He had moved to Vero Beach in 1991, when he retired from the county police force. During his 26-year career, he had assignments on patrol in the Northern District and working in the 911 Center in Millersville. Born in Baltimore and raised on North Belnord Avenue, Mr. Gibmeyer was a 1948 graduate of Mount St. Joseph High School.

Lately Fell's Point Corner Theatre seems to have a knack for giving audiences what they need. A couple of months ago, when we thought summer would never come, the theater produced "110 in the Shade."Now that summer arrived without giving spring a chance, the theater has a swimming pool on stage. OK, not a full-fledged pool. Just one corner of a pool.But since the entire stage is about the size of a wading pool, this is a considerable accomplishment. And it's an essential one for Terrence McNally's 1991 play, "Lips Together, Teeth Apart," which has been staged with skill and sensitivity by Terry J. Long.

On a hot tip from a friend, I decided to make the trip to an "off-the-beaten-path" restaurant on a recent Saturday night in Pasadena. And to my delight, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful "home-cooked" meal. Tall Oaks may be Pasadena's best-kept secret. On the outside, the building appears small, with tall oaks surrounding the structure. You almost feel as if you've traveled to the quietness of a mountain cabin retreat. But once inside, the spacious, 110-seat dining room, covered in rich wood paneling, offers a homey atmosphere.

CLARKSBURG - Michael Muehr, from Great Falls, Va., shot a 5-under-par 67 in the final qualifying event at Little Bennett Golf Course yesterday to lead four players into this week's Kemper Open at TPC-Avenel. He was joined by Ted Haley, Charlotte, N.C., and George McNeill, Fort Myers, Fla., who had 69's, and Stephen Gangluff, Marysville, Ohio, who survived a three-way playoff for the final spot after shooting 70. Muehr, 28, made it for the fourth straight year (he made one cut) in a season where he has his game "better than it's ever been."

Shoppers often judge a store by its window display. But these days, they should be more concerned about what could be leaking out the window than what's in it. Millions of customers who shopped at stores owned by TJX Inc. such as T.J. Maxx and Marshall's found out the hard way: Hackers parked outside used a laptop and antenna to capture data from the company's wireless network, enabling them to breach TJX's computer systems and over several years steal...

YOU WOULD BE surprised (or perhaps mildly taken aback) at the number of people who will corner a writer at a cocktail party and inquire -- even before he or she has a chance to rake a cracker through the onion dip -- about writer's block.Writer's block is defined as that malady in which the writer's creative juices have seemingly dried from a great gushing torrent to a trickle.The writer sits and stares at a blank piece of typing paper or word processor screen and can summon neither an interesting thought nor a clever phrase, soon convincing himself that it would be far better for all concerned if he abandoned the literary life for that job in the fish store, straightening the haddock and doling out half-pounds of boiled shrimp to appreciative customers.

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Best Buy Co. Inc. bought the Geek Squad five years ago, the two companies pledged to "protect the world from the assault of computerized technology." Geek Squad "agents" even wore badges and drove vehicles resembling police cars. But as this squadron of techno-nerds has mushroomed into the largest collection of computer troubleshooters in the world, it has become increasingly difficult for the firm to police its own employees. In recent months, allegations of agents copying pornography, music and alluring photos from customers' computers have circulated on the Internet.

GLOUCESTER, Mass. -- Boat captain Salvatore Napoli fondly recalls how, just a decade ago, he and his fishing mates would chug out to the ocean and, in a week, net up to 40 tons of cod, haddock, flounder and other bottom-dwelling fish.Last week, after 10 days at sea, he returned with only a quarter of that haul."Today, we don't bring in much fish," sighed Mr. Napoli, 38, a native of Sicily who has been fishing off the New England coast for 18 years and still speaks with a heavy accent.All around him, orange-suited laborers were hurriedly unloading the 75-foot-long boat and packing piles of fresh, glistening fish into ice-filled, gray plastic shipping containers.

Smith, Ellen Haddock, James E. Reter, Gregory A. Dorsey, Mary Oldewurtel, Angela Lee, Henry George Griese IV, Ralph Grubb-Wheeler and Thomas A. Stone.
