A judge threw out a criminal charge Tuesday against a Crofton man accused last summer of likening himself to a "joker" and threatening to blow up co-workers. The case raised alarm in the wake of a mass shooting in Colorado but ended quietly after prosecutors were unable to connect the allegations to a specific crime. Police seized guns and ammunition from Neil Edwin Prescott's Crofton home after authorities said he called in threats to a Prince George's County business. He was eventually charged with a single count of telephone misuse, which the judge threw out Tuesday.

A 41-year-old transgendered Baltimore woman who was at the center of a landmark Supreme Court case more than a decade ago has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for trying to falsify a death certificate to avoid being prosecuted for identity theft. Dee Deirdre Farmer, a convicted thief who also goes by the names Douglas C. Farmer and Larry G. Prescott, pleaded guilty last month to obstruction of justice and misuse of a death certificate. She had been released from prison in February 2005 on a Baltimore County case by a judge who was sympathetic to the prisoner's failing health.

Britain's deputy prime minister told a Baltimore audience yesterday that his country regretted its part in the African slave trade. He called on other nations to redouble efforts to combat modern forms of slavery. Deputy Prime Minister John Leslie Prescott made his remarks at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, where a major exhibition about slavery in Maryland is on view. "We recognize the active role Britain played in the slave trade," Prescott said, noting that millions of African slaves were forcibly transported to British colonies in North America and the Caribbean during the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries.

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- The newest recruits in the federal government's wildfire prevention program toil all day in the blazing sun and rarely need a break. They also make dandy sweaters. Angora and Nubian goats -- 600 of them -- have been trucked 175 miles from the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona to Prescott National Forest. Their assignment is to chomp on the scrub brush that stokes small fires into roaring infernos. "They're lean, mean, eating machines," says Mike Creach of the U.S. Forest Service, who is overseeing the six-month experiment.

The Ravens brought back special teams standout Prescott Burgess on Tuesday. It was the sixth time Burgess has been added to the active roster since the team drafted him in the sixth round of the 2007 draft. He has been waived three times in his career, traded once and placed on injured reserve twice in his five NFL seasons. Contrary to popular belief, Burgess does not live in an RV that remains parked outside the Castle at all times. A player the Ravens have to have but can't stop getting rid of, Burgess has an interesting story, one that is a great example of what life in the NFL is like for players who have permanent residence on the roster bubble.

PRESCOTT, Ariz. - On a ridge above this desert town, low-slung houses with killer views cling to the rock. One slope is covered in lush, green trees. The other side is a mass of twisted, charred sticks. In the world of backcountry firefighters, this is the wildland-urban interface, or "where the trees meet the eaves." With more and more frequency, it is a zone where they are forced to do battle. In Prescott and elsewhere around the country, the line of demarcation gets longer as more people move beyond the suburbs for privacy, better views and bigger homes.

Prescott Burgess, a sixth-round pick, was the second linebacker taken by the Ravens in the NFL draft in April, selected just two rounds after the organization chose Antwan Barnes out of Florida International. A two-year starter at outside linebacker for Michigan, Burgess impressed observers yesterday when he tackled running back Willis McGahee, forcing a fumble. What did you see on that hit of McGahee? The ball carrier was right there. I just had to make a name for myself and show them that I'm going to make my presence [known]
