It looked doubtful that the entire group of 40 third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls from Baltimore City's Edgewood Elementary would complete a mile run when they took the track last spring. One girl vomited. Other girls wiped away tears as they began to get muscle cramps midway through. But each girl finished. "It wasn't pretty," recalled Kaitlin Loftus, a math teacher at the school who trained the girls to get them prepared for the challenge. "But each girl wanted to complete the run. " She added: "It was amazing.

When walking off the field last year after the NCAA championship game at M&T Bank Stadium, Duke goalie Dan Loftus didn't think as much about the loss to Johns Hopkins as he did about his teammates. "I thought about having played with some of the greatest players ever at the highest level," Loftus said. "It was a great experience, and I had no idea we were coming back." Top seed Duke (18-1) is back again, and so is Loftus, as the Blue Devils prepare to meet No. 5 Johns Hopkins (10-5) today in the national semifinals.

When I was in junior high I saw an older student kill a teacher. We were walking down the hall when the teacher, coming from behind, tapped the young man on the shoulder. He whirled around, threw a punch, and hit the teacher in the face. The teacher died when his head smacked the floor. It's vivid in my memory. I can see it; I remember the student's name. It still causes a chill to run down my spine.One problem: The tragedy did occur, but at a high school across town, and several years earlier, when I would have been only 9 years old. I had lived, somewhat uneasily, in the grip of this false memory for years.

In a one-room mud house with a tin roof on the outskirts of Nairobi, Matthew Loftus sat with 6-year-old Vera, whose mouth was infected with sores. The frail child was bundled up in a long sweater and hat, shivering in the arms of a nursing student. While tending to the AIDS-stricken child in the summer of 2005, Loftus found his calling. "I remember feeling helplessness. I couldn't do anything for her but to pray for her and comfort her," the Harford County resident said. "I felt like with the right training, I could help her and help people like her by working with them and helping to change their community."

The United States has covertly tried to destroy Israel, and for decades the Republican Party has politically associated with ex-Nazis living in the United States, John J. Loftus alleges in his controversial new book, "The Secret War Against the Jews.""This book is really a shocking recitation of the things we've done to the only democracy in the Middle East," Mr. Loftus said in a telephone interview last week. "Publicly, we're Israel's ally, but in private we do whatever the oil companies and Arabs suggest."

And when we believe a crime has been committed, to turn that information over to the police."The Sun regrets the error.

Catholic girls soccer coach Eric Loftus saw the first big improvement on the first day of practice -- everyone showed up healthy. A year ago, the Cubs were never at full power. Injuries kept almost every girl sidelined for at least a few games. By the third week, the Cubs had to play the second half against eventual Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champion John Carroll with just 10 players. It especially hurt to lose striker Claudia Furman for eight games with a knee injury and center midfielder Steph Parker for a few games with nagging ailments.
