Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that, assuming all goes well with lefty Randy Wolf in his workout today and he receives medical clearance, Wolf will be activated onto the 25-man roster Friday. The 36-year-old left-hander will then be eligible to be placed on the Orioles' playoff roster, if necessary. Wolf is expected to join the bullpen - though he has made just five relief appearances in his 14 season career spanning 371 games. He hasn't pitched since Aug. 17, when he allowed five runs in seven innings against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Invited over to help celebrate his son's first birthday, 25-year-old Hari P. Close III had been a no-show. But overnight Tuesday, Close crept into the home where his son lived and climbed into bed with the boy's mother, records show. On Wednesday morning, 1-year-old Dalyire Damion McFadden was missing, and he was later found by police wrapped in a deflated air mattress in the basement. He had been stabbed in the neck, police say. Close, who was an aspiring male model, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in his son's death and was being held without bond.

WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. - Should U.S. forces attack Iraq, "Caveman" is ready to pack up his brown-bag lunch - stuffed with an Italian hoagie and trail mix - and grab his air mattress and sleeping bag. "Caveman" is the call sign of Air Force Lt. Col. Scott Vander Hamm, who pilots the radar-evading, bat-winged B-2 Spirit bomber, the first warplane the Pentagon will send into harm's way to penetrate Iraqi air defenses and command centers if President Bush...

I HAVE BEEN HAVING a little trouble this week stopping at traffic lights and dialing the telephone. These are symptoms of a guy who is trying to re-enter the hurly-burly world of work after spending two weeks in the lazing-around world of vacation. I have no idea how widespread these re-entry problems are, but I do know a lot of people go on vacation during August and grumble when they return to work.While driving to work on my first day back from vacation, I stopped for a red light on Madison Street.

City Hall isn't glowing purple this year. Last year's plum-colored bulbs have apparently been mothballed. As the Ravens lose and lose and then go ahead and lose a little more, Baltimore, it seems, has recovered quite fully from last year's football fever. Yet, on a well-trafficked corner southeast of downtown, the Ravens spirit of at least one stout-hearted fan hasn't gone dark - in fact, he's not coming down from a Canton roof until the team rewards his positivity with a win. As a man who lives, breathes and dreams Baltimore football, Ron Stack considers this literally lofty campaign no less than his duty, his sacred calling, really, as a sports-minded Baltimorean.

QUEENSTOWN -- Five years ago, Robert W. Kearns walked away from $30 million offered by Ford. Last week, he simply shrugged when he won $21 million from Chrysler.What Mr. Kearns wishes he had is the time he's lost.For 32 years, Mr. Kearns has relentlessly pursued automakers worldwide to get proper credit for inventing the intermittent windshield wiper. In the process, he saw his marriage collapse, suffered a nervous breakdown and consumed every waking moment steeped in lawsuits.Some -- even his daughter -- have questioned his sanity.

Hari P. Close III was convicted of first-degree murder Thursday for fatally stabbing his 1-year-old son and hiding the body in the home of the boy's mother, the Baltimore state's attorney's office said. Close, 26, was sentenced to life in prison with all but 50 years suspended. James L. Rhodes, Close's attorney, said his client maintained his innocence and entered an Alford plea, which acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence to gain a conviction. "It was a sad case all around," Rhodes said.

Tickets to the February Rolling Stones concert at the 1st Mariner Arena sold out less than two hours after sales started yesterday morning, concert promoters said. "They pretty much blew right through them," said Bobby Holland, director of marketing for Cellar Door Concerts in Washington. The show is the Stones' first concert in Baltimore in nearly four decades. Some Internet users reported, however, that tickets for the 12,000-seat venue were unavailable minutes after sales began at 10 a.m. Holland said there was nothing wrong with the system.
