BEL AIR -- Just a few miles from the sprawl of suburbia, coyotes -- the sly critters of Wild West legend -- have been stalking hillside farms by night and devouring sheep.Farmers have heard the nocturnal predators' unmistakable yelps, spotted them scurrying across pastures and barnyards at dawn and dusk, seen their remains in traps and awakened to find the carnage they leave behind.In the Churchville and Darlington areas, just northeast of the county seat here, farmers said last week that they have lost some 50 sheep to coyotes since last fall.

WASHINGTON - - Alexander Semin had a goal and three assists to help the Washington Capitals beat the Phoenix Coyotes, 4-2, on Saturday night for their sixth consecutive win. Lauri Korpikoski scored two goals for Phoenix, which was playing its first game on the road since Jan. 7. Alexander Ovechkin had an empty-net goal with five seconds left for his 33rd of the season as Washington improved to 18-3-3 at home. Semin set up the Capitals' first score with a nice centering pass through the Coyotes' defense, and his goal was set up by an even flashier pass from Tomas Fleischmann.

Hereford waited 20 years for a return trip to the state title game. The wait for a championship, however, continues. Clarksburg took command with a pair of early goals, and the Montgomery County school won its first state title with a 3-0 victory over No. 7 Hereford in the Class 3A championship game Thursday night at foggy UMBC Stadium. The Bulls last made it to a state title game in 1989 when they shared the Class 2A championship with Andover. Hereford also split the Class 1A state title each of the two previous years and then have made it to the state semifinals six times since, but the Bulls couldn't get back to the finals until this game.

Is it possible I saw a coyote the other night? I would swear it was. Were they introduced here, or did they extend their range naturally? Originating out West, coyotes have been migrating east since the early 20th century. Though shy, coyotes have been sighted in every Maryland county. Their main western predators, the gray wolf and cougar, have not followed them east. Eastern coyotes have adapted well, sometimes growing larger and heavier than their western ancestors. Small pets make easy prey, along with our plentiful squirrels and other wildlife.

Washington Capitals general manager David Poile said he was encouraged by his meeting with free agent Jeremy Roenick yesterday, but the team has not made an offer to the four-time NHL All-Star.The rights to Roenick, 26, were traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Phoenix Coyotes last week, postponing yesterday's meeting, which was scheduled before the trade. Signing Roenick, who twice has scored 50 goals and has eclipsed the 100-point mark three times in the past five seasons, is a top priority, Poile said, and he will continue to talk with Roenick's agent every day.However, the nature of yesterday's meeting was not necessarily to complete a deal.

If you think you've seen more red foxes in the county than usual, you're probably right. The little bushy-tailed critters are enjoying life in Harford and nearby counties, judging from reports suggesting an increase in population. "We have a tremendous amount of fox here, and they have gotten rid of all the small game, like rabbits, pheasant and quail," said Robert Tibbs, who has a beef cattle farm in the Level area. Red fox sightings rose by a third in the region that includes Harford and neighboring counties, according to the most recent available state survey of bowhunters.
