It was time for Helen Delich Bentley to be honest about the shop. The Cockeysville antiques business the former congresswoman and her husband opened as a labor of love nearly 40 years ago was just labor these days. Dust was collecting on the early 20th century marble-top sideboards in the basement and the Baltimore Potthast cabinets on the second floor. Business hadn't been brisk at Bentley's Antiques Show Mart for years. It was time to close. The first antiques mall in the state is open for one last weekend, closing today at 5 p.m. -- 36 years after it spawned a row of quaint antiques stores in the small quarry town in northern Baltimore County.

When Miami plays Maryland tomorrow, less than a week after the murder of Hurricanes defensive lineman Bryan Pata, the hurt won't be on just the Miami side. Ray Bentley, the analyst calling the game for ABC, said the players on both teams - on all teams, really - have a connection. "Football is a big fraternity," said Bentley, a former NFL linebacker who works with play-by-play man Dave LaMont. "It's a brotherhood. When we lose someone, we all hurt." Still, Bentley agreed with the decision to go ahead with the game.

By the early 1950s, with Baltimore's aging port facilities worn down from heavy use during World War II and with the neglect of the all-powerful railroads, it was clear that something had to be done. Maryland Gov. Theodore Roosevelt McKeldin, who had been critical of the lack of modern port development, was joined in this sentiment by Baltimore Mayor Thomas J. D'Alesandro Jr. At the time, the port was largely a bulk handler of coal, grain and ore, and it was in danger of losing its competitive edge.

Montgomery jury convicts Muhammad A jury convicted John Allen Muhammad, 45, of murder in the 2002 sniper shootings that left six people dead in Montgomery County. Circuit Judge James L. Ryan sentenced him to six consecutive life terms with no possibility of parole. Maryland reverts to old BGE plan State utility regulators said a judge's order striking down a plan to defer part of BGE's 72 percent rate increase has forced them to at least temporarily revive an earlier plan that features a smaller rate cut and charges customers interest.

The port of Baltimore was renamed last night for Helen Delich Bentley, whose work on its behalf over a half-century as a journalist, legislator and consultant was born of a devotion to the city's waterfront instilled by her mother, who'd arrived by steamship. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. officially named the state's public marine terminals the "Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore" yesterday evening, creating a permanent legacy for the former congresswoman. The governor made the announcement at the South Locust Point cruise ship terminal during the port of Baltimore's 300th anniversary fundraising gala, the centerpiece of a campaign to raise the profile of the industrial facility that employs thousands and contributes millions of dollars to the economy.
