Despite what numerous drivers running errands on Saturday afternoon seemed to believe, a handicapped parking permit is not a family pass for choice parking. At the Glen Burnie Wal-Mart, Cpl. Eric Trumbauer snagged two such drivers at once. One woman, teary-eyed and apologetic, said she used her husband's handicapped placard because she was only running in to get dog food. The other, 31-year-old Trina Mendez, was less remorseful. "There's nowhere to [expletive] park," Mendez said, her painted toenails resting in the window as Trumbauer wrote a $140 citation.

The bubble dome over the skating rink at Patterson Park collapsed during the 1996 snowstorm, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, and officials aren't taking any chances this time around. Anywhere from four to 20 employees have been working around the clock to keep snow from accumulating on the heavy vinyl bubble that covers the structure of the Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro Family Ice Skating Center, said Bob Wall of the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. The Baltimore Fire Department used a hose Tuesday night to spray the bubble, from the outside and from the inside, to break the snow and ice into smaller pieces so it would slide off easier, he said.

They don't make 'em like Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro anymore. As society and government evolved through New Deals and New Frontiers and Great Societies, the personal touch in urban politics was superseded by more structured systems for serving citizens. By and large the old-fashioned ward politician is an anachronism, sometimes replaced by bland imitations who practice old-style politics in buttoned-down shirts. The death Friday of the long-time former Baltimore city councilman symbolizes the passing of an era.Mimi DiPietro's rotund figure was a familiar one around City Hall long before he joined the council from East Baltimore.

She was 69."My husband tells everyone I'm the boss. Yeah, I'm the boss. He's 85 percent, and I'm 15 percent," she was fond of saying of her husband, Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro, the former 1st District city councilman who died in August at 89.The Rev.

J oe DiPietro's and Jimmy Roberts' "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change," now playing at Toby's Dinner Theatre of Columbia, deals with universal questions about searching for and finding love, only to discover flaws in our ideal mate that we need to change fast. This light look at relationships, from first date to modern courtship to marriage and beyond, is told in a series of 18 unrelated vignettes. These largely independent segments are tied together by Roberts' music and DiPietro's lyrics.

The woman whose townhouse was firebombed June 3 in retaliation for the homicide of a Crofton teenager said Thursday that the family has been so traumatized by the blaze that even after they moved, they feel uneasy and their younger child wakes up at night terrified of every sound. "They took from us the most important thing, our peace of mind," Slavica Mahmutagic told Anne Arundel County Juvenile Court Master John F. Gunning during a hearing Thursday in which the 16-year-old driver of the car involved - the only one in the vehicle who knew where in Odenton the family lived - was placed on probation for first-degree arson.

A 16-year-old boy admitted Wednesday that he took part in the firebombing of a Piney Orchard townhouse that was intended as retaliation for the recent homicide of a Crofton teenager. In the equivalent of a guilty plea, he admitted in Juvenile Court his involvement in conspiracy to commit arson. The deal requires him to testify against three others, two juveniles and 22-year-old Jonathan R. Myers, also accused in the June 3 crime that charred the front of the home but did not injure anyone.

All her life, Lee DiPietro has been running marathons. On Sunday, at age 50, she finally won one. By a landslide. "It has taken me 23 years," DiPietro, of Ruxton, said of her victory in the Marathon of the Palm Beaches (Fla.). "The first thing my husband said was, 'Did you have to wait so long to do it?' " Her response: "Trust me, it's not been for lack of trying." DiPietro's time (2 hours, 55 minutes, 41 seconds) was two minutes ahead of the pack. The win earned her $1,000 cash and a $2,500 wristwatch, and it quelled any thoughts she had of quitting the sport she took up in 1985, after the birth of her second child.

It's a coach's sworn duty to worry about all manner of things, and Dulaney High volleyball coach Cary Lyon is fulfilling his responsibilities to the hilt, short and long term. Before Wednesday's home match with Woodlawn, Lyon roamed all over the gym, from the storage area to the court, searching for the two game balls to be used that afternoon. With that mission accomplished, Lyon turned his attention to the bigger issue for the Lions - namely, coming up with a set lineup for the season.

They don't make them like Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro any more. At 86, when most of his contemporaries are safely in retirement, he is running for re-election for the City Council seat he first occupied in 1966. But years have taken their toll. After the spring's controversial addition of South Baltimore and the Belair and Harford Road corridors to the First District, there is no certainty about the outcome on election day. Can Mr. DiPietro, who finished third in 1987, again win nomination?This uncertainty is spawning an unusually tight contest in the Sept.

Nothing enhances your reputation like dying. Politicians become statesmen. The crude become colorful. And Mimi DiPietro becomes a legend.Given to both anti-Semitic and racist comments in life, DiPietro is now hailed as a saint in death.DiPietro, a former Baltimore city councilman, died Friday night, and I understand the impulse to speak no ill of the dead. I also understand why this paper has been filled with colorful and complimentary anecdotes about him.But when this is done to the exclusion of all other information, readers are locked out of the whole truth and cannot draw their own conclusions.

An Annapolis teenager will have to serve at least five years and perhaps up to 25 under his plea yesterday to two fatal shootings, both avenging perceived offenses against people he barely knew. Rondell Anthony Medley, who was 16 at the time of the crimes, which happened a month apart in 2005, entered a plea yesterday to second-degree murder and a handgun violation in one killing and a plea to manslaughter in the other. He did not admit guilt but accepted that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him. "What I am asking for is the court to impose a 30-year sentence but for him to serve 25 of it" for the Feb. 2, 2005, killing of Terrod Wallace, plus a 10-year suspended sentence for the Jan. 7, 2005, killing of Eddie Jenkins, and five years on probation, said Kim DiPietro, an Anne Arundel County assistant state's attorney.
