Robert Cradle had achieved his goal of owning a successful barbershop with an Odenton establishment that employed seven full-time workers and served a steady stream of customers coming in for that just-right haircut. But even as he made his business dream come true, he also noticed a steady stream of people taking up residence at an adjacent homeless shelter. Cradle discovered that many at the shelter couldn't afford to maintain good grooming habits while they were struggling to get back on their feet.

Over the years, many thoughtful people have advised me that I write too many columns about tasteless and offensive topics such as cow flatulence and Phyllis Schlafly. That is why today, in an effort to turn over a new leaf, I have selected a wholesome topic that the entire family can enjoy: tennis.This topic was suggested by Sue Ann Quinn of Beaumont, Texas, who describes herself as a "tennis nut." Sue Ann writes in to ask:"Was Monica Seles unshaven at the French Open? I swear I saw hair sticking out from her armpits.

The first thing they do to new male students at the Naval Academy is shave their heads. So it is a bit of a shock to see the guys sporting ... mustaches. But the button-downed Brigade of Midshipmen has received permission from the top of the chain of command to grow whatever lip fuzz they can muster during November - which for the last decade has been known as "Movember," an effort to raise awareness and research funds for men's health. It is Midshipman Mustache Month at an institution that forbids facial hair on students, but for the first time in its history is allowing it because of the persistence of a Mid who spent months petitioning his superiors.

The president-elect was coming to Baltimore, and police officers had their orders. They had to keep the crowds orderly, keep Barack Obama safe and look presentable. Officers needed to be "clean-shaven. " That was a problem for Anthony L. Brown, an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department. He says he has been diagnosed with pseudofolliculitis barbae, a skin condition nicknamed "razor bumps" that can cause infection and scarring "as a consequence of shaving. " That didn't stop the department from enforcing its orders for officers on the presidential detail, according to a $17 million lawsuit that Brown, who is now retired, filed in Baltimore Circuit Court this month.

Men can be really funny about their faces. The preferred facial cleanser is whatever's in the soap dish. The shaving method usually is hasty; improvised long ago from watching Dad, who watched his dad. To finish, men will clench their teeth and slap themselves with an after-shave that's supposed to sting, right? Any other way just wouldn't be, manly.In the 1990s, though, men finally are acknowledging that dermatological indifference will win them skin problems -- not virility points. More men than ever are seeking better ways to maintain their faces.

Shaving is a ritual men have been performing since . . . well, we don't really know when, do we?Ancient man didn't have the benefit of hot-lather machines, electric shavers, disposable plastic or twin blades. Too bad. We do know that the oldest-known metal razors date to 3,000 B.C., and the ancient Egyptians often were buried with their silver and bronze razors.Although modern man may moan about this daily chore, it is surely made easier with technology's intervention in removing the daily average of 15,500 facial hairs.

Bernie O'Brien is a big burly guy with a crop of red hair. But sometime after noon Sunday, he'll be sporting a shiny bald head. So too will at least 80 other people milling about Fado Irish Pub, the Annapolis bar that O'Brien manages. It's for a good cause. Charitable events usually conjure up images of adults in evening attire attending a gala, or of running a few miles and going home with a tee shirt as a memento — not a something as personal as a shaved head. But for the past 10 years, O'Brien has been a member of the "baldtenders team," a local group of bartenders who shave their heads as participants in an annual St. Baldrick's Foundation event that raises money for pediatric cancer research.

CHICAGO -- The trip for which he was packing, the one to Fresno State for a game with the Bulldogs today, long had been advertised as the last he would take as the coach of Nevada-Las Vegas. But now the circumstances were altered considerably, and Jerry Tarkanian once more was engaged in battle.This one seeks to keep him on the job for another season, to rescind the agreement he signed last June that obliges him to step down at this season's end.This battle arose after reports alleged the FBI was looking into possible point shaving by some of last year's Rebels; already his attorney had delivered a letter to UNLV President Robert Maxson declaring Tarkanian's intentions.

The clean-shaven man who stands accused of murderin State Police Cpl. Theodore D. Wolf will retain his freedom to shave.Prosecutors who are seeking the death penalty for Eric Tirado, 27, had asked the Howard County Circuit Court to compel Tirado to restore his face to the dark, unshaven appearance it had around the time of Wolf's murder on March 29, 1990. They charged that Tirado was trying to alter his appearance to frustrate trial witnesses trying to identify him.After seeing pictures of Tirado in varying stages of facial growth and after hearing testimony from pre-trial witnesses who said they could recognize Tirado with or without his beard, Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr., decided against an anti-shaving order yesterday.

After opening the season with back-to-back losses, Washington College has racked up six consecutive wins and moved to the top of the Centennial Conference with a 3-0 record. And some of the team's resurgence can be traced to an emerging defense. A unit that surrendered 10 goals per game last year has trimmed that average to 6.4 in eight contests this season. Coach Jeff Shirk said close defensemen Bryan Botti, Michael Pierandri and Jack Vermeil, short-stick defensive midfielders David Lundquist and Morgan Braendel, long-stick midfielder Stephen Pappas and goalkeeper Peter Stewart have gotten comfortable in their second year in the unit's schemes.
