Score points with Dad
Face it, you blew it. It's Father's Day and you have nothing deliver to your dad. Never got to the shopping mall, did you? OK, here's one solution, at least for those of you with sports-minded fathers. Motorola offers WBN Sports, a wireless sports-information service. A portable receiver, about the size of a pager, displays scores and game updates for all major sports, as well as injury reports, team rankings and major sporting news. The receiver, which is $124 including an activation fee, is available at ATS Sportspager in Baltimore County. Monthly service is extra and ranges from $11.99 to $49.99. Call (800) 772-1287 to order. The company promises next-day delivery. Environmentally minded dads and others will appreciate a line of items from Little Earth Productions. These high-fashion accessories are made from, among other things, recycled truck tire inner tubes, used license plates, and beer and soda bottle caps. Anyone for a bottle-cap belt, a rubber gym bag, a road journal with a license-plate cover and pages made of recycled paper, or a purse made from a license plate? L.E.P. items range from $5 to $180 and are available at Eclectic, at the Gallery at Harborplace, (410) 539-2411, Nouveau, 519 N. Charles St., (410) 962-8248, and La Terra, 4001 Falls Road, (410) 889-7562.
