Van Billington, Resisting the business maxim that "bigger is better," two longtime family-owned confectioneries in Harford County continue to thrive by staying small and putting excellence ahead of expansion. Log Cabin Candies, which opened in Fallston in 1962, and Bomboy's Home Made Candy, founded in Havre de Grace in 1978, have built and maintained enviable reputations for their mouthwatering chocolates and attentive customer service. But despite a growing demand for their products, both establishments have chosen to remain small and to retain control of their businesses.

WASHINGTON - Playing without starting goaltender Olie Kolzig, the Washington Capitals were helpless and embarrassed last night by the surging Boston Bruins, who got seven goals from seven different players for a 7-2 victory. Continuing a hot early season performance, the Bruins scored four times before the second period was two minutes old and chased backup goalie Craig Billington to the showers for the second time this season. But the loss could not be pinned totally on goaltending. The Capitals went 1-for-8 on the power play and seemed to simply dissolve on defense.

Washington goalie Craig Billington will arrive three hours early for tonight's NHL game, as he has for the last 15 years. The fact that he is the starting goalie for the Southeast Division champion Capitals in their opener won't change a thing. "I've been a starter and a backup," Billington said. "I've split games. I've been an All-Star. I've been bought out of a contract. And I've had no job at all. It's better than having been an All-Star every year of my career. There have been so many situations in my life, and I've learned from all of them.

WASHINGTON - From the Capitals' perspective, the best thing about their NHL season opener at MCI Center last night was the raising of the 1999-2000 Southeast Division championship banner. The second-best thing was the ceremony honoring goalie Olie Kolzig for his Vezina Trophy performance of last season. And the third-best thing was the national anthem. You get the picture. At 1:36 of the opening period, the corners of Capitals coach Ron Wilson's mouth began to dip south and never changed course.

Bruins: Their No. 1 goaltender, Bill Ranford, was a late scratch for Monday night's playoff game against Florida because of a sore right ankle. Craig Billington started in his place and allowed six goals in a 6-2 loss to the Panthers. Billington had not started since a Feb. 7 loss to Buffalo. Ray Sheppard, who had a goal and three assists for Florida, now has seven points in the first two games against Boston. Ranford is not expected back for Game 3 in Boston tonight.Pub Date: 4/24/96

WASHINGTON -- The Library of Congress politely but firmly refused yesterday to take off the public shelves the Supreme Court papers of the late Justice Thurgood Marshall and told the court to look after its secrets itself.The head of the library, James H. Billington, did not respond in kind to the anger in the court's letter of complaint this week about prompt release of the Marshall papers, a file held in hundreds of boxes and revealing vast amounts of detail about the internal wheeling-and-dealing of the justices over their decisions.

Elizabeth Longford, 96, the best-selling biographer and political activist who was the widow of the social reformer Lord Longford and the matriarch of a family that bred other well-known writers, died Wednesday at her home in Sussex. From her school years through the nearly seven decades of her marriage to Lord Longford, she was famous for her intelligence, beauty, vitality and vivacity. She was already an academic and social success at Oxford University when John Betjeman, one of the many literary figures she befriended, called her "the aesthetes' moll."

It was appropriate that when the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the only significant authoritarian ruler remaining in Europe, his acceptance speech resembled a blackmail note: Give me money or you'll be sorry. Sorry, Mr. Gorbachev says, because he can't be responsible for the ugly consequences of continuing collapse.What is he responsible for? He says he deplores his government's violence in the Baltics and other nationalities' disputes. He says he deplores his government's unrelenting investment of 25 percent of GNP in militarism.
