Never mix friendship and money. Stanford Rothschild did, in large quantities. He ended up losing both, according to a lawsuit filed last week that virtually wails betrayal. The longtime Baltimore money manager became estranged from one of his best friends and his biggest customer — a tie torn apart by friction over Rothschild's wife and the defection by his own employees and accountant, alleges a civil complaint filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court. Bosom pal Manuel Dupkin worked behind the scenes to withdraw his fortune from Rothschild's firm and set up Rothschild employees in a new company that would manage the money, the complaint said.

When the Ravens travel to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there will be several familiar faces on the opposing sideline. That includes Browns first-year head coach Mike Pettine, a former Ravens outside linebackers coach under John Harbaugh who got his start with the organization breaking down games in the video department for former Ravens coach Brian Billick. A former standout high school football coach in Pennsylvania, Pettine became a defensive coordinator with the New York Jets when he left the Ravens' staff to work under Rex Ryan and then with the Buffalo Bills prior to landing the Browns' job after last season.

In starless, predawn darkness, I was driving on the Beltway last January, and I was stinking. I'd woken to find my Dickeyville home had no hot water - and no option but to take my friend Carolyn to her appointment, as I'd promised, without showering. For Carolyn and me, hassles like broken water heaters are reminders that she and I are widows. With one hand, we dial the repairmen and write the checks, and with the other grope for an absent hand. Two years earlier, Carolyn - tall, blond and almost catatonic with grief for her beloved Johnny - had sat beside me in our bereavement group.

In 26 years as a Marine, Sgt. Maj. Brian Taylor has lost several comrades. But he never forgot that "puny little squiggly kid" from West Baltimore who "just had all of this motivation and no direction. " Taylor had been a mentor to Sgt. Maurice Bease in the late 1990s, when they served together at a Marine Corps air station in San Diego. When he heard later that Bease died in the attack on the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, he was devastated. "He had so much left in him," Taylor, 47, who now works at a Marine recruiting station in Elkridge, remembers thinking at the time.

It is a story about faith, friendship - and perhaps a little fantasy. It is about three people whose ages span 30 years, but whose careers and experiences led them to find this historic town on Maryland's Eastern Shore as the perfect spot to start the next phase of their lives. Ultimately, they also found one another. Given the size of St. Michaels, with a little more than 1,000 full-time residents according to the 2010 census, it's not unusual that Mike Kerrigan met Peter Paris.

Behave, children. The principal at West Friendship Elementary School wields a paddle.That was the understanding children at the school had back in the 1950s, when the principal's job was also to check students for lice, and shave their heads if they were infested.Those are but a few of the discoveries third-graders at the school have culled from boxes of old papers, forgotten corners of warehouses and interviews with alumni this year. When the school year concludes, the children expect to have completed the first chronicle of their school's origins and 69-year history.

Michael Duarte loves to lift weights and plays varsity baseball as a sophomore at Sparrows Point. Richie Martin is a self-proclaimed hamburger junkie who would rather hunt on Maryland's Eastern Shore than play sports for the Pointers. Despite their differences, the two teenagers set out together May 4 for a day on Dundee Creek in Gunpowder Falls State Park, sliding their white, 17-foot Ranger boat between two piers and into the murky brown water. Their chemistry was evident as soon as the boat hit the water.

The first public hearing before the Baltimore City school board about the recommendations to close schools run by external operators spurred heated exchanges between operators and school officials, and left board members questioning the consistency of the district's decisions about which schools should be given second chances. Earlier this month, Interim CEO Tisha Edwards introduced a sweeping plan that called for seven traditional and externally operated schools to close. The contracted schools recommended for closure are: Baltimore Talent Development High School, Baltimore Community High School, Bluford Drew Jemison East and Bluford Drew Jemison West STEM academies, Baltimore Civitas Middle/High School, Baltimore Antioch Diploma Plus High School, and Baltimore Liberation Diploma Plus High School.

Dignity Players' current production of "Art" is a near-flawless effort - a must-see work for everyone who values friendship and realizes what art contributes to life. Yasmina Reza's 1998 Tony Award-winning play depicts how our perception of and reaction to art can test friendships and opinions, yet shows how we can learn from one another in confrontational situations. Dignity's production raises the standard of excellence for acting in local theater, as three actors portray characters who are confident, threatened and pacifistic.

I've known Tom for so long that I can't remember when I first met him. But when I did, I'm sure it involved one of us getting smashed into a locker. Every lifelong friendship starts in its own way. It happened, I think, during our first week at St. Louis Country Day, where we were among the 67 squirming 11-year-old boys still trying to figure out how to tie our school neckties, not to mention which teachers gave you detention for getting it wrong. Eight years of such stuff, evidently, was the key to getting into colleges such as Harvard and Yale.

They are together all the time, sitting next to each other at their lockers, walking from meeting to meeting and relaxing in the cold tub after a long practice. When Terrell Suggs and Haloti Ngata walk out to the Ravens' practice field side by side - which they do at virtually the same time every day - the contrast remains striking. Suggs doesn't walk so much as he struts, his head bobbing with each step. He surveys his surroundings, poses for the assembled media and belts out lyrics from whatever song is in his head.

COLLEGE PARK - Through the first half Sunday, St. Frances' football team stuck close to Friendship Collegiate Academy from Washington D.C., the best team the Panthers have played in the five-year history of their program. In the third quarter, however, Friendship took advantage of short field position and four Panthers turnovers to score four touchdowns and come away with a 32-6 victory in the Brothers In Arms Classic at Byrd Stadium. The Knights (2-0) gave St. Frances a rude awakening to the kind of competition they can expect the rest of the season with a schedule that includes such Maryland powerhouses as Gilman, Good Counsel and DeMatha.
