Maryland Court bars officials in gay marriage case A group of elected officials opposed to same-sex marriage cannot become defendants in the hot-button lawsuit filed by nine couples who want the state's ban on gay marriage erased, Maryland's highest court ruled yesterday. The decision, issued by the Maryland Court of Appeals a day after it heard arguments and with no opinion detailing its reasoning, returns the lawsuit to Baltimore City Circuit Court, where the same-sex couples sued five court clerks last July who refused them marriage licenses.

Do you have the recession blues? Try going green for the weekend. St. Patrick's Day green. A host of local venues and groups are holding events from parades to races to other forms of merrymaking. The biggest event of the season is the Baltimore St. Patrick's Day Parade. In its 53rd year, it starts at the Washington Monument on Charles Street at 2 p.m. Sunday. "Few know that Baltimore was the second-largest port of entry for Irish immigration - second only to New York," said Chris Gummer, who plays in the Fire Brigade Pipes and Drums of Greater Baltimore and has marched in the parade for 12 years.

Once a year, on the day of Baltimore's St. Patrick's Day parade, Ann Mooney doesn't want to be known as Ann Mooney. She is Ann Donohoe Mooney - adding her maiden name as a declaration of her Irish heritage on her father's side. Her loyalty to yesterday's parade was declaration enough. Every year, Mooney comes to the same spot on Charles Street between Centre and Hamilton streets with her friend, Kitt Rogers, and enough children to fill a classroom. Mooney remembers when it was just her and her husband (and their puppy, Guinness)

NEW ORLEANS -- The Decatur Street St. Patrick's Day parade -- the first of this month's many Irish festivities in New Orleans -- took place last Friday, and the celebration continues with only one distant, discordant note: "I don't go along with this holier-than-thou stuff," said parade organizer Jim Monaghan. "Sexual orientation doesn't matter to us."After watching on TV this week as John "Whacko" Hurley, president of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, defended a decision to cancel the St. Patrick's Day parade in Boston rather than let a gay group march, Mr. Monaghan said, "I think it's sad Mr. Hurley doesn't realize these people are somebody's children."

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., On the morning of the 49th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, clouds blocked the sun. A chill permeated the air. It was, in a word, bleak. But just before the clock struck 2 p.m., when the sousaphones finished lining up along Centre Street, mercurial March came through with blue skies and sunshine. Though temperatures still hovered in the low 40s, the sun stuck around for most of the parade. It was a stroke of luck to those bundled up in green on the sidelines.

As the years pass and the crowds grow, some things about Baltimore's St. Patrick's Day Parade seem to have become immutable, as if required by city ordinance: Scottish pipers always outnumber Irish pipers. Every marching band plays "Danny Boy" at least once. The weather is usually as gray and blustery as a gale blowing in from the Irish Sea. Politicians get more cheers when they have Irish names. And Mike MacIntyre's fluffy dog Seamus, an Irish soft-coated wheaten terrier, is always dyed green, so a lot of people take his picture.

On the corner of downtown Baltimore's Pleasant and Charles streets, not far from their car stocked with coolers of beer and other goodies, not far from Mick O'Shea's pub where proprietor Michael O'Shea offers running commentary -- this is where you'll find Linda and Paul Aires during every St. Patrick's Day parade. They've been doing this for 30 years or so, they figure. So despite a little rain -- OK, a lot of rain -- the Aireses were back at their favorite spot yesterday, watching the bagpipes and drum corps, the cloggers and the step dancers make their way through the city during the 46th annual parade.

`Tchotchkes!' at Jewish Museum They're knick-knacks and mementos that adorn homes, offices and cars, and yet they're much more than that. When "Tchotchkes! Treasures of the Family Museum" opens Sunday at the Jewish Museum of Maryland, 15 Lloyd St., visitors to the exhibit will discover that seemingly trivial collectibles not only have important personal meaning but also can reflect ethnic identity. On view through Sept. 24, the exhibit includes almost 1,000 colorful items, ranging from Israeli olive wood camels and faux Jewish-themed Macca Beans to Ten Commandments salt and pepper shakers and Jerusalem snow globes.
