When the Carolina Panthers face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl next Sunday, two of the most reliable finger-pointers in pro football will be on display. Place kicker John Kasay can be seen extending a forefinger skyward after his field goals and extra points. Teammate Mike Minter, a defensive back, is quick to raise a finger after interceptions and fumble recoveries. These Panthers, according to North Carolinians who follow them closely, are among a growing number of athletes who make the gesture a reflection of their Christian faith.

He strode toward the plate, a California schoolboy with a resolute look and a chance to win the game. But before he stepped in, Matt Hobgood looked skyward, knelt and, without a word, wrote his late father's initials in the dirt. R ... L ... H. Then he waggled his bat, swung from the heels and drove the first pitch 400 feet for a home run. The crowd went nuts. Circling the bases, Hobgood raised both arms toward heaven and whispered, Thanks, Pops. For the first 18 years, Matt Hobgood's life has played out like a movie.

The distance from Earth to Mars ranges from 33.9 million to 249 million miles. It might also be measured in the minutes it takes light to flit between the two planets, the months it takes a spaceship to travel there, or the millenniums in which people have pointed toward the sky, their imaginations on fire. Tonight, if all goes well, a NASA spacecraft will touch down on Mars for the first time in more than four years when the Phoenix Mars Lander alights on the Red Planet's frigid northern polar region.

School kids and skiers aren't the only ones who waited anxiously for a good snow. Rukert Terminals Corp. on Baltimore's harbor handles the bulk of salt spread on icy roads from Southern Pennsylvania to Northern Virginia. The company normally stockpiles about a half-million tons of salt from Mexico and Chile before winter and receives more throughout the season. But with the relatively snowless new year leading up to this weekend, the storage domes around town remained full and largely untouched.

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. -- Bernard Singleton wonders who slipped past his white lattice fence and dug up his garden. His neighbors heard nothing. His dog did not bark. But one night not long ago, someone cleaned him out. The loot: ginseng. Its worth: $2,500. Green gold, they call it. No other herb growing in the woods hereabouts is worth as much. For centuries, Asians have revered its gnarly, pale roots for their supposed invigorating and rejuvenating powers -- so much so that the wild crop in that part of the world is nearly gone.
