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.

 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.

Four years ago, Kurt L. Schmoke ran for mayor of Baltimore as That Nice Young Man. Kurt, Kurt, you wanted to say. Loosen up! Undo your necktie! Call somebody a bad name!Instead, he campaigned on a platform of self-conscious politeness. And it nearly cost him his future.Everybody says it's going to be different this time around. They say he fought with his hands tied four years ago. The newspaper polls showed him running far ahead of Du Burns, but private polls showed him in trouble with elderly black voters who wanted reassurance.

The Washington Redskins signed wide receiver Tim McGee yesterday, but could be on the verge of losing defensive lineman Reggie White.After White, with the strong urging of his wife, Sara, virtually had decided to go to Washington, the talks between Redskins general manager Charley Casserly and White's agent, Jimmy Sexton, hit a major snag yesterday.Neither Casserly nor Sexton would comment, but a source close to White said, "It's Washington's game to lose and they may be losing it."The problem is something of a misunderstanding between the two sides.
