- In the heart of this town on the old U.S. National Road in Western Maryland, a woman leans on the front desk of an 1890s-era hotel, her face a study in mixed emotions. Tina Storey loves her work as office manager of Failinger's Hotel Gunter, the grande dame of lodging in Frostburg with its polished oak staircase, Victorian settees and zillions of artifacts and displays that evoke the history of the so-called "Mountain Side of Maryland. " But she's still grieving the woman who revived the place.

For 11 days last summer, Shawna Gunter worked as a physician assistant, treating 200 patients at a Centreville doctor's office and prescribing medication. But, authorities said Friday, the 36-year-old had no medical training. Federal prosecutors said she got her job with documents that contained errors — including a license with a different last name — and now faces charges of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein called the allegations "very troubling.

"Too Far Afield," by Gunter Grass. Harcourt. 658 pages. $30. The Nobel Prize awarded last year to Gunter Grass seems one of the better literary decisions of those Swedish Academicians. From "The Tin Drum" on, his novels have been meditations on his native Germany, cast in a mode somewhere between symbolism and allegory. Like Germany itself, he prefers other things to realism. Grass always takes an idea and spreads a generous amount of prose on it. This time it's German reunification -- a topic on which he surely should be worth reading.

Crabwalk, by Gunter Grass. Harcourt. 240 pages. $25. Information is the ultimate waste product of our age. Gunter Grass' new novel, Crabwalk, deliberately clutters up its pages with masses of irrelevant detail, as it traces the quest by the son of a woman who survived the torpedoing of a German ship during World War II, to reconstruct the event. But in this ultimate postmodernist novel, the narrator lacks definition, and, like the reader of this book, seems buried in the information he is collecting.

His fifth-inning, three-runhome run off Mount Hebron pitcher Alan Vandeberg turned a 6-5 deficit into an 8-6 victory for the Gladiators.Gunter's homer capped a four-run inning and rescued Glenelg, which had blown a 4-2 lead.

Hartford, Conn. -- The toughest question facing LSU women's basketball coach Pokey Chatman now is: Who's going to replace All-America point guard Temeka Johnson? For some coaches, this might be a difficult problem. But compared with what Chatman had to deal with in previous months, it wasn't a big deal. For example: How am I going to help 23 family members displaced by Hurricane Katrina? Or, how do we deal with the fact that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has taken over our locker room and our arena has turned into a triage center where people are dying?

HAMBURG, Germany -- Once again, German critics are calling for the head of their resident literary lion. So once again Gunter Grass is taking cover.But unlike previous rounds of such intellectual gunfire, the 67-year-old Mr. Grass is this time being targeted as much for his politics as for any literary shortcoming.With his new novel, "A Wide Field," Mr. Grass has become the first serious author to tackle the topic of German reunification, and all the wrenching changes it set in motion five years ago. Judging from the pained rantings of the critics, the wounds are still tender.

Wiley Gunter's is an easy place to like. It has everything a great neighborhood bar needs: super-friendly bartenders, big TVs, walls covered with sports memorabilia and a menu stocked with well-executed takes on familiar bar food. With all that, it's no surprise that around 7 on a recent Thursday night, the place was packed. Groups of friends wearing matching Kickball League of Baltimore T-shirts filled both of Wiley Gunter's two floors, grabbing beers before heading to games near the bar's Federal Hill-meets-Locust Point location.
