The monthly progress report on the government's Making Home Affordable modification program shows that mortgage servicers had started 759,058 trial periods with consumers nationally by the end of November. More than 697,000 of them were considered active trial modifications and 31,382 were permanent loan adjustments.

In his enthusiasm on becoming mayor eight years ago, Kurt L. Schmoke cautioned against thinking of him as a permanent mayor. Two terms should be enough. He had other things to accomplish, more worlds to conquer.But game plans change in mid-game. Never mind what Mr. Schmoke originally thought he could achieve for the city and its people. This time, he wanted to go on being mayor for the sake of being mayor because that is what he does.Mr. Schmoke is vindicated.Incumbent mayors normally win, often against mere token opposition.

The group battling with Carroll County commissioners over Christian prayers at their meetings asked a judge Tuesday to order a "permanent injunction" on the practice, which they say alienates some community members. "Public officials are not in the business of offering Christian prayers," said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, a plaintiff in the case. He called the invocations "unconstitutional. " With the latest filing by the plaintiffs for a summary judgment, both sides are now asking the judge to make a final ruling on the case rather than holding a trial.

On Oct. 20, 1761, Presbyterians of northern Harford County requested that a minister be sent to the area of Upper Node Forest near the head of Winters Run. Although they were visited periodically by ministers from Lower Cross Roads, now known as Churchville, a permanent pastor was needed to lead the growing population that had been meeting there. By 1769, Bethel Church had been established in a frame building that replaced an earlier log structure. The Rev. John Clark was installed as pastor for the congregation of 91 members, who pledged to support the church with annual donations.

This spring, Robert Ayala will celebrate his first anniversary at a job he enjoys: working as a paralegal for a mutual fund company. Before he started there, he never thought he'd be so lucky -- he spent six months looking for permanent work after being laid off.One of his strategies: tapping into the growing market for temporary work. Increasingly, temp jobs turn into full-time ones as employers decide to hire candidates after trying them out first. Even if that doesn't happen, you may come away with contacts and references.

Dozens of homeless men, women and children must be moved by the end of the month, when that shelter in Greenmount West is scheduled to close.

WASHINGTON - Congressional Republicans signaled yesterday that they are unwilling to rubber-stamp the administration's push to make permanent some controversial sections of the Patriot Act. The GOP lawmakers are considering at least some modifications on the authority of government agencies in charge of preventing future terror attacks. Sixteen provisions of the Patriot Act, passed hastily in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to expand the government's investigative powers, are set to expire at the end of the year.

The new memorial and museum commemorating the worst attack on the continental United States in history stands starkly as remembrance of that morning in lower Manhattan nearly 13 years ago when terrorism rained down on the Twin Towers from those two hijacked jetliners. The complex at Ground Zero of that enormous tragedy recalls and honors the 3,000 Americans and others who perished, as well as the service of the thousands of selfless firefighters, police and other first responders who valiantly raced to rescue them at peril to their own lives.

Pop-up shops - businesses that open temporarily to present new concepts before hopefully graduating to a permanent location - make sense, especially in Baltimore. We can be a capricious group to impress, so a business that chooses to refine its execution on a small scale, rather than commit to a formidable lease too soon, is acting wisely. Opened by Phil Han of Dooby's last summer, the Hatch is a business incubator located in the lower-level space of the Park Plaza in Mount Vernon.

The NAACP will lay off 7 percent of its national staff as it continues to search for a permanent leader, a decision the civil rights organization says is necessary because of financial concerns. "Like many nonprofits in transition during a difficult economic climate, the NAACP has taken proactive steps to improve [its] financial stability moving forward," said Derek Turner, an organization spokesman, in a statement Friday afternoon. Turner did not respond to questions about how many people would lose their jobs, what roles would be cut or how many of them would be in Baltimore, where the organization has its headquarters.

Timonium-based Smyth Jewelers erected the billboard off I-83 North capturing that magic moment when Mr. Boh, on one knee, proposed to the hair-ribboned Miss Utz with a ring from Smyth, "Where Baltimore gets engaged. "  The billboard has been hanging in the same spot since 2007, clearly visible to drivers heading north on the Jones Falls Expressway.

For each of the first three games of the season, No. 3 Johns Hopkins sent out the same starting midfield. That formula changed in Saturday's 15-9 victory over then-No. 6 Princeton. Rather than sending junior Bronson Kelly to join senior Rob Guida and sophomore Connor Reed on the first line, the Blue Jays (4-0) opted to have sophomore Holden Cattoni team with Guida and Reed. The trio of Guida, Reed and Cattoni is not an unfamiliar grouping, according to coach Dave Pietramala. “In games up until the Princeton game, we've mixed and matched,” he said Wednesday.

On Sept. 12, 2001 senior managers and technical experts crammed into the narrow and stuffy conference room of the National Security Agency's Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) director. Each was trying to make sense of what had just happened the previous morning when two jets slammed into the World Trade Center in New York. The obvious questions were: Who had done this? How could we lift the spirits of the demoralized counterterrorism division? And more importantly, how could we find and track the people responsible for this attack?

PHOENIX -- The NFL made instant replay a permanent rule yesterday at the league's owners meetings. There were two years remaining on the latest extension to use instant replay, but the owners voted 30-2 to make it a permanent fixture. The Arizona Cardinals and the Cincinnati Bengals were the only teams who voted against it. "We couldn't go backward," Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said. "We have always been in favor of instant replay as a team and continue to do so. Instant replay solves more problems than it creates."

Last week was the deadline to apply for the superintendent's position, and Perkins told the Sun she did not enter her name for the job. Perkins became interim superintendent in August when former superintendent Kevin Maxwell left to assume a similar role in Prince George's County.
