Louis Robert Heiss, a chemist and research instruments inventor who secured six patents and continued to tinker with ideas long after he retired, died of a heart attack July 9 at Anne Arundel Medical Center. He was 82."I met him in the eighth grade, and even then he was a typical scientist," said his wife of 56 years, Martha Furr Heiss. "He was always very quiet and studious. Years later, he'd always say that he loved me from the moment he laid eyes on me."The couple grew up around the corner from each other in Washington, and attended the same schools until Mr. Heiss entered American University to study chemistry and biology.

PHILADELPHIA -- A record-setting 52-yard field goal by Army's Kurt Heiss was probably the final kick in the gut for Navy football coach George Chaump.For the third straight year, the Army-Navy football game was decided by a kick. And the Cadets made it three in a row on a balmy fall afternoon at Veterans Stadium when Heiss, a senior from San Antonio, kicked his field goal with room to spare with 6:19 left to win it, 22-20.At least this time, it did not come down to the agonizing final seconds as in the previous two meetings.

COLLEGE PARK -- Tara Heiss played at Cole Field House when Maryland women's basketball crowds were limited almost exclusively to about 100 friends and relatives of team members.So, last night, as she sat courtside preparing to broadcast the Maryland-Virginia women's game, the size of the crowd struck her as amazing."No, I never thought I'd see this," said Heiss, referring to the first sellout in the 17 years that Chris Weller has been Terrapins coach.For a change during a Maryland women's game, Cole Field House hadn't become a quick stopping point on the way to an off-campus watering hole, and Heiss, Maryland's first All-American, was more than impressed.
