A Southern Maryland legislator urged state lawmakers Tuesday to help homeowners on the eroding Calvert County cliffs overlooking Chesapeake Bay contend with an endangered beetle there that is hampering their efforts to save their homes from erosion of the bluffs. "We haven't lost any homes yet but ... it's just a matter of time," said Democratic Sen. Roy P. Dyson. The Senate Education Health and Environmental Affairs Committee heard two bills he had introduced. One would require the state under certain circumstances to let property owners destroy some Puritan tiger beetles living in the cliffs if need be to try to shore up their homes.

In discussing Steve McNair yesterday, cornerback Samari Rolle referred to the retiring quarterback as Hall of Fame timber. Certainly McNair's legacy as the consummate NFL "warrior" - to use the well-worn vernacular of the locker room - is without question. His hallmark is that he played with admirable efficiency while suffering injury after injury, with damaged body parts taped and numbed, and did it with perseverance and courage through 13 seasons. However, getting into Canton will be an uphill battle for him. The list of latter-day quarterbacks who have been elected to the Hall of Fame who have not led a team to a Super Bowl title or NFL or AFL championship is short.
