I scream, you scream.... OK, we can all stop screaming now.  Ben & Jerry's is giving away free ice cream today.  A truck promoting the company's new flavors will be parked at 500 W. Baltimore Street at 2:30 this afternoon, according to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's office. The mayor helped make Baltimore a stop on Ben & Jerry's summer promotional tour, according to the news release.  Keep that in mind at election time. The latest Ben & Jerry's flavors feature a core of gooey yumminess, such as salted caramel, peanut butter fudge or raspberry jam. The truck will be parked in a designated food-truck area.   The City Council recently approved legislation expanding the areas in which food trucks can park.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton will take his first tentative steps beyond the Beltway since his impeachment, traveling to Baltimore today to demonstrate his presidential stature as momentum grows for a negotiated settlement to end the threat to his presidency.The unveiling of annual grants to combat homelessness would ordinarily attract little attention.But today's excursion to Baltimore is an event tailor-made to show that Clinton still has the ability to lead the country, improve the lives of ordinary Americans and weather the political firestorm of impeachment.

Forget that namby pamby Elf on the Shelf stuff -- if you really want to get your kids to behave at Christmas time, tell them about Krampus. Krampus is a sort of anti-Claus, a horned beast who stuffs bad children in his sack. He brandishes birch branches, rattles chains and spirits away naughty kids to eat them, drown them or take them on a holiday tour of hell.   Krampus' tongue is forked, his hooves cloven, and we can only imagine that his matted fur smells like the remains of last year's Christmas roast.  He makes his first appearances in early German folklore, but seems to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, as evidenced by this and this and this . From 7 to 9 tonight, Krampus will be terrifying children of all ages at Bazaar,  3534 Chestnut Ave. in Hampden.

I MOVED TO NORTHEAST Baltimore 17 years ago primarily because my wife and I wanted to raise our three boys in a racially integrated community. Today, new neighbors of mine of both races tell me that this, too, is why they chose to move to Northeast Baltimore. For the past three years, I have served on the Thompson vs. HUD Advisory Council, whose role is to help Baltimore officials implement the court ordered consent decree to relocate public housing families. Our new mayor, Martin O'Malley, and housing commissioner did not participate in these three years of deliberations and, unfortunately, were not aware of the fruits of these sessions.

Salvador Bru, whose paintings are currently on exhibit at the C. Grimaldis Gallery, has lived in Valencia and Barcelona, Spain, and in California, New York and Florida; he presently resides with his wife and son in the suburbs of Washington. But he has a spacious loft studio in West Baltimore, and he loves it for several reasons.For one thing, the price is right. Without talking specifically about what he pays, he says, "When I lived in New York, I knew an Italian sculptor who went back to Italy for several years, and he said I could use his studio if I would pay for the utilities.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver and longtime Ravens nemesis Hines Ward has a new job as analyst for NBC's "Football Night in America. " But he's still feeling the old "hate" when he comes to Baltimore. Ward, who will be working in Baltimore tonight during the prime-time matchup between the Ravens and New England Patriots, posted this little chronicle on the "hate" he received on his journey to Baltimore for the game. Judging for all the parenthetical "haha's," I'm guessing there's some tongue in cheek from Ward here, but he was a much better receiver than he is a writer, so I am not so sure.

Years ago I developed immunity to complaints that Baltimore was changing, hence, going to the dogs, fast becoming a Detroit. As a child, I sat around the kitchen table and audited stories about how the tablecloths once sold at O'Neill's were inherently superior and there was never an ice cream parlor to equal Cooper's or Doebereiner's. There was a lesson to be learned in the cranky wisdom of my elders: If something is good today, go and enjoy it now. The best stuff will not last. And, like a good memory savings account, it's nice to have something to tap into years later.

They set alarm clocks to stake out early risers on street corners and at subway stops. They waved and paced and gripped the hands of people on their way to work. They pressed stickers onto work shirts and marched signs around busy lunchrooms. They wiped sweat from their faces over the long, humid afternoon and then chugged caffeinated beverages, hoping to keep it up as long as they needed to - because it was all the time they had left. Candidates hoping to attract Baltimore's vote in today's city primary wrung everything possible from the waning hours of the campaign yesterday.

Baltimoreans overwhelmingly believe that crime is the most important challenge facing the city and that crime is damaging the city's economy, according to a new poll conducted for The Sun. The poll by the independent firm OpinionWorks of Annapolis suggests that fear of crime has pervaded the entire city. More than one in four residents say they've considered moving out because of crime, and almost half say crime has prompted them to change something in their daily lives. "We do not go out after sunset because of all the shootings in our area," said Gary G. Steffe, a 60-year-old Brooklyn resident.
