Corey Johnson, who coached Patterson for six years, will be named to replace Dante Jones as Edmondson's football coach Monday. Johnson confirmed Saturday that he will take over a Red Storm program that has been one of Baltimore City's most competitive football teams under Jones, who is moving on to coach in Delaware. “I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to get back to a school that has a winning tradition, following Dante Jones and Pete Pompey,” Johnson said. “There's great support for the team and when you have a winning tradition, you seem to get the kids all the time, so this is a great opportunity to carry on that tradition.” Jones, who said Saturday that he was on vacation and would talk later about his departure from Edmondson, is taking over the football program at Dover High School.

Megan's sun-bronzed stomach and bikini bottom versus Dante's “The Inferno.” Guess which one Don Draper is locked in on at the opening of Sunday night's “Mad Men” on AMC. If you guessed the midsection of the divine Mrs. Draper, you would be wrong, because Season 6 of this even more divine drama opens with the return of the guy I think of as Existential Don. That's the dangerous and lost Don Draper - the guy who haunts late-night bars...

Joseph Gallagher has been reading "The Divine Comedy" for about 25 years now; most Baltimoreans have given Dante less of their time, or none. But book readers know uneasily that they owe him a try sometime, this medieval exiled Florentine who ranks with Homer and Shakespeare.Dante, building his 100-canto "cathedral of words" to heighten interest in the afterlife, assigned himself the role of visitor, over Easter weekend, 1300; and, as his tour guides, selected Virgil (Hell, Purgatory) and Beatrice, an idealized sweetheart (Paradise)

"The Divine Comedy," the allegorical poem completed by the great Florentine, Dante Alighieri, shortly before his death in 1321, knocked the socks off his late medieval, early Renaissance readers.This classic detailing the author's descent through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise with the ancient Roman poet Virgil at his side continues to inspire and challenge us.Writers like Coleridge, Longfellow and T. S. Eliot have extolled its virtues. The surrealist painter Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was so taken with the poem that he painted some 102 watercolors in 1952, each one illustrating an event of Dante's hair-raising journey.

A Baltimore man serving a 60-year murder sentence now faces life without parole in an unrelated homicide in Glen Burnie, after he was convicted Monday of the first-degree murder of Dr. Albert Woonho Ro. Dante Jeter, 25, is scheduled to be sentenced July 24 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court for his role in the fatal beating, stabbing and robbery on Sept. 26, 2006, of Ro, 51, a dentist well-known in the area's Korean-American community.

The man who nearly 30 years ago prosecuted Mark Farley Grant for murder in Baltimore says he never would have brought the case had he known then what he knows today - that a key state's witness had testified only after being threatened at gunpoint by relatives of the original suspect. Phillip G. Dantes, who served as an assistant city state's attorney in the 1980s, says that, in light of information he now has, he would have prosecuted the original suspect, Mark "Shane" White, who is now deceased, instead of Mr. Grant.

Dante Liberatore works a room in a way that few restaurateurs care to, or dare to, these days. We saw him compel a sour patron to concede that her wait for a table had been exactly as long as he said it would be. She wasn't thrilled, but her husband was. Later we heard him tell a diner at a nearby table that if she still didn't like a pasta dish the kitchen remade for her, he would eat it himself. She didn't like it, and he ate it. That's part of the fun at Liberatore's of Eldersburg.

About the year 1300 A.D., the Italian poet Dante Alighieri went through one heck of a midlife crisis. Unrequited love, venomous political rivals, suicidal despair - Dante grappled with, and chronicled, it all in The Inferno. It was a vision of hell so graphic and detailed that, seven centuries later, it continues to grip artists' imaginations. If you go A Comic Strip will be performed at 8 tonight and 7 p.m. tomorrow at Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. Tickets cost $16 general admission; $11 for seniors and students.

A 20-year-old Reisterstown man with no previous criminal record was sentenced yesterday to 100 years in prison for the killings of a teenager and his uncle in what authorities described as a botched attempt to steal drugs and money from the victims' apartment. Karl Maurice "Six" Sowers had interrupted his trial in March, deciding on the third day of testimony to enter a guilty plea to first-degree murder. In exchange, prosecutors withdrew the notice of their intention to seek a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
