Baltimore may have abandoned its "City that Reads" slogan too soon. Federal consumer spending data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that Baltimore-area residents spent an average of $154 annually on books, newspapers, magazines and other pleasure reading - about 45 percent more than the $106 national average. That's just a tiny fraction of area expenditures, but it's consistent with the profile of the wealthy, middle-aged average consumer revealed in the BLS data.

The Washington-area transit system has teamed up with nonprofits in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia to provide comprehensive, individualized training to people with significant disabilities on how to get around using public transportation. The two-year pilot program was launched last week by Metro. It's meant for people who need more than the one-day orientations that Metro now provides. The transit agency has been providing free, one-day orientations on its bus and rail system to individuals and groups for more than five years.

Since their years as star basketball players at St. Frances, Briana Hutchen and Shatyra Hawkes have wanted to give back to the girls growing up the way they did, on the basketball courts of Baltimore City. Hutchen and Hawkes turned their basketball skills into college scholarships - Hutchen at Alabama and Hawkes at Xavier - and they want to make sure other girls know they can do the same thing.. Sunday, they will host the U.S.E. Basketball Foundation Family Reunion, which will bring many former Baltimore-area female players to Baltimore City Community College to play basketball and pass on to younger players their knowledge of what it takes to get to college.

When saying goodbye, weeping can come with the territory. In its own way, the party-starting Baltimore rap duo AK Slaughter knows this painfully well. At a recent cover shoot for their forthcoming and final EP, “It's Not You ... It's Us,” Emily Slaughter and Aran Keating hoped to depict the aftermath of a break-up. They wanted to truly cry for the full effect, but an onion they sliced failed to produce tears. So the two friends improvised. “So then Aran takes the onion juice and puts it against his eyeball,” Slaughter, who described the shoot as “exhausting,” said outside of the Bell Foundry performance space in Station North last week.

Two men accused of stabbing a third in an elevator at the Shot Tower metro station this week were arrested Friday after an informant helped police identify them from surveillance images, the Maryland Transit Administration said. The men, both 25, were apprehended with the victim's property in downtown Baltimore about noon, two hours after the informant came forward with information, said Paul Shepard, a MTA spokesman. Police had first released the surveillance images on Thursday.

Names are not what they seem for the Baltimore rock quintet Vinny Vegas. Start with the band's name: It is not the alter ego of lead singer Scott Siskind, but rather an obscure reference to a professional wrestler from the early '90s. Then there's the title of the group's debut album, November's “The Big White Whale,” whose vinyl release will be celebrated at a Vinny Vegas-headlining show at Metro Gallery on Saturday. Despite cover art that depicts a diver next to a massive whale, Siskind said the title has nothing to do with Herman Melville's novel.

Facing mounting opposition from state and local officials, the Obama administration has dropped the idea of converting a vacant office building in Baltimore into a shelter for immigrant children who have entered the country illegally, officials familiar with the decision said Wednesday. Federal officials concluded that Metro West on North Greene Street, a huge complex on the edge of the city's long-standing Superblock redevelopment effort, was unsuitable to help accommodate the recent surge in unaccompanied children crossing the Southwest border.

Federal officials are eying a large, vacant office building near Lexington Market on Baltimore's west side as a potential shelter for children caught entering the country illegally, an idea that met with resistance from several Maryland lawmakers on Monday. The children, most of whom are from Central America, are part of a surge of immigrants that has overwhelmed holding facilities along the Southwest border in recent weeks and forced the Obama administration into a frantic search to find shelter space elsewhere.
