Julie Kershaw refused to label her 6-year-old daughter "black" or "white" when she registered the girl at McCormick Elementary School in eastern Baltimore County last week.So, in what some say has become an uncomfortable rite for multiracial families nationwide, officials chose for her -- labeling Sa'sha Rogers-Kershaw as "white," to the displeasure of her parents."She knows she's black and white. She's proud of who she is," Kershaw, who is white, said of her daughter. "Her father and I are not together but he agrees with me. Neither one of us wants to drop part of her ethnicity."

In Susan Kershaw's eyes, a dried coneflower on a slender stalk is not a prickly brown husk, but texture to be added to a winter floral arrangement.

Still digging out from the rubble of the previous regime, the Ottawa Rough Riders began looking down the road last week.They introduced their 1995 season-ticket plan with special discounts for fans who pay in full by Nov. 5.Such is the state of a Canadian Football League franchise that hasn't had a winning season since 1979, and barely lasted through the Bernie Glieberman era, which stretched from 1991 until this year.The Rough Riders, who face the Baltimore CFLs in Ottawa today, have already cut ticket prices three times this season, and they've seen one potential investor pull out. Now, they're borrowing on next year's ticket revenues.
