The junior ran 18 times for 128 yards and scored the first two touchdowns to get the No. 6 Poets rolling toward a 39-0 victory over New Town for their third straight Class 1A state football championship. On the first possession of the game, the Poets went 58 yards in less than 3 minutes, with Blackston running for all but 1 yard, and scored on his 26-yard run. His 128 yards - all but one of which came in the first half - equalled New Town's total offense for the game. In the semifinal, the 5-foot-9, 192-pound running back gained 269 yards - 49 more than Brunswick's total offense - in the Poets' 40-8 win. For the season, he ran 206 times for 1,781 yards and 17 touchdowns.

NEW YORK -- Shares of Blackstone Group rose 13 percent on their first day of trading yesterday, as investors rushed to latch onto the private equity boom that has swept corporate and financial America. Given the fanfare surrounding the company, the event seemed more like the coronation of a new Wall Street monarch than the public debut of an up-and-coming company. And the stock's "pop" - on a day when the broader market fell sharply - was another sign of how buyout shops such as Blackstone are challenging old-school investment banks and brokerages for dominance.

The five points that Glen Burnie senior forward Garrett Blackstone scored in the team's season-opening win last month didn't come close to the 17 he averaged as a first-team All-County selection last year. But Gophers coach Mike Rudd still left plenty impressed with his versatile team captain. To go with those few but timely points that night, the 6-foot-4 Blackstone grabbed big rebounds, found open teammates, clamped down on defense and made sure to bark out some positive words in the team huddle - all of which has continued as the No. 7 Gophers have progressed through a 9-1 season.

Housing gloomy, despite uptick Sales of previously owned homes nudged up in November, but that didn't improve the broader picture of a feeble U.S. housing market racked by record-high foreclosures and harder-to-get credit. Even with the small 0.4 percent increase, the sales pace was still the second-lowest on record. Home prices also dropped 3.3 percent from November 2006. PHH's sale falls apart PHH Corp. announced that a deal to sell itself fell through because of financing problems.

The collapse of PHH Corp.'s deal to sell itself is a lesson for these credit-crunched times: If you're in the mortgage business, don't count on anyone getting the money to buy you - no matter how decent your prospects look. PHH agreed in March to sell out for $1.8 billion to General Electric Co., which wanted the company's Baltimore County-based vehicle fleet leasing arm and had agreed to immediately resell PHH's mortgage business to the Blackstone Group. But the complex deal began to unravel in September as the outlook for mortgage companies sharply worsened.

The mortgage crisis and resulting credit crunch could sink a deal to buy the parent of PHH Arval, a vehicle fleet leasing company with 1,000 employees in Sparks, the company said yesterday. The disclosure sent shares of parent PHH Corp. down nearly 15 percent, or $4.26, to close at $24.24, reflecting investor skepticism that PHH will be able to close a deal announced in March to be sold for $31.50 a share. Under that deal, which valued the company at $1.8 billion, General Electric Co. subsidiary GE Capital Solutions planned to buy all of PHH, fold the fleet leasing operations into its own and immediately sell PHH's larger mortgage unit to Blackstone Group, a New York-based private equity firm.

Henry Kravis has been doing deals for three decades. He has swung the largest leveraged buyouts in the United States, the Netherlands, Denmark, India, Australia, Singapore and France, say regulatory documents. He has more than doubled his company's assets under management to $50 billion in less than five years and has made himself a billionaire twice over. Now he's offering to cut you in on the action. But on this one you might take a cue from Groucho Marx: If the private equity club wants somebody like you as a member, you don't want to join.
