Just blocks from the spot where Rose Mayr and Elizabeth Nass were killed during a train derailment last summer, about 600 people honored their memory by running a two-mile race through historic Ellicott City Saturday morning. Mayr and Nass, 19-year-old friends who grew up in Ellicott City and graduated from Mount Hebron High School, were sitting on a bridge late on the night of Aug. 20 last year when a CSX train derailed, burying them in coal and killing them. "It shook the community to its roots," recalled Jim Bothe, a friend of the Nass family who emceed Saturday's 2 Miles for 2 Hearts Memorial Run. Not only did the community grieve two young lives lost, but the cleanup and investigation closed down Main Street for nearly a week.

The men who play baseball and soccer at Towson University, run track at the University of Delaware and wrestle, swim or golf at any number of other colleges all heard the same reason when their teams were cut: Title IX. To meet the federal law's goal of providing equal opportunities for athletes of both genders, schools have eliminated men's teams to keep their overall rosters in line with the number of women playing sports. But a growing chorus is crying foul. "People are really upset that they're dragging Title IX through the mud to cut sports teams," said Towson University graduate Scott Hargest.
