Nearly 30 years after they first met while living in the same East Baltimore housing project, and 20 years after they left Dunbar to play college basketball, Rodrick Harrison and Rodney Elliott are back in their hometown with a new dream. Harrison, the second-year coach at Mount Zion Prep, and Elliott, one of his assistants, are trying to give players who didn't have the grades or game coming out of high school a chance to do what they did. Harrison, who played at UMBC and was later an assistant coach at Dunbar, and Elliott, who played at Maryland before embarking on a 13-year professional career spent mostly in Europe, teamed last year with the Mount Zion Baptist Christian School in Northeast Baltimore to provide the academic support and basketball guidance for a dozen or so players each year.

Perhaps Mount Zion, a team rated No. 2 in the country by USA Today, and boasting a Division I prospect who expects to turn pro in June, was simply too tall an order for St. Frances.At any rate, there would be no heroic finish by Mark Karcher, who, along with his teammates, played in their third game in as many nights, losing last night's Northwest Bracket title game of the Charm City Classic, 70-63, before 4,217 at the Towson Center at Towson State.The Panthers (22-5), who on Thursday got Karcher's buzzer-beating three-pointer to edge St. John's Prospect Hall, 75-74, in the Charm City semifinal, and on Friday downed Catholic League-rival Loyola, kept it close against the taller Warriors (20-1)

1867: SCHOOL FOR `COLORED PEOPLE' On Oct. 26, 1867, Joseph Peaker and several trustees of the Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church arranged to build "a school for the colored people of Havre de Grace." The Anderson Institute was built on Stokes Street on land that Peaker inherited from his father, Cupid Peaker, and sold to the trustees. Though the institute no longer stands, the Hosanna School remained in its place for many years. Cupid Peaker and his sons Joseph and James were at the forefront of the struggle for equality in Harford County.

For almost a century, a bridge on Mount Zion Road carried travelers over Piney Run as they made their way across the northern Baltimore County countryside. These days, however, sawhorses with bright orange stripes block drivers from the crossing, and cars are detoured to other rural roads. Something has to be done about the aging and deteriorating bridge, everyone seems to agree. But some say that the bigger bridges the county plans to build on small country roads don't fit the setting.

Terrence Jennings, a 6-foot-10 power forward and five-star recruit at Mount Zion Christian Academy in Durham, N.C., has withdrawn his oral commitment to Maryland and wants to reopen his recruiting process, his high school coach said yesterday. "It's a surprise to me," Mount Zion coach Tony Fozard said. "He wanted to open up his decision. It's a decision him and his father decided to do. I'm leaving it in their hands." Fozard said Jennings still has the Terps No. 1 on his list and that he will make an official visit in October for Maryland Madness, when the Terps officially begin practice.

They had never flown on an airplane, tossed a snowball or tasted macaroni and cheese. Upon their arrival in Maryland, 10 teenage girls from an orphanage in Namibia discovered a world in stark contrast to their homeland, where hunger and illiteracy prevail and losing parents to disease or war is a daily reality. "When we lived outside the children's home, we didn't receive care," said Annia Moyo, 15. "It was hard, with never enough to eat." Ranging in age from 13 to 16, the girls live in Children of Zion Village, a 17-acre farm near Katima Mulilo, a small town near the Namibian border with Angola, Zambia and Botswana.

As a girl growing up in Annapolis, Callie Marita Johnson-Matthews saw her father sitting up late at night working on sermons and comforting and advising neighbors who had come into trouble. He was, she said, an old-time pastor; the community was his congregation. It was not the kind of work she saw for herself. "Ministry is hard, and I never had a desire to be in ministry," she said. "But I believed I might have had a call in my teen years, but I just couldn't figure out what it was." Several decades later, Johnson-Matthews answered that quiet call and in 2005 became the first woman to head Mount Zion United Methodist Church in Annapolis.

The nonprofit group All Kids Can Learn International is offering a seminar next weekend for people from all religious and professional backgrounds on how to help orphans in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere. "When you take all the skills that have been built into a person over the years, all of them can be put to use in third-world countries," said Benedict Schwartz, the chief executive officer of the Harford County-based All Kids Can Learn International, which bought the farm last month.

He readily admits he's unprepared for the life he's chosen. But McGrady said once it was obvious he'd be a top 15 pick, he never thought twice."I'm not ready. But I'm going to be ready," McGrady said. "Some struggle forever to get there. I always wanted to be a lottery pick."

Lauren Guy perused about 20 evening gowns hanging on a dress rack. The 17-year-old gathered a handful of satiny material on a long, yellow, two-piece formal and rubbed it between her fingers. She held up the skirt to check its fullness, looked at the bodice and moved on to a light-green dress hanging beside it. "I wore a light-green dress to the last dance, so I really like this one," she said. "But I like the dark colors the best." The considerations swirling around Guy's head are familiar to any teen girl on the annual quest for prom attire: What do I wear?
