About eight months ago, the Ravens trudged off the field at Paul Brown Stadium, a 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals bringing an end to their season and their streak of five consecutive playoff appearances. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his players have grown tired of hearing about the disappointing 2013 campaign. The 2014 Ravens are a completely different team, they say. The coaching staff has been overhauled. Some veterans moved on, and rookies and second-year players were elevated into starting roles.

Now that the preseason is finally over, the next order of business for the Ravens is finalizing their 53-man roster, which will have to be done by 4 p.m. Saturday. The Ravens are currently at 75 players, so they'll need to make 22 moves over the next 36 hours or so. Two of the moves have already been made for them, as running back Ray Rice (two games) and safety Will Hill (six games) will start the season on the suspended list. That will save - at least temporarily - two players' jobs.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has imposed strict new rules to limit when the state may hold immigrants in Baltimore's jail at the request of federal authorities, dealing a new blow to a national program intended to catch people who are in the country illegally. The governor's policy, which was made public Friday by immigration advocates, comes in response to a recent opinion from the Maryland attorney general's office, which found that detaining immigrants in local jails beyond their scheduled release without probable cause is likely a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Paul Manna got his start booking wedding bands for $50 a week plus 15 percent to 20 percent commission. It was a way into music, which he knew he wanted, but it wasn't quite right. "My heart wasn't in booking wedding bands," said Manna, who, at 47, still remembers vividly the thrill of his first concert when he was 15 — Ted Nugent at the Civic Center in Baltimore. Since he started 24-7 Entertainment in 1997, he's been working to provide that excitement for audiences, booking about 100 shows a year in the Baltimore area.

As the Ebola virus ravages West Africa, two American health workers who contracted the disease in Liberia were airlifted back to the United States to be treated with an experimental drug. They have since recovered. But colleagues of a doctor in Sierra Leone, stricken as he led his country's fight against the virus, decided against giving him the same medicine. He has since died. The worst Ebola outbreak in history, combined with the existence, in small amounts, of untested drugs that might prove effective in combating it, is raising questions about the ethics of fighting an epidemic.

When Shirlé Hale-Koslowski tells people what she does for a living, she is often greeted with a blank stare. She is the owner and sole employee of Four Corners Cuisine, a Baltimore-based private chef service Hale-Koslowski operates out of the kitchens of her 10 clients. People have heard of personal chefs for the rich and famous, she says, but she caters to the middle class, not the multimillionaire. Each meal - groceries and labor included - averages $10 to $12 and includes an entree and a side.

The family of a man fatally shot by FBI agents conducing a surveillance earlier this year on Reisterstown Road is questioning police tactics and the finding by prosecutors that the use of deadly force during a car stop was justified. While relatives of Jameel Kareem Ofurum Harrison acknowledge that he had a criminal record, they deny police descriptions of him as a gang member, and say they didn't give him a chance to get out his car and surrender before firing 19 rounds, hitting the 34-year-old six times.

Erin Sharp arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport a little less than two hours before her 9:40 a.m. flight to San Diego on Sunday, timed so that her 11-month-old son would zonk out on the plane and they would arrive home with the afternoon to spare. Instead, Sharp wouldn't leave the Anne Arundel County airport for another nine hours, she said, after an enormous ticketing line for Southwest Airlines caused her and other passengers to miss their flights and the airline couldn't immediately get her onto another.

A city councilman is questioning a $1.6 million deal for a St. Louis company to provide prescription drugs to city workers, arguing that the work should go to local pharmacies. City Councilman Robert W. Curran said St. Louis-based Express Scripts, which holds a multimillion-dollar contract to provide prescription drug benefits to Baltimore City employees, has engaged in "deceptive practices," including overbilling the city for prescription drugs a decade ago. "Express Scripts did shortchange us," Curran told the city's spending panel Wednesday morning during a pre-meeting in a City Hall conference room.

Word of an attack in Federal Hill appeared Monday on a neighborhood Facebook page, warning that a man had been stabbed early Sunday after being chased for his wallet. As news spread, different accounts emerged. A posting on the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association page said that, according to Baltimore police, the victim had been seen "staggering around" the 1200 block of Wall St. and had gotten into an "altercation" with a group of people. Then another posting reported additional information — that turned out to be wrong and led some to believe another man had been stabbed Monday outside the bars on Charles Street.
