A few years back, Nathan “Bodie” Barksdale had a public spat with “The Wire” creator David Simon over the extent to which he was an inspiration for drug boss Avon Barksdale in the series. All the while, he vowed that he was long out of the game. But now the Drug Enforcement Administration says Barksdale is a high-ranking member of the Black Guerrilla Family. U.S. marshals arrested him this week on federal heroin and gun charges after he spent a short spell on the run. Barksdale, 52, is accused of taking part in a heroin conspiracy with alleged drug supplier Suraj Tairu, who is also charged in the case.

The act, which includes provisions ranging from grants for counseling to efforts for preventing dating violence, expires in September. The law requires that the addresses of victims remain private. "There are one in nine women affected by domestic violence," says Erin Mayer, Avon tour manager.

Dorothy Horn, an Avon representative for 35 years who sold cosmetics door to door early in her career, died Tuesday of a heart condition at Howard County General Hospital. She was 79. Mrs. Horn, who lived in Elkridge for the past 21 years, worked for the cosmetics company until her death. Many years ago, when the familiar knock of "Avon ladies" faded into history, Mrs. Horn shifted to selling through representatives at area workplaces. Born and raised in Rhode Island, Dorothy Adams graduated from Pawtucket High School there.

An hour before Thursday morning's job fair at the Baltimore Convention Center, the line to get in was already long, so two women just north of middle age - "mature workers" - pulled a couple of soft chairs away from a coffee table so they could sit during the wait. "You're not allowed to do that," a custodian from the convention center was quick to tell them. "What if you're handicapped?" one of the women said, and the custodian was just as quick to back off. The women made themselves comfortable and started rummaging through the plastic greeting bag everyone received upon arrival at EmploymentGuide.
