Carroll and Frederick county residents, civic organizations, schools, groups and property owners are being invited to take part in a stream naming contest to have their suggestions officially designated by the U.S. Geological Survey. The contest, known as "The Monocacy Starts Here," is sponsored by the Monocacy Scenic River Citizens Advisory Board. Board members said in a press release this week that they recently realized that many streams flowing into the Monocacy still remain unnamed — more than 400 years after the region's first maps were drawn.

Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

I was very pleased to read your recent editorial on gun control opponents in Carroll County ("Carroll Co.'s nullification fantasy," May 24). Carroll Country is an integral part of the Baltimore metropolitan area, and despite the current state of denial our five county commissioners are in, Carroll is also connected to the Chesapeake Bay and regional environmental concerns. Despite the moat that the current commissioners have built around their make-believe fortress, the vast majority of Carroll County citizens are embarrassed by efforts such as the commissioners' recent, meaningless resolution to declare Carroll a weapons sanctuary; deprive public schools of funding while creating an unmanageable slush fund for fundamentalist home-schoolers; ignore state ethics law requirements for elected officials and attempt to avoid state planning mandates for responsible growth.

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

Defending Carroll County champion: Century The Carroll County girls soccer picture may be the cloudiest of any in the Baltimore area. Defending champion Century, which went 6-0-1 in league play last year, may have enough pieces to make it two straight. Jaci Buteua, Alyssa Malanik and Hannah Warther are experienced, talent and versatile -- giving coach Sara Figuly plenty of flexibility within their lineup.  Manchester Valley won their second straight Class 1A state crown, but have holes to fill with 11 players lost to graduation.

When Debbie Buenger, a former elementary school physical education teacher now at East Middle School in Westminster, introduced the game of cricket to her class one rainy afternoon last year, the excitement blew her away. "The kids absolutely loved it," Buenger said. Within the first hour, the class started to grasp the basics and was off playing its first competitive game. There were a few hitches, like remembering to hold onto the bat, but overall Buenger couldn't have been more surprised.

Reporter John Fritze's recent article showed what hateful hypocrites the Carroll Commissioners, Del. Justin Ready and Rep. Andy Harris really are ( "Carroll Co. officials push back on shelter for immigrant children," July 11). They are joined by the local tea party group, which suggested in an email blast to its members that the children be met by an armed militia if they are sent to Westminster. The Carroll Commissioners are quite fond of publicly praying for God's guidance at their meetings.

With first place in the Carroll County on the line at home against North Carroll, the Liberty football program was more than up for the challenge. Thanks to an offensive attack that did what it had to, as well as shutdown defense in the second half, the Lions ended the Panthers' undefeated start Thursday night, 22-13. "I'm feeling pretty pumped right now," said Liberty quarterback Austin Bode, who threw for two touchdowns in the win. "I thought this was a great battle throughout the entire game.

North Carroll wide receiver Zack Sherman has made a name for himself across Carroll County through four weeks of football this fall. Week 2, the Panthers (4-0, 1-0 county) took down Williamsport thanks to four touchdowns on four receptions and a county-record 294 yards from Sherman. Since then, he's made his mark on defense, and special teams as well - kicking a 31-yard field goal against Smithsburg that was the difference-maker. Sherman is undecided about where he'll attend college next fall, but is interested in pursuing either mathematics or accounting as a potential major.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

The number of homes for sale in the Baltimore metro region climbed to the highest level in nearly three years last month, but closed sales failed to follow suit, a mismatch that reflects weakness in the housing market, analysts said. Sales in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties dipped in July, falling 2 percent to 2,945, according to a monthly report published Monday. Meanwhile, the number of homes on the market rose 22.5 percent year-over-year, reaching 13,856 — more than any time since November 2011, according to the data provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence, a subsidiary of the MRIS multiple listing service.

Communities throughout the Baltimore region are scheduled to host events Tuesday to mark the annual National Night Out against crime. In Waverly, though, the gathering designed to be a deterrent to criminal activity is also being billed as a “vigil” in memory of 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, the local youngster killed in gunfire Friday while playing on a porch along Old York Road. The group, Better Waverly, is hosting the event beginning at 6 p.m. at the corner of Gorsuch and Ellerslie avenues.
