BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The jury weighing fraud charges against HealthSouth Corp. founder Richard M. Scrushy had to start its work from scratch after the presiding judge replaced a juror for health reasons on the 17th day of deliberations. U.S. District Judge Karon O. Bowdre said she preferred to seat an alternate rather than proceed with 11 jurors at the trial, which began Jan. 25. Jurors started deliberations May 19 and sent several notes indicating they were divided on the conspiracy charge at the heart of a 36-count indictment accusing Scrushy of inflating profit by $2.7 billion.

— Anne Arundel County Executive Laura A. Neuman and the head of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation sparred Tuesday over the storm water fees enacted this year on homeowners and businesses in Maryland's most populous localities. Testifying at a Senate subcommittee hearing presided over by Sen. Ben Cardin, Neuman reiterated her opposition to the state-mandated fee, which she and other critics deride as a "rain tax. " The storm water fee requirement imposed by state lawmakers on Baltimore and the state's nine largest counties generated substantial debate this spring, as all faced a July 1 deadline for imposing some kind of charge on property owners to cover costs of reducing polluted runoff.

Beginning today, the road to recovery gets serious for the Ravens.Since moving from Cleveland, the Ravens have conducted their first draft, run two minicamps and implemented offensive and defensive systems under a new coaching staff.The coaches and players have talked about starting fresh in a city that clamored for the return of the NFL since 1984, and about the advantages those conditions should bring to a team that was battered as much psychologically as it was on the field during last year's 5-11 disaster.

Egyptian army tanks are rumbling through the streets of Cairo in an ominous show of force that leaves little doubt that the country's fledgling experiment in democracy has been seriously disrupted. The whereabouts of President Mohamed Morsi, the country's first democratically elected leader, are unknown, and the generals directing what the president's advisors have condemned as a "military coup" have yet to fully explain their intentions. The political situation is still very much in flux.

The end of the slump is in sight, for the far-sighted. No one loves this shrinking federal surplus better than the Democrats. It's their ticket back to The Show. It is essential to tow cars parked on outer residential throughfares of the city so suburbanites can get to downtown desks quicker. The good thing about baseball is that every season starts anew. The bad side of football is ditto.

Tell me, Sigmund, since you have plumbed the mind:Unwittingly, have I loosed upon mankindThe poisoned mushroom's lethal cloudWhich covers the earth like doomsday's shroud?Was the pursuit of knowledge so precious a goalAs to be bought at the cost of man's soul?Did I upon the altar of self-delusionUltimately create the grand illusionThat man could take energy, mass and matterAnd not devise a means to shatterAll that nature has carefully wrought,All the dreams that angels sought?I have no desire to belittle your fears,Yet, Albert, I've discovered throughout the years,It's not the bomb that is man's woe,But the hand on the trigger: That is the foe.This to you I most solemnly vouch,That every day from troubled couchI confirm anew man's unconscious state,Until less and less I ascribe to fate.

It is interesting how the Anne Arundel County Board of Education has made County Executive John G. Gary look like the bad guy for signing off on new development in Crofton, where Arundel High supposedly will have 1,000 students too many by the year 2000. Board members act as if the county sprung this on them from out of the blue. But these developers were seeking waivers from the county's adequate facilities regulations, which forbid building in areas with overcrowded schools, long before Mr. Gary was elected.

WHEN AARON COPLAND was a young man, he studied music under the composer Rubin Goldmark. Because Goldmark's heroes were Beethoven, Wagner and Fuchs, wrote one biographer, the independent Copland became enamored of composers like Mussorgsky, Debussy, Ravel and Scriabin.There was something always fresh and individual about Aaron Copland, who died yesterday of pneumonia at a hospital in Tarrytown, N.Y., not far from his Peekskill home. He had recently suffered two strokes. He was a man many 20th century musicians contend was America's finest composer, classical or otherwise.

Trial balloons can have a down side even when they're headed up.You could ask Kurt L. Schmoke. After saying he might run for governor in 1994, the 43-year-old mayor almost immediately found himself on the defensive.A poll showed him with double the statewide name recognition of his likely rivals. He had a good ratio of positive-to-negative perceptions among those who knew him. Some commentators saw great potential.But others scoffed."There have been some pointed comments that have made me a take a critical look at myself," he said during an interview yesterday.

The last time Donald Halverson was on a Liberty ship, he was heading across the Atlantic Ocean, a fresh-faced draftee who would spend the next 21/2 years fighting his way across Germany, France, Italy and North Africa during World War II. A more recent trip, a leisurely six-hour sail down the Chesapeake Bay on the refurbished Liberty ship John W. Brown, a floating museum that has been plying the waters around Baltimore since 1991, proved a lot more...

SARASOTA, Fla. - -Janet Marie Smith was instrumental in the design of Camden Yards. She oversaw the improvements at Fenway Park in Boston and figured prominently in the transformation of Centennial Olympic Stadium into Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves. But her latest challenge - the $31.2 million renovation of the Orioles' spring training home at Ed Smith Stadium and Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota - has broken new ground for the renowned architect and urban planner. "It's the first time in our career we are ordering steel the same day we are ordering concession equipment," said Smith, the Orioles' vice president of planning and development.

After 14 seasons in Fort Lauderdale, the Orioles are moving their spring training operation to Sarasota, on the west coast of Florida. The move will upgrade their game and practice facilities, reduce travel time to other Grapefruit League cities and put the club's major and minor league operations in the same city. Stadium: Ed Smith Stadium. Built in 1989, it seats 7,500. The Orioles are planning a $31 million renovation project, due to start once the team heads north after 2010 spring training ends, that will add more seating and modernize the stadium.

The Fantasticks , off-Broadway's longest-running musical (1960-2002). Its simple boy-girl story is a twist on Romeo and Juliet, with their scheming mothers pretending to be feuding neighbors who oppose their children's having a romantic relationship to ensure that they'll actually have one. The innocent teenagers fall in love to provide a moonlit happy ending in Act 1 and find problems when the sun rises in Act 2. Instead of getting married, they go...

The flag is back. Two days after a retired firefighter kicked up a fuss about there being no Stars and Stripes outside a Fells Point post office, a maintenance worker hung a flag yesterday from one of the building's two wooden doors - the first time in two years that the colors have been displayed there. "I think it's wonderful," Bernard Muller, the former firefighter, said when told of the new banner. "All I wanted them to do was put the doggone flag up. Not having a flag there was a slap in the face to the boys who are dying every day."

AUGUSTA, Ga.-- --Ayear earlier, Tiger Woods - cut like an action hero, cast as a folk hero - sat on the same podium and answered a similar question. At the time, he had won two majors in a row. Had the possibility of winning four straight even crossed his mind? "No, I'm thinking about trying to place my ball around this golf course," he said. "That's about it." At the time, he would just as soon talk about Nike's overseas factories as a Grand Slam or a Tiger Slam or even a Denny's All-American Slam.

He said he learned about hardship and belief and overcoming barriers. I told you it was Glenn Davis.And, now, he wants to start anew -- as an Oriole.

An era in American music has died with Miles Davis. He didn'tinvent modern jazz, but he was there at the beginning and by the end of a long and brilliant career, he had come to symbolize it.Miles succeeded through a combination -- virtually unique among jazzmen -- of talent, careerism, longevity and an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time. And yet the beautiful trumpet player was a flawed human being.Miles had a diabolical personality. Some of his admirers in print, and there were many, attributed it to shyness, but he possessed a monumental ego and a hostile and arrogant persona.

City Hall has never been short on noisy debate or loud personalities, but for nearly two decades the building itself has been muted - its large bell pealing meekly and only once a day. But after nearly $28,000 in repairs, Lord Baltimore, the 119-year-old bell atop City Hall, will begin ringing every hour - as it did for nearly a century - and with more bravado and volume than before, city officials said yesterday. "For a long time there's been an acknowledgment that this has been one of those pieces of City Hall that really needed to be taken care of," said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the Department of Public Works.

During Jerry Molyneaux's 20 years as coach of the track programs at Western, the Doves captured three state titles and 16 Baltimore City championships outdoors, and every city title indoors going back to the early '90s. Now, Molyneaux is starting with a clean slate and in a new place. Molyneaux left Western to take over as athletic director at Northwestern this fall. He'll be coaching the girls and trying to revitalize the school's long-dormant track and field program, while hoping to give a spark to the entire Northwestern athletic scene.
