A 19-year-old man was critically injured when he fell about 60 feet from a catwalk in an abandoned plant in Dundalk on Sunday afternoon, according to a Baltimore County fire official. Emergency crews were called to the old Joseph E. Seagram & Sons bottling plant in the 7100 block of Sollers Point Road about 3:49 p.m. by the man's friend, who had also been on the catwalk but did not fall, said Capt. C. Ross Cooke, a fire spokesman. The plant, closed in the late 1980s, has multiple buildings, some of which are gutted with unsecured stairwells, Cooke said.

Orioles right fielder Chris Davis continued his recent tear at the plate Monday night in the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Davis' two-run homer in the ninth off Rays reliever Kyle Farnsworth, his career-high 32nd of the season, was his sixth homer in five games. He's now homered in five consecutive games, the first Oriole to accomplish the feat since Melvin Mora on Sept. 30, 2005 to April 5, 2006. It's also largest consecutive-game homer streak in the same season since Reggie Jackson homered in six straight games on July 18-23, 1976.

No, rockfish.Department of Natural Resources police organized "Operation Fish Hook" to discourage people from catching and keeping striped bass, an endangered species in Chesapeake Bay. Also known as rockfish, the species has been protected by fishing restrictions for the past seven years. Operation Fish Hook at Conowingo Dam has thus far resulted in more than 100 citations, 20 of them for illegal possession of striped bass.

Random thoughts as the Orioles go into tonight's game against the Rays with their backs against the wall, one game behind the Yankees for the AL East crown with two to go: ** Was that a great scene in the O's dugout last night after Chris Davis hit that two-run shot in the ninth off Ray's reliever Kylle Farnsworth, the one that hit the Tropicana Field catwalk? Davis himself had no idea what happened, that much was clear. When the ball smacked what's called the C-ring of the roof's catwalk, he practically stopped in his tracks around second base, wondering why the ball had suddenly landed 100 feet or so in front of the outfield wall.

How do you stop teen-agers from doing stupid teen-age things, like playing chicken on railroad tracks, or scaling water towers or clambering beneath a bridge high above frigid waters?If Ray and Kelly Jacob of Cape St. Claire had the answer, their son, Michael, would still be alive, playing guitar and writing poetry. Michael, who sounded like an intelligent, introspective young man, died Saturday night when he fell off a catwalk under the U.S. 50 bridge, plunging 80 feet into the Severn River near Annapolis.

How does a baseball go in there and stay in there?" -- Jose Canseco of the Devil Rays, who hit a catwalk suspended from the Tropicana Field roof and got a ground-rule double instead of a homer.It's a fact: The Athletics' Miguel Tejada hit into an unusual 1-5-2-6-3 double play.

Isis King is by no means a finished project. She's an evolving work of art. Many expected the 25-year-old to be sashaying the catwalks for major fashion houses in Europe after her ground-breaking appearance on "America's Next Top Model. " But she has essentially walked away from the industry because she thinks it limits her artistic talents. King, a Prince George's County native now living in New York City, is pursuing a design career and testing the waters in acting. That doesn't mean that she has completely turned her back on the runway, though.

In the world of canine competition, there are agility shows, which are a bit like gymnastics, with dogs performing on a series of obstacles and jumps. There are obedience trials, which some experts compare to spelling bees for dogs, requiring mental skill and concentration. There are field work contests, for dogs to show their hunting and searching abilities. But yesterday's National Capital Kennel Club conformation show at the Howard County Fairgrounds was the equivalent of a beauty pageant for dogs.

John Robinson has been driving past the 67-year-old stone building on historic Ellicott City's Main Street for years, he said, before he made a happy discovery several weeks ago. "It's really a post office, with no lines," he said, standing alone at a clerk's window. "This is my second time in here. I thought it was an [unused] historic building or something." But Robinson's joy might be short-lived. During his visit Monday, the 53-year-old Ellicott City resident learned that the building is to be sold to Howard County for conversion to a larger tourism office, which is why he had to wend his way through a crowd of politicians and news reporters in front of the 1940 building to get inside.

NEW YORK - As a stylist daubs lipstick on Dovile Virsilaite's bee-stung lips, you notice they're the only plump thing on her. The 17-year-old model from Lithuania is a leggy beauty, but volatile. Left unattended, she barks into her cell phone. Maestro is a 3-year-old champion bichon frise from Pennsylvania. Her pink tongue hangs coquettishly over her lower teeth as her handler blow dries her luxuriant white fur. She's beautiful, but not too choosy. Left unattended, she licks the hand of any stranger who comes near her. In recent days, both these pedigreed types were put through their paces in their respective milieu: New York's Fashion Week, held in Bryant Park, and the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden.

CONOWINGO -- Hidden inside the massive Conowingo Dam, in a location as secret as any good fishing hole, officers from the Maryland Natural Resources Police scan a catwalk decorated with weekend fishermen.Using binoculars and high-powered scopes, the search is on for poachers who aspire to hook a striped bass -- rockfish -- in the gushing, nutrient-rich waters of the Susquehanna River below.Earlier this month, "Operation Fish Hook" started at the dam -- a police effort to halt rockfish poachers who catch the fish with illegal bait and often sell them for up to $6 a pound.
