CSX Real Property President Stephen Beck said Wednesday he's given supporters of the Hagerstown roundhouse until July 10 to save the railroad buildings from demolition. Beck said he has asked the demolition contractors whether costs would rise if they delayed razing the property for 30 or 60 days, but hadn't received an answer on Wednesday. Beck said CSX officials will continue efforts to get a demolition permit so the demolition can proceed if progress isn't made in efforts to save the 40-acre complex along South Burhans Boulevard.

If John Beck and Rex Grossman were truly just about even, then Grossman might have won the Washington Redskins starting quarterback job just by standing on the sideline. Given a chance to make a closing argument in his case to be No. 1, Beck turned in a spotty performance Thursday night, completing 10 of 21 passes for 108 yards with an interception in a 29-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the teams' final preseason game. Beck played the entire first half with the starting offensive line and backup running backs and receivers, while the Buccaneers gave all of their first-stringers the night off. The Redskins' offense produced 10 points in Beck's eight series, but the touchdown and the field goal both came on short fields after the defense forced a turnover.

Although an official decision hasn't been made, comments from Hagerstown elected officials Tuesday evening indicate that an effort to save the roundhouse complex may be derailed. "I don't want to be the one to say it, but we know what the answer will be," Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said during a work session of the mayor and City Council. --cont from front page -- Bruchey said he doesn't want to be driving with his grandson down South Burhans Boulevard 30 years from now, and have to point out the spot where the roundhouse used to be. Nor would he want to point the site out as a multimillion-dollar debacle made by the city, Bruchey said.

After remaining silent on the campus site question for a month, University System of Maryland Chancellor Donald Langenberg spoke out Wednesday, saying he preferred the Allegheny Power location. A campus at the Hagerstown city-owned Baldwin House Complex site "would be far less desirable from our students' point of view," he said during the steering committee meeting held to consider the city's offer. The Allegheny Power site remains the best available location, he said. Many of those attending classes at the campus will have jobs and be going to school part time, he said.

It's been nine years since the Washington Redskins had this kind of suspense entering the final preseason game. In 2002, Steve Spurrier's first season, the coach waited until the final exhibition was over to declare that Shane Matthews had won the starting quarterback job over Danny Wuerffel. Neither one had played well. Matthews came out on top despite throwing five interceptions in six quarters during the preseason. It's worth noting that Matthews, Wuerffel and Patrick Ramsey all ended up starting before the 7-9 season was over.

John Beck was ready to speak to a group of reporters Monday when he noticed a TV cameraman having trouble with some equipment. “We're one camera short,” Beck said. “You all right?” He then calmly waited a full 40 seconds for the cameraman to get everything fixed. No need to hurry. No sign of anxiety or impatience. Just wait it out. As quarterback competitions go, the Washington Redskins have one that's been about as polite and composed as it can be. Beck and Rex Grossman are more friends than foes and are keeping whatever jitters they have to themselves, even in the final days before coach Mike Shanahan makes the call.
