I COULDN'T find your picture in the paper last week. What happened?" my friend asked. Summoning all the dignity I could, I explained that to allow all of Baltimore to "wake up to a better newspaper" certain changes were made to the Arundel Community News section."I get it. The Neighbors correspondents' pictures were cut to make room for an enlarged color photo of Dan Rodricks' torso," she said.Silently, I mulled this unpleasant possibility."Don't take it so hard. They cut Ann Landers' photo, too," she continued.

Bryan Robinson, who has been there before, wants to show his new Cincinnati Bengals teammates how to make the playoffs this season. "If I can just share some of my knowledge, it would be that playing defense is an attitude," the ninth-year veteran said. "It's wanting to stop that other team, not panicking when you're in certain situations, but overcoming those situations and learning from them." Robinson, 31, signed a three-year, $6 million free-agent contract with the Bengals in March as a run-stuffing tackle who could push the defense to a new level.

In Baltimore County Officials confident efforts will minimize any Y2K problems TOWSON -- The county has hired 13 contractors and 10 consultants and spent $9 million to minimize trouble from the Y2K bug, which could disrupt computers in 2000. Officials released a report yesterday on efforts to deal with the millennium bug. Most computer systems use two digits to keep track of the calendar year and experts say that without modifications, many computers will read 2000 as "00" and malfunction when the New Year begins.

Mike Sawyer never went anywhere. The Loyola senior attackman may have blended into the background because of the development of junior attackman Justin Ward (team-leading 28 assists and 54 points) and the play of the team's defense, but aside from sitting out two games due to an undisclosed injury, he toiled away. But Sawyer, a 2012 Tewaaraton Award finalist and a nominee again this year, picked an opportune to re-establish himself on the national scene. His three goals powered the No. 7 Greyhounds to an 8-4 victory over No. 13 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore Saturday.

Every weekday morning, at about the same hour that dozens of young teachers are finishing their coffee and heading off to classrooms, construction workers arrive for the day at the hillside campus where the educators live. The construction workers are putting the finishing touches on the sprawling Union Mill, a 19th-century loft building once occupied by a textile company and then, for many years, by a firm that made miniature toys for Baltimore's beloved Christmas gardens. Located along the banks of the Jones Falls in Hampden, the once-dormant industrial address has been transformed over the last year into a self-contained, $20 million beehive of residences, offices and meeting rooms that also includes a gym and a small restaurant.

Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley released his congressional redistricting plan Saturday evening, hours after a handful of African-American lawmakers walked out of a Legislative Black Caucus meeting and prevented the group from taking an official position on an earlier draft.

Chris Van Hollen had requested.
