With bridge construction and a large truck parking lot next to Barracudas in Locust Point, you probably wouldn't think "tropical paradise" when you first step through the door. But co-owner Paul Cuda's namesake, Cuda Punch, will bring your taste buds as close as they can get to Tahiti without booking a flight or cruise. The Cuda Punch is fully loaded with fruit. A base of their secret rum infusion, containing large amounts of pineapple, oranges and other citrusy goodness, lays the groundwork for this tropical libation, topped off with fresh-squeezed orange juice, club soda and a splash of fruit punch for color.

Jack Pardee isn't surprised. When he coached the Birmingham Stallions in the World Football League more than 20 years ago, near-capacity crowds would come to Legion Field to watch them.The city has not embraced the Canadian Football League's Barracudas -- the fourth professional football team in 25 years to grace Birmingham -- in quite the same way. Yet, given the silence in the Barracudas' ticket offices three months ago, they have recovered remarkably during their expansion season.Birmingham entered the season having sold barely 2,500 season tickets.

For people who think there's no cultural divide in this country, consider the treatment of two women much in the news in 2008. The first is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. A woman from humble roots and with a blue-collar life story, she worked with her steelworker and professional-fisherman husband to provide a life for their large family. She got involved in the PTA. She became mayor of her small town, then rose, by dint of her dedication and almost naive fearlessness, to the job of governor.

Sourcefire Inc. rejected a counteroffer from a California anti-spam firm that wants to acquire the struggling Columbia security-software company. The company said yesterday that Barracuda Networks Inc.'s sweetened $8.25-a-share bid - 10 percent higher than a previous proposal - is not in the best interest of the company and shareholders. The new proposal is worth $206 million. Sourcefire shares rose 45 cents, or 5.89 percent, to close at $8.09 yesterday. Sourcefire is best known for selling software designed to work with its open-source intrusion prevention technology, Snort.

Sourcefire Inc., a Columbia security-software company that has struggled with losses since going public last year, said yesterday that it has rejected a $186 million acquisition proposal from a California anti-spam firm. In a terse new release, the company said its board "believes that the proposal substantially undervalues Sourcefire." Officials declined to comment beyond the release. The unsolicited $7.50-a-share offer from Barracuda Networks Inc. is 13 percent above Sourcefire's closing price on May 23, the last full day of trading before Barracuda proposed the deal.

The "Barracuda" is back. Jane F. Barrett, who earned the piscine predator's nickname in 21 years as a prosecutor of environmental and white-collar criminals in Maryland, has returned to the state after a decade in private law practice in Washington. This time, she'll be schooling a new generation of advocates. She's taking over as director of the environmental law clinic at the University of Maryland School of Law, her alma mater, where she'll run what she calls the biggest pro bono environmental law firm in the state.

Nearly a year ago, two Maryland state troopers were injured and several vehicles were damaged when the driver of a stolen tractor-trailer cab led police on a lengthy, high-speed chase north of Baltimore on Interstate 95. The chase, which endangered motorists and ended with the driver ramming two troopers' vehicles, could have been thwarted quickly with a "Barracuda," a tire deflation device for large commercial vehicles. State troopers demonstrated this new tool yesterday in a mock vehicle pursuit at the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commission's Driver Training Facility in Sykesville.

The first shock wave hit two weeks ago in Memphis, when only 4,371 fans showed up at the Liberty Bowl to watch the Mad Dogs edge Shreveport.That was a prelude to the hit Birmingham absorbed at the turnstiles on Sunday, when only 5,289 sat in Legion Field to watch the Barracudas blow out Ottawa.Those marked the smallest crowds to see a Canadian Football League game this season, with each low point coming in a U.S. expansion city. The huge number of no-shows calls into further question whether three-down football can compete with the NFL and major college ball, even in traditional football-mad areas.
