ON THE GULF OF MEXICO (AP) -- In a significant step toward stopping the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, BP said Wednesday mud that was forced down its blown-out well was holding back the flow of crude in the Gulf of Mexico and it was in a "static condition. " Workers stopped pumping mud in after about eight hours of their "static kill" procedure and were monitoring the well to ensure it remained stable, BP said. "It's a milestone," BP PLC spokeswoman Sheila Williams said.

COVINGTON, La. (AP) -- BP kept pumping heavy mud into its blown-out well beneath the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, but the company's chief executive cautioned it will be two more days before anyone knows if the latest fix attempt will end the uncontrolled flow of crude that has already become the worst oil spill in U.S. history. BP CEO Tony Hayward had projected a resolution to the so-called "top kill" as soon as Thursday afternoon, but an 18-hour delay in the injection of heavyweight mud scuttled those plans.

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- His entire head was covered in a coat of brown mud, as if it had been dipped like an ice cream cone in watery chocolate. There was mud in his eyelashes and dried mud on his teeth when he spoke. The blue and white of his eyes were nearly all that had been left unscathed. "I love it. It's awesome," said Allen Hess, 24, of Smithsburg. Hess was on a team called the Maniacal Mudslingers, representing Turning Point of Washington County on Saturday at the 2009 MUDD Volleyball Tournament to benefit the Community Free Clinic.

HAGERSTOWN - Cathy James played volleyball in high school, but it's a safe bet she probably never had to hose off after a match. On Saturday morning, she was doing just that, holding up a muddy shoe as she waited in line for a blast of clean, cold water. She was one of the hundreds of people who took part in the sixth annual Citi MUDD Volleyball tournament, a fundraiser for the Community Free Clinic in Hagerstown.

The pits are about 1 1/2 feet deep. They are covered in 6 inches of topsoil, then filled with water. The teams have 12 players. They arrive dressed in T-shirts and shorts. They bump, spike, slide, splash and leave drenched in thick, pasty mud. This fundraising recipe has been a 14-year jackpot known as the MUDD Volleyball Tournament to benefit the Community Free Clinic of Washington County. The annual event oozed and splashed around again Saturday behind Citi's Family Center north of Hagerstown.
