Eugene "Skid" Dailey, a longtime employee of the city's Department of Transportation, died June 3 of pancreatic cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The Street resident was 60. The son of a police officer and a nurse, Mr. Dailey was born in Baltimore and raised in the city's Penn Lucy neighborhood. "The reason he was nicknamed 'Skid," was because when he was born he just skidded out," said his wife of 24 years, the former Michelle Joyce. He was a 1968 graduate of Archbishop Curley High School and earned a bachelor's degree in 1973 from the University of Baltimore.

The movie "Jaws" was released 39 years ago this month so by now we're certain it's more than safe to go back in the water. Or is it? Over the weekend, a fisherman off the coast of Cape May, N.J., had a semi-pleasant (no one died) encounter with a great white shark that came snooping near the man's 35-foot boat. The 16-foot shark hung around about 20 minutes, according to Steve Clark, the vessel's owner, and didn't leave without getting a taste of a bait bag filled with chum that was hanging from the boat.

Sixteen-year-old Emmanuel Miller, who was found to have participated in the group beating of a 76-year-old black fisherman last summer - a racially motivated crime, according to police - is to be sentenced next week in juvenile court. He was scheduled for disposition Monday, but the case was held over because an evaluation report was incomplete. Miller, who has a lengthy record of breaking and entering, could be sent to a secure out-of-state facility for rehabilitation. His attorney asked that Miller be allowed to stay home, however, under electronic monitoring.

Everyone hopes for their moment of fame, but for Capt. Norm Bartlett, a Chesapeake Bay fishing guide, celebrity has been an out-of-body experience. Bartlett's likeness appears in the 2012 collection of Topps trading cards, one of 33 non-baseball luminaries including Michael Phelps , Arnold Palmer and Roger Federer in an otherwise all-baseball lineup. The card shows Bartlett - red shirt, tan cap, amused look - staring straight at the camera. But beneath the picture is a last name not his own: Kreh.

It's just equal piles of boulders and sand right now, pieces of a puzzle. But by the time the water warms and the anglers return to Sandy Point State Park, the pieces will be in their proper places as part of a $548,000 fishing platform jutting into the Chesapeake Bay. The idea belonged to Severn angler Skip Zinck. The spark was supplied by Maryland Parks Superintendent Nita Settina. The financial juice came from the Waterway Improvement Fund, which consists of the five percent tax collected when a boat is titled in the state.

The last of three white men accused of attacking a black fisherman in 2009 was given an 85-year prison sentence Wednesday, with all but 10 years suspended. Zachary D. Watson, 19, averted a trial by pleading guilty to four charges — armed carjacking, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit assault and committing a hate crime — with the understanding that he would receive a limited term of incarceration. But Baltimore Circuit Judge Lynn K. Stewart sternly warned Watson that she would make sure he serves the remaining 75 years of the sentence if he commits any offenses during a five-year probationary period after his release.
