Bel Air's Jacque LaFleur had a little time to kill before the Bobcats' basketball game with C. Milton Wright on Jan. 19, so she decided to total her career points. She found out that she needed only 28 more to become the first girl in school history to reach 1,000. The discovery surprised her, but no one else. "I walked down and told my parents and they smiled and said, `Everybody knows -- [coach Valerie] Cooper, your teammates, everybody but you. They didn't want to tell you, because they didn't want to put any pressure on you.' " That night, LaFleur, who averages 17.3 points per game, scored 16 to reach 988, but snow has put her quest for the last 12 on hold ever since.

Joseph LaFleur's work in Sri Lanka never made the evening news - he never bandaged gashes, gave water to babies or pitched tents for the homeless. But the Bel Air man's work behind the scenes had an impact. His low-profile effort among high-ranking Sri Lankan officials helped restructure a bare-bones emergency operations office so overwhelmed by the December tsunami that initially it could not track the more than 30,000 citizens to get aid to them. "He clearly was able to pull together a major, critical organization," said Brent Woodworth, worldwide manager for IBM's crisis response team.
