Jon Walker's friends were looking forward to watching him reunite with his beloved German shepherd, Zara, when he returns from a year-long Army deployment in Afghanistan later this month. But his dog bolted into a patch of woods while playing catch with a dogsitter in Crownsville last week and a non-stop effort to find her has proven fruitless, leaving them suspicious that there might be more to this than meets the eye. “Jon is devastated,” says his friend Heather Cappelli, who's spearheading the effort to find Zara.

WHATEVER REASONS the United States had in the early 1980s to withhold what it owed the United Nations have vanished. The Treasury has the money, which is peanuts in the U.S. budget. The demands that Washington made for U.N. reform are substantially met. The United Nations is an essential arena for U.S. foreign policy. Withholding dues and assessments as a bludgeon was successful for a period but backfired, and now diminishes U.S. influence.The latest example of the world body caving in to reasonable U.S. demands was shown by a related agency, the World Health Organization.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. --This is what Maryland kept desperately hoping to defer - that moment when its memorable, overachieving season would crash to an end, and senior star Alyssa Thomas would walk off the court for the final time in her college career. The Terps made it all the way to the bright lights, pep rallies and glitz of the Final Four before encountering an undefeated Notre Dame team that stunned them with its rebounding in an 87-61 victory, sending the Fighting Irish (37-0) into Tuesday's national championship.

A Waldorf man whose accomplice called their 1996 killing of a Gambrills teen-ager "the perfect murder" was sentenced yesterday to two consecutive life terms in prison without parole. Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Pamela L. North said the killing of Joseph Aaron Demarest was "so over the top" that she believed it was the kind of planned, gruesome slaying that legislators had in mind when they enacted a no-parole measure. Veterinary technician Stefan Tyson Bell, 26, was convicted last year of murdering Demarest because Bell did not want to pay Demarest a debt for about two pounds of marijuana.

The photographs haunt him and there are thousands - grainy snapshots of Iraqi men, women and children. Their eyes stare back at him, begging the questions: Where did they go? Why did they vanish? Will they return? Zuhair Humadi has no answers. Instead, he has a mission: to document the disappeared. An Iraqi exile living in Falls Church, Va., Humadi has spent the past decade collecting information about Iraqis who disappeared during the regime of Saddam Hussein. Last fall, with the help of Fareed Yasseen, a technology consultant in Boston, and a grant from the State Department, Humadi created an online database, Mafqud.

Thomas Brown is a fan of the tried and true. His goal is to outfit his architectural millwork shop in Remington with no equipment made after the 1930s. That, he says, was the point at which beauty in design vanished from manufacturing. Brown says, "If we don't custom-make new work to the exact shape and forms of the old work, something modern would be substituted, and the information would be lost," he says.

George Bosque, 36, a Brink's guard who took $1.85 million from an armored truck in 1980 and went on a coast-to-coast spending spree, has died in San Francisco of a possible drug overdose, a coroner said Wednesday. He was 36. He vanished from San Francisco International Airport on Aug. 15, 1980, with two sacks of $50 and $100 bills. "There was all that money there, and it seemed like the answer," Bosque said after he was captured in a San Francisco supermarket parking lot 15 months later.

More than eight minutes into Tuesday's Northeast Conference men's lacrosse opener with Robert Morris, Mount St. Mary's had a 3-0 advantage and a vision of its first win of the season. But the lead evaporated in a span of 80 seconds, and the Mountaineers eventually lost, 15-8, at Waldron Family Stadium. The setback extended the losing streak for Mount St. Mary's to nine, a program record to begin a season. The team hasn't won since April 27, 2013, when it routed Wagner, 14-7, in the regular-season finale.

It was an accident, really. My saving for retirement. I was in my 30s when I heard about IRAs, individual retirement accounts, and they sounded like a good idea. I was single. No house. No kids. I could afford to put a couple of thousand away each year. I didn't think I'd need it, of course. My dad retired from Alcoa with a pension and full medical coverage for him and my mother, and I figured I would retire that way, too. But I thought it might be good to have a little extra money for, I don't know, world travel.

A little more than a month ago, the Washington Capitals called a players-only meeting in search of a wake-up call. Off to the fourth-worst start in franchise history at 2-8-1, they sat in last place in the NHL, five points out of a playoff spot. They've gone 8-5-0 in the 13 games since the meeting, at times showing enough noticeable improvement to suggest that things were finally starting to come together under first-year coach Adam Oates. But after losing to the Islanders and Rangers this weekend, the Capitals have little to show for their modest progress.

The owner of the life-sized stuffed goat that has served as the unofficial mascot for the Naval Academy Class of 1961 is offering a $500 reward for information that leads Annapolis police to identify a person in a photo and for information leading to the return of the stuffed billy goat. Dubbed Fearless, the billy goat has stood atop Ron Carlberg's SUV during tailgating before Navy games, and children ask to pet it. But the stuffed animal, bought several years ago by Carlberg's wife, vanished from the back of the couple's car during an Oct. 20 Navy-Indiana game.

Melissa Schehlein, a Towson native, walked the streets and byways of the Baltimore County seat in search of what was while documenting with her camera what is. The result of her search was the recently published book, "Towson: Then and Now," a 96-page photo essay that takes readers on a tour of contemporary Towson, which she contrasts photographically with images of earlier years. In her introduction, Schehlein writes that Towson is the "commercial, political and cultural heart of Baltimore County," and her mission and "primary emphasis is York Road, our defining corridor.

One can't help but question the wisdom of launching yet another serialized drama this year after the costly implosions of more than a dozen such tales, including Six Degrees (ABC), Kidnapped (NBC), Smith (CBS) and Vanished (Fox). Yet tonight, in the next-to-last week of the network season, ABC introduces Traveler, a thriller about three graduate school friends caught up in a terrorist bombing and manhunt in New York City. The network is even showcasing the series in the middle of May sweeps in the hour after Grey's Anatomy, one of the most popular shows on network TV. And this for a show that failed to make ABC's fall lineup.

For generations, this downtown neighborhood close to Camden Yards has seemed almost Dickensian: a working-class district where humor, pathos, pride and concern for the people next door take the edge off hard times.With its narrow streets, weathered buildings and scraggly skyline, Pigtown evokes a 19th-century Baltimore where people walked to work for the railroad, set clocks by the whistles and swept soot off the sidewalks.Oddball things often happened. In the early part of this century, the spectacle of pigs being driven through the streets, from stockyards to slaughterhouse, was commonplace.

Asked recently to describe his first year at the helm of the Orioles, manager Buck Showalter searched for the perfect word or phrase. Has it been frustrating? Exhilarating? Draining? A mixed bag? "It's been, 'Under construction,'" Showalter eventually said. Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of when Showalter sat at a Camden Yards' dais and was introduced as the club's newest skipper — the Orioles' 19th overall, sixth since 2003 and third last season, following Dave Trembley and interim manager Juan Samuel.

More than 70 people gathered Sunday evening on an Edmondson Village street corner, rallying for the safe return of an infant who disappeared Friday with the teenager who had been left to watch him briefly. Pastors and relatives surrounded Whitney McGee, the mother of Ki'Yauhn Birch, as she tearfully pleaded for Jonae Boozer, the 16-year-old last seen with the 7-month-old boy, to surrender the baby. "Put my baby somewhere safe and call somebody. He's probably hungry," McGee, 20, wept, as she said she was deeply worried about her baby's well-being, especially in the intense heat of the past few days.
