FREDERICK -- Once Adam Loewen finally reached the mound at Harry Grove Stadium last night, he didn't stay there for long. Loewen had to wait through a 1 hour, 13 minute rain delay at the start of his first injury-rehabilitation game at Single-A Frederick, as storms accompanied by lightning and heavy winds kept passing through the region. He dispatched the three Wilmington batters he faced on 14 pitches, 11 of them strikes. Loewen retired leadoff hitter Derrick Robinson on a soft liner to second base and struck out the next two hitters, including Kurt Mertins on a high fastball to end the inning.

Lisa Renshaw really knows how to hurt a guy.Renshaw, a Republican from Severn, began her run for Congress yesterday, assailing U.S. Representative Tom McMillen, D-4th, as a "Dukakis Democrat." Renshaw didn't spare the L-word, either, in her assault on McMillen."Tom McMillen may have been a center on the basketball court, butin Congress, he has been playing far left of center for too long," Renshaw said. "Tom McMillen, the basketball player turned congressman,is so liberal he's out of bounds."

EASTON -- If Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest, R-1st, felt a shudder of deja vu yesterday, it's understandable.When the Republican upstart was trying to unseat the district's incumbent congressman in 1990, he signed a pledge opposing any increase in taxes and challenged his opponent to do the same.Mr. Gilchrest went on to win a heated contest against former Rep. Roy P. Dyson, a Democrat from Southern Maryland who dismissed the no-new-tax pledge as an underdog publicity stunt.In a near re-creation of the rumpus, Mr. Gilchrest yesterday found himself holding a new, but almost identical, anti-tax pledge.

The 1992 congressional campaign is not yet over, and already it's onhome video.As the March 3 primary approaches, Republican voters in the 1st Congressional District are being wooed at home via a six-minute video, the first of its kind in Maryland.Lisa Renshaw of Severn, who wants to unseat Eastern Shore incumbent Wayne T. Gilchrest, delivered a video appeal to 15,000 Anne Arundel households last week. Media consultants and party officials say they expect other candidates to follow."Video mail is the hot thing of the day. You are going to see it pushed to the max," said Jay Smith, president of Smith & Harroff, an Alexandria, Va.-based media consultant that pioneered political video mail in a New Jersey gubernatorial race three years ago.The Renshaw video, produced at a cost of $2 each, outlines the Severn resident's background and contrasts her views with Gilchrest.

Lisa Renshaw never has to ask herself what she'd sacrifice for success.At age 21, she found out.She had no money, no free time and no idea how to run the failing parking garage she'd just taken over. But worse than that, she had no one to work the night shift.So for three long years, she spent her evenings holed up in a closet of a room just north of Penn Station, shooing rats away from the carpet remnant that doubled as her bed.On a good day, the garage made $200.On a bad one, she was held up at knifepoint.

AT WEEK'S END, at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Baltimore County, came the families of the fallen. Many return every year now, a sweet extended family of mourners, a community of the bereaved, gathered for what is now the 14th annual Fallen Heroes Day.Their people went down protecting others. They were police or firefighters, or correctional officers or rescue personnel, and this annual day at the cemetery, with officers gathered from all over the state, is a way of remembering, and of restating the obvious: Their dying wasn't in vain, and their lives counted for something.

The real stars of the touring production of "The King and I" at the Mechanic Theatre aren't the king and Hayley Mills, though she gets top billing. The real stars are the lavish, Tony Award-winning sets and costumes.From the opening image of a seaport bustling with beggars, fruit peddlers and scurrying children, to the first glimpse of the throne room at the palace, where the glistening gold decor and costumes of the precision dancers suggest a magnificent gilt music box, it's easy to see the splendor that appealed to Anna Leonowens, British governess to the royal children in 19th-century Siam.

Giraud Foster's and Norman Barker's photographs, at Gomez, have titles that make them sound as if they belong in some arcane research project, not an art gallery: "Thoracic Fish Vertebrae," "Ammonite, Dactyliocceros," "Brachulite," "Stromatolite."Actually, the titles refer to fossils, millions or even billions of years old, which Foster, a physician and archaeologist, and Barker, a medical photographer, have photographed and enlarged up to 50 times their actual size.We have all seen enough pictures of fossils and life under the microscope to recognize these as manifestations of the natural world -- and not only the ones that have obvious natural forms, such as the shell-like spiral of "Pyritize Ammonite" or the leaf-like forms of "Brachulite."

Forrest Hunter Renshaw is wearing a white Bedrock Police Department helmet and singing "Thank You, I Am a Life That Was Changed" in sweet, lilting tones. As he performs this favorite song from church -- all four verses -- he has the serene look of those lucky children who have no reason not to trust the world.His is a 5-year-old's life about negotiating games with three sisters, about riding his bike, about playing guitar and harmonica, about dismantling anything that has screws and -- cross your fingers -- putting it back together.

A grass-roots advocacy group aiming to phase out "career politicians" has succeeded in putting a measure on the Nov. 8 ballot that will allow Baltimore voters to decide if the mayor and others should be limited to two terms in office.The measure, sponsored by Marylanders for Term Limits, would apply to all city officials -- including the comptroller and City Council members -- elected in November 1995. If it passes, elected officials could serve no more than two four-year terms."Incumbency is a terrible, terrible thing," said Lisa Renshaw, chairwoman of the advocacy group.
