Kellner, the chief economist for Chemical Bank.

At 16, Dorant Wells has experienced the complexities of what Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark school desegregation ruling, has wrought: He attended a middle school full of students of different colors and nationalities, but one where he sometimes felt there were lower expectations for black students. Now at his nearly all African-American high school, Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore County, he sees value in the special character of the school, while acknowledging he may be less prepared to enter a diverse world.

WASHINGTON -- Producer prices rose one-half of 1 percent in July, the biggest increase in 15 months, while retail sales slowed slightly, the government said yesterday.But both overall figures masked changes in key sectors of the economy that give contradictory indications of whether the current economic expansion will lead to a sharp rise in inflation.And, taken together, the figures further muddled the question of whether the Federal Reserve will push up short-term interest rates again when its main policy committee meets Tuesday, Wall Street analysts said.

Seven-tenths of an inch, in 1949-1950.

WASHINGTON -- Government reports yesterday showed that retail spending and consumer prices were a bit more vigorous in August than had generally been expected, and the bond market promptly seized on the figures as an excuse to sell.The Commerce Department reported that $173.5 billion passed across retail counters last month, two-tenths of 1 percent more than in July. Merchants racked up their fifth consecutive advance since the late-winter blizzard that crippled much of the East Coast. Much of the gain was in the automotive sector, though less than in July.

WASHINGTON -- Spending heavily for big-ticket goods, shoppers kicked off the holiday gift-giving season by sending retail sales in November up briskly, a preliminary tabulation by the Commerce Department showed yesterday.Consumers shoved $178.93 billion across counters last month, four-tenths of 1 percent more than in October, despite severe wintry weather that curtailed activity in much of the country toward the end of the month.Although the rise was less than some expected, the Clinton administration and most private analysts expressed satisfaction with it, noting that this was the eighth straight rise in retail spending, a category accounting for one-third of the nation's economic activity.

Author George Saunders is having the kind of year that could lead the former roofer and slaughterhouse worker to imagine that someone is spritzing the air around him with a giant bottle of perfume. "The way things have been going recently, it's as if I had a personal sprayer walking behind me and making sure that the world always smells sweet," says the New York-based writer, who will visit Baltimore on April 13 to headline the 10th annual CityLit Festival. With the publication in January of his new book, "Tenth of December," Saunders, 54, a professor at Syracuse University, has been receiving the kind of attention seldom given to short-story writers - even those who, like him, received a 2006 MacArthur "genius" grant.

Friedgen had an emotional meeting with his players after Maryland's season-ending, 19-17 loss to Boston College - its seventh straight defeat.

WASHINGTON -- All but burying fears of worrisome inflation, consumer prices inched up one-tenth of 1 percent in May as lower prices for gasoline and clothing offset increases for vegetables, used cars and the fees charged by physicians and lawyers, Labor Department figures showed yesterday.The report, combined with a similar one on Friday showing no inflation at the producer level, was widely seen as proving that prices remained in check and that jumps earlier this year were temporary and in some cases more statistical than real.
