L. Brooks Lakin, a high school history teacher whose relentlessly high standards and intellectualism challenged and inspired generations of students, died Thursday of complications from a brain tumor at his Reisterstown home. He was 70. Mr. Lakin was a revered teacher at the Park School in Brooklandville for 40 years -- longer than any other teacher in the institution's history, said John Roemer, a fellow history teacher. "Here is a teacher who gives the most ferocious tests in the world, requires extraordinarily difficult research papers and asks tough questions in class -- and kids are knocking down the door trying to get in the classroom," Mr. Roemer said.

The sophomore sprinter added to an already impressive running resume with four gold medals in leading the No. 1 Eagles to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland track and field championship. She won the 100 and 200 meters and ran legs of the winning 800- and 1,600-meter relays. Undefeated in the 100 and 200, she has won seven IAAM titles in two years. An All-Metro first-team selection during the indoor track season, she helped the Eagles take that team title, too, by winning the 55 and 300 meters and anchoring the gold-medal 800 relay.

Two years after taking over 10 Macy's stores, including three in the Baltimore market, the Boscov's department store chain is wrestling with a "perfect storm" of slowed consumer spending and the credit crunch. Kenneth S. Lakin, chairman of the Reading, Pa.-based company, said in a phone interview yesterday that the department store chain had recently laid off 200 people at its headquarters and 10 to 20 at individual stores and refinanced some loans. He also said his family had put equity into the privately held company, but he would not give specifics.

Terrence Lakin is one of the fervent band of Americans who doubt that President Barack Obama was born in the United States. The catch is that Lakin is an Army lieutenant colonel who refused to report for deployment to Afghanistan because he questions Obama's credentials to serve as commander in chief. Lakin, a flight surgeon, pleaded guilty before a military court at Fort Meade on Tuesday to a charge that included not meeting with a superior when ordered to do so and not reporting to duty at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.

As Boscov's department store chief Kenneth S. Lakin stood last week among the buzz of workers preparing to open three new stores in the Baltimore area, he was reminded of advice an uncle once offered while building the 95-year-old family retail chain. "You can always get married again," Al Boscov once said. "But you can only open a store once." Boscov's executives, in the midst of the company's largest expansion in its history, are bringing new stores to the Baltimore area Oct. 28 in Marley Station Mall, Owings Mills Mall and White Marsh Mall with $12 million in renovations.
