By contrast, the reservoir dipped to 26 feet below crest during the drought in 1999. Loch Raven Reservoir crested March 30, and water levels at Prettyboy Reservoir are 2 1/2 feet below crest and rapidly rising, the agency said.

Former Dunbar star William Crest's career in West Virginia has gotten off to an unusual start. While it appears unlikely the quarterback will have the opportunity to start with the Mountaineers this season, coach Dana Holgorsen has decided  Crest likely won't be redshirted . Perhaps even more surprising, however, was the reported sight of Crest fielding punts during practice this month. Apparently, Crest jogged out to the field with other returners on his own, not at a coach's urging.

Oakland -- A lot of lips are flapping about restoring the Chesapeake Bay. Checks are being written, partnerships are being forged and promises are being made. That's as it should be. No feature defines Maryland more than that big expanse of water that runs from Susquehanna Flats down to Pocomoke Sound. Without a robust bay, the Free State ain't worth squat. A tool in the restoration effort is the O'Malley administration's BayStat program, which helps decide which pieces of land and water need to be bought and protected.

Dunbar coach Lawrence Smith knows which William Crest moment is his favorite. Crest, the Dunbar quarterback, had already scored two rushing touchdowns against City this past October when the Poets faced a fourth-and-9 from the Knights' 12-yard line, trailing 26-22. The call with 12.4 seconds remaining was a pass, but the senior saw an opening to the left and darted down the sideline, stopping only after his outstretched arms toppled the front pylon of the end zone for the game-winning score.

The pungent smell of chlorine bleach permeates the Hutchison home, a handsome four-bedroom split-level just outside Westminster. The Hutchisons, a family of four, struggle daily to conserve water. They fear their well will run dry. So they cook with bottled water. They wash their clothes at the public laundry. And they clean their kitchen with bleach rather than soap and water. "Water is a necessity of life. You can't flush the commode, cook a meal or bathe without it," said Alice Hutchison, 59. "Most people never give it a second thought.

Dunbar quarterback William Crest knew his team needed a jolt Friday night when it trailed Patterson after the first quarter. The senior was happy to provide one. Crest tossed a perfect 31-yard pass that Jerrell Jenkins, in tight coverage, caught over his shoulder in the end zone. Less than a minute later, after an interception by Aaron Savage, Crest connected with Jenkins on almost the exact same play, this time for a 33-yard touchdown. The Clippers never recovered from that one-two punch, and No. 5 Dunbar rolled to a 42-6 victory in a Baltimore City Division I game on Military Appreciation Night at William F. "Sugar" Cain Field in East Baltimore.
