Baltimore's spending panel voted unanimously Wednesday to change the Baltimore Arena's name to the Royal Farms Arena in exchange for about $1.2 million over five years. Under the terms of the agreement, the Baltimore-based convenience store chain — which is perhaps best known for its Western fries and fried chicken — would pay $250,000 annually to the city annually for five years. The deal would roughly triple the amount received by the city for the title sponsorship when it was known as 1st Mariner Arena . That agreement, approved in 2002, netted the city $75,000 a year before it expired at the end of 2012.

With royals-watchers on high alert throughout the world, wondering just when William and Kate will become mom and dad -- and, more importantly, what the young heir's name will be -- we figured it's about time Baltimore got in on the act. After all, there are plenty of moms and dads in these parts, many who can boast of English ancestry (we hear there are even some families named Windsor in town). And while royalty per se may be scarce around here, we did help unloose Wallis Warfield Simpson on the world, and she certainly left her mark on the House of Windsor.

Patapsco High School & Center for the Arts educator Sean McComb fondly recalls a high school English teacher who led him to see the world differently through books and a mentor from the student-run cable station who helped him host his own weekly sports show. On Monday, McComb, 29, was honored as Baltimore County's 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year for, among other things, being an example of one who inspires and supports his students. "The teachers that I had in 10th, 11th, 12th grade were the models, and what they did for me made me believe it was possible to do that for other people," said McComb, a Joppa resident who is an English teacher and coordinates a college-prep program, AVID.

Baltimore Police have identified a police officer involved in the shooting of a knife-wielding man earlier this week in West Baltimore. The identification of Officer Fred Murray, who shot a 49-year-old man Tuesday in the 1200 block of Oakhurst Pl., follows the department's policy of waiting 48 hours to identify an officer. A few years ago, the agency began withholding such names before reversing course. The Sun in January 2009 first reported that the police had broken a decades-old policy of releasing officers names , with the agency saying that it would protect officers from retaliation, 23 officers had been threatened in the previous year.
