You made me cry. Of course I made myself cry, too. Knife wounds, insect attacks and tandoori-hot temperatures aside, my favorite story involved me and you and the outdoors. In July, during one of the hottest stretches in a summer of hot stretches, I compressed a season's worth of state park visits into one week. Twenty four parks, seven days, from Deep Creek Lake to the Atlantic Ocean. The stunt was to promote the Maryland Park Service's "Park Quest" family challenge, the best idea to come out of Annapolis since the coining of the state motto: "Manly deeds, womanly words.

Durbar II has been shocking people for more than a century. When the 3-year-old, French-bred, American-owned Thoroughbred won England's prestigious Epsom Derby in 1914, despite going off as a 20-1 long shot, the genteel world of English horse-racing was turned upside-down. When he made it out of war-torn Paris in the early days of World War I, at a time when many horses were being pressed into military service, he again bucked the odds. And today, when people hear that this famed Thoroughbred is buried in Bel Air, on the grounds of Harford Community College - well, it's safe to say that's news to most Harford County residents.

A Memorable Place On a freighter plying the South Pacific By Cecil Kuhne SPECIAL TO THE SUN Jumping on a cargo freighter in Tahiti for the Marquesas Islands -- the archipelago some 800 miles to the northeast -- isn't exactly the Love Boat. But it is a classic South Seas journey through a turquoise-blue sea to some of the most remote and unspoiled islands on earth. The Aranui plies this French Polynesia route monthly, taking freight to the islands and returning with its cargo holds full of copra, the dried coconut meat from which soaps, oils and lotions are made.

The Scunny Memorial Paddle, which ran from Sept. 16 to 21, turned out to be even less fun than Christopher Furst, a marketing director for Power Plant Live, thought it would be. And the novice kayaker didn't go in expecting the 175-mile kayak trip was going to be a day at the beach. "In all honesty, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I've played every sport, baseball, football," Furst said, "but this was sheer endurance, paddling eight hours a day in an uncomfortable position.

More than 300 days had passed since Matt Rutherford pushed out on his 27-foot boat from Annapolis after a quiet send-off. More than 27,000 miles had been navigated to help Rutherford become the first sailor in history to go solo and nonstop around North and South America. As much time as Rutherford had to think about what kind of welcome he would receive, the 31-year-old, who overcame a childhood fear of the water, did not give it much thought. "I didn't know what to expect," Rutherford said, standing on the dock about an hour after coming ashore.

It's big, it's bold and it's already being called the most lobbied bill in history.Bill Clinton put his presidency on the line last night with a health care reform proposal comparable in its reach to Lyndon B. Johnson's War on Poverty. That war ended in stalemate, and plenty of critics are hoping for an even worse fate for the Clinton health care reform. Considering the vested interests threatened by the plan and the sheer size of the health care industry, the chances that any final plan will closely resemble the initial proposal are slim.

What people go through to live their lives — war and terror, disease and pain, poverty and hunger, long journeys across continents and oceans, loss and heartbreak — always leaves me awed and humbled. You hear a story, like the one I'm offering this Christmas, and you want to raise a glass to that thing we call human spirit. Milla Dawt Hniang, who travels with crutches and guitar, has it in bunches. It has taken her 20 years past the age when her parents thought she would die. She's a Burmese-born singer-songwriter about to release her first CD and send more music of the American country-pop variety — think Taylor Swift — into the world.

Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia has always been a regional treasure for theatergoers, but the current production of "Memphis: The Musical" proves that no smash hit is too big for Toby's to produce with pizazz. The theater's intimate in-the-round venue brings the action so close to audiences that they become part of it, expanding the emotional impact into new dimensions. With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan, "Memphis: The Musical" ran on Broadway from 2009 to 2012, and captured four Tony Awards in 2010, including best musical.

Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" opens the 55th season for Prince George's Little Theatre, and the production at Bowie Playhouse qualifies as the troupe's strongest start in recent memory. This is inspired theater by every measure, starting with the choice of the largely autobiographical 1968 work by Simon, which traces his adolescent years, to begin what became known as his Eugene Trilogy. Perhaps because of frequent stagings of "The Odd Couple" and other favorites at regional theaters, Simon is sometimes dismissed as a master of the one-liner but lacking in substance.

What do you do when the small speedboat you're using to escape illegally from Cuba runs out of fuel partway through the Gulf of Mexico? The vessel rocks uncomfortably atop large waves. You haven't eaten in days. You know what could happen if you're caught. You fear the worst. "The first thought was, 'Wow, I went through so much just to die on the edge,'" Dariel Alvarez, 25, recalled recently in Spanish. "I was scared to come so far and fall short. " Two years later, the Triple-A Norfolk outfielder is one of the Orioles' rising position prospects, combining a steady glove in the outfield with an electrifying plate presence.

Surrounded by strangers in a dusty border town just south of the United States, 17-year-old Hilda Lopez bowed her head to pray - a rare moment of peace in a journey that had allowed little time for reflection. Since leaving Guatemala three weeks earlier, she had entered Mexico on foot, traveled day and night in a truck crammed with dozens of people and slept outside, huddling next to flea-infested cows for warmth. Now Lopez was about to enter the U.S. illegally, joining a surge of unaccompanied minors who have fled Central America in recent months.

ARLINGTON, Texas - From the first time Nelson Cruz stepped into the batter's box at Camden Yards this season, he has heard that unmistakable sound from the home crowd - the long, steady chant of his last name. With the success he has had so far this season, the Orioles outfielder has heard the cheer many times, but he still takes it in each time. It's a reminder of the twisted road he has taken through his major league career, a journey driven by hard work that has now landed in Baltimore, where he's emerged as one of the top offensive players in baseball.
