Stevenson has already beaten one of two teams that shared last year's Middle Atlantic Conference title and will go for the sweep with a visit to Lycoming on Saturday. The Mustangs (4-0, 3-0 in the league) defeated Lebanon Valley, 20-14, two weeks ago, but coach Ed Hottle admitted that tangling with the Warriors, who have won 15 league championships, is the litmus test of the season. “They're the big dog in the conference,” Hottle said Wednesday. “They're the defending conference champion, and they're the team we aspire to be. They're perennially very good in the conference, they're well-coached, they're big and physical, they don't make mistakes.

Checking on the status of the proposed shopping center down the street or that 400-unit housing project across the county may be as easy as flipping on your personal computer if Carroll County development review officials have their way."We already have a comprehensive tracking system that the public can use, but our goal is to make it available as an on-line service," said Franklin G. Schaeffer, chief of the Bureau of Development Review. "We would like to make it so you can call in, sign on and access the information."

The defensive line was supposed to be a major strength for the Ravens last year after they signed veterans  Chris Canty  and  Marcus Spears  and then used a third-round pick on  Brandon Williams . It didn't work out that way. The group didn't perform poorly by any means, but the defense finished 11th   against the run and didn't generate a lot of pass rush from the interior defensive line beyond the work of  Arthur Jones...

WASHINGTON -- The Commerce Department is suggesting that the nation's copyright laws be strengthened to protect "content" on the information highway -- including a recommendation that the theft of more than $5,000 of copyright material on-line be made a criminal offense.In a 250-page report released yesterday, the Commerce Department also said Congress should make it illegal for people to produce or use any technology whose main purpose is to defeat copy protection or use restrictions for on-line work.

When I decided to enter the gothic arena, it was almost a birthright. After all, Transylvania, where I was born, gave the world Dracula and Ceausescu. And that's only two dark figures in a region that teems with them.When a Transylvanian child grows up, he or she gets to view the pantheon of this inheritance and choose a ghastly figure to take into the world. It provides the child with an advantage, a head start.I chose Countess Elisabeth Bathory of Hungary, who is alleged to have bathed in the blood of 650 virgin girls in order to keep her beauty and insure her immortality.

Yesterday in one sentence: Germany and Ghana played to a thrilling 2-2 draw, leading me and many others to wonder whether this means the U.S., which played poorly and still beat Ghana 2-1, is better than I thought, or whether Portugal, who was smoked 4-0 by Germany, is just really bad. What's on tap: Belgium vs. Russia, 12 p.m., ABC; South Korea vs. Algeria, 3 p.m., ABC; United States vs. Portugal, 6 p.m, ESPN. What you'll see: You may understand why I'm particularly concerned with results that directly affect the U.S., which controls its own destiny in the Group of Death.

With $50 million a year in county revenues on the line, the U.S. Supreme Court said Tuesday it would hear a challenge to a ruling by Maryland's highest court that some taxes on out-of-state income are collected in violation of the Constitution. A Howard County business owner and his wife challenged the tax laws, arguing that they were being taxed twice on some income. The Maryland Court of Appeals agreed in a ruling last year, saying that the state's power to levy taxes on income earned outside its borders is limited.

There's a long list of goalies who have played for the Maryland men's lacrosse team without winning the sport's ultimate prize. Niko Amato doesn't want that list to grow this weekend. Amato is only the second starting goalkeeper in program history to guide his team to three Final Fours in four years. But Jake Reed is the only one to have been on national championship teams (1973 and 1975), and if Amato and the Terps don't end the school's title drought, Amato will join a group that includes Brian Dougherty, Kevin O'Leary and Brian Phipps.

Michael Duarte loves to lift weights and plays varsity baseball as a sophomore at Sparrows Point. Richie Martin is a self-proclaimed hamburger junkie who would rather hunt on Maryland's Eastern Shore than play sports for the Pointers. Despite their differences, the two teenagers set out together May 4 for a day on Dundee Creek in Gunpowder Falls State Park, sliding their white, 17-foot Ranger boat between two piers and into the murky brown water. Their chemistry was evident as soon as the boat hit the water.

When the Ravens came within striking distance of picking a viable offensive tackle during the NFL draft, the options disappeared. Demand for quality offensive tackles quickly outweighed the supply Thursday as four were taken ahead of the Ravens' selection in the first round, including Notre Dame's Zack Martin by the Dallas Cowboys one pick before the Ravens drafted inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. The Cowboys won a coin flip over the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine in February for the 16th overall pick.

I was hoping the Ravens would get Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin at No. 17 overall, but he went to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 16 instead. He could have helped the Ravens offensive line, easily the weakest unit on the team last season. A lot of scouts and draft experts thought Martin was a solid pick, very tough and versatile. The selection of Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is a good pick. Initially, I didn't like it because the Ravens needed more immediate help at both the offensive line and at free safety.

The first big shock of the Los Angeles earthquake had hardly subsided when thousands of computer users in California and across the nation dialed up their on-line services, looking for news and trying to make contact with relatives and friends.With regular long-distance voice lines blocked or curtailed, the on-line services -- with their own transcontinental networks -- became a conduit for Californians trying to tell outsiders that they were OK, and for families elsewhere trying to make contact with people in the earthquake zone.

The NFL's annual free-agency spending spree officially gets underway Tuesday, with the Ravens in a slightly different position than in the recent past. An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007.

For each of the first three games of the season, No. 3 Johns Hopkins sent out the same starting midfield. That formula changed in Saturday's 15-9 victory over then-No. 6 Princeton. Rather than sending junior Bronson Kelly to join senior Rob Guida and sophomore Connor Reed on the first line, the Blue Jays (4-0) opted to have sophomore Holden Cattoni team with Guida and Reed. The trio of Guida, Reed and Cattoni is not an unfamiliar grouping, according to coach Dave Pietramala. “In games up until the Princeton game, we've mixed and matched,” he said Wednesday.
