For most of the Ravens, today's minicamp signifies the unofficial start of the 2000 season. For Anthony Poindexter, it marks the start of a celebration. Poindexter, the Ravens' last pick of the 1999 draft, couldn't walk that well, much less run, at last year's minicamp, coping with the effects of tearing three of his four ligaments in his left knee midway through his senior season in college. He watched his teammates practice while rehabilitating his injury as well as his outlook, coming to grips that his rookie season basically would be lost.

In a surprise announcement, Christian H. Poindexter said yesterday that he is stepping down as chairman of Constellation Energy Group - almost a year and a half ahead of schedule. Poindexter will remain on the board, and Mayo A. Shattuck III, president and chief executive, will take over as chairman. The announcement was made shortly after 6 p.m. Poindexter announced his resignation as chief executive officer in October when the company abruptly scuttled its plan to split into two independent companies - a fast-growth, unregulated business that would generate and sell power nationwide and a regional electric company that would include its regulated utility Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. He said then that he would remain chairman through October next year.

The same prisoner, known in Maryland as Terrence Kassis Washington, also escaped from Harford County sheriff's deputies last year.

The defense attorney for an aspiring Baltimore rap artist standing trial on federal drug conspiracy charges looked at the jury box during opening statements yesterday and said he had one concern: The panel might be too white to understand his client's story. Attorney Kenneth W. Ravenell said he was confident that the mostly Caucasian jury would not weigh race in reaching a verdict in the case against local rapper Deon Lionnel Smith and his one-time associate, Walter Oriley Poindexter. But, Ravenell said, "You may have to struggle to understand where they were coming from."
