The Orioles have signed infielder Chad Tracy, the son of former major league manager Jim Tracy, to a minor league deal. He's not to be confused with nine-year major leaguer Chad Tracy -- though I was guilty of confusing them today -- who has agreed to a minor league deal and spring training invitation with the Los Angeles Angels, according to a source. The one the Orioles have signed is 28 and has never played in the major leagues. He has spent eight years in the minors, splitting 2013 between York of the independent Atlantic League and Omaha, the Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.

Eight months after leaving Alewife, the downtown tavern that he helped to open in 2010, Chad Wells is back as executive chef. "I'm extraordinarily happy to be back. [We] need each other," Wells said. "We're a family here. " Best known for his 11-ounce smoke burger and his culinary experiments with invasive species like the snake head, Wells left Alewife to take over the kitchen at The Rockfish in Annapolis. At the time, Wells said he was looking forward to shaking up the conservative Annapolis dining.

NEW YORK -- We've debated their validity, their existence and their relevance. We've questioned them, manipulated them, dimpled them, dissed them, punctured them, impregnated them, punched them and then hung them. Why our sudden animosity? Where is our respect? If we are indeed a nation of protecting the innocent until they are proven guilty, why are we, like an angry impatient mob of schoolyard bullies, making scapegoats of them and trying to make them responsible for our country's division and inde- cision?

One year ago, I found myself fleeing a firefight out in the eastern deserts of Chad with Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner. Mr. Hosseini and I had traveled by World Food Program planes and Toyota truck for several days to meet with Darfur refugees who had found shelter in remote desert camps run by the U.N. High Commission for Refugees just across the Sudanese border. One day, rebels backed by the Sudanese regime in Khartoum attacked a camp we were in, and we had to run for our lives.

DJAWARA, Chad -- There was no time for grave markers. But around some of the dirt mounds, the victims' shoes were laid out neatly like slippers beside a bed. Wild animals had unearthed body parts and human bones from the hastily dug mass graves. As local elder Abdullah Aziz Ibrahim walked through the pasture, he held his breath against the stench. "They killed us one by one," he said. He stooped over the grave of one former neighbor to try to cover the man's exposed skull with branches and leaves.

NAIROBI, Kenya -- Thousands of frightened Chadians took advantage of a lull in fighting yesterday to flee N'Djamena when rebels withdrew from the capital after two days of heavy clashes with government troops. Officials, however, warned that battles probably were not over, and rebel leaders vowed to attack again. "Rebels still have a capability of fighting," said Capt. Christophe Prazuck, spokesman for the French Ministry of Defense, which has 1,900 troops deployed in the central African country and has evacuated nearly 1,000 foreigners.

MIAMI - As many as 1,700 Miami-Dade County voters invalidated their presidential ballots because they mistakenly punched the chad immediately below the one corresponding to their preferred candidate, a California researcher has found. Those voters penetrated a meaningless chad - one that didn't correspond to any candidate - probably because their punch cards were not properly aligned with ballot books in the voting booth, said Anthony Salvanto, a faculty fellow in the political science department at the University of California at Irvine.

At Stevenson, playing defensive midfield is almost as much about athleticism as it is about defensive commitment. A unit composed of long-stick midfielders Chad Williams, Ryan Rubenstein and Warren Pumphrey and short-stick midfielders Connor Curro, Dylan Muti, Marcellus Preston and Peter Green must keep an opponent's midfielders at bay and turn defense into instant offense. “You've got to get your best athletes out there, and that's what we have,” said Williams, a freshman. “We have a bunch of athletes that are willing to put 110 percent as a team and play good team defense.” Added Curro: “We stress on it a lot, getting up and down the field and clearing and transition.

A day's worth of some excellent storm coverage by CNN was all but shredded during the Piers Morgan show Monday night when meteorologist Chad Myers reported that the New York Stock Exchange was under three feet of water and the hip-shooting host ran wild with the report that turned out to be false. What a shame for all those CNN correspondents in places like Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City and Asbury Park who spent the day and night standing in cold ocean water and rain doing such a fine job of reporting the story.

WASHINGTON - There is a patron saint of disputed elections, and his name is St. Chad. Thirteen hundred years before "dimpled chad" stalled America's transfer of power, the name Chad came to mean wrongfully holding office and stepping down selflessly in the name of unity. The year was A.D. 664, in Dark Ages Britain, just as the Latin and Celtic churches were uniting after a big fight over the date of Easter. A monk named Wilfred was named bishop of York and went off to Paris to be consecrated.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia --Armed rebels entered N'Djamena, the capital of Chad, before dawn yesterday, but government troops beat them back in fierce fighting, prompting embattled President Idriss Deby to take to the airwaves and declare, "The situation is under control." That might have been an overstatement. The rebels, known as the United Front for Democratic Change, vowed to continue their effort to overthrow Deby before the May 3 presidential election. An undetermined number of rebels crept into the capital early yesterday.

Divas still in demand Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun Will Chad Johnson get another shot in the NFL? I hope not. The tired acts of Terrell Owens, Plaxico Burress and Johnson need to be shelved for good. After allegedly assaulting his wife, Johnson should worry more about staying out of jail than trying to get back onto the football field. Are NFL teams really hurting that badly for wide receivers that these divas keep getting chances? Maybe. Randy Moss got his third — or is it fourth?
