Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

LOS ANGELES - One is a cop drama, and the other a medical story. But, if you loved "Homicide: Life on the Street," there's a lot you'll like in the new ABC series, "Gideon's Crossing." The medical drama, which debuts this fall, was created by Paul Attanasio, who also adapted David Simon's non-fiction book, "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets" to television by writing the pilot. One of the new show's co- executive producers is Eric Overmyer, a key writer and producer for "Homicide." And just as "Homicide" was based on a non-fiction book, so is "Gideon's Crossing."

A law professor who is teaching Maryland's public defenders to better serve their poor clients amid "crushing" caseloads is among the winners of this year's MacArthur Foundation "genius" grants. As founder of the Atlanta-based organization Gideon's Promise, Jonathan Rapping works to train public defenders and help reform what he considers civil rights abuses in the criminal justice system. He arrived in Baltimore in May for a year-long stint at the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, his first attempt at changing a statewide system.

They did it. I didn't think they could. But by the end of tonight's premiere of "Gideon's Crossing," creator Paul Attanasio and star Andre Braugher made me forget Frank Pembleton, the landmark detective Attanasio invented and Braugher played on "Homicide: Life on the Street." I believe in Braugher's new character, Dr. Ben Gideon, chief of experimental medicine at a prestigious teaching hospital in Boston and last hope for the most critical of the critically ill. I don't know if I believe in the future of the series yet - it's opposite NBC's "Law & Order" in its regular time slot Wednesday nights at 10. But, if you are a fan of Braugher's work in "Homicide" and you crave quality drama, this is a pilot you do not want to miss.

Editor's note: When a baby apatosaurus taps on his bedroom window, Wilbur decides he must lead his new friend, Gideon, home to his family in the Jurassic period.It was not long before Wilbur and Gideon left the Ice Age far behind. Brightly colored birds sang and huge black butterflies fluttered overhead. The day was growing hotter as they climbed higher into the mountains. "We've been walking for hours," he said, "and we haven't found anything yet. This must be the wrong way." He was almost ready to turn back when a tiny horse-like animal scampered up the mountainside in front of him. "Look, Gideon," he cried, "a Mesohippus from fifty million years ago!

That's how Deborah Knott, North Carolina's newest district court judge, wound up spending a hot and sweaty Saturday helping an all-woman crew construct a house for an impoverished single mother and her two kids.

Last Monday, the United States celebrated the 50th anniversary of the seminal Supreme Court case of Gideon v. Wainwright. The next day saw the Maryland Senate vote to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana. There is a synchronicity here. The failure of one public policy poses a problem, the other a brilliant solution - if the Maryland House of Delegates will but take up the mantle of common sensibility and fiscal restraint. For decades, Maryland's heavy penalization of marijuana possession has cost the state millions of dollars in incarceration and court costs and contributed to excessive public defender caseloads without improving public safety or meaningfully reducing drug use. The public policy behind Gideon is the constitutional guarantee that everyone charged with a crime, no matter how poor, must have a lawyer.

STRUGGLING TO retain custody of her 3-year-old son, Michael, Deborah Frase became her own lawyer in January 2002. With the formidable energy of a desperate mother, she held onto her son -- for the moment. The court imposed conditions that seem inappropriately intrusive and worse. She might still lose custody of the child if the conditions are violated. Circumstances that might have produced a more favorable outcome were not introduced by Ms. Frase, who did not know how to introduce them.

There are a number of things wrong with ''To Sleep With Anger,'' but there are a number of good things about it, enough to encourage us to overlook the bad.The direction is unsteady, and the script is not that precise, but the acting is admirable, and it is most refreshing to see a film in which black people are simply people, living rather ordinary lives in a rather ordinary part of town. It is doubly refreshing to see that a film about blacks can steer far away from movie stereotypes.And no one overacts.
