The final sections of beach at the Assateague Island National Seashore and Assateague State Park have reopened to beachgoers after more than 100 pieces of World War II-vintage ordnance were discovered washed ashore earlier this week. Munitions experts from the Army Corps of Engineers visually inspected North Ocean Beach and southernmost portion of the state park beach and swept them with detection equipment during a two-day search for more unexploded ordnance and debris left behind by the Navy when Assateague was used for target practice.

A 43-year-old Lutherville man was sentenced to 18 months of home detention yesterday for threatening to shoot two county zoning officers who had come to inspect his Falls Road property. Steven L. Galasso entered an Alford plea last month to one count of second-degree assault, acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of the crime while not admitting guilt. He apologized yesterday in court to the two zoning inspectors, who came to his home in March. On that occasion, Galasso loaded two shells into a shotgun and cocked the weapon before yelling at the code enforcement officers to get off his property or get shot, according to court documents.

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.

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.

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.
