WASHINGTON - U.S. regulators ruled yesterday that mobile-telephone providers' bills must list government fees separately. Customers had complained that companies hid their charges in catch-all categories. The Federal Communications Commission told carriers such as Cingular Wireless LLC and Verizon Wireless to give subscribers more details on regulatory fees, including those for transferring numbers to another carrier. The FCC also shifted oversight of the rule to the federal government from the states, drawing criticism from both Democratic commissioners.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Devil Rays sprinted from their dugout before the start of last night's game against the Orioles, creating a noticeable buzz in the stands. Or maybe it was the air conditioning. Enthusiasm was at a serious low for the opener of this series, failing to match the drama that unfolded. Only 11,124 showed up at Tropicana Field, and most of them bolted for the exits long before the Orioles took a 6-5 victory in 14 innings on a suicide squeeze that proved as gutsy as their refusal to lose.
