I often get an "error message" on my computer, indicating that I have an "unresponsive program" that must close immediately. Afterward, I have the opportunity to send an "error report" before restarting my computer and getting back to whatever I was working on, which likely will cause another error in a matter of moments. When you send an error report, I believe it goes to Microsoft Corp. because a nice little box signed by Microsoft appears on my screen, thanking me for submitting the report.

The win gives the Panthers (11-0, 8-0 league) the upper hand in the race for the county title, which they shared with the Falcons (8-1, 7-1) last year.If the Panthers can remain atop the county's South Division, they would play the North winner for the title next month.

It was like a Baltimore version of the television program "Melrose Place." The setting was an apartment complex in Fells Point, complete with its own courtyard, just like the popular TV show. The characters were a group of young go-getters, most in their 20s. It was 1995. Erin Conroy, fresh out of the University of Delaware, moved in with former college classmates in August. That fall, Dirk Lueders II became the new guy on the block. He had just taken a job at Aberdeen Proving Ground and wanted to live somewhere "fun."

Talent can be found all over the field at Annapolis, but there is one area where it simply overflows.A quick look at the stat sheet provides the answer. Under the category "goals for," there's a number that is rather dazzling, 332. That's 16.6 goals per game for the No. 7 Panthers, who improved to 19-1 with Saturday's 15-6 win over No. 13 Liberty in the Class 3A-4A state semifinals.And that's precisely what No. 9 C. Milton Wright -- 16-1 after a 17-10 win over Parkville in the other semifinal -- must deal with first and foremost when it meets the Panthers in tonight's state final set for 8 p.m. at UMBC.
