Whenever Archbishop Spalding junior right fielder Meghan Van Meter needs a bit of reassurance on the softball field, a quick look to her right provides it. It could be a simple nod, some encouraging words, or a hint to take a step back or in with a particular batter at the plate. And if she does something wrong, older sister Sloane, who has played center field the past four years for the Cavaliers, will let her know about that, too. "I first wanted to play softball because of Sloane," Meghan said.

When Mike Knoepfle and his fiancee, Laura Van Meter, looked at a two-story rowhouse for sale in South Baltimore, they boldly climbed up onto its old roof. The spectacular harbor view, with sailboats gliding past the Domino Sugar plant toward Chesapeake Bay, sold them on the property. That was in August 2003. Knoepfle, 33, did what he had done many times before as founder and owner of Building Character by MK Enterprises LLC, a housing rehabilitation business. He purchased the home on Harvey Street for $130,000 and gutted it from basement to roof, until only the brick walls remained.

Machines used to erase audio tapes at the National Security Agency did not cause two workers' health problems, an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury that was asked to rule on a $10 million lawsuit has found. The verdict, reached Tuesday night after about two hours of deliberation, ended a two-and-a-half week trial in which medical experts and scientists disagreed about whether the equipment caused a brain tumor in Thomas E. Van Meter, a retired NSA employee from Odenton, and a brain lesion in Tommy Gerald Grimes, a Severn man who still works for the agency.
