Sitting in history class at Archbishop Curley High School last spring, Mike Libber sometimes had trouble keeping his mind on the pilgrims.Instead, his thoughts were on more recent history -- specifically last November. That's when his Friars lost to Calvert Hall in the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference title game.So excited was Libber -- "Libbs" to his teammates -- about the chance for redemption, he'd bug classmate and Curley goalie Dennis Merryman with his thoughts, even grabbing away his best friend's notebook to scribble the words "Champs next year" on one of the pages.

The storied Oakland Mills boys soccer program, winner of a record 12 state championships, has a new look, a new feel and a new coach. Because 29-year coaching legend Don Shea declined to sign his yearly coaching contract after 18 seasons and eight state titles at Oakland Mills, Scorpions players now are adjusting to 28-year-old Mike Libber's ideas about running a successful soccer program. The differences between the two coaches are pronounced. Shea employed a direct North-South style that emphasized speed and defense; Libber teaches a more deliberate East-West style that emphasizes passing and offense.

My sister warned me that your first child lives packed in cotton, but your second child will have stitches before his second birthday. It is the result of the chaos that increases with each new baby.She should know. She has four kids, and they are practically on a first-name basis with the emergency-room staff.So I found some comfort in her words when my second child propelled herself down the cellar steps in her infant walker at 9 months. And needed stitches across the bridge of her nose at 14 months.

Bob Neighoff was the right fielder who committed the error.The Sun regrets the error.Archbishop Curley's James Libber just wouldn't give in to Mount St. Joseph. Not on the mound and not in the outfield.For 6 1/3 innings, the senior left-hander contained the Gaels' solid offense. After he was relieved, he made two game-saving catches in center field, as Curley held off the host Gaels, 5-3, to advance to today's Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference Tournament championship game.

The first team at a glancePLAYER OF THE YEAR* Mike Libber, Curley, senior, fullback -- The sweeper scored one goal and added one assist in the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference 3-2 championship victory over Calvert Hall and anchored a defense that had seven shutouts and allowed 11 goals during a 16-0-1 season. Curley's defense was under a lot of pressure in the title game when its starting goalkeeper broke his leg after 10 minutes. "His [Libber's] maturity held Calvert Hall off because they had their chances," Friars coach Pep Perrella said.

Concerns about utility smart meters are frequently dismissed as tinfoil-hat paranoia. But it's not so easy to dismiss Jonathan Libber. The Baltimore man delivers his arguments against the wireless devices in the calm manner of an attorney. He is, in fact, an attorney - retired from the Environmental Protection Agency, a point he notes when he reminds people of the country's spotty record of figuring out environmental hazards before they're widespread. As the force behind Maryland's smart-meter opposition, Libber is spending the early part of retirement in a way he'd never envisioned.

Freshman Cory Marcon, sophomore Chris Finney and junior Robert Silva will always share something in common as their Oakland Mills varsity soccer careers progress. They can all say they scored their first varsity goals against Aberdeen in yesterday's season-opening, 3-0 victory at Oakland Mills. It also happened to be Mike Libber's coaching debut for the No. 7-ranked Scorpions. After pounding defending Harford County co-champion Aberdeen with more than a dozen unsuccessful shots during a scoreless first half when they had a significant wind at their backs, the Scorpions broke open the game in the second half while attacking into the wind.
