HERE ARE some things I did not do this summer: Straighten closets, write my play, organize my desk, turn my mattress, clean out the toy box/garage/basement/attic. I did not go through my linens, figure out how to use a bookmark on the Web, plant new perennials or play tennis. I didn't send my drapes to the cleaner, I didn't get my winter coats cleaned and mended, I still haven't gone through last year's handouts from the school. Frankly, I've done darn near nothing. I did not enrich, enhance, advance, promote or otherwise improve my children.

Ruth Lee Smith, who inspired a generation of young swimmers and divers in Central Maryland, died of cancer Sunday at the Brightwood Center in Lutherville. She was 74. Never taking a dime for her efforts, Mrs. Smith was for many years the Lochearn Community Club representative to the Central Maryland Swim League, with which she had been associated since it was organized in 1973. "She was single-handedly responsible for a thousand children and 50 to 100 coaches being involved in swimming," said John Clark, program director of the Western Family YMCA in Catonsville and a former swimmer, coach and manager at Lochearn.

JIM MATHIAS, the Democratic mayor of Ocean City, was driving to Salisbury yesterday for a luncheon with a Republican women's group, when he was asked, "What do they want to talk to you about?" "Like everybody else," he laughed. "They're demanding better weather." They'll have to get in line to put in their order. In the first 27 days of May, there was one recorded day of sunshine. There were six days of mixed clouds and sun. Every other day, say the drudges who follow such things for a living, the weather was rainy or cloudy.

A popular Baltimore County swim club was negligent two years ago when ill-equipped lifeguards responded slowly to cries for help after a 24-year-old competitive swimmer disappeared, and later drowned, in the deep waters of its quarry, a county Circuit Court jury decided yesterday. Jamee Eben's parents, aunt and sisters watched as the jury foreman announced that the Beaver Dam Swimming Club must pay Eben's estate and parents $760,000 - an amount less than the Ebens had asked for in their lawsuit, but more than enough, they said, to send a message that the swim club should strengthen its safety regulations.

When 24-year-old Jamee Eben drowned two years ago at Beaver Dam Swimming Club, lifeguards at the popular Baltimore County swimming quarry all but ignored her friends' pleas for help, a lawyer for Eben's parents told a jury yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court. It was the first day of trial in the $6 million lawsuit Marilyn and Terry Eben filed last year against the swim club. The Ebens' attorney, Margaret M. McKee, was trying to show how the club's negligence caused the Columbia woman's death on July 2, 2000.
