Before BMX rider Jamie Bestwick could hop on his bike and spend time doing what he loves most, he had to go to work. Starting at 16, Bestwick spent 12 years working various jobs to earn his living. He was a ceramic tiler, then worked at a chocolate factory and then at an airplane engine repair company. Back then, BMX was just a hobby - a part-time job, at best - that he couldn't get off his mind. “Every day, I would go to work and I would work this job, but all I would sit there thinking about was riding my bike,” said Bestwick, who will compete today at the Dew Tour Beach Championships in Ocean City.

The Evidence Against Her, by Robb Forman Dew. Little Brown. 327 pages. $24.95. Those happy families, purportedly all alike, are simply very skilled at masking or repressing the unhappiness that lurks beneath the placid surface they present to the outside world. Robb Forman Dew, whose saga of small-town familial angst, Dale Loves Sophie to Death, won the 1995 National Book Award, illustrates the fragility and unacknowledged cost of one family's happiness in her new novel, The Evidence Against Her. In the small Ohio town of Washburn in the early 1900s, Agnes Claytor, the eldest daughter of a spectacularly unhappy family, struggles against the odds to achieve a happy family of her own. Her distracted, manic-depressive mother, Catherine, had been the belle of Natchez, Miss.

How much watering do I need to do after I put down grass seed? Once a day? Twice? Will dew keep it wet? Once grass seed absorbs water, it must stay wet until it germinates. If wet seed dries up, it is killed. So the aim of your watering is to keep the seed wet, and how much watering that requires depends several factors. Higher temperatures, low humidity, lack of cloud cover, breeziness and drought will all hasten evaporation and require you to water more frequently. A thin layer of an organic material, such as Leafgro or compost, will hold in some moisture.
