With a tight-knit group of seniors and some talented players behind them, the Severn boys lacrosse team had a good feeling about the potential for a breakthrough season. Until the No. 8 Admirals delve further into their Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference schedule, it remains to be seen just how much success they can get out of 2012. But so far, it's certainly been so good. Friday's game against emerging Mount St. Joseph provided another example. The Admirals were a step ahead in every facet against the No. 12 Gaels, getting a three-goal, one-assist performance from senior midfielder Mark Cohen and playing strong team defense in a 11-7 victory, extending their winning streak to 12 games.

Mark P. Cohen, who as Baltimore's top homicide prosecutor helped take many hundreds of killers off the city's streets, died Sunday of cancer at Stella Maris Hospice. He was 62. The Mount Washington resident, chief of the homicide division in the Baltimore state's attorney's office, battled melanoma for about a decade but had taken a turn for the worse in recent months. State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy said Mr. Cohen tried some of her office's most difficult cases, including those involving the death penalty and those involving police officers.

A young woman sitting against the wall in Baltimore Circuit Judge Ellen M. Heller's courtroom laughed derisively when prosecutor Mark Cohen said the words, "All he had to do was make a 911 call."Cohen was referring to Nathaniel Hurt, on trial in the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old kid named Vernon Holmes in the back one ugly night in October. It is alleged that Hurt fired a .357-caliber Magnum revolver from the fire escape at his house on North Avenue. He wasn't firing a warning shot, the state says; a man doesn't fire a warning shot down at a crowd of kids if his intent is to simply send them running.
