Gilchrist Hospice Care, the largest provider of hospice services in the state, said Wednesday it has partnered with Joseph Richey Hospice, which operates the only free-standing residential facility in Baltimore City. Details of the arrangement were not disclosed by the two non-profits, but officials said Joseph Richey will now fall under the Gilchrist umbrella. Joseph Richey provides care to terminally ill patients in underserved communities, and Gilchrist's leadership expected the partnership to enhance care.

An Alzheimer's patient is rushed to the emergency room, where her relatives tell doctors she has swallowed food down the wrong passageway. They insert tubes so she can take in air and fluids. She survives the crisis. But the visit is so invasive that it worsens her other chronic conditions. Months later, she dies in an exhausted state. It's a painful way to end a life, but Dr. Anthony Riley says it's one he sees all too often - and one patients and families can avoid if they plan carefully.

The news that the NCAA is allowing Maryland transfer Gus Gilchrist to play basketball at South Florida beginning in mid-December came as a big surprise to Maryland senior associate athletic director Kathy Worthington. In an interview yesterday afternoon, Worthington said she spoke with an official at the NCAA yesterday and "they are not holding Gus accountable for the ACC sit-out rule. ... I think they are taking a very liberal interpretation of that rule." ( For more, go to baltimoresun.

Early autumn and the icons of our besieged literary culture appear with fiction of the highest quality. The sublime Ellen Gilchrist offers her new collection "Flights of Angels" (Little Brown, 325 pages, $24), every story a gem. Gilchrist can bring you to tears on a dime: see "While We Waited for You to Be Born." Humor abides. So we hear from the mother of three teen-age boys: "I knew wild. I was born wild and I was still wild so they couldn't fool me, except that they were fooling me and would keep on doing it."

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland freshman forward James Gist is likely out and junior point guard John Gilchrist is questionable for the National Invitation Tournament opener tonight against Oral Roberts at Comcast Center, Terrapins coach Gary Williams said yesterday. Gist bruised his left knee while diving for a loose ball in practice March 7 and did not play in the Terps' Atlantic Coast Conference tournament game against Clemson on Thursday. Gilchrist sprained his left ankle late in the first half against Clemson and played less than three minutes in the second half.

DENVER -- Texas-El Paso forward Omar Thomas had just made two free throws with about three minutes remaining in the game to give the Miners their first lead of the second half. The crowd smelled upset, and the Terps became tense. And then Maryland point guard John Gilchrist took the ball and the rest was history. Final score: Maryland 86, UTEP 83. Nearly one week after carrying Maryland to its first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title since 1984, Gilchrist again pulled the Terps through crunch time in an opening-round NCAA tournament game at Pepsi Center.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Woody, who doesn't have a college degree, was hired as the men's basketball team's video and conditioning assistant.

Within months after leaving Maryland as a junior in the spring of 2005, John Gilchrist realized he had made a mistake. Sitting in his apartment in Rishon LeZion, a coastal town in Israel where he had begun what would become a nomadic professional basketball career, Gilchrist wrote an email apologizing to his former coach, Gary Williams, and to former Terps assistant Dave Dickerson, by then the head coach at Tulane. "I just basically poured my guts out to them," Gilchrist recalled on a trip back to College Park last month.

Two decades ago, a long-term patient at Greater Baltimore Medical Center was astonished at the quality of care he was getting. His principal nurse wasn't just cheerful and knowledgeable. She also seemed to be taking care of him day and night. Then he realized his caregiver was not one person, but two: Tina Maggio and Gina Ranieri, identical twins who were taking their shifts back-to-back, just as they've shared nearly everything important in their lives. "He thought we were some kind of super-nurse," Tina said in the pair's office at Gilchrist Center, the acute-care hospice they've served for 16 years.

Gilchrist Hospice Care raised more than $218,000 to help pay for uncompensated care at its 27th annual Taste & Auction of Howard County.

Nearly 500 people attended the event Sunday at Turf Valley that featured food tastings from 23 Howard County restaurants that included Aida Bistro, Clyde's of Columbia and Tersiguel's. There also was a live auction and a silent auction for such items as gourmet wines, gift baskets, Ravens tickets and a trip to Hawaii.

The Washington Wizards insist they aren't wedded to any prospect for the third overall pick, and they remain at the mercy of what the Charlotte Bobcats decide to do ahead of them - whether it's take Kansas junior and Washington native Thomas Robinson or trade down to let another team possibly grab Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal. But the Wizards have three players they are strongly considering: the unassuming and sharpshooting Beal; the polished perimeter scorer Harrison Barnes of North Carolina; and the defensive-minded and grittyMichael Kidd-Gilchrist of Kentucky.

Listening to Mark Turgeon and Terrell Stoglin talk when the season began, you didn't know which would happen first -- the new coach sending the sophomore point guard packing or the sophomore point guard doing his best imitation of a Maryland football player by getting out of College Park as soon as the season was over. There are still several months left for Turgeon and Stoglin to either co-exist or kill each other, at least figuratively speaking. But what we have witnessed the past few weeks could have a rather significant impact on what kind of season the Terps have, and whether or not Stoglin follows the path of John Gilchrist or Greivis Vasquez.

COLLEGE PARK - North Carolina point guard Raymond Felton played well. He got the ball inside to center Sean May. He ran the fast break to near perfection in the first half. He hit some key shots and lived up to all the preseason hype. There was only one problem. Maryland point guard John Gilchrist was just as good, if not better, in a prelude to matchups in a conference dominated by good point guards. In a contest in which he had to turn up his game a notch, Gilchrist succeeded last night in Maryland's 90-84 upset of No. 9 North Carolina before nearly 18,000 at Comcast Center.

THINK OF THE players who've left College Park for greener pastures in recent years and think about the fanfare that accompanied their imminent departures, some early, some after four seasons. Joe Smith. Steve Francis. Lonny Baxter. Steve Blake. Juan Dixon. We love you. You were great. We understand the future is out there, so go, but we'll miss you. You'll always be a Terrapin. Now look for John Gilchrist. He's the junior point guard in street clothes, hoisting a three-pointer during Comcast Center warm-ups after saying he'd be ready to play by now, but he's not, not according to Gary Williams.

Construction already has begun on the new 10-bed inpatient Gilchrist hospice facility in Harmony Hall Assisted Living in the Howard County Health Park. A “demolition party”  - where a wall was ceremoniously broken down within Harmony Hall to be replaced by the facility's entranceway -   was held Oct. 27. “Howard County patients and their families, as well as local government and community leaders, have advocated for many years for an inpatient presence within Howard County,” said Lori Mulligan, director of development and marketing at Gilchrist's Hunt Valley facility.

When the debilitating cell disease that had plagued their daughter since birth began last year to stop her heart for several minutes at a time, Dawn and Stephen Murphy turned to home hospice care. Hospice helped with both the practical and emotional aspects of caring for a 6-year-old child with a terminal illness. Hospice nurses made sure Kayla was comfortable in her Havre de Grace home. Counselors helped the parents cope with the possibility of death. "We don't want her to be in a sterile hospital environment," said Kayla's mom, Dawn.
