The Bruins nipped Severna Park, 55-59, in the regional race, then finished third at the Class 4A state meet, one spot better than the three-time county champs.

Many state officials are planning their annual pilgrimage to Maryland's top beach destination for the annual government conference hosted by the Maryland Association of Counties in mid-August. The conference is a well-attended, laid-back affair with policy discussions during the day and outings to political receptions and music-blaring clubs like Seacrets at night.

Feeling confused while driving in Columbia is a common anxiety for the occasional visitor, as Rep. John Sarbanes found out Monday night when he tried to find the Howard County Council for a little televised chat. The renovation of the county's offices in Ellicott City and the council's resulting relocation to quarters in east Columbia made the task all the harder. The freshman Democrat, who represents east Columbia along with sections of Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties and Baltimore City, spent much of the day talking with county business owners, Chamber of Commerce officials and County Executive Ken Ulman, he said, followed by a public town hall meeting at the central library in Columbia.

Dominic Solesky was playing tag behind his family's Towson rowhouse on a spring afternoon when he heard his friend scream. The 10-year-old boy remembers running down the alley to help his pal. He heard a rattle from a nearby cage -- and then saw a brawny dog jump a fence and head his way. The attack's toll: two surgeries for Dominic and more than two weeks in the hospital. Now, a Baltimore County lawmaker says Dominic's suffering shows that more must be done to protect the public from pit bulls.
