ATLANTA -- In 1996, an Ohio friend of Richard Lollar and Jacinth "Shorty" Baker was gunned down a half-mile from the Georgia Capitol. But the slaying of Akron resident Donnie Cantrell, 24, didn't stop Lollar and Baker from leaving Akron for Atlanta a year later seeking better jobs, a better education and a better life, said friends who knew the two men. Some of Lollar's friends told him, "Oh, you can really live in Atlanta," remembered Lollar's grandmother,...

Fourth in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. Charles Lollar was at it again last week, the only Republican on stage with the three Democrats running for governor, wooing a crowd largely unable to cast a vote in the fast-approaching GOP primary. His Republican rivals skipped the event at a Silver Spring church, but as he has done throughout the campaign, Lollar focused on charming voters in a Democratic stronghold. The ordained preacher and former tea party activist spreads a spirited message about rising above partisanship.

ATLANTA - A medical examiner testified yesterday that two men killed in a post-Super Bowl street fight here died within minutes of being stabbed in the heart, but said the injuries were probably not caused by a knife found at the scene. Fulton County medical examiner and forensic pathologist John Parker, testifying on the day after football star Ray Lewis officially left the case, showed jurors grisly photographs taken during his autopsies. He said Jacinth Baker, 21, and Richard Lollar, 24, both of Decatur, Ga., suffered a number of stabs and cuts in a brawl, which broke out at about 4 a.m. on Jan. 31. Relatives of the victims bolted from the courtroom in tears at one point during Parker's testimony.

Charles Lollar, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor, says he wants to audit the state's tax laws and force state agency heads to "justify every penny they intend to spend. " The Charles County businessman told about a dozen attendees at a Baltimore Sun Newsmaker Forum on Tuesday evening that he would phase out Maryland's income tax over five years to make the state friendlier to taxpayers and businesses. Lollar, who is from Washington state, said he got interested in Maryland politics when he was working as a senior executive for a Prince George's County business and realized a competitor in Richmond, Va., was turning higher profits.

ATLANTA - Bruce Harvey, the pony-tailed and tattooed showboat who serves as defense attorney for one of Ray Lewis's co-defendants, was about to wrap up his cross-examination of Evelyn Sparks, the young and smartly dressed Chicago woman who was in Lewis's rented limousine the morning of the Buckhead murders. In fact, Harvey, who resembles the actor Stanley Tucci, had just one more question for Sparks: "My wife wants to know what kind of shoes you're wearing." Immediately four things happened - some spectators in the courtroom laughed, a couple of jurors smiled, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard stood to object to the flippant question, and four women seated just behind him grimaced and gasped with disgust.

The double murder for which Ravens star Ray Lewis has been charged began with a random, profanity-laced encounter between Lewis' party and two men who thought they had missed their ride home, according to prosecutors. In their most detailed explanation yet of what they think happened on the morning of the slayings, prosecutors in Atlanta yesterday filed in court a two-page synopsis in support of a motion on evidence. The Jan. 31 incident began as Jeffrey Gwen and Chris Shinholster, two visitors from Akron, Ohio, walked down a street at 4 a.m. in Buckhead, Atlanta's upscale nightclub district, the prosecutor's account says.

RAY LEWIS - Baltimore Ravens linebacker to Charm City's television stations, but "former murder suspect" to Atlanta's - stood in front of cameras and microphones Friday afternoon to let the world know he's an angry man. "Yes, I'm angry at [Fulton County] District Attorney Paul Howard," Lewis said at the news conference at the Ravens' Owings Mills training complex. "Because from Day One, I tried to speak to him and tell him that I was an innocent man." Lewis didn't say so explicitly, but he implied that he would have stood a better chance of getting a dead dog to roll over than of getting Howard to see reason.

Solving a mystery that has lingered since the Jan. 31 double stabbing in Atlanta, the Decatur, Ga., man told police a few weeks ago that he fired the bullets found in the side of Lewis' rented limousine, according to sources familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The identity of Marlin Burros, 33, was disclosed for the first time to the defense teams in an exchange of evidence this week, sources said.

Charles Lollar, a Republican running for governor, will field questions for an hour Tuesday night during the latest Baltimore Sun Newsmaker Forum. The event is the latest in a series of in-depth conversations with candidates competing to succeed term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley.  The free forum begins at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Lollar's campaign for the Republican nomination has drawn attention for his pledge to eliminate the state's income tax. He also backs repeal of Maryland's new gun regulations and says that while he personally disagrees with same-sex marriage, he would uphold the state's new law if elected governor.

I was disappointed to learn that The Baltimore Sun omitted one of the most significant Republican gubernatorial teams in the recent editorial about the sparring between Attorney General Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown ( "Back seat bickering," April 23). Republican candidate Charles Lollar and his running mate Kenneth Timmerman offer a refreshing choice for all Maryland voters, and their candidacy should be given equal attention in any review of the primary contests. Unfortunately, The Sun's editorial board has either been distracted by the noisy infighting of the predominant party's contenders or purposefully chose to ignore Mr. Lollar, an experienced businessman and former Marine who has crafted a realistic and workable plan to eliminate wasteful and fraudulent spending that will increase economic viability and turn around the exit of businesses and revenue that have resulted in our current situation.

Mizeur of Montgomery County, who received a boost last year when she came in second to Brown in a straw poll before she had even announced her candidacy, came in third this year with 50 votes.

The State Board of Elections ruled Thursday that Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar is ineligible for public financing because he missed the legal deadline to apply. The board voted unanimously to deny the waiver request by Lollar, a Charles County business executive. Jared Demarinis, executive director of candidacy and campaign finance, told the board that Lollar missed the Feb. 25 to apply because his campaign had forgotten that was the deadline for applying for public financing as well as for filing candidacy papers.

Six weeks before a scheduled civil trial was to begin, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis reached a financial settlement Thursday with the daughter of one of two men killed in a fight in Atlanta after the January 2000 Super Bowl. Richard Lollar, 24, a barber who was stabbed to death outside a nightclub in the Buckhead section of the city, left behind a fiancee, Kellye Smith, who gave birth to their daughter about a month later. Attorneys filed suit in August 2001 on her behalf against Lewis and four others in federal court in Atlanta.

Recently, Republican candidate for governor Charles Lollar gave an interview to the Washington Post in which he touted his idea to eliminate Maryland's income tax. Mr. Lollar, however, has not issued a detailed plan explaining how he would offset the revenue generated by the state's income tax, which represents over half of all the general fund revenue taken by the state.  Mr. Lollar simply states that he " is confident that the loss in revenue can be offset by the economic impact of recruiting more businesses to the state.
