Mary Leona Gage, the 1957 Miss Maryland pageant winner who was Miss USA for only a day before officials stripped her of her title because she was a married mother of two, has died in Los Angeles at 71. A son, Robert Kaminer, told the Associated Press Saturday that Gage died of heart failure at a Sherman Oaks hospital Tuesday. Gage was the only Marylander ever selected as Miss USA. And, like Vanessa Williams and Carrie Prejean decades later, she was not the last to become famous after a pageant scandal.

After 83 years of gracefully applauding as someone else sashays to the familiar tune of "There She Is...," Miss Maryland is ready to bring home the crown from Atlantic City.

At 22, this University of Maryland graduate and Severn resident is accomplished and articulate enough to back up her confident claims.

At the Miss U.S.A. pageant in March, Miss Maryland Megan Gunning took home the style award, given out by Clairol to "the delegate who best exemplifies a sense of personal style" -- meaning good hair, good clothes and good runway persona. It was no big surprise: Appearance is a big part of Gunning's world, and not just her own, either. The 22-year-old runs her own image-consulting business (called "Vis a Vis") from her hometown of Fallston and works as a hairstylist and makeup artist at Heaventouch Spa & Salon in Timonium.

Temperatures are expected to be in the 50s when showers arrive Wednesday afternoon, but with temperatures plunging as a cold front moves in behind the rain, according to the National Weather Service. Lows early Thursday were expected in the mid-20s, bringing a chance that any precipitation lingering into the early morning could fall as snow.

- The Dundalk father and daughter sought in a multi-state search were found a day after they inconspicuously checked in at a small South Carolina motel more than 400 miles from where their journey began. Timothy Virts handed over $36 in cash for a single room with his 11-year-old daughter Caitlyn smiling by his side. Colonial Inn co-owner Carol Gause could tell the pair was "a little girl and her daddy. " "I didn't sense anything wrong," said Gause, who rented them Room 101, a single next to the motel office, on Thursday night.

Ben's Cat came within a neck of setting a new Maryland Million record for victories, but fell short as Ellendale Racing's Roadhog pulled ahead in a photo finish in the $125,000 Maryland Million Turf. Both horses finished the one-mile course in 1:27.06. Ben's Cat trailed early, but was second going into the turn. In the final stretch,  Ben's Cat -- trained by King Leatherbury -- pulled ahead but was then outpaced by the lunging Roadhog. nfouriezos@baltsun.com twitter.com/nick4iezos

Smiling, Christina Denny took the stage with the 52 other hopefuls in preparation for the Miss America competition earlier this month.

"Losing Miss Maryland three times could be depressing," Denny, 22, said minutes before taking the stage for the closed-door rehearsal in Boardwalk Hall, site of the competition.

Here are notes from Maryland's football practice held in pads today inside toasty Byrd Stadium. I'll also have a separate notebook for online and print this afternoon: ** Wide receiver Deon Long has looked like a perfect complement during early training camp to Stefon Diggs in the slot. But Long suffered a back injury and is listed as week-to-week. Other items from the medical report: Running back Joe Riddle took a blow to the head and is listed as day-to-day. Don't count Riddle out for playing time.

The 23-year-old Silver Spring native will more than likely be renting local filmmaker John Waters' Hairspray, after missing a question about the movie's setting during a quiz show-style round of questioning Saturday night. "I wouldn't mind seeing that," she said of the Baltimore-based '80s flick. "I'm very open to researching that movie."
