Acupuncture may have saved Harry. Severe back problems led to partial paralysis for the 11-year-old black Labrador retriever who was named after Harry Potter. After a back operation, Harry was still in immense pain and couldn't move his back legs. His owner, Margaret Thompson of Charles Village , immediately thought of acupuncture. "I'm an acupuncture person. I have done acupuncture myself," says Thompson. "I read how acupuncture in animals produces dramatic results. " So she contacted Fred Wolfson, owner of Acupuncture for All in Mount Washington, who generally treats humans but also works on animals.

THOSE SEEKING RELIEF from life's emotional or physical pains might find help at the "Introduction to Reiki" workshop, sponsored by the Women's Place, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 7 at Carroll County General Hospital. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese healing technique devised in the late 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui. According to practitioners, reiki taps into the universal life force that surrounds all living things. Channeling this force into the body can enhance the effectiveness of medical treatments or ease emotional distress.

Kim Holland's biker-chick days were over not long after they began, with the 46-year-old smashed between her Harley and a guardrail in Elkridge, and a bystander saving her right leg by taking off his belt and making it into a tourniquet before paramedics rushed her to the hospital. A week after she arrived at the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center - a week filled with operations and skin grafts, narcotics by pill and by pump - she lay in bed. The lights down low, soft music playing to drown out the buzzing and beeping and ringing that make up a hospital's soundtrack, two women slowly waved their arms over Holland's broken body, as if trying to push away the pain.

The Rev. Laura Cannon specializes in two words: I do. And those two words have taken her all over the mid-Atlantic, from hotels and historic mansions to sandy beaches, museums and restaurants to the intimacy of a couple's home - even surprise nuptials at an annual chili feast. But Cannon didn't set out to become a wedding officiant. It's something the 31-year-old Ellicott City resident stumbled into, and it clicked. "For me, the greatest joy is being part of someone's most special day," she says.

It all started with a bottle of hair dye. When nothing from veterinary medicine to acupuncture to herbal remedies could address her cat Victor's refusal to use his litter box anymore, an increasingly desperate Terri Diener contacted an animal communicator and was promptly asked if she colored her hair. She did, and it turned out the product she used was giving the cat severe headaches and depression - no wonder he wouldn't enter the bathroom where his facilities also were kept.

A Wicca devotee and small businessman from Dundalk came forward yesterday with a photocopy of a lottery ticket showing the winning numbers to Friday's Mega Millions drawing and claimed a share of the estimated $330 million jackpot, though lottery officials have yet to verify his assertion. "I kind of screamed, and then I kind of cried," said Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett, 40, retelling the story of how he and his wife, Denise, greeted the news yesterday morning. Maryland State Lottery officials said they had yet to see the ticket and confirm it was a winner, but planned to meet with Bartlett, a bookkeeping service operator and father of two, on Tuesday.
