The race for state Senate in the Republican stronghold of District 33 is in many ways a race for the right. One-term Sen. Janet Greenip said her record of fighting for an amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and woman, sponsoring anti-abortion legislation and raising the limit on the estate tax makes her the ideal representative for the district that includes Severna Park, Crownsville, Crofton, parts of Odenton and most of South County....

Ravens receiver Randy Hymes says that after a few warm-up tosses, he can throw a football 80 yards. Not even strong-armed starting quarterback Jeff Blake can send a spiral that distance. "Yeah, I'm a young buck, and he's old. Probably in his younger days, he could sling it 85 yards," Hymes said. "But I can still get it out there. It's still in me." Outside of a trick play in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens will need Hymes just to catch and run in what will probably be the second start of his rookie season.

It may be time for the Ravens to bag the tricks. Randy Hymes' attempted toss to quarterback Kordell Stewart was the fourth failed trick play of the season, though this one came closest to working. Stewart, who replaced an injured Anthony Wright in the third quarter of yesterday's 21-9 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, led a drive to the 26-yard line, at which point his team decided to reach deep into the playbook. From the shotgun formation, Stewart handed the ball to receiver Hymes, then sneaked out on the back side of the play for a pass.

By default, the Ravens are turning to a player who just won't go away. Receiver Randy Hymes figures to have another opportunity when the Ravens play the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Hymes might replace Mark Clayton, who suffered an ankle injury against the Cleveland Browns and missed most of that game. Hymes caught just one pass in more than 50 snaps in place of Clayton against Cleveland, but the reception went for 19 yards and converted a third down. As has been the case during Hymes' four seasons, he made the most of limited chances.

After winning four consecutive terms as Howard County's state's attorney, William R. Hymes will forgo a fifth race in 1994.This summer, the county's top prosecutor said he was unsure about whether to run for another four-year term, citing unfinished business such as the computerization of his office. But he has now decided to retire."I'll be 68 when this term ends," said Mr. Hymes, a Democrat. "I firmly believe there comes a time when the senior citizens should make way for a new generation."

Howard County's top prosecutor says he made the right decision when he rejected a defense plea offer that Eric Joseph Tirado accept a sentence of life in prison without parole in exchange for the prosecution's agreement to end its quest for a death penalty."

Shortly after the Ravens finished a recent practice, with his squad a little too peppy over what happened on the football field, receivers coach David Shaw stepped away from his normally positive and supportive personality to become the team killjoy. Rather than slap high-fives and give pats on the back to his receivers, Shaw felt the need to bring the group together for a little tough love. Yes, the three touchdowns combined with a couple of other long gains during practice against a secondary that features four former Pro Bowl players was good, but perspective was needed.

As the Ravens' passing camp opened yesterday, Randy Hymes looked like he was having an identity crisis. A starting receiver at the end of last season, Hymes was throwing tight spirals in one drill before running a few routes of his own. But Hymes, who is still making the transition from college quarterback to NFL receiver, has no grand designs on playing a dual role outside of practice. Instead of becoming the next "Slash" - the nickname given to multidimensional threat Kordell Stewart - Hymes is focused on making the cut as a starting receiver.

Ravens offensive players and coaches often don't look back with fondness at games against the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense. Witness coach Brian Billick's warning to his receivers, two of whom are rookies who will likely see action when the Ravens play host to the Steelers and their punishing defense Sunday. "Grow up quick," Billick said. "You are past the learning curve, baby. Against Pittsburgh, you will grow up quick, and if you don't, you may die." The last time Randy Hymes flourished was when he faced the Steelers in a season-ending loss in 2002.

Camp update A good sign: After a horrendous Tuesday practice, the offense looked decent. In years past, that never happened because the defense always pushed the offense around. Maybe there is a new attitude on offense. Also, have you ever noticed that quarterback Kyle Boller throws better when he is mad because he is not concerned with mechanics and rifles the ball? Bank on it: First fight of training camp involved no other than right offensive tackle Orlando Brown. He got into a brief exchange with linebacker Bart Scott before they were separated.

Randy Hymes has heard the comparisons and he pays them no mind. The tights, the one-handed catches, the jawing with cornerbacks, and the end zone celebrations - all staples of Hymes' play during the Ravens' offseason practices - have led a few teammates to jokingly evoke a name he wants no ties to. But the question, considering Hymes' extreme makeover, is fair. Could he be turning into a less controversial version of Terrell Owens? "I don't want to be like T.O.," Hymes said. "I'm far different from him. He's in a whole other category.

When Ravens receiver Randy Hymes reflects on his season, which is likely to end tomorrow against the Miami Dolphins at M&T Bank Stadium, he does so with a gleam. Hymes likes to look at the good (a successful return from reconstructive knee surgery with 304 receiving yards, third on the team) rather than the bad (a steady decrease in playing time that climaxed with a two-game stint as an inactive player before he got a chance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday). "You're going to have your ups and downs," Hymes said.

Dwight Stanley Thompson, a former deputy state's attorney in Howard County and retired Army lieutenant colonel, died of heart failure Tuesday at his Columbia home. He was 76. Mr. Thompson had been a Howard County prosecutor for several years when William R. Hymes came into office as state's attorney in January 1979. "I looked over the staff and all the other attorneys and he seemed to be the best choice for deputy," Mr. Hymes recalled. "I couldn't have made a better choice. Anything good that you can think of to say about a person in that particular capacity would apply to Dwight."

About a month ago, Randy Hymes sat in a room full of Ravens fans and smiled sheepishly after receiving one of the night's most heartfelt ovations. It was at a Ravens Roost banquet in Hagerstown, where an announcer recognized Hymes as a special guest and dismissed the idea that the team does not have a quality receiver, proclaiming him a possible answer to a struggling passing game. Hundreds of guests seconded that motion. "When people see potential, they want potential out on the field," said Hymes, who is participating in his first practices since August this week after a knee injury cost him the entire 2003 season.

The 2003 preseason was not kind to Javin Hunter, Randy Hymes, or Trent Smith. Each entered training camp hoping to find a role in the Ravens' developing passing game. By the end of the August, all three had suffered season-ending leg injuries. Hunter, a wide receiver, tore his achilles tendon during a morning practice. Smith, a tight end, broke his left tibia in the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills. Hymes, a wideout who started two games during 2002, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the final exhibition game against the New York Giants.

Randy Hymes has more catches than any other Ravens wide-out this season, has the most receiving yards on the team and has its only touchdown through the air. The only target that has eluded his grasp is a permanent starting job. Hymes has started the past two games for the injured Travis Taylor and has capitalized on the opportunity to develop into the Ravens' most consistent downfield option, pulling in 12 catches for 124 yards. His 38-yard touchdown catch in Sunday's 23-9 win over Cincinnati is the Ravens' only score in 74 pass attempts.
