Baltimore police officers assigned to protect Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake racked up about $3,900 in expenses while accompanying the mayor on three business recent trips, according to the city spending board's agenda. The five-member Board of Estimates, of which Rawlings-Blake is a member, is slated to vote Wednesday on reimbursing the officers' expenses. A Rawlings-Blake spokesman declined to explain the need for police escorts to accompany the mayor to other cities, but pointed out that the custom was established by previous administrations.

The city of Baltimore is looking to recruit 100 black men to serve as mentors to male youths in some of its most troubled middle and high schools. The initiative, organized by the Urban Leadership Institute, was partly prompted by the increase in violent incidents and disruptions at many city schools this fall. The goal is to give students role models, said David Miller, chief visionary officer for the Leadership Institute, a consulting firm that designs programs for urban youth. About 90 percent of city students are black.

David Miller walks into the classroom and gets right to it, writing several words on the board that he says "challenge" young males, among them pistol and prison. "Why is the word pistol up here?" Miller asks the boys ages 14 to 17, who attend Eager Street Academy, a school housed in the Baltimore City Detention Center. "If you're a man who's living right, you're sober, responsible, taking care of your commitments and working legally, do you still need a gun? No." Miller doesn't mince words when talking with the boys, who have been charged with offenses including carjacking and attempted murder.

Brandon Whitney straightened his tie, cleared his throat and looked straight into the camera's lens. "You should know how to do a budget, save, and give some away," said Whitney, a 27-year-old graduate student. "You should know when to have a child, and when not to." Behind the camera, Janks Morton murmured, "That's good, that's good." Morton, the director of the documentary Men II Boys, which he began shooting yesterday at Bluford Drew Jemison Science Technology Engineering Math Academy in East Baltimore, was looking for just that kind of advice as he asked dozens of African-American men, one after the other, for shards of wisdom that might improve their collective standing in society.

In the past few years, Ken Nibali has refurbished a Victorian home in Catonsville, spent time house sitting in the Virgin Islands, played lots of golf and spoiled his grandchildren. After 31 years at the Social Security Administration, such a diverse leisure schedule seemed a great transition to a new stage of life. "But after several years of just enjoying that stuff, you say `Daggone it, what next?'" Nibali says. "I don't know if it's just our generation, but when you move out of regular employment -- I don't like the word retirement -- you miss that feeling that you're contributing and doing something meaningful.

Marc Clarke, host of 92Q's Big Phat Morning Show, was having considerably less than a big phat morning. Clarke stood in the foyer of one of the Charles Theatre's several movie houses, wondering if he'd been out of line and gone too far with some comments he had made only moments before. The movie house was packed with scores of boys -- nearly all of them black -- who had been brought to a screening of The Pact, a documentary about three doctors from Newark, N. J. That's just part of the story.
