The fatal shooting Monday morning of a 48-year-old man in Northwest Baltimore was the sixth killing in as many days, pushing the city's homicide count to its highest level in four years. Police said the unidentified man was shot in the chest at about 11:30 a.m. in the 5200 block of Beaufort Ave. near Pimlico Race Course . Detectives and crime scene technicians were focused on an area behind a vacant home in the block. The killing, which came on the heels of a weekend that saw three homicides and a quadruple shooting at an East Baltimore barber shop, brought the number of victims this year to 224. The youngest of the weekend's victims was 20-year-old Sirreal Scott, who was shot Friday afternoon in the 2200 block of Liberty Heights Ave. in a residential area between Mondawmin Mall and Druid Hill Park.

The Orioles' hope of adding a free-agent pitcher took a bit of a hit Thursday when left-hander Jason Vargas signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Kansas City Royals. Vargas, 30, has been someone the Orioles have coveted for years - former pitching coach Rick Adair had Vargas in Seattle and loved the lefty. And so the Orioles made trade overtures in three different seasons to try and get Vargas, but never found a deal to their liking. That the Orioles didn't land Vargas in free agency shouldn't be disappointing for the club, however.

More than four years after Maryland first moved to regulate its largest poultry and livestock farms, nearly 30 percent, or 169 operations, still do not have required state permits mandating measures to control polluted runoff from their chicken houses or feedlots. An environmental watchdog group, the Center for Progressive Reform, contends the state is lagging in protecting the Chesapeake Bay from pollution from such large-scale farms. The Washington-based center said in a new report that the state's regulatory effort is hampered by a lack of staff and skimpy inspections.

Getting it right 80 percent of the time is pretty impressive, especially when that average is over the span of 26 years. It's especially impressive if that percentage reflects an athletic team's ability to win under a particular coach. In her 26 years of coaching field hockey at Fallston High School, Alice Puckett amassed a winning record of right around 80 percent, a number that's even more impressive when the percentage of losses is at around 15 percent (the rest were ties). She retired from coaching four years ago because she wanted to attend all of her daughter's college field hockey games.

Lloyd M. Bunting Jr., a four-time All-American lacrosse player who was one of the outstanding Johns Hopkins University players of the late 1940s, died July 6 of complications from a staph infection at the Pickersgill Retirement Community in Towson.

“Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,”  or so the 1970s country song advised. But today, the recommendation could be not to let your children grow up to journalists, marriage therapists or vets. Strictly speaking finances, those are a few careers that have a low “return on investment,” according to Bankrate.com. In other words, given the amount a student would have to borrow to get a degree in those fields compared to the potential salary, the return isn't much.

Baltimore resident Wes Moore has a standout resume. He's a best-selling author, Rhodes scholar and TV show host, and his rising public profile is fueling speculation he may be eyeing a run for political office . But like many of his fellow city residents, Moore, 34, has been receiving homestead property tax credits he wasn't entitled to. He now owes back taxes to the City of Baltimore. In 2011, an investigation by The Baltimore Sun documented how hundreds of city homeowners were improperly receiving the credits on second homes or rentals.
