When Harford County Executive David R. Craig decided to throw a bash for his volunteers after a successful campaign, he chose Macgregor's Restaurant and Tavern, the two-story seafood restaurant where every table offers a view of Chesapeake Bay headwaters. The restaurant, part of the revitalization of Havre de Grace's historic downtown district, is where locals go to socialize and listen to live music. It also might be violating tax laws, according to federal agents. The owner, believing that he was speaking to a potential buyer of the business this year, is alleged to have told an undercover investigator that he had skimmed proceeds to avoid paying taxes, according to an affidavit filed in federal court by investigators seeking a search warrant.

The coming of the Chinese New Year in Baltimore was announced this year by a tattered lion dancing in what was once known as Baltimore's Chinatown. The old lion's head - made of papier-mache and now held together by tape - looked much like its surroundings: faded colors, frayed edges with a general appearance of deterioration. "Chinatown isn't what it used to be," explained the lion's owner Arthur Lee after 10 minutes of dancing in front of a small crowd, which consisted mostly of bewildered white parishioners from an Episcopal church.

Neverdon in the shooting death of one of their own.Protesters filled the 98-degree air with chants as they marched in front of Courthouse East, where a jury last week acquitted Mr. Neverdon of the 1993 slaying of Joel J. Lee, a 21-year-old Towson State University student.The Korean marchers -- and the sprinkling of African-Americans and whites who joined them -- disagreed with the jury's verdict.

The commencement ceremony yesterday at St. John's College in Annapolis was an apt display of a school that prides itself on individuality and freedom through learning. United by their years at a liberal arts school focused on a literary canon, the 128 graduates wore the traditional black gowns and awkward mortarboards. But their very different backgrounds and future paths were evident. Baltimorean Caroline Barry's purple-stockinged legs poked out from under her gown as she walked in the procession across the school's front lawn.

A man hangs from a rope connected to the beam of a barn, his feet smashing through a wooden crate so he looks like he's cut off at the knees. His wife explains that when he was angered or annoyed, he would go to that spot, get up on a bucket, put a noose around his neck and threaten suicide. On the fatal day, she placed the bucket elsewhere, so he grabbed the crate. Is this a picture of accidental death, as she contends? Or is it suicide — or murder? This scene doesn't belong to a forensic TV series like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

The Howard County Conservancy will hold its Fall Festival from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Groundbreaking for the historic Montjoy Barn, with County Executive James N. Robey, local dignitaries and members of the Dawson Lee family - former owners of Montjoy - will kick off the festival. The conservancy had the barn disassembled in 2003 and began repairs on the building, which dates from the late 18th century and is the only one of its kind in Maryland. After being reassembled, the barn will be used as part of the conservancy's education programs.
