FORT WORTH, Texas -- Diane Zamora called her former best friend a "liar" yesterday, a Naval Academy officer "inaccurate," and others who testified against her "confused" when they implicated her in the death of 16-year-old Adrianne Jones.Under intense, rapid-fire questioning from her prosecutor, Zamora called a police officer from the nearby city of Grand Prairie to whom she confessed after her arrest "untrustworthy."Zamora, a former midshipman, was arrested in September 1996 after telling her Naval Academy roommates about Jones' killing.

The Carroll County Board of Education got its first detailed look yesterday at an educational approach that divides high school students into broad career academies similar to colleges within a large university - a tactic the county's two new high schools will use and one being considered by Carroll's five other high schools. Although board approval is not required for the structure of individual schools, the five-member panel expressed encouragement yesterday for making the changes with the opening of Century High in Eldersburg in August and Winters Mill High outside Westminster a year later.

This was not a draft pick for numbers fanatics.On the surface, the Orioles appear to have committed an error by taking right-handed pitcher Alvie Shepherd as their first-round choice in baseball's summer draft yesterday.After all, Shepherd's numbers for Nebraska this spring were horrendous. A 2-5 record, 6.57 ERA and 47 hits allowed in 38 innings don't usually excite scouts. But there is a deeper aspect to the story.Shepherd stands 6 feet 7 and weighs 230 pounds. Baseball America ranked his velocity -- his fastball reaches the high 90s -- No. 1 among available college pitchers.
