A man who was operating a mini steamroller that rolled over and trapped him Wednesday afternoon has died, Baltimore County authorities said Thursday. Michael Ray Mathews, 64, of Freeland, was using the mini steamroller to flatten out a pile of dirt when the pile collapsed, causing the steamroller to roll over and trap him underneath, county police said. Another worker at the site, in the 600 block of Belfast Road in Sparks, used another piece of equipment to lift the steamroller so that Mathews could be pulled out. Mathews was taken to St. Joseph's Medical Center, where he later died.

Just when you thought Apple had done enough damage to your wallet, the maker of the hit iPhone and iPad mobile devices may soon be releasing what I'm gonna call a "tweener" -- a mini iPad that's smaller than the original one, but bigger than the new iPhone 5. Engadget and other tech news sites are citing a report in Taiwan's Economic Daily News that says Pegatron, an electronic device manufacturer, snagged 50 to 60 percent of the mini iPad...

Let me say up front that I love my manicures and pedicures. Let me also say I am 83 years old. Somehow, your article "Mini mani pedi" (Aug. 7) struck a really negative chord with me. Where has the women's movement gone when we need it? I had hoped that we were encouraging our daughters to reach for the sky in their pursuits. That developing their minds and their interests to become participating members of our world was what we wanted. Let me also say I am all for looking good and feeling special about yourself; however, I thought we no longer wanted our daughters to strive to be like Barbie?

Has Apple gotten lousy at keeping secrets these days? The tech press is abuzz with speculation that the company which birthed the iPhone and the iPad will be coming out with an in-between device, an iPad mini. The mini is expected to be smaller than the iPad but larger than the iPhone, and presumably go head-to-head against other similar devices from Amazon (Kindle Fire), Google (Nexus 7) and other manufacturers. What's interesting is that Microsoft is expected to unveil Windows 8 later this week, plus its own tablet competitor, Surface, on Friday.

It's just a blip, certainly not something to get overly excited about, but shortstop J.J. Hardy, who has struggled at the plate most of the season, has a modest five-game hitting streak going on right now. After his three-hit performance Saturday, that included his 17th homer of the season, Hardy is batting 8-for-21 (.381) in his past five games. The understated Hardy, who is hitting .232 this season after batting .269 last year, wasn't exactly pounding his chest after Saturday's game.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- In a stark departure from the purple praise that usually accompanies the announcement of a new vehicle, the Chrysler Corp. said yesterday that it would build a mini-van that customers would surely spurn.The vehicle is an electric version of Chrysler's next-generation mini-vans. The No. 3 automaker said it would build the vehicle to comply with a California law requiring that in 1998, 2 percent of the vehicles offered there by major automakers emit no pollution.While Chrysler executives called their mini-van "state of the art" for electric vehicles, they declared that the art was miserable.

This fall, 11-year-old Shayna Slatkin will start middle school. Before her first class, she and her mother will cover all the usual bases: shopping for new notebooks, pencils and erasers - and visiting a spa for a new look. Shayna, who lives in Baltimore, is a client at Salon & Spa Kids, a Pikesville hair salon and day spa that caters to the youthful set. With bright colors and scaled-down furniture, the salon provides a welcoming environment for preschool to high school-age kids, who can relax with a DVD as they get a haircut or lounge in a butterfly pedicure chair during spa treatments.

I am writing in support of the proposal for Symphony Woods which was approved by CA and the county a couple years ago, a plan which would be user friendly and would also preserve the "woods" and park environment. I have been unable to determine how, all of a sudden, we seem to have discarded the previously approved, relatively simple, plan and are now stuck with the Inner Arbor pie-in-the-sky mini-Disneyland proposal (hopefully not a fait accompli) which involves spending an enormous amount of money, as well as destroying the "park" environment.

The latest mini-documentary from San Francisco's Yours Truly is called "Future Islands: Time For the Show," and it briefly captures the Baltimore trio in the lead-up to the release of "Singles" (read my album review here ).  The clip, which you can watch above, was shot in February, about three weeks before singer Sam Herring captured David Letterman's heart. The roughly five-minute piece features footage of the band playing new songs "A Dream of You and Me" and "Singles (Waiting on You)"

One minute, it looked like the Blast was poised to successfully defend its Major Indoor Soccer League championship Sunday. The next - the players' heads were down and the team's season was shockingly over. The Missouri Comets celebrated their first MISL championship in a rematch of last year's title series, claiming a thrilling 6-4 win in the decisive 15-minute mini game that the Blast appeared to have control of in front of an announced crowd of 6,447 at Baltimore Arena. After the Blast tied the series with a convincing 19-4 win in the second game earlier in the night, veteran Adauto Neto (three goals, one assist in Game 2)

Heidi Lieske's business idea came while shelling out more than $300 for a wedding-suitable outfit - for her 1-year-old son. "There has got to be a better way to do this," she thought. Her Timonium company aims to be that option for like-minded parents - people who want to dress their kids in Dior, Versace and other designer clothes for special events without the eye-popping purchase prices. Borrow Mini Couture rents dresses, suits and other outfits for ages 9 months to 4 years, priced between $30 and $99 for a five-day stint.

SOMEONE PLEASE explain car trends to me, because I don't get it anymore. The hot new car right now is tiny, boxy, not particularly fast and seats four adults comfortably only if the two in the back are advanced yogis capable of traveling with their ankles entwined behind their heads. Nevertheless, the Mini-Cooper, made in Great Britain by BMW, will probably be sold out in this area by summer's end. Partly, this is a numbers thing: Only 20,000 will be sold in this country this year, and the two Maryland Mini dealerships, one in Towson and the other in Annapolis, will each be allotted only 300 cars.

The Orioles four All Stars - Chris Davis, Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado -- met with the media before Monday's game. After talking about their All-Star selections, the group was asked about the 21-year-old Machado's defense and, specifically, the play he made Sunday in New York in which a grounder kicked off his glove into foul territory. Machado grabbed the ball and, with his momentum taking him six, eight, 10 feet into foul territory, turned and, on his back foot, threw a laser to first for the out.  The quartet was asked whether that was Machado's best defensive play as a big leaguer - he joined the club last August - and the press conference turned into a mini-roundtable symposium on Machado's glove.
