ORLANDO, Fla. - At times, he looks like the player whose style, a mix of grace and power, drew realistic comparisons to Michael Jordan. At times, he looks like a cheap replica, trying to chip away the layers of rust that accumulated over the past four years. Grant Hill is 32, no longer the young deer he was at Duke or the dazzling star he became during his six seasons with the Detroit Pistons, a two-time first-team and four-time second-team All-NBA player. He is also, at least on first glance, not the oft-injured athlete whose career appeared to be over.

Indianapolis Colts receiver Brandon Stokley's career has ele- vated since he left the Ravens after the 2002 season, a fact most directly attributed to his health. Though questionable for tomorrow's game against the Ravens with a groin injury, Stokley has yet to miss one this season. He has 58 catches for 936 yards and nine touchdowns, all career highs. Those numbers though, have not gone to his head. Always one of the most humble players through his first four seasons with the Ravens, Stokley passed at the chance to take a swipe against his former team.

One popular theory of lawyer Marilyn Mosby's upset win over incumbent State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein was that race played a deciding role in the election, helping a political newcomer oust a white prosecutor in a majority-black city. But Baltimore residents voted less along racial lines than they did four years ago when Bernstein knocked off veteran top city prosecutor Patricia Jessamy with overwhelming support in white neighborhoods, a Baltimore Sun analysis shows. An analysis of census data and precinct-by-precinct election results shows that Bernstein's support eroded in South, Southeast and North Baltimore - which contain the heavy-voting, majority-white neighborhoods of Federal Hill, Canton and Roland Park, respectively.

Agents routinely are guilty of hyperbole, but Mike Mussina's agent is right when he says the right-hander has better statistics than do John Smoltz and Alex Fernandez. If he stays healthy and has a reasonably good 1997 season, Mussina would get more as a free agent than either Smoltz (four years, $31 million) or Fernandez (five years, $35 million).According to league sources, Mussina's agent, Arn Tellem, is asking for a five-year contract worth $7 million to $7.5 million a year.You know what?

The largest loss was in Baltimore, where 321,142 people are registered, compared with 393,737 in 1986.Four years ago, Baltimore had the highest number of registered voters of any of the state's 24 local jurisdictions.

“Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,”  or so the 1970s country song advised. But today, the recommendation could be not to let your children grow up to journalists, marriage therapists or vets. Strictly speaking finances, those are a few careers that have a low “return on investment,” according to Bankrate.com. In other words, given the amount a student would have to borrow to get a degree in those fields compared to the potential salary, the return isn't much.

There are only five great NFL running backs now -- the Detroit Lions' Barry Sanders, the Dallas Cowboys' Emmitt Smith, the Buffalo Bills' Thurman Thomas, the Pittsburgh Steelers' Barry Foster and the New York Giants' Rodney Hampton.The San Francisco 49ers' Ricky Watters thinks he's great. Los Angeles Rams rookie Jerome Bettis has a chance to be. Phoenix Cardinals rookie Garrison Hearst has shown nothing yet.Great running backs are as scarce as great quarterbacks. Just when the supply looks plentiful, the demand on their bodies wears them out. Check their ages.
