Baltimore's next police commissioner is walking through a west-side neighborhood with some of the community's most engaged residents, but that's not enough for Anthony W. Batts. He wants to talk to a teacher sipping coffee on her porch. He jogs across the street to greet an older woman standing on her front lawn. "Thank you for being involved," Batts tells the group giving him a tour of Bridgeview/Greenlawn. The charm offensive is meant to convince Baltimoreans that a law enforcement career spent on the West Coast has prepared him to police one of the most dangerous cities in the East.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has selected former Oakland, Calif., Police Chief Anthony Batts as Baltimore's next police commissioner, bringing in a leader who has been hailed as an innovator but who struggled to push his agenda at his last job. Batts, 52, spent nearly 30 years with the Long Beach, Calif., Police Department - including seven as chief - before taking over the Oakland force in 2009. He resigned in October 2011 after butting heads with the mayor and City Council. He did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Good news for fans of the classic Queen Mary. Once one of the grandest and largest of ocean liners to cross the Atlantic, the former Cunard liner found a home in Long Beach, Calif., where it has served as both a tourist attraction and hotel. The ship needs $32 million in repairs, and while the city of Long Beach, owners of the liner, wanted to keep it going, its operator wanted to move it to Tokyo, where Japanese businessmen promised $40 million in renovations and $5 million a year to Long Beach for each year it was in Japan.

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Preliminary results from a private autopsy show that football coach George Allen died from a heart spasm brought on by arrhythmia, and that his death was not connected to an ice-water dousing he received Nov. 17 after his Long Beach State team defeated Nevada-Las Vegas to clinch a winning season.Allen, winner of three NFL Coach of the Year awards who revitalized the floundering Long Beach State football program during the 1990 season, died unexpectedly at his home Monday at the age of 72."

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- If his killers had known of his anger at the system, or that he shared their outrage at the Rodney King verdict, maybe, just maybe, Matt Haines of Long Beach might not have been murdered when the rioting in that city turned its streets into battlefields.But the white 32-year-old mechanic never had a chance to talk with his murderers. Or to tell them where he was headed -- to the home of a black friend who could not start her van.Of all the murders that marked last week's riots, none may have been as ironic as that of Mr. Haines, who was gunned down after he was stopped by a mob of black men and teen-agers as he and his nephew, Scott Coleman, 26, rode Mr. Haines' motorcycle to the friend's apartment in Long Beach.

I guess we should be used to the ongoing incompetence and mismanagement that is Baltimore City, but it certainly is a depressing spectacle to watch our city "leaders" stumble from one screw-up to the next. I was thrilled when we finally got a first-class race event (for Americans, anyway) with the Baltimore Grand Prix, and I was looking forward to a long run as a successful race venue with other famous racing venues like Long Beach and Montreal. But leave it to the incompetent half-wits down at City Hall to pull the plug just when the ball finally started rolling ("City moves to replace Grand Prix of Baltimore," Sept.

It's the first day of summer, so a long beach weekend must surely be in sight. The sun, sand and sea are a volatile mix - so it's important to keep safety in mind for the season. To kick things off, I asked Ocean City Beach Patrol Captain Butch Arbin (think chief of police, but for the beach) to pass along some beach safety tips. Arbin, who has been a part of the beach patrol for 40 years, said there are precautions you can take - things that could affect people's lives. So head out for summer vacation and make sure you keep these five safety tips in mind when you visit Ocean City: 1. Stay close to the lifeguards.

Why is it that The Baltimore Sun is so negative about the Baltimore Grand Prix ("Worse and worse," May 9)? Why is it that The Sun's sports pages rarely include any articles about IndyCar races leading up to the Baltimore Grand Prix? Why would they want to snuff out an event that puts Baltimore in such a positive light? As quoted in The Sun as recently as May 10th, Baltimore is considered a "hell hole" by many outside of the city. So why is The Sun so negative about an event that puts beautiful views of Baltimore on TV for so many to see?

Wizards Jamison's hot 2nd half gives Washington winning streak Antawn Jamison scored 21 of his 28 points after halftime, Caron Butler made two big baskets down the stretch and the Washington Wizards put together a rare winning streak Monday with a 97-92 victory over the visiting Portland Trail Blazers. Jamison was 3-for-10 from the field at halftime, but he shot 7-for-11 in the second half in a game that was close throughout. The victory gave the Wizards two wins in a row - only the fourth time they've accomplished that in a distressing season that includes last week's guilty plea to a felony gun charge by three-time All-Star Gilbert Arenas.
