Buying a diamond ring is always a costly expense. Claiming to lose it — twice — came at an even steeper price for Colby White, chief financial officer for Prince George's County public schools. The Maryland Insurance Administration has ruled White and his wife, Keisha, who works as an internal auditor for the school system, committed insurance fraud by filing a claim for a lost diamond ring that another insurer had already paid $16,313 to replace months earlier. The agency said the couple "knowingly violated" Maryland insurance law in filing two claims for the same loss.

Diamonds and the Maryland men's soccer team have a lot in common. As coach Sasho Cirovski explains, his team has been forged by pressure, preparation and expectations. Cirovski doesn't compare Maryland to the jewel for just those three reasons, however, but also because he expects his team's final product to be tough and high-quality. “We've worked hard to make ourselves the biggest bull's-eye in college soccer,” he said Tuesday as his team prepared for today's NCAA College Cup semifinal against Georgetown in Hoover, Ala. “I don't mind putting pressure on our team and our players, because we feel that that makes us better.

Spring, one of the strongest sales periods for diamonds, is in full bloom.The average price paid for a diamond engagement ring in 1992 is just over $1,500, a level that's remained fairly constant the past couple of years. Yet the average size of that diamond is now one to one-and-a-half carats. That's smaller than a stone bought for that same average price several years ago, an indication of a modest rise in cost per carat.What's really surprising, however, is that the value of diamonds hasn't actually declined during recession, since demand has been low."

In the spring, young couples' thoughts turn to diamond engagement rings. Beyond the obvious romance, knowing what you're buying is an important consideration.The average amount spent on an engagement ring is around $1,600, a 12 percent increase from a year ago, according to the Diamond Information Center. More than 1.6 million of them will be bought in this country in 1994, proof that romantic and financial commitment still go hand in hand.Shaking off a recessionary slump, the diamond industry has lately enjoyed a period of strong sales in this country.

Chris Davis, who was batting .193 in 99 games through Sunday, didn't start Monday against New York Yankees left-hander Chris Capuano. But after third baseman Manny Machado injured his right leg during an at-bat in the bottom of the third inning, Davis entered as a defensive replacement at third base to start the top of the fourth. The left-handed-hitting Davis' struggles this season have been well-documented, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he also wanted to get Steve Pearce a start.

Less than three weeks ago, Andrew Spinnenweber struck out 13 Sherwood batters and carried Chesapeake-AA to a Class 4A state championship. It was the best moment of his life. Now, Spinnenweber, who will pitch at a preparatory school in New Mexico next year, can add another accolade to a steadily growing list: he was one of 30 players selected to play in the Brooks Robinson Senior High School All-Star Game this Sunday at Camden Yards. "It's going to be a lot of fun," Spinnenweber said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Harford Community College officials may have come to a reasonable usage fee accommodation with the recreation leagues that play on the baseball and softball diamonds that serve as the Route 22 front yard of the college, but underlying problems exposed by the ham-handed proposal to increase the fees do not appear to have been addressed. On the subject of the fees, the college initially announced the per game cost to play on the crown jewel of the complex, an artificial turf diamond, was going from $100 to $600, and the charge for the other well-groomed fields from $100 to $200.

As I write this, I'm still trying to process the emotional promo I just witnessed for the Cory Monteith tribute episode coming next week. More about that later. Tonight we were treated to, in my humble opinion, a much better “part two” of the two-part season premiere of "Glee. " Those epic "Glee" one-liners returned in full force and made me actually belly laugh on more than one occasion. We finish out this two-part Beatles premiere with Mr. Schue introducing New Directions to the second part of the Beatles assignment; "When the Beatles went from mop-top to experimental.” The kids let us know that prom king and queen nominations are going to be announced shortly, with both Tina and Sam express their longing for one. Nominations are revealed and while Tina is in, Sam isn't.

Blair Wheeler had fished only a few times in her life when she decided to rent a charter boat off Tracys Landing near Deale in late July to celebrate the respective birthdays of her husband and brother. It was the first time Wheeler had gone fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. It probably won't be the last. Wheeler, a 25-year-old from Herndon, Va., who works as a television news producer in Washington, became the first person to win the Diamond Jim fishing contest's $25,000 grand prize in the nine years since the Maryland Department of Natural Resources revived it as part of the agency's Maryland Fishing Challenge.

The vigil for Diamond Williams, the 16-year-old whom everyone called an angel, began with Pastor Michael Trotter Jr. instructing everyone to hug the person next to them, stranger or friend. "You don't know what they're going through," Trotter said as more than 100 people — Diamond's family, teenage friends, neighbors and teachers — gathered in somber silence in a parking lot at Wabash Avenue and Liberty Heights Avenue Thursday evening. Diamond was found by her father in a stairwell near that lot just after midnight Friday, her throat deeply cut. She would die shortly after being taken to a hospital.
