Big Sydney - Golf pushed back another week These lousy kids. Last year they cooperated. Only one team even made it to the playoffs last year, and they did me a favor by losing in the first round. That gave me a chance to join the Washington professional sports teams in their favorite pastime ... early tee times! And take a look this year. They're all on their way to the same fate this season. Redskins: They stink, even though they've won four in a row. Capitals: They stink, even though they paid a lot of money for Mick Jagr.

BATON ROUGE, La. - Country food restaurants in small towns can be evaluated by the number of cars or trucks parked in front at lunch time. If there are fewer than four or five cars in the parking lot, drive on.

It's that time of year again. This is the time when the wheels fall off even the best fitness plans. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, many exercising Americans get caught up in shopping, company banquets, holiday parties and dinners. They end up deconditioned, a few pounds heavier and mad that they did this to themselves again. And it all begins Thursday. Nothing tests your willpower like a fresh slice of that good pumpkin pie, a mound of fresh mashed potatoes and gravy, some of that good cranberry sauce, or some of grandma's turkey stuffing.

HAGERSTOWN - Buckshot, Katie and Obu-Jet are rolling in the money. When Ken Kemper, the former owner of the dogs, died of cancer last year, the well-heeled hounds inherited a house in Hagerstown and $400,000 from his estate. All together, the tail-wagging trio is worth about $800,000. The dogs live at their house on Marion Street with caretaker Roy Grady. "They get the best care," Grady said. "They don't know they have more money than most people. " When Katie sneaked out the gate last summer and was struck by a car, she received the best medical attention available, including 40 visits to the veterinarian's office to mend her broken legs and hip, Grady said.
