Frances and Ruth Brown were avid Orioles fans, raised guinea hens on their Woodstock farm and were known as firm but caring teachers during a combined 97 years of educating Howard County students. Such details may seem small, but they are the beginning of what a group of volunteers at the Howard County Conservancy say they hope will become a fully formed picture of the sisters. The Browns preserved the 232-acre farm that became home to the conservancy, but left little information about themselves.

It's a day for short newspaper stories, one paragraph each and no elaborate documentation. As Ross Perot tells nosy reporters who want to see his economic plan, "If I had known you wanted that, I would have brought my charts."* In a box showing what else the Orioles $173 million price tag could buy, The Sun listed National Premium beer at what amounted to $6,500 a case. The good-natured brewery sent The Sun a free case of beer with a bill for $6,500 and a discount of $6,500. The Sun doesn't like to accept gifts like that, so the beer was auctioned off inside and the winning $12 bid was donated to Our Daily Bread, a soup kitchen for the homeless.
