Eventually, we may hear the city of Havre de Grace's specific allegations against Police Chief William L. Lamphere. But for over a month, there's been nothing but innuendo, leaks by unnamed officials and vague assertions of "misconduct."Officials in the Harford County city say that half the department's 35 employees have made formal complaints against the chief. An unidentified city official said the allegations against Mr. Lamphere involved "sexual" discrimination in promotions and hiring.

Paul Cantabene took the unusual step of prohibiting players from the Stevenson men's lacrosse team from conducting interviews after Tuesday night's 7-6 home loss to Tufts. Instead, the coach did all the talking, choosing not to mince words about the Mustangs' lackluster effort in their first loss in seven games this season. "I didn't think we played well," Cantabene said of the offense. "A lot of bad passes, a lot of bad drops. I think we're better than that, and for some reason, our attention to detail wasn't really good, and I thought we shot to some poor places and made their goalie look good.

"And somebody agreed to give the person $20 to take their dog inside for the rest of our shoot.

You may be hoping that Morgan (Super Size Me) Spurlock's Where in the World is Osama bin Laden? slipped into theaters without fanfare because Spurlock did find bin Laden (or at least got close to him) and had to keep it all hush-hush. No such luck. This movie is a case of arthouse bait and switch. Its true subject is one decent Yank's desire to believe that Everyman and Everywoman - Everywhere! - are as warm and amiable as your average American Joe: him, Morgan Spurlock, the regular guy as fearless globetrotter.

The Feds are hush-hush about whose name is on the list to prevent a run on the banks. So is there any other way for you to find out if your institution is safe and sound or on shaky ground? Luckily, there are a few sources for you to check: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. site, fdic.gov, posts financial figures and data on specific banks under "Bank Find."

The four-hour conflagration between the Capitals and Rangers in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series will be remembered for its thrills, for an early 3-0 New York lead and a three-goal Washington rally in the third period to force overtime. And, of course, it will stay vivid for its final image of a 4-3 win by the Caps that left them in command, three games to one, with the series headed back to Washington for Game 5 on Saturday. In this game's final split-second, with 7:24 left in the second overtime, the Capitals' Jason Chimera found himself behind the entire New York defense, in sole possession of a deflected puck off a Rangers stick, with nothing to do except flip the puck into an empty net for victory.

The County Council and its staff are about to get a lot more cozy. Some of the county government work force is scheduled to move to cramped, makeshift quarters for a year while the George Howard office building undergoes renovation. But because they will be giving up their offices and high-walled cubicles for rows of open work spaces in a Columbia office building, some council members and staff members are concerned about privacy in their temporary workplace. "It is a competitive political environment," said council Chairwoman Courtney Watson.

Didn't know the house was for sale and it's already sold? Some properties seem to sell at lightning speed without sprouting for-sale signs and open-house balloons. Take that Cape Cod in Lutherville that settled two weeks ago. The house wasn't on the regional Multiple Listing Service until it was sold. Anyone waiting for an open house would have been too late, because the first sign that went up said "Sold." "We had a contract before we had a sign," said Jill Jahries. She and her husband Peter were the sellers.

Much like the House before it, the Senate has included a generous infusion of new money to help restore the Chesapeake Bay; it's a sweetener to attract support for an otherwise objectionable farm bill. But lawmakers from Maryland and the rest of the bay watershed are not confronted with a take-it-or-leave-it decision. They should join with colleagues determined to pare back outdated and unnecessary crop subsidies when the measure comes to the Senate floor next week. Scaling back a program that gives all its benefits to one-third of farmers, leaving the rest with nothing, might also yield a bit more for conservation programs to benefit the bay - a win-win for Maryland.
