Raytheon Co., whose long record of steady profit growth has been one of the surest bets on Wall Street, surprised investors yesterday by announcing that its third-quarter operating income will be significantly lower than last year's because of problems in two of its four core divisions.The diversified giant based in Lexington, Mass., called the shortfall a temporary "bump in the road," and said it expected to report higher earnings per share for the quarter and for the year.But such assurances were no comfort to investors, who, after bidding up Raytheon stock to a yearly high earlier this week, quickly dumped it yesterday.

Player of the YearPat Wynne, South Carroll, senior, midfield: The two-year varsity starter and team co-captain filled the leadership void admirably. Widely considered one of the most dangerous players in the open field, Wynne scored 39 goals -- third-best in the county. He also added nine assists. Wynne also was willing to take on any role coach Jeff Alisauckas asked of him. When faceoff specialists Danny Stansbury and Derek Clark were sidelined with injuries, Wynne won 60 percent of the faceoffs in a 14-12 win over Watkins Mill in the second round of the Class 3A-4A West regional playoffs.

Richmond C. Laney, accused of stockpiling an arsenal in his Howard County home, once held a federal firearms license that allowed him to more easily buy and sell guns - but not the kind of military weapons and explosives investigators found on his property. By the time police searched his Ellicott City home July 14, uncovering a huge cache of weapons, Laney had been out of the firearms business for six years, according to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' licensing records. The records obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act show that Laney first received a firearms dealer license in 1988, which allowed him to more easily and inexpensively buy weapons such as rifles, shotguns, pistols and revolvers.

There's really no knocking this: FOD gathered Michael K. Williams(Omar), Sonja Sohn (Kima), Andre Royo (Bubbles) and Felicia Pearson (Snoop) for the four-minute piece that features a song with the lyrics "I'm just a burner.
