COLLEGE PARK -- Because rain washed out Tuesday's competition at the state golf tournament, there was a bit of an unusual ending yesterday. Aberdeen senior Patrick Hinch tied for first place in the boys division and didn't know it until much later. He tied four others for first with a 1-over-par 72 when the Class 4A-3A golfers played on Monday at Maryland. The Class 2A-1A golfers went yesterday in what turned into an 18-hole tournament for everyone, and Hinch's score held up to give him a share of first place.

Mother Nature has officially fouled up the state golf tournament. The tournament was scheduled to run for three days at College Park. The first round of the Class 4A-3A competition was played Monday with the Class 2A-1A opening round set to go yesterday. Top qualifiers in all four classes were to return today for a second day. But the rain changed everything when it forced cancellation of yesterday's round. The rules that the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association set said that the tournament essentially becomes a one-day event for all four classes if either of the first two days were rained out. That means the Class 4A-3A golfers are finished and don't return, and the Class 2A-1A golfers play their lone day today.

In the span of several months in early 2002, two of the country's most famous historians were exposed as plagiarizers. Both Stephen Ambrose and Doris Kearns Goodwin, it was revealed, had borrowed liberally from lesser-known writers without proper attribution. At the time, I followed the controversies just closely enough to know that the misdeeds seemed to fall into a gray area. Both writers claimed their failures had been ones of sloppiness, not outright thievery; they had mixed up their notes and simply forgotten to add some quote marks and footnotes.

The American love affair with the automobile is as strong as ever, but satisfying our transportation needs is becoming increasingly complicated. "There are so many choices today for young people," said George E. Hoffer, an auto analyst and professor of economics at Virginia Commonwealth University. "To buy or to lease? A new car or a used car? It's not a one-size-fits-all situation. Each person's needs are different." As if that weren't enough to think about, Hoffer advises auto shoppers to pay as much attention to the details of financing a car as to the vehicle's options, color or style.

The nation's great used-car sale - which has provided consumers the lowest prices in years - is drawing to a close, according to industry officials. "I said it a year ago and I'll say it again: There has never been a better time to buy a used car," said Raymond C. Nichols, chairman and chief executive of Bel Air-based BSCAmerica Inc., which operates car auctions in Maryland and other parts of the country. "But those days are coming to an end." He said that prices on popular-model used cars, which have been falling 3 percent to 5 percent annually in recent years, and even more on less-popular models, "are expected to flatten out in 2003."
