A girl and a boy, maybe 5 or 6 years old, round the corner, and their eyes widen when they see the cops. "What are you doing?" the girl asks suspiciously. "Just walking around," one of the officers, James Mingle, says. "Why you stopping us?" she continues. "I'm not stopping you," Mingle says. "I'm getting out of your way." The kids walk on, shooting occasional backward glances to be sure. So maybe the only time they see police in their neighborhood is when they're arresting someone.

When the baseball season began, Erika Brannock and her friend Breanna Dickerson made plans to spend a Saturday night this summer attending an Orioles-Yankees game at Camden Yards. Two weeks after they purchased tickets for Saturday's game, those plans and Brannock's life was altered during the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15. Brannock, a 29-year-old preschool teacher from Towson, lost her left leg below the knee and needed multiple surgeries to save her right leg. When Brannock was able to return home from Boston last month - she was the last of the injured to be discharged from the hospital after 50 days - Dickerson asked if she still wanted to go to the game.

Norval Ellingsworth finds himself in two categories that do not often mesh: blind and employed. He's worked at Allfirst Bank for nearly 13 years with the aid of a computer that talks to him. Many others with disabilities - college educated and skilled - are jobless or in dead-end positions, he said. `I had the skills' "Human resources wasn't so sure at first about me," Ellings- worth said. "But it didn't take long to see I could do it, that I had the skills and the intelligence." A new Web site is intended to link more people with disabilities to work by posting their resumes while providing information on training and tax breaks for employers.

For many fans, the Preakness is not just about the horses. It's also about clothes. The Corporate Village - a circle of tents where high-rollers mix and mingle - was the place to see and be seen yesterday. And there was plenty to look at. Hot pink and citrus hues made a strong showing, while black, as usual, was the chic classic. Some folks shopped months in advance to find the perfect ensemble, while others waited for yesterday's weather forecast before assembling their outfits. The overcast skies didn't help with those decisions, yet some ladies figured their hats could double as umbrellas if the skies opened.

For romance writer Suzie Carr, inspiration comes from everyday life. Through her lesbian romance novels, she tackles topics such as adultery, temptation, bullying and coming of age. She says she hopes those themes resonate with her readers and bring awareness to social issues. “Through my books, I feel like I'm touching lives. There's a positive message behind it,” says Carr, who lives in Elkridge. “It's more than just a love story. This literature could be mainstream because it deals with real-life issues.” Carr's first novel, “The Fiche Room” -- which is currently being adapted into a short film -- was published in 2007 by LavenderDoor.com, a website that sells e-books.

What does it take to get a bribery conviction in Maryland? State Sen. Ulysses Currie, who took a quarter-million dollars from a grocery store chain to advocate on its behalf, and who told no one about the arrangement, was just found not guilty on several counts of bribery by a federal jury in Baltimore. Apparently, corrupt public officials need not take paper bags of cash under the table anymore; they can just get their lucre by direct deposit. If this is to become the new standard in Maryland, a lot of lobbyists are about to be out of a job. Why bother hiring them when corporations can simply put lawmakers on the payroll?

The day after U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden, dozens of people flocked to the Pentagon Memorial to honor loved ones, neighbors and perfect strangers who died in the Pentagon attack nearly 10 years ago. They bore flowers and tiny flags and carried themselves, for the most part, like visitors to a cemetery. In contrast to more raucous gatherings in New York and at the White House, there were no whoops or cheers here on two pebble-covered acres on the Pentagon's south side. Mourners left bouquets in pools of water trickling beneath 184 stone benches, each engraved with the name of someone killed when a hijacked plane crashed into the massive building.

The stink of seafood wasn't the only thing hanging over the J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake this year. The recession loomed, too, personified by one Earl De Vincentz . Retired from the Baltimore City Fire Department, now a corrections officer at Eastern Correctional Institution, De Vincentz planted himself at the front gates of the annual Crisfield political fest so he could have a word with the men who would be governor. The 65-year-old got the ear of Martin O'Malley as the Democratic governor and his electric-green entourage strolled in. The guards got a 2 percent pay cut last year, no raise this year and expect to have to take three to five unpaid days off next year, De Vincentz complained to O'Malley.

Pratt Street has a rich history in Baltimore lore. It's old enough that the street has been identified on city maps dating back as far as 1801. But in August of 2011, it will experience something it hasn't seen in its previous 200 years: Cars driving 185 mph. That's the speed that IZOD IndyCar Series officials estimate competitors will be able to reach on the Pratt Street straightaway in the Baltimore Grand Prix, which will make its debut...

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Locals offer them hot tea, bread, boiled chicken, gifts of Scotch, even marriage proposals. Yet commanders of the 101st Airborne Division warn their soldiers again and again to stay alert among the crowds of Iraqis. This is an odd, in-between time for American troops. The large-scale fighting appears to be over, and the division is shifting to what officers call "support and stability operations," but the dangers have not passed. "We're in kind of a transition," said Lt. Col. Ed Palekas, who leads the 3rd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment.

My husband and I have always kept our finances separate. We had both been out on our own for many years before we met, and it just seemed more comfortable that way. Now I'm having second thoughts. He has run up some big credit card debts and isn't saving anything for retirement. We agreed to split our expenses, but he's continually running out of cash and asking me for "loans" that somehow never get paid back. I suspect he's also failing to pay some of his bills on time, but I've been afraid to ask. Any time I mention retirement or other goals, like buying a house, he gets mad and says if I'm worried, I can save more of my own money.

The little girl in the hospital bed put on a brave face. She said "cheese" when a photographer asked to take her picture yesterday. She tucked into a slice of pizza delivered by a nurse. When asked how she felt, she said, "Fine," in that guarded, sing-song voice small children use with adults they don't know. But whenever Talayha Mable, who will be 4 years old on July 4, moved her right leg, she twisted her face and cried out as pain seared the spot where a bullet had torn through her calf in a drive-by shooting Monday.

Here are a few raveled threads plucked from that highly charged evening at the Metropolitan Museum, put on by Vogue's Anna Wintour last week. (And, incidentally, did you know that the editor's rather controversial Chanel dress, described as looking a bit like ram's horns, was called "Storm"?) The big hit of the night, I'm told, was tennis ace Venus Williams in a bronze Carolina Herrera gown, wearing a Fred Leighton diadem upside down like a tennis band in her hair. She is being pronounced the best of the non-Hollywood A list.
