On a bitterly cold January weekend three years ago, a small group of environmental activists huddled at the United Methodist Church Camp on Chalk Point in Shady Side. The agenda was as bleak as the setting.The fledgling organization -- South Arundel Citizens for Responsible Development, or SACReD, campaigning to stop a developer from building 152 luxury houses on a 477-acre parcel known as Franklin Point, had been dealt two bad blows. The developer had lodged a $50 million libel lawsuit against them and the state Board of Public Works had approved the project despite the nearly certain environmental damage it would cause.

Regarding William Smith's recent letter stating that an embryo is not a person, and that only religious "wing-nuts" believe otherwise, if you take a cell from a human embryo and perform a DNA test on it the test will say it is human, not that it is "almost human" ("More anti-abortion 'wing-nut' nonsense," Feb. 2). This scientific truth did not exist 6,000 years ago when the first words of Genesis were passed onto future generations, and was not known in 1973, when the Supreme Court declared abortion legal and unrestricted.

Six and counting. That's the number of companies that will no longer advertise during ABC's new program "Nothing Sacred," as a result of a pressure campaign orchestrated by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. In the bloody arena where religious values clash with entertainment values, the New York-based Catholic League is racking up some impressive victories.Since July, the Catholic League's media-savvy president William Donohue has been engaged in a jihad against "Nothing Sacred," which airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. He characterizes the plot -- featuring a young priest at times bedeviled by church dogma -- as "pure political propaganda" that exemplifies Hollywood's anti-religious bias and insults loyal Catholics.

Please join me in not buying a darn thing this Thanksgiving Day. Have an extra piece of pie, take a nap, watch a little football, drink too much, fight with your in-laws. Just don't shop. "Black Friday creep," as they called it when it began a couple of years ago, has crept all the way into Thanksgiving Day, with at least one retailer opening before dawn Thursday and several others staying open straight through until Friday at midnight. There is a finite amount of Christmas money out there each year, and stores are racing to the front of the line to grab yours.

HOW AWFUL that the place sacred to the most people in the world, itself a symbol of peace, is also very real -- rocks and traffic and swarms of humanity -- and the reason peace in the Middle East still eludes those who search hardest together in good faith for it. The banner headline across Page One of the Washington Post's home edition yesterday, "Mideast Summit Fails Over Jerusalem," may yet prove prescient and come true in the end. Jerusalem has...

A Washington jury ruled in favor of South County activists yesterday, deciding that though some complaints in SACReD's letter about a millionaire real estate developer were false, they were not libelous.SACReD is an acronym for South Arundel Citizens for Responsible Development Inc.The verdict ends a 2 1/2 -week trial in District of Columbia Superior Court, in which Dominic F. Antonelli, his Pointe Properties Inc. and another Pointe officer sought $50.2 million from the group, which has stymied efforts to develop 477 acres on the Shady Side peninsula.

A day after achieving the program's 10-win season since 1983, the Towson football team found another reward with the No. 7 seed and a first-round bye in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs Sunday morning. The Tigers (10-2) will not play at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson until Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. They will await the winner of Saturday's first-round game between Sacred Heart (10-2) and Fordham (11-1). Coach Rob Ambrose said he felt confident that if Towson could defeat Colonial Athletic Association rival James Madison on Saturday -- as the team did with a 28-17 victory -- the NCAA selection committee would reward the Tigers.

The greatest words any American ever said were spoken by a gaunt, war-haunted man in a tiny Pennsylvania college town 150 years ago Tuesday. The celebrated orator Edward Everett had spoken first, a gusty address that began with a nod toward "this serene sky, overlooking these broad fields now reposing from the labors of the waning year," and wheezed to a close two hours later with a reference to "the glorious annals of our common country....

If Tom Gravante has his way - and as the head coach, he probably will - Mount St. Mary's will go with its third different starting goalkeeper in Saturday's Northeast Conference opener against Sacred Heart. Freshman Frankie McCarthy is poised to open Saturday's home contest as the goalie. McCarthy would replace sophomore Adam Borgogelli, who made nine consecutive starts after freshman Will Rego opened the season against then-No. 3 Maryland. Borgogelli made the start in last Saturday's 10-8 loss to UMBC, but after he surrendered seven goals in the first half, McCarthy played the entire second half, allowing just three goals and making five saves.

There is a Maryland foundation whose purpose is to fund sacred places, green spaces that celebrate nature by creating verdant calm refuges tucked away from urban chaos. It seems CA proposes to do the opposite.  Our Symphony Woods is already a sacred place. So we have a responsibility to tread lightly, with small footprints, when we make it a public place. The last plan to create walkways through the trees, "Columbia's Central Park with a fountain," seemed to be an unobtrusive way to enjoy SW's exquisite trees.

As many as 240 AmeriCorps members will relocate to East Baltimore's Graceland Park neighborhood in the coming months, as the domestic version of the Peace Corps establishes an urban campus, the first of its kind. The classrooms at the former Sacred Heart of Mary School will be transformed into dormitories that will house the National Civilian Community Corps, an AmeriCorps unit that deploys teams of 18- to 24-year-olds to work with community groups and individuals in schools and parks as well as disaster areas.

Like many people I know, I am planning on voting against Question 6 this November, the amendment to Maryland law that would fundamentally change the definition of marriage in our state. I am planning on doing so because I believe marriage is a special relationship that biology, human history and our identities as man or woman tell us is reserved for one man and one woman. I believe this without animosity or hatred, but instead with a desire to protect that sacred institution in which I was raised, and in which I now live out my calling as husband and father.

Standing on the Morgan State sideline, running back Travis Davidson couldn't bring himself to watch Sacred Heart's Chris Rogers attempt the game-winning field goal in the third overtime of Saturday's season opener. "I'm very superstitious," Davidson said. "I feel like when I watch the game, bad stuff happens, so I had my head down. " It didn't take long for the senior to snap back to attention, as teammate Lamar Bynum broke through the line to block the low kick. Minutes later, the Bears' Ervin Gonzalez lined up on the left hash mark and nailed a 20-yarder of his own, giving host Morgan State a 30-27 win in four overtimes, marking the longest game in school history.

There's no nice way to put it for Mount St. Mary's, which must defeat Sacred Heart this Saturday at home and Wagner next Saturday on the road to finish in fourth place in the Northeast Conference and qualify for the league tournament. It's a humbling scenario for the Mountaineers, who won the inaugural tournament championship last year, but it's the situation created by Saturday's 17-14 loss to Robert Morris, which dropped Mount St. Mary's to 0-3 in the Northeast Conference. Coach Tom Gravante said Tuesday morning that the players are aware of the must-win scenario facing them.
