When Monique Washington-Jones was growing up near Richmond, Va., in the small town of Charles City, she and her younger sister took karate lessons from their father, who ran a coed martial arts school known across the state. There are family photos of her at age 2 holding nunchucks - a weapon that consists of a pair of hardwood sticks joined by a rope or chain - but her formal training didn't begin until she was 10. “The woman I am today is a direct reflection of my martial arts training,” she says of that family bonding experience.

When Monique Mercer decided to visit a friend in Raleigh, N.C., in March 1996, her mother didn't want her to drive alone. Instead, Joyce Mercer suggested, why not take the train?The idea seemed so old-fashioned. But Monique knew her mother wouldn't let up, so she finally agreed. When Joyce dropped her daughter at the train station in Fredericksburg, Va. (Monique grew up in Stafford County, Va., and was still living there at the time), she took note of how nicely dressed Monique was and teasingly asked Monique if she thought she'd meet a man on the trip.

City Circuit Court judges transferred the remaining two defendants accused in last year's birthday party beating of a 12-year-old girl back to juvenile court yesterday. Seletta Broaddus and Temprest Baldwin, both 16, are scheduled to appear before juvenile court judges Monday. Five other women and girls -- including the alleged instigator, 37-year-old Monique Baldwin -- have been convicted in the near-fatal beating of Nicole Ashley Townes at Baldwin's West Baltimore home. Broaddus, accused of stomping Nicole with high-heeled boots, pleaded guilty yesterday in Circuit Court to first-degree assault.

A 12-year-old West Baltimore girl who was nearly beaten to death at a friend's birthday party in February is still in the hospital with significant and possibly permanent brain damage, prosecutors said yesterday. "Her prognosis is very poor," Assistant State's Attorney Julie Drake said of Nicole Ashley Townes. "If she is not a vegetable, she will be leading a life that none of us wants. I can't say she's lucky to be alive." Drake made the comments at a bail review hearing in which two of the women charged in the group beating - Monique Baldwin, 36, and Erin Baldwin, 19 - were denied bail by a Circuit Court judge who said the pair are a "significant danger" to society.

Ngo Okafor has posed with supermodels like Gisele Bündchen. His face has been plastered all over New York City in an Under Armour ad campaign. But it wasn't until this fall when actor and talk-show host Mo'Nique gushed on-air about his calendar that the 35-year-old got a real taste of stardom. "After that appearance, I got a lot of double takes," he said this week from his parent's Salisbury home. "People in my building would stop me. When I went to auditions, the security guards who ignored me before said, 'Oh, I now know who you are.'" For the past decade, Okafor has gradually become a force in the modeling world.

In her most memorable line from "Precious," Mo'Nique's character plaintively asks, "Who is going to love me?" But that's a question the Baltimore County-born actress may never have to ask again, not after receiving a standing ovation for winning the best supporting actress Oscar at Sunday night's 82nd annual Academy Awards. "God bless us all," said the composed, but clearly emotional, actress, whose star turn in "Precious" has garnered widespread, critically acclaim and numerous awards.

Monique Imes was never one to shun the spotlight. That was true back in the day, when she was just a little girl growing up in Baltimore County. And it's even more true today, now that she's become famous as Mo'Nique, BET talk-show host and Oscar-nominated actress. "Oh yeah, I was maybe four, and I just liked to shake myself in front of everybody," Mo'Nique, 42, recalls with a laugh, just minutes before heading into an Atlanta television studio to tape an episode of her nightly talk show.

"Everything is up on the screen." That's Mo'Nique, explaining why she hasn't decamped to Hollywood to woo those who hold her Oscar dreams, whatever they might be, in their hands. How audacious of her. How refreshing. Though the award gods have been thundering in anger for weeks now, she has won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award; and on Tuesday, she picked up an Oscar nomination for supporting actress for her performance in "Precious" despite her unwillingness to wade into the fray.

Three Baltimore women and one teen-ager who are accused of savagely beating a 12-year-old during a birthday party last month were indicted yesterday by a city grand jury on charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault and child abuse. Nicole Ashley Townes was repeatedly punched, kicked and choked until she was bloodied and unconscious. Her sister, Brenda Bailey, 11, also was beaten but suffered less serious injuries. Nicole, who lives in the 400 block of Lyndhurst St. in West Baltimore, was in a coma for several days after the attack Feb. 28. Margaret T. Burns, a spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office, said Nicole remains in the pediatric intensive care unit at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

With her best-supporting actress win at last night's Golden Globe Awards, Mo'Nique has emerged as the solid favorite to win the Oscar. And her tearful and heartfelt acceptance speech dispelled any notion that the Baltimore County-born actress didn't much care for Hollywood awards. Mo'Nique earned the Golden Globe for playing Mary Jones, a monstrous, abusive welfare mother with a disarming moment of clarity in the movie "Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire." Clearly moved, Mo'Nique, who until the movie was released in November was known more for her stand-up comedy and BET talk show than for her acting chops, received a prolonged ovation from an audience composed largely of her acting peers.
