Iverson to be fined for missing practice nba Allen Iverson apparently chose family and food over practice - and he'll be fined for it. Iverson was the only player who didn't show up when the Detroit Pistons worked out on Thanksgiving. Coach Michael Curry confirmed Iverson will be fined, will not start tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks and might not play in the game for missing the practice. "I'm surprised when guys are late; I'm surprised when they don't show," Curry told the Detroit Free Press.

HUSON, Mont. - When my husband and I retired and moved from Southern California to the Missoula, Mont., area, we imagined a quiet existence in a corner of the country that doesn't make national news. The local paper covers stories about whether to allow Hooters to build on a busy street corner, the reconstruction of a dam that threatens trout fishing season, and who can shoot wild turkeys on whose property. Ahh, the simple life, out of the media glare! But suddenly Missoula is a regular in the national headlines.

W.R. Grace & Co. has agreed to pay $250 million, the most in the history of the federal government's Superfund program, to clean up contamination from a Montana vermiculite mine that caused 1,200 residents and former mine workers to become ill or die from asbestos-related diseases. The agreement was announced by the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency late yesterday. If the deal is approved by the bankruptcy court overseeing Grace's reorganization, the Columbia-based specialty chemicals maker would be shielded from any additional cleanup claims and costs.

No wonder Sen. President Mike Miller couldn't reach Sen. Jim Brochin to give him the bad news. The night before the General Assembly session began, Brochin stuffed his ears with plugs and switched his cell phone off. Not that Brochin could have heard the ringtone anyway, what with all the racket at the Hannah Montana concert. The 43-year-old Towson Democrat spent Tuesday night in a sea of shrieking tweens, among them, Brochin's 9-year-old daughter, Katherine. But don't let the chaperone duty and earplugs fool you. At the risk of alienating the classic rock vote, Brochin said that Montana is better in concert than Bruce Springsteen - at least the aging Bruce.

This was no ordinary Tuesday afternoon. Indoor soccer games were skipped and piano lessons forsaken. Megan Foard of Forest Hill apologized in advance to her pony, A.J., for bowing out of their regular after-school ride. "He was cool with it, though," the 13-year-old said. And why wouldn't he be? Megan and her friends had to-die-for concert tickets - for Hannah Montana, who played at the 1st Mariner Arena last night before a sold-out crowd of screaming tweens. Thousands of lucky girls, and not a few boys, scampered home from school to prepare for the arrival of the 15-year-old singer-cum-actress, whose real name is Miley Cyrus, and who holds the youthful audience in the palm of her pretty hand.

The director of detention for Maryland's Department of Juvenile Services resigned yesterday, saying he did not want news media attention focused on his role in a child abuse case in Montana to detract from the agency's work. Chris Perkins stepped down a day after acknowledging that he is the unnamed "Staff No. 2" mentioned in a redacted report that was issued in January 2006 by the Montana Department of Health and Human Services. The report, unsealed by a Montana court this week at the request of a Montana youth advocate, said that Perkins "directly abused or neglected youth under his care" while running a military-style academy for juvenile offenders.

The superintendent of a Maryland program for juvenile offenders once headed a military-style youth academy in Montana that closed amid findings of child mistreatment, the Department of Juvenile Services acknowledged yesterday. But Secretary Donald W. DeVore said he had full confidence in Chris Perkins -- now superintendent of the Victor Cullen Center in Frederick County -- and pointed out that Montana authorities cleared Perkins of all allegations of child abuse or neglect last December.

First, Karen McVearry spent $30 to join the Hannah Montana fan club and buy presale concert tickets for her 9-year-old daughter Maddie. Too late - they had sold out. The 36-year-old Catonsville mom tried again the day the tickets went on sale to the public. As Maddie played soccer, McVearry stood on the sidelines, a cell phone in each hand, calling Ticketmaster, while a friend also called and tried ordering online. Still too late. The Jan. 8 Hannah Montana show at 1st Mariner Arena sold out in minutes.

Miley Cyrus doesn't look like a mouse. Or a befuddled bear. Or even a princess. But make no mistake, like Mickey, Winnie the Pooh and Snow White before her, she is a Disney franchise. Miley is the star of Hannah Montana, a half-hour Disney Channel sitcom following the travails of Miley Stewart, a young girl living in Malibu, Calif., who also happens to be pop star Hannah Montana. Costarring real-life dad Billy Ray Cyrus and consistently featuring a wish list of co-stars including Dolly Parton and Larry David, Hannah Montana is one of the top-rated kids' shows of all time (in 2006, it was second only to American Idol among kids 6 to 14)
