Baltimore electrician Tim Coleman Sr. was out of a job when he went looking for work in Las Vegas nearly six years ago. When he took his son, Tim Jr., with him, the father had no idea his loss would turn into the son's gain. "Tim never really played organized sports, but he was very athletic and looking for something physical to keep him busy," said Tim Sr. "We made some calls and wound up at a boxing gym run by Richard Steele." A natural in the ring, the younger Coleman, then 14, met and trained alongside such future world champions as Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Zab Judah.

On paper, the heavyweight fight between Hasim Rahman (31-2) and Marion Wilson (11-31-3) for the state title at Martin's West on March 1 appears to be a classic mismatch. Records, however, can be deceiving. Rahman, 27, has been ranked as high as No. 3 in the world, while Wilson has always been cast as an "opponent." Rahman, a Baltimorean, built his impressive record, which includes 26 knockouts, against a list of relatively obscure rivals. His two most meaningful fights -- against David Tua and, most recently, against Oleg Maskaev, ended with Rahman being counted out and dropped from the ratings.

At a time when 40-year-old former champions Larry Holmes and George Foreman are still ranked among contenders, it is surprising that a future young heavyweight with a 16-1 record can escape attention.But that has been the case with Jade Scott, 24, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native who will fight Marion Wilson (9-5), of Hillcrest Heights, Md., in the feature bout at Martin's West on Tuesday night.A stylish boxer who gives a fair impersonation of Muhammad Ali with his quick hands and movement, Scott, 24, also packs enough pop in his punches to have stopped 14 opponents.

I applaud the action that Gov. Martin O'Malley has taken on the University of Maryland environmental law clinic and its legal pursuit of the Hudson farm family. There are now hundreds of farm families in Maryland that live in fear that they will be the next farm to be put in the brink of bankruptcy. The Hudsons made a mistake. The Maryland Department of Environment, the state's environmental protection agency, was involved, the problem was assessed, corrected and a fine was levied and paid.

Sometime after 11 tonight, Baltimore heavyweight Hasim Rahman will step into the same Atlantic City boxing ring he was literally knocked out of in early November. Russia's Oleg Maskaev (19-2, 14 knockouts), the man whose right hand punched Rahman through the ropes and nearly into the laps of ringside HBO commentators, also will step into that same ring - but it won't be against Rahman. Rahman (32-2, 26) will take on South Africa's World Boxing Union champion, Corrie Sanders, (36-1, 26)
