It was celebration time at the Knights of Columbus in Perry Hall last week when more than 60 people gathered to roast their good friend George Stover, an award-winning news photographer for WMAR-TV. Stover's friends celebrated his 40th in style -- story-telling style.Susan White Bowden told funny stories about the birthday boy, including the time she had to interview Rock Hudson. She was mooning over Hudson's good looks and Hudson only had eyes for George!Good-natured teasing also came from Jack Bowden, Sandy and Tony Pagnotti, Toba and Andy Barth, Elaine and Jack Dawson and WPOC's evening deejay Diane Lyn.Others at the party were Sheila and Craig Silverstein, she's with WPOC and he's a lumber company exec; Norm Vogel, Channel 13 cameraman; Harold Glaser, attorney; and Channel 2's Mark Vernarelli.

I WENT TO the Ripken Minor League Experience expecting to see the Iron Man, and I ended up seeing two of them. Cal Ripken was there, of course. He needs no introduction. But if somebody had told me that diminutive Del. Sandy Rosenberg, a Democrat from Baltimore, would catch five games in four days, well, I might have thought twice about showing up with my sorry work ethic. Rosenberg, 54, is something of a fantasy camp junkie, enough so that he unabashedly appeared in a skit at the Legislative Follies in Annapolis last month in his Orioles jersey, so I wasn't surprised to see him on the bus to Staten Island on Wednesday night.

Edith Howard-Henry delights in the kind of schedule that can either pump you up or poop you out: Formally retired from a career of teaching high school Spanish and French at Western High School, she helps chase after three young grandchildren, teaches part time at the New Community College of Baltimore, works on a host of volunteer committees, serves as an elder at Trinity Presbyterian Church, cooks gourmet, fat-free meals and still finds time to grow prize-winning...

From time to time people ask if it bothers me that I'm bald, and I can honestly say that it does not. Not in the least. I had bad haircuts when I had hair, and no great success with the opposite sex. It was only after I lost my hair that things started happening for me. Eventually, I was even able to get married and have children.Oddly, nobody ever asks how I feel about being short, possibly because it is perceived that there is no remedy for shortness, no equivalent of toupees or hair weaves, no Height Club for Men.The fact is, I hate being short and would tell anyone who asked.

By almost any measure - exposure, esteem, money - writing for comic books is a big step down for authors who are enjoying success in TV, films or fiction. But try telling that to the big-name scribes - including horror-meister Stephen King, Joss Whedon (creator of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and writer/director Reggie Hudlin (House Party), now head of entertainment at BET - who are taking the plunge into the pulpy world of muscle-bound superheroes. They all think they've died and gone to heaven.

Happy 187th, Mr. Lincoln.* "The American Experience" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- "The Wright Stuff" is a quiet look at Wilbur and Orville Wright, who took time from their jobs making bicycles to invent the airplane. Not the best or most enthralling "American Experience," it's still interesting stuff. PBS.* "Partners" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In a sweeps week coup that can't be making NBC happy, Jennifer Aniston of "Friends" shows up as a new girlfriend who asks Bob (Jon Cryer)

"I'm so happy my husband doesn't know who I am," Carolyn Williams said. No, she's not a misbehaving housewife on some tacky TV show. Williams was attributing her fresh rush of cheer to her participation in the inaugural BSO Academy, which wrapped up an intensive week of activities for adult amateur musicians with a "donor appreciation concert" and party on Saturday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Nearly 50 people from around the region paid up to $1,650 for this new community outreach venture by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a camp for grownups who wanted to take their musical interests to a different level.

EMMITSBURG -- We are ready for the worst. People who had been through it before said it would be tough. Grueling. We smile, innocently. And after the first session of Wes Unseld's/Gatorade Fantasy Camp, we pooh-pooh, "Piece of cake!"THE ORDEAL: The 35 campers -- 33 men and two women -- ardivided into four teams as Unseld, the Washington Bullets coach, thanks all for signing up, explaining, "I have to thank you, because I don't have any idea why anybody would want to do this."No sooner is the welcoming address over when we are stretching and knocking off two laps around Knott Arena on the Mount St. Mary's campus.
