Although Randy Eugene McBee was classified by the state's correctional system as a medium-security risk, he was serving the balance of his sentence in one of Maryland's lowest-security prisons.Correctional officials said McBee was placed in the prerelease system -- first at the Central Laundry Pre-Release Unit in Sykesville, and then the Eastern Pre-Release Unit in Church Hill -- so he could be "phased back" into society, rather than put back on the street from a medium-security prison.Leonard A. Sipes, a Maryland corrections spokesman, said prison officials "are doing a cursory review" of the classification process that put McBee into the prerelease unit.

Chesapeake girls soccer coach Jerry McBee has long considered senior Tracey Dahlen his sweeper-plus, and it's easy to understand why. The four-year standout has all the defensive prerequisites: instincts to read the game, smarts to make the right decisions and natural athleticism to make sure positive things happen. Then comes the bonus from Dahlen: a long run with the ball or sharp passing with teammates that supplies timely offense. Simply put by McBee: "I've come to expect it all from Tracey."

In hindsight, Andrew McBee realizes he went a speed hump too far. For almost three years, McBee used a homemade speed hump to slow vehicles in the alley behind his home on Murdock Road in Rodgers Forge. McBee even installed a small sign, warning motorists of the hump, although the sign said bump, for McBee was not aware there were distinctions between the two so-called traffic-calming devices. Then, in spring of this year, McBee's neighbor, Greg McClelland, asked if McBee would make a similar hump in the alley behind his home.

Two county girls basketball programs entered Wednesday's contests with 4-0 records. And then there were none. North County had a perfect mark before meeting Arundel. But the defending Class 4A state champion Wildcats put an end to that streak with a 51-49 squeaker in Glen Burnie. The Knights, now 4-1 overall and 2-1 in the county, are powered by the senior trio of forward Stephanie Watts (averaging 12.8 points a game), forward Stacy Karcher (11.8) and guard Page Macey (11.4). Northeast also was 4-0 until Severna Park handed the Eagles a 59-45 loss in Pasadena.
