Over the past few decades, 40 percent of Maryland's forestland has vanished. If the current rate of tree-cutting continues, the state will lose roughly one-eighth of its forests by the year 2020. The result would seriously damage the environment. Trees help control erosion and serve as a kind of sponge to soak up pollutants before they reach the water table. Trees also act as a buffer to protect water quality in lakes and bays -- and that's especially important for Chesapeake Bay cleanup.

Things started out slowly this spring for lefty T.J. McFarland, whom the Orioles had taken from the Cleveland Indians in December's Rule 5 draft. As part of that draft's requirements, the Orioles need to keep McFarland on the 25-man roster (or disabled list) throughout 2013 or will have to offer him back to Cleveland at half his original purchase price. McFarland allowed hits, a run and a walk in each of his first four outings of this spring, making it look like the 23-year-old would be on his way out soon enough.

WASHINGTON - Inadequate computer information caused most of the Navy's missiles to land wide of their targets during an allied bombing raid against Iraq two weeks ago, defense officials said yesterday, noting that the problem has been fixed with a "minor adjustment." A team from the Navy and Raytheon Co., the Massachusetts defense contractor that builds the Navy's AGM-154A "Joint Standoff Weapon," reached that conclusion late last week, said defense officials, who requested anonymity. The missile's software did not give the 1,000-pound weapon enough time to adjust to wind conditions, these officials said, causing half of them to strike wide of the target, most by more than 100 feet.

Howard County Executive James N. Robey released a draft of the county's 2000 General Plan yesterday that proposes lower housing goals, stronger environmental protection and revitalization of older communities. Although it calls for no expansion of public water and sewer service to accommodate additional growth in the western part of the county, it does leave open the possibility of expansion in "isolated occurrences where minor adjustments may be appropriate," according to a news release issued yesterday.

WASHINGTON -- The last obstacle in the way of the new U.S.-Soviet nuclear arms deal -- and a Moscow summit meeting -- was a 620-mile difference of opinion about how far a certain Soviet missile would have to travel in multi-thousand-mile tests.The U.S. position carried the day.When Soviet technicians forwarded their proposed acceptance Wednesday to President Mikhail S. Gorbachev in London, the Soviet leader wasted no time agreeing. Neither, of course, did President Bush.He and Mr. Gorbachev had lunch and announced that the final barrier to a nuclear treaty had been surmounted and that they would meet in Moscow at the end of the month, when they would sign the pact.

Joe Carter would have predicted months ago that Toronto teammate John Olerud would be making a charge at a .400 batting average this late in the season, if anyone had bothered to ask.Sure, the glorified theories about weight distribution, positioning the hands on the bat or pitch selection might all apply to Olerud, the Blue Jays' first baseman. But so might Carter's thesis."He got married last winter. That's it. I'm serious," Carter said with a loud laugh the other night.But when Olerud, a .269 career hitter going into this season, sits down and thinks about what has propelled him to one of the most serious challenges to the hallowed .400 mark in 10 years, he agrees with Carter.
