On a steep hillside up the street from an auto repair shop, a group of McDaniel College students are piecing together long-forgotten lives. The students pull back brambles, trim branches and press flour into tombstones carved a century or more ago. They are trying to uncover the details of the lives of some of the early African-American residents of this small Frederick County town. "They were forgotten, but we're bringing their names back," said junior Emoff Amofa, 21, who is taking professor Rick Smith's January session class on tracing family histories.

Catonsville's Fourth of July parade is bound to be an impressive event Monday afternoon, with 17 marching bands, Lone Ranger look-alikes, wailing firetrucks, color guards, 25 floats and a renowned local waitress drifting by in a long red gown. But before that, unfolding as you read this, goes the spectacle of the chairs. To be more precise, the chairs, blankets, tarps, ropes, twine, steel cable, yellow "Caution" tape, bricks, stones and, at last count, two seated mannequins — one torso only, one whole figure — intended to reserve parade viewing spots.

Texans defensive players were unanimous in their excitement that Wade Phillips canceled his interview with Tampa Bay and withdrew from consideration for the Buccaneers' head-coaching job. Phillips, former Cowboys head coach, was supposed to interview Friday night in Houston with a contingent from the Buccaneers. He was a long shot to get the job, anyway, and by withdrawing as a candidate, he's guaranteed of returning for a second season. "Hey, we're selfish, and we're excited about him backing out of the interview," inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans said.
