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.

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. This year, it will rank third, behind Montgomery County, which gained voters, and Baltimore County, which lost almost 5,000 voters, but still has 344,963 registered.

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.

 For more than 60 years with hardly a break, the Republican Partyhas chosen as its standard-bearer someone who has been able to claim it's his turn. Not since military hero Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, whose supporters so contended in 1952, has a conspicuous outsider run away with the prize. Patience nearly always has been rewarded for party stalwarts, whether it was Richard Nixon in 1960, Barry Goldwater in 1964, Nixon again in 1968, Gerald Ford in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, the senior George Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, the junior George Bushin 2000, John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012.

Like many college freshmen, James Bond expected to graduate from University of Maryland in four years. But then he decided to take on a double major, studying government and journalism. To do it in four years, he would have needed 17 or 18 credits a semester instead of the typical 12 to 15. He worried his grades would suffer, hurting his chances when he applies to law schools. Now he is in his fifth year. And Bond - whose less-frantic schedule gives him time to serve as president of the student body, work at Student Legal Aid and take upper-level Spanish classes, among other activities - doesn't mind at all. "I'm getting so much more out of the college experience," said Bond, 22, of Silver Spring, who is among the growing number of college students nationwide who, out of choice or necessity, are extending their stay on campuses beyond the traditional four years.
