Fabian Homer Kolker, an international activist who brought Jews out of the former Soviet Union, died Tuesday of complications of diabetes at Sinai Hospital. He was 85 and lived in Pikesville. Long a passionate advocate of the state of Israel, he spent 30 years defending the rights of Jews in the former U.S.S.R. "He worked night and day to get people free from Russia," said Audrey Levine, a friend who lives in Baltimore County. "He did it for freedom." He first became interested in the plight of Soviet Jews in 1960 when he met with philosopher Bertrand Russell, who told him how families were being repressed in the Soviet Union.

IHAVE HEARD a lot of horror stories about drug addiction over the years, and the one Sheila Helgerson tells goes into the Top Ten of testaments to the power of heroin over a man's life. Helgerson, executive director of Earl's Place, a transitional home on East Lombard Street for men trying to move from homelessness and drug abuse to a life of normality and recovery, tells of a former client named Clayton whose right arm became so infected from years of shooting heroin that doctors had to amputate it. According to Helgerson, Clayton, who is in his 30s, had at least two failed attempts at recovery.

Coach of the YearMark Potter, Archbishop Curley: Potter guided the Friars to their third straight unbeaten season and third Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference title in a row. With three-year players Chad Kardian, John Bruni and Brandon Scarfield -- all seniors -- as the driving force, Curley has lost only twice in 34 matches as a team in four years. While Potter didn't have a dominant player, he got the most out of a balanced squad that featured several multi-sport athletes whom were used to winning.
