Gardeners get a fresh start every year. Glossy catalogs full of new plants, ideas and inspiration fill the mailbox in January, and before you know it, you're making lists, plans and decisions. The New Year is upon us, but it's really never too late to make New Year's resolutions, and gardening resolutions are the kind you won't regret. A gardener's resolutions don't have to involve giving anything up. When you resolve to make your garden more beautiful, the changes don't have to be expensive or difficult or involve plants with names you can't pronounce.

A Hyattsville man who was legally drunk when he crashed his Jeep into the back of a car on a Route 100 ramp in Howard County this summer was convicted yesterday of auto manslaughter. Marcos P.S. Amaya, 34, also was found guilty of 17 other alcohol and driving offenses related to the crash July 13 that killed Nadine Younis, 4, and seriously injured her two sisters, Nouran, 6, and Yara, 19 months. Howard Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure, who tried the case, noted Amaya's high blood-alcohol reading - 0.19 - as well as evidence that he had been driving erratically for several miles and that he apparently never braked to try to avoid the Younis family's car. Amaya's actions showed "a disregard to the safety of others," Leasure said.

LANDOVER -- Rod Strickland was so upset after being traded to the Washington Bullets two months ago that he didn't bother to report for his physical.In fact, up until a week ago, there was some doubt whether the talented -- and often moody -- point guard would report to training camp without a new contract.But Strickland will be at camp next week, old contract in hand, thanks to some recent conversations with general manager Wes Unseld. And yesterday, in his first meeting with the local media, the Bullets' latest point guard savior was doing his best at a little damage control.
