In its short life span (it opened early this summer), the Patterson Park restaurant Three ... has gone through at least one major change. Normally, I would have eaten at a place getting this much buzz sooner, but it seemed only fair to wait, considering that the owners named their restaurant Three ... and then promptly lost one of the three - Jack Starr, the one who was the executive chef as well as an owner. Talk about landing on your feet. The restaurant then hired Peter Livolsi, the chef who opened Pazo in Fells Point.

Dr. Robert W. Gibson, a seminal figure for more than three decades at the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital where he oversaw the desegregation of its facilities, ended its bankruptcy and extended it into the community, died March 8 of heart failure at his Parkton home. He was 89. "Bob was a major leader in American psychiatry and not just at Sheppard Pratt or in Maryland. He devoted his life to Sheppard Pratt for more than 30 years and was really a remarkable leader," said Dr. Steve Sharfstein who succeeded Dr. Gibson in 1992 as president of what is now Sheppard Pratt Health System.

The 25th Street Station Walmart Project is approaching approval, despite calls from members of the affected communities for a major amendment and further discussion over the proposed design and retail mix. It is my understanding that in Baltimore, a design change reducing the retail density of a proposed development does not require such an amendment, but this is about more than the words in our city code. It's about more than what is "required. " This is about respecting the needs, wants and concerns of the communities the project purportedly will serve.

The first hearing of a new General Assembly oversight committee for Maryland's health insurance exchange made clear just how badly dysfunctional it remains four months after its botched launch. Despite millions in additional costs - some of which will be covered under existing, fixed-price contracts, and some of which won't - the software at the core of Maryland's exchange website remains deeply flawed and continues to require extensive manual work-arounds that frustrate consumers and slow the pace of enrollment.

The elections in Iraq tomorrow will probably be crucial, but the Iraqis and the world probably won't know how crucial, or in what way, for a good long while. They could stem Iraq's turn toward civil war, or they could accelerate it - depending not only on the results but also on how the winners conduct public policy once in office. They could lead to a redefining of the American role - but not necessarily in a way that would allow for a graceful exit. It's important to recognize that elections are not in themselves a sign of strength.

There was a time -- not so long ago -- when baseball was largely a game of King of the Hill. Whoever stood tallest on the mound was all but certain to have the best team, and it was a lot easier to stand taller then, because the mound was 5 inches higher than it is today.Now, with offensive production booming and tentative pitchers slowing the game to a crawl, Major League Baseball is close to adopting a rule change that would boost the mound closer to where it was when pitching was pre-eminent.

Teams are changing the way your children's classes are taught and the way airplanes are built.You probably know someone who works on a team instead of in a department. If you're not already working on a team, you probably will be within the next 10 years, according to industry forecasts.What is a team? And why are so many companies taking this route?Teams are a way of structuring the workplace so that people work less as individuals -- putting the wheels on a toy truck, for example -- than as a group -- working with others to put the entire truck together.

FRANCE AND Germany have decided that the best way to create a regional European superpower is to launch an undeclared trade war on the United States.That puts in plain, stark and understandable terms the meaning of a git-GATT-gittle that glazes the eyes when called "the collapse of the Uraguay Round of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade." Here's how the war broke out. At last July's economic summit in Houston, France's Francois Mitterrand and Germany's Helmut Kohl assured President Bush that the talks to ease restrictions on world trade, going on for four years, would succeed.

When John Harbaugh walked off Heinz Field last January after a playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, he never imagined that the Ravens would go through such a dramatic transition period. Since then, the Ravens have fired two offensive assistant coaches, lost another one to the Oakland Raiders, promoted a defensive coordinator, waived three of their best players and lost three more starters through free agency. "No, I wouldn't be honest to say anything other than no, I didn't expect this," Harbaugh said.

Maybe the Orioles should put orange cones and yellow police tape around their entire farm system. It's become quite a construction zone, with bricks falling every day. Don't walk near anyone in player development without wearing a hard hat. The contracts of scouting director Tony DeMacio and director of minor league operations Doc Rodgers won't be renewed after next month. Triple-A manager Tim Leiper and short-season Aberdeen pitching coach Andre Rabouin suffered the same fate. One year after the system showed drastic improvement under Rodgers, it's time for another overhaul.

I am bearing down on 60 years and am a lifelong resident of Maryland. I will add that I have never voted for a Republican gubernatorial candidate. The time might be appropriate for a major sea change in our beleaguered state. I am a bit skeptical about Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, for fear that his election would simply mean more of the same Democratic folly, whose mantra seems to be "why not tax it"? The only inherent difference between the governor and the lieutenant governor is that Mr. Brown was "minding the store" while our absentee governor was traipsing all over the map, assessing the nation's pulse for a new democratic candidate for the United States presidency.

US Lacrosse president and CEO Steve Stenersen confirmed Friday that Maryland Dels. Jon Cardin (D) and Dana Stein (D) have agreed to major modifications to House Bill 1123, which would have required girls players under age 19 to wear headgear. Stenersen noted that the delegates, who co-sponsored the bill, agreed to allow US Lacrosse to provide updated language for the bill that will drastically modify its original intent. Instead of mandating headgear use by youth and high school players , the focus of the bill will change to requiring mandatory sport-specific education, training and certification for youth and high school coaches that will be consistent with US Lacrosse education curricula.

Inside Lacrosse magazine has announced plans for the second annual Powerball Lacrosse Tournament for men's and women's adult club players, with major changes that will benefit a charity and open up competition for college players. The tournament will be held July 12-14 in Atlantic City, N.J., with game action taking place nearby at Richard Stockton College in Galloway, N.J. “From the get-go, Powerball created a buzz with its unprecedented $25,000 cash prize for the winner,” said IL's Powerball director, Dan Flynn.

In her first 100 days on the job, Howard County schools Superintendent Renee Foose has revamped the system's legal services, established an office of accountability and called for revision of a redistricting proposal to shift hundreds of students to new schools, a move that some parents have decried. Foose is steadily imposing her management approach on the 50,000-student system as she attempts to fulfill promises to make it more transparent and accessible - directives spelled out in the entry plan she unveiled as she took over July 1. Perhaps the most controversial move she has made involves the redistricting plan.

Because of the poor performance by the offensive tackles against the Kansas City Chiefs last week, there had been some speculation that the Ravens might choose to start Bryant McKinnie at left tackle over Michael Oher and move Oher to the right side to replace rookie Kelechi Osemele. But that won't happen against the Cowboys on Sunday unless someone is really getting dominated. I agree with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron that it is much too early in the season to start making major changes.

Recently there has been outrage over the revelation that the pensions for retiring members of the Baltimore County Council, after serving in office for 20 years, are $54,000 per year, for life. Outrageous as this may be, when it comes to what is wrong with Baltimore County government, it is just the tip of the iceberg. There is great excitement over the possibility that several Baltimore County Council seats may be changing hands in this year's election. Thinking beyond the pensions issue, it is important now to frame the top issues of governance that citizens should be focused on before next year's elections.
