If Carroll County gets a public shooting range, it won't be at Morgan Run, Richard J. Soisson, director of recreation and parks, told the county commissioners yesterday.State officials, in response to a letter from the Carroll County Sportsmen's Association, said that public outcry during the Morgan Run master plan hearings in July 1992 convinced them not to open a shooting range there, Mr. Soisson said.Torrey C. Brown, the Maryland secretary of natural resources, said in a letter to the sportsmen's association that noise, safety, cost and access concerns also influenced the decision.

As the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, first-year head coach Lee Hull is intent on adding a passing element to Morgan State's offense. But tailback Lamont Brown III hopes Hull won't overlook what has been the unit's traditional strength: running the football. “I look at myself and Herb [Walker Jr.] as two of the top running backs in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference],” said Brown, a redshirt sophomore. “Whether [Hull] wants to run the ball or we have to get involved with the passing game, we're still going to be there, and he has two of the best running backs in the league and can't forget about us.” Brown, redshirt sophomore Walker and senior Tracy Martin make up a formidable partnership in the offensive backfield.

A grinder with diamond teeth has made the crossing smoother for the 10,000 motorists who use the Route 32 bridge over Morgan Run every day.For two days last week, State Highway Administration crews used the milling machine to plane the concrete surface of the 450-foot span. The machine ground down bumps and eliminated dips, which had been the subject of motorists' complaints for several months."The machine can be controlled without degrading the concrete deck of the bridge," said Robert L. Fisher, SHA assistant district engineer for construction.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Morgan State had one game to play, but not the legs to play it effectively. Bidding for its first berth in the NCAA women's tournament, fourth-seeded Morgan had that mission denied yesterday in a 55-42 loss to second-seed Delaware State in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game at the RBC Center. Playing in their fifth game in 10 days and one day removed from the program's biggest upset, the Bears lost, and it was simple to understand. "We did all we could.

The meeting had been set for Feb. 28, a date published in several newspapers. The late switch made it almost impossible to alert the public.

After more than two years of debate, the state Department of Natural Resources has finally developed a draft master plan for the Morgan Run Natural Environment Area.The plan calls for development to be restricted to adding parking near trails for fishing, hiking, bird-watching and horseback riding, said park Ranger Frank Ryan, who lives at Morgan Run. That's because the park is designated among the most environmentally sensitive of state parks."The purpose for Morgan Run is the protection of the Liberty Reservoir watershed," he said.

During the previous two seasons, Morgan State's football team gave up more than 36 points a game and the team's fortunes sank as a result. This fall, that number is down to 18.2 and in the past three games, the Bears have blanked high-scoring Bethune-Cookman for more than three quarters, shut out North Carolina A&T and held Howard to 12 points (two on a safety). Over that span, the opposition is averaging slightly more than eight points and Morgan has won three straight after a 1-3 start.

REMEMBER THE guy who robbed a woman in front of her rowhouse on a Sunday night in January - "Don't make me do it," he said, suggesting a weapon that was never seen - then turned up the next morning at a job fair in a Catholic school where, by stunning coincidence, he unknowingly came face to face with his victim? (She was a volunteer at the job fair and recognized the man who took her purse as soon as he approached the registration table.) Police were summoned and arrested the guy. This week, he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault.

IF CARROLL County wants to expand and improve its tax base, it needs more land zoned for industrial development. The existing supply is minimal -- less than 3,000 acres -- and some parcels have no realistic hope of attracting industry.So the county's effort to rezone more than 1,000 acres for industrial use is welcome. But endangering a prime environmental asset in the process is folly. County planners' proposal to rezone for industry 75 acres of woods and farmland near the state's Morgan Run Natural Environment area in South Carroll is the wrong approach.
