Craig "Speedy" Claxton and a streaking Hofstra basketball team were in town last night. But a suddenly slumping Towson squad didn't seem much interested in challenging Claxton and his teammates to a duel at the Towson Center. The result was a lopsided 84-70 victory for the Flying Dutchmen in an America East mismatch that was virtually over at halftime, thanks to a masterful first-half performance by Claxton, who ledthe visitors to a 53-31 lead. Towson has lost five of its past six games and Hofstra has won five of its past six. Claxton, a 5-foot-11 senior with NBA aspirations, played 15 minutes in the first half, scored 22 points and had seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Back on March 16, the University of Maryland's lacrosse team was in a tough physical battle against Towson.But no one took a heavier beating than Broadneck High graduate Andy Claxton.Claxton, the Terps' 5-foot-9, 175-pound faceoff specialist, was being bludgeoned by the stick of Towson's 6-2, 195-pound defenseman Steve Kisslinger, who shadowed him step for step."The next week, his body looked like he had been whipped," said eighth-year Maryland coach Dick Edell. "He had so many welts on his back that he couldn't practice faceoffs for the first part of the week."

If there had been one criticism of Michelle Wie's game this summer, it has been her inability to close. She shared the lead after three rounds at the U.S. Women's Open three weekends ago but shot a final-round 82. She was in position to make the cut at the PGA Tour's John Deere Classic last weekend but played the final four holes 3-over-par and missed the cut by two strokes. Wie, 15, closed the deal in another men's event yesterday. She did it theatrically, rolling in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th green to win her first-round match in the 80th U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Shaker Run Golf Club in Lebanon, Ohio, defeating Will Claxton, 1-up.

Chappelle. "She paved the path of how a lady should look when going out of the house," the Catonsville resident says.

A woman treated last year at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center filed a malpractice claim against the hospital yesterday, saying an intern had "negligently" cut an artery in her neck while trying to establish intravenous access. According to the lawsuit, Dezirea M. Claxton of Baltimore visited Bayview's emergency department Nov. 5 and was admitted for further tests and treatment. Several days later, two physicians examined the 49-year-old in her room and said they had to place a catheter in a vein in her neck because they couldn't use those in her arms.

At first glance, Deborah Claxton's work appears to be simpler than it is. Claxton, a Glenelg artist, has developed an innovative form of art known as "paper painting." Painstakingly cutting and attaching brightly colored pieces of paper onto a canvas, Claxton creates pictures that are striking and unusual. Using a magnifying lamp, Claxton attaches tiny pieces of colored paper that have been cut exactly to specifications. The large piece of acid-free watercolor board she uses as a canvas contains hundreds of numbers that correspond to the shape and color of the paper she must place there, initially giving it the appearance of a huge paint-by-number set. "People are just blown away because it is so unbelievably unique," said Kristine Woodward, owner of the Woodward Gallery in New York, which represents Claxton.
