As the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, first-year head coach Lee Hull is intent on adding a passing element to Morgan State's offense. But tailback Lamont Brown III hopes Hull won't overlook what has been the unit's traditional strength: running the football. “I look at myself and Herb [Walker Jr.] as two of the top running backs in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference],” said Brown, a redshirt sophomore. “Whether [Hull] wants to run the ball or we have to get involved with the passing game, we're still going to be there, and he has two of the best running backs in the league and can't forget about us.” Brown, redshirt sophomore Walker and senior Tracy Martin make up a formidable partnership in the offensive backfield.

It's not a stretch to say that the evolving state of the defense will be a prominent storyline for Maryland in 2012. That's what happens when a unit graduates all three starting close defensemen (Brett Schmidt, Max Schmidt, Ryder Bohlander), a starting long-stick midfielder (Brian Farrell) and one of two starting short-stick defensive midfielders (Dan Burns). But the cupboard isn't bare. Junior Jesse Bernhardt, who recorded two goals, two assists, 44 groundballs and 16 caused turnovers while backing up Farrell at long-stick midfielder, is a candidate to shift to close defense, and coach John Tillman has been impressed with what he has seen from players like sophomores Michael Ehrhardt, Emmett Cahill and Taylor Morgan and freshman Goran Murray.

Baltimore police named a new training director Friday, a move that follows two years of resignations, temporary appointments and a nearly fatal 2013 training accident that led the department to improve its safety guidelines. Paul Banach, a 29-year law enforcement veteran, was named the new director of the Professional Development and Training Academy. Banach last worked at the Monroe Township Police Department in New Jersey before retiring in 2008 as a lieutenant. Baltimore police say he worked in Monroe for much of his career.

No. 17 Loyola appeared to have found a successor to goalkeeper Jake Hagelin in junior Michael Bonitatibus, who started the team's first three contests. But since taking over after halftime of Saturday's 11-8 victory over Bellarmine, sophomore Jack Runkel has played the last six quarters in the cage. Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey said he isn't sure which goalie will start when No. 8 Duke visits Ridley Athletic Complex Saturday. “It's a situation where we're just asking them to compete on a daily basis,” Toomey said Thursday afternoon.

The new anti-discrimination law to protect transgendered individuals caused me to reflect upon the new pro-discrimination policies at the Columbia swim center and how we will decide who makes us "feel uncomfortable. " For example, how do we plan to define "female" for our new women-only swim times? If we define "woman" as "absence of a Y chromosome," we will discriminate against transgendered men who identify as women. If we define "woman" as "someone who does not identify as a man," we will discriminate against transgendered women, though they are genetically female.

By now, most Marylanders can spell the word pfiesteria - but figure that if the Chesapeake's newest scourge puzzles scientists, a lay person can't be expected to understand it. Dinoflagellates (same dino as in dinosaur), indeed. Yet even as pfiesteria appears and disappears in a single place, it's also spreading.Ritchie C. Shoemaker, an energetic family-practice physician in Pocomoke City who also knows his way around in marine biology, is the author of the subject's first general-reader book, "Pfiesteria: Crossing Dark Water" (Gateway, 350 pages, $13.95, plus $4.25 shipping; softbound)

Baltimore's long-range strategy for the Inner Harbor changed course abruptly this week as prospective developers of several key parcels disclosed decisions that leave the Market Place area in flux.Alex. Brown & Sons executives politely rejected the city's offer of an exclusive 60-day period to study the Pier 4 Power Plant as a headquarters site, but said they would still like a chance to negotiate for the property without preventing others from doing the same.The investment company's refusal to accept exclusive negotiating rights was an indication that its chief executive officer, who expressed interest in the waterfront landmark several months ago, may be cooling to the idea of converting it to offices.

It's lunch time, and William Brown has stepped away from his desk for a nicotine fix in the lobby of the building where he works. The city employee isn't allowed to smoke here, but he can vape. He flips the switch on his sleek black electronic cigarette, with its digital readout to gauge the nicotine, and inhales. He sucks in on the plastic tip and blows out a big white cloud that dissipates fast. People pass by, but Brown says he rarely gets a reaction. "E-cigarettes have gotten so popular that when you spew out vapor, people put one and one together," said Brown, who works for the Municipal Telephone Exchange.

When the new head of the Baltimore Development Corp. started 15 months ago, she replaced a man who'd become synonymous with development in the city and accepted the task of changing the agency's focus from real estate deals to economic strategy. Much of Brenda McKenzie's first year, however, has been consumed by projects she inherited, such as winning approval of controversial tax-increment financing for infrastructure at Harbor Point. Many observers said McKenzie, who came to Baltimore from a similar job in Boston, has yet to place her stamp on the agency, one of the most complex and controversial in the city and one not used to change after 16 years under the leadership of M.J. "Jay" Brodie.

The Rawlings-Blake administration is proposing new regulations for the city's rapidly growing food truck industry - setting up zones for the mobile chefs to sell their designer grilled-cheese sandwiches, spicy tacos and decadent cupcakes. The legislation, which a City Council committee will consider Tuesday, was written to encourage the vendors while also limiting where they operate to protect brick-and-mortar restaurants. But some truck operators expressed concern the new limits would hurt their business, and the city's proposal was in flux Monday night.

The year 2013 was, for the most part, a positive one on the Baltimore dining scene, except perhaps for trend-spotters. For every sign, there was a counter-sign. The sudden closing of a restaurant was followed by an unexpected, or at least not highly publicized, appearance of a new place. One restaurant would make itself over into an informal version of its formal self, and across town, a fine-dining establishment would open. Small plates continued to spin. Farm-to-table concepts continued to matter, but restaurants started to present them differently.

The Baltimore City school board remained deadlocked Tuesday on whether to renew the contract for Baltimore Talent Development High School, run by the Center for Social Organization of Schools at the Johns Hopkins University, extending a decision that was already deferred one month due to an apparent impasse. Baltimore schools CEO Andres Alonso recommended severing ties with the high-profile organization based on an intensive contract renewal process that scrutinized more than two dozen schools, such as charters, that are run by external operators.

Maryland diners have been taking their own wine into BYOB restaurants for years, but those include only establishments without beer and wine licenses. Beginning Sunday, Maryland diners will be able to take their bottles into some licensed establishments. A new law permitting the practice, widely known as corkage, goes into effect Sunday. Expect confusion, at least at first. A restaurant can choose whether to allow corkage. It can also determine the fee it charges diners for the privilege, which is also known as the corkage fee. But don't expect every restaurant to have corkage up and running on Sunday night.

Q. Some mustard greens and broccoli raab overwintered in our garden. I forgot to pull them up and let them flower and go to seed. Can I save these seeds and plant them in the fall?A. If both varieties were open-pollinated (nonhybrids), you can save the seeds. Cut the seed stalk when the seed pods begin to open, revealing the hard, black seeds. Sow the saved seed every two to three weeks starting in late August for an extended fall harvest.Q. I have a large Siberian elm tree in my back yard that seems to be healthy except for the fact that the bark looks and feels wet at the crotch of each branch and even along the trunk.

Generation X'ers may soon have something baby boomers could only dream about: their own TV station.A proposed cable channel called FAD-TV will pump 24 hours of fashion and design, using MTV-like visuals to capture Young Turks in search of style, from Gap jeans and art-deco furniture to avocado shampoos and ivory nipple rings.Creators say the idea is to bear-trap a generation in flux between teeny-bop Beavis and thirtysomething bores, to speak its language and take its money."MTV prides itself on disenfranchising its audience as it ages," says creator Tony Guccione from a pay phone in New Zealand.
