Floodwaters from the rain-swollen Susquehanna River have flushed 30-foot trees, gnarled clumps of branches, road barricades and old tires into the upper Chesapeake Bay--a flotilla of debris that is alarming boaters and environmental activists. The U.S. Coast Guard is broadcasting warnings three times a day, cautioning boaters to be on the lookout in the northern end of the bay. Most of the debris, which could damage boats and smash into piers and docks, was unleashed by the heavy rains accompanying the remnants of Hurricane Ivan.

An important Baltimore shipping artery has been blocked after an accident at the eastern mouth of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The Bay Titan, a 115-foot-long coastal tugboat, capsized Friday while turning into the canal from the Delaware River. The vessel is expected to block the 450-foot-wide channel until it can be removed with a crane. A member of its crew is missing and feared dead. The 19-mile sea-level canal, which links the upper Chesapeake Bay with the Delaware River, cuts 300 miles from a trip between Philadelphia and Baltimore.

North East of Cecil County worked hard to shut down Aberdeen's Robbie Jackson last night. The Indians often triple-teamed the 7-foot senior center and held him to two points. But they couldn't stop the rest of the Eagles. Marlon Jenifer scored a season-best 21 points, Kashif Brown added 16 and Devron Galloway had 12 as No. 9 Aberdeen rolled to an 85-42 victory in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship game at Harford Tech. Aberdeen (18-4) also won the UCBAC championship last year in the conference's first season.

NORTH EAST -- Early in the 1960s, Eleanore Benjamin recalls, she and her husband, Herb, plopped down $8,000 for a boxy building on Main Street, painted their name on a shingle and declared themselves open for business.Not every town is clamoring for a business where residents can stop for a bucket of minnows and a haircut, but that is exactly what they created. And despite a couple of crises -- fishing bans and an era of longer hair -- Herb's Tackle Shop has survived.But now the Benjamins are facing something they fear they cannot overcome.

After her team beat Edgewood, 48-45, yesterday in the championship game of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, Aberdeen senior guard Tameka McDonald kept focusing on the big picture, but couldn't help but enjoy what the Eagles had just accomplished. McDonald and the 19th-ranked Eagles happily posed for pictures at C. Milton Wright, celebrating their status as the first-ever UCBAC champion in girls basketball. The Eagles, who have made two consecutive trips to the Class 2A state semifinals before losing, hope a similar celebration ensues next month in the state championships, but McDonald said last night's title will do for now. "I am so happy that we are the first team to win this," said McDonald, who scored a team-high 13 points to go along with six rebounds and six steals.

Jeff Lill is a popular man lately, as captain of the J.C. Widener, one of the state's few ice breakers. After leaving its Annapolis harbor at 8:30 Wednesday morning, the Widener spent the day criss-crossing the waters off Anne Arundel County - beckoned for help from the creeks of the Severn River to government research buoys in the Chesapeake Bay. It cleared paths for a sea trial from an Annapolis marina, a waterman in search of rockfish on the...

With each passing day, the creeks and rivers of the Chesapeake Bay are filling with windowpanes of ice, beautiful to look at but capable of slicing through the hull of a boat with deadly precision. Several weeks of teeth-chattering cold that triggered a massive fish kill, stranded duck hunters on an ice-choked island off Baltimore County and contributed to Maryland's first boating fatality also have put the state's ice-breaking fleet on standby to begin the great push back. After a fast start to the ice-breaking season in December, sheets of frozen water are again starting to knit together in tributary shallows.
