A runaway goat that sparked a school closure, rammed a car, leaped several fences to evade apprehension and triggered plenty of buzz in the Sykesville area for nearly a week has been captured and is resting comfortably at an animal shelter in Westminster. Nicky Ratliff, executive director of the Humane Society of Carroll County, said an animal control officer found and subdued the goat - a 100-pound ram with black fur, brown horns and symmetrical white markings on his face - late Thursday afternoon after a resident called in to report a sighting.

Although some basketball fans can think of no one less fortunate than Atlanta Hawks center Theo Ratliff, traded from the Eastern Conference champion Philadelphia 76ers to the rebuilding Hawks, Ratliff says he is concerned with the truly less fortunate. To raise money to help some of them, Ratliff plans to hold the first Champions for the Community Charity Basketball Game on July 7 at the Baltimore Arena. The game, to benefit the Associated Black Charities, will be played by two teams of top NBA players from around the league.

For four years, Tom Ratliff had one favorite conversation piece: his silver airplane. He built it rivet by rivet in a shed near his Salisbury home. When he didn't have a tool, he would fashion one himself. And when people came to visit, they could count on getting an update on the progress that the retired NASA engineer was making on the homemade airplane. "He was talking about it all time," said his wife, Becky. "He built it from sheets of aluminum. Every rivet he put in himself." On Tuesday, the 80-year-old Ratliff invited four friends - two with video cameras - to a tiny private airfield near Pittsville, where they expected to watch him fly his Hummel Bird about 10 feet off the ground.

Colleagues count on Carolyn "Nicky" Ratliff to liven a stodgy meeting with a droll tale of an errant bull or marauding pigs. She has created media forums to find homes for bedraggled, unusual and aging pets. And she willingly matches wits with anyone. So when Carroll's Community Access Television sought an anchor for its live talk show on animals, the staff figured Ratliff, director of the Carroll County Humane Society, would fit the role perfectly. The station's first live show premiered last week, with Ratliff as host and animal trainer Laura Totis as her first guest.

Several key matchups figure to loom large in Saturday's tilt between No. 1 Loyola and No. 3 Maryland, but one of the more intriguing individual clashes pits two of the best long-stick midfielders in the country. Senior Scott Ratliff for the Greyhounds (2-0) and senior Jesse Bernhardt for the Terps (2-0) are renowned for their relentless pressure on defense and their willingness to turn defense into offense. Bernhardt said he's looking forward to seeing his counterpart on the field, but he also recognizes that their competition will pale in comparison to the final outcome.

The success of Ratliff and fellow Georgia natives Darius Bowling and Rick Lewis - both at Ohio State - has garnered the interest of a younger generation of lacrosse players in the Peach State.
