Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's policy director said Friday he is resigning from his post at City Hall to take a job in the private sector.  Ryan O'Doherty has served as Rawlings-Blake's chief spokesman for five years, since her time as City Council president. O'Doherty, 35, has accepted a job as the director of external affairs and strategic communications at Mercy Health Services. His last day at City Hall will be July 30. O'Doherty was a key adviser to Rawlings-Blake and helped craft the administration's agenda, including the goal of growing Baltimore by 10,000 families, an increase in the bottle tax to help fund school construction and cuts to the property tax. A fierce defender of the mayor's policies, O'Doherty sometimes clashed with members of the news media and elected officials.

The Baltimore County Council tentatively agreed to $933,000 in cuts to County Executive James T. Smith Jr.'s $1.2 billion budget proposal yesterday, a relatively small reduction by historical standards that members say is proof of a lean budget for tough economic times. The councilmen made no cuts at all to popular areas such as schools, the community colleges, the libraries and recreation and parks. They cut back most grants to cultural institutions such as the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to last year's levels and otherwise made relatively minor cuts to county departments, mostly through adjusting projected salary savings due to turnover.

Niall O'Doherty of the 100 block of Lafayette Ave. was sitting on a ledge on one side of the loader as another worker backed the vehicle onto Hamburg Street about 4 p.m, according to police. When a third worker who was directing traffic for the loader was ready to climb up, the seated man reached out his hand to pull him on. In the process, Enright said, O'Doherty fell under the vehicle's wheels and was crushed.

I hear in Gabriel O'Doherty's voice the faint trace of a brogue his parents brought from Ireland long, long ago. It gives his voice a kind of gentle lilt that soothes and charms. You can understand why young men would open up to him, as if speaking to a kind-hearted uncle, and shed tears on his carpet.This goes back some years, to when we were still burying our dead from Vietnam.O'Doherty, who survived the Korean War, felt special affinity with the boys who returned to the United States in the 1970s as war-fried veterans.

The historian and author of an acclaimed Martin Luther King Jr. trilogy is on the steering committee for Marylanders United to Stop Slots. By his own account, Branch is pretty much "removed from public life." Why weigh in on this issue? "Basically, I would say a lifetime spent studying Martin Luther King and the civil rights era steeps you in what democracy requires, because that's basically what the whole civil rights movement is about.

An e-mail address of a former state Democratic Party worker was used in a discussion about Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley's marriage on a conservative Web site, a spokesman for the site said yesterday. Kristinn Taylor, a spokesman for free republic.com, said Ryan O'Doherty's Democratic Party address was one of at least three used to operate the identity of MD4BUSH, the mysterious Internet poster who appears to have coaxed an aide to Gov.

Dinner with relatives on Thanksgiving used to be so comforting, with all the familiar dishes, family stories and skits by the young ones -- until this year, that is, when some family members will still be gloating about President Bush's re-election while those who supported John F. Kerry are plotting a move to Canada. Thanksgiving dinner is fraught with potential intrafamily disputes as it is -- canned or fresh cranberries? vegan or low-carb stuffing? -- but this year, red and blue differences are now part of the mix. With all those partisans having to share one table, some are viewing Thanksgiving this year as the food equivalent of sleeping with the enemy.

Five months after it appeared to die a quiet death, Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith Jr. has revived his push to get Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos on the county's Revenue Authority. Angelos, a prominent attorney who helped revive downtown Baltimore's west side, is a key component in Smith's vision of a more active Revenue Authority that would encourage commercial revitalization, said Damian O'Doherty, who has recently become Smith's top aide and liaison to the County Council.
