Volunteers at the Susquehannock Environmental Center in Bel Air wondered for years whether the rest of the world ever would catch up to them.Born in a high school ecology club, Susquehannock is among the oldest continuously operating recycling centers in the nation. It just celebrated its 20th anniversary.When a science teacher named Bob Chance and his eco-club began accepting recyclables from Harford countians in January 1972, they were considered tree-huggers, the counter-culture flakes.

I am a member of the team that worked with University of Maryland University College President Javier Miyares and Board Chair Mark Gerencser to propose a plan to reorganize UMUC to meet the rapidly evolving changes in the way higher education is delivered worldwide ( "Transforming UMUC," July 30). In order to meet these difficult and complex challenges, exceptional leadership is essential, and Mr. Miyares and Mr. Gerencser have met those challenges with open and transparent leadership that has resulted in the formation of an exceptional plan moving forward.

George W. Collins, a pioneering WMAR-TV broadcaster who earlier had been editor-in-chief of the Afro-American newspaper and covered the civil rights movement and political corruption in Maryland, died Thursday of renal failure at Union Memorial Hospital.

Chandler Crews sat on a bench outside of Sinai Hospital in Baltimore one recent day, put her feet on the ground and grinned. Sitting this way was impossible for the 20-year-old from Arkansas just a few years ago because she was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism in which limbs don't grow in proportion with the torso. With bowed legs and a 3-foot-10-inch stature, she said she was unable to do many such "normal" things. She couldn't drive the family car or go for much of a walk without back and joint pain or even wash her hands in most sinks.

Reigning national champion Duke owns a slight 4-3 edge in its series with Denver, but this is the first time the teams will meet in the NCAA tournament. The Pioneers are making their third Final Four appearance in four years, while the Blue Devils earned a spot in the national semifinals for the eighth consecutive season and 10th time in program history. Fifth-seeded Denver (16-2) is the hottest team in the postseason, having won 13 consecutive games since a 12-10 loss to Penn on March 1. But the team is seeking its first trip to the NCAA title game.

Denver goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus are polar opposites. LaPlante is a native of Fort Collins, Colo. He's a junior communications major known for his happy-go-lucky personality, and he's left-handed. Faus, a senior, is from Lakeville, Conn. He majors in history, which reflects his more serious demeanor, and he's right-handed. Though so much divides them off the field, come game time none of it matters. They're equals. LaPlante starts each game and plays the entire first half.

Denver coach Bill Tierney has a tongue-in-cheek answer when asked about the team's subpar showing on faceoffs with top-seeded Duke and senior extraordinaire Brendan Fowler awaiting on Saturday. “We're going to prepare the exact same way we prepared for Rutgers, North Carolina and Drexel,” Tierney said Tuesday morning during a conference call before the semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. “We're going to assume that we're going to lose every faceoff and then go from there.” Clearly, that's not how Tierney truly feels about the fifth-seeded Pioneers' faceoff unit, which has won just 47.3 percent (194-of-410)

DUNDALK -- Anne Arundel Community College's roller-coaster ride through the Region XX baseball tournament came to a slow, grinding halt yesterday at Dundalk Community College.The Pioneers (32-10) ran out of steam in their 11-8 loss to champion Essex Community College. They had rebounded from a 5-0 deficit to score eight unanswered runs, only to see their lead vanish in the final two innings."We should have put 'em away when we had the chance to.
