This Laurel Redskins business is getting serious.I say that not because of the Laurel Redskins caps and T-shirts I saw being purchased yesterday at Carter's Pro Shop on historic Main Street.I say it because the evidence continues to grow that Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke really is going to build a new stadium for his NFL team hard by Laurel Race Course.Maybe I should have taken Cooke more seriously when he phoned me at home one evening last month.He called -- it was the first time we had ever spoken -- to complain about something I had written in that day's Evening Sun. Actually, to complain about something Jim Murray had written about Cooke in his autobiography and I had referred to in my column.

The school, funded by the government of Saudi Arabia, has stirred a rancorous debate in this Loudon County community of 8,600.On one side are those who say the academy will be a good neighbor and is being unjustly politicized by anti-Arab opponents.

Health officials took steps yesterday toward spraying pesticide on the uninhabited Montgomery County island where malaria-infected mosquitoes have been found, as medical personnel tested workers employed on the island for the disease. Pesticide could be sprayed as early as Wednesday over Selden Island, a 400-acre tract where researchers found malaria-infected mosquitoes in traps, said Lynn Frank, chief of public health services for Montgomery County. Frank said health officials are meeting with environmental groups this week to alert them to plans by Maryland and Virginia to spray the pesticide naled from a Maryland Department of Agriculture plane.

Jack Watkins, who once made a daily point of greeting his neighbors, was finally so alienated from his friends and family that it took seven years before anyone knew the 75-year-old was missing, much less dead. No one reported his May 1996 disappearance, and not even his stepdaughters came looking for him. They were cut out of his life, they said, by the much younger woman he'd taken up with, a woman he told the world he planned to marry. Then he vanished. Police found his emaciated body almost immediately, stuffed inside a 31-inch-long steamer trunk and left to rot beside a Loudon County, Va., trash can near the Appalachian Trail.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Kili Lefotu, the Washington Redskins rookie offensive guard who was taken to a local hospital after losing consciousness in his dormitory room Wednesday night, was in stable condition yesterday, according to Bubba Tyer, the team's director of sports medicine. The chain of events regarding Lefotu's situation disclosed by Tyer differed from those initially announced after practice Wednesday night by Redskins coach Joe Gibbs. Tyer said that Lefotu called 911 after feeling ill and was conscious when a local EMT unit arrived, but then passed out. Gibbs had said that Lefotu had been found unconscious.
