Five minutes later, Devereux scored on a free kick from nearly 40 yards, then got a second goal in the 71st minute from 22 yards to lead the ninth-ranked Gladiators to a 4-1 victory over host South Carroll. "When I'm close, I think about it too much," Devereux said.

It just flows out of her like a concert pianist," said Cindy Devereux of her sister Terry's drawing talent, on display in the new mural they painted together for the day room at The Arc of Howard County. "It's just a doodle," said Terry Junggust. If it's a doodle, it's a doozy. The mural is 25 feet long and 5 feet tall; a striking abstract of geometric shapes, whorls, spirals and florals in colors that Devereux describes as "true, clear, bold and intense." The mural was a volunteer project of the two Glenwood sisters, who have owned a decorative painting company, "Urban Colors" for the past 15 years.
