When Our Lady of the Angels Chapel was built and dedicated in the early 20th century, it was surrounded by the rolling hills and open countryside of a farm that served as a retreat for the members of the Catholic order of the Sulpician Fathers.  For years, the chapel was the centerpiece of St. Charles College, a Catholic Seminary that operated at the site on Maiden Choice Lane from 1911 until 1977. Through the years, the chapel, with its vaulted Italian marble walls, 68-foot-tall dome and ornate stone, buff brick, limestone and terra cotta construction has stood as an exquisite example of Italian Renaissance architecture.

BOSTON -- Kevin Millar reminded reporters all spring that lineup forecasting was pointless, because "things have a way of working themselves out." Millar was expected to be the odd man out this season, losing at-bats in the first base, designated hitter and left-field shuffle to Jay Gibbons, Jay Payton and Aubrey Huff. However, all he's done is become the club's everyday first baseman and a fixture in the middle of the lineup. He entered last night's game with 449 plate appearances. He signed a one-year $2.75 million deal this offseason with a 2008 guaranteed option that will vest at 475 plate appearances.

Their top scorer, guard Andre Collins, couldn't make a shot. Their other Maryland transfer, center Hassan Fofana, sat riddled with foul trouble. It was a combination that nearly spelled disaster for the Loyola Greyhounds in the second half yesterday against Rider. After watching his team squander a 19-point lead, however, coach Jimmy Patsos turned to veteran Shane James to keep Loyola from its first three-game losing streak this season. James, the Greyhounds' only third-year starter, drove the lane, spun and scored on a layup with 3.6 seconds to play, preserving a 78-76 win before 2,317 at Reitz Arena.

The last time Loyola College's men won a basketball game, Rider visited Reitz Arena and bowed in overtime almost exactly a year ago. There was no encore last night, when the Broncs returned to town for their annual Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference meeting on North Charles Street. Rider (7-5, 2-1) took command with a 12-3 run to launch the second half and was never threatened afterward in handing Loyola its 25th consecutive defeat, 71-59. Loyola's streak is the longest current Division I slide in the nation.

WASHINGTON - In the early days of the Bush administration, allegiance to the conservative debate club known as the Federalist Society was declared almost in a whisper. A nominee for a top Justice Department post, grilled by a Democratic senator last year about his membership in the society, professed that he had no idea what its politics were. Judicial nominees, meanwhile, scrambled to disavow positions they had taken before the society. As critics attacked its influence in the White House, members complained of McCarthyite smear tactics.

Justin Barnes doesn't do regrets. Big runs, athletic catches, wicked hits -- that's more his forte, just like the rest of Oakland Mills' football team these days. Because when you start your season 0-3, but win your next four games in convincing fashion, including yesterday's 28-14 defeat of Wilde Lake, the difficulties in the beginning are all but history. "I knew we had a good team, we just had to get some things together," said Barnes, who rushed 21 times for 114 yards and scored three touchdowns.
