Meeting and eating a new food can be exciting. The other night at El Hidalgo , a Tex-Mex restaurant in an Elkridge shopping center, I was introduced to tlacoyos. They were Mexican corn cakes ($7) shaped like torpedoes, stuffed with chicken and topped with pico de gallo, lettuce, cheese and a tomatillo-serrano sauce. The two were served piping hot, right off the griddle. Although they were listed on the menu as an appetizer, they were big enough to be an entree. I loved their look and appreciated their corn flavor.

He won an Academy Award, directed a blockbuster hit and worked under George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. But to casual movie fans, Joe Johnston might as well be any other Joe. "I've always said that fame is fleeting, but anonymity can last a lifetime," says Johnston, whose man-and-a-horse tale Hidalgo opened Friday. With a resume that includes the $181 million-grossing Jurassic Park III (2001), Johnston, 53, is one of Hollywood's most respected action-adventure directors. To him, that beats being one of its most visible.

EarthShell Corp., a Lutherville-based maker of biodegradable plates and bowls, said yesterday that it might not be able to meet payroll or pay other bills after tomorrow unless the company can secure more funding from investors. The 14-year-old company said last summer that it was close to turning a corner as a result of new deals with major retailers, but lack of funding has continued to hamper its plans to become self-sustaining by the end of next year. EarthShell said in a statement that it continues to pursue potential investors but does not have funding commitments to carry it past week's end. The company has about 10 employees.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- The Orioles signed outfielder Richard Hidalgo to a minor league deal yesterday, adding another potentially powerful bat to a crowded mix of outfielders and designated hitters. Hidalgo, 30, batted .221 with 16 home runs and 43 RBIs in 88 games for the Texas Rangers last season. "He's a proven major league player," said Orioles vice president Jim Duquette. "It's really a no-risk situation for the club." Duquette said he liked Hidalgo's ability to play all three outfield positions and his power potential.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles have apparently reached a stalemate in their attempt to sign outfielder Richard Hidalgo. The Orioles have offered the free agent, who hit .221 last season with 16 homers, 43 RBIs in 308 at-bats for the Texas Rangers, a minor league contract with incentives, but Hidalgo is holding out for a major league deal. At this point, it appears unlikely that the Orioles, who are intrigued by Hidalgo as someone who could improve their outfield defense and possibly add pop to the lineup, will make Hidalgo a major league offer.

Viggo Mortensen, newly crowned matinee idol thanks to his hunky turn as Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings, steps out from the shadows of Mordor for his first post-Rings star turn, in Hidalgo. And on what does he spend his clout? A B-movie, a corny, old-fashioned horse opera. Hidalgo is a Disney Western about a man, a Bedouin princess, a femme fatale and a painted horse. And a race across about 3,000 miles of Arabian desert, circa 1890. Mortensen plays Frank T. Hopkins, a U.S. Cavalry courier and long-distance horse racer rescued from a life of touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show by sheiks with an eye for competition.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles spoke yesterday with the agent for Richard Hidalgo, and according to sources the outfielder is unlikely to return to the team and ever play for the organization. Hidalgo, who signed a minor league deal with the Orioles last week, left the team Saturday morning, just a couple of days after passing his physical. While the Orioles were in Jupiter, Fla., to face the Florida Marlins, he approached manager Sam Perlozzo and told him that he needed to leave the team to be with his wife, who was hospitalized with an illness.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Four days in an Orioles uniform apparently were enough for outfielder Richard Hidalgo. The Orioles released Hidalgo yesterday so he could pursue offers in Japan, ending a relationship that had a short shelf life. The expiration came as the Orioles were playing the Boston Red Sox in their sixth exhibition game. Hidalgo signed a minor league contract on Feb. 26, but he left the team before Saturday's game in Jupiter, Fla., after learning that his wife was ill. He never returned, and the Orioles never spoke to him. According to executive vice president Jim Duquette, Hidalgo had reservations about the way he'd be used by the Orioles if he made the 25-man roster.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Outfielder Richard Hidalgo took his physical and donned an Orioles uniform for the first time yesterday. "I'm so happy to be here," Hidalgo said before hitting the field. Hidalgo batted .221 with 16 home runs and 43 RBIs in 88 games for the Texas Rangers last season. He was used to being sought after posting big power seasons in Houston. But he didn't receive many offers after his struggles in Texas. "My first time that it took so long to get into camp," he said.

You may kid about the "importance" of the Orioles' Luis Montanez signing, but keep in mind that no team can pursue a major league free agent at this time. It's sign minor league guys or do nothing. And if the Orioles weren't doing anything, they'd be getting ripped all over the place. Each year, they sign these six-year free agents and invite them to spring training. Some of them turn out to be over-hyped (Franklyn Gracesqui). Some bring no hype (Luis Lopez). In the case of Montanez, there's no risk in signing a guy who was the third overall pick in the 2000 draft.

VIERA, Fla. -- With the sides still far apart on a contract extension, Melvin Mora's frustration is increasing, as is the possibility that spring training will pass without a new agreement between the Orioles and their All-Star third baseman. Mora said yesterday that he will be talking in-depth with his agent, Lon Babby, in the next day or two and that among the topics will be his insistence that a deal gets done before spring training ends. It's possible, he said, that a deadline of April 3, Opening Day, is an option, with negotiations halting until season's end. "When play starts, I just want to play baseball," Mora said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- About an hour and a half before his team's 6-3 victory over the Dodgers yesterday at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo greeted Los Angeles first baseman Nomar Garciaparra behind the batting cage. The two exchanged kind words and went on their way. Perlozzo had hoped to have the former Boston Red Sox star in an Orioles uniform this season. He called Garciaparra twice and tried to recruit the free agent to Baltimore. However, the lure of playing on the West Coast, where he is from, was too much, and Garciaparra decided to sign a one-year, $6 million deal plus $4 million in incentives with the Dodgers.
