The Sixth District extends from Curtis Bay to Edmondson Village. It includes some of the city's poorest neighborhoods. Alienation runs so deep that people in Brooklyn make no secret of their desire to secede and join Anne Arundel County.A district like this needs quality representation. Alas, this Southwest Baltimore district was long known as the "Silent Sixth" because its councilmen seldom opened their mouths.This year's election gives residents of the Sixth a chance to upgrade their representation.

At least six General Assembly incumbents were trailing opponents after early primary returns Tuesday evening — but many incumbents were turning back tough challenges. With early results reported from polls across the state, state Sen. James Brochin, the northern Baltimore County Democrat known for an independent streak, led former Del. Connie DeJuliis, a more progressive candidate backed by Gov. Martin O'Malley. "People like independence, and they like someone who will stand up to the establishment," said Brochin, who's voted against several of the governor's tax increases.

Del. Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr. and his 11-year-old son, Jack, representing the third and fourth generations of a storied political family, are knocking on doors near Mount St. Joseph school in Southwest Baltimore. A few blocks away, Del. Keith E. Haynes, the deputy majority whip of the House of Delegates, has an entourage of a dozen people clad in Baltimore black and yellow as he waves to passing motorists in the Irvington business district. And Del. Melvin L. Stukes, who has 20 years of experience in elected office, is working the area's churches, week in and week out. It's the smallest, and one of the poorest, legislative districts in Baltimore, but 44A is perhaps the most fiercely contested.

THE MISCHIEF started when 6th District Councilman Melvin Stukes attended the annual City-Poly football classic in November. He had his daughter with him, 13-year-old Marian Stukes, a student at Francis Scott Key Middle School. "I saw a lot of girls screaming and hollering and talking about the stats and getting really excited," Marian told members of the Baltimore City Council's education committee Wednesday evening. Marian's dad is the committee chairman and had decided to tackle the issue of whether city public schools should field football teams for girls.

City Councilman Melvin L. Stukes wasn't aware of the extent of the lack of funding for Baltimore public high school athletics until the issue hit home. Stukes' daughter, a student at Edmondson High School, complained to him about the heat and sweat of gym class. It seemed to him it was nothing that a shower couldn't solve. But when he visited the West Baltimore school, he found out that showers wouldn't help - because they didn't exist. "I was shocked when I first found out," Stukes said.

When analyzing fifth-ranked McDonogh's 31-15 win yesterday over host Mount St. Joseph, there's really no need to look at the stat sheet.The only numbers you will need to know are 17 and 126.The former is the uniform number of McDonogh speedster Dwayne Stukes. The latter is how many yards the 5-foot-11 junior moved the ball on two consecutive plays, turning a close game into a rout.At his own 46 with six seconds left in the first half, Stukes ran a fly pattern down the left sideline, blew past single coverage, caught a long floater from quarterback Bobby Sabelhaus and won a race to the end zone to make it 17-7 as the half expired.

Every night Levi Stukes walks on the court for the University of Georgia, he finds himself in a perfect situation. The 6-foot-1 freshman guard from Randallstown High has the luxury of starting with four seniors in the basketball tradition-rich Southeastern Conference. "They [seniors] can tell me to slow down a little or don't get down," said Stukes said from Athens, Ga., yesterday as the Bulldogs prepared to head to Atlanta for the SEC tournament. "I believe we can win this tournament if we all play the way we're capable of."

Years ago, around town, any mention of the Pittsburgh Steelers would have been met with a shrug. Between 1958, when the Colts won their first NFL championship, and 1968, when they won their third, Baltimore played the Steelers just once. It was a game that Charlie Stukes won't forget. A tall and physical cornerback from Maryland State (now UMES), Stukes starred in a 41-7 rout of Pittsburgh in 1968, returning an interception 60 yards for a touchdown. The Colts swiped three passes that day and ran them all back for TDs. Stukes' steal, off Steelers quarterback Dick Shiner (Maryland)

Has Del. Melvin Stukes ever had any bones broken, like the woman who was brutally beaten on the No. 27 bus? He didn't let on. But the former Baltimore city councilman let it be known that he'd had his heart broken. Which is why he could relate to Sarah Kreager's attackers. "Please tell me what you would do if someone SPAT on you," Stukes wrote in an e-mail. "In a heat[ed] exchange of words.

WHY DO ALL these things have to happen around the same time? It's getting so a columnist would have to write seven days a week to keep up with all this stuff. Since that's not how we operate around here, I'll have to touch on several topics in the same column. So here goes. A bill to permit slot machines in Maryland once again failed to pass in the legislature, and I have a pretty good idea as to why. No, it's not because those Democrats opposed to slots do so on ethical grounds. They know better than that.

Randallstown junior guard Levi Stukes is quite confident these days. So confident, in fact, he had two promises for top-ranked Douglass after the third-ranked Rams' 98-68 rout of Northwestern in a 3A North Regional quarterfinal last night in Randallstown. "Guaranteed we're going to beat them and score 100," Stukes said. Last night, at least, both Stukes and his Randallstown teammates looked as though they were capable of backing up his claim. In just three quarters, Stukes scored a game-high 31 points on 10-for-20 shooting from the field and 9-for-9 from the line, on top of seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and a blocked shot.
