The general election is still more than two months away but here's a bit of friendly advice to candidates hoping to win office in Maryland: Don't use the Conowingo Dam as an excuse to stop cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay. That would seem like common sense but it's become increasingly clear that damning the dam has become a popular political strategy. Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan released a 30-second ad through his website last month that essentially blames the Conowingo for the bay's woes and urges voters to fight back against other pollution-fighting strategies endorsed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Democratically-controlled state government.

When Phillip Gyau was inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame in 2008, his 15-year-old son had to take the day off. As Joseph Gyau came to know, the national team's residency program isn't for the faint of heart. “A profession like this starts early,” said Amina Gyau, Joseph's mother. Now 21, Joseph continues to climb the ladder: He signed in June with the Under-23 team of Borussia Dortmund, a Champions League staple and one of the two most prominent clubs in Germany's Bundesliga.

Virginia's women's lacrosse team got off to the start it wanted in yesterday's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament opener against Maryland. The No. 7 Cavaliers jumped on the No. 8 Terrapins with three goals in less than 2 1/2 minutes and the defending ACC champs went on to a 15-11 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. Virginia will meet No. 3 Duke for the title tomorrow at 1 p.m. Maryland's defense succeeded in holding the Cavaliers' top goal scorer, Tyler Leachman, without a goal, but Virginia had so many offensive weapons that the Terps struggled to contain them all. Cary Chasney led the Cavaliers with five goals while Amy Appelt, Kate Breslin and Nikki Lieb had three each.

GERMANTOWN - Supporters of the Maryland Bays' under-14 boys team have grown accustomed to a halftime shift. It's not any adjustment made on the field, but rather above it, coming from the fans themselves who are used to finding the overwhelming majority of play on whichever end their Bays are attacking. Yesterday at the Maryland SoccerPlex proved no different, despite the fact that the Bays were making their debut in the Snickers U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. The Baltimore-based club picked up right where it left off in state and region play, jumping on the Eagles of Alpharetta, Ga., from the start, eventually getting the all-important first goal in the 20th minute en route to a 3-0 opening-round win that was both bold and comforting.

JAMES ISLAND -- It's hard to worry on this remote, pristine island. A narrow strip of sand flanked by pines, it looks like the perfect place to forget the past and let the future take care of itself -- at least for one sunny afternoon.But appearances deceive -- and University of Maryland scientist Court Stevenson gets a little more anxious every time he visits James Island."This was a plantation that went at least half a mile out to sea," Stevenson said during a recent visit to the thin ribbon of land in the Chesapeake Bay -- all that remains of an island that was once 1,200 acres and now is fewer than 100."

MARYLAND'S shallow coastal bays are a fragile treasure, an important nursery of fish and crabs. There's little dispute of their ecological value, even while greater protection efforts have long focused on the main Chesapeake estuary.So it's disturbing that federal officials are taking the lead in trying to halt the degradation of Sinepuxent Bay by a shoreline developer, while the Maryland Department of the Environment repeats its compliant refrain: the developer was doing everything he was asked to do.According to the Army Corps of Engineers, however, the developer of the golf course and subdivision near Ocean City had failed to protect the underwater grasses -- required by his permit -- while bulldozing the shoreline and creating heavy erosion and runoff into the bay.It took the personal intervention of Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest, at the request of alarmed environmentalists and the National Park Service, that brought regulatory authorities to the construction site last month and got an agreement from developer Tom Ruark to stem the flow of mud into the bay immediately.

He helped the Heat a year ago boot the Spirit from the playoffs -- an event that is still vivid for Spirit players.

The Baltimore Bays' Billy Ronson has been in pro soccer for 21 years, and he has seen worse times than this.When he was with the Blast, from 1986 to 1992, there was one year the team didn't make the Major Soccer League playoffs. That still burns in his memory.The Bays, in their maiden season in the U.S. Interregional Soccer League, are reeling. They are 0-4 going into tonight's game against the Columbia (S.C.) Spirit at UMBC Stadium.With a quarter of the season gone, the Bays will be hard-pressed to become one of the four teams in the nine-team Atlantic Division to qualify for the playoffs.
