Over the past 15 years, David Bowie has done everything expected of a rock star -- marrying a model (Iman), acting in films (most recently in "Basquiat"), concocting massive media events (such as his recent 50th Birthday Party at Madison Square Garden) -- except make albums like the ones that made him a star in the first place.Oh, sure, he's made some interesting music along the way, from the artful electronics of "Black Tie White Noise" to the thinking-man's metal that fleshed out his two albums with Tin Machine.

Economic good news is a scarce commodity in Annapolis these days, but the latest addition to the University of Maryland's research park in Bowie gives state officials reasons to cheer. If all goes as planned, the U.S. Census Bureau will install a supercomputer on a 446-acre tract in eastern Prince George's County, a move that takes the state a big step closer toward creating an information technology hub at UM's Bowie park.The import of this deal goes beyond the 100 jobs it is expected to generate.

BOWIE -- Two thousand free souvenir baseball caps went in about an hour that afternoon last August. The crowd kept coming: children and their parents lining up at Rip's Restaurant for a brush with sports celebrity. Not Cal Ripken, not Mike Devereaux or even Jeff Tackett, but members of the Baysox.That's the Bowie Baysox. As in minor league baseball, Double A, as in a bunch of guys in their early 20s, each making about $1,500 a month to pursue at best a one-in-five shot of making the majors.

The Bowie Baysox will shell out $20,000 to repair Prince George's Stadium after the storm on June 29 damaged parts of the ballpark, according to a report by the Gazette of Montgomery County. The damages are largely cosmetic, but the outfield wall in right-centerfield is visibly caved in. In addition, three tents along the concourse were damaged, including one that was completely destroyed. The Baysox have been able to play home games since the storm, despite what general manager Brian Shallcross called the “the most damage that we've had.” The Gazette reported that repairs for the outfield wall were planned to begin on Tuesday, and the tents are scheduled to be repaired or replaced later this month.
