Michael Maykrantz was on duty at a fire house on 74th street in Ocean City when the floor began to shake and the doors started to rattle. At Bart Rader's house in Ocean Pines, a loud boom “like somebody blew something up” preceded shaking so heavy that it rattled a 50-pound metal sculpture against the wall. Miles away in Annapolis, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan was meeting in state Sen. James Mathias' office when he got a text message from his daughter: “What the heck was that?

ATLANTA - The Pentagon has approved rapid production of F/A-22 Raptor fighters, but that doesn't mean the Air Force will get all the planes it wants. A Pentagon panel known as a defense acquisition board approved full-rate production of stealthy, supersonic Raptors late last month, Loren Thompson, defense analyst at the Lexington Institute, said yesterday. That board's decision will allow Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin to accelerate construction of the planes in Marietta, Ga., where about 2,200 of the plant's 7,800 workers are tied to the Raptor program.

MIAMI -- After losing the season opener on the road to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Seattle SuperSonics were figured by many to be in for another mediocre year. Some were even counting the days before coach Nate McMillan's 18-year association with the club would be over. But an interesting thing happened when the team reconvened for practice the next day in Seattle. McMillan, whose team finished last season with a 37-45 record, chose not to show his players the tape of the game. "I thought about showing it, but I decided it was behind us and we didn't need to look at it," McMillan said.

For a while yesterday, as the NBA's mid-afternoon trading deadline approached, it appeared the day would pass without significant movement, as many league observers had predicted. But just under the wire, the Seattle SuperSonics and Milwaukee Bucks pulled off a blockbuster deal, swapping All-Star guards. Gary Payton moved East and Ray Allen went West in a five-player trade that also sent forward Desmond Mason to the Bucks, while the Sonics also received guard Ronald Murray and point guard Kevin Ollie.

WASHINGTON - Most things considered, the Washington Wizards didn't play such a bad game against the Seattle SuperSonics last night, hitting 51 percent of their shots, forcing 13 turnovers and holding Gary Payton to a 6-of-18 shooting night. But when the entire picture is examined, namely the part where the SuperSonics hit 24 of 36 shots over a two-quarter span, Washington's 101-95 loss makes a bit more sense. Seattle shot an amazing 67 percent for the second and third quarters combined - 73 percent in the third alone when the SuperSonics missed only four of 15 shots.

WASHINGTON - Michael Jordan wore a look of disbelief for most of the 39 minutes he spent on the court yesterday at the MCI Center, the shock emanating from one of the worst shooting performances of his legendary career and another dismal effort by the Washington Wizards. That the Wizards lost their fourth straight game, a 99-84 pounding by the road-weary Seattle SuperSonics, wasn't as surprising as watching Jordan go without a field goal in the first half or missing his first 14 shots before finishing 5-for-26 from the field.

WASHINGTON - The NBA's annual venture into artistic expression, the slam dunk contest, ended last night more as a contest of endurance rather than of creativity, with missed slams aplenty. In the end, Seattle rookie forward Desmond Mason emerged as the survivor, taking home the $25,000 first prize, over DeShawn Stevenson of the Utah Jazz and Charlotte's Baron Davis. The contest was marred by a collection of missed dunks, including in the final round, where Stevenson and Davis both failed.
