Hundreds of police officers, family and friends of Baltimore police officer Thomas R. Portz Jr. gathered Wednesday to remember the fallen officer's gregarious nature, fierce devotion to those close to him and even his athletic prowess in a somber church ceremony. Portz became the third city police officer to die in the past month and the first killed in the line of duty since 2007, when his vehicle crashed into the back of a firetruck last week. Frederick H. Bealefeld III, the Baltimore police commissioner and a close friend of Portz's, eulogized the 32-year-old husband and father, as did two of Portz's fellow policemen and friends, Sgt. Kurt Roepcke and Officer Ricky Livesay.

Edgar A. Poe, local author and poet of much renown, was laid to rest at Westminster Hall yesterday inside a simple redwood coffin, after a grand theatrical and oratorical send-off to usher him, as he once wrote, "into the region of shadows." Of course the true Poe remained buried beneath the monument on the northwest corner of the church grounds in Southwest Baltimore, near where his body was placed hastily in a family plot soon after his death on Oct. 7, 1849. But yesterday the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe's death was revived, so that the great poet could receive the eulogy that eluded him in the days following his demise.

I'm writing my mom's eulogy. Only she's not dead yet.I work on it in the shower, or while I drive to work. Line by line, it occurs to me and interrupts my other thoughts. It has begun to write itself.My mom is very much alive. But she is HIV-positive. She received infected blood during a transfusion 11 years ago, but she didn't find out the terrible truth until 1988. The Red Cross sent her a letter explaining that the donor of the blood she received had tried to give blood again. By that time, all blood was being screened for the immunodeficiency virus.

Is it possible to be a normal kid who just happens to be in show business? The answer is yes, at least for 13-year-old identical twins Curtis and Keith Garcia of Perry Hall. The eighth-graders recently came home from Los Angeles, where they spent six weeks shooting Eulogy, in which they star as the sons of Ray Romano of Everybody Loves Raymond fame. The film, which also stars Debra Winger, Rip Torn, Monica Potter and Hank Azaria (The Simpsons), is slated to hit theaters in October. The black comedy is about three generations of a dysfunctional family gathering for the funeral of a family patriarch.

Kennedy Jr."He had a legacy, and he learned to treasure it. He was part of a legend, and he learned to live with it," Sen. Edward M. Kennedy said in a eulogy before about 315 mourners ranging from President Clinton to Muhammad Ali. "He had amazing grace."

IT'S LATE August, Sammy Sosa is on the disabled list for the second time, and he may or may not be seen or heard from much the rest of the way. If that had been known back in February, when the Orioles traded for Sosa, a mob would have shown up at the warehouse with torches and pitchforks. Today, it's about 268th on the list of the Orioles' biggest worries and 397th on their list of biggest disappointments. And your average fan can't spare enough anger from all the other targets to spend on the continued, gradual disappearance of the franchise's marquee offseason acquisition.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- For some people, Bethlehem Steel ended when the blast furnaces on this city's South Side went cold in 1995. For others, it was the day the builder of the Golden Gate Bridge filed for bankruptcy in 2001, or when the company was sold in 2003. But for the 50 employees who spent most of their careers watching friends get laid off, that day came Friday, when they left Martin Tower for the last time. Mary Deutsch, a 38-year billing analyst, knows Bethlehem Steel hasn't signed her checks since 2003.

Ford. Wearing a dark suit and gray tie, Bush was joined by first lady Laura Bush and a small contingent of White House aides that included Chief of Staff Joshua B. Bolten and Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove. Shortly after 3 p.m., Bush and his wife walked into the rotunda, where Ford's body lay in state.

The caskets were a mirror image of each other, the brothers inside them dressed in black suits and fedoras and the floral arrangements atop them done in the Rastafarian colors of red, yellow, green. Outside the church, matching light-colored hearses idled side by side. Ralston "Roy" Holder and Everton "Cliffy" Holder, Jamaica natives and East Baltimore auto shop owners, were shot to death hours apart on the same day last week. Yesterday was their double funeral. The two ran the Eveready Towing & Repair shop in the 3300 block of E. Fayette St. They had a reputation for generosity, giving steep discounts to customers who were paying out of pocket and letting a homeless employee sleep at the shop for a time.

For almost half a century, an obscure street above Ellicott City hasplayed host every year to a rather gruesome gathering.Each winter, a band of gangly, red-headed creatures with a fancy for freshly killed animals swoops in and sets up housekeeping in the trees and on rooftops overlooking Sylvan Lane, a winding street that traces the rimof the Ellicott City gorge west of the Patapsco River.They are turkey vultures -- buzzards, to some. And for five months of the year this symbol of death, stuff of horror films and staple of Loony Toons helps greet the day for the dozen or so families who live along the charming, narrow road.

Last year, doctors gave Georgia Beyard three days to live. She gathered friends and family; she said tearful goodbyes; she got ready to go. Then she got better. "I felt like a complete fraud, a charlatan," she says. Beyard, now 76, recounts with characteristic wit and humor how she cheated death and this year published a book - 71 poems collected into Latter Day Parables and Other Revelations - which went on sale recently at the Book Rack in Timonium. "It was sheer idiocy" to publish a book, she says, laughing.
