Four Years

Editorial from The Aegis | September 10, 2013
Getting it right 80 percent of the time is pretty impressive, especially when that average is over the span of 26 years. It's especially impressive if that percentage reflects an athletic team's ability to win under a particular coach. In her 26 years of coaching field hockey at Fallston High School, Alice Puckett amassed a winning record of right around 80 percent, a number that's even more impressive when the percentage of losses is at around 15 percent (the rest were ties). She retired from coaching four years ago because she wanted to attend all of her daughter's college field hockey games.

Many Maryland legislators were making happy returns to the General Assembly Wednesday, but nobody -- not even Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller -- could approach the record held by Baltimore County Sen. Norman R. Stone. The Dundalk Democrat marked his 50th opening day in the Asembly, where  the 76-year-old Democrat made his debut in the House of Delegates in January 1963. Four years later, he moved up to the Senate, where he has been a fixture since Lyndon Baines Johnson was president.

A former Dundalk high school teacher who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl he met on the Internet on New Year's Day was sentenced yesterday to four years in prison for a crime a Howard County judge called "every suburban parent's worst nightmare." As a teacher, Charles Levi Maxwell, an admitted sex addict, must have recognized that he was dealing with a minor, said Howard Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney. But instead of calling off their meeting in Ellicott City, Maxwell decided to "proceed ahead and charge ahead," even making plans to meet her again a few days later, Sweeney said.

Like many college freshmen, James Bond expected to graduate from University of Maryland in four years. But then he decided to take on a double major, studying government and journalism. To do it in four years, he would have needed 17 or 18 credits a semester instead of the typical 12 to 15. He worried his grades would suffer, hurting his chances when he applies to law schools. Now he is in his fifth year. And Bond - whose less-frantic schedule gives him time to serve as president of the student body, work at Student Legal Aid and take upper-level Spanish classes, among other activities - doesn't mind at all. "I'm getting so much more out of the college experience," said Bond, 22, of Silver Spring, who is among the growing number of college students nationwide who, out of choice or necessity, are extending their stay on campuses beyond the traditional four years.

They say he fought with his hands tied four years ago. The newspaper polls showed him running far ahead of Du Burns, but private polls showed him in trouble with elderly black voters who wanted reassurance.

The Washington Redskins signed wide receiver Tim McGee yesterday, but could be on the verge of losing defensive lineman Reggie White.After White, with the strong urging of his wife, Sara, virtually had decided to go to Washington, the talks between Redskins general manager Charley Casserly and White's agent, Jimmy Sexton, hit a major snag yesterday.Neither Casserly nor Sexton would comment, but a source close to White said, "It's Washington's game to lose and they may be losing it."The problem is something of a misunderstanding between the two sides.
