LEE DOVE, Archbishop Spalding High School director of athletics, has won the 1999 National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association's State Award of Merit.

The award is presented annually to one NIAAA member in each state in recognition of service, leadership and outstanding contributions to interscholastic athletics.

He will receive the award in April at the NIAAA Convention in Ocean City.

During his 13 years at Spalding, Dove has added tennis, golf, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track to the sports program. The school has 35 teams in 21 sports.

Thrift stores

When you shop at one of Central County's nonprofit thrift shops, you do a good deed.

To improve service, the Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake's center in Millersville has been enlarged. Now, there is space for the "name brand merchandise at unbelievable prices" that Goodwill advertises.

The store, in the Northway Shopping Center, 674 Old Mill Road, has expanded its hours to 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The donation center next door is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
