Baltimore's notorious "dine and dasher," accused of repeatedly faking seizures to get out of paying restaurant tabs, got a hefty bill on Friday from a city judge: five years in prison. Andrew Palmer, 47, has been eating and drinking for free around town for years. He became known by police and paramedics for feigning medical emergencies when his checks were due, and restaurant owners began posting his picture on their walls. Police have locked him up and he has been convicted dozens of times, but the maximum penalty for the charge of theft under $100 carries a maximum penalty of a few weeks in jail, which he repeatedly received and served.

A Baltimore man nicknamed the "Dine and Dasher" for skipping out on dozens of restaurant tabs — sometimes by faking seizures — was convicted again Wednesday in District Court. Andrew Palmer, 44, was found guilty of skipping out on a $50 bill at the Kona Grill downtown on New Year's Day. Judge George M. Lipman sentenced Palmer to 90 days. According to the prosector, it was Palmer's 17th conviction on such a charge since 2007. Palmer has been held at Central Booking since his arrest; court records show he has another case pending in Baltimore County — for allegedly faking a seizure to get out of paying at Mo's Seafood on Eastern Avenue on New Year's Eve. Palmer was charged with theft under $100 for the Kona Grill incident.

"Staying on the green" is a big topic at Dasher Green Elementary School. But don't grab your clubs for a quick game of golf quite yet. "Staying on the green" simply means behaving yourself. The phrase is a motto of the Beary Good Club, a new school-wide behavior program at Dasher Green. Named for the school mascot - the bear - the program uses the colors of the traffic light to rank behavior. Green stands for good behavior, yellow, for an infraction of the rules and red means serious trouble.

As state educators are looking to require that beginning kindergartners be older to ensure they're prepared for the rigors of the classroom, Howard County officials are hoping to catch children younger and younger - for the same reason. Running Brook Elementary School in Columbia has initiated a new Parents as Teachers program, bringing teachers into homes to teach parents how to teach their infants and toddlers. The county will break ground on its third Head Start facility in a matter of weeks.

Plans to build a seven-classroom building for the federal Head Start program as an addition to a Columbia school ran into opposition from a small but determined group of Owen Brown parents last night. About 20 parents active at the combined Dasher Green Elementary/ Owen Brown Middle schools said they have no objection to the building as long as it's constructed someplace else. Their neighborhood school is crowded, they said, and putting 100 more children onto the property will only worsen that.

COLLEGE PARK - - The play wasn't designed for Chris Turner to run. But, with Maryland ahead of James Madison by eight points in the second quarter, the quarterback pump-faked and took off for the end zone. Turner's 3-yard score might have came on a busted play - he had no lane to throw - but coaches say they have encouraged the fifth-year player to run more often this season than last. While Turner won't lead the Terps in rushing, coaches want him to keep the defense guessing by presenting at least the threat of a scamper out of the pocket.

A 59-year-old organic farmer was sentenced yesterday to a year of unsupervised probation and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine for firing a shotgun in his Baltimore County home with a former employee in the next room. James J. Dasher, owner of a nonprofit farm in Worthington Valley that provides food for Maryland soup kitchens and homeless shelters, was convicted in March of reckless endangerment. A jury acquitted him of first-degree assault, a more serious charge that stemmed from the former employee's contention that Dasher twice fired the shotgun at him while accusing him of having an affair with his fiancee.

In the wake of what he says was the accidental firing of his shotgun, James J. Dasher tidied up the mess that had been made in his home. He told police he swept up shotgun pellets that had sprayed across the fireplace, officers testified yesterday. He tossed the casings of spent shotgun shells - although he later said he couldn't remember where. And he dumped a piece of plywood that had been hit by the blast into a trash pit on his sprawling organic farm in northern Baltimore County. "He was cleaning up," Officer Kyle Blackburn testified yesterday at Dasher's assault trial.

Told that he was about to receive a big gift to reward his "integrity," David L. Wonderlin peeked through the swinging doors of his former boss' kitchen and spotted something that he said stopped him in his tracks: Eighteen inches - maybe more - of the barrel of a shotgun. "I turned and ran, and there was a shot," the farmhand and carpenter testified yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court. He later added, "I was running for my life, as fast as I possibly could, and wishing I was in better shape."
