Legg Mason Inc.'s stock retreated Friday, a day after shares shot up on a report that the company's board rejected — at least for now — a proposal by senior managers at its affiliates and private equity investors to take the company private. The Baltimore-based money manager's stock rose by more than 3 percent Thursday, but Friday the stock dropped 32 cents to close at $26.52 per share. The decline was driven largely by newly released figures Friday showing that money continued to flow out of Legg funds in the last quarter, said Jeffrey Hopson, a senior analyst with Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. in St. Louis.

"PromeNOT," the lawn signs read. Whalen's family company Whalen Properties has become a heavyweight in Baltimore County over three decades with 11 projects - mostly medical and professional offices - under its belt.

Carol Carr showed all the signs of colorectal cancer seven years ago, but doctors thought the 44-year-old Glen Burnie woman was too young to have the disease and never tested her for it. Instead, they said her diarrhea, vomiting, cramping, iron deficiency and extreme fatigue were more likely caused by the flu, anxiety and even a brain disorder. Treatments for those illnesses failed and Carr got so sick she had to stop working. When she finally saw a specialist who ordered a colonoscopy she was suffering from Stage II colorectal cancer.

Oregon and Auburn, a combined 25-0, led by coaches Chip Kelly and Gene Chizik, are going to meet for the national title. Two years ago, not even the Psychic Network would have made that prediction. Kelly was Oregon's obscure offensive coordinator, possibly years from supplanting Mike Bellotti at the top. Chizik had just completed his second season at Iowa State. His record was 5-19. Things twisted dramatically when Kelly ascended to head coach after Bellotti abruptly resigned, and Auburn shockingly hired Chizik to replace Tommy Tuberville.

WASHINGTON -- As President Clinton prepares to commit U.S. forces to ending the bitter war or enforcing a shaky peace in the Balkans, he faces the predicament of trying to sell to an acutely skeptical public a policy that could cost lives.News analysis Mr. Clinton and his aides express clear recognition that this step could be an unavoidable part of the diplomatic process.Such action would require thorough consultation with Congress and communication with the U.S. public about the policy and the rationale behind it.Polls show that a majority of the public opposes U.S. military intervention in the Bosnian civil war, presenting Mr. Clinton with his most difficult public sales job yet. It also would have him making the case on another issue far afield from the domestic concerns that got him elected and that mean most to voters.

Maryland gasoline prices may not be as high as last summer, but they have risen faster than in any previous year. Since the beginning of the year, the average price of a gallon of regular gas in Maryland has increased 63 percent to $2.58 - a steeper climb than last year's march to a record $4.05, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic. The steady climb since the market bottomed out at $1.58 Jan. 2 has raised fears of a return to $3 or $4 gasoline. With gas prices up $1 per gallon since the beginning of the year, some Maryland families are feeling a pinch that even memories of last year's sky-high prices can't ease.
