Alone, out on the water, Juri Jaanson could put all the who-am-I questions out of his mind.Perfection was all. How best to harness maybe 400 different muscles toward moving his boat directly onward, tearing the water, ripping it straight and fast? To get a purchase with the 3-meter oars and leave the eddies behind? To find the moment that takes him past mere effort?And perfection, at times, was his. Jaanson has been among the best. He was at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. He placed third in the 1989 single scull world championships in Yugoslavia.

My neighbor might be an endangered species. No, not a Democrat. A real, not-many-of-you-fellas-left critter in trouble. Smaller than a grain of white rice and just as colorless, Kenk's amphipod lives in small springs and seeps into my portion of Montgomery County known as Inside the Beltway. It looks like a shrimp, although "you'd probably have to eat all the ones in existence to make a meal," says Dan Feller, a Department of Natural Resources biologist who spends his time trying to find living things that almost aren't anymore.

Megan Bosica and Corey Donohoe score a lot of points for North Carolina's women's lacrosse team, but the former All-Metro Players of the Year could not be more different in their styles of play. Bosica, a senior from Mount Hebron, is a sneaky 5 feet 4, able to create on offense and run down opponents on defense. The midfielder with 23 goals makes her greatest contribution through her versatility, able to do a little bit of everything all over the field. Donohoe, a junior from North Harford, is a 5-foot-8 combination of power and finesse on the crease.

WASHINGTON - Some public beaches along the Potomac River in Maryland and Virginia are likely to be overrun with aquatic weeds, said Stuart Freudberg, director of environmental programs for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.And boaters could be aggravated this summer by strings of hydrilla winding around their propellers, he warned.Federal funds used to mow hydrilla were cut by President Clinton from the budget that went into effect Oct. 1.One of the worst consequences could be that property owners "would probably take matters into their own hands," Freudberg told the COG board.

WHERE ARE the wetlands? Which way does the river flow? Do we still hear the mockingbird? Every day in some part of Maryland, highway construction fills the air with dust, new malls disrupt quiet communities, industrial parks replace farmlands.This view becomes more alarming when we realize that the noise, traffic snarls and highway fumes will only overtake more of nature.We could continue to accept sprawling growth as developments settle over cool woodlands and highways crash through wetlands.

The photo tells all. Arms raised in triumph, body flush with joy, Orioles pitcher Mike Cuellar leaps off the mound at Memorial Stadium, having stuffed the Cincinnati Reds, 9-3, in the deciding fifth game of the 1970 World Series. "I can still see the look on Mike's face," third baseman Brooks Robinson recalled Friday. "His mouth was wide open, and he had a big, big smile." Miguel Angel Cuellar died Friday of stomach cancer at Orlando Regional Medical Center in Florida. He was 72. Of his 185 major league victories, none meant more than that World Series win to Cuellar, the Cuban-born left-hander who revived his flagging career in Baltimore - as well as the Orioles' fortunes.

Reservoir senior outside hitters Jamie Thomas and Rachel Burke have led the surprising Gators to an impressive run through the volleyball season. At the beginning of the season, a lot was not expected from Reservoir, which lost four seniors from a team that finished 10-5 and was eliminated in the regional semifinals last season. This year, the Gators, with their only loss to top-ranked Centennial, have galvanized the school. With each victory, Reservoir continues to climb up the rankings and show itself as a legitimate championship contender.

Duke's NCAA Division I men's lacrosse quarterfinal game was less than a quarter old, and Blue Devils attackman Matt Danowski was already making a statement. Twice he had blown by Cornell defenseman Kyle Georgalas for goals. Early in the second quarter, he leaped through two defenders, then faked out goalkeeper Matt McMonagle for another goal. By the end of the game, Danowski had scored five goals in Duke's 11-8 win. Georgalas offered no excuses. He got torched. The week before, Danowski scored five goals in a 23-4 tournament-opening victory over Fairfield.

LOS ANGELES -- Daryl Johnston doesn't mind being just another face in the Dallas Cowboys crowd."I enjoy being able to just go around and not really be recognized. When you see guys like Emmitt [Smith] and Michael [Irvin] and Troy [Aikman] and what they have to go through from the personal side just walking around town, it's very difficult. It's a lot tougher than people realize," he said.It's not a problem for Johnston because as the blocking back for the Cowboys, he rarely gets noticed.That changed a week ago when CBS announcer John Madden lauded him for his role in the 30-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC title game.

This topic was suggested by a letter from John Cog of Norfolk, Va. Here's the entire text:"How come when I'm standing in front of a full-length mirror with nothing on but socks, white socks look OK, but dark-colored socks make me look cheap and sleazy?"This letter was passed along to me by my Research Department, Judi Smith, who attached a yellow stick-on note that says: "This is true." Judi did not say how she happens to know it's true; apparently -- and I'm sure there's a perfectly innocent explanation -- she has seen John Cog of Norfolk, Va., wearing nothing but socks.

TILGHMAN ISLAND, winter, 1948: A local waterman, Bill Page, shoves his little skiff among the remains of an old dock, tonging oysters. A stranger onshore, famed Sun photographer A. Aubrey Bodine, motions Page to move a few yards and resume tonging. "Ain't no oysters there," Page replies. Humor me, Bodine says, and Page does. Perfectly composed, the shot becomes a bay classic. I'm told that Page, now deceased, thought it was a fine picture. But he also thought it important to tell people: "Where he had me, there weren't no oysters."
