HERNDON, Va. -- The Washington Redskins and Desmond Howard now can compare trophies.The Redskins became the first Super Bowl champion to draft the Heisman Trophy winner yesterday when they made what coach Joe Gibbs called a "bold move" by making a deal to jump into the fourth spot in the draft.The Redskins, worried that the Green Bay Packers were going to draft Howard in the fifth spot, leapfrogged above them by dealing their two first-round picks -- sixth and 28th -- and their third-round choice (84th)

Brian Billick was an assistant public relations director for the San Francisco 49ers when they selected Joe Montana in the third round of the 1979 NFL draft. The reaction in the war room, Billick said, didn't come close to matching the Ravens' reaction Saturday night when they drafted quarterback Chris Redman in the third round. "It was just noise," Ravens director of college scouting Phil Savage recalled yesterday, laughing. Redman was the first player that Savage watched on tape last May after the Ravens failed to pick a quarterback -- and the last player that Savage watched Friday night on the eve of the draft.

(Clarification: Although the ONE foundation's $15 million in funding in 2008 is listed in tax documents as “contributions,” the organization does not solicit funding from the general public but from foundations and board members, according to ONE’s website and a statement from a spokeswoman.) Tonight, U2 bring their enormously successful 360 Tour to Baltimore, and if previous U2 shows are any guide (trust me, I've seen them 11 times), the show will feature not only the soaring anthems for which they are rightly known but also a healthy dose of promotion for the band's many charitable causes.

Lee Richardson is a pioneer of sorts in taking a new look at a very old energy source. The Wicomico County poultry farmer just finished installing a commercial-sized wood pellet stove to heat one of his chicken houses in Willards, east of Salisbury. When his next flock of chicks arrives from Perdue, Richardson will test how the wood-warmed birds fare compared with those raised in a neighboring house, which is heated by burning propane gas. "We're going to run it for a year and see what happens," Richardson said.

Just when everyone was starting to feel all warm and fuzzy about the opening of the regular season, reality crept into the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field late Friday afternoon. Left-hander Brian Matusz, who is widely regarded as the cornerstone of the club's pitching future, walked disconsolately to his locker and put his street clothes back on. Instead of getting ready to chart pitches in advance of Saturday night's scheduled start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he was getting ready to undergo an MRI to determine the cause of soreness beneath his left shoulder blade.

Be prepared to pull out your driver's license on your next visit to the dentist. And don't be surprised if a retailer asks for a birth date or mother's maiden name if it's giving you credit for your big-ticket purchase. They're just following federal rules to protect consumers from identity theft. Beginning next month, a wide range of businesses — auto dealers, cell phone companies, real estate agents, mortgage brokers, utilities and health care providers — must start complying with so-called "Red Flag Rules."

WASHINGTON -- The National Security Agency is facing significant budget shortfalls as the spy agency scrambles to respond to a mounting electricity crisis, modernize its technology, maintain current operations and add workspace, congressional and intelligence officials say. As a result, they say, the NSA has slowed hiring, pared back upgrades in information technology, delayed equipment purchases and shut offices. The agency's director, Lt. Gen. Keith B. Alexander, is seeking an increase of nearly $1 billion in supplemental spending for 2007 and a similar boost next year as the White House finalizes its 2008 budget, current and former intelligence officials say. The money crunch comes despite a doubling of the NSA's budget since the terrorist attacks of Sept.

Larry Bird retired yesterday, and his basketball headstone should read: "He expanded our imagination."That was his elemental appeal. It was the same with Magic Johnson. They made you understand that anything was possible on a basketball court.A point guard such as Magic could lead his team in rebounding and even play center if he had to. A big, rough forward such as Bird could pass and shoot three-pointers as deftly as the trickiest little guard.That could not really happen, could it? Yes, just watch Bird do it. Magic, too. (This is supposed to be just about Bird, but it is getting almost impossible to separate him from his friend and rival.

My oven has convection-roast and convection-bake settings. I understand convection is a heat-circulating fan, but the roast vs. baking part confuses me. What difference does it make to the oven if I leave the lid off a meat pan? In food language, roast and bake really aren't different. Both are done in an open pan, usually in an oven. We refer to cooking meats and vegetables in an open pan as roasting, while cakes, cookies and pies are baked. But convection, which uses fans to circulate air, is a different beast.

So far this year, 223 local TV stations have changed hands. This is the biggest wave of media consolidation ever - and it's all happening in small and mid-level markets, involving companies most people have never heard of. Leading this wave is Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group. Sinclair alone is behind seven deals this year, including a $985-million deal to buy nine stations from Allbritton Communications. But it's not alone; other media companies are also racing to gobble up stations.

When the Canadian Football League's Board of Governors meetings ended in Toronto yesterday, the league was down to 12 teams. The Memphis Mad Dogs had folded, and the imminent demise of the Birmingham Barracudas threatened to reduce the number to 11. CFL officials and the players have much to address in the coming weeks.League owners voted to lower the salary cap from $2.5 million to $2.3 million and to eliminate the marquee player designation that allows a franchise player's salary not to be counted against the cap.The CFL Players Association has to approve those changes, as well as any modifications in the most contentious rule facing the league: the import quota.

Prosecutors have launched an investigation into a complaint that more than 1,000 deeds for homes foreclosed upon in Maryland were improperly executed — the latest development suggesting widespread problems in the way foreclosures have been handled in the state. The complaint, filed last week by a paralegal formerly employed by the Shapiro & Burson law firm, lays out allegations that attorneys who were supposed to be signing deeds and key foreclosure paperwork for Maryland properties instead instructed others to falsify their signatures on the documents.

Sean Haire, known as Sean O'Haire in WCW and WWE, reportedly died Monday at age 43. Haire debuted in WCW in 2000, and he was immediately pushed as a future star. He was paired with the Natural Born Thrillers, a group of young, physically gifted wrestlers, and in the year before WCW folded, he won the tag team titles three times. Haire quickly gained attention from fans for both his strength and athleticism. For a wrestler who was billed at 6 feet 6 and 270 pounds, he could move like a cruiserweight, and hit what might be the best-looking Swanton Bomb in the history of the business.

The Titanic, doomed star of the new movie "Titanic" opening today, was a disaster for newspapers as well as for the 1,517 passengers and crew who died 85 years ago. Not until the Chicago Tribune's "Dewey Defeats Truman" in 1948 were headline writers more embarrassed.The ship hit an iceberg at 11: 40 p.m. Sunday, April 14, 1912. It sank less than three hours later, at 2: 20 a.m. Monday April 15.For almost a day after that, much of the Western world heard the iceberg part but not the sinking and deadly results.
