Q: After returning from a trip to Europe, my son asked me to help him decorate his apartment in what he calls a "polo" style.

What's a polo look, and how does one construct it in a currently unfurnished apartment?A: As you probably know, "polo" used to refer to a type of game, invented in India, involving men on horseback, a ball and some sticks. Now it's become a generic term used by followers of fashion to describe a distinctively American type of styling.

The sun was out, as was the sumptuous luncheon buffet at the Maryland Polo Club field in Monkton. Under a bright yellow tent, a tiered fountain bubbled with chocolate. The sounds of laughs and light conversation mingled with the thundering of horses' hooves, and the clicking of mallets on polo balls. It all made for a perfect "Afternoon of Polo," the annual fundraiser for the Abilities Network / Epilepsy Foundation of the Chesapeake Region. Except this year, there weren't quite as many people on the sidelines as in the past.

Ozra, a promising new Persian-Mediterranean restaurant, opened quietly in Little Italy back in early July. It's co-owned by Reza Holland and Mahrdad "Max" Tabasi, who have invested a lot of time, thought and, from the looks of things, money in their renovation of what had been an old bakery building just a few steps down from Vaccaro's Italian Pastry Shop. Can't quite picture where this is? Don't feel bad. This block of Stiles Street doesn't get a ton of foot traffic.

The classic polo is getting fashion play again. About time. The original sport shirt had been retired for a while -- suffering from overexposure. At the beginning of the 20th century the collared, placket-front pullover was designed for wear at the tony pony clubs. It met with such success that it was taken up by the tennis set in the '20s and the golf crowd in the '50s.By the '80s it had became the official wear at country clubs and on preppy campuses. It was a field of Alligators vs. Ponies for while.

As they rushed toward a suburban Utah home with guns drawn, agents knew they were on to a significant figure in the Silk Road online drug bazaar - a major cocaine dealer, perhaps. Message boards on Silk Road - the world's most popular online drug market - had been buzzing about the sale that triggered this bust. Users of the encrypted website advertised drugs, forged documents and hacking tools for sale through seemingly anonymous transactions, but a kilo of pure Peruvian cocaine was something special.

Matt Collins was perspiring heavily. The 19-year-old Friends alumnus said he doesn't usually get nervous playing polo, but, on the first day of a February training session in West Palm Beach, Fla., the thought of riding in front of the country's best players was intimidating. "Owen Rinehart and Nick Snow, they were all just sort of watching us, just criticizing everything we're doing. I was like sweating and shaking. Once I got out there, it was fun, though. " That was Collins' first experience as a member of the United States Polo Association's development team.

A University of Maryland commission concluded that the school cannot adequately support 27 teams and recommended eliminating eight of them to create "a leaner, stronger athletic program. " The teams, which compete in six different sports, are: men's tennis, men's track and field (indoor, outdoor and cross country), men's swimming and diving, women's swimming and diving, women's water polo and women's acrobatics and tumbling, formerly called "competitive cheer. " The 17-member commission suggested Maryland has had to spread itself thin with so many teams -- five more than the average for the Atlantic Coast Conference's public universities.

The University of Maryland held back letters of intent to high school recruits in three sports -- men's swimming and diving, women's swimming and diving, and women's water polo - - an indication that those teams could be eliminated, school officials said. Not sending the letters as part of an early signing period means that those teams are likely on a list of recommended cuts to help stem the athletic department's budget woes. An unknown number of other sports are also on the list, officials said.
