Jim McMartin and Jim Beggins make their living creating beautiful pieces of furniture from the wood Mother Nature leaves behind, and she was particularly careless with her trees this fall. Hurricane Irene rolled through the woods on Maryland's Eastern Shore like a giant bowling ball in August, and now the enormous kindling that she left - tree trunks as thick as a man is tall - lies in the grass behind their lumber yard near Easton, waiting for the hand-tooled magic that will turn the wood into heirloom pieces of furniture.

In the latest detour in Annapolis' contentious trek toward building a parking garage and mixed-use complex on West Street, the city council rejected late Monday a resolution that many say would have undone months of progress. The dust still had not settled yesterday from the angry debate that preceded the vote. The resolution, introduced by Alderman Samuel Gilmer, a Ward 3 Democrat, and Republican Mayor Dean L. Johnson, would have prohibited the sale "under any circumstances" of any portion of the Cecil Knighton Property at West Street and Colonial Avenue, which the city bought for $1.1 million for a parking garage in June last year.

Knight an excellent coach but falls short as human being While I'll readily admit that Bob Knight was an excellent college basketball coach, he was a surly, bitter and often repugnant human being. Any university who hired him as a coach knew it would have to unfortunately deal with the whole package. Just be ready to cringe when Knight became unhinged. He could easily be goaded into explosive acts of inexplicable tantrums. Role model? Hardly. A hard-nosed no nonsense coach, sure, but he had an immature, churlish persona to trump his coaching abilities.
