freshman Abigail Daley. Yep, who captured the Howard County championship and also dominated the 3A East regional race, earned first-team All-Metro honors last year after taking second place at the state meet. In addition to cross country, Yep, who is still undecided on a college, is a standout performer in outdoor track for the Vikings, taking fourth at states in the 3,200 meters and seventh in the 1,600.

At long last, Survivor: Cook Islands is over, and it's unclear whether the latest twist - that the final three would stand before the jury rather than the final two - made much of a difference. Even though Becky was in the final three, she received exactly zero votes to win. But her presence in the final three meant it really was a head-to-head competition between strategist Yul and challenge-dominator Ozzy - neither was tempted to take a weaker player to the final two for an easy win, as we've seen happen in numerous seasons before.

It was under this tree that fifth-grader Becky Paynter found her first friend at Clarksville Elementary School. In the shade of the hulking silver maple, the new second-grader was spotted at recess by a classmate who invited her to play soccer. In third grade, Becky used the tree in a science project: She observed it. She craned her neck in awe of it. She loved it. By fourth grade, she had deemed the tree "Da Bomb." So when chain saw-wielding construction workers gathered menacingly around the tree last week, poised to cut it down to make way for a parking lot, Becky, energized by four years of history and admiration, flung herself against its peeling trunk.
