HOUSTON -- Former Enron Corp. Treasurer Ben F. Glisan Jr., under questioning by a defense lawyer, hedged his earlier testimony that one-time chief executive Jeffrey K. Skilling approved a scheme to dodge accounting rules. Glisan, 40, told jurors at Skilling's fraud trial Wednesday that the former CEO endorsed use of off-the-books partnerships to "circumvent the accounting rules." But under cross-examination yesterday by Skilling lawyer Daniel M. Petrocelli, Glisan said he couldn't recall Skilling's exact words.

The rolling farmlands of Frederick County billow in waves of green and gold, like clothes fluttering on a backyard line. Just 40 minutes from the urgencies of Baltimore and Washington, as you travel through this countryside increasingly given to subdivisions, you find your way back to a time based on seasons and a way of life shaped by the land.There, Glisan Farms stands out. Comprised of five adjoining dairy farms and close to 1,000 acres, Glisan Farms continues a family business more than 200 years old. It is heritage suddenly exposed, a fertile green remnant of the past, a reminder of the rural path Maryland took to the 20th century.

Her head, topped by a black shower cap, bobs from side to side beneath the glare of a huge overhead spotlight in an otherwise darkened gym. Her intense eyes focus on a male wrestling opponent.Dena Glisan, of Oakland Mills, stalks the 125-pound opponent cautiously, taking short, choppy steps and balancing on the balls of her feet. Then the two wrestlers quickly advance and lock arms in a test of strength.Soon Glisan, despite shouts of encouragement from fans, finds herself flat on the mat, struggling, as Jeff Carter of Long Reach, hoping to pin her, tries to turn her off her stomach.

Oakland Mills 130-pounder Dena Glisan is believed to have become the first Maryland girl to score a pin over a varsity opponent when she beat Great Mills' Justin Spedden in 5 minutes, 55 seconds during last weekend's Chopticon Tournament.Glisan, 17, won two of her four bouts, also posting a 6-1 decision over Patuxent's Bryce Beckner. The pin came nearly a year after she became the state's first female wrestler to score a technical fall over a varsity rival."It didn't really hit me until my dad pointed out later on that it was my first varsity pin," said Glisan, who won the 121-pound class at the U.S. High School Girls Wrestling Association national championships in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Gary Glisan -- a former member of the Columbia Association's governing body now trying to unseat longtime CA gadfly Alex Hekimian -- was quietly hired by the association three months ago to study its computer system.Glisan, a computer consultant, has received $512 for 11 hours of work. He based the charges on 11 months' worth of a family membership in CA's recreation facilities.If he defeats Hekimian in the April 19 race for a seat on the CA board representing Oakland Mills village, Glisan would help oversee the organization that paid him.And Hekimian is calling that a conflict of interest.

To its detractors, the Alliance for Better Columbia (ABC) is a small group of loudmouths so bent on criticizing Columbia it has lost all credibility.To its supporters, the group is Columbia's antidote to apathy -- reasoned residents willing to challenge the paternalistic management of the nation's largest planned community.Somewhere in between sits ABC -- a dozen active members pushing for serious public debate in a well-off community where high-level discourse often focuses on such seemingly trivial matters as whether to use a dog to police local geese; and where so few residents vote in community elections that they must be lured with free hot dogs and raffle prizes.
