A temporary airtight enclosure has been erected at the Dundalk Marine Terminal in preparation for the removal of hazardous chemicals taken in January from the freighter Santa Clara I after it lost 441 barrels of poisonous arsenic trioxide at sea in a violent storm.The material is concentrated liquid magnesium phosphide, an ingredient of fumigants used to control pests in warehouses and rail cars. Four 55-gallon drums of the material appeared to be damaged when the ship reached port after the storm.

A popular 20-year-old female leopard that had lived at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore since 1995 was euthanized on Thursday morning after a battle with mammary cancer, according to zoo officials. The leopard, Amari, came to Baltimore with a male leopard named Hobbes when both were 2-years-old, after their parents were killed by poachers. Amari quickly became a favorite of visitors to the zoo, officials said. She and Hobbes, not siblings, lived in an enclosure with a 200-year-old white oak tree, and produced two female offspring together in 1997.

Like kids bursting out the schoolhouse doors for recess, when the Maryland Zoo's 11 chimpanzees were allowed outside Saturday for a rare bit of winter sunshine, they couldn't help, well, monkeying around. They climbed to the very top of the mesh enclosure surrounding Chimpanzee Forrest, hung by one arm and gawked at the goings-on in a nearby construction site. They banged thunderously on the glass window separating them from human visitors, tickled themselves with tufts of grass, and chased one another around the compound as the thermometer rose to a balmy 57 degrees.

Q: I remember reading about a device into which you can plug a removed internal hard drive. Do you have any information and the names of the manufacturer/distributor and cost? Thanks. A: You describe an ever-more-popular hardware product with applications far wider than letting a computer owner plug a hard drive taken from one computer into a new computer. A happy feature of the Windows XP/2000 and Macintosh OS X operating systems is so-called plug-and-play connections that work with standard FireWire IEEE 1394 ports or the much more common USB 2.0 cables.

Two male warthogs, born March 22 to proud parents Kumari and Kajani at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, are up and around and acting just like the little pigs they are. "They're cute," insists Mike McClure, the zoo's general curator, well aware of the warthog's reputation for being ... well, pretty darn ugly. "They already have teeth; they already have their fur coats. They look just like miniature pigs." The two piglets were discovered by zoo personnel at 4 a.m. March 22. These are the first babies for 5-year-old Kumari, who has been at the Maryland Zoo since she was a young warthog herself.

IT'S BEEN a couple of years since Karol renovated her kitchen, and she has pretty much forgotten the incredible hassles involved in the world's longest "simple" renovation project. At least, she's forgotten enough to be contemplating another remodeling job, this one on her antiquated bathroom. It's the sole bathroom in the house, which dates to just after the turn of the century. The bathroom was redone probably in the 1950s, because the bathtub and sink are, um, pink. Not a nice pale pink, but a real assertive '50s pink, like the type of felt skirt that would have a black poodle on it. The room was redone somewhat later, with a dropped ceiling and shower enclosure.

Because of Bert Miller, life has been far easier for thousands of Orthodox Jews in Northwest Baltimore for the last 13 years.It was Dr. Miller who in 1981 spearheaded the creation of the eruv, a special 16-square-mile area in which some of the strict religious rules governing Orthodox behavior on the Sabbath could be slightly relaxed. And it was Dr. Miller who labored strenuously through the years to maintain the boundaries of the eruv and to publish a directory of its residents.In light of that unquestioned record of service and effort, a grateful community never bothered to examine the internal operations of the eruv or to question Dr. Miller's decisions.

THURMONT - In the past, like any other landowner along the Blue Ridge Mountains, Richard Hahn has had his share of run-ins with wild raccoons. At times they have feasted on the waterfowl that reside at his Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo, a 38-acre park often visited by a stroller brigade of moms and their children. Today, though, the zoo expects to open a $2,000 exhibit that will showcase one particular run-of-the-mill raccoon who's typical in every way. Except that he's not. This geriatric creature named Onix enjoyed a long and privileged life as an illicit guest in a rural Washington County rancher before he was caught and hauled off. In recent weeks, he has gained celebrity status among self-described raccoon rights activists and in Internet chat rooms where nature lovers have tried to reunite him with his longtime caregiver.

Crofton residents - who spent their summer consumed with the northern snakehead fish that invaded a local pond - haven't been talking much lately about the lone front-yard fence one neighbor built in violation of the community's rules. Now, the fence is again on the minds of the Crofton Civic Association, the community's governing body. Under an agreement the association said it reached with homeowner Beate Kanamine last year, the fence was supposed to be taken down Oct. 1. It wasn't.
