Jay Greene's entourage hit the road again this week. Bused out of Whitehall, Pa., caught the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and took Interstate 81 into New York. Greene plays in front of a home crowd no matter whether he's on his home court at UMBC or, as he is this weekend, at Binghamton's Events Center in Vestal, N.Y., for the America East Conference tournament. By his estimate, between 50 and 100 Whitehall residents will be on hand for UMBC's noon quarterfinal today against the winner of the Stony Brook-Maine play-in game.

LONDON -- An Irish Republican Army bomb exploded in the heart of London yesterday, 300 yards from the residence of Prime Minister John Major and just 11 months after an IRA mortar attack on 10 Downing St. itself.The bomb was secreted in a leather briefcase left between two cars parked outside a building owned by the Defense Ministry. A warning sent to two television networks gave the police time to steer morning rush-hour pedestrians and traffic away from the area of Whitehall, where the bomb had been planted and where many government offices are located.

In medieval times, upper-class homeowners often placed a coat of arms on their gates to add a little grandeur to their address. These days, however, ornamental, often expensive address plaques can be found outside any home. "People are suddenly buying things like plaques for the outside of their houses that they wouldn't have even thought about five years ago," said Richard Thomas, co-owner of Courtland Hearth & Hardware in Fallston and Bel Air. "They're not making money in the stock market, so they're putting money into their homes and it's the individual touches that give them personal satisfaction."
