As the trading deadline approached at midnight last night, the Orioles searched for ways to fine-tune their roster, but the deadline came and went without the team making a deal.According to sources around baseball, the Orioles were looking to add a pitcher -- likely because of the uncertain status of the injured Ben McDonald -- and another hitter.The Orioles called San Diego about right-hander Andy Benes, talked to Detroit about left-hander David Wells and asked about St. Louis right-hander Mike Morgan, Montreal left-hander Jeff Fassero and Chicago Cubs outfielder Sammy Sosa.

The Baltimore school system has extended the deadline for families at 54 elementary and middle schools to apply for their children to receive free tutoring. The school board voted last week to spend an extra $3 million on tutoring for low-income children who attend schools that have failed to meet state goals on standardized tests. The system agreed to the expenditure as part of a settlement agreement with the state, which had accused the system in an audit of misusing federal money for needy children.

The free-agent watch is marked by a series of critical dates, the first of which is Sunday. Either the Orioles re-sign catcher Mickey Tettleton by then, or face competition for his services on the open market.In theory, the deadline is significant for Tettleton too, for if he signs before Sunday, he will retain his rights to free agency the next time his contract expires.But Tettleton's agent, Tony Attanasio, yesterday dismissed those "repeater rights" as a motivating factor in his talks with the Orioles, which are expected to resume today.

"They seem to want a fight. They seem to be miscalculating," said CWA spokesman Doug Thompson.A company spokesman, Dave Pacholczyk, declined to characterize how far apart the two sides were.

THE TIME for procrastination is over: New voters must register by 9 p.m. today in order to cast their ballots in Baltimore's Sept. 9 city primary. Regrettably, tens of thousands of Baltimoreans have not yet registered. These include several thousand 16-year-olds who will reach the required voting age of 18 by the November 2004 general election. Additionally, thousands of ex-offenders have not registered even though in many cases a criminal record no longer disqualifies them. Barbara E. Jackson, the city elections administrator, expects the current total of 281,600 registered voters to grow by only about 2,500 by tonight's deadline.

WASHINGTON -- This may sound vaguely familiar, but an ownership-imposed deadline for settling baseball's protracted labor dispute is just hours away, and there is no sign that the players and owners are close to a settlement.If there is no agreement by 12:01 a.m. tomorrow morning, the owners claim they will declare an impasse and impose their Nov. 17 salary cap proposal. This time, it appears, they really mean it."That is what we're planning on doing," said Atlanta Braves president Stan Kasten.

WASHINGTON - While keeping one eye on the stock market ticker, major corporate chief executive officers and chief financial officers are probably keeping the other eye, with some trepidation, on Aug. 14. That's the deadline imposed on them by the Securities and Exchange Commission to, in the SEC's words, "personally certify - in writing, under oath, and for publication - that their most recent reports filed with the Commission are both complete and accurate....
