Penn State football coach James Franklin paused Wednesday and - in an exaggerated deadpan manner - shouted a question to a member of his staff. "Hey, Lauren, do we have Maryland on the schedule this year?" the former two-time Terps assistant inquired. "Yeah, we do? Somewhere back there," Franklin said without the hint of a smile. Franklin - once in line to become Maryland's head coach - knows full well that the Terps will travel to Penn State on Nov. 1 as part of Maryland's inaugural Big Ten season.

One of the first trips Mark Turgeon made after succeeding Gary Williams at Maryland was to Baltimore. Not only did Turgeon have to make sure Nick Faust, then a senior at City, was still coming to College Park, but Maryland's new coach also wanted the city's political and basketball powerbrokers to get to know the relative unknown who had spent little time on the East Coast. A little more than two years later, Baltimore remains a priority for Turgeon in terms of his program's fans and future players.

Toronto is one of Canada's most cosmopolitan cities, and one of the most ethnically diverse. In fact, it holds an annual event called Caravan that celebrates the various cultures there.For nine days in June, Caravan showcases the ethnic complexion of Toronto.Groups block out spaces in "pavilions" that feature dances, costume fashion shows and a chance to taste the foods of the countries represented. This year there will be 45 international locations across metropolitan Toronto.After paying an admission fee, visitors are issued "passports" to be stamped upon entry at each of the pavilions.

My family had a never-fail way of dealing with Baltimore's equatorial heat and humidity: They left town.That pilgrimage to the Eastern Shore and everything that accompanied it made Cleopatra's barge rides seem like a rowboat outing.When my grandparents, with whom I lived with my parents, decided to quit their Guilford Avenue home, they did not do so lightly. They packed heavily, they dressed heavily and they ate heavily.In the early 1950s, after the Bay Bridge had opened, it was not really a bad drive to the ocean.

KUKES, Albania -- Multiple questions and scores of missing refugees remained yesterday in the aftermath of bombings of Kosovo refugee caravans, despite the admission by the NATO military command that one of its jets apparently delivered a strike in error.Exactly how many convoys were blitzed and who dropped the bombs on which ones are the critical questions.Refugees still reeling from one of the Wednesday assaults adamantly refused to believe that NATO could hit refugees, and they just as stridently demanded that NATO continue and even step up its attacks on Yugoslavia.

CENTRALIA, Wash. -- Like a superstitious ballplayer who won't change his socks during a streak, President Clinton climbed back on a bus yesterday, despite a steady rain, a double-digit lead in the polls and little evidence that Bob Dole is even contesting him in the Pacific Northwest.Even with Clinton and Vice President Al Gore asserting that theirs was the team to lead the nation into the 21st century, an old-fashioned bus caravan has become their transportation of choice in the buoyant days since last month's Chicago convention.

There was a questionable forecast for Thursday night, making an evening boat cruise out of Annapolis an uncertainty for Maryland football coach Randy Edsall and a couple of his counterparts who came from College Park to schmooze with fans over dinner and drinks. But the winds settled and the luxury yacht "Catherine Murray" took off for a smooth hourlong sail on the Severn River. After a rocky start to his tenure with the Terps , Edsall should hope that the second installment of the school's "Coaches Caravan" portends well for his third season and beyond.

One hundred and ninety six people were murdered in Baltimore last year. Recent figures show our violent crime rate is more than two and a half times the national average. Many of these crimes spawned from the illegal nature of the drug trade, and the vast majority of them will go unsolved because so much police time is spent arresting drug users and low-level dealers. But this weekend, a cross-country caravan of victims of the drug war brings a message of change to Baltimore. Dozens of Mexican and U.S.-based drug war survivors, law enforcement officers and others with firsthand experience with failed drug laws have been traveling for weeks now, educating people about the destruction our policies have wrought and the futility of continuing them.

It didn't quite measure up to making an emergency landing in the middle of the Hudson River, but as Harvey White stood beside the 120-foot chunk of airplane on a ramp off Interstate 95 near Perryville on Monday, he felt a sense of conquest. White, a resident of Rising Sun, and his wife, Ruth, had spent an hour and a half in their SUV trying to track down a unique procession: a caravan of 35 vehicles accompanying the fuselage of the US Airways plane that splash-landed in January 2009.

A man driving a Dodge Caravan that had been reported stolen in Virginia crashed yesterday morning into two vehicles on Interstate 95 near White Marsh after being chased by a Maryland Transportation Authority police officer, authorities said. Officer Greg Day stopped the 1998 Dodge Caravan about 9:20 a.m. yesterday because its driver was not wearing a seat belt, police said. A routine check of the vehicle revealed it had been stolen in Henrico County, Va., police said. The man drove off, and Day chased him north on I-95 to just past the White Marsh exit, police said.

A 15-year-old boy being pursued by police was killed after the 2003 Dodge Caravan he was driving slammed into a brick wall and spun over early yesterday about a mile from his home in Odenton, the Anne Arundel County Police Department said. Police identified the driver as Craig Hall Croxton of the 8600 block of Sycamore Glen Lane. Croxton was a ninth-grader at Arundel High School. "We don't know what possessed him to take this van," said Croxton's grandmother, Delores Thomas. An officer in a patrol car spotted the minivan, heading south on Piney Orchard Parkway without its lights on about 2 a.m. police said.
