When hearth and home - together with a growing family and an onsite family business - are at the center of day-to-day living, a small and dated one-story farmhouse in Ellicott City begins to burst at the seams. To keep their extended family under one roof while preserving the one-bathroom house built in 1954, the Harbin and Taylor families found the only solution was to build additions. "My mom and uncle were raised on the original farm down the road," Kim Harbin Taylor said. "That house was on 18 acres, and they farmed an additional 44, raising sweet corn and tomatoes.

Harford Tech wrestler Mike Long is nicknamed Harry Potter for his likeness to the popular child wizard of book and movie fame. "It doesn't bother me," said Long, who was born in Hollywood, has a toothy smile and a crescent-shaped scar on his forehead in an area similar to Potter's. "It's a compliment. Hey, at times in matches, I wish I had a magic wand." The freshman's efforts in yesterday's bout had more to do with skill than magic as he won a possible preview of the 103-pound Harford County title matchup, 5-3, on an overtime takedown against last year's runner-up Eric Brown (4-2)

As they quietly filed out of the Harford Tech gymnasium, many Eastern Tech fans shook their heads in disbelief. For their Mavericks, the loss nearly defied description. But the scoreboard told the story: No. 4 Harford Tech 54, No. 10 Eastern Tech 9. "It was a really bad night," said a nearly speechless Chris Clark, a former state runner-up who was taken down with 26 seconds left in his 5-3 loss to unbeaten Josh Taylor. "They came with a lot of intensity," said Clark, ranked sixth at 152 pounds.

Harford Tech's Chris Bigdeli knows as much about losing as he does about winning, having done equal amounts of each this season at the 145-pound weight class. Last night, the senior wrestler earned what he called "one of the most important wins of my high school career," evening his record at .500 during a milestone victory for the third-ranked Cobras. Bigdeli's second-period pin of No. 4-ranked Chesapeake's Alex Calhoun sparked a decisive five-bout sweep as the visiting Cobras (8-0) gave the Anne Arundel County powerhouse its first dual-meet defeat this season, 41-30.

There was actually a time when being public enemy No. 1 in Harford County wrestling gyms bothered Gary Siler. Now, the Harford Tech coach accepts the attention as the sincerest form of flattery. "When we were at the bottom, people were making fun of us. But now, we're on top and everybody wants to be us," Siler said. "I've always said that when you're at the top, you're under the microscope. When you're at the bottom, nobody cares." Almost everybody seems to care or have an opinion about the Cobras these days.

It was a friendship that started with a headlock, not a handshake. When Harford Tech senior Brad Dreyer first met future teammate Mike Taylor at a wrestling practice six years ago, the two became instant adversaries. "I'll never forget, it was my first day of rec wrestling and he'd been wrestling for like five years," said Dreyer, The Sun's fourth-ranked 140-pounder. "I didn't know what I was doing, but I gave him a hard time when we were wrestling. I think he was a little angry, and he threw me in a headlock when I wasn't looking.

Mount St. Joseph 125-pounder Jon Kohler and 145-pounder Jake Bohn proved at the inaugural Mount Mat Madness Tournament last night that taking your lumps while wrestling a tough schedule pays off. Kohler, a ninth-seeded sophomore, scored a 10-6 upset of Chopticon's Michael Cannon, who finished fourth at last year's 4A-3A state tournament. No. 7 seed Bohn, a freshman, escaped in the final 15 seconds of his 3-2 win over Mike Kessler of Owings Mills, who was third at last year's 2A-1A states.
