It's an award ceremony that's being dubbed "the year in your ear," to honor Baltimore poets. And while not every scribe will leave the People's Poetry Awards 2004 with a statue or bragging rights, organizers hope Saturday's event at the Cork Gallery on Guilford Avenue will foster greater unity and purpose among the diverse wordsmiths who make up this city's vibrant poetry scene.

In Baltimore City Syphilis cases drop 83 percent, hit lowest level in three decades Baltimore's syphilis rate, which plummeted during the past several years, has hit its lowest level in at least three decades. According to Dr. Peter L. Beilenson, the city health commissioner, Baltimore posted 110 cases last year, compared with 662 in 1997, an 83 percent drop. The numbers reflect a continued outreach and education effort since the city ranked No. 1 in syphilis nationwide in 1997. That year, one in every 20 syphilis cases in the country was in Baltimore, Beilenson said.

Lucille Clifton had been through this once before and not won, so when she learned she was a finalist for a prestigious National Book Award last month, she was honored, she said, just to be nominated. The second time, though, proved to be the charm. Last night in New York, Clifton, the Columbia poet who is the author of more than 30 books and former poet laureate of Maryland, won the National Book Award for poetry for her latest collection, "Blessing the Boats: New and Selected Poems 1998-2000."

In Baltimore City Acrid odor forces evacuation of state health employees More than 2,000 people were evacuated from the state health department building at 201 W. Preston St. for nearly three hours yesterday after employees on one floor noticed an acrid odor that stung their eyes and irritated their throats. When the fire alarm went off about 9 a.m., workers said, they first thought it might be a false alarm or a drill. But because of the terrorist attacks one week ago, many took the alarm more seriously.

Deep in the south ocean near Antarctica, the six skippers sailing in the Volvo Ocean Race are worried about giant squid, whales and stray icebergs on the longest and traditionally most treacherous leg of the round-the-world race. It is safe to say they aren't thinking about Baltimore. But in eight weeks, if all goes as planned, these boats will sail up the Chesapeake Bay for a three-week reprieve in Charm City and Annapolis. Ocean Race Chesapeake, a group organizing events while the boats are in Maryland, announced yesterday a schedule of events for the stopover that includes festivals, regattas, awards ceremonies and school tours.

Amy Herstein has entertained thoughts of opening her own bakery when she graduates from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. "I like making pastries," she said. Asked about her best-made treat, Herstein smiled and modestly declined to choose one. "I don't think that is for me to judge," she said. "I'm big on desserts, and I like bread, too." Herstein, an 18-year-old freshman, has been blind since birth but hasn't allowed the disability to limit her spirit or cloud her dreams.

When Edward T. Norris became Maryland State Police superintendent this year, he pledged to shake up the agency. At an awards ceremony yesterday, he celebrated the changes with troopers who have been promoted into his new command structure. Despite some criticism of his personnel moves - including a vote of no confidence by one of the Fraternal Order of Police lodges that represents troopers - Norris said the promotions help fulfill the goals he has for the department. "I told you we'd find the future leaders of this department," he said during the ceremony at state police headquarters in Pikesville.
