FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. -- The Orioles will get on a charter flight and head north tomorrow morning, leaving Fort Lauderdale Stadium behind for another year. At this point, they expect their aging spring training site to look the same when they return next February. Orioles executive vice president John Angelos said yesterday that while plans continue for the renovation of the 45-year-old, 8,340-seat stadium, it may be unrealistic to expect the project to be ready until spring training 2009.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Call him the man of 101 Social Security numbers.Dogged by gambling debts, William Desadora of Fort Lauderdale schemed to rake in $360,000 of other people's money.First, he got hold of the Social Security numbers for 101 people. Then, he filled out tax returns for all 101, purchased a few post office boxes, and waited for Uncle Sam to send him refunds.Checks started rolling in, and he cashed at least one for $19,000. But Desadora's scheme turned sour when a broker, suspicious of his large investment, called police.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- NEXT MONTH, hundreds of thousands of college students will besiege sandy shores and snowy slopes around the country to celebrate the rites of spring. But just a handful will head for this beach resort, which for 35 years was the spring-break capital of the world.That is just fine with local officials and most business owners, who say they could not be happier, even though it means the loss of $140 million generated by spring break."You can get so addicted to that kind of money that you never ask at what cost," said Nicki E. Grossman, a commissioner of Broward County, which includes Fort Lauderdale.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Treasure hunters believe they have discovered the legendary "Lost Patrol" -- five World War II Navy bombers that disappeared without a trace 45 years ago and strengthened the myth of the Bermuda Triangle.If accurate, the find in 700 feet of water 10 miles off Fort Lauderdale would solve one of aviation's greatest mysteries and provide a long-awaited explanation to survivors of the five pilots and nine crewmen who lost radio contact and vanished on Dec. 5, 1945.It also would suggest a tragic irony: that the Navy pilots were almost within sight of their home base when they apparently ditched their planes in high seas.

When 69-year-old William E. Bozman Sr. awoke with a gun pointed at his head, then fatally shot the intruder dead inside his Perry Hall home last year, it appeared he had put an end to a violent home invasion. But Baltimore County police concluded that the 2008 attack on the towing company owner was not random. This week, authorities charged Bozman's son with setting up the robbery at his father's home on Chapel Road. The twist adds a new dimension to the case, but a spokesman for the Baltimore County Police Department said he had no new information to add and could not describe how homicide detectives linked the man who was killed to the victim's son. William E. Bozman Jr., 44, was arrested Tuesday on a fugitive warrant in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and is being held without bail pending extradition to Maryland to face charges that include conspiracy to commit armed robbery, burglary, assault and using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime.
