KENNEDYVILLE -- Farmers are a curious breed. They're always keeping an eye on their neighbor's fields and his farming practices. But this year, farmers around this rural Kent County community are paying more attention then ever to Gary Miller's corn crop.Gary Miller and his three brothers run 3-M's Farm, a grain-growing operation that spreads over 3,000 acres of some of the flattest land in all of Maryland. But it's just a small patch of their farm -- a 400-acre cornfield that butts up against Turner's Creek -- that captured the attention of farmers throughout the county and around much of the rest of the state this year.

KENNEDYVILLE -- "San Francisco is tough; it's hard to think they won't do it again," said the big guy at the other end of the goose blind.His credentials were enough to convince me -- and this day he also convinced me of his shooting prowess. He gets a lot of practice. His hunting itinerary is awesome.Since the pro football season started, he has shot waterfowl in Ontario, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Montana and Illinois, pheasants in Iowa, not to mention a trip to Poland for wild boar. Also, he has scored a Grand Slam in sheep: a desert in Mexico, dall in Alaska, big horn and stone in British Columbia.
