HANCOCK -- Walking along Sideling Hill Creek, Laurie MacIvor spots a tiny black slit on the brown silty bottom of the sparkling mountain stream.Most people wouldn't have seen it at all. But to MacIvor, a biologist with Maryland's Natural Heritage program, the dime-sized slit looked like the open mouth of a freshwater mussel buried in the mud.It turned out to be more than just another mussel. It was Lasmigona subviridis, also known as a "green floater." The inch-long bivalve is listed as endangered in Maryland, and it is rare enough nationwide to be nominated for federal protection.

Isaac Bennett Hancock spent years on the streets, dividing his time between two East Baltimore homeless shelters, a bottle of Scotch in one pocket and paperback books about the Wild West in the other.It was a way of life the 53-year-old man chose and, his friends say, he could take care of himself. When the weather got too cold to stay outside, when icy winds blew down the alleys and park benches became frigid slabs, Ike Hancock always knew enough to get himself to a shelter.But on Wednesday night as temperatures dipped into the low 20s, Mr. Hancock -- perhaps none the better from a day of heavy drinking -- chose to rest for the night in a lot in the rear of the 1200 block of East Fayette Street.

Riding with the Blue Moth Bill Hancock Sports Publishing LLC/246 pages Full disclosure: I have known and liked Bill Hancock since 1995, when first- and second-round games of the NCAA basketball tournament were played at what is now 1st Mariner Arena. Hancock was then in the midst of a 12-year run as operations director of the NCAA tournament, and said that my hometown would be an ideal Final Four site, if only it had a domed stadium. The NCAA tournament that begins tonight bears the stamp of Hancock, who standardized the experience.
