Unexpected expenses and shortfalls - $3.8 million in police expenses, $4 million in unpaid tax credits, a $14.4 million gap from inactive speed cameras - left Baltimore officials scrambling in recent months to patch holes in the budget, the city's fiscal chief said Tuesday. Budget Director Andrew Kleine detailed the fixes in the $2.4 billion spending plan at a quarterly briefing before City Council members.

Hubert V. Simmons was a gentle man who threw a nasty knuckleball in Negro Leagues baseball, and for years he dreamed of establishing a museum that could tell a story about the national pastime before it was really national, when black players were barred from the majors. He died two months before a small museum opened for appointments-only viewing in the basement of his church in Lochearn, but friends and family were sure he was there in spirit on Wednesday at the Baltimore County Public Library in Owings Mills for the announcement that the memorabilia collection would soon open there, and play to much bigger crowds.

A federal judge ruled Thursday that an exotic dancer at a nightclub on The Block, Baltimore's strip-club district, worked as an employee, not an independent contractor, and should be paid back wages. Unique S. Butler of Owings Mills, who worked for tips at Norma Jean's from 2007 until August 2012 when she said she was fired, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in February against the club and its owner, PP&G Inc., accusing the club of refusing to pay wages. Butler, who used the stage name Dior, said she worked seven-hour shifts up to seven nights a week and had to pay a $45 fee to the club each day out of tips and an additional $20 if she was late, the complaint said.
