Linnea Gonzales, Patterson Mill's standout junior midfielder, is rarely found without a field hockey stick in her hand. "Every time I've picked her up, whether it's 7 o'clock in the morning or 5 o'clock at night, she's in the driveway with a ball and a stick," said Janice Rhodes, Gonzales' club team coach. If that's the first thing you notice about Gonzales, the second is that she's almost impossible to catch on the field. The midfielder's blazing speed gives defenders fits and is helping put her on the fast track to her dream - a spot on the U.S. Olympic field hockey team.

The sound of music has Michael Phelps back in the endorsement business, just months after a tabloid photo of him holding a bong caused the loss of one sponsor and earned him a three-month suspension from USA Swimming. Phelps, 23, has signed a multiyear deal with H2O Audio, a San Diego-based company that produces waterproof headphones and cases used by divers. The 16-time Olympic medalist joins a stable of athletes, including surfer Laird Hamilton and 11-time Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin.

Had enough rain yet? Well, be thankful it has topped off the Baltimore reservoir system for the long, hot summer ahead. The Department of Public Works says Liberty Reservoir is less than two feet below crest, and Prettyboy is overflowing. Loch Raven Reservoir runneth over, too. All in all, the system stands at 97.6 percent of its 75.8-billion-gallon capacity. So ice the H2O and bring on the heat!

Building for the future isn't easy. At least that's what Royal Caribbean International's Harri Kulovaara said at a recent event, unveiling details about the line's latest city-sized behemoth, Freedom of the Seas. When Freedom launches next May, the 158,000-ton, 4,370-passenger vessel will wrest the title of world's largest cruise ship from Cunard's 150,000-ton Queen Mary 2. Freedom is the first of three planned vessels in this monster-of-the-seas category. It will be more than a fifth of a mile long, 184 feet wide, 15 decks tall and 75 feet longer than RCI's leviathan Voyager-class ships.

Armies have fought over it, priests have blessed it and scientists have searched for it in distant worlds. Life as we know it cannot exist in the absence of water, and from time immemorial water has been celebrated and revered as the indispensable fluid on which all life depends. So perhaps it's no surprise that this ubiquitous but essential liquid, is now the subject of a sometimes serious, often lighthearted exhibition at the American Visionary Art Museum. Holy H2O: Fluid Universe is an extended essay of some 150 works by 40 outsider artists on the many meanings and associations of water throughout history.

WASHINGTON -- It is hard to be a Democrat these days. It is especially hard if you want to be paid for being one. After a bruising election cycle in which their candidates lost most of the major races from president on down, throngs of ex-campaigners and soon-to-be out-of-work congressional staffers were more than happy to stand in the rain yesterday waiting to get into a job fair held by a Democratic organization. There were people who worked for Sen. Tom Daschle, the Democratic leader toppled from his post last month.

A lily for many daysIt took hybridizer Jack Roberson 3,000 hybrid crosses to come up with Black-Eyed Stella, winner of the All-America Daylily honors for 1994. According to the All-America Daylily Selection Council, a nonprofit organization that tests and promotes superior cultivars, it exceeds all other day lilies in several important respects.The Black-Eyed Stella has an extraordinary length of bloom -- in California and Florida, as long as 300 days; in North Carolina, 145 days. Compare that to the average day lily (21 days a year)

To Thomas Pignataro, water never tasted so good. More than a decade after starting Brick House Farm LLC and several starts and fits with former partners, Pignataro is finally ready to see his Clarksville bottling company advance in the water market. With new partners, $700,000 worth of new equipment, plans for acquiring more land and a waiting list of customers, Brick House Farm is positioning itself for expansion. Only one other water company in the state - Green Spring - has both a bottling operation and a source in Maryland.
