Overhead soared a B-52. On the ground, the seven members of the firing party marched to their places. In the distance, drums could be heard, and then the entire band, leading a horse-drawn caisson carrying a flag-draped casket to its final destination. Traveling across the globe and through time, Technical Sgt. Charles A. Bode came home Friday from the Second World War. The Highlandtown man was 23 on Nov. 20, 1943, when he vanished with 10 fellow crew members during a B-24 bomber mission over the Pacific.

General Greene, a former leader at Aberdeen Proving Ground who was shot to death last week in Afghanistan, was laid to rest during a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. His wife, retired Col. Sue Myers, and their son, Lt. Matthew J. Greene, saluted his flag-draped coffin as a howitzer fired a 13-gun salute. The burial followed a private memorial service attended by 800 mourners, many in uniform, at Joint Base Myers-Henderson Hall.

DALLAS - As the Orioles open a three-game series against the Texas Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday, the club is optimistic that outfielder Nelson Cruz can return to the starting lineup after he was hit by a pitch Sunday in Houston. Cruz has a bruise on the outside edge of his left hand. He was feeling much better 24 hours after getting hit, and the swelling in his hand went down enough that he was able to hold a bat. One club official said that Cruz was confident he would be able to play tonight.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- If not for Washington's train system and the vision of community leaders in the 1970s, Arlington might be nothing more than a former suburb swallowed by sprawl. Instead, it is the envy of its Northern Virginia neighbors, with the lowest property tax rate and highest office occupancy in the region. It has sought-after neighborhoods and an economy so sound it has lowered taxes twice in two years. Less than 20 miles away, Loudoun County, once a sleepy farming community, is reacting to a wave of development that took it by surprise in the mid-1990s and has forced its property tax rate to nearly double in 10 years.

The Yankees know it. The question is how it plays in the minds of the players on both clubs and how that might affect the outcome of this best-of-five opening round of the playoffs.

OLD PLANTATION CREEK, Va. -- It must have been a sight -- three stories of brick and mortar towering above the marshes and flat, sandy fields here where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic. In the mid-1670s, a time when even the well-to-do were scratching to make a stake in the Virginia Colony, wealthy planter and tobacco merchant John Custis II outdid his fellow gentry, building a home historians say was the "most magnificent in the Chesapeake" on an isolated spot near the southern tip of Virginia's Eastern Shore.
