The Rev. William Redmon wasn't offended when asked recently if defending state champion Mervo was at full strength when his City boys indoor track team defeated the Mustangs in an early-season meet at the Fifth Regiment Armory.In fact, Redmon welcomed the query and appeared to enjoy answering it."Oh, yes! They were all there," he said, his voice rising in the same manner it does when he's delivering a rousing sermon to his congregation at Baltimore's St. Katherine of Alexandria Episcopal Church.

CHICAGO - At least 21 people died and 30 more were seriously injured early yesterday in a terrifying stampede that erupted at a swank after-hours club on the South Side when security guards used mace and pepper spray to halt a fistfight between two women, authorities and witnesses said. The commissioner of the Chicago Fire Department, James T. Joyce, said investigators had found numerous code violations at the club, E2, including a number of locked and blocked doors, and the club was operating in defiance of a month-old court order decreeing that it be shut down.

In a world without a salary cap, the Ravens could envision signing a big-name veteran like James Stewart or Dorsey Levens to be their backup running back. But in the reality of cap jail, they likely will rely on one of two rookies - Chester Taylor or Tellis Redmon - as their insurance policy behind rehabbing star Jamal Lewis. The Ravens cannot make a ripple in a growing free-agent pool until they create additional cap room by restructuring the contracts of Ray Lewis and Peter Boulware.

Ed Hartwell, in the first start of his two-year career, looked worthy of standing side by side with Ray Lewis. Hartwell finished with four tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in the Ravens' 12-6 win over the Detroit Lions in front of 67,421 at Ravens Stadium last night. The Ravens' new 3-4 defensive scheme has a number of inside linebacker blitzes, and Hartwell seemed to take advantage when his number was called. Hartwell sacked Detroit quarterback Mike McMahon and forced a fumble on a third-and-six from the Lions' 31 in the second quarter.

The scene was worse than the result. Running back Chester Taylor had to be carted off late in the morning practice yesterday, putting a temporary damper on what had been a spirited session. Taylor's injury, though, was merely a bruised ankle and his status is day-to-day. "I just got rolled up on," Taylor said. For however long Taylor is out, rookies Tellis Redmon and Dameon Hunter should be the biggest beneficiaries. "Every time an unfortunate injury ... it opens up an opportunity for the next guy," Ravens coach Brian Billick said.

With last night's Class 3A football quarterfinal with Randallstown tied late in the third quarter, Richard Montgomery coach Mike Bonavia switched quarterbacks, telling senior Johnny Redmon, "Be a big-time player." The strong-armed player listened, completing several key passes, including the go-ahead touchdown, to send the Rams to defeat, 26-12, at CCBC-Catonsville. The playoff loss was the fifth in as many years for the Rams (9-2), who hurt their cause with a number of key mistakes. "We beat ourselves," Randallstown coach Anthony Knox said.

SOLDIER'S JOY. By Madison Smartt Bell. Penguin Books. 465 pages. $8.95. IN VIETNAM, Thomas Laidlaw had an unusual accident. The weather was hot, and Laidlaw wasn't wearing boots. "Just these little cotton slippers," he remembers. Some guys drove up and began unloading a truck. Laidlaw offered to help. There were these real heavy cases; they were wooden with metal strips down the edges. One of those strips came loose on the bottom. It was sticking out like a knife blade, and . . ."That had to be the one that got dropped on my foot.

Maryland's golf course industry planned to head back to the state today with a new request to ease water restrictions, as landscapers, sod farmers and other businesses also clamored for relief.The new request -- from a golf course managers' group -- asks that watering of fairways be cut by 30 percent, rather than 80 percent the state has required since Aug. 4.Maryland officials rejected an earlier request from a golf course owners' group for a 10 percent reduction.Sod farmers say they also want state restrictions lifted to allow their customers to water newly replanted grass.

Position: Running back College: Toledo Who he is: Taylor was the Ravens' eighth pick, and the 207th overall selection (sixth round), in the 2002 NFL draft. He rushed for 1,492 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior, good enough to finish as the seventh-leading rusher in the nation. What he will do in camp: Taylor is one of the Ravens' three main running backs, along with incumbent starter Jamal Lewis and free-agent pickup Tellis Redmon. By working hard in the preseason, Taylor could compete with Redmon for the backup job and spur Lewis to train a little harder.

If the past two years serve as precedents, tonight's intrasquad scrimmage will have its share of newsworthy happenings. Last year, the Ravens lost tackle Leon Searcy for the season with a torn triceps muscle, but also found a solid player in running back Jason Brookins. Two years ago, in a scrimmage with the Washington Redskins, the Ravens lost running back Jamal Lewis for most of the preseason with a dislocated elbow. Ravens coaches are hoping to get through tonight largely unscathed while finding a playmaker amongst a host of young faces.

Ravens coach Brian Billick showed no sign of concern about a completely ineffective running game in last night's intrasquad scrimmage. Instead, he shrugged off the showing as something that could have almost been expected. "OK, who'd we have running?" Billick asked. "That's part of it, too. We have some young guys who are working their way up the charts." The Ravens were without starter Jamal Lewis, who is being brought along slowly and has not taken any live hits yet, and backup Chester Taylor, who injured his leg during practice Tuesday and is expected to return next week.
