Dunbar senior point guard Corey Spence , injured in a car accident late last month, is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation and could be back on the court by mid-January, Dunbar coach Cyrus Jones said. Spence suffered internal injuries, including a punctured lung, but could be practicing in two weeks. Shortly after the accident, there was question whether Spence would return at all in his senior season. "We need him back because he changes a whole lot of things we do. When he's in there, it makes a big difference for us," Jones said.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Barely a day after the shooting at the Columbia Mall, columnist Dan Rodricks used the tragedy to promote social separatism at a time when the community needed to be brought together ("Expecting the horrible is the American way," Jan. 25). He took the opportunity to argue for sensible gun laws in an emotional, fear-mongering soliloquy that referred to Second Amendment rights activists as "gun worshipers" and implied that they are being unreasonable. Nothing could be further from the truth.

On a sunny summer day, 14-year-old Julianna Lupacchino is riding a horse on a Fallston farm. At first glance, the scene seems like nothing special - Harford County is horse country, after all - but at Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding, the occasion is very special indeed; Julianna more frequently uses a wheelchair. Julianna is one of 23 therapeutic riding clients at Chesapeake, where trained staff, volunteers and medical professionals use horses to facilitate physical and mental therapy.

The Jesuits (Society of Jesus) have a name for it - discernment. Discernment is basically a process of individual decision-making that attempts to get a glimpse of God's will apart from one's own ego. The raging debate on same-sex marriage brings this to mind ("A vote of conscience," Jan. 31). I am neither a theologian, philosopher nor a present or former Jesuit. Nor do I have an inside line on the will of God. I do have some abilities to reason and to process my own life's experiences, from which I make the following observations: If one looks to the Bible, I suspect a fairly sound case can be made against same-sex marriage.

The photographic images of injury, suffering and rehabilitation in Stephen John Phillips' exhibit "Healing the Twisted" at the Knight Gomez Gallery aren't directly graphic in a gross-out way, but they resonate in far more disturbing ways.It's unsettling to see pictures of healthy nude models wearing or caressing the braces and bandages associated with battered bodies. When a seemingly picture-of-health model with his back to us holds a crutch upright, it is as if he is holding it up like a cross of suffering to be embraced.

In a chaotic chain of events, the city's police commissioner came across a shooting in a Northeast neighborhood, prompting a police response that led to an accident and left several people injured. About 50 people turned out in midafternoon for a three-mile walk of the Sinclair Lane neighborhood to celebrate the beginning of the school year and to provide positive role models in the hope that children will steer away from violence.

Now, let the healing process begin. We may not forget, but forgiving becomes a lot easier when the words "I'm sorry" are mentioned. "Last time I didn't publicly apologize to my wife, and I realized that hit home with a lot of people," Rice said. "There's many nights that me and my wife sleep together and we still have to deal with this.

A new facial is gaining popularity around Baltimore, and while it won't make you live forever, some doctors and patients say it will make you look younger - at least for a few months. The vampire facial, a nonsurgical procedure made famous by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, uses a patient's blood to stimulate healing and regenerate cells. "After healing, my skin just seemed smoother," said Grace Ban, an Odenton resident who received the procedure to reduce the appearance of acne scars and minimize the wrinkles around her eyes.

It has been said that the United States has never really stopped fighting its Civil War. A glance at any current news source will suggest that we may never be finished with the post-9/11 conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, either. All of which makes "Healing Wars," the thoroughly original theatrical work conceived and directed by Liz Lerman, all the more timely and important. Commissioned by George Washington University and given its premiere by Arena Stage, this engrossing fusion of drama and dance (some music, too)

Yet for decades, the world-renowned boxer suppressed a devastating secret: Leonard had been sexually abused as a teen. "I didn't scream.

" The fighter recounts: "I just opened the door and ran. " Leonard, now 57, has become a national advocate fighting for children who have suffered abuse.

"The Healing," by Gayl Jones. Beacon. 283 pages. $23.Gayl Jones' first novel in 20 years, "The Healing," was, by some accounts, to have been a major literary event. However, two dark clouds hang over it. One is personal, violent and tragic. The other is the literary quality of the book itself.The story begins in the most recent stage of Harlan Truth Eagleton's life as a traveling faith healer. Jones traces that life from the end to beginning, starting with her on the road to a "healing." The reader revisits Harlan's life and the relationships that seemingly accounted for her departure from some of the temptations and distractions of the physical and material world, for more spiritual pursuits.

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see "12 Years a Slave" now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I'll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won't -- or can't -- see this movie. Some say they don't want to be made angry. Others say they don't want to be traumatized. I don't blame them for respecting the power of this film.
