MEMO TO the committee that will choose members of that proposed Howard County Sports Hall of Fame: Just a note to give y'all an example of a problem you'll face, deciding who's made a lasting impact on sports in this county. Arlene Dinneen's name isn't likely to leap into everyone's mind as one of the greatest athletes in county history. She hasn't won an Olympic medal or been a pro or even that much of a standout in her sport, running, even though she can document having covered more than 20,000 miles during her 61 years.

FAME, AS you know, is often described as being a fleeting thing. That may be true for most areas of life, but you'd have to exempt sports, which has a proliferation of halls of fame devoted to outstanding performers. You can find sports halls of fame defined by high schools, colleges, the pros, by gender, by state, by nationality and within individual sports. Now, the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks wants to join in. The rec department has a proposal circulating for a Howard County Sports Hall of Fame.

So what else is new?It has amazed me all the years I've been in this business how South County, and I'm talking from Annapolis below, rarely responds or even acts as if it wants to be a part of anything that occurs in this county.The annual Anne Arundel County Sun Academic-Athletic team honors the top student-athletes and is open to everyone in the county, but we get little or no response from the southern schools, Southern and South River.
