It was windy enough that Henry Sloss could barely get the lure into the water because it kept blowing back toward him when he cast it. When it did hit the water, though, it eventually came back out along with a 24.25-inch pickerel. That fish was the longest caught in the first month of the Coastal Conservation Association's 3rd Annual Pickerel Championship, which began December 15 and will conclude March 15. Sloss, 72, is an English professor who fishes as a hobby and considers himself to be an amateur.

Eighty years ago, Baltimore investor William F. Cochran designed a summer resort on the banks of the Severn River and called it Sherwood Forest.Today, a more appropriate name for the 450-acre wooded community might be Shangri-la.Like the fabled Tibetan paradise, Sherwood Forest is secluded, offers a life of pleasures, and enforces a rigid set of rules designed to protect the community's standard of living.Most of the houses must be painted dark green; cats are forbidden and dogs must be housed in kennels during the summer months; for sale signs are prohibited and the sound of hammer and saw must not be heard between June 22 and Labor Day.Sherwood Forest is not for everyone, but the 341 families who live in the cottage-like homes like it that way.Residents have their own marina, a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, a community hall with bowling alleys, a community store and post office, a full-day summer program for the kids, and regular community dances.

Just over the hill is a small archery target range.Barth spends a lot of summer evenings out there perfecting his shots and advising others how to perfect theirs.The 52-year-old archery guru has instructed archers from 3 1/2 to 73 years old.Archers from as far away as the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina flock to Barth's place for pointers.

On the southern banks of Round Bay on the Severn River, just a few miles northwest of downtown Annapolis, lies the deeply wooded community of Sherwood Forest. Named for the woodland home of Robin Hood and his merry men, the rambling gated community has provided a pristine playground for generations of youthful explorers whose parents live in the "forest," as residents call it. They also learn to swim and sail and become naturalists as they explore native flora and fauna just outside their front doors.

Annapolis attorney Eileen Powers confirmed that she had not filed for the injunction but refused to comment further.

Tree-planting project honors military There were no flags. No military bands. No speeches by politicians. Instead, there were 500 pitch pine saplings, dozens of shovels and a single uniformed Boy Scout hollering out orders. Over the whine of a chain saw, dozens of muddy children, parents and grandparents splashed through a swampy forest near Annapolis yesterday to commemorate Veterans Day by planting a living shrine to the men and women who have served in the nation's wars. At 11 seconds past 11:11 a.m. -- the time commemorating the official end of fighting in World War I on Nov. 11, 1918 -- the planting ceased and the group of about 80 gathered by the stream for a moment of silence.

Sherwood Forest, the Virginia plantation that once belonged to President John Tyler, is owned by his grandson and wife. It is an unusual place. As visitors walk to the house from the parking lot, along a short path through a wooded area, they must first pass a leaf-littered pet cemetery. Two more or less equal rows of little wooden crosses inscribed with names like Wink, Changa, KitKat and Beau mark small graves, some of which possess the added embellishment of concrete lawn ornaments -- a sleeping kitten here, a duck there, a dog holding a basket in his mouth at the end of one row. At the small memorial garden for beloved animals, members of the public turn right and continue along the path through a wide expanse of lawn shaded with large trees.
