CONGRATULATIONS to Anne Tobaka, Peter Tobaka, Libby Whetstone, Ann Morris, Ruth Konik and everyone else who participated in the Senior Stroll/Fun Run organized by the Coalition of Geriatric Services (COGS) and the Maryland Senior Olympics. The seniors walked the 2.4-mile path around Centennial Lake as part of the event, said Jeanette Lazarofsky, the coalition's administrator. "Some people jogged, but the majority of the people did stroll," Lazarofsky said. She singled out Anne Tobaka for praise, noting that the 82-year-old walked the entire loop, using her walker.

In a second-floor classroom in an old elementary school, the air hung heavy with the scent of perfume, last-minute nail polish and too much aerosol hairspray. Racks of gowns and dresses looked as if they had been ransacked, and every tabletop was a jumble of shoes, makeup, pantyhose, mirrors and oodles of pearl and rhinestone jewelry. "It's show time," pageant director Sonia Mittelstedt announced. "I have to go be with my girls." Her "girls" - all 60 or older - were contestants in yesterday's Ms. Maryland Senior America Pageant.

In his four years at Notre Dame, point guard Eric Atkins has gone from being a steady freshman who came off the bench for a veteran team to the unquestioned senior leader - and now unlikely leading scorer - on a young team searching to find itself in its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 6-foot-2, 182-pound Atkins, who grew up in Columbia and played at Mount St. Joseph, recently saw his role change from facilitator to first option after Notre Dame's leading scorer, fellow senior guard Jerian Grant, was suspended by the university last month for an academic issue.

HONOLULU -- Just about everyone who has watched Maryland senior forward Keith Booth perform this season considers him a legitimate All-America candidate and the unquestioned leader of the unbeaten Terps.But mention his pro prospects, and you will create a heated debate among NBA scouts, at least seven of whom were in attendance at the University of Hawaii on Friday night when Maryland stretched its record to 10-0 with a 66-63 victory over Pitt in the opening round of the Rainbow Classic.Unlike former teammate Joe Smith, who was destined to be a high lottery pick when he left college after his sophomore year, Booth has no guarantee of playing professionally next year.

The season opener for Aberdeen's No. 1 girls basketball team came against a Milford Mill team that had hoped to avenge its loss in last season's Class 3A North regional championship. The Millers, however, will have to wait until March and the next regional playoffs to get that revenge. Once again, the Eagles' 6-foot-3 center, Brionna Jones, presented a challenge the Millers could not overcome as she scored 21 points and had 17 rebounds in leading Aberdeen to a 67-52 victory in the season opener for both teams Thursday night at the Beast of the East Showcase at St. Frances.

On a November night in 2007, Maryland recruit Joe Vellano sat in the Byrd Stadium stands as a high school senior and watched the Terps upset Matt Ryan-led Boston College to gain its second win of the season over a Top 10 team. Vellano enrolled at Maryland the next year. The defensive lineman - who is listed as questionable heading into his final home game Saturday against No. 10 Florida State - went on to become an All-Atlantic Coast Conference performer and a second-team Walter Camp All-American in 2011.

This is not at all how Maryland hoped to send off its 17 seniors - mired in a four-game losing streak and trying to make a final stand in a season characterized by injuries and two particularly wrenching losses. After Maryland went 2-10 last season, senior starters Joe Vellano, A.J. Francis , Kenneth Tate, Kevin Dorsey and others imagined that their final seasons would coincide with a turnaround performance punctuated by a bowl game. But if college is partly about learning life lessons, then this year's was that things don't always go as expected.

For people who want to live past 100, the first step is taking a whole bunch more steps. A recent survey found half of all centenarians are exercising almost every day. Most are walking, but many also are lifting weights, practicing yoga, biking or playing group sports. There are an estimated 72,000 centenarians across the country, and the number is expected to grow to 600,000 by 2050, according to UnitedHealthcare, which conducted the poll. To get into this group, others who work with seniors and some who are in their advanced years say, senior citizens should tie on some sneakers and get moving.

She concentrated on Hawaiian routines and has spent decades mastering the nuances of the dance forever associated with America's island state. She often performs in traditional grass skirt before an audience or at a family luau. "I love the hula," said May, whose first name translates to "love" in her native Filipino. "It tells a lovely story in a feminine way. " Now, at 65, she is the reigning Ms. Maryland Senior America and is practicing her signature dance for the national pageant in October in Atlantic City, N.J.
