LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Story Musgrave doesn't mind that he will lose the distinction of being the oldest person to fly a space mission when John Glenn takes off with the shuttle Discovery later this month.But what rankles him is the 77-year-old senator's approach to the cause."I am bothered by the fact that Senator Glenn is not giving it all he's got, that he's taking a part-time approach to it," said Musgrave. "It should've been put off until he was done with his Senate duties."Musgrave retired last year after a 30-year career as an astronaut and six shuttle flights, including his last in 1996 aboard Columbia, when he was 61."

One garden that never welcomes rain is Annapolis Summer Garden - the outdoor theater across from City Dock where a downpour postponed last Friday's seating. Overhead lights had to be repaired "big-top" fashion by a technician working from a catwalk 20 feet above the audience. And about a half-hour into Smokey Joe's Cafe, a 15-minute timeout was called until the rain subsided and audience members could return to their seats. Theatergoing optimists who ignored the rain forecast and endured storm delays were amply rewarded by a cast of troupers who gave 100 percent despite a less-than-ideal performance environment.

Having "The Right Stuff" used to include being young.Astronauts were strapping test pilots, or eager young Ph.D.s, their heads crammed with astrophysics and acronyms. The old guys took desk jobs. Or so it seemed until Dr. Story Musgrave hit his 60s.Dr. Musgrave and six other men and women are preparing for a 16-day scientific mission aboard the shuttle Columbia in November. And when they reach orbit, Dr. Musgrave, at 61, will become the oldest human to fly in space.An astronaut since 1967, when most of his Columbia crew mates were in grade school, he explains his longevity simply: "I love space."

When Tamia Musgrave's daughter Tyler told her that she wanted to go to Annapolis High School, Musgrave thought about the news reports on poor student performance and teachers being forced to reapply for their jobs. "My first reaction was `No,'" said Musgrave, who lives in Arnold. "All I knew was what I heard and what I heard was negative." After talking with friends who taught in the county and several visits to Annapolis High School, Musgrave changed her mind. Tyler, 14, of Arnold, was accepted into the International Baccalaureate program at Annapolis High, an honors curriculum that gives students a more global perspective and a challenging workload.

WASHINGTON - The congressional sponsors of a constitutional amendment that would prohibit same-sex marriage announced new wording yesterday aimed at building political support for the measure by easing concerns that it would block states from allowing civil unions of gay or lesbian couples. Sen. Wayne Allard and Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, both Colorado Republicans, said they believed the rewording would "make it perfectly clear," despite language defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman, that the amendment would leave states free to enact laws allowing civil unions or domestic benefits for gay couples.

ASHBURN, Va. -- In the NFL archives, Mark Brunell's pass to Santana Moss late in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos will be recorded as a 32-yard gain. To Washington Redskins quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave, the pass is a sign of the pair's evolution. In a steady rain on first-and-10 from Washington's 48-yard line, Brunell lofted a pass over Broncos middle linebacker Al Wilson to Moss, who was pushed out of bounds by safety John Lynch at Denver's 20. Although the drive produced just a field goal in the 21-19 loss, Musgrave continued to marvel at Brunell's pass to Moss.

WASHINGTON - NASA faces a significant challenge in its effort to return the space shuttle fleet to flight if testing on tough wing panels proves a tiny crack was enough to cause Columbia's fatal breakup, agency head Sean O'Keefe said yesterday. The results of a test last week for the Columbia Accident Investigation Board - part of a series to determine whether a chunk of foam that separated from the shuttle's external tank could fatally damage the wing panels - were sobering, O'Keefe said.

What makes us truly us? Is it an innate self that comes to the fore to define human beings, or are we, ultimately, the sum total of our interactions with others? Every other deep philosophical question you can think of has been posed on the musical stage at one time or another, so why should this nature vs. nurture controversy be any different? That conundrum sits at the core of "Blood Brothers," the Willy Russell musical in production at Colonial Players of Annapolis. While full of humorous moments, "Blood Brothers" is the raw, dark tale of the Johnstone twins, born to a divorced, working-class mother in northern England during the 1950s, and separated at birth.
