CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The numbers when projected over a full season are even better than last year, when outfielder Danny Clyburn was an International League All-Star.Still, Clyburn remains on the waiting list for the Orioles' outfield, locked in at Triple-A Rochester, where he has little more to prove on offense.Other Red Wings outfielders have been summoned to Baltimore -- Jesus Tavarez and Lyle Mouton, for instance -- and Clyburn, a member of the 40-man Orioles roster, is hoping to follow.

Danny Clyburn is either very levelheaded or the consummate company man.Passed over twice this season when the Orioles needed a minor-league fill-in, the 22-year-old Rochester Red Wings power hitter has chosen not to think about the apparent slights.Not even during a season in which he has done what he was asked -- hit for better average.His improvement (a .296 batting average through Thursday, along with 16 homers and 52 RBIs) made him the starting left fielder in the Triple-A All-Star Game, but Bowie outfielder Dave Dellucci and Red Wings teammate Aaron Ledesma have been called up to the Orioles instead of him."

Maryland's judiciary is urging the General Assembly to streamline the state's system for setting or denying bail for criminal defendants, replacing the current two-step process with a single hearing before a judge most of the time. A task force appointed by Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera delivered its recommendations Monday to a panel set up by the legislature. The two study groups have taken significantly different approaches to how the state should respond to a Court of Appeals decision guaranteeing defendants legal representation at both steps in the bail review process - a ruling that could cost the state public defender's office alone about $30 million a year.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Rep. James E. Clyburn's district director and a secretary are squarely behind John Kerry. A district aide and a close cousin are backing John Edwards. But the South Carolina Democrat, hounded by presidential candidates hankering for his influential support ahead of this state's Feb. 3 primary, won't say until today at the earliest whom, if anyone, among the seven hopefuls he will endorse. "I've narrowed it to seven," said a chuckling Clyburn, who has played coy for more than a week with close associates, family members and reporters over whom he will support since Richard A. Gephardt, his original choice, dropped out of the race last week after losing handily in the Iowa caucus.

All it took were two games for Willis Otanez to catch the injury bug that has swept through the Orioles' clubhouse. Outfielder Danny Clyburn can only hope he's more immune.Good luck.Clyburn was recalled from Triple-A Rochester yesterday when Otanez went on the disabled list with a fractured left wrist. Otanez, who is lost for the remainder of the season, suffered the injury Thursday night while diving for a first-inning fly ball from Chicago's Albert Belle. It was his second major-league appearance, and it ended the club's outfield experiment.

Who let this character Ben Clyburn run around loose in these parts? Clyburn's not just any character, mind you. He's Judge Ben C. Clyburn, chief judge of the District Court of Maryland. That's right: Clyburn is the head honcho of all the district courts in the state. He's held that position for three years. He also spent 10 years as a trial judge in Baltimore District Court, located at the corner of North Avenue and Harford Road. As a judge, Clyburn has some funny notions. Like, for instance, believing that the judiciary is an independent branch of government, equal to that of the executive and legislative branches.

The Maryland District Court said Thursday that its chief judge has dismissed 3,168 debt-collection cases against state residents and ordered that any liens associated with those cases be released. The move, involving Worldwide Asset Purchasing cases, is a result of a settlement in a federal class-action suit. Attorneys for the plaintiffs alleged that the debt-buying firm wasn't licensed, sued for the wrong amounts, filed cases after the statute of limitations had expired, and included consumers' Social Security numbers in publicly available court filings, the state judiciary said.

A legal self-help center at the District Court in Glen Burnie is now offering free legal advice beyond Anne Arundel County, extending its reach statewide via the Internet and a call-in service launched last week. "This is a way to expand the service throughout the state," said Ben C. Clyburn, chief judge of the District Court. Two-thirds of people forgo an attorney for civil matters in District Courts, Clyburn said, many because they can't afford a lawyer. Therefore, people need access to basic legal information, the judge said.

Divided House Democrats re-elected their leaders to minority party positions in the next Congress, choosing Reps. Nancy Pelosi as leader and Steny H. Hoyer as whip. Perhaps appropriately, given Maryland's status as an island of Democratic blue in a widening sea of Republican red, the state can lay claim to fully half of the top six members of the incoming leadership team. Pelosi was born in Baltimore, and Hoyer represents the southern part of the state. A sixth member, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, represents Maryland's Washington suburbs.

Judges enveloped by mountains of paper, clerks pushing carts piled high with files and people traveling to the courthouse just to look at documents — all could become obsolete in Maryland, as the judiciary moves toward an electronic courts system. "Right now, you go to court and you say, 'Can I see the file?' [Soon] there won't be a file," said District Court Chief Judge Ben C. Clyburn, who heads the e-court advisory committee. Instead, people will be able to view a virtual file online.

Ben Clyburn leaves his $7,000 Armani shoes at home when he goes begging the General Assembly on behalf of state courts. But the chief judge of Maryland's District Court won't say just where in the house he keeps those cap-toed alligator lace-ups. "I have one hidden in one part of the house and another in another part of the house," he said. "I had to put a special rider on my insurance policy." Clyburn didn't buy that fancy footwear on his judge's salary. He didn't buy it at all. He has a son in the fashion industry who interned with Armani while he was a design-school student at Parsons in New York.
