The city Board of Estimates postponed voting on a plan to acquire a building near Maryland General Hospital yesterday after owners of a deli there said their business would be ruined. The board was considering a measure to give the mayor and City Council authority to acquire property at 890 Linden Ave. so that Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard could be widened. Owners of Linden Deli, Yong An and his brother-in-law, Yong Kim, paid about $480,000 for the building and the business 11 years ago, their attorney, John C. Murphy, told the board.

Walter Evan Black Jr., a retired chief judge of the U.S. District Court for Maryland who ruled against the city of Baltimore in its efforts to acquire the Colts after the team moved to Indianapolis, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Monday at his Easton home. The former Roland Park-area resident was 88. During a lengthy career, he ruled against Baltimore in 1985 when it attempted to acquire the Colts football franchise by condemnation. In his ruling, he said the city did not have the power to take the franchise because the team had moved on the night of March 29, 1984, before the day the city had filed its suit.

History tells us the first documented version of lacrosse was played by native tribes inhabiting North America in the 1630s. Legend says the rules of the ancient sport were devised to help sharpen the focus, dexterity and courage of young warriors. Needless to say, much has changed over the past four centuries with a sport whose popularity seems to grow each year, especially in the wealthier suburbs where kids play it and parents watch it. But it was certainly intuition and opportunity that led the Mohegan Sun's Tribal Gaming Authority to pursue the sport's indoor professional league as a tenant for its arena, home of concerts and basketball games.

Miller, a free agent at the end of this season, is expected to be in uniform Friday and available to pitch out of the bullpen against the Seattle Mariners.

Some pitchers struggle in their first appearance against their former team. But not Orioles right-hander Preston Guilmet. Forgotten in the Orioles' 13-inning loss to the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night was Guilmet's performance, a perfect relief outing after he was called up from Triple-A Norfolk just hours before the game. Promoted to replace right-hander Tommy Hunter, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin, Guilmet tossed 2 1/3 hitless innings against the Indians.
