The Baltimore City Council on Monday unanimously approved Federal Hill Neighborhood Association President Eric T. Costello to fill a vacant seat, but several members expressed concern over a process they said lacked true community involvement. Costello, 33, a New York native, is an auditor in the U.S. Government Accountability Office. After the council vote, he was sworn in by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and took his seat representing the 11th District, which includes Federal Hill, Bolton Hill and downtown.

HERSHEY, Pa. -- The final quarter of the season began last night with a loss and the Skipjacks have realized for the first time that their mediocre play is becoming a serious problem in the standings.For the first time this season many in the Jacks' locker room felt the fear of not being a part of the AHL playoffs at the end of next month."It's probably the first time I've been able to say this so far this season but it's do or die," said Jacks coach Robbie Laird, whose third-place team is 4-5-1 in February.

Even if the Skipjacks had lost in Springfield, Mass., last night they wouldn't have come home losers.Even if they had fallen flat on their faces, which they appeared to be doing in the first period, behind by a pair of goals, Jacks coach Robbie Laird would have come back to Baltimore with a smile.But, as they have done so well during the past week, the road-weary Jacks fought back against the Northern Division leaders, getting a goal from defenseman Joel Quenneville with 8:53 remaining to earn a 5-5 tie."

Simply put, the difference came down to confidence.The Skipjacks came into last night's game winless in their last six. Adirondack had lost seven of 10, including the first two of a four-game trip.Both teams were preseason shoo-ins for playoff berths but are now struggling and fighting for their lives in the AHL Southern Division race."We've had our backs to the wall for a couple of weeks, hovering around fourth place," Red Wings coach Barry Melrose said. "They've been losing and we've been losing, too. I said to my guys before the game, 'Let's see how they play under pressure, knowing they might miss the playoffs.

Backing in wasn't the most pleasant way for the Skipjacks to clinch third place in the AHL's Southern Division, but as coach Rob Laird said after last night's 7-6 overtime loss in Utica, N.Y., "We are where we want to be."The Jacks, locked at third place after Hershey beat Adirondack, will face second-place Binghamton in the first round of the AHL playoffs. They now have three games remaining this weekend that are meaningless, but Laird doesn't want to see the type of sloppy play the Jacks exhibited last night.

The Skipjacks are counting down the minutes until they take the ice against Binghamton at the Arena tonight.Down 3-0 in the AHL Southern Division semifinals just a week ago -- and left for dead in the minds of even their most ardent supporters -- the never-say-die Jacks have rallied to within one game of the faltering Rangers and can tie the series 3-3 with a win tonight (7:30, WITH-AM 1230)."We never counted ourselves out," said coach Robbie Laird after his team's 5-3 win in Binghamton, N.Y., on Wednesday night.

As I view the constant protesting by residents of Ferguson, Mo., nearly two months after a police officer fatally shot an unarmed teenager, I know that it's only a matter of time before the streets of Baltimore are filled with the same sustained clarion call for justice that has rocked the once inconspicuous Midwestern city. On the surface, the city of Baltimore and Ferguson are worlds apart. With a population nearly 30 times larger than Ferguson, Baltimore is a major American city and cultural hub. From Francis Scott Key to H.L. Mencken to Thurgood Marshall, Baltimore has produced more than its fair share of American icons.

I pass no judgment on the committee members charged with picking a nominee for the vacancy in the City Council's 11th District. I do not know their situations or any pressures they may have been under. In my heart of hearts, I feel nearly all of them agreed to serve on the committee because they believed they could make a positive impact in their community and a responsible choice for the district. The City Council members serving on the committee seemed deferential to its other members as representative of the district, a district the council members do not live in or serve directly.

Two City Councilmen plan to submit legislation today requiring every police officer in Baltimore to wear a body camera that records audio and video as the officers go about their jobs. Warren Branch, chairman of the council's public safety committee, and Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young's proposal would permit the Baltimore Police Department to phase-in use of the body cameras during the first year after the bill, if approved, becomes law. The bill comes amid a series of high-profile allegations of police misconduct in Baltimore and around the country.

Even though he was a child during rock 'n' roll's hedonistic late '80s, Jack Barakat hopes to inject the same party-hard attitude into the Fells Point bar scene. The 26-year-old guitarist of All Time Low — which started in Towson and has blossomed into one of pop-punk's most known bands — is now a co-owner of The Rockwell, the bar-lounge hybrid that originally opened as Vale Tudo last November. (The name change, which became official in June, aims to better reflect the rock vibe, according to management.)

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.

A Baltimore police officer will plead guilty to a felony animal cruelty charge after he fatally beat and choked his girlfriend's Jack Russell terrier, his attorney said Tuesday. Alec Eugene Taylor, 28, a five year veteran of the department was charged in March after the dog's body was exhumed and analyzed by animal services. Taylor's attorney, Warren A. Brown, said his client regretted what he did. Brown blamed the attack on the puppy to the stress of Taylor's work and daily life, a combination that led him to act "in a way that customarily he wouldn't.
