Each Saturday, Ted Sophocleus visits the grave of his middle daughter in Woodlawn, catching her up on the news of the past week, tidying up and leaving flowers for her. The ritual brings scant comfort to Sophocleus, a state delegate from Linthicum still mourning the loss of Dina Sophocleus Furrow, who died in July 2005 when she was pitched head-first from her husband's motorcycle into a guardrail on her 38th birthday. A short drive away, Stanley R. Furrow, 41, is in a cell, sentenced April 20 to a year in the Anne Arundel County jail after being convicted of manslaughter and driving his Harley- Davidson while drunk.

A man wanted by authorities in a shooting death in Boston has been arrested in Baltimore after the popular television show America's Most Wanted highlighted the case. Earnest E. Ferguson, 34, who apparently had been working construction jobs in Baltimore and had been wanted for nearly two years, was arrested by the Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force about noon April 16 on Furrow Street in Southwest Baltimore. Two viewers from Baltimore called the TV show's tip line the day after the program aired April 14 with detailed information that placed Ferguson on Furrow Street working in construction, said Michelle Sigona, who is based in Bethesda as the national correspondent for America's Most Wanted.

FOR A few days in early April, the trees on Furrow Avenue in Ellicott City were decorated with yellow ribbons. On April 4, residents on the street found a note in their mailboxes: "My husband, Roger Weaver, has been on active duty with the Maryland National Guard, serving as a helicopter pilot in Bosnia on a peace-keeping mission for the last eight months," it read, in part. "He will be arriving home on Friday [April 5]. We have planned a little welcome home gathering." The note, signed by Becky Weaver, urged neighbors to come "join us for some cake and punch."

SEATTLE -- The Washington state mental health system got an extensive look at Buford O. Furrow Jr. in the months before he admitted to opening fire in a Jewish community center and killing a postal worker in Los Angeles on Tuesday.The experts saw a man who twice slashed his arms so deeply they required stitches, drank alcohol until he blacked out, and espoused a deep hatred for anyone who is not white.Yet, despite lengthy evaluations at mental institutions here, and no shortage of resources, Furrow was never ordered to remain under long-term state psychiatric care.

LOS ANGELES -- Accused hate-slayer Buford O. Furrow Jr. told authorities that, while looking for places to kill Jews, he grew discouraged by tight security at three prominent institutions -- the Museum of Tolerance, the Skirball Cultural Center and the University of Judaism -- but pulled off a freeway to get gas and stumbled upon an unguarded target, the lesser known North Valley Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills.According to a law enforcement source familiar with Furrow's interrogation, the burly white supremacist from Washington state told investigators that he came to Los Angeles with mayhem on his mind, but no intention to shoot small children.

THE CARROLL County commissioners made a bad decision when they rezoned the Rash brothers' Woodbine farm for housing and a golf course. It's sprawl that adds undue pressures for county services already stretched thin by poor planning. But transforming the farm into a subdivision through the comprehensive zoning process does not create the troubling legal precedent caused by the commissioners' earlier decision to rezone the farm outside that process. It's a step in the right direction, even if it doesn't bring the commissioners to the conclusion that makes the most sense.

BUFORD O'NEAL Furrow's shooting spree at a Jewish community center might have come straight from the biblical interpretations of America's white-supremacist movement, but it's not a theology most Christians would recognize.When Furrow walked into an FBI office in Las Vegas on Wednesday and confessed to gunning down five people at the Los Angeles facility and killing a Filipino-American postal worker, he told authorities he wanted his act to be "a wake-up call to America to kill Jews."Even before his chilling statement, the Washington state resident was linked to the country's sometimes-lethal hate movement.

YOUR next-door neighbor just shot up a school/office/day-care center. Any comment?" "I thought he was pretty nice . . . But then again, I knew that his beliefs were way out of line. They were good neighbors, but, well, I got blue eyes, so I guess that helps." -- Meda VanDyke on her neighbor, neo-Nazi murderer Buford Furrow"He used to say, `They're watching me through your satellite dish.' I'd tell him, `No, no, Rusty, no, they aren't watching you.' I tried to convince him, but it made no difference.
