An Eastern Shore hospital scheduled for closure next month is seeking a preliminary injunction to remain open, according to court papers filed this week. Upper Shore Hospital in Chestertown is to close Feb. 28 as part of a series of cuts proposed by state officials in light of revenue shortfalls, according to court papers. The closing would save the state about $2.7 million. The petition for an injunction, filed in Kent County Circuit Court, alleges that the closing of the hospital would be an improper exercise of gubernatorial power by Gov. Martin O'Malley.

The drug war is fought on the streets with undercover buys and corner sweeps that make the news. It's also fought with secret wiretaps and long hours of surveillance to target some of the bigger gangs in Baltimore. The drug war is also fought at airports and through the mail with monitoring devices hidden in the bottoms of brown slip-on sandals. This case begins in Chanmagua Esquipalas, Guatemala, travels through Miami and ends on O'Donnell Street in Southeast Baltimore. In one way, it demonstrates the various ways smugglers try to get cocaine into Baltimore — not all narcotics are hidden in cars driven up to New York on Interstate 95. It also shows the lengths law enforcement goes to track down shipments of drugs.

A Baltimore man's 30-year combined federal sentence, once held up as a major law enforcement success, was overturned Friday, along with two of his three convictions when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit Court ruled that Collin Hawkins deserved another day in court. Hawkins, 27, was convicted last year on three charges that should not have been tried together, the judges said. Consequently, they remanded his carjacking and gun possession convictions to Baltimore U.S. District Court for a new trial.
