The Sails of St. Mary's
St. Mary's College in southern Maryland is known as the state's honor college where some of the brightest are educated. But it's also home to national sailing champions, who this year are once again trying to sail their way to the top.
The Low Points
Water always finds its way to the low points – gulleys and gutters, stormdrains and streams. It carries along with it all of the chemicals that pollute Maryland's waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. But there are new signs that polluted stormwater entering the bay unchecked may be numbered.
Blue Crab Blues
They were once plentiful. But now, Blue Crab populations are down in the face of rising pollution that has turned the crab's underwater Chesapeake Bay habitat into a hostile environment. Maryland Department of Natural Resources scientists are on the case of the Blue Crabs, looking into why there are less of them, and how to solve the problems facing this Chesapeake icon.
