DURBAN, South Africa — Joachim Loew could have said what everyone expected. Germany's boyish coach could have made excuses. He could have blamed his players or his ill-conceived game plan for his team's loss. Instead he simply said what everyone already knew. "Spain was just better than us tonight," Loew confessed. "Over the past two or three years Spain has been the most skilled team of all. They are masters of the game." Spain made history Wednesday with a 1-0 victory over Germany, advancing to its first World Cup final.

Melvin is a member of Mount Airy's Civil Air Patrol Squadron 18091 of the Maryland Wing. He served as master of ceremonies for the Squadron's Charter Ceremony that was held Sunday at Mount Airy Fall Festival.@

A man clowning it up as a woman has always raised a laugh. That's the idea behind "Pageant," the musical playing at Rep Stage in Columbia. The actors in the cast, though, give much better performances than the amateur efforts you sometimes see at parties. And the laughs are there - plenty of them. The show is a spoof of that great American institution, the beauty pageant - in fact, it's structured like one, with an oily, fawning master of ceremonies, a parade of contestants representing different parts of the country and a full range of competitions - evening gown, talent, swimsuit and physical fitness.
