Bonnye Lang, who during the past 19 years has officiated hundreds of girls' and women's lacrosse games, is bothered by what she calls increasingly poor behavior of spectators, especially at youth-level games. About five years ago, Lang did something about it, coming up with the idea of handing particularly offensive spectators what's called a purple card - a warning that they're out of line. It's an idea with backers in women's lacrosse, but it also is creating controversy as the concept becomes better known.

No secret enigma, just AT&T office at Finksburg site The Sun's article ("Cracking a Carroll enigma," June 14) on the Finksburg AT&T facility was absolutely absurd. My former wife, Sandi, worked for AT&T at the Finksburg facility from 1990 to 1999. I have visited it and walked down the 56 steps to the AT&T long-distance switch many times. My children have been there many times. All telephone facilities, for obvious reasons, must have good security. This facility also has good security, so we could visit only because Sandi was an AT&T technician.

When Naval Academy senior Elise Chapdelaine heard last summer that Cindy Timchal was about to take over the Midshipmen women's lacrosse program as it moves from club to Division I status next year, she didn't know who Timchal was. The former Maryland coach was not surprised that a college club player had never heard of her. She was, however, surprised to learn from a club coach in Texas that the players there had never heard of Maryland's 10-time national-championship...

While I was speaking to a group of high school journalists last year, an eager hand shot up from the back of the room.L "Can you get rich doing journalism?" the young man wondered."Only in friendships," I said, leaving the group somewhat bewildered.I hopped on a desk and explained. You can make a good living in the newspaper business, I said, but the most valuable assets you'll take with you at the end of your career can't be entered in a bank book.I measure my fortune in the friends I've made in 24 years of working for newspapers large and small.

This weekend's Division I women's lacrosse tournament in Towson features a lot of familiar faces. That's the way it usually is at the women's lacrosse final four. Three of last year's semifinalists return: five-time defending champion Northwestern, Maryland and North Carolina. The "newcomer" is Syracuse, but the Orange isn't all that new. It was a semifinalist once before, in 2008. In a sport that is growing rapidly at the college level — nearly tripling the number of Division I programs in 20 years — and is getting more competitive all the time, that parity has not shown up at the top very quickly.

As the members of the Virginia women's lacrosse team made their way from University Hall to Klockner Stadium Sunday morning, their mood seemed light and, as is often the case with a bunch of college girls, chatty. The only reminders of the tragedy that transpired here nearly two weeks ago were the cameras from ESPN that trailed them, and the dark blue T-shirts the players unveiled after taking the field for warm-ups in their opening round game in the NCAA women's lacrosse championships against Towson.
