Thanks for your continuing coverage of the abduction of former Orioles Cal Ripken's mother, Vi. ("As Vi Ripken abduction case continues, police silent on details," Aug. 2). It's been 10 days since this unfortunate incident and still very few facts have been revealed while many questions remain unanswered. I saw family spokesman John Maroon's statement, but why has the victim not described what happened to her? Why have authorities not divulged more details of the investigation?

Susa Kessler, a retired World Bank analyst who had fled Nazi Germany as a child, died of breast cancer complications Tuesday at Gilchrist Hospice Care. The Canton resident was 88. Born in Stuttgart, Germany, she was the daughter of Dr. Caesar Hirsch, an ear, nose and throat doctor, and Felicia Hearst. Family members said that her father heard that Adolf Hitler and his government planned to blacklist him because he was a Jew. "To avoid arrest, Dr. Hirsch sent his children to Switzerland in the company of their grandmother," said Ms. Kessler's son, John J. "Jack" Condliffe of Timonium.

ATLANTA -- He picked up a team and a city, put them on his shoulders and carried them right back into the World Series.The Yankees were out of it, down two games and facing three on the road, reduced to the role of the confetti in a coronation for the Braves.Then David Cone took the mound in Game 3, five months removed from a hospital bed, a walking New York story in his road grays -- and suddenly there was a Series."David knew how badly we needed this win, and he gave it to us," said manager Joe Torre after the Yankees' 5-2 win at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

TAMPA, Fla. -- David Cone was no match for El Nino last night as a freakish cold spell forced him to miss another spring-training start. With fans at Legends Field wrapped in blankets, the New York Yankees thought it best to keep Cone insulated from a stiff wind and temperatures in the mid-40s."

By most standards, Rafael Palmeiro's three-run homer in the seventh inning would be judged as the turning point in the Orioles' 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday.Not so said the man who gave up the biggest hit. It was, said losing pitcher David Cone, a relatively obscure at-bat with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning."To me, it all goes back to Brady Anderson," said Cone. "He was the catalyst for them. He had a great at-bat in the fifth inning. I made some real good pitches to him that he barely fouled off and then he got the base hit that got them started."

The Orioles' blunder wasn't in failing to block the David Cone trade, it was failing to land a pitcher like Cone themselves. Postseason rosters freeze at midnight Monday, but don't hold your breath waiting for a trade to match Toronto's.Blue Jays general manager Pat Gillick is always one step ahead of his peers, and this time Roland Hemond was one step behind. Allowing Cone to slip through the waiver process was not as inexcusable as it might seem. Still, Hemond should have seen this coming, and countered with a bold stroke of his own.He still might, but he won't get the major-league strikeout leader now, will he?

Darryl Strawberry yesterday called the three women who have filed a civil suit against New York Mets pitcher David Cone "a bunch of pigs" who have a history of harassing the team, including baring their breasts while the players were on the team bus."It's important for society to know people can say things, but the things they were doing were ridiculous," Strawberry said before the Mets played the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday. "It's important that people know that. Yes, I'm jumping to Coney's side.

" Snow Cone Maker " by Tiny Toys Inc., is in the top 30 of free gaming apps on the Apple store, which is not surprising since half of the country is experiencing oven-like conditions this summer. Snow cones (or "snow balls," or "shaved ice" depending on your region) represent Americana in July like few other traditions. As an enterprising 16 year-old desperate to buy a used car, I toiled one summer at my local snow cone stand to earn a few (under the table) dollars.

As we drove up, down and around Costa Rica's twisty mountain roads, edging bicyclists and pedestrians on the path to the small town of La Fortuna, I realized the sun was going to set much sooner than I had thought. After a full day of travel, we were still miles from our destination. Driving unfamiliar terrain in a foreign country that seems to eschew street signs had put us behind in our goal of reaching our lodging near the base of an active volcano before nightfall.

"I sit here now, enfolded in the warmth and love of my very large family," says actress Vivienne Shub in the role of art collector Etta Cone in The Cone Sister. The word "family" had multiple meanings Sunday night at Everyman Theatre, where this lovely, informative one-woman show made its debut. There was Shub's own family, beginning with sister Naomi Greenberg-Slovin, who wrote the play, and also including three generations (some of whom traveled from New England). Then there was the surrogate family made up of the audience, which expressed its love with a standing ovation.

There once were two sisters. One was a pioneer and an adventurer, while the other was a homebody. One was outspoken and fierce, while the other was peace-loving and quiet. The sisters grew up together in Baltimore. They went their separate ways as adults, only to join forces again late in life. Together, they made an indelible contribution to the local arts scene. Their names were Claribel and Etta Cone. And their names are Naomi Greenberg-Slovin and Vivienne Shub.

Turns out the wife isn't always the last to know. Sometimes it's the school board. On Monday, Maryland schools chief Nancy Grasmick gave reporters an off-the-record briefing on her plan to seize 11 failing Baltimore City schools. That was a full day before she told city schools CEO Bonnie Copeland about it. Even then, the board was supposed to stay out of the loop. "My understanding is that Dr. Grasmick told Dr. Copeland that it would be foolish to share the details of her proposal with anyone - including the board - because it had not yet been approved by the state board," city board Chairman Brian Morris said.
