Outhouses. Potbellied stoves. Four-mile walks in the snow. These are legacies of the Rosenwald Schools. For the past several weeks, county students have been studying the schools, a loosely affiliated network for African-American children that a white businessman, Julius Rosenwald, helped start with a grant in 1917. Twenty-three would spring up in Anne Arundel County alone. But what fascinated history students at North County High School in Glen Burnie and Southern High School in Harwood were the minutiae -- where children went to the bathroom, how they stayed warm and got to school, and what their classrooms looked like.

The standoff in Annapolis over raising the minimum wage intensified Tuesday, as Gov. Martin O'Malley met with Senate President Thomas V.

When Tuesday's Maryland Day ceremony was relocated to the Baltimore Basilica because of the snow, several speakers noted the significance of the location. As the first Catholic cathedral in the country, in a state with a history of religious tolerance, some said it was the ideal place to gather. "It's extremely significant to people in Maryland," but also to people across the country, said Mortimer Newlin Stead Sellers, University of Baltimore School of Law professor, after the ceremony.

Happy Maryland Day."Housesitter" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Steve Martin is Newt Davis, an architect who, jilted by his girlfriend (for whom he's just built a dream house), has a one-night fling with bubbly blond con artist Gwen (Goldie Hawn, who else?). Much to Newt's horror, Gwen decides to move in and soon has everyone convinced she's his wife -- including the original girlfriend (Dana Delany). Lots of fun, and with Hawn and Delany to choose between, it sounds like Martin would have trouble losing.

The Pride of Baltimore II took its first sail of the season Monday, as it traveled to Annapolis carrying a replica of the flag that inspired the national anthem. The flag has been displayed publicly only once since it was created by Maryland Historical Society volunteers last summer to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812. On Tuesday it will play an integral role in the state's observation of Maryland Day, which celebrates the arrival of European colonists in Maryland in 1634.

College junior Steve Moirano has no children of his own, but he played the proud parent Saturday as a pair of foals debuted to a crowd of onlookers at the University of Maryland campus farm. "What was it like?" Brandon Hurn, a sophomore chemical engineering student, asked Moirano, referring to a mare known as Amazin'. "Were you there?" "I actually pulled the foals out," answered Moirano, an animal sciences major planning to go into veterinary medicine. He and a few classmates were on hand to show off the foals - the first born on the farm in 30 years - and answer questions at Maryland Day, the university's annual campuswide showcase.

COLLEGE PARK -- More than a dozen former Maryland football players made their way onto the field at Byrd Stadium on Wednesday, likely for the final time in their playing careers. It was the Terps ' pro day, and the players were looking to show off their capabilities to 14 NFL scouts on hand. It's a nerve-racking experience. The players took part in a series of drills that tested their speed, agility and athleticism in hopes that their performance will lead to a team calling their name during April's NFL draft.

There was no surprise and little wonder for trainer King Leatherbury, when his nearly machine-like 6-year-old gelding Ben's Cat won yet again Saturday on Maryland Million Day at Laurel Park. Victory has become expected. At age 79, with 6,349 career victories - third all-time in racing history - Leatherbury has pretty much seen it all in 53 years of training. Yet, of the thousands of horses that have passed through his barn over the years, none has been able to get it done like Ben's Cat. Bred by Leatherbury, Ben's Cat didn't even race as a 2-year-old because of a broken pelvis, but he has produced almost nothing but trips to the winner's circle since his career began three years ago. Under jockey Julien Pimentel, the dark brown speedster, sired by an obscure stallion named Parker's Storm Cat, raced in third place off dueling long shots Boltin' Out and Steady Warrior in the $100,000 Maryland Million Turf Sprint, took control at the top of the stretch and held off a late challenge from Heros Reward to win by three-quarters of a length.

It was not a wave of historic appreciation that kept the General Assembly from deleting Maryland Day as a paid holiday this year. It was a wave of state employees that did the trick.History "had nothing to do with it," observed Bill Bolander, executive director of Council 92 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents 10,000 state employees. "It's just another benefit state employees have had for many years," one they would not give up without punishing legislators at the ballot box in the fall.

The Boniface family of Bonita Farm in Darlington has been through a lot this year. Benjamin Boniface, 20, died when he lost control of his pickup truck on the private farm lane early one morning in June after "he failed to negotiate a curve," according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. And Deputed Testamony, their home-bred who was the oldest living Triple Crown race winner and the last Maryland-bred horse to win the Preakness, passed away at age 32 in September. But the Boniface family, like their horses, is made of hardy stock.

Maryland opened its football training camp today. Here are some highlights from Media Day: ** Maryland says it will have players' names on the backs of at least some of its jerseys. That represents a change from last season. The school displayed red and white jerseys today at the Gossett Football Team House. Those jerseys will include players' names. But keep in mind that the team -- which has more uniform combinations that fashion models have shoes -- may wear other jerseys that may not include individuals' names.
