It's been a busy three years for Marta Ines Quintana, owner of Towson's Havana Road. There's her thriving catering business, a line of fully prepared packaged dinners Quintana developed for supermarket sales, and a cookbook and television show - both are works in progress that will showcase traditional Cuban restaurants as well as Quintana's contemporary spins on them. You might think all of that would distract Quintana from the restaurant itself - a bright spot on a drab Pennsylvania Avenue dining strip.

Hereford footbal coach Steve Turnbaugh didn't need to tell his team what it needed to grab a spot in the postseason playoff picture after opening the season with three straight losses -- the first such streak of his illustrious 19-year career at his alma mater. Running the table in the final seven games - including his last home game at the helm of his beloved Bulls in the regular season Nov. 1 against Owings Mills at 7 p.m. - would most likely give them a chance to qualify for the Class 2A North Region playoffs.

What could be better than watching the Baltimore Orioles pound the New York Yankees 11-3 on a summer's night? How about watching the Orioles pound the Yankees on a telecast on Fox. I'm not here to put down MASN. I've had a lot of pleasure watching the O's this year on our regional sports network. (Read a piece I wrote last week about MASN's winning ratings here .) But I have to say the direction and camera work Saturday night for the Fox telecast featuring Joe Buck on play-by-play and Tim McCarver as analyst were outstanding.

Handing out individual awards can be a delicate affair as there is usually some gray area for interpretation and analysis. But it would seem that few would be able to question the individual honors announced by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association on Friday morning. For the second time in his career, Rob Pannell of Cornell was named the winner of the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award, which is given to the Outstanding Player of the Year. The fifth-year senior attackman has 95 points -- which is 10 shy of the school's single-season record -- and 337 career points -- which is six short of former Duke attackman Matt Danowski's NCAA mark.
