An anchor store sought in Dundalk Office developer St. John Properties Inc. said it is continuing to seek a big-box retail store to anchor a new shopping center planned for the site of the former North Point drive-in theater in Dundalk. So far, Burger King has signed on to occupy one of four stand-alone sites at the proposed 160,000-square-foot center. St. John Properties bought the 17.5-acre site on North Point Boulevard in 2007 and hopes to attract a grocery store or pharmacy and smaller stores or a big-box retailer, such as Target, Wal-Mart or Best Buy.

PHILADELPHIA -- In the hyperbole of professional sports, many an event is advertised as a grudge match.But there are the exceptions when the description fits, and possibly none qualifies more than the junior middleweight unification title bout between Terry Norris and Paul Vaden that serves as an appetizer to the Mike Tyson-Buster Mathis Jr. heavyweight fight at the Spectrum on Saturday night.Norris and Vaden not only share the San Diego area as their home, but, according to boxing sources, also had romantic interests in the same woman, who eventually became Norris' wife.

PHILADELPHIA -- San Diego rivals Terry Norris and Paul Vaden turned what was billed as a "grudge match" into a 12-round sleepwalk last night in the junior middleweight unification appetizer to the Mike Tyson-Buster Mathis main course.All 12 rounds were sluggish and the estimated 9,000 fans at the Spectrum derided the lack of action. But Norris, who forced the issue throughout, did what little fighting there was and won a lopsided decision.Norris, who owned the World Boxing Council crown, added Vaden's International Boxing Federation belt to his collection.

LAS VEGAS -- Only four months after his spectacular knockout of Simon Brown, International Boxing Federation junior middleweight champion Vincent Pettway, of Baltimore, was upset by relatively obscure challenger Paul Vaden at the MGM Grand Garden.Trailing on all three judges' cards by a point going into last night's 12th and final round, San Diego's Vaden caught Pettway in a neutral corner and unleashed a barrage of punches until referee Richard Steele intervened with 27 seconds left in the fight.

LAS VEGAS -- The morning after losing his junior middleweight championship to underdog Paul Vaden, Vincent Pettway searched for words to express the disappointment.Saturday night's fight ended with the referee throwing a protective arm around Pettway with 27 seconds left in the final round."It was a disaster, terrible, and any other words you can find like that," said Pettway, his right eye swollen shut. "I just didn't have any energy. I can't explain it. I've never had trouble with my conditioning before."
