MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Paulette Crawford-Webb felt giddy when her daughter called her at work to say two military men were at the door. Her son, Army Staff Sgt. Morgan Kennon, was due home soon from Iraq for her 47th birthday. The "military men" had to be Morgan; her son and daughter were pulling a prank. "My baby's home!" she sang out to her pharmacy co-workers that day last November. Instead of his smile, she got the news every soldier's parent dreads. Her son was killed by a rocket-propelled grenade in the soft light after dawn.

For most of its existence, the North Baltimore Aquatic Club was associated with female swimmers driven to Olympic gold by a taskmaster coach. The NBAC's deepest roots, however, involve boys, one who nearly drowned in the stream that bisects Baltimore and another playing alongside it at Meadowbrook, one of the city's favorite summer haunts. Now another has grown into a young man reaching for history at the 2004 Olympics. No swimmer has had as long an uninterrupted run with the NBAC as Michael Phelps.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- Preparing for a keep-them-guessing strategy in their Washington-area sniper plot, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo scouted more than 100 potential shooting sites in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, a psychiatrist for the teen-age sniper suspect testified yesterday. "I believe there were over 100 locations in this entire area," Dr. Neil Blumberg told jurors in Malvo's capital murder trial. The plan was to "go to different places and keep the authorities not knowing where the next shooting was going to occur," the psychiatrist said on cross-examination.

THE KREMLIN'S shocking and fascinating persecution of the Russian oil giant Yukos dramatically ups the stakes - in Iraq. Who'd want to commit to crucial long-term oil deals with a country that enforces its own draconian laws as capriciously and cavalierly as Russia does? No one. Does Russia still offer the possibility of taking over from the Middle East any time soon as principal supplier of the world's petroleum? No way. The whole sordid, and still unfolding, episode shows that there cannot be any reliable, predictable alternative to Middle East oil for the foreseeable future.

Howard Community College took a hard look yesterday at what it would do if there were a terrorist attack nearby. The college's emergency response team, operations staff and volunteer building monitors gathered in a meeting room at the Columbia campus and walked through a fictional scenario involving a nuclear bomb exploding at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The college is the second of several county organizations working through simulated disasters. The "table top" exercises are organized by the county's Community Emergency Response Network (CERN)

KFAR MIT EL-EZZ, Egypt - The narrow streets in this village in the fertile Nile Delta are made of mud baked hard under an unforgiving sun. Children play barefoot. Traffic jams occur only when donkey carts, goats and roosters vie for the same bare patch of dirt. But even here, far from the choking exhaust fumes of Cairo, and far from the universities and newspaper headlines that feed anti-war fervor, the American-led invasion of Iraq has taken its toll. The farmers here are hemmed in between the Nile and other villages and thus find it impossible to expand their fields, no matter how large their families become.

Baltimore school officials are considering shutting one of the city's largest and most troubled high schools and dispersing its 2,300 students to other facilities this fall - a decision that would ripple down through the grades in the city's east-side schools. The proposal to close Lake Clifton-Eastern High School in Northeast Baltimore was one of three floated at a board meeting yesterday as a way to break up a school that was considered to be too big and too chaotic. The school has a history of discipline problems, high dropout rates and low attendance.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Wake Forest, the best team in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season, has all the components for making a long run in March. In senior forward Josh Howard, the Demon Deacons have a national Player of the Year candidate. Freshman guard Justin Gray exhibits the kind of swagger and poise a team needs in hostile NCAA tournament environs. And sophomore forward Vytas Danelius has made a reputation of playing big in big games. The main ingredient Wake Forest is missing is hype.
