St. Paul's girls lacrosse coach Brook Kuhl-McClelland has heard a lot of debate over the years about which has the better high school girls lacrosse, Maryland or New York. To settle those bragging rights on the field, she put together the Maryland-New York Challenge this weekend at St. Paul's. Saturday and Sunday, four of the top teams from Maryland will take on four from New York, including a No. 1 vs. No. 2 national showdown between McDonogh (8-0) and Garden City (6-0). McDonogh is ranked No. 1 this week in ESPN High School's Fab 50 while Garden City is ranked No. 2. Both teams boast winning streaks over 50 games - McDonogh, 59 and Garden City, 54. McDonogh's streak is the longest active girls lacrosse winning streak in the country.

An $8.5 billion merger creating North America's biggest dollar store chain could mean increased competition for mass discounters such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. but less choice for shoppers. In the Baltimore area and elsewhere, retail experts said, Dollar Tree Inc.'s planned purchase of Family Dollar Stores Inc., announced Monday, likely will lead to some store closings, though the companies have not identified any locations. Dollar Tree, which runs mostly suburban stores and sells a mix of consumables as well as items such as gifts, party goods and greeting cards for $1 or less, has about 55 stores in the Baltimore area.

Shortly after the final whistle in the Maryland-New York Challenge on Saturday, strong winds and heavy rain swept across the St. Paul's School for Girls' home field in Brooklandville. The storm that No. 1 McDonogh unleashed on Garden City in the final game of the eight-team event may have been even more impressive that what Mother Nature provided. In a battle of unbeatens, the Eagles scored the game's first four goals, weathered a 5-2 run by the Trojans and blew away the six-time defending New York Class B state champs, 20-9.

A high school boys lacrosse game that was supposed to be a warm-up act for the two college games that followed played more like a main event at the seventh annual Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday. Justin Guterding scored or assisted on the first four goals by Garden City (N.Y.) and a second-half rally by No. 5 Loyola fell short as the Trojans won, 6-5. "We let some hasty decisions and some rushed play let them get a lot of possessions," Loyola coach Jack Crawford said.

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. -- It is a Saturday afternoon in early November, and a man, a deliberate and rational man, sits at his kitchen table and writes a letter. The words come easily, the transcription of thoughts honed for weeks. "You don't know me, but I work for the Port Authority, and, like you, I live in Garden City. I didn't know your wife, but I saw her on the train ... "There is a strange sense of connection I feel ... and I can't escape that. " There had been so much more to say, it seemed, several weeks earlier, on the day the deaths of strangers had overwhelmed him, and, unexpectedly, her death in particular.

Ocean City, can you handle all of this love? Today, citing the relatively low cost of living on the shore, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate named Ocean City  "America's Most Affordable Fun City. " "There are two or three ultra-cool cities that everyone wants to live in,” says Sherry Chris, chief executive of BHG Real Estate. “The problem is it's very expensive to live in those cities, so that eliminates them as a possibility for many people.” The median price of a home in Ocean City is $243,600, just a tad above the median for the state.

Baltimore firefighters were investigating the cause of a carbon monoxide leak Friday that prompted the evacuation of 48 people — 36 children and 12 adults — at the Pleasant View Gardens Child Care Center. Fire union officials initially described it as a "mass casualty carbon monoxide incident" and said the victims were being hospitalized, but reports from the scene indicated that those affected were being evaluated outside the building in the 1100 block of E. Fayette St. and no one appeared to be showing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.

More greens. Fewer cherry tomatoes. Those are the plans for the second season of Baltimore's City Hall garden, which produced more than 2,000 pounds of fresh produce last year for Our Daily Bread, the city's largest soup kitchen. "We're catering to what Our Daily Bread is requesting," said Bill Vondrasek, chief horticulturalist for the Department of Recreation and Parks, which helps care for the gardens. "They specifically told us what they will eat more of and what they didn't each much of," he said.

Stephanie Parente wasn't the kind of student who would blow off a college chemistry exam. The 19-year-old Loyola sophomore and speech pathology major was far too studious for that, her friends said. After she didn't show up for class Monday, college officials called the Sheraton hotel in Towson, where her family was staying on a visit from Long Island, N.Y. There, inside a locked room about 3 p.m. Monday, a hotel employee found the bodies of Stephanie Parente, her 11-year-old sister, Catherine, and their parents, William, 59, and Betty, 58. They were not shot or stabbed, and one of the parents was likely responsible for the murder-suicide, Cpl. Michael Hill, a Baltimore County police spokesman, said Tuesday.
