Adam Benson is a different kind of weekend warrior. A former Marine marksman whose career in the military was derailed by a serious motorcycle accident, Benson has turned what he thinks is a natural ability to shoot into potential reality television stardom. An architectural engineer by training, the 48-year-old Sykesville resident was among 16 to make the cut on History Channel's first season of "Top Shot", and he was brought back earlier this year to participate in the show's fifth edition as one of its All-Stars.

Baltimore police officials credited one of their sharpshooters with saving the lives of two children who were held hostage until the marksman shot their captor early yesterday -- just as he tried to place a gun in the mouth of a 2-year-old girl.The sharpshooter "saved that baby's life," said police spokesman Sam Ringgold. "He had a split second where he had a chance to save the child's life, and he acted. The man could be heard saying to the child, 'Open your mouth.' "The four-hour standoff at the Edmondale Apartments near Edmondson Village ended about 1:30 a.m., shortly after the marksman -- whom police refused to identify -- shot Keith Princeton Brown, 28, in the neck from about 100 feet away.

Henry Miller "Hank" Worthington, a retired hardware executive and music lover who enjoyed waterfowl hunting, died Monday of complications from dementia at his Garrison home. He was 80. Mr. Worthington, the son of a hardware executive and a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and raised in Forest Park and Garrison. He was a 1948 graduate of Gilman School and attended Princeton University, where he played ice hockey and was captain of the skeet shooting team. "He was an expert marksman, a skill inherited from his father, a 13-time Maryland state skeet and trap champion," said a son, Edward H. "Ned" Worthington of Garrison.

Making an Olympic team often has as much to do with timing as it does with talent. Sometimes, the difference can be a pulled muscle the day of a big race. Sometimes, it's a matter of being too young or too old.And sometimes, it's a case of being called away to serve in the U.S. Army during the Persian Gulf War.Rob Harbison's first chance to be an Olympic marksman passed the day he heard his name being called out over the loudspeaker at a shooting range in Camp Perry, Ohio, one fall night in 1990.

OAKLAND -- It was a school morning, but Sierra Stiles wasn't gathering her books. Instead, in the pre-dawn blackness, the 8-year-old pulled on a camouflage shirt, pants and boots, and grabbed a high-powered hunting rifle. The third-grader from Western Maryland had beaten out 1,992 applicants - mostly men - to be selected through a state lottery as one of only 200 to obtain hunting licenses for Maryland's second black bear hunt in a half-century. Hiding with her father behind trees on her family's farm, Sierra used a .243-caliber rifle to shoot a 211-pound male black bear yesterday morning, the first kill of the season, according to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Union Maj. Gen. John F. Reynolds wrote no memoir as he hurried his 1st Corps infantrymen toward Gettysburg at dawn on July 1, 1863, but it is likely that his thoughts were filled with a commander's concern for the impending battle and a man's concern for the defense of his home. Reynolds, whose home was in Lancaster, Pa., only 50 miles away, arrived on the field at Gettysburg about 10 a.m., just in time to strengthen the thin line of Union cavalrymen who had been defending the approaches to the town since dawn.

More NCAA Tourney Tidbits:OK, gang, the fun's over, back to work.That's what it has been since the selections and pairings were announced by the NCAA three days ago, a time of joy, the optimism of youth, the glory of the chase and all that. Now it's a return to blown calls, switching zones, endless timeouts and self-imposed pressure. Players, try to have fun in spite of that sideline maniac screaming at you.* Everyone deplores the "cupcake" scheduling teams do early prior to beginning conference play.
