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.

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.

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.

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.

After nearly five weeks of training camp and two preseason games, it's still hard to predict if the Ravens will improve on last year's 8-8 record. On paper, they should because of certain additions they've made during the offseason. Those improvements are clearly noticeable on offense, but the defense appears to have taken a step or two backward. As for special teams, that's always a toss up even though the Ravens have traditionally played well in that area. It's only the preseason, of course, but the recurring question right now is will the Ravens win a lot of games, 42-27, or lose a lot of games, 42-27?

Faced with the threats of viruses like H1N1 influenza and SARS in recent years, scientists including the University of Maryland's Dr. Robert Gallo sought a way to prepare for future outbreaks - founding the Baltimore-based Global Virus Network in 2011. The network aims to address challenges in virus treatment and to prepare the world for potential pandemics, doing so through research, training and advocacy, said its president, Sharon Hrynkow. Organizations like Gallo's Institute of Human Virology at the university's School of Medicine, and others around the world collaborate through the network.

As hundreds walked through Baltimore on Thursday to protest a police shooting in Missouri, uniformed officers were recording their every move. The decision by the Baltimore Police Department to record the march raised questions about how the tapes would be used and why authorities had chosen to record the event. Participants said they saw as many as a dozen officers shadowing the crowds and filming them, almost like a documentary crew, as the protesters walked to the Inner Harbor or spoke with officers.

The Baltimore Orioles defied an order from commissioner Bud Selig to appear at a sanctions hearing, another sign of the team's widening rift with Major League Baseball. The hearing, which was canceled, was disclosed in documents filed in a New York court where the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network is seeking to void a recent decision by a league committee that would force the network to pay substantially higher TV rights fees to the Washington Nationals. The documents also disclose that MASN filed an arbitration claim last month against Major League Baseball seeking $800 million to compensate for damages the network says it would sustain if the panel's decision is allowed to stand.
