It's a day for changes and surprises. The changes include the return of ABC's "Matlock," which, with its two-hour premiere, has the unfortunate side effect of pre-empting "My So-Called Life." There's also the continued earlier-evening showing of "Chicago Hope" on CBS. The major surprise? An entertaining made-for-TV movie from the USA Network.* "Matlock" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 13) -- Grampa Simpson will be thrilled: Andy Griffith returns as Matlock, in a two-hour episode that also marks the return of another familiar TV face.

Arthur L. Rhoads Jr., a Baltimore attorney who maintained a general law practice for more than six decades, died Thursday of complications from a stroke at St. Agnes Hospital. He was 87. "He was a lawyer's lawyer and was representing the little guy, like Andy Griffith on the TV show 'Matlock' before there was a 'Matlock,' " said Andrew J. Long, who retired from the practice of law in 2001. "He was an incredible man and friend. There were no airs about him. " The son of a grocer and a homemaker, Arthur Lampe Rhoads Jr. was born and raised in Frederick, where he graduated in 1942 from St. John's High School.

When friends recalled Marshall Shure yesterday, they compared him to Matlock, a folksy, down-home attorney who could lull people into thinking he was their friend while he was tearing their testimony apart. He could equally play the part of father confessor and social worker. Mr. Shure, an assistant state's attorney who prosecuted vagrancy, car theft, spouse beating and drug possession cases in Baltimore's neighborhood courts - mostly in the Southern District - died of lung cancer Wednesday at the Levindale Hebrew Center and Hospital.

The shooting deaths of two sisters in the southern Anne Arundel community of Lothian on Wednesday are just the latest tragedy for a grieving family. One of the sisters spoke in February at a funeral for her nephew, who was killed fighting in Iraq. Cheryl Timmons read a letter that the soldier's wife, Breon Matlock, had written to Army Spc. Michael Benson Matlock Jr. After the couple's first date, she wrote, "from then on it was us. ... You said, 'If we love each other we can make it work.

An organ played as mourners streamed down the aisles of an Annapolis church yesterday toward the flag-draped coffin holding the body of Army Spc. Micheal Benson Matlock Jr. Specialist Matlock, less than three years out of Glen Burnie High School, died last week in Iraq. Yesterday, he was remembered for his devotion to both the high school sweetheart he married barely a year ago and their baby boy - and for the bravery that enabled him to sign on for battle. "It takes courage to do what he did. Nobody joins the Army during wartime," said the Rev. Kaipha Downs, who delivered the eulogy, and who had known the soldier since he was a young boy. "Mike did," she said, to rousing applause from hundreds at the service at the First Christian Community Church.

In the back yard of his Walkersville home, Ray Matlock sits in a gazebo as two Siamese cats spar. They'll be all right, he says. They make him smile, even today. The midday is perfectly weathered: a sneak of full fall in the air, football weather. Matlock wears a Ravens visor and talks so softly you wonder if he is always this soft-spoken, or whether the death of his boy has knocked the words out of him. A 1968 Oldsmobile is in the garage; his son had restored the classic. The car is a surviving point of pride.

My husband and I live in Ellicott City and we took a Wild West trip in May through eight Midwestern states. Of course, seeing the incredible sight of Mount Rushmore was one of the highlights. To walk beneath it and read the history was very fascinating. President Lincoln's nose is 17 feet long - that's the size of the Statue of Liberty's entire head. We also found other interesting places to visit along our trek. On the campus of Wichita State University we discovered the original Pizza Hut, which was founded by two students who were attending the university.

It is quite possible I've turned into that most dreaded of entertainment consumers: the movietalker. I first became aware of the movietalker years ago while watching TV after dinner with my family, including my Grandma Fricke, the Grande Dame of movietalkers. We were watching Matlock, which, for those of you unfamiliar with classic TV, was an early mystery/courtroom drama; a precursor to CSI only without the kinky deaths and creepy characters. Matlock was the Little House on the Prairie of crime-solving shows, featuring the wholesome Andy Griffith.

A television thought for today:"The art of taxation consists in so plucking the goose as to obtain the largest amount of feathers with the least possible amount of hissing."That's the sarcastic sentiment which H.L. Mencken once attributed to 17th century French statesman Jean Baptiste Colbert, but why is it as appropriate today as in the 1600s? Because local taxpayers are hissing.Although it has not been a particularly arousing off-year election season in Maryland, WMAR-Channel 2 tonight taps an issue which seems to have transcended the general apathy: disenchantment with taxes.

ODDS'N' ENDS OFF THE BROADCAST BEAMS:* The importance of familiar, likable faces as a direct function of local TV ratings was illustrated pretty clearly recently by radio station WCBM-AM 680's mock election promotion at the Maryland State Fair.In addition to casting mock votes in political races, visitors to the WCBM booth were asked to choose their top five TV personalities from among a list of more than two dozen on-air people, from newscasters to weathermen.It's no surprise that WJZ-Channel 13, top-rated news station here for years, captured six of the top 10 spots.
