If City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway really thinks she's going to get $21 million out of Examiner columnist Adam Meister, she'd better hurry. Looks like he's about to spend a fortune. An invite he's posted on Facebook reads: "Adam Meister's $21 million 4th of July Party. " Conaway is suing Meister and Examiner newspapers over an online column he wrote claiming that she lives in Baltimore County instead of the city she represents. He linked to public records indicating that Conaway not only owns a house in the county, but claims it as her primary residence for tax purposes.

Marilyn J. Mosby defeated Baltimore City State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein on Tuesday after criticizing him for failing to live up to promises he made four years ago to win the office. Bernstein conceded shortly before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. "We have left the office in a much better place," Bernstein said, "an office that is more effective, more efficient and more professional. " When Bernstein took office in 2011 after defeating incumbent Patricia C. Jessamy, he promised to boost conviction rates and focus on violent crime in Baltimore.

Two Democrats who lost in close Baltimore City Council campaigns in September say they're not giving up. Incumbent 7th District Councilwoman Belinda Conaway and 13th District challenger Shannon Sneed have launched write-in campaigns for the November general election, seeking to defeat the candidates who beat them in the Sept. 13 primary. Longtime political observers said they've never heard of a successful write-in campaign in Baltimore, but the primary election's record-low voter turnout could give the challengers hope.

Evelyn W. Pasquier, who as a senior associate with the old Baltimore law firm of Frank, Bernstein, Conaway and Goldman played a pivotal role in the resolution of the Maryland savings and loan crisis of the mid-1980s, died April 24 in her sleep of unknown causes at her Symphony Center home on Bolton Hill. She was 83. "Evelyn was my right-hand person when Gov. Harry R. Hughes asked me to take charge in all matters relating to Old Court Savings and Loan in 1985," said Shale D. Stiller, who is now a partner at DLA Piper.

Frank M. Conaway says he had nothing to do with emails that first called and then canceled a news conference Thursday at which he was supposedly to make an "important announcement. " The messages, which hit inboxes on the first day of early voting in the Democratic mayoral primary, set off speculation that Conaway was planning to withdraw from the race, as he did in 2007. But Conaway, one of several candidates challenging Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in the Sept. 13 primary, said he did not send the emails.

Frank M. Conaway Sr., the elected clerk of the Baltimore Circuit Court, thinks the city's jury commissioner has bungled the way people are summoned for jury duty. He wants to take over the job, and he argued his case Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee in Annapolis. No one was there to oppose him. Conaway has the backing of Del. Curt Anderson, a Democrat who chairs the city delegation and agreed to sponsor legislation fulfilling the court clerk's desires. Conaway hugged the committee's tough-minded chairman, Joseph F. Vallario Jr., who made sure the former two-term delegate (he served 1971 to 1975 and from 1979 to 1983)

I strongly disagree with Frank Conaway Sr.'s premise in a recent letter to the editor that people who lost their extended unemployment benefits will "have no choice but to take matters in their own hands, robbing and stealing to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads" ( "End of unemployment benefits will hit Baltimore hard," Jan. 5). The "give me free money or I'll rob you" analogy is insulting and shortsighted. People who are morally bankrupt enough to rob and steal are most likely content with the free handout from the government for as long as it lasts.

Baltimore Circuit Court Clerk Frank M. Conaway Sr. reacted with disbelief upon hearing that an illegitimate tax break was inexplicably on the property tax bill for a rental home he owns in Northwest Baltimore — again. "No, it's not," he insisted recently to a reporter. Yet there it was, in black and white: City records showed Conaway wrongly received a $396 homestead credit on the house for the current tax year, which started last July. Conaway thought he'd resolved this issue for good.

No criminal charges will be filed against Baltimore Clerk of Courts Frank M. Conaway Sr. or blogger Adam Meister stemming from a November altercation outside Conaway's home.  The determination was made by Steven Kroll, a special prosecutor appointed by State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein to handle the investigation. "I found that the state could not prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt," Kroll said in a brief interview. Police had said that on Nov. 20, officers had witnessed Meister try to kick Conaway and saw Conaway display a handgun that state police said had an expired permit. Both men potentially faced charges; a police report described Meister's actions as a "common assault," and classified the report about Conaway's weapon as a "handgun violation.

Circuit Court Clerk Frank M. Conaway Sr. has paid more than $3,600 in back property taxes on a rental home he owns, months after it emerged that he'd wrongly been receiving a homestead tax break on the house for years. "I was very happy to pay it, to tell you the truth," he said Tuesday. "If I owed it, I wanted to pay it. " Conaway paid the bill Dec. 21, the same day city finance officials were quoted in a Baltimore Sun article saying they were still awaiting a check from him. Conaway says that's the first time he knew how much money he owed.
