At first, Alciabades Cortez believed his wife was joking."I really thought it was bull," said the veteran rider on the Maryland thoroughbred circuit. "She talked about it, but I never thought she wanted to really be a jockey. This was like a big surprise. But I said we'll try it and see what happens."Amy Cortez -- with some prompting from trainer Jerry Robb -- was dead serious about entering her husband's profession and, as an apprentice rider, is getting occasional mounts from Robb, one of the state's heavyweight horsemen.

Competition is a basic fact of life. Most of us consider it normal on the job, at school and, of course, in sports.But the idea of married people competing with each other seems ugly. The fact is, though, that in many marriages, at some point both husband and wife may become aware of envy and one-upmanship.Even couples who pride themselves on being equals may wonder, "Is there really room in this relationship for two successful people? Or if one of us advances, is the other one diminished?"

With a paintbrush and watercolor, Avraham Cohen launches more Jews into marriage than many rabbis.He is a master of the ketubbah.The word is Aramaic for "marriage contract," a religious document that dates back some 2,000 years, a binding agreement that lays out basic responsibilities between a husband and wife and penalties for shirking them.Often, it is a simple thing, a piece of paper with the right words on it.In the hands of Mr. Cohen, it is a holy work of art."God gives out certain talents to certain people," said Mr. Cohen, an Orthodox Jew of 45 who lives off of Park Heights Avenue in northwest Baltimore.

To paraphrase his own words, reader Sheldon Laskin displays stunning ignorance of the position of the Catholic Church on sex ( "Pope's comments on gays are less significant than they appear," Aug. 2). Yes, the Catholic Church insists that the sexual act is properly an act of love between a man and woman who are married. That part he got right. However, it also teaches that married couples must be open to the possibility of procreation - not that sex is "only for procreation," as Mr. Laskin asserts.

Back in 1988, newlyweds and Harford County natives Paula and Tom Harman decided they wanted to grow two acres of sweet corn and about 50 tomato plants on their home farm in Churchville. The fruits of their labor were more than two people could eat, so they set up a little cart along the side of the road. “We sold corn and tomatoes. Unbelievably, people came to us,” says Paula. “Each year after that, we grew a little bit more and expanded the variety of what we grew.” Thus, Harman's Farm Market was born.

The first thing that strikes you about the Maryland Arts Festival's production of Lee Blessing's "Two Rooms" is that, zTC contrary to expectations arising from the title, the set is not neatly divided into two rooms, side by side.Instead, as conceived by designer Gary Siegler, the spare, abstract set consists of a central platform at the back of the stage, representing a cell in Beirut where an American teacher named Michael Wells is being held hostage. The area surrounding the platform represents Wells' home in the States, where his wife, Lainie, has attempted to create a room she believes approximates her husband's cell.

A police stakeout in a section of Annapolis plagued in recent weeks by thefts of packages from doorsteps led officers to a husband-and-wife team now charged in several of the incidents. Undercover officers watched Wednesday afternoon as a UPS delivery person left a package at a home in the first block of Whisperwind Lane and then saw a man go to the house 12 minutes later and take it, police spokesman Ray Weaver said. An officer tried to stop the man, but he drove off in a black Chevrolet Blazer and threw the package from a window of his vehicle, Weaver said.
