Nine people were injured yesterday afternoon when a Trailways bus carrying more than two dozen passengers crashed into the rear of a tractor-trailer on U.S. 50 in Wye Mills, state police said. The bus, bound from Salisbury to Baltimore and driven by Larry Jackson, 53, of Salisbury, was westbound on U.S. 50 about 4:15 p.m. when the rig in front of him slowed for a right turn onto Scott Town Road, said Tfc. John Geisler of the Centreville Barracks. The bus struck the rear of the 18-wheeler, causing serious damage to the front of the bus and injuring Jackson, Geisler said.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is considering eliminating the black bear hunt quota and instead opening the season for a pre-determined number of days. The change is intended to help hunters plan more effectively and would eliminate the need for them to call a hotline each night to determine the status of the hunt. Last October, for the first time since the hunt was revived in 2004 after a 51-year hiatus, hunters who spent parts of six days in Garrett and Allegany counties failed to meet the quota set by the DNR's Wildlife and Heritage Service.

One evening last week, three of us drifted across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to the Eastern Shore for a couple of hours of fishing. The word from Jim Phillips and his son, Justin, was that the action would be fast -- and it was -- even if the quarry was small.As soon as the engine was shut down in the parking lot at Wye Mills Community Lake, Justin was out of the car and down to the edge of a weedy tailrace below the small dam."Dad! Bluegills! Thousands of them!" was the sixth grader's immediate report.

WYE MILLS -- A leading conservation group is calling on six Eastern Shore counties to buy more land to protect it from sprawling development that is gobbling up farm fields -- growth that could bring 160,000 new residents in the next quarter-century. In a report released yesterday, the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy urged the Upper Shore counties of Dorchester, Talbot, Caroline, Queen Anne's, Kent and Cecil to redouble efforts to preserve more than 578,000 acres, about 900 square miles of farm and forest land.

WYE MILLS -- It used to be that Sue Riggleman knew nearly everybody here, the maybe 150 to 200 people in this Colonial-era village just a mile or so from the beach-bound tourists and commuters zooming along U.S. 50. Riggleman, 70, has spent 31 years behind the counter of the Wye Mills Market. But with newcomers moving into the big houses rising on the former soybean fields at the edge of the unincorporated hamlet, remembering names has gotten a whole lot harder. Besides, Riggleman says, most of the new arrivals don't shop at the store.

WYE MILLS - Nearly 18 months after Maryland's massive Wye Oak crashed to the ground during a severe thunderstorm, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. said yesterday that pieces of the tree's carefully preserved remains will live anew as icons shared by every jurisdiction. Under a plan worked out by an 18-member committee last year, 8,000 leaves from the 460-year-old white oak will be gilded and sold for $40 each. The sale will raise money to improve the Wye Oak State Park here, including a pavilion to cover the largest section of the 30-ton trunk or bole.
