This is a report from juror No. 26. I was recently summoned to jury service for the first time in my life. While I have presided over 518 jury trials, this was my first time on the other side of the bench. They start early - 7:30 a.m. There is a lot of hurry up and wait. Those who are veterans understand clearly what that means. Exemptions: By law, there are a couple of ways off jury service. For example, if you are over 70, a member of the organized militia (the Maryland National Guard)

My three large rhubarb plants (6 years old) were a real disappointment this past spring and summer. The plants sent up seed-stalks in May, and then all I got were a few thin stalks to eat. What am I doing wrong?Sounds as if your plants are overcrowded. Rhubarb will bolt (produce a seed-stalk) when they are stressed in any way. Plants should be divided every four years. Cut them back to the crown (the base of the plant) and then split the crown into four pieces (very large plants could be divided into six to 10 pieces)

Annapolis has been giving in to angry citizens since the burning of the good ship Peggy Stewart for violating the tea boycott in 1774. Now a plan to polish the aging City Dock is about to go up in smoke, too. Mayor Josh Cohen has yielded to a group of fusty historic types who don't want to see a brick moved, merchants who fear competition and Edward Hartman, who holds the city hostage for two boat shows a year and doesn't want to lose a square foot...

PRINCETON, N.J. -- A New Jersey township's plan to reduce its deer population by capturing them in nets and firing a bolt into their skulls has provoked an outcry from animal rights advocates and some of the community's well-known artists and thinkers. The township, Princeton, has hired a private firm to kill the deer using the method, which opponents call cruel and inhumane. The opponents sponsored a rally at Palmer Square in Princeton featuring the singer Patti Smith and speakers such as the author Joyce Carol Oates and the ethicist Peter Singer.

How many astronauts does it take to unscrew a bolt? "Apparently, it takes three. Two outside and one inside," Pam Melroy, of mission control at Johnson Space Center in Houston, said yesterday. Melroy's jest was at the expense of astronauts from the space shuttle Atlantis, who were trying without much success to continue installing a new set of solar arrays during a spacewalk outside the International Space Station. After grunting and groaning in their bulky spacesuits, Steve MacLean and Dan Burbank, with astronaut Joe Tanner advising from inside the space station, had to return to a toolbox for a new wrench to pry loose the recalcitrant bolt.

Gaze at the sky on a stormy summer night and consider this: The lightning bolts streaking from the clouds may actually have gotten their start in outer space. That's one theory, anyway. It turns out that more than 250 years after Benjamin Franklin lofted his kite, scientists are still struggling to understand the basic physics behind this dazzling -- and occasionally deadly -- electrical display. "We know more about how a star explodes across the universe than we do about how lightning works," says Joseph Dwyer, who studies the phenomenon at the Florida Institute of Technology.

Shares of Ciena Corp. jumped 18 percent yesterday, hitting a new peak as Wall Street digested the news that the Linthicum-based telecommunications equipment company had far exceeded all Wall Street's profit expectations during its second quarter as a public company.Ciena bolted up $7.125 to $46 yesterday on trading of almost 3.4 million shares. The trading increased the company's total value to more than $4.4 billion -- less than a year after Ciena sold its first products and four months after it went public.

BEIJING - Usain Bolt isn't among the many athletes who listen to music with headphones before they compete. His coach, Glen Mills, doesn't allow it, worrying it will interfere with Bolt's concentration. But that didn't stop Bolt from doing a little dancing before he stepped into the blocks last night at the Olympics, before the crowd of 91,000 at the Bird's Nest went quiet for the start of the men's 100-meter final. Bolt won the 100 meters in a time, 9.69 seconds, that broke his own 11-week-old world record of 9.72.

A 2-inch-wide bolt closed a Baltimore County bridge yesterday. When an engineer hired by the Baltimore County government inspected a bridge in the Oella area, he noticed the bolt protruding from the structure. The problem looked serious enough to prompt county officials to temporarily close the bridge, a two-lane, 100-foot-long metal span on Westchester Avenue over a bicycle trail. "The bridge wasn't close to collapsing, but this was a critical piece in the bridge because of the kind of design it is," said David Fidler, a spokesman for the county's Department of Public Works.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to bury the notion of Governing. It has been suffering the ravages of age for some time now, so it perhaps would not be surprised that people gather to bury rather than praise it. And yet the site of its recent demise, Annapolis, is the real surprise. If Governing is used to being maligned in certain places — the offices of the Cato Institute perhaps, or the kind of tea parties that are more Rush Limbaugh than Earl Grey — it tended to find haven amid the red brick and marble halls of Maryland's capitol.

Last year Baltimore got to know a new movement pushing for the humane treatment of animals. Called "Show Your Soft Side," the campaign featured well-known, tough role models cuddling the pets they love and saying, "Only a punk would hurt a dog or cat. " The campaign, launched in the wake of some heart-breaking instances of animal abuse in Baltimore, is easiest to spot on billboards around town. At the time the campaign rolled out, organizers promised there would be a contest where someone would be named "Baltimore Biggest Softie," with the chance to have their face, and their pet, on a billboard.

Anne Arundel County police arrested and charged one man in a Christmas morning break-in at an Annapolis automobile dealership. A video security service notified police shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday of two people on the lot of Fitzgerald Oldsmobile Cadillac. Officers saw two men running, and arrested one when he tried to climb over a fence, said Lt. Doyle Batten. Police found bolt cutters and other tools on the lot that they suspect were used to cut catalytic converters from two vehicles there.

Toward the end of her State of the City address this week, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake took a pointed swipe at her challengers in this year's election, who have been criticizing her for failing to articulate a transformative vision for the city. After noting accomplishments of the past year, Ms. Rawlings-Blake called for a 10-year plan for the city's finances. The idea, she said, is to answer "fundamental questions" of how the city pays for vital services, whether it can live without others, what it can afford in employee benefits and how it can reduce reliance on property taxes — a major theme of her challengers.

The fastest man on the planet says he'll attempt to play professional soccer once he brings his remarkable track career to an end. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt , the world and Olympic 100- and 200-meter champion, told BBC radio on Sunday that he believes he has four years left in sprinting, and in that time wants to lower his world record in the 100 to 9.4 seconds — a record he says would never be broken. "I'm definitely a good player — a defensive or attacking midfielder," the Manchester United fan said.

On the second weekend of June, lightning killed two men in South Carolina, struck three dogs and knocked out radar at an airport in Rhode Island, sparked a fire in New Mexico that forced 33 families from their homes and blasted the lights above Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. That same weekend, lightning struck 842 times within a 15-mile radius of the playgrounds at Annapolis Middle School. Two bolts set houses on fire. Another touched an oak. The one that touched the oak killed a man and injured eight.

BEIJING - The race was simply unbelievable. Usain Bolt wiped his hand over his head several times, ran his index fingers over his eyebrows and pushed out his top so everyone could see "Jamaica" from shoulder to shoulder. Then he crouched into the blocks, waited for the gun and left seven competitors and the previous world record in the dust. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I would have called you a liar. The previous world record in the 200 meters, set by Michael Johnson in the 1996 Games, was 19.32 seconds.

CORTLAND, N.Y. — Some visuals just take getting used to. It was that way with Brett Favre in purple, or Donovan McNabb in burgundy. And it's that way with LaDainian Tomlinson in Jets green, a guy who for so long was synonymous with the Chargers. For Tomlinson, it isn't odd at all. He says he saw his road coming to an end in San Diego at least a couple of years ago. "I'm not going to say I wasn't happy, but I started to see my departure out of San Diego way before you guys did," he told a reporter during a break between training-camp practices.

I often find myself walking through the neighborhoods around Penn Station where Artscape is being staged this weekend. After years of not much happening, these blocks now seem to change before my eyes, even if so many of the buildings seem underused or boarded up. It's a curious part of Baltimore that often keeps its secrets to itself. Discovering what goes on here has proved a lot of fun. There are artists' lofts and studios scattered around the Mount Royal-North Avenue area. The talented people here tell me they like the modest rents and are not concerned with modest exteriors.
