A 45-year old homeless man is facing first-degree murder charges in the beating death of another homeless man who was found in woods near Laurel Race Track on Thursday, according to Anne Arundel County police. Adalberto Rodriquez-Tolledo was found walking along the 8800 block of Gorman Road in North Laurel on Friday afternoon at about 5:30 p.m., police said. He was arrested on an unrelated warrant, but under questioning, police said he implicated himself in the beating death of Flavio Garcia, 55, of San Pedro, Jicayan Oaxaca, Mexico.

A Memorable Place Belize stops the clock and turns it back By Herb Smith San Pedro on Ambergris Cay, Belize. From Baltimore, it takes three flights, so it's not easy to get to. But this island is well worth the trouble. Belize is an increasingly popular destination for ecotourism, and San Pedro is one of its many highlights. Imagine a multiracial and cultural community at peace with itself and protective of the environment. That's San Pedro, a town of about 4,000 people perched on a 25-mile-long island protected by the second longest barrier reef in the world.

If you were under the impression that the "decider" in this country is the president, the Congress, the courts, the voters or some combination thereof, you would be wrong. Turns out, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff calls the shots, or so he claimed by unilaterally waiving federal conservation laws and a federal District Court order because they were impeding construction of a fence along the Mexican border. Hard to say which is worse: that an appointed official would make such an outrageous power grab or that he did it to advance a monumentally foolish and wasteful project that cries out to be stopped.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Like a magician pulling a card from his sleeve, the Orioles seemed to pull Daniel Cabrera from the ether two weeks ago to bolster their tattered starting pitching staff. Cabrera made the jump from Double-A Bowie and became the first Oriole to win his first two major league starts since Rocky Coppinger did it in 1996. Cabrera takes the mound today against the Anaheim Angels, cradling a tiny 1.42 ERA in his giant fingers. Every team wishes it could be this easy. But go back and trace Cabrera's roots and there's an important story there.

Nobody in the Orioles' organization suffered more over the last few weeks of the season than first base coach Carlos Bernhardt, and it had nothing to do with baseball.Hurricane Georges had torn through the Dominican Republic, leaving one of the poorest nations in the Caribbean in ruins. Because phone lines were down, Bernhardt had no way of reaching his family in San Pedro de Macoris. He tried not to assume the worst as the remaining games passed by without word from his wife and three children.

SAN PEDRO DE MACORIS, Dominican Republic - In the poorest barrios here, in the places where goats and stray dogs sift through piles of garbage on the side of the road without being disturbed, the houses are often held together with little more than rusty nails and prayer. Electricity and running water are not unheard of, but more often than not, they are the stuff of dreams. Children without shoes race across the uneven dirt roads, and laundry on the fence gets dried by the wind and the sun. It is here where Sammy Sosa is still loved.

STILL AGILE and sure-handed at 53, Jesus "Pepe" Frias, a major-league infielder for nine years, is having another errorless day. The Dominican Republic native and current resident is taking hard-hit grounders at the Friendship Playground ball field in Washington, D.C., where 200 youngsters, ages 5 to 12, are in summer camp. From the baselines, they watch every move of the nimble Frias, whose weeklong stint at the camp is sponsored by Elementary Baseball, a Washington nonprofit devoted to inner-city literacy and sports.
