If the world of Chinese restaurants can be divided between those with chopsticks on the tables and those with silverware, Wing Wah Restaurant in Pikesville is a knife-and-fork kind of place. Tucked among storefronts on the 500 block of Reisterstown Road, Wing Wah serves generous portions of moderately priced, mildly flavored Chinese fare. It has a neighborhood feel to it, starting with the signs on the entry doors that warn you not to park in the nearby Jiffy Lube lot, lest you be towed.

It was something a young tournament golfer may never forget.Carroll County's Michael Wah, 22, had a horrendous start on his attempt to qualify for the Maryland State Amateur Championship at Norbeck Country Club.He possibly could have lived with a bogey, or even a double bogey, but with a triple, all his nerve and composure were called upon to move on to the second hole.The humbling start caused Wah to miss the qualifying cut by a stroke. Last year, the Union Bridge resident had made it through qualifying for the National Amateur in Ohio.

After the kazoo wah wah wahs the national anthem, all the vehicles' brakes are tested, and contestants get their feet blessed by a monk, a man in a top hat wearing overalls and a cape will make a speech and sound a bullhorn signaling the start of the American Visionary Art Museum's seventh annual Kinetic Sculpture Race on Saturday. This is not your typical 15-mile dash. At least 20 human-propelled creations will creep at about 4 mph through water, sand and mud to vie for the top prize - which, as it turns out, is for the finisher not at the top, but smack-dab in the middle - in this event billed as a collision of art and engineering.

Steadily, stealthily, The Eye works its way into your psyche, playing with your mind and always keeping a surprise or two up its sleeve. It's a supernatural shocker that owes its chills to the tried-and-true notion that what goes around, comes around. Twenty-year-old Mun (Lee Sin-Je) has been blind since age 2 but is about to undergo a corneal transplant that promises to restore her vision. It works and her eyes begin to function. But she can't really see yet; her brain can't process the pictures it suddenly is receiving.

Picture this: Billy Crystal as the leprechaunish Cyclops, Mike, in Monsters, Inc. pitches the woo to a taller, serpentine Cyclops named Celia (Jennifer Tilly), who boasts a Medusa's head of snake-hair. Suddenly he notices a pile of stone statues. As the snakes on Celia's head snap, he asks her what the statues are. Without missing a beat or thinking it will make him nervous, Celia answers, "My old boyfriends." It's a hilarious throwaway. But you'll have to picture it in your imagination, because you'll never see it on the screen.

There had to be pressure on Carroll County's 21-year-old Michael Wah when he stepped on the tee for his bid in the U.S. Amateur Golf Championship last week in Columbus, Ohio.It was a case of an almost totally inexperienced golfer matching shots with the nation's most proficient amateurs. It is conceded that many in the field would be golf's dominators of tomorrow. He knew he was bucking overwhelming odds. Only the top 64 players from an original field of thousands would make it into match play competition.

THIS UNHAPPY but nonetheless amusing business of Jeffrey Levitt's 87-year-old mother suing her son, the paroled savings and loan swindler, made me wonder: Could it happen to me? To any of us? Imagine, a mother turning on her son like that. But you never know these days. You've heard that expression, "Everyone and his brother is suing someone." It could just as likely be, "Everyone and his mother." And, as newspaper editors used to tell their cubs: "If your mother says she loves you, check it out."
