For five years, he played football for the Green Bay Packers and Vince Lombardi, the quintessential tough coach. So how can Tom Brown now run a youth sports camp in Salisbury that's so relaxed the kids fill out the lineups, everyone gets to play and winning doesn't matter? It makes sense to Brown, 72, a two-sport star at Maryland 50 years ago. "Vince was a teacher first," he said. "He taught us about football and about life. He told us, in retirement, to find our niche. I looked it up in the dictionary and it said a niche is something you're good at and that you like doing.

Hunched beneath a large blue tarp that kept out the steady drizzle but not the humidity, a young woman in her 20s with long brown hair furiously moved a stick back and forth against a cedar spindle trying to turn friction into fire. Not far away, a small crowd gathered to watch as someone steadily scraped the hair and skin off a deer hide, and a few amateur trackers spent some "dirt time" looking for animal prints on a nearby trail. All the while, I stood next to a pile of wooden boughs, flicking my wrist sideways as I practiced my throwing stick technique -- just in case one day I might need to kill a furry little bunny for dinner.

Like father, like daughter. The pedigree is evident as UMBC junior point guard Jessie Brown flits about the court, seemingly everywhere at once, with her love of the game glaring. Like her father, Tom, a former pro football and baseball player, she impresses as someone who was born to play sports. And like him, perhaps later in life she will pass along her knowledge to her children. In every conversation about Jessie Brown, two phrases dominate: "work ethic" and "hates to lose." "There are probably more talented players.

About two dozen people will congregate next week to render tales about former residents of New Windsor. There's the one about Boiling Mad Anthony Wayne whose tale includes boiling, bones and skin. Another story is about Dr. Roberts Bartholomew, a Civil War doctor who was condemned by the American Medical Association for his unethical medical practices. Then there's the one about Old Tom Brown, who had a glass eye and reportedly drank soda left sitting around by the townspeople. "The stories are not conjured-up tales," said Sharon Schuster, a retired teacher who interviewed local residents and did research to write the stories.

SALISBURY -- Take a script worthy of Hollywood: A forme big-league ballplayer spends years building from scratch a sports program for a bunch of cute, All-American kids and finally scrapes together the money to build four child-sized diamonds in a sorghum field.Then add a strong dose of reality: Angry neighbors say the fields will bring unwanted noise and traffic, devalue their properties and ruin their retirements.Call it "Field of Dreams II." To adapt a line from the movie: Propose to build it and they will come -- to zoning hearings.

Stop me if you've heard this. A man walks into a Packers bar in Millersville. No, wait, that's no joke. There really is a Green Bay Packers bar in Millersville: Bullseye Sports Bar and Grill, tucked between motels catering to long-haul truckers and home of a Super Bowl $10 All-You-Can-Eat Bratwurst Buffet. The walls are devoted to everything Green Bay: photos, news clippings, jerseys, even a figurine at the end of the bar dressed in green and gold and wearing a cheesehead. And that devotion is personified in Lou Ann Beecher, a ball of energy who helps out around the bar and persuaded restaurant owner Laverda Ensey to surrender her establishment to Packers Nation eight years ago. "The Bullseye is a little bit of Lambeau Field right here in Maryland," says Beecher, 55, as she delivers brats and cheese curds flown in from Wisconsin to the bar along with Packers tablecloths, napkins and souvenir beads.

Banks are a hot investment ticket of late. We're not talking certificates of deposit or money-market accounts, but the rising stock of banking companies because of worldwide merger-and-acquisition activity. Everybody wants a piece of the action: There's the multibid scramble for Dutch bank ABN Amro Holdings NV, prompted by an offer by Britain's Barclays PLC that would create the world's fifth-largest bank. ABN's LaSalle Bank is the crown jewel. Spain's Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA agreed to buy Alabama's Compass Bancshares Inc. Merrill Lynch & Co. is buying a stake in Japan's fourth-largest bank by revenue, Resona Holdings Inc., and China Citic Bank Corp.

Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing.That philosophy was drilled into Tom Brown when he played defensive back under Vince Lombardi on the Green Bay Packers teams that won the first two Super Bowls in January 1967 and 1968. Brown also remembers how coaches stressed perfection when he played 116 games for the 1963 Washington Senators.But the former two-professional-sport athlete developed his own ideas about how to teach baseball. And for the past 20 years, Brown has taught teamwork and equality at his Rookie League baseball camp in Salisbury.
