When Jamal Cannady of Sharptown reflects on his time at summer camp, his voice warms with the onrush of happy memories and enthusiasm. Ziplining, swimming, boating — he does it all. "Things I never did before in life I get to do at camp. I like to go out on a canoe ride, go in the pool, go camping, go on a nature walk, sing songs and we do a lot of things in the woods," he said. Cannady, 32, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Since he was 2, he has spent part of his summer at Easter Seals' Camp Fairlee, a camp established to give children and adults with a spectrum of disabilities the opportunity to experience everything offered at a typical summer camp.

In response to Katherine Ambrose's complaints about the timing of The Sun's coverage of the MICA exhibit on Baltimore burlesque ( "Was Easter the right time for a two-age spread on burlesque in The Sun?" April 22), I suppose the paper should also refrain from reporting about murders and rape on religious holidays as well. Or anything this dear lady might find distasteful? Oh, I forgot. Murder and mayhem is fine but a woman's breasts are unacceptable! Who will think of the children?

James Easterly might not qualify as a larger-than-life figure yet. But, since he and Wilde Lake football coach Doug DuVall met two summers ago, the 6-foot-5, 290-pound Easterly has occupied more than a hugechunk of ground on the line of scrimmage.He owns places in DuVall's heart and the coach's personal football history book."He (Easterly) is one of the two or three best linemen ever to come out of the county," DuVall says. "He's a real sincere, honest kid,a decent person, a hard-worker. He's the consummate lineman, a natural offensive lineman.

Wilde Lake football coach Doug DuVall said something about his team three months ago that, in hindsight, served as a preview for an unforgettable season.Minutes after the Wildecats had turned back a stubborn, physical South Carroll team with a three-touchdown, fourth-quarter rally to win, 28-7, DuVall talked about a special chemistry he sensed among his players."I can see it in their eyes. These kids are scared to lose, scared to not play well," DuVall said. "It shows in the way they listen to us. When we walk into the locker room and have something to say, it gets so quiet you can hear a pin drop.

Atholton running back Matt Winger had experienced both his school's first playoff berth in 20 years and its initial playoff win primarily because of his school-record rushing totals. Last night, Winger experienced another first in a Class 2A South final loss to visiting defending state champion Potomac: A zero on his team's side of the scoreboard. Winger was held to a season-low 26 yards in a 12-0 shutout defeat. And as a defensive back, neither he nor a Raiders defense that included Jeff Easterly (one sack)

On Sunday morning, as Christians in the region and around the world take part in the Easter traditions they enjoy, an observer might be tempted to ask: How do the ways they celebrate the holiday reflect its meaning? Children pet bunnies and gobble jelly beans. Wal-Mart sells more than 500 types of Easter confection, including unicorn- and space alien-themed baskets. Just a few of them allude to Christianity. How does eating a package of Peeps recall the man Christians believe redeemed the world by rising from the dead nearly 2,000 years ago?

For many Christians, Easter morning is a time when churchgoers flock to their places of worship to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. One church in Timonium, however, is sending its parishioners away — specifically, 3 miles south along York Road to Towson University's SECU Arena. "It's our first time being at SECU Arena, and we are very excited. Our ministry teams, from 7 years old and up, are very excited to serve [Easter] Sunday," said Kellie Caddick, matter conference coordinator at Church of the Nativity.

I was standing in line in a store recently when I heard this phrase over and over again on a closed circuit television, "Get more Easter for your dollar. " It struck me that this national chain apparently knows nothing of what Easter is. Easter is not for sale in any store. Easter is not a commodity that one buys. Easter is not something that one brings home in a shopping bag. Easter is the celebration of that glorious day when the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave and left His tomb empty to show His power over sin, death, Satan and the grave.

The Anne Arundel County school system will need to make up two school days missed this year to inclement weather after receiving a waiver from the state Department of Education on Wednesday. The school system had built four inclement weather days into its state-mandated 180-day school calendar, but used five additional days during an unseasonably cold and protracted winter. It was among several counties statewide that requested waivers from the state from the mandated calendar. The school system initially asked to have all five days forgiven, but last week state Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery denied that request.

Teresa Hicks' career in the Navy stretches back 24 years, with assignments on land and sea, and deployments around the world as both an enlisted sailor and an officer. Fresh out of the military, Hicks now is navigating a sea of a different sort: the civilian job market. And that has meant translating the military jobs she once held, such as "damage controlman," into titles such as "shipboard firefighter," that private employers can more readily understand. Today's job market is challenging, but particularly so for veterans whose experience isn't always clear to the companies that might hire them, Hicks said.

He was an All-Metro selection last fall for the Falcons, who went 11-1 and finished fourth in The Baltimore Sun's top 20.But Hopkins also is a fast-improving basketball player who has impressed scouts with his quickness, versatility and scoring ability.

A moment as mysterious as the sacred idea it celebrates - the crucified Christ's decent into Hades before his resurrection - arrived Saturday morning at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in a cascade of rose petals and a cacophony of bells, hands drumming on wood pews and a church elder chanting in his ancestral tongue. It was a rich, even raucous moment affirming belief in Christ's conquest of evil and heralding the arrival of the church's most significant holiday. This year, the Eastern Orthodox Church - the faith of an estimated 300 million people from the United States through Eastern Europe and the Middle East - celebrates Easter a month after the Western Christian observance, capping 40 days of fasting and a week of services marking different stages of the paschal narrative.
