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.

For years, local country singer Caity Lynn Fisher performed around Baltimore and dreamed of moving to Nashville, Tenn. But her plans to leave her home in Glen Burnie and head west with musical partner Jennifer Van Meter kept getting waylaid. This spring, Fisher finally made it to Music City to compete on the TV show Can You Duet. On the reality show, created by the producers of American Idol, several teams of two singers vie for a chance to win a record deal with Sony BMG. The next episode airs at 8 p.m. tomorrow on CMT. Fisher and Van Meter played in the local country and folk group Eighty1South for nearly seven years.

WHEN GOUCHER College moved from midtown Baltimore to Towson starting in the late 1940s, the first academic building on its new campus was Van Meter Hall.As the college grew over the years, the building became outmoded because it lacked high-tech features such as laptop computer connections and classrooms designed for multimedia presentations and teleconferencing.But this fall it is ready for another 50 years of service, after a $5.5 million expansion and modernization that enables it to accommodate the college's expanded curriculum and teaching methods.

There was no talk of revenge or redemption by the No. 2 Archbishop Spalding softball team after falling short in its bid for a third straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title last season. The Cavaliers just focused this season on reclaiming their position atop the league. That mantra helped them go undefeated in the conference, and yesterday, Spalding maintained that momentum with a 5-0 victory over visiting Seton Keough in the IAAM semifinals. Elaine Nescio pitched another gem by going all seven innings and allowing one hit with four strikeouts.

Jon Van Meter gets right to the point. "We don't want to be called or thought of or looked at as a hip-hop magazine," he says of Vibe, the monthly music magazine he edits.True, both the "preview issue" that came out last fall and the premiere issue arriving at newsstands this week feature rap stars on the cover (Treach from Naughty By Nature and Snoop Doggy Dogg(cq), respectively). And it's equally true that Vibe's founder, producer-musician Quincy Jones, hopes the magazine will do for rap fans in the '90s what Rolling Stone did for rock fans in the '70s.

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.

Two former National Security Agency employees have sued the manufacturer of a machine the agency used to erase audio tapes, claiming their work with the equipment caused brain tumors. The workers allege in separate cases that machines from Electro-Matic Products Co. of Chicago emitted a dangerous electromagnetic field, and the company failed to warn potential buyers or users. Both cases were filed in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Plaintiff Nancy Ringler of Catonsville said she used the machine from 1988 to 1994 while working for NSA. According to her suit, Ringler developed a brain tumor and lost sight in her right eye because of the exposure.
