Two elementary school students were rescued Wednesday morning by city firefighters after they became stuck in a mound of mud at a construction site near their school, said a spokesman for the Fire Department. Because of their ages, their names were not released. About 8 a.m., the boy, 12, and the girl, 8, were walking along Sinclair Lane near Clareway on their way to classes at Sinclair Lane Elementary School when they entered a muddy area and became stuck several feet from dry land, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, the spokesman.

It's full of used goods, but “second-hand shop” is the last thing you'd ever call Mud and Metal fine craft gallery. As the song goes, at Mud and Metal, “everything old is new again.” Gallery owner Carol Breining, who set up shop on the famed “Avenue” in Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood, specializes in an inanimate form of reincarnation, using hundreds of artists, both out of town and local, to satisfy her clients' desire for recycled art....

If I were new to Maryland, I might think that state Attorney General Douglas Gansler was either a child rapist, a murderer, a crack cocaine dealer or perhaps all of the above ( "Gansler says he made 'a mistake,'" Oct. 24). Mr. Gansler is being vilified as a terrible, irresponsible political aspirant because there was obvious imbibing of alcoholic beverages by minors. But did anyone ever stop to think that if had he had disrupted that beach party in Bethany those drunken kids might have turned on him?

Ever wonder why your neighborhood streams and rivers look so muddy after a heavy rain? A recent survey of construction sites in the Baltimore area found less than a quarter of the exposed soil being worked had been properly protected from erosion. The survey, involving staff and volunteers from 22 different environmental and community groups, found widely varying but generally poor controls on mud pollution being used at building sites in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties.

Rescue crews spent nearly an hour Friday freeing a 15-year-old boy from waist-deep mud in Pasadena, officials said. The teen was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious, but not life threatening injuries, said Anne Arundel County Fire Department Capt. Michael Pfaltzgraff. It wasn't immediately clear how the teen ended up in the mud near Water Oak Point and Old Water Oak Point roads, he said. Crews were dispatched around 1:30 p.m. A technical rope rescue using wood planks was used to free the teen.

Three people allegedly in the midst of stealing copper wiring in Hanover were thwarted when their getaway car became stuck in the mud, according to Anne Arundel County police. Police said the three suspects cut their way through a fence to get to a secluded business in a wooded area in the 7200 block of Park Circle Drive late Wednesday night. They then broke into a fenced storage area and took copper cables from generators. As they were trying to leave, their pickup truck became stuck in the mud and they called a tow truck company.

Happened. "   Ms. Lewinsky affirms that the affair that led to Bill Clinton's impeachment was consensual.

It's a wet night after last week's Tribal Council, and Spencer is pissed that no one told him that they weren't going to vote Tony out. Tony thinks it's because they were toying with him, but the truth is that Kass (and possibly Woo) have figured out that no one likes Tony and they might stand a good chance to win against him in the final three. Tony talks to Woo about the final three, and Tony is thinking about bringing him and Kass (although he's lying about taking Woo because Woo is so darn likeable)

By midmorning Tuesday, Naval Academy Midshipman Kevin Saxton had been awake for eight hours, tackled an obstacle course, survived an endurance run and beat his classmates with pugil sticks. Sweat dripping down his face as he scarfed down trail mix, Saxton said his day at the annual academy Sea Trials was already a success - a sweaty, sandy, muddy good time with his band of classmates in Annapolis. "It's a lot of fun. Pretty physically challenging," said Saxton, a systems engineering major from Grand Rapids, Mich., who aspires to be a Marine Corps pilot.

The five gilded figures of Buddha sat cross-legged under sheets of plastic, lips curved in half-smiles of silent joy. The room around them, however, was anything but silent. A nail gun rattled, a hydraulic lift groaned and a half-dozen Buddhist nuns and monks bustled through in paint-splattered jeans. The Temple for World Peace, Baltimore's first Buddhist temple, opened with a Friday evening blessing ceremony after more than a year of construction and a week of flurried - and damp - preparations.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Arnold Palmer wasn't the only one in trouble yesterday, when the crowd-pleasing legend found himself 91st out of the Masters' field of 93 after play was suspended. Arnie's Army was in danger, too. So was anyone who set foot on Hootie's links club for men on the post-monsoon day they attempted to play 36 holes of golf. A loyal member of Arnie's fabled brigade attempted to cross between the eighth and third holes to get a better view of Palmer as he attempted to make par at No. 3. Instead, the woman's motorized wheelchair got stuck in the mud. Support troops dug out the embedded chair - a great sucking noise emanating from the smelly quagmire.

Some approached the pool of brown water gingerly, jumping in with caution. The more adventurous ran toward it with purpose, leaping in with no hesitation. After all, it was the inaugural Carroll 5K Mud Run. The dirty, muddy water was supposed to be the highlight of the day. More than 500 people took part in the outdoor obstacle course at Freedom Park in Sykesville on Sunday, scaling an 8-foot wall, dashing over a bridge and crawling under stacks of hay. The Carroll 5K Mud Run wasn't as extreme as some other obstacle course races, which are 10 to 12 miles long and include parts where runners endure electric shocks.

Cost to take part is $40 for the 5k mud run; $25 for the 5k basic run; and $10 for the kids' mud run. A portion of proceeds goes to the Freedom Area Rec Council.
