ANNAPOLIS -- For years, Eldersburg resident Jim Wolff has had big ideas for the bay lynx, better known as the bobcat.His most recent idea: Make it the state wildlife symbol.In a House Commerce and Government Matters Committee hearing last month, Mr. Wolff urged legislators to add the bay lynx to the list of official state symbols, putting it in the esteemed company of the diamondback terrapin, the blue crab, the Baltimore oriole and the Chesapeake Bay retriever."Let's claim the bay lynx as our own," urged Mr. Wolff.

SOUTH FORK, Colo. -- After a few minutes of terrified hesitation, a lynx, a cat not seen in Colorado in more than 25 years, was reintroduced here yesterday.The 18-pound, 3-year-old female was the first of two lynx released on private property in the Weminuche Wilderness area of the San Juan Mountains, and the first of about 50 lynx to be reintroduced this year."They're back," hollered Gene Byrne, a wildlife biologist with the Colorado Division of Wildlife, as a second tuft-eared cat darted across the sunlit snow.

Legislation forcing a Kingsville man to find a new home for his 48-pound Siberian lynx won approval last night from Baltimore County lawmakers. The measure was proposed to end a more than two-year legal battle with Dan Vitilio, who owns the Eagle's Nest wildlife ranch in Kingsville. Vitilio, 47, was denied a permit from the county to keep the lynx, named Puddy, on the property in 2005. He filed a lawsuit, but the permit denial was upheld at several levels, including the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

The Maryland Mania turned over a new leaf yesterday in its brief A-League existence, but except for the positive of playing on real grass in Arnold instead of plastic in Catonsville found only more bad memories.First, the team, obviously dispirited, probably by front-office cash-flow struggles and the departure of a couple of players, came out flat on its new home field at Anne Arundel Community College and lost its fourth 1-0 match.This one really hurt, because it was to the Eastern Conference's other 1-8, last-place team, the Toronto Lynx.

Dan Vitilio shares his birds, goats, lambs and pigs with the school and church groups that visit his Kingsville ranch. Along the way he added Puddy to the menagerie and was told he needed a permit from the government. He applied and Baltimore County turned him down. He went to court and lost. And now lawmakers are considering a bill that would ensure that Puddy - a 48-pound Siberian lynx - has to find a new home. "We've taken every safety precaution," says Vitilio, 47. He's talking about the double-walled cage and the moat that separate the wild cat from the kids.

There was a time when the Orioles used Triple-A as a final gantlet for their finest prospects. But that wasn't so much the case this season, as most of the club's flashiest prospects played elsewhere, and some, such as Nick Markakis and Adam Loewen, reached the majors with little or no time at Triple-A Ottawa. Instead, the Orioles used Ottawa as a holding tank for minor league veterans who could be called up to patch the major league roster in case of injury or ineffectiveness. Starter Hayden Penn was the biggest exception to that practice.

Top pitching prospect Hayden Penn has apparently made his last start this season at Triple-A Ottawa. A day after the 21-year-old pitched eight shutout innings for the Lynx, Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said he doesn't feel Penn needs any more minor league starts. At this point, the Orioles' plan is to call him up when rosters expand Friday and plug him into the starting rotation. Anything after that - such as whom the young right-hander will replace in the rotation, if anybody at all - has not been decided yet. "We'll have to figure out a way to get him in there," Perlozzo said.

Did anyone read David Wells scathing remarks about Barry Bonds? Wells is quoted in a wire story as saying, "He's hit a few home runs off me while he was juiced. Look at him; the man is enormous." And this: "He admitted to taking [performance-enhancing drugs], but not knowingly. I think that's a crock. I would never take something without knowing what I was putting in my body." This is true. Wells knows exactly how many spoonfuls of sour cream go into each crunchy taco supreme. Remember Franklyn Gracesqui, the left-hander who supposedly threw 99 mph in winter ball before reporting to spring training and barely touching 90?

While the Orioles continue to move forward in their attempts to improve next year's team, they've also been busy reorganizing the minor league system by hiring a Triple-A manager, transferring staff members to different levels and eliminating a rookie-level affiliate. Tim Leiper was named the Ottawa Lynx manager yesterday, returning to the franchise he guided in 2002 before spending last season in the Boston Red Sox's system. Leiper replaces Gary Allenson, who is pursuing a major league coaching job. An Ottawa resident, Leiper went 80-61 in 2002 when the Lynx were affiliated with the Montreal Expos - the best record in club history.

Within the next three years, the Orioles could have the major parts of their farm system within a short drive of their home base. The Pennsylvania legislature is expected to approve a bill today that would provide the revenue formula for a $34.3 million stadium in Allentown, a city of 104,000 less than three hours away. The new 7,000-seat ballpark would be the home of the Ottawa Lynx, the Orioles' fan-starved, Triple-A team, sources told The Morning Call of Allentown. The team would relocate in time for the 2008 season.
