Approaching Baltimore from the south, travelers come upon the Oz-like vision of the gleaming new ballyard. Visitors to Howard County's Columbia or Baltimore County's town center at Owings Mills are met by creative corporate structures. And the first impression Harford County will offer people in several months will be. . . a Wal-Mart.Wal-Mart is a fine place to shop. It's being built where the zoning allows for it and where the landholder has every right to put it. But it does make us wonder whether residents knew what they were doing a couple of years ago when they voted by a 3-2 margin to reject re-zoning of the Wal-Mart tract at Interstate 95 and Route 24.At the time, growth was a particularly dirty word in Harford.

This week, millions of young people head to college and universities, aiming for a four-year liberal arts degree. They assume that degree is the only gateway to the American middle class. It shouldn't be. For one thing, a four-year liberal arts degree is hugely expensive. Too many young people graduate laden with debts that take years if not decades to pay off. And too many of them can't find good jobs when they graduate, in any event. So they have to settle for jobs that don't require four years of college.

A popular argument against expanding the Anne Arundel County jail on Jennifer Road, along U.S. 50-301 near Annapolis, was that it would ruin the gateway to the state capital. Indeed, it might have, but U.S. 50 has never truly been the gateway to Annapolis; that honor has always belonged to Rowe Boulevard.This mile-long straightaway, which passes over small bridges and pretty inlets and leads straight to the steps of the State House, has the potential to be a greater asset to the city and the state than it is already.

Doug Wojcik took a moment Thursday to once again size up Baltimore Arena - the musty throwback of a building he played in as Navy point guard alongside David Robinson 27 years ago - and imagine the weekend's possibilities. The College of Charleston team Wojcik coaches is seeded sixth in the four-day Colonial Athletic Association tournament, which begins Friday night with the play-in game between Hofstra and UNC Wilmington. Could he even imagine the possibility of Cougars fans rushing onto the newly refinished court Monday night to celebrate a championship victory - and the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament that comes with it?

SAN DIEGO - Ted Waitt, the colorful founder of Gateway Inc. of Irvine, Calif., said yesterday that he is retiring as chairman of the No. 3 U.S. personal computer company. Waitt started Gateway in an Iowa farmhouse with a three-page business plan and a $10,000 loan he got after persuading his grandmother to co-sign it. In the 20 years since, Waitt, 42, has watched it grow into a Fortune 500 company, implode amid business missteps and relentless competition from Dell Inc. and others, and then skittishly try to rebuild itself again.

For months, motorists traveling near the intersection of Routes 175 and 108 have watched as vast amounts of earth were cleared, graded and moved. But that was just a precursor to the construction of a sprawling upscale residential and retail complex that will be one of the last major developments of Columbia's New Town. The county Planning Board has approved a site development plan for a one-story, six-unit retail structure at the site, the forerunner of Gateway Overlook, a 123-acre development.

This week, a commercial "freighter" rocket that began its journey into space last Wednesday about 35 miles south of Ocean City is due to dock with the International Space Station, delivering 1,300 pounds of cargo. It will eventually be loaded up with trash and sent on its way to burn up on atmospheric re-entry over the South Pacific. Cygnus isn't the first unmanned rocket to be launched out of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va., which has been in the research rocket business since World War II. But it may be among the most highly anticipated.

They were sprawled on their backs all over the floor, holding their stomachs and emitting a chorus of deep wails and moans. It could have been mistaken for a mass outbreak of food poisoning, but these kids were merely going through vocal exercises, learning the mechanics of proper breath intake and exhalation - part of the daily routine at Camp Hippodrome , held each summer at the historic Hippodrome Theatre. The camp, now in its sixth year, is one of several educational projects sponsored by the Hippodrome Foundation Inc.

For years, the vacant Columbus School on a busy corner of East North Avenue appeared to be nothing more than a giant planter. Leafy tree branches stuck out over the top of the historic red-brick walls, making it seem like the school's only future inhabitants would be squirrels and birds. But Kevin Bell and Michael Barland saw more. They are investing about $14 million into the run-down 120-year-old building, also known as Public School 99, to make it livable for dozens of families.

But the company said a buildup of computer parts, falling prices and the United Parcel Service strike will push its profit before taxes and charges to "marginal levels."
