The 27-foot sailboat was David Ward's new toy. He had bought it only hours earlier from a man in Middle River and on Sunday was sailing it, with four friends as crew, to its new berth in a Fells Point marina. Then things started to go wrong. The boat's tiller snapped in the choppy waters of the Chesapeake Bay, and Ward cut the engine while he replaced the broken part. But when he tried to restart the motor, the battery was almost flat — useless. Drifting near the Patapsco River about a mile north of Fort Howard, Ward pulled out his cellphone and dialed the number of a towing company, just as any motorist on firm ground might do. The man who got the call was Capt.

Playing in their first American Indoor Football Association title game, the Baltimore Mariners made every attempt Sunday to link their newfound success to the city's storied football past, even bringing in Colts Hall of Famer Lenny Moore to serve as honorary captain. By the end of AIFA Bowl IV, it was clear to the announced 6,075 in attendance at 1st Mariner Arena that the indoor upstart had found its niche. Quarterback E.J. Nemeth fired three second-half touchdown passes, including a pair to Aaron Yarbough, as the Mariners rallied from an early 16-point deficit for a 57-42 win over the Wyoming Cavalry to complete the first perfect season in the brief history of the AIFA, the third largest of the nation's arena football leagues in terms of size.

Whartscape 2010 The Rolling Stones once had a hit, "The Last Time," that you probably won't hear at this year's Whartscape, Baltimore's annual alternative music festival. But maybe you should — organizers are saying that this year's Whartscape, the fifth, will be the last. But what a run, and what a send-off! This year's schedule includes more than 100 music, theater and video performances, about half of them by local artists. Everyone from Arab on Radar to Zomes will be showing up, all reveling in the sort of cultural nonconformity that often gives rise to genius (or something dangerously close to it)
