Numbers aside, Ahrens' complete attention is on one thing: Helping the team capture its first Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference championship.

Over the next six months, the musicals of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty will be so well represented on Baltimore stages, they practically constitute an unofficial Ahrens and Flaherty festival. The celebration has begun, with an enjoyable, rare revival of their 1988 musical Lucky Stiff at Cockpit in Court. Next month, the Maryland Arts Festival will stage the pair's 1998 Broadway musical Ragtime, and in December, Center Stage will produce their 1990 show Once on This Island. Although musicals can be made from almost any subject, Lucky Stiff stems from a highly bizarre source - a comic crime novel called The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo, by Michael Butterworth, which includes a corpse among its main characters.

The Vice Fund went on sale to the public this month, billing itself as a "socially irresponsible fund" that will put investors' assets into tobacco, gambling, liquor and defense. The Vice Fund's founder, a Texas research and investment outfit with $240 million in assets under management, says the industries it has singled out for the Vice Fund are easy for the public to understand and largely recession-proof. The economy could boom or slump, but a cigarette still gives smokers a jolt of nicotine that keeps them hooked.

At halftime of Westminster's boys lacrosse game at Mount Hebron yesterday, it looked as if it would be a day Owls coach Jim Peters soon would like to forget.But shortly after Westminster's 10-9 come-from-behind win, Peters said, "I'll be an old man in a wheelchair still talking about this game."The Owls (4-0) sleepwalked through the first half as Mount Hebron (2-2) built a five-goal lead. After Hebron scored the opening goal of the third quarter to make it 8-2, Westminster charged back with eight unanswered goals and held off a late Hebron rally to come away with the 10-9 win.Senior attacker Chris Ahrens led the way with four second-half goals and Jamie Grocki's unassisted goal with 3:17 left in the game gave the Owls a 9-8 lead they never would relinquish.

The Owls experienced some problems passing and executing plays.

THE socially responsible Domini Social Equity Fund, which is based in New York's SoHo and avoids tobacco, alcohol, weapon and gambling stocks, has delivered a total return of 14 percent the past 12 months. The socially irresponsible Vice Fund, which is based in Dallas and partakes of the above-named categories like Dean Martin drank martinis, has produced a 29 percent return in 12 months and likes its prospects just fine. The wages of sin are death, St. Paul told the Romans, but apparently one can do quite nicely meanwhile in one's individual retirement account.

JUST WHEN the socially responsible investing movement was gaining some respect for better performance, along comes an insurgent: the socially irresponsible mutual fund. The Dallas-based Vice Fund posted a 1-year return of 33.82 percent for the year ending June 30, predominantly by investing in gambling, alcohol, tobacco and defense. Manager Dan Ahrens considers these industries recession-proof despite their political incorrectness. In fact, the so-called sin stocks have performed well in downturns on the theory that consumers will drown their financial woes in vice.

LOOK! HERE is a perfect tree!" said Megan Lawson of Owings Mills to her sister Jessica Ahrens of Waldorf, pointing to a 6 1/2 -foot Douglas fir. Ahrens was skeptical. "Let's keep going," she said and marched on with her mother, Bev Lawson, husband, Clayton Ahrens, and baby Megan. The group passed from tree to tree on a cold November day at Nicholson's Tree Farm in Bristol. On 100 rolling acres of South County farmland, the Nicholsons have about 17,000 trees, from seedlings to 15-footers, to choose from - and Jessica Ahrens is particularly choosy.

Westminster coach Jim Peters calls the start of this season the craziest he has been part of in his 14 years of coaching -- 12 of which have been with Owls lacrosse.By season's end, it also has the possibility of being one of the best for Peters and his experienced Westminster squad."It's really hard to tell. We've had 15 days of practice up to this point and have only gotten out on grass three times," Peters said."We've got some very good seniors who are working hard and ready to go."Peters' entire attack consists of seniors, led by John Bolesta and Chris Ahrens.
