John C. Mather went to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in 1976 with one goal: taking measurements in space that would show how the universe was formed. His focus paid off. Mather oversaw the development and launching of a satellite that took a unique snapshot of the early universe by measuring the pervasive radiation left over from the big bang. Yesterday, his work at the Greenbelt facility earned him a share of the Nobel Prize for physics with collaborator George F. Smoot, a scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California.

"I must have been throwing a lot of 'Dotty balls,' " said a laughing Trish Mather. "That's the only reason I can think of for getting my career high game and high set at the same time."A Dotty ball? There are a lot of bowling balls with lot of different names on the market, but a Dotty ball?"The Dotty ball got its name from my mom, Dotty Richard," said Mather. "When she got a strike with a really, really bad ball, everybody would holler, "Dotty ball, Dotty ball."Still, Mather had a great night in the Thursday All-Star League at Westminster Thunderhead Lanes.

Who's to say what compels men to explore such phenomena as the nascent light of the universe or the on/off switch in genes? But the curiosity and impulse of scientists John C. Mather and Andrew Z. Fire are less the issue today than their intellectual persistence and pursuits, which earned each a Nobel prize in their respective fields of physics and medicine. Both pursued their groundbreaking discoveries in Maryland, individual achievements duly honored. But their success also should be celebrated collectively as it reinforces Maryland's reputation as a state that supports science and technology and the professions they promote.

WESTMINSTER'S T. W. Mather & Sons has been a relic for some years now -- a vestige of life before suburbanization drove businesses out of towns and cities to malls and megastores, an anachronism amid retail giants and perpetual discounts.Local Baltimore area department stores have been dropping like pins in a dressing room for more than two decades. Hochschild's, Hutzler's, Stewart's -- all dead. Woodward & Lothrop, the classy Washington store with a mall-anchor location in Parole, went down fighting last year.

THE CLOSING OF T.W. Mather Inc. last fall left a dangerous hole at 31 E. Main St. in downtown Westminster -- probably the most important building in the heart of the Carroll County seat other than the county library.Mather's small department store was the anchor of a business district that, like so many small-town downtowns, has been fighting for a decade to stay above water as merchants migrate to the mall and other locations along the commuter strips. A vacant storefront at this prominent location amounts to blight.

After towering over Westminster's Main Street for 106 years, T. W. Mather & Sons, one of the last family-owned department stores in Maryland and the city's last vestige of the downtown-shopping era, is closing.A victim of major discount stores and shopping malls, the venerable store opened for its final clearance at 9 a.m. yesterday. All day, blocklong lines, reminiscent of the ones that formed during nylon shortages in World War II, snaked outside the two-story, marble-facade building."It is the end of an era, a sad time," said Sherry Cooke, who came to Mather's 20 years ago while a student at Westminster High and is now store manager.

Mather & Sons store by November -- thanks to a low-interest state loan.He's been eager to move since the century-old department store closed last fall, but the state-backed loan to Coffey Music was crucial. Coffey said yesterday that he has received a commitment letter for a $325,000 through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development's Neighborhood Business Development Program.

If there's one word that sums up the feeling at the Yellow Dress Golf Classic dinner, it was "family." Not only did the event benefit the family-founded Kristin Rita Strouse Foundation, but there was a feeling of family in the Hillendale Country Club ballroom, where several hundred folks gathered. Sharon and Doug Strouse had started the foundation and the golf tournament not long after their daughter ended her own life in 2001. They and their daughter Kimberly and son Kevin warmly welcomed guests.

BOSTON - We now arrive at that annual moment of holiday panic. The seconds are ticking on the last-minute catalogs. You are actually considering paying $15.48 to overnight an $11 paperback. Well, usually when Christmas angst comes around, I say, "Don't blame me, I'm from Massachusetts. Or at least Massachusetts Bay Colony." The same commonwealth that may soon permit gay marriages once banned a Merry Christmas. In the 1640s, mince pies and plum puddings were forbidden. In 1659, the Puritans ruled that celebrating Christmas was a criminal offense.

"Even as a child, young Marshall exhibited a unique storytelling style." - Sarah Giles, Marshall Mathers' third-grade teacher Immediately after having the future rap star Eminem in her Detroit classroom, Sarah Giles retired from teaching. Officially, she cited "burnout" as the reason for her retirement at the age of 22. But recently released school records indicate Ms. Giles was "troubled" by the first songwriting efforts of young Marshall Mathers. Responding to media requests, school administrators have agreed to release some of Mathers' schoolwork - which, since 1980, has been the property of the FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit.
