Sometimes a woman's gotta do what a woman's gotta do. In Kathy Harkum's case, that means driving her three children a half-mile to school in a golf cart -- even though she's legally blind.But on the first day of school Monday, the 31-year-old Pasadena woman, who is ineligible for a state driver's license, encountered the county police outside Riviera Beach Elementary School and was warned that if she drove the cart again it would be towed."Now I'm stuck," Ms. Harkum complained yesterday. "It took me 30 years to find a way to transport myself, and I finally did it. Now, my neighbor's back to taking the kids to school, and I'm going to have to ask my family to take me grocery shopping."

Former Ravens owner Art Modell  has been hospitalized at Johns Hopkins Hospital  and remains there this morning, confirmed Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president of public and community relations. There is no word about his current condition though Modell, 87, has been of fading health. Modell, who retains one percent ownership of the Ravens, bought the Cleveland Browns for $4 million in 1961 and moved them here three decades later, a decision that left him beloved in Baltimore but reviled in Cleveland.

The Baltimore Grand Prix lurched toward its starting line Thursday as downtown was consumed by the chaos of last-minute preparations for the three-day event. Wide-scale road closings began to take effect, preparing the race course along downtown streets for high-speed practice runs. And that forced businesses, schools and residents to adjust routines to cope with the blocked roads and walkways, public transit changes and increased traffic near the track. But getting downtown Baltimore to grind to a halt was no easy task.

Art Modell doesn't make road trips anymore. He no longer endures marathon work weeks, either. As for major decisions around the Ravens, let's just say it's a choice between baked chicken and prime rib at the team's cafeteria. Modell's reign as majority owner might have ended in 2004 with the sale of the Ravens to Steve Bisciotti, but his attachment to the team and its lifestyle did not. On any given Wednesday or Thursday, he can be seen motoring around the team's Owings Mills practice facility in a golf cart - often with his wife, Pat - lunching with friends or chatting up former employees.

SOME OF YOU may take in the big golf tournament in town this weekend, the State Farm Senior Classic, and find inspiration in the way the pros can still airmail a 4-iron at the flag from the next county, or rattle home a 30-foot putt that breaks faster than an election-year promise. But if you were at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley, where the geezers are teeing up, there was inspiration to be had on a much grander scale Tuesday. Under a broiling sun, a golfer named Dennis Walters put on an exhibition of shot-making that left a couple hundred spectators, many of them young kids, shaking their heads in wonder.

FOR SUCH A PROLONGED, complicated legal squabble, the disagreement between the PGA Tour and disabled golfer Casey Martin actually was pretty simple to understand. The Tour chose to view the case philosophically, as a matter of cold, hard-hearted theory. Martin viewed it realistically, emotionally - how could he not? Both sides had some valid arguments to make, which was why each felt strongly enough to dig in and take the case all the way to the Supreme Court, where Martin won yesterday when the court ruled 7-2 in his favor, upholding a 1998 lower-court decision granting him the right to use a cart in PGA Tour events.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court, appearing reluctant to referee the rules of pro sports, reacted skeptically yesterday to a plea that it order the PGA Tour to let disabled golfer Casey Martin use a cart during its tournaments. Most of the justices seemed willing to treat a golf tournament as an activity covered by the federal law that bars discrimination against the disabled but not to use that law to force significant changes in the way golf is played professionally. At issue in the case the justices heard yesterday is the PGA Tour's long-followed "walking" rule: No golfer at one of its tournaments is allowed to use a cart to get around the course.

A former assistant golf pro at the Links at Challedon near Mount Airy has been charged with falsely reporting an armed robbery after he apparently misplaced the day's receipts in the office, according to state police at the Westminster barracks. Christopher Joseph Mears, 22, of Frederick called police Aug. 26 and reported a man had put a gun to his back about 9 p.m. as he was getting into his car in the parking lot, then forced him to lie on the ground and fled with about $6,000. "Actually, he had gotten the night deposits together and then there was some confusion in the golf house" at closing time about a missing key to a golf cart.

TANGIER ISLAND, Va. -- On pleasant evenings, teen-age islanders congregate on the steps of the weathered post office and converse in a lilting parlance that traces to their Elizabethan forebears. Ofttimes the talk is of leaving. "There's more to do" on the mainland, explains Sandy Dise, 15, a 10th-grader whose roots run generations deep in the scant island soil. "And you don't have to take a boat when you want to do it." "We're losing the young people," laments Mayor Dewey Crockett, who is also assistant principal of the school, music director and organist at Swain Memorial United Methodist Church, and the undertaker.
