Otis Rolley is scrambling up porches in a quiet West Baltimore neighborhood, undaunted by a steady drizzle. He leaps over baby gates, dodges yapping poodles and asks voters to support him in the primary election. A few years ago, few outside City Hall and local urban-planning circles were familiar with Rolley. Today, his purple campaign signs dot neighborhoods throughout the city, and supporters include young professionals and technology leaders. In this neighborhood of tidy brick rowhomes just south of Mondawmin Mall, residents say they have gotten to know the 37-year-old candidate through his dogged campaigning.

A friend gave me some honest advice: Summer starts to go by more quickly after the Fourth of July celebration. I've learned this to be true, and now I've got to get moving on a lot of stuff I plan to accomplish before Labor Day — or maybe Oct. 1. Or perhaps Thanksgiving. My plans are fluid, and if I don't achieve them all, at least I've set down a list. I've never been to Chincoteague, Va., or Assateague Island, despite spending weeks each summer in nearby Delaware. I've never been south of Salisbury, and I want to make it to Princess Anne and Pocomoke City, as well as the Eastern Shore towns of Virginia.

"The Orioles should take full-page ads in Baltimore newspapers to trumpet the news: We are the Baltimore Orioles and proud of it. They should apologize and ask to be forgiven for this despicable act against its own city. Let Washington get its own baseball team." Those are the words of John Steadman, who told stories in Baltimore newspapers for 55 years. He wrote those words in 1991, but they could have just as easily appeared in these pages a decade earlier, and yes, a decade later, too. So here we are, still talking about the same topic, still treating a piece of baseball laundry like a holy grail.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It is nearly a straight shot from the Jersey City waterfront overlooking the rubble of the twin towers up to Al Salam, the third-floor mosque here that for more than a decade has been tainted with suspicions of terrorism. First there was the 1990 murder of a militant rabbi, linked to an Al Salam regular. Then there was the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, spurred, prosecutors said, by the incendiary sermons of blind Egyptian cleric Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and carried out by his followers.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Ten years ago, New Jersey officials decided they were tired of watching from the sideline as Jersey City school and city officials seemed more concerned with providing jobs for friends than with falling student test scores. So state officials took charge of the system, kicking out the superintendent and school board members.A decade into state control, attendance is up slightly in Jersey City schools and test scores have improved, but there has been no drastic turnaround in student performance.

WEST NEW YORK, N.J. - A motley pack of seven dogs slept near two gigantic heaters in the cavernous boiler room of a block-long blue building one recent cold evening. Night was falling on the West New York dog pound, better known as the Department of Public Works garage. The garage, where police cars, trucks and street-cleaning machines come and go at all hours, was never intended as an animal shelter. But months ago the town's health department resorted to housing stray dogs there because the shelter in Jersey City, run by the Hudson County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, was full after abruptly adopting a "no kill" policy last year.

Las Vegas is one of my favorite places, but there's a tinge of sadness on the Strip these days. It's not a lack of crowds or dearth of attractions. The streets, shows, restaurants and casinos are packed as always. No, what's made the people of Las Vegas so blue is the knowledge that, no matter how much fun they offer today, they simply can't compete with the biggest fun show in town: the 2012 Republican presidential primary, playing in every city and town across America. It's so hilarious, they should charge admission.

Most nights, depending on the time of the month, about 40 to 60 people will step in from Gay Street, just south of The Block in Baltimore, for a religious service and a free meal. "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus," said Helen Meewes, the mission's superintendent, quoting from the Book of Philippians. Meewes is one of three missionaries, including Karen Harp and Gunhild Carlson, who reside upstairs and staff one of Baltimore's oldest nondenominational, charitable institutions.

You did not have to be around for the glory days of the Orioles to understand why putting Baltimore back on the road jerseys is so uplifting to the city's soul. "Every other team comes in here with their city's name on the front of their jerseys," said Kris Burton of Parkville as he stood inside the Gallery at Harborplace for the unveiling of the new jerseys yesterday afternoon. "It means a lot to me. I'm proud of Baltimore. It doesn't matter how bad [the Orioles have] been or how much they've been losing.

Angry? You bet I'm angry! Another one of those Men's Health magazine rankings has come out, and typically enough, Baltimore comes off badly: We're the fourth-angriest city in America. Maybe we're still mad over what the magazine said in January: That of the 100 best cities for men, we're 93rd. Or maybe we've been steamed since November 2004, when the magazine's sexiest cities in America rankings came out and Baltimore was a bottom-scraping 96th. But we're probably just generally irked because we're also middlingly stupid, possibly impotent and sort of bummed out. Says who?
