From Rep. Elijah E. Cummings playing a leading role in televised hearings on American deaths in Benghazi, to the Game Show Network visiting a Baltimore church to play matchmaker for a member of the congregation, there is going to be a distinct local flavor to summertime TV this year. Here are 10 shows, stories and trends to look for in and on Baltimore television in coming weeks - for better or worse. “It Takes a Church” debuts at 9 p.m. Thursday on GSN. The reality-TV series hosted by gospel singer Natalie Grant visits a different church each week and, with the help of the pastor and congregation members, plays the dating game.

As I watched Tuesday while the anchors on “Fox & Friends” leveled unsubstantiated charges against Rep. Elijah Cummings as if they were facts, I couldn't help thinking how much more dangerous Sen. Joe McCarthy might have been in the 1950s if there had been a show like this to amplify his reckless allegations. The Fox News morning show was playing one of cable talk's dirtier games, and the longtime Democratic congressman from Baltimore was its target for his role in the House IRS probe.

Lovejoy, abolitionist editor of The Observer, died in Alton, Illinois.They say I was the War's first casualty:shot, not once, but five times by a mobengorged, enraged by blood of slavery.Three times they came with pistols, torches, robbedme, hauled my press to the Mississippi, threwit in. I bought another, vowed to spreadthe rank stench of slavery until they grewsick of sin and purged their souls. The threadof the Union unravels with every lashof the whip, every wail on the auction block.

A successful performance of Felix Mendelssohn's oratorio Elijah requires two non-negotiable commodities. First, a powerful yet sensitive baritone soloist must be on hand so the great Old Testament prophet can chastise idol worshipers, resurrect children from the dead and resign himself to God's word with majestic tone and laser-like attention to dramatic detail. Next, a large, sonorous chorus must be well-schooled in the dramatic contours of the work to bring out the evocative changes of vocal character that Mendelssohn tucked into every nook and cranny of his score.

Louis Farrakhan would be the first to admit that he is no Elijah Muhammad. There is no better illustration of that than the way Minister Farrakhan handled the Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad.Khalid Muhammad's speech at Kean College in New Jersey last November 29 is infamous by now. It was a classic Jew-bashing, ofay-bashing tirade common to the black nationalist mode of thought. Khalid Muhammad characterized Jews as ''the bloodsuckers of the black nation''; labeled the pope a ''no-good cracker'' who needed to have his ''dress'' lifted up to ''see what's really under there''; and, from the relative safety of New Jersey, urged South African blacks to kill all the whites in South Africa.

Fox News has a new punching bag this week: Baltimore Congressman Elijah Cummings. Monday night, he and other Democratic members of the House Committee investigating the IRS over allegations that it targeted conservative groups took a pounding on Megyn Kelly's show over recently released emails. Tuesday morning, the beatdown intensified on "Fox & Friends," which kept flashing headlines like: "Where's the Outrage? Media ignores Cummings role in IRS scandal. " "There's explosive new evidence," host Elizabeth Hasselbeck said, introducing a discussion of Cummings, "that he was leading the charge against conservatives the entire time" that he was part of a panel that was supposed to be investigating the IRS for allegedly treating conservative groups unfairly.  Cummings role on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is ranking minority member.

When senior point guard Elijah Kess was a sophomore reserve and Lake Clifton was getting ready to play in the state title game, Lakers' coach Herman "Tree" Harried pulled him aside. "You're a tenth grader and about to win a state title," the player said he was told. Kess says it was the best day of his life - the Lakers indeed brought home a state crown - and now he's striving to one-up it. In his second year as a starter and team captain, he knows it's his turn to lead the Lakers to another championship.

Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings will be among 26 congressmen traveling to South Africa to attend memorial services for revered leader Nelson Mandela Tuesday in FNB Stadium, known as Soccer City in Soweto. It was at that stadium in July 2010 that Mandela made his last public appearance at the World Cup final. Mandela, who died Thursday evening at the age of 95, will be buried Dec. 15 in his hometown of Qunu, following a traditional 10 days of mourning. It was there that the first black president of the divided country spent his childhood years.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Baltimore, now the senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has emerged as the leader and spokesman against what President Barack Obama calls "phony scandals. " The committee's chairman, Republican Darrell Issa of California, has spearheaded the investigations into most of the scandals. In 2011, Mr. Issa revealed a list of important issues that he would focus on, including: WikiLeaks, the role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the foreclosure crisis, corruption in Afghanistan, Food and Drug Administration recalls, and the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission's failure to pinpoint the cause of the financial meltdown.

Staffers at Rep. Elijah Cummings' Baltimore office arrived Wednesday to find gobs of putty and wiring on the door, raising fears of an explosive attack and drawing emergency crews from around the region. Though the suspicious objects turned out to be harmless, they alarmed many around the Park Avenue office of the Baltimore Democrat and spawned a criminal inquiry by the FBI. Cummings said he and his colleagues have come to expect more threats over the past few years as political discourse has grown more charged.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Baltimore lawmaker and top-ranking Democrat on the often contentious committee have never enjoyed a particularly strong relationship. And so tensions were already high when Issa, a California Republican, referred to Cummings on Thursday as "a little boy with his hand caught in the cookie jar" during a hearing that quickly captured national attention and prompted Issa to clarify his remarks a few hours later.

Last night Elijah, Cortez, Charlie, Nick, Burnell, Paul, Lazaro, Curtis, Devin and Vincent battled it out for a spot in this year's top 10. Well, some battled and some just blah.  The show kicked off with Elijah, singing Rhianna's new hit, "Stay" -- I am certain every little teenaged girl watching last night stayed glued to the TV. It was perfection. The judges loved him and so did the audience. I'm thinking Elijah will stay. Cortez wasn't as lucky. For some reason he took on Bruno Mars and perhaps singing "Locked Out of Heaven" got him locked out of the top 10. Nicki told poor Cortez that he needs to borrow Elijah's stylist and Randy said his dance moves were dope, but he didn't dance?

Elijah and Hannah are breaking up. She is kicking him out for his transgression with Marnie and it has gotten really ugly really quickly. "Here's your round brush, here's your Astroglide. Don't even know how that ended up in my room," announces Hannah, looking for all the world like Divine in "Hairspray" in her Granny muumuu. Elijah announces he will not be paying this month's rent, but Hannah is coming out the winner as George (Elijah's ex-Sugar Daddy) has told her she can keep all of Elijah's belongings that he paid for which is ... everything.
