(Originally published January 25, 1944) Lee McCardell, who is now in Italy covering war activities in that theater for the Sunpapers , is not only an able reporter and writer - he is also one of the world's greatest worriers. McCardell was the main “arranger” of details on the British end of the Sunpapers' Christmas broadcast, which brought the voices of many servicemen and some Red Cross women from Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania across the Atlantic for holiday greetings.  Just before he left Britain for Algiers, McCardell wrote to his colleagues on this side of the Atlantic about his activities up to and including Christmas Day. His letter, received a few days ago and dated December 29, is offered here as a good description of what a reporter contends with in “arranging” coverage of a specific event in wartime.

The contracts awarded to Maryland's three newest assistant football coaches reflect the school's move to the Big Ten and the sport's shifting postseason landscape. The pacts contain bonuses tied to the Big Ten championship game and the new college football playoff system. An appearance in the Big Ten championship game would be worth $5,000 to new assistants Greg Studrawa (offensive line), Chad Wilt (defensive line) and Keenan McCardell (wide receivers). A Big Ten championship would be rewarded with $10,000.

Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker, producer-editor Jonas Shaffer and deputy sports editor David Selig weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you think of Mark Turgeon's request to the men's basketball team to relax and have more “fun” during games? Jeff Barker: People may scoff at it, but not me. It's not THE answer, of course. But playing with a more relaxed attitude - enjoying the game they've loved since they were kids - sure can't hurt.

Adrian LeRoy McCardell Jr., retired president and chairman of the former First National Bank of Maryland, died of cancer Saturday at his home in the Poplar Hill neighborhood of North Baltimore. He was 94. He was a leader in Baltimore's banking community during the 1960s and 1970s, when area financial institutions sought to open more branches and consumer credit card use rose, and he helped guide the bank in those areas. He joined First National in 1958, and became president in 1961 and chairman in 1968.

He was considered too small and too slow to get much notice from the pro scouts when he came out of Nevada-Las Vegas in 1991.He lasted until the 12th round of the NFL draft -- there are now only seven rounds -- before the Washington Redskins took a flier on him as the 45th receiver selected.He spent his first year on injured reserve with a knee injury and then went to Cleveland, where he was cut three times in 10 weeks in 1992.That is not the usual ticket to stardom in the NFL.Unless you're Keenan McCardell.

Jacksonville wide receiver Keenan McCardell, who had some provocative things to say after the Ravens' 39-36 victory over the Jaguars last month, was at it again this week. "We're in their heads," he told the Florida Times-Union on Wednesday about the Ravens. "We match up against these guys. We game-plan them well. It will be good." McCardell leads the AFC in catches (41) and challenges thrown at the Ravens (two). After he and Jimmy Smith combined for 22 catches worth 352 yards on Sept.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Middlebury College president John M. McCardell Jr. would seem an unlikely danger to one of Baltimore's sporting traditions. The 54-year-old Frederick native married a Park School graduate. And McCardell spent a year at Johns Hopkins beginning in fall 1972, pursuing a graduate degree in history before moving on to Harvard. "I started going to the Baltimore Orioles games when they had players no one heard of," he said, remembering Gus Triandos' inside-the-park home run in the 1950s.

On what amounted to the biggest play of the game on fourth-and-one at the Ravens' 34 late in the fourth quarter, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell turned to Keenan McCardell for a 4-yard completion.But it might as well have been Jimmy Smith.Either one of the two could have done it, and both torched the Ravens for 100-yard receiving days, the first two receivers to accomplish that this season.The duo is known as "Thunder and Lightning" in Jacksonville, and the combination worked to perfection in the Jaguars' 30-23 win over the Ravens.

Randy Edsall was a 38-year-old defensive backs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars when wide receiver Keenan McCardell arrived as a free agent for the 1996 season. McCardell, who came from the Cleveland Browns, became one of the most valuable acquisitions in the franchise's history, amassing 499 catches and 30 touchdowns over the next six seasons before departing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Edsall had an insider's view - and occasionally a stressful one - of McCardell's development.

Military personnel deployed to bases abroad, fighting in Iraq, or assigned to state-side military installations have it a little easier today when it comes to keeping in touch with the folks back home because of e-mail and cell phones. State-of-the-art communications technology has changed everything. During World War II, however, those fighting in the European and Pacific theaters informed their loved ones state-side of their activities via V-Mail, or Victory-Mail, as it was called, that always arrived with a black stamp reading: "Passed By Military Censor."

Jerome McCardell pleaded guilty yesterday to killing a man in December 1991, when he was just 17. So much in his life has changed since then, save for a constant revealed by his criminal records and in court documents: drugs and violence. McCardell was known in the early 1990s on the streets of Baltimore as MAC-10, a kind of gun. About the time of the murder, he became a father and, as part of a rap group called Young Black Mafia, released a cassette tape. He posed thuggishly in a promotional photo, aiming a .45-caliber handgun topped with a laser.

A grandson's curiosity about a World War II green wooden box led to another discovery. The box was a souvenir that his grandfather, Lee McCardell, the acclaimed Sunpapers war correspondent, had brought home from the war as a souvenir. It ended up with one of his daughters, and when she was cleaning out her home, she passed it on to her nephew, Lee McCardell "Mac" Kennedy. "Inside in his handwriting was a note that said: `Lee McCardell. Baltimore Sun. Cassino 2/6/44,'" Kennedy said. Kennedy, who is director of alumni relations at Boys' Latin School, showed the box to "Butch" Maisel, a military expert who teaches history at the North Baltimore private school.
