If putting a new golf course at Pine Ridge in any way jeopardizes the water supply, then Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke should issue an order to shut down the existing facility by nightfall and notify all news outlets that a major emergency exists. But relax. There's absolutely no evidence of poison in the drinking water to make it life-threatening.After all, Pine Ridge has been at its present location since 1958 and not a single illness or death has been attributed to the water's being contaminated by any type of chemical.

From: California Price: $16 Serve with: Thai cuisine, fried chicken This is a wonderfully spring-like wine — dry but also very fresh, fruity and lively. There are hints of pears, apples, tropical fruit and citrus. It would match up well with spicy foods but also is perfect for outdoor drinking on an April or May spring day. Unlike some of the more hard-to-find wines praised here, this one is in wide distribution. -- Michael Dresser , The Baltimore Sun

Creation of a second golf course at the Loch Raven Reservoir has been shot down. Presumably, the effort is history unless the idea is revived by an independent committee. Politics played a role and so did the personalities involved. That's unfortunate.A side issue in the scenario is whether the leaders of Baltimore County made a "neighborly" request to their counterparts in Baltimore City to refrain from issuing the approval that was needed before work could proceed.The Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp.

The last time I drove through the Black Hills, it was 1977 and Elvis had just died. I didn't appreciate the fuss at the time. Nor, as I drove cross-country with my then-boyfriend in a post-college stupor, did I stop to think about the Indian reservations we passed, much less the violence, broken promises and poverty that beset them. I certainly had no clue that the Pine Ridge Reservation, the site of so much recent turmoil, including a spate of murders and the occupation of Wounded Knee, shed many tears for Presley's passing.

If the 2003 golf season could be compared to a single round, Monday would have been that perfectly struck, where-have-you-been-all-my-life approach shot that brims with the promise of better days ahead. After months of weather filled with whiffs, shanks and duck-hooks, Mother Nature owed area golfers at least that. "Today was beautiful," said Tom McCann after playing in a corporate outing at Hunt Valley Golf Club on Monday. "I would like to see it like this from now until after Labor Day."

PINE RIDGE, S.D. -- When Kevin Costner was filming "Dances With Wolves" in South Dakota last year, Loretta Cook, a Lakota Sioux Indian, had never heard of the actor.A friend who worked on the movie as an extra dropped by and showed her a photograph of herself and Costner. "Oh, nice," Cook responded. "Who is he? Your boyfriend?"Today, one would be hard pressed to find anyone in South Dakota who does not know who Costner is. His film about the life of a U.S. cavalryman who joins the Sioux is exploited in state-sponsored ads to promote tourism.

PINE RIDGE, S.D. - Tom Poor Bear is a 46-year-old Oglala Sioux who has never cast a ballot in a state or national election. But that should change Tuesday when he says he intends to vote the straight Democratic ticket. "I found out our vote is a powerful weapon, so I registered and now I hope we sweep this election," he said. Poor Bear is among 24,000 newly registered voters in this sparsely populated state - about 4,000 of them Native Americans signed up by the Democrats in the hope they will tip the scales for that party's candidates, especially Sen. Tim Johnson.
