A Hagerstown man pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges of making a false statement by falsely certifying that precast concrete his company manufactured for two high-profile State Highway Administration projects met government standards. Santos Eliazar Rivas, 32, admitted guilt on three counts as part of a plea agreement with the U.S. attorney's office in Baltimore. According to prosecutors, Rivas was the director of quality control for Frederick Precast Concrete at a time when the company delivered precast structures for the Woodrow Wilson Bridge replacement project and a project on Interstate 70 that were weaker than they should have been because corners were cut in the manufacturing process.

A 911 DISPATCHER listened last week as Maria D. Rivas argued with her husband Xuang Ky "Tony" Tran. As Mr. Tran loaded and cocked the .357 magnum handgun he had bought that day, the dispatcher tried to persuade Ms. Rivas to leave the room. She tried to keep the woman talking, to buy time, but to no avail. "Stop it! No! No! No!" were the last words the dispatcher heard before two "pops" of gunfire. When police kicked down the door of the couple's second-story condominium in Columbia, Mr. Tran had already shot his wife and himself.

Although Lt. Col. Steven L. Jordan was listed as "chief" of the interrogation center at the Abu Ghraib prison, one of his subordinates testified yesterday that Jordan was not the person he went to when he had questions about interrogating prisoners. Instead, Chief Warrant Officer Edward J. Rivas III said he sought answers from Col. Thomas M. Pappas, who commanded the military intelligence brigade based at Abu Ghraib. Jordan faces a dozen charges stemming from the sexual and physical abuse of Iraqi prisoners and is the highest-ranking American and the first officer to be charged in the Abu Ghraib investigation.

HOUSTON - A shrewd, well-organized master criminal appears to be the leader of seven escaped Texas prisoners suspected of killing a policeman, authorities said Thursday - and they fear the escapees might be planning a violent showdown with police. A Christmas Eve robbery in Irving, in which Officer Aubrey Hawkins was slain, bore marked similarities to the El Paso robberies that landed escapee George Rivas in jail in 1994. Rivas, 34, whom El Paso prosecutor Marcos Lizarraga once called "the most dangerous man in Texas," had led a group of thugs posing as security guards in at least a half-dozen robberies.

Those "Support Our Troops" car magnets bother me for some reason. I think it's the implied rebuke - that since I'm driving around without one, I'm not supporting the men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan as much as someone who has undertaken the heroic and self-sacrificing act of slapping a magnet on his or her car. So I had to laugh when I spotted one variation, which encouraged, "Support the magnetic ribbon industry." Just how hollow the support-our-troops sentiment has become was on full display at a hearing at Fort Meade yesterday, where testimony concluded in the case of the highest-ranking soldier charged with criminal violations for his role in the Abu Ghraib detainee abuse case.

Novey, a Baltimore-based psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who trained future colleagues in her field and had a passion for cooking and the arts, died after going into cardiac arrest Friday at the Wesley Home in Mount Washington. The longtime Baltimore resident was 90. Dr. Novey was known for her keen insight into even the most difficult cases, a likely result of her early years spent as a social worker, colleagues said.

MEXICO CITY - Through the working-class neighborhood of Pueblo Quieto, a thin, tall man stops to talk with shop owners and housewives in doorways. "Hi. I'm Lopez y Rivas," he says, handing a flier to an old woman in an apron. "I'm running for delegation chief. I hope you'll favor us with your vote." Gilberto Lopez y Rivas is a congressman from the center-left Party of the Democratic Revolution. He is running for chief of Mexico City's most expansive "delegation," or borough, Tlalpan, home to about 700,000 people.

County officials opened the new Riva Area Park at a ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday. The 68.8-acre property, on Riva Road near Central Avenue and the community of Summer Hill Farm, was acquired by the county in 1997 for $650,000. State grant money was used to pay for the land. The county then spent $3.2 million in local capital improvement funds to construct three multipurpose fields, three ball fields, two basketball courts, a playground and rest rooms. For more information, call 410-222- 7315.

Riva, a waterfront community west of Annapolis, is home to more than 1,000 families. It has its own post office and its own fire station. But it's never had a baseball field -- until now. After a decade of work, Riva is getting baseball diamonds, soccer fields and basketball courts. Bulldozers began pushing and smoothing red dirt a few weeks ago, and the groundbreaking for Riva Park is scheduled for the middle of next month. When the park is finished next year, the more than 300 children who play on Riva teams won't have to wait for practice time on fields in neighboring communities.
