No one wants to pull the plug on the Baltimore Beltway Classic, but no one seems willing to take measures necessary to keep it alive, either.The fourth Beltway Classic -- and apparently the last in this format -- will be held this weekend at UMBC. On Friday, Loyola and Mount St. Mary's meet at 6 p.m., and two-time champion Towson State plays UMBC at 8. On Saturday, the consolation game is at 6, the championship at 8.UMBC is the last of the four to be host to the tournament, and athletic directors from the participating schools have yet to make a final decision on its future.

A report of a chemical spill prompted authorities to close part of the Baltimore Beltway for nearly two hours yesterday and to ask Virginia police to help them find a Texas-bound tanker.The outer loop of the Beltway was closed at Cromwell Bridge Road from about noon to 2 p.m. while hazardous materials workers donned protective suits and sprayed foam on a van suspected of being contaminated with a poisonous chemical. Battalion Chief Mark Hubbard, a spokesman for the Baltimore County fire department, said tests did not confirm the presence of the chemical, benzyl chloride, in the van.Meanwhile, the tanker said to have leaked the chemical drove on, en route to Texas via Interstate 81, police said.

The State Highway Administration will spend $6.8 million to design an improved interchange at the Beltway and Charles Street -- a move it says will add traffic capacity and create a more attractive gateway to Lutherville. The project will include replacement of the 51-year-old Charles Street Bridge with a wider span that will accommodate the addition of lanes to the Beltway, according to the agency. The state also announced it will spend $4.3 million to continue widening the west side of the Beltway by adding a fourth outer-loop lane between Ingleside Avenue and Frederick Road.

It's the end of the road for Beltway Gourmet. WBAL radio is dropping the weekly restaurant feature after 21 years. Doug Roberts, a local actor and voice-over artist who first cooked up the segment and continued doing it all these years as a station freelancer, said it was a great gig while it lasted. "I don't know of a freelance job ever being 21 years long," Roberts said. Or anything in radio lasting that long, for that matter. Amid a tough economy, WBAL honchos decided that Beltway Gourmet had to go. The Thursday morning feature will stop at the end of the month.

The world is a different place when you look at it through the squinty eyes of a harried rush-hour commuter.Basically, it's a kind of blurry place.This, we humbly postulate, is a major reason why the region's highways have suffered annoying traffic backups in recent weeks.Blame it on the sun. With autumnal sunrises coming just before the peak of morning rush hour and sunsets coming just after the peak of the evening rush hour, these are the times that try men's -- and women's -- optic nerves.
