AT 15 MINUTES before 10 o'clock Tuesday night, the night he all but got himself elected mayor of Baltimore, a soaking-wet Martin O'Malley stepped from a shower and did what every man in his situation wishes to do: He reached protectively for some precinct returns."

When Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles scans pop radio these days, she likes the newfound variety she hears. Recently, more traditional acts such as Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum have popped up amidst the sea of dance starlets such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Britney Spears. Such a mix was hard to come by a few years ago, she said, when bubble gum pop had a stranglehold on the charts. It gives Nettles hope for the future of pop — and country — music. "When I see little Taylor Swift, I say, 'Go go go,'" she said.

Crossover's got game, not to mention the best of intentions. But it's too clunky by half, with characters who bounce way too quickly from one emotion to the next, dialogue that must have looked better on the page than it sounds coming out of the actors' mouths, and a desperate need to show off its street cred that sometimes threatens to make the film a parody of itself. Anthony Mackie (She Hate Me) and Wesley Jonathan (TV's What I Like About You) are Tech and Cruise, best buds who have become stars on the Detroit basketball scene.

Managers of Baltimore's Lyric Opera House plan to begin construction this summer on a multimillion-dollar expansion and modernization of its backstage area - part of an effort to make the 1894 theater more capable of accommodating elaborate, large-scale productions. Architect Jonathan Fishman of RCG Inc. presented revised plans for the project Thursday to the city's Urban Design and Architectural Review Panel. The latest design is a scaled-back version of previous plans. Sandy Richmond, executive director of the nonprofit Lyric Foundation that owns the building, said he did not have a cost estimate for the latest design.

If I order meat and my wife orders fish, what kind of wine will work for both of us? The answer that I got from several wine savants is a "crossover" wine. This is a style of wine that, in simplistic terms, is not too red and not too white. It is the happy compromise that we seek in so many areas of life. In addition to producing marital harmony, picking a bottle of crossover wine from a restaurant wine list can make economic sense as well. Ordering a bottle of crossover wine that holds five glasses is usually much less expensive than ordering the same number of wines by the glass.

Wayne Brady admits that he's "incredibly" tired of requests to quote the Chappelle's Show sketch in which he plays himself as a foul-mouthed, violent pimp who terrorizes prostitutes, cops and Dave Chappelle himself. "I think it's a wonderful compliment," he says in an interview to promote the film Crossover. "I'm glad people love the sketch, but that's what it was, a sketch. So if my hip factor rose in certain quadrants, good for them." While the world gleefully embraced the entertainer's homicidal lampoon of his normally wholesome image, Brady is more than ready to move on and show what else he can do. The comedian, singer, dancer, writer and producer takes a dramatic turn in Crossover, which opens nationwide today.

CHICAGO - A boom in truck buying in the 1990s helped push the resale value of pickups and sport utility vehicles to lofty levels well above most cars, but market forces are starting to pull them back down. When Paul Taylor, an economist for the National Automobile Dealers Association, tracked the values of the best-selling 1999 vehicles from January 2000 to January 2001, four of the five biggest losers were trucks. The Ford Explorer dropped 20 percent, the Ford Expedition 14.5, Dodge Grand Caravan 14.4 and the Dodge Ram pickup 14. (The car that cracked the top five was the Chevrolet Cavalier, losing 16.5 percent of its value.

WASHINGTON -- With John McCain's harsh attack on the religious right still fresh in their minds, Virginia Republicans awarded George W. Bush a lopsided victory yesterday over his chief rival and put Bush's presidential campaign back on the winning track. The Texas governor's success in Virginia handed him a bounty of 56 delegates to the Republican nominating convention and restored some luster to his White House bid as the candidates head into the all-important "Super Tuesday" next week.

Though he's a three-term incumbent in a district where Democrats hold an edge over Republicans, Democratic State Sen. John C. Astle said he's working harder this campaign season than ever before. He's knocked on more doors, raised more money and done extensive polling. "I'm just counting the days. This has been the hardest campaign I've had," Astle said. "This has been pretty exhausting." The man who's been giving Astle, 63, a run for his money is freshman Del. Herbert H. McMillan. "Astle has voted to the left on all [the]

Anne Arundel County is closing a stretch of a Severna Park road today because of a sinkhole. St. Andrew's Road between St. Ives Drive and St. Andrew's Crossover will be closed until further notice, while the road is repaired. Matt Diehl, a county spokesman, said the sinkhole formed after heavy rain and an irrigation pipe from the Chartwell Golf and Country Club broke. It has grown to 10 feet wide by 30 feet long, but is mostly on the side of the road. Residents can access the neighborhood from Benfield Road via Saint Ives Drive and Saint Andrew's Crossover.

Leona Lewis sounds as if she's been a star for years - composed and self-assured. It's little wonder: The British pop singer has been preparing for her moment in the spotlight since she was a kid growing up in East London. But the 23-year-old artist certainly didn't anticipate her runaway success. In her native country, Lewis is a huge sensation. In late 2006, she became the winner of The X Factor, an international music talent show popular in the United Kingdom. Her album Spirit, released in the U.K. in November, became Britain's fastest-selling debut ever, entering the charts at No. 1 and selling close to 3 million copies.

Corin Adams glides across the court like a magician waiting to perform her next sleight-of-hand trick on an unsuspecting opponent. Here's the ball, there's that delicious, slow-motion crossover dribble. Gotcha. There she goes, racing down the floor, ball out front. Oops, there it went - around her back. An easy two. Adams, a 5-foot-5 sophomore point guard for the Morgan State women's basketball team, keeps fans and opposing players on their toes. She has a portfolio of moves - an effective drop step, a devilish double pump and that nasty crossover - that's unsettling for any defender, no matter the size.
