North Arundel Hospital has named Tracy Coker of Brooklyn Park as its nurse of the year. The selection is made from nominations submitted by the hospital's nursing staff. Each person named is asked to submit an essay and a manager's recommendation. In her essay, the hospital said, Coker told how she chose nursing as a career because she wanted to make a difference in someone's life "and show hope in the darkest of times." "I focus on my patients and make them my number-one priority each day," said Coker, a registered nurse who has been on the staff of North Arundel Hospital for 15 years.

LOS ANGELES - Ralph Friedgen is not the only former longtime assistant to have mastered the trick this season of becoming an overwhelming success in his first try as a head coach at a major-college program. Larry Coker took over at Miami last winter after Butch Davis left for the Cleveland Browns and several big-name coaches, including the Miami Dolphins' Dave Wannstedt and Barry Alvarez of Wisconsin, turned the Hurricanes down. Coker recalled a conversation he had with South Carolina coach Lou Holtz shortly after he had been promoted.

It's only Week 4 of the college football season, but apparently it takes only two losses to call a coach's job security into question. After losses to Florida State and Louisville - on the heels of a 9-3 season that ended with an embarrassing 40-3 loss to LSU - Miami coach Larry Coker found himself defending "Coach Coker" on this week's Atlantic Coast Conference teleconference. "I'm not going anywhere," he said. "I'm the football coach here. I'm very positive about that. Coach Coker's gotta do a better job."

Pollster Brad Coker told the county's Democratic Central Committee Monday night the party is in trouble and he has no "magic bullet" for 1994.Coker, who is credited with helping Republicans oust seven incumbent Democrats here Nov. 6, said the GOP victory was "evolutionary rather than revolutionary" -- something that has been coming for several years.The high cost of county housing -- about $200,000 or more for a detached home and $100,000 or more for a town house -- means that the only people who can afford to move into the county, Coker said, are "white-collar, upper middle-class professionals" who traditionally vote Republican.

Ever been on a large boat? Maybe a yacht? Space, no matter how large the floating mini-palace, is at a premium. Everything has its place, and it had better stay there.The same holds true for gardening in a small space, says Ann pTC Coker, a gardener who only recently learned to garden in small spaces.Coker spent years in homes with large yards. Plenty of room to garden.Then, after a divorce, she moved to a second-floor, 1,000-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath condo. Suddenly, her gardening space had been pruned to a 4-by-25-foot balcony with a buff-colored stucco wall on three sides.

Signs of the times The disappointment of some Miami fans was evident even before the game, when three different messages calling for the firing of both embattled coach Larry Coker and athletic director Paul Dee were flown over the stadium, amid advertisements for insurance and pizza. There was one pro-Coker banner: "Real Canes fans support Coach Coker." Notable Deon Butler set a Penn State record with 216 receiving yards. ... Tennessee's 41-7 victory was its first blowout against Memphis since 2001 and was the largest margin of victory since a 55-16 win in 1969.

Toward the end of Anne Tyler's novel The Clock Winder, you learn that the lead character's name has changed. She used to be Elizabeth, a tomboyish woman who made her living as "handyman" to a Roland Park widow. Now, all of a sudden, she's married and a mother. Her former boss started calling her "Gillespie" after suffering a stroke, and now everyone does. She is someone completely new. It may not always be this dramatic, but motherhood transforms. Formal holiday or no, each mother has her own personal Mother's Days -- the days when something happens, in her head or in her heart, that tells her she is treading on new ground.

Pollster Brad Coker was all smiles after the election. He had just "nailed" 30 Senate and gubernatorial races throughout the country.But what delighted the 31-year-old Columbia resident most, perhaps, is that two days earlier, he had predicted that Republican Charles I. Ecker would upset County Executive M. Elizabeth Bobo by 300 votes.Election night, Ecker won by 244. Absentee ballots still uncounted could change the outcome, but Coker doubted it. Those voters are usually "upscale" and tend to go "against the incumbent," he said.

IT TOOK JUST one upset, one titanic tumble from the top of the polls, one stampede of students toward the goal posts, to make the Atlantic Coast Conference realize that the sky is indeed the limit. OK. Two, actually. Two upsets, tumbles and stampedes, three hours apart in College Park, Md., and Chapel Hill, N.C., last Saturday night. The twin killings of Florida State and Miami, respectively, shook up the newly aligned, still-mutating conference nicely. Shook it up so well that even the honchos at the vanquished schools appreciated and admired what had happened.
