The leaves on my rose have yellow "worm-track" holes. (The leaves are not eaten away.) I live close to the Patapsco River, so I'd rather not use anything too strong. Rose slugs are the larvae of a wasplike sawfly. Their larvae are about 1/2 -inch long, yellow-green, and blend in perfectly with rose foliage. The larvae skeletonize leaves by etching off the upper surface between the veins. With heavy infestations, defoliation may occur and a summer rate of horticultural oil can be used. My tomato leaves began wilting, though well watered.

Shaquille O'Neal's right hand is 11 inches long and 9 inches wide, which means he can take the ruler one measures basketball players with, bend it a little, put his thumb on one end, his middle finger on the other end, and snap it in half.Crack.Shaq breaks all the rules.This night in Orlando, Fla., he's matched up against Robert Parish of the Boston Celtics. Parish, 39, is the oldest player in the league. He is 7-foot, 250 pounds, and -- after some 1,450 National Basketball Association games -- has a decent idea of what he's doing.

The families of two Western Maryland coal miners who died in a 2007 accident filed a lawsuit Thursday against the strip mine's operator, contending that unsafe conditions led to their deaths. The $4 million suit was brought by the widows and children of Michael R. Wilt and Dale Jones. The two men were working in a coal pit in Barton on April 17, 2007, when an unstable "highwall" collapsed, raining some 93,000 tons of rock and material on their heavy-equipment vehicles. The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration cited the operator, Tri-Star Mining Inc., for violations that it said contributed to the accident.
