TROON, Scotland - Until he shot a 66 to take the second-round lead of the British Open yesterday, here's what Skip Kendall was famous for: cutting off part of his finger while trying to slice a frozen bagel, playing 310 tournaments without winning, waiting tables at an Italian restaurant to make ends meet as a struggling mini-tour player, and having a pool party at his house break up early when a tornado touched down nearby. At 39, he's not exactly the new kid on the block, and even if this is only his third stop at the British Open, who's counting?

Miss Collela. That's what they will call her, stumbling over the syllables of her name. Twenty-one kindergartners, ages 4 and 5 -- kids with boundless energy and the attention span of gnats. Six of them will arrive at Smithsburg Elementary School this day, Aug. 27. Arrival of the remainder will be staggered throughout the week. Together they will make up Miss Collela's first class. "I'm nervous," says Roberta Collela, 26, straightening the chairs around a large table lined with name cards.

MICHAEL Waters-Bey stood only yards from the flag-draped coffin that held the remains of his only son. His son's only son stood beside him. They greeted each of the mourners who walked by the coffin, the closed one with a picture propped above it to remind us of what Marine Staff Sgt. Kendall Damon Waters-Bey, in dress uniform, looked like when he was alive. Rep. Elijah Cummings of the 7th Congressional District was among the elected officials who attended Waters-Bey's funeral Friday morning at St. Matthew's Roman Catholic Church on Loch Raven Boulevard.

The tall, thin holy man in the tassled maroon fez and brilliant red sash stood high in the sanctuary of St. Matthew's Roman Catholic Church, the long fingers of his white-gloved hands pressed firmly against his temples, and he sang a Muslim call to prayer, ancient and solemn, and his voice echoed off the high stone walls of the church, as if some ghost in a distant land were answering him.

U.S. MARINE Staff Sgt. Kendall D. Waters-Bey grew up in a typical Northeast Baltimore rowhouse. He was a fun-loving young man, an athlete and a leader, who got serious about life after he graduated from Harbor City High and his first wife became pregnant with his now 10-year-old son. He joined the Marines to make something of himself, and by all accounts he loved his career and was succeeding admirably. Today, family and friends of the 29-year-old helicopter crew chief will gather at the Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery in Owings Mills to bury him. Sergeant Waters-Bey died March 20 in Kuwait, among the first 12 coalition deaths, four American and eight British, in this gulf war. The men were flying a mission in a CH-46E Sea Knight helicopter that crashed in the desert just south of Iraq.
