Matt Collins was perspiring heavily. The 19-year-old Friends alumnus said he doesn't usually get nervous playing polo, but, on the first day of a February training session in West Palm Beach, Fla., the thought of riding in front of the country's best players was intimidating. "Owen Rinehart and Nick Snow, they were all just sort of watching us, just criticizing everything we're doing. I was like sweating and shaking. Once I got out there, it was fun, though. " That was Collins' first experience as a member of the United States Polo Association's development team.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Los Angeles Dodger left-handed reliever Steve Wilson was released yesterday after clearing waivers.Wilson, 29, never equaled the success he had in helping the Dodgers down the stretch in 1991.

A Harford County Council bill designed to block the proposed move of Walmart's Abingdon store about two miles to the north to a plot near the intersection of Route 924 and Plumtree Road came to strange end last week. The bill, which initially seemed to have strong support as it was co-sponsored by four of the seven members of the county council, came up for action last week in a legislative session and died a procedural death. A motion for action on the legislation was made, even as dozens of people in favor of it were in attendance to monitor what promised to be tumultuous legislative session.

Everybody knows South Florida is a great spot to golf, fish and lie on the beach, but I bet you didn't know that West Palm Beach is the place to go if you are wicked around a wicket. The 10-acre National Croquet Center is the largest croquet complex on the planet, with big-time tournaments, coaching clinics and the world's largest walk-in croquet pro shop. I'm providing that last little bit of information as a public service because - like me - you probably had no idea where to go for the latest croquet attire.

Debbie Paladino, an IBM manager who had been a standout athlete while a Centennial High School student, died of pancreatic cancer Sunday at a West Palm Beach, Fla. hospital. The former Ellicott City resident was 44. Born in Cincinnati and raised in Chicago, she moved with her parents to Maryland in 1978. "Fate sent Debbie Paladino to Centennial High School because an athlete of her ilk comes along every 100 years," said a 1981 Evening Sun article that named her the paper's Female Prep Athlete of the Year.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The neon "OPEN" sign peeking out of a boarded-up strip mall at 7 a.m. yesterday was not a mistake. Sheriff's deputies who came by to check on the restaurant pub figured it might be the only business still open in the entire county. "We're going to ride out the storm here," said Becky Young, owner of the Player's Choice Pub & Grill. "We told our customers and friends, if you need a place to go, we'll be here." Young, 39, set up a futon mattress with sheets and pillows in the corner of the pub in case she needs a nap over the next day or two as Hurricane Frances hovers over the coast, lashing the area with high winds and driving rain.

MALABAR, Fla. - Hurricane Jeanne blazed a deadly and destructive path across the heart of Florida yesterday, driving waves of residents to inland shelters and ripping into dazed and weary communities that had scarcely recovered from three previous blows inflicted during this extraordinary tropical storm season. After making landfall near Port St. Lucie, in nearly the exact spot where Hurricane Frances tore into the eastern coastline three weeks ago, Jeanne took a slow and powerful crescent-shaped churn across the center of the state, scattering debris with 120-mph winds, flooding coastal areas from Daytona Beach to West Palm Beach, and cutting electricity to more than 1.5 million people.

It's a simple mistake made over and over again when reporters descend on Palm Beach County. Palm Beach. West Palm Beach. Same thing, right? Not since the 1991 rape trial of William Kennedy Smith have so many reporters confused West Palm Beach with Palm Beach. Both are in Palm Beach County. But it's like confusing Beverly Hills with Arbutus. West Palm Beach is not, in the words of out-of-town reporters, "a sleepy resort town." West Palm Beach is not "where all the rich people live."
