New York Mets reliever Armando Benitez yesterday agreed to a no-contact order with his former girlfriend after a court hearing in which she alleged that he hit her 15 times during their three-year relationship. Benitez, a former Oriole, denied ever hitting his one-time fiancee, Stacey O'Neil, 27, but agreed to stay away from her on the condition that O'Neil move out of their Federal Hill home by Jan. 31. O'Neil also agreed not to communicate with Benitez, 28. The agreement was hashed out in Baltimore District Court by lawyers after O'Neil testified that Benitez hit her several times, once leaving bruises "up and down" her arms and legs.

The owners of two popular restaurants in downtown Baltimore have agreed to pay $1.3 million and establish new hiring measures to settle a years-old lawsuit alleging racial discrimination against black applicants and employees. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit in 2008 against McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants Inc. and Schmick Restaurant Corp., owners of McCormick & Schmick's and M&S Grill in the Inner Harbor. The lawsuit claimed the restaurants violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by refusing to hire black applicants for front-of-the-house positions such as servers and hostesses.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan have agreed to a second televised debate in the race for Maryland governor.  The Oct. 13 event, co-hosted by three Washington-area media organizations, will be less than a week after the pair face off in a Baltimore-area debate. Campaigns for Brown, the lieutenant governor, and Hogan, an Annapolis businessman, have publicly sparred over whether there will be enough public debates before the Nov. 4 election. Aides in the candidates' camps say the campaigns are negotiating over a possible third radio debate.

Baltimore city and county leaders announced Tuesday that they are committing a combined $280 million to fund construction of the Red Line light rail even as the estimated cost for the project has ballooned to $2.9 billion. The local contributions are considered critical for the Woodlawn-to-East Baltimore transit line to proceed. As federal transportation funding has dwindled in recent years, officials prioritizing infrastructure improvements around the country have favored projects that include state and local cost sharing.

Time for a brutal assessment regarding the state of immigration reform in America. Extreme partisans on both sides of the aisle - you will not like what you read over the next two minutes. Hopefully, the rest of you will chew on it for a bit. First, the GOP. The upside here is that a majority of Republicans seem to have at least some appreciation for the rule of law. In the context of immigration reform, this instinct plays out in a desire to enforce the law - just like every other civilized country in the world, especially Mexico.

I am a Jewish American and a lifelong and committed Zionist who wholeheartedly agrees with Caroline Poplin's recent commentary ( "A costly victory for Israel," Aug. 7). However, it requires some minor corrections. First, most Middle Eastern observers agree that returning to the Israel's original pre-1967 borders cannot work. It leaves Israel with indefensible borders in the event of a future conflict and excludes some large adjacent, long-standing legal settlements. The solution is to return to the pre-1967 borders with mutually agreed adjustments.

The city of Baltimore and CSX Transportation have agreed to split the cost of rebuilding the one-block retaining wall that collapsed along East 26th Street in Charles Village, ending months of negotiations over who was responsible and how much taxpayers would cover. City officials said Monday they expect the collapse to cost taxpayers about $7.5 million - though the total could increase as construction continues - and CSX would pay the rest. The entire project is now expected to cost about $15 million, down from an initial estimate of $18.5 million.
