Before I retired as a sergeant from the Baltimore Police Department in 1996 after 23 years of service, I had worked in a variety of staff positions. Given my background, I probably know more than the average Baltimorean about how difficult a job being the police commissioner can be without a competent staff to offload the pressure to comment on every criminal incident occurring in the city. Recent quotes by city Commissioner Anthony Batts tell me he needs a surrogate like the late Dennis Hill - a former journalist who served for 22 years as the director of public information for the police department - to help him vent his spleen about how he feels about violent crime in the city in a much more constructive, less defensive manner, and perhaps tutor him about how to talk extemporaneously.

The Baltimore City Police created a new logo for #ASaferBaltimore social media campaign. In an attempt to be interactive and social media savvy, they asked their Twitter followers what they thought of all the design. Big mistake. "If this were the 80s, I'd say you nailed it," wrote @ TimmyWade94 . Others placed the design in the 1970s or 90s. Several opined that it appeared to be the title sequence of a 90s sitcom, perhaps a sequel to "Perfect Strangers. " Some wondered what the technology the department used to create the logo.

Will Likely bypassed second-semester high school senioritis in favor of a head start on his 2013 college classmates by enrolling at Maryland last month. The transition from Belle Glade, Fla., to College Park has been smooth so far for the four-star cornerback, save for one obvious exception.  “I've been freezing. Nah, I'm just playing,” Likely joked Wednesday after Maryland's annual Signing Day news conference. “I'm adjusting to the cold. It's not that serious. I dress up. My mom calls me every morning, makes sure I'm dressed up. So I've got to abide by those rules, even though I'm gone.” Likely is the Terps' lone high school-aged early enrollee.

Who will start at quarterback for the Terps on Saturday against Boston College? We can only make educated guesses. Maryland is not making any quarterbacks available to the media this week - which is unusual for the program. It happens sometimes that requested players aren't available because they're in class or studying.  Maryland said that's the case now - that Devin Burns and Caleb Rowe had class on Tuesday and study hall today. But it's clear there is an abundance of caution about the information being released this week.
