Hannah Swett received the "death penalty" during the second race of the Santa Maria Cup championship yesterday -- and not even a reprieve by the regatta judges and endorsed by her opponent could keep her from being eliminated.At the top of the third -- and what should have been the final -- windward leg, Swett and Julia Trotman came to the mark almost dead even, with Swett trying to maintain inside position and force Trotman wide around the mark.The on-the-water judges ruled that Swett had not allowed Trotman clearance and assessed a penalty, which would require Swett to make a 270-degree turn at some point on the final run to the finish line of the windward-leeward course at the Inner Harbor.

Thirty-four years just wasn't enough time for her to "guide students on the right path toward success," says Lillian P. Trotman.That's why she may be retiring this month as media specialist at Brooklyn Park Elementary School, but she will be back next fall to volunteer part time in the Reading Enrichment League -- a program she designed with parent volunteer Vera McCullough to work one-on-one with at-risk students.The reading program involves volunteers working as mentors with children who have problems doing well in school to get them involved in reading and interested in learning.
