More than eight years and at least two aliases later, Bryan Anthony Hale is back in jail in Howard County after failing to appear in Circuit Court in December 2001 after police seized 75 pounds of marijuana from his Sykesville home. Hale was extradited to Maryland last week after being identified through fingerprints following an arrest March 13 in Austin, Texas, on charges of driving under the influence and using a fictitious name, Jason Taylor Beam. His bond of $50,000 was revoked.

A runaway goat that sparked a school closure, rammed a car, leaped several fences to evade apprehension and triggered plenty of buzz in the Sykesville area for nearly a week has been captured and is resting comfortably at an animal shelter in Westminster. Nicky Ratliff, executive director of the Humane Society of Carroll County, said an animal control officer found and subdued the goat - a 100-pound ram with black fur, brown horns and symmetrical white markings on his face - late Thursday afternoon after a resident called in to report a sighting.

WHEN CONGRESS told immigration authorities to find and deport thousands of illegal immigrants who had skirted deportation orders for years, even decades, the move understandably received wide public support in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. But instead of hundreds of immigration officers sweeping the country in search of 370,000 fugitive absconders, only 180 were assigned to the imposing, if not impossible, task. Three years later, the number of absconders is greater - 465,000, including 8,507 in Maryland and 9,373 in Washington, D.C. The Department of Homeland Security still does not sufficiently fund and staff the fugitive apprehension operations of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)

More than 300 people banned from owning guns were able to buy them last year because the state police were overwhelmed with background check requests, police said Wednesday. People with histories of mental illness or convictions for violent misdemeanors, felons and fugitives were able to obtain and keep guns for three months or longer before state police reviewed the sales, according to records released by request to The Baltimore Sun. Maryland State Police finally cleared the backlog of background-check requests last week that began more than a year ago and once stood at more than 60,000, leading to months-long delays in investigating thousands of firearm transactions.

Tina Brown's New Yorker continues to make and break news.This week's issue is illuminated by two strong pieces that suggest, like the best journalism, that with all its resources, Hollywood can't match the real thing.Lucinda Franks' ambitious, detailed investigation of former fugitive Katherine Ann Power makes "The Fugitive," either the movie or the TV series, look tame. The piece portrays both a flawed, vengeful and vindictive legal system and the grotesque legacy of warped and ruined lives in the wake of the Vietnam War.James B. Stewart's "Gentlemen's Agreement" in the same issue is more intriguing in its way than the movie "Philadelphia."

I closed my eyes, inhaled gently and imagined hard, but the Timonium traffic din quickly short-circuited the conceit that placed me at the Inner Harbor. How silly; maybe more than most, I knew the lovely nutmeg scent wafting downwind from the McCormick plant two miles north hadn't perfumed the downtown air for over two decades. On Dec. 8, 1988, the McCormick Spice Company announced it would abandon its landmark Inner Harbor building and the Rouse Company would tear it down. The lawsuit I filed and the "Demolition Makes No Scents" campaign I spearheaded for Baltimore Heritage quickly turned legions of citizens into historic preservationists.
