Eight months ago, C. Miles Smith was up to his elbows in dishwater at his cousin's restaurant in Georgia.Today, he's in hot water of another sort as the controversial afternoon talk show host on WOLB-AM (1010) radio station.Since taking to the airwaves here June 10, Smith, who espouses black nationalism with a conservative bent, has become a lightning rod for controversy, accusing prominent black ministers and politicians of selling out the black community. He considers it a coup that he was instrumental in arousing community opposition to the Canaan Food Outlet.

The video opens with a somber-looking man wearing an athletic jersey, glasses and a neatly trimmed goatee. "Do you own a handgun? Where is it now?" he asks as the footage swaps from black and white to color with each question. "Is it loaded? Is it locked away? Do your kids know where it is? "I never thought my 4-year-old son would find mine. But he did," the man says, his voice scratchy with emotion, just before a single shot rings out. "Now he's gone." The man is Miles Smith Sr. The video is designed for use as a public service announcement.

C. Miles Smith says he's a talk-show host you won't be able to peg."Sometimes I'll be Arsenio, sometimes I'll be Malcolm," says the 46-year-old Smith, who can be heard 2 p.m.-6 p.m. weekdays on WOLB-AM (1010), "but I'll never be Stepin Fetchit."That sounds like a safe bet, judging by his five years on Atlanta radio, where he went from being a caller (known as Ralph from Ben Hill) to being host of his own show. There, he gained a reputation for shooting from the hip, for a no-holds-barred approach that earned him his share of fans -- and controversy.

Schmoke's politics and sex life.During his regular program Thursday, Smith, the host of a morning talk show on WOLB-AM (1010), criticized Schmoke for defending city police Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier, who was under fire for miscounting the city's shootings.Smith said on his program that Schmoke was defending Frazier because the commissioner perhaps had pictures of the mayor in compromising situations.

Miles Smith fans the flames of race hatredTalk show host Miles Smith (Dec. 27) says his "main goal is to entertain" and that his "only sacred cow is the truth."Mr. Smith gets it very wrong on both accounts. He has achieved popularity at the expense of truth and intellectual integrity.Even an occasional listener will be aware that his show is filled with expressions of hatred toward whites and Asians as well as blacks who do not agree with his radical and oft-times loony theories of how best to help the African-American community.

1608: VOYAGES UP THE BAY On July 24, 1608, Capt. John Smith, the explorer and famed co-founder of the colony in Jamestown, Va., set out on his second voyage up the Chesapeake. In the two voyages Smith made that summer, he entered every river and inlet and covered 3,000 miles. Smith's 1608 voyage is of special interest to Harford County residents because the first authentic information about the upper Chesapeake territory comes from his records. Smith made a fairly accurate map of the area and its islands and shores.

For just the second time in the months since their 4-year-old son's death, Miles and Nicole Smith mustered the strength to visit the cemetery. They stood, silently, at a hilltop gravesite marked by a tattered, blue-and-white stuffed dog. The father, a sturdy, athletic man wearing a medallion with his boy's image, hung his head and squeezed his eyes shut. A few feet away, a video camera rolled. Less than six months ago, during a game of hide-and-seek, Miles Patrick Smith Jr. found his father's loaded handgun wrapped in a towel inside a blue gym bag. Right there, in the living room of the family's Randallstown home, Miles Jr. pulled the trigger.

The Coast Guard transported a 58-year-old woman off a cruise ship on the Potomac River Friday after she was injured in a fall. The woman — who was not identified — was taken to shore by a 45-foot response boat from the Coast Guard's Station St. Inigoes and then transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore by helicopter, said Petty Officer 3rd Class Jasmine Mieszala, a Coast Guard spokeswoman. The Coast Guard said a crew member from the Baltimore-based Grandeur of the Seas called for assistance around 10 p.m. Friday about 10 nautical miles off Smith Point in Charles County.
