Baltimore's harbor earned a failing grade for water quality in the latest assessment of its ecological health, despite fewer reported sewage overflows last year. Though the harbor's overall grade for 2013, to be released Wednesday, is down from a C-minus the year before, the city's signature water body didn't actually get more polluted last year, according to organizers of the Healthy Harbor campaign. Instead, the harbor campaigners said they've just decided to stop grading on a curve and deliver a more straightforward assessment - that it's far from safe to swim or splash around in the trash- and sewage-fouled upper reaches of the Patapsco River.

When Santi White, aka Santigold, released her debut album in 2008, she earned comparisons to another forward-thinking sonic provocateur: M.I.A. Four years and a second album (last month's "Master of My Make-Believe") later, Santigold has eclipsed any similarities to ... well, anyone. Her blending of sounds - driving beats intersect with ska, reggae and punk touchstones, all delivered in a slick, danceable package - has made her brand of jittery pop wholly her own. Santigold, who performs Tuesday at Rams Head Live , spoke recently about beating trends, building a brand and her friendship with the late Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys.

City officials are reminding residents that repairs planned for the Jones Falls Expressway - and nightly closures of lanes associated with that project - will begin Monday. Overnight for the next 10 months, work to replace aging rubber bridge joints and damaged concrete barriers will close lanes intermittently along large stretches of the highway, officials said. The $5 million project will cause delays, and officials urge drivers to use alternate routes or plan added travel time.

Michael Winegrad of I. Michael Interior Design adde excitement to the mundane architecture of a standard development house in Pikesville with this half-round master bedroom addition.The addition, which satisfied his clients' craving for the unusual, dramatically alters the look of the house from the back. Rather than attempting to camouflage its shape by matching the materials with the rest of the house, the clients and designer opted to highlight the difference by selecting pale cedar siding as a statement of contrast.

James Benton of Southern said the emergence of a consistent curve has made him a more complete pitcher -- something Poly found out yesterday.Benton kept Poly off-balance most of the game with his curve, and the junior capped his two-hitter by retiring the final 11 batters to lift Southern to a 5-0 victory over the host Engineers.Poly (4-3) struggled with Benton, a junior, the entire game. The pitcher from Southern (5-3) faced only two batters over the minimum and had little trouble with the Engineers, throwing a total of 77 pitches.

IT'S BEEN NEARLY TWO years since your wheelster highlighted the woes of a tres dangerous curve on Bellona Avenue just off North Charles Street where most drivers make the steep descent into the belly of Ruxton.Here is a two-lane road that holds a pair of sharp curves that make driving a white-knuckle experience. When it rains, that experience takes on religious proportions as vehicles begin to slip and slide everywhere.In early 1997, Intrepid interviewed Kate Chittenden, a neighbor of this danger zone, who warned the curve is a magnet for accidents -- and State Highway Administration statistics showing 22 reported wrecks there since 1995 back her up.Recently, though, fate caught up with Kate.

Talk about a no-brainer. You want to build a house with a curved wall. The traditional way involves cutting wood into little pieces, forming the pieces into a curve, and then bending a sheet of drywall around them. Complicated, eh? Structurally sound? Not really. What about taking U-shaped pieces of sheet metal to make the curve - one at the top, another at the bottom, and then fitting wood or metal studs into the channels? That's what Flex-C Trac framing is all about. The product, invented by Frank Wheeler of Flex-Ability Concepts in Edmond, Okla.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Orioles pitcher Scott Kamieniecki is giving hitters something else to think about this spring: his curveball.At this point last year, Kamieniecki was keeping the pitch under wraps, not wanting to put too much strain on a right elbow fresh off surgery. He used the curve sparingly in the first half of the season, relying mostly on his fastball and change, but still managed to tie his career high with 10 victories and earn a two-year, $6.2 million contract to go with assurances that he would remain the club's fourth starter.

I read your editorial about the safety of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and found it laughable ( "Risking the bridge," July 24). First, you can not politicize physics, whose laws are immutable. In the effort to get better fuel economy auto manufacturers have been making lighter cars. And trucking companies have been putting longer, heavier rigs on the road than when the bridge was built. What does all this mean? A long heavy truck hitting a light car will impart a great deal of energy to the car. The Jersey walls are curved from bottom to top, so when hit by vehicle's wheel, the curve carries the whole vehicle upward along the curve.

BOWIE -- Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman has hit some rough patches through the first few weeks of his first full professional season while pitching at Double-A Bowie, but the 22-year-old right-hander's steady development continues to be more important than any pitching line. Gausman, who is ranked the No. 2 prospect in the Orioles' organization and No. 26 in all of baseball by Baseball America, will enter his fifth start of the season on Sunday against Harrisburg with a 1-2 record and a 4.74 ERA and has allowed four or more earned runs in two of his four starts.

One might assume that even the most discriminating big sedan buyer could find satisfaction from one of the nine versions of BMW's flagship 7-series. One would be incorrect. For that ultra-discerning person, there's the BMW Alpina B7: more power, more athletic handling, more exterior styling, more cabin cosseting and, with only 2,000 produced per year, more exclusivity.  Alpina, a limited vehicle production company in its own right, has been partnering with BMW for 40 years to make already exceptional vehicles even better.

It's a matter no one gives a, well let's say hoot, about until there's a problem. When there is a problem with it, everyone affected will be angry enough to call city hall and give the poor soul who answers a blast of, let's just call it hot air. The matter at hand is sewage disposal and treatment, and it appears Aberdeen is at the forefront of making sure no one gets any stink on them from being cavalier about modernization. The city council voted last week to spend up to $96,000 on equipment that will make possible sewer line replacement using a technique called pipe-bursting.

If you witnessed the thunderstorms that hit the area Friday, June 29, you might have thought that they seemed more intense than normal. What was soon evident was this was no average thunderstorm. High winds peaked at 70 mph, downing limbs and uprooting trees. This storm ripped a swath of damage across multiple states and left millions without power, including 564,000 BGE customers in eight counties and Baltimore City. The "derecho" storm, as it has been categorized, left no time for usual preparation.

NEW YORK -- The Major League Baseball Players Association has decided to strike sooner rather than later, setting Aug. 12 as the deadline for a work stoppage that could wipe out the last 52 days of the season and baseball's newly expanded postseason tournament.Union director Donald Fehr made the announcement late yesterday afternoon at the Intercontinental Hotel, where union and management negotiators had concluded a contentious meeting Wednesday without making progress toward a new labor agreement.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Rather than sit around his house and watch television footage of pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, Steve Trachsel decided to start making some weekend plans that didn't include baseball. He told this story yesterday during a conference call before boarding a late flight for Fort Lauderdale, where he'll begin playing baseball. Funny how this game shoves a man aside and then pulls him back. Ignored much of the winter, Trachsel drew quick interest from the Orioles on Monday after they learned Kris Benson likely would miss the entire season because of a partially torn rotator cuff.

To Phoenix-area residents, it's simply "dead man's curve" - a twisting section of Jarrettsville Pike that lies at the bottom of a steep hill near a meandering stream, where mature trees block the line of sight in both directions. Four yellow signs warn of dangers: the sharp curve, the steep grade, crossing deer and an upcoming school bus stop. But drivers often ignore the signs and speed down the hill, say those who live and work in the area. "If it was on flat ground, it wouldn't be an issue, but because of that hill, people have some speed and they just don't know what's coming," said Bob Thompson, who co-owns Lothorian Pools at the bottom of the hill, just beyond the curve.
