Unlikely as it may sound, a subpoena to testify before a grand jury can be a badge of honor for a reporter - a sign that she's gotten the goods or angered the powers that be. Not in this case. Katie Leahan, a reporter and weekend anchor who often covers police and crime for WJZ-TV, is among those who have been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury looking into the handling of a secret fund by Edward T. Norris when he was Baltimore's police commissioner. Questions have centered on Norris' use of the fund to pay for thousands of dollars in gifts, meals and trips for himself, friends and colleagues.

SO HERE IT IS: the inevitable and obligatory Jayson Blair column from a newspaper columnist. Blair is the New York Times reporter who is the latest in what (we journalist types hope) is a short line of gifted fiction writers who, for some odd reason, choose to work as reporters at newspapers or magazines. He resigned May 1. His series of miscues, fanciful inventions and plagiarism has prompted yet another round of angst from those in the business and inspired a call for truth in journalism.

The two young women were standing outside the courthouse entrance, pancake makeup on their pretty faces, microphones in their hands and the gleam of the huntress in their eyes.They were flanked by several of the large trade-school dropouts who make their living aiming TV cameras at anything that might make a bleeding blip on the nightly news.

The leader of a local group that wants to buy The Sun denied yesterday a published report that it is in "serious negotiations" to buy the daily newspaper, though he says he still hopes to eventually get a chance to bid for the publication. Theodore G. Venetoulis, a publisher and former Baltimore County executive who is leading the Baltimore Media Group that hopes to buy the newspaper, said an article in yesterday's Examiner is "totally untrue." "There are no negotiations going on," said Venetoulis, who says he has been unable to get The Sun's parent, Tribune Co., to disclose financial information about the newspaper for his investors to study.
