A new anti-violence program led Baltimore police to raid the home of a convicted drug dealer they had hoped to reform, and to nearly $4 million worth of drugs and cash, a significant seizure for the department. Standing over a table displaying $825,000 cash and nearly 12 kilograms of heroin, police officials said Shawn Antonio Hearn, a 41-year-old with a prior federal drug conviction, had been given a chance through the Operation Ceasefire program. He didn't take that chance, they said.

On behalf of Baltimore's stakeholders, I want to express my thanks to Gregory E. Thornton, the new chief executive officer of Baltimore City Public Schools, for his inspiring words (" Much work to be done ," Aug. 25). In case you're wondering, the stake I hold is a house I recently bought in East Baltimore. It's a big row house, built in 1875, so I don't exactly hold it - really it holds me - but I guess that part isn't so important. Let me get to the point: CEO Thornton tells us he will run the city schools like a business.

Jurors in the Anne Arundel County murder retrial of Albert Gustav Givens will begin a third day of deliberations this morning, after deliberating more than 10 hours over two days this week. The 48-year-old Annapolis handyman is accused of slaying Marlene Kilpatrick, 55, in her Arnold home Jan. 2, 1992. Givens was convicted of first-degree murder in 1993. But in 1999 a judge said defense blunders led to an unfair conviction and ordered a new trial. Givens testified this week, for the first time contending that a relative of the murder victim admitted to killing the woman and then threatened to kill him if he told anyone.

The Orioles went down to the last few hours but have reached terms on an $800,000 deal with their second-round pick, high school shortstop Mychal Givens. Givens, reached by phone 90 minutes before the midnight deadline, said he was eschewing a scholarship to Oklahoma State to sign a contract with the Orioles. Thirty minutes before the midnight deadline, Orioles amateur scouting director Joe Jordan confirmed that the deal is done. "This is kind of the icing on the cake for me," Jordan said.

Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels remained sidelined with leg soreness Tuesday. Daniels hasn't practiced in the past week, but coach John Harbaugh emphasized Monday that the two-time Pro Bowl selection isn't injured. Daniels was limited to five games and 24 receptions last season with the Houston Texans due to a broken leg. In training camp, Daniels told The Baltimore Sun that he's 100 percent recovered from the leg injury from last season. "I don't want to get into specifics too much, but when you have legs and you have hamstrings and groins and stuff like that, there's wear and tear on those things," Harbaugh said.

I am a Jewish American and have always considered myself a Zionist. As someone born shortly after World War II, I know how great a difference the founding of Israel, an independent Jewish state embodying Jewish values, made for all Jews everywhere. We all walked a little taller, felt a little safer. The disappearance of Israel would be a disaster of incalculable proportions, not just for the Israelis but for all of us. Israel is still fighting yesterday's war, however. It cannot win this way, and when it does not win, it loses.

The fate of the 51-year-old rested with this group of 40 youngsters who, with a check of a "yes" or "no" box, would decide whether she would be able to pay her mortgage for the next year. "I really do want to come back," Chavasse, a mother of two, told the students of the Arts & Ideas Sudbury School. "This is the best job I've ever had. I love being with you and seeing you grow.

The violence erupting on the former battlefields of Operation Iraqi Freedom coupled with the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan raises new concerns over the recent exchange of five Taliban commanders for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The swap conflicted with traditional hostage recovery policy and trading of war prisoners and may lead our enemies to conclude that we're now willing to negotiate with kidnappers - potentially endangering lives abroad. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was himself an insurgent detainee released by the U.S. in 2009.

I can't wait to hear the full explanation from NBC as to why it pulled correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin from Gaza on the eve of the Israeli invasion today. The act came after the former Al Jazeera reporter had done two weeks of superb on-the-ground reporting from Gaza. I wrote about that reporting here and here . Mohyeldin was replaced by Richard Engel, the network's chief foreign correspondent. The only explanation the network provided was that the move was made for "security concerns," according to Glenn Greenwald, who reported the story here . As much contempt as I have for the lack of journalistic backbone at NBC News management, I am not going to jump to conclusions as to why the move was made.

At the urging of fire and rescue personnel upset by continuing roadway carnage, Baltimore County's top officials recently announced an effort to reduce pedestrian accidents and fatalities. If anything, the campaign is overdue given that the county recorded 22 pedestrian crash fatalities last year and is on pace to meet and exceed that total this year. At a news conference, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz noted the upward trend, decrying the fact that last year's total was far higher than during any of the five years prior.

When the Orioles drafted Mychal Givens in the second round of the 2009 first-year player draft, he was a two-way prospect who owned a high-90s fastball as a pitcher. And while Orioles initially developed Givens as shortstop, the 24-year-old has gained new life in a transition to a relief pitcher that began last season. Givens took a huge step in his career over the weekend as he was promoted from High-A Frederick to Double-A Bowie. He's also given the Orioles' 2009 draft class some renewed hope -- no player from that class has made it to the major leagues.
