Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Damonte Dodd and Roddy Peters officially joined the Maryland basketball team this week, stepping foot on campus for the first time as students and participating in organized summer workouts. Melo Trimble , a 2014 guard from Bishop O'Connell, will join them the following year. In the not-so-distant past, though, some - and potentially all - of them might not have ever committed to Maryland.

Your recent article about Sen. Robert A. Zirkin's dispute with Columbia Gas unfairly portrayed the senator's efforts to convince the company to reroute its proposed underground high-pressure transmission pipeline ("Senator, gas company clash over pipeline," March 3). The article implies that Senator Zirkin is leading this effort solely for personal gain. In fact, he and his family are not directly affected by the proposed new route. But he has given voice to the concerns of those of us who will be. Instead of concentrating on the issues at hand, your article diverges into matters that are irrelevant to the fundamental question: Why does Columbia Gas need another pipeline and why, except for a recent change that excludes Gun Powder State Park, is expansion of the current right-of-way the only viable alternative being considered?

Charles Campbell's commentary is a concise and well presented argument for a reconsideration of President Obama's refusal to approve the Keystone XL pipeline and for a revamping of our energy policies ("D.C.'s Keystone Kops," Jan. 30). The article should be read by all of out political leaders, and I'm speaking from the point of view of an Obama supporter and liberal-leaning Independent. Dianne Salmon

The recent editorial on the Keystone XL pipeline shows a preponderance of politically correct rhetoric and very little research on the subject ("Say no to Keystone" Jan 29). There are reasons to question the tar sands projects but they are not included. A quick Google search will show that the U.S. is laced with pipelines and that Canadian tar sands crude has been moving into the U.S. by pipeline since the 1960s with no major incidents. Far from entering the existing pipelines as a dirty, viscous liquid - which, incidentally wouldn't flow in pipelines - the bitumen extracted is upgraded on site in high-temperature, high-pressure hydrotreating processes to remove nitrogen and sulfur to produce a high-quality light synthetic crude.

When Richard D. Kinder left Enron Corp. 10 years ago, he walked away with a pipeline business that didn't fit into the flashy company's vision for building the energy trader of the future. Yesterday, the company that Kinder and his partners built from Enron's castoffs said it would go private in a buyout valued at $14.6 billion. If approved by shareholders, the acquisition of Houston-based Kinder Morgan Inc. by an investment group led by Kinder and other senior executives would be the third-biggest leveraged buyout ever.

This, that and the other:It's safe to say a pipeline has been established between the softball programs at Mount Hebron High School and nearby Catonsville Community College. This year, four former Hebron players played major roles in Catonsville's 13-4 finish.Dawn Thomas, The Howard County Sun's Player of the Year last spring, made immediate impact by winning the team's MVP award. She led Catonsville with a .368 average and was second with 15 RBI. On the mound, she was 12-4 with a 2.71 ERA and 75 strikeouts in 111 innings.

Dear Mr. Azrael: Before I purchased my home, it was an undeveloped lot in a residential neighborhood that was owned by the builder. A neighbor with property on the side and rear of my yard buried a PVC pipeline through what is now my back yard and common property of the homeowners' association. The pipe ran from his sump pump to the storm drain directly behind my lot. This pipeline was not disclosed at settlement and it encroaches on at least 20 feet of our property. It broke once and he fixed it. That neighbor is now moving and we want to know what our rights are in this situation.

Bethlehem Steel Corp. has signed a contract to supply as much as 600,000 tons of steel pipe to a proposed oil and gas pipeline across Turkey and former Soviet republics. The contract could be a boon to the company's Sparrows Point plant since it might supply the bulk of the steel plate used to make the pipes.But before that order can be filled, the pipeline company must gain right-of-way approvals from several countries, including some that have been at war with each other.The nation's No. 2 steelmaker yesterday said that it signed a contract with Oil Capital Ltd. Inc. to provide pipe for a 3,000-mile pipeline that would stretch from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean.

A water line in Elkridge that already has ruptured three times presents "a serious safety hazard" for area residents because it is defective and could explode with the force of a bomb, Howard County maintains in a lawsuit filed yesterday.The two-mile-long pipeline, installed in the mid-1970s, transmits water under pressure of 150 pounds per square inch along portions of southbound Interstate 95, Elibank Road and Montgomery Road."Investigation of the pipe has revealed life-threatening design and manufacturing defects," the county's suit maintained.

MOSCOW -- A gas pipeline supplying the only fuel to Armenia exploded again yesterday, forcing the besieged republic to shiver through a fierce snowstorm without heat or light.The Armenian government said the 4 a.m. blast tore a 6-foot gap in the newly repaired pipeline in the same mountainous region of neighboring Georgia where the pipe blew up Jan. 23. Saboteurs trying to tighten a wartime blockade of Armenia were suspected in both acts.Reacting to the January incident, Armenian forces backed by warplanes and heavy artillery launched a major offensive last Friday in their undeclared war against Azerbaijan, seizing 11 settlements in the disputed mountain enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh.
