The first thing you should know about St. Mary's College of Maryland is this: it's kind of remote. Know how people are always describing a place as being in the middle of nowhere? Well, St. Mary's is 20 miles past nowhere. And then you hang a right. Great school, beautiful campus on the St. Mary's River, sure. But Daniel Boone couldn't find this place. It's as far down Maryland's Western Shore as you can go without falling in the Chesapeake Bay. It's in this unlikely setting that Chris Harney has built a national hoops power.

FIFTY YEARS AGO, the idea to start a fire department in Harney was hatched in the town's general store, where local residents went to visit with neighbors and swap news. "We had a country store here and people would come in and shoot the breeze," said Elwood Strickhouser, 73, a charter member of the department. "We all just decided we needed a fire department, but we didn't have any money." On Sunday, Harney Volunteer Fire Company will celebrate its golden anniversary with an open house.

The money is to be used to purchase a thermal-imaging camera to help firefighters find people in smoke-filled buildings and other low-visibility situations, the announcement said.

HARNEY -- What's a town like this doing without a general store?High in the northwest corner of the county, bumping against Frederick County and Pennsylvania, Harney is just about as far out of the way as Detour.The seclusion means the pay phone booth on Harney Road in the heart of town offers a caller almost as much privacy as his living room.But the sleepy streets leave residents without much to choose from in the way of one-stop shopping.When the Harney General Store closed in April, residents were forced to leave town if they wanted to buy more than the cigarettes and sodas they could get at Ridinger's Store at the corner of Harney and Conover roads.

The improbable Sweet 16 run of St. Mary's in the NCAA Division III men's basketball tournament has been fueled by the meshing of its disparate parts. No one on the team knows the value of that kind of kinship better than freshman swingman Alex Franz of Catonsville and Cardinal Gibbons. When Franz's mother, Denise, succumbed to an asthma attack on Aug. 10, 2005, it started in motion a tragic string of personal losses that left Franz searching for perspective. In the next 17 months, he also lost two coaches, his best friend and another classmate.

You can excuse coach Chris Harney for feeling a little beaten up this season. His St. Mary's College of Maryland men's basketball team reeled with five straight losses at midseason and struggled much of the year with team defense. When the Seahawks lost at York on Feb. 9, they were a middling 11-11 team, seemingly headed nowhere. Six straight wins later, they're bound for Greensboro, N.C., and their first NCAA Division III tournament. Harney knew the team wouldn't quit in February, but he didn't know it was about to throw a knockout punch of its own. "This whole season is like a Rocky movie," Harney said.

Barbara Six loves to cook. But she doesn't just cook for her family, which includes four children and eight grandchildren. For 54 years, the Harney resident has been cooking for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary Post 6918, the Harney Volunteer Fire Company auxiliary, the Harney Lions Club and St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Harney. "I do a lot of baking - pies are at the top of my list," she said. "Apple is my specialty, and egg custard, but any kind." When she's not cooking, she might be found visiting a sick church member or friend in a nursing home, or making sure there are altar flowers for the church every Sunday.

When Spc. Erik Wayne Hayes left for Iraq shortly after Christmas, he told family members he was worried about his younger brother, Bradley, who was severely injured in a car accident two years ago. The 20-year- old is unable to communicate and is confined to a nursing facility in Hagerstown. The Army gave Erik Hayes emergency leave to be with his family at the time of the accident. He returned home as often as he could and spent hours at his brother's bedside. "It hurt him to leave his brother, and it made any communication very hard," said Hayes' mother, Debora Reckley of Thurmont.

The Carroll commissioners voted yesterday to lend the Harney Volunteer Fire Company $400,000 to help the department buy a tanker truck. The company's water tanker is more than 20 years old, said Eugene Curfman, county finance director. The county will sell bonds to raise the money, and the interest rate on the fire company's loan will be the same as the interest rate on the bonds, he said.
