Imagine throwing out three runners in a single, sublime baseball moment.Now imagine a triple play while the ball, the runners, the bases and the stadium are all in outer space, each moving in its own peculiar orbit.That's pretty much what Robert Farquhar has promised for NASA's $154 million Comet Nucleus Tour (CONTOUR) mission, scheduled to visit three comets after a July 2002 launch.The effervescent mission designer at the Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Lab plans to rocket CONTOUR into a series of loops tens of millions of miles out in space, each with a snap-the-whip boost from Earth's gravity into the next loop.

The extent to which athletically based financial aid is offered by some members of Baltimore's private school league is the central issue of consideration in a proposed football merger between the Washington-based Interscholastic Athletic Conference and the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, according to IAC president Tom Farquhar. "The idea that there would be some scholarships based purely on a student's athletic ability is an approach that's different from the approach that we've taken," said Farquhar, who is head of Bullis School of Montgomery County in Potomac.

The director of NASA's $159 million Contour mission says there is no more than a "one in 10,000" chance that his team will recover the spacecraft, which went silent Aug. 15, six weeks into a four-year journey to study comets. Controllers at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory near Laurel lost contact with the spacecraft soon after it fired its solid-fuel motor last week to rocket out of Earth orbit toward an encounter with Comet Encke planned for next year. Misson Director Robert W. Farquhar said the spacecraft's motor apparently worked perfectly for 48 seconds of the planned 50-second burn.

When Cindy Olsen was in her 30s and single, she thought she just wasn't going to get married. Brooke Farquhar, a bachelor at 40, also "wrote off" the idea of finding a spouse. Both were happy with their careers, close families and great friends, and Brooke says, "I'd rather not have [a marriage] than settle." Then, in July 2001, the two met while Cindy, an assistant interior decorator, and Brooke, who installs home theaters and other equipment with Starr Systems Design, were working on the same condominium in Cross Keys.

IT WAS TO BE a week of fun and learning in Wyoming for 55 Montgomery County pupils. It turned into a 1,765-mile bus trip through the American heartland. The youngsters, seventh- and eighth-graders at William H. Farquhar Middle School in Olney, were part of an exchange program with the lone middle school in Douglas, a southeast Wyoming cattle town rich in Western lore. The Farquhar kids and their six chaperones flew west Sept. 9 and settled in with host families. They were to tour Yellowstone National Park and other attractions, but there was learning involved.

NEAR is alive. The plucky little Maryland-built spacecraft that has been orbiting the asteroid Eros for the past year was supposed to have expired Monday on a kamikaze photography mission to the asteroid's surface. But against the odds, it has survived its impact with the surface. And it has called home. "Not only did the spacecraft survive, it's remained intact. We are still in communication with it," Jay Bergstrahl, NASA's acting director for solar system exploration, said yesterday.

LOS ANGELES -- Was it only 10 months ago that UPN was being denounced by African-American groups over its then-new sitcom, "The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfieffer"?Talk about turnaround. The network is now the home of some of the best black talent in Hollywood and proud of it.UPN yesterday showcased its African-American programming for television critics gathered here for the summer press tour, and it was an impressive sight.After the NAACP threat to sue the four major networks over the fact that none of their 27 new fall series will have a leading character who is black, it was a chance to hear what black actors, writers and producers have to say about the sociology of the images they create.
