To lovers of Wild West folklore, he's Wyatt Earp - lawman, saloonkeeper, gambler, quick-triggered centerpiece of the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. To Charles Earp Jr. of Catonsville and Pamela Earp Young of Ellicott City, he's cousin Wyatt. That the man who almost single-handedly defines the Wild West would have a couple of relatives in Maryland - and that those relatives would meet by coincidence - is perhaps not as far afield as it might seem. As it turns out, the Earp clan got its start in the United States when Thomas Earp Jr. of Ireland came to the Baltimore area in the 17th century as an indentured servant.

In the wake of his team's fourth straight loss and its 13th in 14 games, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden addressed a host of problems during his Monday news conference, including potential lineup changes and the need for vast improvement in third-down efficiency and the running game. Gruden did not specify which players or positions might be in flux but said he does not intend to replace starting quarterback Kirk Cousins with third-stringer Colt McCoy . In Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Redskins' ninth defeat in a row on the road, Cousins threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter.

GLENDALE, Ariz.  - With the losses mounting, first-year coach Jay Gruden recently conceded that the Washington Redskins are a team still searching for its identity. After Sunday's mistake-filled 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, that identity had taken indisputable shape. The Redskins are a team with no shortage of offensive weapons but one that misfires with fatal frequency. And backup quarterback Kirk Cousins is its chief liability. After keeping Washington in contention through the first half and trailing just 14-13 at the break, Cousins short-circuited instead of rallying when it mattered most.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's cousin locked up a one-year contract for $65,400 to work as a project manager in Baltimore's Department of General Services last week. The city's spending panel — controlled by the mayor — approved the contract for Babila Lima on Wednesday without discussion. Rawlings-Blake abstained, but the city ethics policy doesn't recognize a cousin in its nepotism rules. The city's 118-page ethics code prohibits an elected official from employing a spouse, parent or stepparent, sibling or stepsibling, child, stepchild or foster child, mother-in-law or father-in-law, son-in-law or daughter-in-law, or grandparent or grandchild.

Howard County teachers want the school system to increase staffing, change assessment requirements, increase planning time, increase training and improve the quality of substitute teachers. Those findings -- and others -- are the result of the Candid Conversation with Teachers series -- discussions among teachers, Superintendent Sydney L. Cousin and other top administrators. Eight sessions were held during the 2006-2007 school year, and Cousin announced during a board meeting earlier this month that the series will expand in the coming school year.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Monday with the teenager who allegedly was beaten by Israeli police last week, and Jewish leaders in Baltimore condemned the alleged abduction and killing of his cousin by several Israelis. In Israel, meanwhile, Hamas stepped up rocket fire at southern towns, and the government called up reserve troops in anticipation of a possible escalation of hostilities with the Islamist group that dominates the Gaza Strip. Relatives of 15-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir, a Baltimore native who is visiting family in Israel with his parents and two younger sisters, say he was watching a protest leading up to the funeral of his cousin in East Jerusalem last Thursday when he was detained by Israeli police.

One minute and 46 seconds were left in the game when Albany delivered another magic moment. Attackman Miles Thompson threw a quick pass to younger brother Lyle, who hurled a pass across the crease to cousin Ty Thompson, who flicked in a goal. And then there was one final trick: Unseeded Albany made No. 3 seed Loyola Maryland disappear from the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament. The Thompson trio accounted for 11 goals and seven assists, and getting 13 saves from goalie Blaze Riorden, the Great Danes upset Loyola, 13-6, in the first round of tournament play Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Maurice Clarett will be at Ohio State for the start of classes Sept. 24, and playing for the Buckeyes again is still a possibility, a key member of Clarett's inner circle said yesterday. While NCAA violations have cost him the 2003 season, Clarett can return to the team next year if he meets certain criteria. "All that stuff got blown out of proportion with the NFL releasing that statement," said Clarett's cousin Vince Marrow. Clarett, meanwhile, entered a not-guilty plea through his attorney on a misdemeanor falsification charge in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Craig David Ray and his cousins believed they were beating the odds. Growing up in Baltimore, they knew many young black men who were gunned down or sent to prison. As they entered their 30s, Ray and his family members were thankful for their health and welfare with each passing year. "That's behind us," cousin Larry Barganier said he told Ray not long ago as they talked about the family's good fortune. "We beat the statistics. " But the gray coffin cradling his cousin on Wednesday was a cruel reminder that the "streets are cold," Barganier told mourners at Ray's funeral.
