A Baltimore man convicted in the 2003 shooting deaths of two men at an Essex party was sentenced to life plus 20 years in prison Wednesday, prosecutors said. Jaron Grade, 36, was first convicted by a jury in December 2004 and sentenced to life plus 20 years, but the Maryland Court of Appeals later overturned the conviction. The panel ordered a new trial because it found that a Baltimore County judge violated Grade's rights by replacing a juror with an alternate during his trial with no input from the defense.

A dispute between two groups at a Crofton house party probably led to the shooting early Sunday of a 22-year-old man, police said Monday. Anne Arundel County police said officers responded to calls of shots fired outdoors about 2:22 a.m. in the area of Judicial Way and Lower Court — near Route 424 and Reidel Road. Witnesses told police that a man was helped into a vehicle, which drove away. Police said the 22-year-old was at a party on Lower Court before the shooting. He was involved with one of the two groups of people with a dispute, but spokesman Justin Mulcahy said Monday the nature of the argument was not immediately known.

On occasion, a sequel is better than the original film. That's the case with ''House Party 2.'' The first film (1990) was amusing; the second is more so.Yes, it's crude. Yes, it is vulgar, but taken on that level, it is good fun.As was the case with the original, the sequel stars Kid 'N Play, a recording duo also known as Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin who, in the first film, staged a house party.In the second, they stage a bigger party, this one in the dining hall of the faculty lounge at Harris College, which is where Kid hopes to enroll.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- It may be the only time all year that U.S Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun wears a name tag the size of a large index card that says in big, bold letters: HARRY.Likewise, it will probably be the only time this year that the president-elect will pin to his jacket an ID informing people that, Hello, he's BILL.The casual name tags, required for justices, senators, governors, chief executive officers and presidents-elect alike, are one of the traditions of "Renaissance Weekend," the annual holiday retreat for the nation's best and brightest -- and their children -- that the Clintons will attend this week in Hilton Head, S.C., as they have done every New Year weekend for the past eight years.

When Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler arrived at a house party of teenagers in June, he pushed through the crowd, past youngsters dancing on a table and a smattering of red plastic cups. One of the revelers snapped a photo. As the night wore on, teens at the South Bethany rental home posted tweets, photos and videos of a bash labeled the "eviction party" for its intensity - a celebration where underage participants later confirmed many were drinking alcohol. Gansler, a Democrat who is running for governor, said this week that he stopped by the Delaware beach house to talk briefly with his teenage son and then left.

Your recent editorial on Congress and the federal budget was typical of The Sun blasting the GOP ( "Budget battle rejoined," Sept. 12). President Obama hasn't yet proposed a single balanced budget, nor has he proposed one item of the Bowles-Simpson task force. But he gets no blame whatsoever. The tea party representatives in Congress were voted in by their constituents, just like the socialists in Maryland. So they too have to be in tune with their voters, whether you like it or not. In the future, please look at both sides of the discussion.

SEATTLE --A gunman fatally shot six people at a private house party yesterday morning before committing suicide, in the worst mass murder in this city in more than two decades, the Seattle police said. About 7 a.m., homeowners on a quiet street in the Capitol Hill neighborhood heard gunshots and called the police to a small, two-story home just a half-block from a middle school. An officer on patrol arrived a few minutes later and spotted the gunman standing outside the house with a shotgun.

Picking the perfect house-party playlist can be a tricky task. Maybe you'll start with a little Bob Marley, ease into some vintage James Brown and then go full throttle with Justin Timberlake's new single. Or you could spice it up with an '80s monster ballad or two somewhere in the middle. Playlists - which can be burned onto a CD or uploaded into an iPod - are this generation's mixtapes. They set the tone for home parties and the pace in the gym. Music downloading Web sites such as iTunes have made millions of songs available, allowing average house-party hosts to easily play DJ for their friends.
