If cruising to the desert sounds like a physical impossibility, consider the Sea of Cortez -- a region where an environmental phenomenon has made the impossible possible. It's where the desert meets the sea -- literally.More than 50 desert islands dot the 700-mile sea.Millions of years ago, a shift in the San Andreas fault ripped what is now Baja California from the flank of mainland Mexico. When the Pacific rushed in to fill the gap, it created the Sea of Cortez, or the Gulf of California.

Timothy Virts, accused of killing Bobbie Jo Cortez this month and abducting one of their daughters, will remain in jail pending trial, a judge ruled Tuesday. Virts, 38, waived his right to attend a bail hearing and did not appear in court. No attorney was present. The judge complied with a prosecutor's request to continue holding Virts without bail. Police say Virts stabbed 36-year-old Bobbie Jo Cortez in her house in the 3100 Ardee Way in Dundalk earlier this month and fled the area with their 11-year-old daughter Caitlyn Virts.

LAS VEGAS -- Referee Joe Cortez, a man known for allowing fighters to dictate a physical pace, has been named the third man in the ring for the Hasim Rahman-Lennox Lewis rematch Saturday night. Cortez is most recently remembered for allowing John Ruiz extra time to recover from a low blow against Evander Holyfield in their rematch. Cortez's action in that fight, won by Ruiz, may have cost him the nod as referee for the Bernard Hopkins-Felix Trinidad fight in September. Ruiz, like Trinidad, is Puerto Rican.

Baltimore County police say Timothy Virts has returned to Maryland to face homicide allegations, a week after the abduction of his daughter and the killing of her mother sparked a multistate manhunt. Virts, 38, is charged in the March 6 death of 36-year-old Bobbie Jo Cortez at her Ardee Way home in Dundalk. Police said that after killing Cortez, Virts took their 11-year-old daughter Caitlyn and fled the area in a Dodge Durango owned by Cortez's husband. Police issued an Amber Alert for Caitlyn, and both were located the following day in a motel in Florence, S.C. A motel owner called police after recognizing them from the Amber Alert.

ASHBURN, Va. - In an effort to improve a struggling special teams unit, the Washington Redskins released kicker James Tuthill and signed Jose Cortez as his replacement yesterday. Tuthill had been with the team during the preseason, didn't make the final cut before the regular season and then returned when incumbent Brett Conway tore his quadriceps muscle during the team's Week 1 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. But he was cut, in part, for failing to convert five field-goal attempts and an extra point in his last four games.

At first, Alciabades Cortez believed his wife was joking."I really thought it was bull," said the veteran rider on the Maryland thoroughbred circuit. "She talked about it, but I never thought she wanted to really be a jockey. This was like a big surprise. But I said we'll try it and see what happens."Amy Cortez -- with some prompting from trainer Jerry Robb -- was dead serious about entering her husband's profession and, as an apprentice rider, is getting occasional mounts from Robb, one of the state's heavyweight horsemen.

A Miracle of Catfish Larry Brown Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill / 455 pages / $24.95 For 16 years, Larry Brown's highly praised novels, short stories and nonfiction illuminated the brutally hard, funny and sometimes magical realities of his native Mississippi. In his sixth novel, A Miracle of Catfish, the book nearing completion when Brown died in 2004, he gives us old men and fathers as fiercely competent as they are murderous, and a factory maintenance man who can't do one blessed thing right, especially when it comes to fathering his wonderful little boy. There are considerably fewer Mississippi wives and daughters in the novel than there are male points of view about the women's attributes and responsibilities (a light touch when cooking biscuits matters, in other words)

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- U.S. soldiers played cards and drank whiskey at a checkpoint as they devised a plan to rape and kill a 14-year- old Iraqi girl and kill her family, one of the accused told investigators. After the alleged attack, one of the soldiers grilled chicken wings, according to the testimony at a military hearing yesterday. The second day of the hearing in Baghdad brought other disturbing testimony from agents investigating the March 12 deaths in Mahmoudiya. Spc. James P. Barker, 23, told investigators in sworn statements that he and Sgt. Paul E. Cortez, 23, took turns sexually assaulting the 14-year-old and that former Pvt. Steven D.

Oakland, Calif. -- This was supposed to be the week Randy Moss got more involved in the offense. Instead, two Raiders who had struggled in the first three games helped Oakland to its first win. Maryland alumnus LaMont Jordan ran for 126 yards and a score, Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals and Oakland's defense had a late goal-line stand yesterday to lead the Raiders to a 19-13 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. With Moss going up against the team he's tormented for 10 touchdown receptions in five wins in his career, it figured he'd have a breakout game.

When it was his turn to perform, Cortez Holmes looked and sounded like an experienced and confident hip-hop artist. Sporting a red T-shirt and blue jeans, Cortez, 12, bobbed his head to underscore the beat. "I shine like Afro sheen, and dress in all black 'cause I don't want to be seen," he rapped as his peers cheered him on. Cortez's performance was part of an innovative program designed to help youths gain a sense of confidence in expressing themselves through art workshops. He joined more than 15 other youngsters, most of whom are under foster care, for weekly rap and poetry lessons.

Liam Ge scored the first goal, and fellow striker Agyemang Boateng added the second goal and assisted on the last. The Lightning (1-2)
