The Maryland U.S. attorney's office is pursuing a new drug case against a Baltimore man, despite having recently sent him to prison for life. The move is raising questions about the government's motivation and the strength of the earlier convictions, which the defendant, David "Chicken" Ellerby, has appealed to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. Some say it simply emphasizes how dangerous the agency believes Ellerby to be. The 36-year-old has beaten dozens of state charges, including murder and attempted murder, and law enforcement agents consider him one of the city's most dangerous residents.

More than two years after indicting a former online gambling mogul, federal prosecutors in Maryland say they continue to pursue his extradition on charges of running an illegal gambling business and money laundering. The disclosure, made Friday in U.S. District Court in Maryland, is contained in the first filing in the case since Calvin Ayre, 53, and others associated with his Bodog.com operation were indicted in February 2012. All four defendants remain at large, and Ayre — who is a Canadian citizen — is listed as one of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's "Most Wanted" fugitives In the filing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard C. Kay asks for the case to be marked as administratively closed while extradition proceedings play out. Kay wrote that in July, he and a defense attorney had reached an agreement in principle to resolve the case but were unable to finalize it. "The parties intend to continue to try to find a resolution that will not require extradition of the defendants, but, in the meantime, I am pursuing extradition," wrote Kay, who added that Ayre is believed to be in Canada or Antigua.

A man being pursued by a state trooper near Churchville yesterday lost control of his car and crashed into a minivan, killing a 66-year-old Harford County resident who had pulled off the road to get out of the way of the pursuit. William O. Thomas of the 3100 block of Ady Road in Street died at the scene, said Maj. Greg Shipley, a state police spokesman. The 28-year-old driver of the other car, whose identity was not released, was in critical condition last night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Johns Hopkins University scientists are building a telescope meant to look at space in a way no one has before, hoping to probe the blackness between planets, stars and galaxies, into deep time and the mystery of how it all began. For decades, scientists have used telescopes to plumb the origins of the universe, but have not applied the scale or precision of the project that will use a four-telescope array called the Cosmology Large-Angular Scale Surveyor, or CLASS, being built now at the university's Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy.

An armed carjacking suspect was arrested yesterday after the stolen vehicle - pursued by a deputy sheriff - crashed into a tree along Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park, police said. The carjacking victim, Paul Elliott, a 40-year-old driver for an airport shuttle service, told Anne Arundel County police he was robbed of his car by a gunman wearing a camouflage mask - one of two occupants of a white vehicle that collided with Elliott near Digiulian Boulevard and Dorsey Road. Elliott told police he was southbound on Digiulian about 10:15 a.m. when the white vehicle was driven out of a driveway on Dorsey Road, turned slowly into the intersection and collided with his 1996 Dodge Stratus.

Stock booster:In a survey of 800 companies, Mercer Management Consulting found that companies that made money by expanding business operations between 1991 and 1996 saw their market value rise by 21 percent, compared with a 12 percent growth rate by companies that downsized to profitability. "Cost-cutting is still being pursued -- and may be required from time to time -- but the stock market appears to be giving fewer rewards to companies that still think they can shrink to greatness," says Mercer's Eric Almquist.

City pursued charges against club owner I commend The Baltimore Sun for reporting on the city liquor board's revocation of Ultralounge's license ("Liquor board revokes license of Mt. Vernon bottle club," Nov. 14). This is an example of what can be accomplished when local government and concerned citizens join forces. Unfortunately, I must point to one factual error. The article states that "civil and criminal charges related to zoning violations have not been pursued" against club owner Sammy Hyun Paik.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - While growing up in San Diego, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones idolized Tony Gwynn as a player, then later gained greater admiration for him after getting to know the Padres Hall of Famer as a person. So the news of Gwynn's death Monday at age 54, after a four-year battle with cancer, hit Jones especially hard. "I've known the man for most of my adult life, so it's tough when someone passes like that, especially the impact he'd had on not just myself, but on countless major leaguers, and just people in general, in the San Diego community," Jones said.

As secretary of state, John Kerry has left no doubt that he is ready, willing and able to go anywhere and do anything to make headway in his unenviable pursuit of progress in international stalemates. His perseverance in seeking to salvage the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian peace quest, and to deter Iran's development of nuclear weapons, Syria's use of chemical weapons, and most recently Russia's land-grab in Ukraine, has made him a veritable diplomatic whirling dervish. His diligence and patience, however, have not yet been matched by success in his 15 months in the Obama administration's highest-profile cabinet post.

Gay rights advocates and the state legislator who introduced legislation this session to ban so-called "gay conversion therapy" in Maryland have withdrawn the bill, saying they will instead pursue regulatory oversight of the controversial practice. "If we can do this without legislation, I am all about it," said Baltimore County Del. John Cardin, the bill's sponsor, in a statement Friday. "I am not interested in the glory. I'm interested in solving problems. " Cardin's bill would have banned mental health professionals, but not unlicensed church clergy or therapists, from engaging in efforts to change a youth's sexual orientation or gender identity.

SARASOTA, FLA. - If you want another indication of how the landscape has changed over the past month at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, consider the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon. It was just another exhibition game, or so it seemed. The Orioles play 30 of them and - for the most part - they don't generate a whole lot of buzz, unless a marquee player gets hurt or something really strange makes its way onto the SportsCenter rail. Neither of those things happened on Saturday, but it was an afternoon on high alert after news started to trickle out that free-agent pitcher Ervin Santana had reduced his contract demands and was about to choose his new team from a very short list that included the Orioles.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The ink has only just dried on the Orioles' monumental four-year deal with starter Ubaldo Jimenez, but the club remains interested in acquiring at least one other big-ticket free agent. The Orioles have intensified their pursuit of free-agent designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-handed starter Ervin Santana, according to industry sources. The club has been linked to both players throughout the offseason, but did not appear to be in serious negotiations recently as Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal, the largest and longest contract given to a free-agent pitcher in franchise history.

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

George Kunz should have slowed by now. At 66, the former All-Pro tackle should be golfing or fishing or appearing at autograph shows, a battle-scarred old Colt telling tales about his time in the NFL trenches. Not Kunz. He's an attorney, all 6 feet 5 and 255 pounds of him, just three years out of law school and determined to make this career as estimable as his first. A Colt from 1975 through 1980, he anchored the offensive line and helped Baltimore win three straight AFC East championships.
