Clinton Wakefield Epps is racing through the woods, sunshine piercing through the dusk, smoky and unreal, heart thumping, hair flying, imagining himself a Confederate infantryman in pursuit of Yankee cavalry.He is rushing forward, out into the clearing -- and there, he's trapped by Union re-enactors. Then it happens: a sudden blow against his neck, paralysis. He is falling, raising his left hand, feeling blood flowing from his neck and struggling to his knees and whispering "Medic."A man pretending to be a Union soldier calls out: "Bang, you're dead."

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.

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.

OFF THE COAST OF BLOODSWORTH ISLAND -- Harold Robinson was crabbing these waters of the Chesapeake Bay about 10 years ago when his fishing boat slammed into something underwater, gouging its keel, hurling his son to the deck with bruised ribs and burying Robinson under an avalanche of crab pots. The 46-foot Chris-Lin had not run aground on rocks or a reef but on another obstacle watermen in this remote section of Maryland's Eastern Shore sometimes face -- the turret of a submerged tank the Navy had been using for target practice.

For more than a century, the military and its various operations have been inextricably linked with the Chesapeake Bay from the Aberdeen Proving Ground all the way to Norfolk, Va., home port of the Navy's Atlantic Fleet. Recently, the Navy advised Dorchester County officials that it intends to resume bombing and strafing Bloodsworth Island, a 5,361-acre piece of unoccupied bay real estate, west of Tangier Sound, and three smaller neighboring islands, which it has owned since 1942 and used for target practice until 1996.

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.
