For a sudden media phenomenon, Orb was remarkably relaxed on the morning of his first full day at Pimlico Tuesday as he gets ready to tackle the second jewel of racing's Triple Crown in Saturday's 138 th running of the Preakness Stakes. “He's got plenty of energy,” Shug McGaughey, Orb's trainer, told a small group of reporters and photographers outside the stakes barn at Pimlico, shortly after Orb had walked in the shed row and received his morning bath. “He's settled in well.” The bay muscular colt's chief attention Tuesday appeared to be focused on the long grassy area that sits just across the path from his stall and runs along the perimeter fence.

The style of fence is called "Barcelona," but some residents of Tuscany-Canterbury say it reminds them more of Berlin. It's the "Gorbachev fence" to the mother of neighbor Fred Chalfant, who often walks his dog past the barrier, which is six-feet tall, topped with spikes and divides West 39th Street down the middle. Last week, Baltimore City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke called it “a Berlin Wall of a fence,” as she demanded justification for the fence's appearance, in a letter to the city's Department of Transportation, which erected the fence in mid-April.

County officials said yesterday they are making plans for a $10 million renovation of the Detention Center on Jennifer Road near Annapolis instead of waiting for the County Council to decide the fate of a new jail.Detention Center supervisor Richard Baker told the Planning Advisory Board that renovation is desperately needed at the overcrowded and deteriorating jail, which was built in 1967 and has been added to several times.The proposed renovation would not expand the jail capacity.Although the jail can hold up to 750 inmates and has been averaging only about 550, prisoners are crowded into dormitories that were designed for far fewer people than they now hold, causing security problems, Mr. Baker said.

Who exactly J.W. Hogg was to Baltimore's Washington Monument may be a question left for the ages. Master craftsman who helped build it? Or vandal who defaced it? Hogg's name, written in block letters with a pencil next to the date 1829, was among dozens of 19th-century signatures and drawings discovered this week by a restoration crew using hand tools to delicately remove loose plaster from the monument's subterranean vaults.
