THE TWO WORDS I dread more than any others are: "Hockey fight!" Every evening after supper, those words clang through my house like a referee's bell, announcing another round. It means my 16-year-old son, having failed to burn off enough energy during seven hours of school and three hours of sports, has once again attacked his 14-year-old sister, who has learned to hold her own in a manner that would make Darwin blush. As I clean up the dinner dishes, I can hear them rumbling above me like wildebeests around a watering hole.

Patrick Duffy knows what it's like to step out of a shadow and try to carve an individual identity. Duffy knows because his path to cross country was created, in part, by his older brother Billy, a standout at Dulaney whose accomplishments on 3.1-mile courses earned him a spot on the All-Baltimore County team for three straight years and a position on the Bucknell University cross country team. "Everyone always asks me, `Are you going to be as fast as your brother?' " said Patrick Duffy, a sophomore at Dulaney.

Brothers and Sisters, I come to you this morning with the word. And the word this morning is not good, because the word this morning is blasphemy. The General Motors Corp. is trying to use Jesus to sell its cars. It is sponsoring an evangelical Christian concert tour as part of a marketing campaign called "Chevrolet Presents: Come Together and Worship." (There are no stops in the Baltimore-Washington area on the 16-city tour.) Selling heaven is not like selling automobiles, Brothers and Sisters.

Thanks to Jean Marbella for her uplifting story about the Charlestown retirement community ("Charlestown ages gracefully," June 7). My mother, a very independent and independent-minded mother of eight and grandmother of 15, was a resident of the Charlestown community until her recent passing. A few weeks before her "being called home," Mother exclaimed that she had something important to tell me. My first thought was: "Oh no, what is coming next?" Instead, I was taken aback by Mother's words: "Do not worry about me," she said, "and tell your brothers and sisters not to worry about me. I have everything I need right here.

Do you have a friend, co-worker, relative, or neighbor who is gay? Are they not equal citizens and human beings? How can we deny them the same rights that we heterosexuals enjoy? If your religion prevents you from accepting our gay brothers and sisters into your congregation or accepting them as equals, then so be it. Remember this law - Question 6 on the ballot - is about civil marriage and does nothing, absolutely nothing to change your church or its religious rites. Read the law if you doubt this fact.

A state appeals court has refused to revive a lawsuit against a Roman Catholic order based in Baltimore by two siblings who sued the order, claiming that one of its priests was their father. Carla A. Latty of New Jersey and her brother, Adrian Senna of British Columbia, sued the Saint Joseph's Society of the Sacred Heart and others for $10 million in 2009. They contend that the order should be held responsible for failing to end a longtime relationship that began in the 1940s in Montgomery, Ala., between the Rev. Francis E. Ryan and their mother, Anna Maria "Ria" Senna, both of whom are now deceased.

Wells and Covie Stanwick were practically born with lacrosse sticks in their hands. By the time they could walk, they were trying to emulate their older siblings Sheehan, Wick, Coco, Tad and Steele, who were beginning to lay the groundwork that would make the name Stanwick synonymous with Baltimore lacrosse. All five helped their high school teams win championships and went on to stellar college careers -- four as All-Americans who played in at least one Final Four. Wells, 19, and Covie, who turns 18 on Sunday, carry on that legacy.

During a recent first-grade class session at the McDonogh School in Baltimore, 7-year-old Aidan Wade gave an impromptu discussion on what it's like to have a sibling with autism. "My brother Conor is 11, but his brain thinks he's 5," said the Baltimore boy. "He acts kind of different, but that's OK." Aidan's words reflect a broad spectrum of attitudes that one might find in siblings of children with autism, a complex set of developmental brain disorders. How a sibling reacts is often dependent upon the severity of the autism, where the child with autism falls in the birth order and how parents model behavior they expect from each of their children.

The hammer hits the metal with well-placed strikes. Plink, plink, plink. In our mass-produced, throw-it-away society, it's tempting to hear the sound as the quaint signature of yet another dying art. But at her studio in an old Baltimore carriage house, silversmith Martha Hopkins has a more optimistic view as she begins fashioning six silver bar measures used for mixing drinks. To this 48-year-old artisan, the sound is the heartbeat of a craft that, while fading, still has a lot of life left beyond the nostalgic trappings of Colonial Williamsburg.
