TAIPEI, Taiwan -- In a city dominated by a huge memorial to dictator Chiang Kai-shek, another symbol of this island's troubled past is nearing completion: a memorial to Chiang's victims, designed by a man who tried to assassinate Chiang's son.Such a turn of events would have been unimaginable a few years ago. The 1947 massacre of up to 20,000 indigenous Taiwanese here was a taboo subject. Perhaps even more than Taiwan's blooming democracy or its phenomenal economic wealth, the story of the "228" memorial and the failed assassin Cheng Tzu-tsai illustrates the rapid-fire changes taking place on this small island of 21 million off the coast of China.

It could be said that Sheila Song's choice of career as a geriatric pharmacist is in herblood. For it is the close relationship the Carney resident has long shared with her grandmother, Cheng Soon Song, now 89, who had a major role in Song's upbringing, and who led Song to see that there is both need and reward in working with the elderly. The Loch Raven High School graduate, Song, 25, recently earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy after completing an intensive four-year program at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in Baltimore.

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- It's one of Taipei's four nice days a year, but Cheng Lang-ping wants to meet in a dark and icy steakhouse. The meeting comes only after a friend thrice removed has vouched that the reporter is not CIA, FBI or KGB. And, of course, no photos, please.It may sound a bit excessive, even for a best-selling author, but Mr. Cheng has just written a book that has so shocked his fellow citizens that he has received death threats and charges of being a spy.The book is called "August 1995: The Prediction of Communist China's Military Invasion of Taiwan."

The Maryland-built NEAR spacecraft is circling the asteroid Eros at an altitude of as little as 12 miles - its closest approach since arriving at the ancient space rock in February. "This is the payoff time," said NEAR project scientist Andrew Cheng of the Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Lab in Laurel. Thousands of photos sent back by NEAR have revealed the 21-mile-long asteroid to be a bleak and battered place, cratered by meteorites and strewn with jagged boulders the size of buildings.

Scientists say the asteroid 433 Eros, now being orbited by a Maryland-built spacecraft, is not a loose pile of space rubble, but a solid, if fractured, piece of rock. And that bit of information might come in handy some day. "If we ever have to deflect an asteroid that's coming toward our Earth, we really need to know that, if we push it in the wrong way, it might split into two asteroids, both of which are still heading towards Earth," said Andrew F. Cheng, project scientist for the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission.

Neudecker, a junior from North Carroll, captured the state girls singles title Saturday with a grueling 6-4, 7-6 (6-5) win against Bethesda-Chevy Chase's Taylor Newman at the University of Maryland. "Most likely … that was my hardest match," Neudecker said. The pair was tied 5-5 in the tiebreaker when Newman hit a shot just wide, eliciting a roar from Neudecker's cheering section and tears from Newman.

A week ago last Saturday, the building housing Tony Cheng's Chinese restaurant (801 N. Charles St.) quietly changed hands. The owner of the Great Fortune Buffet in Cockeysville, who refers to himself simply as Lo, has taken it over and plans to keep things much the same, at least for the present. Eventually, Lo wants to update the menu and renovate the dining rooms. His plans include keeping the first floor an upscale Sichuan restaurant and making the second floor a Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. He'll probably call the two the Fortune Restaurant or the Fortune Szechuan Restaurant.

Few Chinese restaurants in town have as grand an appearance as Tony Cheng's, located in a stately mansion on Charles Street. Walk through the round archway to the spacious back dining room, and you'll find tables dressed in pink tablecloths and bright-red exotic blooms.Waterfowl are worked in tapestry on banquettes and etched in glass between wood-trimmed booths. Shirred fabric lines a curved wall, an effect elegant enough for the White House. Aside from the out-of-place Christmas decorations, it's a room that raises expectations.
