ORLANDO, Fla. - Thousands of drivers zipping along Interstate 4 between Lee Road and Maitland Boulevard every day are oblivious as they pass through a demonstration zone for a telecommunications technology on the cutting edge. Small transceivers mounted on lampposts and bolted to rooftops along the route form the backbone of an electronic "mesh" - a high-speed, wireless communications web that allows properly equipped travelers to surf the Internet and place phone calls. The roadside web is a showcase for MeshNetworks Inc.'s signature technology.

Driving up the private circular drive — after passing through the gated entrance, of course — you'd be forgiven for feeling that you'd suddenly entered a more rustic area. The French country-style exterior of the home sitting on three secluded acres in Howard County is misleading, though. Inside, you'll find all the modern amenities. Built in 2009, the five-bedroom home at 7031 Pindell School Road in Fulton boasts geothermal heating and cooling systems. The kitchen has high-end appliances, including two dishwashers and an extra ice maker.

What is the best gutter cover? The mesh-type gutter guard seems like it has promise. For years I have been testing many different gutter guards. Some have done well, others not so well, and quite a few have failed miserably. The common problem is that small debris, such as tree blossoms, seedpods and pine needleschokes the guards. Even if the gutter covers don't get clogged, debris often gets carried into the gutter, where it turns into layers of organic muck. Many companies claim that once their product is installed, a homeowner will never have to clean the gutters.

Sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin tweeted today that he's returning for another year at College Park . That's great news for Stoglin's development, but is it great news for the Terps? Stoglin gradually grew on me this season. At the beginning of the year I posted a blog about whether Stoglin was going to become the next Greivis Vasquez or the next John Gilchrist. At the time, I thought he was leaning toward Gilchrist - a talented player who thought he was better than he really was and would bring an average Maryland team down.

One month from today, William Jefferson Clinton will be sworn in as president of the United States.One month and one day from today, he is supposed to offer his prescription for the rescue of the economy from the morass of Reagan-Bush budget deficits, trade imbalances, wealth maldistribution, recession, slow growth, credit crunch, education neglect, untrained workforce, uncompetitiveness and just about every other ill in the liberal lexicon.Rarely has there been such a buildup for a policy decision whose outlines have been so thoroughly signaled in advance.

Two summers ago, when northern snakeheads set up housekeeping in Crofton, I suggested holding a tournament to thin out the herd rather than turning that scummy little pond into a scene from Apocalypse Now. Flip ahead to summer 2004. More than a dozen snakeheads have been hooked in the Potomac River (no doubt because it's a shorter commute to D.C.) and someone finally has made my dopey idea a reality. Can a UPN TV show be far behind? Hard to believe, but Friday's the day for the 2004 Snakehead Roundup from 8:30 to 11 a.m. out of two marinas: Belle Haven and Columbia Island.

Q: I recently inherited a Victorian-era oak bed that's so fabulous that I have to find a way to make it look at ease in our bedroom. The bed is truly gargantuan, however, and it really overwhelms the box-like room. Would it help to paint over the medium stain of the oak? Is there any other treatment that might make the bed seem more in keeping with its surroundings?A: I wouldn't tamper with the finish of such a wonderful piece. Instead, you should try to lighten up the room itself and give it a look that's at least vaguely Victorian.

Mozart had a very earthy side, as any perusal of his unabridged letters will reveal, but his music invariably touches the sky. Sibelius was pretty much a down-to-earth guy, too, and that's where his music stays, with the feel of soil and rock in it. The latest Baltimore Symphony Orchestra program contrasts the heavenly beauty of form and melody in Mozart with the craggy topography and shadowed emotions in Sibelius. Putting each composer into perspective is Gunther Herbig, a seasoned conductor who can be counted on for calm command and a firm sense of style.

Some group shows have stars, some don't. "Art Howar County 1993," a show of 31 works by 13 artists, definitely has a star in Felicia Belair-Rigdon.Her mixed-media works on paper combine reproductions of existing works, many of them lush color photographs, with Belair-Rigdon's own drawing.What results is a non-specific milieu that makes the images look as if they were blowing in on a wind of history.The point of such works as "From a Long Time Ago" or "They Went Over the Roll Call of His Pretensions" seems to be that men seek satisfaction and salvation from actions in the external world, while women know that true meaning comes from within.

It was just a few years ago that St. Mary's had about six wrestlers. Then came coach Dave Hicks, who began rebuilding the program. Then, last season, the team got an emotional boost from school and athletic support groups that combined their resourses to buy the team its first new wrestling mat in decades, and the Saints were on their way. Saturday, at the Maryland Independent Schools state wrestling tournament, St. Mary's won the MIAA...

Does Pastor Oxentenko's God condone men of the cloth being disingenuous? Or maybe the pastor "forgot" his current building plan (which scores of residents testified against a few months ago) is for two buildings totaling 84,000 square feet on a 40,000-square-foot footprint (filed Aug. 13, 2010), twice the square footage of his previous (July 28, 2005) plan? This is quite contrary to his assurances to the Laurel Leader "they have scaled their plans down from two buildings for the church and school encompassing 72,000 square feet, to a single multilevel building with a 28,000-square-foot circumference" ("County Council, church dispute rages on," Leader, Sept.

In last season's march to the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association championship, No. 2 Archbishop Curley relied on three key elements to put away opponents - a rugged defense, an opportunistic offense that did not squander scoring chances, and the desire to win every loose ball. Although the Friars were under pressure for much of yesterday's conference opener at Loyola, they showed much of the same tenacity and scoring prowess for a 3-1 victory. Sophomore forward Mikias Teketele led Curley with two goals and Bash Kamara tallied the other, as the Friars withstood a furious second-half rally by the Dons.

Douglass guard James Walker heard from the critics before the start of the season. The word was that the Ducks were going to struggle after having lost key players to graduation. "They started out as whispers," said Walker, adding that the whispers eventually became shouts. Not even a 14-0 start by No. 7 Douglass could quiet the noise. "Even though we're undefeated, people still say, `You haven't played anybody,' " said Walker, who, along with junior backcourt mate Omar Strong, a first-year starter, have sparked the Ducks' fast start.

The Ravens will play their third preseason game tonight against the Minnesota Vikings, and everyone on the defensive line is confident and at ease. This is no time to panic, just time to start playing. It's hard to remember any big plays made by a Ravens defensive lineman in the first two games. Think about it. Nothing from Trevor Pryce. Nothing from Terrell Suggs. Rookie tackle Haloti Ngata looked slow in his debut last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the only player to make any impact has been tackle Kelly Gregg.

AS MANY OLDER WORKERS DELAY retirement, employers are scrambling to reconcile the work styles and values of the people who still use Cross pens and those who demand Blackberrys. Many workplaces now routinely host as many as four generations of employees. There are the baby boomers, born from 1946 to 1964, and the Gen Xers, born from 1965 to 1980. To either end are the traditionalists, born in the late 1930s and early 1940s, and the millennials, born from 1981 to 2000. One of the biggest challenges is getting everyone on the same page, er, screen.
