The Maryland attorney general's office has reached a settlement of more than $500,000 with Debtscape Inc., a Linthicum credit counseling agency that was accused of improperly charging fees to consumers years ago. More than 1,000 Marylanders who used Debtscape services from 1999 to October 2003 could be due refunds, Philip D.Ziperman, an assistant attorney general, said yesterday. Because of the size of the settlement, Debtscape is making monthly payments to the state, which eventually will make refunds to consumers over the next four to five years.

Libby Ballenger's Winfield log house combines the airy informality of a beach house with the owner's love of rustic furnishings. The result is a home that seems to welcome the best of every season.On a recent afternoon, a gentle breeze passed through Ballenger's living room while sunlight cast a golden glow on the southern white pine logs with which the house is built. In winter, she said, the same room becomes a cozy haven from the cold outside, warmed by the cheery wood stove that sits on the large stone hearth.

It was close, but Doug Ballenger, a former Baltimorean, did make it into the Mid-Am field.Championship qualifying for the 15th annual U.S. Mid-Amateur begins this morning at Caves Valley Golf Club and Woodholme Country Club and continues tomorrow, with the low 64 scorers advancing to match play Monday at Caves Valley.Ballenger, the manager of national accounts for Club Car, said he opted to try the Williamsburg (Va.) qualifier because he was there on business. He had to survive a three-for-two playoff at the Golden Horseshoe's Green Course, but that was nothing compared to the wedge shot he holed at the 18th just to get into the playoff.

BATON ROUGE, La. - It was almost 7 p.m. when the phone rang, and Hong Im Ballenger should have been home from her shift at the Beauty Depot. Come quickly, a co-worker told James Ballenger. There was an accident. Ballenger climbed into his gray pickup. He rushed to the store his wife had managed for almost a year, where she sold shampoos and barrettes and fished out change from her own wallet if a customer came up short. As he drove, he prayed. Whatever had happened, he thought, they would be OK. They had been married for 20 years.

A new group that claims to be an advocate for consumers seeking credit counseling was in fact created by players in the burgeoning debt- counseling industry. The group, Consumers for Responsible Credit Solutions, recently issued a scathing report attacking traditional counseling agencies, charging that they act more in the interests of the banks that finance them than of indebted consumers. The group's creation and its report highlight the growing schism between new and old-line debt-counseling agencies.

MANASSAS, Va. - The families of the sniper victims spent so many days in court together during the six-week trial of John Allen Muhammad last fall that they greeted each other like old friends at the courthouse yesterday, their bonds forged by the losses they shared. They filled six rows in Courtroom 4 here, alternately hugging, crying and smiling. They asked sheriff's deputies for a box of tissues in the moments before the sentencing hearing began, and they held one another's arms as they walked out of the courtroom two hours later, their wish for justice fulfilled.

Marion Lewis, whose daughter Lori Ann Lewis-Rivera was shot and killed at a Kensington gas station more than a year ago, said yesterday that he stayed away from the Lee Boyd Malvo trial for his own good. "To be frank, I didn't want to end up in jail," said Lewis, 51, from his home in Mountain Home, Idaho. "When you catch someone with blood on his hands, don't waste our time. Get a rope." For Lewis, yesterday's conviction of Malvo stoked feelings of revenge. But others who lost loved ones last year as Malvo and his partner, John Allen Muhammad, terrorized the Washington area felt a measure of relief.
