The hallway outside the Mount de Sales gym has been cluttered with pink hearts and basketball players this week, as the Sailors prepare for their first Pink Out game Friday night to benefit the Breast Center at nearby St. Agnes Hospital. Senior Katie Sauter and junior Eve Lukowski, who spearheaded the Pink Out, said they hope to raise at least $750 by selling pink paper hearts for $1 in memory of someone affected by breast cancer. They will be posted on a Wall of Hearts. The players also will have a bake sale Friday and later, will sell flower grams to the Mount de Sales students for Valentine's Day. “It really does mean a lot that everybody helped out so much, especially Eve,” said Sauter, whose mother Carol Sauter died from breast cancer in April.

Breast cancer gets a lot of attention - and not just during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There's a good reason for that, as any of the quarter-million American women diagnosed with breast cancer each year will tell you. But breast cancer isn't the only serious health risk women should be aware of, according to county health professionals. Some are fatal; others are not. Some are well-known, others obscure. All affect the person's quality of life, and all affect more women than men. We talked with some Howard County doctors in the know to find out what to look out for and where to learn more locally.

Instead of seeing pink crabs in the window display at the Pink Crab in Ruxton, you'll see a couple of flamingos wearing pearls. It's just as well. The flamingos do an admirable job of hinting at the loud yet ladylike Lilly Pulitzer clothing and accessories you'll discover inside. And there's stuff for men and kids too. Here preppy is a good thing and there are loads of pink and green to prove it, not to mention those wild Lilly prints fashioned into teeny tiny bathing suits for infants or bigger ones for dads.

Oh, the swelter we know oh-so-unfondly as summer in Baltimore. 105 heat index? Check. Freak rainstorms? Double check. Comically oversized, fruity, refreshing cocktails? Thankfully, that's a triple check. Hampden's own Hon Bar has you covered with its cocktail list, all of which are available in standard or "party" sizes, with the Pink Flamingo (have you seen Cafe Hon 's exterior?) being our drink of choice in Size Enormous. The Pink Flamingo, as assembled by bartender Lisa Davis, is unabashedly fruity - consisting of Bacardi Black Razz, Triple Sec, cranberry juice and a dash or three of lemon and lime juice.

We still have many more weeks before it will be time to pull on the warmer woolies. Looking for fresh shirts, ties, socks and other fun pieces for the "in between" season? Look into Thomas Pink -- otherwise known as PINK. This stately men's store originated in London and made its way to our shores a few years ago. We Americans have embraced England's version of tradition and style. Pink is best known for its terrific collection of men's shirts, ties and accessories usually made in beautifully bright colors and patterns.

Cross has pink pens, and equestrians can find pink cowboy hats and riding gloves. Here are some other pink products to help a worthy cause: 1.

They're cute, friendly and very pink. They know how to make a scene, swivel their hips and then disappear quickly. For the 15 members of Pink Bloque, a group of twentysomethings based in Chicago who protest by dancing in the streets, pink is the color of feminism and political activism. And dance is the ultimate weapon. On Tuesday night, the group brought its punchy outfits and big smiles to a four-hour workshop at the Patterson, a restored movie theater in Highlandtown, with the Creative Alliance serving as host.

The $64,000 in bonus money paid to a non-performing agency such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs office in Baltimore is, in one word, sickening ("VA paid bonuses at Md. office," Sept. 19). The story about rewards for "individual performance" is just baloney. When veterans are forced to wait 500 or more days for action on a claim, this is evidence of ineffective management and poor individual performance right down the line. If it wasn't a government job, these non-performers would get what they deserve - a pink slip.

A Puerto Rican woman was charged with a weapons violation at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport after security officials located a pink stun gun in her carry-on bag, according to local authorities. The Transportation Security Administration, which screened the woman, said a small pocket knife was also located in her bag. However, the Maryland Transportation Authority, which responded and charged 56-year-old Carmen Luz Pineiro Roman, said it has no record of the knife. First Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman, said officers responded to a domestic concourse about 6:37 a.m. and issued Roman a criminal citation - the result of a lesser weapon violation.

October, with its ubiquitous pink ribbons, has come to symbolize breast cancer awareness. I'm guessing you didn't know that September has a ribbon too - a little-seen light blue ribbon that is the sign of Prostate Cancer Awareness month. I didn't know it. But last September I became acutely aware of prostate cancer, when my husband was diagnosed with the disease. I set up a full physical exam for my less-than-thrilled husband earlier in 2012, when a friend was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

When he was 13, Thomas Lauderdale's world in Portland, Ore., opened up wide. That was when the future founder of the ensemble called Pink Martini saw the 1946 Rita Hayworth film "Gilda" for the first time. "I loved the 1940s glamour and all that," Lauderdale, now 43, said. "What's distressing is that it's being lost. We're in real trouble these days because of reality television. I yearn for the grace and elegance of the past. " Lauderdale has been doing his best to reclaim some of those old qualities through the music of Pink Martini, which has been performing highly stylish arrangements of vintage songs since 1994.

If you were one of the adventurers who passed through Ledbetter's bar in the early days of the Fells Point hippie era, you may remember Paul Swift. He was the guy dancing naked on top of the bar."Paul ended every night like that," said Mary Vivian Pearce, who starred with Mr. Swift in several of Baltimore director John Waters' early movies. "I guess he did it for the same reason he always wore 400 bracelets."Mr. Swift, best remembered for his role as the Eggman in the Waters' classic "Pink Flamingos," died of AIDS Friday at Francis Scott Key Medical Center.

LONDON -- Two years before she was offered the role of Dolores Jane Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a friend of Imelda Staunton's called her up to say he'd just read J.K. Rowling's book and that there was a part in it she'd be perfect for. "So I read it," Staunton says, "and thought, `Small, squat, ugly, toadlike woman - thanks a lot.'" But her friend clearly wasn't the only one who had her in mind to play Umbridge, a character Stephen...

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, decided not to use his specially made MaxBat black bat with a pink label Sunday. Players on the Orioles and Twins used various pink apparel and equipment on Mother's Day as part of a MLB campaign promoting breast cancer awareness. Markakis donned pink cleats, pink wristbands and pink batting gloves, but used his regular MaxBat bat with an orange label instead of the one that likely would have cost him a $1,000 fine.

MINNEAPOLIS - An annual Major League Baseball undertaking to provide exposure and money to cancer-awareness charities became embroiled in a bit of a controversy Friday, with an Oriole being one of the players inadvertently involved. On Sunday, as part of its Mother's Day celebration, participating players will wear and use pink equipment - to bring more awareness to breast cancer issues - as they have since 2006. The items will then be auctioned off with proceeds going to charities including Susan G. Komen For The Cure, which has championed breast cancer research for decades.
