COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow affirmed her support for men's basketball coach Gary Williams on Monday, expressing optimism for this season and stressing that his job is secure. The Terrapins are 14-7 this season and 3-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but Williams has been criticized for letting the program sink since Maryland won the NCAA championship in 2002. The coach, in his 20th season with the Terrapins, has been forced over the past couple of weeks to defend his recruiting and determination to win. Yow has not commented on the situation in the aftermath of the death of her sister, North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow, who died last month of cancer.

Richard "Rich" Gaver has lived in Funkstown his entire life. Many in the community know him for the work he does on the Funkstown Town Council and for his involvement with the town's Olde Tyme Christmas and Day in the Park. He admits he likes to keep busy and isn't one to sit around. That's why Gaver likes his work as an inspector for Washington County. “It's different every day because every job is different,” Gaver said. Gaver, 51, has worked in the electrical field since he was 16. Before taking a job with Washington County 15 years ago, he worked as a master electrician, getting his start in the field from the former Washington County Vo-Tech, graduating in 1978.

Make no mistake, economic development - or lack of economic development - in Washington County over the next five years will be thick with the fingerprints of former County Commissioner and current EDC board warrior Ron Bowers. Give Bowers credit for this: Outside of, perhaps, Hagerstown Mayor Robert Bruchey, Bowers is the only public official or quasi public official in Washington County who doesn't mind having a bull's-eye sewn squarely to his chest. Shoot away boys, just remember I'm more than capable of returning fire.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Even its name is mostly numbers. Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corp.'s SJ30-2 - the main shell of which is assembled in a plant outside of Martinsburg - is a seven-person jet, including crew, that is defined by its statistics. Jet-setters, consider this: Its cabin pressure is 12 psi, meaning it maintains sea-level pressure at 41,000 feet - the highest ever in the industry; it can travel 2,500 nautical miles without refueling, and it travels at Mach .83, or 560 mph. As the sales brochure puts it, the SJ30-2 will enable its buyers to go "Farther, Faster, Higher for Less!"
