The Cincinnati Reds and officials in Hamilton County, Ohio, have agreed to build a riverfront ballpark downtown, one that could open in 2003. The cost of the stadium, with an agreed-upon 30-year lease, has been capped at $235 million. Cinergy Field, which opened as Riverfront Stadium in 1970, will be demolished to make way for the new park. Cubs catcher Sandy Martinez dropped his appeal of a two-game suspension from the National League for his part in a brawl with the Braves on May 25. Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro and Indians righthander Bartolo Colon were named the American League's player and pitcher of the month for June.

Cincinnati's Barry Larkin met with general manager Jim Bowden for about two hours yesterday to consider the shortstop's request for a trade. Afterward, Larkin reiterated his desire to play for a contender, but Bowden said any trade was a "dead issue" right now. Larkin asked for a trade about two weeks ago because the Reds are rebuilding, according to Bowden. The Reds talked to four clubs but could not make a deal, he said. Montreal placed pitcher Mike Maddux on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained tendon in his right elbow.

Eric Anthony called Eddie Taubensee the hero. Taubensee said it was just his turn. Both hit pinch homers in Cincinnati's five-run eighth inning yesterday as the Reds out-homered the visiting Atlanta Braves to win, 9-8. Jerome Walton and Reggie Sanders also homered for Cincinnati, while David Justice, Charlie O'Brien and Chipper Jones connected for the Braves. "I've never been in a game where there were two pinch-hit home runs in an inning," Anthony said. "That's almost unheard of. "To me, Eddie's was the big blow.

Snow flurries, a touch of the flu and the red-hot Colorado Rockies - not exactly a pitcher's ideal elixir for success. It was a recipe for disaster yesterday for Cincinnati starter Ricky Bones as Ellis Burks homered twice and Andres Galarraga added four hits to help the Rockies extend their winning streak to six with a 13-4 rout of the Reds. On an afternoon with light snow and a wind-chill near 6, every Colorado starter had at least one hit, and the Rockies finished with 19 for the second straight game.

There was at least one place in this town where people seemed reluctant to talk about Pete Rose's legal victory, where smiles were scarce and answers were terse. That would be the Reds' clubhouse after yesterday's 7-0 loss to Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm not talking," Reds leftfielder Ken Griffey said, turning his back on reporters who had hoped to ask him about his manager and former teammate. "I don't want to talk about Pete," rightfielder Paul O'Neill said.

The Cincinnati Reds are a lot like the Phillies. Both teams will attempt to play with the big boys next season despite low payrolls and diminished expectations. Both have signature players - righthander Curt Schilling for the Phils and shortstop Barry Larkin for the Reds - who have suggested to management that they should be traded. As baseball's winter meetings got under way yesterday at the sprawling Opryland complex, however, it was the Reds who seized the spotlight with the first announcement.

There were midriffs and cutouts. Jumpsuits and tea-length dresses. Shades of navy and long sleeves. Of course, there were a few sweetheart necklines and the obligatory ballgowns. But for the most part, celebrities on Sunday night's Golden Globes red carpet let stylists experiment with new silhouettes. And the result - the offical beginning of the 2015 red carpet season was refreshingly modern. It's hard to pick a favorite, but among the best- dressed of the night was Julianne Moore in a nearly blinding silver Givenchy.

WHEN AN early-December fire consumed their kitchen and filled their North Philadelphia house with smoke, Sharon McCurdy and her adult son, Wilson Washington, fled onto 27th Street near Somerset. Their beloved gray-and-white cat, Tigger, was missing. Once the fire scene was secure, former firefighter Jennifer Leary and her Red Paw Emergency Relief Team responded to Tigger's absence as intensely as the Red Cross responds to families displaced by disaster. Leary found Tigger at the scene of the fire, boarded him in her house, took him to a veterinarian and placed him in Red Paw's network of temporary foster homes until he could return to his. After staying with relatives, McCurdy and Washington were able to move back home just before Christmas.

WITHIN a 2-week span before the end of 2014, Ruben Amaro Jr. has jettisoned two everyday players from the Phillies' lineup. A dozen days after Jimmy Rollins officially was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the general manager sent outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitching prospect Ben Lively on Wednesday. The Phillies also sent cash to Cincinnati to complete the deal. Byrd, who turns 38 in August, hit a career-high 25 home runs in 2014. He also struck out a career-high 185 times; only Ryan Howard struck out more among major league hitters.

The latest move in the Phillies' rebuilding effort came Wednesday, injecting another young arm into the minor-league system and ensuring that a younger outfield takes the field this spring. Twelve days after acquiring a pair of young arms for Jimmy Rollins, the franchise's all-time hits leader, the Phillies shipped veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd and cash considerations to the Cincinnati Reds for righthanded pitching prospect Ben Lively. Lively, 22, projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter.

LUMBERTON - The large tree stump at Main and Landing Streets had bothered Tommy Shover since he took down the rest of the diseased red oak about five years ago. What could he do with it? As general foreman of Lumberton's public works department, he could saw it off to the ground - or he could ask his brother Guy to turn it into a work of art. And that's what happened Sunday while a small crowd watched mesmerized. Motorists opened their windows to offer praise every time the corner traffic light turned red. Over about 10 hours, the eyesore became a graceful bird in flight, the inner wood grain beautifully mimicking the feathers of the wings.

Recently, a 1-year-old boy was brought to our practice for a routine checkup. He was a very healthy toddler and had been reaching all his milestones in both growth and development with absolute perfection. He had a flawless neonatal course, and all his lab work to date - including his newborn screen, complete blood count and lead test - were all within normal limits. His physical exam was completely normal until I found something ominous on his skin that would alter his life.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The three-day holiday break does not seem to come at a good time for the surging Flyers. "You want to skip Christmas?" coach Craig Berube deadpanned when asked about the momentum of the Flyers, winners of the first three games of an eight-game road trip. "I don't mind. " After the laughter stopped, Berube said: "That's just what you have to deal with. The guys can use a little break here, a couple of days, and then get refocused and get back at it in Nashville.'

A few years back, right around Christmas, I got a surprise in the mail that was anything but a gift: a speeding ticket from a town right outside Washington in Montgomery County, Md. My crime: going 38 m.p.h. in a 30 m.p.h. zone. A couple years later, another family Thanksgiving in Washington yielded a similar December surprise: a ticket for running a red light, with the proof once again right there in the envelope. Yup, that was a grainy shot of our minivan midway through a Wisconsin Avenue intersection, the signal plainly on red. Both incidents came to mind this week, a week after New Jersey allowed its five-year experiment with red-light cameras to lapse and days after a Chicago Tribune study cast new doubts on the efficacy of the Windy City's extensive system, which posts electronic eyes at more than 350 intersections.

After five years, New Jersey's pilot red-light camera traffic program came to a quiet end. But the debate continues on whether the controversial experiment improved safety or was just a cash cow for municipalities that raked in millions from frustrated motorists. Six municipalities in Camden and Gloucester Counties installed cameras at nine intersections in South Jersey under the program, which began in 2009. The cameras nailed hundreds of thousands of motorists blowing through intersections when the light was red. At $85 each, the citations pulled in millions of dollars in fines for more than two dozen municipalities, which were allowed to keep the bulk of the money to add to their coffers.

The holiday season is a time when I want to impress friends and family with a special meal, but I don't want to miss all the fun and socializing and arrive at the table sweaty and exhausted. Since I want the meal to register a notch above a typical supper, I've learned it's best to plan a menu that can be prepared largely ahead of time, with a few quick trips to the kitchen during cocktail hour. Rich, indulgent ingredients like red meat, red wine, cream, and chocolate can make the simplest dishes taste extraordinary, and they're the perfect way to savor a celebratory meal during a cold, dark winter evening.
