High school carpentry courses have given Paul "Pasha" Lippincott the skills to build a deck and a fence at his Towson home and the confidence to move ahead with a floor-to-ceiling renovation of the family kitchen. While completing his senior year and planning to pursue construction management in college, he also has gathered enough know-how and aplomb to demonstrate basic do-it-yourself tasks on BCPS-TV. The senior at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology just taped a segment for "So Easy a Kid Can Do It," a series that debuted Monday on the county schools' cable television channel.

A close political associate of Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker went to bat as a paid lobbyist last month for the promoter of Merriweather Post Pavilion, asking the executive to reconsider his plans to increase the county amusement tax.Mr. Ecker included the tax rise in the budget he unveiled April 16 but delayed its implementation until Oct. 1, after the Columbia pavilion closes for the season. The delay is expected to save the promoter about $150,000.Michael W. Davis, a Columbia lawyer who was co-chairman of Mr. Ecker's transition team and is chairman of a citizens' panel drafting an adequate public facilities ordinance, had written to Mr. Ecker April 12, asking him to discuss alternatives to the amusement tax increase.

GOING TO INDIANAPOLIS Memphis had only three losses this season, and two of them were to Duke and Texas. Aside from a late-season loss to UAB, the Tigers cruised through their Conference USA schedule. Led by the high-flying Rodney Carney, the Tigers play an up-tempo game that demands their opponents run the floor for a full 40 minutes. TEAM ON THE RISE A couple of months ago the Kansas Jayhawks looked like they might have trouble getting an NCAA bid. After a 10-6 start, Kansas has won 15 of its past 16 games.

"Ecology of Fear: Los Angeles and the Imagination of Disaster," by Mike Davis. Metropolitan Books. 466 pages. $25. Disaster buffs and die-hard California-haters will relish this book, a compendium of virtually every calamity visited on the Los Angeles Basin by implacable nature and imprudent humankind. Those seeking turn-of-the-millennium portents of a dark future for America's cities will also find bleak comfort here. But non-Angelenos who accompany author Mike Davis on his ecotour of the region's most hellish vistas should bring their own broader geographical perspective and whatever optimism they require for the journey, since Davis supplies neither.

With two key starters and a reserve missing due to grades, Anne Arundel Community College coach Mark Amatucci had been counting on havingboth Jamal Harris and Lester Lee on the floor in yesterday's men's basketball game against Essex.Much to his dismay and astonishment,the coach found out hours before tip-off that Harris, a freshman from Southern High in Baltimore, would not be able to play because of a delinquent bill for upcoming spring semester classes.That would turn out to be the first of two unwelcome surprises onthe day. The second would come a couple of hours later, when the Pioneers wound up getting stung by the 3-9 Knights, 61-47.

Mike Davis had an appointment for 11:30 a.m., but he was too busy to make it on time. No surprise there. His Indiana team has lost to Wake Forest by 33 points, Kentucky by 39 and Wisconsin by 34. This is a coach with a lot to fix. An extra two hours in a staff meeting couldn't hurt. Davis, not long ago, spent just short of 50 hours at the peak of his profession. His surprising Hoosiers defeated Oklahoma in the 2002 Final Four and prepared to play for the NCAA championship. Their decline since losing that game to Maryland has been gradual but profound.

No matter where Indiana basketball coach Mike Davis went this season, he could not escape the shadow of Bob Knight. Knight was there, in spirit at least, for the Hoosiers' Big Ten season. He was there, like a history lesson, when the team survived two rounds of the NCAA tournament in Sacramento, Calif. And he was there, almost ghost-like, when the Hoosiers took Lexington, Ky., by storm to win the South Regional. At one point last week in Lexington, Davis sounded driven to distraction when talking about the loyalists in Bloomington, Ind., who still live in the Knight era. "The ghosts never go away because what you have is people who are ... I won't say crazy, [but]

Ask Baltimore County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger III a question, and sometimes Michael H. Davis answers before the executive can open his mouth.Davis is the executive's spokesman -- and a whole lot more.He is labor negotiator, lobbyist, political guru, confidant and friend, and the man pacing at policy meetings on issues that range from buying land to filling more beds at the county's drunken driving treatment center. He also finds time to coach his children in sports."Mike is everywhere," says Sen. Michael J. Collins, an Essex Democrat who heads the county delegation.
