True to the pledge, there is nothing “same old, same old” about this take on a man whose talents - from the lyrics of “West Side Story”...

Frank James MacArthur, the local Internet personality known as the Baltimore Spectator, pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of a short-barreled shotgun after a December standoff with police that he broadcast live. MacArthur's lawyer said his client was not happy with the outcome, but realized he faced another two months in jail before getting another trial date because the prosecutor was tied up in another case. "Baltimore jail is not a good place to be," attorney Mark Van Bavel said.

Early on, local audiences may feel the thrill of anticipation when they hear the narrator of this sprawling Western say, "Alexander Frank James was in Baltimore with his wife and child when he read the news about the assassination of Jesse James." But even though Sam Shepard lends his cryptic, windbeaten visage and a fine, dry delivery to Frank James (Jesse's brother), he never enters the picture again after we hear those words. The line occurs on Page 348 of Ron Hansen's engrossing novel.

Ellicott City resident Charlotte T. Holland, 59, wrote these stories about life on her family's Lisbon farm for her nieces and nephews. She lived there from 1947 to 1953, when most of the property was sold. This is one of several excerpts from her unpublished manuscript. The old man walked slowly down the lane. He carried a railroad flashlight and held its large bright ray of light steady on the road ahead. It was night in our county, but the blackness was broken by this single ray of light.

Here's a tip for those Northeast Baltimore store owners who tote firearms to protect themselves from would-be robbers: Keep your guns close to you. Don't listen to those voices that have shrilly denounced you within the last week.Ever since liquor store owner Sung Kim fatally shot a man attempting to rob his store on Tuesday, we have heard a litany of doomsday prophecies from the bleeding heart liberal horde.

A Baltimore circuit judge denied another bail request Friday for the blogger who held a publicized standoff with city police this month that was broadcast live to thousands of listeners. Judge Lynn K. Stewart said Frank James MacArthur, also known locally as the Baltimore Spectator, posed a continuing threat to public safety and should remain jailed without bail. It was the third time that MacArthur, 37, who lives in the Waverly neighborhood, has been denied bail. MacArthur's attorney, Jill P. Carter, called the revocation a knee-jerk overreaction when many other suspects facing similar charges are often offered bail.

Frank James MacArthur always said what was on his mind. But sometimes, his sister told him, that wasn't the best idea. "Frank is the kind of person who once in a while you wish he would lie because it wouldn't get him in trouble," Jean Arthur said. "Unfortunately for good or bad, he likes to give you his opinion. " "And when it comes to police officers," she added, "they don't like to hear your opinion. " MacArthur's confrontational, brash persona drew thousands to his Baltimore Spectator blog and Twitter page, where he railed against the city of Baltimore, police and the mainstream media.

It could have ended badly. Last Saturday, as many as 10,000 people listened while blogger Frank James MacArthur broadcast his stand-off with the Baltimore City Police Department live via Internet radio. The BPD had been trying for more than a week to issue a warrant written in June after Mr. MacArthur allegedly failed to appear at a probation violation hearing related to a 2009 weapons charge. According to his blog, he spent the days leading up to the confrontation on the run, writing, broadcasting, and trying to ensure he could surrender without being harmed.
