Baltimore City Councilwoman Helen L. Holton, who pleaded no contest this week to a campaign finance violation, will attend a three-day conference in Palm Beach, Fla., next week at the city's expense. The city spending board voted Wednesday to approve the $1,100 trip for Holton, who will be attending the National Association of Counties conference there from Oct. 13 to 15. Holton pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor stemming from a deal she struck with developer Ronald Lipscomb and bread magnate and developer John Paterakis Sr. Holton asked them to pay $12,500 for a poll during her 2007 re-election campaign, circumventing campaign finance regulations and exceeding the $4,000 cap on donations from individuals during an election cycle.

Think Palm Beach and you think money. That narrow strip of sand and coral that is Palm Beach long has been the playground of the idle rich. They drive more Rolls-Royces per capita than Londoners. Through countless balls and benefits they raise more charity dollars per capita than any other city in the world.But there is another Palm Beach, a much bigger and more varieone. This is Palm Beach County, home of Palm Beach and also North, West and South Palm Beach; Lantana; Hypoluxo Island; Boca Raton; Lake Worth; Delray; and more.

AFTER WATCHING two days of testimony in the William Kennedy Smith rape trial, I've reached one firm conclusion.No, it has nothing to do with guilt or innocence. As a responsible journalist, I leave that to the jury. Besides, the real smutty stuff hasn't come out yet.But I had always heard that Palm Beach, with its many filthy-rich people and their groupies, was a discreetly wild and crazy place.As a student of all things wild and crazy, I listened closely when a witness testified about a joint called "Au Bar."

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - -Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. has known New York Yankees All-Star Alex Rodriguez for 16 years, but the two have not spoken since Rodriguez admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs while playing for the Texas Rangers. But when they do, he has one question. "I really want to know why," Ripken told the audience at the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County's Men's Night Out banquet Thursday. "I'm going to make it my business to find out." Ripken avoided the topic of steroids during his 40-minute speech but was later asked about baseball's black eye. "The steroid era really puts a dark cloud over baseball," Ripken said.

Rep. Mike Pence, an Indiana Republican, put it best recently in the Congressional Record when he spoke in favor of a bill he has fought hard to pass: "As a conservative who believes in limited government, I believe the only check on government power in real time is a free and independent press," Mr. Pence said. "The Free Flow of Information Act is not about protecting reporters; it's about protecting the public's right to know." The bill, which would give journalists qualified protection from revealing their sources in federal cases, passed the House, 398-21, and has strong, bipartisan support in the Senate, where both the House bill and a Senate version are under consideration.

Drought has uncovered what some are calling the most significant archaeological find in Palm Beach County's recent history. Now researchers are in a race against looters and the weather to preserve it. Since March, state and local archaeologists have been studying and collecting artifacts from various sites around drought-ravaged Lake Okeechobee - places where water has receded from the bank, leaving thousands of acres of mud and muck. Researchers have found human bone fragments, tools, pottery fragments and pieces of ceremonial jewelry thought to have belonged to the natives who lived near the lake before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century.

MIAMI -- It felt to some residents of Briny Breezes like the whole town won the lottery. Most of the 488 shareholders in the oceanfront trailer park will become millionaires as a result of yesterday's vote to sell the community of aging aluminum single-wides to a Palm Beach developer for $510 million. But the owners' decision - seen as capitulation to the condo encroachment that has consumed most of the rest of the sun-splashed South Florida coast - was met with as many tears and jeers as jubilation.

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Mark Foley's sudden resignation from Congress sparked a political furor yesterday when Democrats accused House Republicans of failing to respond to initial reports of his sexually suggestive e-mails to a congressional page. The House voted late Friday to turn the matter over to the Ethics Committee before Congress adjourned for the fall election campaign season, hours after House leaders acknowledged that they had known about the e-mails for months. In Washington and Palm Beach County, Democrats tried to broaden the sex scandal by condemning an alleged cover-up by the House majority.
