The Western girls have started another streak. The fourth-ranked Doves won 18 consecutive Baltimore City indoor track and field championships before losing two years ago. The Doves bounced back to win last year and captured a second consecutive title at this year's meet Wednesday night at the Fifth Regiment Armory.

The DOVE Ice Cream truck will stop in Baltimore on Aug. 17 and 18. Here's the great thing about the DOVE truck -- it's not for kids. That's right, kids can't get near the place. The "adults-only" DOVE ice-cream truck will invite adults only on board for a five-minute massage by a licensed massage therapist, a DOVE ice-cream bar and a free manicure. "Most of us have vivid memories of the ice cream truck," said Craig Hall, general manager of Mars Chocolate North America. "DOVE Ice Cream is all about enjoying the moment, so we created a one-of-a-kind ice cream truck to help adults relive their childhood, but in a truly decadent, grownup way. " Ralph Macchio helped kick off the DOVE Ice Cream truck's three-city tour in Chicago on July 28. The only other city on the tour, beside Baltimore, is Minneapolis.
