Lonnie Liggins knows he can't take anything for granted in the sport of football. It was six years ago when the running back was named The Baltimore Sun's Baltimore County Player of the Year, rushing for 1,321 yards and 23 touchdowns at Hereford. But that was five schools and three knee surgeries ago. Now the 24-year-old is getting one last chance to resurrect a once-promising career at Division III Salisbury. And he's planning to make the most of it. "I used to be the guy who'd get all the touchdowns," Liggins said.

I am bearing down on 60 years and am a lifelong resident of Maryland. I will add that I have never voted for a Republican gubernatorial candidate. The time might be appropriate for a major sea change in our beleaguered state. I am a bit skeptical about Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, for fear that his election would simply mean more of the same Democratic folly, whose mantra seems to be "why not tax it"? The only inherent difference between the governor and the lieutenant governor is that Mr. Brown was "minding the store" while our absentee governor was traipsing all over the map, assessing the nation's pulse for a new democratic candidate for the United States presidency.

Saying climate change is already underway, a panel of scientists is urging Maryland officials to plan to accommodate rising seas of up to 2 feet along the state's shoreline in the next 40 years — and perhaps nearly 6 feet by the end of the century. In a report to be released Wednesday and commissioned by Gov. Martin O'Malley, the group of 21 scientists from Maryland, Virginia and other mid-Atlantic states said recent, more sophisticated studies suggest that sea level is rising faster than forecast just five years ago. With 3,100 miles of bay and ocean coastline, Maryland is vulnerable to a rising sea level, experts say. The state has 450 facilities and about 400 miles of roads and highways in low-lying areas that could experience flooding aggravated by climate change, according to state officials.

Salisbury coach Jim Nestor has been named the National Division III Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association. Nestor led the Sea Gulls to a 23-0 record in 2013 and earned the program's second national title with a 12-5 victory against Trinity (Conn.). Salisbury was rarely tested during the regular season, never trailing at halftime and winning all 16 regular-season games by no fewer than six goals. Nestor's award is the third time he has been honored as National Coach of the Year (2005, 2010)

Ryan Clarke's senior campaign at Salisbury ended prematurely after he suffered a ruptured spleen in the fourth game of 2013 and was shut down for the rest of the year after a brief appearance in the fifth contest. The midfielder, who registered 35 goals and 29 assists in 2012 and was an early candidate for the Tewaaraton Award, could use his final year of eligibility in 2014, but that is not a certainty. “That's yet to be determined,” coach Jim Berkman said. “Ryan has eligibility to come back, but no decision has been made on whether he's going to do that or not do that.
