CLEARWATER, Fla. -- It's a modest, two-story office building in a sleepy downtown. But for Bob Minton, it is the field office for nothing less than a war for the heart and soul of this quiet coastal city. "We're going to liberate Clearwater," Minton declares. Whether Clearwater needs liberating is open to debate. But after about 25 years of serving, often uneasily, as one of the Church of Scientology's most important bases in the country, Clearwater finds itself once again drawn into a battle over the controversial group.

Back in the day, when Jack Germond was a member of TV's "The McLaughlin Group," I fondly referred to him as Big Daddy. There is no doubt that Mr. Germond could detect the smell of mendacity in the air. Indeed, this legend in his own time beat to the tune of his own drummer and was driven by a passion to write the unadulterated truth. In the final analysis, it mattered not what Mr. Germond looked like. What mattered, is what he said, and the late Baltimore Sun political columnist told as it was. JoAnn Lee Frank, Clearwater, Fla.

It was a human moment that wasn't revealed in the box score of the Orioles' 5-3 road split-squad loss to the Phillies in Clearwater -- a father finally getting to coach his son in a sport to which they have both dedicated their careers. Orioles bench coach John Russell, who managed the team's road split-squad team with manager Buck Showalter back in Sarasota on Saturday afternoon, had never had the opportunity to coach his son, Steel, before Sunday's game.  Steel Russell, a left-handed hitting catcher whom the Orioles drafted in the 32 nd round last season out of Midland Junior College in Texas, jumped at the chance to get on the team's travel roster to Clearwater for Sunday's game.
