Maryland waterfowl hunters can buy the 2007 federal duck stamp today, a day earlier than most of the rest of the country. To boost sales of the $15 stamp, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has allowed Bass Pro Shop at Arundel Mills to roll out the stamp at 10 a.m., and the Postal Service will issue first-day cancellations. Revenue from U.S. sales, about $25 million annually, is used to buy wetlands for the National Wildlife Refuge System. Maryland has three refuges on the Eastern Shore and two on the Western Shore.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Former senator and probable Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson brought Virginia Republicans to their feet Saturday night in Richmond when he said the public no longer believes in politicians who promise to secure the U.S. border as part of a bipartisan immigration bill. "You've got to secure the border first, before you do anything," Mr. Thompson said. "The members [of Congress] say it's right here in this bill: the border. The response is, `We don't care what's on a piece of paper - secure the border.

For this simple art activity, your child will actually draw on sandpaper and with adult assistance transfer the drawing onto a piece of paper. The texture of the sandpaper will create a beautiful picture made up of tiny dots. It's especially fun for kids because their artwork will resemble pointillism, a painting technique used by post-impressionist painter Georges Seurat. He used dots of colors instead of brush strokes in his paintings.Here's how to do sandpaper art:Using crayons, draw a picture on a piece of fine-grain sandpaper.

I SEE WHERE there's a new Palm Pilot organizer on the market that costs $450 and is supposed to do everything but lube your car for you. But before you plunk down that kind of iron for an organizer, you should think about trying my system. I've used it for years. It's called: a pen and a piece of paper. Here's how it works: First thing you do is, get yourself a piece of paper and a ballpoint pen. (I'm not telling you where to shop, but you can get a whole notebook at Rite Aid for 79 cents.

The bank robber thought of nearly everything. When he entered the M&T Bank in Linthicum on Jan. 3, he warned the clerk not to include any dye packs with the money, according to police charging documents filed in Anne Arundel County District Court. He told employees not to trigger any alarms, and he brought his own white plastic bag for the money. But he didn't have a blank piece of paper. So he penned his demands on the back of a business card for a finance company he used, according to the documents, and made off with about $41,000.

A 27-year-old man was charged last night with sexually assaulting a female motorist whom he allegedly picked up on the side of an Anne Arundel County highway after her car rolled down an embankment Tuesday morning. Jason S. Dinsmore, 27, of the 8000 block of Abbey Court in Pasadena, was arrested in Gambrills about 8 p.m. State police said they filed more than a dozen sexual assault charges, including two counts of second-degree rape, against him. Trooper Cindy Brown, a state police spokeswoman, said a woman was returning home from a Monday night Super Bowl victory party when her Ford Explorer overturned on an embankment along southbound Interstate 97 near Aviation Boulevard about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

County Executive Janet S. Owens ordered construction to resume on a controversial road extension after the Board of Appeals threw out a challenge by the project's opponents. By a 4-2 vote, the board held Monday night that opponents waited too long to contest a grading permit for a $6.8 million, half-mile extension of Admiral Cochrane Drive outside Annapolis. The county says the extension will reduce traffic by linking busy Riva Road and Route 2. But nearby residents say it will damage the environment and spur excessive development.

Among the many Baltimore treasures preserved at the Maryland Historical Society, visitors will find a painting and a piece of paper. The piece of paper, along with the star-spangled banner it celebrates, is an American icon. It bears the immortal words of a Georgetown lawyer bursting with patriotic pride. The painting, Defense of Baltimore, Assembling of the Troops, gets much less attention. It is the work of an unschooled Irish immigrant, a Baltimore house painter. A large landscape, it has a hint of Grandma Moses, but its subject is dramatic, even sweeping.

Confront the threat from radical Islam It's amazing that the liberal Democratic talking points about how President Bush's policies have created more terrorists and fomented hatred toward the United States seem to be gaining currency ("Bush frames touchy topics as winners for Republicans," Aug. 22). Of course, this spurious point of view conveniently omits the fact that the single most devastating attack against us in our history was plotted and planned well before the Bush administration ever existed.

WE WERE A challenging class. Our reputation preceded us. In first and second grade, we frustrated and tested the skills of our teachers. We were a group of ragtag kids from a working-class neighborhood. We would rather play than read. We would rather talk than solve math problems. We were told that we were a bad class with little ability. We acted the part. Twenty-three children began together in first grade, and two more boys who failed second grade joined our class. On our first day of third grade, we were a class of 25 children of little promise.

Parents, teachers, relatives and friends do it all the time. The grown-ups look at the young adolescents in their lives, the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders struggling with who they are and what they want to be, and they say, If only I knew what they were thinking. Many of the kids, no doubt, have a question of their own. Why dont they listen? Those questions are getting some answers in an unlikely confluence of poetry, art and mass transportation. The vehicle is called Words on Wheels, a project just beginning its second year.

As the Senate considers passage tonight of legislation that would require the state's new electronic voting machines to produce paper records of cast ballots, bill opponents warn that a paper trail could jeopardize the validity of future elections and violate the secrecy of ballots cast by blind voters. Those who support the bill say that upgrading the state's 16,000 touch-screen voting machines to print paper receipts would boost public confidence in the system, which experts hired by the state found is susceptible to vote-switching.
