For Carver A&T's Shannon Herlihy, Thursday night's trip to the state volleyball semifinal was an experience in itself. Thanks to her play and that of her teammates, there will be another first on Saturday evening. It will be the first time Carver plays for a state volleyball championship.

It's fitting that graduation season arrives in these parts even as spring is starting to give way to summer. All around, it's a time for looking forward to the good times ahead. The season comes with something that's familiar to those of us who have forgotten more than a few commencement addresses: a general notion that the advice to be offered is a lot like the greeting at the end of the American Top 40 radio show back when Casey Kasem was the host and he would sign off with the greeting, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.

After losing close games to two ranked opponents already this season, the Ben Franklin-Masonville boys basketball team followed a difficult path to get over the hump in its third chance Tuesday. The Bayhawks rallied from an 18-point deficit and got a free throw from Parrish Wragg with no time left on the clock to come away with an improbable 57-56 win over No. 10 Centennial at the IAABO Board 290 Memorial Mixer at Northwestern. Leon Fleming scored 21 points and Antoine Montgomery added 16 to help set up Wragg's game-ending heroics.

BEN FRANKLIN never looked better. He's gotten younger, his hair is darker and more plentiful, there's a mischievous glint in his eyes and a Mona Lisa expression on his mouth. It's a cosmetic makeover that should improve Americans' impression of this Founding Father -- if they happen to come into possession of a $100 bill.Early next year, the new Franklin will start appearing as the U.S. Treasury cranks out its redesigned $100 bill aimed at deterring high-tech counterfeiters. The Franklin image is larger and slightly off-center.

Robert Morse, a physics teacher, considers Ben Franklin his lab partner. And the result is shocking. "Ooh hoo, yes, good day!" Morse shouted yesterday as a spark leapt to his hand from a primitive battery during a duplication of 18th-century electric experiments at the Johns Hopkins University. "This is just the right size of shock to give a student." During a conference of the American Association of Physics Teachers, Morse used household materials to re-create the discoveries of Franklin, the founding father and scientific pioneer.

Follow your fixations. Follow your obsessions." That's the advice given to performance artist Josh Kornbluth two-thirds of the way into his solo show, Ben Franklin: Unplugged. It's advice that the Berkeley-based monologist has followed, not only in this piece - currently at the Theatre Project - but in his entire body of work. For example, there was his fixation on his relationship with his New York Jewish Communist parents (Red Diaper Baby), and there was his fixation on becoming a mathematical genius, which came to an abrupt halt when he was an Ivy League freshman (The Mathematics of Change)

In America's current political climate, where few trust our elected officials, Ben Franklin's humorous words are like a breath of cool mountain air on a sultry summer night. Living in Philadelphia, where America's political system was born, Franklin poured forth such wit and wisdom from a mental stream that never seemed to run dry.For those who want to learn more about our political system and this noble statesman -- whose vibrant life would never have survived today's media scrutiny -- Philadelphia is a must.

"I think you should read 'Ben Franklin Beware.' It is like a mystery book. The characters Laura and Parker go back into time. For all the little kids who don't know who Ben Franklin is, Ben Franklin is a man who discovered electricity. Ben Franklin made the TVs come on. I think you will be very interested."Crystal Floyd,Elmwood Elementary"I really liked the book 'Lafcadio: The Lion Who Shot Back,' by Shel Silverstein. I liked reading about the lion dining in a restaurant. He demanded to be served marshmallows instead of dinner."

Host Ben Franklin-Masonville Cove (11-4) used a trio of 12-point scorers and switching defenses to keep No. 15 Dunbar (8-8) off balance in the second half for a 62-56 win Tuesday. The Poets, led by Keshawn Hampton with a game-high 16 points, brought the pressure in the first half and built a 33-26 halftime lead. But in the second half, Ben Franklin settled down and kept switching zone defenses every two possessions, which frustrated Dunbar and led to turnovers and the lead. Tre Henriques, Terry Page and Robert Goodwin each scored 12 points for the Bayhawks in the upset.

No. 13 Lake Clifton boys basketball trailed by one to No. 10 Edmondson with 42 seconds left at the 17th Annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State on Friday night.

Deep and versatile, the Poly boys basketball team can win games a number of different ways. Many of them were on display in the first quarter of Tuesday's game at Ben Franklin-Masonville. The No. 13 Engineers started hot from the outside. Later, they looked inside for points while playing solid defense to jump out to a double-digit lead in the first quarter. The rest of the game, every time the Bayhawks made a run, the Engineers answered and came away with a70-63 win. Most of the later answers came from senior center Darrell Shaw, who scored 15 of his team-high 17 points in the second half.
