Ann Geddes doesn't want a "fair and balanced" workout. But the 49-year-old worker for a nonprofit agency is having no luck getting the channel changed in front of her favorite rowing machine at a Columbia gym. The television happens to be tuned permanently to Fox News. Geddes, a liberal Democrat and former legislative aide to a Howard County delegate, said she can't stomach the conservative lineup that appears nightly as she gets her exercise. Even though the sound is off, the words scrolling across the bottom of the screen infuriate her. "It makes my blood pressure go up," she said.

Chris Geddes thinks he's on to something that could save lives - and he isn't modest about promoting it. Geddes, a researcher at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, says he's developed a blood test that takes about 20 seconds to determine whether a patient with heart attack symptoms has actually suffered one. The test currently used takes six to eight hours to determine whether sufficient traces of troponin, a telltale compound produced...

Miguel Perez cast his fishing line into the Chesapeake Bay, one last attempt before he'd be on his way. The Aberdeen man waited until he noticed a slight tug on the line before pulling it slowly out of the water. He had caught what he estimated to be about a 15-pound catfish. "This is the biggest fish I've ever caught," he said taking out his cell phone and shooting a quick picture. The hearty catch was due partly to luck, perhaps, but Perez also credited his location: the new pier at Swan Harbor Farm.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Since she lived in Newport, R.I., about 20 years ago, Elizabeth Chilton had dreamed of having a front yard set off by a picket fence. "So many yards up there had pretty fences around them," she said. "They give such a homey look." Chilton hesitated to fence the front yard of her Lexington home, where she has lived 18 years. Fences are an accepted part of New England landscaping, but they're not as prevalent in Lexington. "I didn't want people to think it was an unneighborly gesture," Chilton said.

"What I think is so interesting about Chestertown is that people live with their history," says Nancy Nunn, curator of the Kent County Historical Society. The society's 22nd annual Candlelight Walking Tour, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, will give visitors to the Eastern Shore town an idea of what it's like to live with the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.The streets will be closed to vehicles, so that visitors will be free to walk the streets of this historic port town. Nine of the 16 buildings on this year's tour date from the 18th century; these include several private homes, the Hynson-Ringgold house, the White Swan Tavern (now a bed-and-breakfast inn)
