Defense attorneys spent an hour grilling Baltimore-based lawyer Susan Burke, a national figure in combating sexual assaults in the military. They suggested that she had pressured her client into pursuing charges against the football players to further her own cause. "She is trying to push the complaining witness through this process," said Ronald "Chip" Harrington, a civilian attorney for Midshipman Eric Graham.

A GREAT puppeteer must do more than make puppets dance. They must be fed. The arts organization needs to raise, manage and spend money effectively, or the puppets are on their own. Major arts organizations employ professionals in these exotic disciplines. Smaller organizations must master fiscal arts on the side. That's why it is reassuring that National Arts Stabilization and the Baltimore Arts Stabilization Committee have taken on a second round of mid-size clients. These four diverse organizations are firmly rooted and growing.

Jeff Quinton was laid off from an information-technology job in early July and immediately began sending out resumes and making calls to find a new gig. At first, nothing. The Perry Hall resident, 35, got a few robot e-mail acknowledgments of his application and a rejection. Nothing like a real prospect. His health coverage runs out at the end of the month. This week the phone started to ring. A recruiting agency in Hanover was beefing up its help desk. A social media company in Washington was expanding.

Tommy Whittington, who lives in Westlake Village, Calif., returned to his old East Baltimore neighborhood and haunts last week. The former screen painter and retired hotel executive was in town to make an appearance Wednesday evening at a screening of The Screen Painters, a 1988 documentary about the Baltimore folk art, at the Patterson Theatre. "Geez, I remember when the Patterson was a dumping ground, but, boy, is it nice now," said Whittington, in a telephone interview from his niece's Canton home the other day. "There were hundreds of people there including members of some of the old screen-painting families," said Whittington, who is 77. While the screen paintings of the Oktavec clan, Johnny Eck, and brothers Ben and Ted Richardson are the stuff of local legend, Whittington's name and work might not be as well known.
