Yesterday, he released his first project of original material as a FreeBandz member: "Green Light," which you can download for free here (contains explicit language).

Environmental regulators said Wednesday that construction on the Harbor Point project in Baltimore could begin by the end of the month, after they approved a plan to measure air quality at the former factory site laced with toxic chemicals. Harbor Point developers will begin taking samples Thursday to establish a baseline for air quality near the project, where construction plans call for temporary exposure of contaminated soil. State and federal regulators still must approve a plan to monitor the air quality while construction is underway.

The state Public Service Commission Wednesday denied a request from the owners of century-old Yellow Cab of Baltimore to prohibit Uber Technologies Inc. from operating a luxury town car service that can be hired by smartphone. Yellow Cab officials believe the San Francisco-based company that launched service in the city and Baltimore County late last month has an unfair competitive advantage because the startup does not comply with safety and insurance regulations. But Uber contends that it is a technology company with an app that allows independent drivers and upscale customers to do business on their own. The commission staff recommended that Yellow Cab's request be denied because at the time of its review, Uber had not begun operations.

The recent editorial on strengthening domestic violence restraining orders documents the effectiveness of such orders ("End the abuse," Feb. 2). Here are some ways that also could prevent/end abuse. •Strengthen the laws in states that consider tissue damage such as severe bruises misdemeanors and only issue restraining orders if there is damage to organs such as the spleen, a green light to abusers. •Create laws to stop people such as some judges from holding victims responsible as having provoked the abuse.

Continuing a pattern from last week, Ray Lewis has been present during the portion of this week's practices open to the media. But the 13-time Pro Bowl inside linebacker is still on the injured reserve list with a designation to return, which is why defensive coordinator Dean Pees isn't making any assurances about Lewis' return for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. “It'd be great to have him back,” Pees said after Thursday's practice. “I said that a couple weeks ago when we first started kind of seeing him come back.

Lighting Maryland homes with power from giant turbines off Ocean City moved closer to reality Thursday as federal officials announced they are ready to go forward with leasing vast areas along the Mid-Atlantic coast for wind farms. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said at a news conference at Baltimore's Inner Harbor that his staff found that no significant impact to the environment, shipping or other activities would result from letting developers start studies and plans for harnessing ocean winds from New Jersey to Virginia.

The list is long enough to give contractors a stiff workout. There are roof repairs and resurfacing due for Georgetown East Elementary School and painting for George Fox Middle School. Mills-Parole Elementary will get tiles, carpet and terrazzo. Crofton Elementary is due for kitchen equipment and fire sprinklers. Those are just some of the more than two dozen projects that the Anne Arundel County Board of Education approved this week as consent items — they are funded, and the board has given its blessing for them to be awarded to contractors.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel came out of his 73-pitch simulated game with the team's instructional league with his surgically reconstructed right knee feeling good, he and was given the green light to pitch in the postseason.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli should have ample power in his lineup this season, however it's configured. That doesn't mean his team will play station-to-station baseball. Everyone in spring training will have the green light to steal bases once the games begin next week - a freedom that will be dispensed more carefully in the regular season. Some players will be allowed to run whenever they want. Others will have to wait for the sign. "They'll show me what they can and can't do," Mazzilli said yesterday after the Orioles completed another base-running drill on the main field.

The news about the appearance of a new gambling casino is becoming routine and without serious clamor from any of our illustrious elected officials - or newspaper as well ("MGM was the right bet," Dec. 24). The utilities to operate these newly created villages are tremendous and a drain on the already existing supply. Added on to the abundant gas and electric necessary to fuel these entities are the maxed-out water and sewer systems. And finally, there is this clearing of the land of trees, brush, etc., which will deprive homes to all its natural inhabitants.

Scoring goals behind his back or behind his head comes naturally for Maryland's Jay Carlson. He was taught to shoot every way possible by his father Chip, who played at Johns Hopkins. “When I was younger, my dad told me to score however you can,” the sophomore attackman recalled Tuesday afternoon. “I remember playing in the backyard and my dad just fed me and I was just kind of having fun with it and it ended up working pretty well for me. So I just kept it going. It can be risky, but I just try to get it in the goal when I can.” As the No. 9 and sixth-seeded Terps (10-3)

It doesn't matter how far Kyle Dixon is from the goal - if you leave him open, he's going to shoot. The Chesapeake Bayhawks midfielder showed it this past week in St. Petersburg, Fla. Dixon netted three two-point goals in the Bayhawks' season-opening 17-14 victory over the Rochester Rattlers, tying the single-game league record he set in May 2012. Tonight, Dixon will look to continue his prolific shooting from beyond the two-point arc when the Bayhawks host the New York Lizards in their home opener at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Having emerged as the top playmaker for No. 8 Johns Hopkins, Zach Palmer's most lasting play was the one-handed, wraparound goal he scored in the team's 11-10 overtime win against then-No. 1 Virginia on March 24. That play symbolized the independence with which Palmer, a natural lefty who curled around the left post and tossed the ball into the net with his right hand, has been granted by the Blue Jays coaching staff. “I think I'm more apt to be creative,” Palmer said, adding that he had never attempted that shot in practice or in a game.

The blast of wintry air last week reminded me that it's not uncommon for people to get confused about their heating system. Questions range from: Does my house have a heat pump or just a furnace? How come the only time my heat pump blows nice hot air is when the blue light is on? Why does our new house seem colder than our old house even though both thermostats were set at 66 degrees? My answer: Did you ever think that maybe your thermostat is wrong? For a quick fix, try adjusting it to whatever setting keeps you comfortable, then lower it a degree at a time until you can just barely stand it. That's where you should leave it if you want to save fuel.

Now, after a whirlwind stretch in which he was the surprise hire for the Orioles' top executive post and then put together a patchwork roster that made the playoffs for the first time in 15 years, Duquette is near the top of the fraternity that had shut him out.
