As weather watchers eye Tropical Storm Isaac in the southeastern Caribbean, what is likely to become Tropical Storm Joyce isn't far behind it in the Atlantic. We are still a few days away from an idea of where Isaac might impact the U.S., if at all. Meteorologists are debating whether the storm, currently expected to near south Florida by Monday morning, will track toward the Gulf of Mexico or up the East Coast. This is getting a lot of attention because of the Republican National Convention in Tampa next week.

Stevenson's first loss of the season - a 31-10 thumping by Middle Atlantic Conference foe Lycoming on Saturday - dropped the Mustangs out of any mention from the latest American Football Coaches Association Division III poll. But as the program enjoys its upcoming bye week, coach Ed Hottle said there is still much to be optimistic about - including retaining a shot at what would be the school's first league championship in football. “All of our goals and things we want to accomplish are still very much out there for us,” he said Wednesday.

A cocaine trafficking ring that for years distributed "vast amounts" of Honduran cocaine throughout the mid-Atlantic region has been busted, and three Maryland residents and 25 Virginia residents involved have been arrested, according to federal prosecutors. The drug ring, based in Northern Virginia, routinely paid couriers to fly into the United States from Honduras with cocaine stashed in shoes, decorative wooden frames and other "innocuous items" that would blend in with their luggage, according to a statement on the bust released Thursday by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Seventy miles off Ocean City , scientists aboard the federal research vessel Henry B. Bigelow are exploring a lush underwater landscape that until recently few would have imagined - colorful corals clinging to the rocky slopes of deep-sea canyons. On this and other research cruises, remotely guided submersible cameras have captured scenes of bubblegum corals, sea whips and more growing in the dark, hundreds to thousands of feet below the Atlantic Ocean's surface. Other smaller patches dot the ocean floor in shallower waters closer to shore.

Opening the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf to geophysical activities represents a unique opportunity for the nation to assess available resources and to do it in an environmentally responsible manner ( "Some Md. lawmakers oppose seismic testing," Aug. 4). Seismic survey activities are temporary and transitory and are the least intrusive way to explore the earth's geology and its dynamic processes. Seismic surveys provide the needed information about the value and location of key resources, enabling the government to evaluate the information and make informed decisions.

The dark specks swirling around in big water-filled tanks at the Columbus Center hardly look like fish, much less the kings of the ocean. But from these tiny beginnings, a team of Maryland scientists hopes to unlock the secrets of "farming" Atlantic bluefin tuna, one of the most prized fish on the planet — and one of the most threatened. "For me, it's the Holy Grail," said Yonathan Zohar, a professor of marine biotechnology with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and head of the aquaculture research center at the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology at the Inner Harbor.

Eight Democratic members of Maryland's congressional delegation wrote President Obama Monday urging him to reconsider his administration's plan to allow seismic testing for oil and gas off the mid-Atlantic coast. In a jointly signed letter, the eight called seismic testing the first major step toward opening the Atlantic Ocean to offshore drilling, which carries the risk of oil spills. But they warned that the tests themselves would be "incredibly harmful to marine mammals and fisheries in the region," generating "dynamite-like" blasts of compressed air underwater that could hurt whales, dolphins and fish.
