For the past eight months, Luke Brackett has been part administrator, part lone ranger. Hired by Baltimore City in November to spearhead the creation of a new police force to protect the three city-owned reservoirs in Baltimore and Carroll counties, Brackett spends part of his days patrolling the watersheds and part interviewing applicants interested in joining his force.

Her office, built of plywood in a corner of Pimlico's crowded paddock, is the size of a small walk-in closet.From there, Dr. Patricia Brackett, 70, easily can sprint onto the racetrack and make her way to the starting gate.Once there, she only has eyes for the beautiful, prancing horses. Her sharp, greenish-brown eyes study every move the thoroughbreds make.She watches their gait, the way they walk. She watches how they load into the starting gate, looking for anything out of the ordinary.

MIAMI -- Flying down to the Super Bowl, Indianapolis linebacker Gary Brackett was looking at old photos on his digital camera. He saw the faces of his mother, father and brother, putting the biggest game of his career in poignant perspective. Brackett lost all three family members in a matter of 21 months. "Not having them here is kind of tough, but I think they're going to be in the house," Brackett said. "I think they are still looking down on me from above." The Indianapolis Colts' journey to the Super Bowl is not solely about the wins.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. - This fall, Arkansas began selling specialty license plates decorated with a crayon-like drawing of two children and the words "Choose Life." It was the latest in a string of coordinated victories for a Florida-based organization, Choose Life Inc., whose Web site says its license plate campaign allows drivers to "speak up for the unborn." Supporters say the plates are intended to encourage women facing crisis pregnancies to choose adoption over abortion; critics call the plates a subversive message and an inappropriate use of government-sponsored space.
