Nicole Sherry, head groundskeeper at Camden Yards, was a 13-year-old growing up in Delaware when the legendary Pasquale "Pat" Santarone, who had a similar job for 23 seasons at Memorial Stadium, announced his retirement two months before Opening Day 1991. Santarone, considered one of the leading groundskeepers in the country during his career, had learned the business from his immigrant Italian father, Val, groundskeeper at Elmira, N.Y., then a Double-A-Orioles affiliate, as a 7-year-old cutting grass.

It’s Rolling Papers Week at Louder Now. Wiz Khalifa, hip-hop’s young pothead-in-charge, drops his highly anticipated major-label debut Tuesday. Every day this week, I’m going to analyze the tracks: what works, what doesn’t and what it means for a rap star clearly interested in crossing over to mainstream success. Shouts to Brandon Soderberg and Tom Breihan for the inspiration; their "Weeks" are great examples of close-reading rap. First up: “When I’m Gone” and “On My Level.” THE SKINNY: There’s some necessary context to add when discussing Rolling Papers . For years, Wiz Khalifa, 23, steadily built his Taylor Gang brand without a major label (a well-received project was titled Deal or No Deal )

First, a note: I didn't go to this concert as a reviewer. I bought my ticket with a group of friends, all big-time Wayne heads. We drank beers and spent most of our night JAMMING. But work was never too far away: I took mental notes, so here's my attempt at remembering them.    Most notably, one of the coolest moments of Lil Wayne's gig at 1st Mariner Arena last night was watching the crowd erupt — no, seriously — when Wayne's DJ, DJ Four Five, cued up the deeper-cut fan favorites ( Da Drought 3's "Ride 4 My N-----", Tha Carter III's "Phone Home")

A 25-year-old man who shot and injured a man in a downtown parking lot — and then was promptly arrested by a nearby Baltimore City SWAT team — was charged Sunday with attempted murder. James Edward Johnson had no criminal record before he was picked up by officers about 3 a.m. Sunday in a parking lot next to the city's impound lot adjacent to I-83. Now, he faces charges of first- and second-degree attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and handgun violations, according to police department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

President Barack Obama doesn't strike one as an angry man; rather, he seems professorial, at home on a podium delivering a lecture from on high with the aid of teleprompters. That he has a cool persona might be a good way of putting it. Apparently, that image is a false front, if one is to believe the contents of a new book titled "The Roots of Obama's Rage," written by conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza. A summary of his argument appeared as a cover story in Forbes earlier this month.

A Severn man charged in what the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office called "a cold-blooded execution" was taken into custody on Thursday after he had been released on bond by a District Court judge last week. James William King Jr., 26, who was charged in the August 6 shooting death of Calvin Chi Man Yeung, 40, appeared in a District Court hearing Thursday rescinding his bond set by District Court Judge Jonas Legum last week. King, who has seven prior convictions on charges that include assault, an escape from home detention and drug offenses, posted bond and was released Friday.

A 26-year-old Severn man has been charged with murder and other crimes in a killing that police believe was prompted by road rage. James William King, who has an extensive record of traffic violations and other offenses, was arrested Tuesday night at his home in the 800 block of Crest Hill Drive, according to a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County police. King was charged with first-degree murder, assault, reckless endangerment and two other counts, and was being held without bail at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.

John Crowder, playing for Our Lady of Mt. Carmel High School, was a special and feared presence on the basketball court. He was not demonstrative or overbearing — but there were moments when, at 6 feet, 8 inches, he could control a game, from rebounding to blocking shots to scoring. He was the single player who could beat your whole team, so you had to defend him with all that you had. John had "the gift," and he was one of the rare young people who had learned to harness it and play team basketball.

DURBAN, South Africa — Early in the second half of the Netherlands' World Cup quarterfinal against Brazil, Dutch forward Arjen Robben leaped high in the air, then fell to the ground violently as if he'd been shot. Never mind that Brazilian defender Michel Bastos, the man closest to Robben, never touched him. Referee Yuichi Nishimura bought the act, awarded the Netherlands a free kick that Wesley Sneijder turned into a goal, and a half-hour later, Brazil was on its way home.
