About once a week, David Baker loads up his race car and makes the 40-mile trip from his home to an off-road track in Parkton. Upon arrival, he performs a system check before firing up the engine and sending the car zipping around the twisting, turning, hilly dirt track. However, the degree of danger is minimal, given that Baker positions himself in a driver's stand overlooking the track and uses a control box to "drive" his 16-inch, 10-pound radio-controlled racer. "You can fine tune them almost like you would a full-size race car," the 42-year-old Carroll County resident said.

This week starts with Kalabaw coming back from Tribal Council, and Denise realizes she has been to every Tribal Council this season. And Katie's vote for Jonathan has made Jonathan realize that he's not the only one lying in this game. Which, duh, it's "Survivor. " At Tangdang, Mike points out that this day is the same point in the game in "Survivor Australia" that he fell in the fire. I'm sure most of his team is thinking that it might be a good day for him to go home for this season as well.

As the Baltimore County Planning Board prepares for a hearing tonight on a proposal to rezone 12,000 acres of farmland, a prominent citizens group has released a study showing that land with the county's most restrictive zoning is worth more than land with fewer restrictions.The study goes to the heart of farmers' concerns about the proposed zoning change that could reduce the number of homes allowed on the land by 30 percent -- from about 2,300 to about 1,600.Some farmers say the down-zoning proposed by Planning Board Chairman Phillip A. Worrall in the northern section of the county would rob them of their land's equity.

How the heck is Matsing going to compete in challenges with only three people? Back at camp, it's cold and raining, and everyone at Matsing looks depressed. Ooh, they don't have fire. That would add to the depression. Honestly, though, they do have the three strongest players left. I think it would be awesome if they could pull it together and start winning. Russell points out (again) that he's ready to start winning, and that he nearly died for Survivor. I think Denise and Malcolm are ready to win too, considering they were the only ones who have done anything useful at challenges.

The Baltimore County Council is set to vote tonight on four bills that would add stricter development controls, a move that has been cheered by some residents and questioned by others, including a two-time gubernatorial candidate and vinyl-siding manufacturers. Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, a Pikesville-Ruxton Democrat who sponsored the bills, said his goal is to provide for higher quality development that will preserve the rural character of the north county and minimize the impact of new development on existing neighborhoods.

A Baltimore County councilman introduced bills last night to stop developers from building on property being considered for rezoning, ensure the compatibility of new development to existing neighborhoods and provide more protections for rural land. Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, a Pikesville-Ruxton Democrat, said he hopes to eliminate the race against the clock for some developers to win approval for building plans before the council votes in August on its quadrennial comprehensive rezoning cycle.

Let me begin by saying that I am a dog person, to the pointwhere I actually broke up with a woman over a dog once.This was back in 1971, when I was sharing the top half of a dingy house with a 135-pound St. Bernard named Holmes.My girlfriend at the time, the lovely R.C. (not her real initials), did not much care for Holmes.One problem was that if you stopped petting Holmes, she would . . . well, I suppose we ought to clear that up right away.Yes, Holmes was a she. I was not hung up on gender-specific names.

John McGinnis stepped out of his pickup truck and planted his feet in the muddy, ridge-top field with the same determination he has used to plant soybeans and corn for the past 30 years.Spread before him was a rural panorama of browns and greens under a gray winter sky. Across the narrow country road that borders the field, the forested terrain dipped to touch the Third Mine Branch Run, then climbed back up to meet another open brown patch of farmland riding the top of the next ridge."It just don't make any sense to put golf courses and a housing development on that," Mr. McGinnis said.

We start out the night with Matsing and their ever-shrinking tribe. What would happen if they just keep losing? Would they have to sit our more and more of the other two tribes in challenges? Nah, you would see (well, we wouldn't) producers scrambling around in the background to figure something out. Now that Roxy is gone, Russell realizes that he needs to ally himself with Denise because of the bond between Angie and Malcolm You know, watching the credits I realize that, except for the people on Matsing, I don't know who half these people are yet. Maybe if someone else finally loses, we'll spend some time with the other tribes.

Previously, the tribes were dotted with past contestants and minor celebrities, and I somehow managed to mix up Brandon and Colton from "Survivor: One World. " How I managed to mix up Brandon and his Crazy with Colton, I don't know (but thank you to Todd Mallett for pointing that out to me in the comments!) Zane thought he was being all sneaky-like and good with the strategerizing when it totally wasn't necessary, and ended up going home. Back from Tribal Council, Russell is dealing with the feeling of actually having been on the chopping block.

I was born about five decades too late for the "Golden Age" of flight - that period in the 1930s when the public's fascination with aviation rivaled its interest in the Internet today. Had I been around then, I'm sure my life would have centered on a leather jacket, goggles and the open cockpit of a speedy pylon plane. But my name isn't Lindbergh or Doolittle, and so my lust for the wild blue is focused on airplanes of a much smaller scale. They're radio-controlled(RC), and every Sunday at a field in Parkton, I put one through its paces in the company of other RC pilots, including Bill Patalon, a Northrop Grumman engineer who does double duty as my father and best friend.
