Vince Bagli retired 13 years ago after spending more than three decades as WBAL television's genial sports anchor. Before that, he had a five-year stint at the old News American. Now 81, he lives near Finksburg and enjoys an afternoon out with his wife, Jean, at the theater. Some weeks ago, he saw the play, Doubt, which he called "a fine piece of work" and reminded him of his days growing up in Baltimore's Hamilton neighborhood and of Sister Isabelle at St. Dominic's Parochial School.

So far this year, 223 local TV stations have changed hands. This is the biggest wave of media consolidation ever - and it's all happening in small and mid-level markets, involving companies most people have never heard of. Leading this wave is Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group. Sinclair alone is behind seven deals this year, including a $985-million deal to buy nine stations from Allbritton Communications. But it's not alone; other media companies are also racing to gobble up stations.

Sheila Dixon will likely remain Baltimore's mayor until she is sentenced - which could be months from now - or steps down, according to city and state lawyers. But even that is open to legal interpretation. It's one of the many questions raised Tuesday following Dixon's misdemeanor conviction for spending charity gift cards on herself, and acquittal on three similar charges. Also up in the air is what her sentence will be and whether prosecutors plan to retry her on the one count the jury could not decide.

It is the question Maryland basketball fans seem to be asking themselves. Heck, it's the question Mark Turgeon must be asking himself when he goes to sleep at night and gets up in the morning What has happened to Alex Len? The player who had Terps fans chanting "We love you Alex" during his impressive debut last month against Albany and then followed up with equally strong performances against Radford and Cornell has slowly disappeared in Maryland's four ACC games. Except for a few spurts on the offensive end against N.C. Stateand on the defensive end against Wake Forest and Georgia Tech, the 7-1 freshman from the Ukraine has looked out of sync.

Lois Gresdo has long enjoyed hearing the little voices and the peals of laughter just outside her front door. But her street will be a quieter place when Sacred Heart of Mary School shuts its doors after 87 years of providing a Catholic education. "The school is a very positive presence for these children - and for this neighborhood," Gresdo said Wednesday after word of the school's demise reached this middle-class neighborhood in far East Baltimore, a stone's throw from Dundalk.

Human trafficking happens because prostitution is illegal ("House of ill-repute," July 29 ). Prostitution is illegal only because the majority of people don't like it. Making something a crime forces it underground which is what enables abuse to take place. What happens between two consenting adults should not be the business of anyone if no one is harmed.
