It was important to look your best. After all, The Beatles were in town. Today, it's hard to believe such things were important. But for four 15-year-old girls from Highlandtown, preparing to head into downtown Baltimore for a rock concert, such matters were vital. Who knew what could happen? "In my mind, I thought for sure that Paul's gonna love me, he's gonna see me - in my little-girl fantasies, he'll know that eventually he'll marry me," explains Judy Comotto, now 65 and recently retired from running the continuing education program at Roland Park Country School , then 15 and, as Judy Troch , a star-struck teen totally in love with The Beatles.

LOS ANGELES -- "Fab Four!" was the ringing headline splashed across the top of a newspaper hanging in the locker of Atlanta Braves left-hander Kent Mercker, who is certainly not one of the four -- not with guys like Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Steve Avery and Greg Maddux around -- and until last night he wasn't all that "fab" either.In five years with the Braves he'd won all of 15 games.But the 26-year-old Mercker out-Fabbed the other Four, big time, pitching a no-hit, no-run game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning, 6-0, before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 36,546 that got on his side from the seventh inning on.Mercker had come close a couple of times before -- once, in 1991, he even shared in a Braves' no-hitter -- but this time it was his all the way."

As freshmen two years ago, the Michigan Wolverines shocked the world. But when the college basketball season ended that night at the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis, all the record books showed was a 20-point loss to Duke in the NCAA final.As sophomores last season, they turned on the churl. But when the season ended that night against North Carolina at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, all anyone wanted to talk about was why Chris Webber called time out.They are now juniors. Webber is gone.

NEW ORLEANS -- When it was assembled, many called this class of recruits the best in school history, maybe even the best ever. There was a dominating big man. A terrific point guard. A small forward who could jump through the roof and a big forward with arms that went on forever. And don't forget the blue-collar guy from Jersey.No, not Michigan's Fab Five.It was North Carolina's pre-Fab Five. They came to Chapel Hill three seasons ago and they were at the Louisiana Superdome last night -- minus one -- winning the national championship with a 77-71 victory over Michigan.

He was standing at center court, smiling and doing a little dance -- nothing flashy -- when they wheeled out the ladder for the net-cutting ceremony. Suddenly, Chris Webber started running toward the Kingdome locker room, and for a while it seemed he would miss this moment.But within minutes he was back, camcorder in hand and a wide grin on his face as he recorded the mo- ment. For the first time in a long time, basketball was fun again for Webber and the Fab Five."After the game someone told me, 'It looks like you're having fun now,' " Webber said, after Michigan had defeated Temple, 77-72, to win the West Regional final.

The upstate New Yorker who lent his "FAB 5" vanity plate to the producers of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy would like a makeover of his original deal with the hit television series. "When I see what a success the show is, I feel hoodwinked," says Frank Anthony Benicase, a 65-year-old IBM retiree in Kingston. Behind Benicase's Queer Eye quibble is nothing more fabulous than the vanity registration on his 1996 maroon Buick Regal. Twenty years ago, Benicase sought the letters FAB - his initials - for his license plate.

Maybe Steve Fisher signed the wrong number of recruits. Maybe the Michigan basketball coach should have brought only two blue-chippers -- three tops -- to Ann Arbor this year.Why did he have to sign five, just as he did four years ago? And why did they all have to be some kind of high school All-American, including the near-consensus No. 1 player in the country?"I was looking for six guys," Fisher said last week. "You know something? There isn't any talk about this in the local media. They aren't the Fab anything.

DALLAS -- Consider the bright side: At least the Terps don't have to walk the plank against Arkansas tomorrow in front of a screaming crowd of Hog-calling fans wearing snout heads.Considering the advantage in size, depth and experience the intimidating Razorbacks would have had, it's just as well that Michigan's older, wiser Fab (Almost) Five takes on the task of trying to ruin President Clinton's day when he shows up tomorrow to wooooo, pig sooie.Not that there was ever any doubt last night at Reunion Arena that Michigan was more deserving of the opportunity.

The melody is instantly familiar but the other sounds are not - horns boldly announce their arrival, the patient tempo crawls along and the voice is more Maryland than Liverpool. When the plea to stay kicks in - "Believe me when I beg you, don't ever leave me alone," he sings - the song's identity becomes clear. It's "Oh! Darling," the Lennon/McCartney classic, but this bouncing version comes courtesy of Yellow Dubmarine, a Rockville eight-piece that plays reggae versions of Beatles songs.

Centuries collide at The Obladi hotel on Main Street, but instead of an explosion, a harmonic convergence was created by owners T. Garland and Zan Wilson.   What they made was a little piece of heaven. “We were going with the 1968 Beatles in India vibe,” says Wilson, pointing out the mural of henna-painted hands in the lobby and a sofa covered in wasabi-colored leather. Yes, their hotel is named after Beatles song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” and, yes, the faces of George, John, Paul and Ringo grace the walls over fireplaces in each of the four guest rooms.

The idea, of course, is for Sunday not to be the last time this group of linebackers plays together for the Ravens. At best, the Ravens figure out a way to keep Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott here, to team up with Jarret Johnson and retain the best linebacking unit in the NFL. No disrespect intended to the linebackers for their coming opponent, of course. The worst-case scenario, however, is that they already have taken the field together for the last time. If Suggs' sprained right shoulder keeps him out of the AFC championship game in Pittsburgh, then their immediate future depends on the strategic brilliance of Rex Ryan and their own constantly tested resourcefulness and resilience.

BOSTON - A few years ago, I faced one of those ethical quandaries that don't turn up in journalism class. My birthday was announced in the newspaper date book. This was startling enough except for the fact that the paper had lopped about three years off the actual number. What's a good journalist, let alone a good feminist, to do? Did I have a moral obligation to write a correction? Was it ethical to live with the error of their ways? I never had to resolve this dilemma because apparently some college classmate outed me. This brings me to the number of candles that now grace the cake of my life: 64. By any normal account, this is a thoroughly unremarkable birthday.

They had to reinvent themselves to taste real success: multi-platinum sales and a Grammy Award. It took nearly 10 years, but the guys of Maroon 5 have finally arrived. The pop band's album Songs About Jane hit the streets in June 2002. But you probably didn't hear it then because the record really didn't take off until early last year, spurred by the sudden success of the singles "Harder to Breathe" and "This Love." "We did 250 shows a year before the album exploded," says lead singer-guitarist Adam Levine, who's calling from Los Angeles.

DALLAS -- "I wasn't just blowing smoke all week," Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams was saying late Friday night, walking briskly through a corridor at Reunion Arena on his way to the team bus. "I really thought we had a chance to win."Well, his Terps did have a chance to beat Michigan in the Midwest Regional semifinals. Forget that they were outscored 38-18 in one stretch and trailed by as many as 21 points in the second half. Michigan was bored, foul-prone, sloppy and beatable.The Terps couldn't take advantage because they shot just 36 percent from the field and a devastating 53 percent from the free-throw line.

Readers sometimes complain that newspapers only report the bad, never the good; that people who work hard for their communities and excel at work or in school don't make headlines because they aren't exciting enough. As a matter of fact, they do. This week, five Anne Arundel County residents made news for their extraordinary talent and contributions:* Meredith Reffner, 17, an Old Mill High graduate, was honored by President Clinton as a Presidential Scholar of the Arts at the White House Wednesday.

Call them 2003's lifestyle newsmakers. Not President Bush, but Dr. Atkins. Not Wall Street, but wet basements. Not aquaporins, but picture phones. These are the people, places and things that -- for better or worse -- caught our attention this past year. They were emblematic of the widely differing subjects that fall under the catch-all "lifestyle": fashion, interior design, relationships, health, fitness, food and nutrition. We don't pretend this is the year-ending list to end all year-enders.
