Jeff Lewatowski trudged upstream, the chilly, knee-deep Gunpowder River flowing around his waterproof overalls. Following the inside curve of a bend, he picked a likely looking spot and settled in, much like the trout he planned to catch. "They want to take advantage of the bugs," said Lewatowski, 39, who lives in Havre de Grace and guides fishing trips around the state. "They get very excitable the more bugs there are on the water. … They compete in a spot in the creek to sit. " May through June is sulphur mayfly season, with thousands of mayfly nymphs swimming up from sunken logs and rocks to molt and flutter away for their brief adult lives.

Theresa and Thomas Crouse always knew their son Joseph was self-motivated and determined. The Taneytown residents weren't surprised when he started taking Advanced Placement exams and online college courses while still in high school.

He was also on his way to earning two master's degrees.

Q. I'm getting ready to plant some shade trees and fruit trees in my back yard, but I just got back my soil test recommendation and the pH is very low -- 5.2. The guy at the garden center said if I spread lime now it will take too long for it to actually raise the pH. He told me to put the lime right in the planting holes. Will that burn the trees? A. You will create an excessively "sweet" soil and nutrient imbalances if you apply the recommended amount of lime directly to the planting holes.

Bass fishing probably entered a new era when Ken Cook squeezed out a 3-ounce win over Randy Romig in the $200,000 BASS Masters Classic here Saturday. Enter the age of the pH factor.Cook of Meers, Okla., took 33 pounds 2 ounces from the upper Chester, all of them while playing on water acidity. In three days of casting, when the pH strayed far from Cook's preferred 7.5 to 8.0, he moved to another spot.On Saturday's finale, he didn't have to move. He stayed put on one area of the lower Elk River, caught 12 pounds 10 ounces, and moved from fourth to first place and the winner's $50,000 jackpot.

Not so phast. Perfectly good English words are getting a meaning makeover when their beginning letter f is substituted with ph. Think of phat, phishing and phood and you might wonder what the ph is going on. To make it more vexing, there seems no common explanation for the respellings. Phat, meaning very good, excellent or sexy, is said to be African-American argot dating to at least 1963, although some late to the party have made a vulgar acronym of it. Phishing used to mean attending a concert by the band Phish (a name possibly derived from that of band member Jon Fishman)

Some large insects that look like wasps on steroids are burrowing into a few places in my lawn. They leave a mound of dirt. They have not attacked my dogs or us, but I have about 10 mounds in my yard. It's a cicada killer wasp. Despite their appearance and name, cicada killer wasps usually won't bother people even when provoked. They are considered beneficial because they reduce cicada populations - annual cicadas, not the 17-year species. Females are rarely seen because they are either in the burrows or out hunting cicadas.

The soil test on my garden says the pH is 6.7. I need to find out what plants grow in that pH. Congratulations. Your soil pH is in the ideal range that most plants like — slightly acid. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 as neutral. Numbers above 7 are alkaline, and numbers below 7 are acid. Each number increases exponentially to the 10th power. Thus, a 6 pH is 10 times more acidic than 7 pH; and 5 pH is 100 times more acidic than 7 pH. Soil pH determines the availability of nutrients to plant roots.

Is there such thing as leaf-cycling? I grass-cycle. Do leaves add fertilizer to lawns like grass clippings do? How deep can I make the shredded leaves? Green organic materials are high in nitrogen. Grass-cycling can add as much as half of your lawn's yearly nitrogen fertilizer. Brown organic materials, such as leaves, improve soil structure and add some nitrogen, though not as much as is added by the same weight of grass clippings. By all means, leaf-cycle by mowing your fallen leaves and grass.

Since others like Mediaite and Eric Wemple in the Washington Post have commented on my denunciation of NBC News on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday for hiring the woefully unqualified Chelsea Clinton as a special correspondent, I guess I better explain how I really feel. I was only warming up in denouncing this inside job among the elite one-percenters when I said: "At a time when young people who have played by the rules, who have gone to college, who have worked hard are camping out in American cities because the system has failed them in terms of providing jobs, to then take another member of that elite - the 1 percent - and give them one of those jobs is really a dispiriting message to the people in this country...

Marianne Woessner is a North Carolina nurse and midwife who sees drug addicts with good jobs and from good families nearly every day. They occupy a hidden world that belies the stereotype of rail-thin junkies stumbling from one street corner to the next in search of a fix. Woessner was the mother of one such drug addict. She made the discovery Sunday night, when a Baltimore police officer called to tell her that her daughter, Carrie Elisabeth John, died that evening after apparently injecting herself with buprenorphine while trying to get high with her boyfriend, Clinton Blaine McCracken, in their rented rowhouse near downtown.

DR: It's nice to talk to someone here under 6 feet tall. Priest, you and Jermaine Lewis are the posters on the wall of my 10-year-old son's room. PH: Really? That's nice. I know young people look up to people in the limelight, and it touches my heart, it really does, and it reminds me of the responsibility I have.

Morgan State University has objected to the creation of a doctoral program for aspiring community college administrators at the University of Maryland, University College, raising questions about how the state will handle competition between traditional universities and their online peers. Morgan offers a similar degree and has told the Maryland Higher Education Commission, which would have to approve the program, that UMUC could lure students away, in violation of civil rights precedents set by the U.S. Supreme Court.
