Gino Marchetti , the Hall of Fame defensive end for the Baltimore Colts, is bringing his beloved burgers back to Baltimore after a 20-year hiatus. Marchetti, 84, opened his first fast-food joint on North Point Road in 1959, at the height of his football career. By 1982, when he sold the chain to Marriott International for $48 million, there were 469 Gino's franchises nationwide dishing up the popular Gino Giant, a two-fisted meal with a special pink sauce that gourmands still rave about today.

After a long absence, Gino's , the beloved Baltimore-born hamburger chain, is back — but not in its hometown. At least not yet. Gino's Burgers & Chicken, as it's now known, celebrated the grand opening last weekend in King of Prussia, Pa., of what its developers intend to be the anchor store of a relaunched franchise. Established under the name Gino's in 1959 and named for its co-founder, the Baltimore Colt Hall of Fame defensive end Gino Marchetti , Gino's occupies in the hearts and stomachs of many Baltimoreans the same sentimental slot that Barry Levinson had for his beloved Hilltop Diner.

The mourners filled the street yesterday in West Baltimore because Philip Berrigan gave focus to the anti-war movement 40 years ago. They packed a black parish because Mr. Berrigan confronted racism and patriarchy and injustice long after the civil rights movement. They braved sub-freezing temperatures to say farewell to an artilleryman and infantry lieutenant turned Roman Catholic priest, remembered as a husband, father, peace activist and prisoner. "I didn't know him but I've been a longtime admirer of him so I came here out of respect," said Michael Redmond, 50, who drove from Philadelphia to join several hundred mourners.

PHILADELPHIA - Americans worried about their jobs and economic prospects are raiding their piggybanks and spare-change drawers - to the tune of billions of coins. The U.S. Mint, which produces all the coins in circulation, says that with the economic downturn the nation will consume vastly fewer new coins. It has begun laying off 357 workers in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Denver and other places to curtail coin production and protect its profits for the U.S. Treasury. The Mint believed as recently as this summer that the nation would need 23 billion new pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in 2002.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. -- The Montgomery County, Pa., district attorney will not pursue criminal charges against Richard P. Glunk, a plastic surgeon whose 18-year-old patient died two days after undergoing liposuction in his King of Prussia office. "There was insufficient evidence of criminal negligence to warrant filing homicide charges against Dr. Glunk or any of the medical people who treated Amy Fledderman," District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said late Friday. Fledderman, of Newtown Square, Pa., died May 25 of complications from the fat-suctioning surgery on her chin and abdomen.
