Even from her sickbed, Denise Leatherman wanted to help plan for this month's "Soccer Against Cancer" campaign. In the spring, too weak to do anything more, she created a logo of a soccer ball inscribed with the slogan, "Play well and do good." The 6,000 young athletes of the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County have taken her advice to heart as they take to the fields wearing pink socks, shoelaces, nail polish and hair paint to raise money for breast cancer. Tomorrow and Sunday, they will hold a "Think Pink Weekend" -- an information fair at Covenant Park in Ellicott City.

E. Gordon Leatherman, an insurance executive and gifted carpenter who was active in Alcoholics Anonymous for more than 20 years, died May 12 at his Lutherville home of lung cancer. He was 70."Dad was the kind of person that new people in AA gravitated to," said Kerry Dunnington, one of his five children. "He was inspiring but very simplistic about how to get sober and stay sober. He believed very much in the serenity prayer."Born in Catonsville, Mr. Leatherman graduated from Catonsville High School in 1942.

In the tradition of another Harford County native who showed up every day to perform, Bucknell's Mike Leatherman never asked for a day off. Neither a hernia nor numerous leg injuries could end a streak of 44 consecutive games played that Leatherman, a senior from John Carroll, put together during the last four years. "I just felt like I should play through injuries every time they hit me," he said, sounding a little like the area's most famous ironman, Cal Ripken Jr. "Just strap on the helmet and go out and play.

No mosquitoes, no sharks, no dog poop, no noisy radios, no getting up at sunrise to stake claim to a grimy piece of sand.No freezing cold water, so New England was out. No wild surf, so Southern California was out. No overdevelopment, so Ocean City, Md., was out.Using rules like these, a University of Maryland geologist has rated America's 650 ocean beaches.He found the gems in places with strange-sounding names such as Kapula, Napoopoo and Bahai Honda. You need a plane ticket and a wallet full of cash to get from here to pearly sand so light it never gets hot, water so clear you can see your feet in it and waves so gentle you can swim forever.

At first glance, you might get the impression that Stephen Leatherman is an expert on beach erosion in Maryland.You might get that impression because he did his University of Virginia Ph.D. thesis on the Maryland shore, has been studying that shore for 20 years, and is currently the director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at the University of Maryland at College Park.But there is at least one person in this state who thinks he knows a lot more about beach erosion than Leatherman or any other Ph.D.

Florida is home to more than half of the nation's Top 10 beaches -- including Grayton Beach, the best spot in America for sun, sand, surf, safety and solitude, according to an annual rating by a leading beach expert.Located beside the Gulf of Mexico on the Florida Panhandle, Grayton Beach replaced Hapuna, Hawaii, on the 1994 Best Beaches Survey by Stephen Leatherman, director of the University of Maryland's Laboratory for Coastal Research."Grayton Beach is kind of the perfect beach, if there is one. It's a well maintained state recreational area, has good facilities for visitors, sugar white sand, a lake nearby and beautiful, clean aquamarine water," says Mr. Leatherman, a geologist who has been dubbed "Dr. Beach" by his colleagues.

Jeff Brauner of Baltimore likes Jersey beaches better than Maryland's: "The sand is whiter, finer, and the gradient into the ocean is gentler, making the surf gentler. They're so different. Is this weather-related?" No. Stephen "Dr. Beach" Leatherman, at Florida International University, says Jersey beaches have fine, quartz sand. We've dredged coarse, shelly, offshore sands onto our developed beaches to fight erosion. But, "the coarser the sand, the steeper the beach," he says. Try Assateague.

Siesta Key is for snobs. Sand snobs, that is. The sand of Siesta Beach is soft and smooth, like velvet beneath your toes, silk between your fingers. It stretches out in an expanse of white lapped by turquoise water, and even on warm days the sand is cool. In 2004, the Travel Channel named it Best Sand Beach, and it has appeared on the annual list of best U.S. beaches compiled by Stephen Leatherman, the Florida International University professor known as Dr. Beach. Leatherman, who has studied beaches around the globe, says Siesta Key boasts some of the "finest, whitest sand I've ever seen in the world."

This winter there is a new sport in town. On Sunday nights at the Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro Ice Rink in Patterson Park, a small group gets together to play sled hockey, a game primarily for disabled athletes. The group hopes to get a full-fledged adult team going here. This variety of ice hockey is fast, loud, graceful and sometimes harsh. A team comprises five players and a goalie, players swerve back and forth on the ice at top speeds, check each other and occasionally collide. To participate, players strap themselves to a seat mounted on a tubular sled with two metal blades screwed to the bottom.

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be a consumer product? You know, where your name and a product are one and the same. Like: "Who's got the keys to the Ford ... " or, "I pulled out my Buck knife ... " or, "He caught it on a Clouser minnow." It must be pretty cool. Except, of course, if the name on your birth certificate is Thomas Crapper and you go on to make the flush toilet. In 1983, Tim Leatherman took that risk when, at the urging of his college friend, Steve Berliner, he put his name on a multipurpose tool: a cross between a set of pliers and a knife.
