When the daily grind of a busy career got in the way of Susan Wolcott's dream, it was time to make a decision. Five years ago, she left her Fairfax, Va., job in corporate health care and headed for the hills of Washington County in Western Maryland. "I took a total risk," said Wolcott, 56, "but for me, it was not about the money." It was about pursuing, along with her sister, a viable knitting business that includes organized stitching getaways, an online pattern company and a retail store in the front two rooms of her 18th-century house in Funkstown.

Johns Hopkins quarterback Zach DiIonno passed for 371 yards and four scores, and the Blue Jays pulled away late for a 35-17 win yesterday over Kean in Union, N.J. DiIonno's 371 yards on 24-for-36 passing ranks as the second-highest single-game total in Blue Jays history. Only John Guglielmo's 477-yard effort against Georgetown in 1991 stands above DiIonno's total. His four touchdown passes were the most by a Hopkins quarterback since Guglielmo threw for a school-record six in the win over the Hoyas.

What do you call an adult female crustacean with a tiny computer strapped to its back? Robo-crab. Scientists hope the backpack-toting animals will provide crucial insights into the life cycle of the Chesapeake Bay's female blue crabs and a boost to a population struggling to rebound after decades of overharvesting. Specifically, the robo-crabs are answering what seem like two simple questions: After female crabs mate in the upper Chesapeake Bay, when do they start heading south? And how do they travel?

Ann Sherman Wolcott, At Aberdeen Proving Ground's chapel yesterday, the meeting room was humming with three dozen military wives who were ironing, measuring, cutting and sewing more than 200 yards of fabric into red and white flags. Others, including a few children, were painting wooden rods to hold the flags. And at the end of the assembly line, Elaine Valentin sat down at her sewing machine to realize a dream: to make a flag for every family who has lost a loved one in Iraq or the war on terrorism.

But they were just another Mariners' miracle waiting to happen.Seattle rookie Bob Wolcott somehow held the Indians to two runs and Luis Sojo delivered a tie-breaking RBI double in the seventh inning last night to carry the Mariners to an improbable 3-2 victory before a roaring sellout crowd of 57,065 in the first-ever American League Championship Series game at the Kingdome.
