As captain of Westminster's girls basketball team, Beth Mahr knew all about the delicate matters facing a peer leader, so when she had the opportunity to attend a leadership conference for student athletes last summer, she jumped at the chance. "The kinds of things that go on in school - the partying and the drama between girlfriends and boyfriends or, especially on a girls sports team, the drama between other girls - I think that definitely has a huge impact on the team, and as a captain and just a teammate it's very difficult to try and lead the rest of the team out of that direction," Mahr said.

A group including a legislator, a civil rights organization and two attorneys called for a moratorium on Baltimore police Taser use after a 19-year-old's death at a city hospital. George V. King, a Charles County foster youth living in a Baltimore residential facility, was a patient at Good Samaritan Hospital on May 7 when he began fighting with hospital security staff. The hospital called city police officers for assistance and one officer used his Taser five times to subdue the man, according to the King family attorney and a law enforcement source.

So far, authorities believe James von Brunn, the Maryland man accused of killing a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, acted alone. But the anti-Semitic and racist views he has expressed in decades of rants - in court testimony, on his Web site and in a self-published book - represent the convictions of a deeply rooted community of extremists now taking advantage of technology to attract new recruits. At least 13 such outfits now operate in Maryland, according to trackers of hate groups.

Leon Day would not have minded seeing his grandson with a baseball in his hand. A book in his hand, however, would have impressed him more. "He always told us: 'Pick up a book and read. Get an education; they can't take that away from you. Knowledge is power,' " recalled Sarah Newkirk Clark, the daughter of the Hall of Fame pitcher and Negro league legend. Clark's 15-year-old son, Leon Day Newkirk, seems to have absorbed the lesson. He frequently picks up and reads honor-roll certificates, academic awards, college scholarship offers, and, last month, an invitation to attend the annual National Young Leaders Conference this summer on Capitol Hill.

ATLANTA -- The Southern Christian Leadership Conference managed to save itself from a self-inflicted death blow last week. After hearing from more sensible members, conference President Charles Steele retreated from his pledge to "honor" Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who stands accused of bankrolling a dogfighting ring, at its convention in Atlanta. The old-line civil rights organization closed out its annual gathering without doing anything so foolish. But the organization, like similar groups, is still dying a slow death.
