HAMPSTEAD -- Imagine playing golf without clubs, using a much bigger ball and, obviously, much bigger holes.You'll be able to do just that, possibly as soon as next spring, when the Four Seasons Sports Complex and Fitness Center opens a 20-acre, 18-hole soccer golf course. That's right, a soccer golf course.Soccer golf is basically the same as regular golf, minus the clubs and the small, dimpled balls. Instead, legs and feet are used along with soccer balls. The course will feature par-3 to par-5 holes.

The comments from Rich Shannahan that you ran on November 16, "Excluding Bay Foundation is outrageous" were outrageously inaccurate. K. Hovnanian Homes played no role whatsoever in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation being excluded as a sponsor of the Bay Run by race organizers. We learned about the issue when it was reported in The Sun. K. Hovnanian would never object to any organization participating in a fundraising event that supports the bay, even if it opposes our Four Seasons community.

Zach Wendal, Andrew Benicewicz and Scott Bissett ventured into the unknown as freshmen, trying out for a Mount Hebron wrestling team that had won one match in the previous four seasons. And they didn't exactly take to the sport like ducks to water. "I had never tried wrestling, had no idea what it was," Bissett said. "I remember I couldn't even do a half-nelson. For about a month or two months, I was like, `How do you do this?' " Wendal didn't fare much better: "I wasn't good at sprawling or shooting takedowns.

"I've been told that something like this happens in New York every 50 years, and I tend to believe it," says hotel manager Thomas Gurtner.

Justin Tucker's proposal to his longtime girlfriend Amanda Bass had it all: a stunning view of the Inner Harbor, a performance by famous musicians and a runway flanked by scores of flickering candles. Add in shiny good looks of the Ravens kicker and the soon-to-be Mrs. Tucker, and the photos captured by team photographer Shawn Hubbard look as though they could be stills from a season finale of "The Bachelor. " The couple was finishing dinner at Wit and Wisdom at the Four Seasons Hotel in Harbor East on Nov. 1 when Tucker slipped away, saying he needed to visit the restroom, according to The Caw blog on Ravens.com.

Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley spent four seasons with quarterback Peyton Manning in Indianapolis and the two reunited last year for one season in Denver. Like Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and tight end Dallas Clark , Stokley has great familiarity with Manning. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that he feels comfortable this week giving Ravens teammates advice on how to defend the 12-time Pro Bowl quarterback. Frankly, he just doesn't know how much good that would do. “That's the hard thing with Peyton.

After a marathon hearing on a proposed 1,079-unit housing development on Kent Island, the state Board of Public Works decided Wednesday to delay a decision for at least a month while Queen Anne's County officials seek assurances that the company will keep its commitments. Led by Gov. Martin O'Malley, the board agreed not to vote on a permit to allow developer K. Hovnanian to install a sewer line and build a pier for its Four Seasons project until the company puts its promises to reduce the impact of the construction in writing.

The Four Seasons at Kent Island may be viewed as many things, but surely one of them is a reality check for all the complaints of state government usurping control over land use decisions from local government (not mention all the harping on Maryland as an anti-growth state or a developer's worst nightmare). On Wednesday, the state Board of Public Works will once again take up the topic of the Four Seasons, a project that in 2007 came to symbolize the lack of teeth in Maryland's efforts to protect the Chesapeake Bay from excess development in the "critical" areas near the bay and its tidal tributaries.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan women's basketball coach Cheryl Burnett retired yesterday, ending a lackluster stint with the Wolverines after helping Southwest Missouri State become a power. Burnett was 35-83 overall and 10-54 in the Big Ten over four seasons at Michigan. The Wolverines were 10-20 overall and 3-13 in the conference last season, finishing 10th. Michigan's best year under Burnett was its first, when the team was 14-17 during the 2003-04 season. She was 319-136 and coached in 10 NCAA tournaments before she was hired at Michigan.

In the past few years, pastry crazes have managed to bring out the sweet tooth in just about everybody. Perhaps the fads are owed to the emergence of reality shows such as "D.C. Cupcakes," "The Cupcake Girls," "Cupcake Wars," .... and you get the idea. Whatever the origin, the burgeoning popularity of pastries has been fueled by creativity. The question is no longer what can you put on a pastry, but what can't you use to accentuate a baked treat. Now, with a doughnut craze in full swing, we're once again left trying to solve this delicious dilemma, as we stuff our faces with the glazed rings.

A second straight winter of unnaturally warm weather so far in Central Maryland is extending the life of a handful of crops at one Howard County farm and forcing a rite of spring to occur early. Only last week on the rolling pastures of Sharp's at Waterford Farm in Brookeville, lambs cavorted near their mothers. Ears of viable popcorn lay scattered amid flattened, yellowed cornstalks. Nearby, brussels sprouts remained ripe for the picking. Still, even in the mildest of these colder months, farm-fresh foods remain scarce.
