WASHINGTON -- After spending four years and $1.5 billion creating a haven for Kurds in northern Iraq, the United States stood by this week as the Kurdish territory again became a zone of danger.This time the attack came not from Iraq but from a U.S. ally, Turkey, and it was aimed not at opponents of Iraq President Saddam Hussein but at Kurdish guerrilla bases used to launch attacks against Turkey.But the result was the same: Kurdish civilians were again forced to flee their villages.U.S. acquiescence to the invasion by 35,000 Turkish troops raised questions about the purpose of a humanitarian operation that is already feeling the strains of age and weakening financial support, of fighting between rival Kurdish factions and of growing impatience in Congress for the mission to end."

Three Vietnam War veterans stood on the ramparts of Fort McHenry, gazed onto the Patapsco where British warships launched hundreds of rockets and mortar shells almost 200 years ago, and imagined the scene that unfolded during the Battle of Baltimore. "I know rain was pouring down, and with all the shooting and shelling for more than 24 hours, they had no idea if they were going to survive," said Chuck Gallinger, 69, of Oshkosh, Wis., who served in Southeast Asia in 1966. Gallinger and his friends - in town for a reunion of their unit, the 709th Maintenance Battalion of the 9th Infantry - had stopped for a taste of the Star-Spangled Spectacular, Baltimore's bicentennial celebration of its defense against the British and the writing of the national anthem.

All the jumpy, hopscotch-style editing in the world can't save Haven, a blow- and weed-scented drama written and directed by young Cayman Islands native Frank E. Flowers. It's one of those fragmented narratives, the curse of the success of Pulp Fiction and Crash, wherein we see in passing somebody throwing up on a lawn, and then a half-hour later in flashback it's revealed who the puker is and why he's upchucking. I don't know about you, but when I see someone hurling I want immediate identification.

Over the last six months I volunteered with a team of supporters to elect Heather Mizeur as Maryland's next governor. Heather's campaign was inspiring, honest, respectful, progressive and transparent. She ran on issues that matter to Maryland's people. She brought up things that others wouldn't dare touch in a campaign (for example, death with dignity, disability rights and marijuana legalization). She inspired so many new people to care and rally around the vision we share for Maryland.

If you were in a hurry, you could miss it.A small, dimly lighted sign no bolder that the one marking the card shop next door announces the New Haven Lounge. It's a humble setting for a serious jazz club and one of Baltimore's best-kept secrets. The kind of place that used to thrive on Manhattan's 52nd Street or Greenwich Village in the '40s and '50s, the Haven is a relaxed, racially mixed club packed with smoke, atmosphere and enthusiastic fans of modern jazz.Tucked away in Northwood Plaza, a generic strip mall that also offers a Hechinger's and Bill's Carpet, the place is anything but mundane inside.

Now all they need is a building permit.Officials at Carroll Haven, the Westminster adult day-care center, have for the last three years been trying to raise $1.3 million for construction of their new, 16,000-square-foot building.And while the $100,000 state grant announced late last week puts them over the top, construction of the center will have to wait until the county issues a building permit."At this point, all we're waiting for is a permit," said Richard Glaser, executive director at Carroll Haven.

The sun has barely set, but a well-dressed crowd has already gathered outside the New Haven Lounge in Northeast Baltimore. In fact, the line snakes and stretches out the door this balmy Friday night. Folks are a tad restless, anxious even, because jazz sensation Roy Ayers is the show-stopping headliner. You hear a few people cajoling the doorman, telling him they have to, make that, must get inside. Hey, you really can't blame them. If you are a jazz enthusiast, if you enjoy the rush of live music, "The Haven" is definitely the place to be. For nearly four decades, the popular establishment has attracted top-notch jazz musicians and entertainers, along with standing-room-only audiences.

The Ravens were all smiles after their three-day minicamp last week, which could be an indication of how much confidence they have that they are on the verge of a big turnaround season or just how happy everyone is to get in a little beach time over the next month. It has been a rocky offseason, but the new offense seems to be coming along nicely and most of the off-the-field unpleasantness of the past few months is behind, so coach John Harbaugh has plenty of reason to be upbeat with about four weeks to go before his team opens training camp.

Several steps away from the crumbling edge of East 26th Street in Charles Village, a construction worker slowly unrolled a long yellow measuring tape into a circular hole about the size of a sewer manhole lid. Foot after foot of the tape disappeared as he sought to learn the depth of the hole being bored straight down into the earth by a hulking orange drilling machine anchored not far from St. Paul Street. Another worker at the block-long construction site Tuesday said the hole is the first of many that will be cut into the street as part of a new design to keep East 26th Street and the earth beneath it from spilling down onto the railroad tracks, which run parallel to the street, as they did last week when a century-old retaining wall collapsed amid heavy rain.

Why President Obama was off in the Asian Pacific while Russia was stirring up trouble in eastern Ukraine has caused critics to question his foreign policy priorities, not to mention his resolve. At one point he was asked what was "the guiding principle" of the Obama Doctrine. After arguing that American relations with Asian countries "have never been stronger," the president challenged those who have outspokenly questioned, as he put it, "the failure to use military force. " Indeed, he has specifically declared there is "no military solution" to the Ukraine crisis, causing some to doubt his toughness.

Baltimore city schools' finance chief will leave at the end of the school year to head back north to Connecticut. Victor De La Paz was appointed chief financial officer of the New Haven, Conn. school district Tuesday night, according to published reports.  According to the New Haven Independent, De La Paz will start his post there on July 14. De La Paz was brought here from Hartford, Conn. by former schools CEO Andres Alonso in 2012, and his departure means that Baltimore will most likely see a complete turnover of central office leadership when incoming superintendent Gregory Thornton starts his tenure on July 1.  Thornton announced key appointments to his cabinet, including a new chief of staff and chief academic officer, last week.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon was out recruiting Wednesday, and a team spokesman said he was still considering possible discipline for forward Charles Mitchell. The sophomore was sent to the locker room during the first half of the Tuesday night's 64-47 home win over Virginia Tech after being disruptive on the bench. There is a possibility that Mitchell, the team's leading rebounder, could sit out Sunday's regular season finale at home against No. 5 Virginia. Turgeon had said Tuesday night that he spoke with Mitchell after the game and would revisit the incident again Wednesday before making a final determination on any discipline.
