Competition and sluggish sales have contributed to the closing of a Liberty Road business once heralded as one of the largest record stores in the country.The supermarket-size Record Theatre, long a hub of the Liberty Crest Shopping Center at Liberty and Croydon roads, closed recently and dismissed its 20 employees.The closing came eight months after the store received a new facade through a county street- scape program aimed at improving the appearance of commercial areas in older communities.

Of paramount concern to Blast coach Danny Kelly are the injuries that have beset his roster, but another cause for worry has cropped up as well. "If we want to make the playoffs, we have to win on the road, and that's tough to do," Kelly said. "It's much more difficult to beat a team at their place." His words rang true Thursday night when the last-place California Cougars - a foe the Blast blasted in Baltimore, 22-6, only five days earlier - survived a late comeback to secure a 12-10 victory in Stockton, Calif.

It's Sunday in Indianapolis, and the Division I men's basketball committee must decide who gets the last of the 33 at-large invitations to the NCAA tournament. Chairman Bob Bowlsby calls for the "nitty-gritty" on the potential candidates, a list of 13 quantitative measurements that could decide who's in and who's out. Maryland could provide the biggest paradox. The Terps are 2-6 against teams ranked 51 through 100 in the ratings percentage index (RPI), but 3-4 against the top 50, thanks to their sweep of Duke.

Quote: "The Phillies curse is off. That's what I'm most happy about. Well, maybe it's not off, but at least it's delayed. Ever since they released me, they've put a hex on me. Now maybe it's lifted." - Cincinnati pitcher Steve Parris after defeating Philadelphia yesterday. It's a fact: The Reds are the only team in the majors to have a losing home record (31-34) and a winning road record (31-30). Who's hot: San Francisco's Livan Hernandez pitched his second straight four-hit shutout Wednesday night with a 5-0 win over Florida.

Consumers might complain about hefty prices at the gas pump, but they're not letting the cost get in the way of going on vacation. Though gasoline prices are expected to be the highest ever for a Memorial Day holiday, the official start to the summer vacation season, travelers plan to hit the road in record numbers this weekend, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic. Some hotels and resorts are offering gas rebates as incentives, but a number of them say they're doing it more for promotion than from fear of empty hotel rooms.
