It's fitting that the guest list for Jeff Rimer's final show includes Orioles owner Peter Angelos, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda, boxing impresario Don King and Lord Alfred Hayes of the World Wrestling Federation.It's fitting, because at his best, Rimer, who closes the door on 10 years of Sports Line on WBAL (1090 AM) tonight, presented a blend of information and entertainment that was sometimes puzzling, sometimes wacky, but more often than not interesting."I'd like to think that people would tune in and get something they could enjoy.

There was never an issue he couldn't skirt, a fence he couldn't straddle, a wishy he couldn't washy and a hockey game he couldn't get to within an hour to provide play-by-play.Jeff Rimer developed as many detractors as he did fans during his decade-long stand as the sports director at WBAL Radio. Which, in the final analysis, tells you he did a bang-up job.Positively or negatively, people reacted to Rimer and his evening talk show, "Sports Line." They were rarely indifferent to the show, which is priority No. 1 for any ratings- and advertiser-driven program.

The crumbling of the Berlin Wall. The introduction of the new Coke.And, now, Jeff Rimer's departure.But we can't be dumbstruck by the shock of the new. Apollo gave way to the space shuttle. The demise of communism led to a new Europe. And somebody thought it was a good idea to bring back Fresca.In much the same way, WBAL Radio will hire a new sports talk host.

The case of the satellite dish that might be a backyard patio umbrella is closed in Crofton, and the dish will stand.The Crofton Civic Association's Architectural Review Committee has decided that Jeff Rimer's satellite dish looks so much like a patio umbrella that it fits right in with the neighborhood. The four-page decision ends a year-long dispute that split the Crofton Orchards section of the community, with some neighbors saying the dish must go, others saying it was not worth fighting about.

WBAL Radio, which led its newscasts yesterday morning with reports about the sale of the Orioles, said yesterday that the report was intended to say a sale to Cincinnati investors is likely, not that it has been completed.During yesterday's morning news program, Jeff Rimer, a sports reporter for the station, reported on developments in talks between businessman William O. DeWitt Jr. and Eli S. Jacobs, the team's current owner.In one report, Rimer said: "Months of speculation on the sale of the Orioles will soon end. WBAL Radio has learned Bill DeWitt Jr., leading the group of Cincinnati investors to purchase the Orioles, will buy the team for $135 million cash plus assume all deferred monies owed players, which I am told is not believed to be substantial."

Three homeowners in a Crofton development want the community association to take a neighbor to court over a satellite dish dressed up as a common deck umbrella.The dish violates the community's restrictive covenants because its owner never sought the approval of the association's architectural committee, the women have complained. And the association has a duty to enforce covenants.But lawyers for Jeff Rimer, the owner of the dish, argue that banning the dish would violate the First Amendment and a Federal Communications Commission regulation.

Uneasy lies the crown that leads the area in sports radio ratings.That crown is worn by WBAL station manager Jeff Beauchamp, whose station reigns in sports programming, thanks to its acquisition of the Orioles and University of Maryland football and men's basketball rights, along with 50,000 watts of radio power.But in the immediate and short term, wholesale changes could be in the wind, which could have a long-term bearing on how far the station stays in front of its competition.The station will be losing longtime talk-show host Jeff Rimer, who will leave WBAL (1090 AM)

The subject was sports talk shows, and John Oates wasn't talking.It wasn't surprising, for when your every move as manager of the Orioles is questioned nightly on three Baltimore radio stations, you can get a bit defensive. Oates doesn't know how to handle pitchers, said Bob from Pikesville. He takes too long to make personnel moves, contended Jim from Arbutus. Why doesn't he move Brady and Devo to the bottom of the lineup and lead off with Hammonds and Buford? asked Tom on his car phone.

What we have here is a three-way split among Baltimore radio's Titans of Talk -- Nestor Aparicio, Stan "The Fan" Charles and Jeff Rimer. There is a difference in philosophy.You probably suspected that, though. Rimer long ago revealed himself a Kantian, someone who holds that the content of knowledge comes a posteriori from sense perception, but its form is determined by a priori categories of the mind. Aparicio, of course, is a nihilist, denying the existence of any basis for knowledge or truth.

You've checked that Orioles schedule up on the refrigerator, and you're distraught.The problem is that the club closest to your heart -- not to mention your frozen foods -- is in a pennant race, and you're afraid of missing some of it. The original television schedule for the season shows a Channel 2 telecast tonight from Milwaukee, but then no TV until the Orioles return home in a week.Actually, things aren't that bleak. Home Team Sports has decided to pick up the entire series in Cleveland -- Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Take Thornton Wilder's "Our Town," inject a little rape and murder, spin the tale in the temporally discombobulated style of novelist William Faulkner, and you've pretty much got the gist of "The Rimers of Eldritch."The Lansford Wilson play is being presented this weekend by the Moonlight Troupers of Anne Arundel Community College.Someone has been raped in Eldritch, a small mountain town in the middle of Anywhere, U.S.A. Someone has been killed as well. But who? For what reasons? Under what circumstances?
