WASHINGTON -- The White House stepped up its pressure yesterday on senators engaging in direct talks with Syrian leaders, saying their trips to Damascus risk undermining U.S. efforts to encourage democracy in the Middle East. The visits come at a particularly difficult time for the Bush administration, which has largely rejected the recommendation of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group that the United States engage with Syria and Iran to bring the sectarian violence in Iraq under control. The administration's relations with Damascus are in a deep freeze in response to, among other things, suspicions that Syria has been involved in at least two high-profile political assassinations in Lebanon and has blocked international attempts to investigate the killings.

WASHINGTON - The head of the independent board investigating the Columbia disaster said yesterday that NASA has not given enough clout to engineering and safety units within the agency meant to ensure the reliability of the shuttle fleet. Harold W. Gehman Jr., the retired admiral who chairs the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, told Congress that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration appears to be "ill-served by an imperfect system of checks and balances." He said engineering specialists may be too closely tied to NASA's shuttle program to effectively offer an independent view of the condition of the orbiters and that another group responsible for safety lacks enough personnel to give it heft.

The Cinderella team of this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament hails from Florida, but its coaches have Maryland roots. Andy Enfield set scoring records at Johns Hopkins before he became head coach at Florida Gulf Coast, the darling of the tournament. His assistant, Kevin "Stink" Norris, grew up in East Baltimore and starred at Lake Clifton. Together, they've put a local face on an upstart team that breaks new ground with every win. The Eagles are the first 15 t h seed in tourney history to make the Sweet 16, and an upset of No. 3 Florida on Friday night would carry Florida Gulf Coast further still.

When Katie Nelson's parents began selecting family photos for her senior page in the McDonogh yearbook, Bill Nelson couldn't help but notice the look on his daughter's face in every sports picture. "You can always see that intensity in her face, even when she was just starting to play. She always had that look," he said. As the men's basketball coach at Johns Hopkins for the past 15 seasons, Bill Nelson knows what "that look" means in an athlete. "She's willing to take a hit, whether it's soccer or basketball," he said.
