Two men were shot and injured in separate robberies Monday night and early Tuesday morning in Annapolis, though police said both were expected to survive. In the first incident, Brett Shumaker, 32, of Harwood, attempted to fight two men trying to rob him as he walked on a footbridge near the unit block of Silopanna Road and was shot multiple times, police said. The men, one armed with a gun and the other with a knife, approached Shumaker at around 10 p.m. Monday and demanded his belongings, while Shumaker pulled out a knife and tried to fight back.

Q: We have a ceramic "Little Orphan Annie" mug from the 1930s. It is three inches tall and was an Ovaltine premium. Is it worth anything?A: Little Orphan Annie was a comic character created by Harold Gray in 1924. When she debuted on radio, Ovaltine was the sponsor. The mug was just one of the many premiums offered by Ovaltine. "Hakes Guide to Comic Character Collectibles" by Ted Hake lists a mug, circa 1932, similar to yours at $50.Q: I have a Staffordshire figurine of a poodle that was given to my parents as a wedding gift in 1912.

Last week, I got mugged. Or, quasi-mugged. My urge to imbibe thwarted by Baltimore's proscription of Sunday liquor store sales, I'd ended up in the back of Charles Village Pub with a book and a Dale's Pale Ale. After a couple hours of reading and rumination, I paid my tab. Walking the three blocks back from the bar and talking on the phone, I had just entered the alley abutting my apartment when a gun-wielding figure appeared from behind....

AT THE TABLES in DeGroen's Grill on Albemarle Street, the place where the Baltimore Brewing Co. dwells, the members of the Mug Club sit at the dear old copper bar they know so well and raise their glasses high, draining the brewery's last kegs. After 15 years of brewing German-style beers that made men weep for joy, that helped transform scholarly librarians into high-fiving football fans, that encouraged city building inspectors to rub shoulders with professors, doctors and museum docents, the Baltimore Brewing Co. is brewing no more.

Cisneros ordered his official portrait removed from 220 HUD offices from Baltimore to Honolulu last month.The 8-by-10 color photograph depicts Mr. Cisneros in a bureaucrat's navy blue suit in front of the American flag, but a dull facial expression sparked an order to yank the mug shot from the walls of HUD field and administrative offices where he shared the spotlight with a smiling President Clinton.

Baltimore police detectives cannot easily access mug shots from a computerized database run by the state prison system, drawing complaints from city investigators that arrests of potentially dangerous criminals are being hindered.A prison spokesman called the problem a "temporary glitch" that will be fixed in one to two months and allow detectives "to search to their hearts' content." City police, however, remain skeptical."It's a real concern to the Police Department," said Maj. Jeffrey Rosen, head of the Central Records Division, who said the state is a year behind in updating its mug shot equipment.

With country music blaring, honky-tonk decor, and a menu stacked with smokehouse favorites, Cowboys & Rednecks (also known as CNR) is hardly shy about its theme. We half expected the hostess to greet us with a "Yeehaw!" CNR's owner, Federal Hill resident and big-time country music fan Guy Naylor, opened the bar in late 2011, imagining that it would be a fun addition to his neighborhood. Local bar-hoppers agreed; CNR is often packed to overflowing on weekend nights. CNR's success as a bar is uncontested, but its status as a go-to restaurant is less confirmed.

For the past six years, the building at 6228 Sykesvillle Road (Route 32), in Eldersburg, once known as Nathan Henry's Restaurant, has stood empty. But it hasn't been forgotten. The nondenominational Journey Church Community has been planning to turn the site into the Ugly Mug, which organizers describe as a not-for-profit coffee/cafe/concert house for the community, especially young adults. After six years of fundraising, campaigns, setbacks and road blocks, proponents say the goal is still alive - and in fact may be close to reality.

I was jumped last Friday night. Around 11 p.m., while reaching for my keys to enter my apartment building, I was grabbed from behind, hit in the face, thrown to the ground and punched repeatedly a few feet from my door. My teenage assailants surprisingly made no effort to take anything from me and ran off laughing as I gathered my bearings and staggered inside. Though I had a fat lip, a bruised cheek and a pounding headache, my encounter left me with no lasting scars. Instead, my experience put me in a reflective mood.

When I was a youngster, I drank a lot of milk with Ovaltine so I could send away for an Uncle Wiggly mug. I still have the mug. Can you tell me what it's worth?Ovaltine used the Uncle Wiggly mugs as a premium in 1930 and '31.There are two versions. One shows an Ovaltine sign on the house behind Uncle Wiggly. That's worth $40 in mint condition. The mug without the Ovaltine sign is worth $35 in mint condition.The back of a gold and fake ruby pin I own is marked `CoroCraft.` Do you have any information on the company?

Harford Road has long been home to a bevy of colorful bars. But in recent years, gentrification has left its mark on the two-mile stretch from Baltimore's Hamilton/Lauraville neighborhood to Parkville. This mix of newer, high-end watering holes and bizarre hometown bars makes Harford Road a prime destination for a bar crawl, where a group of adventurous drinkers hits up several spots in one night. Since each bar is one stop on a larger trek, the trick is to have a drink, then move on to the next destination.

It was with a profound sense of personal validation that I opened Volume V of the Dictionary of American Regional English  to discover an entry for the term my family back in Kentucky used for the chamber pot: thunder mug .  There are also entries for thunder jar  and thunder jug,  little maps showing regional distribution. And I was also happy to see that what we called a sweat bee  is also known as the hayfield wasp , the ice-cream bee , and other terms.  For scholars of American English, this volume and the series it completes are a hoard of riches, and also a work of heroic proportions for more than four decades.
