We who are sports fans frankly are lucky. Our world is entirely about fun and games, so much so that in the newspaper business, the sports section is not so affectionately referred to as the toy department, because what we deal with is piffle. Every so often, though, the real world intrudes upon play and forces us to examine what we hold dear and why and whether, in the pursuit of wins and losses, we are doing the right thing for ourselves and, most importantly, for our children. Such an instance has presented itself in Montgomery County, where a talented football player is being allowed to suit up and play this year despite facing two felony charges, including one that he allegedly drove the getaway car in a March 30 robbery.

If you enter the hospital with pneumonia today, there's a good chance you'll be treated by a new kind of specialist - a hospitalist - instead of your family doctor. More than half of all large U.S. medical centers now use hospitalists, and new programs are springing up across the country. Fifteen years ago, the situation was far different: primary care doctors were in charge of treating many hospital patients. "It's a sea change in the nature of health care," says Dr. Bob Wachter, a hospitalist and researcher at the University of California at San Francisco.

WHEATON - At 13, Simon Cho is too young for a soul patch and too green to be thinking about the Winter Olympics just a year away. But this weekend on a rink in Milwaukee, the wiry speed skater with muscles of steel and a will to match will see how he stacks up against the best in his age group at the U.S. National Short Track Championships. From that field will come the Olympians of 2010 and, perhaps, the next Apolo Anton Ohno, the gold and silver medalist from 2002 who made a hairy lower lip as much a part of his uniform as a helmet.

WHEATON - The serpentine path beckons visitors to stroll up the slight incline, toward a pond where turtles sunbathe on the islands, an area so serene that the turtles' slide into the water and birds' chirps break the near-silence. But first, approaching the pond's edge, the path opens into an irregularly shaped terrace of gray stones. More than 150 people are expected here today, as Montgomery County unveils a Reflection Terrace, a memorial in Wheaton Regional Park's Brookside Gardens to the sniper victims and other victims of violence.

A vicious, apparently racially motivated attack on two black women in Montgomery County last week focused new attention on the state's little-used hate-crimes law.Two white men have been charged under the hate-crimes statute in a Wheaton incident in which one of the men allegedly beat a 39-year-old black woman, stripped her half-naked, doused her with charcoal lighter fluid and tried to set her ablaze.Police allege that the men, John R. Ayers Jr., 21, of Rockville and Sean T. Riley, 19, of the Wheaton area had been drinking and were cruising Georgia Avenue early Tuesday morning, "hunting" for black victims, purportedly in retaliation for having been called a racially derogatory name by three black men the previous Friday.
