The girl who prosecutors say was the source of jealousy that spurred an Ellicott City teen-ager to poison his friend with cyanide testified yesterday at his murder trial, painting a complex picture of teen-age love, kisses and envy. During the second day of testimony in Ryan T. Furlough's trial in Howard Circuit Court, Caroline Smith told jurors she and the youth kissed while watching the movie Happy Gilmore at Furlough's house one day toward the end of their junior year. After that, their friendship grew more complicated.

A state licensing board has indefinitely suspended a Catonsville dentist who was accused by an employee of being so high on cocaine that he didn't react after jabbing himself with a needle while working inside patients' mouths, records show. Under an order issued last month, the state Board of Dental Examiners summarily suspended the license of Charles P. Franz, 41, noting regulations that prohibit a dentist from practicing while under the influence of drugs. The board ordered him to immediately turn in his credentials.

The Preakness may be Baltimore's best horse race, but for a lot of people it's also Baltimore's best excuse to party. To some that means beer and chips in the Pimlico infield. To others, though, it's Crab Louis on Belgian endive and red pepper bisque en croute at the Paolo Gucci Triple Crown Ball.We can't all attend the Maryland Jockey Club's celebration at the National Aquarium or partake of an extravagant luncheon buffet at one of the corporate tents on the big day. But the organizers and caterers involved with the high end of the Preakness festivities are willing to share their menus and some of their recipes with us. Feel free to borrow from them for your own Preakness party.

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.

When Baltimore church officials released the long, detailed list last month, naming 56 priests accused of molesting children, the toll appeared greatest for a century-old parish in Catonsville that has been a bedrock in the region's Catholic community. Of the priests named by the Baltimore Archdiocese, six had served at St. Mark Church - the greatest number with ties to a single parish. The list of the accused brought the church scandal that erupted in Boston more than eight months ago uncomfortably close for a community so close-knit and so enduring that some church members refer to their home not as Catonsville, but as St. Mark's parish.

When patients are in the throes of a heart attack, there's no question that stents save lives. But for heart patients with few symptoms and less than severe artery blockage, whether to use a stent is a question with no clear-cut answer, say cardiologists. In fact, these days some heart experts say the mesh metal tubes used to keep narrowed or weakened arteries propped open are overused for blockages that can be treated just as well with medicine, a healthy diet and exercise. A recent internal review of heart patients at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson found 369 patients received the coronary implants unnecessarily.

WHEN IT comes to news reporting, the old city-room edict is always: first, get the story; and second, get it right. When the writer gets it wrong, it's a mess. It gets the reader who knows better all upset, confuses history and puts an error in the record books. I know; I've had my share of errors.Recently, the New York Times, which is known for its excellence, included what some of us around Baltimore consider a glaring error. On Sunday, July 9, the Times published an article about Baltimore in its travel section, called "What's Doing in Baltimore," by writer Melinda Henneberger.

After sitting through two painful trials for the man accused of shooting his daughter in the head and killing her, Joe Nueslein was relieved. "I just thank God this is all over with," he said that November evening in 1995 when former Baltimore police Sgt. James A. Kulbicki was convicted of first-degree murder for the second time. "And that I'll never have to go through that again." He couldn't have been more wrong. The Nueslein family found themselves back in court last year as a new team of defense attorneys challenged just about every piece of evidence that tied Kulbicki to the killing of Gina Nueslein, 22, a convenience-store clerk with whom the married man had an affair and a child.

Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita A. Levy wrote an apology letter to his wife before wrapping a plastic bag around his head Monday and pumping it with helium, killing himself in the basement of his Towson-area home, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation. Along with the letter, he left behind multiple hard drives, computers and servers that police have seized and are scrutinizing, police said. More than 300 of Levy's current and former patients have contacted officers, fearing that they are pictured in images he is accused of secretly capturing, Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Wednesday.

NEW ORLEANS -- After voters put two of Louisiana's most controversial politicians since Huey Long into a Nov. 16 runoff for governor, Louisianians were left asking themselves: How did it happen?How did they end up with a choice for governor between David Duke and Edwin Edwards?"What a disaster!" said Raul Bencomo, a lawyer in New Orleans. "The only thing that would be worse is if Duke wins."Political analysts don't think that will happen. But, as Duke was only too eager to point out yesterday, the political establishment has consistently underestimated his appeal.
