It's a small room, but it has plenty of potential, tucked away beyond the lines of traditional treadmills and weight machines at the Maryland Athletic Club Express in Hunt Valley. The room is filled with some items you expect to see at any gym - a rowing machine, a weighted ball, a punching bag - and some you might not: thick battle ropes and TRX suspension straps hanging from the ceiling. Each of the students in personal trainer Doug Bopst's boot camp class last week used one of these pieces of equipment for a minute-long interval.

In countries such as Russia and Iran, the public can vote in elections, but the elections are often viewed as less than fully democratic because the courts can eliminate opponents of the ruling regime from running for office. In America, courts have historically played a minimal role in narrowing the field of candidates. But Maryland appears on the verge of setting a precedent to change that. Last January, in a highly publicized trial, Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold, then Maryland's most senior Republican office holder, was convicted of misconduct in office.

There are few moments during a season when NFL coaches are completely honest and Ravens coach John Harbaugh had one of those Monday afternoon. "We've been trying to put this thing together throughout the season, and we've had some moments, but we've had a lot of challenging moments, too," Harbaugh said. "There are certain things that we are, and there are certain things that we're not," Harbaugh said. "And certainly, at this point, we know what those things are. We are what we are, and we've got to find a way with the guys we have to be a real potent offense, and I really believe we can do that.

The Orioles came to the winter meetings with their eyes on acquiring a left-handed hitter to help fill the void in left field and also at designated hitter. And the most likely avenue to snag that player seems to be in a trade, but from listening to executive vice president Dan Duquette speak last night, it seems like the Orioles aren't close to making a deal. While the Orioles continued to talk about trades, Duquette wouldn't describe any current discussions as better than “lukewarm.” That can obviously change quickly.

Conceding that the Village of Cross Keys is in need of "investment," the owner of the residential, retail and office complex is planning a mostly cosmetic makeover that would revamp the gatehouse, freshen the courtyard of the shopping center, and turn a so-called "tennis barn" on the grounds into a fitness center.

In two decades of covering David Simon's television career, one thing I can say with absolute certainty is that he was never boring or predictable. And he came through again last week in an interview that I had imagined as a simple Q&A advancing the five-episode series finale of “Treme,” which starts at 9 Sunday night on HBO. In my last question, I asked what was next for him. And I was surprised to hear the creator of “The Wire,” which many analysts rightfully consider the greatest series in the history of prime-time television, say he might be leaving the medium.

A recent article, " Baltimore foster care youths get diploma in a day in Philadelphia," Nov. 24) describing the referral of youths in foster care to a high school diploma program in Pennsylvania, highlights one of the glaring deficiencies in Maryland's educational programs - the lack of educational options for students in high school. While Maryland may have the highest ranking school system in the nation, its one-size-fits all approach to educating high school students leaves many of our most at-risk students without reasonable options for securing a high school diploma.
