The hotels in Ocean City aren't the only places packed for the Fourth of July weekend. Baltimore County's animal shelter had no vacancies yesterday, thanks to an unexpected contingent of pit bull terriers. And it couldn't have come at a worse time. The pit bulls, a dozen of them, were taken to the Monkton shelter after they were seized during a raid of a Woodlawn house yesterday morning. They filled every open dog kennel at the shelter, leaving staff scrambling to find homes for other pets.

The problem:: Graffiti on a community sign in Northeast Baltimore remained despite a request to 311 for removal. The back story:: Robert Walshe has been paying attention to graffiti lately. As coordinator of the North East Citizens on Patrol, he's been riding around his Waltherson neighborhood with volunteers such as Louise Harmony. Together, they spotted several graffiti incidents and reported them to Baltimore's 311 service online in June. The graffiti had been there for weeks, but Walshe noted that the 311 site said the markings would be removed within three days.

MONTEREY, Calif. - Does the jilted former host of National Public Radio's Morning Edition ever listen to the show anymore? What a silly question. "Every morning," Bob Edwards said in a recent telephone interview. "Where else am I going to get my news?" And there it was - the famous voice, as thick and smooth as a chocolate milkshake. After 25 years, NPR switched that voice off in spring 2004. Now Edwards' career is up in the air, you might say, but in a good way - on XM Satellite Radio.

DAN Rather drew lots of cheers last month when he chastised himself and TV news directors from around the country for presenting fluff instead of news. We are cowards, he said. "We all should be ashamed."He was right -- and the news directors listening to his speech knew it. They gave him a ringing round of applause. They gave even more cheers when Walter Cronkite rose later at the same meeting to say the same thing.The setting was Miami Beach; the occasion was the annual convention of the Radio and Television News Directors Association, and Mr. Rather was commemorating the famous speech the revered Edward R. Murrow had made to the same organization 35 years ago.This time, the news directors were in a contemplative mood.

Some of us went to the Charles Theatre the other night to see Good Night, and Good Luck, a movie about a distant era when people still had faith in reporters. This is only part of the problem today. Now reporters have to have faith in ourselves. Good Night, and Good Luck is about Edward R. Murrow's famous CBS broadcast on the scurrilous tactics of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Murrow was lucky. He could break out the video and let McCarthy hang by his own outrageous bile. Today, the political Machiavellis are smarter.

Once you get past the confusing title, "5" is one of the more interesting projects to come out of the Theatre Project's collaborative relationship with Towson State University.Written and directed by Maravene Loeschke, who chairs the TSU theater department, "5" focuses on a group of women who graduated from high school in 1965. However, the title doesn't refer to the mid-point of the '60s or to the number of characters in the show -- there are eight, one of whom primarily represents the women's younger selves.

ANDY GOLDSWORTHY: RIVERS AND TIDES: WORKING WITH TIME (Special Two-Disc Collector's Edition) -- Docurama/New Video / $39.95 In its own quiet, voluptuous way, this unpretentiously brilliant documentary uses the work of Scottish sculptor Andy Goldsworthy to open up the hidden drama of the natural universe. Goldsworthy's method is to invade an untouched setting, "shake hands with it," sense its ruling shapes and rhythms, and use the materials at his fingertips - stones, leaves, ice - to create open-air forms that illuminate their environment.

Her second husband, Broadway agent and producer Leland Hayward, called her "the greatest courtesan in the 20th century." Truman Capote described her as a "geisha girl who made every man happy. They just didn't want to marry her."Bill Clinton, as reward for Pamela Harriman's prodigious fund-raising for his presidential campaign and for 12 years of raising money for Democrats at dinner parties at her Georgetown home, made this finishing-school product ambassador to France. Now 74, the former mistress of Edward R. Murrow, Gianni Agnelli (head of Fiat)

A Life on the Road.Charles Kuralt.Putnam.256 pages. $19.95. Dispatches from distant places hardly constitute a new genre of reporting, tracing back as they do at least to Homer. Even the "on the road" signature dates back a ways; Jack Kerouac had his version, and so did Bob Hope.Why, then, has CBS' peripatetic Charles Kuralt come t personify so the on-the-road motif? And why, given all the imitators that he has inspired, does his brand of rec-vehicle reportage surpass the fluff and froth of others?
