WASHINGTON - The Democrats' dream of an overpowering, filibuster-proof majority in the U.S. Senate is officially on ice. Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss held on to his Georgia Senate seat in a runoff yesterday, fending off a challenge from Democrat Jim Martin. Martin had forced a runoff last month after keeping Chambliss from attaining 50 percent of the vote, a requirement for office under Georgia law. As it stands, Democrats will control 58 seats in the newly seated Senate, where 60 votes are needed to cut off debate on a bill and force a floor vote.

ATLANTA - Jim Martin was never supposed to be this close to a U.S. Senate seat. A relative unknown in Georgia politics, the former head of the state's Department of Human Resources had to survive two primaries before securing the privilege of receiving what promised to be a whomping at the hands of Republican incumbent Sen. Saxby Chambliss. After all, this isn't some swing state such as Ohio or Florida. This is Georgia, where John McCain topped Obama by five points and President George W. Bush won by 17 points four years ago. In 2002, Chambliss was able to unseat a decorated Vietnam War veteran, Max Cleland, in part by questioning his patriotism.

When Chris Chambliss declined an offer from the New York Yankees to be their first base coach two weeks ago, he knew he had made a difficult and relatively courageous decision. He had passed on an opportunity to move to the major leagues and earn a higher salary, not to mention the licensing money that has made major-league coaching far more rewarding.Chambliss had opted for a third year of managing at the Double A level, a second year working in the Atlanta Braves organization.Now the decision appears wise.

RICHMOND, Va. -- Driving along Monument Avenue, past the massive stone statues of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate warriors, Charles Chambliss said in disgust, "Somehow the Confederacy made the losers look honorable." In recent weeks, a downtown mural of Lee has been set on fire and his reputation defended in a dispute over how history should be marked here in the capital of the Old Confederacy. It's a fight that heritage groups say embodies a resolve by civil rights leaders to rid the South of Confederate symbols.

In the first major step toward building a campaign team, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has hired a political director whose major credit is the successful race he ran to unseat a former Georgia senator and crusading war veteran that has Democrats there still crying foul four years later. Bo Harmon, a veteran of the National Republican Congressional Committee and other GOP organizations, as well as manager of Saxby Chambliss' campaign against then-Sen. Max Cleland, said yesterday that he is coming to Maryland to get the word out about Ehrlich's accomplishments.

WASHINGTON - Despite his conviction last month on corruption charges, Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, the nation's longest-serving Republican senator, clung tenuously to his seat yesterday as congressional Democrats exulted in their election gains elsewhere around the country. While the Democrats expanded their majorities in the House and the Senate, the outcome of a number of races could remain in doubt for several more weeks. Georgia's Senate race appeared headed for a runoff in December, and the Senate race in Oregon was too close to call.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. now counts on everyone living in the state of Maryland forgetting there is a battered man named Max Cleland. Ehrlich hires Bo Harmon, whose actions were a national disgrace, to run his re-election campaign for governor. In the most infamous campaign Harmon ran, he confronted the war hero Cleland, who gave up three of his limbs in Vietnam and became a U.S. senator from Georgia, and he lumped Cleland with Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden so he could win an election.

MADISON, Wis. - When it was all over, after Wisconsin repelled his team's final comeback attempt, Maryland junior point guard John Gilchrist fell to the floor, his head resting against the Kohl Center court as one of the toughest nights of his college career came to an end. The picture symbolized the Terps' frustration. On a night where Gilchrist shot 2-for-14 and Maryland struggled to combat both Wisconsin's home-court advantage and Badgers sophomore forward Alando Tucker, the 12th-ranked Terps still had a chance at the end, but ultimately fell to No. 25 Wisconsin, 69-64, before a sellout crowd of 17,142 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

It was probably the worst-kept secret in town - the identity of the suspects in the September 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., in which four black girls were killed. And yet because enough people kept quiet for years, only one suspect has ever been brought to justice. But now, what was said, even bragged about, at family gatherings or in offhand conversations may finally become public, as testimony in the first of two trials against surviving suspects begins in Birmingham this week.

Jane and Peter Campbell-Chambliss have to watch their step when walking along the edge of their Little Round Bay property.If not, they're likely to trip over a couple of horseshoe crabs mating at the edge of the Severn River.And that's just the beginning. From the deck of their Crownsville house, the Campbell-Chamblisses can observe a veritable "Who's Who" of Chesapeake Bay wildlife -- osprey, swans, Canada geese, ducks, otters, muskrats, crabs, fish, snakes and bald eagles."The Severn is a protected and watched and very quiet river," Mrs. Campbell-Chambliss noted, pointing out nearby St. Helena Island.

BOBBY FRANK Cherry was convicted of murder Wednesday, so why am I not a happy man? Cherry is the man who, with Robert Chambliss, Thomas Blanton Jr. and a fourth despicable worm who died before a good district attorney could get hold of him, bombed the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., on Sept. 15, 1963. Four girls - Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, all 14, and 11-year-old Denise McNair - were killed in the blast. The girls were African-Americans, members of a church that had become the hub of the civil rights movement in Birmingham.
