They called in private investigators and a helicopter pilot, a psychic with an angel etched into her door and a pair of pet-tracking dogs. But of all the methods that Rhonda Fish and Brian Davis used in the search for their missing Yorkshire terrier, it was the most ordinary of occurrences that led to Reilly's return yesterday. One dog barked at another. Six days after the not-quite-3-year-old pup dashed away while out for a walk near a ravine in White Marsh, he was reunited with his owners.

The Metro train that runs along I-795 was closed down for about two hours, and southbound I-795 was closed intermittently, said Chuck Jackson, state police spokesman.

KENSINGTON - The jagged angle of the train cars, the fallen tree limbs, an ominous drop of the embankment surrounding sections of the track - all seemed to foreshadow tragedy aboard the Amtrak passenger train that derailed yesterday. But when bystanders and rescue teams reached the muddy ravine surrounding the track, they found dazed passengers who, for the most part, were able to crawl out of the cars relatively unharmed. Some cried from fear, shock or injury, but many of the passengers broke down because they were glad to be alive.

They live behind enemy lines, in places like Fells Point, Federal Hill and Canton - otherwise ordinary people with ordinary jobs and ordinary allegiances. Until Game Day. That's when they put on their Sunday best - a football cap here, a jersey there - and head for the local sports bars to watch their charges and flaunt their true colors. Paint them burgundy and gold, not purple and black. They are Redskins fans in Ravens country. Tonight, their worlds collide as Washington hosts Baltimore at FedEx Field in Landover.

Shrugging off a chilly morning drizzle, hundreds of volunteers slogged yesterday along the muddy fringes of waterways in central Maryland packing trash bags with debris in the annual spring stream cleanup. "You can give as much money to environmental groups as you want, but the way you really make a difference is to go out and get your hands dirty," Towson University sophomore Jenny Green proclaimed as she and her brother, Ryan, harvested food wrappers, bottles and other debris strewn along the steep banks of a campus ravine.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - They had a playoff party at the Kroger grocery store here Thursday. You didn't hear a foul word. You didn't feel the tension of football fans frothing for a Sunday afternoon bird kill. You didn't sense that familiar desire to watch the home team kick someone's sorry rump, whip them six ways to Sunday and drop their quarterback's stinking carcass off the dock for crab feed. No. They were just having fun with their Tennessee Titans. Would they say an unkind word about Baltimore?

When Ravin Chase walked into the Randallstown High gym a year ago, she presented Rams girls basketball coach Anthony Knox with perhaps the biggest challenge of his career. A 6-foot-1 forward with a strong, physical inside presence, Chase brought an element to the Rams that could instantly boost them over .500. She also brought something that could have unsettled the growing chemistry that made the Rams a team on the rise. Not because of her game, her personality or anything similar. Simply because she is Knox's sister.

There is a ravine outside the Ukrainian city of Kiev, a ravine called Babi Yar, that holds within its soil the traces of a hideous crime. The place also stands as a weighty indictment against hate. No wonder so many people have wanted to make Babi Yar disappear. The first attempt came in 1943, when the retreating Germans tried to destroy all traces of nearly 34,000 Jews murdered there in the course of two September days in 1941. In the late 1950s, Soviet authorities, annoyed with calls for a memorial to Babi Yar's victims and with the implication that the Germans had plenty of Russian helpers in their effort to exterminate Jews, ordered the ravine turned into a lake.
