O nly in hindsight did it strike anyone as odd: Carrie John never seemed to invite friends and neighbors into her Ridgely's Delight rowhouse. Instead, she would meet friends out, or people would watch from the corner to make sure she got in after a night at the bar. "None of us ever went inside," said a friend, Julie Della-Maria. The reason might have been the "huge gardens" of marijuana and assorted pills that police found on the day John, a 29-year-old drug abuse researcher, died after injecting what she thought was a narcotic.

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, already a known Annapolis arts destination, solidified that role last Sunday with a celebration unveiling the results of its $1.6 million renovation - a project that includes 543 new seats, an orchestra pit, stage extension and improved acoustics. Brief performances were offered by Maryland Hall's four resident companies: Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Chorale and Ballet Theatre of Maryland. The 170 voices of the Annapolis Chorale, together with the chamber orchestra, opened the concert auspiciously with "O fortuna" from "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff.

What can I do to cut the cost?A: A refrigerator, especially a large older one, is one of the primary electricity consumers in your home. It can easily add more than $100 to your annual electric bills. Fortunately, there are many no- and low-cost methods to significantly cut its operating costs.For about $20, you can install an energy-saving clear refrigerator curtain across the door opening.

In the movie "The Wizard of Oz", the great and powerful Wizard uttered the words "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" So who is the man, or woman, behind the curtain offering the media damaging leaks about Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler ( "Gansler says he made 'a mistake,' Oct. 24)? Whoever it may be, this person is devoid of a heart, certainly possesses no courage and doesn't have the brains to realize what they are doing is potentially damaging to his or her credibility as well.

Governor Oz is at it again ("O'Malley to push stricter gun limits," Jan. 15). Other than distracting law enforcement and regulatory personnel from their worthwhile efforts and imposing fruitless burdens on them and costs on the people of Maryland, Gov. Martin O'Malley's fanciful legislative scheme will have no significant effect on gun crime, especially in Baltimore. His proposed assault weapons ban, like the Federal ban from 1994 to 2004, will have no positive impact. Of the 217 people murdered in Baltimore last year, none were killed by "assault weapons" or guns with "high-capacity magazines," as those terms will be defined legislatively.

The condition of Ben McDonald's right elbow was the Orioles' main concern coming into last night's game against Kansas City.Coming out of it, the Orioles might have considered icing Rafael Palmeiro's left elbow. At the rate he has been making curtain calls, he is bound to develop a sore arm tipping his cap.Backed by the power hitting of Palmeiro and Harold Baines, McDonald pitched into the seventh and earned the win as the Orioles completed a two-game sweep of the Royals, 4-2, in front of 44,778 human loudspeakers at Camden Yards.

For all the wondrous places television has taken us over the years, one of the few places it doesn't let us visit is within its own halls.Why? Who knows? Maybe the fear in letting us peek is that if viewers see just how and why things get done behind the camera, they'll come away looking at the business the same way Dorothy came to see the Wizard of Oz once the curtain flew open: a lot of smoke and flash, but no substance.The latest installment of HBO's now monthly "Real Sports" magazine, premiering Monday at 10: 30 p.m., with re-airs next Thursday at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., pulls open the curtain on one of the best television brawls going, the fight between Fox and ESPN for cable sports television supremacy.

WASHINGTON - A federal auto safety agency will propose new requirements today to give drivers and passengers more protection against devastating head injuries in side-impact crashes, government and industry officials said. The regulations would, in effect, require automakers to phase in side curtain air bags as standard equipment in new vehicles by mandating tougher crash tests and new injury limits for test dummies, industry and safety groups said. The new safety measures would save 700 to 1,000 lives a year when fully phased in, according to an analysis by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is proposing the changes.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I hope to enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Neal Coolong, a Steelers blogger for Behind the Steel Curtain . MV: The Steelers were expected to compete for the AFC North but started 0-4. Why have they struggled ? NC: The Steelers' issues aren't caused by old age, they're caused by youth.

When Bowie Community Theatre announced its 2013-2014 season, it promised a bold trio of plays that are largely undiscovered — a move that represented a departure from past seasons. The company's 47th season opened with a perplexing comedy dealing with adult themes, "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife," a show that easily qualifies as groundbreaking fare for Bowie. When Charles Busch's play premiered on Broadway in 2000, Ben Brantley, the famed New York Times critic, pronounced it "a nimble sitcom of a play that pushes at the edges of its form.

When Bay Theatre Company actors take their bows at the end of Arthur Miller's "The Price" on Sunday, they may be their last for a while. After more than a decade, the Annapolis company is suspending its operations while it looks for a long-term home. The final performance will be bittersweet for Janet Luby, the company's artistic director and co-founder. "We're doing so well, reputation-wise, but the money wasn't matching it," she said. The company has been on a month-to-month lease at its small space in the West Garrett Building at 275 West St., and has been unable to secure a long-term deal with the landlord, Luby said.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS and THE RECORD | December 23, 2012
Among the most memorable of newspaper editorials ever put to paper was published Sept. 21, 1897 in the New York Sun and is credited to Francis P. Church, characterized by the Newseum, a repository of the history of journalism, as a "veteran newsman. " Though published as summer was turning to fall, the subject was Christmas, as the editorial reply was to a letter from Virginia O'Hanlon, 8, who was curious as to the existence of Santa Claus. The Sun's editorial has often been republished and was even made into a movie.

NEW YORK -- Even before the curtain rises, it's obvious that Broadway audiences won't be seeing the same "Triumph of Love" enjoyed by Baltimore at Center Stage last year.For one thing, the curtain itself is an addition. It's hilariously huge, spilling onto the stage floor and threatening to spill into the laps of front-row patrons. Like the complex 18th-century Marivaux comedy upon which this musical is based, the curtain gives you a lot of material to contemplate.Moving uptown in more ways than just the transfer from Baltimore to the Big Apple, this glitzier "Triumph" is a comfortable fit in the Royale Theatre, whose plush red upholstery and gilded decor make the French comedy seem at home.
