PITTSBURGH -- Federal investigators say they have found more evidence to suggest that a system to reverse engine thrust may have malfunctioned on USAir Flight 427 but stressed that it was too early to tell what caused the nation's worst crash in seven years.Parts found by investigators indicate that the plane's thrust reversers may have been activated, but officials cautioned that they don't know if this occurred in flight or only when the aircraft slammed into a hillside 6 miles from Pittsburgh International Airport on Thursday, killing all 132 on board.

Go ahead, tell me who's had a better year around here than the Loyola Greyhounds. Adam Jones with the hot start and the new $85.5 million contract? Ray Rice, who gets to prop up his feet and miss team workouts and wait for the Ravens to make him a rich man, too? I'll Have Another with a Kentucky Derby and Preakness win and a shot at the Triple Crown? Me, I'd argue for the 'Hounds, who hit a trifecta of their own and had the kind of year most small schools only dream about.

The Towson women's swimming team will be well represented starting Thursday at the NCAA championships in Austin, Texas. Seniors Meredith Budner, Brooke Golden and Kayla Zeller will be joined by junior Cari Czarnecki in competing for the Tigers on a national stage. "I think we're going to put Towson on the map and show the world that this is a really good swimming program," said Budner, the school's lone NCAA participant for the past two seasons. After competing in the 500-yard freestyle, 1,650-yard freestyle and 400-yard individual medley in the past two NCAA championships, Budner enters this year's meet as the nation's second-ranked swimmer in the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyle races.

Middle River Aircraft Systems has been selected to design and build the engine casings, thrust reversers and other components for a new Chinese commercial jet, work that is expected to bring as much as $750 million to the Baltimore-area plant over the next two decades. The contract could mean dozens of new jobs in Middle River, company officials said, but it also opens a lucrative new market for a plant whose industry - commercial aircraft construction - is foundering. "This is a tremendous strategic step for us," said Michael Chanatry, executive vice president and general manager of Middle River Aircraft Systems.

In this temple of sound,the sounds are speechless speech,the sounds are feeling tones that feel,joined choirs of sound that singtheir messagesinto hushed faces, into the insides oflistening flesh, touched motionlessby sound:within these rhyming walls,inside this shell that rolls in curvingeloquence,beneath the forceful thrust of circlingline on line.To hear such themes as dreamersdream,or clutch wild, giant seas,or smell clean, tumbling air,or laugh at crashing waterfalls,or scream at silent night,inspires the new, allows the old to be.Hearing such themes, we meltin ecstasy.

The thrust of the "Tea Party" movement is fast becoming clear as it expresses it's purposes in party-line rhetoric, such as "We are going to take our country back. " ("Tea party predicts 'storm,'" Sept. 13.) Not unlike the old bigoted anti-gay-rights slogans, e.g. "Take back Vermont," the Tea Party movement shows its true colors to be entirely regressive in nature, opposed to any change from what we have experienced in the past, and rejecting out of hand any progressive hopes for the future of middle America.

The first snowflakes whirled down less than 48 hours after Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was sworn in as Baltimore's mayor. Before a week had passed, two blizzards had walloped the city, dropping nearly 4 feet of snow. Once a reticent legislator, Rawlings-Blake found herself guiding the city through the most massive snowfall in a century. She logged long hours in the cramped, windowless room that serves as the city's emergency operations center and, from a Humvee, surveyed streets studded with stranded cars.

By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, Baltimore teachers ratified a landmark union contract Wednesday that thrusts the city to the forefront of nationwide school reform efforts. After rejecting a similar proposal last month, teachers came out for a second vote to accept the agreement after union leaders and the city revised the document to reflect educators' concerns about evaluations and pay-for-performance provisions they said hadn't been clearly spelled out in the previous version. The contract will replace the longtime system linking teacher pay to years of employment and advanced degrees with one that rewards classroom effectiveness and growth in student achievement.

Marshal Yanda came to the Ravens in the third round of this year's college draft, projected as a player who would patiently wait his turn at offensive tackle behind Jonathan Ogden and Adam Terry. Fewer than two dozen snaps into the 2007 season opener in Cincinnati, the process for Yanda sped up exponentially when Ogden, the perennial All-Pro already battling a hyperextended big toe, sprained his foot. Yanda's number was called. "I was pretty nervous; I'm not going to lie," Yanda recalled this week.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Rather than sit around his house and watch television footage of pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, Steve Trachsel decided to start making some weekend plans that didn't include baseball. He told this story yesterday during a conference call before boarding a late flight for Fort Lauderdale, where he'll begin playing baseball. Funny how this game shoves a man aside and then pulls him back. Ignored much of the winter, Trachsel drew quick interest from the Orioles on Monday after they learned Kris Benson likely would miss the entire season because of a partially torn rotator cuff.

No. 15 Rutgers' improbable comeback win over No. 3 Louisville on Thursday might not be enough to propel the undefeated Scarlet Knights into college football's national championship picture, but it sure raised a lot of other teams' hopes. With experts conceding the No. 1 berth at season's end to the winner of the Michigan-Ohio State game next Saturday, previously unbeaten Louisville had the inside track to the No. 2 spot in the Bowl Championship Series standings. That would have put the Cardinals in the national title game Jan. 8 in Glendale, Ariz.

Seizing on the information provided by Assistant Attorney General Chris Wray, Sen. Charles E. Schumer renewed his call for Ashcroft to recuse himself from a politically sensitive probe that could reach into the Bush White House.

Don't use public moneyFrom: Ivan S. ShermanWestminsterThis letter is in response to Sharon Hornberger's column in the June 7 edition.The bottom line of Ms. Hornberger's comments was that driver's education in our high schools should continue to be financed by public funds.In defending this conclusion, she said . . . "the main thrust of our education was to prepare us for the 'real world'."I strongly disagree, philosophically, with that statement.The concept that public education is to assure our graduates that they can get along in the real world has come into the foreground of policy-makers in the past 25 years.

There are two types of people who are Internet-famous: those who sought the spotlight and those who didn't. And sometimes it's hard to say which group deserves stardom more. Kyle MacDonald, the former proud owner of a red paper clip, is clearly among those who have sought the spotlight. Nearly a year ago, the Montreal resident came up with a plan: MacDonald would try to barter his red paper clip for something slightly more valuable, which he would trade for something even more valuable, and so on, until he eventually received a house.
