NEW YORK -- It's a good thing that Cedric Pioline didn't hit Slobodan Damayano with one of his best serves. Damayano might not have been around to talk about it.As it was, the 74-mph second serve that hit Damayano in the head during Pioline's straight-sets defeat to Pete Sampras in yesterday's U.S. Open final was strong enough to leave a mark -- and a memory."

For Austin Bradburn, a fresh cup of coffee, brewed and delivered during the busy early-morning hallway rush, became an unlikely path into the complex social world of his high school. Bradburn and eight fellow Patapsco High School special-education students began brewing coffee in their Patriot Java Stop last December, an idea launched by their teachers as a way to give the students real-world skills for their life after high school. "Nothing we have ever done has given them so many gains," said Dana Evans, who has taught the students with Beth Gray for the past dozen years.

THIS IS what I get for breaking a New Year's resolution four days into the new year - the loss of 40 bucks, feelings of stupidity and guilt, rage against the machines and utter disappointment in my fellow man. Pretty good, huh? A four-in-one deal. Who could ask for more? Look, I don't feel sorry for myself. Things like this happen. Sometimes you're out there, roaming city and suburb like everyone else, and, in a matter of minutes, you become the naked star of your own reality TV show.

NEW YORK - Look what tennis pulled out of its duffel bag: Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, together again. A showdown between two old friends and rivals that serves up nostalgia and anticipation as well as anything under the bright lights of Broadway. Maybe better than Broadway, since this two-man revival is playing in Queens, a louder borough where tennis fans live to show love for the old guys, particularly Americans who refuse to go gently into that good night. Just ask Jimmy Connors.

Some restaurants are hard to figure out. They present themselves as one thing and turn out to be another, or else they're in a continuing state of figuring themselves out. The cool thing about Guy Fieri's Baltimore Kitchen + Bar is how plainly it wears its big beefy heart on its distressed-denim sleeve. You'd have to go out of your way to not know what you're getting into at Guy Fieri's, one of three restaurants at the new Horseshoe Casino Baltimore. And you'd have to have a heart made of stone not to respond, on some level, to its basic good cheer and basic American enthusiasm.

Last fall, Timonium - home to the state fair and a head-spinning number of chain businesses - welcomed a city favorite, Ryleigh's Oyster. Since then, the Baltimore County version (it calls itself Ryleigh's Oyster Hunt Valley) of the Federal Hill staple has seen steady crowds regularly fill its tidy, well-designed space. On a recent Friday evening, with the location's one-year anniversary weeks away, Ryleigh's hummed along at an appropriately brisk pace. It was the end of the workweek for many in the area, and both bar areas (one near the front entrance and another in the back)

Campaigns on Baltimore County's east side are still in full swing, but one outcome is already certain: For the first time in nearly half a century, voters get a new state senator. Democratic Sen. Norman Stone, who took office in 1967, is retiring from the General Assembly. Fellow Democrat John Olszewski Jr., currently a state delegate; Republican Johnny Ray Salling, a steelworker; and unaffiliated candidate Scott Collier are competing to replace him. Stone, who entered the Senate the year Spiro Agnew became governor, is its longest-serving member.

The headline "Howard County applauds Howard County" (Sept. 18) is perfect for this tale of shameless self-promotion. Hanging 242 banners is being spun as a way of attracting tourism. Do you choose your tourist destination based on the locale's libraries, schools or digital prowess? One just can't suspend reality enough to buy into this excuse for spending $28,000 in taxpayer funds. Both the Economic Development Authority and Howard County Tourism are county budget items. This project is offensive on so many levels it may backfire on accolade-obsessed Ken Ulman and candidates Calvin Ball and Courtney Watson.

An Anne Arundel County judge who four years ago shortened the 15-year prison term of a man who had sexually assaulted two girls, ages 5 and 9, ordered the man this week to serve the remaining years of the prison term. Karl L. Johnson, 25, of Severna Park pleaded guilty Monday to violating his probation, according to court records. He was convicted this year in District Court in connection with two domestic cases, a spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office said. Prosecutors criticized Circuit Judge Ronald A. Silkworth in 1999 for releasing Johnson early from prison, where he was serving seven years of a 15-year sentence for rape and battery, and placing him on home detention.

The grant, which comes from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, will expend the Front Door Program to serve 65 families a year, up from 50.
