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.

PHOENIX -- It's illegal here to shoot a cactus -- or ram one with your pickup or even dig one up without a permit.In Arizona, they take their cactuses seriously. And the saguaro, the tall, spiny, multiarmed symbol of the West, is taken most seriously of all. Mess with one and you may encounter one of the state's squad of plant protectors -- known as the cactus cops.Jim McGinnis doesn't understand why anyone would want to hurt a saguaro, but he has the photos to prove people do. From a file in his state Department of Agriculture office, he pulls pictures of mutilated victims -- saguaros that have been used for target practice, hacked at with machetes or knocked down by cars.

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.

Prepared for the next invasion? It will not be led by foreign terrorists or illegal immigrants. This invasion will come in the form of drones - an American specialty. A judge has just ruled that the Federal Aviation Agency cannot ban from public airspace flying robots or pilotless air vehicles owned by commercial enterprises. This decision means drones will no longer be used primarily for war or border patrols. They will soon become part of everyday life. Advocates anticipate a veritable panacea.
