Bill Gant no longer carries rolls of quarters to pay for the 50-cents-an-hour metered parking in downtown Bel Air. Instead, he carries a debit card for use with digitized meters that the town debuted this month. The Bond/Thomas Street parking lot has 17 new digitized parking meters. Designed for convenience, the new black meters accept nickels, dimes, silver dollars and quarters. But the devices also take the Smartcard, which works like a debit card that can hold up to $100. "I was putting quarters in the meter for 20 years," Gant said after sliding his card into a meter when leaving recently.

California Angels closer Lee Smith has been doing it in California and now Ron Gant is doing it in Cincinnati.Doing what? Making the Orioles front office look bad. That's what.Gant, who was coveted by Orioles owner Peter Angelos last year but ended up signing with the Cincinnati Reds while he was recovering from a badly broken leg, has six home runs -- including one yesterday against the Braves -- and 17 RBIs, numbers that would lead the Orioles in both departments.Of course, Gant isn't the only one in Cincinnati who has enjoyed a change of fortune.

When the Cincinnati Reds signed injured outfielder Ron Gant, Orioles owner Peter Angelos left the distinct impression that he was upset with the "baseball people" in his front office.Apparently, he has since come to grips with the fact that baseball isn't always played on a level field. Just as the foul lines are often tilted toward fair territory, the action away from the action is sometimes unbalanced.Angelos has admitted to some frustration over not being able to sign Gant, whose career remains in jeopardy after a winter dirt-bike accident.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Orioles general manager Roland Hemond expressed interest in Ron Gant to Eric Goldschmidt, the injured outfielder's agent, but Hemond said he does not expect to speak again with Goldschmidt for several weeks.Gant, released in spring training by the Atlanta Braves, suffered a fractured right leg in a February motocross accident two days after he signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract. By releasing Gant, the Braves were responsible for $945,000 of the contract."We just made contact to let them know we are interested in being kept posted on his progress," Hemond said.

Ever wonder what Christmas is like in the Angelos household?"So you've got three cars," Peter Piper might say. "Here's a fourth!"Take the Orioles.They've got three starting outfielders.And now Angelos is proposing a fourth.Ron Gant is coming off a broken right leg. He probably would cost $3 million for half a season. And he likely would force the benching of Mike Devereaux -- the Orioles' $3.375 million center fielder -- against right-handed pitching.Angelos wants him anyway.The Orioles are 21-10 for the first time since 1970, and Angelos wants him. Jeffrey Hammonds likely will be sidelined for only seven to 10 days, and Angelos wants him. Camden Yards will be packed regardless, and Angelos wants him.What an owner.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Depending on who's telling the story, either Kent Hrbek has been watching too much professional wrestling or Ron Gant is not telling the whole truth.Hrbek appeared to lift Gant off of first base in the third inning of last night's second game of the World Series, but umpire Drew Coble ruled that the Atlanta Braves outfielder fell off all by himself.The play turned out to be a pick-me-up for the Minnesota Twins, who escaped from a first-and-third jam and went on to score a dramatic 3-2 victory at the Metrodome.

DOVER, Del. -- Move over, Dale Earnhardt, Davey Allison and Rusty Wallace.Harry "Life Begins at 51" Gant is on the prowl on the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit.Gant isn't making a comeback. He never left. He just hadn't won a lot of races in 19 years. Then, two weeks ago, he started a surge of three consecutive Winston Cup victories.A victory in the Southern 500 in Darlington, S.C., on Sept. 1 again made him the oldest driver to win a Winston Cup race. Before that, though, Gant was 3-for-159 in his latest starts and had won only 11 Winston Cup races in 19 years.

The Coppin State men's basketball team appeared en route to a rout in the first half of last night's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game against Howard. The Eagles had little trouble at either end and took a 19-point lead after 11 minutes. But that's when Coppin State seemed to lose momentum. Howard made 12 three-pointers to make the game closer, and the Eagles needed Darryl Proctor's 22 points and 10 rebounds to pull out a 75-66 victory at the Coppin Center. The win helped first-place Coppin State (11-12, 11-3 MEAC)

For months after her teen-age daughter died in a car accident at East Oliver Street and Broadway last July, Gina Gant couldn't bring herself to go near the intersection. Her daughter, Tiffany Gant, had just celebrated her 18th birthday when the car she was riding in collided with a police cruiser. The Dunbar High School honors graduate had planned to attend Coppin State College and become a criminal defense attorney. But in November, something else happened at the intersection that helped to ease her mother's pain a bit. A bright red-and-white street sign proclaiming "Tiffany Gant Way" went up, marking the corner in her daughter's memory.

(he finished second), Gant won six races in a row overall, including two Busch Grand National races.He went on to stretch his Grand National streak to three in a row with his Oct. 5 victory at Charlotte, N.C.

If the Orioles are serious about pursuing free agent outfielder Ron Gant and San Diego right-hander Andy Benes, there's a word of advice that should be heeded.Caution.Whether or not the Orioles can get either or both players depends on two things: How deep does owner Peter Angelos want to go into his already lightened wallet and how deep into the minor-league system can the organization go hocking the future?But the biggest question of all is how much of a dividend, even on a short-term investment, could the Orioles expect?

Paul Sheppard, commander of the police traffic unit.
