In response to your article "Roland Park parents say it's all work, no play for kids" (Sept. 24), we applaud the efforts of these parents and support their commitment to provide recess for students in grades 6-8. Recess and free play are as important to the learning process as being in the classroom and doing homework. The latest research shows that the brain, like a muscle, needs time to relax, absorb and process in order for information to register in long-term memory. All students, regardless of age, require breaks in instruction to maximize learning.

Swerdlin, who represented accused drug dealers, admitted to smuggling Suboxone strips into the Baltimore County Detention Center during visits with clients, according to a statement from the Baltimore County State's Attorney's office. She also received Oxycodone as payment for legal services and arranged by other means to purchase the drug, the statement said.

Mount Hebron twins Katie and Jill Rekart have always been in tune with each other, and that is especially true on the basketball court. The senior guards instinctively know how the other one moves and thinks, possessing a sense for where the other will be before the defense has a chance to figure it out. There have been numerous instances over their careers when Katie, a point guard, has threaded a seemingly ill-advised pass. But an instant before the ball sails out of bounds or into the hands of a defender, it winds up in the hands of Jill, appearing out of nowhere as she converts the basket.

Back in 1970 when Maryland was just entering what might be described as its golden age of political corruption, the General Assembly passed a law to make it easier for people to obtain government records. The Public Information Act was seen as a way to help hold all state agencies - executive, legislative and judicial - more accountable to the citizens. The PIA has been a huge success. Every day it is used by someone somewhere to peruse the fine print of a disputed contract, find out how taxpayer dollars are spent, discover what senior officials are saying to each other (or to those in private industry they are supposed to be regulating)

"I'm afraid I've lost Trevor for good," says Jill, 33, a petite brunette. "I need him terribly, but he is too ashamed of what he did to come near me," she adds.The other night, she explains, they were arguing over whether Trevor had been too chummy with a female graduate student at a party for the school's provost. "He started to walk away from me, but as usual I followed him into the other room," Jill recalls. Then, for the first time since they met, he turned around and gave her a shove and a smack across the face that knocked her over.

When Tyler Fyre and Thrill Kill Jill (real names: Tyler and Jill Fleet) aren't tending to their children in their Harpers Ferry, WVa., home, they're engaging in their other passion: sword swallowing. "It's a great conversation to have with the guy sitting next to you on the plane," said Fyre, the 37-year-old ringmaster and sword swallower of the Lucky Daredevil Thrill Show. 'Hi Bob, from Des Moines, nice to meet you and funny you should ask, I'm a sword swallower.' Where the conversation goes from there really tells you more about the other person than it does about me. " Fyre, who also works as a technician who wires computer and telephone networks, rose to fame after his former roommate trained him how to swallow swords for the performance at the Sideshow in Coney Island, eventually roping in Jill to join the fun after meeting her while working.

When Jill Smokler - more widely known as Scary Mommy - starts talking about motherhood, you'll hear a lot about sleepless nights, green snot and having kids walk into the master bedroom at the most inopportune times. Does she think her children are amazing and love them to death? Definitely. But mothering them didn't come naturally. As she says in her new book, "Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies)," what does come naturally is "Food. Sleep. Comfort. Privacy.

I met Jill Smokler for coffee this morning for a Q&A that's scheduled to run in our Scene section on Mother's Day. She's the Scary Mommy blogger and author of the bestseller " Confessions of a Scary Mommy " and the new book " Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies) . " I won't steal my own thunder here but will say two things: She is not so scary that I wanted to call child protective services, and that she probably had the pleasure of looking up my nose way too many times as I threw my head back in laughter.

Alpine skiing coach Diane Mikulis watched as the body language of her Special Olympic athletes - including Marylander Jake Reynolds - transformed one day last month from mildly interested to awe-struck. They had just entered Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid, N.Y., where international flags hung majestically from the rafters and where banners and murals honored historic athletic events. The skiers listened to a brief history of the venue and now were being told they were going to be allowed on the ice. They grinned widely, and a smile slowly crept onto Mikulis' face, too, as her skiers restlessly and excitedly waited to descend the stairs.

On Impact on Thursday, Kurt Angle cut a promo in which he again brought up Jeff Jarrett's three young daughters. He said that after he gets through with Jarrett, the girls will be orphans. Jarrett's wife, Jill, succumbed to breast cancer last year. By my count, this is the third instance in which Jill Jarrett's death has been used for story-line fodder. I just don't see the entertainment value in any of this. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)
