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.

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.

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.
