Now that Gov. Hogan and the General Assembly have declared a compromise over how to regulate bay-polluting phosphorus found in chicken manure, we look at what can be done with the excess manure.

Then, today is Maryland Day, marking the landing in 1634 of the first English settlers in Maryland, at St. Clement's Island on the Potomac River. We learn the story of the southern Maryland Indians who met them more than 380 years ago.

Plus, Edgar Allen Poe gets interactive. A new theatrical piece hosted by the Maryland Historical Society brings to life Poe’s real-life loved ones and fictional characters.
