Weyman D. Swagger, a Baltimore Sun news photographer who became the paper's first photo editor, died of cancer Wednesday at his Halethorpe home. He was 66. During his 47 years at the paper, he took thousands of photos. He was shot at while taking photos during the 1968 city riots, chronicled the 1976 visit of the Tall Ships to the harbor and photographed the 1977 inauguration of President Jimmy Carter. Colleagues admired his portrait work. Born in Beverly, W.Va., Mr. Swagger wrote of growing up on a farm where there was no electricity or telephone.

Nonetheless, there have been times in the past 175 years when the newspaper itself has made news and Sun staffer members have found themselves on the other side of the spiral notebook. Below are just a few examples: • The Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 It might have begun when someone discarded a burning cigarette in the basement of a downtown office building Feb. 7. Thirty-one hours later, when the conflagration was finally brought under control, an 80-block area of downtown Baltimore had been destroyed, causing more than $150 million in damage - in 1904 dollars.

Members of the union representing most of The Baltimore Sun's newsroom employees voted to approve a two-year contract extension Wednesday evening that freezes wages. The union, the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, supported the extension. The Sun's parent, the Tribune Co., expects to spin off its newspapers as a separate company this summer, and Guild leaders said the current contract offers employees stability and protection. A Baltimore Sun spokeswoman said the company was happy with the results.

The Baltimore Sun's experts make their predictions for the Week 17 game between the Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. Monique Jones Bengals 17, Ravens 14 There is quite a bit on the line for both teams, but the Bengals aren't going to just give in because they've already made the playoffs. The Ravens are going to need to be better than they have been the previous two weeks to walk away with a win. Mike Preston Ravens 21, Bengals 17 The Ravens have too much pride to go out with that egg they laid last week.
