Over the 14 years since losing her right arm to a hollow-point bullet, Dana Burke was convinced she could feel herself pointing, pinching or waving as she motioned with the 5-inch-long limb the attack left behind. Still, she had to relearn how to pull her hair back in a ponytail and tie her shoes. It's a struggle to play horsie with her three children using only one arm for support, and she had to start off with a child's fat crayon to learn to write left-handed. But now, she has proof of what she knew all along.

A Calvert County man was charged yesterday after a car plowed into a crowded Chi-Chi's restaurant in Glen Burnie during a celebration of Mexico's national holiday, injuring three people. The incident began Friday night with an argument between a man and his girlfriend in the restaurant in the 8000 block of Ritchie Highway, according to an Anne Arundel County police spokesman. Sgt. Edward Bergin said the boyfriend left the restaurant, got into his 1993 Lexus ES 300, lined up to the entrance, spun his tires and rammed through a double set of glass doors about 10: 45 p.m. The car continued about five or six feet into the restaurant, according to general manager John McVey.

The room is in a state of tranquil silence as six women slowly move their arms and legs in unison. They listen as instructor Jeff Herrod guides them through the precise, fluid motions of t'ai chi ch'uan. Herrod tells the women exactly how and when to step, turn, breathe and pose. Who they are: Mostly women in their mid- to late 60s and some younger class members. They meet on Saturdays at 9 a.m. at the Elementary T'ai Chi studio on Frederick Road in Catonsville. For more than 18 years, Herrod has owned and taught at the studio.

Position: Right-handed pitcherSize: 6 feet 3, 200 poundsAge: 29Role with Orioles: If the season started today, he'd be the No. 4 starter, between Scott Erickson and Rocky Coppinger. But if the Orioles acquire left-hander Darren Oliver from Texas, as they hope to do, Boskie will be a middle reliever/spot starter.Pluses: Boskie has good stuff and, at times, good control. He gained control of his curveball last summer, which helped him go 10-4 in the first four months of the season.Minuses: For one reason or another, he hasn't pitched consistently.

What has three bedrooms, three and a half baths and a whole lot of Baltimore star appeal? Michael Phelps' Fells Point condo. And it looks like it could be yours if you've got a spare couple million. The listing was spotted (with the help of Sun reporter Jamie Smith Hopkins) on the website of chi-chi Realtor Heidi Krauss. (The news was reported in strangely mysterious fashion by The Real Estalker blog earlier this week.) Phelps name is not mentioned in the listing. But the address is. And according to property records, it's the very Fell Street Michael Phelps bought in October 2007 for $1.69 million.

As we all know, it's not necessarily what you do that matters but how you do it. In response to the Maryland General Assembly's mandate to slash an additional $40 million from this year's fiscal budget, the state's Medicaid Advisory Committee (MAC) and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) are being forced to consider a series of radical cost-cutting measures for the state's Medicaid program. Make no mistake: Spending must be curbed. It's how costs are contained that matters.

Coal Fire could be just another pizza joint. But its location — albeit storefront — in the Ellicott City development of Shipley's Grant gives it a certain cachet. So does the fact that the pizzas, which you can see being prepared in the open kitchen, are cooked in a coal-fired oven. Hence the name, which, as it turns out, is the moniker for a trio of eateries in the area. One in Gaithersburg, the one in Ellicott City, which opened in April of this year, and the newest edition, in Frederick, which premiered in late June.

The state board that licenses and disciplines physicians should distance itself from the medical establishment and open its records to the public, legislative analysts say.The 15-member Board of Physician Quality Assurance, which by law has only three non-physicians, should also add two more consumer members, according to a review by the legislature's Department of Fiscal Services.The recently released audit concludes that while the board's performance has improved in its three years of work, several major changes are still needed to ensure the competency of Maryland's doctors.

ANNAPOLIS -- When a trade association turns 180 degrees on an important issue, there's a legislative axiom that usually helps point to the reason: "Follow the money."Case in point: The state physicians association, known as Med-Chi, is one of the strongest supporters this year of a bill to prohibit doctors from referring patients to medical facilities in which the doctor has a financial interest. Referrals would be allowed in those cases only if the physician actively participates in running the facility.
