Catherine Mitchem and her husband expected their home addition to be done by the time they got back to Columbia from an overseas assignment in Africa. Instead, unpacked boxes tower in their basement, mounds of dirt and chunks of hardened concrete dot the side yard, and a black, plastic silt shield encloses the backyard. They paid a $73,000 down payment for a new family room, a breakfast nook and an expanded master bedroom that are still just a dream, she said. "We can't believe we're in the situation we're in," said Mitchem, a technical writer and consultant.

Drama of `Democracy' Creating the play Democracy: A Work in Progess was a "democratic process," playwright Don Thompson has said. The show, which examines democracy throughout history, was developed by the Maryland Ensemble Theatre of Frederick, then scripted by Thompson. It opens tomorrow at the Swirnow Theater in the Mattin Center at the Johns Hopkins University. Directed by Tad James, the production incorporates multi-media elements with monologues and scenes. "It tackles the idea of what is democracy and are we doing it?"

Pops Mensah-Bonsu just sat three games. Charlie Villanueva was hit for six in 2003. Will Randolph Morris even play for Kentucky this season? College players can test the NBA waters and return to campus if their draft prospects aren't good. The problem comes when they let an agent or team pick up their expenses at a workout. The NCAA cops make kids pay for that no-no, by reimbursing the benefits they received and serving prorated suspensions. Josh Boone got his chance at Connecticut two years ago when Villanueva was ruled ineligible for his attendance at an NBA tryout.

WASHINGTON -- George Washington coach Karl Hobbs could not recall it happening. Junior guard Danilo Pinnock, however, does have a memory of an opponent playing harder than the Colonials. "The last time I can say that happened was my freshman year, in the NIT, against Virginia," Pinnock said. "That's the last time I can honestly say we didn't play hard. We addressed that. We don't play like that anymore." GW responded in 2004-05 with its first Atlantic 10 Conference tournament title, a precursor to what has been the best season in Colonials' history.
