NEWS THAT W. R. Grace & Co. will move its corporate headquarters to Columbia was an exclamation point to the first state of the county address by Howard County Executive James N. Robey.The chemical company's move involves only about 40 jobs. But the decision to leave the Sun Belt mecca of Boca Raton, Fla., is strong commentary on Howard County's attractiveness to businesses looking for a home.Twelve companies made Howard County their corporate headquarters in 1998. The Howard County Economic Development Authority listed 91 new or expanded businesses last year.

Justin Black has become one of the most electrifying players in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference this season with his ability to take over a game. Midway through the second half against Coppin State on Wednesday night, he grabbed a loose ball and threw a bounce pass between several defenders to Shaquille Duncan who converted an easy layup that gave Morgan State all the momentum it would need. After suffering through a lackluster first half, Black came alive and finished with 22 points, leading the Bears to a 78-69 victory before an announced 4,500 at a frenzied Hill Field House.

The saying “silence is golden” usually doesn't apply to Terrell Suggs, whose colorful personality makes him one of the most sought-after media requests in the locker room. But after compiling six sacks in his first seven games, the Ravens outside linebacker had gone three contests without a sack. That all changed on Thanksgiving night when he tied a career best by sacking quarterback Alex Smith three times in the Ravens' 16-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Suggs moved into a three-way tie for seventh in the NFL with New Enbgland Patriots defensive end Andre Carter and Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley with nine sacks this season.

"What Women Want" by Patricia Ireland. Dutton. 323 pages. $23.95.Midway through her personal account of the women's rights movement, Patricia Ireland, president of the National Organization for Women, reveals she often fears she's preaching to the converted. That fear is well-founded.Her book is full of the kind of sweeping generalizations that will turn the anything-but-die-hard-fans away. Those who get passed her simplistic arguments and liberal use of the exclamation point - techniques that make a reader feel more like a rally attendant than a confidant - will find occasional moments of insight.

Shadows stir; the season shifts. As I sit in the first winter sunshine, reading the morning papers, the print rises up, coldly poised, perfected in a way that the writing I am next to read is not. In stacks of student essays, language flies across the open page as wildly as the last brown leaves across the campus quad. Pens in hand, the faculty gear up to rake the prose about, trimming a sentence here, planting commas there, carting off redundancy.As winter chill sets in, I look at warm young faces and wish it were the semi-colon they yearned to learn.

United an improbable 3-2, come-from-behind victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy in MLS Cup '96 at Foxboro Stadium."If we wanted an exclamation point on our first season," Major League Soccer commissioner Doug Logan said, "we couldn't have asked for a better one."

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Buzz: Newton's ticket to New York was already punched several weeks ago, but his performance against Alabama in the Iron Bowl on Friday might have sealed the deal for becoming the first Auburn player to win the Heisman since Bo Jackson in 1985. The junior rallied the Tigers from a 24-0 deficit with 216 yards through the air and four total touchdowns. Up next: SEC title game vs. South Carolina at Atlanta, Saturday.

Kristin Baxivanos literally ran into trouble late in the 100-meter hurdles at the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference track and field meet. The Fallston senior held the lead, but she hit the top of the eighth hurdle instead of clearing it. Baxivanos staggered and stumbled and nearly fell before regaining her balance and winning the race. "A lot of kids less experienced would have fallen and gone down," Fallston girls coach Jimmy Grant said. "That's why she's so good." It also typifies the kind of senior season Baxivanos has had. After making steady improvement in her first three years, Baxivanos has blossomed into one of the area's top hurdlers and sprinters.

It was the best photojournalism experience of my life and I have Eddie Adams to thank for it. Famous for his Pulitzer Prize-winning 1968 photograph of a South Vietnamese official's street execution of a Viet Cong prisoner, Adams had a long and decorated photography career. He was highly respected within the industry for his talent, work ethic and dedication to perfection. Last Sunday, at age 71, he died of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). In 1988, at his Jeffersonville farm in the picturesque mountains of New York, Adams founded The Eddie Adams Workshop, nicknamed "Barnstorm" for the building he converted into a lecture hall and offices.

WASHINGTON -- I talked recently with Professor Nancy Koehn of the Harvard Business School. She is a historian of business, writing a book about at least three industrial revolutions. A fourth, which should interest you, may arrive by the time she finishes dealing with the first three.The first business revolution, says Ms. Koehn, lasted roughly from 1760 to 1820. It was centered in northwest England, the Silicon Valley of the 18th century. The central new product was the old kind of software, textiles, mostly cotton.

In validating their preseason billing as title contenders, the Ravens followed a familiar script: a swarming defense and a staggering running attack. What they could have done without was the theatrics. The Ravens' 30-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers before 69,859 at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday was cluttered with embarrassing penalties and painful injuries. Moments after recording their largest margin of victory in this fierce AFC North rivalry, the Ravens (1-1) could only scratch their heads.

SHAKESPEARE conjectured that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but he might have thought differently if a technology company had been put in charge of the naming. Then a rose might be known as a rOHz! or ARROWmatic or even 1ThorneeBud. Technology companies go to unusual lengths to find names for themselves, even if it means throwing all convention - and punctuation - to the wind. Companies in the sector are known to jam words together and put capitals in odd places (like SafeNet Inc. in Belcamp)
