A federal investigator has found that Maryland's Medicaid program had a 95 percent error rate in seeking reimbursement for room and board for the developmentally disabled and thus owes the U.S. government nearly $21 million. Advocates expressed concern that the findings could lead to budget cuts to the program and longer stays on waiting lists for vulnerable individuals and struggling families. In a report released Friday, the inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said that over a three-year period, state health officials routinely billed the federal government for room-and-board costs that were ineligible under Medicaid rules.

Red Eye, with Rachel McAdams as a reluctant airline passenger who probably should have stayed on the ground, is a welcome antidote to the bloated, overthought and oversold studio pictures that have been drawing a collective yawn from audiences this summer. It's a taut thriller with a strong character at its core and a despicable villain there to torment her every step of the way, a crowd-pleaser in all the best senses of the term. Director Wes Craven, working with first-time screenwriter Carl Ellsworth, wastes not a single moment in telling the story of Lisa Reisart, the manager of a high-priced Miami hotel, who is forced to take a red-eye flight back home after attending the funeral of her grandmother.

There are two types of people in this world. Those who get Kevin Costner and those who don't.Those of us in the latter club believe that Costner hasn't made a watchable movie since "Bull Durham," and we scratch our heads at our friends and loved ones who will watch this blandest and most wooden of all movie stars in anything, including "Waterworld," "The Postman" and "Message in a Bottle.""For Love of the Game" will do nothing to clear this mystery up.Costner's fans will no doubt adore this two-hour-long orgy of Costner close-ups, slow-motion shots and other bits of the actor's metastasizing vainglory.

Rated NC-17 (sex, nudity). Sun score: *** 1/2 Writer-director Michael Cuesta's L.I.E. (short for Long Island Expressway) bravely tackles adolescence, sexuality and perversity by treating them as they really are: conditions of unfathomable complexity that defy categorization but are ignored (or oversimplified) at mankind's peril. Howie Blitzer (Paul Franklin Dano) is a teen-age loner, though not by choice: His mother is dead, his father's a swindler, his friends a directionless bunch burglarizing homes in Long Island.

Hereford was dressed to take care of some unfinished business against Catonsville in last night's 1A-2A boys lacrosse final at North County.There were lightning bolts on the sides of their helmets and the phrase "Defense wins championships" on the backs of shirts worn underneath their jerseys.The reason: The game represented a rematch of a lightning-shortened regular season contest stopped with Hereford ahead entering the final period.Last night, keeper Tim Mascari (11 saves) stopped three shots in the final 12 seconds and got support from a balanced offense as the No. 14 Bulls (13-3)

"Amazing, awesome, incredible" and "I am overjoyed" were among the responses I received to the news that the increase in the alcohol tax enacted this week by the General Assembly will help fund services for people with developmental disabilities. These responses came from families who have languished on the state's waiting list for essential supports for many years. We estimate that more than 500 children and adults with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down Syndrome will finally receive the support they desperately need.

In the movie version of Augusten Burroughs' memoir, Running With Scissors, the writer-producer-director, Ryan Murphy, best-known for creating FX's Nip/Tuck, uses a cascade of goofy-creepy episodes from Burroughs' early life for gross-out comedy and psychodrama and even grosser sentimentality. It's a clever variation on you'll laugh, you'll cry entertainment - here, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gag. But it's a bit too much like a TV series: That '70s Show becomes "That '70s Freakshow."
