Editor's note: This Southwestern tale of courage and determination centers on a member of the squirrel family. Formally known as a marmot, the main character is referred to as a whistle pig because of its shrill alarm whistle. Long, long ago in Castle Rock, Colorado, where the mountains bulge and the air is clean, lived a little whistle pig named William. Every morning, dressed only in his long johns, William jumped from his bunk, grinned at himself in the mirror and whistled the tune, "HAPPY TRAILS TO YOUUUUU, KEEP SMILING UNTIL THEN."

A Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty yesterday to taking nearly $400,000 from a Howard County bank in December by posing as an armored-car driver who was picking up deposits. Robert Allen Flanagan, 38, of Dallastown, Pa., is also accused of trying the same scheme at several businesses one day in October in Baltimore and Howard counties. He was successful only once, taking deposits of $70,000 from a Target store in Towson. He was arrested and charged with three counts of attempted theft of $500 or more and one count of theft of $500 or more in Baltimore County, according to court and police records, and posted a $50,000 bond.

The powerful Stronach Stables Inc. decided not to send Wrangler to Florida with trainer Joe Orseno for the winter because the colt's quirky habits wouldn't sit well in the tight confines of Gulfstream Park. Instead, Wrangler stayed in New York in the care of James Jerkens, who has guided him to three straight victories since Thanksgiving, including a come-from-behind score in yesterday's Grade II, $200,000 General George Handicap at Laurel Park. Despite some unruly pre-race behavior, Wrangler was all business once the gate opened and overtook local speedster Rusty Spur after the field straightened for the wire, pulling away to win by 2 3/4 lengths.

In the car business, it's all about product. You can move iron with incentives and lure tire-kickers with a clever ad. But to rack up consistent sales and build a loyal customer base, a car company needs to make quality vehicles that meet buyers' needs and fulfill their desires. For the "new" Chrysler - which recently went private and is in the midst of a restructuring - meeting these challenges won't be easy. Although the automaker's Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles "are seen by consumers as being rugged, tough and powerful with aggressive designs," says Steve Witten of market research firm J.D. Power & Associates, "what they're below average on is being fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly, providing good value for money and appealing to younger drivers."

Just weeks into her sophomore year at Westminster High, Brittany Costley, 15, has all the typical concerns of a teenager, but she also is grappling with an especially heavy burden: coming to terms with the recent deaths of two classmates. Both were friends, and she lost them to two deadly car crashes that occurred exactly a month apart, the most recent one about a week and a half ago. Though her mother begged her not to go to the first funeral - for 16-year-old Zachary D. Ondrish - Brittany insisted she needed to be there.

YOU hate bugs. Bugs trigger the automatic ewwww! response in your cerebral cortex. Bugs make you shudder. If a bug lands or crawls on you, you jump like Jerry Springer just draped an arm around your shoulder. Fine. But you don't hate bugs the way Ellen Bauer hates bugs. Just thinking about bugs gets Bauer all creeped out. She wants to go hide in a closet. And God forbid she actually gets anywhere near a bug. Because then her palms start sweating. And her heart starts pounding. And a voice starts clanging in her head like a fire alarm: Run away!

The horses, if you will, have left the starting gate. Now, it's a question of how far they'll go. After a federal judge ruled jockeys had the right to wear promotional logos on their pants during races at Churchill Downs, at least 10 of 18 riders in the Kentucky Derby sported advertising on their clothing. Jockeys in most other states - including Maryland and New York, the sites of the final two legs of the Triple Crown - have been allowed to wear advertising all along. But after the ads were made legitimate by being worn in the Derby, acceptance may grow.

Life was never this good when the horse known as I Two Step Too earned his oats running in races as far from the bright lights and big city as a thoroughbred racehorse gets. After all those years in the company of other four-legged broken dreams, reminded each time he would race in places like Boise, Stampede Park and the Montana State Fair that he was, as they say, "not much stock," his luck had taken a sudden turn for the better. Only last summer, he was slugging it out regularly, running hard, not fast, for small money at Les Bois Park in Idaho, and up for sale each time he ran. Then suddenly, I Two Step Too was a movie star on location, traveling first-class to Kentucky and Hollywood.

Fifty-seven rowhouses, one street. That's the 1400 block of Patapsco St. in South Baltimore, a blue-collar bastion now in transition, as they say. Lawyers live next to longshoremen, recent college graduates near recovering dope addicts. Saab convertibles vie for curb space with old Chevys. One Formstone house has a "Pray the Rosary" sign in the window; a brick house being renovated displays building permits. Even the pronunciation varies. To old-timers, it'll always be "Patapsico," hon. One thing everyone has in common is the street.

Two young Parkville men unexpectedly pleaded guilty in Baltimore County Circuit Court yesterday in the death of a Cockeysville woman who suffocated after an unoccupied Jeep pushed down a hill crashed through a brick wall and into her bedroom. As a prosecutor described for the judge the frantic but ultimately failed struggle to extricate Melanie J. Wentz, 28, from the Jeep Wrangler that had pinned her on her bed, her sobbing parents hurriedly left the courtroom and did not return. In court for what was expected to be a routine pretrial hearing, David J. Myers, 20, of the 9000 block of Waltham Woods Road and Anton F. Marx Jr., 19, of the 1800 block of Redwood Ave. pleaded guilty to misdemeanor manslaughter in Wentz's death Feb. 12. Myers and Marx, who Assistant State's Attorney Stephen Roscher said had been on a spree of sport utility vehicle break-ins, will be sentenced Oct. 22. The maximum they could receive is 10 years in prison, but state sentencing guidelines call for three months to four years.

CHESTERTOWN - Trooper John Stringfellow was about 30 yards from the Jeep Wrangler early Sept. 9, 1999, when he spotted "the head of a baby girl" above the window, he told a Kent County Circuit Court jury yesterday. He sprinted for the Jeep parked near a house under construction on the banks of the Choptank River in Talbot County, and found Destiny Spicknall, 3, and her brother, Richie, 2, strapped in their car seats in the back. "I thought the baby girl was still alive," Stringfellow testified in the murder trial of the children's father, Richard Wayne Spicknall II, 28, of Laurel.
