NEW YORK -- Where does American TV's most beautiful, conniving, and frequently married woman turn for financial advice?If you are Erica Kane, the ice queen of the daytime soap "All My Children," you go to the same billionaire who advises anyone who is anyone really special: the "Omaha Oracle," Warren Buffett, temporary chief executive of Salomon Bros. Inc. and major shareholder in "All My Children's" broadcaster, Capital Cities/ABC.Mr. Buffett took a break yesterday from the vexing difficulty of solving Salomon's problems -- it is at the core of an industrywide scandal -- to tape a segment of "All My Children," the long-running tale of love, loss, infidelity and, well, all the rest.

North Carroll senior sweeper Erica Danton is so strong at her position that she has received more than her share of recognition even though she plays defense. Danton and the Panthers' defense have 10 shutouts and have allowed just five goals in a 12-2 season. What's it like being a defensive star on a highly regarded team such as North Carroll? It feels very exciting. I really enjoy it, and it gives me momentum to keep going and practicing. I feel like a role model to the other players.

When Erica Dahlke was a sophomore at Perry Hall High School, a boy in her chemistry class kept sabotaging her experiments, sometimes to the point where she had to redo them. "At times I thought it was funny," she says, "and other times I was ready to rip his head off." But wisecracking Bryon Epple, a junior, was also charming, and he and Erica had mutual friends and both played soccer and volleyball. After a while, they became friends. As their friendship grew, they were welcomed into one another's homes and often spent time with each other's families.

EMMITSBURG -- Virtually every time Erica Herbert played in a college basketball game anywhere in Maryland, her younger brother, Aaron, was in the crowd to cheer her on."I came to almost every home game the Mount played or whenever they were at Loyola or UMBC," Aaron said yesterday. "I followed her all the way because my game was molded by her. She really influenced me."So, his sister will have a spiritual role Friday when Herbert starts at point guard for Mount St. Mary's against second-ranked Michigan State in the opening round of the NCAA Midwest Regional in Milwaukee.
