In her studio at Mill Centre, Charlene Clark talks about her paintings and the people she's painted and those who look at them. Among other things, she's a kind of personal historian for residents of Baltimore and Ocean City and lots of the rest of Maryland. She paints the places that live in their memories. "They're always telling me stories," Clark says. "Constantly." "One year at Artscape a man pointed to my Edmondson Drive-In painting and yelled, `I lost my virginity there.' " The Edmondson Drive-In is gone now. Indeed, lots of the scenes captured by Clark have passed.

He had run a 31-minute 10K in the inaugural Constellation Classic, back when the tall ships breezed into the Inner Harbor and set the scene for Baltimore's premier 10-kilometer road race.But that was before responsibilities changed for Charlie Koester, forcing him to take a 10-year sabbatical from running."Years ago, I had done a lot of running," Koester says, "and then I took a layoff for a while because my sons were at the age where they took a lot of time and I'm one of those runners who won't compete if he can't train properly."

In women's lacrosse, nothing is more important than winning the draw. If you don't have the ball, you can't score and that's the ballgame. Just look at No. 1 Northwestern. The Wildcats have scored 304 goals this season. They also have won 304 draws. They've outdrawn every opponent, averaging 15.2 per game - eight more than the opposition. With those lopsided stats, it's no wonder coach Kelly Amonte Hiller's Wildcats are 20-0 and headed into this afternoon's NCAA Division I final against No. 6 and defending national champion Virginia at Navy Marine Corps Stadium.
