For documentary filmmakers and Annapolis residents Patti White and Lee Anderson, establishing a film festival in their hometown wasn't a labor of love. It was a no-brainer. White and Anderson, business partners since 1990 when they founded an Annapolis-based production company now known as Filmsters, have traveled the film-festival circuit across America and always believed Maryland's capital was a natural for an industry "close-up. " "We've been to festivals in Colorado Springs - they have mountains, we have water - but the towns are not much different," White said.

WASHINGTON -- Practically everyone now agrees: the nation's capital city is coming back.Some of the improvements are in services: Potholes are getting filled, trash picked up, dead trees replaced. The drug problem is abating and crime is sinking. Decrepit schools are getting repaired. Vendors are being paid, tax refunds issued.Then there's downtown Washington, on a dramatic upswing. A new MCI sports arena, new restaurants and shops are bringing back life, even on weekday nights. A business-financed improvement district providing sanitation services and extra security accounted for 82 tons of trash pickup and contributed to a 32 percent drop in crime in the district's first six months.

In the crisp autumn wind, as leaves fill gutters and darkness falls ever earlier on the Colonial-era streets of Maryland's capital city, ghost season arrives in Annapolis. "Dying trees, boy, that's the good stuff," folklorist Ed Okonowicz said. "Everything adds to the ambience. I'd rather do a graveyard tour in October than any other month of the year. " Annapolis is among his favorite haunts. The three-century-old city boasts enough bump-in-the-night tales to support two competing ghost tours and two books on the topic, both published within the past five years, the most recent one this fall.

Geppi solidified his dominance of the comics distribution business yesterday by buying a major competitor and adding $50 million in sales to his company.With the purchase of Capital City Distribution Inc., Geppi's Diamond Comic Distributors Inc. of Timonium will book considerably more than $200 million in annual sales, boosting it back toward its 1993 peak. The deal won't increase Diamond's employment in Timonium much, however."It's a substantial recapture for us," said Geppi, who also owns Baltimore Magazine and who is a minority shareholder of the Orioles.

The forecasts say 4 inches of snow are expected, but be prepared for a blizzard -- Jim Cantore is coming. The Weather Channel meteorologist, whose Twitter bio says he is "[a]lways awaiting mother natures latest temper tantrum", plans to do morning live shots from Baltimore, he said on the microblogging website Monday afternoon. Cantore is known for coming to town any time extreme weather strikes.  Of course, mayhem doesn't always follow Cantore. He reported from Washington, D.C., last March when the capital city, as well as Baltimore, were forecast to get hit with a snowstorm dubbed by many the "Snowquester".

Minutes after being sworn in as the new mayor of Annapolis on Monday, Mike Pantelides vowed to be a watchdog on city finances, and also to work on issues facing the state capital from crime to a sluggish business climate. In his inauguration speech at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Pantelides offered few specifics on those broad issues, but did promise to hold open sessions once a month to listen to concerns of Annapolis residents, and repeated a refrain from his campaign, that "God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason" - saying people should spend twice as much time listening as talking.

Josh Cohen says he was at the sink doing dishes when his mind began to wander. His thoughts landed on Annapolis' failing dam at Waterworks Park. Should it be repaired? Should it be breached to allow water to flow through into a stream? As he contemplated the options, it suddenly dawned on him: The dam isn't something he needs to worry about any more. "It hit me," Cohen recalls. "I'm not going to be mayor. " After 12 years in public office, the last four as mayor of Annapolis, Cohen will leave office Monday as Mike Pantelides is sworn in as the capital city's next mayor.

Annapolis Alderman Ross Arnett made a proposal last weekend that made waves from the capital city across the country: to change the city's form of government to give the mayor less power. Many conservatives - including radio host Rush Limbaugh - criticized Arnett's proposal as a cheap shot from a Democrat trying to steal power from the Republican mayor-elect, Mike Pantelides. Arnett said that he has been badly misunderstood and that he has supported this idea for years, even during the terms of the past two Democratic mayors.

Mike Pantelides can't go anywhere these days without being stopped. Walking down Main Street to a meeting, he meets people offering ideas. At a post-workout stop at the drug store, someone wants to talk to him. In the Market House, a merchant offers a fresh fruit smoothie - on the house. That's what comes with being mayor of Annapolis, population 38,620. It's a city small enough that residents get to know their politicians on a first-name basis, and they aren't shy about voicing concerns.

Annapolis voters will choose Tuesday who will lead the capital city for the next four years: incumbent Democratic Mayor Josh Cohen or Republican newcomer Mike Pantelides. Cohen says he'd continue to correct the city's financial woes, carry out a new vision for City Dock, and improve parking and transportation.

Baltimore officials say Detroit's bankruptcy filing this week is a cautionary tale for the city that underscores the need to fix a $750 million structural deficit before the situation here grows similarly dire. "It is on my mind every day," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Friday, the day after Detroit became the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy protection. "Once you know that's a possibility, you have to spend the rest of your time trying to prevent it. " Bankruptcy is not currently an option for Baltimore, or any jurisdiction in Maryland - the General Assembly has passed no law to authorize such a move.
