Havre de Grace. -- What a difference a landslide makes. Before the watershed election of 1994, when Dan Quayle took a pea-shooter to the entertainment industry, the industry and its media cousins responded with righteous wrath.For his critical one-liner about the single parenthood of Murphy -- Brown, the title character on a brain-dead television show he'd never watched, the former vice president was alternately derided as a nitwit and depicted as the front man for the forces of darkness.

Howard County recycling officials have found a way to prevent more than 900 tons of glass from being broken each year in the recycling process -- breakage that renders the glass worthless to recyclers and fit only to be buried in a trash dump.This month, all neighborhoods were required to put containers in see-through plastic shopping bags on the curb rather than loose in the plastic bins that were formerly used in the curbside recycling program.The tied-up bags -- each containing a mix of glass, plastic and metal containers -- keep the items from rattling around when they are loaded into collection trucks and from getting smashed when they are dumped onto the floor of the Browning-Ferris Industries recycling plant in Elkridge.

Dublin - The two men drink standing near the back of the long bar at Davy Byrnes, one of the many watering holes in this city that, in the words of writer Samuel Beckett, who once lived upstairs, have been known to house "broken glass and indiscretion." In the back, because that's well away from the "whippets" and "blow-ins" who tend to wander in, armed with neither intellect nor wit, if one distinguishes between the two, settle on the first available stool and ask for a "Boodweiser" from the barman.

BINT JBAIL, Lebanon -- Smeared with dirt and covered in flies, the woman sat dazed and stranded in the rubble for days. When she looked up yesterday to see people from the outside world approaching through the morning heat, the words tumbled from between her broken teeth. "God brought you," said Libi Ibrahim, blinking into the sun. "I didn't want to die alone. Don't leave me." A drive into the bomb-wrecked city of Bint Jbail is a voyage into the epicenter of the war between Israel and Hezbollah.

The impressive stretch from Preakness winner Smarty Jones is clearly what stood out at the 129th running of the race at Pimlico Race Course. But what took place first, from the eyes of Lion Heart trainer Patrick Biancone, was equally impressive. Just how great is Smarty Jones, against whom Lion Heart has battled and faltered twice down the stretch? Comparable to "The Greatest," according to the French-born trainer. Starting on the rail, Lion Heart led through three-quarters of a mile before Smarty Jones "swallowed us in two jumps," said Biancone.

Thoroughbred racing returns to steamy Pimlico Race Course today for a 13-day meeting that ventures into uncharted territory. With officials still groping to find a solution for the glass breakage in the Laurel Park grandstand, the Maryland Jockey Club will run this abbreviated stand at a site that is traditionally confined to simulcasting only during the summer. The change of venue is almost certain to affect revenues, particularly with only two stakes races scheduled during the stand, the foremost being the $125,000 Straight Deal Breeders Cup on Aug. 18.

The execution-style slaying of a Baltimore police officer happened close enough to the storefront windowfor a stray bullet to shatter it. For a month, Craig Van Cutsem has kept the shell casing below the cracked glass, awaiting an insurance agent's appraisal. To Van Cutsem, owner of Weaco Inc., an ornamental ironwork factory that has been in business at Harford Road and Darley Avenue in Northeast Baltimore since 1952, the shooting was a too-familiar reminder that the neighborhood is half a century and a world apart from the one where it began.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Gazing at the men and women who convicted him of murder, Jonathan Trull testified yesterday that he didn't stab Maryland visitors Matthew Wichita, Kevans Hall II or Seth Qubeck in April 1998. "I ain't the one who done this," the 30-year-old man said. The jury will recommend whether he deserves a death sentence. Trull disputed much of the testimony offered during the nine-week-long trial, even challenging the account of Qubeck, who survived the attack. Trull, the oldest of the three brothers accused in the slayings, was the only one convicted of murder in the deaths of Hall, 23, and Wichita, 21, and for the attempted murder of Qubeck, 21, all of Columbia.

Older residents recall baseball games, neighborhood celebrations and Easter egg hunts in the park on the east side of the north Anne Arundel County community of Harundale, which had athletic fields, a basketball court and a playground. Now weeds grow through the cracked asphalt of the old basketball court. Shrubs and small trees grow in the infield. Only a charred skeleton remains of the playground equipment, and the only reminders of spring-mounted rocking horses are rusting bits of metal sticking out of the ground.
