Cowboys, 18-12, for the national junior-midget title at the Pop Warner Super Bowl at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex. "My heart is jumping, just jumping," said Lakeland coach Kevin Roberson of his 10-12-year-old players, who completed a 14-0 season. "We fought hard all season. This is such a great win for us and for our kids." Bates' first touchdown came in the first quarter, a 42-yard strike to Turner Morris.

Patapsco Avenue, and taken to Maryland Shock Trauma center where he died about an hour later.

Angie Adams, a sixth-grader at Lakeland Elementary-Middle School, has a six-page report on court procedures due tomorrow. She is interested, and has made time to write the paper. But without reliable library service close to her neighborhood, she is struggling to find the books she needs."I'm frustrated," says Angie, 12. "We could really use a branch around here. I'll probably have to wait for books until someone can give me a ride to the Pratt downtown."The concerns of Angie and other readers, young and old, have sparked a movement in the Southwest Baltimore neighborhood of Lakeland to build and operate what would be Baltimore's first independent, community-run library in memory.

Flying Tigers on Aug. 17, playing cards with teammates and getting ready for batting practice before a game against the Clearwater Threshers, when he was approached by Glenn Ezell, the Detroit Tigers' director of player development.

Observations, opinions and musings from last week in Major League Baseball. There have been plenty of big-name players getting injured this year, but last week set the standard. St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols (calf strain) hit the disabled list, and so did Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano (broken hand) and Cleveland Indians catcher Victor Martinez (elbow surgery). Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman (shoulder tear) will be out for at least four more weeks, and Indians pitcher Jake Westbrook is done for the year after elbow-ligament surgery.

By the time the ball drops in Times Square tonight, 500 Baltimore senior citizens will already be reminiscing about their New Year's celebration Friday afternoon at Martin's West. Mary and John Scott, husband and wife for 54 years, partied with peers from across the city at the recreation and parks event. She and her husband had "a magnificent time," said Mary Scott, 71, taking to the dance floor to "shake it up." Tonight, though, she plans to be in church. Conspicuous New Year's Eve carousing might have its fans, but many revelers prefer to shun midnight madness for more intimate and low-key ways of welcoming 2008.

WALK INTO Claudia Robinson's sixth-grade math class at Lakeland Elementary/Middle School and you wonder if you've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone. There they were, about 20 to 25 pupils, hunched over their math books, working steadily, distracted minimally, if at all, by the conversation their teacher was having with the school's principal and a pesky columnist. "If this school had a gifted and talented math class," Robinson said, "this would be it." But wait a second: This isn't supposed to happen in Baltimore City classrooms.
