Rarely is a team, or its city, connected to one seminal moment in the way the Baltimore Colts are connected in so many minds with the 1958 NFL Championship game at the New York Giants, known as the "Greatest Game Ever Played. " On the cusp of Super Bowl XLVIII , which is back in the New York metro area at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, one Campus Hills resident would like to see his Towson neighborhood memorialized as the community where several Colts greats from that era called home.

VERSAILLES, Mo. -- The Hughes brothers admit they conned a few people back in the day. From mobsters to bartenders to the Army, they told stories a bit short of the truth in return for quick cash, another free pour or to hide from the law. This time, the brothers insist, they're not lying. Sit a while and listen to them reminisce and you begin to wonder whether the tales they spin could possibly be fact. A wrongful imprisonment, a jailbreak, years on the lam. Correspondence with a U.S. president, cooperation in a corruption investigation, consorts with topless dancers.

The Baltimore County library and school systems are teaming up to get library cards in the hands of nearly 10,000 kindergartners and preschoolers by later this spring. The goal of the "My First Library Card" project is to better prepare children for school by exposing them to books and to teach their parents that it's never too early to start reading to them, said Lynn Lockwood, assistant director of the Baltimore County Public Library. While many young children use their parents' library cards, the new cards are designed to give them a sense of ownership, said Lockwood, who coordinates the program.

Danielle Steel and Scott Turow are all wet. So are more than a thousand books by other novelists after a fire sprinkler malfunctioned in the Towson library yesterday minutes before the library opened, drenching the fiction shelves. "It just went off, a huge rush of water," said librarian Joe Thompson, who was standing near the fiction section putting books onto shelves when the sprinkler erupted. "I just stared for the first couple seconds." Thompson and other workers sprang into action, ripping books from the shelves and grabbing wastebaskets to bail the mounting pools of water.

More than a decade after budget cuts forced the Lansdowne branch of the Baltimore County Public Library to close, the county plans to open a "mini-library" there early next year. The budget for the fiscal year that began this month includes $437,000 to open and operate a scaled-down version of a regular branch. The county is looking for space to lease in hopes of having a 3,000-square-foot facility in operation in Lansdowne by January. Although it would be about a sixth of the size of a typical branch, the new mini-library "will not be simply something with a few best-selling books," library spokesman Bob Hughes said.
