WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The talent scouts who grade high school football prospects track their picks through college and into the NFL. The touts make pronouncements about their ability to gaze into the future, but did any project Drew Brees as a Heisman Trophy candidate and a first-round draft choice four years ago? "How hot a commodity was I?" Brees said in early August, echoing a question. "I was cold." Purdue wants its first Big Ten title since 1967, and Brees is ready for one last season of outrageous passing statistics.

Orlando, Fla. -- The exact origins are difficult to trace. Maybe it started to catch on at the University of Wyoming in the late 1980s, where former coach Dennis Erickson left his playbook, a hodgepodge of X's and O's in a one-back spread offense scribbled inside. It probably was conceived before that, though, an idea Erickson borrowed from the late Jack Elway, who tried to develop "the perfect offense" while an assistant at Washington State in the early 1970s. One thing is certain. Purdue coach Joe Tiller was part of the evolution - and the success - of the spread offense, a scheme in which four- or five-wide receiver sets are used.

Ardent backyard gardeners can eliminate some of the backbreaking work from their favorite pastime with the help of a mini-tiller.These lightweight machines are easily portable, small enough to work in tight spaces, yet powerful enough to get the job done. With optional attachments, they perform several tasks that make them useful throughout the gardening season.The Mantis tiller, a 20-pound machine usually sold with a free edging attachment, is the most widely known of the mini-tillers. Optional attachments convert the Mantis into a lawn dethatcher, aerator, planter/furrower, crevice cleaner or hedge trimmer.

Wayne Thompson, by all accounts, was a happy man who labored hard for most of his life in a dirty, dangerous job and rarely let it get him down."He would say, 'Life's too short. Enjoy yourself. Don't be upset about silly things,' " recalled Al Tiller, a longtime friend who worked with Mr. Thompson at Bethlehem Steel's Sparrows Point mill, where Mr. Thompson died in a river of molten metal Monday.According to a source on the accident investigation team, Mr. Thompson was an hour into the morning shift, directing the operator of a huge crane carrying a 16-by-20 foot ladle full ofliquid pig iron from one furnace to another when the ladle came loose from its cables, spilling its red-hot load onto the floor below.

Prior to recent events, I intended to write about the GOP's message problem with the headline: "Shoot the Messenger." Sunday's murder of abortion doctor George Tiller makes my title inappropriate, but the idea remains relevant. The adage, of course, is "Don't shoot the messenger," meaning we shouldn't blame the person who delivers bad news. For the GOP these days, however, the problem isn't so much the message. It's the messenger. By grotesque coincidence, Dr. Tiller's murderer furthers the point.

Like hundreds of East Baltimore residents, Sara Tiller has been displaced from her home. Unlike many of her neighbors, however, Tiller has not been uprooted by the large redevelopment north of the Johns Hopkins medical complex. Rather, she was forced to move because the home at 1029 N. Washington St., which has been in her family for six decades, was damaged by a fire in a vacant house next door owned by the Housing Authority of Baltimore City. That was more than six months ago. Since then, Tiller, a 74-year-old retired psychiatric assistant, has lived first in a hotel, and then in one apartment and then another as repairs to her home were delayed by a series of break-ins.

Most of the young people mourning Shawn Tiller's violent death wore matching T-shirts to his funeral. Emblazoned on the front was an image of the 16-year-old, who was shot to death in East Baltimore last fall. Similar shirts were made for the street-corner memorial service for a 13-year-old girl run over by a car in early December, for a 19-year-old shot at Lafayette Avenue and McCulloh Street the same month and for a young boy who committed suicide. Known on the street as Rest In Peace T-shirts, they are usually black or white and display a photo of the victim.
