Sixteen people were shot in Baltimore City over the Labor Day weekend, six of them fatally, including a young mother killed Sunday evening by a stray bullet as she tidied up after a holiday gathering of family and friends. All the victims of the weekend's violence deserve swift justice, but none more that Larelle Amos, a 22-year-old former honors student at Kenwood High who leaves behind a 1-year-old son. Now is the time for incoming city police commissioner Anthony Batts to show the leadership Baltimore expects of the city's top cop. His first assignment should be to make sure Larelle Amos' killer is brought to justice.

When Adrian Amos arrived at Penn State last summer, veteran cornerback Stephon Morris took the Calvert Hall graduate under his wing. Morris wanted to show him the ropes and how the team's secondary did things, especially since both are from Maryland. From Day One, the pair hit it off. "Ah, Amos, he's like my little puppy," Morris joked. "That's my guy. " Amos, figuratively anyway, may be like a small animal to his mentor: fun to teach new tricks and play around with. But the Nittany Lions will need Amos to be much more than that this fall, and his large frame coupled with high football intelligence and speed will only help.

Opening a restaurant is no easy undertaking. Finding the right mix of food, decor and staff is hard enough, but making sure everything runs smoothly takes extreme focus. Te Amo , a new Spanish tapas restaurant and piano bar on O'Donnell Square in Canton, seems a bit preoccupied. Housed in the space that used to be Cosmopolitan, Te Amo is split into a downstairs bar area and an upstairs open dining room and piano bar. You can seat yourself on either floor. But the a lack of a hostess in the front or at the top of the stairs can make it confusing.
