A third suspect might have been involved in a double homicide in Brooklyn Park, a crime that left a homicide witness dead and set free a man charged with murder. Though Anne Arundel County police announced charges in November against two men in the Aug. 28 deaths of Dequincey Antonio Smith, 24, and Dontay Lamont Williams, 21, court records indicate that a third person was in the getaway car. Shawn Lamont Weaver is charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree murder and is being held in the Baltimore city jail in an unrelated incident.

Whether it's turkey and stuffing for 20 or tofu and veggies for two that you'll be making this Thanksgiving, chances are you'll have to go out for groceries. But you don't have to just share the holiday spending - er, spirit - with the area's bustling supermarket chains and massive commercial food marts. You can spread the love to your local farmers and mom-and-pop growers, too. The Baltimore Farmers' Market is a good place to start. Located under the Jones Falls Expressway at Holliday and Saratoga streets, the weekly, Sunday-morning bazaar abounds with fresh fruits, vegetables and homemade goodies that were produced in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Directed and choreographed for this tour by Baayork Lee, who originated the role of Connie on Broadway, the latest edition of the Michael Bennett-conceived show features a number of performers who are themselves "Chorus Line" veterans.
