Katie Rue had no idea where she would land when she started jumping off couches as a toddler. So her mother and father, Rosie and Bill, decided to give her some guidance at a young age. "They put me in a gymnastics school when I was 2 and I had no idea what I was doing until I was 7 years old," said the standout University of Florida freshman gymnast from Garrison Forest School in Owings Mills. Rue and her Gators teammates landed in the 12-team NCAA championships last weekend at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion and advanced to the Super Six, where they finished fifth in the nation with a 196.80 score.

It is fitting that as Leslie B. Dunner's tenure at the helm of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra winds down, soprano Kishna Davis is coming to town for one more concert under the maestro's baton. ASO aficionados will recall that it was Davis who appeared as an 11th-hour replacement soloist at Dunner's ASO debut in February 1998. She brought last-minute repertoire with her as well. But if the conductor or the soprano, a Howard County native, felt undue pressure at having been brought together so late in the game for Dunner's audition concert, neither betrayed it in performance.

The growth that Griff Bell's boat rental company could have had this season is gone with the rain - he's seen a day of wet weather for every day of sunshine and sailing. Tent rentals, on the other hand, are booming. No one wants a washed-out outdoor party. "They call the day before: `It's going to rain, I need something!'" said Terry Chiveral, a manager for ABC Party and Tent Rental Center in Baltimore, which is getting an unusual number of last-minute reservations. The near-biblical downpours this spring and summer have brought headaches for fair-weather ventures, while hot-tub builders, tanning salons and lawn mower operators bask in water-propelled profits.

Running back Ray Rice rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns, quarterback Joe Flacco completed almost 63 percent of his passes en route to 270 yards, and rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith amassed 165 yards on six catches in the Ravens' 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Nov. 20. But the one aspect that stuck out to Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis was the team's inability to avoid penalties, especially of the pre-snap variety. Of the Bengals' six penalties that day, three were false starts that put the offense in tough spots.

Jennifer Debnam cringes every time she hears a television report or reads a newspaper article about the H1N1 flu pandemic and - inevitably - comes to the part where the disease is called "swine flu." Debnam raises 12,000 hogs a year on her family's Kent County farm and she, like others in the industry, is losing megabucks this year - which they attribute to the misperception that you can catch flu from eating pork chops or a plate of ribs. Exports (and prices) are down sharply as Russia and China have put major restrictions on American pork products after questioning the health of the nation's hog population, experts said.

"Anything that doesn't fit into the political appointees' ideological, theological or political agenda is ignored, marginalized or simply buried," said Dr. Richard H. Carmona, surgeon general from 2002 to 2006, to a House committee.

Instead, it involved a wrestler dressed in pink socks, lime-green headgear and sporting a ponytail who finished second in the final of the Class 4A-3A 103-pound weight class.

WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress said yesterday that they may seek to repeal a measure that was meant to put a lid on executive pay but may have instead triggered ever-richer stock option deals. At issue is a 1993 tax provision that barred companies from deducting salaries above $1 million as a business expense unless they were tied to performance. In response, many companies curtailed executive salaries and made up the difference with the stock option grants that are at the heart of an unfolding controversy.
