NASA announced plans Tuesday for a mission to explore the interior of Mars, passing over two finalist proposals from Maryland institutions for the space agency's next relatively low-cost space mission. InSight, a project of the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab in California, is set to launch in 2016 with the goal of examining Mars' core and crust to help scientists understand how planets form and evolve. NASA selected the mission instead of a proposal by the University of Maryland, College Park to study a comet and another from a Laytonsville company to explore Saturn's largest moon.

A man has to have style," says Gus McLeod, explaining his choice of clothes. He's decked out in black loafers, dress slacks and dress shirt, a brown bomber jacket and one of those dashing, Indiana Jones-ish, snap-brim fedoras. Yes, sir, Gus is stylin'. Gus is duded up for a round of golf, possibly a tough day of shopping at the mall. Only catch is McLeod isn't going golfing ... or shopping. Rather, this is how he intends to dress when he embarks on a record-breaking flight around the world next week.

Seven miles north of Gaithersburg, on the cusp of urban sprawl, lies the tranquil town of Laytonsville, a low-tech reminder of Montgomery County's verdant past.Here, just beyond the business parks, twin arches and fitness centers pushing toward them, live townsfolk addicted to simple pleasures: well water, pig roasts and 4-H.Here, people reside in ancestral Victorian homes. They measure time by catastrophic events -- everything happened before or after George Mobley's barn burned down. And they rent P.O. boxes so they can mosey in and chat with Ethel Clemons, the postmistress.

LAYTONSVILLE -- It took Wayne DeFrancesco, teaching professional at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, four extra holes, but he outlasted Eric Cobb for the final berth during yesterday's Middle Atlantic PGA member qualifying for next week's Kemper Open.DeFrancesco, headed for his seventh Kemper since beginning his run in 1983, made it with four straight playoff pars at Montgomery Country Club, although his heart skipped a beat when Cobb's 30-foot birdie bid at the 152-yard third hole dipped into the cup and spun away.
