As one might anticipate, the anointing of a new head coach has led to some changes at Hood. Brad Barber, an assistant coach under Jeremy Mattoon who was promoted in July after Matton and the school parted ways, is careful not to criticize his predecessor. But Barber did say that the players' attitude is different thus far. “This is a new year, and one of the biggest things we did this fall in fall ball was we really understood the type of athletes that we have,” he said. “We tried to put in a new mentality, and everyone's bought in. Everyone's on the same page, everyone's accepted their responsibility, we're getting out in the community more.

City officials are set to consider $113,000 in payments to settle two lawsuits alleging police brutality, including a case in which a well-known 77-year-old barber's arm was broken during an arrest. Baltimore's Board of Estimates is scheduled to vote Wednesday on an award of $63,000 to Lenny Clay, the West Baltimore barber at Lenny's House of Naturals whose case sparked protests in 2009. The spending panel also has before it a $50,000 settlement with Anthony Keyes, 42, whom officers shocked with a Taser before arresting him on charges that were later dismissed.

Last week I took my father, who is 102 years old, to Syle's Barber Shop for his monthly haircut as I have done for the past five years. The month before I could not get his wheelchair up the two steps into the shop so Mark Slye cut his hair outside in front of the shop. When we arrived last week, Mark met us at the door and informed us he had built a special ramp so Dad could get into the shop. I just wanted to share to people in Laurel what a kind gesture and much-appreciated kindness this was. Betty Fulton West Laurel

Ilias "Louis" Sabracos, a fixture in Baltimore's Greek community who owned several successful businesses, including a barbershop and diner, died Wednesday at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center after suffering a stroke.

He later joined the Greek army, and after his military service was completed, he went to work as a barber.

'Modern Terrorism' Imagine "Homeland" with a laugh track. You cannot help but admire the nerve of playwright Jon Kern (a writer for "The Simpsons") in tackling such intensely emotional and divisive material, and fleshing out so vividly the three characters who, in their sparsely furnished Brooklyn apartment, nonchalantly plan to rain destruction on a Manhattan landmark. But even 12 years after 9/11, are we really ready to laugh at Muslim terrorists? Maybe. There's certainly fun to be had with the sitcom-worthy portion of the dialogue and antics, starting with the play-opening, bombs-in-the-briefs scene.

This past season, Hood labored its way through a 3-14 season, which included a winless 0-8 record in the Middle Atlantic Conference and the jettisoning of head coach Jeremy Mattoon. But assistant coach Brad Barber predicated that the team would reverse course next spring. “Next year, I think it's going to be a totally different story,” he said. “If we have this conversation next year, I think you'll have a totally different view of Hood College lacrosse.

A shave and a haircut of yesteryear cost the proverbial two bits, 25 cents. A shave alone at The Old Bank Barbers, a soon-to-open barber shop on The Avenue in Hampden, will cost $25. It won't be any old shave, though. Owner Daniel Wells promises an old-fashioned, full-face, straight-edge shave, complete with hot lather, in a leather chair with a headrest that leans back. "It's an old-school barber shop with the tile floors," said Wells, who hopes to open this month at 1100 W. 36th St., the former site of Sixteen Tons, a men's clothing store.
