The O'Beirnes are no different, but the couple's approach to settling in Butchers Hill involved a bit of trial and error. "When all of our children moved away from home, we decided to try city living," said Andrew "Drew" O'Beirne, 69, a retired president of a biotech startup company.

The state's highest court ruled yesterday that judges may block grandparents from seeing their grandchildren if it is in the best interests of the children -- no matter what the children's family background.In the first case of its kind involving a two-parent family, the Court of Appeals ruled that a 1993 statute did not give a Salisbury couple an automatic right to see their grandchildren, ages 10 and 7. The court held that the law gives trial judges wide discretion in such matters and that Wicomico County Circuit Judge Alfred T. Truitt Jr. did not place an undue burden on Arnold and Barbara Maner when he denied them visitation.

At 68, Roy Hilton still enjoys fooling people. "They come up to me and think I'm an old basketball player. I like that," said Hilton, who, at 6-foot-6, was one of the tallest Baltimore Colts of his day. He fooled people in other ways, back then. The Colts' 15th round draft pick in 1965, Hilton surprised everyone by making the team at defensive end and lasting 11 years in the NFL. And in Baltimore's 16-13 victory in Super Bowl V, he surprised Dallas by roaring past its All-Pro tackle, Ralph Neely, and sacking Cowboys' quarterback Craig Morton twice before halftime.

WASHINGTON -- The spreading campaign to gain new legal rights for grandparents -- especially, guaranteed access to their grandchildren -- appeared yesterday to be on the verge of a major setback in the Supreme Court. The justices, hearing their first case concerning the creation of visitation rights for grandparents, reacted with skepticism -- and sometimes disdain -- to the idea that courts could compel parents to share their children with others. Strong curbs signaled The court did not appear poised to bar states from giving grandparents any right to visit with their grandchildren, as 48 states have done, but it gave strong hints that it would curb significantly any guarantee of such visits, especially when parents object.

My nephew posted a video on Facebook of his brand-new daughter hiccupping, and it was so cute I about died. I immediately grabbed the video and posted it on my Facebook profile for all 600 of my friends to see, and I e-mailed copies to other friends who don't hang out on Facebook. Then I opened a new folder on my PC and named it "Quinn" after my new great-niece and filed a copy of the video there. I copied some of the pictures my nephew had posted of his daughter to the folder, and shipped the whole business to other friends.
