The Baltimore area has a ton of research. But patents on that research? Not so much. A new report from the Brookings Institution shows that the metro area's level of patenting remained basically flat over the last decade, while the U.S. as a whole saw a 60 percent spike in patent grants. Per capita, our region's number of patent applications from 2007 to 2011 ranked 116th among metro areas -- far and away below the powerhouses like San Jose and San Francisco. Why care? Brookings, a Washington think tank, says patent-heavy areas have lower unemployment and other economic pluses.

The realignment would be kindergarten through fifth grade for elementary, grades six through eight for middle school and nine through 12 for high school.

Baltimore officials are paving the way for an extensive mixed-use project along the eastern shore of the Middle Branch with a plan to acquire the mostly industrial property and offer it for private development. A proposed urban renewal plan for West Covington, bounded by Interstate 95 on the north, Hanover Street on the east and the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River on the west, would enable the city to acquire about 50 acres in a part of the city targeted for redevelopment. But industrial businesses that would be displaced are fighting the plan, saying they already provide the jobs and economic development urban renewal is designed to bring.

"The next stop is the Middle Branch," Otis Rolley III, the city planning director, said of revitalization that is leapfrogging from the Inner Harbor to other parts of the shoreline. This week, private consultants hired by the planning department identified industrial Westport as an area that should be considered for rezoning as a business and residential area.

Although there have been more rumors of crime than actual reports of it in the flooded neighborhoods of eastern Baltimore County, police said yesterday that they will increase visible and covert patrols in those areas this weekend. Officers will be patrolling by air and sea in the neighborhoods of Bowleys Quarters, Seneca Park and Millers Island to reassure the residents that they and their properties are safe, said Bill Toohey, a county police spokesman. However, Toohey said, since Tropical Storm Isabel hit last week, there have been three reports of burglaries, two reports of theft and five reports of suspicious people in Essex.

After several days off from school, Edgewood Middle School pupils are expected to return to the classroom today, despite parents' continuing worries about mold in the building. Many parents are not convinced the building is safe, despite a microbiologist's assurances that mold and mildew are at acceptable levels in the older part of Edgewood Middle. At an emotional, often confrontational, meeting last night, parents chastised Harford County school officials for not telling them sooner about the mold problem, which they say has made their children sick.

There may not be an addition to Broadneck Senior High School or a new Meade Area Middle School next year after all, say county officials examining the Anne Arundel Board of Education's proposed $88.4 million construction budget.Both projects are desperately needed, school planners say, to keep up with the influx of new students in those areas.But with $5.4 million already committed to converting the former Andover High School building in Linthicum to a middle school -- money earmarked for the project this year, but used instead to build a new Solley Elementary -- the tab for repairs to existing buildings alone hits $24.2 million.

At least through mid-January.That prognostication comes from analysis of 384 of the black-and-reddish brown caterpillars collected last month in the venerable Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack's annual Woolly Bear Contest.The 199-year-old Almanack -- which accurately predicted the cold, snowy, icy winter of 1993-1994 -- forecasts a cold winter.
