Phew! They did it!  They survived week one of "Top Chef," Season 11. Chef Patty was crying over the experience, which didn't win her any points in chef Stephanie's book -- she insisted  she'll only cry when she is kicked off. Hmm, foreshadowing? Let's start a tally now of how many times either chef Patty or Chef Stephanie cries. So far, the score is 1-0. Time to open the bottles of real wine (not cooking wine), pour a glass, kick back and revel in their awesomeness.

Well, now we know who Maryland's starting quarterback will be against Boston College on Saturday. It's Caleb Rowe, the redhead freshman who looks even younger than his years. Nothing against Rowe - I was impressed by his arm strength and accuracy during training camp - but he wins the job by process of elimination. He's the last quarterback standing. We've just posted a story on how Devin Burns suffered a serious foot injury during Saturday's loss to North Carolina State and is - how many times have you heard these words recently?

John Hahn Jr. of Reisterstown has made changes in his game, and they have paid off."He's made a big change in his game," said Joe Rineer, a duckpin Hall of Famer. "And right now he's bowling better than I ever saw bowl before, I know he's picked up six or eight pins on his average this late in the season."Hahn, bowling for "about 30 of his 38 years" laughed, "Joe's right, I did make a big change in my game."And that game wasn't so bad. Hahn has a career high game of 224 and a high set of 572; last year he averaged in the high 140s.

Mark Turgeon has been spending lots of time lately with the kids — and not just his three young children. The Maryland coach is now working with a handful of freshmen on a team that appears to be the youngest he will coach since Wichita State in 2001-02. First-year players — there were a half-dozen of them — were an integral part of a Shockers team that went 15-15 (9-9 Missouri Valley Conference) in Turgeon's second season in Wichita, Kan. Maryland, which has begun holding 16, one-hour, summer-session practices, may start as many as three freshmen in some games this season.

LEXINGTON PARK -- Military base realignment has been a bonanza for Southern Maryland, boosting incomes and lowering unemployment in a rural region known largely for tobacco farming. But more than a decade after thousands of new military and civilian workers transferred to work on and around Patuxent River Naval Air Station, traffic still clogs the two-lane bridge over the Patuxent that many commuters use, despite hundreds of millions spent by government on road improvements. Housing prices also have climbed beyond the reach of many St. Mary's County residents.

The Public Course players played the Private Club members on nearly even terms in singles yesterday at Hayfields Country Club, but it was not nearly enough to offset a first-day deficit, and the Private team finished with a 15 1/2 -8 1/2 victory in the annual Challenge Cup. The winners had a 6 1/2 -5 1/2 margin in singles, with six of the pairings going at least 17 holes. In the closest one, Eddie Lipski of Hillendale CC and Greg Ruark of Mount Pleasant halved their match. Lipski rallied from 3 down to get even in the middle of the round, Ruark went 1 up at the 16th, Lipski birdied the 17th and they halved the last hole.

Laura Krajewski lost her race, but you couldn't tell from all the hugs and applause that followed her 50-meter backstroke. Maybe the most emotional of all was her longtime coach, Mary Ellen Barrett. Even before the swim meet began, Barrett was in tears. This was the season's final home meet. It meant saying farewell to her seniors, 17-year-old Laura included. Laura's father was the meet announcer. Her mom kept score. Her older brothers and sisters were there, all former swim team members.

Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association golf has a different look from last spring, but one thing remains the same - St. Paul's is still the team to beat. The MIAA has consolidated the schedule from a three-conference format into two. League officials have done away with the C Conference, moving all 20 of the teams into the A and B conferences. In addition, the Red and Gold divisions of the A Conference, instituted last year, are gone. There are 12 teams in the A Conference, but St. Paul's remains the team that everyone's watching.

Now that the Ravens finally have a road victory and a two-game winning streak to feel good about, the message among some of their veterans heading into this week's test in Tennessee is clear.Forget about it, because you haven't accomplished much yet."We've still got 13 games to go. So we've won two in a row. I guess that gives you guys [reporters] one less thing to write about," defensive tackle Tony Siragusa said. "It's not that big of a deal. I'm used to winning two in a row. I'm used to winning two, three, four, five in a row. All we should be thinking about is getting back to work.
