When Liz Michalski and Kevin Smith said their wedding vows recently, they might have had a sense of deja vu. After all, the ceremony marked the second time the couple were marrying one another. But this time, Liz and Kevin say, their promise runs deeper. Though they never lost the love that began nearly a decade ago, the couple say, at 32, they're more mature and now more realistic about the commitment marriage requires. Liz and Kevin met in 1987 when Kevin was on leave from the U.S. Army.

Baltimore County Public Schools officials on Tuesday pledged to improve communications with Rodgers Forge residents regarding updates and revisions of a controversial proposal to renovate Dumbarton Middle School - a project that involves removal of several historic trees on the property. The $27.5 million plan calls for additions and renovations to make the 58-year-old school compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, bring the interior up to 21st-century standards and improve traffic flow and safety.

Kevin Smith thought he had done it this time - made a movie that wouldn't upset anyone. His previous films incurred the wrath of lesbians, Catholics and profanity haters. But Smith, 31, figured he was treading in far more innocuous waters with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. The saga of a pair of slackers who set out for Hollywood to defend what could loosely be called their reputations, the movie takes on no sacred cows, has no language worse than that in most R-rated films and just tries to make people laugh.

The timing is a little peculiar, but the Denver Broncos said adieu to former starting quarterback Kyle Orton on Tuesday. He had a good fantasy run under Josh McDaniels, but turnovers did him in with new coach John Fox. Where will Orton wind up? We will find out in the next few days. But Houston and Chicago lost their starting quarterbacks to injury, as did Kansas City, which isn't in the playoff hunt. Teams with worse records than the Texans and Bears get first dibs, but if the bottom-feeders pass, those two teams are intriguing destinations.

New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani may not have too many friends in the arts these days, but at least for one weekend last month -- the weekend that the Brooklyn Museum of Art opened its notorious "Sensation" exhibit, to be exact -- he was No. 1 with movie director Kevin Smith."

WASHINGTON -- In the original cut of Clerks, writer-director Kevin Smith killed off a main character (a less-lethal ending was substituted before the movie hit theaters). In the commentary for a laser disc release of the movie, the indie stalwart says an accompanying music video is "as close to a Clerks sequel as you'll ever get." When Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was released in 2001, bringing back the drug-dealing muses who serve as the Greek chorus for Clerks, he was widely quoted as saying that marked the last appearance by those characters.

Clerks II packs few surprises. Chronic slackers Dante and Randal are still working behind a counter. Jay and Silent Bob are still selling weed and pushing their own brand of stoner philosophy. Writer-director Kevin Smith remains plugged in to a moronic mindset that would be hilarious if only it were ... Oh, to heck with the moralizing. Yes, the characters in Clerks II hardly qualify as role models, but they can be blisteringly funny in an in-your-face, to-heck-with-taste way. And while the film sometimes stoops to lows the term sophomoric barely describes, it also possesses a sly wisdom and compassion that's easy to admire.

Going into the boys basketball regional playoffs, all the talk concerning Class 2A North was centered on the top half of the bracket, which features two-time defending state champion and City, ranked sixth, and No. 7 Edmondson. In Monday night's quarterfinal at No. 13 Lake Clifton, Digital Harbor reminded everybody that there was also some talent in the lower half of the bracket. While the host Lakers showed plenty of fight in coming back from an early deficit, it was the Rams who showed character in the final minute of a highly competitive and intense game.

Just one year ago, Kevin Smith couldn't be stopped. Baltimore Freedom Academy's sophomore point guard averaged nearly 30 points and eight assists per game, playing in relative anonymity at the East Baltimore charter school on Lombard St. Today Smith, who moved to Baltimore from Brooklyn, N.Y. before his sixth-grade year, finds himself far removed from city life and his earlier high school basketball existence. The 6-foot, 200-pound junior now lives in West Virginia, going to school during the day and playing for Huntington Prep at night.

June Jones spent last night trying to decide whether to accept an offer to coach Southern Methodist or return to Hawaii, where the governor is among those trying to keep him. "It's been a wild day," agent Leigh Steinberg said. "I haven't seen anything like this before. It's emotionally wrenching for June." Jones was in Dallas meeting with SMU officials and the search committee that has been working since late October to hire a replacement for Phil Bennett. Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle called to see what she could do, and the president who oversees the entire University of Hawaii system called with an updated contract proposal.

Today I wrap up my career as a football dad, a guy who sits in the stands on Saturdays cheering for his offspring. Our younger son, a senior at Johns Hopkins, straps on his helmet for the last time as the Blue Jays take on the McDaniel Green Terror in the final game of the year this afternoon at Homewood Field. In some ways, the experiences of being a sideline parent are the same regardless of the sport being played. Over the years of watching my two sons play various sports, the four horsemen of emotion - pride, elation, frustration and worry - have often kept me company.
