During a packed town hall meeting at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore Tuesday, campus police said as many as 30 people may have witnessed the death of student Edmond A. St. Clair over the weekend and asked students with information to come forward. About 3,000 students, faculty and staff gathered in the Hytche Athletic Center on the Princess Anne campus for the meeting, where school officials and campus police attempted to allay concerns about security. The interim police chief, Kenneth Collins, told the audience he was aware of "rumors" about possible suspects in the stabbing and said: "If they have any validity, this investigation may very well be over.

PRINCESS ANNE -- Being ranked last on the list of leading sports cities in America came as a cultural shock, a literary knockdown pitch that has upset the normally tranquil pace of this quaint and quiet community on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where spectacular fields of corn stretch to infinity and even unannounced visitors from the big city are welcomed as if they're home folks.Princess Anne feels as if it took a belittling brush from The Sporting News, which history tells us is the nation's oldest publication dealing with fun, games and box scores.

When most people travel abroad, they fall in love with and buy little mementos to bring home - a sweater, a figurine, an "I fell for Niagara" shot glass. But when a Swiss couple visited friends on the Eastern Shore during a three-week American vacation in the fall of 1993, they fell in love with a house.A big, three-story house listed on the National Register of Historic Places that lay on the empty Mount Vernon road between Princess Anne and the town of Mount Vernon - in other words, a great big renovation project in just about the middle of nowhere.

New York City has its descending ball. Miami Beach has its giant orange. And Princess Anne has its stuffed muskrat. At midnight Saturday, the town of 2,400 people in Somerset County will become the latest in a line of Maryland communities — and scores of towns across the country — to embrace a growing tradition: dropping a locally significant if less than elegant object from a great height as a way of welcoming the new year. "The muskrat is a part of our heritage, and we wanted to drop something relevant to us," said Ben Adler, director of the Princess Anne Main Street Partnership, one of the brains behind the plan.

The Sporting News has released its annual list of the best sports cities in the United States, and for a second consecutive year, Baltimore ranked 29th on the list. Go ahead and blame it on the Blast not winning the MISL title. According to the publication , the rankings aren't solely based on winning championships (but they certainly help). For a 12-month span from summer 2010 to summer 2011, point values were assigned to categories such as win-loss records, postseason appearances, “applicable power ratings,” the number of teams and attendance.

There are 280 children in Frederick County enrolled in Head Start. To support the program the county spends $2.3 million and the federal government matches the county's contribution, for a total cost of $4.6 million to taxpayers. Long division is not my strong point, but that comes to $16,428.57 per kid if I'm not mistaken. Every study of Head Start shows there is no — zip, none, not an iota of — long-term learning advantage for kids enrolled in the program. Head Start is two things: an employment opportunity for a failed program and an expensive baby-sitting service.

— The motto of Somerset County, still visible on its official seal, is semper eadem , Latin for "always the same. " In many ways, the Eastern Shore county 120 miles southeast of Baltimore has lived up to the slogan. Long before anyone had heard of the pioneer who took office last week, the county's origins in the American plantation system created a booming farm economy — giving rise to a rural elite that has been slow to give up power. The county that would become a hub for boatmaking in the late 19th century and seafood through the middle of the 20th was the last county in Maryland in which a lynching took place and the last to integrate its schools.
