THE PLANE LEAVES for Phoenix in an hour. I am dressed in comfortable pants and a long, loose blouse, eager to attend my first national biology teacher's conference. My husband will drop me off at the airport on his way to work. I hear evidence of the morning's activities -- the shower, a hair dryer, the soft thud of the refrigerator door closing. The aroma of a pop tart wafts upstairs.''Where's the jeep?'' my husband asks, standing at the south window facing our driveway.''The jeep?''I open the east window overlooking our front yard.

For the second time in her life, Grace Leto will have to bury a child. In 1983, she said, her 18-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident in Baltimore. On Friday, another daughter, Kimberly Leto, 51, was stabbed to death after she happened upon two teenagers attempting to burglarize her home, Baltimore police said. "She was a very vibrant, wonderful woman," Grace Leto, 78, said by phone. "I can't really talk about it. " Baltimore District Judge Rachel E.

Jake Arrieta, who was dealt to the Chicago Cubs today along with reliever Pedro Strop for pitcher Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, was on his way to the Norfolk clubhouse to meet with some his teammates and say goodbye before packing and leaving for Triple-A Iowa, when he returned a phone call. He said he expects to throw a bullpen session at Iowa and make a couple starts there before the Cubs decide whether he'll be coming up to the big leagues. Arrieta was considered an ace of the future and was the Orioles' Opening Day starter in 2012, but he couldn't maintain consistency and was shuttled back and forth from the minors.

Food ***1/2 (3 1/2 stars) Service ***1/2 (3 1/2 stars) Atmosphere *** (3 stars) Before he left, chef/owner Sonny Sweetman had turned Abacrombie into one of Baltimore's premier restaurants. Although it wasn't for everyone (one friend of mine called it "precious") and you could end up spending a small fortune there, I always enjoyed it. So I wasn't happy when I heard the place was being sold and Sweetman was leaving for a cushy job in Austria. It turns out he didn't abandon us completely.

IF BALTIMORE keeps losing population at the current rate of nearly 16,000 people each year, this will be a ghost town by 2040. Of course, that kind of apocalyptic scenario is absurd. But even if the latest U.S. Census Bureau projections were slightly off, this trend is undeniable: Maryland's other jurisdictions are growing, while Baltimore is still shrinking. The continuing slide into oblivion should hit Mayor Martin O'Malley like a cold shower. He won election two years ago pledging the city's turnaround, and laying out plans to make that happen.

Three endangered sea turtles that spent the winter in Baltimore departed Saturday evening, joining a caravan of at least 43 others bound for Florida's warm waters and a return to their natural habitat. The three turtles — Chet, Biff and Two-Bit — were among more than 200 sea turtles to wash ashore on Massachusetts beaches, critically ill with hypothermia, last November and December. When The New England Aquarium's sea turtle hospital reached capacity, rescuers reached out to other facilities up and down the East Coast to find foster homes.

A maritime icon slipped out of Baltimore for the final time Tuesday morning, without speeches or hoopla, brass bands or balloons. Only a small band of well-wishers waved and took pictures as the Navy's 894-foot hospital ship Comfort left Pier 11 in Canton, its home for more than two decades, on its way to a new permanent berth in Norfolk, Va. The national anthem played on tinny speakers and tugboats slowly eased the Comfort into the harbor and...

I'll Have Another, fresh off winning the second leg of the Triple Crown, nipped at anyone who came by Sunday morning. He was more playful than ornery. Someone told trainer Doug O'Neill that the colt's eyelids looked heavy.  "He's always got that look," O'Neill shot back. It's true. I'll Have Another appeared only mildly bothered yesterday after running a mile and three-sixteenths in under two minutes and being herded into a crowded winner's circle. After his connections partied late into the night outside of his barn - except for O'Neill, who went to his hotel room with his wife and kids and ordered room service - I'll Have Another was spry at dawn.

The last man to take a horse to Belmont with a chance to snag the elusive final gem in the Triple Crown has some advice for Doug O'Neill. Stay true to the horse. "I think trainers going around asking other people what they should do, looking for how to handle it, that's stupid," Rick Dutrow, trainer of Big Brown in 2008, said in a phone interview Sunday. "It's got to be about your horse. Whatever anybody else did doesn't matter. You know your horse. " O'Neill, trainer of Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another, has already disregarded common wisdom over the past three weeks.

No more kidding around.There comes a time when a city has only one choice: Bring out the go-go boots and the marching band.That's exactly what Baltimore did yesterday. Baton twirlers and high-steppers jumped and gyrated in front of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in a high-decibel effort to win a $100 million federal grant for an empowerment-zone project.

Free-agent guard Evan Mathis, who visited the Ravens on Thursday and stayed overnight in the Baltimore area, will fly back to Arizona to make his decision, according to multiple reports. Mathis said the Ravens, who lost Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs on Thursday, offered him “a nice deal.” Mathis, viewed as the third-best guard in free agency by most pundits, started 15 games at left guard for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, his only season with the Eagles. Mathis was a third-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers' in 2005 and played for four teams in seven seasons, including the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals.

The route Terrance West took from an overshadowed high school player in Baltimore to college star is not typical of athletes. It's not the fact that West had to spend a year in prep school after finishing at Northwestern High to shore up his academics and gain his eligibility. Nor is it that West, who was named Thursday as the top freshman in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision, had to start near the bottom of the depth chart once he arrived at Towson last January.
