I charter a plane, visit every heart specialist in the land, then decide whether to resume my basketball career.But Reggie Lewis isn't going to do that.No, Reggie Lewis got the diagnosis he wanted -- the one that will enable him to continue playing in the NBA.

The Greater Baltimore Medical Center's nature trail, which took a beating last year from Tropical Storm Isabel, has been renovated. The hospital will hold a dedication ceremony at 3 p.m. today to mark the opening of the improved, mile-long trail on GBMC's campus. The renovation culminates more than a year's planning and construction, which restored the trail after its destruction by Isabel last year. Doug Smith, president of the GBMC Foundation, received a call last year from Cindy Crawley, president of the GBMC Women's Hospital Board, about repairing the trail, which Crawley and her husband, William, a GBMC plastic surgeon, enjoyed with their dogs.
