The campers formed two single-file lines and practiced a hip-hop dance exercise - kick-step-step, kick-step-step - from one side of the classroom to the other as pulsating beats reverberated off the walls. The dance lesson at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis came free of charge. The youngsters visit the hall each week during their time at a camp run by We Care and Friends, a nonprofit that offers support and resources for families in need. Maryland Hall officials have had a long-standing relationship with We Care and Friends founder Larry Griffin, who has had his campers stop by each week for an indoor, climate-controlled lunch.

I went to a grade school in New York state that took special pains not to channel girls' interests strictly into traditionally girl-type activities.Sports weren't offered, they were required, and the competition for a place on the girls' soccer and lacrosse teams was just as hot as for the boys' teams. (An 8-year-old California boy, a new soccer addict, recently said when I mentioned having played it myself at his age: "But you're a GIIRRRL!")If he saw me using a saw or chiseling out the slot for a shutter hinge, he might say the same, and I'd give smug thanks to that school, which required that girls as well as boys take shop.

Honoring the elite of Maryland athletes with a coveted place in their own Hall of Fame has become an ongoing ceremony dedicated to excellence. To the credit of the charter team that began this annual odyssey 37 years ago, the concept hasn't changed.Its membership is held exclusively for those born in Maryland, such as Babe Ruth and Al Kaline, or those who immigrated to this country and became naturalized citizens, as witness Johnny "Kid" Williams. What the Maryland Athletic Hall of Fame has held onto with strong conviction is the rules are applied the same way now as in 1956.

Since a memorial service at a sweltering, standing-room only Cole Field House was held a few days after Len Bias' death in June 1986, there has been little official connection between the former basketball All-American and the University of Maryland. But nearly three decades after his fatal cocaine overdose, and the fallout that led to significant changes at the school, Bias will formally be recognized by Maryland when he is inducted posthumously into the Terps' athletics Hall of Fame.

Some 30 artists set up their easels all over Annapolis this past week, from quiet back alleys to the lawn of the Maryland State House. Intrigued local residents stopped to chat or simply stare. "Need a model in the picture?" one man shouted from across the street to Karen Scannell, 40, a painter from Ireland. The artists came to Annapolis to compete for a $3,000 prize in an open-air painting contest. Organized by the Annapolis-based nonprofit Maryland Federation of Art, the competition celebrates "plein air" painting - that is, painting outside.
