Not since Brooks Robinson has any Arkansan been more welcome in Maryland than David Wrightam. And in the tiny Western Maryland hamlet of Williamsport, he may be getting top billing -- at least since last Friday, when he visited the town's Desert Rose Cafe in answer to a challenge from Howard County Executive and Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Ken Ulman. It seems Ulman was on a campaign swing through Western Maryland last week when he stopped at the Desert Rose and noticed a U.S. map owner Rose Harris had hanging on the wall.

Capper to poor decision Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel Isn't the Arkansas radio reporter who got fired for wearing a University of Florida cap into Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's news conference actually better off? Now when somebody asks her where she works, she doesn't have to turn red and answer sheepishly, "Hog Sports Radio. " But I digress. How far should partisan broadcasters go to support their team? Well, if you are directly paid by the team (like college and NFL play-by-play broadcasters)

Teacher training in an Arkansas high school this summer doesn't include just books ... it also includes guns. The Clarksville School District, which is just northwest of Little Rock, is holding training for teachers inside the high school to help them learn how to carry a weapon and respond to a school shooting, like the Newtown shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead in Connecticut last December. An Associated Press story says that a little known Arkansas law allows for armed security guards to be on school campuses.

The whispers reached Carroll Washington III like a game of telephone. Some said the Edmondson grad had gone to trade school. Another rumor placed him at a Division II university in Pennsylvania. Speculation on the whereabouts of the quarterback who, as a sophomore, led the Red Storm to the 2006 Class 2A state football championship, almost always boiled down to this: Whatever happened to Carroll Washington? During the two years after Washington graduated from Edmondson in 2009, the short answer to that question was working out, taking classes at Baltimore City Community College and wondering where he went wrong in his quest to play Division I football.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The two races at the NCAA cross country championships yesterday at Lehigh University couldn't have been more different.The men determined their pecking order in the first mile. Washington State's Josephat Kapkory bolted to the front and was never challenged, and Arkansas used pack tactics to claim its fourth consecutive team title.Villanova made it five straight team and individual titles on the women's side, but two-time winner Carole Zajac waited until the second mile to break away from a crowded pack, and the Wildcats' 66-72 edge over Arkansas wasn't official until the video was reviewed.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Finally, Arkansas gets an opponent that feels even more unappreciated than the Razorbacks.Tired of the expectations that accompanied bringing back every starter from last year's champion, it's an ornery bunch of Razorbacks that will face Virginia in the Midwest Regional final at Kemper Arena today.The Razorbacks have been under the microscope all season, and the scrutiny has increased with three close calls in the NCAA tournament.The Cavaliers, meanwhile, lost their top player to a broken ankle five weeks ago, and have been hanging off to the side since the NCAA basketball committee seeded them fourth and thus deemed them the weakest of the four teams that shared first in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Neither Arkansas nor Kansas spent much time studying the other's tendencies yesterday in preparation for today's Southeast Regional final in the National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball tournament.The top-seeded Razorbacks will try to run and press fullcourt against Kansas (25-7) in this contrasting matchup at the Charlotte Coliseum. The fourth-seeded Jayhawks will try to slow down Arkansas (34-3) by setting up their half-court offense, and wear down their opponents as much mentally as physically.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Arkansas center Oliver Miller has big feet. Unfortunately for the Razorbacks, he also has a big mouth. The two parts of Miller's body, no strangers to be sure, met again yesterday.Miller, who talks nearly as well as he plays, was quoted in an Arkansas newspaper expressing his disappointment that the Razorbacks were not playing Indiana in the final of the NCAA Southeast Regional at the Charlotte Coliseum."I always wanted to play against a Bob Knight-coached team," Miller was quoted as saying.

Mike Waddell, whose 2 1/2-year tenure as Towson's athletic director was marked both by the tremendous growth in its football and men's basketball programs and by the controversy surrounding the elimination of men's soccer and the proposed dropping of baseball, is leaving to become a senior associate athletic director at Arkansas. Waddell's departure comes a few months before the school is scheduled to open Tiger Arena and several months after Waddell found himself embroiled in an often nasty debate that ultimately reached the state legislature and was - at least temporarily - resolved with extra funding for the baseball program.

Bobby Spivey can walk through the halls of Sparrows Point High School without drawing much attention from anyone aside from his group of close friends. But put the 16-year-old in the small Southern hamlet of Stuttgart, Ark. - the self-proclaimed "Rice and Duck Capital of the World" - and Spivey is something of a celebrity. Given his age and achievements to date, Spivey might become to duck calling what a teenage prodigy named Tiger Woods became to golf. Spivey had been to Stuttgart for the International Duck Calling Championship before last year's event in late November, finishing near the bottom the first time he tried in 2009 and coming in third in 2010.

As the amateur signing deadline draws nearer, the Orioles are still negotiating with their top pick, LSU right-hander Kevin Gausman, who was the fourth overall selection in the June draft. “We are making progress,” said Orioles' director of scouting Gary Rajsich on Thursday morning. “We're waiting to hear their next proposal.” The Orioles and Gausman have until 4:59 p.m. Friday to agree to a deal. If they can't, Gausman would return to LSU for his junior year while the Orioles would get a compensatory pick, the fifth overall, in the 2013 draft as well as their usual first-round pick.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Vowing to "reinvent government" and redefine the Democratic Party, Gov. Bill Clinton jumped into the 1992 presidential race yesterday.The Arkansas Democrat called for "a new covenant" between government and the people, an appeal to the resentments of middle-class voters who have turned to the Republican Party in recent elections.Mr. Clinton is also adopting the theme of generational change.His anthem is the rock song "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow," performed by Fleetwood Mac. The candidate lip-synched those lyrics as he and his family waved to supporters at his announcement ceremony in downtown Little Rock.

The most visually stunning probable entrant in the upcoming Kentucky Derby could also become the favorite with a good showing at the Blue Grass Stakes this weekend. Hansen, a nearly all white colt trained by Mike Maker, is the 6-5 favorite in Lexington . He'll be challenged by Howe Great, trained by Maryland-based Graham Motion and owned by Team Valor International. Motion and Team Valor, of course, won last year's Kentucky Derby with Animal Kingdom, and have another possible Derby horse in Went the Day Well.
