It could well have been Howard County's Kangaroo Kids auditioning for television's "America's Got Talent" several weeks ago instead of a rival team from the Midwest. The Colorado-based precision rope jumpers waited 10 hours to perform on the popular summer program, but errors soon set off the dreaded triple buzzers from the judges. In less than a minute, they found themselves trooping back off the stage beneath three illuminated red X's, said local coach James McCleary. He commiserated with the other team's bad fortune as if his own team had been axed.

It's that time of year again, when summer has finally wound down. Soon, we'll all retreat indoors as darkness falls too early and it gets too chilly.No wonder we have Halloween: we need one last blast of fun and naughtiness before we retire decorously to home. No running indoors, no playing ball, no loud music, no water battles: how boring life inside seems.We have Christmas and Hanukkah to look forward to, but let's face it, we have to think to others then.It's nice, but not the same as playing water tag with food coloring.

It took just a few minutes for Jann Tamburello's practiced hands to prod and pull the lump of clay on her potter's wheel at the Columbia Association Art Center into a smooth, round bowl. But before it is complete, the bowl will have dry a little bit, have its base formed and edges trimmed, be fired in a kiln for 12 hours, be covered in glaze, be fired for 18 more hours and come out intact. Before the art center opens its doors for "Empty Bowls: A Community Event to Help Fight Hunger in Howard County" on Feb. 3, that process has to happen more than 300 times so every guest can select an original bowl to take home.

The Simpson children, Scott and Amy, joined Kangaroo Kids, a precision jump-rope team in Howard County, at a young age. They quickly found success that has led them and their parents to competitions out of state. Scott is now a ninth-grader at Hammond High who plays in the school band, is on the JV soccer team and still finds time for jump-rope practices.

WHEN HE became co-coach of the Kangaroo Kids two decades ago, Jim McCleary saw teaching kids to jump rope skillfully, which is what the Kids are about, as an exercise thing. It was aerobic, good for you and a fun way to get kids off their duffs and into fitness. World travel, snorkeling in Australian waters, experiencing aboriginal culture -- they never occurred to McCleary. Neither did being known as a world-class coach in rope jumping. But here the longtime Howard County physical education teacher is this weekend, back home after 13 days Down Under, having guided the U.S. national team in world championship competition that attracted 360 jumpers from 15 countries.
