R. Alonzo "Lonz" Childress, a civil engineer whose career with the Baltimore County Department of Public Works spanned more than 40 years, died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital of complications from an infection. The Taneytown resident was 72. "Lonz was one of the most pragmatic and even-keeled persons that you'd ever meet. He was good at getting to the bottom of problems," said Brian L. Childress, a nephew who is a civil engineer with D.S. Thaler & Associates. "He always maintained a steady course and never got worked up. He could solve engineering problems without ever getting out of sync," said Mr. Childress, who lives in Perry Hall.

The iconic No. 3 may be back in the Sprint Cup starting lineup one day, a possibility that may send some NASCAR fans into an emotional tizzy. That number belonged to Dale Earnhardt , the late, great Intimidator on the NASCAR circuit. Would it be disrespectful for another driver to drive a car with that number? We may find out soon enough. Austin Dillon — the grandson of Richard Childress — already is set to drive a No. 3 Chevy in the Nationwide Series next season.

Playing for their playoff lives, Eli Manning and the New York Giants were efficient, focused and dominant. Playing for their new general manager, the Washington Redskins (4-10) did a good job of convincing the boss that maybe everyone ought to be fired. The Giants kept themselves in the postseason hunt Monday night with one of the most lopsided victories in the long, storied series against their NFC East rival. New York scored on six of its first seven possessions and controlled every facet of the game in a 45-12 win that wasn't as close as even that margin of victory would indicate.

There's an unexpected case of theatrical synergy going on in the region, with two productions that look squarely at issues of race, identity and self-esteem. At Everyman Theatre , you'll find a potent staging of Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun," which became in 1959 the first work by an African-American woman to reach Broadway. At Arena Stage , there's an absorbing revival of "Trouble in Mind," a play by Alice Childress that almost became the first work by an African-American woman to reach Broadway.

Clint Bowyer remains the best free agent in NASCAR. So where is he going? Sticking with Richard Childress Racing, or jumping over to Michael Waltrip's team? Stay tuned. Childress is hanging onto hope that Bowyer stays put. "Honestly, we're still trying," Childress said in Chicago over the weekend. "We both agreed if an opportunity comes for him, he needs to take it. But yes, we're still trying to put something together this week and last week. " Bowyer would be one of four or five drivers set to drive the No. 33 Chevy next season.

Kyle Busch has a problem. He has a problem with Kevin Harvick. He has a problem driving on city streets, going 83 mph faster than the posted speed limit. He has a problem keeping any sort of gentleman's decorum on the racetrack, assuming he has a free pass to play bumper cars with anybody who gets in his way. Busch is like a 2-year-old without adult supervision. His owner, Joe Gibbs, certainly isn't up to the task. And neither are folks like Brian France and Mike Helton from NASCAR, who have given Busch a "probation" for some of his antics.

Anybody have Paul Menard in their Chase for the Cup bracket this season? Anybody outside of his immediate family likely would be lying if they said they did. But look here: Menard is 11th after eight races, with two top-five finishes and three top-10s. Who could have expected this from a journeyman driver who bounced in and out of three teams before settling in at Richard Childress Racing as the team's fourth driver? He finished 12th Sunday at Talladega, complementing fifth-place runs at Bristol and Texas and a ninth at Daytona.

Clint Bowyer and Richard Childress Racing lost their final appeal Tuesday on the penalties, including a 150-point deduction, they received following their victory in the Chase opener at New Hampshire. NASCAR had voted 3-0 against RCR's initial appeal last week. Team owner Richard Childress insisted he had proof Bowyer's car was out of tolerance because of a push from a wrecker after running out of gas following the victory burnout. But that proved pointless. "After reviewing all the data, presentation and factors involved, I am ruling NASCAR was correct in its decision to levy penalties," said John Middlebrook, the National Stock Car Racing chief appellate officer who presided over the hearing.

Did you miss it amid the griping that Jimmie Johnson was back at it? Did the real change from last season to this one escape you? There they were, racing right up with Hendrick Motorsports - the three Richard Childress Racing cars that had all but disappeared from the NASCAR scene last season. Kevin Harvick finished second in Sunday's Auto Club 500, Jeff Burton third and Clint Bowyer eighth as Johnson won the race. But two races in, Harvick leads the points standings. The RCR teams mostly made news last season when something went wrong.

He may be 32, but Ricky Williams is far from done. And even without Ronnie Brown, the once written-off Miami Dolphins are back in the playoff picture. Williams rushed for 119 yards and scored three touchdowns, and the visiting Dolphins beat the Carolina Panthers, 24-17, on Thursday night for their fourth win in six games. A day after learning Brown is lost for the season, the Dolphins (5-5), who had lost their first three games of the season, continued their surge behind Williams.
