James Guyton plays basketball. But skiing? Not so much; especially since it means being out in the cold. When the Chesapeake Ski & Sports Club Inc. invites African-American teenagers to try a day on the slopes, members expect such resistance. It took some gentle prodding from counselors at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore before Guyton, 16, reluctantly agreed to try snowboarding - which seemed a little cooler. Wrapped up warmly in a red ski jacket and black pants borrowed from the local ski group, he stumbled his way down the bunny slope at the Whitetail Resort in Pennsylvania during the recent visit.

I would like to add another point to L. Richmond Sparks' objection to public schools outcasting of home schooled kids ( "Don't shut out home-schoolers," April 20). I had a young lady on a number of my soccer teams. At 14 years old, Nikki would have been the best player on the local high school varsity team, by a wide margin. Nikki was better than almost all the varsity boys. She was blazing fast, had extraordinary ball control skills, and had powerful shots from either foot. She was the complete package.

A 5-year-old from Lutherville, a tot who campaigns for animal rights and says animals are friends not food, is vying for the title of PETA's Cutest Vegan Kid. Maya Parker-Rollins, who's been vegan her whole short life, is competing to be the girl winner against four other cuties. There will be a boy and a girl winner who will appear in a PETA ad. She's up against some stiff competition. There's the 14-month-old Ramona from Ohio who loves potatoes and tofu. Another 5-year-old, Ciera, who's got carrot-red hair and poses in her contest shot with a pet mouse (that looks more like a pet rat)

It was nearly noon, not midnight, and the ball that hung three stories high looked more like a cross between a pinata and a helium balloon than the giant one in Times Square that grown-ups have come to know and love. But to a crowd of more than 1,900 - many sporting tutus, face glitter and brightly colored party hats - the setting at the Maryland Science Center could not have been more perfect for ringing in the New Year, kid-style. It was the second annual Midnight Noon, a bash the museum calls a New Year's celebration for those whose bedtime happens long before the ball in Times Square makes its descent, and all the right people were excited.

I've been thinking a lot about college lately. It's not as though it's staring me in the face, either. The oldest is finishing his freshman year in high school. The youngest is still in elementary school. Still, what's occurring on America's college campuses is on my front burner. First and foremost is the ever-escalating cost of a four-year degree - the cause of many a sleepless night for moms and dads. Tuition, fees, room and board for many private colleges has now hit $60,000 a year.

From Liz Atwood: I'm just not getting enough sleep and the kids are the reason why. My sons are no longer infants crying in the middle of the night to be fed or changed. They aren't toddlers running into my room when they have a bad dream. They are a tween and a teen and they just can't seem to fall asleep until very late at night. Their habit of staying up until 11 or later is taking its toll on all of us. Last week, the 16-year-old, who has to get up at 6:30 in order to make the bus on time, asked to have coffee at breakfast.

The usual stars of the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore — the wild cats, hulking elephants and graceful cranes whose habitats are re-created on the grounds — lost some of the spotlight Tuesday to the players, cheerleaders and mascot of the Baltimore Ravens, as the team and zoo played host to about 120 local schoolchildren for an annual community service event. Tuesday was the NFL/United Way's annual "Hometown Huddle," a leaguewide day of service, which this year is focused on combating childhood obesity by getting kids to be more active.

Every spring save maybe seven of my 24 years at The Sun, I have spent part of February and March in some city around Florida, where the Orioles were holding spring training. It first started for me in Miami, where the camp was in a very bad section of the town, so it was always protected by throngs of Miami's "finest." The Orioles then moved to a very peaceful camp on the outskirts of Sarasota, where former pitcher Ben McDonald spent his off-time wrestling alligators, which inhabited a swamp near the camp.

After patiently sitting along a back wall for nearly a half hour, 10-year-old Kaenetra Everett could finally test the new hockey equipment sitting neatly in the corner of the gymnasium. "This is the first time they've brought hockey to this community so that we can play," Everett said after practicing faceoffs, shooting and passing with her friends. "For practice, I think I did good." The equipment arrived at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center in West Baltimore's Upton neighborhood Wednesday as part of NHL Street, a league-wide program which brings street hockey to children ages 6-16 in cities where ice rinks may not be available.
