Growing up in Glen Burnie, Stephen D. Halford wanted desperately to be a police officer, but he was too short. He was a 5-foot-4-inch teen, and state police required 5 feet 10 inches and county police required 5 feet 8 inches.No way. So he thought about firefighting. But the county fire department's height minimum was 5 feet 6 inches, and the vertically challenged Halford had trouble making that.Determined, he became a volunteer firefighter -- and worked on the problem."I was trying to think of things I could do for that day to be taller," Halford said.

Stephen D. Halford, the Anne Arundel County fire chief who led the department through a landmark lawsuit and a radical name change, resigned yesterday after 28 years, the last five as chief. A former deputy fire chief, 52-year-old Roger C. Simonds, will emerge from retirement to replace him."Walking away from something you've been part of for 28 years is hard," Halford said, his voice echoing in the empty fire headquarters hallway. "This probably has been the most sentimental day of my life.

After a winless year in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference, St. Mary's hoped a drop into the B league this fall would yield more success. But the Saints (3-1, 0-1) got a rude welcome in yesterday's conference opener, a 28-0 loss at St. Paul's (2-1, 1-0), which rolled up 319 of its 393 yards the first half, 198 of that on the ground. Brenden Gill completed four of 10 passes for 121 yards, with scoring passes of 55 and 39 yards, respectively, to Walter Hill and Grant Halford.

Mayor Martin O'Malley easily won a second term in yesterday's election as city voters gave him a decisive victory that firmly establishes him as Baltimore's pre-eminent power broker and positions him to launch a serious bid for governor. After one term as mayor, the 41-year-old former prosecutor and city councilman has risen from a local political long shot in 1999 to what some polls suggest is the state Democratic Party's best hope at recapturing the governorship in 2006 from Republican Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. "The fact that nobody with any real resources ran against him means he's unchallengeable in Baltimore," said Matthew A. Crenson, a Johns Hopkins University political scientist.

It was supposed to be the Towson men's lacrosse team that needed this game. The Tigers were the ones playing for their NCAA lives. But from the opening faceoff, it was Loyola that appeared to be more motivated. And that was reflected on the scoreboard, as the third-ranked Greyhounds dominated the eighth-ranked Tigers, 15-7, yesterday in a Colonial Athletic Association game before 2,054 fans at Minnegan Stadium. Junior goalie Mark Bloomquist, who dislocated a finger in practice on Thursday, was spectacular in making 18 saves for the Greyhounds, and a Loyola offense, which has sputtered at times this year, got a huge lift from a couple of freshmen and the usual gutty performance from senior Michael Sullivan.

Unless more damaging facts about their participation in the scandal that brought an end to the lacrosse season at St. Paul's are uncovered, the Crusaders' top seniors will not lose college scholarships. After a majority of its varsity viewed a video a junior varsity player secretly made of himself having sex with a girl from another area private school, the St. Paul's administration canceled the season for the area's No. 1 team. Attackman Brendan Gill and midfielder Jack de- Villiers, two of the nation's top prospects, signed letters of intent with Virginia, where Gill would be united with his brother Conor.
