To Jennifer Vick, being on the sidelines doesn't mean you are out of the game - the fashion game. Vick, a Glen Arm resident, spent years watching her sons, Porter, 13, and Mason, 15, play lacrosse. While at the games, she noticed more and more girls playing the sport. But they often showed up to practice and games wearing "boys' stuff. " "The fit was not good, and the clothes were not relevant," she said. Vick also saw a lack of lacrosse-style clothing geared toward sisters and mothers watching the games.

Ever wonder why your neighborhood streams and rivers look so muddy after a heavy rain? A recent survey of construction sites in the Baltimore area found less than a quarter of the exposed soil being worked had been properly protected from erosion. The survey, involving staff and volunteers from 22 different environmental and community groups, found widely varying but generally poor controls on mud pollution being used at building sites in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties.

If nothing else, the pilot for LAX proves one thing: Heather Locklear does romantic comedy as well as anyone on television this side of Debra Messing in Will & Grace. But, while that was perfect for her role in ABC's Spin City sitcom, is that a good thing given that her new NBC series about backstage life at Los Angeles International Airport is supposed to be a drama - particularly, a drama that opens with the suicide of the airport manager in the series premiere (tonight at 10 on WBAL , Channel 11)

Once again, new problems arise at our southern border simply because our federal legislators both past and present have failed to protect this vast border so businesses would have access to cheap labor ( "Shelter plan raises concern," June 11). The biggest losers are young black Americans, often due to poor educational opportunities and broken families. This whole dilemma was caused by our elected representatives who ignored the possibility of the calamity we now face. We have a plague that may be incurable, and it was caused by greed.
