Not long after Chante Callaway and her boyfriend got engaged, they decided to move in together. They wanted to do a test run, to really get to know each other before they made the big jump. "I was like, `I feel I need to know you more,'" said the 28-year-old from Rosedale. And a few months later, they did. So much so that they decided that they weren't marriage material -- for each other, anyway. Whether they're deciding to get married, to move in together or even just to date exclusively, couples find themselves at a crossroads at least one time in their relationship.

FRISCO, Texas -- Towson running back Terrance West expressed frustration Friday about  reports stating he will skip his senior year and declare for the NFL draft after the team's clash with North Dakota State in the Football Championship Subdivision title game at Toyota Stadium on Saturday at 2 p.m. The Baltimore native and Northwestern graduate disputed the report, which originated from a website called Campus SportsNet. “I didn't say it,” West said after the team had finished a news conference at the stadium.

The decision the Orioles face with Ryan Flaherty was already one of the most difficult ones of the of the spring before major league camp began, and as the team's days in Sarasota are whittled away, the 26-year-old utilityman has done nothing to make the organization's choice any easier. Last season, as the Orioles' Rule 5 draft pick, the choice was more definitive. If the Orioles didn't keep Flaherty on the roster for the entire season, they'd very likely lose him. This year, Flaherty can be optioned to the minor leagues.

DESPITE good intentions, careful planning and firm decisions, parents may still have a tough time with the holidays, especially this year. Here are some strategies for handling difficult Christmas situations at home:* Give Santa a social conscience. If Santa will be bringing fewer or smaller presents than he has in Christmases past, you can prepare youngsters by telling them that there is less for everyone this year. Advise youngsters to make a short wish list because Santa just won't be able to deal with a long one.* If an older child really wants an item that the family cannot afford, let him figure out ways to get it. Offer to contribute however much you would spend on his gifts toward the item and let him make up the difference.

Terence Morris could make a decision soon on whether he will play a fourth season at Maryland.

The owner of a growing public relations business based in a Baltimore suburb talked about decision-making as an essential tool for driving a business -- or career -- to success. A woman in her 50s who started young and at the bottom, she spoke on a Saturday morning to young women who expect to match her success."I don't know anything that hampers a person more than the inability to make a decision," she said. "Even people who know they've done careful research and given a project their best let themselves get bogged down in indecisiveness.

Like Ed Reed, Matt Birk has a decision to make about his future with the Ravens. And like the free safety, the 15-year center declined to say whether he envisioned playing out the final two years of his contract. “I don't know,” he said. “I'm worried about what I'm going to eat at dinner tonight. I don't make any decision until I have to. That's my motto.” Birk, 36, made his 113th consecutive start in Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard playoff round.

The season-ending knee injuries of not one but two quarterbacks have left Maryland so depleted that it is deciding between two inexperienced players to be the new starter and must convert a freshman linebacker or tight end to be third string. The latest injury - a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered by freshman Perry Hills in Saturday's loss to North Carolina State - leaves Maryland to choose between two very different sorts of quarterbacks: Caleb Rowe and Devin Burns. Rowe, a true freshman, is a redhead with a choir-boy face whose teammates describe him as a "gunslinger" because of the way he whips the ball around while directing two-minute drills in practice.

The Court of Appeals ruling this week calling for indigent defendants to be represented by lawyers at the court commissioner hearings that determine whether they'll be released before trial, granted bail or held in jail was an important step for justice in Maryland. These initial post-arrest proceedings can have profound effects on defendants - most of whom face relatively minor charges that will never go to trial - and on their families and communities. Ultimately, it will also be a good thing for taxpayers.

More than six years ago, Maryland's highest court voted to disbar Ira C. Cooke, once one of Annapolis' most prominent lobbyists, because of Mr. Cooke's conviction in an embezzlement case in California. A couple of years later, that conviction was reversed by the high court of California, and prosecutors in Bakersfield decided against a retrial. So, back in Annapolis, Mr. Cooke asked the Maryland Court of Appeals to reinstate him to the bar here. According to records, Mr. Cooke made that predictable request in the court's fall term of 2007 - by the calendar I've been using, four years ago - but the Court of Appeals only ruled on the matter late last month.

Bruce Drinkwater, a big guy in jeans and a battered fleece pullover, sidles up to the manager of the Spirit Halloween Superstore with the gruff yet familiar air of a man ready to talk football. Instead he grunts: "Have any more angel costumes?" And then hastily adds: "In her size." She is Nicole, his 11-year-old daughter, and she's standing beside him, sparkling with excitement (and maybe a smidgen of glitter rubbed off from a nearby princess outfit). Her parents don't spring for trick-or-treating gear every October because often as not there's a dance-recital dress or past year's costume that she can wear just as well as something new. Lately, though, Nicole has grown so fast -- about an inch every six months, according to the pencil lines that rise like ladder rungs on the kitchen wall of their Timonium home -- that there's no way that the Raggedy Ann costume will fit again, nor will the footie pajamas she wore the time she dressed up as a baby.

When they first met, she found his gentle, logical and stoic nature unbelievably attractive. But now, she says, they're slowly driving each other crazy. The fact that his company might be moving to Northern California, causing her to move far from friends and family, makes her wonder if she really wants to spend the rest of her life with him."

AS IS MADE obvious again and again over the years, there is nothing more annoying than dining out with someone who can't decide what to order. You know how this whole thing goes, of course. Let's say you've just been seated at a restaurant with, oh, your sister-in-law and her husband, to pick a purely hypothetical situation. The server chirps out the specials, takes your drink order and leaves you with the menus. A few minutes later, the server's back with the drinks and asks: "Everyone ready to order?"
