Chuck Lightening fashioned an entirely inappropriate ending to Towson State's 99-97 victory over Lehigh at the Towson Center last night.Lightening's 19-footer from the right wing with five seconds left provided the Tigers (1-2) with their first win of the season. A dunk or post-up move would have been more fitting on a night when feast-or-famine pressure defense resulted in high shooting percentages and abundant turnovers for both teams.Lehigh (2-2) made 67.9 percent (38-56) of its field-goal attempts, but the Engineers turned it over 26 times.

Friday morning's torrential rain gave fans and handicappers at Pimlico's Black-Eyed Susan Day a much different race card than they had planned for. But by the time the showpiece Black-Eyed Susan Stakes ran under a clear blue sky Friday afternoon and the Counting Crows took the stage later that evening, the torrential downpours that Pimlico officials said dumped 2 1/4 inches of rain at the track were a distant memory. "The track is going to be fast [tomorrow]," Pimlico racing analyst Gabby Gaudet said from her trackside post Friday evening.

Here's the prevailing logic on Towson State basketball: Despite the loss of Kurk Lee, the Tigers will continue to win games in the backcourt thanks to Devin Boyd and Lewis Waller, but they will have their same old deficiencies up front.There is one fault, however, in that logic. It overlooks the very real prospect that Chuck Lightening could become a dominant player in the East Coast Conference. A 6-foot-5 junior forward, Lightening has waited his time with the books and the ball, and now he's ready to strike.

In response to Katherine Ambrose's complaints about the timing of The Sun's coverage of the MICA exhibit on Baltimore burlesque ( "Was Easter the right time for a two-age spread on burlesque in The Sun?" April 22), I suppose the paper should also refrain from reporting about murders and rape on religious holidays as well. Or anything this dear lady might find distasteful? Oh, I forgot. Murder and mayhem is fine but a woman's breasts are unacceptable! Who will think of the children?

If crunch time is reserved for those basketball artists whose best work is performed in the most critical moments, you can make a reservation for Chuck Lightening.Better yet, make that a reservation for Lightening and 15 or so of his fellow Towson State Tigers in the grand spectacle known as TC March Madness.Towson State scrawled its name on the NCAA's postseason register last evening with a pulsating 69-63 victory over Rider College to claim its second straight East Coast Conference championship and the automatic tournament bid that goes with it.The Tigers did it in typical style before a frothing crowd of 3,425 at the Towson Center and a national TV audience on ESPN.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Chuck Lightening did his job on one end of the court. He curtailed the scoring of Tennessee All-America candidate Allan Houston.But Lightening and Towson State paid a price for stopping Houston, said Tigers coach Terry Truax.Towson lost to Tennessee, 77-70, last night, as Lightening scored just six points, 12 points under his season average. The 6-foot-5 senior made two of 11 shots from the field and was little help to teammate Terrance Jacobs, who tied his career high with 29 points.

Caught with a couple of joints he didn't get the chance to light up, Eric Staton was ordered to appear before a Baltimore judge. Two weeks later, in a basement courtroom on North Avenue, prosecutors said they would drop the possession charge if Staton agreed to pick up trash for five hours. Staton, 42, hesitated before taking the deal. "Ten grams is nothing," he told a spectator during the hearing. "They should legalize that marijuana. " In recent years, Maryland has taken small steps to scale back laws against possession of marijuana.

The "Unhappy Halloween, Hon" (Nov. 3) commentary by Michael Cross-Barnet was a scream. Like a Holy Roman emperor or a demented totalitarian dictator, it dictated what was appropriate free speech for all times and all places. It also chastised the owner of Cafe Hon for apologizing for a Halloween depiction of a white person with a black face only twice and not at least three times. Moreover, the writer actually spelled out in several sentences what it deemed as the only appropriate wording of a theoretical third apology by the Cafe Hon . And what was the Hon's verbal trespass?

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post. This week, Faith Hicks discusses seafood. When you imagine a typical summer barbecue, does your mind immediately turn to hot dogs, burgers, steak and ribs? That's hardly a menu endorsed by cardiologists. Try making your summer diet lower in saturated fat and higher in heart-healthy omega 3 fats by adding seafood to your grilling repertoire. Grilling seafood may seem intimidating at first.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Faith Hicks weighs in on Super Bowl food. Imagine a typical Super Bowl party spread: fried chicken wings, meatballs, sour cream and cream cheese dips. This translates into a feast of meat and lots of fat, particularly saturated fat. It will probably be your dinner on gameday, but hardly a "Strive for Five" or "My Plate" meal.

A strange observation about our nation is reflected in a recent health department presentation to the Harford County Council, namely that our country is so wealthy that poor people are often overweight. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but even as the national and local economies have been on the downswing, it seems as though people in Harford County aren't going hungry. In a recent report to the county council, the county's health officer, Susan Kelly, said 60 percent of people in Harford County are either overweight or obese, a number that's been on the upswing for more than a decade.

The Maryland Terrapins chanted and bobbed their heads as they emerged from the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium to take on Navy in the season opener. "Yeah, it's on baby, ooh aah!" the players shouted in unison. If it looked like a scene from the high-school football movie "Remember the Titans," the players weren't apologizing. "We do that pretty much every time we come out of a tunnel, usually on away games," nose tackle A.J. Francis said. "There's not really a tunnel coming out of our [Byrd Stadium]

The Little Italy Open Air Film Festival is the granddaddy — or should we say the Godfather? — to a Maryland phenomenon that has sprouted from Johns Hopkins to Fells Point and from the Shops at Kenilworth to the Lakefront of Columbia. Think of the phenomenon as the spirit of drive-in movies leaving cars behind and nestling at urban intersections and suburban lakefronts, at mall parking lots and at neighborhood parks. They offer casual fun: Instead of drive-ins, walk-ins — just remember, in most cases, to bring your own blanket or chairs.

Take it easy on BP. Sure, it's tempting to join the public posse that wants the government to bring criminal charges against oil company executives. Or the environmentalists who'd like to end all offshore drilling. Or the Republicans (formerly the party of "Drill, baby, drill") who insist the Obama administration should be doing more. They all need to take a deep breath and count to three. Why three? Three is the average number of gallons of gas and oil products that we Americans — all 310 million of us — consume every day. We need our oil, lots of oil, and no foreseeable combination of windmills or solar panels or fiberglass insulation is going to change that.
