More than two dozen West Baltimore homeowners are suing the state of Maryland to block the planned Red Line transit project from tunneling beneath their block, contending that they were inappropriately left out of the planning process. They seek more than $22 million in damages for lost property value and emotional distress. "Right now, they've lost so much of the value of their homes," said Lewyn Scott Garrett, one of three attorneys representing the 25 homeowners in the 300 block of N. Fremont Ave. in the city's Poppleton neighborhood.

The decades-long decline in lead-poisoned children in Maryland has essentially stalled, but state officials said Thursday they are taking steps in the coming months to address gaps in the marathon effort to eliminate the environmental health threat. Statewide, 2,622 youngsters up to age 6 were found to have harmful levels of lead in their blood last year, according to an annual report just released by the Maryland Department of the Environment. That's down 4 percent from 2012, though the number of children with seriously elevated lead levels grew slightly, from 364 to 371. Exposure to even minute amounts of lead can harm still-developing brains and nervous systems of young children, leading to learning and behavioral problems.

If you think the Ravens are being coy about their running back situation, Lorenzo Taliaferro wants to let you in on a little secret. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak doesn't let the players know in advance how he'll divvy up the carries on game day, either. "He doesn't really tell us who's going to go in during the week," said Taliaferro, the Ravens' rookie running back. "[It's] … whoever they call and put in. We'll all step out there and get the job done. " There remains a shroud of mystery about the Ravens' running game as they face the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium.

On Towson's first play from scrimmage last week against North Carolina Central, a 9-yard reception by fullback Dreon Johnson was nullified by an illegal block penalty on senior wide receiver Spencer Wilkins. Wilkins promptly got an earful from coach Rob Ambrose, but rather than take offense, the Ellicott City resident and Mount Hebron graduate found it reassuring. "Honestly, I would take more offense if the coaches weren't yelling at me, because I would feel like they don't care," Wilkins said after a practice this week.
