A $1 trillion spending bill passed by Congress late Thursday — averting another shutdown by funding the government through October — directs tens of millions of dollars to the port of Baltimore and will keep airport control towers open across the state. The port funding, about $60 million, consists mostly of appropriations for dredging projects. The bill includes about $21 million for the Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat who helped steer the bill as chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, called the legislation an "investment in the lives and livelihoods of those who depend on clean and open waterways" that will "keep businesses open and keep people working.

Fifi is no shrinking violet. The 68-year-old warplane can't sky like it used to, and getting all the parts going in the morning takes a little more thought and planning. But Fifi - the last B-29 Superfortress still in the air - commands respect, with super-charged engines that growl with authority and menacing gun turrets that appear ready to fend off swarming enemy fighters. The plane did, after all, have more than a bit part in "The Right Stuff," standing in as the mother ship for test pilot Chuck Yeager's first supersonic flight.

Tom Katzenberger calls the Essex Skypark "a blue-collar airport" - a place where the pilots have dirt under their fingernails. "All of us change our own oil," said Katzenberger, who owns a small concrete construction company and flies a 1996 Maule, a four-seat airplane. "All of us fix our own flats. " Katzenberger and other members of the Essex Skypark Association recently learned that the waterfront airport could be lost, and with it an aviation tradition that they say they couldn't afford to continue elsewhere.
