A farmers' market that was once a staple at the now-defunct Golden Ring Mall will be resurrected 10 minutes away in eastern Baltimore County. The Eastpoint Mall farmers' market will open Wednesday. Organizers say it will operate from noon to 3 p.m. every Wednesday until October, selling items such as sweet corn, tomatoes, squash, pears and strawberries, most of it produced by Baltimore County farmers. The state has seen an explosion in the number of such markets since 1990, when there were 20. Today, there are an estimated 65, two-thirds of which get support from the state Department of Agriculture.

The CPI tracks the inflation rate used in calculating cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security benefits and tax bracket adjustments.

By the time he entered high school, Darian Kess was already a legend in the making. Though he weighed less than 100 pounds and was only 14 years old, Kess carried with him a large reputation, thanks to his four junior league state wrestling championships and the smooth, almost effortless style with which he dispatched opponents. He did not disappoint. He shattered Archbishop Curley's four-year takedown record in little more than one year. He captured two state titles in two seasons.

Snow showers and plunging temperatures combined last night to glaze roadways across Central Maryland with ice, causing numerous accidents and - in some areas - bringing traffic to a near standstill. Police departments said there were too many accidents to count as the unexpected snow fell, wetting roadways just before temperatures dropped into the 20s and coated roads with a thin but dangerous layer of ice. A state trooper was injured directing traffic on Route 27 at Cabbage Spring Road in Mount Airy in Carroll County, and was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment of leg injuries, police said.
