It's the 100-meter dash on skates, a wild sprint to determine the fastest man on ice. The 500 meters is the race in which speedskater Dan Jansen took his memorable Olympic slips and spills, where Canadian Jeremy Wotherspoon wiped out 4 years ago after just four strides. His tumble cleared the way for American Casey FitzRandolph to capture the gold medal in an Olympic record time: 1 minute, 9.23 seconds. FitzRandolph is back to defend his title against a field that includes fellow American (and fellow 2002 medalist)

Bill "Peanut" Gaines vs. Eddie Johns. Twenty years ago this spring, that rivalry created intense interest among South Jersey track fans, and once attracted a crowd of nearly 4,000 onlookers at Deptford High for the Gloucester County Championships. Gaines, a speedster from Clearview Regional High, and Johns, the former Kingsway High sprinter, met head-to-head just three times during their scholastic careers. The two close friends, whose schools were less than five miles apart, were occasionally the subject of debate as to which was the faster of the two, although by the end of 1967, Gaines had clearly settled that question.

It was a dash to the finish. The deal to combine Washington's Dickstein Shapiro with Center City-based Blank Rome was hatched on Christmas Eve and became a 45-day sprint as partners at both firms raced to close the transaction. Talks began at a lunch on Dec. 24 between Blank Rome chief operating officer Patrick Cavanaugh and Dickstein chairman James Kelly. Cavanaugh had reached out to Kelly after word began circulating that Dickstein's planned merger with St. Louis-based Bryan Cave had foundered over terms of the transaction.

When my husband and I got married, among the wedding gifts we received from a family friend were signed editions of every cookbook issued by celebrated chef Yotam Ottolenghi. Our friend lives in London, and she was excited to share Ottolenghi's delicious recipes with us because she had enjoyed his cooking with her husband. In our nearly two years of marriage, I have loved sifting through the gorgeous pictures in Ottolenghi's cookbooks, planning elaborate meals that seem always to call for a sprinkling of lovely pomegranate seeds atop some masterpiece of eggplant, lamb, or fennel.

Question: Please write something concerning the replacement of lights in the dash of a 2008 Mercury Sable. The light indicating the mileage has burned out in my car, and the repair cost is $800. This is a very fine auto, but that price is outrageous. Answer: I agree $800 to repair an odometer display is a tough pill to swallow. At least you're not talking about a Mercedes, for which a similar repair could hit $3,000. The most cost-effective way to fix this would entail removing the instrument-panel cluster - or having someone do this for you - and sending it in for repairs to a place that fixes them.

Three-way luxury battle: 2015 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Performance Collection vs. Lexus IS350 F-Sport AWD vs. 2015 Infiniti Q50S 3.7 AWD This week: Lexus IS350 Price: $50,525 as tested. The IS350 AWD starts at $42,300; the F-Sport package adds $3,450. (Other options explained below.) An IS250 with a 2.5-liter four starts at $36,550. Marketer's pitch: "Some follow. Others change lanes. It's your move. " Conventional wisdom: Edmunds.com liked the "powerful and refined V6; attractive interior with top-quality materials; comfortable seats; precise steering" but not that it is "less capable than rivals in spirited driving" or that its "navigation system's mouselike remote-touch interface is distracting to use. " Reality: I never thought Lexus had it in them.

Tom Corbett is about to make history. On Tuesday, the Republican will either be the first Pennsylvania governor to lose a reelection try since the 19th century, or he will overcome a double-digit polling deficit with an unprecedented late surge. Corbett and Democrat Tom Wolf have entered the mobilization stage of the campaign, traveling the state to push their partisans to turn out, a harder task in a midterm race than in a presidential year. Both are bringing high-powered motivational help to the region Sunday evening.
