The Ehrlich boys sure love their summer Slurpees. Even the 50-something Ehrlich kid is not averse to indulging on the way home from those hot summer football practices. (Mom does not share our male addiction but usually lets us slide in the interest of family unity.) That the Ehrlich Slurpee bonding experience takes place in Annapolis and not New York City is a good thing, as the Big Apple now deals with the latest assault on individual freedom from Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The successor to the wildly successful Rudy Giuliani is a billionaire Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.

Maryland lawmakers on Monday introduced a bill to restrict the sale of tobacco products in the state to those age 21 and older instead of the current age of 18. If passed, that would make Maryland the strictest state in the nation when it comes to cigarette purchases. A few states have raised the tobacco buying age to 19, but no other state has reached the 21 marker, and only one city has: New York City last year passed a bill restricting the sale of tobacco to age 21; it goes into effect in April.

NEW YORK -- When finalized this spring, the deal was so secret the mayor did not know about it. A group of major financial companies had agreed to pay $5 million to build a new police museum, to be run by New York Police Commissioner Howard Safir's wife in a nonsalaried post. In return, the Police Department brass would shift 200 patrol officers to Wall Street.This agreement -- cash for city police protection -- is only one example of how the stock market boom has changed the balance of power in America's largest city.

Six months after going public, Orion Power Holdings Inc. announced yesterday that its first-quarter earnings soared 82 percent, mostly due to the energy company's significant advances in building power plants across the country. In the three months that ended March 31, Orion, an independent power generating company, posted net income of $15.1 million compared with $8.3 million in the first quarter a year ago, when it was privately held. Earnings per share were 15 cents compared with 22 cents a year ago, a drop attributed to the company issuing 60.2 million more shares after its initial public offering in November.

The launch of Baltimore's bike-sharing program will be delayed until next summer after the hardware and equipment vendor selected by the city filed for bankruptcy, officials said Wednesday. The city is expected to seek new vendors through a bid process as early as June, said Kathy Dominick, a spokeswoman for the Department of Transportation. The city is rewriting its request for proposal, or RFP. The city's program, to be called Charm City Bikeshare, was expected to open this spring with more than 250 bicycles available for short-term rentals at 25 stations.

WITH THE MIGHT of city voters' mandate, Mayor Martin O'Malley made clear yesterday that he won't tinker with a radical crime-fighting plan recommended by his consultants. This is the reality the City Council and others need to take into account as the process for naming the successor to Commissioner Ronald L. Daniel moves ahead. They may argue about the wisdom of the mayor's choice of Edward T. Norris, a former New York City deputy commissioner, to run the Baltimore Police Department. But the 152-page crime-fighting blueprint, in Mr. O'Malley's judgment, is non-negotiable.
