LOS ANGELES -- Laurence M. Powell, the Los Angeles police officer who delivered the majority of baton blows against black motorist Rodney G. King, rested his case without taking the witness stand, a surprise development that rocked the civil rights trial of the officers.Officer Powell's lawyer, Michael P. Stone, has said for weeks that Officer Powell would take the stand in his own defense and announced as late as Tuesday that Officer Powell would be a witness. But lawyers for the other officers have expressed misgivings about Officer Powell's testifying, and during a meeting Tuesday the attorneys agreed that, despite Officer Powell's strong desire to testify, he should not take the stand.

Walter Fullwood strode up to the window of the Snowball Stand in Woodstock on a recent, steamy afternoon and handed over a bag of four "empties" before placing his carryout order. One of the stand's original customers, he has made weekly summer pilgrimages from his Ellicott City home of 42 years to the nearby rural spot since it opened in 1975. He has also made a habit of returning the cardboard containers as a courtesy. Fullwood requested four of the 101 varieties of the tasty treat Tuesday, including chocolate with a center of marshmallow for his wife, Marilyn, and plain vanilla for Winston, their 2-year-old Australian shepherd.

Alex Scott died last summer, just when most of the horses in today's Preakness were beginning careers as 2-year-olds. Hope springs eternal for promising 2-year-old thoroughbreds. But for Alex, who was found to have cancer two days before her first birthday, hope ended Aug. 1 when she was 8. For 7 1/2 years, she had fought bravely through six surgeries and seemingly endless radiation and chemotherapy. When Alex was 4, she told her parents she wanted to operate a lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

NEW YORK - The Martha Stewart show opens today in federal court in Manhattan, with the domestic goddess ready to take off the kitchen mitts and fight back on the witness stand. Stewart has been undergoing mock cross-examinations and is eager to testify at her trial on conspiracy, securities fraud and obstruction of justice charges, say her lawyers and others familiar with her thinking. "Of course the defendant wants to testify," said co-counsel Robert Morvillo, who declined to discuss specifics of her pretrial preparation.

The stand appears at the edge of a driveway along Pleasantville Road. It is a small, round patio table laden with fat tomatoes, green peppers, eggplant, beets and summer squash that Michael Donhauser has spent the past few months nurturing from seed to harvest. Donhauser, a retired grocery store manager, spends hours each day puttering in the two garden plots he cultivates behind his tidy Fallston home and his son's house across the two-lane road. He weeds and waters, plants and picks, tills and toils.

Here's one thing you weren't going to hear last week from fans at the University of Florida's spring football practices: "Down in front." After all, nobody can sit. Coach's orders. A sign at Sanders Practice Field reminds spectators of new coach Ron Zook's rule. As you are aware, Coach Zook has stated that this is a "WORK AREA." Therefore the coaches and athletes request that you stand while observing practice. If you are unable to stand due to a medical hardship, please alert the staff before entering the facility.

Dr. Michael Ain stands 4 feet 3. It's the first thing you notice. There's no way around it. He rolls his green surgical pants around the ankles. He climbs a step-stool to reach the operating table. Even then, his colleagues stand a foot or so above him.He's an orthopedic surgeon, a specialty usually reserved for the jocks of medicine. Ain doesn't exactly fit the stereotype, but he did wrestle in high school, and now he golfs on weekends and fixes bones with big power tools that could tear down walls.

Golf not only has rules of play. Being a social game, it has routines of etiquette. Here are some pointers: Stand aside: No one should move, talk, stand close to, or directly behind, the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke. Hold back: Do not hit a shot until players in front are out of range. Yelling "fore" never substitutes for endangering another player with a hit ball. Give way: When looking for a lost ball, allow the group behind you to play through.
