Longtime Baltimore Colts and Ravens fan Jim Phillips will be laid to rest Saturday following a service at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Hagerstown. Phillips, 81, was a huge part of the fiber of Baltimore football, almost as much as some of the former Colts and current Ravens greats. Jim was passionate about the game and had ties with some of the city's great legends like John Unitas, Art Donovan, Lenny Moore and Mike Curtis. He rarely missed a game on Sunday, and even kept the old Colts Corral group in Hagerstown going during the 13 years when Baltimore didn't have football after the Colts left for Indianapolis.

Terns and gulls were screeching, whirling, diving. Here and there baitfish cleared the surface of this small portion of Chesapeake Bay, chased upward by hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of larger fish feeding heavily.And Jim Phillips was laughing."D'you see that?" Phillips said, balancing against the starboard gunwale. "I had just taken my fly from the water and a striper came two feet out of the water after it. Too bad it missed. That would have really been something."As it was, the previous 30 minutes or so already had been something special.

Told by local Afghans that hundreds of Taliban fighters were holed up in nearby villages and in the mountains above them, Army Warrant Officer Michael J. McInerney led his detachment of 12 Special Forces soldiers from a Maryland Army National Guard unit into the jagged hills in pursuit. The insurgents "scattered like rats," said McInerney, 39, a resident of Alexandria, Va. But between Aug. 25 and Sept. 4 last year, he and his fellow citizen-soldiers, with about 200 Afghan militiamen, tracked the Taliban on foot up the hot, dusty valleys that crease the 9,000- foot peaks north of Dai Chupan, in southern Zabul province.

Musical director David B. Daniel's debut with the Arundel Vocal Arts Society was a strong one, as he led a Christmas "Hodie" concert that included Renaissance chants, American spirituals and contemporary rhythmic works that revealed the AVAS singers' impressive talents. Choirmaster Lara Hoggard's 1985 arrangement of a medieval praise song with roots in the 13th century opened last week's program at Calvary United Methodist Church in Annapolis on a bright note. Personent Hodie featured trumpets, trombones and tuba heralding the birth of Jesus, and Daniel skillfully brought out the many moods of this difficult piece in the chorus' impassioned singing of the Nativity story.

Almost 6,000 bicyclists will traverse the pine forests and wind-swept sand dunes along the country roads of the southern Eastern Shore tomorrow, but they will not, repeat not, be racing. Most of the slow-motion procession of peddlers will have scenery, not victory on its mind in the eighth Sea Gull Century.A 100-mile, non-competitive one-day tour, the Sea Gull Century has grown from the notion of a group of Salisbury State faculty members into the third-largest event of its kind in the eastern United States.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald is calling the Wildcats' trip to Houston for the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas a "road game," and you can see why. The opponent will be Texas A&M, located 100 miles from bowl site Reliant Stadium. Then again, Fitzgerald estimates he has visited Houston 100 times, mostly while recruiting. "I know Houston probably better than I know Chicago," he said. "You name two towns, I can tell you how to go without GPS. " The Wildcats continue to seek directions for winning a bowl game.

The house on Frederick Road had a downright neighborly feel as soon as you walked in the door. Casually clad folks greeted one another like old friends, as children chased through the rooms. Just the kind of house warming party you would expect of the Grant-A-Wish / The Children's Promise Foundation in its new Catonsville digs. Among those welcoming visitors was founder and executive director Brian Morrison, who expressed his delight over the organization's new headquarters.
