A Loyola men's lacrosse team that had trouble finding the net a week ago encountered no such difficulties yesterday. The No. 16 Greyhounds found shooting lanes, hit open teammates and unleashed a quick-scoring offense in a 13-8 upset of No. 13 Towson at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson yesterday. Unlike last weekend's 7-6 loss to Notre Dame, during which Loyola misfired on 28 of 34 shots, the Greyhounds converted 40.6 percent of their 32 shots in ending a three-game losing streak to their Charles Street rivals.

Despite the noise, crowds and chatty friends surrounding her in the Arundel High School cafeteria, Aleshia Highland was finishing her physics homework and her lunch. The senior from Odenton planned to spend the last half of her new 50-minute lunch period with a book club called the Socratic Cafe. She couldn't join when the group met after school because she has to catch a bus. The extended lunch period also gives her extra time after school. "It eases up on homework that you have to do at home," she said.

In a 2005 article for Disability Studies Quarterly, author Betty Adelson notes that little people "are highlighted in the legends and myths of every nation." Dwarfs were teamed with Amazonian gladiators in Rome; elevated to the status of priests in ancient Egypt. Later they became objects of private amusement for English royalty. The 18th century ushered in the golden era of sideshows and circuses - and greater public exposure. Here are a few highlights of little people in American pop culture: Charles Stratton, dubbed "General Tom Thumb," peaked at 3 feet 4 inches.

After four rock attacks on their son's parked car and bullets fired into their house, a fed-up Arnold couple finally caught a suspect themselves -- on videotape. Their late-night camera surveillance resulted in the arrest last week of a 15-year-old Severna Park boy. Police said he was caught on tape in a drive-by act of vandalism, tossing a rock from a moving pickup truck at the car of 18-year-old Josh Weiszhaar, parked outside his family's home on Long Meadow Way. "We didn't have any other way to catch him," said David Weiszhaar, Josh's father, explaining why the video camera was rolling nightly, aimed from an upstairs bedroom window.

WASHINGTON - People have the right to go door to door to advocate for religious, political or other noncommercial causes without first getting the government's permission, the Supreme Court ruled yesterday in a lopsided constitutional victory for the ministry of the Jehovah's Witnesses. The 8-1 decision struck down a small Ohio town's ordinance that made it a crime for any "canvasser" or "solicitor" to pay an uninvited visit on any of the 278 residents for the purpose of promoting or explaining any "cause" without providing identification and obtaining a permit from the mayor's office.
