If the editors of The Sun believe that a recently-issued apology by the Howard County school board ("Howard school board apologizes for segregation," Nov. 16) that relates to treatment of African-American students 49 years ago warrants front page above the fold coverage, it cannot be considered to be a serious newspaper.

Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

Becky Groves Century When the junior varsity coach at Century quit just before the 2008 season, athletic director Randy Pentz knew just where to find a worthy replacement. That choice eventually led to the school's first state title in volleyball. After just a year on the JV level, Groves was promoted to the varsity job, where she has compiled a 47-6 record in three years for the No. 3 Knights (18-1). The team improved each year under her leadership and almost had an undefeated season this year before dropping the final regular-season match to Williamsport.

It was a showdown between two undefeated Carroll County rivals, and for more than a half, it looked as if neither would lose. But then No. 5 Westminster went to its ball-control game and senior defender Ashton Maseth found teammate Amanda Irving for the game's first goal. She followed by scoring one herself to lead the Owls to a 2-1 victory over No. 4 Century. "This was a special game," said Maseth, who scored her fifth and biggest goal of the season. "Being undefeated and playing another undefeated county team definitely makes your whole team stay up and play its 'A' game.

When the whistle sounded at the end of the second half, Manchester Valley found itself in a familiar position. For the third time in three games, the visiting Mavericks would need overtime to decide the outcome, this time against Century.

It sounds great on the surface that there would actually be a place in the world where opportunity and money abound, knowing no imaginable limits. Almost as though a new life, full of the freedoms, finances and prospects, is ripe for the picking from the American Dream tree. Such is the too-good-to-be-true nature of this centuries old image that has charmed foreigners to uproot their lives, families and futures to cross a border into an immense unknown: the glistening USA. But, as they say, all that glitters is not gold - something to keep in mind when considering crossing an arbitrary line in the hopes it could change one's life so radically and, more importantly, effortlessly.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

Paul Blair doesn't have a statue behind center field at Camden Yards, and he wasn't honored by the Orioles with a uniform patch this season after he passed away last December. But he does have a legion of fans in Baltimore who plan to honor him with signs and cheers when the Orioles and the New York Yankees play a doubleheader at Camden Yards on Friday. The grassroots tribute to a guy who was arguably the greatest defensive center fielder in club history began earlier in the week when Baltimore City Council Chairman Bernard C. “Jack” Young introduced a resolution honoring Blair, who made his major league debut with the Orioles 50 years ago this past Tuesday.

- The Battle of Caulk's Field, the engagement at which the local soldiers of the Kent County militia stood up to the highly trained British Royal Navy and Marines, unfolded in the darkness of the early morning of Aug. 31, 1814. The only light came from the moon and the flashes of the troops' muskets. On Sunday, the 200th anniversary of the pivotal skirmish, historical interpreters brought the battle out into the daylight, allowing spectators to see the action that foreshadowed the defense of Fort McHenry and the eventual American victory in the War of 1812.

On Aug. 26, 1920, Congress certified passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing all women citizens the right to vote. The jubilant day - since proclaimed "Women's Equality Day" - climaxed a long persistent half-century campaign for women's suffrage and led to the creation that year of the League of Women Voters. But equality did not automatically come along with the right to vote. And today, nearly a century later, there is still much work to be done. While significant progress has been made through legislation and court action in reversing laws and practices detrimental to women - including those by banks and lenders denying women mortgages on homes and care loans - inequities remain.
