Angela Agnew brushed aside cigarette butts with her hand as she placed candles on the sidewalk, part of a memorial in front of her parents' Northwest Baltimore home Sunday afternoon. The litter might be unremarkable any other day, but lying right where Loressa "Ressy" Little and Leroy Agnew had tossed them every day from the porch, they served as yet another heartbreaking reminder of a couple gone too soon. Police said the two were gunned down inside their home in the 5200 block of Denmore Ave., in the Arlington neighborhood near Pimlico Racecourse, at about 1:27 a.m. Tuesday.

A city police instructor was sentenced Tuesday to two months in jail for shooting a trainee during exercises, an incident that left a man critically wounded and, in the words of a prosecutor, "brought dishonor onto the Baltimore Police Department. " William S. Kern was convicted of reckless endangerment in the Feb. 12 shooting at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills, a shuttered state facility for people with developmental disabilities. The 19-year veteran testified that he accidentally grabbed a live weapon instead of a training gun. Though it's rare for an officer to serve jail time for an on-duty incident, Baltimore County prosecutors said the case was unique because of the level of carelessness displayed by Kern.

With my uncanny sense of timing, I am coming down with some ague on my day off. So I am at home treating myself with sleep, hot tea, and whiskey, and thinking about forgoing the first two.  I also have a pot of chili simmering on the stove against Kathleen's return home from work at Trinity Church in Towson. It is just as well to be home, because the Death From the Sky arrived within the last hour.* I see on Twitter that some of you who endured the brutality of this storm in the middle section of the country are snow-wimp-shaming us Mid-Atlantic sorts, with some justification, but I should explain some things to you.  In four years at Michigan State and six at Syracuse, I understood that people can learn how to drive in snow, even very heavy snow.

As Baltimore school board officials search for a new city schools CEO, they might do well to note the big gains in student achievement at schools in the District of Columbia where educators have made a longer school day part of the reform effort. It's worked well enough in Washington that Baltimore might well benefit from emulating that city's success. More instructional time in the classroom appears to have helped D.C. children not only boost their performance on standardized tests but do so more rapidly than their peers at schools with traditional 7.5-hour schedules.

It's here -- the day Baltimore baseball fans have been awaiting since Game 5 of last year's AL Division Series loss to the Yankees. Riding the momentum of a series win in Tampa Bay, the Orioles will play their home opener this afternoon against the Twins here at Camden Yards. There's a special energy in the air today. Talking to players in the clubhouse the past few days, they've been eagerly awaiting this day as well. Regardless of expectations, it's always a special day for players as they run down the orange carpet for pregame introductions. But coming off last year's resurgence, they anticipate an energy today that will duplicate last year's postseason games at Camden Yards.
