Sophomore defensive end David Mackall , who had been suspended indefinitely Nov. 2 by Maryland head coach Randy Edsall, said Sunday that he has been granted a release from the school. Mackall, who started the first seven games this season after being a reserve linebacker as a freshman, said that a "disagreement" with Edsall stemming from a meeting over academic issues played a role in his decision to leave the football program. Edsall had said last week that he didn't think Mackall would be back with the team next year.

Elmer Elijah Mackall, a self-taught Southern Maryland piano player and gospel singer whose music drew on the days of slavery and hard times of the rural South, died of complications from emphysema Sunday at his Prince Frederick apartment. He was 81. "It was fitting that he died on a Sunday, and when he died, he was listening to a CD of his music," said a daughter, Thelma M. Clagett of Prince Frederick. Known as "Brother Mackall" and "Piano Man," Mr. Mackall was a well-known figure in Southern Maryland, where for 70 years he performed in rural African-American churches, hotels, clubs and venues such as St. Mary's College, where he was part of its first Gospel Extravaganza in 2003.

Maryland football coach Randy Edsall said Tuesday that he has begun to establish a "groundwork" for the program and that he is not discouraged by a 2-9 season in which he has found himself criticized — unfairly, he believes — for his team rules. Edsall said at his final Tuesday media session of the year that a season marked by injuries and suspensions has been challenging, but that his resolve has not been shaken. "Things have been very, very tough and very, very difficult," the first-year Maryland coach said.

Although Baltimore artist R. McGill Mackall painted more than two dozen murals during a career that spanned five decades, few survive today.Many were lost or obscured when local buildings changed hands or were remodeled. These include three aviation-related murals at the old Friendship Airport, an early 19th-century view of Mount Vernon concealed behind a lobby wall at The Sun, and 10 of the 12 murals completed for branches of Loyola Federal Savings Bank.But one Mackall mural has been preserved and moved to a location where it will be seen by more people than ever before.

Elmer Mackall is floating. That's what the man calls it, if you ask him to explain. His head rolls back into his shoulders, the way Ray Charles' does when he gives himself to blues. Eyes half-closed, body rocking, face as bright as a shaft of light, Mackall, 79, seems to be visiting a very pleasant place inside his mind the rest of us can't see. His fingers - dark, thick and kinetic, the pink nails so long they've dug scratches in the wood of his piano - scoop up the black and white keys, kneading them in such big handfuls it sets your feet to tapping, your mind to spinning.

Edmondson defensive end David Mackall has a theory about Maryland's recruiting class. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound player believes the more in-state recruits Maryland lands, the better off the program will be in the long run. "It's a big thing because for one, when I used to go up to Maryland for the games, the home crowd was into it," Mackall said. "And I feel like if more players come from the same place, it's going to be a better [atmosphere] than if players come from [other areas] ... because I feel you all have to have that friendship and trust."

David Mackall doesn't know where he would be right now had he stayed at Woodlawn High past his sophomore year. Mackall believes there's a good chance his football career would have been derailed by bad grades and bad decisions. Now a freshman at the University of Maryland, Mackall looks back with a maturity that belies the fact that he graduated from high school less than a year ago. It was his decision to transfer to Edmondson for his junior year that ultimately led to Mackall's becoming a Terrapin.

Justin Fowler sat nearly motionless in a folding chair on the aft deck, quietly scanning the water and wringing a paper plate in his hands. A moment later, when the boat hit the wake from a passing ship and started rocking, he was on his feet. Justin, a 14-year-old who has autism, found his sea legs in the light chop of Baltimore's harbor faster than the adults, who grabbed on to the boat's chrome handholds. As he got back in his chair again, his face lit up. "Whoa!" he said. More than 100 disabled children and young adults got to experience the pleasures of boating yesterday at the Easter Seals Cruise for Kids, an annual event in which private yacht owners offer free cruises to the children and their families.
