Fall approaches, bringing chrysanthemums in all their splendor.Big deal.I am allergic to the most handsome of fall flowers. Show me a mum and head for the hills. My reaction is swift and violent. I sneeze. I wheeze. I break out in a sweat.I've been this way since fifth grade when I lost the class spelling bee. The word I missed was chrysanthemum. The teacher gave me three cracks at it. I struck out. Then I cried. In class.More than 30 years later, I've still not fully recovered. Sometimes when I see mums, I tremble, stammer and hyperventilate.

A federal appeals court overturned the sentence of a Baltimore police officer convicted of taking kickbacks from a tow truck company, ruling that a lower court was wrong in how it assigned a dollar value to the scheme. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Officer Kelvin Quade Manrich, 44, should be sentenced again. "Hopefully, it will result in a lower sentence," said Bruce A. Johnson Jr. the attorney who represented Manrich in the appeal. Manrich pleaded guilty to counts of conspiracy and extortion under color of official right after five days of trial last year.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Father Time came disguised as Jack Nicklaus, swinging a golf club, not a scythe, with the near magic of all those glorious yesteryears. It was a personal threat to turn back the clock. He pressed on, pushed himself to extract the maximum and then the inevitable He could jump no higher. The top of the leader board was out of reach. But the valiant demonstration produced by this semi-middle-aged man was the most imposing story line of this, the 62nd Masters Tournament.Jack, not so nimble and not so quick, didn't win, but came precariously close to staging what would have been golf's most startling upset in history.

An intriguing new Internet adventure promises to drag players into their own versions of "The Game," the 1997 Kafkaesque cinematic thriller in which the main character receives a birthday present of pranks that turn sinister and malicious. Like the protagonist, played by Michael Douglas, subscribers to the Electronic Arts release of "Majestic" (www.MajesticTheGame. com) will find their real lives invaded by outsiders who prod them into action inside an expanding conspiracy. Unlike the film, "Majestic" will be played across the technological landscape of modern life - through e-mail, voice mail, faxes, Internet video clips, phone calls and hundreds of fake and real Web sites.

Two brothers whose Rosedale auto body shop became the focus of a federal investigation into widespread corruption in the Baltimore Police Department were sentenced to prison Wednesday. Hernan Alexis Moreno, 32, of Rosedale and Edwin Javier Mejia, 29, of Middle River received prison terms of 33 months and two years, respectively, for paying officers to bring them business. The kickbacks scheme was uncovered last year. Their sentences conclude a federal case that sullied the reputation of the Police Department, implicating roughly 60 officers and resulting in 15 being sentenced in federal court to prison terms between eight and 42 months.

This coming week offers a chance to visit two worthy Maryland landmarks. The normally off-limits Gibson Island Club will be open, and you can enjoy a lunch overlooking the Magothy. And I paid an advance visit to the Shrine of St. Anthony at Folly Quarter, a remarkable Roman Catholic monastery complex in western Howard County. Being a fan of pre-World War II buildings and architecture, I opted for a preview of the 1931 monastery, which is open daily for Masses, confessions and other functions.

Before he went out last Wednesday to arrest 15 of the officers charged in the Majestic towing scandal, the police commissioner of Baltimore attended a morning retirement ceremony. It was for a cop who had had a long and honorable career and who, a few years ago, risked it all to expose some bad police work within the ranks. The farewell for Mike Andrew, who retired as a lieutenant colonel after nearly 38 years of service to the people of this city, took place in the commissioner's board room first thing in the morning.

In The Majestic, the indisputably gifted Jim Carrey shows the side of him that just wants to be loved - the Riddler on Ritalin, the Mask unmasked. And it turns out to be stultifying. In the latest sentimental pile-driver from director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile), Carrey plays Peter Appleton, a Hollywood screenwriter fired from his studio in 1951 after he is accused of being a Communist. He gets in his car, drives it off a bridge to avoid a furry creature, crashes, and washes up near a small Northern California town that accepts him as a long-lost local hero.

The King and I, Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical tale of a 19th-century English widow who travels to Siam with her young son to teach the ruler's children, receives royal treatment by 2nd Star Productions. The 1951 Broadway masterwork endures because of its exotic setting, great score conveying the East-meets-West theme, and comedy and warmth in the culture clash between the Victorian-era schoolmistress and the leader who strives to improve his kingdom. 2nd Star's version offers the excitement of a first-rate musical production, along with something seldom heard on today's Broadway: a 22-member orchestra in the pit. Director Jane B. Wingard, who serves as producer and set designer, brings a warm understanding to this work.
