Steve Marohl knew last year his single-season points record was bound to fall - and that someone with the last name Thompson was going to do it. And he's OK with that - and enjoying watching them play just like everyone else. As a lacrosse fan and someone still involved in the game, he's happy to see the impact brothers Lyle and Miles, and cousin Ty, are having on the sport he loves. "These guys are idolized by the younger kids; I see it with the kids I coach," he said Tuesday.

David Mrgich of Columbia isn't asking too much. All he wants is an objective financial adviser to review his modest portfolio and see whether it needs fine tuning. When Mrgich was younger, his father handled his investments. "The nice thing: I knew he had my best interests at heart," he says. Since then, Mrgich has been frustrated trying to find a trustworthy adviser outside the family. The 46-year-old state recycling coordinator earns around $74,000 a year and has built up a nest egg of about $100,000 — not enough to interest many financial professionals.

As a financial adviser for 35 years, I take issue with your editorial advising against reducing Maryland's estate tax ("Settling the estate tax," Jan. 17). Through the years, I have seen more and more of my clients take residence in Florida or other states with no such tax, and these are precisely the people one would want to keep in Maryland. They pay more than their share of income, sales and other taxes when residing here, versus nothing when elsewhere. The Sun suggests doing some estate planning, which is expensive and unnecessary.

" They are selling securities while capital gains tax rates are still low or transferring millions into trusts for the benefit of children and grandchildren before estate tax laws become more stringent. Others are getting out of the markets and parking money in less risky accounts. "Some people are going to get hit hard," said John Bacci, a financial planner in Linthicum, who has gone down his client list and run projections on what higher taxes would look like for them.

Walt Williams isn't one to shy away from a challenge. The former NBA veteran, after all, is perhaps best known for playing under the most trying circumstances in the history of Maryland basketball. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the Terps were in the midst of major NCAA sanctions after the death of forward Len Bias, Williams honored his commitment to his home-state school and starred under new coach Gary Williams. It was a decision that forever endeared Walt Williams to Maryland fans, one many believe helped save the program.
