State officials are about to go after the last of the mute swans - beautiful to some, a menace to others - living in Maryland. In what many believe will be the final word in a long fight, Secretary of Natural Resources John Griffin on Monday accepted the report of a task force on the swans, saying that his staff is "unfortunately compelled" to continue population control efforts on the fewer than 500 birds still living on the Chesapeake Bay and its...

The man charged with ambushing and shooting Baltimore police Officer Willie D. Grandy last year went on trial yesterday, facing his second jury for the same crime. A jury deadlocked five months ago, unable to unanimously decide whether Donnell A. Ward shot the officer and a teen-ager he was arresting in an East Baltimore public housing complex. Lawyers decided to retry the case, which ended in a 10-2 deadlock in April. After the last trial, 10 members of the jury thought Ward was innocent of 21 counts, including three of attempted first-degree murder.

Grandy was the last witness to testify in Ward's four-day trial, in which he is charged with more than a dozen crimes, including trying to kill Grandy, his partner Michael Coleman and the...

The man charged with ambushing and shooting Baltimore police Officer Willie D. Grandy last year went on trial yesterday, with prosecutors portraying him as a violent cog in the city's drug machine and the defense saying police "got the wrong guy." According to prosecutors' opening statement, defendant Donnell A. Ward, 27, was trying to prevent a teen-age drug dealer from getting robbed when he shot Grandy once in the left thigh on an East Baltimore street March 26, 2001. But defense attorney Brian G. Thompson said his client is the victim of a police scramble to catch the person who shot an officer.

A month ago, Roosevelt Grandy had trouble getting to his home as police officers blocked off his West Baltimore neighborhood seeking clues to the afternoon killing of a 21-year-old man gunned down in the street. Yesterday afternoon, Grandy, 77, watched with appreciation from his steps as police returned to the community - one of Baltimore's most violent this year - to set up a different kind of operation, called the Community Safe Zone Project. Using metal barricades and traffic cones, police shut down a five-square-block area in Mondawmin to traffic and flooded the neighborhood with officers.

This Labor Day, an Elkridge man is launching a campaign to honor an overlooked class of workers: slaves. Eric A. Sheppard's newfound knowledge about a possible ancestor -- the subject of a 19th-century slave narrative -- has led him and his family on a mission to commemorate the contributions of enslaved people to the United States. "The ancestors are calling their descendants to tell their story," said Sheppard, a defense consultant born and raised in Baltimore. "If our ancestors slaved to build this country, we need people to tell about it."

Morgan State almost couldn't stand prosperity yesterday, but the Bears persevered against several Bethune-Cookman rallies and scored a 59-55 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory at Hill Field House. Buoyed by the return of leading scorer Randy Dukes and Douglas Sims from suspensions, the Bears shot ahead 24-6 at the outset with Dukes and Sam Brand combining for five three-pointers. But, by halftime, Bethune-Cookman (7-19, 5-11) was tied after Morgan struggled in an 11-minute stretch in which it scored one field goal.

Three months ago, Roosevelt Grandy paid $390 a month for a three-bedroom, one-bath rowhouse on Carey Street. Now Grandy, 44, owns a renovated three-bedroom, 1 1/2 -bath townhouse on North Calhoun Street, and his mortgage is $60 less than his rent. Grandy, who grew up in West Baltimore, is among scores of residents who are realizing homeownership through programs that provide low-interest loans, require nominal down payments and keep people in the city. He lives in Sandtown-Winchester Square, a $30 million redevelopment project that when complete will include 322 rehabilitated townhouses in one of Baltimore's most depressed areas.

A woman testifying yesterday in the trial of a man accused of shooting a Baltimore police officer and a teen-ager last year appeared to contradict the statements of an earlier witness who said he saw Donnell A. Ward shoot the two. On Monday, Martin Spriggs testified that he saw the shootings of police Officer Willie D. Grandy and the teen-ager from a window of a house in the 700 block of Wharton Court, a few feet from the incident. But Brenda Johnson, who lives in the same house testified that the window that faced the shooting scene was closed that afternoon, and that it "would not be true" if Spriggs testified that the window was open and allowed him a clear view of the shooting.

Maybe Morgan State's men should be snowed out more often. In the rare circumstance of playing on a weekday afternoon, the Bears remained unbeaten in postponed games yesterday, holding on for a 63-60 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory over Norfolk State at Hill Field House. "When we get games rescheduled, we're 2-0," said Morgan guard Stan Grandy, who was forced into extensive duty at the point after a slew of injuries and foul trouble decimated the team's depth. "We should try it again."
