Janice Binkley-Cole handed what looked like a makeshift lacrosse stick to Tristan Cole and watched her smiling 10-year-old son head onto a practice field. From the time he left the sideline until he returned about 10 minutes later, Tristan's feet never touched the ground. That's because Tristan plays polocrosse, and in his sport, he doesn't walk, jog or run. He rides a pony. “The funnest part is when you get to run around [on the horse] and go really fast and have good goals,” Tristan said.

Robert Jarrett shuffled over to the red plastic chair and sat down, then used both of his shackled hands to slide on a pair of glasses. It was the 57-year-old's first court appearance after his arrest Wednesday night on charges that he killed his wife, Christine Ann Jarrett, who had gone missing more than 20 years ago. Little insight into the case was offered at the brief hearing Friday in Howard County District Court. Jarrett, who said he works as a steamfitter, did not have an attorney, and a prosecutor asked only that Judge Pamila J. Brown reaffirm his no-bail status, saying the severity of the charges makes him a flight risk.
