It's Vegas, baby! Our ragtag foursome arrives at the 1983 COMDEX in Sin City to sell their Giant, only to find that their reserved hotel suite, where much of their wheeling and dealing was to go down, has been given away. The pending criminal investigation into Cardiff has frozen the company's accounts, leaving Joe, Cameron, Donna and Gordon scrambling to find a solution. They could do what I once did and sleep in a hotel lobby there, but that wouldn't lend itself to throwing a lavish party for potential clients.

COLLEGE PARK -- To find a way to end the impressive streak the Sherwood softball team has enjoyed - two straight perfect seasons and a game away from another - Chesapeake-AA knew its margin of error would have to be close to none in Saturday's Class 4A state championship game. It's an awful lot to ask when going up against a hard-hitting team that has quality pitching, sound defense and the confidence of winning 61 straight games. Simply put, it was too much to ask of the No. 4 Cougars.

Zarb as much as $20 million if management's revival plan fails to win shareholder approval.Earlier this month A&A unveiled a plan that called for it to sell $200 million worth of preferred stock -- equivalent to a 21 percent stake in the company -- to American International Group Inc. of New York and also said it would slash its dividend by 90 percent. At that time it announced it had hired Mr. Zarb as its new chief.

After thousands of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, Allan Compton of Taylorsville found a self-help group that made more sense to him."I'd been trying for years, and I could not relate to AA because of the emphasis on God," said Compton, 39.What Compton, who believes in God, likes about Rational Recovery is the emphasis on people -- rather than a higher power -- having control over whether they abuse alcohol or drugs.Rational Recovery will begin meetings in Carroll County next Wednesday at the North Carroll Library in Greenmount.

The basketball team that can dictate the tempo usually wins. Such was the case at Westminster last night, as the No. 20-ranked Owls (16-6) dictated the fast tempo they wanted and defeated Chesapeake-AA in a Class 4A East Region girls quarterfinal, 58-45. The Owls will play Arundel tomorrow night in the semifinals. Sophomore point guard Kerry Higgs used her superior quickness to keep the Cougars (11-9) on the run in the first period, and freshman center Emily Bollinger scored eight of her 10 points also in the first quarter as the Owls built a 13-7 lead.

On Friday evenings when many people leave their offices and head for happy hour, six women gather to encourage and support one another -- and to abstain, not drink.As the meeting begins, a matronly woman with salt-and-pepper hair says, "Hello, I'm Margaret, and I'm a competent woman. Today, I didn't allow things I can't control to upset me."As the introductions go around the table, each woman makes a positive statement about herself. Some speak clearly, with confidence, others with shyness.

Spinnenweber helped his own cause with a double to start off the third. It was the only inning the Cougars scored in, and the only extra base hit in the game.

Colleen Regan pitched a complete-game shutout and Faith Kujawa delivered at the plate as No. 11 Glenelg got over its early-round postseason jitters to defeat Atholton, 4-0, in a Class 3A East region second-round softball game Monday. The Gladiators put together one of their better all-around performances of the season. "The biggest thing we talked to the girls about was that last year felt great at 20-0 [in the regular season] and no one can take that undefeated season away from them, but that one loss came at the wrong time," said Glenelg coach Ray Gerstner, whose top-seeded teams had lost in the second round of the playoffs the past two seasons.

The Northeast softball team made a smart adjustment at the plate on Wednesday to produce a four-run fourth inning against Anne Arundel rival Chesapeake. It was more than enough support for All-Metro pitcher Brooke Steinbach, who didn't need to change anything she was doing on the mound. Staying ahead of batters and mostly relying on screwballs, fastballs and fine defense behind her, Steinbach allowed only two hits and struck out eight as the No. 2 Eagles came away with a 4-0 win over the No. 3 Cougars.

Arundel outfielder Syeed Mahdi was very frustrated with his last at bat for in the bottom of the sixth for Arundel. As it turned out, his pop-up was just the trick. Mahdi's seeing-eye single found a hole between three Chesapeake (10-1, 9-1) players, allowing two runs to score, and giving the No. 4 Wildcats a 5-4 victory over the No. 5 Cougars in a key Anne Arundel County League game. Mahdi led Arundel (10-0, 9-0) with a triple and two singles. Michael Hinely pitched the final two innings to get the win. "It landed, and that's all that matters," said Mahdi, a senior.

His sophomore year, he got a little injured and came back too early and wound up missing the rest of that year.
