The News . . . and some views:The baseball players want to control baseball -- totally, completely and without reservation. They don't want to allow the owners to make so much as a sou on their investments.But, wait, don't these guys control the game already? The owners go out and try to make themselves a few bucks with an All-Star Game or a World Series and the players quickly whisk most of the money away.The revamped Golden Rule -- he who has the gold rules -- would seem to apply here. The owners do the work, seeing to it that an avalanche of greenbacks comes flowing into the game, and the players command 56 percent of it in salaries and benefits.

Senior Ryan Cole of Pikesville came into yesterday's singles finals of the Baltimore County Region VI Tennis Championships with a resume worthy of any aspiring racket star.During his four-year stint as the Panthers' No. 1 player, he had won 45 of 46 regular-season matches, been ranked as high as sixth in state 18-and-under play and fared well in a handful of national tournaments.But it wasn't until he defeated Randallstown's Mike Steinberg, 6-1, 6-3, yesterday that Cole could add another title to that impressive list -- county champion.

HAMAR, Norway -- She saw the ice chips fly, saw her husband touch down with his hand, saw another gold medal slip away on a tight turn.Robin Jansen, dressed in black, could take no more. The crowd was still screaming, but she pivoted away even before her husband, Dan, crossed the finish line. She hugged her brother-in-law Jim. And then, she placed her baby into her mother's lap and headed for the exit."Why God? Why again?" she said. "God cannot be that cruel."Yesterday, six years to the day his sister died and he fell in grief, Dan Jansen, a haunted man, lost again.

She would never forget the call from Canada. On a day of grief and loss, she would always have this moment, this conversation with a son who was shaken and uncertain.Should he race?For him, mourning the death of a sister, the question was wrenching. For his mother, though, there could be only one answer. Jane had died, and there was nothing anyone could do, now.So, of course, she told her son to try.No one said anything about winning. This was the Olympics, wasn't it? This is what he had worked toward for four years.

Like you need help deciding what to watch tonight. There's only one show in town tonight -- and the town happens to be Hamar.* "The 1994 Winter Olympic Games" (8 p.m.-11:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 11) -- Hold on to the roof, because ratings for tonight's CBS Olympics coverage probably will go right through it. Two days ago, Nancy Kerrigan earned first place in the technical program. Yesterday morning, two of the other skaters in the top five collided during practice, adding a last-minute unexpected and unknown injury quotient into this already outrageous equation.

Bathed in theater lights and patriotic fervor, 84 freshly trained troopers let out a collective cheer yesterday as the Maryland State Police Academy graduated its first full class in three years.The graduation at Catonsville Community College ended six months of relentless training in marksmanship, police procedure, physical endurance and criminal law. Many called it the most demanding experience of their lives."I just got out of the military after seven years in the Army, but the training I received at the Maryland State Police Academy was much tougher," said Deneen Green, 29, of Baltimore, who recalled seemingly endless push-ups, sit-ups, swimming, boxing and other tests of physical skill.

The triumph of Dan Jansen is one of the most emotional Olympic stories in recent memory. This was practically a goof-proof story for CBS.Not that the network didn't try.OK, I can accept the waiting until after 10 p.m. to start. And Charles Kuralt's short piece was a nice setup.Then came the competition, and in relatively short order came Jansen. He set a world record in the 1,000-meter speed skating. At that moment, he wasn't assured of a medal, but it was an emotional moment for him and his family entourage, especially his wife.
