From: Napa Valley, Calif. Price: $22 Serve with: Caviar, hors d'ouvres, shellfish This California sparkling wine comes so close to the elegance and character of a fine brut Champagne that it's questionable whether it's worth paying a premium for the French version. It's a full-bodied style with fine penetration and persistence. It offers yeasty, toasty flavors reminiscent of Champagne, with perhaps just a touch more fruit flavor coming through. Mumm Napa has long been one of the better spinoffs of a Champagne brand, and it hasn't lost its edge.

A pair of du Pont cousins, one in love with a woman and the other devoted to plants, used their vast family fortune to create a pair of mansions within minutes of each other in the Brandywine Valley, but from two very different worlds. Alfred I. du Pont, who grew up among the "powder men" his father employed and used his genius to expand the family's explosives business and save it from sale, poured his heart and a considerable fortune into building Nemours, which takes its inspiration from Marie Antoinette's Petit Trianon at Versailles and is a tribute to the family's French heritage.

High school seniors who want to go to a selective college next fall should already be making arrangements to take the tests they will need before they apply ahead of the deadlines for such schools, which are usually in January or February. One of the consequences of taking these tests is that if you do well, you may be deluged with literature from colleges and universities all across the country. Some students may feel flattered that Harvard, Yale or MIT seems to be dying to have them apply.

LAUREL -- When the $750,000 International is run today at Laurel Race Course, it will present a marked contrast to earlier renewals.Since 1952, when former Laurel owner John Schapiro created it, the race has gotten a new distance and name. Its contestants use more sophisticated travel schedules and training patterns. And it has been placed in a new spot in racing's unofficial pecking order.In 1986, the turf race was shortened from 1 1/2 miles to 1 1/4 miles. Two years later, the Washington D.C. International became the Budweiser International.

Organizers of the charitable Half Full Triathlon are thrilled Lance Armstrong will compete in their October Howard County race. But critics in the sports community aren't sharing their enthusiasm. Because Armstrong has been banned for life from all sports governed by federations, organizers of the 3-year-old Half Full had to give up their status as a sanctioned race to welcome him, losing the prestige that comes with that status and opening the door to critics who say Armstrong's tarnished reputation stains the event.

Prestige or prop? My friends Kevin and Chad raised this question this morning on the Facebook page for their blog, My 1-2-3 Cents, as it pertains to championships within WWE. It's not hard to find a legion of people who believe the same titles once held by wrestling legends like Harley Race, Ric Flair and Bruno Sammartino have been devalued and turned into something resembling a toy. Often times, it seems WWE wants to play a rousing game...

For some of us, the pain of the dual tragedies of Yeardley Love and George Huguely is intensified by the fact that both children are so familiar to us. Raise your hand if you have spent any part of your child's life caught in the lacrosse whirlwind that sweeps through Maryland each spring. And summer. And fall ball. And the winter indoor league. It is something that ordinary civilians might not comprehend (though ballet parents or horse show parents might sympathize). Lacrosse can be a toxic mix of parental ambition and peer pressure.

There are a lot of potential advantages and few disadvantages to the idea floated this week by Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller to merge the University of Maryland-College Park with the University of Maryland-Baltimore. The two institutions' missions are completely complementary, and together they would form a real national research powerhouse. That would bode well for the institution's ability to attract grant money and top academic talent. Yet because of the nature of UMB, such a merger would be unlikely to upset its students or alumni, who are prone to identify with their schools as part of the University of Maryland — no geographic modifier needed.

Black & Decker Corp., the Towson-based toolmaker founded here almost 100 years ago, said Monday that it plans to merge with The Stanley Works in a $4.5 billion all-stock deal that will bring together internationally known brands but reduce the number of local jobs. For the Baltimore region, it is another in a long line of deals relocating corporate headquarters - and the decision-making power, charitable muscle and prestige they represent. Stanley would have controlling interest in the combined company, which would be named Stanley Black & Decker and headquartered in New Britain, Conn.

Prestige Cable Television has made great strides since it began broadcasting area sporting events in 1988.The production is sharper, the announcers better and the breadth of events broadcast improved. The cable network even has added a sports segment to its regular Monday through Friday night newscasts.But one major element is missing in the coverage of local sports -- diversity of high school coverage.Basically, Prestige event coverage has been limited to a handful of high school events -- football, boys basketball and the state wrestling tournament.

Constellation Energy's glass-encased office building will still host conference calls. Executives will buy lunch for clients. The charity golf game will go on. Much will survive the looming takeover of Baltimore's last Fortune 500 company. But the city, some say, is in store for a significant, if ephemeral, loss: prestige. If Des Moines-based MidAmerican Energy Holding Co.'s plans go forward, home-grown Constellation goes from Baltimore big shot to a box somewhere in the middle of Warren Buffett's vast organization chart.
