As the Baltimore Colts were leaving the city in early 1984, the team's director of sales recalled sitting at the Rusty Scupper bar at the Inner Harbor, wondering what he should do next. A friend told Bob Leffler he should start his own advertising agency. After about three months, he had one employee and his first clients, including a moving company. By late summer, he landed his first big ad contract, with Laurel Race Course, and moved into a North Charles Street office. This month, the Leffler Agency turned 30. It has become the ad agency for numerous sports-related clients, including athletic programs for colleges such as the Naval Academy, Towson University, George Mason University and the University of Delaware.

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings urged state lawmakers Monday to raise Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10, arguing that lower wages will continue to strain government programs that help the poor. The Baltimore Democrat added his voice to a chorus of Democratic leaders backing Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposal, which would increase the minimum hourly rate from $7.25 and tie future wage hikes to the rate of inflation. Speaking at a hearing of the Senate Finance Committee, Cummings said workers who earn the current minimum wage depend heavily on public assistance to make ends meet.
