An attorney disclosed the potential sale this week in a court case involving the property, but did not identify the buyers except to call them a "local investment group. " Two people close to the deal that said the company is Hanover-based Redwood Capital Investments. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the transaction is not final.

It's shortly after 1 p.m. on a Saturday in Druid Hill Park. Several dozen young people, many decked out in trim-fitting athletic gear, gather under a pavilion. A plastic storage bin is stocked with cans of Miller Lite and Bud Light. Two grills are smoking burgers and hot dogs. Justin Timberlake's song "Mirrors" mixes with picnic table chatter as a Frisbee zings back and forth during a game of Polish horseshoes. These people have all volunteered to have a good time. Since last February, Volunteering Untapped has held a volunteering event every month with a nonprofit, immediately followed by drinks and networking.

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings is requesting that a group whose affiliates have challenged the legitimately of thousands of voter registrations, including some in Maryland, turn over documents to demonstrate how it determines which registrations to target. In a letter to Texas-based True the Vote, the Baltimore Democrat argues that the group and its affiliates have been unsuccessful in identifying people who are incorrectly registered.

"The numbers are ugly," said one prominent businessman who, while expressing his support for Kohl, said he will not invest.

When Jeff Shaney and his wife bought their historic home last year, he says, his friends from Towson all asked the same thing. "Why did you move to Dundalk?" The waterfront community in Baltimore County has long suffered skeptics and detractors - it's been derided by some as "Dumb-dalk," and when a survey was conducted three years ago, people in the area described it in terms that were not pretty: Rats. Crime. Filth. "If you've never been here, you may think the town is a dying steel plant - or now, a dead steel plant," said Amy Menzer, executive director of the nonprofit Dundalk Renaissance Corp.

If there is one thing Katie Boltz has mastered in high school, it is how to use every minute of her day efficiently. With five Advanced Placement classes, the Dulaney High School senior doesn't text her friends or watch TV so she can focus on homework - but still only manages three or four hours of sleep some nights. "Originally, I thought I would really like all of these classes," the 17-year-old said, adding that when she is overwhelmed, she questions the decision to take so many demanding classes at one time.

A bipartisan plan to avoid federal spending reductions and tax increases that would hit Maryland especially hard won final approval Tuesday night in the House of Representatives even as outside groups warned that the bill would simply delay difficult decisions for a few months. After a day of wild political gyrations - even by Washington's standards - the House voted 257 to 167 to pass a plan negotiated by Vice President Joe Biden and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell that raises income tax rates on households earning more than $450,000 and postpones $110 billion in spending cuts through the end of February.

Russ Noratel is the first to say that his paranormal investigators aren't anything like the Ghostbusters of movie fame. The Elkridge resident and author of "Ghosts of Ellicott City" wants to make clear that there are no such things as proton packs or ghost-containment units as dreamed up in the popular 1984 film with the musical tagline, "Who you gonna call?" But he also readily acknowledges that there are a lot of skeptics who enjoy poking fun at his Baltimore Society for Paranormal Research, especially around Halloween, when college kids are prone to playing pranks by phoning in false reports of sightings.

If Chaz Bono and Bristol Palin can dance - well then, so can you. Maybe not like a pro, maybe not well enough to make a living at it - it's a rare gift to be able to moonwalk like Michael Jackson or to twirl and shimmy like Stacy Keibler. But dancing is supposed to be fun, not something only the elite can do. Everybody does it, whether at a high school mixer, a cousin's wedding reception or a high-class society ball. Becoming a really good dancer takes serious resolve and tons of hard work.
