For sale (maybe): Brick 2 story, 4 BR Arcadia home w/basement and deck, room for four kids, two dogs, a judge and the governor. Two months into his term, Gov. Martin O'Malley has been told, it seems, that the time has come to sell the family's Walther Avenue home in Baltimore. The first family has been living more or less full time at the governor's mansion in Annapolis since January, and O'Malley said his wife, Judge Catherine Curran O'Malley, is pushing to sell their home of 12 years.

An Arbutus man was killed in his home this week by three people who later dumped his body in the stairwell of a vacant home in Baltimore, Baltimore County police said Saturday. Three men were charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death on Saturday - Kevin Brooks Pendergraph, 31, of Baltimore; Roy Bernard Munson, 18, of Pikesville; and Eric Patrick Henry, 37, who is homeless. The men were all held without bail and did not have attorneys listed in court records.

He has traveled to so many cities and countries since the Olympics ended, when he wakes up in the morning, it's almost impossible for Michael Phelps to remember the date, or even what day it is. Is today Friday? Or is it Thursday? Without looking at his BlackBerry, he has no clue. Luckily for him, he has people - mainly his agent, Peter Carlisle, and his media manager, Drew Johnson, both of Octagon - to tell him where his schedules dictate that he needs to be. His schedule called for him to be in Baltimore yesterday, marking just the second time he has been home since he won eight gold medals in Beijing.

More homes sold in the Baltimore metro region last month than in any December since 2006, as the housing market continued its slow recovery. A total of 2,164 units closed in December, up 11 percent from the same time in 2012 and 6 percent since November, according to data provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI), a subsidiary of online listing service MRIS. In December 2006, 2,583 units sold, according to the numbers, also from the George Mason University Center for Regional Analysis.   "This increase in closed sales from November does not follow typical seasonal patterns as this change is generally flat," according to the RBI analysis.

Reynoud Duplessis and three of his children recently sat in M&T Bank Stadium, rooting for their home team. As they watched the Ravens play the Carolina Panthers, they kept a close watch on the ticker of scores under the scoreboard. "Let's go, Saints," screamed Nicholas Duplessis, 20. "Way to go, Joe [Horn]," yelled his sister Phylissa, 19. There was a time when they would be in the Superdome watching the New Orleans Saints play. But not anymore. During the Ravens' game in October, a picture of the Duplessis family appeared on the JumboTron, reminding the members of why they were in Baltimore.

BALTIMORE'S public schools teeter on the brink of financial collapse. Homicides occur at a stubborn rate of five a week. Drugs, despite increases in arrests and treatment, are far too prevalent in far too many places. Erica Jones, 24, who fondly remembers life as a young girl in West Baltimore, acknowledges this, or at least a good bit of it. Still, the single mother of a 4-year-old girl wants to be a part of bringing the city back. She writes: "I understand that in my old neighborhood there has been a hike in crime, the streets are filled with drug dealers and there hasn't been a block party in over 10 years.

Pity poor Lansing Avenue. One block and about 20 homes just off Broadway and North Avenue was all city planners gave it, and it couldn't even sustain that. Residents say it was a decent place to live until the drugs came, which also led to shootings and set fires. The good residents got fed up, the bad ones didn't care, everyone moved out, and nature took over. For years, pigeons have claimed one of the roofless brick rowhomes. Another is called the "Tree House" because a trunk has burst through the second-story window, prying a concrete block addition away from the main structure and sprouting leafy branches that provide a cool, if unwanted, canopy.

"It was frustrating that the Orioles couldn't move their game," said Kevin Williams, who was celebrating his 53rd birthday at the harbor with friends. "But this is the next best thing. And it's free, you know. " Over at Camden Yards, some Orioles fans were ducking out early to catch the Ravens on TV. But manager Buck Showalter didn't seem to mind.

More than 100 persons crowded into the chapel at the Calvin B. Scruggs Funeral Home in east Baltimore on a cold, snow-dusted morning. They ranged from other Baltimore actors who had won featured roles in HBO's "The Wire," like Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, to Raymond Parker, the high school music teacher who rook Chew under his wing at Patterson High, taught him to sing Italian opera and helped him get an audition that led to a four-year scholarship at Morgan State University.
