One of the largest business expansions in Howard County's history and a key component of the revitalization efforts of the U.S. 1 corridor will be formally christened this week. Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream Holdings Inc. will celebrate Thursday the completion of a $210 million expansion of its North Laurel manufacturing plant in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to be attended by dignitaries and top executives of the Oakland, Calif.-based company. The project was announced almost two years ago but only after months of negotiations that included threats to relocate the facility, millions of dollars in taxpayer incentives and, in effect, the forced sale of adjacent property to accommodate the expansion.

It was a friendship that started with a headlock, not a handshake. When Harford Tech senior Brad Dreyer first met future teammate Mike Taylor at a wrestling practice six years ago, the two became instant adversaries. "I'll never forget, it was my first day of rec wrestling and he'd been wrestling for like five years," said Dreyer, The Sun's fourth-ranked 140-pounder. "I didn't know what I was doing, but I gave him a hard time when we were wrestling. I think he was a little angry, and he threw me in a headlock when I wasn't looking.

Carl Theodor Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc is, simply stated, one of the most striking, passionate and vivid films ever made, a study in the use of close-ups and in the filming of naked emotion that has lost none of its impact over the eight decades since its release. Seeing this amazing film in any incarnation is extraordinary enough, but Baltimore cinephiles should consider themselves blessed this weekend. Sunday at the Meyerhoff, Dreyer's stark masterpiece will be shown in a print that is reportedly as close as we can get nowadays to what the director originally had in mind (the original negative was destroyed in a fire, causing Dreyer to reconstruct the film using alternate takes; that version - which will be shown Sunday - was denounced by both the French and British, and subsequently altered)

Harford Tech junior Brad Dreyer had one thought on his mind before his 135-pound Harford County championship match against Fallston's Drew Beck. Then moments before he took the mat, Cobras coach Gary Siler gave him one more thing to ponder. "I remembered how I felt after I lost last year and I didn't want to feel that way again," said Dreyer, who lost to Beck in double overtime in last year's county championships. "Mr. Siler knew that if I won my match, we would probably win. He told me to put the nail in the coffin."

Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream Holdings Inc. is launching a $180 million expansion of its Laurel manufacturing plant that will more than triple its ice cream production capacity and create at least 300 jobs. The project, which will draw on millions of dollars in state and county economic assistance, will make Dreyer's the largest manufacturer in Howard County with more than 550 workers at a time when production-line jobs account for less than 8 percent of employment in Maryland and about 7 percent nationwide.

Talk about twists of fate. A stunning silent film portraying Joan of Arc's horrific trial and burning at the stake is released in 1928. Not long afterward, the original negative is lost in a warehouse fire, along with what are presumed to be the only copies. The director reconstructs the film using outtakes that survived. That painstakingly resurrected version also burns up in a warehouse fire. In 1981, an almost pristine print of the original is found - in the janitor's closet of a mental hospital in Norway.

Mack Lewnes had hoped for more aggressiveness from St. Mark's Kyle Skinner; in the back of his mind, the Mount St. Joseph sophomore feared the defending Delaware state champ would be conservative. "His game plan was to keep it close," said Lewnes, who, nevertheless earned a 1-0 decision - his second by a point over Skinner - for the 152-pound crown in last night's Mount Mat Madness Tournament at Goucher College Sports Center. "He never out-positioned me. I never felt like I lost control.
