Senior defenseman Parker Bratton is fully expected to make his customary start when No. 4 Stevenson welcomes No. 13 Lynchburg to Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills for Wednesday night's NCAA tournament quarterfinal. Whether the Baltimore native and McDonogh graduate plays the entire 60 minutes is a different matter. Bratton, who is tied for fourth on the team in caused turnovers with 17 and ranks seventh in ground balls with 47, has been bothered by a turned ankle suffered about two weeks ago. Coach Paul Cantabene said he is not too worried about Bratton, who has missed two games this season.

Baltimore's spending panel on Wednesday unanimously approved $285,000 for city police to hire a Massachusetts-based consultant — the highest of five bidders — to recommend how the department should be run. Despite the protests of competing consultants and a city councilman, the city's Board of Estimates, which is controlled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, voted 5-0 to hire Strategic Policy Partnership LLC, based in Martha's Vineyard, to...

LOS ANGELES - The televised police beating of a suspected car thief last week will test two years of efforts by police chief William J. Bratton to win over black residents. But it also strikes at Bratton's deeper and more ambitious agenda: fixing America's race problem by fixing its crime problem. "What is it that keeps this country so on edge?" asked Bratton, a former New York City police commissioner who took the Los Angeles job in the fall of 2002. "It's race." Putting his theories on race relations into practice is one of the reasons he came to the Los Angeles Police Department, Bratton said.

Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's call for greater local control in regulating handguns is an interesting idea -- for headlines.Even though Sen. John Pica is volunteering to introduce such legislation, it has little chance of getting passed in Annapolis. Regardless of how bad violent crime gets in Baltimore, legislators are unlikely to permit the city to enact any gun laws of its own because the state law pre-empts local regulation of firearms and ammunition.In the past, Baltimore City politicians have repeatedly tried to find a way to get specific city-focused firearms laws on the books.

ATLANTA -- Rod Bratton and his family left one tragedy last week and headed right into another.The family is from Montoursville, Pa., and Bratton, his wife, Jeanne, and their two teen-age sons knew most of the 21 people from that town who died in the crash of TWA Flight 800.The Brattons were sitting at a table late yesterday afternoon outside Olympic Stadium, waiting to get into the second night of the track and field competition. Just as what happened to their neighbors and friends on Flight 800 will not prevent them from flying in the future, what happened here early yesterday at Centennial Olympic Park will not deter them from attending the 1996 Olympic Games.

NEW YORK -- A package bomb that killed a supervising high school guidance counselor in 1982 was apparently sent by the same person who, after an 11-year hiatus, mailed three similar explosives, including one that sprayed bullet fragments at TC pregnant woman in Queens County on Tuesday.Police Commissioner William J. Bratton and Greg Rhatigan, a Postal Service investigator, said they did not know why the lethal packages had been sent, why the addresses to which they were delivered had been chosen, or why there was an 11-year gap between the first and second incidents.

The Baltimore Police Department is asking the city for $285,000 to hire a Massachusetts-based consultant — the highest of five bidders — to recommend how the department should be run. But a city councilman is questioning the need for a consultant. And he says he's concerned that the department is bypassing lower bidders for a company with ties to former Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton, an ally of Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts. "In these tough economic times, we have to think about saving taxpayer dollars," said Councilman Brandon Scott, who has called for a hearing on the contract.

The former police chief of Boston, New York and Los Angeles says Baltimore's next commissioner must be on the same page with the mayor, and he thinks an outsider can provide a fresh perspective under the right circumstances. William J. Bratton, perhaps the most well-known name in policing, said in an interview that there should be no shortage of candidates to become Baltimore's next commissioner, but that he knows some who considered applying and opted to stay away. He declined to name them.

When the Bratton twins, Rhamel and Shamel, were being recruited out of high school in Huntington, N.Y., all the college coaches knew they were cocky, arrogant and full of themselves. Not much has changed the last four years during their stay at Virginia. The question, though, is can No. 9 Virginia (9-5) survive without the two dominating midfielders and make a serious run deep into the post season? Shamel Bratton (20 goals, eight assists) was dismissed from team and Rhamel (17, 5)
