“PBS NewsHour,” once one of the nation's most influential broadcasts, is on the brink of marginalization - if not extinction. And for those of us who believe TV needs at least one noncommercial, nightly, national newscast in these increasingly corporate times, that's a cause for concern. The “NewsHour” has lost 48 percent of its audience in the past eight years, going from an average audience of 2.5 million viewers a night in 2005 to 1.3 million in fiscal year 2013 (PBS shows are measured in fiscal years)

THE MACNEIL/LEHRER REPORT" is sending itself a valentine this week on PBS in the form of a special celebrating its 15th anniversary which airs tomorrow night at 7 o'clock on Maryland Public Television, Channels 22 and 67.There's something a little smarmy about this program. Imagine if CBS did "Dan Rather: A Decade at the Anchor Desk" or ABC did "The Peter Jennings Years." We would be justifiably disgusted at this blatant self-promotion.But, it's membership drive time, PBS' equivalent of a sweep month, so "15 Years of MacNeil/Lehrer" is not really intended to be an insightful examination of this program, but rather a compendium of moments designed to make its regular viewers feel the appropriate combination of guilty and grateful that will make them phone in their contribution.

Host Mount St. Mary's scored a pair of late goals to stun No. 18 Bucknell, 12-11, in men's lacrosse Sunday. Andrew Scalley (Archbishop Spalding) tied the game with 1:35 left, and Cody Lehrer (Dulaney) scored the game-winner 15 seconds later to propel the host Mountaineers (1-1) to their fifth all-time win over a ranked opponent. Bryant Schmidt (St. Mary's Ryken) gave the Mount the chance to tie when he caused a turnover near midfield. The Bison (1-1) had a pair of chances in the final seconds to even the score but missed the cage on both shots.

On rain-dappled Duck Creek, the old sidewheeler bay boat Lang Syne rests at an Essex Yacht Club dock like a phantom from the age when bay liners scurried back and forth on the Chesapeake like water bugs on a pond. Lang Syne is a compact version of such storied steamboats as the Anne Arundel, the City of Norfolk, the Calvert, the Dorchester, the Potomac and the Emma Giles. It's a reminder of an era that ended in 1963 when the City of Richmond docked for the last time at Pratt Street. The hard-used Lang Syne was derelict about five years ago when the Lehrer family of Essex spotted it tied to a tree on the Susquehanna River at Havre de Grace.

At one point, it probably happened to people in your family. They picked up everything, or the little they had left, and came to America, a nation that has thrived on the arrival of new cultures that gradually mixed with the existing society. After three years of absorbing the ups and downs of life for immigrants living in the borough of Queens, New York, Judith Sloan and Warren Lehrer created Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new America, an art exhibit, book and CD of their stories.

Opposing defenses are beginning to catch on to Cody Lehrer, and for good reason. The sophomore attackman for Mount St. Mary's has scored 44 goals this season, fourth-most among DivisionI players. That kind of production has inspired a few opponents to try to prevent Lehrer from even touching the ball. "I've faced shutoffs in a good number of games this season," Lehrer said. "It can be frustrating at times, but at the same time, I view it as a compliment. They have a respect for me and see me as a threat.

After 14 years of going solo at the PBS anchor desk, Jim Lehrer is expected to announce Tuesday at a programming conference in Baltimore that The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer will return to a co-anchor format in the fall. Lehrer, who will turn 75 next week, will be joined at the anchor desk by a rotating cast of correspondents, including Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff and Jeffrey Brown. Lehrer, who had a heart bypass operation in 1983, underwent a heart valve procedure last year that left him away from the show for several months.

The No. 10 Dulaney boys lacrosse team has enough offensive firepower to hang with anyone. Senior midfielders Eric Keppler, Cody Lehrer and Jay Mann pace an offense capable of shooting opponents out of games. So how exactly do you stop the Lions? "Don't give them the ball," Urbana coach Joe Conner said. "You have to have long possessions on offense. If we don't get a goal, we still get three minutes off the clock, and the longer they don't touch it, the better our chances." Yesterday afternoon, Urbana of Frederick County controlled possession and was able to hold off a late rally by the Lions, winning, 8-7, in Timonium.

Richard H. Levine, a former reporter for The Sun whose 1964 series on police ineptitude led to the firing of the city police commissioner and reorganization of the department, died Tuesday of an apparent heart attack at his home in Washington. He was 69."He liked digging for facts and hearing about people's lives," said his daughter Jody Levine Lehrer, an environmental attorney from Weymouth, Mass. "He had a real ability to bring out sides of people they weren't comfortable telling others."

All the talk these days about how the era of the anchorman has ended amuses Jim Lehrer. With good reason. With Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Dan Rather all leaving their newscasts during the last 11 months, there has been monumental change in TV news. But the Texas native, who has put in more years as anchor than any of them, each weeknight still brings 2.5 million Americans the most dependable hour of information and analysis on television. And Lehrer, who heads the PBS broadcast now known as the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, which this week marks its 30th anniversary, has no plans for change.
