LAST WEEK'S ISSUE: -- A rookie Anne Arundel County police officer accused of photographing himself fondling a teenage girl during a traffic stop is being allowed to return to administrative duty. Officer Joseph F. Mosmiller, 22, who joined the department in May, has been charged with a fourth-degree sex offense, second-degree assault and two other misdemeanors. Three other officers were implicated in the Jan. 20 incident in a church parking lot on Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena. All three are members of Mosmiller's recruiting class who work with him on the midnight shift in the Eastern District.

In a conference call with reporters four days after his victory, the popular cyclist denied using performance-enhancing drugs. He complained that "a lot of people are going to feel I'm guilty before I've had a chance to defend myself."

Cheer up. PLO police are on the job in Gaza.We are told on the one hand that Dan Rostenkowski's lawyers are cutting a deal with federal prosecutors and on the other that everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a fair and public trial. Sort of makes you stop and stutter.The Constellation has departed on what we hope is not its last voyage."L.A. Law" is over. Which is too bad.

The heavyweight championship fight between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson scheduled for Nov. 8 should be postponed immediately, unless and until Tyson is cleared of the rape charge that was filed by an Indianapolis grand jury yesterday.Period. No ifs, ands or butts, fondled or otherwise.It is a tough thing to call for the scrubbing of a fight that truly had the potential for greatness. But the integrity of the heavyweight championship of the world -- once the most prestigious title in sports -- and the future of boxing must take precedence over the latest "Fight of the Century."

Night Train Is UnbearableMy complaint is about the freight train that runs on the light rail tracks during the middle of the night. The noise this freight train makes is enough to wake the dead. . . .Linthicum used to be a nice, quiet place to live but it isn't anymore. . . . We've never had to put up with having a loss of sleep night after night.Years ago, this freight train ran during the day. That was fine, there were no problems and we all got our sleep. Now there is no set schedule. This freight train could come by and wake you up at 1:30 in the morning or 2:30 a.m. or 3:30 a.m. or 4:30 a.m. It also blows an extremely loud whistle before each road crossing.

Hollywood -- Nearly five years after the longest and costliest criminal trial in American history was put to rest, the sensational McMartin Pre-School child molestation case is being reopened for a TV movie. Falling on unsympathetic ears are the cries of protest from parents and former students of the old Manhattan Beach, Calif., preschool, who have worked hard to close that painful chapter in their lives.The producers, including Oliver Stone, argue that their HBO movie will tell the story of the "real" victims in that case: primarily Raymond Buckey, who spent 1984 to 1989 in jail without bail, and his mother, Peggy McMartin Buckey, who spent two years in jail before her bail was set. Although Mr. Buckey was tried again after the first trial ended in only a partial verdict, neither he nor anyone else at the school was convicted of any crime.

The kids, they're supposed to be everyone's first concern. But as the investigation of Pete Pompey continues, it's the kids -- the Dunbar High School football and basketball players -- who keep getting hurt.Almost three months have passed since Pompey was placed on administrative leave with pay by the city school system pending the state's attorney's investigation into allegations of misuse of athletic department funds.Almost three months, and the football players remain confused about their loyalties to Pompey and interim coach Stanley Mitchell.
