Joe Breschi and Jeff Tambroni haven't actually spoken in the past couple of months, communicating only through a couple of phone messages, filled with words of encouragement and support. But the respective coaches of Ohio State and Cornell, the first two teams to earn their conference's automatic bids to the NCAA tournament, both talked about an emotional -- and painful -- bond that has tied the programs together. A little more than two months ago, Michael Breschi, the 3-year-old son of the Buckeyes' coach, was hit by a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot of his preschool in Clintonville, Ohio.

Rejecting an "evil twin" defense, an angry Baltimore County judge gave the supposedly "good" twin life without parole yesterday for murdering a 15-year-old runaway last June after the brothers raped and sodomized her."You are a dangerous human being," Circuit Judge James T. Smith Jr. told Tyrone Page, 36, at times raising his voice and pounding to emphasize his points.Page and his identical twin brother, Jerome, lived off and on with their mother in the 2100 block of Monumental Ave. in Halethorpe, not far from the victim's home in the 2000 block of Putnam Ave.Amanda Lee Hall, a 10th-grader at Lansdowne High School, ran away from home last June 1, after a dispute over a boyfriend.

We would have remembered him if it was just the songwriting or just the dancing or just the eyebrow-raising fashion. But Michael Jackson dominated each of those artistic avenues - and so many others. You see his influence in every Justin Timberlake who sweats to perfect a signature move. Every movie-esque flourish in a video. Every African-American artist who sits atop the pop charts. His legacy is as enduring as it is multi-faceted. 1. Sound When America first met Jackson, he was a lovable, pint-sized pre-teen with a puffy Afro and an electric voice.

This article is based on Montana and North Carolina court records, hearing transcripts, interviews, newspaper archives, and Charles Kuralt's books "A Life on the Road," "On the Road With Charles Kuralt" and "Charles Kuralt's America."On his sickbed in New York in the summer of 1997, Charles Kuralt thought of Montana, a place he had loved for a great many years for its natural wonders, far away from his life in the city.Down by a riverside, he built a log cabin. It reminded him of his native North Carolina, but most of all it gave him a place to disappear.

Ryan Minor took a few steps out of the Orioles' dugout last night, turned to look inside, then jogged slowly to third base. Perhaps he was checking to make sure no one was following him.Eleven days had passed since Minor's promotion from Double-A, and already he was treading on sacred ground. He hoped only to keep from falling.Without warning, Minor took the position that had belonged exclusively to Cal Ripken for the past two seasons, ending a consecutive-games streak that stretched to eternity.

You're going to have to forgive Super Saver's owners, his trainer and his jockey if they happen to do a successful rain dance tonight in preparation for the 135th running of the Preakness. Because while bad weather might ruin your Pimlico plans, it's unlikely to ruin Super Saver's. We don't know a lot about the Kentucky Derby winner just yet, but we do know this: He loves running in the mud. And not many horses do. It's unclear, though, whether the forecast will play into his hands the way it did two weeks ago in Louisville, Ky., when 1.3 inches of rain fell on race day and played a big factor in his 21/2-length victory.

Jerome Page, a paroled murderer, showed no surprise yesterday when a Baltimore County jury convicted him in less than an hour of the rape, sodomy and murder of a 15-year-old Halethorpe runaway last June.Judge Barbara Kerr Howe warned friends and relatives of the victim, Amanda Lee Hall, against making any outburst. Helen Hall, the victim's mother, who often wept or left the courtroom during the sometimes graphic testimony, said of the verdict, "No matter what they do, it's not going to bring her back."

Why does the water heater in my new house have another small tank hanging off the side of the pipe above it? That is an expansion tank installed on the water supply pipe to the water heater. Its purpose is to deal with thermal expansion of water as it heats up in the water heater - to prevent water pressure from getting too high. If water pressure gets high enough it can damage valves in plumbing fixtures, joints in supply pipes and even the water heater. Thermal expansion always occurs in water heaters.

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- To see where the life of Clarence Thomas might have ended up, one must journey to where it began, out on the tidal flats of the Moon River just south of town, where marsh grasses bend gently to breezes that smell faintly of brine and mud.Here at a small community called Pinpoint, little has changed from June 1948 when the man President Bush has nominated for the Supreme Court was born. The shack of a crab house where his mother picked meat for a nickel a pound still stands by the murky water.

The relationship between Michael Oher and Sean Tuohy Jr. has - like Tuohy himself - grown dramatically in the 10 years since Oher was brought by Tuohy's family into their home in the leafy suburbs of Memphis. If those early years became the genesis of a best-selling book and a hit movie that documented Oher's transformation into a college football star at Mississippi and the No. 1 pick of the Ravens in 2009, this year takes the brothers' relationship to another place. In Baltimore, call it The Other Side.

Carefully arranged on a bed of ice, the fish on the counter at Capitol Seafood in Jessup looked like a still-life composition.Gold-striped wild rockfish, their lips sporting blue plastic tags, lay in the upper left corner. Just below them were the smaller, dish-faced hybrid rocks raised on farms. To the right, the bright color of several red snappers contrasted with the plain brown of the flounder below.Framed by these lesser species, two large, silver-sided creatures formed the composition's centerpiece.

I have a 6-year-old son in good health who has an interesting problem.For the last year or so, one of his outer ears sometimes becomes very hot to the touch and bright red. This can happen when he is resting, bouncing around or even eating. It doesn't seem to have any pattern, except that it is only one ear at a time. He doesn't have a cold or an ear infection when this happens.Someone said it is blood pressure, so I am concerned. I have asked doctors in the past who brush it off. Please let me know what you think.
