GRUNDY, Va. - The rains keep falling here in the heart of Appalachia, turning old coal towns into flooded disaster zones and destroying hundreds of houses of stoic residents who can only accept what nature has cruelly delivered this summer. But not so here, not in this fading riverfront town that hopes to resurrect itself with an ingenious leap across the river in one of the most complex flood-control projects in the nation. Grundy, with a population of 1,175 in far western Virginia, plans to move its downtown to higher ground by decapitating a mountain just across the chronically treacherous Levisa River.

Joseph Michael Regan, a longtime Highlandtown tavern owner and World War II veteran, died of heart failure Jan. 23 in his home above his Grundy Street establishment. He was 84. Mr. Regan, the son of an Irish-born East Baltimore saloonkeeper, was born in Baltimore and raised in a rowhouse at Grundy Street and Foster Avenue. He attended city public schools and enlisted in the Navy in 1941. He served aboard the USS Pheasant, a minesweeper, as a fireman in the ship's engine room. During 1943, the minesweeper helped protect convoys steaming along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast before being assigned to Europe, where it swept mines before the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944.

WASHINGTON - One of the keys to Connecticut's victory was its ability to keep North Carolina State standout guard Anthony Grundy under relative wraps. Grundy, who averaged 23 points in the ACC tournament and had 16 in his team's first-round game against Michigan State, scored 17 points yesterday, but he was all but shackled early. The Huskies made Grundy's life miserable during a first half in which he made only one of his first eight shots. Taliek Brown and Caron Butler were just two of those responsible for the defense.

GRUNDY, Va. -- The yellow ribbons begin 5 miles outside of town. Pinned to telephone poles, traffic signs, storefronts and fast-food restaurants, they lead down a winding mountain road to the stately red-brick buildings of the Appalachian School of Law. Two more ribbons, their bows as big as basketballs, flutter on the rustic arbor outside the student lounge, silent reminders of one of the strangest campus crimes of recent years. On Jan. 16, a gunman entered the fledgling law school and shot six people, police say, among them the school's academic leader, Dean L. Anthony Sutin, a former senior Justice Department official who had turned his back on Washington to teach the sons and daughters of coal miners.

Herb Sendek said he is too busy trying to win the next game to contemplate the revival unfolding at North Carolina State. The Wolfpack has not been to the NCAA tournament since 1991, and Sendek entered his sixth season in Raleigh as a head coach on the hot seat. His shaky job security was one reason why highly recruited point guard John Gilchrist spurned N.C. State and signed with Maryland, even though Gilchrist will have to compete with Steve Blake - who will be a senior - in College Park next season.

A second officer has been suspended as the Baltimore Police Department investigates a case in which a dog's throat was slit. Officer Thomas Schmidt, a 24-year veteran assigned to the Emergency Services unit, was placed on paid administrative leave after police say he held down a Shar-Pei while a fellow officer, Jeffrey Bolger, slit the dog's throat. Bolger, a Special Operations Section officer hired by the department in 1992, was released on his own recognizance Thursday morning after being charged the night before with aggravated animal cruelty, animal cruelty and malfeasance in office.

It is a house of horrors, and it stands alone on Pulaski Highway, a boarded, narrow two-story brick rowhouse built in 1920, flanked by a freshly mowed lawn. It's all but abandoned next to a Dunkin' Donuts and a BGE substation on a stretch of fast-food restaurants, gas stations and strip clubs. Sister Myra was killed here back in 1994, beheaded by a deranged man who thought the matriarch of one of the most powerful Gypsy clans in the country had put a hex on him. The funeral for Sister Myra - or Deborah Stevens, 62 - brought hundreds of Gypsies to the city to pay homage to their fallen leader in a three-day drunken celebration.
