Bob and Sue Locke are planning to have central air conditioning installed in their 55-year-old Cape Cod home. It will be a single-zone system, with the air handler situated in the attic. Their question is whether the central air installation will require them to have their electrical service upgraded. The heating and air-conditioning contractors from whom they've gotten estimates have differing opinions. Their house has gas heat, a gas range, a gas clothes dryer and a gas-fired water heater.

Our power was restored late Monday afternoon - about 65 hours after the storm. However, during the outage more than a dozen attempts to get information from Baltimore Gross and Eccentric about their priorities and a schedule for restoring power were all unsuccessful. BG&E policy seems to emphasize public relations over providing customers with solid information that might help them cope. This bias is evident on the outage web site, in their automated reporting system, and, most glaringly, by their employee's inability or reluctance to offer any details about priorities and a tentative schedule for restoration in a given neighborhood.

Various ArtistsAmp 2 (Astralwerks 7588)Just as electronica was being declared pop music's next big thing, MTV announced, amid much fanfare, that it was launching "Amp," a music video show designed to capitalize on this new dance-music culture. It was introduced as a look into the future of video music.Or so went the hype. Unfortunately, "Amp" didn't find MTViewers eager to fast-forward past the guitar bands that had long been the cable channel's bread and butter. True, acts like the Chemical Brothers, Prodigy and Propellerheads made significant inroads, but let's be honest - three bands do not a revolution make.

For decades, Liverpool soccer fans at the team's 120-year-old stadium, Anfield, have been singing their adopted anthem, "You'll Never Walk Alone. " Brendan Rodgers, who was named the team's new manager June 1, is hoping that the partisans of the former English Premier League power stay true to the words that were penned nearly 70 years ago by the legendary songwriter Oscar Hammerstein. Rodgers and "The Reds," as Liverpool is known because of the color of its home jerseys, will start walking together during a summer U.S tour, including a friendly against rival Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur, on July 28 at M&T Bank Stadium.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- AMP Inc. urged shareholders to spurn a $9.8 billion buyout offer from AlliedSignal Inc., saying that it's too low and that the world's biggest maker of electrical connectors doesn't fit with AlliedSignal's businesses.As part of its plan to fight the takeover, AMP named Robert M. Ripp, its 57-year-old head of global businesses, as chairman and chief executive officer. Ripp heads a plan to buoy AMP's shares by closing five plants and cutting 7.5 percent of payroll by 2000.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- AMP Inc. reported yesterday that its third-quarter profit dropped 35 percent on slumping sales of its electronic connectors.The news makes it more difficult for the company to defend against AlliedSignal Inc.'s $9.8 billion hostile-takeover offer.AMP, the world's biggest maker of electronic connectors, said profit before charges fell to $79.3 million, or 36 cents a share, from $121.6 million, or 55 cents, in the year-ago period.While the profit decline was less than expected, AMP will have a tough time winning the support of investors if it can't increase sales and earnings.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania House approved legislation yesterday that may help AlliedSignal Inc. in its $9.8 billion hostile bid for AMP Inc., the world's largest maker of electronic connectors.A last-minute amendment would allow AlliedSignal to call a special meeting of AMP's shareholders to consider its offer. That conflicts with an AMP proposal -- also passed by the House -- that limits AlliedSignal's ability to take a shareholder vote for a year and could derail the entire legislation.

In the old days, Tiger Woods might have won the AT&T National with ease. In the old days, Woods might not have needed his closest competitor to bogey the last three holes at Congressional Country Club. In the old days, Woods might not have stopped to acknowledge the two military officers waiting his arrival at the 18th tee before he made his final putt. In the old days, Woods might not have acknowledged the crowd - twice - and high-fived some volunteers en route to the scoring tent.

Billy Hurley III came into the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club having missed the cut in six of his previous seven PGA Tour events. A week playing before friends and family proved to be the perfect panacea for the former Navy standout. The 30-year-old tour rookie, who put off his professional career while finishing his five-year military commitment, had his best tournament since getting his playing card last fall. Hurley finished tied for fourth at 4-under par 280 after a 1-over par 72 Sunday.

Calyl Robinson, 20, of Annapolis is a sophomore at Limestone College. He volunteered for Box of Rain in 2007 and was asked to become an official counselor just three weeks into his tenure. Since then, he has helped the campers with their activities and helped teach them the virtues Box of Rain aims to instill in its campers. How did you get involved with Box of Rain? Four or five summers ago I was actually working at Boatyard Bar and Grill in Eastport and I recently lost that job and my parents got tired of me sitting at home.

It has taken three years, a stretch of time when their career arcs crisscrossed, when their successes and failures were dissected like frogs in a high school biology class, when they seemed to share little except the same swing coach. Such is the way things have gone for Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods since the final round of the 2009 AT&T National. The last time the tournament was held here at Congressional Country Club, Woods appeared invincible, recovered from a serious knee injury and in the midst of another dominating season.

- Billy Hurley III might be in his element at steamy Congressional Country Club for the AT&T National. Not only is the former Navy golfer playing close to where he grew up in Leesburg, Va. and where he now lives in Annapolis, but the triple-digit temperatures that are expected this weekend could be to Hurley's advantage given his military training. "It was 110 in the shade in the Persian Gulf, that was maybe as hot as I've ever been," Hurley said Thursday, when the temperature barely reached the mid-90s.
