HERSHEY, PA -- Maryland first played in the Big 33 Football Classic in 1985, but as players stood alongside the 45-yard line at Hersheypark Stadium on Saturday evening for the starting lineups, the scene was relatively new. Though Maryland was dominated last year during its first appearance in the high school all-star game since 1992, it looked to finally prove that it could compete in an environment where it has historically struggled. Maryland beat Pennsylvania only twice during the last Big 33 series, which lasted eight years.

Spencer Myers, a Maryland wrestler who in high school was named Pennsylvania's defensive player of the year , is joining the Terps' football program, coach Randy Edsall announced Wednesday. The senior from Selinsgrove, Pa., will continue to wrestle and will join the football team as a defensive lineman. "This is something I have been contemplating since coming to Maryland," Myers said in a statement. “It was one of the best decisions in my life to wrestle. But an opportunity arose to get a scholarship to play football and it's something I've really wanted to do. It's a great opportunity for me. I love both sports and I didn't want to give up one for the other.

Your editorial alleging that Pennsylvania's voter ID statute is designed to disenfranchise eligible voters ignores many basic facts ("Vote suppression in Pa.," Aug. 17). Under the statute, Pennsylvania will be giving out the requisite state IDs free of charge. In addition, multiple forms of identification are acceptable, including driver's licenses, passports, military IDs, college IDs, and government employee IDs. Furthermore, anyone who presents a Social Security card and two proofs of residence will get the requisite ID and voters who have no ID will be allowed to cast a provisional ballot pending proof of identity within six days.

While Maryland and most other Chesapeake Bay states are making decent progress in reducing pollution fouling the estuary, Pennsylvania is "substantially off track" and will receive additional federal help and backup action if necessary, the Environmental Protection Agency reported Thursday. In a review of how all six bay states and the District of Columbia are doing in meeting their federally mandated cleanup targets, the EPA downgraded its rating of Pennsylvania's performance after finding the state fell short of meeting most of its pollution reduction targets for 2013 and appears unlikely to achieve its next "milestone" goals unless efforts are intensified.

Former McDonogh star safety Josh Woods had to do his research. When the Maryland commit received an email in early January saying he'd been selected to represent his home state in the Big 33 Football Classic - an annual interstate all-star game for top high school football players - he had no clue what it meant. Woods had never heard of the 57-year-old game, which is known for its Super Bowl streak - there has not been a Super Bowl that didn't include a Big 33 alumnus. He was unaware that notable NFL players such as Dan Marino, Joe Namath and Joe Montana had played in the game.

Steven Scott's current show is just called "Pennsylvania," and it features scenes from our neighbor to the north in works by four artists. Robert Andriulli's hillsides are unsettling and vaguely threatening, as if something bad is about to happen. More placid and welcoming are David Hopkins' farm scenes. Joseph Sweeney contributes farm scenes as well, but also pictures of rowers on rivers that have great precedents in the works of that other Pennsylvania artist, Thomas Eakins. And Matthew Daub presents unromanticized small town scenes, as in "Willow Street" here.

TC Harris Wofford, who was thought to be a Democratic sacrificial lamb when he was appointed to a vacant Senate seat in Pennsylvania last spring, is now given a good chance to defeat his Republican opponent, former two-term governor and former U.S. attorney general Dick Thornburgh, in Tuesday's special election. It would be the upset of the era. He was down 40 points in polls this summer. Mr. Wofford would become the first Pennsylvania Democrat elected to the Senate in 19 years -- and only the second in 50 years.

Joey Jobes' workshop is a small, two-story building in Havre de Grace, minutes from the Susquehanna Flats at the top of the Chesapeake Bay. The space is dominated by saws, knives, paints and hundreds of blocks in various stages of transforming into ducks, geese and other birds. Most horizontal surfaces are covered in tools and supplies, but Jobes seems to know where everything is. "My life is business," Jobes said. A second-generation decoy carver in the self-proclaimed decoy capital of the world, he has been in his business for most of his 48 years and goes about it with practiced ease.
