At the carryout he owned for about six years in South Baltimore, Nae Chun Pak served fried chicken and fish to legions of loyal customers. He made a good living, his friends said. So good that he wouldn't dream of leaving his store, a source of revenue that allowed for a comfortable life for him and his family in a Clarksville cul-de-sac. But his dreams of watching his three children grow up ended Monday night, when Pak, 46, was shot once in the head while standing behind the counter of his carryout, in what police and witnesses said was a dispute with a customer over a sub sandwich.

At 7 o'clock on the morning before his wedding, as the sun rose over the water, Colin Steven rowed on the Patapsco River to Fort McHenry. Rowing with him were three crew teammates from college and his cousin from Scotland. "It was excellent," says Colin, who has remained close friends with his teammates since they competed together at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Colin's bride, Therisa Chun, did not join him on the water, but she understood his desire to be there: The two met as freshmen on the UMBC crew team in 1993.

Brian Chun almost played professional soccer in Belgium this fall instead of center midfield for River Hill. In August, Chun tried out for a Division III team in Brussels and made the reserve team after playing with it for five days. But language problems would have meant a one-year delay in finishing his high school education, so he opted to return home. "I'm glad I came back because everything has been going well here," he said. River Hill is 12-1, county co-champion with Oakland Mills and ranked No. 3 by The Sun. And the senior co-captain has four goals and six assists.

It's often a symbol of a new life. A fresh start. A statement of independence.Thousands of people each year petition Maryland's circuit courts to change their names -- a simple request that is almost always legally unnecessary and almost always granted.Judges say state law gives them little leeway -- regardless of how outlandish the requested moniker may be. In Howard County, for example, a woman who is a patient in a mental institution recently changed her name from Susan to Lucifer. In another case, a man changed his name to Bill Clinton shortly after the 1992 presidential election.

HONG KONG -- From Asia, the accusations of influence-peddling at the White House look a bit different.The immediate reaction is often not outrage but surprise -- at the low U.S. prices.Corruption and gift-giving to curry favor are widespread in most Asian countries. And a few highly publicized scandals, including cases that involved former presidents of South Korea, have highlighted what is widely accepted here. The practice is entwined with building relationships and doing business, and the amounts are usually far greater than the sums that have sparked uproar in Washington.

About a year ago, a Cambridge food manufacturing plant closed and sent home 173 workers.Today, at the same Eastern Shore plant, state, local and business officials will gather to mark the return of the plant's former owner that has put to work almost as many people.Hunt-Wesson Inc. closed the plant, which made canned Chinese food under the Chun King name, last June. Nabisco, which had sold the Eastern Shore plant in 1989, repurchased it last August for a reported price of $1.3 million. It now employs 160 people -- 65 more than the company's original estimate.
