In the wake of Russia's increasingly belligerent behavior in Ukraine, President Barack Obama delivered a ringing declaration of NATO's support for the Baltic countries Wednesday in the capital of Estonia, a former Soviet Republic and current NATO member that also has reason to fear Russian aggression. Mr. Obama vowed the U.S. and NATO would honor the alliance's pledge of collective defense and back it up with a beefed-up troop presence and air patrols. He also pointed to NATO's decision to create a rapid reaction force and pre-positioning of military equipment in the region as evidence of the alliance's resolve to defend its members.

A grievance filed by Baltimore County teachers last fall over having to work extra-long hours because of new education initiatives has been resolved, school and teacher's union officials announced Friday. The grievance, filed in November on behalf of the county's 8,700 teachers, complained that their workload had ballooned, in large part because lesson plans had not been provided until just weeks before they were to be taught. Abby Beytin, president of the Teachers Association of Baltimore County, said that county school Superintendent Dallas Dance addressed teachers' concerns by giving them more notice of changes this academic year in curriculum and other educational initiatives.

State, Annapolis city and public housing officials, and residents appear close to resolving their disputes over the new Bloomsbury Square complex, which could clear the way for public housing residents to move into the state-built waterfront community. Just when remains a question, though. The latest tentative mid-August move-in date passed without residents budging from their 62-year-old public housing complex, which sits next door and is due to be razed for a $26 million expansion of the Lowe House Office Building.

"We expect merit will determine who will play and who will lead. But coaches and athletics administrators themselves are not always selected, it would appear, entirely on their merits." Myles Brand NCAA president, on the lack of blacks in college coaching and sports administrative positions "I didn't call my kids goons, or nobody else goons. I said every coach in the world sent kids in to take hard fouls and ... the media went crazy on it. I thought we resolved it. Phil and I resolved it. We sent money to Katrina and that's what we did to resolve it. But you want to sing that song?

Bret BarberieWhat he would be doing if there were no strike: Barberie, acquired from Florida in a trade in the off-season, would be in his first camp with the Orioles. Barberie, a switch-hitter who batted .301 with 20 doubles and five homers for the Marlins last year, likely will be the Orioles' regular second baseman when the strike is resolved. New manager Phil Regan has talked about using Barberie to bat second, behind Curtis Goodwin or Brady Anderson, to break up the succession of left-handed hitters at the top of the lineup.

Management at the Baltimore jail held "town hall meetings" with Black Guerrilla Family gang members to get tips on how to better operate the institution, a former corrections officer told the FBI as part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation. The allegation, contained in recently filed court documents, is the latest portrayal of the gang's extensive influence at the jail before federal authorities stepped in last year. Since then, 14 corrections officers and 10 gang members have pleaded guilty.

A glitch at the Baltimore 911 call center caused wait times of a minute or more for some callers reporting crimes and emergencies Monday night, city officials said. The issue was resolved shortly before 11 p.m., the city's Office of Emergency Management announced. Callers who got an answering machine were asked to stay on the line until a dispatcher picked up, while those who get a busy tone were told to hang up and call back. "We're asking for your patience," said Scott Brillman, the city's acting 911 center director.

Under intense pressure to do something about the collapsing Iraqi state, President Barack Obama announced that he will send up to 300 special operations forces there to assess the situation and provide training and support to Iraq's armed forces. Meanwhile, he has positioned warships in the area and left open the possibility of air strikes in a battle zone that straddles the Iraq-Syria border. We worry that even this degree of involvement is a mistake. The conflict is transnational and sectarian, with Sunni Muslim groups that had been fighting the murderous Bashar Assad regime in Syria spilling into Iraq to fight the Shiite-dominated forces of President Nouri al-Maliki, whose policies have been oppressive toward the Sunni minority there.

A Baltimore judge ruled this week that she will not enforce her decision to dismiss a multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed by the former developers of the "Superblock" until an appellate court rules on the case. City officials expressed disappointment with the ruling, which they said could further slow development of the long-stalled project on Baltimore's west side. "It's always frustrating to me when the legal process is protracted and it prevents meaningful development in the city," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.

Goucher's season could have ended literally and metaphorically on April 14 when sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel died of injuries he suffered during a hit-and-run the day before. But once he had the backing of the Gabriel family, coach Brian Kelly knew the campaign would go on. What he was uncertain of was whether the same could be said about the team. “Immediately following with the Catholic game [on April 17], we were purely playing off of emotion and energy,” he recalled.

It's dismaying that the Morgan State University board appears to have summarily dismissed a proposed collaboration with Towson University on new joint degree programs for students of landscape architecture, city and regional planning and construction management. Maryland needs more qualified workers in such fields, and on the face of it a partnership between Morgan and Towson to provide them would seem to make a lot of sense. Yet there's little chance of that happening before the long-running court dispute between a coalition of students and alumni at the state's four historically black colleges and universities and the Maryland Higher Education Commission is resolved.

HACKENSACK, N.J. - The case of a man held for months on charges of providing fake IDs to two of the Sept. 11 hijackers may be resolved this week, authorities said. Mohamed el-Atriss, 46, has been in the Passaic County Jail since August, and his bail was doubled to $500,000 in November after a state judge heard evidence in secret. Last month, the Passaic County prosecutor's office referred to "national security" and invoked the specter of terrorism to try to keep the high bail and the evidence secret.

Criminal suspects in Maryland will have free access to lawyers at their first court appearances as soon as July, a top judiciary official said Tuesday, as the state struggles to comply with a court order that has been delayed for months amid concerns about its cost. The change, mandated by the Maryland Court of Appeals as a way to treat suspects more fairly before trial, has challenged all three branches of government. The General Assembly could not agree on a plan to restructure the pretrial release system, opting instead to put aside $10 million to pay for lawyers.
