COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- This Duke-Maryland game was far closer than the previous matchup and much more indicative of one of college basketball's great rivalries. The result, however, was identical. Gerald Henderson scored 19 points, Jon Scheyer hit a key 3-pointer with 1:54 left, and No. 7 Duke spoiled the Terrapins' upset bid with a 78-67 victory Wednesday night. Eager to avenge an 85-44 loss to the Blue Devils last month and build on Saturday's win over then-No. 3 North Carolina, the Terrapins forged a tie with 5:44 left.

ATLANTA -- The boo birds couldn't keep Duke from reaching another ACC final.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Chambersburg CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Retired himself, Duke fits in well as the newest resident at The Quarters at the Shook Home, a personal care facility in downtown Chambersburg, and he doesn't need anything more than his regular meals, exercise, a little affection and occasional grooming. Duke, a 3-year-old lean, black and tan retired racing greyhound, came to the personal care home a month ago through the Adopt a Greyhound program in Philadelphia.

Hello Washington County and hello "Duke" (not his real name). Where do we, as a nation or a state or a locality, draw the line between public safety and individual rights? Kind of a quirky lead in, isn't it? So who's Duke and what's with that question?   Well, let me take the question first. Those of you who read my column in the Jan. 23 edition of The Herald-Mail, I mean those of you who really read it, realize that the question above is the one I asked readers to thoughtfully consider and to respond.

Here we go with the final installment to March Madness for 2004. The Final Four is set. I've got three teams alive in eacy of my two brackets - Duke, UConn and Oklahoma State. Are you of the mindset that Saturday's semifinal between Duke and UConn is the game for the national title? Most people probably are. I'm not. Georgia Tech beat them both during the season. So where does that place the Yellow Jackets? In most corners, not more than an outside chance because they might not even get past Oklahoma State.

When Rita Duke was diagnosed with breast cancer, she was terrified. She didn't think she would live to see another Christmas with her children let alone live to see her children marry or become parents. "I had four children and no children were married. I had no grandbabies, no prospects of grandbabies, and I thought, 'No, this can't be yet. I have to have more time so I can have all these things.' And I got it," Duke said. Duke, along with 140 others, participated in the American Cancer Society's ninth annual Chambersburg Relay for Life at Norlo Park, which started Friday night and ended Saturday.

North Hagerstown graduate Anna Compton already knew she was heading to Duquesne University in a matter of weeks to pursue a political science degree. Then she got the call from Duquesne's rising women's lacrosse program, informing her that she had earned a spot on next season's team. “It was one other girl and I for the position,” said Compton, who won the roster spot in a recent tryout. “I'm actually very excited. It's a big moment for me. I'm taking every day as it comes and I'm obviously going to work harder to improve as a player there.” Compton's game already has improved tremendously, allowing her this opportunity.

Randy Shepard said his wife, their four daughters and their dog packed into the family vehicle late last week to make the eight-hour trek from Buffalo, N.Y., to Hagerstown. But the trip wasn't made for a wedding or family reunion. The Shepards were among several hundred people who visited Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday to attend the Duke Family Festival, an event that featured autograph signings by five of the cast members of the former television series “The Dukes of Hazzard.” “I have a big poster I've been trying to get signed by everybody,” the 37-year-old Shepard said as he stood under a blistering sun. “I have everybody except for Tom Wopat.” Shepard said he owns a poster that has been signed by all of the cast members except for Wopat, who played Luke Duke in the pop culture phenomenon that ran from 1979 to 1985.

It's been more than 25 years since Catherine Bach had to don the jean cut-off short-shorts now famously called “Daisy Dukes.”  Some would argue that next to Michael Jackson's glittery glove, no other piece of clothing has earned its rightful place in pop culture history. However, Bach, 59, admits she has no idea where the iconic shorts have gotten to. “They're somewhere in my house, I don't know,” she said during a telephone interview while navigating Los Angeles traffic.

Bobby Salembene said that he has never filled out an NCAA Tournament bracket because he never felt “knowledgeable” enough to do it but described this year's tournament as a very open field that anybody could win. “From what I've watched this year, there's no clear-cut winner,” Salembene, 20, of Hagerstown said. “There's big name teams that might not be the favorites.” An upset-filled college basketball season, one in which The Associated Press No. 1 ranked team changed hands six times, will draw to an end with the tournament known affectionately as March Madness.

Walter E. Duke is again seeking the voters' stamp of approval to continue representing the people of Martinsburg and Berkeley County in the West Virginia legislature.  Duke, a Martinsburg Republican who represents the 61st District, said he is proud of what he has helped accomplish over the last 10 years. “Republicans like me have been the driving force in working with those across the aisle that has led to reforming workers comp, phasing out sales tax on food, reducing high business taxes that harm job creation and doubling the Senior Citizen Tax Credit,” Duke said in a news release.
