Is it William Shakespeare or the Bible - or maybe it is Star Trek: "That Is the Question." It's also the first part of the title of The Ultimate Shakespeare Quiz Book, written by a veteran Carroll County high school English teacher whose love for the Bard grew from his students. "It took a while," said Thomas J. Delise of Century High. "I hated it in high school and in college." He said many English teachers are "intimidated by Shakespeare." But the quizzes in the book are not for grades, but for fun - a word Delise uses often.

The perfect scenario for the Liberty girls basketball team this season would be to have senior Amy Wolff bring the ball downcourt and pass it to Wolff on the wing.Because that enticing option is out, coach Tom DeLise has decided to have Wolff be on the receiving end of the first pass this season, instead of giving up the ball, as she did last season when she played point guard."I prefer not to have Amy handle the ball," said DeLise. "I want her to get the first pass, not make the first pass."

The ball hit the floor and, moments later, so did Katie Kelbaugh.Kelbaugh, a starting forward for Liberty, dove to the ground, threw her arms around the Thomas Johnson player and tied her up. Jump ball. Possession to Liberty."She does that a lot," said Amy Wolff, Liberty's top scorer. "She's probably one of the most aggressive players we have."Kelbaugh, a 5-foot-7 senior, does a lot of the so-called dirty work for Liberty. She dives for the loose balls, sets picks, boxes out and plays tough defense -- all vital to the Lions' success.

One of the worst-kept secrets in town the last few weeks has been Mark Amatucci's interest in the basketball job at St. Francis, N.Y. It's a position that would allow him to re-enter Division I, and one in which he would also be replacing one of his former assistants.Loyola didn't renew Amatucci's contract near the end of the 1988-89 season, and he has spent the last two seasons at Anne Arundel Community College, racking up more than 50 wins. He might be waiting some time for word from St. Francis, which is still accepting applications and isn't close to interviewing candidates.
