The ongoing controversy surrounding the death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has inspired rappers from all over the country to vent their frustrations on wax. First came Oakland's Mistah F.A.B.'s "God Don't Love Me (R.I.P. Trayvon Martin)," and then Plies, the street rapper from Florida, released "We Are Trayvon. " You can now add Baltimore to the list, too. This past Sunday, Los , the local rapper recently signed (again) to Diddy's Bad Boy Records, released "Wit My Hoodie On," a song that uses Martin-specific references as starting points for Los' personal reflections on losing his father, how the public views young black men and more.

Recent executive orders from the White House have rekindled a decades-long debate about gender pay disparities that persist in corporate America. Some blame the gap on lingering workplace biases that protect the "C suite" senior executives as the domain of men. Others dismiss the problem as overstated, citing the choices that women often make to sacrifice career advancement in favor of family. A new study, which I co-authored with Geoffrey Tate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, debunks the argument that gender pay differences largely reflect the unequal career choices of men and women.

It's not often that being called "a pain in the butt" is a good thing. But Bob Bradshaw grinned as politicians recalled his years of polite β€” yet relentless advocacy for Davidsonville Park. Bradshaw has long been praised as a driving force behind the creation and design of the park, which opened in 2005 on the site of a former sand and gravel mine. To recognize that work, Anne Arundel County named the park's main road "Bob Bradshaw Way" last week. "It's only a street sign, but every time I drive by, I will remember fondly the work Bob did," said state Sen. Ed Reilly, who worked with Bradshaw on the park when Reilly was a member of the County Council.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds compared the past few days of spring training workouts to Groundhog Day. Friday's first intrasquad game gave Orioles like Reynolds the opportunity to finally similate a gameday competition. "It was good to go play and put on your uniform, (to) face live pitching and be put in a game situation,” Reynolds said. β€œIt feels like baseball is finally back.” In Friday's intrasquad, Reynolds, who made 26 errors in 114 games at third base last season, made a pair of nice plays at third base.

Design plans included adding a kitchen and bathrooms and making the room handicapped accessible. Floors and lighting have been upgraded; the room has been painted; and high-energy-efficient windows were installed when other windows were replaced in the rest of the Police Department building.

HANUKKAH IS a holiday that celebrates dedication - the re-dedication of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem, after the Maccabees defeated the Syrian-Greeks more than 2,100 years ago, and dedication to the Jewish faith - according to Rabbi Mark Panoff of Temple Isaiah. The Jewish congregation meets at Oakland Mills Interfaith Center. That's why Hanukkah was chosen as the occasion to dedicate the synagogue's new Israeli flag Sunday. The flag was donated in honor of Phyllis Geisler of Oakland Mills, a beloved member of the congregation who died last winter.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler is proposing to eliminate the state prosecutor's office, the independent agency that secured a string of high-profile political convictions in recent years. Gansler, a Democrat running for governor, called the office "a holdover from the Watergate era" that overlaps with other law enforcement offices and said scrapping it would save taxpayers as much as $1.2 million a year. But others called the proposal cause for concern, saying the agency's independence puts it in a unique position to prosecute government or electoral wrong-doing.

Maria Trent lived in the Columbia neighborhood of Running Brook during the early 1970s while her dad worked on a doctorate at the University of Maryland, College Park, and her mom taught at Waterloo Elementary.

Even though the Orioles have made plans to honor late public relations director Monica Barlow as part of a pregame ceremony on Opening Day, players would like to have another way to remember Barlow on the field throughout the season. That's not the easiest thing to do, because Major League Baseball has strict uniform regulations that prevent players from making alterations to uniforms on their own. The Orioles will honor Barlow - as well as team investor and Baltimore-born novelist Tom Clancy, former Gold Glove outfielder Paul Blair and 10 other members of the Orioles family who passed away since last Opening Day - during a pregame video tribute Monday before the Orioles play their season opener against the Boston Red Sox. Barlow died Feb. 28 after a nearly four-and-a-half - year battle with lung cancer at age 36. But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis said this past week that Barlow meant so much to them as players that they have discussed ways to carry her memory onto the field with them during every game.

At Annapolis High School, student dancers and actors rehearse in an airy, two-story studio. Visual arts students fire their ceramic creations in a trio of kilns. Graphics students work in a lab filled with new computers with wide, flat-screen monitors. Film and production students fine-tune their creations on a mixing board worthy of a professional recording studio. For a few months now, students at Annapolis High - both those in a performing and visual arts magnet program and other students - have been exploring their creative talents in the school's new two-story addition.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 13, 2014
The effectiveness of the volunteer firefighters who responded earlier this week to the scene of a car fire at a commercial garage in Joppa is exemplary of why it is important for Harford County to try to figure out a way to resolve the funding issues related to providing ambulance service. It was bad enough that the fire was the result of an automotive gasoline tank that was, according to fire investigators, set ablaze by someone drilling into or near the tank. Putting out a gasoline fire is no easy task and, not only is gasoline flammable like kerosene and plenty of other petroleum products, but it is also potentially explosive.

Anne Arundel County Councilman Jamie Benoit this week proposed a way to drum up money to build a new high school in the county - a school that has been supported by parents in the Crofton area. Benoit wants to tap an obscure provision in the county's charter to create a dedicated fund to hold money for building a high school and repairing aging schools. He said the plan calls for diverting a portion of income tax the county receives into the fund. He said if he's successful in passing a bill to create the fund and funnel the money, he would follow up with a tax increase during budget negotiations in May to compensate the county's general fund for the money diverted to schools.

Retired teacher Judy Koenick was so moved by the moment that she drove uninvited from Chevy Chase just to blow a ram's horn: four abrupt, shrill sounds that stole, momentarily, the crowd's attention. To Koenick, whose father used to sound the horn, or shofar, at synagogue, the loud bursts symbolized the biblical story of Joshua and the crumbled walls of Jericho, of how an army of desert nomads supported only by faith triumphed against overwhelming odds. Yesterday, the dedication of the $8 million Commodore Uriah P. Levy Center and Jewish Chapel was an event just as momentous, she said.

Its hard to believe the short sightedness of the Oriole management in awarding such a paltry salary to Manny Machado, third baseman extraordinaire, winner of a platinum glove award, not to mention playing his heart out for his team and fans during the 2013 season ( "The price is light," March 11). If this is the way you reward dedication, it will serve you right if he walks to another team with next year's negotiations!

As Paul Dickover stood at the pulpit of Trinity Episcopal Church on Sunday and told the hundreds in attendance of the work involved in the Assistance Center of Towson Churches renovation this summer, he told of a project that grew to nearly twice its original scale. But for Dickover, the contractor, and the leaders of the ACTC, the downtown Towson food pantry, which serves those in need in central Baltimore County, they knew a little bit of faith would take their project a long way. "If you tried to think too far ahead, the whole idea would have been daunting," Cathy Burgess, executive director of the ACTC, said.
