HALFWAY - Compared to most collectors, Alan Comins got a head start pursuing his hobby. He became interested in toy helicopters at the age of 10 - the time most boys' notions of collecting went no further than baseball cards. "I'm not sure what the initial fascination was," the Boonsboro resident said. "I guess I just thought they were kind of neat. " Thirty years later, Comins has a small room in his house filled with helicopters of all sizes. "I've lost count as to how many I actually have," he said.

Perhaps, the world would be a better place if we all listened to our mothers. Our homes would be immaculate. Our postures would be perfect. We would be with Mr. or Mrs. Right. We would not be spending our allowance money on candy and baseball cards (or more recently, shoes and video games) and will have, instead, saved enough to buy that dream home. Wouldn't everything be lovely? Instead of vowing to fulfill the same old New Year's resolutions - to stop smoking, eat better and exercise more - why not revisit that other list of things you've been meaning to do but haven't: those things your mother has been harping about for years?

Sosa's bat was a big deal To the editor: You should have pulled Donald Kaul's column of June 23. I usually read his work, but now fear that I have lost all confidence in his ethical judgment. 1. Sammy Sosa's illegal bat is a very "big deal" for both the game and Sosa. Sosa has batting records that might some day be historical records in the Hall of Fame.

Major League Baseball trades, NBA deals, NFL camps, preseason college football polls, upcoming court cases ... there's nothing to do but look ahead. Projection, anticipation, projection, anticipation. So let's slow things down for a minute of reflection on some recent events. Ed-die! Ed-die! Ed-die!
