On a rainy night in November 1970, an airplane crash took the lives of 75 people, including nearly every member of Marshall University's Thundering Herd football team. One year later, with a team composed almost exclusively of freshmen, the squad - renamed the Young Thundering Herd - pulled off one of the great victories in collegiate sports history. We Are Marshall is the story of that tragedy, that team and that victory. It's a story of grief, of moving past loss, of honoring the departed by not neglecting those who remain.

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. -- Coast Guard Seaman Apprentice Robert Bonham held the flare aloft, pulling out the string. Thick orange smoke spiraled high above the water, signaling the cowboys waiting on nearby Assateague Island to begin the 69th annual pony swim to Chincoteague.As the smoke dispersed into a faint pink haze, more than 100 ponies came into view on Assateague. At first barely discernible through the early morning mist, they ran in a straight line toward the channel, hesitating only slightly when they splashed into the water just after 8 a.m. yesterday.

HUNTERS ARE now thinning deer herds in the 1,018-acre Middle Patuxent Environmental Area in Howard County.

On the first three days this week, 50 were killed. Even organizers were surprised by the tally, an indication of the high degree of overpopulation.

To cull a burgeoning deer herd that is rapidly destroying vegetation and stripping trees, the Baltimore County Council is expected tomorrow to approve a program to allow firearms hunting for the first time in Loch Raven Reservoir. "We absolutely have to do something," said Harry Spiker, game mammal leader with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. "All you have to do is look at the landscape." The use of sharpshooters with rifles in February would follow a 4 1/2 -month season of bow hunting, also a first-time event, in a 1,600-acre northern area of the Loch Raven watershed.
