The way Joseph Carroll sees it, he has a second chance at life with his family. "I'll take that," Carroll, a 59-year-old Army veteran and father of four who brought back from Vietnam a propensity toward alcohol abuse. Now, after a spell on the streets and a five-month stint at The Baltimore Station, a treatment center whose population is made up mostly of military veterans, Carroll plans to return to his wife in Portsmouth, Va., after Thanksgiving. "If she don't change her mind," he said, laughing.

An autopsy has confirmed that a man who was fatally shot inside of a Baltimore Police district station died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, prosecutors said. Tyree Woodson, 38, had been taken into custody on Aug. 5 in connection with a shooting investigation and was held for hours before asking to go to the bathroom, where the shooting occurred. Police said at the time that the gunshot wound was believed to be self-inflicted, which prosecutors say the autopsy confirmed. The autopsy was completed two weeks ago, but the results were not disclosed until this week.

By 6 a.m., the free parking lot at the West Baltimore MARC station is almost full. The only sounds on the rickety wooden platform: cars whizzing by on U.S. 40, the blare of a police siren and the horn of the incoming train, a cue for the sweep of people that rushes inside. This is no Penn Station. There are no coffee shops or places to buy a paper, just mounds of trash along the side and a few partial shelters that don't do much good in the rain and snow. But city and state planners view the threadbare West Baltimore train station as the potential key to unleashing the redevelopment of an area long neglected and decimated by an unfortunate endeavor dubbed "the highway to nowhere."

Longtime WMAR news anchor Stan Stovall is being dismissed by the Baltimore station when his contract lapses at the end of December. WMAR general manager Drew Berry and news director Staci Feger-Childers would not discuss the decision other than to praise Stovall's professionalism, saying the move is a personnel matter. But the two officials acknowledge they are taking a series of steps to try to reverse the fortunes of the consistently third-rated station. "I definitely will be leaving," Stovall said late Friday.

If you wanted any real sense of what was going on in the first hour after primary election polls closed Tuesday night, you had to go online or, better yet, plug into Twitter, because TV didn't seem to be trying hard at all. I am not talking about anything as bold and daring as the network affiliates actually interrupting or, God forbid, pre-empting reruns. I am talking about such basic business as putting tickers or crawls on the bottom of the screen with early vote totals as they came in. I was seeing few of them as I kept switching among WBAL (Channel 11)

Passengers at Baltimore's Penn Station and about 10,000 folks in Harford County lost electricity in two separate outages Thursday, said Rachael Lighty, a Baltimore Gas & Electric spokeswoman. The lights went out at Penn Station around 4:30 p.m. and came back on a little over an hour later. The tracks weren't affected, and MARC and Amtrak officials said neither service saw delays because of it. Lighty said an issue with an underground power cable to the building caused the outage.

Listeners of the Big Phat Morning Show on 92Q (WERQ) got a surprise when they turned on their radios yesterday morning. The on-air team of Troy Johnson, Marc Clarke and Sonjay, known for its lively discussions of current events, social issues and politics sandwiched between Jay-Z and Chingy tunes, was no longer intact. In typical radio fashion, the changes came swiftly and silently -- with no on-air explanation offered to listeners. Johnson was told Friday that his contract wouldn't be extended, the longtime DJ said.

A Maryland state senator who heads the General Assembly's veteran's caucus rebuked Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler Tuesday night over the Democratic gubernatorial candidate's claim he could fix problems with federal processing of veterans' claims better than his campaign rival. Sen. Douglas J. J. Peters of Prince George's County criticized Gansler for claiming he would reduce the delays in processing by the Veterans Administration where Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown , his rival for the Democratic nomination, has not. The Baltimore office of the VA has some of the worst claims-processing times in the nation, and Gansler blamed Brown for that Monday after the lieutenant governor released a five-point plan for veterans.
