Reaching down into the ranks, Baltimore's police commissioner promoted five commanders to the upper echelon of the department yesterday with orders to oversee such key operations as recruitment, training and emergency dispatching.The move was the first in a series of expected transfers in the department's command structure. It effectively created a cadre of hand-picked officers to carry out Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier's reforms in the department."There has been a need to add some administrative muscle to the higher levels, and these officers I'm promoting are going to give us that," Mr. Frazier said.

NEW ORLEANS - Twelve years ago, Steve Bisciotti arrived for Super Bowl XXXV as a minority owner of the Ravens, content to remain in the background and have fun with his friends. Bisciotti, his wife, Renee, and his assistant, Pam Lund, arranged for 250 family members to travel to Tampa, Fla., for the game. He rented a corporate tent and hired a band for pregame entertainment, and then he watched the game from a suite at Raymond James Stadium. After the Ravens beat the New York Giants, 34-7, to capture the franchise's lone title, Bisciotti was on the field to watch the trophy presentation and then he took his sons inside the victorious locker room.

CLEVELAND - As the Ravens sat in the locker room whooping it up because they tossed a second straight shutout win, 12-0, over the Cleveland Browns yesterday, linebackers Ray Lewis and Cornell Brown boldly said the Ravens were one of the best teams in the league. Maybe they collided and hit helmets trying to tackle Browns running back Travis Prentice, causing their brains not to receive enough oxygen. Or maybe they were so overcome about comparisons with the 1985 Chicago Bears defense that emotions short-circuited their thought process.

University of Notre Dame coach Kevin Corrigan doesn't reflect much on his 23 years at the school, but there are some things he can't forget. Upon arrival, Notre Dame had no paid assistants and scholarships. The Fighting Irish didn't have any lacrosse facilities, and shared a locker room with four other teams. But now, they are close to becoming an elite team. In the latest Baltimore Sun poll, the Fighting Irish are ranked No. 4 behind Syracuse, Virginia and Maryland. And they are closing.

Baltimore architects and planners avoided more than a few design blunders in 1995. They didn't turn the waterfront over to casino interests. They didn't convert the vacant Pier 4 Power Plant, which has the potential to be a terrific public attraction, to a private office building for Alex. Brown & Sons Inc. They didn't put a visitors' center on a pier in the middle of the Inner Harbor, where few could reach it.But successful urban planning requires more than averting mistakes. Cities on the move these days are taking steps to create environments in which good things will happen, not just places in which bad things won't happen.

PARIS - A French prosecutor has begun a preliminary investigation into whether the U.S. global surveillance system, which listens in on millions of telephone calls, faxes and electronic messages each day, is a threat to French well-being. The prosecutor, Jean-Pierre Dintilhac, has ordered France's counterintelligence agency, DST, to appraise the actions of the system, Echelon. The system links computers in at least seven sites around the world to receive, analyze and sort information captured from satellite communications.

The Rouse Co. said yesterday that it has reached an agreement to sell six of its Philadelphia-area shopping malls and acquire a large stake in Christiana Mall in Newark, Del., a move that allows the Columbia-based company to shed a mixed bag of properties and gain control of one of the nation's top-producing centers. The deal with Philadelphia-based Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust is valued at $548 million in cash, debt and securities. "They approached us in the middle of last year," said Robert Minutoli, a Rouse senior vice president who put the deal together.

THE ELDERLY couple was battered to death, not on a street corner or in a dark alley, but in their own Guilford home, where one should expect safety and comfort.Neighbors were understandably upset and concerned for their own safety. At first. But after the arrest of the couple's grandson, an elderly resident of the beautiful, old neighborhood was interviewed by a television station. Her response raised the hairs on my arms -- "of course, it's a terrible thing," she said, "but at least we know it was a family member, and not someone . . . you know . . . stalking the neighborhood."

As the clock wound down in the 1993 National Football Conference championship game and the Dallas Cowboys were assured of advancing to their second consecutive Super Bowl, San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. and president Carmen Policy looked at one another as they sat forlornly in the owners' box at Texas Stadium.Not a word was spoken. Both men knew what had to be done."It wasn't even necessary to articulate the fact that everyone knew that if we wanted to compete at a higher echelon -- let alone the NFC championship game -- that we had to get better as a team," Policy said.

Maryland learned Sunday that it will play in the Military Bowl at Washington's RFK Stadium — an outcome that seemed to puzzle and disappoint a school that believed it had earned the right to travel to a higher-level bowl game far from campus. The Terps (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be matched on Dec. 29 at 2:30 p.m. against East Carolina (6-6), which finished in a tie for fourth place in Conference USA. Maryland did not want to be disrespectful to the Military Bowl, which is in its third year — it was formerly called the EagleBank Bowl — and benefits the USO. But it was no secret that the Terrapins hoped and expected to be invited to an upper-echelon bowl game.

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen said Sunday that the Terps deserve a bid to an "upper-echelon" bowl game befitting a team that tied with two other schools for the third-best record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Maryland's 38-31 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday pushed its record to 8-4 (5-3 ACC) — a mark that Friedgen said entitles the Terps to one of the top bowls affiliated with the ACC. Bowl games are not required to pick teams based on final record alone, making their selections difficult to forecast.

It's quite a short list of Johns Hopkins basketball players who have gone on to coach at Division I college basketball schools in the past 25 years. It's such a small list, in fact, that Florida State assistant coach Andy Enfield -- a prodigious college shooter who is the only player to score more than 2,000 career points at Hopkins -- commands half of the list all by himself. Mike Blaine, a UMES assistant, is the other occupant. "Not a lot of guys that played there went into coaching," said Enfield, who helped lead the Seminoles to 25 wins last season, tied for second-most in school history, and 22 this season.

WASHINGTON -- After an electoral shellacking widely seen as a message for change in Washington, House Republicans decided yesterday to stick with much the same leadership team as they adjust to becoming the chamber's minority. The GOP lawmakers elected Reps. John A. Boehner of Ohio as minority leader and Roy Blunt of Missouri as minority whip, rejecting challenges to each by conservatives. The challengers offered themselves as better able to recommit the party to fiscal discipline, arguing the GOP had strayed from that tenet during the party's 12-year control of the House.

Ravenstown has never been more down than it was at the end of last season. There was genuine disgust for the first time since the team's arrival from Cleveland. Among the many factors that combined to generate disappointment, none was more important than the overheated expectations for the team that prevailed as the season began. Many observers had the Ravens making the playoffs and possibly going far. Coach Brian Billick had said it was his most talented team, quite a statement considering his 2000 squad won the Super Bowl.

When asked about watching film, Terrell Suggs didn't deliver the expected answer, providing a spin he usually reserves for offensive lines. Instead of following the routine of breaking down opposing tackles, the Ravens' outside linebacker spends his free time analyzing fellow pass rushers like Tampa Bay's Simeon Rice, the New York Jets' John Abraham and Green Bay's Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. So, does he ever dissect tackles, even during a week in which he will face nine-time Pro Bowl lineman Willie Roaf?
