- Tight end has never been an easy position for NFL scouts to evaluate. The skills required to play it at a high level simply don't mesh that often in one body. There are scores of big, tall guys with soft hands who can't block, and plenty of lumbering, rhinoceros-size blockers who simply can't run or catch. And finding one with the right blend of the two strengths has become that much harder in recent years because fewer and fewer high school and college teams are using tight ends in their spread offenses.

Michael Steele's multi-tasking kid sister billed his Senate campaign more than $37,000 for "catering/web" services provided by her investment company. Serving up coffee, coding in Java and betting on Jamaican Blue Mountain futures - all in a day's work at Brown Sugar Unlimited LLC. Even with all that catering, Web wizardry and investing going on, Monica Turner somehow found time to be a pediatrician, mom and ex-Mrs. Mike Tyson. How did she keep all those balls in the air? Sibling rivalry, baby.

Arundel coach Lee Rogers wasn't disappointed with his team's play inyesterday's 41-37 girls basketball loss to visiting Bay Division rival Broadneck.Rogers wore a smile on his face after the game, but so did the Bruins' 5-foot-7 guard Ava Tasker. She went 7-for-9 from the field in scoring her game-high 16 points for Broadneck (12-3, 5-1), ranked No. 7 by The Baltimore Sun.Rogers no doubt would have been a tad happier if he could have slowed her down.He admitted paying more attention to Tasker's 6-1 teammate, Jen Chapman, who was coming off a 16-point, 13-rebound performance with two blocks in a 51-47 loss to Old Mill.

For some ex-coaches and players, the playing field and all its trappings issue a Circe-like call, beckoning them back to the site of their joys and triumphs.So far, CBS football analyst Steve Tasker has been able to resist any pangs of regret that he might have ended his 14-year career a bit prematurely.Well, there was that once, when Tasker's parents visited a few weeks ago, and a tape of the 1992-93 season, one in which his Buffalo Bills made a Super Bowl trip, was played.But Tasker, a five-time Pro Bowl special teams performer, says that, most of the time, he's been too busy getting ready to do games on the weekend with his partner Gus Johnson to miss the NFL."

For nearly a decade, Rose Tasker has strived to improve the performance of Van Bokkelen Elementary School on state exams despite the problems its students face, including poverty and frequent family moves. The Severn school has made significant gains under Tasker's leadership, but the retiring principal recently got some bad news: Van Bokkelen failed to meet two of the standards in reading and math set by the state under the federal No Child Left Behind law. It might seem a tough way to say goodbye for Tasker, who was singled out earlier this month by Anne Arundel County Schools Superintendent Eric J. Smith for creating a strong foundation at Van Bokkelen.

Cherise Tasker is less than enamored with her cable television provider. When she calls with a problem, she said, she often is placed on hold for more than half an hour. For months, certain channels have flickered at random from color to black-and-white, and the sound and moving mouths haven't matched. For these indignities along with Internet services, she pays her cable company nearly $125 a month. "They say they don't know what's causing the problem and they don't know when they can fix it," said Tasker, 41, a Columbia resident.

After more than a decade of state monitoring, Van Bokkelen Elementary School finally has overcome the labels emphasizing its struggles. The school system successfully appealed the state's ruling that special-education pupils did not make adequate progress on recent state tests. As a result, Van Bokkelen was taken off the list of schools in need of improvement. "I think we really have turned the corner at Van Bokkelen," said Superintendent Eric J. Smith. Staff members learned the news Wednesday at a summer school training session with other schools that have a high proportion of children from low-income families.

Tasker, 40, of no fixed address about 7:30 a.m. Saturday in the side yard of a home in the first block of Stewart Ave. Tasker had suffered severe facial and head injuries, police said. He was flown to Shock Trauma, where he died at 4:40 a.m. yesterday.

Gilman's coaches are known for keeping their eyes on their rivals, but this season, they've also had to keep an eye on one of their own - Sean Price. That's because when the Greyhounds' junior running back/defensive back isn't taking over a game, there's a chance he might be trying to coach it. "He'll try to be the head coach, both coordinators, and has, let's just say, a very expansive vocabulary," said Gilman coach Biff Poggi. "He's big, fast, passionate, provides a lot of enthusiasm for the team."

WASHINGTON - It's poised at Maryland's borders, 15 feet tall with sap that causes skin to blister and burn in sunlight. Giant hogweed, whose scientific name is Heracleum mantegazzianum, has been found in Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, and officials fear it could migrate into Maryland and become a public health hazard. It is related to carrots and parsley, but the white-flowered hogweed can grow up to 20 feet high with 5-foot-wide leaves. While carrot and parsley leaves can cause rashes in people sensitive to them, the sap of the giant hogweed makes skin more sensitive to ultraviolet radiation and causes severe burns and blisters, said Alan Tasker, coordinator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Federal Noxious Weed Program.
