State biologists have bagged a bundle of bad news: a 3-inch fingerling that looks a lot like a baby northern snakehead, the invader from overseas that has infested a pond in Crofton. Snakehead stalker Joe Gillespie - the Crofton angler who landed a 26-inch specimen two weeks ago - packed the little green creature in a plastic bag and gave it to Maryland Department of Natural Resources biologists yesterday. Gillespie told them he netted seven more just like it Monday night, said DNR spokesman John Surrick.

America hates a liar -- or, at least, it hates a liar who gets caught. Lies, per se, are not un-American, of course. By design, Hollywood, the American mythmaker, is and always has been a cottage industry of fancies and fakes. It has infected the whole of American life so much that we are almost unable to distinguish between real and celluloid life -- a truth richly examined in "Life: The Movie" by Neal Gabler (Knopf, 290 pages, $27.50). We like our history revisionist, our effects sanguinary and our endings sanguine.

NORTH EAST -- The shortnose sturgeon is a little thing, as sturgeon go, and so easily caught that here on the Chesapeake it was fished into oblivion a century ago. It's such a rare fish in the bay that the last confirmed sighting of one was in 1986.So when two fishermen who work the waters at the head of the bay checked their nets Tuesday and found one, it seemed like pretty big news. When they went back the next day and found two more, it was like hitting the sturgeon jackpot.For a fish that's long been on the endangered species list, it was an embarrassment of riches.

Co-coach of the YearDoug DuVall, Wilde Lake: Heading into tonight's state semifinal against Friendly, the Wildecats have won 24 of their last 25 games. DuVall, whose coaching specialty is the offensive line, is jovial off the field but intense during games. He delegates a lot of responsibility to his assistant coaches and instills a family atmosphere among his staff and players. He picked up his 200th career win this season, and has a career record of 208 wins and 56 losses in 25 years -- all of them at Wilde Lake.

CLEVELAND -- In the end, Carlton Fisk was among the last to know.Seems that's always the case.Professional athletes, especially the exceptional ones, often areblind to reality. Maybe it's their self-confidence. Or self-absorption. Or, perhaps, self-deception.Whatever it is, the best athletes rarely can bring themselves to admit the end is near.Fisk didn't even know it yesterday afternoon, when he was summoned to general manager Ron Schueler's 13th-floor hotel suite.Never mind that Fisk, by his own admission, was having trouble playing up to the level of major-league competition at age 45. Or that 22 consecutive runners had stolen against him. Or that just about everyone who watched him try to play this year knew his career was over.

Schools should treat tobacco like alcohol, drugsEven though the Howard County school board has changed its smoking policy to suspend students and have them attend Saturday school the first time they are caught smoking and to expel them the third time they are caught smoking, they have done nothing to make it easier to catch students in the first place.Under current policy, students have to be caught smoking a lighted cigarette to be charged with smoking on school grounds.Tobacco and smoking should be included with the school's alcohol and drug policy.

Stop with all the outrage already. The injury to Chris Hoiles was unfortunate, perhaps even pennant-threatening. It was a crime, but it isn't as if cheating is not a time-honored tradition in baseball.Gaylord Perry had to spread Vasoline all over himself to slip into the Hall of Fame. There were enough scuffed balls collected during Don Sutton's career to fill a wing at Cooperstown, but he will be there soon instead.The thing that galls the Orioles is that they caught Tim Leary of the New York Yankees in the act -- or at least they think they did -- and he's probably going to walk.
