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.

A nightclub insurance mogul charged with fraud will remain detained after prosecutors alleged that bomb-making equipment and musings on killing discovered after his indictment — along with notes about disappearing in Croatia — made him too risky to release. The Wednesday hearing in federal court in Baltimore marked Jeffrey B. Cohen's first appearance since the allegations of an apparent plot to attack a Delaware judge and another elected official became public in an unsealed search warrant.

"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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Most of the Orioles took the winter off. They worked on their golf swings. They bought new cars. They did whatever it is that 25-year-olds do when they earn more than 25 schoolteachers put together and don't have to get up until noon.But what did Jack Voigt, the hardest-working man in show business, do on his winter vacation?Played ball. Fought a batting slump. Got ripped in the papers. Worried about dodging election-related violence in Venezuela. Oh, and got shaken awake one night by an earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale.

PHILADELPHIA - Over the course of eight years bookended by Olympic gold medals in Athens, Ga., and Athens, Greece, the most important question facing the U.S. women's soccer team was usually "What's next?" That question has been replaced by "What now?" With no major tournaments scheduled for the next two years, no professional league to keep newer players in the public eye and some entrenched personalities ending or winding down their careers, the team that bushwhacked its way into mainstream sports consciousness wants to keep from getting lost in the jungle of the marketplace.
