Wade Korvin, Archbishop Spalding, football It's not often a punter gets to be the star of the game, but Korvin called a fake punt and threw a 36-yard pass for a first down that set up the game-winning touchdown Friday night, giving the Cavaliers a 27-24 win over Cardinal Gibbons in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference game. He averaged 39 yards on eight punts in the game. On one play, the ball was snapped over his head to inside the 5-yard line, but he recovered to kick it to the Gibbons 25. Korvin, a junior who also plays lacrosse, doubles as a cornerback.

What's old is new again: Drying clothes on a line instead of in an energy-sucking dryer; collecting rain in barrels to water the lawn and garden; saving kitchen scraps and yard waste to make rich compost. But too many community associations have failed to keep up with the times. Many prohibit these and other eco-friendly (and economical) activities on aesthetic grounds. Others enforce burdensome barriers of approval that might as well be a ban. It's time for state and local governments to step in and protect homeowners' rights to take these sorts of reasonable steps to improve the environment and their pocketbooks.

$59.99 for Microsoft Xbox 360. Rated Teen *** (3 STARS) Halo was originally planned as a real-time strategy game, but series creator Bungie didn't make Halo Wars, the first nonshooter in the series. Instead, it was developed by strategy veterans Ensemble Studios, the company behind Microsoft's Age of Empires and Age of Mythologies games. Ensemble was shut down by Microsoft after Halo Wars was completed. The studio's end is disappointing, especially given the quality on display here. Halo Wars - to be released today - takes place 20 years before the discovery of a Halo installation in the first game.
