As if being the oldest player on UMBC men's lacrosse team wasn't enough, 22-year-old Matt Gregoire is battling an early onset of gray hair and is affectionately referred to by his teammates as "the team Dad. " "I'm called the team dad every once in a while by some of the guys because I'm the oldest," the Crofton native and South River graduate said with a grin. "I do catch a lot of flak for the gray hairs, but that's just the genetics that I have. I don't mind. I think it's fun. " A redshirt senior attackman, Gregoire's longevity may be a target for ribbing, but it's also a valuable resource for the Retrievers (2-1)

He's thinking about getting a tattoo, but cutting back on gigs with his rock band. He's as buff as ever, but eating more Lean Cuisine. He's juggling an impossible job and a big brood of kids, but wondering how long he can keep all those balls up in the air. Mayor Martin O'Malley turns 40 today, reaching that milestone where even a man who exudes youthful energy, drive and swagger can begin to feel the creep of age and the weight of ever-growing responsibility....

Some years ago, a Sun grandee being honored at a little retirement ceremony reflected on his long tenure at the paper. This worthy had at one time possessed the dignity of a correspondent in our Washington bureau, and I paraphrase what he said about the best of that time: My job was to file a story, and the job of the desk was to see to it that all of it got into the paper, without a lot of interference by the copy desk. * This memory popped to the surface today as I was reading the online ridicule of Tom Friedman's latest column in The New York Times . The opening paragraphs have afforded much innocent mirth:  I was at a conference in Bern, Switzerland, last week and struggling with my column.

Dr. Laurence J. Meyer found a foolproof way of getting rid of the gray hair that hijacked his mustache when he was about 35: He shaved it off. It took another five years for the hair on his head to start losing its color. Now that he is in his 50s, the dermatology professor at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center is reconciled to the salt-and-pepper look - though he keeps a keen eye on the direction of the gray creep. "It's getting more and more, coming in at the temples," he said.

Turmeric increases the anticoagulant effect of Coumadin. I have been on Coumadin for 15 years because of an artificial aortic valve. I had read that turmeric was effective in lowering cholesterol and began sprinkling it on broccoli. My international normalized ratio went up dramatically, and my pharmacist said, "STOP!" Have there been any studies on the blood-thinning effect of turmeric? You are not the first person to report this interaction between Coumadin (warfarin) and turmeric.

A year or so ago, you had a letter from a reader who said a pill she was taking turned her gray hair dark again. I know it's not guaranteed to work, but I'd like to try it. Do you know what she was taking? She was taking two cholesterol-lowering drugs, Zocor and Zetia. Her report was strange because her original hair color was blond, but her gray hair started growing in black while on these drugs. We invited other readers to tell us if they had similar hair-color changes, and many did. Most were on Zocor or Zetia or the combination (Vytorin)

Police have been searching without success for an 83-year-old Cherry Hill woman with Alzheimer's disease who has been missing since mid-September. Detective Tim Gardner of the missing persons unit said fliers distributed throughout Cherry Hill, numerous interviews with relatives and friends and ground searches by police officers and dogs have failed to locate Nevolia Olet Duvall of the 2600 block of Spelman Road. "We're really concerned about the safety and welfare of this missing person," Gardner said.

Sure, Washington's franchise quarterback had plenty of help as the...

Here's something to look forward to: The older we get, the more eligible we are to participate in clinical trials. These helpful research studies frequently include free evaluations, medications and follow-up visits. You really can't open a newspaper without seeing an advertisement for one of these programs. They make us acutely aware of the fact that a lot of stuff could be seriously wrong with us. We might be on a fast track to a highly undesirable condition! And yet, these recruitment ads often feature a benignly phrased question as a headline.

Baby boomers may be noticing a difference these days when they look in the mirror.Gray hair.And although a touch of gray at a man's temples has long been considered a mark of distinction by many, an increasing number of men are experimenting with coloring their hair.It stands to reason, say beauty experts. As men pay increasing attention to what they eat, what they wear and how often they work out, the idea of men pampering themselves and enhancing their looks is gaining acceptance. "Here in the United States we have the John Wayne factor -- where men shouldn't worry about their looks," says Ann York, grooming director for Combe, maker of Grecian Formula and Just for Men. "But we're overcoming that."

WE HAD BEEN together 18 years, through the good times and bad, through sickness and health and headed (or so I figured) 'til death do us part.Then something happened. Don't ask me why, but all of a sudden we just didn't seem right for each other. Maybe it was me. Maybe I was too much of a perfectionist, unwilling to tolerate the obvious flaws I saw in the two of us.Anyway, it's all over now. Splitsville.I went one way.My mustache went another.Shaved it off the other day.Those of you who have never worn a mustache or beard are no doubt thinking: Big deal.

Tom Christy is retired after a long and successful career as an electrical engineer. This is the time in his life when Christy can do all the things that he couldn't during the busy years when he worked constantly. For Christy, that means playing hockey on a regular basis. Christy, 65, is part of a group of men who play in a few hockey leagues for those age 50 and older at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel. The over-50 group - called the Senior Division - plays Sunday nights, while the 60-and-older group - the Geri-Hat Tricks - have ice time twice a week, usually Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
