"The Odyssey" is one of the largest epic poems ever written, and Derek Walcott's West Indian-flavored stage version -- making its American premiere at Washington's Arena Stage -- is an appropriately large-scale theatrical event.A cast of 20 plays more than 40 characters and wears 150 costumes. The language in Walcott's three-hour verse marathon ranges from lyrical to irreverent, and there's an original island-inspired score composed by "Hair's" Galt MacDermot.Although Walcott, winner of the 1992 Nobel Prize, adheres to Homer's basic plot, he also makes numerous creative departures.

Within 12 hours of the time her son was critically injured in Iraq, the Red Cross had helped fly Ruth Vogel to his bedside at an Army hospital in Germany. As a devastating tropical storm approached Maryland last fall, Red Cross volunteer Cyndi Walcott prepared a shelter in eastern Baltimore County where she eventually cared for 400 victims of Isabel. The women, both Westminster residents, will be among six people relating their stories and paying tribute today as the international aid organization celebrates its first Testimonial Day and National Red Cross Month at the Red Cross headquarters on Mount Hope Drive in Northwest Baltimore.

Not again.That's what everyone was thinking when River Hill and visiting Urbana got ready to play yesterday afternoon and no referees were in sight."It reminded us a lot of last year," said River Hill senior Krista Killian. "Everyone kept saying it was deja vu."A year ago at Urbana, referees failed to show for the night game and Urbana beat River Hill in overtime in a game officiated by parents.Yesterday, things were different. The referees did show up, and so did River Hill.First-half goals by sophomore Rashida Walcott and two more by Killian powered the seventh-ranked Hawks to a 4-0 victory.

It's not often one of the area's best soccer teams suffers from a lack of confidence, but River Hill coach Joan Kelso Smedley believes that's been the case with her Hawks the past five days. On Thursday, the Hawks lost for the first time in nearly two years when Urbana upset them, 2-1, to end their 29-game winning streak. Then on Saturday, River Hill learned that Fana Walcott, a first-team All-County sweeper last season, was leaving the team because she and her mother are moving to Georgia.

Aisha Walcott has seen a lot in her four years on Atholton's girls varsity basketball team. Players have quit. A coach has resigned.And, of course, there are the losses.The Raiders are 9-10 overall and 4-9 in the league. Those are the most wins in a season -- overall and league -- that Atholton has had in Walcott's four years."To finish .500 would be great," said Walcott, whose Raiders play host to Centennial in the regular-season finale Tuesday.Amid the losses, Walcott has gone from a struggling freshman to Atholton's seventh all-time scorer and eighth all-time rebounder.

Nothing comes close to the "beautiful game" -- soccer played outdoors on a patch of grass measuring 120 yards by 75 yards -- for sheer artistry and enjoyment. But when temperatures drop, the elements grow foul and the game must move indoors, the Thunder Soccer Club has a message for its constituents: No walls! The western Howard County youth club has embraced futsal, the international version of indoor soccer, which -- though little known even to many soccer enthusiasts in this country -- has state, regional and national championships in the United States, as well as its own World Cup. It's a game that contrasts sharply with the style of indoor soccer played by the Baltimore Blast and in other cities of the Major Indoor Soccer League on hockey rinks surfaced with synthetic turf.

Top-ranked River Hill entered last night's home game against fourth-ranked Mount Hebron having won its first 16 Howard County girls basketball league games by an average of 28 points. Subtract 26, and you'll have last night's margin. The Hawks didn't score a basket in the final five minutes and almost blew a 10-point lead but held on for a 53-51 victory that clinched their second straight county championship. "We won. That's all I can say," said River Hill coach Teresa Waters. "You can't win every game by a margin of 20 or 30 points.

This could happen at a River Hill girls soccer game: A Walcott could pass to a Cronin, who could pass to a Goertler, who could pass to a Walcott, who could pass to a Cronin, who could pass to a Goertler. And no one player would touch the ball twice. How? Three sets of sisters. Say hello to Kelsey and Lynlea Cronin, Rashida and Fana Walcott, and Jamie and Samantha Goertler - the No. 1 Hawks' sister act. And what a show it is, especially if you like laughter. "We joke around all the time," said Rashida, a senior forward who leads the Hawks in scoring with 11 goals.

There is no one explanation as to why River Hill's girls basketball is undefeated -- why a team that lost 11 of 23 games last season has now won 22 straight and is ranked No. 1. But a good place to start is second-year coach Teresa Waters, who led Oakland Mills to the state Class 1A title in 1997-98, then left after 16 seasons to coach at the school where she taught. Waters came to a team with talent and problems that didn't easily go away. "We had a lot of team meetings," said junior guard Fana Walcott.

WHEN IT came to getting Mauritanian immigrant Moctar Teyeb's name, I nailed it right on the button, spelling and all. Ditto for local activists Anditu Siwatu and Nnamdi Lumumba of the National Democratic Uhuru Movement.But when it comes to an easy and simple name like Walter Holtz, what do I do? I blow it completely. Well, I blew half of it anyway. In Sunday's column Walter Holtz, a 14-year veteran of the Baltimore City Police Department who retired in 1971, came out as Ken Holtz. How did this happen?

Senior midfielder Krista Killian's stunning line drive into the goal's top-left corner from about 25 yards gave No. 12-ranked River Hill a 3-2, double-overtime win at home against neighboring Centennial yesterday.Killian's perfectly struck, right-foot goal above and beyond flying Eagles goalkeeper Erica Neiman about five minutes from the game's end was startling, because it came against the grain with Eagles defenders reacting to a deep pass back off Hawks sophomore Shannon Jackson."I just saw the ball coming back to me, and I wanted to shoot," said a thrilled Killian.
