Lawyers for John R. Leopold, the disgraced former Anne Arundel county executive, acknowledge his behavior was inappropriate. But they insist that's not a crime. His attorneys are scheduled to appear at the Court of Special Appeals on Wednesday to argue that the conviction of the veteran Republican politician last January for criminal misconduct in office was based on a flawed reading of an unclear law and should be overturned. "Leopold is unaware of any Maryland law which has imposed criminal liability for boorish, loutish behavior akin to the conduct in the … case," lead attorney Bruce Marcus wrote in a court filing.

It is certainly not news that obesity is a growing health problem in this country and in the city of Baltimore. What is alarming, however, is that obesity has a disproportionately higher rate and impact on low-income, non-white populations in America. The city of Baltimore is no exception with a 36 percent obesity rate, including a 45.3 percent rate among African-Americans. Our goal in Baltimore is to decrease the number of adults who are obese by 15 percent by 2015. We have the opportunity to provide our communities with the tools and support they need to improve their health and slow this trend for the next generation.

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.

A outdated state-owned pier along an industrial stretch of Canton waterfront is one step closer to landing on the open market. The Maryland Board of Public Works approved a request by the Maryland Port Administration on Wednesday to declare the pier and its water access rights as surplus to the state's needs, the first step toward selling the property. The 346,000-square-foot Clinton Street Marine Terminal pier and the narrow half-acre piece of land it attaches to along South Clinton Street in the Canton Industrial Area are valued between $2.5 million and $3.1 million.

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.
