After almost a year of lawsuits, contentious twists and backroom negotiations, an elderly Columbia couple have regained ownership of their home of almost four decades. "I am happy," said Arthur S. Rochee Sr., whose home had been stripped away over a delinquent property tax bill of less than $2,400. "It can only happen in America, where I am getting my house back." Rochee's attorney, William E. Erskine, of the firm Reese & Carney, LLC, announced the settlement. "This is an extremely fair and equitable resolution to this unfortunate set of circumstances," Erskine said.

A Hyattsville man who was legally drunk when he crashed his Jeep into the back of a car on a Route 100 ramp in Howard County this summer was convicted yesterday of auto manslaughter. Marcos P.S. Amaya, 34, also was found guilty of 17 other alcohol and driving offenses related to the crash July 13 that killed Nadine Younis, 4, and seriously injured her two sisters, Nouran, 6, and Yara, 19 months. Howard Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure, who tried the case, noted Amaya's high blood-alcohol reading - 0.19 - as well as evidence that he had been driving erratically for several miles and that he apparently never braked to try to avoid the Younis family's car. Amaya's actions showed "a disregard to the safety of others," Leasure said.

Tommy Erskine is a flier without wings, a racer who sits and waits, an enthusiast for an ancient sport that is fading in Baltimore.He breeds racing pigeons. The fact that they always come home, and nobody really knows how, fascinates him. He is full of facts about them."The cock pigeon may be the only male animal that produces milk for its young," he said, and waits for that to strain your credibility."A well-conditioned pigeon can outfly a hawk in a heartbeat," he said, adding that pigeons are smart enough to seek the proximity of crows, which attack hawks in flocks as dolphins attack sharks.

When Dominic Wiker went to visit Ann Erskine for their first date in February 1997, he thought she owned the horse farm in Damascus where she was living. But he had misunderstood that part of the conversation when they had met two weeks earlier while out with a group of friends. "I put him to work on the first date mucking stalls and that cleared up the confusion pretty quickly," says Ann, who helped take care of horses as part of her rent on a tenant cottage. But Dominic was not concerned.
