TCKelly McCloskey never approaches a challenge at less than 100 percent. Her mind and her body won't allow it.Whether it's playing center-halfback in field hockey, running laps at practice or applying herself in the classroom, McCloskey must go full-throttle at all times. Otherwise, she feels cheated."I get that from my parents," said McCloskey, a 1989 graduate of Severna Park High. "They were always telling me that it doesn't matter if you succeed, as long as you try your hardest. That way, you can't be disappointed with yourself."

Carroll County's Board of Elections lost its "detail guru" last week when Rosemary McCloskey retired as director, after 25 years of staying on top of the technological and legal changes associated with the election process.Since 1972, McCloskey has kept up with all the important policies and laws, old and new. She has been a walking encyclopedia, say her colleagues, the person who always gets paged for a quick, correct answer."She has experienced so many changes that she can rely on her experience, and so can we," said Pat Matsko, who worked with McCloskey for almost 11 years and is currently the acting elections director.

James B. McCloskey's naive folk paintings combine elements of the familiar with historical reference and whimsical overtones: Union soldiers marching in front of a multicolored row of houses that might exist today; Harper's Ferry viewed by a group of farm animals that look as if they had halted in contemplation of the scene.McCloskey is one of the artists represented in the Folk Art Gallery's 10th anniversary show this month. Others include folk fantasist Bogdan Miscevic, painted furniture maker Lee Milefsky and glass painter Ralph Auf der Heide.

WESTON, Conn. -- Robert McCloskey was living on Myrtle Street in Boston and each morning walked through Copley Square and up Huntington Avenue to his art class on St. Botolph Street. First, he had to walk across the Public Garden, which was a favorite place of his.He did not yet have the idea for his small and famous book that is set there. Fifty years later, however, the story he wrote and the pictures he drew have become so well known that many Americans who have never heard of Oliver Twist know Mr. and Mrs. Mallard and their offspring, Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack.

PHILADELPHIA - On a Friday afternoon in June, the telephone rang in the cramped offices of Centurion Ministries in Princeton, N.J. Somebody answered and, in the mildly chaotic atmosphere that pervades the place, yelled: "Paul's on the phone." Jim McCloskey sat forward at his desk and grabbed the receiver. "Hi, Paul," he said. Pause. "Reversed and remanded?" A grin spread over McCloskey's face. "That's terrific!" Paul Casteleiro, a Hoboken, N.J., defense lawyer, was passing on news of a long-awaited court ruling.

PRINCETON, N.J. - When a man found guilty of murdering an 11-year-old girl with an ice pick was freed, James C. McCloskey celebrated. He was thrilled, too, when a convicted cop killer got out of prison, ecstatic when a man jailed for raping, mutilating and murdering a woman was ordered off death row and sent back to his family. He was happy because the convicts were innocent, and he is the man who freed them. A former Princeton theology student, McCloskey is a minister to the despised.

Frank McCloskey, 64, an outspoken champion of Bosnia during his 12 years in Congress, died Sunday in Bloomington, Ind., of bladder cancer. He represented southwestern Indiana's 8th District in the House from 1983 to 1995. Mr. McCloskey made several trips to Bosnia during his years in Congress, and called in 1992 for selective air strikes against Serb forces if they continued their siege of Bosnia-Herzegovina. He later criticized the Clinton administration's handling of the Bosnian conflict and called for the resignation of then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher, warning that Serbs were committing genocide in Bosnia.

Standing in the cockpit of his sailboat with cold rain and wind hitting his face, Vic McCloskey remembers the instant he got the idea to switch to powerboating. "I'm in the rain feeling miserable and a trawler passes me," McCloskey remembered. "The captain is in the pilot house, wearing short sleeves and drinking a cup of coffee. I thought to myself, these guys know something we don't know." So after more than 40 years of sailing, McCloskey purchased a powerboat, a trawler. And McCloskey is not alone, said Rick Franke, a spokesman for the U.S. Sailboat Show.

That report you thought was so important two weeks ago: You must get back to it, but it seems irrelevant now. Your child's birthday party needs to be planned, but who can focus on that? Your friend wants to share a joke, but laughing seems so insensitive. For those lucky enough not to have a relative or friend hurt or killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, it might seem that by now life should have returned to normal. But of course it hasn't. Mental health authority Heidi McCloskey from the Institute of Living in Hartford, Conn.

Deepwater fishing is the most hazardous of all principal callings. Fishermen who don't drown can expect an old age of severe arthritis and injury pain. Yet the urge to haul fish aboard a boat, with its prospect of gain, continues down the millennia. In Chesapeake Bay, the word is watermen.William McCloskey first dropped lines there more than half a century ago; by now, he has managed to experience the life of a fisherman on most of the sea world's grandest banks ` the continental shelves off Newfoundland, Norway and Alaska; Japan and Chile, New Zealand and Indonesia.
