Jean-Pierre G. Meyer, former professor and chairman of the Johns Hopkins University mathematics department whose escape from Nazi-occupied France became the subject of a children's book, died April 24 of heart failure at his Guilford residence. He was 83. "He was conscientious and really very smart and kind, and that's not always a combination that goes together," said W. Stephen Wilson, a close friend and math department colleague. "He was department chairman for five years and no one has been chairman for five years since the 1980s to today," said Dr. Wilson.

Virginia senior midfielder and solo captain Chris LaPierre will forgo the rest of the season, Virginia coach Dom Starsia said Wednesday. "You feel for a kid in that situation," Starsia said. "He came in with this class, feels responsible to this class, but obviously he's been struggling with an ailment. " LaPierre injured his posterior cruciate ligament in the Cavaliers' first practice of the season, then appeared in games against Drexel, Syracuse and Vermont, but has not played the past two weeks.

Clausen replaced Matt Moore , who will miss the rest of the season after tearing the labrum in his throwing shoulder.

Zina C. Pierre, a third-generation Annapolitan and political consultant appears to have won Tuesday's Democratic primary in the race for Annapolis mayor. With all the precincts reporting, Pierre held a 115-vote lead over the nearest challenger, Anne Arundel County Councilman Joshua J. Cohen, in the six-person race. Though city officials say there are about 200 absentee ballots to count, Cohen all but conceded the election Tuesday night. "I suspect that when all the votes are counted, it will still show Zina as being successful," Cohen said.

Zina C. Pierre, the Democratic candidate for Annapolis mayor, attempted to right her beleaguered campaign Monday by reassuring a closed-door gathering of local party leaders that she could overcome the disclosure of personal financial problems. Pierre, a 44-year-old political consultant whose win in last week's primary put her on track to become the city's first African-American mayor, offered a sort of preview of a planned news conference on Wednesday, when she is scheduled to discuss for the first time her foreclosed home, state tax liens, bounced checks and other financial difficulties, those attending the breakfast meeting said.

Zina C. Pierre, a virtual unknown in Annapolis politics whose victory in this week's Democratic primary put her on track to become the city's first African-American mayor, withdrew from the race Friday. Pierre pointed to "personal reasons" for her decision, which came after a day in which the historic capital city buzzed with revelations of her financial problems, including a home in foreclosure, a bounced check and state liens for unpaid income taxes. The Annapolis Democratic Central Committee must choose a replacement nominee by early October, according to city code.

Not everyone views National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre as sympathetically as does letter writer Steve Peters ("NRA's LaPierre makes a compelling case," Dec. 27). Following the Newtown, Conn., massacre, Mr. LaPierre first recommended not selling guns to the mentally ill, then changed that to recommending putting more armed guards in schools. Yet U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein reports there were two armed police officers at the school in Columbine, which nevertheless did not prevent a massacre there.

Regarding your report on National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre's combative response to criticism of his organization, I wondered whether your reporter watched the same speech I did ("Let's not let the NRA's LaPierre misdirect us with ignorance, lies about media," Dec. 21). I saw the tone of Mr. LaPierre' presentation as more pleading than combative, and far from the lashing speech described in the article. Rather than reading and listening to all the anti-gun rhetoric in the news lately, I suggest that everyone watch Mr. LaPierre's speech and judge for themselves.

What an ignorant, dishonest and pathetic response to Sandy Hook today from the National Rifle Association. As a media critic, I will limit myself to the disingenuous attack on the media from Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the organization. Of course, it's a shameless attempt to avoid accepting any responsibility by his organization. But in the interest of a sane discussion about media violence -- rather than the demagogued, crazy-right-wing-paranoid speechifying of LaPierre -- some social science research, facts and context need to be presented.

Chris Johnson wasn't happy about surrendering the 11-yard touchdown pass from rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins to wide receiver Pierre Garcon that helped the Washington Redskins tie the Ravens and then win, 31-28, in overtime last Sunday. At the same time, however, the cornerback said he had no regrets about trying to jump what he thought was an in route by Garcon. “As a vet, I gave up a play that I didn't want to give up. It stuck with me for a couple days,” Johnson said Wednesday.

The passing of time is impossible to ignore, but Motion City Soundtrack's Justin Pierre tried his hardest for more than a decade. "I spent a good, long chunk of my life - 15 years, I'd say - not really living in the moment but rather avoiding the moment," Pierre said. A couple of years ago, the lead singer, now 36, looked at his family and suddenly knew he had to change his perspective. "My brother has a kid. Some of my siblings are married. My parents are grandparents," he said.
