Aelred Geis tried to make the world better for birds and people, in that order. He studied ways to coax birds back into urban areas, helped persuade Jim Rouse to set aside 1,000 acres of prime Howard County real estate for a nature preserve, turned his Clarksville farm into a wildlife sanctuary and not only built a better bird feeder, but also filled it with superior seed that he developed. Geis could be loud and confrontational with a touch of arrogance when the circumstances warranted it, his friends fondly remember.

The Department of Natural Resources has sent its proposals for webless migratory bird and early resident Canada goose hunting seasons to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for approval.Seasons for dove, snipe and rails are essentially the same as last year, but the woodcock season would be shortened from 45 to 30 days.According to the DNR, the decision to shorten the woodcock season was made in response to declining numbers of woodcock over the past several years. The decline is attributed to loss or degradation of habitat and poor annual hatches.

ASHBURN, Va. - When the Washington Redskins take the field in their final preseason game tonight, wide receiver Patrick Woodcock is well aware of the task ahead of him. The second-year receiver is one of seven wide-outs on a Redskins roster that seems set with six - Laveranues Coles, Rod Gardner, Taylor Jacobs, Cliff Russell, Patrick Johnson and Darnerien McCants (Arundel). Woodcock's play tonight (8 o'clock, chs. 4, 24) against the Jaguars in Jacksonville could determine whether the Washington coaches decide to keep six or seven wide receivers.

Open a book on woodcock hunting, and probably the writer will recall an episode along a stretch of creek bottom in Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin or Minnesota. But woodcock hunting in Central Maryland deserves a chapter.Al Geis of Clarksville is a guy who knows much of the woodcock, a small, secretive bird that feeds on worms and insects at night and lies low during the day. The woodcock, in fact, is Geis' game bird of choice."I love to hunt grouse and woodcock in combination," said Geis, 62, an expert on migratory game birds who retired from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after more than 30 years of service.

Robert H. Kittleman and Del. Robert L. Flanagan -- who have represented District 14B for a combined 28 years.But Woodcock tried to use the experience of his rivals against them, suggesting that they are more interested in "political posturing, gamesmanship and division" than in representing the district that includes Ellicott City, western Howard and Columbia's River Hill village.

WASHINGTON -- The government needs $225 million and a range of new powers to protect Americans from unsafe drug imports, federal health officials said yesterday under tough questioning by lawmakers investigating a contaminated blood thinner from China. "We currently have a crisis and an opportunity to make real change," Deborah M. Autor, director of the Food and Drug Administration's drug compliance office, said at a House oversight subcommittee hearing. Autor joined Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's drug division, in asking Congress to give the agency the power to inspect foreign companies that ship drugs to the U.S., stop imports at the border if they come from factories not inspected and require American drug makers to police their overseas suppliers.

WASHINGTON --A contaminated blood thinner from China suspected in dozens of U.S. deaths has now become a worldwide public health problem, with 10 other countries detecting the often-toxic ingredient, federal investigators said yesterday. The compound, which in tests mimics the real blood thinner heparin but costs less to make, may have been added deliberately somewhere along a production chain that began on farms in China, beyond the reach of U.S. regulators. Food and Drug Administration officials also announced a major scientific breakthrough in their attempt to understand how patients got sick from the contaminated heparin.

The Food and Drug Administration is now making sure that all supplies of Heparin and its key ingredient are tested for the mysterious contaminant, agency officials told reporters yesterday. Manufacturers and importers will have to conduct the sophisticated tests or government inspectors will do so before the products can be distributed in the United States.

WASHINGTON -- Circumventing normal practices, the nation's top drug regulator seized control of a request to sell the "morning-after" pill without a prescription and delayed the drug's approval, two senior Food and Drug Administration officials told lawyers suing the agency over the decision. Lester M. Crawford, then acting commissioner of the FDA, intervened in early 2005 as the agency's staff was preparing to authorize over-the-counter sales to women 17 years and older, the two FDA officials said in sworn depositions last month.
