firstname.lastname@example.org COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Milton Harris is a product of guidance and direction. Listening to both influences has made him the person and the football player he is today. When it comes to direction, the University of Maryland defensive back has looked to his parents, his cousin - former Maryland defensive back Madieu Williams - and coach Ralph Friedgen. It has turned Harris from walk-on transfer into impact starter in the Terrapins' secondary. But when it comes to direction, Harris gets his game plan from a higher power.

In the 1950 comedy “Kill the Umpire,” Bill “Two Call” Johnson (played by William Bendix) is chased by a vengeance-seeking mob of fans after he made what they believed to be a bad call in a minor league baseball game.

A legal wrangle over where Maryland ends and Virginia begins is continuing, despite a Washington County circuit judge's recent ruling that Maryland's border ends at the water's edge on the south side of the Potomac River. Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr. granted a motion by river-ride operators River & Trail Outfitters Inc. of Knoxville, Md., and River Riders Inc. of Harpers Ferry, W.Va., to dismiss a lawsuit by Potomac Shores Inc., which owns a section of the river bottom. In its suit, Potomac Shores claimed that river-rafting operators were using land on the Virginia shore that was within the boundary of Maryland, due to changes in the river's level and course over the years.
