A man fatally shot by police in Morrell Park last week refused orders to drop a .357-caliber revolver, according to court records, telling officers, "You're going to have to shoot me. " The man, 22-year-old Bernard Lofton of Parkville, was shot by officers who had been called to the 1800 block of Spence St. for a report that two men wearing police tactical vests had entered an apartment. Homicide detectives continue to investigate the shooting, and the officers are on routine suspension with pay. The account is contained within charging documents for 30-year-old Brandon Smith, of Owings Mills, who police say was with Lofton and was found hiding in the apartment's bathroom after the shooting.

CLEVELAND -- Mark Eichhorn shut out the Cleveland Indians for 4 2/3 innings Wednesday night to earn his third victory of a seven-game road trip that concluded last night.But the throws he took most pride in didn't go to the plate, they went to first base. Eichhorn threw over to first seven times, keeping Kenny Lofton from stealing second in the ninth inning of the Orioles' 7-6, 10-inning victory.Lofton, who led off with a bunt single, then was erased when Omar Vizquel grounded into a double play, one of five on the night for the Orioles, including three with Eichhorn on the mound.

CLEVELAND -- The Lake Erie midges gave new meaning to the term home-field advantage when they crashed Jacobs Field earlier in the postseason. The Boston Red Sox, however, could not blame last night on the bugs. There were no buzzing insects in Daisuke Matsuzaka's air space when Kenny Lofton took him deep for a two-run homer in the second inning. And nothing appeared to be crawling on any of Boston's hitters as they bounced into three double plays against Indians No. 3 starter Jake Westbrook, often overlooked because of Cleveland aces C.C. Sabathia and Fausto Carmona.

It was a '90s kind of deal. The Cleveland Indians traded their contract problem to the Atlanta Braves for a star-quality outfielder who had priced himself out of the starting lineup and a center fielder on a fixed income.Confused?This is only the beginning. Major-league owners have been trying for years to find a way to emulate the NBA and the NFL and -- with the signing of the new collective bargaining agreement -- they finally have succeeded. You can't go to a game without tripping over the luxury tax threshold or pick up the newspaper without getting another unwanted economics lesson.

TAMPA, Fla. -- The title of this chapter could be: In Which James Lofton Wins One for Ernie Banks.That's the way Lofton would love it to read, anyway.It's the Super Bowl, and that's where these stories get told. We have in Lofton an aged wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, hanging on more with guile than speed, having already caught his many hundred passes, having already played in all those Pro Bowls, finally, finally getting his shot in the Big One, savoring every minute of it, thanking whoever it is we thank for such gifts that, at age 34, nearly two years after being waived, he's here and how nobody can ever take that away from him.The story is even better once you talk to Lofton, who is glib, bright, charming and even self-effacing.

The Super Bowl started 24 years ago in the Los Angeles Coliseum when the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs.James Lofton was there, sitting in the upper rows of the Coliseum with his father, Emanuel. By the second half, they sneaked into better seats near the 30-yard line.Next Sunday, Lofton, the 34-year-old receiver for the Buffalo Bills, turns from Super Bowl spectator to participant when he faces the New York Giants."Ask some of my teammates about it, and they would probably say I was 20 when I saw that first game," Lofton said.

CLEVELAND -- It isn't easy to single out the most dominating player in the Cleveland Indians' lineup. Albert Belle hit 50 home runs in the regular season. Manny Ramirez had 107 RBIs. Eddie Murray soon could become only the third player in history to accumulate 500 home runs and 3,000 hits.But the player who frightens Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox the most appears to be little Kenny Lofton, who re-emerged as the Indians' offensive catalyst in Tuesday night's 7-6, extra-inning victory. Lofton reached base six times -- twice on intentional walks -- and scored three runs to awaken his club's sleeping lineup.

CLEVELAND -- There is the possibility of rain, and even snow, when the World Series resumes tonight at Jacobs Field. It can get intemperate in a hurry on the banks of Lake Erie, where even the weatherman was unsure that this Indians summer would last so long.The fact that the Cleveland Indians are playing host to their second Fall Classic in three years is something of an upset -- or a series of them. They came from behind to steal the Division Series from the favored New York Yankees, then they showed the Orioles a thing or two about teamwork in the American League Championship Series.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Chris Lofton and a clock adjustment saved Tennessee. Lofton's 19-foot two-pointer with 0.4 of a second remaining yesterday gave the Volunteers a dramatic 63-61 victory over Winthrop in the first round of the Washington Regional. Tennessee avoided becoming the fifth No. 2 seed and the first since 2001 to lose in the first round, because the 15th-seeded Eagles might have gotten an overtime if not for a TV review. With the Volunteers in possession and coach Bruce Pearl signaling for a timeout, he got one with 1.8 showing on the scoreboard.

YOU'VE GOT to admire the moxie of John Lofton. The guy doesn't even shy away from the word theocracy. I remember Lofton mainly from his 15-year stint on WJZ-TV's Square Off, which was arguably the best, and definitely the most contentious, public affairs program to appear on local airwaves. Lofton was usually there giving - quite cogently and eloquently, I might add - the conservative take on topics of the day. These days, Lofton - who calls himself "a recovering Republican" - is the co-host with 2004 Constitution Party presidential candidate Michael Peroutka of the radio show American View.

Sleep? What's that?" When Dorothy Lofton Jones asks the question, it seems entirely possible that the notion of slumber is an alien concept. She's the force behind the Municipal Opera Company of Baltimore - founder, artistic director, even costume maker - and, at 67, her energy level shows no signs of wavering. For several weeks now, that energy has been focused on a production of Puccini's Madama Butterfly, which opens tonight at the company's home base, Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Church.

NEW ORLEANS - Still hurting after free-agent left-hander Andy Pettitte scorned them, the New York Yankees apparently have found another pitcher to accept their love - and their money. Former Oriole Kevin Brown gave his tentative approval yesterday to a proposed trade that will send him from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Yankees for pitcher Jeff Weaver, two minor leaguers and $3 million. That's one way to get over Pettitte, who took less money Thursday to sign with the Houston Astros.

CLEVELAND -- Indians outfielder Marquis Grissom returned to Cleveland this week a conquering hero. That much was apparent from the loud ovation he received during introductions for Game 3 of the 93rd World Series last night.How things have changed. This is the same guy who struggled through the first half of the regular season and eventually lost his place at the top of the Indians' batting order, which was not exactly the kind of first impression he had hoped to make when he was acquired from the Atlanta Braves for popular Kenny TC Lofton.

When Kenny Lofton steps into the batter's box to lead off the first inning on Opening Day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, it will signal the start of a new era.For the Cleveland Indians.Lofton, one of the top prospects in baseball, is a symbol of the Indians' latest rebuilding strategy. The Indians, who haven't been in a postseason game since 1954, have ripped up the old and planted new seeds at virtually every position.The plan is that they all will bloom together within the next two years, just in time for the 1994 opening of Cleveland's new downtown ballpark.

NLCS by the numbers 1: Mike Remlinger's saves past 3 years before last night. 6: Consecutive hits by Kenny Lofton over two games. 2 : Doug Glanville's postseason ABs in 13 pro years. 1: HRs last night; there were 13 in the first 2 games. MIAMI - The Chicago Cubs rode the talented arm of Kerry Wood to a crossroads in the National League Championship Series last night. Then they went the last mile without him. Wood pitched well in Game 3, but not well enough to win. The Cubs had to go 11 innings to score a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins before a sellout crowd of 65,115 at Pro Player Stadium.
