When the final buzzer sounded on yesterday's state Class 2A girls basketball championship game, City senior Akilah Sewell dropped to the floor with her hands over her face. If you didn't know any better, you would have thought her team had just lost, but the No. 4 Knights had just become the first City College team to win a state championship in any sport - and they did it by defeating previously unbeaten River Hill, 59-51, in overtime at UMBC's RAC Arena. "I wanted this so bad," Sewell said.

Early on in Saved!, a gentle satire of life at an evangelical Christian high school, a student named Dean swims to the bottom of a pool with his girlfriend, Mary, and tells her that he might be gay. Stunned, Mary breaks for the surface, accidentally banging her head against a ladder. A bearded carpenter, working nearby, dives to the rescue. Before pulling Mary to safety, the carpenter morphs into Jesus Christ and tells her she must do everything she can to help Dean. How Mary interprets this apparent request from the Almighty is at the heart of Saved!

At his last meeting as a member of Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission, Grant S. Dannelly questioned yesterday the ruling from an ethics panel that has led to his exit from the commission two days before the end of his term. Dannelly, whose five-year term expires tomorrow, used the commission's regular monthly meeting as a forum for presenting his side of a controversy that has surrounded him for more than six months. He contended he was repeatedly denied opportunities "to present my side on a level playing field" to the county commissioners and the ethics board.

I DONT blame Grant S. Dannelly for his philippic against the county government and its lack of growth-control commitment. Many of us would have done the same thing, stung by official rebuke from the Ethics Commission and the termination of his service on the county Planning and Zoning Commission. It may have been technically out of order, but personal remarks of members have long been tolerated by these bodies of citizen volunteers. Especially when the remarks constitute a farewell message.

When the planning commission meets today, member Grant S. Dannelly will not be allowed to vote. The county commissioners pointed to an ethics violation and unanimously asked Dannelly "to no longer sit as a voting member" on the panel, where he has served since 1995. They informed Dannelly in a letter last week. Because Dannelly's term expires this month, the decision will only affect today's meeting. "We have to uphold standards for all our boards," said Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier.
