Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard lived up to his intimidating reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the NFL, knocking New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley out of Sunday's AFC championship game with a devastating fourth-quarter tackle. During the Ravens' 28-13 AFC victory at Gillette Stadium, Ridley was down on the ground for several scary minutes before finally walking off the field under his own power. "Bernard, man, he's a hitter," Ravens free safety Ed Reed said.

LANDOVER -- Washington Bullets guard Michael Adams has everybody talking. Or is it gushing?"Michael Adams gives us a whole new dimension," said Bullets center Charles Jones. "His hustle. His three-point shooting. He's all over the court, just like a little fly. He's everywhere. You look up and he's there. He pesters guys on defense. On offense, he pushes the ball up the court. He can take it himself or create for the other guys. He makes things easy for A.J. [English], Harvey [Grant], even Pervis [Ellison]

LANDOVER -- Once upon a time, Michael Adams would have paid the Washington Bullets to play for them.The Bullets cut Adams, who lives in Mitchellville, twice in 1986 before he caught on, giving the team a spark off the bench with his lightning quick moves and fearless three-point shooting.However, the Bullets gave up on Adams, throwing him as an afterthought into a package with the long-forgotten Jay Vincent to Denver for Darrell Walker and Mark Alarie.Operating in the helter-skelter systems of Nuggets coaches Doug Moe and Paul Westhead, Adams saw his game explode, as he finished last season as the NBA's sixth-leading scorer (26.5)

Stacey Nicholson of the United Methodist Church in Irvington offered a special prayer for parishioner Wes Unseld, who has suffered all season trying to piece together his injury-riddled Washington Bullets.Prayers went unanswered.

Rosa V. Adams, a homemaker and longtime resident of Sparrows Point and Turners Station, died Tuesday of complications from dementia at Levindale Geriatric Center and Hospital. She was 85. She was born Rosa Cragway in Bent Creek, Va., and moved with her family to Sparrows Point in 1928 when her father took a job as a laborer at Bethlehem Steel Corp. "She grew up in the 800 block of J St., one of two streets designated for blacks on Sparrows Point, the town Bethlehem built for its workers," said her son, Michael Adams, an assistant city editor for The Sun. "She attended an all-black elementary school within walking distance of the sprawling steel mill, but Sparrows Point did not have a black high school, and there were none elsewhere in Baltimore County," he said.

BOWIE -- Since leaving Memphis State in 1986 to make his way in pro basketball, point guard Andre Turner has played for seven NBA teams.Because he's never stayed in one place long enough to call it home, it was surprising that Turner passed up a guaranteed contract to play with the Philadelphia 76ers this season.Instead, tonight when the 76ers visit the Capital Centre, Turner will be wearing a Washington Bullets uniform, trying to get enough playing time to convince coach Wes Unseld he is worth keeping when top draft pick LaBradford Smith leaves the injured list in the next few weeks.

It was a season that will be remembered for the NBA's discovery of defense, but somehow the Washington Bullets missed the boat. The team's average yield of 107.7 points was the second worst in the league, and the Bullets were the only team that allowed opponents to shoot better than 50 percent (50.8).So Washington went big and with defense in mind in the 1994 NBA draft, selecting 6-foot-9 forward Juwan Howard with the No. 5 pick overall and 7-1 Jim McIlvaine, the nation's top shot blocker, in the second round.

The Snake River, as photographed by Ansel Adams, is a shining ribbon that curves through stands of virgin forest toward a distant mountain whose summit is lit by electric flashes of St. Elmo's fire. The image is one of the most dramatic landscape photographs ever produced of the American West, and it became one of the signature pictures that helped make Adams famous even among people who knew little about photography. By the time of his death in 1984 at the age of 82, Adams was the most beloved photographer in America, admired as much for his tireless advocacy for environmental conservation as for his luminous, heroic photographs of a pristine wilderness that was fast disappearing.
