Catherine Hardwicke has made a career of depicting teenagers in extraordinary situations, first with Thirteen (2003), about a girl who falls victim to a perfect storm of adolescent rebellion, then with Lords of Dogtown (2005), which lionized the young men and women in the 1970s who turned skateboarding into an extreme sport. But her new film trumps both of those earlier efforts. The Nativity Story, opening Dec. 1, tells the story of Jesus' birth by focusing on Mary, the young Nazarene girl chosen by God to bear his son. Two thousand years later, no teen has ever found herself in a comparable position, nor one for which she was as unprepared.

YOU COULD ASK senior golf professional Dana Quigley if you don't think payback is sweet. A club pro who hit the New England tournament circuit for years, Mr. Quigley's game held up long enough to bring him a bit of celebrity and some handsome paychecks. A number of pros you probably never heard of have been blessed by the circuit created to give Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and other name players a place to compete and to make money for local charities and local economies. The good fortune of Mr. Quigley, who is competing this weekend at Hobbit's Glen in Columbia, strikes me as another reason to believe the golfing gods are not always so stern and unforgiving.

New York - - It's the tail end of a killer day and Hillary Clinton settles into the sofa on the 14th floor of the Intercontinental looking remarkably alert and limp free, drinking spring water straight out of a plastic bottle.The day broke with a sheaf of headlines declaring that the campaign was manufacturing a ''gentler, kinder'' Hillary. Family Circle featured a political bake-off between Hillary's and Barbara's chocolate chip cookie recipes.More than one story talked about the ''two sides'' of the candidate's wife: heads up she's a lawyer, heads down she's a wife.

If you've spent any time in the past few months listening to rock radio or watching MTV, odds are you're familiar with the refrain. "Soy un perdidor," sings a ragged male voice as a bottle-neck guitar whines over a funky drum loop. "I'm a loser baby/So why don't you kill me?"It's called "Loser," and its success has surprised no one more than the man who sings it."I thought that maybe the song would do well," says Beck, a 23-year-old former street musician. "We took so long in getting the song out that I thought its time had probably passed.

IT'S been a year since my near-death computer experience. In that time I've grown as a human being. Sunsets are more beautiful. I notice stars. I'm nicer to dogs.Like many Americans, I use a computer software program to do my income taxes. Last April 14 around 11 p.m. I was finally finished after weeks of work. I felt a little relieved.I had to send in some money, but at least it was done. All I had to do was print it out.Then I noticed a "Final Review" command. The program would check the return for inconsistencies and offer tax-saving ideas.

One thought popped into Donny Brady's head as he was about to be introduced to the Memorial Stadium crowd before yesterday's game against the New Orleans Saints: It finally happened.Thirteen months after being released by the Cleveland Browns, and 11 months after being waived out of the Canadian Football League, Brady stood on the threshold of his first start in the NFL. He would be the Ravens' right cornerback, having unseated third-year veteran Issac Booth. This would be his opportunity.

It's never a good idea to base your expectations on what you see in a music video. Just ask Donna Lewis, who remembers being very much surprised to learn that, in real life, Sting was nowhere near as big as her TV made him seem."

David Towns remembers wanting to play for a recreation soccer team his father coached, but league officials would not permit it. Towns was 4 years old at the time, tagging along after an older brother and an older sister.Over the years, his development has been steady, and now, as a Westminster junior, he is in his second season as a starter in the midfield."It's up to me to distribute the ball, because it goes through me and to the outside. I know the coach wants me to take charge, take control of the situation," said Towns, a slender 6-footer.
