For 38 years, drivers heading west on Baltimore National Pike may have noticed the International House of Pancakes restaurant sitting at the corner of Johnnycake Road. Karen Rocha started working there 15 years ago. Drivers passing the restaurant today won't see the familiar IHOP logo. They will see a sign that reads "Shirley's Family Diner." But Rocha still works there. She owns the place. How that familiar IHOP changed to Shirley's Family Diner is a classic American story of one woman hoisting herself up by her bootstraps.

Brandon stares ahead, listless, his eyes tinged with pink. His family doctor has found swollen glands and, peeking inside the 2-year-old's ears, claims to see Simba.No response."You're too sick to care, aren't you, sweetie?" Dr. Alex Rocha asks the sad towhead. He turns to Brandon's mother, Dawn Goodman: "He's got tonsillitis," the doctor says.A few minutes later, Dr. Rocha is talking to an 80-year-old farmer about the arthritis in his leg and stops to examine his sandpaper hands."Look at these mitts," he tells Howard Leister, who recently painted 12,000 feet of white fence.

As a single mom working 60-hour weeks, Gloria Rocha is feeling the heat. A recent promotion came with added work but no added salary, boosting her stress levels but doing nothing for the family budget. That budget already is badly stretched, as she carries more than $4,000 in credit-card debt and estimates she spends more than she makes in a year. She wants to make sure her 14-year-old son, Joshua Septoski, can play hockey - a $2,800-a- season sport. And footing the bill for his college in a few years is a huge priority.

How many stories have you read about a big chain store or restaurant moving into an area and taking over where a mom-and-pop place used to be? Well, here's one story where just the reverse has happened. In 1968, the International House of Pancakes opened on Baltimore National Pike in Catonsville. Shirley Stein was among the waitresses there. Stein continued working there over the years, eventually becoming a manager and helping to open a couple of other IHOPs around Baltimore. Fifteen years ago, Stein's daughter Karen Rocha joined her on the job. She, too, eventually became a manager, then general manager there.

CUAJIMALPA, Mexico -- More than two weeks have passed since investigators unearthed a decomposed body on a horse ranch where Raul Salinas de Gortari, the elder brother of the former president, used to jump his thoroughbreds. But they have made no progress in learning who the dead man is or how the body arrived at the site.When Attorney General Antonio Lozano Gracia announced the discovery Oct. 9, he said he was confident that the body would be the "conclusive" evidence to show that Raul Salinas had ordered the assassination in 1994 of a prominent politician, Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu.

Three men are shot, two of them fatally Three men were shot, two of them fatally, in two apparently unrelated incidents early yesterday in Baltimore, city police reported. The latest reported killing occurred about 5:30 a.m. when two 19-year-old men were shot in the 400 block of N. Chester St. in the city's Middle East neighborhood, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman. Moses said Davon Hines of the 2300 block of E. Madison St. died less than an hour later at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where the other victim - whose name was withheld as a witness - was treated and released.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - The mother of convicted double murderer Scott Peterson tearfully implored a jury yesterday to spare his life, saying he could still do positive things in prison and that execution "would be such a waste, irreversible." Jackie Peterson, who suffers from respiratory problems, looked frail and spoke for 45 minutes in a soft but steady voice that cracked at times. She paused occasionally to wipe tears from her eyes, and testified without breathing from the oxygen tank she normally uses.
