GRANTSVILLE -- The formal stone cross stands on a moss-touched pedestal by a rushing stream -- a picture of serenity in the deep woods.It's a picture seen more often this time of year. Spring brings out more hikers. They cross Poplar Lick Run several times on the Poplar Lick Trail, but when they see the cross, the simple beauty often stops them. It recalls Gen. Stonewall Jackson's last words: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the trees."Close up, though, the memorial reveals the unexpected.

Nothing extra The Orioles' game against the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday didn't go past regulation because Cesar Crespo wouldn't allow it. Crespo, summoned twice from the minor league camp, singled with two outs in the ninth inning to score Terry Tiffee and give the Orioles a 6-5 victory in Jupiter, Fla. Crespo's hit came against major league veteran Russ Springer. Still struggling Freddie Bynum has been regarded as a leading candidate to fill the last spot on the 25-man roster, but he went 0-for-4 with one strikeout, lowering his average to .135.

MANY people have strong feelings for their cars. The direction those feelings take depends usually on how well the car runs.When someone pays several thousand dollars for a mound of metal and plastic that does nothing but consume gas and leak motor oil, those strong feelings tend to be negative. People have been known to swear, kick and make crude gestures to their automobiles on the occasion of flat tires, failure to start and other common auto hazards.On the other hand, there are some people who love their cars.

Adam Jones has proven his toughness all season long, playing through pain in both of his wrists, starting in center field in every game but one this season -- all while being hit by pitches 10 times, second most in the AL. But Orioles fans - and manager Buck Showalter - had to cringe during the team's five-run sixth inning in their 5-3 win over Boston on Wednesday night. That's when Jones lowered his left shoulder on a play at the plate and collided full force with Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

An indoor shooting range is still looking for a home in Carroll County. News that the pending lease between Eldersburg Business Center and Top Gun Indoor Range Inc. was cancelled means Carroll's gun owners will not have any new ranges -- indoor or outdoor -- to practice their hobby any time soon.Numerous attempts by the county to locate an outdoor public range have been unsuccessful. Proposed sites at county-owned property at Hoods Mills landfill and Union Mills as well as state-owned land at Morgan Run Natural Environment Area were all rejected because of strong community opposition.

The project manager at the former Patterson Park High School in Highlandtown stood atop a roof terrace and said, "This is not a cookie-cutter property. " That's an understatement. Shaffin Jetha and Chuck Nale, officials of Focus Development, gave me a tour of the Southeast Baltimore landmark it has taken me 50 years to visit. I wasn't procrastinating; I just never got an invitation to view this under-recognized Art Deco-style school that once accommodated 3,200 students. It is now being made into 138 apartments.

Conventional wisdom holds that the Cold War is over. But is it? Consider the implications of Secretary of Defense Cheney's recent commitment to keep large numbers of American troops in South Korea, on the grounds that such defenses are required because North Korea is at the threshold of nuclear capability.Cheney didn't say so, but the implication is clear: The presence of 40,000 U.S. troops currently based in South Korea would deter North Korea from striking its neighbor with nuclear bombs.

PROBABLY NO one thought George W. Bush's election as president would doom the U.S. Navy's use of Vieques Island for target practice. The military, most Republicans and Puerto Rican demonstrators expected the opposite. President Bush's decision that the Navy go elsewhere within two years is cheering to many Puerto Rican citizens of the United States who found the bombardment of the island a relic of colonialism. It is welcome to the fewer than 10,000 persons, many of them fishermen, many of them hearing-impaired from years of bombardment, who live on Vieques, which is east of Puerto Rico but within the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
