GRACE BAY, Turks and Caicos -- Legendary rocker Keith Richards was out of uniform. No dangling cigarette, no wailing guitar, no stormy look. As a matter of fact, he was grinning. And scratching the tummy of a shaggy black munchkin of a dog. It was late January, and the Rolling Stones member was chilling on a dock overlooking the turquoise waters surrounding Parrot Cay, a Caribbean islet that bills itself as "the world's most exclusive resort." The 1,000-acre private island is in Turks and Caicos, a semi-obscure archipelago east of Cuba that has been propelled into the limelight by its rising popularity with the glitterati.

Have you heard about the wacky registry trend? It's true! Brides are going a little wacky with their registries nowadays. Recently NBC's "Today Show" even had a segment about “Registries Gone Wild” where couples asked for things like cars and toilets. Can you imagine? According to the "Today Show" segment, brides and grooms are using “universal” registries to get anything they want from any brand. For example, you could ask for a Dodge Dart! Or let's just say you don't want the whole car from one guest then you can ask gift givers to put money toward a part of the car, like the engine.

Sam Osheroff had only one goal heading into this year's Howard County Spelling Bee. The 11-year-old sixth-grader wanted to improve on his third-place finish in last year's competition. Sam started his preparation for the competition a couple of months ago. He studied hundreds of flash cards from spelling competition word guides - even studying poolside while vacationing with his family in the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos. All the preparation and sacrifice paid off March 12 when the Clarksville Middle School student beat out 63 others from across the county and won the annual Howard County Spelling Bee. Sam, who won a $1,000 scholarship, a trophy and a copy of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, will now go on to compete in the National Spelling Bee in Washington from June 2-4. Siri Neerchal, a fifth-grade student at Centennial Lane Elementary School, was the second-place finalist.

MIAMI - Hurricane Ike ripped through central Cuba yesterday, toppling colonial landmarks and forcing the evacuation of nearly 1 million people - with more likely to be displaced as the powerful storm plowed toward populous Havana. Revolutionary leader Fidel Castro proclaimed his country on "combat alert" against the third large storm to hit the island in as many weeks and what he portrayed as a heartless double standard that blocks U.S. humanitarian aid. The extent of Ike's damage elsewhere in the Caribbean emerged yesterday, a day after it ravaged Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 135 mph and triggered more flooding in devastated Haiti, where the deaths from a series of storms were said to exceed 1,000.

GRAND TURK, The Turks and Caicos Islands -- Adrift out here on the fringes of the Caribbean, the Turks and Caicos Islands sit at the bottom of the Bahamas chain, nature's afterthought 575 miles southeast of Miami. Oh, they've had their share of pirates and slaves, shipwrecks and plantations; but scarcely anyone except scuba divers ever vacationed in this 40-island archipelago until the mid-1960s, when development and offshore banking on Providenciales - Provo for short - began, little by little, to attract the resort crowd - and inevitably drew job seekers away from Grand Turk.
