Orioles manager Buck Showalter and pitching coach Mark Connor suggested Friday that the two leave early.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Luke Clausen had the right area and the right technique in the record-setting Bassmaster Classic on Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and they paid off with a wire-to-wire victory and a $500,000 check. The youngest fisherman in the 51-angler field, Clausen, 27, of Spokane Valley, Wash., won the biggest payday in B.A.S.S. history - and his first B.A.S.S. title - by slowly fishing a six-inch, junebug-colored Mann's Hardnose plastic worm along the bottom of an area with bedding fish and 3-4 feet of water in Lake Kissimmee.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - The lights that flickered out during the violent passage of Hurricane Charley only came back on a week ago, blue tarps still cover holes in many roofs and haphazardly uprooted trees litter the sides of many roads. But Kissimmee has moved on from thinking about Charley to worrying about what could be a bigger, stronger storm - Hurricane Frances is moving inexorably through warm Atlantic waters on a path that could once again buffet this central Florida town with powerful winds and torrential rains.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Simply put, there is no experience in your life that will come near it.We are talking dogfighting -- F-16 fighter-pilot style -- 10,000 feet above the mere mortals crowding Disney World, 15 miles away.Sitting in a sleek Italian race car of a plane with a real F-16 instructor next to you, you have the chance to own the skies -- at least the area approved by the FAA for Fighter Pilots USA.Arriving at Kissimmee Airport at 11:30 a.m. for a 1:30 p.m. takeoff, we are met by Cathy DesMarais, wife of chief pilot Lt. Col. Tim "Toast" DesMarais, who, during his 23-year Air Force career, was an F-16 instructor.

KISSIMMEE -- Steven Shaver is describing himself as a Pentecostal married man who allows no R-rated movies in his St. Cloud home. And yet here he is, in a meeting room at Osceola Heritage Park, volunteering to host a pair of party girls -- one of whom was involved in a notorious X-rated sex-tape scandal. Shaver is presenting his down-home credentials at a casting call for The Simple Life 2, the second incarnation of the Fox reality show that places coddled Los Angeles socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in a rural, small-town setting.

SO YOU WANT to get away, you and the significant other, and you're looking for a place to unwind, have a little fun, maybe take in a few sights. The Caribbean? Please. The whole frolicking-in-the-surf, sipping-the-fruity-drinks thing has been done to death. Europe? Sure, that's fine - if you want to run into every other mope from Baltimore with a Ravens T-shirt and Nike sweats clicking a Kodak Instamatic. No, what you need is someplace exciting. Someplace off the beaten path. And I've got just the place: Uzbekistan.
