In my last Baltimore Sun op-ed column , I noted that Baltimore's mayors often have their eye on anything but being the mayor of Baltimore. Obviously, the column struck a nerve with the current Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. In her response , Rawlings-Blake did nothing to counter my claims that she is more focused on her job as Secretary of the Democratic National Committee than she is with being Mayor of Baltimore. Almost as if to prove my point about how her eye is off the ball, I refer you to Sunday's episode of Meet the Press , in which the mayor was one of the guests on the political panel.

In Houston, Donald Treshman made his name as an anti-abortion militant by organizing invasions of medical offices, staging blockades of abortion clinics and rummaging through trash bins outside women's medical centers in a search for patients' names.Now he's operating his anti-abortion organization Rescue America from a small rented house in Northeast Baltimore, still devoted to the tactics that he says helped slow what he calls a "holocaust at killing sites" in Houston."We've done the most damage to the abortion industry," said Mr. Treshman, whose group was among those found liable in Houston last year for more than $1 million in damages.

Sitting across from the suspect in a small interrogation room, the Baltimore detective moved his chair forward. He detailed the evidence already being arrayed for prosecution, then made his final appeal to Korey Mable, a 20-year-old whom he'd been building a rapport with since the slaying.

"Have I ever got a house for you!" The call came a few months ago from Matt Knoepfle, co-owner with his brother, Mike Knoepfle, of the construction company Building Character LLC. That remark is always an invitation to be amazed at a challenging project that has come to fruition. The brothers are in the business of buying up Baltimore's old and crumbling properties (often in the most sought-after downtown neighborhoods) and adaptively reusing them. This particular property, the subject of Matt Knoepfle's call, was the conversion of a late 19th-century carriage repair shop in Federal Hill into a single-family home on two levels, with over 3,000 square feet of living space.

State corrections secretary Gary D. Maynard ordered polygraph tests Friday of top administrators and "integrity reviews" of every employee at the Baltimore City Detention Center in an effort to root out corruption at the jail. Maynard has moved his office to the facility from Towson to oversee a review of leadership, staff and operations amid allegations that the Black Guerrilla Family gang developed broad power inside the jail, a spokesman said. More than two dozen inmates and correctional officers in the city jail are charged in a scheme that officials say involved the smuggling of drugs and other contraband, including cellphones, into the facility.

Selling a house is rarely easy and quick, but the transaction for the three-story end-of-group brick rowhouse at 200 Warren Ave.e in Federal Hill was just that. The property listed and sold simultaneously, closing for $950,000 after being offered at $995,000. Little wonder. The home was built just five years ago in the same architectural style and detail as the older homes around it. Additionally, it is within walking distance to the Inner Harbor and shops and restaurants on Light and Charles streets.

The decision marks the second time in three years that Washington College officials have moved the event, which was a staple of commencement on the school's Chestertown campus for the competition's first 43 years. The event was so successful in New York the past two years that chapters of the college's alumni association around the country put in bids to host future announcements, Washington College President Mitchell Reiss said.

Hey, everybody -- give a warm welcome to Yvonne Wenger , a new Baltimore Sun reporter who will be joining me here to blog about (appropriately enough) newcomer issues. She'll take us along as she looks for a place to settle, gets to know the city and navigates the system (MVA registration, anyone?). We hope her experiences will help other newbies and give natives a new way to look at things we've seen a thousand times before.
