In bold black letters across the back of Calloway Lee's Catonsville High wrestling hoodie are two words: Bone Crusher. Take a quick glance at the senior heavyweight wrestler's 5-foot-9, 220-pound frame and couple that with his accolades as the captain and MVP of the Comets' football and wrestling teams, and the nickname is warranted. But ask those around Lee, and they have different words for him. Once that hoodie comes off, the real Calloway Lee - one they say always puts others before himself - takes to the field or mat. "I think he's probably one of the most caring athletes I've been around," Catonsville football coach Rich Hambor said of Lee, who plays defensive line and running back.

For four years, Catonsville High's Class of 2002 has used a little red devil as its mascot. Now, after a single complaint, the school's seniors are wondering if they'll have to give it up. It all started during the finale of last week's homecoming "spirit week" competition. With eyes on the $50 prize to the class with the best-decorated hallway on Friday, seniors spent hours hanging red and silver balloons, construction paper flames, cardboard cutouts of their smiling devil and signs asking, "Can you handle the heat?"

Playing fields in Catonsville and Lutherville will soon boast artificial turf as part of a pilot project paid for with county and state money, county officials and local legislators announced yesterday. County parks officials plan to install artificial turf at the Catonsville High School stadium and at a field in Lutherville's Seminary Park. The county will pay $2 million, with state money raised through a bond sale making up the remaining $400,000. A synthetic-grass field could ease the demand for playing fields because it could be used continuously without needing a rest between seasons to allow grass to recover, officials said.

The stick-figure red devil that has served as the mascot of the Class of 2002 at Catonsville High School since the seniors were freshmen is again welcome on campus. Nearly two weeks ago, at the culmination of the school's "spirit week," seniors decked the front hall with red and silver balloons, paper flames and cardboard cut-outs of their cartoonish devil mascot. But Principal Robert Tomback, responding to a mother's complaint that the devil promoted satanic and anti-Christian beliefs, and after consulting with his supervisors, made the students dismantle their display early - though they had won the $50 prize for best decorations.

The best way to prevent people from smoking is keeping kids from starting. Why not just make the age to smoke 25? That way it would be illegal to smoke at least in public. Banning smoking indoors has really helped. I am so glad that if I go to a tavern for something to eat and drink that I don't have to endure smokers. That was one of the smartest things we've ever done. Now change the law and you won't have kids starting early. If you don't think it's necessary, just ride past Catonsville High at dismissal and see all the kids smoking when they leave the campus.

Yeager, a retired Catonsville educator and counselor who had been principal of Catonsville Evening High School and Catonsville Adult Center, died Sunday of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Columbia.

The steel drum sounds that filled the room at Catonsville High School were so infectious that students playing the instruments couldn't help but dance. Music teacher Jim Wharton, the cavorting leader of the impromptu jam session, was steadily beating a cowbell when he stared out a nearby window and spotted a truck driver looking in while reversing the vehicle. "Come on," Wharton beckoned, motioning the driver to pull over and join the troupe. Even though his calls went unheeded, the 62-year-old child at heart resumed getting his groove on, savoring the Caribbean flavor he helped introduce to Baltimore County schools more than 20 years ago. After teaching music in the county for nearly 40 years, Wharton is retiring.
