The trustee in the 7-year-old bankruptcy liquidation case of retailer Merry-Go-Round Enterprises Inc. is paying $85 million to creditors, including landlords and former executives, partially satisfying claims that some had given up hope of ever receiving. The latest distribution in the case represents 30 percent of $260 million claimed by about 4,000 creditors, Deborah Hunt Devan, the court-appointed trustee, said yesterday. Once a Maryland retail institution and Wall Street darling, the national chain of teen apparel shops struggled for two years to emerge from bankruptcy protection before going out of business in February 1996.

A federal bankruptcy judge yesterday dismissed a lawsuit by the trustee for Merry-Go-Round Enterprises Inc., which alleged that four banks improperly transferred about $10 million between accounts to cut the struggling retailer's debt to them before it filed for bankruptcy protection.U.S. Bankruptcy Judge E. Stephen Derby ruled that the trustee, Deborah H. Devan, had failed to prove that a reduction in the net amount owed to the banks from $61.3 million to $50.6 million within 90 days before the bankruptcy filing amounted to "set-offs" prohibited by federal law."

Rick Sovero made five of his team's six front-nine birdies and partner Andy Pataki made the one that counted the most, as they combined for a 7-under-par 64 and a record-tying 36-hole total 132 in the 11th annual two-man team championship of the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation yesterday. Pataki's 20-foot birdie putt at No. 12, the team's only back-nine deviation from par at Mount Pleasant Golf Course, turned out to be the winner. Jim Winner-Drew DeVan used the second-low round of the rainy afternoon for 68-65 - 133, where they were tied by Steve Thomas-Jason Raivel, 67-66 - 133. Prior to Pataki's long putt, all of the winners' birdie putts were from inside 10 feet.

Calvert Hall's Nick Williams went to the sideline after being leveled by Loyola's Ted Melanson, but he returned moments later to score the winning goal with two minutes left, producing a 10-9 victory that ended the No. 1 Dons' 11-game winning streak in boys lacrosse. In winning a contest that featured six ties, as many lead changes and a downpour in the fourth quarter, the host and No. 3 Cardinals (15-4, 9-4) earned the second seed behind Division I winner St. Mary's (11-5, 9-4) entering the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs.

At age 3, Devan James dressed for Halloween in his favorite outfit: a football uniform and a plastic helmet. Seventeen years later, he's still wearing football gear and scaring the heck out of Morgan State's opponents. James, a junior running back, has rushed for 947 yards and could break the Bears' single-season rushing record of 1,402 yards set last year by Chad Simpson, now with the Indianapolis Colts). Morgan (4-3) has five games left and hosts Delaware State at homecoming on Saturday at 1. Last week, James gained 219 yards - a career high - and scored twice in Morgan's 31-30 double-overtime victory over Howard.

"It has been a long, hard five years," said Panthers coach Brian Boles, who started coaching St. Frances in 2005. "I am so proud of our guys. We've followed the saying, 'Championships are won before the game is played.

You've got to read the rest of this story to find out what happens to the boy and his mud pony.''- Devan MarkowitzLisbon Elementary``My favorite book is 'Pinocchio.' It's about a woodcutter who made a puppet and one night the woodcutter saw a wishing star and made a wish that Pinocchio could be a real boy. The fairy came.

In Donald Hill-Eley's six seasons as coach, Morgan State has risen from college football purgatory to become a college football destination. "When I took the job, I'd call people and nobody wanted to come to Morgan State," he said. "Everybody wanted to play Morgan State because we weren't competitive." Thirty wins later, the Bears have bridged the gap between doormat and respectability. For that, Hill-Eley has been given a three-year contract with two one-year options by the university.
