I just sold my next book today for a bundle of money, and we're starting shooting on my next TV pilot Saturday."

He looked as if he had hurried in from herding sheep or else stepped off a movie set. But, no, this was a scene from real life and the same character was still playing himself.It was a chance to again see Bert Rechichar, who always looked and talked tough and, most assuredly, played the same way. He once told Howard "Hopalong" Cassady, a Heisman Trophy winner, after tackling him hard along the sidelines, "Listen, Cassady, this ain't Ohio State.

One would think that a home with a base sales price of nearly $420,000 would come with just about every material upgrade imaginable. Not these days. When choosing options for their 4,500 square-foot, four-bedroom Colonial to be built by Ryland Homes, the Walkers went for the works. Among the $73,000 worth of enhancements they selected are: A three-level morning-room extension and sitting room off the master bathroom.

Dan Jones and Bob Ward Liberty As soon as the 2002 season ended, the Liberty Lions immediately recognized their goal for the 2003 campaign: collecting a state crown. Aided by a drop from Class 3A to 2A, Liberty began this fall with a No. 5 ranking and high expectations. But the Lions posted just one victory - at their Run From the Lions Den Invitational - among two thirds, a fourth and a sixth. After finishing second to Westminster at the Carroll County championships, Liberty broke through, winning the Class 2A West region and state titles for the first time in school history.
