email@example.com 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.

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.

Standing below the steps of the Franklin County Courthouse at courthouse plaza, 250 people rallied in support of their right to bear arms at Saturday's Second Amendment Freedom Rally in Chambersburg. Some held “Don't Tread on Me” signs, while others displayed guns on their hips or held rifles. “I'm glad I'm at a rally where I could bring my own gun,” said Ted Weaver, one of six speakers at the rally. “More and more, the Second Amendment is being stomped on.” Weaver, who was raised in Maryland and is chief executive officer and founder of Responsibly Armed, said he is disappointed by the strict changes in the gun laws in Maryland in the aftermath of December's massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
