The Fox telecast of the Baltimore Ravens' loss Sunday was far from perfect, but what a vast improvement over any coverage provided this season by CBS Sports. I am sure some fans are going to insist Fox analyst Daryl Johnston doesn't like the Ravens, or somehow “has it in” for them. But what a relief it was to hear someone call out Ravens coach John Harbaugh for his bad decisions Sunday. Johnston, who seemed about 10,000 times more focused in his thinking and crisp in his analysis than Dan Fouts or Dan Dierdorf has even been for CBS, laid the wood to Harbaugh's first-half miscues both at the time they were made and at the end of the game.

So many of the old rowhouse neighborhoods of Baltimore have the following characteristics — one block good, next block bad; safe by day, violent by night; earnest homeowners here; apathetic renters there. Walk along enough of the side streets, especially on the east and west sides of town, and those contradictions are obvious. Just look at the two blocks of Preston Street east of Greenmount Avenue, in Johnston Square. In another of the overnight shootings that have marked Baltimore's summer, two men were gunned down there around 2 a.m. Friday; one of them died.

The new 1,842-square-foot store, which opened Friday, is located on the mall's second level in the Crate & Barrel wing, mall officials said.

UPDATE: Another new location for Johnston & Murphy is a kiosk on concourse A/B at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, where the retailer also has a full-sized store on concourse D. The 165-square-foot kiosk opened about a week ago, said a spokeswoman for Airmall USA, the airport's retail manager.

Wade Johnstone started playing squash in his native Australia when he was 3 years old. In the 28 years since, the sport has left him exhausted, frustrated, lonely, perpetually broke - and very happy with it all. Last week, Johnstone finished his daily workout and slouched in a chair at the Bare Hills Racquet and Fitness Club in northern Baltimore, where he has been the head squash pro for more than eight years. Six white-walled squash courts with glass doors sprawled in front of him. His office, which is little more than a desk and burgundy swivel chair, sat behind him. “This is my second home,” the 31-year-old said with a laugh.

Jamila Ward and Lionel Jennings had been house hunting on and off for two years when their agent pointed the couple in a new direction: a formerly condemned property in a revitalized area of Baltimore. Some city neighborhoods, just years ago marked by abandoned or deteriorating single-family homes, are becoming places of renewal, with nonprofit agencies buying up properties and renovating them for sale to first-time homebuyers. Ward and Jennings, her fiance, qualified for one of these properties in the Johnston Square neighborhood on the city's east side.

The banner at Greenmount Avenue and Preston Street proclaims the Lillian Jones Apartments are coming. For the past year, I've watched this building take shape in a neighborhood that needed all the help it could get. Come spring, new tenants will begin moving into these 74 units of affordable housing. As City Councilman Carl Stokes told me, Greenmount and Preston had been a "horrible corner. " That's changed as work crews complete the apartment building and rebuild numerous adjacent rowhouses.
