Before she signed on to a new life, it was scary how depressed she was. Her marriage was crumbling, and she was "seriously lonely." Then, one day, America Online slipped an introductory disk into her mailbox. Let's try it, urged her concerned teen-age son. And now, after untold hours of online communion, she is a new woman with a new name: LarkAngel. And she speaks of her cyber savior with grateful zeal."All of a sudden I realized I didn't have to be at home depressed and lonely. I could honestly tell you it changed my life," says Lark-Angel, 41, who like many in cyberspace uses only her screen name in the real world, partly for security reasons and partly because one of the charms of life online is having a secret identity.

A boy could hide in Columbine High School. Let others choose colleges, majors, futures. Senior Adam Foss drove fast, pulled pranks and drifted towards graduation. School was a lark, life a good time. Then the halls erupted with gunshots. The killers were outside the choir room. Panicked students needed help. Who could they turn to? "In here!" Adam shouted. He herded them into an empty office. They waited. They prayed. And in those hours, an aimless boy discovered himself.It was the kind of day that made Adam Foss want to skip school.

A couple seeking a liquor license for a business in Elkridge were denied their request based on a lack of public need, according to a ruling this week by the Howard County Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board. The board decided that the proposed location, 6590B Old Waterloo Road in Lark Brown Village Center, is too close to an established store, Waterloo Liquors, which is a quarter-mile away. Five other liquor stores are within a three-mile radius, according to testimony. Dipti and Neelesh Vaidya, who operate a convenience store in the shopping center, sought the liquor license to expand their business.
