Longtime WMAR news anchor Stan Stovall is being dismissed by the Baltimore station when his contract lapses at the end of December. WMAR general manager Drew Berry and news director Staci Feger-Childers would not discuss the decision other than to praise Stovall's professionalism, saying the move is a personnel matter. But the two officials acknowledge they are taking a series of steps to try to reverse the fortunes of the consistently third-rated station. "I definitely will be leaving," Stovall said late Friday.

It wasn't just baseball that Elizabeth Stovall loved. She had a passion for Orioles baseball.Each season for the past four decades, she would sit in front of her television and cheer for Jim Gentile, Paul Blair, Jim Palmer and Eddie Murray, giving up sleep to catch late games from the West Coast and sitting restlessly during rain delays.Other sports held no interest for her, and she never made it to the ballpark to see a game. "There's no way to explain it, she just loved to watch the Orioles on television," said her daughter, Ouida McCormick of Baltimore.

Stan Stovall and Marty Bass top the list of best-dressed news dudes in Baltimore. So say the readers of This Just In, who wrote, phoned and faxed their opinions from throughout the Greater Patapsco Drainage Basin. Stovall (Channel 2) also got a vote for "best undressed." He has, of course, that tremendous physique, which sometimes makes his clothes look too snug. But who am I to argue? Stovall got the most votes. Bass fTC (Channel 13) was a close second, followed by Norm Lewis (2), Virg Jacques (11)

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.

Two familiar faces will return to the Baltimore airwaves this month. Stan Stovall will start as a weekend morning news anchor on WBAL-TV, one of his former employers, and Jeff Barnd will rejoin WBFF-TV as that station's primary nightly anchor. Stovall, 50, is one of Baltimore's best-known television news figures. After he was dismissed by WMAR-TV in December 2001, Stovall became an outspoken opponent of the industry practice of placing "non-compete" clauses in contracts that prevent a television journalist from shifting to a rival station for many months.

Years ago, the singer Michael Jackson released the music video "Bad," in which he played the role of a poor kid from a tough neighborhood who got a chance to attend an elite private boarding school. A lot of the sixth-graders at the SEED School of Maryland probably could relate to that. The school opened this year on the campus of Baltimore's old Southwestern High School, and it is the fulfillment of what once must have seemed like an impossible dream for many of the kids and their parents: a tuition-free education at a first-rate boarding school with teachers dedicated to preparing them for college.

OUTSIDE A TENT ERECTED AT TIDE Point Waterfront Park, the 60-degree temperatures gave a hint of the spring weather that was on its way. Inside, the atmosphere was one of anticipation. Scheduled to open in August in Southwest Baltimore, the SEED School of Maryland is a new statewide college preparatory public boarding school for students from under-served urban areas. This evening's party, "An Urban Garden Party," was its opening celebration. "This is a fabulous get-together. A very young, hip crowd ... a lot of people are coming out for the first time, learning about this organization," observed committee member Mikey Monaghan as she surveyed the area.

One of the most implausible investment theories is the one that predicts stocks will take a steep dive partway through a midterm election year and stay down until Octo- ber. So far this year, it's working perfectly. Stocks' tendency to fall in the second year of a presidential administration may be a coincidence of the calendar. But it's a coincidence with decades of history, which means it's hard to explain by assuming stocks move randomly, which means it may not be a coinci- dence. And if it holds for the rest of the year, stocks will suffer more pain in the next couple months.

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.

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.
