Starting today, Sudhir Shah will close his Catonsville convenience store three hours earlier. In the fall, he will lock the door at dusk and only take in customers whose faces he recognizes. The changes, though, will end there. Shah said he won't keep a gun, trusting, instead that something such as the November robbery at his store — in which he was shot in the head and a customer was killed in front of him — will never happen again. "It screwed up my life," said Shah, as he prepared the store earlier this week to reopen on a full-time basis with a communitywide celebration.

WASHINGTON - Reza Pahlavi can tell you all about the militant Islamic tidal wave that washed Osama bin Laden's operatives to the shores of America. He witnessed its beginning in early 1979, as the 17-year-old crown prince of Iran, eldest son of the ruling shah. While much of Iran took to the streets in joyous celebration, Pahlavi flew with the royal family into exile, his father at the controls of their private Boeing 707. Filling the vacuum of power was the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, with his bearded scowl and promises of democratic reform.

Hemant Shah marveled yesterday at how close he came to possibly being the latest Mega Millions lottery winner. Instead, the owner of Mace Liquors in Essex said he learned yesterday morning that one of his customers snatched up the lucky single-winning ticket - and its $26 million bounty - exactly four minutes before Shah. "I'm ecstatic," said Shah, who has owned the store for five years. "I knew deep down that we'd sell one." Shah, 59, said lottery officials called him about 9:30 a.m. to tell him that the winning ticket had been bought at his store, but he doesn't know which customers has it. The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 10, 19, 37, 40 and 48. The Mega Ball number was 1. If the winner opts for a lump-sum payment, he or she could net about $15.2 million, Maryland Lottery Director Buddy Roogow said yesterday afternoon.

Federal agents arrested the owner of a Southwest Baltimore industrial park yesterday on charges that he tried to solve his growing financial troubles early last year by torching his property and filing a bogus $3 million insurance claim. Mahendra H. "Mike" Shah, 58, of Ellicott City was apprehended a day after a federal grand jury charged him in a 20-count indictment with arson, money laundering, wire fraud and other offenses. The indictment, unsealed yesterday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, alleges that Shah collected more than $250,000 from a series of fraudulent insurance claims filed as he was struggling to meet other financial obligations in 1999 and 2000.

Pinak Shah is not afraid to go to new territories. Five years ago, he left his native Bombay, India, for a management job with a technology company in New York. And five weeks ago, he entered a new field: importing Indian foodstuffs and selling them retail. Desi Bazaar, a new Indian grocery on Red Branch Road in Columbia, is a retail store and warehouse that Shah hopes will become a pipeline for dozens of Indian stores and restaurants throughout the state. "We opened the outlet for local people ... to give them good quality, better prices," Shah said.

Galina Artamonova of Ellicott City surveyed the rows of spice mixes at Ganesh Brothers & Grocery, a new store selling Indian food in Ellicott City. "What to buy?" she muttered, almost to herself. Artamonova, who is from Russia, said some of her co-workers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine are Indian, and she has grown to like the highly flavored food of their native country. "I like Indian food," she said this week. "I like spicy." After surveying the shelves for several more minutes, she purchased a box of fish biryani flavoring to use in a seafood dinner that night.

SEATTLE -- So after more than half a century of active meddling - protecting our interests, promoting our values, encouraging democracy, fighting terrorism, seeking stability, defending human rights, pushing peace - it's come to this. In Iraq, we find ourselves unwilling regents of a society splitting into a gangland of warring militias and death squads, with our side (labeled "the government") outperforming the other side (labeled "the terrorists") in both the quantity and gruesome quality of its daily atrocities.

DALLAS - The underground garage is filled with sport utility vehicles and Toyota Camrys now, late-model cars belonging to the lawyers and judges who work in the municipal court building above. But on the morning of Nov. 24, 1963, the parking bay - then under the dominion of the Dallas Police Department - was packed with reporters trying to glimpse the man suspected of assassinating President John F. Kennedy. As Lee Harvey Oswald, who was handcuffed to a police detective, stepped into the glare of television lights, nightclub owner Jack Ruby emerged from the crowd and fired a single bullet into Oswald's stomach.
