The Baltimore Sun has recently reviewed hundreds of workers' compensation claims at government agencies in the area. Many were quite serious: Teachers were frequently assaulted in schools; police were often injured on the city's dangerous streets; firefighters were burnt rushing into blazing buildings. But other claims were somewhat less compelling. Government employees are eligible to file for compensation if they are hurt on the job, and that can happen in many ways. Here are some of the oddest filings we spotted: •An Anne Arundel County government worker filed a claim after a "big gust of wind knocked her off her feet and she fell over backwards.

A QUICK GLANCE at our car, or a whiff inside, and it is obvious that any time the Breslin family shows up to a car wash, it is for the entertainment value.We don't go very often, and success is determined not by how clean the car is, but by how much fun we have.Whether it's self-serve, full-serve or watch-the-action- from-the-car-window wash, we have found car washes big fun for years.Last week, we found something even better -- a self-serve dog wash. Many other families have made the same discovery.

Not everybody who might stop at a real estate open house would commit a Sunday afternoon during football season to the trip, or get in the car on a snowy afternoon just to see a house devoid of furniture. After all, clicking online, buyers can view dozens of homes in the time it takes to attend a single open house. But in a market littered with unsold houses, buyers might be game to attend an open house with good food or face-painting, or consider making an appointment to see a house recommended by a friend who attended a lavish VIP party there.

Baltimore County police who arrested a suspected drug dealer at a car wash one night had been tipped off on where he had been hiding crack cocaine: between the cheeks of his buttocks. Police searched. And there it was. But the circumstances of that Sept. 29, 2000, search, done in a secluded area with other officers and the suspect's friend present, have come into question. For the first time, Maryland's highest court is being asked to rule when the search of a private body area need not be so private - and whether this search was private enough.
