Suzana Pesa was disgusted by the images of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that she saw on television. She jumped on the Internet and was soon linked to a Facebook effort to gather hair clippings from local salons to make hair booms to soak up the waves of black, greasy gook. "When it happened, I was really upset," said Pesa, a dental assistant living in Mount Vernon. "I was looking for anything I could do to help. " In two weeks, Pesa gathered two garbage bags filled with hair clippings from 10 salons in Baltimore.

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a spectacular rescue of Humphrey the whale, dozens of volunteers and members of the Coast Guard towed the lethargic humpback from the muddy tidal flat where he was stuck overnight and herded him out into San Francisco Bay yesterday.By nightfall, the Coast Guard reported that the whale was last sighted north of San Francisco and that he was swimming on a course that could take him under the Golden Gate Bridge and back into the ocean.An estimated 4,000 cheering onlookers lined the shore at high tide in the afternoon to watch as rescuers slipped a harness over the errant whale's head and as a Coast Guard boat pulled him backward into deeper water.

Maryland Bays owner John Liparini is on the phone daily trying to keep his soccer team alive."I haven't given up, although I probably should," said Liparini, who, with co-owner John Koskinen, is trying to find investors to contribute $400,000. "I hope we're able to hold it together and play again in 1992. Every day someone comes up to me and offers to help with a thousand dollars. I thank them, but that's not the kind of investors I need. You have to be able to lose the money if things don't work out. What I hope is that I can find what we need and those people will use their money to buy season tickets."

It might prove an impossible task for any one human, but if I had to elect a "czar" to restore the Chesapeake Bay's health, Don Boesch would be a leading candidate. The president of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science knows the estuary from the ground up - he began his scientific career nearly 40 years ago studying the worms and other organisms populating the bay's bottom. Today Boesch's perspective on coastal water quality issues, and the politics of them, runs as broad and deep as anyone's in the world.

SAN FRANCISCO - The proud owner of the San Francisco Giants stands in the upper deck at brand-new Pacific Bell Park, nearly 400 feet from home plate, and points toward one of the most beautiful cityscapes in America. The Bay Bridge rises majestically in the distance. Ships navigate scenic San Francisco Bay. There is a glimpse of downtown and a view of Oakland on the other side of the water. Peter McGowan, who presided over the construction of the first privately financed major league facility in 35 years, still can't get over it. "These," he says, "are supposed to be the worst seats in the house."
