The lightening takeover of large parts of Syria and western Iraq last week by Sunni Muslim extremists has totally scrambled U.S. efforts to deal with a burgeoning conflict that threatens to engulf the entire region - and the situation got worse over the weekend when the insurgents announced they had murdered some 1,700 Shiite soldiers captured in the areas they control. The challenge for the Obama administration is that there are no good options to protect our immediate interest in halting the insurgents' advance that don't also work at cross-purposes to our long-term policy goals there.

Keri Sirbaugh's father shakes in his seat, struggling to talk without crying. Twisting his beefy hands into a knot, he shrinks down in his wicker patio chair. Tears leak from beneath his dark sunglasses. The big man is crumbling again."Please," he gasps. "Tell people, the least little thing -- anything at all -- if you know, please call the police. Please."It has been three weeks since Bill Sirbaugh drove in a panic to his daughter's apartment at the end of a dead-end street in Northeast Baltimore and found her body dumped in a gloomy gulch of woods 40 footsteps from her door.

A Baltimore police officer was sentenced to six months of home detention on Thursday for lying on a search warrant application to raid a house in Canton. The target of the search, David Esteppe, says Officer Adam Lewellen conspired with Esteppe's ex-girlfriend to raid his home in the 3100 block of Foster Ave. in March 2012. Esteppe has filed a lawsuit against Lewellen seeking monetary damages. The search by Lewellen and other officers turned up a gun and what police believed was drugs.

Just a week after the successful conclusion of a statewide fishing contest and a two-year hair-tearing but ultimately rewarding review of management policies, it seemed as if the fisheries community was finally getting its act together. But Monday night's hearing on proposed regulations for commercial striped bass fishing was a dilly of a performance that was more "Scary Movie" than the second coming of Hitchcock. Where to begin? Take the opening scene, in which a state fisheries official explained that allowing Chesapeake Bay watermen to increase the length of the gill nets they carry on board from 2,400 yards to 3,500 yards was to "help harvesters increase efficiency and improve the ability to catch their daily landing limit in a shorter period."

SALT LAKE CITY - As it turned out, the worst place Apolo Anton Ohno could have been going into the last 50 meters of last night's 1,000-meter final in short-track speed skating was in the lead. Last place, in fact, would have been ideal. Just seconds from claiming his first Olympic gold medal, Ohno got tangled up and undercut by China's Jiajun Li, causing the skating equivalent of a three-car pile-up. Australia's Steven Bradbury, good fortune's man of the hour, casually avoided the carnage and won a race he would have likely finished last in. Ohno finished second, crawling, not skating, across the finish line.

The Lost Painting By Jonathan Harr This is Harr's acclaimed book about the search for a lost painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. He traces the painting's tangled history masterfully, like a suspense writer slipping us the details of a mystery that has held its secrets for nearly four centuries. Critics loved the book, calling it "rich and wonderful" and "an effortlessly educational and marvelously entertaining mix of art history and scholarly sleuthing." Harr's first book was A Civil Action.

"In A Pig's Ear," by Paul Bryers. FS&G. 277 pages. $23The novel begins with a carefully layered, mythopoetic evocation of the wartime calamities afflicting Central Europe, calling forth the specters of Merlin, the devil, Josef Goebbels and Carl Jung all within the first 20 pages.It is, as the title implies, a first-person monologue directed to a pig. The narrator is one Milan Kubanicek, a Czech therapist who had immigrated to Los Angeles in the wake of the Soviet crackdown of 1968's Prague Spring, and then freshly returned to the tangled pathologies of Middle Europe after the revolutions of 1989.

The man who rushed to a Denver airport late Friday night to catch a redeye flight to Baltimore, arriving in town at 6 a.m. yesterday on limited sleep, was slumped on a couch in the Orioles' clubhouse with the worst case of bed-head ever recorded. The look is typical for Eric Byrnes, their new left fielder and No. 2 hitter, a player in desperate need of a nap and a comb. Baggy, faded jeans that barely clung to his hips. A wrinkled brown and white T-shirt. Not an ounce of pretentiousness in his body.

Despite - or perhaps because of - the death of sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel on Monday morning, Goucher will play host to Landmark Conference rival Catholic at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Thursday. Coach Brian Kelly said the Gabriel family has encouraged the team to play the game as originally scheduled. "They're so strong in their faith that they believe there's a plan for Matthew and that he is with God now,” Kelly said on Tuesday night. “Their words to me directly were, 'Matthew would have wanted you to continue to play the game that he loved, and he would want his teammates to continue to play the game that he loved and to continue to do what you do, and that's life, to live life because he lived his life to the fullest.' He's always been a selfless human being, and he will be terribly missed physically.

Andrew Card, the White House chief of staff, is a pretty important guy. You learn that when you read journalist Bob Woodward's new book, Plan of Attack, an investigation of the Bush administration's extensive preparations to invade Iraq. You learn details about Card: that he worked as a lobbyist for General Motors and that his wife is a Methodist minister. You even encounter descriptions of Card's emotions and beliefs, such as those described in a passage in which he "worried that Iraq was every general's dream of war: a traditional battlefield, big complex plans," or another in which he noticed that the Saudi Ambassador, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, had been putting on some weight.

Wednesday night's first-round meeting between No. 4 seed Frostburg State and No. 5 seed Mary Washington in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament is a re-match of a contest that the Bobcats won, 13-11, a week ago. That might be an advantage for Frostburg State, but coach Tommy Pearce said the advantage is more mutual than one-sided. “We get to see them on film against us, but they also get to watch film of us,” he said Tuesday. “So we're both learning from this film, and they're seeing some of the same stuff that we're seeing.
