With oral commitments from sophomores growing from a trickle to a deluge the past couple of years, it was only a matter of time before the first freshman commitment arrived. That time is now. According to Inside Lacrosse, the history makers are attackman Forry Smith of the Haverford School in Havertown, Pa., and Johns Hopkins, which should come as no surprise given remarks that coach Dave Pietramala made to Baltimore Sun reporter Childs Walker in a story on the sophomore trend that ran this month: "There's no question I'm talking out both sides of my mouth on this," Pietramala said.

In a duck's-eye view, the LeCompte backyard in Linthicum looked likeas good a place as any to start a family.Here was this nice backyard in-ground pool for splashing and swimming and some bushes for privacy. When you're a wild duck and suburban sprawl is swallowing yournatural digs, you do what you can.Now, Daisy the duck hunkers down in her nest hidden in the bushesin the backyard on Orchard Road. She sits and sits. Beneath her are at least 10 eggs.The question is: Did the wild mallards adopt theLeCompte family or did the family adopt the wild mallards?

The Baltimore state's attorney's office dropped prostitution charges Monday against two sisters believed to have been trafficked into the country from Mexico, prosecutors said, because city police failed to produce the evidence against them. Assistant State's Attorney Joakim Tan said that investigators supplied him with charging documents, the results of criminal background checks on the women and the warrant authorizing the Sept. 25 search of a two-story Butchers Hill rowhouse in the 200 block of S. Collington Ave. But when Tan asked for the evidence seized during the search - a ledger police had said showed that the suspects each had 19 customers on the day of their arrest along with money, business cards and 20 photographs - one of the detectives said there were "problems" locating it, Tan said.

GREENSBORO - William LeCompte sped in a golf cart alongside a windowless steel building nearly twice the length of a football field, packed with 28,000 chickens and monitored by computers that calibrate their food, water, heat, lighting and air. At the end of the immense, hangar-like structure, he pointed to a vent framing a 4-foot-high fan, whose whirling blades breathed a warm, moist plume of fetid gas into the night sky over Maryland's Eastern Shore....
