After a week of silence following the massacre in Newtown, Conn., the National Rifle Association went on the attack Friday morning, insisting that mass killings are the fault of the media, politicians who pass laws banning firearms from schools, the government's refusal to assemble a database of the mentally ill, the president for eliminating funding for some school safety grants - the fault, in other words, of everybody but the NRA, and the fault of...

Broadneck has been forced to forfeit its Anne Arundel County girls swimming championship after it was discovered that an athlete violated rules by shaving on-site just prior to the county meet. School system officials learned of the Feb. 10 violation in the past week, according to a news release sent out Tuesday. They redistributed the points earned by the disqualified swimmer to the other participating teams, and as a result, Severna Park has been crowned the champion. Broadneck finishes third.

Including the girls' competition, the Cougars finished with 586 points to take the top spot in the combined race. Bel Air also finished second in combined scores (442)

INDIANAPOLIS -- It was just the kind of thing U.S. Swimming didn't need on the first day of its most prestigious event. Kristine Quance, one of the nation's best hopes for an Olympic swimming medal, was disqualified from the 400-meter individual medley yesterday for a minor technical violation and will not compete in her best event in Atlanta.Quance was far in front of the pack in her heat when she made a technical error in her transition from the backstroke to the breaststroke. She ended up with the best time in the morning preliminaries by four seconds -- and there was little reason to think she gained any significant advantage from the infraction -- but a turn judge disqualified her and buried the U.S. Olympic trials in another layer of unwanted controversy.

After his lip-hanging putt dropped into the cup on the 17th hole at Firestone Country Club during the opening round of last week's NEC World Series of Golf, Lee Janzen got a pat on the back from playing partner Vijay Singh, a roar from the crowd, a par on his scorecard and a lot of air time on the cable broadcast of the event.Too much time, as things turned out.Janzen, who had waited more than 20 seconds for the putt to drop, became the latest professional golfer to be turned in by the sport's rules police, a large and dogged group of weekend hackers who take great pleasure in protecting the laws of the game.

BARCELONA, Spain -- The duel was dramatic. The outcome, improbable.Before a whistling crowd that showered the track with paper cups and greeted the winner with thousands of thumbs pointed down, Morocco's Kahlid Skah out-sprinted Richard Chelimo of Kenya to finish first in the men's 10,000-meter final.And then, Skah lost, disqualified by a race jury that ruled he had received aid from a lapped runner, fellow Moroccan Hammou Boutayeb.The stunning decision, the first disqualification of that kind in 84 years, left Chelimo with the gold and the Moroccans filing an appeal that will be heard today.

The owner of King and Crusader, the Rick Dutrow-trained horse that was disqualified last week after winning the $75,000 Maryland Juvenile, has appealed and filed a protest with the Maryland Racing Commission. "All they wanted to do at the stewards' hearing was blame Dutrow and the [veterinarians]," James Riccio said in a phone interview Tuesday. "I've filed the appeal and a complaint because the horse should have been scrutinized before the race. They didn't vet him. I'm supposed to get protection, too. I'm not looking to send my horse all the way to Laurel and run him for no reason.

Maryland's horse racing stewards have disqualified the Rick Dutrow-trained King and Crusader and from the Maryland Juvenile Championship and fined Dutrow $500, upholding the protest filed by the connections of the second-, third- and fourth-place finishers in the Dec. 17 race at Laurel Park. According to Maryland regulations, a horse may not be treated for anything within two hours of post time, and the stewards found King and Crusader had been treated within an hour of the race by licensed private veterinarian Brian Delp.

Sarah Palin wasn't responsible for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords last weekend — not directly, not indirectly. She's not even responsible for the ugly rhetoric used by others on the right who try to turn ordinary policy debates into clashes between Americanism and socialism. She hasn't tried very hard to curb the excesses of her allies, and that's a serious failing, but it's far from unique. Still, the Arizona shootings and their aftermath will probably be remembered as the end of Ms. Palin's chances of being taken seriously as a Republican presidential candidate.

It has been a rough August on golf's rules and procedures front. For the third time this month, a harsh penalty has come down for a fairly innocuous mistake. Jim Furyk was booted from this week's opening FedEx Cup playoff event after missing Wednesday's pro-am tee time. A low cell phone battery caused the device's alarm to malfunction. "I'm beside myself," Furyk told a PGA Tour liaison, "but I have a way of climbing into stupid situations. " He's not alone. The dust hasn't completely settled from Dustin Johnson's two-stroke penalty at the PGA Championship for grounding his club in a bunker at No. 18, and Juli Inkster was disqualified from last week's LPGA stop for keeping loose mid-round by swinging a club with a weighted donut attached.

Despite all the buildup and anticipation on Capitol Hill leading to last week's confirmation hearings, the Senate Judiciary Committee's 15 hours of grilling Judge Sonia Sotomayor produced a week of tedium and polite reticence. The only fireworks were contained within the soliloquies of senators fervently expressing their own views of legal issues but rarely revealing the Supreme Court nominee's. If the advise and consent function of the Senate took a turn too far toward spectacle, partisanship and electronic inquisition with the nomination of Robert H. Bork two decades ago, it has turned into something altogether different - and perhaps just as problematic - for so many of the nominations since then.

An Anne Arundel Circuit Court judge yesterday threw out Laurel Park's attempt to revive its disqualified bid for a slots license, boosting the prospects for a mega-casino and entertainment complex proposed for Arundel Mills mall. In a 21-page opinion issued late yesterday, Judge William C. Mulford II concluded that Maryland officials were correct to disqualify Laurel Racing Association Inc.'s application for a casino because the now-bankrupt owners of the track failed to submit $28.5 million in required slots-application fees.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Whitney Metzler is living proof that there are two sides to every story.While the rest of the swimming world was commiserating with disqualified 400-meter individual medley finalist Kristine Quance, Whitney Metzler was in the pool yesterday afternoon at the Indiana University Natatorium, working between the preliminaries and the finals on her technique in the breaststroke.The extra effort paid off big-time. Metzler, a member of Murray Stephens' North Baltimore Aquatic Club contingent, made a strong comeback in the third leg of the medley to finish second behind the University of Florida's Allison Wagner and become a near-certain bet to compete in the Atlanta Olympics.

It ought to be a no-brainer that domestic violence and guns don't mix. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld that common-sense principle when it stripped anyone convicted of a crime of domestic violence of the right to own firearms. The decision should give a boost to two bills in the Maryland General Assembly that would allow judges more discretion to take weapons away from abusive partners who are subject to court-issued restraining orders. In the federal case, the justices ruled that a 1996 law that extended the federal ban on gun ownership by felons to anyone convicted of "a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence" applies even to states where domestic violence isn't a crime.

State officials threw out yesterday two of six recent proposals for slot-machine casinos at Laurel Park racetrack in Anne Arundel County and Rocky Gap State Park in Western Maryland. The decision increases the chances that a large casino will be built at Arundel Mills mall and opens the possibility of another round of bidding in Allegany County. Based on advice from the Maryland attorney general's office, the rejected bids were deemed incomplete because they did not include millions of dollars in legally required licensing fees.
