When Ken Kolodner first entered the realm of traditional world music, he had no aspirations to play in public. His only goal, he said, was to one day play with other people. Now, about 30 years later, Kolodner, 53, a Baltimore resident since birth, is viewed as one of the most influential players of the hammered dulcimer, a string instrument, in the country. Also a dulcimer teacher, fiddler and hammered mbira player, the self-taught musician has released several recordings and books and performed for nearly two decades as one-third of the Baltimore-based world folk-music trio Helicon.

Kolodner is in jail awaiting a hearing to determine whether she will be sent back to prison for violating the terms of a 1998 mail fraud conviction. In the latest allegations against her, prosecutors say that Kolodner asked an unidentified man to kill Renata Ramsburg, a federal probation agent who had tracked and chronicled Kolodner's recent suspected activities.

Kolodner, convicted in November of running a $3 million insurance fraud scheme, is arguing in U.S. District Court in Baltimore that she committed the crimes in "diminished mental capacity" because of prescription medications and a troubled life.

WESTMINSTER -- Take one look at Barry Kolodner and it's clear he doesn't fit the mob-boss image of someone usually associated with contract-murder attempts.The short, slight 30-year-old was in court last week to be sentenced on one count of solicitation to commit murder, a charge to which he pleaded guilty last December.Dressed conservatively in a slightly oversized tweed jacket, a pair of dark khaki pants and slightly worn dock shoes, Kolodner glanced furtively at his attorney, Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. and his mother.

Kolodner, 42, admitted in U.S. District Court inBaltimore that her fascination with wealth reached such an extreme that she once bought 20 pairs of shoes in a day and 50 dress suits in a month."Material things appeared to bring attention and acceptance in a fantasy world," Kolodner said in a written statement to Judge Benson E.

Something didn't seem right when the cook drove up in a Bentley."I thought, 'What kind of a nursing home has a Bentley for a company car?' " said Lizzie Johnson, recalling the months this year when her 76-year-old uncle lived at Shirley Manor assisted-living center in Northwest Baltimore. "That's no ordinary senior citizens home."There's nothing ordinary about the cook, either. She's Deborah S. Kolodner, a convicted fraud artist whose love for Rolls-Royces, diamonds, furs and a $1.5 million South Florida condominium has put her in one mess after another.

William Kolodner pulled his shiny silver-green car up to the pump at the St. Paul Street BP station and committed what some purists would consider Jaguar abuse. The Baltimore lawyer bypassed the $2.87-a-gallon high-test and pumped midgrade Amoco Silver gasoline - with a paltry 89 octane level and a $2.78 price - into a car whose manufacturer recommends Supreme fuel with octane of at least 92. "There's absolutely no difference in how the car operates. The real question is, should I trade further down?"

Kolodner, 47, an attractive redhead alleged to have enticed numerous well-to-do men to act as pawns in an elaborate mortgage-flipping scheme, was accused yesterday of writing two beguiling letters from jail to Robert Wesley Harris.

The half-inch-tall plastic people in the city that Marc Kolodner built seemed to have it all -- a hotel, an airport, a cruise ship, a gas station, a police station, a working drawbridge. But it had been a city without a place of its own.After three years of searching, Kolodner, now 22, finally found that place in the Baltimore Public Works Museum, which agreed this past summer to keep and display his 4-by-8-foot city of Lego plastic interlocking blocks. A dedication ceremony was held yesterday at the museum along the Jones Falls near Pier 6 for the colorful plastic city that took him six years to build.

If defense wins championships, Princeton's women's lacrosse team appears to be in good shape to go for a third straight national title. Junior goalie Sarah Kolodner made 14 saves to lead the No. 1 Tigers to a 9-5 victory over No. 4 Loyola yesterday before about 1,500 fans at newly dedicated Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. "Because the team's a little younger this year," said Princeton coach Chris Sailer, "we joke with Sarah that the defense has helped her out a lot for the last two years, so now, it's her turn to back us up. She really rose to the challenge today."

If the members of Helicon ever tried to sneak through a holiday season without performing their annual Winter Solstice Concert, they'd never hear the end of it. Fans of the Baltimore trio, known for its magical renditions of folk melodies from around the world, still mourn the group's dissolution in the mid-1990s. "There was certainly a lot of disappointment out there," says Ken Kolodner, who plays the hammered dulcimer and fiddle. That's why, in part, Kolodner, 49, and fellow group members Chris Norman and Robin Bullock, both 39, reunite every December for the concert, now in its 18th year.
