Earlier this month, incumbent Howard County Register of Wills Byron Macfarlane announced his intention to run for re-election in 2014. Which begs an important question: What exactly does a register of wills do? As might be inferred from his title, Macfarlane is an attorney who works with wills. More specifically, he helps to guide county residents who have lost a loved one through the process of distributing the deceased's property based on stipulations in their will. Macfarlane and his staff of seven help family members fill out all the forms required in the probate process.

Look into Kate Macfarlane's eyes and you'd swear she could see in the dark.Nothing escapes the Hereford goalkeeper's notice. Very little escapes her reach.With feline agility and a thorough knowledge of the position, Macfarlane earned everything from All-County to All-Metro to All-State soccer honors last fall as a sophomore.What really sets her apart, however, is a powerful determination to excel especially under pressure. You can see it in her eyes."I like pressure. I think I play a lot better if there's a lot more pressure on me. A lot of people would say it's crazy, because I like having to make hard saves, I like having to save the game.

For much of regulation, No. 5 Dulaney just did not get close enough to shoot the ball past Hereford's All-Metro keeper Kate MacFarlane.Then in overtime, Lions wing Paige Young sent a ball into the middle where Ali Schuch waited -- plenty close enough. Schuch fired the ball low into the net giving the Lions a 1-0 victory over No. 14 Hereford.MacFarlane finished with 10 saves, although the Lions (8-0 overall, 4-0 league) didn't make her work until the second half."In the first half, there were a lot of floaty dribblers, floaty shots to the corner which is good on just about every other team, but we're not going to get any trash goals on her," said Dulaney coach Amy Green.

Peter LaCount considered taking the day off from work after the war began in Iraq. He thought he might need to settle himself in a reality he hadn't had the time to accept. But chasing a 2-year-old around doesn't leave LaCount much opportunity for quiet reflection. And, he thought too, he'd save the time off for that unknown future date when his wife, Susan, a major in the Army Reserves, comes home from the Middle East. So LaCount finished unloading the dishwasher in his Catonsville kitchen with the help of daughter Grace, still clad in her fuzzy pink-footed sleepers, and prepared yesterday morning to leave for the office.

When Aubrey Schaeffer transferred this fall from Mercy to Perry Hall, she feared she might not fit in with her new teammates.Instead, the No. 3 Gators could not be happier with the new addition to their line especially after Schaeffer scored the only goal in last night's 1-0 victory over No. 14 Hereford."

This rivalry is getting so predictable.It's the regular season, so it must be Loch Raven's turn to beat Hereford.Sure enough, the No. 6 Raiders edged third-ranked Hereford, 1-0, in yesterday's Baltimore County Division I league opener for both teams.Since 1994, the Raiders have swept all three regular-season meetings, and the Bulls have won both regional playoff games. Loch Raven's last playoff win over the Bulls came in 1993, when the Raiders went on to win the state Class 1A/2A title.The two almost certainly will meet again in the regional playoffs in November.
