Patrick Duffy knows what it's like to step out of a shadow and try to carve an individual identity. Duffy knows because his path to cross country was created, in part, by his older brother Billy, a standout at Dulaney whose accomplishments on 3.1-mile courses earned him a spot on the All-Baltimore County team for three straight years and a position on the Bucknell University cross country team. "Everyone always asks me, `Are you going to be as fast as your brother?' " said Patrick Duffy, a sophomore at Dulaney.

Whatever you thought of the original "Dallas"  on CBS, you have to admit it spoke to its times like few other pop culture artifacts of the 1980s. In the Reagan era with its celebration of McMansions, corporations and de-regulated savings & loan presidents who got rich by stealing from their elderly clients, why wouldn't J.R. Ewing become the most popular character in prime time drama? Was any character more an embodiment of 1980's values? But why in the world would anyone think it was a good idea to revisit that turf again in 2012, simply repeating the same conflicts, themes and values almost note for note as they were first sounded some 34 years ago?

If it's true that you can tell a lot about a society by its celebrities, what does it say about us that Patrick Duffy is ZTC becoming one of our biggest stars?This is something we should worry about, I think.Duffy's new sitcom, "Step by Step," is the second highest-rated new show of the season, and tonight at 9 (Channel 2) NBC trusts him to carry Danielle Steele's "Daddy" against game four of the World Series on CBS.While Duffy is surprisingly good at comedy on "Step by Step," he is not much of a dramatic actor.

This is a big week on television for the return of former Texas oilmen who walk with a swagger and wear what some call a sneer. First, President Bush held a rare news conference Thursday after his re-election, and now comes J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) tomorrow night on CBS in Dallas Reunion: Return to Southfork. Actually, it's not a reunion show. To qualify as one of those, a majority of cast members have to appear in character in a new story line, according to The Complete Directory of Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows.

"Step by Step," a sitcom premiering at 8:30 tonight on ABC (Channel 13), turns out to be much better than expected. But then, we weren't expecting much.In fact, we were expecting the worst: Noted bimbo Suzanne Somers ("Three's Company") and noted poker face Patrick Duffy ("Dallas") in a domestic comedy from the same producers who gave us "Full House."But Ms. Somers and Mr. Duffy triumph over their stereotypes, and are supported by a excellent cast of actors who play their six children. "Step by Step" proves to be a superior example of the Friday-night light genre ABC has done so well.

All Emma Larkin was hoping for was a top-five finish at the Baltimore County cross country championships. What she got was a whole lot better. The Dulaney freshman stunned a field that included Towson junior Lauren Capone, Franklin junior Michelle Donadio and Perry Hall junior Amy Morlock to capture her first county title yesterday at Dulaney. Larkin's victory highlighted the No. 3 Lions' run to their 15th straight team crown. The No. 7 Dulaney boys squad grabbed its sixth consecutive championship.

Lauren Capone crashed Dulaney's party. At the Baltimore County cross country championships at Dulaney yesterday, the host Lions had the opportunity to sweep the team and individual crowns for the second time in three years. But Capone, a sophomore from Towson, dashed those hopes by winning the girls title in convincing fashion on Dulaney's 3.1-mile course. Still, the hosts took three titles as the No. 6 girls team captured a county-record 14th consecutive county championship, the No. 2 boys squad took home a fourth straight county crown and senior Jason Jura claimed the boys individual title.

Dulaney coach Chad Boyle wore a big grin after his boys scored an impressive win at yesterday's Baltimore County championship meet. But when asked about if his girls could complete the sweep, Boyle's expression quickly changed. "It could be tough," he said. He needn't have worried. Dulaney's Natalie Bond won the race, the Lions placed five runners in the top nine and had an easier time than expected in winning their 13th straight county title on a windy afternoon at Hereford. The string sets a Baltimore County record.

Perhaps the one person shocked most by Dwight Parker's victory in the Barnhardt Memorial Invitational at Dulaney yesterday was Parker himself. The Woodlawn sophomore had intended to keep up with a group of leaders that included Bel Air senior Brett Kelly, Dulaney sophomore Vince Walsh and Perry Hall senior Jesse Jaeger. But when no one grabbed the lead outright, Parker turned on the juice at the two-mile mark and cruised to the finish line in 16 minutes, 26.75 seconds. "I wasn't expecting to get first," said Parker, who broke the course record of 16:29 set by Dulaney's Jason Jura.

As the host of the Barnhardt Memorial Invitational for 21 years, the Dulaney boys cross country team figured tradition would be on its side. That assumption proved correct as the No. 8 Lions defeated No. 1 Bel Air by one point for the team championship yesterday. Dulaney earned 38 points off top-15 showings from senior Jason Jura (second place in 16 minutes, 52.8 seconds), senior Travis Knox (third, 16:53.5), junior Patrick Duffy (fourth, 17:02.8), senior Chris May (14th, 17:57.0) and sophomore Matt Bond (15th, 17:59.
