Numbers, not necessarily performance, dictated the final roster cuts the Washington Redskins made yesterday. While fullback Nehemiah Broughton, safety Reed Doughty and offensive lineman Ikechuku Ndukwe made the 53-player roster despite some glaring mistakes in the preseason, wide receivers Jimmy Farris and Mike Espy were among the 21 released, in large part because of the position they play. Broughton survived despite watching a potential touchdown pass from Todd Collins slip off his fingertips in Thursday's 17-10 preseason loss to the Ravens.

ASHBURN, Va. -- When Jimmy Farris walks into FedEx Field for tonight's preseason finale against the Ravens, he will be thinking about only one thing: making the Washington Redskins' 53-player roster, which he failed to do last summer. "I'll never forget last season before the Baltimore game, I was talking to [James] Thrash in warm-ups, and I said to him, `You know this is the biggest game of my life,'" Farris said earlier this week. "I think I approach them like that. Every game is the biggest game of my career.

Jimmy Farris may have put the Washington Redskins coaching staff in a precarious position. Farris, a third-year player trying to make the Redskins as a wide receiver, stood out in Washington's 26-20 overtime loss to the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night. Farris registered team highs in receptions (four), yards (76) and touchdowns (two). Before that night, he had just two catches for 30 yards in the previous three preseason games. "I either made it a lot harder or a lot easier," said Farris, 27. "They were either feeling good about me and this solidified it or they kind of felt like, `Well, this guy's a long shot,' and I made it hard for them.

Kathleen `Kate' Farris urges her horse Image through the streets of her Glenelg neighborhood. He briefly startles at a bunch of pink balloons tied to a mailbox, but the movement barely disrupts the little Morgan's trot as he pulls Farris in a two-wheel cart. At stop signs, Image halts perfectly - vital obedience, because creeping or jigging forward could mean being struck by a car. It's all part of training for combined driving events, an equine sport that Kate Farris - and Image - love.

If you weren't in the jail, you didn't escape from it.Criminals sentenced to serve weekends who fail to arrive at the appointed hour on Friday cannot be convicted of escape because they were not in custody and state law does not address intermittent sentences, the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled yesterday.The decision reverses the escape conviction and six-month sentence last year of Floyd Dale Farris, who was a no-show at the Allegany County Detention Center on June 21, 1996.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A 16-year-old determined to witness Iraq's struggle for democracy firsthand secretly hopped a plane to the Middle East alone and eventually made it to Baghdad - frightening his parents and stunning officials who consider it one of the most dangerous places on Earth - before agreeing to return to Fort Lauderdale. The teen, American-born Farris Hassan, a junior at the exclusive Pine Crest School, is the youngest child of a physician. He and his father, Redha Hassan, who was born in Iraq, had been planning a trip to the country together this summer as an extension of a school project.

RICHMOND, Va. -- With less than two weeks to go in Virginia's race for governor, Democrat Mary Sue Terry, the state's attorney general, and Republican George F. Allen, a former congressman, can agree on one thing: Virginians want a change. And as a result of the state's one-term limit that is forcing incumbent Democrat L. Douglas Wilder to the sidelines, they're certain to get it. But how much change, and what kind, is the question.Because Democrats have occupied the governor's mansion here for the last 12 years, it's a very hard sell for Terry.
