The animal cruelty trial for the twin teens accused of setting fire to a pit bull stretched into its fourth day Wednesday as prosecutors tried to show that inconclusive lab tests on a dog collar did not rule out the use of flammable substances. Lawyers for the suspects Travers and Tremayne Johnson called a fire investigations expert to cast doubt on Baltimore police lab tests that showed unknown substances on the collar. The tests did not reveal the use of common "ignitable liquids," such as gasoline or propane.

Mr. Boh is back. What's that? You don't know Boh? You must not be from around here. Mr. Boh, no first name, is the grinning, winking mascot of National Bohemian beer, or Natty Boh. The beer - which was, as its advertising jingle once boasted, "brewed on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay" for more than a century - hasn't been made in Maryland since 1996. (It's now owned by Pabst Brewing Co. of San Antonio.) But Mr. Boh persists, adorning everything from T-shirts to luxury condos in Baltimore, where he was born just after the repeal of prohibition.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- The first of the entourage to arrive at the Beverly Hills Hotel was Camilla Grace, wearing a short blue dress, fluffy blue slippers and a dog collar studded with flashing, battery-operated lights.Next came Trudy Truelove, in a dress cut just low enough in the back so that the top of her extensive tattoo work could be seen. She also wore one of the flashing collars, as did Craig Inglis, whose tuxedo shirt was so ruffled it would have embarrassed a matador.Half a dozen more twentysomethings emerged from cars near the front entrance of the fabled landmark, all wearing the collars.

Any jurisdiction that tries to pass cat licensing laws runs into howls from feline owners who say cats and collars weren't meant for each other. Cats are free spirits. It's cruel to make them wear a license.Here's what's cruel:Last year county animal control workers killed 4,783 cats, most of them strays. A good number of the strays probably belonged to somebody. Only 100 found their way home. Without tags, there's no way to identify them.Cats should be licensed, for their safety and ours.

FOR A HUNDRED bucks or so, you soon may be able to find out what your dog has been trying to tell you all these years. As if you really wanted to know. A Japanese toy manufacturer plans to market its "pet translator" in the United States this summer; it's a radio microphone that attaches to a dog's collar, and when Fido barks, the sounds are translated and show up on a hand-held receiver. Trouble is, examples of the phrases dogs say, according to the company, include "How boring," "I can't stand it" and "Please play with me more."

If your family is like mine, your kids talk and dream about being a contestant on their favorite TV game show. You can come close to making their dreams a reality and put your family "in Jeopardy" when you create your own personalized version of the popular game show.To make the game board, cut off the flaps of used envelopes and glue the envelopes in four vertical columns on a sheet of tagboard, leaving enough space at the top of each column for the names of the categories. (Or, pin the envelopes to a large bulletin board, if you have one.)
