Salsa was everywhere inside Port Discovery. It could be found on the buffet table, along with other Mexican food like empanadas, quesadillas, guacamole and Spanish rice. Salsa was also all over the makeshift dance floor set up in the children's museum entrance hall, as teachers Grace Gonzales and Antonio Delgado instructed folks in that style of Latin dancing.

Patterson High will take the place of Broadneck as No. 4 Lake Clifton's opponent in the 5 p.m. boys basketball matchup of tomorrow's Fuel Fund Classic at the Baltimore Arena. The game is the makeup for the Feb. 11 league game which was postponed because Baltimore City schools were closed because of inclement weather. No. 11 Broadneck was forced to pull out of the tournament because it would have given the Bruins, who play three Anne Arundel County league games this week, a fourth game if they were to play Lake Clifton.

"We haven't been able to garner the funds that we were hoping to get." BGE blames it on a misunderstanding by the Fuel Fund.
