CHICAGO - After nearly two years of intrigue, the billionaire Ricketts family has emerged as the winning bidder to purchase the Chicago Cubs from Tribune Co. for about $900 million, sources close to the situation said last night. The family will now complete negotiations with Tribune Co. The family edged out Chicago real-estate investor Hersch Klaff and New York private-equity investor Marc Utay, a Chicago native, for the chance to follow Tribune Co., the Chicago-based media conglomerate, as owners of the storied yet hard-luck franchise.

When we last left Charles Ricketts, he had escaped a harrowing encounter with the Baltimore City parking fine department. Or so it seemed. To recap: Ricketts, a Department of Defense worker who lives in Severn, had received a red light camera ticket that showed a dark-purple Dodge Caravan with the license plate M182782. Ricketts drives a dark-green Plymouth Voyager with a nearly identical plate - M182781. Over a 10-day period in April, Ricketts tried mightily to get the error corrected, spending hours on hold or trying to get through on the constantly busy lines at the city fine department, and making little progress once he did. The Sun published a story about his predicament, and five days later, Ricketts received a letter.

Larry Ricketts' friends tease him about being "Robot Man" since the 33-year-old Taneytown man became the first person in the United States to be protected against a fatal heart attack by a new high-tech defibrillator.The defibrillator is more efficient than earlier models in delivering an electrical shock to return an erratically beating heart to regular rhythm.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the device April 30. Three weeks later, Dr. Michael R. Gold, director of the cardiac electrophysiology service at University of Maryland Medical Center, implanted one in Ricketts' chest.

The game plan worked perfectly yesterday for No. 4 Perry Hall in the Class 4A North regional girls soccer final - score early and defend the lead. Lori Carpenter scored two opportunistic goals in the first 23 minutes and the defense took it from there, preserving a 2-0 victory over No. 11 Parkville for a second straight regional title. Led by sweeper Ashley Carroll, the Gators notched their ninth shutout to advance to Monday's state semifinals. Gators backs Katie Orlando, Sara Breidenbaugh, Allie Barreiro and Kristin Gauvin also did a great job keeping the Knights' speedy strikers Missy Rumbley and Sheree Geroux under wraps.

Members of Perry Hall's fourth-ranked girls soccer team entered yesterday's game at No. 12 Parkville knowing a victory wasn't a must. Unbeaten in Baltimore County Division I, the defending county champion Gators already had clinched a berth in next Wednesday's title game against Loch Raven. But one thing kept the Gators from simply packing it in when Parkville's Kimberleigh Vaughan ruined their bid for their ninth shutout with the game's initial goal: The neighborhood rivalry. "A lot of the players know each other, so there's a little pride," said sixth-year Perry Hall coach Brad Kressman.
