Radio personality Samuel Michael Anderson - known on-air as "Mike Roberts" - died at an area hospice Feb. 17 from complications of cancer. He was 54. Mr. Anderson worked in the radio business for more than 30 years, both on-air and behind the scenes in Baltimore and Washington. He retired from Radio One in December due to health issues. Mr. Anderson could do just about any job at a radio station and excelled in multiple roles, said Tim Watts, midday host on Radio One's Magic 95.9 FM. Before he died, Mr. Anderson was a coordinator for the AM stations that were sister stations to Magic 95.9, and the two carpooled to work.

Mike Roberts is a baseball coach to the core. So when asked before yesterday's Orioles opener how he would like to celebrate the return of his son, Brian, from a horrific elbow injury, he had a simple idea. "For me, the biggest celebration would be to see him steal second base and slide in headfirst," the former University of North Carolina coach said. Well, the second baseman didn't fulfill his dad's request perfectly. But he came close. On his first at-bat, he sent a grounder up the middle, and as he saw the play would be close, he dived into first base to beat the throw.

Liberty coach Scott Kohr said things came rather easily for his basketball team last night once it discovered how to play with a lead."We've been behind so much this season that we were still playing with that mentality in the third quarter, even though we had a seven-point lead," said Kohr. "I told them during our first timeout in the third quarter that what we were doing was OK. Just keep it up."The Lions did that and a lot more against North Carroll, winning, 79-58, in a Central Maryland Conference game at Liberty.
