Yesterday, in the wake of the second murder of a transgender woman in Baltimore in the last two months , Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts held a press conference to convey a commitment to solving the crime and improving police relations with the transgender community. Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock also started tweeting about 26-year-old Mia Henderson's death, saying she was his "brother," and the case -- which city police had clearly sought to shine a spotlight on -- became the subject of international news.

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.

If you're a book-lover and football-lover (there really are a few of us out there), you've gotta love Stevie Baggs of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bethune-Cookman University grad is nicknamed "Shakespeare," because he's known for making plays. For the uninitiated, that means he does some eye-opening work on the field. A little bit of football humor, but not bad for a sport known more for head-banging than than for the bon mot. It's fitting that Baggs plays for the Ravens, which has its own rich literary heritage.

Rapper, producer and actor Dr. Dre knows who he likes in the Super Bowl: Ravens to take it all. He tells TMZ that he's with the team that has Ray Lewis on it. "It's a good looking Super Bowl, isn't it?" a TMZ reporter asks Dr. Dre. "Absolutely," Dr. Dre says. "I'm excited for Ray Lewis, man," he continues. "He's a good guy and I'm a fan of his. I'm wishing the best for him. " Not a bad endorsement from a California guy, who -- at least logistically speaking -- would seem inclined to go with San Francisco.

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody!  Welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  And welcome to the Super Bowl Champion -- world champion -- Baltimore Ravens.  (Applause.)  Everybody can have a seat.  That's why we set up chairs.  (Laughter.)        Now, I suspect that these guys are wondering, what kind of introduction is that?  No smoke machine.  (Laughter.)  No fire cannons.  Obama didn't even tear up chunks of turf and rub them on his suit.  (Laughter.)  That reminds me, by the way -- please don't do that on the South Lawn.  (Laughter.)

The recipe is familiar, but with a fresh twist. Mix the salty, crunchy goodness of traditional munchies with the spicy kick reminiscent of Maryland's steamed crabs - and add the power of several professional Baltimore athletes for good measure - and you've got a new line of snacks with hometown flavor. Crab-inspired cheese curls, buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds are some of the product offerings from Home Team Snacks, headquartered in Carroll County. Launched in 2012, the company is the brainchild of Marc Heyman and Jeff Hinton, 49-year-old Baltimore-area natives who grew up in Mount Washington and Catonsville, respectively.

The recent three-day 2014 NCAA Men's Lacrosse championship event at M&T Stadium drew the lowest attendance yet - 78,234 - since Baltimore introduced it to NFL stadiums in 2003. And the Baltimore Ravens, the main stadium tenant, did not submit a bid to host the event in 2015 through 2018 in part because of potential parking lot conflicts during simultaneous Orioles games. How does this happen with a sporting event and geographic region, that seem to be so right for one another? With the sport's national governing body, US Lacrosse, here, along with the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame,  there is little doubt about the depth of both participation and support for the sport locally, and within 100 miles from Baltimore.

Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley had some tough classes at the University of Alabama, but nothing as hard as learning about playing in the National Football League. Mosley has been on a crash course since the Ravens drafted him in the first-round (17th overall) of the NFL draft a few weeks ago. It is eat and sleep football all day, every day. Mosley, though, is finally getting settled. "The biggest adjustment is adjusting to football all day," Mosley said. "You're here at 6 in the morning.

The Ravens have never denied that they liked and had interest in drafting former Towson star running back Terrance West . But they are contesting West's characterization of what transpired during Day 2 of the draft. West told Cleveland reporters over the weekend that the Ravens texted his agent and relayed to him that they were planning on drafting the local standout with the 99th overall pick in the third round. As it turned out, the Browns made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers to get the 94th pick, which they used to select West.

Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis used his platform as an ESPN NFL analyst Thursday night to give his blessing to the team's first-round draft pick, linebacker C.J. Mosley of Alabama. “This is a leader at the position of linebacker,” Lewis said during the ESPN broadcast of the man who could be his heir in the middle of the Baltimore defense. “I left there a couple years ago, but when you watch this kid play football, his instinct is what impresses me the most. He's very patient with his feet, he stays in the pocket and when he gets there ... he's actually a reader.

Thirty years ago last month, the Baltimore Colts left town, and the loss of the beloved NFL franchise was a stunning blow not only to football fans but to the city's identify. Nine years later, Baltimore's image as a sports town suffered another big hit when, after getting passed over for an expansion franchise, then-NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue famously suggested a museum be purchased for the city instead. The beauty of that "Let them eat fossils and Pre-Columbian art" put-down was that it not only implied that an NFL team would never be coming to Baltimore but that the city had a cultural deficit, too. Whatever chip on the shoulder Baltimore had from the day of the Mayflower moving vans suddenly got a lot heavier.

Among the crowd of some 200,000 people who attended the Baltimore Ravens' triumphant parade and celebration in Baltimore on Tuesday were more than a few parents who had to make a choice between letting their children attend and keeping a day of school. One of those was Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz - who attended the festivities at City Hall with his two sons, ages 9 and 11. “I got them back [to school] for the rest of the day,” said Kamenetz, whose boys attend Gilman.

A regional Pennsylvania bank submitted the highest bid at the auction for Baltimore's 1st Mariner Bank in a deal that must still be approved by a federal bankruptcy court judge and banking regulators. National Penn Bank offered $19.1 million for 1st Mariner at Thursday's auction, topping a competing bid from a group with local ties led by New York-based Priam Capital LLC, according to a filing in the bankruptcy of bank parent First Mariner Bancorp. A hearing is scheduled for Monday in Baltimore's U.S. Bankruptcy Court for a judge to rule on the outcome of the auction after hearing any potential objections from creditors of First Mariner.

Several receiving options remain available on the free-agent market and one big name, the Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith, could become available soon. There are a number of veteran offensive linemen who are still unsigned, while the market at safety and middle linebacker - two positions of need for the Ravens - continues to thin out. However, in Day 2 of free agency, the Ravens focused on taking care of their own. After officially signing Eugene Monroe and declaring him their left tackle “for many years to come,” the Ravens struck a four-year deal with Jacoby Jones, keeping one of the heroes of the team's run to the Super Bowl XLVII title in the organization.
