THE QUESTION: WHO WILL DELIVER THE COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS FOR THE U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY ON MAY 27? President George W. Bush. By tradition, the president rotates his commencement speeches among the four service academies each year: the Naval Academy, West Point, the Air Force Academy and the Coast Guard Academy. Also rotating as graduation speakers at the academies are the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. There is no fixed pattern to the rotation, however, which is occasionally broken by other speakers.

One of Sandy Stosz's favorite childhood memories is of the trips her family took each summer from Ellicott City to her grandparents' home near Cape Cod, and the little rowboat that she and her three brothers were allowed to take out on the Great Bay when they were deemed old enough. "She always loved the water," Stosz's mother, Joy, recalled recently. "Those humble beginnings," as Stosz jokingly called them, led to her pursuing a career in the U.S. Coast Guard and her recent promotion to rear admiral lower half.

It was supposed to be Andrew Gavelek's first meeting as a voting member of the Howard County Board of Education.

"It was a light agenda." Gavelek, a 16-year-old rising senior at Reservoir High School, was aboard the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Shearwater, an 87-foot patrol boat, off the coast of North Carolina.

When the Coast Guard's tall ship Eagle glided under the Key Bridge on Wednesday morning, it looked a lot better than it did when it arrived at the Inner Harbor four months ago. A fresh coat of white paint covered the upper hull. Six miles of ropes and rigging were tightrope-taut. And from the ship's bow jutted a regilded eagle, its talons gripping the Coast Guard crest. "She's done and she's looking good," said John Downes, a Baltimore native who supervised the team of Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard workers that carried out the $5 million refurbishing, from keel to mast tip. Escorted by a Maryland Natural Resources Police boat and two tugs, the 295-foot ship turned down the Chesapeake Bay on its way to the Atlantic and its home port at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.

The Eagle never slips into port unnoticed. With video camera-toting parents, teary-eyed spouses and squealing children filling the Inner Harbor's brick walkway to greet the nearly 300-foot-long Coast Guard tall ship, Friday was no exception. "Oh my goodness, there it is," cried Sandy Palmer who flew from New Hampshire earlier in the day with her husband to surprise their daughter, an officer candidate aboard the ship. "This is a dream come true. When she said they were going to have liberty in Baltimore, you couldn't keep us away.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo inherited a potentially thankless assignment when he was hired to replace Paul Johnson, the architect of a dramatic change in fortune for a football program that had languished for decades before his appointment. Niumatalolo not only picked up where Johnson left off, but he has taken the program even further, defeating Notre Dame twice in his first three years as coach and winning the Commander in Chief's Trophy in two of those three seasons. What Niumatalolo does not do is promote himself.

It's no coincidence that the two most successful seasons in Frostburg State's football history followed the arrival of Rory McTigue, a guy the Bobcats had as much trouble getting into a uniform as opponents have had keeping out of the end zone.McTigue is a 6-foot, 195-pound fullback who will end up as the Bobcats' all-time leading rusher if he can maintain his current pace of 135 yards per game. He will be one of the headliners tomorrow (1:30 p.m.), when Frostburg State (2-1) travels to Salisbury State (1-1)
