/TC Long before Hollywood brought its infamous rogue of the sea to life, 18th-century Colonial American artist John Singleton Copley painted his own captivating version of a terrifying shark attack.Copley's depiction of the rescue of a young cabin boy from shark-infested waters received high praise for its power and realism from the London press and public in 1778, and earned the artist a lasting reputation."Watson and the Shark" is now the centerpiece of an exhibit at the National Gallery of Art in Washington that looks at the story behind the work and how Copley created the masterpiece.

In what may be a prelude to the disposition of more than $400 million worth of commercial real estate, a joint venture between the Manekin Corp. and Copley Real Estate Advisors has sold a Germantown office building.Although the $8.5 million sale of the two-story project isn't expected to touch off an immediate wholesale liquidation of the Manekin/Copley portfolio, it foreshadows the coming wave involving the Boston-based pension fund adviser.As various Copley investment funds mature -- such as Treasury bills or bonds -- the company probably will sell various assets in those funds to generate returns for investors.

Pfc. Sandra Argueta-Copley can talk to abused Hispanic women in a way few officers can - she speaks their language. Copley, 29, has woven her Spanish-language skills with six years of policing experience and a personal interest in domestic violence issues to form a program aimed at lifting Hispanic women from abusive situations. Her initiative will be recognized tomorrow with a community service award, one of the top honors given by the Howard County Police Department. As a midnight-shift patrol officer and an on-call volunteer for the Domestic Violence Center, Copley said she passes out her home, work, cell phone and pager numbers to any woman she thinks might be a victim of abuse.

SEBASTIAN, Fla. - The cactus that had once towered 30 feet over Wayne Copley's yard now stood no taller than its owner yesterday afternoon. Mary Ann Copley's favorite live oak tree was toppled on its side. And the carport, well, it lay across the roof of the Copleys' mobile home in this town on Florida's east coast. Like thousands of coastal property owners, the Copleys' lives and home were thrown into chaos when Hurricane Frances' northern eye wall ripped through late Saturday night and yesterday morning.

Laster and his attorney, Rodney Warren, had asked for a suspended sentence that would allow him to attend a "spiritual-based treatment" facility in Los Angeles. But Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. said the attack on Dorothy Copley and Philip Atzert, her boyfriend, "calls out for punishment." Laster entered an Alford plea to one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault in September.

A 30-year-old Columbia man accused of using a brick-sized rock to beat a quadriplegic woman in her bed pleaded guilty yesterday to charges stemming from the attack and faces 30 years in prison. Kevin C. Laster entered an Alford plea to a charge of attempted second-degree murder and a guilty plea to a charge of first-degree assault as court officials assembled potential jurors for trial. An Alford plea, treated as a guilty plea, is not an admission of guilt but a concession that prosecutors could prove their case.
