This week, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered state troopers to take over responsibility for maintaining order in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, following several days of unrest sparked by the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a local police officer. Mr. Nixon waited far too long to bring in the state Highway Patrol to calm the situation, but he was absolutely correct in his judgment that local authorities weren't up to the job and were actually making matters worse. Had police there exhibited the restraint shown by Baltimore officers on Thursday, when a peaceful crowd rallied near City Hall to support Ferguson's residents with a moment of silence, it's likely things never would have got to a point where the governor had to intervene.

Family members have been deeply touched by the outpouring of emotion and support in the aftermath of Hall of Fame quarterback John Unitas' death, his son Chad said yesterday. "It's honestly unbelievable. I know who my father is and was as an athlete, but the absolute support and outpouring of love is just unbelievable," said Chad Unitas, 23, of Lutherville. The legendary quarterback, who played 17 seasons for the Baltimore Colts beginning in 1956, suffered a heart attack and died about 3 p.m. Wednesday while exercising at a Timonium physical therapy center.

The ESPN "Monday Night Football" crew earned my respect before the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals even started. It came during the pre-game moment of silence for former Ravens owner Art Modell . Placed at ground level, a camera shot the length of the field into the top of the stands to the left of one of the end zones. It was shooting into a yellow ball of setting sun that was seeping through the stands onto the field. The muted sun suffused the entire shot in a golden glow.

Carroll County Board of Education began drafting policies last night that loosen restrictions on having cell phones in school and that encourage principals to schedule a daily moment of silence into the school day. Students are prohibited from taking cell phones into school - a restriction that interim Schools Superintendent Charles I. Ecker had proposed formalizing into policy and adding as a constraint for staff and visitors. But the board expressed interest last night in easing the rules to allow students to have cell phones in school as long as they keep them turned off during the school day. "I don't want phones ringing in school either," board President Susan W. Krebs said.

CHICAGO -- When high school freshman Dawn Sherman learned that Illinois had a law requiring public schools to provide a moment of silence each day for "reflection and student prayer," she was outraged. Not because the law meant lost learning time in her honors math class - which would be 15 seconds shorter - but because "it was clear that we're supposed to sit and pray, or sit and watch other people pray," said Dawn, who is an atheist. Along with her father, Rob, the Buffalo Grove High School student has filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law, which some Illinois school boards have raced to embrace and others have defied.

Local teams will continue playing despite the latest developments in the Persian Gulf war, although one high school event could be in jeopardy because of anti-war protests at the Fifth Regiment Armory.Protests at the armory have interrupted or canceled high school track meets at the building this week. The 29th annual National Guard Meet is scheduled to be run there tomorrow, and officials are hoping it won't have to be canceled as well."It's a major competition, with teams from 83 schools, and it would be a real shame if we couldn't run it," said meet director Ed Walker.

— Barry Jacobs has been a University of Virginia lacrosse fan for 50 years, ever since he unsuccessfully tried out for the team as a freshman. A season-ticket holder for many years after moving to Northern Virginia, Jacobs came to Klockner Stadium on Saturday night with mixed emotions. Jacobs, a retired State Department officer, was going to root for the top-ranked and No.1-seed Cavaliers against Mount St. Mary's in their opening game of the NCAA lacrosse tournament, but his heart was heavy from the killing of women's lacrosse player Yeardley Love nearly two weeks ago. Virginia men's lacrosse player George Huguely is charged with murder in her death.

Silence surrounds the track behind Hammond High School. The air is warm and musty, and it is filled with a sense of purpose uncharacteristic for this moment of silence. Just minutes after a long-awaited sunset, a sliver of moon lends just enough light to illuminate almost 1,000 people. They are fighting cancer. "Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back." was the message behind Howard County's 13th Annual Relay for Life, an all-night program that raised more than $222,000 for the American Cancer Society.

It took until the 16th game of the season for outfielder Jay Payton to join the Orioles' active roster. He had to wait at least one more night to join the lineup. The Orioles activated Payton from the disabled list yesterday and optioned Jon Knott to Triple-A Norfolk. Manager Sam Perlozzo decided to ease Payton back into major league competition, rather than start him against Toronto Blue Jays starter A.J. Burnett, whose fastball reached 98 mph last night. "We'll work him in, make sure he's doing OK," manager Sam Perlozzo said.

WASHINGTON - In contrast to a year ago, President Bush plans to stay close to the White House on the Sept. 11 anniversary next week and attend only a few, low-key commemorations of the terrorist attacks. Bush will start the day by attending a memorial service at St. John's Episcopal Church near the White House, aides said yesterday. He will then observe a moment of silence on the White House's South Lawn at 8:46 a.m. - the time the first jetliner struck the World Trade Center in New York two years ago. His only other public event that day will be a stop at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington to visit troops recovering from wounds suffered in the war in Iraq.
