When a reporter gets an exclusive, it's called a scoop. But what do you call it when a lobbyist gets to a key  opportunity to influence legislators that all of his colleagues have missed? Whatever you call it, that's what W. Minor Carter got late Easter Sunday when he was the only lobbyist who managed to get into a locked House office building for the opportunity to talk with members of House leadership about the most heavily lobbied legislation of the year: casino gambling. Carter represents the National Harbor development in Prince George's County, where Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller wants to locate a new luxury casino.

With debris from last week's deluge still littering the Inner Harbor, a big new weapon is poised to take on the rafts of floating trash that routinely gross out Baltimore's waterfront visitors and residents alike. A "water wheel" designed to scoop up 50,000 pounds of flotsam every day debuts Thursday in the channel between Piers 5 and 6, where the Jones Falls empties into the Northwest Branch of the Patapsco River. Its backers hope it will make a serious dent in the torrent of garbage that's flushed into the harbor whenever it rains, besmirching the city's watery showcase.

The sound would loudly and routinely resonate from the Bel Air sideline, a declaration of good fortune for the school's boys lacrosse team: "Yanneee!" While none of the Bobcats had any idea what it meant, they all knew what was coming next: a chest bump of epic proportion. That's how Bel Air coach Scoop Kelly celebrated a big goal, his passion for lacrosse and for his beloved program on full display in a sudden burst of excitement. But the big goals that would have called for Kelly's sideline celebration haven't been the same this season.

Have you scooped some poop today? State officials are encouraging people to do it "every stinkin' time. " It's not exactly dinner-table conversation, but the Maryland Department of the Environment says that up to 40 percent of American pet owners don't clean up after their animals. And besides being rude and disgusting, that harms the Chesapeake Bay. Dog waste, the department says, makes up 24 percent of the bacteria that pollutes urban and suburban waterways (anyone for a swim?

Already this year, a cameraman for TMZ.com was allegedly throttled by a disgruntled Woody Harrelson, and Paris Hilton gave the celebrity gossip Web site a weepy - and exclusive - interview about how its content hurt her feelings. Now another luminary may have a bone to pick with the Web site: On Friday, Mel Gibson's arrest on suspicion of drunken driving and his subsequent anti-Semitic tirade were reported there. The story has since mushroomed online and in print, and there is speculation that the Walt Disney Co. will drop distribution of Gibson's new movie, Apocalypto, because of it. But stars - and the print publications that cover them - are going to have to get used to TMZ.com and its cousins, which are making over the realm of celebrity gossip.

Scoop Kelly graduated from Fallston, but he spent the last nine seasons coaching Bel Air boys lacrosse. So, when the Bobcats hosted the Cougars on Friday, the teams played in memory of the former coach, who died suddenly in February. No. 12 Bel Air did its best to honor that memory. Senior attackman Calvin Fleagle scored four goals to lead the Bobcats past Fallston, 7-4, in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake Division game. "This game always meant extra to him," Bel Air head coach Chuck Muir said.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. It took one viewing of Class of 2015 guard prospect Malik Ellison to see his versatile skill set and potential, but it was the third viewing of Ellison this year in which he was finally able to put his entire game together. The junior wing from Life Center Academy (N.J.) had a big game against Maryland commit Jared Nickens and Westtown on Saturday as he exploded for a very efficient 22 points.

Police departments around the country are collecting DNA in largely unregulated databases, The New York Times reported today, providing a broader look at a practice The Baltimore Sun revealed in Maryland earlier this year. The largest collections of DNA records are held at the state and federal levels, but local agencies are also free to collect their own samples and keep their own records, which are not always subject to the same rules. New York City, for example, has a database of 11,000 suspects and Orange County, Calif., has 90,000 records on file, according to the Times . Baltimore police had samples from more than 2,000 suspects and more than 3,000 homicide victims, The Sun reported in February .  The state's DNA law, which allows the collection of DNA from people arrested in connection with serious crimes and was recently upheld by the Supreme Court , makes no reference to the local databases.

The Phantom of Fleet Street meets Jack the Ripper in Woody Allen's farce Scoop. Of course, Allen so terribly condescends to his heroine, Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johansson), that she has to be told who Jack the Ripper was and wouldn't know Fleet Street from Carnaby Street, even though she's a journalism student. This left-foot-forward effort is Allen's latest failed attempt to regain comic form. In Scoop, the specter of a renowned British journalist, Joe Strombel (Ian McShane), gets the scoop of his life, or afterlife, while Death ferries him to his Final Destination.

You say Rover wants to roam, but your postage-stamp backyard isn't cutting it? Clearly, you and your pooch need to take advantage of the nearest friendly neighborhood dog park. Not that every neighborhood has one, or that they're all created equal. Some technically aren't "dog parks" at all. But people bring their dogs there anyway. The classic dog park is a fenced-in area where dogs and their people are welcome, but leashes are strictly verboten. Some are urban oases, some are within larger parks, and some are even on the beach, where sticks tossed into the water don't stand a chance.
