NEW YORK -- Yefin Krel of Brooklyn finds himself charged with crashing into one Joan Margarella's car, causing injuries to her daughter, Tara, 13, then fleeing the scene -- all because Krel is bald.When the brown Chevrolet that struck her car took off, Margarella could see only the tag number and the back of the assailant's head. But she told police she would know that bald spot anywhere. So Saverio De Felice traced the car and arranged -- for the first time in his 18 years as a Brooklyn detective -- a lineup of suspects facing backward.

Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera found herself in an interesting position last week as she testified before lawmakers about how Maryland's courts will meet a constitutional mandate that defendants get a lawyer when their bail is first set. As a member of the state's highest court, Barbera wrote a forceful dissent to a decision that could dramatically change the way the state treats defendants before trial. But as the state's top judge, Barbera also faces the administrative task of carrying out that ruling.

“We're not going to play any Lou Reed tonight out of respect to the man,” said Kurt Vile on the evening of the legendary rocker's death. “Wouldn't want to sully his life work.”  Though Vile was being facetious, the Philly rocker's Sunday night set at the Ottobar channeled the late Reed in more ways than he'd care to admit, offering a diverse, if not strange concert on the whole. VBA was the first band to take the stage. The three piece, which features Vile's singer/drummer Vince Nudo, plays a scrappy breed of garage rock - heavily distorted guitar, howling vocals, the whole nine yards.

At the age of 60 I made what I feel was my most embarrassing fashion faux pas. The members of our local bridge club decided to dress up and wear hats for a club outing at a fine restaurant.Hats have never suited me, so I went into the local department store and bought the first festive one I saw -- a bright red straw covered with matching flowers. At the luncheon I stood by as my friends exchanged compliments with each other, but they just glanced at me and said nothing.While we were waiting to be seated, I took a good look at myself in the mirror and realized I looked ridiculous.

In the stark jewelry she has designed since the 1940s, and in her own wardrobe, Betty Cooke has always searched for the defining line, curve or dash of color. It is her knack for pairing natural forms with silver and gold that has made Cooke one of the first 16 recipients of the American Craft Council Awards. Last October in Seattle, she was inducted into the Council's College of Fellows. Cooke, the co-owner of The Store LTD at Cross Keys, is also a regular customer at the ACC's annual Baltimore show, (which opens tomorrow at the Convention Center)

I AM NOT A HAT PERSON, and there are apparently a lot of us. Women who swear they look like a street lamp in a hat, though they have never tried one on. Women who wear hats by carrying them at their sides, too self-conscious to put one on their heads. Women who see pictures of other women, confidently wearing fedoras with black, grosgrain hatbands, and wish they had that hat, or that confidence. Easter is the National Day of Hats, and a particularly tough day for us not-hat persons.

How would you describe your taste in clothing?It's eclectic and runs the gamut. What I wear daily depends on my mood and what office functions I have. Big consideration is whether it will carry me through the evening.I can be so very conservative and traditional, but every season I do try to add one trendy item. I like clothes, but paramount to me is comfort. I like to wear the clothes, not for the clothes to wear me.What's the newest thing in your closet?It's two Gordon Henderson dresses.

He's quite a picture in pinstripes and a straw-brimmed hat, handkerchief at the breast pocket, shoes buffed to a luster -- a gentleman, the sort you'd think is always addressed as "sir." But for the most part, people just call him "Mad Dog." "It's from my days working narcotics," says Albert Marcus, a 26-year veteran of the Baltimore police force. "People would see me chasing after someone and say, 'He's tough, he's a mad dog.' " Marcus, 51, has spent the last eight years as a homicide detective, but the nickname has stuck through the shifts in responsibility, just like his other rep: Marcus is known as one dapper detective.

Q: Last summer for the first time, I started playing tennis with some of my business associates. The first time, I appeared with a blazer over my tennis clothes and felt remarkably out of place. The rest of the summer, I wore spring sweaters, which were more appropriate but still wrong and uncomfortable in the sweltering heat. By the end, I realized a windbreaker was the answer. I recently set out in advance of the tennis season to purchase my first windbreaker since childhood. I found designer windbreakers in the hundreds of dollars range, so I headed for a discount store where I found one for $20. When I tried it on at home, the zipper broke immediately.

Capper to poor decision Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel Isn't the Arkansas radio reporter who got fired for wearing a University of Florida cap into Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's news conference actually better off? Now when somebody asks her where she works, she doesn't have to turn red and answer sheepishly, "Hog Sports Radio. " But I digress. How far should partisan broadcasters go to support their team? Well, if you are directly paid by the team (like college and NFL play-by-play broadcasters)

The Red Hatter tea party in Annapolis resembled an Alice in Wonderland tale with a baby boomer twist. Over buttered cucumber sandwiches, a gathering of ladies in red hats and purple clothes agreed their monthly meetings are excellent for camaraderie and, as one put it, cheaper than a psychiatrist. Gales of laughter ensued as scones were passed and tea was poured at their June get-together, held last week at Tara's Gifts & Parties on Annapolis Street. Welcome to the 11-woman local chapter of the Red Hat Society, a national organization that has spread in the past few years.

I AM hereby announcing, here at the top of today's column -- and without the expressed written approval of my bosses -- the First Maybe Annual Baltimore Sun Ugly Tie Contest, to be held May 15 during the Definitely Annual Again Baltimore Flower Mart. This is a revival of a contest that used to be held in The Evening Sun newsroom back when there was an Evening Sun and the closets of editors and reporters still glowed with large, ugly, polyester, what-were-we-thinking? neckties from the '70s.

Barbara Johnson's sense of style is reason enough for her colleagues to come to work at Towson State's Office of Admissions where she is an administrative assistant. The grandmother of two known as "BJ" has the knack. Johnson's uncanny flair for putting clothes together has earned kudos all around from her office mates. Ask for a summary of her approach to fashion, and Johnson says, rather enigmatically, it's "very unusual."Explain "unusual."I might put two different types of prints together.

EVERY POLITICIAN ought to know the most important things for good government: disclosure, disclosure and disclosure. Sounds simple enough, but Maryland has had too many politicians who just don't get it. Del. Joseph F. Vallario Jr. of Prince George's County chairs a committee that determines the fate of drunk-driving bills, but he also runs a high-volume law practice specializing in getting drunk drivers off the hook. Shouldn't people be alerted to this fact before Mr. Vallario acts? In Anne Arundel, Councilman Daniel E. Klosterman Jr. two years ago played advocate for one of his accounting clients over the firm's contract with the county jail.
