The family of a 14-year-old girl who was electrocuted on a Druid Hill Park softball field in 2006 has settled a lawsuit with a private contractor, but is seeking to revive litigation against the city that a judge had previously dismissed. An attorney for Douglas Electric and Lighting confirmed the settlement but said the amount was confidential. The lawyer for the company, Thomas V. McCarron, said executives decided to negotiate after a judge granted the city immunity but allowed the family to pursue the electrical company in court.

James L. McCarron Jr., a 22-year member of Taneytown's City Council who opposed an ordinance that made English the official language of Taneytown last fall, was elected mayor last night. McCarron, 59, a mortgage broker who is active in state politics, defeated Councilman Darryl G. Hale by 59 votes for the top government job in the small Carroll County municipality. "It probably just came down to the overall experience I've had on the council ... and also on the state level through the Maryland Municipal League and other organizations I belong to and am affiliated with," McCarron said in a telephone interview after hearing the results.

A week ago, Chris McCarron didn't expect even to be on the Pimlico Race Course grounds on Preakness Day.Yesterday, he wound up in the winner's circle.For McCarron, one of thoroughbred racing's most accomplished jockeys, victory aboard Pine Bluff in the 117th Preakness Stakes was not the first time a Preakness has had a happy ending. McCarron was also the winning jockey here in 1987, riding Alysheba.This victory may have been sweeter. It certainly was stranger."I'm really so lucky to be here," said McCarron, looking tired and happy in his mud-splattered silks.

Jim McCarron has a vision of turning an old clapboard building in Taneytown's downtown into a showcase of the city's 241-year history."For years, I've been a proponent of an idea to start some kind of museum that would reflect the city's rich heritage and history," said Mr. McCarron, a three-term city councilman.And while for many of those years Mr. McCarron was stumped when it came to housing such a museum, a now-vacant pharmacy across the street from City Hall -- which the city acquired last year -- almost begs to be used.

McCarron's second win yesterday came two days after he had made his last out-of-town appearance by riding two winners and taking an all-star jockey competition at Lone Star Park near Dallas.

Under the care of Maryland trainer Tony Dutrow, Burning Roma proved last year that he was one of the best 2-year-olds in the country. Then a strange thing happened. Burning Roma's owner, Harold Queen, took the colt away from Dutrow and brought him to Florida for the winter. Queen owns a home near Tampa Bay Downs. There, Burning Roma trained and won two races, including the Tampa Bay Derby. Neither Dutrow nor anyone else from his Laurel Park barn laid eyes on Burning Roma for nearly five months.
