This is how I imagined the meeting at MTV went when they first discussed "Death Valley" Producer 1: Hey, you know how zombies are popular? Producer 2: Oh yeah. And vampires. I hear they're big . Producer 3: And werewolves. We already have a show about a teenage werewolf, but why not another? Producer 4: Oh my God, you guys. Why not put them all in the same show! Producers 1, 2 and 3 : Genius! MTV's latest attempt at scripted fare is the horror-comedy "Death Valley," premiering at 10:30 p.m. Aug. 29. It's set in California's San Fernando Valley, not in the desert.

Most of the long-struggling Owings Mills Mall will be torn down starting in 2013 to make room for a $65 million retail development, a move that Baltimore County officials hope will complement other burgeoning projects in an area targeted for growth. Mall owner General Growth Properties will work with Kimco Realty to redevelop and "de-mall" the 1-million-square-foot site — a move that mirrors the remaking of a shopping area in Hunt Valley. Developers said Thursday that they did not know how much of the mall they would demolish, but they expect anchor stores Macy's and JC Penney, as well as the AMC movie theater, to stay.

CLEMSON, S.C. -- The claim around the Atlantic Coast Conference is that Death Valley hasn't been as inhospitable to visitors since Danny Ford left town.Try telling that to Maryland.It doesn't matter if Clemson is coached by Ford, Ken Hatfield or Tommy West, or if there are 40,000 or 80,000 making noise, the result is the same when the Terps visit. Points, let alone victories, are hard to come by here for Maryland, which yesterday stumbled to a 13-0 loss to the Tigers before an announced crowd of 68,000.

At Arundel they call the baseball field Death Valley.Considering the Wildcats have won an unprecedented six state titles (1976-77-81-87-91-93), one national title (1993), nine regional and 14 county titles while going 344-92 under Bernie Walter in 21 years (through '94), the diamond was aptly named.Opponents were doomed upon arrival in Gambrills, thus the name Death Valley was more than appropriate -- until this season. Foes have been calling it Happy Valley in 1995.Seventh-ranked Arundel is off to a 5-3 start with all three defeats at home, where for most of Walter's 22 years as head coach the Wildcats have been nearly invincible.

The phrase "Death Valley" conjures up images of scorching hot deserts, but a visit to the California national park in the winter usually brings moderate weather and unlimited opportunities for exploration. This huge park, approximately the size of Connecticut, contains an amazing variety of unusual scenery; one often has the sensation of wandering on a distant planet.

Jack Kerouac has been ditched for David Simon. Those Baltimore area soul-searching twentysomethings who went on the road in an old green school bus two weeks ago are utterly, embarrassingly homesick. Hey, even those gutsy Beat poets must have missed their moms now and then. Traveler Jon Yeager, 22, has put down Kerouac's On the Road and is reading Simon's The Corner just to get by, eating up all those references to Charm City. Beth Lawrence has been calling home twice a week, talking to her family for 10 to 40 minutes.

Sometimes a person needs to hunker down in a place that dwarfs headlines and silences cell phones. You don't have to be a survivalist to understand that, though I did think about renting a Hummer to make me invincible on a recent trip to Death Valley National Park, about 300 miles northeast of Los Angeles. On two previous visits, I had seen all the popular, easy-to-reach sights, including the sand dunes near Stovepipe Wells, Scotty's Castle and Zabriskie Point. This time I wanted to drive some of the park's back roads to more remote beauty spots -- Saline Valley warm springs, Eureka Dunes and Titus Canyon in the Grapevine Mountains at the park's eastern boundary.

Adrian Moten's face was streaked with tears. Maryland had just defeated Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in the season opener. The senior linebacker was peering into the lower stands, as he routinely does after games, to make eye contact with his mother and other relatives. It wasn't whom he saw that overwhelmed Moten. Rather, it was who he didn't see in the crowd — his late father. Moten became so distraught that an assistant coach came over to the bench to check on him. Five months earlier, on an April morning two days after Adrian's 22nd birthday, Anthony Moten had died of a heart attack.

By winning four of its first five games, Maryland has already managed to double its win total from last year's downward spiral of a season. But this year's most challenging stretch awaits: four road games in the next five weeks. It would be a difficult period for any team, but it is especially formidable for a Terps team that has made nine straight trips to opponents' stadiums without a win. The Terps appeared flustered by crowd noise, committing a handful of offensive penalties in the early stages of a 31-17 loss at West Virginia in their last away game Sept.

C.J. Spiller scored a touchdown Saturday in his final game at Death Valley and No. 18 Clemson beat Virginia, 34-21, on the day the Tigers clinched their first trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. The Tigers (8-3, 6-2 ACC) won their sixth straight game but had the Atlantic Division wrapped up as they kicked off, thanks to North Carolina's 31-13 victory against Boston College. Clemson will face Coastal Division winner Georgia Tech in two weeks in Tampa, Fla. Spiller had a 4-yard touchdown run and set the ACC's single-season all-purpose yardage mark, surpassing the 2,059 of Virginia's Thomas Jones in 1999.

COLLEGE PARK -- Clemson football fans' expectations couldn't have been much loftier before last season. The team was ranked ninth nationally and had a senior quarterback, a top receiver and a flashy pair of running backs. But the year didn't unfold as the team had planned. The Tigers were manhandled by Alabama in their opener, then blew an 11-point lead in a 20-17 loss to Maryland in Week 5 before 81,000 dazed fans at Death Valley. Coach Tommy Bowden was replaced by Dabo Swinney at midseason.

COLLEGE PARK - Injuries are exposing freshmen and other inexperienced players to more prominent roles as Maryland heads to Clemson on Saturday for what coach Ralph Friedgen calls "a defining game" in one of the nation's most intimidating stadiums. The untested Terps, many of them on defense, will need to acclimate quickly to Clemson Memorial Stadium (capacity 81,500), a place opposing players either love or fear. Coach Ralph Friedgen is hoping it's the former when such players as Cameron Chism, a freshman defensive back, encounter the stadium popularly known as "Death Valley."

With names like the Dante's View, Badwater and Funeral Mountains, it doesn't exactly sound like a tourist's paradise.But Death Valley, the largest national park in the continental United States, offers more wonders than a sunken Spanish galleon.The 3,000 square miles of desolate terrain in California and Nevada testify to nature's ancient battles. Here gigantic lakes submerged the valleys, volcanic flows oozed across terraces and alluvial fans buried the mountains that had borne them.The people who braved the valley -- the 70-pound pioneer mother who survived the trek with three small children, the Shoshone who unearthed springs in the waterless wastes, and the intrepid prospectors who scratched for gold, silver and borax -- make up the human profile of the place.

The mountainous track went one-way only, straight up 8,500 feet, with no room to turn around or turn off. If we didn't plunge over the edge first, we were going to be ambushed at the top, I just knew it."We're going to die, aren't we?" I wailed. Our underpowered rental car was struggling behind a stranger's pickup as it led us up a steep, dust-clogged path along the brink of California's Inyo Mountains. That's when it struck me that our quixotic way-off-season vacation could end here very badly.

CLEMSON, S.C. -- If there was any doubt about whether the Maryland football team deserves to go to a bowl game, odds are it was swept away yesterday by the Terps' scrawny kicker. Senior Dan Ennis was quickly lost in a swarm of elated teammates after he kicked a 31-yard field goal as time ran out to give the Terps a 13-12 upset of No. 19 Clemson, capping four quarters of some of the best football Maryland has played this season. Miami@Maryland Saturday, time and TV TBA, 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Play it again A summary of Maryland's 13-12 victory over Clemson: What went right -- Maryland's defense held the top offense in the Atlantic Coast Conference to four field goals, and the Terps' passing game was finally productive.
