Councilwoman Rochelle "Rikki" Spector suggested that some might be offended by the mention of specific religious figures, such as Jesus.

IT'S THAT TIME of year again, that uplifting season when we're all reminded of how incredibly fat we are and what pigs we were over the holidays. So once again this January, you can't pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV without seeing an ad or commercial for this hot new diet or that weight-loss program or this gym. And the ads still trot out those ever-popular "before" and "after" shots where stout women in oversized T-shirts and baggy sweatpants are...

One in an occasional series about the fitness habits of Marylanders. Three mornings a week Mike Tate maneuvers his "little Jaguar" through downtown traffic, making the short trip from his apartment near Camden Yards to Power Plant Live. Most of the way he rides on the sidewalk. Reckless driver? A guy with serious pedestrian issues? Not at all. "Jaguar" is one of the nicknames Tate uses for his high-tech, ultra-cool, $10,000 motorized wheelchair. But even more impressive than the mode of transportation (disc brakes, mag wheels, a rockin' max speed of 6 mph)

Responding to an onslaught of criticism, Annapolis officials have drastically changed the boundaries of the proposed "Capital City Arts and Entertainment District" to exclude outer West Street and incorporate inner West Street and the Clay Street area. The city has also struck the word "entertainment" from the district's name to placate residents who argued it would bring an onslaught of entrepreneurs requesting 2 a.m. liquor licenses. It is now called the "Capital City Cultural Arts Center."

It took exactly two weeks for Kirstie Durr to break a pledge to get in shape for the new year on her brand new ProForm 525 X treadmill. It wasn't for lack of willpower. Blame this resolution relapse on the $450 treadmill that her husband purchased for her online as a Christmas present. The confounded contraption simply went kaput in the middle of a fairly innocuous 45-minute walk. "It just got stuck on 10, a really, really steep incline," said Durr, 36, a senior vice president of a high-powered marketing firm in Baltimore.

In the days before crashing American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon, the hijackers moved freely around Maryland - working out at Gold's Gym in Greenbelt, taking flying lessons in Bowie, buying tickets for the doomed flight at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. This, despite the fact that two of them were on the State Department's watch list for terrorists. As federal investigators piece together the final days of the five suicide terrorists, a picture of their links to Maryland has begun to emerge more clearly.

Maryland doctors have been asked to provide the FBI with medical information that might help investigators identify the remains of nine of the 19 men suspected in the Sept. 11 terrorist hijackings. The FBI's request was forwarded in an e-mail sent late Friday by Maryland Med-Chi, the state medical society. Doctors and other health-care providers who might have treated any of the men were asked to provide the FBI with records. The names and birth dates of the men are: Salem Alhazmi, Feb. 2, 1981.
