The Sparrows Point steel mill was auctioned off Tuesday, but no one - not the company, not its attorneys, not the union - would say who bought it. The auction for the Baltimore County mill was held in the afternoon, according to a source familiar with the proceedings. No details were filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court late Tuesday, and it may be several days before any appear there. The timing isn't clear, let alone the results, because owner RG Steel has been silent for days outside of court filings.

New Orleans. -- Whenever animals are in the news it's usually something bad for them. Here in Louisiana, squads of assassins were stalking the swamp to kill the nutria rats who are eating the state, when the flood came. The nutria got a reprieve but now the nightscopes are back on the guns and you can hear the pop-pop as the fur flies.Nutria aren't good for much: They taste like they look and their coats haven't caught on. There is talk of turning their bones into casino chips but there is such a surplus of human bones the rats will just have to wait.

Hastening home with her little boy to escape the storm Friday evening of last week, Mrs. Uriah Guy, whose husband is the farm manager on the place of Mr. A. Leslie Lewis, near Towson, fell on the road near the Eudowood Hospital. Some of the patients saw her fall and notified Dr. Martin F. Sloan, who had her removed to the hospital.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- William Kennedy Smith's lawyers spent five hours trying to pick apart the testimony of the woman accusing him of rape, challenging her account of the attack and repeatedly prompting her to break down in tears on the stand.Defense attorneys pressed the woman on her spotty memory of the Easter weekend evening she says she was attacked. How, they wondered, could she recall ordering a Caesar salad and Cliquot champagne but not remember whether she met with N NTC bartender friend or where she took off her shoes and panty hose?

Late last year, a woman went to Benjamin Chavis Jr., the executive director of the NAACP, and threatened to sue him for sexual improprieties.Chavis, a man who has stood up to bullies and brutes all his life, knew exactly what to do:He agreed to pay the woman $332,400 out of NAACP funds to keep her mouth shut. Then he kept the deal a secret from his board of directors.But is that what you would do if you were the subject of what Chavis now calls "unfounded charges" and "false and slanderous allegations"?

ATLANTA -- He is 40 years old. They have been paying him to play baseball for 23 years now, more than 13 of them in the major leagues. Larry Andersen has seen just about everything that there is to see in this game. Twice.So why was he so nervous?Seven organizations, eight stops -- from Cleveland to Pittsburgh to Seattle to Philadelphia to Houston to Boston to San Diego to Philadelphia again. He's pitched in big games before -- playoffs, World Series, the whole thing. He's a funny guy. He's an experienced guy. And on a team with a young pitching staff, Andersen's role as a wise head/big brother/teacher for some of them has been noticed by the people who sign his checks, noticed and appreciated.

In a span of a year, the John Carroll girls volleyball team went from a member of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference to one of the favorites to win the A Conference. That kind of transition could inflate any team's ego, but Patriots coach Greg Cullison is determined not to let it. Disappointed with the Patriots' effort in practice Monday, an agitated Cullison dismissed his team early, intent on sending a message. Whether Cullison's move was the driving force behind No. 11 John Carroll's three-game sweep yesterday over visiting Chapelgate was not completely clear, but the Patriots certainly gave their coach little to fret over.

Simon Says:The jerk down the street who never took down his Christmas lights last year is looking pretty smart right now.*;)Has anyone ever really said: "Ahem"?Let me get this straight: The Saudis won't let our troops wear American flag patches on their uniforms, won't let them hoist the American flag, are able to censor what magazines they get, can determine sexist rules of behavior for our women soldiers and can decide who gets to visit the troops and who can't.Do you think maybe we should let the Saudis defend their own oil next time?

Who's the best linebacker in the Atlantic Coast Conference? Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen says it's the Terps' E.J. Henderson, but what he'd really like is to have North Carolina State's Levar Fisher playing along with Henderson. Because if Henderson is No. 1, Fisher is not far behind. "I'd like to have him and E.J. on the same team," Friedgen said. "It'd be a pretty good inside-outside combination." Henderson, a leading candidate for ACC Defensive Player of the Year, and Fisher, last year's winner of that award, will get to watch each other work from opposite sidelines when their teams play Saturday night at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, N.C. With a victory, No. 10 Maryland would clinch the ACC title.

The Orioles reached a tentative agreement last night on a one-year contract with free agent Jeff Conine, returning the veteran to the city where he had played for five seasons. The deal, which likely will be announced today, is worth approximately $1.75 million with incentives that could push the former Florida Marlin's contract to $2 million for the 2006 season. "[Conine] is a guy we targeted all along," said Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo. "When we talked about the chemistry of the ballclub, we wanted him to be back.

A 13-year-old Old Mill Middle School-North pupil told police that a stranger grabbed her, carried her into the woods and tried to sexually assault her yesterday morning, prompting school officials to issue a warning to parents of other young walkers. The incident shook parents and children in the neighborhood, where another Old Mill teen-ager, Lisa Kathleen Haenel, was stabbed to death a decade ago during her morning walk to school. That crime is unsolved. "These things are few and far between, but it only takes one time to end up like little Lisa," said parent Debbie Long, adding that she has never let either of her daughters walk to or from the campus of Old Mill middle and high schools in Millersville.

SNOW HILL -- A week after a deadly propane gas explosion ripped through the serenity of this rural county seat, killing one man and injuring 17 people, residents are beginning to ask tough questions about the town's aging underground utilities. Many in the town of 2,400 are taking notice of what they say is the telltale smell of leaking propane that has been common around town for years. "I think everybody is just stunned, and they've had time to think about it, to be concerned," said Ruth Young, whose 87-year-old mother, Sadie Dryden, remains in a Salisbury hospital, recovering from injuries suffered in the explosion that demolished her Bay Street home.

The cable from Israel reached Ilene Ellis at her home in Owings Mills and consisted entirely of three sentences to sum up her husband's life and the overlooked pieces of the history of a nation constantly on the edge of some cliff.``Greatly saddened by the news of Al's death. He was a great patriot and the best of friends. He will be sorely missed.''It was signed: Moshe Arens, Israeli minister of defense.In another time, Arens had been Al Ellis' commanding officer. He knew about Ellis' efforts smuggling guns into Israel in the war for independence half a century ago, his service in the Israeli military, his development of a remote pilotless aircraft that helped overcome Soviet MiGs in 1982, and he knew why Ellis had been awarded the Israeli Defense Prize.

What, exactly, is death?Greg Palmer isn't much more sure than you are, but it isn't for lack of trying.In this literary adaptation of his well-received PBS miniseries, the television features reporter-turned-author ponders the questions we'd rather not think about -- at least until we absolutely have to.But "Death" isn't a philosophical discussion of how to view life's end or the hereafter. Nor is it a cross-cultural examination of death rituals. Nor is it a tome that explores circumventing death through special regimens or the ultimate cop-out -- cryonics.

Fueled by an indulgent Alan Greenspan and glimmers of recovery in overseas economies, the Dow Jones industrial average roared to a record high yesterday, erasing more pain from last summer's dive.The Dow rose 214.72 points to close at 9,374.27, more than 36 points higher than its previous record close, which came July 17. In four months, the Dow has plunged 19.3 percent on fears of a global economic meltdown -- and then clawed its way back up."Remember that disaster and deflation and depression that we talked about last summer?"
