As a freshman in college, Jourdan Stickler played in a rural town for an infamously intense coach . When the former Annapolis star decided to leave Morehead State, he looked for the opposite. In Houston Baptist, Stickler - a former Baltimore Sun All-Metro first-team selection - found what he was looking for. “I was really impressed with the coaching staff,” said Stickler, who signed with the Huskies last month . “Particularly the fact that [the coaches] seemed laidback, in contrast to Morehead, where I had a coach that could be described as 'in your face.' … It's in the heart of Houston, so the city is all around it compared to Morehead, which was in a rural area.

Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin told Anne Arundel County government, civic and business leaders yesterday that he has not abandoned hope of moving the District of Columbia's juvenile detention center to the city, even as D.C. officials push for reconstruction near the existing site abutting Fort Meade. In the closed-door meeting at the Maryland City fire station, according to several people who attended, Cardin said he is soliciting the help of the O'Malley administration and congressional colleagues to revive his stalled legislation to eject the Oak Hill Youth Center from the 888-acre site in Laurel and split the land between Anne Arundel County and the National Security Agency.

Within a day of the introduction of congressional legislation to close the crumbling Oak Hill Youth Center near Fort Meade, key Anne Arundel County officials are calling for using half of the valuable property as a West County regional park. County Executive John R. Leopold said he also supports some form of development component on the nearly 900 acres controlled by the District of Columbia. "A regional park would be a positive and attractive use of the property," said Leopold, who took steps last month to capture two other large parcels of open space for parkland, He said that would be "the lion's share of that property, leaving open the option over a small portion for other uses."
