George G. Litz, former owner of one of the Baltimore area's largest brick distribution companies, died Feb. 11 of cancer at his Owings Mills home. He was 64. The son of a brick company executive and a homemaker, George Galvin Litz was born in Baltimore and raised on Cedarcroft Road. He was a 1967 graduate of City College and attended Loyola University Maryland. He then joined L & L Supply Co., the Lutherville business that had been founded in 1955 by his father, Donald P. Litz Sr., and John F. Leonard, who had worked together at the old United Clay & Supply Co. In 1975, he inherited L & L Supply Co. and continued operating it until last year when he sold it to Glen-Gery Brick, a division of Oldcastle Co. Mr. Litz had said that one of his "great passions in life" was the fact that his company supplied the brick that built Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium.

When the Ravens came to Baltimore, Lacie Litz never imagined it would bring her a husband as well as a career. Lacie's father, George G. Litz, owns L and L Supply in Lutherville, the company that supplied the brick used to build PSINet Stadium as well as Oriole Park at Camden Yards. During the football-stadium project, George Litz developed a friendship with Ravens owner Art Modell. In December 1997, Lacie, then a senior at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., was home on holiday break when Modell invited her family to see the last Ravens game played at Memorial Stadium.

Maryland bloodstock agent Don Litz has long dreamed of bringing thoroughbred stallions to the Worthington Valley in Baltimore County. His dream became real yesterday in a ceremony celebrating the start of construction on the Maryland Stallion Station, a new breeding operation situated on a hill overlooking historic Sagamore Farm in Glyndon. Backed by Lane End's Farm of Kentucky, a top commercial breeder, and $7 million in investor capital, the stallion station is the first to open in Maryland since Cecil County's Northview Stallion Station opened in 1989.

Andrew Litz wants you in his "band." Because his members need not own an instrument or even know how to properly play one, there is hope for all who wish to bask in the rays of rock stardom. All that is required of his hopefuls is that they look the part and act like they are playing an instrument. After all, it is an "air band" that he is looking to build. Using the stage name William Ocean and sporting a blond mop-top hairdo complete with a bandana and skin-tight gold jumpsuit, Litz, 29, has taken the world of air guitar by storm.

When Gov. Martin O'Malley announced his support for legalized gambling not long after his election, he did so on a Glyndon stud farm beside Tim Porter, whose struggling horse transportation business was extolled as the kind of small business that slots revenues would help preserve. Slot-machine parlors are finally on their way to Maryland, but they won't be Porter's salvation. In March, he declared bankruptcy, losing his 20-year-old business, a Westminster home and modest dreams of economic self-sufficiency.

Dreams of a thoroughbred stallion operation that evoked the state's racing glory days were dealt a setback when the Maryland Stallion Station left its north Baltimore County home and relocated its horses to survive the tough economy. However, Stallion Station president Don Litz is hopeful that by scaling back some of the expenses of the stud operation, the business can thrive while also giving a boost to the two farms where the stallions now stand. Four of the horses were moved to Bonita Farm in Harford County at the end of last year, and three others are at Shamrock Farm in Carroll County.

Next time someone gives you a signal in traffic, it may not be to indicate a right turn. Or to invite you to race. Or even to express road rage. It could be the start of something romantic. The highway has become the next stop on the Internet dating scene. A free Web site, Flirtingintraffic.com, debuted six months ago as a way to link drivers who catch each other's eye. "The hook is that someone can meet you instead of never seeing you again after the light changes," said Jennifer Litz, 24, of San Antonio, Texas.

A horse can have a tiny bone fracture that causes a leg to break. Or it can have genetic flaws, stumble on a pebble or be jostled by another horse. There is no evidence to suggest such factors contributed to Barbaro breaking his leg in the Preakness on Saturday, and trainers, veterinarians and thoroughbred experts say exactly why he did could forever remain a mystery. "There's a hundred different things that can cause it, and a lot of times it's impossible to say which one it was. It can be inherited.
