"He's not here to accept it," the Cockeysville resident said. "So as his mother, and I'm still his mother, I need to get it for him. " Last August, Roswell Friend — Dulaney High graduate, college athlete, selfless friend, soon-to-be Temple alum — went for a run over a Philadelphia bridge and never came back.

PERHAPS THE Air Force should blame itself for persistent tales over the past 50 years that extraterrestrials have dropped in on Earth from time to time. Until now, attempts to destroy such myths were feeble.It was as if someone decided anything that focused American minds on interplanetary travel was good. Especially when you're trying to justify expensive U.S. space exploration efforts that, back then, paled in comparison to what the Soviets were doing.Maybe it served our government to see the growing popularity of B-grade science fiction films such as the classic, "The Day the Earth Stood Still," and later television series such as "Lost in Space" and the "Star Trek" sagas.
