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.

OCEAN CITY -- For 80 minutes yesterday evening, Ernie Duckett thought he had caught a $71,000 fish. Then Bob Bell showed up at the scales of the White Marlin Open.Not only had Bell caught a larger white marlin, but it also stands to be worth more money -- roughly $120,000 more.Oddly enough, Duckett and Bell had the first two boats to the scales on the first day of the open, and the anglers on the other 219 boats entered may end up chasing them through the final weigh-ins Friday."This is the first time I have fished Ocean City this year," said Duckett, of Edgewater.

OCEAN CITY -- Through the first four days of this year's White Marlin Open, 225 white marlin were caught, but none met the tournament's minimum weight of 65 pounds.Yesterday, nearly $800,000 hung in the balance as some 260 boats ran out to the offshore canyons."That's what one 65-pound white marlin would be worth across the board," Open co-chairman Andy Motsko said shortly after the scales opened at Harbor Island Marina. "But that's if only one white is weighed in."Or, if the same boat weighed in the top two white marlins of the week, which tournament officials said never had been done.

If a Utah high school javelin thrower had a little more loft on his state tournament-winning toss, this story would not be so amusing. Luckily, the throw by Provo High's Anthony Miles caught newspaper photographer Ryan McGeeney just below the knee, causing far less damage than if it had struck him in, say, the torso. McGeeney, a former Marine, works as an intern for the Ogden Standard-Examiner. The description of the injury is a pip. The javelin pierced McGeeney's leg, and an emergency medical technician cut off most of the javelin - sort of the way they cut off the end of an arrow sticking in a guy's shoulder in an old cowboy movie - but left about a foot and a half through McGeeney's leg. As far as McGeeney's condition is concerned, the javelin didn't hit any major blood vessels, ligaments or tendons and caught all skin and a little meat (I realize that's probably not standard medical terminology)

The ball hit by Cal Ripken Jr. for his last home run brought $17,270 at auction this week - less than the $30,000 predicted by sports memorabilia experts. Fourteen bids were placed on the ball, which Ripken drove into the stands for No. 431 on Sept. 23, 2001. Bob Oler, of Timonium, the fan who caught it, said he would put the profits toward building his new house in Sparks. "I'd like to meet [the buyer] and tell the story of how I caught it," he says, "unless that someone wants to remain anonymous."
