When Christopher Cheswick learned that the drunken driver who killed his son Matthew might be paroled after little more than a year in prison, he turned to Facebook to post his outrage and heartbreak. Carl Braun had a different reaction: He launched an online petition to fight the early release of the man who took his friend's life. "I thought, 'This is not right,'" said Braun, 24. "The punishment does not fit the crime. Matthew's life was worth so much more than that. " Cheswick - friends called him "Cheese," for his camera-ready smile - was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Ocean City last May as he was crossing the Coastal Highway.

Commercially zoned land is a rare commodity in western Howard County, a landscape dominated by farms and houses. Yesterday morning, one of the rare exceptions went on the auction block and sold at a price that turned a lot of heads. The small parcel sits at the intersection of Routes 97 and 144 in Cooksville, the site of a sagging and boarded-up tavern that has seen better days. But the 22 people who showed up to bid - and at least as many to gawk - were not coming for the building. They were interested in its prime real estate, at a busy intersection a half-mile from Interstate 70. "You can tell by the crowd we have today: We have something special in western Howard County," said auctioneer Dan Billig, standing on the gravel parking lot. The winning bid: $400,000 for a lot that is not quite an acre.
