For a few hours yesterday, they left most of their worries at the dock. The widows grieving husbands and the children mourning parents and siblings found relief in the sparkling waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the tug on a fishing line. Shrieks of laughter and palms slapping congratulatory high fives provided the soundtrack for the sixth annual Joe Judge Fishing Derby, a two-hour excursion aboard the Old Bay for 11 children and some of their parents and volunteers. And the fish - particularly the striped bass - played their part to perfection.

WITH BRUSHES AND pencils in hand, Christine Wenderoth of Hampstead visits children at home to inspire art. "These are customized lessons, according to the child's interest," said Wenderoth, a professional artist who has exhibited in Lancaster, Pa., and California. "Customizing means indirectly teaching," she added. "If they're painting, I teach color theory. In a dragon drawing, we're talking about hatch lines. It's not a sequential thing, and the kids are more willing to try things. We're more free.

The Postal Service dedicated a stamp to his most famous creation and federal health officials slapped his initials on a strain of anthrax that almost killed him. Now it's time for Maryland to put Lefty Kreh's name on something that matters. Kreh turns 86 next month and wouldn't that be a fine time to get moving on a tribute to the Maryland native and World War II veteran who has done so much to promote fishing? Normally, the state gets all squirrelly about naming something for a living person — except if that person happens to be an ex-governor (Glendening)

Humidity wrapped the Bay Bridge in a gauzy film Thursday morning as Capt. Steve Dunn throttled up and nosed his charter boat beyond Queen Anne's Colony Marina on Kent Island and into deeper water. Within 15 minutes, Jesse Girl was scooting across the Chesapeake, its bow pointed at the State House dome. A slight turn to port and the boat settled onto Tolly Bar, a nice piece of fishing real estate this time of year. Then 11 rods went over the side as another Joe and Donna Judge Fishing Derby began.

It was always about the kids. Did they have enough bait? Were they getting enough to eat and drink? Was everyone wearing sunscreen? Could you hear laughter? Donna Judge fussed like a mother hen each time she presided over the Joe Judge Fishing Derby, a day on the Chesapeake Bay for children and parents grieving the loss of a family member. The quiet little ones -- the tough customers -- got her undivided attention. She had one day on the water each year to make a difference for those kids, and she worked it like it was her last.
