Community leaders, school officials and student athletes gathered at the complex Monday to dedicate the fields, which along with four additional grass surfaces will accommodate many of the Falcons' fall and spring sports teams while construction is underway on the new Severna Park High School.

The middle of this June's NBA lottery improved considerably when Georgia Tech point guard Kenny Anderson became the first prominent underclassman to turn pro.Anderson announced yesterday he will give up his last two seasons of college eligibility to join the NBA. In doing so, he probably will become the first guard taken in the June 26 draft, possibly by Charlotte.An NBA gag order concerning underclassmen still applies to Anderson, so Hornets vice president Allan Bristow couldn't discuss Anderson's impact yesterday.

Rather than rush headlong into a household project, I like to put it "under study."That is what I have done with the "bee wall." This is a brick wall, four flights up, that bees have invaded. Actually I think the invaders are hornets -- yellow jackets -- not honeybees. I am working on making a positive identification. They don't take kindly to folks who come calling.I discovered them on a golden weekend afternoon when, as is the custom of homeowners, I was conducting my annual state-of-the-roof inspection.

Larry Johnson should be happy. After a back injury limited him to 51 games two seasons ago and had many thinking he was washed up, Johnson returned last season to average 18.8 points and 7.2 rebounds and once again earn a spot as an Eastern Conference All-Star.So what are Johnson's thoughts on the coming season?"I'm not in the right frame of mind to play basketball," the Charlotte power forward said last week, a day before the Hornets opened training camp.What has upset Johnson is the off-season trade of Hersey Hawkins to the Seattle SuperSonics for Kendall Gill.

LANDOVER -- David Wingate, the former Dunbar High and Georgetown star, spent an anxious month waiting for an NBA team to call after the Washington Bullets chose not to re-sign the six-year veteran, who had been seeking a multi-year pact.When the Charlotte Hornets lost small forward Johnny Newman to a fractured hand last month, Wingate was signed to replace him for a minimum salary of $140,000.Now dividing time between forward and guard, he has become a valuable addition to the Hornets, especially on defense.

Chris Paul had 23 points, 17 assists and nine rebounds, and the host New Orleans Hornets ran away with their ninth straight win, 117-93, over the Denver Nuggets last night. A jubilant crowd broke into repeated chants of "M-V-P" in recognition of a masterful performance by the Hornets guard, who is the team's best shot at making the All-Star Game in New Orleans next month as a reserve. Even in a game featuring recently elected All-Star starter Allen Iverson, Paul was the best player on the floor.

The Cal Ripken World Series has been a highlight of summertime in Harford County for a dozen years. People in the community step up and provide housing for players, some of whom travel from as far away as is possible to get and still be on earth. As a result of this tradition, there always are some local people cheering extra hard for whatever teams are playing. It's a wonderful expression of hope for the future insofar as it brings people from many cultures together to share good times and good sports.

Speed and quickness prevailed in Saturday night's Class 3A state basketball championship, but it came down to the final seconds. Milford Mill used its transition game and perimeter defense to win its first state title since 2005, edging Damascus and 6-foot-5 forward Kelli Prange, 40-37, at Towson's SECU Arena. “It feels surreal,” Millers senior Qierra Murray said. “After the Aberdeen game [in the regional final], I had a dream that night that this was going to happen. It's still unbelievable, but it really feels good.” Prange - a senior headed for George Washington - scored 20 points and had 17 rebounds, but against the quicker Millers, the Hornets' perimeter game never got going.

Poly's girls basketball team has lived on the edge throughout the playoffs, but Thursday night the Engineers slipped off one step short of their goal, falling to Damascus, 49-37, in a Class 3A state semifinal at Towson University's SECU Arena. The Hornets, who lost to eventual champion Aberdeen in last year's semifinals, center their game around 6-foot-5 Kelli Prange, who averaged 21.4 points per game this season. The No. 2 Engineers held her to 15, but the Hornets puzzled Poly with their zone defense, dominated the defensive boards and moved the ball extremely well, creating openings inside and out.

The recent revelation of Charles H. Stanley's years of service (1862-65) in the Confederate Army - and his presumed support of the institution of slavery - cannot be overlooked in the selection of a name for the new Laurel library. The fact that the site adjoins Emancipation Park, a focus of activities involving the African-American residents of the Grove, greater Laurel and Prince George's County, is both ironic and significant. The park is the site of the annual celebration of Emancipation Day, which marked the end of slavery in America.

Dunbar has a solid resume' to fall back on when it comes to winning. Unfortunately for the Poets, they met someone Friday with a track record just as good. In playing Mansfield (Mass.) High, the No. 6 Poets were up against the owners of six Massachusetts Division 2 state titles. Dunbar rallied from a 14-point deficit late in the third quarter to take a lead, only to lose to Mansfield on a 29-yard touchdown pass with 17 seconds left, 29-26. "We put ourselves in that position," said Poets coach Lawrence Smith.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Losing is taking its toll on Muggsy Bogues.The Baltimore native wasn't his usual spirited, tenacious self in the Charlotte Hornets' 114-103 loss to the Orlando Magic yesterday.He played so poorly that he blamed the loss on himself. He missed nine of 10 shots, scored two points and committed three turnovers in the first three periods."I wasn't on top of my game," Bogues said. "If you ask me, I cost us the game. I didn't have the energy I normally have, that kick, that shot I need to give this team."

The struggling Washington Bullets reached the halfway mark of the 1992-93 season with a 12-29 mark -- the third worst in the NBA. Their latest defeat Saturday, a 127-121 overtime loss to the visiting Charlotte Hornets, typified their frustrations the past three months.The names of the rival teams and players may change, but for the Bullets, the negative results are predictable. No lead is safe, even in the closing seconds, as was the case in their three overtime contests at the Capital Centre in the space of a week.

The ends were just as important as the starts for the Stevenson men's lacrosse team in its 13-7 victory over No. 13 Lynchburg in Wednesday night's NCAA tournament quarterfinal at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. No. 4 Stevenson's fourth appearance in the last five national semifinals was aided by the offense's ability to score goals in the final minutes of the first and second quarters. Sophomore attackman Mark Pannenton converted a bounce pass from junior attackman Chris Dashiell with 1.1 seconds left in the first period and then scored with 38.3 and 19.7 seconds remaining in the second frame.
