Broadneck senior forward Nate Watkins made quite the impression with his new team in the No. 12 Bruins' season opener against Meade on Tuesday, throwing in some last-minute heroics for good measure. A transfer from Wisconsin, he put away a centering pass from fellow senior Jeff Horst with 2:24 to play - his third goal of the game - to lift Broadneck to a 3-2 win over the visiting Mustangs. Watkins scored his first two goals late in the first half to give the Bruins (1-0) a 2-1 halftime lead, but the Mustangs tied the game early in the second half and had more chances to grab control before Watkins' final tally.

By the time D. Watkins was in his early 20s, he had filled a shoe box with obituaries. Kids he had grown up with in East Baltimore. Classmates, neighbors, guys from the corners. His uncle. And, eventually, his older brother. The brief paragraphs and grainy photos testified to lives cut short, lives touched by the drug trade: users, dealers, those caught in the crossfire. Watkins had 120 thin brochures from funerals, enough to fill a Nike box. They were the only printed records of the lives of people he cared about.

The editorial regarding the proposal to put more computers in the hands of Baltimore County students makes a good point ( "Digital classrooms," Feb. 11): "While such considerations are important, they don't address the larger question of how digital devices actually improve the quality of classroom instruction or what educators can do with them that they can't do with traditional blackboards, paper and pencils. " However, his argument is parallel to one that opposes change. Of course, it's scary, different from the norm and difficult for all involved.

The Milford Mill boys basketball team has set a lofty standard in Baltimore County, winning the past four county championships and claiming two state titles in that span. The foundation begins with playing smart and consistent basketball. The No. 5 Millers take care of the ball and find open teammates on offense, they rebound well at both ends and their defense has a knack for blocking shots. Together, those strengths leave opponents with little margin for error. On Wednesday night, New Town became the latest team to learn that.
