This is for four women who are not here. It is for grandchildren who never existed and retirement celebrations that were never held. It is for Sunday dinners that were never prepared in homes that were never purchased. It is for children who were never born and fathers who never got to walk daughters down the aisle. It is for mortarboards that were never flung into the air, for first kisses that were never stolen, for dreams that ended even as they still were being conceived. This is for four little girls who died, 50 years ago today.

The Rev. Abraham Lincoln Woods Jr. was there at the beginning, when a bomb ripped through 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., in 1963, killing four young girls. It was a heinous crime and a significant event in the civil rights struggle. Nearly 40 years after the blast that rocked a city and a nation, the trial of the last suspect in the bombing began last week. For Mr. Woods, a 73-year-old Baptist preacher, this day has been a long time coming. It was years before anyone was even charged in the crime, and then only one man, Robert Chambliss, was brought to trial and convicted in 1977.

Your editorial on the 50 t h anniversary of the March on Washington contains many historical and statistical distortions ( "Unfinished business," Aug. 27). The Birmingham march led by Martin Luther King in 1963 deserves righteous indignation, but the editorial overlooks the compelling case made by Ann Coulter in Demonic that the march was unnecessary and opposed even by staunch Birmingham supporters of the civil rights struggle. The struggle largely had been won in the courts and at the ballot box. Birmingham Police Chief Bull Conner, for example, had been voted out of office.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- This was supposed to be a new Birmingham team, nothing like the one the Baltimore Stallions blew out in an exhibition game five weeks ago.Last night at Legion Field, the expansion Barracudas faced Baltimore in a battle for supremacy in the Canadian Football League's Southern Division, and the Stallions brushed Birmingham aside with ease once more, 36-8, before 30,729.The victory, Baltimore's fourth straight, gave the Stallions (4-1) sole possession of first place for the first time this season.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Jack Pardee is starting over again at age 58, in another league with high hopes and low budgets, in a city accustomed to off-Broadway brands.A proven commodity with a recognizable face, he is the right fit for both the upstart Birmingham Barracudas and the troubled Canadian Football League. Indeed, there are certain selling points Pardee brings with him to Legion Field that are impossible to mistake.There is the run-and-shoot offense, for instance, that has become his calling card.

When attackmen Rory Averett and Kyle Boncaro and midfielder Matt Lynch graduated after last season, Goucher lost more than 700 career points. So how would the offense respond in 2013? The team caught a glimpse Saturday in a 13-9 victory over Birmingham-Southern in which the offense scored 11 goals in the second half. Junior Pierce Ingram recorded four goals and two assists and senior Zachary Fratella posted three goals from the first midfield, and the starting attack of sophomore Sam Morgan, junior Max Roach and sophomore Dylan Zook combined for four goals and five assists.

Let me start by saying this -- I want more WWE televised events to happen outside the U.S. Maybe that's not entirely true. Let me rephrase -- I want more WWE televised events where we hear reactions like the ones we heard this week. Both Raw (Monday) and Smackdown (Tuesday) were in Birmingham, England this week. The crowd was so good, that even on the second consecutive night of WWE action, the crowd reaction and party atmosphere rivalled many WWE crowds stateside. Many segments and matches felt even more special just because the Birmingham crowd was so vocal.

This is the first-ever meeting between these teams. Birmingham-Southern (14-4) has won seven of its last eight contests, including upending Colorado College, 8-5, for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament crown and earning the automatic qualifier for the NCAA tournament. The only two losses Stevenson (15-4) has absorbed in the last 12 games have been to No. 1 seed Salisbury. Here are a few factors that could influence this NCAA tournament first-round contest at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills Wednesday night.

Junior attackman Tyler Reid set a career high with five goals as Stevenson defeated Birmingham-Southern, 13-2, in a first-round NCAA Division III men's lacrosse tournament game Wednesday at Mustang Stadium. Reid scored in a multitude of ways as the Mustangs (16-4) pounded the Panthers (14-5). Freshman midfielder Billy Burgoyne and sophomore attackman J.P. Coombe (St. Mary's) each added two goals for Stevenson, which entered the game averaging 10.6 goals. Reid and his Stevenson teammates were relentless in attacking Birmingham-Southern's zone defense as the Mustangs outshot the Panthers 47-25.

For each of the previous three years, Stevenson enjoyed regular-season records of 15-1 in 2009, 17-1 in 2010 and 17-2 in 2011. And that success enabled the school to collect a top-two seed and a first-round bye in the South region of the NCAA tournament. But on Sunday night, the Mustangs (15-4) learned that they will play in their first first-round contest when they play host to Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference champion Birmingham-Southern (14-4) this Wednesday at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills.
