Randy recently collected his first flame on the Internet, when he entered a newsgroup discussion about foundation plantings and whether they lead to water problems in basements.One newsgroupie wrote that he had been told by a house inspector not to put foundation plants (flowers, bushes or shrubs) close to his house "because they retain water and would aggravate an already worrisome wet-basement problem."Randy wrote back, "I think foundation plantings are OK, as long as they don't restrict the flow of water from the house."

The matchup between the Orioles and Yankees this weekend is one that Basement Bertha could appreciate.The only way the Orioles can escape from last place is to win the first three games of Johnny Oates' big-league managerial career. To understand the enormity of that task, consider that the Orioles not only haven't been able to sweep a series this year, they have been able to win only one.Since beating Texas twice in three games April 12-14, the Orioles have gone winless in 11 consecutive series (0-9-2)

MOSCOW -- It's springtime, tulips are blooming, the air is crisp and Muscovites are arming themselves with their vacuum cleaners for battle with the demons of the night -- mosquitoes.These aren't just any mosquitoes. These "basement mosquitoes," known formally as Culex pipiens pallens, breed in the depths of Moscow's high-rise apartment buildings and buzz their way into the lives of Muscovites through ventilation shafts.They are particularly insidious because they have adapted -- "MUTATED!"

For Taneytown residents Sharon and Dale Kline, city officials can't formulate an emergency sewer plan fast enough.The Klines have had as much as 5 to 6 inches of sewage in their basement on West Baltimore Street three times this year, and every storm cloud is a reminder of what they say is the city's foot-dragging.Last week, officials from the Storm Water Management Administration of the Maryland Department of the Environment toured the city's problem sites and ordered Taneytown officials to develop a written emergency plan to handle sewage overflows.
