LOST IN the swirl around the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County's Covenant Park field complex has been an altering of leadership in the county's largest amateur sports organization. David Procida, a key SAC/HC leader in Covenant Park's acquisition, was voted to a two-year term as the group's president during last month's annual meeting. This doesn't mean that Jim Carlan, who had been SAC/HC president for six years and is in his 29th year with the 6,000-player organization, is going away.

GROUNDBREAKINGS are akin in many ways to weddings, anniversaries or birthday parties and other such family observances. They're milestones, celebrating things positive and the future. Let it rain, as it did yet again last Wednesday morning, and the meaning and enthusiasm don't change. So it was Wednesday with growling Chesapeake Contracting Group earth-moving equipment starting to turn 52 acres off Centennial Lane into what by March, if all goes well, will be eight soccer fields and a headquarters building for the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County.

Are middle and high school students likely to attend a "Teen Expo?" In the eyes of HC DrugFree's Teen Advisory Council, there is no way. This is what Jessa Coulter, a senior at Mount Hebron High School, who co-chairs the council, told the board of directors. "None of the adults agreed," Coulter said. "But, it was my job to convince them otherwise, and I did. Teens don't identify with the word expo." As a result of the teens' efforts, the HC DrugFree Job and Volunteer fair kept its original name.

ONE OF the most important public meetings in terms of amateur sports in Howard County since the mid-1990s' lean-budget years is to occur in Ellicott City on Thursday night. That's the Board of Appeals hearing on Covenant Park, the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County's proposed 10-field complex off Centennial Lane, roughly opposite Centennial Park. The 7:30 p.m. session in the county government's George Howard Building will be a go/no-go moment for SAC/HC, which began thinking a decade ago about building fields.

SO MANY people like to play, watch and hang around sports because of all the ways they can reflect life. Sports can make you feel happy, or sad, or glad, or thrilled, or dismayed, or discouraged or determined. But while games always, in the end, play out for fun, there is at least one indisputable difference between them and real life: War. And so tomorrow morning, Jerry Fischer's wife, son and daughter, other family members and friends - who include many in the Soccer Association of Columbia-Howard County - will wave him goodbye and add him to their prayers for a minimum of six months.

It's not easy to get a 14-year-old to consider being more careful at parties. But that's the effect a program on teen drinking and driving had on Derek Staub, a freshman at Centennial High School. "It did kind of influence me to be more careful when I'm older," Derek said. He was among about 100 students and parents who gathered in the Centennial High auditorium Wednesday night for "Branded `D.U.I' - Consequences for Teens Who Drink and Drive," a program from the nonprofit HC DrugFree.

His mother, Crissy Reid, sitting next to him in the Howard High School auditorium, had insisted on it. The Howard High senior, like most new graduates from Maryland and surrounding states, plans to spend a week in June at the beach with his friends, and she wanted to be sure he knew how to stay safe and out of trouble. "He's never been away from home before, unchaperoned," Crissy Reid said.
