Richard John Fisher, owner of a dry-cleaning business for 40 years, died of cancer Monday at his Millersville home. He was 60. Mr. Fisher operated Sparkle Cleaners, picking up and delivering dry cleaning to customers throughout Anne Arundel County and in neighboring communities. "He was truly an independent contractor who literally didn't stop working until a few weeks before he died," said his wife of seven years, Mary Ann Fisher. "He was known all over the county." A Mass of Christian burial was offered Friday at Our Lady of the Fields Roman Catholic Church in Millersville.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Defensive end Jarrell Chandler broke through St. John Fisher's offensive line to sack quarterback Tim Bailey on fourth down and seal a 58-52 victory yesterday in Rochester, N.Y., for No. 20 Salisbury, which defeated the No. 25 Cardinals in four overtimes. The Salisbury players spilled onto the field and celebrated a huge nonconference win for the Sea Gulls (5-1) before an announced 740 at Growney Stadium. The victory kept alive Salisbury's playoff hopes, which looked bleak late in the fourth quarter.

Upset victories can be the turning point in a team's season, and Salisbury may have found its defining moment of the 2014 campaign in Saturday's 37-34 overtime stunner against then-No. 6 St. John Fisher. But coach Sherman Wood wants to make sure that the Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) don't let the win go to their heads. “What we have to be careful about here is overconfidence,” Wood said Wednesday morning. “We had a great win against Christopher Newport at their place at night in front of a packed house [in the season opener on Sept.

Last Monday, we congratulated Westminster for its exceptional pedestrian safety record. It got an award from the Automobile Association of America for the fact that not one pedestrian had been killed Westminster in 12 years. We failed to note, however, that on Nov. 4 this streak ended. John Fisher, 41, died that evening while crossing Route 140. We hope his unfortunate death marks the start of another safe streak.

CORRECTING A CORRECTION: Did you ever have one of those days? In an editorial Nov. 29, we congratulated Westminster on its award for maintaining a 12-year streak without a pedestrian fatality. Afterward, it was brought to our attention that John Fisher was killed Nov. 4 while crossing Route 140. We published a correction Dec. 2, saying the streak had ended. Now we learn from the city police, that Mr. Fisher was struck 75 feet outside the city line. We are sorry for Mr. Fisher's tragic death, while we hope Westminster can sustain a remarkable streak that's still going.

A handful of Anne Arundel County liquor stores are taking advantage of new liquor laws in hopes of cashing in on beer drinkers' interest in craft brews. They've installed taps in their stores to dispense specialty beers into refillable glass jugs called growlers — a practice that was legalized in the county at the beginning of July. John Fisher, owner of Staples Corner Liquors in Gambrills, drove to Annapolis earlier this year to testify before state lawmakers in favor of the law allowing growlers in the city and county.

The Rams, fresh off a win over in-state rival Brown, are also winless in the conference. This could be a high-scoring game as both teams look to throw the ball early and often. Towson QB Sean Schaefer is averaging 246 passing yards; his counterpart, Rhode Island's Derek Cassidy, threw for 298 yards and five touchdowns last week.

Too distracted by a desire to follow his father and brother into military service during World War II, John "Joe" Fisher admits he often skipped school as a teenager and wasn't much interested when he did attend class. In 1945, Fisher was 16 and had completed the seventh grade at what is now Randallstown High when his mother, Evelyn, agreed to sign papers that would allow him to enlist in the U.S. Navy -- a year before he would be old enough to enlist on his own. "I wouldn't stay in school," he said last week while he leafed through a manila folder filled with military memories, including photos showing him with a dozen fellow recruits in an engineer school battalion.
