ESSEX, CONN. -- This is a story about an East Coast investor named Stan and a woman named Mabel who lived in a small trailer on 200 acres in West Virginia. There's no point to the story, really. I met Stan at the Griswold Inn, an 18th-century hostelry and watering spot in this small town on the Connecticut River, where we were both staying over the holiday weekend. He told me the tale of Mabel while we were smoking outside the Griz, as the place is locally known. Quotes here are not direct because I wasn't taking notes.

Former Loyola University soccer great Stan Koziol, who also played briefly for the Blast in an eight-year professional career, passed away Monday morning after battling leukemia. He was 48. Koziol, a New Jersey native, enjoyed a stellar four-year career at Loyola, where he was a two-time All-American (1986-87) and remains the program's all-time leader in assists. He was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 1994. Koziol began his professional career playing outdoors for the American Soccer League's Maryland Bays in 1988 and, after a season with the Boston Bolts in the ASL, returned to Baltimore to play for the Blast in the 1989-90 season.

Stan Freburg wants Baltimoreans to know he's got nothing against local icon Francis Scott Key. He just thinks it's funny to imagine the tune for "The Star Spangled Banner" was actually written by Key two years earlier as an unsuccessful advertising jingle for "Rumpelmeyer's Horse Shoes."That is the premise, anyway, for one of the skits to be heard in "The New Stan Freburg Show!" It's a National Public Radio return to the thrilling days of yesteryear, when comedy variety shows were regular air fare.

Create a fragrance that smells heroic with a touch of villainy - that's what Andrew Levine's Lutherville company set out to do. Considering the name on the bottle, it makes sense. The new Stan Lee's Signature Cologne trades on the geek popularity of a comic-book-industry icon who had a hand in creations spanning the good-evil continuum - from Spider-Man, the Avengers and the X-Men to Loki, Magneto and Doctor Doom. Lee wanted the fragrance to smell like they would smell.

Stan Stovall's ascent at WBAL-TV continues. The station announced yesterday that Stovall will take over anchoring duties on the Baltimore NBC affiliate's 5 p.m. weekday newscasts. He replaces Jeff Pegues, who leaves after this week to join WABC-TV in New York City. Stovall, 50, was dismissed by ratings-starved WMAR-TV in late 2001. Last April, WBAL picked him up as a weekend morning anchor. Over the summer, he was promoted to weekday morning anchor. And now Stovall, who first arrived in Baltimore in 1978 to work for WBAL, is to be paired with Donna Hamilton on the evening news.

Stan White was a household name in Baltimore before he was born. His father was a linebacker who earned All-America honors at Ohio State, spent eight years with the Baltimore Colts, three with the Detroit Lions and three more in the U.S. Football League before retiring in 1985. When Stan Jr. was born on Labor Day 1983, the youngest of Patty White's three children - and the only boy - he seemed destined to play football. Bruce Allen, then general manager of the USFL's Chicago Blitz, drew up a mock contract worth $50,000 to Stan Jr. when he graduated from college.

Stan Edmister was an artist of public works, filling Baltimore with a parrot-green bridge paint scheme and fanciful playground equipment. He was also well-known for feeding hungry crowds his grilled mushroom sandwiches at city farmers' markets. The former Woodberry resident died of cancer Sunday at his home in Warrenton, Va. He was 69. "For the past 36 years, Stan Edmister has been one of Baltimore's more quietly influential citizens," a 2004 Sun article said. "I've always been contrary, always been an outsider," he said.

WMAR's new news director has made it clear she intends to shake things up. Count longtime anchor Stan Stovall as one person who is uncertain about his future at the station. Stovall's contract expires toward the end of the year. In an interview, he said the station has made little substantive effort to sign him anew. And he also said WMAR, troubled by slender ratings, has made no attempt to promote his presence on the airwaves. "It leaves you with a feeling that they don't want you," Stovall said yesterday.

Stan Stovall remembers being quizzed on simple phrases in French at age 3, learning to read by following the adventures of his favorite action heroes at 6, and perusing the newspaper each day when he was 9.The WMAR-TV (Channel 2) anchorman grew up in a household where reading was a regular activity and school considered a challenge best tackled head-on, with gusto.It's no surprise that illiteracy is one of Stovall's pet peeves."Quite frankly, I don't see how anyone can get anywhere today without being not only a reader, but a good reader," Stovall says, perched on a stool in the studio where he reads the nightly news.

He lives off Ritchie Highway in Pasadena, past the McDonald's that has ditched drive-through intercoms for a "Face to Face" window service that takes all the joy out of screaming garbled orders back and forth at each other. He is Stan Gembicki, the brick man of Pasadena, and he is out back of his home on G Street.Stan extends his tanned tough hand, jacks up his jeans and wonders out loud why the heck anyone would want to see his brick work. And why the heck did his wife, Edith, write the Sunpapers about it."

Stan Honey has spent much of the past two decades living a double life - as a computer graphics innovator who made televised sports more easily watchable for the casual fan and as a master yachtsman who navigated large boats to a long list of nautical accomplishments. Honey (pronounced HO-nee), who was inducted this month into the National Sailing Hall of Fame, has finally been able to combine his two seemingly unrelated passions - given that one is usually accomplished sitting in an office while the other takes place on the open seas - in what he has called a "perfect job. " For the past couple of years, Honey has been working with the U.S. organizing committee of the 2013 America's Cup as its technical director, and has helped develop a tracking system, in much the same way he has done for fans watching football, baseball and hockey.

Every Baby Boomer parent has spent hours reading the adventures of the Berenstain Bears , so I was saddedned to hear that co-creator Jan Berenstain had died at age 88. She and her husband Stan, who died in 2005, created the bear family that provided lessons in  coping with kid-sized issues such as bad habits, a new baby and moving away. The team authored more than 200 books, and built the bears into a multi-media conglomerate, before handing over the reins to son Mike. Here's an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times' obit : "Born Janice Grant in Philadelphia on July 26, 1923, she met Stan in a first-year drawing class at the Philadelphia Museum of Industrial Art in 1941.

I couldn't do it again. Honest, I tried, but I just couldn't. I saw Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf on my TV screen at the top of the Ravens telecast Sunday, and I knew I couldn't spend another Sunday afternoon listening to dumb and dumber of CBS Sports without my head exploding. It was radical, I know, but after too many Sundays spent with Gumbel and Dierdorf, I dared to consider the possibility of actually enjoying a Ravens game over the airwaves. And so, I did what dozens of readers have been encouraging me to do all season: I watched images of the game on CBS, and I listened to the play-by-play and analysis on WBAL radio from Gerry Sandusky, Stan White and Qadry Ismail.

Stan Lee is one proud father these days. You'd be proud, too, if your progeny included Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and the Fantastic Four — characters whose films routinely bring in a few hundred million dollars at the movie box office. Not that Lee has much to do with the movies themselves: His connection is restricted to a largely honorary executive-producer credit and a cameo in each film — as a swinging Hugh Hefner-type in "Iron Man," mailman Willie Limpkin in "Fantastic Four," an Army general in this summer's "Captain America.

— Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten leans over his hand-held computer for an inning-by-inning update on Stephen Strasburg, the minor league pitching prodigy whose impending debut with the big club looms as one of baseball's compelling stories. Seated in the press box, Kasten gazes down at the field, where his team is soon to defeat the New York Mets. He has surveyed the stands, which are half-empty on this chilly, midweek night but seem certain to fill up once Strasburg, consistently warm weather and more wins arrive.

Stan Van Gundy has a request for the NBA: no more Christmas games. "I actually feel sorry for people who have nothing to do on Christmas Day other than watch an NBA game," the Magic coach said. The Magic lost 86-77 to the Celtics on Friday, one of five NBA games on Christmas. Van Gundy said he understands the high-priced TV contracts generate money for the league and it would be difficult to stop such games. He said at the very least he wishes the league had fewer games on the holidays.
