The state Board of Public Works is forging another fishing legacy for Lefty Kreh: a seven-mile trail in Gunpowder Falls State Park to be named for the former outdoors editor of The Sun. The trail's moniker will become official at the board's meeting Dec. 21 in Annapolis. Kreh, 86, is expected to attend. The Cockeysville resident, who has authored more than 30 books on fishing, appeared humbled by the honor. "I appreciate [the state] doing this, but it kind of embarrasses me," said Kreh, who grew up in Frederick and spent 18 years writing for The Sun until his retirement in 1990.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Journalist Steven Vincent collected facts for his stories from the streets of Basra, not from official statements. But he knew that the streets of Iraq's second-largest city were becoming increasingly unsafe for him. "This is not the easygoing municipality of 1.5 million people I recall," he wrote in a June 9 article for the National Review Online. "For one thing, I can no longer wander the streets, take a cab, or dine in restaurants for fear of being spotted as a foreigner: Kidnapping, by criminal gangs or terrorists, remains a lucrative business."

But those concerns should be alleviated today. The city and two Baltimore companies are scheduled to announce that the South Conkling Street station will be the first project for a new public-private program aimed at rehabilitating the city's aging firehouses. Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse and Obrecht Commercial Real Estate will pay for renovation work at the firehouse at 520 S. Conkling St. - one of Baltimore's oldest.

Shawn Kimbro catches Chesapeake Bay striped bass Tennessee style. That is to say this son of the Volunteer State thinks of stripers as oversized largemouth bass with black racing stripes. There's a lot of running and gunning. And a lot of twitching and jigging. See the birds. Make a beeline for the birds. Fine-tune location with an eye on the fish finder. Drop lines. Crack the whip. Repeat as needed. It's not for the laid back. Or the introspective. But it is too much fun. And, most importantly, it works.
