SAN FRANCISCO - Google Inc. co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin are relinquishing some of their control over the Internet search leader with the sale of 10 million shares worth $5.5 billion at current prices. Under a plan disclosed Friday, the longtime business partners will each sell 5 million Google shares during a five-year period that will start with the first trade. The sales will occur periodically to lessen the chances of hurting Google's stock price. Page and Brin, both 36, will remain Google's most influential shareholders.

Google Inc., the world's biggest Internet search provider, is widely expected to file papers this week that would declare its intention to raise billions of dollars in an initial public offering. But should it? An IPO can bring riches for employees and currency for acquisitions. It also can cause big headaches for management, prompt worker defections and put the company at the mercy of investors focused heavily on quarterly profit targets. And for a company as well-known and profitable as Google, analysts and industry executives said, the costs may outweigh the benefits.

Bryan and Michael Voltaggio might be highly accomplished chefs, but when their mom's birthday rolled around last week, she got a cake made from a mix. "I did bake a cake, but it's Betty Crocker," said Staci Rosenberger, kid sister to the Frederick natives competing in television's "Top Chef." The cake baking fell to Rosenberger because she and her mother live in the same city, Las Vegas. That happens to be where Bryan, Michael and other "Top Chef" competitors have been doing culinary battle, but filming for that is over.
