ALEXANDRIA, Va. - There are almost 700 people lined up outside the Mercedes dealership here, with their gelled hair and their pressed suits and their absolute conviction that they will be the next apprentice to Donald Trump or Martha Stewart. Producers politely ask which show they are auditioning for - the fourth season of Trump's program, The Apprentice, or the first season of its spinoff, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart - but they didn't really need to bother. Stewart's devotees are easily spotted: They're the ones who proffered their resumes in elaborately decorated hatboxes, wore pink somewhere on their person, came bearing gifts of chocolates or potted plants or heart-shaped peanut butter sandwiches, and/or filled out their applications using alternating shades of pink and green ink. "OK, this is a Martha group, right?"

Vijay Singh looked as if he might close out the Mercedes Championships in Kapalua, Hawaii, after shooting a 30 on the front side yesterday. But the world's No. 1 relented a bit on the backside, making only two birdies. As a result, Singh had to "settle" for a 65 during the second round. At 15-under par, he has a two-shot lead over Mike Weir at the Plantation Course. "I had a great start and got it going," Singh said. "My goal was to make some birdies and stay ahead. On the back nine, I couldn't make many putts.

Mercedes-Benz USA LLC, already the single-biggest car brand imported through the port of Baltimore, plans to sign a 10-year lease Monday for a large waterfront lot in Dundalk so it can increase the number of trucks and luxury automobiles brought here by ship. The German manufacturer now imports about 90,000 cars and trucks a year via smaller lots in Dundalk and Belcamp. The vehicles are then shipped by truck and rail to Midwest and East Coast dealerships. At a signing ceremony with Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. scheduled for Monday, port officials are expected to predict the larger, state-owned lot will increase Mercedes' annual import numbers to 160,000 over the life of the lease.
