A bearded Sikh immigrant has won the right to an all-American job at Domino's Pizza.Prabhjot S. Kohli, 53, of Catonsville suffered religious discrimination when a local Domino's franchisee refused to hire him in 1987 as a manager in training because Mr. Kohli wouldn't shave his beard, an administrative law judge has ruled.Judge Merry C. Hudson ordered LOOC Inc., the Timonium-based franchisee, to offer Mr. Kohli the next available manager-trainee position and give him nearly $6,000 in back pay. She also told the company to revise its "no-beard" policy to accommodate people whose religious beliefs prohibit shaving if they're willing to wear a beard net, as Mr. Kohli was."

There were several reasons to look forward to the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra's final concert of the 2006-2007 season. One of the main reasons was the appearance of violinist Jennifer Koh as soloist. The last time Koh, an artist trained at Oberlin College and Philadelphia's Curtis Institute, appeared with the ASO was 1999, when she collaborated with conductor Leslie Dunner in a Barber violin concerto that was the highlight of the former maestro's tenure with the orchestra. News of her return to Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts to play a Sibelius concerto with Jose-Luis Novo on the podium did not go unnoticed.

When Prabhjot S. Kohli came to the United States from India 12 years ago, he believed that acceptance of his race and religion "would be no problem because it's the most democratic, multicultural society."Ten years and $20,000 in legal bills later, he has discovered it can be costly to win acceptance on his terms.Kohli, 59, has spent a decade fighting Domino's Pizza over its corporate policy banning beards on employees, and the fight is not over. An appeals court has told a Baltimore County judge to decide whether a Human Relations Commission appeals board was correct in finding that Domino's illegally discriminated.

Prabhjot S. Kohli thought he would get the job at Domino's Pizza he has wanted for more than eight years -- a job that Maryland courts ruled was rightfully his.But despite Maryland Human Relations Commission and Court of Special Appeals decisions in his favor in a long-running religious discrimination case, Mr. Kohli was turned away by Domino's again yesterday.The legal battle centers on Mr. Kohli's beard. The 58-year-old Catonsville resident, who emigrated from India in 1985, is a Sikh whose religion requires followers not to cut their body hair because it is a gift from God.But Domino's Pizza says no beards.

It's good business, not illegal religious discrimination, for Domino's Pizza to refuse to hire a Catonsville man who wouldn't obey the company's grooming rules because he would be excommunicated from his religion if he shaved his beard, the Maryland Human Relations Commission has ruled.Domino's policy against beards doesn't violate the state's laws against religious discrimination because Domino's surveys indicated customers would rather buy their pizza from clean-shaven workers, the commission ruled this week.

Severino L. "Bino" Koh, a founder and associate dean of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County College of Engineering, died Thursday of complications from heart surgery at Washington Hospital Center. The Columbia resident was 77. "His leadership was significant because it reflected both his great enthusiasm and humanity," UMBC President Freeman A. Hrabowski III said of Dr. Koh, who was the College of Engineering's chief academic administrator from 1985 to 1991 and professor of mechanical engineering until his retirement in 2002.

Most of the visiting violinists who have soloed with the Annapolis Symphony in recent years haven't been too thrilling.True, there was a hot Bruch G minor dished up by Canadian fiddler Lara St. John last spring.But earlier last season, Livia Sohn gave a generic, homogenized account of the Sibelius Concerto. And in years past, we've heard concertmasters from some of America's best orchestras play intelligently and collegially, but without much pizazz.Uri Pianka, concertmaster of the Houston Symphony, was the best of the lot.The worst performance was the flat, tentative Brahms Concerto played by Baltimore Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Herbert Greenberg in 1992, Gisele Ben-Dor's first season here.
