Former swimming coach Rick Curl turned himself in to Montgomery County police Thursday morning on a charge that he abused one of his students. Curl, 63, of Vienna, Va., founder of the suburban Washington Curl-Burke Swim Club, allegedly began to sexually abuse his victim when she was 13 in the early 1980s, police said. The sexual abuse progressed from inappropriate touching to a sexual relationship while the victim was age 15 to 18. Police said the abuse occurred throughout Montgomery County, including Curl's former residences in Rockville and Darnestown and the swimming facilities at the Georgetown Preparatory School in North Bethesda.

Did you see the medal?That's what John Lurz wanted to know yesterday, asking his swimming buddies at the North Baltimore Aquatic Center: "Did you see the medal?"He was talking about the gold one, the one around Beth Botsford's neck in Atlanta Monday night as she beamed atop the highest platform at the Olympics for all the world to see."I couldn't even believe it was Beth," marveled Lurz. "Fifteen-year-old Beth!"The friends of the 15-year-old Timonium girl -- who won the gold with her best-ever time of 1.01.

Few things in any sport are as irresistible as a clash between the two top-ranked teams. That's what we have in high school football at 2:45 p.m. tomorrow when Calvert Hall, No. 1 in The Baltimore Sun poll, visits No. 2 City College.City is my pick largely because of Terrence Suber, one of the most effective quarterbacks I've seen around here in a while."The only thing that can keep Suber from being a big-time college player is his size," says City assistant coach Warren Schwartz, a one-time Western Maryland quarterback himself as well as a former head coach at Forest Park, Southwestern and Eastern.

It must be spring, 'cause parties are blossoming all over the place. In the case of the Walters Art Museum, we mean that quite literally, as the museum's Women's Committee put together its 14th annual "Art Blooms at the Walters" wingding. Each year, the committee members select a certain exhibition or section of the museum. Members then create magnificent floral interpretations of specific works of art. This year, the committee focused on the Walters' 19th-century collection. "It was stunning, like nothing we've ever done before," says Barbara Simmons, who co-chaired the event with Betsy Bond.

The faces in the old 16 mm film flow across the editing screen like visions in a dream. The black-and-white footage has a soft, almost sepia tone. There is no sound, just scenes from a Pennsylvania Avenue club.For years these movies of Baltimore's Sphinx Club were the stuff of rumor and gossip. People remembered them, but didn't know where to find them. They had disappeared, just like the club that once helped sustain a community.Jeff Smith, an independent filmmaker, had spent six years trying to make a documentary about the club.

Aquietude settles in the vast rooms, over the fruniture with its heft and antique texture; it invests the dark bar and bright reading room alike and even governs the movements of the servants as they glide through. Motes drift in the sun by a window. Time is kept outside, at bay.There are only men here. The sense of caste is thick among them. It is a lair of men, and those excluded from this company often believe the strangest things about it. That its members have limitless influence and wealth.
