David Nocar continued his march through the top half of the draw in the 81st annual Maryland State Amateur championship over his home course, Chartwell Country Club, yesterday, thwarting veteran standouts Phil Fairbanks and Kirk Lombardi to reach today's final. Over 36 holes, Nocar will face Andy Williams, a Washington lawyer from Congressional Country Club who thwarted Evan Hileman in overtime, and former finalist Vance Welch, 5 and 4. Nocar, 40, winner of 10 Chartwell club titles in the past 14 years, knows full well the pressure of playing in front of an appreciative home audience.

"Who is Chip Weinman?" This cryptic question is currently posted on 20 billboards in and around the city. The answer is almost as striking as the question. Chip Weinman is a 62-year-old lobbyist and cancer survivor who has dreamed of being a professional pop crooner for more than 40 years. Though Weinman has sung the national anthem at Orioles games, he has never released an album or performed for a concert audience. That will change Saturday, when Weinman headlines at the Hippodrome Theatre with a 47-piece orchestra, six backup singers and guest star Sheena Easton.

BRUNSWICK - Kathleen Seek feared that her friend Andy Williams was so miserable in Southern California that he might be suicidal. Just 15 months after moving away from the nearby Frederick County town of Knoxville, he told her in an e-mail last week that he didn't want to go to high school anymore. Williams was being picked on for his slight build, for his "country" ways, even for his haircut. "He was just a boy that was hurting," said Seek, a Brunswick High School sophomore. "If you met him on the street, you would love him."

The standoff in Waco has resurrected a dark, nearly forgotten period in the American century.I'm talking, of course, about the days of the "Sing Along with Mitch" TV show.Many of you are too young to remember Mitch Miller. And, unless I'm mistaken, certain shadowy government figures, perhaps with the financial backing of the pop-music industry, have removed all references to Miller and to his particular genre from U.S. history books.You doubt this? Then I challenge you to find a single shred of evidence that the show existed.

WALKERSVILLE -- An 18-year-old resident of this Frederick County town was awaiting extradition yesterday, accused of sending violent threats to teen-agers in the California town where two students were shot to death last week. Maryland State Police arrested Patrick Andrew Smith, 18, just after 9:30 p.m. Friday -- about 12 hours after two San Diego detectives flew into Maryland because they had tracked Internet messages here. Smith also is accused of sending a threatening message Tuesday to a student at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo.

The tour buses in Branson, Mo., are already crawling past the Elvis-A-Rama, the funnel cake parlors, hillbilly moccasin emporiums and glitzy new music theaters here in America's fastest growing vacation center.Once a sleepy Ozarks town but now a billion-dollar phenomenon, Branson has become more than a refuge for a bewildering array of aging pop stars and pre-Garth Brooks country musicians who thrill the faithful at more than 30 theaters there.Instead, the astounding growth of this squeaky clean, virtually all-white, middle-of-nowhere mecca is a revealing slice of America and a reminder about how immense a gulf there often is between those who presume to define culture on the coasts and those who consume it in between.

It was 1966 at the Cocoanut Grove in Los Angeles, and everyone who was anyone was there to hear Bobby Darin sing -- Mia Farrow, Ben Gazzara, Eddie Fisher, Andy Williams, Ryan O'Neal.Dressed to the nines in regal emerald green was wife Sandra Dee -- America's sweetheart -- and their 5-year-old son, Dodd, clad in a custom-made tuxedo that not so coincidentally looked just like his father's.The curtain call was ending and Bobby Darin was standing on stage with his son in his arms. The audience was captivated; the little boy was telling a riddle and his father was laughing in delight.
