WASHINGTON -- When archaeologists excavated 18 graves at a 3-century-old Calvert County plantation a few years ago, they had no headstones, no diaries, no letters and no church records. Nothing to tell the stories of those long-vanished colonists.Now Douglas H. Ubelaker, an anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institution, has made the bones talk.By studying wear and tear and the shapes and sizes of the bones, Dr. Ubelaker has produced grim snapshots of life on a mid-17th century Maryland settlement: of shoulders strained by heavy lifting and hauling, of clay pipes puffed habitually through clenched teeth, of bones made brittle by disease, of malnutrition and early death.

Tavi Thomas ended the Oakland Mills dream of a perfect season Thursday night. Thomas drilled a 3-pointer with nine seconds left that gave visiting Calvert a come-from-behind 69-67 victory over No. 6 Oakland Mills in the Class 2A South region championship. Oakland Mills entered the game as the only unbeaten public school team left in the state - for boys - and the Scorpions finished with a 24-1 record. Oakland Mills was trying to make the state final four for the first time in 12 years, and a state championship would have meant the Scorpions did it with a perfect record.

It took two visits before Evan Phoenix told the Central Connecticut State coaching staff that he wanted to play basketball there. In the Calvert Hall junior's mind, though, the first trip was more than enough. “When I first stepped on the campus, it just seemed like the environment I wanted to be in,” Phoenix said. “Everything just seemed right.” Phoenix committed to the Blue Devils last week. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward also considered offers from American, Hartford and UMBC.

The tiny brass ring bearing the initials "CC" presents a mystery: Did it belong to Charles Calvert, the third Baron Baltimore? And can the St. Mary's College of Maryland archaeologists who unearthed it ever prove its origins? The archaeologists discovered the ring this summer at a dig at a Charles County site that was a refuge for Piscataway Indians who were pushed from their homelands by other tribes and the arrival of European settlers in the 1600s. The small ring, perhaps designed to be worn on a pinkie finger, might have been a signet ring used to seal documents, said Julia King, the St. Mary's professor who oversaw the dig. King believes the ring might have been used by a representative of Charles Calvert to conduct diplomatic relations with the Piscataway tribe.
