A 38-year-old Harford County woman who is accused of planning to have her husband killed this month for $5,000 is being held without bail in the Baltimore County Women's Detention Center on attempted-murder charges, police said yesterday. As down payment in the suspected murder-for-hire plot, Baltimore County police said, the Pylesville woman paid one of their informants $42 and two tablets of Percodan, a painkiller. Rebecca Lynne Fender of the 600 block of St. Mary's Road was arrested and charged shortly after meeting the police informant Friday, allegedly to arrange her husband's killing, according to court records.

Moments after Charles R. Erdman's old Ford pickup truck had been struck by a sport utility vehicle on Erdman Avenue in East Baltimore, he stepped out to talk to the driver. Standing in front of the auto parts shop where he worked, all Erdman wanted was the man's insurance information, police said. But the driver of the green Ford Explorer refused - police said the vehicle had a stolen license plate - and hopped back into the SUV and accelerated. He drove into the 65-year-old man, whose head and arms hit the top of the truck's hood.

Clarence Leo Fender, 81, a musical instrument pioneer whose electric guitars found favor with such performers as Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Albert Lee and Roy Buchanan, died Thursday of natural causes in Fullerton, Calif. A self-confessed tinkerer, Mr. Fender brought out a solid-body electric guitar that was to become the much-coveted Telecaster between 1949 and 1951, then found widespread success with the introduction in 1954 of the Stratocaster, hailed as a near-perfect fusion of electronics, technology and design.

David Fender isn't sure how much longer he can keep up the fight. For six years, the Fallston indoor track and field coach has lobbied the Harford County Board of Education to sanction the sport as a recognized athletic forum in the county. And every year, his proposal is turned down by the board - a pattern that is beginning to grate on Fender. "It gets discouraging, having talked with people who have tried prior to me," he said. "You fight for a while until you don't have much left.

With all the dismal reports about the home real estate market, don't lose track of something critically important: Mortgage interest rates have been falling quietly but steadily for weeks, and are now just above their lowest level in half a year, barely a percentage point above 40-year lows. New mortgage applications are up sharply, the number of pending home sales is up, the national economy continues to expand moderately, and the rate of unemployment just declined again - to 4.6 percent.

In an ideal world, Robin Williams would have been born a cartoon. After all, merely human roles rarely give him the chance to free-associate, deliver dozens of accents and leap through his imagination the way no regular person ever does. And, let's face it, when he starts doing his shtick offstage, he occasionally wears out his welcome. With his outsize personality, it's little wonder that Williams has a serious affinity for the animated world. When he took the role of the Blue Genie in 1992's Aladdin, Williams crafted one of the most indelible characters in animation history.

Area police responded to dozens of accidents around the Baltimore region yesterday as holiday travelers and eager shoppers converged on rain-slick roads on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. A rush-hour collision involving a gas tanker truck and a sport utility vehicle that required the rescue of the driver -- as well as a five-car collision on the Baltimore Beltway -- were among the accidents that had officers scrambling. "Most happened in shopping districts," said Sgt. Sam Worsham of the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

WASHINGTON - Rest assured that getting into traffic accidents is not the recommended method for pre-game preparation, but if the Washington Wizards can get the kind of play out of Etan Thomas that they did last night after his accident, they might get him a demolition derby car. Thomas was involved in a slight accident on the way to MCI Center, then wrecked the Cleveland Cavaliers with a career-high 18 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, pacing the...
